Let us give a little background here. Firstly, I am a network marketer, yawn, or gag, or cheer, depending on how you feel fit. I am in a bit of a dilemma right now though, as a network marketer, we need to build a downline organization, and then help the people below us build theirs, the best way, is complete devotion, one at a time, until they are better at it then we are. But, recently, my Network Marketing Company, updated their pay plan...they are introducing a Break Even Bonus, which basically means, they will pay 50% of the point volume of my customers orders, into my auto-ship, which I need to maintain my pin level qualification. Now, we have great products, but I am having a little trouble advertising the products, without presenting the opportunity, which not everyone is interested in. So, I was wondering my dear friends on MyLot, what do you recommend for advertising Just the Products? Thank you in advance for your assistance, I know I will get wonderfully great responses, and I appreciate each and every one of you. Cheers.

I think it depends on what the product is, exactly. We have two companies that we have retail products for. One my hubby is beginning to be able to sell, and the other, well we have an idea of how to get into people's hands, but it will have to be when the weather is warmer. The product that is beginning to pick up is a car care line. Since he loves cars, it is easy for him to have casual conversations. Since some of the products also work at cleaning metal products, he carries a piece, like a copper tea kettle or a silver plate tea pot with him and works on it at down times at his job. People are curious, they ask, and he can show them first hand what the product does. Like I said, it depends on the product.

You might have something there. We have many products, Energy Drink, Vitamins, Minerals, Water Catalyst, Diet Cookies, Skin Care, all sorts, and I know sampling is a great way to increase sales, which is what your husband does with the cleaning, he is demonstrating a sample, and that works wonders, and I sample products, when I can, not the easiest thing to do at the moment, but I think I will keep it up, and maybe I will make a flyer offering free samples. Thank you very much for your input, I greatly appreciate you.
