Fast Success With Stanley Home Products

Stanley Home Products is one of the oldest network marketing companies around. It has been around since 1931, making it 70 years old this year. It was founded by Frank Stanley Beverage in Westfield, Massachusetts, but is now headquartered in Agawam, Massachusetts. The company originally sold quality household cleaners, brushes and mops, but has now branched out to home care, personal care and wellness products.

SHP products are sold exclusively through its network of Representatives, who build their own business by sharing the products with others. The traditional way of selling Stanley Home Products has always been through the party plan, which the company claims to have been leaders in inventing all those years ago. Nowadays reps can sell one-to-one, over the telephone, or online, but the most common method of growing a business is still the party plan.

What They Don’t Tell You At SHP

Party plans do not grow serious businesses in the 21st century unfortunately. In order to make big bucks with SHP you will need to be speaking to hundreds of people every single week, and adding 2-3 people into your business every single day. With the party plan this is almost impossible, because they are time consuming and expensive, and very few people know enough friends or family to make this sustainable.

The Key To Fast Success

If you want to really hit the big time you have to move with the times and embrace the power of the internet. Unlike parties, the internet gives you instant access to hundreds, even thousands, of people all over the world, from the comfort of your own home, at the click of a button. Even better, if you learn the right tactics and marketing strategies, all these people will be contacting YOU, asking you about Stanley Home Products, and begging you to let them come aboard with you in your business.

Party plans are in the past – the future of network marketing is the internet.

Why Consider Network Marketing As Our Home-Based Business?

Posted on September 14, 2017 in Uncategorized

We are not asking that anyone get involved in network marketing and change everything immediately. We are however, suggesting that people consider the addition of the right home-based Network Marketing business starting their journey of financial success in a different direction. Having a home-based business is not a new concept. Network Marketing is not a new concept. Having a home-based Network Marketing business is not a new concept. However, never in the history of our country has the concept been so prevalent and is fast becoming the norm rather than the exception!

The reason is very simple. Our concept is providing American’s with what they want; control of their time and financial opportunities proportionate to their abilities and effort.

With the right home-based Network Marketing business, one has all of the benefits and advantages of a home-based business and unlimited financial opportunity usually associated with a large traditional business.

Employees and Debt
Rather than having several employees working with other employees under one roof for the benefit of someone else’s company, with Network Marketing, we have a bunch of home-based business owners, working under their own roof, networking with other home-based business owners, all working for their own companies. This concept provides an incentive and opportunity of multiplication and duplication for each home-based business owner equal to or greater than that of the owners of traditional businesses with multiple employees and locations, with out all the hassles associated with traditional businesses! It requires no debt, no employees and no complicated administrative procedures. With Network Marketing, we work with and for other people and other people work with and for us.

What is Network Marketing?
When you purchase a product or service, usually over 50% of the retail cost is associated with marketing! That would be any cost associated with getting someone to buy the product plus any cost incurred once it is produced by the factory. With Network Marketing, the products are shipped directly to the consumer from the factory. Those monies normally associated with marketing are paid to several home-based Network Marketing businesses owners which had previous network marketing or internet marketing influence in the referral of the customer!

Are the products less expensive?
Most customers will not buy inferior products and there is limited benefit to paying a little less for a product on the short run. Let’s assume that you sold yourself a product, ordered it from a Network Marketing company and in return the company paid you a 50% commission or rebate. In effect you’ve saved 50% on the products you purchased. That may save you a few dollars. Although saving money is important, the concept of earning money on products that we are already buying is far more exciting.

The concept is to redistribute the marketing dollar!

Imagine having a network of thousands of customers purchasing quality products or services each month where you receive a few dollars per month for each customer! Remember, these are products or services that we are all already buying, or should be, and this is money that is normally paid to others. In essence, the simple process of referring other customers who also refer other customers to a Network Marketing company, presents an opportunity for a redistribution of the wealth to you and I, the consumer!

Traditional Marketing versus Network Marketing
A traditional company would typically have a Vice President of Marketing with several regional managers reporting directly to them. Those regional managers would recruit, hire, train and manage several area managers who, in turn, would each recruit, hire, train and manage several sales representatives. The sales representatives are then responsible for selling the company’s products or services.

Plotted on a piece of paper, the shape of the traditional organization would look like a triangle or pyramid. It’s quite obvious that the higher the level the higher the pay and that there is less room at the top for advancement. It is also evident that it is mathematically impossible for each and every sales representative or employee to rise to the top regardless of how good a job they do!

The Difference
First and foremost, Network Marketing is different. Each individual starts at exactly the same level – at the top of their own organization, has exactly the same opportunity as everyone else and is compensated in directly proportion to the activity or success that they have had an influence in generating. Secondly, one doesn’t need to be a sales person to reap the level of financial benefits normally associated with company owners, sales managers and marketers. Thirdly, in Network Marketing we work with, when and for whom we choose. And last but not least, different than in a traditional company, we only work for ourselves and those whose activity generates income for us! We may also choose to work with those which we are generating income for, because, in most cases, they don’t make money unless we do.

How does it work?
In Network Marketing, there are customers and also independent representatives who operate as a home-based business. The customers may also be independent reps. Independent reps can earn management positions if they so desire. Different than in traditional business, each independent representative is given the opportunity and responsibility of both recruiting customers and other independent representatives. Each independent representative is owner, president, and vice-president of marketing for their own home-based network Marketing business.

Network Marketing is a word of mouth business. By spreading the word, the network marketing marketer identifies others who desire to be customers and or independent representatives (home-based business owners). The independent rep helps those newly recruited independent reps build their own home based business by helping them identify other customers and independent reps who desire to own their own home based network Marketing business. In a mature organization, it is normal for there to be 50-100+ customers for each customer/independent representative that you personally refer! Through this duplication and multiplication process each home based business owner can recruit and sponsor a few customers and/or independent representatives and, as a result, generate a sizable organization of consumers and marketers.

Referring
Does this sound like a foreign and awkward activity to you? How many people have you referred to your favorite restaurant or to your favorite movie. How many more have gone because the people you told enjoyed the restaurant or movie and told someone else who went? How much did you get paid? We are all already referring customers everyday! It is just that most of us don’t get paid for it.

The question is not whether we refer customers, the question is whether we are getting paid for the activity!

In network Marketing, customer/independent reps receive an income for “marketing” the products for the company simply by referring other customers! Normally, we receive compensation through 5 – 10 generations of this duplication activity. In addition, there are usually additional performance and leaderships bonus compensation structures! Assuming an association with the right company: Network Marketing is the one of the very few processes I know of where you will earn in network marketing relation to your ability and effort with virtually unlimited potential! Although most people are looking only for a few hundred or few thousand of supplemental monthly income, I personally know, know of, or have met a substantial number of people who earn several tens of thousands of dollars per month from their home-based network Marketing business!

Choosing a Safe Business Opportunity
Once it has been determined that a home-based business is appropriate, and further determined that a home-based Network Marketing business is even more appropriate, the real difficulty is in determining which network Marketing opportunities to become involved in. Without experience in the industry, unless you’re extremely lucky, it is next to impossible to pick a winner on the first try! Unfortunately, it seems that experience in the industry is not always sufficient for the proper evaluation of a network Marketing opportunity. As is the case with traditional business, there are good opportunities and bad opportunities. As is the case with traditional business, unfortunately many people let their emotions cloud their rational judgement when it comes to evaluating a network Marketing company and/or business opportunity!

Evaluation Process
There are certain criteria which must be used rationally when one does an evaluation. Technically, these could be divided into two categories: absolutely necessary characteristics and desirable characteristics. For me, the desirable characteristics are also necessary, therefore, I will not distinguish between the two and will address them in no particular order.

Competent Company Management Team
Normally it is very difficult for us to know any more about the network Marketing company’s management team than what they tell us themselves. The evaluation of the management team only becomes an issue with a new company! If a company has been in business three to five years with a well documented and stable growth record, we really don’t need to waste our time. New network Marketing companies are starting up at a higher rate than ever before. It seems that every person who has ever been successful at network Marketing wants their own company. Surprise, running a network Marketing company is traditional business and new network Marketing companies fail at near the same rate as traditional businesses!

Age of the Company

The most common mistake made by the masses is getting emotionally tied up in the “ground floor opportunity” pitch which caters to our “greed” and the “fear of loss”! If a person is determined to get involved with a new network Marketing company, they should do so because they understand totally the market for the product(s) and the experience of the management team. Being on the ground floor is usually not best because a majority of new companies will fail. Even if the new company does succeed, there will be many adjustments and changes during the initial growth and there usually is a lack of proven marketing procedures, materials, and training support. The attrition rate is usually much higher during those first years because most individuals are not emotionally flexible enough to accept the changes and turmoil. A network Marketing company experiences four basic phases of growth and market penetration. The risk of the company failing during phase one (usually first 3-5 years) is 10-20 time greater than in phase two. Contrary to popular belief, it usually is far better to be involved with a network Marketing company after they’re entered phase two. The risk of their failure is negligible. Their success indicates that their products are acceptable and that their marketing procedures and materials work! Then, either fortunately or unfortunately, our success depends only on ourselves!

Remember, the Vehicle must never be the limiting element in our success!

No Major investment
With the right network Marketing opportunity, one should be able to start their own home-based business for hundreds of dollars, rather than the normal thousands, tens of thousands, or hundreds of thousands of dollars usually associated with other traditional businesses which have any serious financial potential!

No Inventory, No Receivables, and No Collections
I will not spend time on these. If you have ever experienced them as an owner, they need no explanation.

No Employees
Employees require a tremendous obligation from the business owner; mentally, emotionally and financially. With network Marketing, other independent distributors in our organization, while working their own home-based business, supply the same benefit to us as employees would to a traditional business. We have no payroll, no benefit overhead, no space requirement, and no management duties other than a moral obligation to help others in their business just as others will help us.

Residual Income – Persistency
Unless you have been a successful network marketer, insurance agent or marketer, author or actor, it is really difficult to understand the tremendous benefit of residual income.

Starting on a part- time basis, a sincere person or couple with desire and persistence can, within a three-to- five year period, build a meaningful residual income to last a lifetime and then some.

Building a residual income is a little like flying a big jet. It takes a significant amount of fuel to get it off the ground, but once it has reached altitude, it can throttle back and fly on a fraction of the fuel needed for takeoffs. The big difference is that a residual income can “fly” seemingly forever with a little refueling along the way. The income stream can be passed from generation to generation.

All the other benefits of network Marketing, such as control, opportunity, and flexibility are important, but Residual Income is the essence of network Marketing!

Experience has taught me that many more people propose to have Desire and Persistence than actually demonstrate it. The purpose for this communique is to identify Individuals who sincerely want more Success in their life but don’t seem to have the right Vehicle for their journey. If you are one of the few, then I invite you to investigate a home-based network Marketing business opportunity which would allow me to work with you and for you, in order that we both achieve our Success goals. If any of this makes any sense to you and you would like more information, use if for your success. If you would like a bio on my experience and qualifications, just ask. Thank you for your time, your most valuable asset!

Should You Lead With Your Home Based Business Opportunity Or Your Company Product?

Posted on September 12, 2017 in Uncategorized

With any home based business you have two options on how you can approach someone about your home based business opportunity. Some people like to approach with the business first and some people like to approach with their company’s product or service.
There is no right or wrong way to build your home based business. Both of these strategies have their pros and cons. I want to give you some thoughts on each strategy and give you an idea of which one you would like to use.

Leading With Your Home Based Business Opportunity.

With any home based business you want to always find a way to invite someone to take a look at your business. Which ever method you use you always want to invite someone and not just overwhelm with information if they didn’t ask to take a look.
Leading with your opportunity is a great way to get started making money right away with your business. This is a short term approach to getting you paid in your particular company. The great thing about this strategy is that you can use your product or service as a backup if someone does not want to join your home based business. Let’s say you approached someone about your opportunity and they weren’t interested. This is a great time to offer them to try your product or service. Tell them this is a chance for them to see how great the product or service is without making a commitment to joining your business. If it’s someone you know personally tell them that they would be doing you a great favor by trying it out and tell them why your started your home based business. People are more willing to do you a favor if it’s going to help you out in a big way. I have no problem asking someone to try out my service because I make it clear to them how much it would mean to me. Let’s say they try out your product or service and like it you can always approach them again about the business because they know the product or service does work. Even if they don’t join your business you now have a loyal customer who will tell others about the product or service and recommend it to someone they know!

Leading With Your Product Or Service.

Leading with your home based business product or service is another way to approach someone about your business. Tell someone you know about how great the product or service and how much of difference it has made in your life. People love testimonials and if the product or service has changed your life in some way tell them about it! Ask them a favor like I mentioned before and how much it would mean to you if they did so. Because down the road they may ask you for a favor. Leading with your product or service is a long term investment in your business so to speak. It takes longer because they are trying out the products or service and this takes time. The great thing about this approach is that if you have a superior product or service and they love it you can then tell them that they can make money just for referring others to use the product or service! They are a walking testimonial because they know it works, it’s worked for them and they will have no problem approaching others about how great it is! I’ve seen this approach work wonders and people who are passionate about a product or service will do wonders in your home based business.

You have to remember that your home based business is your business. Build your business however you want to! If you want people to try out your products first then go for it! This is why your started your home business in the first place was to be your own boss. Always remember that you always want to make it duplicateable for your team to use. Start having fun with your business and approach the business how you want to. I just wanted to give you a few ideas on how to approach someone about your home based business. Hope this answers your questions about using one of these strategies for your own particular company. Please keep yourself posted I have many great articles to come to help you with your home based business!
