Experts say that you need to provide value in order for people to be drawn to you online. Seriously, I never got that. What value? What did it look like? How could I get it and how do I give it? I never knew what they were talking about. They winked when they said it, like some shady psychic who tells you about the lottery win or the tall, dark handsome stranger coming into your life.
I am far from dim but I couldn’t work it out. Then someone said to me that people wanted to see value on my wall. Eh? Do I post special offers from the supermarket, you know, saving people money?
Ha ha, I jest…… or do I?
Come on Jan do spill!
Oh alright then, I am going to share this ‘secret‘ with you because I understand it now. Yay! Don’t I feel clever and not dancing around the room at all.
In our industry, the failure rate is dismal. People just don’t know how to ‘do it‘ Standing like deer in the headlights they watch the gurus, believing that they are elevated beings with the unattainable, magical gift to create cult like followers. But here it is, they are just like you… they just know something that you don’t know yet, that’s all.
If I tell you this secret, will you must promise me, with hand on heart, that you will take this information and apply it?
So, here’s the thing. People want to know HOW to succeed in direct selling. They crave to know what to do, when and how to do it. So, if you share a formula with them then you are providing that magical, mystical thing called value, all without the use of fairy dust.
Help others in any way in this industry and you ARE providing value.
By the way, don’t use the excuse that you don’t have value to share. Spend the time learning how. That is how we all did it. Follow the elite marketers and model their moves. Providing value will not only help others but it will also transcend your own business.
