Tactics used in referral marketing
What comes to your mind when you see the question above?
Are you currently using the right or wrong tactics?
Don’t get it twisted, tactics and strategy are two different word that works with each other.
Strategy is that plan that you designed to achieve your goals while tactics are those actions you intended to achieve your goals, one allows you to plan and the other allows you to take action in other to achieve your goals and it’s obvious that there is no action without plan, and plans without actions will actually yield nothing.
Many people are actually using wrong tactics to promote their business, thinking it is the best for them but not knowing how much it kills their chances of getting Referrals to their programs, this includes :
• Lying to people’s about the potentials of the program that they promote,
• Using fake flyers this are the flyers that actually defines what is different from what they are promoting,
• And others….
If you’re willing to get Referrals to your program, then try as much as possible to stay away from the points highlighted above and other things that are related to the point mentioned as it drives people away from joining you in what you promotes.
• Let people know the real image of what you promotes and not wrapping it with lies
• Let the people know the fact about what you are promoting.
• Let them know the important of what you are promoting.
• Let them know how it may help them
• Let them know how to go about it, by giving them a detailed explanation on how the business works without diluting it with lies.
• Don’t introduce the program to people with amount of earnings that isn’t realizable. Many individuals have developed this habit in order to get Referrals quickly, but not knowing that if they are convinced to join with lies, they will surely quit in no time, even if you use this tactics to catch their attention “which is not adviseable“, try to create a medium that explains everything to them before they join.
• Care’s about the number of people you help with what you promotes and not the number of sales or referrals you get.
Promote only legit programs/platforms
This is the most reason that pulls people away when it comes to the matter of online business as many internet users out there has bombard the internet with scam opportunities.
• Don’t rush to join and promote any program without knowing whether it’s legit or not. When it comes to the matter of making money online, there are thousands of websites that exists in each ways to make money online, but only few of them are legit while many others are scams that will only waste your time without getting paid at the end of the day.
There are many ways to identify a scam website which includes:
• Potential of earnings: this can be done by considering the amount of money the website promised you to make on a daily basis especially when it comes to free money making websites, imagine a website that promise members of making $3500 daily without investment, if you join and promote such business, then you are promoting scam in intentionally.
• Explore the internet for honest reviews about a specific business and see what others are saying about the business. This is the best way to know whether a program is legit or not.
Finally; what wraps everything about promoting a referral program is “Consistency“. Don’t give up on that program you are promoting no matter how frustrating it may be as gain will surely come after pain.
