If you want to get more customers for your business you better understand the way business works.

Before you can get paying customers you need to have traffic. If your online then your probably trying to build internet traffic to one of your websites. If you want to get more customers you gotta pull in traffic like a company does and not like a stay at home mom that builds a business like a hobby. No knock on the stay at home moms but most do NOT have the budget or marketing resources to compete with companies like Organo Gold (selling coffee) or Melaleuca (selling house goods and personal health).

Until now……

Get More Customers – Go Online

Get more customers

The internet is a huge place to tackle. Many try and fail and many other try and just quit. Before you go on and quit or just stop marketing your business I want you to look at the picture above for my one website that is getting more social love on Twitter than HUGE network marketing companies like Organo Gold and Melaleuca.

I'm just a one man shop with multiple websites, this blog being one. I decided to focus and learn how to get some social exposure and it's going viral. On twitter I have been getting more mentions in my own name, brand recognition, versus these bigger multi-million dollar companies.

How can one person do this?

Wanna Get More Customers – First Get Educated

If this is your first time trying to market online or if you have struggled one of the main reasons your not getting more customers is due to the fact your trying to use the internet when you don't have an instruction manual. If you truly want to get more customer read the basics to HOW to market online.

Education is key to survive online especially if that is going to be one of the major places where you will get more customers. Maybe you have already tapped through your entire list of friends and family and understand no business is built just through them these days. Network marketing is no different in that many fail because their list of friends and family just aren't the best in terms of building a team or getting more customers. It gets worse if your a career network marketer who has burned bridges or cried wolf too much (greatest business ever speech).

Let's get educated and figure out what you need to be doing online.

First off, get traffic by learning what I do. Instead of me charging you a per hourly rate to coach you why not just graduate from my free 7 day bootcamp series that details the steps to what I do online to build a business.

My bootcamp will walk you through the different fundamentals you need to learn to understand how business online is conducted.

After you are done with that it's off to:

Wanna Get More Customers Online – Screen Them

One of the things I've learned being online since 2008 (started network marketing ins 2006 but online in 2008) is that customers are everywhere and there are good ones and bad ones.

I made the mistake of treating each online customer the same and was spending way too much time on tire kickers, what we call in the industry as people who have no intention of buying but wanted to just use up as much of your precious time as possible. Don't get me wrong, tire kickers are essential to any business but the part that messes people up is not identifying who are high quality prospects (leads) and tire kickers (digital data, or junk traffic).

Every single business owner out there building a business online to understands to get more customers for the long run you must educate your clients and also screen them at the same time.

Unless your running a charity, understanding the difference from “data” to “prospect” is huge. Spending too much time with “data” means your spending time with people who have no intention of buying or will buy to use your free trial period then be on their way. Prospects are those who are truly interested and should have your full attention.

So how does a home business that is limited by the hours they can build it – really get more customers…..

Stop wasting time with tire kickers and spend more time with qualified prospects by using a professional service. Many will try and do it all on themselves but remember…..

If  your a business owner your an accountant, sales rep, marketing rep, technical support,  customer service…. there are only so much you can do without sacrificing your own sanity. If you continue to spend most of your time in activities in your business that makes money you will succeed in the long run.

The banner below with MyPhoneRoom is the service I personally use to screen out “tire kickers” and build my business like a professional outfit vs garage shop.

@Lawrence Tam  Dude is it just me..or is everybody like spamming thru their comments?But anyways,great article Lawrence & your right concentrating on what’s going to make you money is what will help you succeed. 🙂

     i think the problem @David_Simmons8796:disqus  is that people as a whole have no clue how to market. it’s not their fault. sometimes it takes a long time to have it sink in and i can relate in that case. the “needy” mental state of having to pitch and sell at every corner. connect with cool people like yourself and the spammy stuff will go away in due time.

Yes, good ideas of giving people education first, but if they don’t take action on it, it’s not going to help. How do you motivate them to get past their tire kicker stage?

    Lawrence Tam · June 25, 2011 at 7:41 pm

     yep, everything in life revolves with education and action taking. It’s like getting a degree and not applying that degree to a specialized field to make some money.

    motivation in past experience has been through story telling. if you can tap into someone’s pain then that will have them start the thinking process of doing instead of complaining.

    but i feel motivation in this method of bringing a new people out of that phase of thinking must be done in automation as it’s time consuming
