Other Vendors Are Not Your Competition
The thing I see at MOST Chat Room Party sites at other social networks and places is the ME, ME, ME Mentality.
Character traits are being submitted if you see them or not. Seeing a persons face does not make a change, it only ads to the picture. When you go to a lot of presentations like I do you become experinced in what a presentation should be all about.
Let me ask you a question....
Would you buy from someone you have never heard of ?
Beaded Jewels ? Who is that ? Exactly......are...you are getting my point then?
See there are way you can help move things along. In order for you to shine your light on your products, you need to let your light shine on you first.
When you have like 15 or twenty minutes to present, make the first 8 min just about you. Be personal in a save way, Your, first name, your age, are married, do you have children, the state you live in.......keep in mind when you new in the chat room and you have like me your own business let people in to your life, be patient be persistent in showing up.
The statistics say that because our life's are so busy, crammed full with stuff, lots of people as well as vendors have a hard time to keep paying attention. so you want to have a presentation, where they do not want to walk away from the screen. Did you know you can teach other vendors to keep paying attention to your presentation?
Just like you can teach a two year old over the course of one year to sit and listen to a bible story for 8 min. when at the beginning he was able to pay attention for two. It does not happen from today to tomorrow.
Make your presentation interesting, by never having exactly the same presentations. HINT Make yourself a presentation folder with at least 4 or 5 different presentations, unless you have a genious in the chatroom, with extreme memory recall they wont know that you are switching them around, all they hear or read is something new, something fresh. NEVER just copy and paste everything, but throw something in toally spontaneous, which makes you interact with the other vendors or guest that are in the chat room.
The BEST Online events are where the vendors are active and engaged in helping each other out. Asking questions even if they already know the answer it help the vendors feel supported.
Thefore the other Vendors are NOT your competitors but your PEERS and ALLIES, They are just like you, and if given a chance can become your BEST Resources for information. If you look at them as a competitor ONLY you miss out on Door Opening Opportunities to grow more leads and referrals. By distancing these People you cut yourself off to other information and resources they may know other places that can help you.
You might wonder where I learned all of this....well about 1 /2 years ago......
I stumbled onto this network http://homebasedpreneurs.ning.com by chance, but so glad that I found it. It truly is a diamond among all that rubble that is out there, There are so many individuals just trying to get you to sign up to money making schemes and other demoralizing tactics to make the big bux overnight.....no such thing unless you already have the money to start with.
To establish your business it takes in between 1-5 years. In these years we must do everything to get our products, name and logo out there, get people to trust us and sell our products and somehow make a living.
Then I found this network
Homebasedpreneurs is a network with heartwarming business people working at home like I am, or rep for some company. The founder of this network introduced me to Expo-Connector which is a online shopping portal who will give you ample opportunities not only to present your business on a regular basis , but push you along and show you so many avenues how you can expand your business contacts, make friends, who become your customers.
