Are you an It Works Distributor who is scared to death of blitzing? I was too, but it turns out it’s not so bad!
Over the past few years social media has exploded and is taking up a lot of our time! We sometimes forget to take our face out of our phones and be present when we are out running errands or treating ourselves to a mani and pedi. This is important because we could be letting our next rock star DT or LC pass us by.
Remember It Works Steps to Success- Wrap, Blitz, and Repeat! This has been and will continue to be the secret behind our growing company. With that being said I think that some of us don’t blitz because the thought of engaging belly to belly with someone we are meeting for the first time can be scary! Just remember that the world is your friend, so take it on with excitement and emotion and take action!!!
When blitzing it is important to come off as approachable because that will allow people to believe in your excitement and emotion when telling them about the products or opportunity. Blitzing takes time and you want to leave an impression so that they don’t just throw your card away or stick it in their purse and never look at it again.
If you are hitting it off with someone and the moment seems right you could hand them your phone and ask them to be friends on Facebook or get some kind of contact information so you can continue to build the relationship and invite them to a wrap party. In a way this is closing the deal on blitzing because your ultimate goal is to share the products, having them become a LC or share the business opportunity having them become a DT.
It is not about where you are its about where you are going! You may not be comfortable with blitzing now but you will be, practice and show your excitement and love for this company and you will be a blitzing queen or king in no time.
It’s more than just giving someone a card. We are building relationships here. If you randomly give someone a card it’s ok, but way better if they remember something positive about you.
If you talk to someone for a long time tell them, you can’t stop thinking about how good they would be at what you do and you would love to give them a coupon.
Ok let’s get in to some blitzing tips…
Stylist… thank you so much you are so good at what you do. I want to give you a coupon. Hand it to her! Tell her you think she would be so good at what you do and you would love to be able to introduce her to your favorite product.
Clerk at a store … Thank you so much. I had a great customer service experience, would you mind if I gave you a coupon? This is for my home business and I would love to see if we have any products that you would like to try.
Buy blitz cards and a shirt or 2 or 3 and wear these anytime you go out. At the very least a button that says Have You Tried That Crazy Wrap Thing. You are a walking billboard for your business. Always have blitz cards on you.
You can buy a clear pencil case at the dollar store and keep blitz cards, a pen, a dry wrap, greens/wow samples and index cards so you can take notes if needed. Keep a couple single wraps in there too.
When you are wearing your shirt and someone says, what works? Hand them the blitz card and say. I am a distributor for this product and this is what it does. Turn the card around and stop talking. Let them ask the questions from there. I have learned that talking less is best. Let them ask questions and then don’t answer questions that they are not asking. Instead ask them questions.
– Have you ever had a home based business?
– Have you ever done direct sales?
– Do you know anyone that could use this?
– Have you heard of it?
– Have you seen this on Facebook or Instagram?
Keep in mind that you are wanting to leave a lasting impression with these people otherwise all you are doing is marketing and they might throw away your card and go online to find more information. Each blitz is an introduction in to you first and then your business so make it a good one.
Disclaimer.. it may take you a while to master this. Each time you do it you will get better at it. You will fail and walk away form people thinking… why did I just say that. Keep learning, keep practicing, keep blitzing, wrapping and repeating.
Wear a blitz lanyard. Get a liz card laminated and a cute lanyard and wear this while you are out. Wether you are wearing the shirt or the lanyard people will ask you what it is so you can start the conversation.
Go to the It Works Global page and find a few before and after images or use your own if you already have that. Find the Ruby Bonus Image and a blitz card image. You can also look for these in your esuite under marketing materials or ask your upline to text them to you.
Now go through your contacts and text every single person without pre-judging. Don’t assume that they are not interested. You have to ask.
You can say, hey friend I hope you don’t mind me texting you, but I have a product that I think you will just love and I’m so excited to share it with you. Do you have a minute?
Some won’t answer, some will say they are not interested. To those then ask. Oh ok. Do you happen to know anyone who would be interested in trying the wrap or maybe in starting a new home based business? and share the ruby image with them. Some will say no, but some may refer you to someone.
To the rest that responded start engaging with them. Introduce them to a product that you think they will love. Tell them why they will love it and then ask them if they would be one of your customers and try it for 90 days and share their testimonial with you. Ask them when can I wrap you? When can I wow you? When is a good time to get an order in? Did you want to host a party for me? Would you like to attend an online event we are hosting? I am going for this ruby bonus, by any chance would you be interested in trying it? Engage engage engage. Ask questions. Never end with a ok let me know. Ask for favors, ask for help, these are your friends and there are many that would love to help you one way or another, but they won’t do it if you don’t ask.
Local blitzing –
Create a 100s list to blitz businesses.
List businesses in your local area
List people in those businesses to blitz.
Walk in introduce yourself. Say Hi I am Barbara and I am introducing a product to our area. May I leave some coupons here with you for your employees? To those that look at the card, ask. Have you heard of it? begin engaging. Leave just 2-3 coupons and let them know you will honor it for anyone in the store even if they don’t have the coupon. – Keep notes on your 100s list so you know if you should go back and follow up. Some people need to see and hear about a product 4-5 times before they really recognize it or are ready to purchase.
Have your greens with you in a clear bottle all of the time.
Always offer your friends fat fighters after a meal.
Have the fat fighter demo on your phone.
Host monthly contests and have people text you to enter the contest. For everyone that wins schedule a wrap appointment to personally wrap them and for the ones that don’t win let them know that although they didn’t win they can try the wrap for $25. Ask if they would want to do that? For people that say they don’t have the money to buy it, ask if they would like to host a party for them and they will get a free wrap. You can even host online parties and give them a free wrap if at least 3 of their friends becomes a loyal customer.
