How I got 20+ new customers for my Thirty-One Business in 2 days!

If you have a product biz or just stuff in your house you want to sell I highly suggest doing a ⚡️ flash sale ⚡️

Just a few days ago, my little VIP group was like 42 people or something I can't even remember it was so small... I know have 27+ new customers (THANK YOU LADIES) and new connections for my biz!

HowToGetNewCustomersByJuliaSlikeDirectSalesBusinessCoach

And yet I did all of that in an organic, non-icky, non-sleezy way...because I was just listening to myself and having fun!
 

I simply decided to host a FLASH SALE.... a limited time sale with crazy savings (check with your companies policies for rules on this) and made a few posts on my personal profile and sent emails to my 1. Coaching List 2. Thirty-One Customer List 3. Thirty-One Team (Present + Past).

People literally came out of the woodwork!

Some who love thirty-one already, some who have never bought it before -- and some who are on my team and now a good deal when they see one, lol! #addictedto31.

In internet marketing we learn to ''build a funnel'', and ''generate leads'' and blah-blah....

and I'm all FOR those SYSTEMS but, I got in business to BUILD RELATIONSHIPS!

Because back in the day when barely anyone I knew was an entrepreneur and I made all my income sitting behind a computer designing wedding invitations (which I loved) to make more money I had to SIT MORE behind my computer....
Then thirty-one came into my life when my daughter was 3 (just old enough I could finally ''leave'' her) and to make money I went to peoples houses, helped them and their friends shop... while often drinking wine and eating yummy food while having great conversations. One party people came in their jammies (me too) and did the conga line (I have the video to prove it) it was a BLAST!

 

I love people!!!!!

I love helping people simplify their life. Our products and our opportunity do that! And I loved not having to sit behind my computer MORE to earn MORE income!

 

So my point is.... as both a direct seller and an online marketing teacher /biz coach I'm sharing some insight to this experience.... because, I didn't sit down and think....

HOW CAN I FIND MORE CUSTOMERS?

HOW CAN I BUILD MORE RELATIONSHIPS?

HOW CAN I ''FUNNEL'' PEOPLE?

Honestly, I told 2 friends recently I wanted to join THEIR MLM team (to get the amazing kits they have and start using the products) but I wasn't going to buy the kits until I had that CASH from selling the pile of products I already have.... see I really had no motivation to sell them otherwise, hence the massive stock-pile.

And, I finally didn't care what people thought if I joined 2 more direct sales companies (cuz I already have 3 in my ''tool kit'').

Well, after about 100 new people joined my VIP Group I thought... WAIT! I should be asking them questions upon request and see how we can help each other AFTER the sale. This is my opportunity to begin to build a relationship with them..... this is the funnel thingy, without the funnel! I've spent months mapping out customer journeys and here I just created one on the fly!

So back to wanting to start these other 2 businesses and why I was making a ''cash injection'' with my FLASH SALE to fund them....

I've learned a LOT about building businesses ONLINE and one thing I learned is people should do them DEBT FREE because DEBT SUCKS!

There is also a lot of talk about.... invest the money and it will come back to you, put it on a cc, borrow from a family member, take a loan.... and I've done ALL THAT SHIZ and let me tell you I have massive debt to prove it and I don't like it ONE BIT.

I think people should SELL $HIT to PAY FOR $HIT.

And I think more people should be teaching people this!!!!

Debt is not cool.

Stress is not cool.

Straining your marriage because you make your partner pay all your bills.... NOT COOL!!!!!

Neglecting your kids to work to pay off debt, SUPER NOT COOL!

So what's my point?

I'm not sure, lol! These thoughts just come to me and I just share them --- and I guess that's the point to get you to think about it too.

Follow your fun!

Selling my thirty-one stash to buy some cute clothes (that fights human trafficking) and make-up for my 40-year-old-face (including a FREE $280 professional make-up artist brush set... FEELS FUN to me!

Getting our awesome products in the hands of my new customers feels FUN to me!

Not ''thinking'' about HOW to do business feels FUN to me!

Taking my daughter out for sushi last night and getting as many rolls as we wanted plus dessert (she offered to pay for part, sweet thing) knowing that I just paid for it with the pictures I posted before we hopped in the car.... FUN!

Y'ALL, it is FUN to make money.

And I'm pretty sure my customers in my sale are having FUN spending money (and saving $) with me.

E-V-E-R-Y-D-A-Y you should have a WAY to make money!!!!

Now, that doesn't mean that everyday you are making money, neccessarily - but it means E-V-E-R-Y-D-A-Y you have the ABILITY and means to because you have these 2 things...

1. Something to sell

2. Someone to sell it to

So I'm challenging you to to think outside of the box.

Stop doing what you ''think'' you should do, your coach ''thinks'' you should do, your family ''thinks'' what you should do, what the last you tube video told you, you ''should'' do, what that last webinar you attended told you, you ''should'' do.

Forget it all!!!!!!

It doesn't matter. All that matters is you KEEP GOING, KEEP TRYING, KEEP SELLING, KEEP IT FUN and and if you have more than one business don't be afraid of what people think. Sell the stuff that makes you happy and do the work that lights you up inside.

Making money is COOL!

Supporting your family is COOL!

Giving back to others is COOL!

Building a relationship-based business is COOL!

Having the cash to buy from others is COOL!

And most importantly truly caring about your clients + customers is COOL!

 

So, I'm tickled pink that my Thirty-One Flash Sale has been a success and given me the opportunity to REWARD my loyal customers and create relationships with new ones, that I hope become raving fans for life! And I hope I've inspired you to create your own fun ''cash injection'' with a flash sale!

I am in complete shock and utter awe!

13 days ago I began my search for beta testers for my brand new marketing course. You may have seen me post it here. 

I had 10 days until class began.

My goal, 100 applications.

I remember PUSHING just to get to 30 (ugh why does Luke, my fellow course launcher classmate, have more than 200 and I "just" have 30!?) NO FAIR!

But I was determined to hit my goal and I wasn't stopping until I did.

I spent an entire week pimping my application.

I invited people to "get out of overwhelm and into action" with me. I could post in one group and get crickets not one bite, but I found one group where I got 80 people wanting more info and a few other groups were people responded. 

I always hear my mentor Cindy Monroe say "If they're not saying yes, you're not asking the right people" when it comes to booking parties. Cindy says there is always somebody waiting for you to ask them and where there is one there is more. 

I've had this idea of a marketing course in my head for 2 years now and I knew it was now or never!!! We were supposed to launch our course by the end of May.

Guess, what? 

School is out June 1st, a half day at that.

CRAP!

How the hell am I going to pull off this course BEFORE school lets out?

I guess I'll just wait, maybe in Sept when she's back in school and I have more time to build my list, then I'll start.

Screw that! I'm going for it.

It's "beta" after all, and it's all an experiment. I KNOW without a doubt what I have to teach people WILL change their business which will change their life. I can't keep it to myself anymore.

The applications keep rolling in.

I hit 100...120...150....170....200 WOAH!!!!! 

I prayed for these people, God led them to me, how could I NOT help them all?

And so I listened to my heart and said "screw it" I'm just accepting everyone. However, this was only after I spent hours, and hours pouring over surveys, there was no way I could get through all of them and I didn't want to miss someone that needed it.

So anyone and everyone that applied was accepted.

With one caveat.... THEY HAD TO DO THE WORK!

If they didn't? I'll kick them out of class.

Class has been in session just 5 days, now. Remember 2 weeks ago I didn't even have ANY applicants and now I have more than 225 ambitious students who want to learn from ME!

I've hear students say things like:
• I was so excited after our office hours I pitched to the Huff Post and was accepted 3hrs later
• I haven't written a blog post since 2012 and I'm so going to do one now
• I'm off to the post office to register my PO Box so I can start sending emails to my tribe
• This is actually FUN you make it so simple
• If I didn't know I was going to get kicked out for not doing my homework I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have done it

I am so grateful for the opportunity to learn and grow with them. We have a freaking FANTASTIC group of business owners.

The VIBE of my TRIBE is off the hook! 

And I can not wait to see what the accomplish in the next 3 weeks and share the surprise I have waiting for them and ONLY them! 

These people are VERY special to me and thank God everyday for bringing them into my life.

I want to encourage you even when it feels like an uphill battle to build your business online to keep putting one foot in front of the other.

Listen to those intuitive nudges.

Follow your heart.

Keep the faith.

Keep hustling.

and I promise you...

Your tribe WILL find you!
