9 Tips on Making Sales

“How Do I Make Sales?”

That is a question I get Asked ALLLLLL the time.

“I see so many people posting their results, but I haven’t made a single sale yet. What am I doing wrong?”

Another Good Question.

The key to selling any product, program, or software is consistency and having a methodical approach to marketing.

Here are 10 tips to make more sales:

  1. Focus on building your list. An email list is your #1 asset. It’s traffic on demand. Once someone is on your list, you can send emails to them over and over and over.
  2. Because you can ail them any time you like, you do not have to try and sell them something in every email. You can take time to build rapport.
  3. Building an email list takes money or time. If you can’t afford paid advertising, you’ll need to put in the time. Network on Faceook, advertise on safelists. Whatever you do, you have to be consistent. And do not advertise products or programs. Use this advertising to invite people onto you list. When you advertise a product or a program you are asking your prospect to say Yes or No. 98% say no. End of discussion. But an invitation to your list is a Maybe/Learn More request. 36% say Okay, Yeah.
  4. As people Join your List, send them at least one email per day – consistently! Automate this with an auto-responder like TrafficWave
  5. Send 50 to 100 friend requests in social media every day. And then follow up and build relationships in Messenger/chat/or inbox features of the social media platform.
  6. Never push your offer from the start. Ask them what they do online. 90% of the time they’ll ask you what you do. So, tell them what you promote but do not promote it. Ask if they’re interested. Then, and only then, give them the link.
  7. When people join you in Social Media share helpful ideas (not sales) inviting them to Learn More y joining your list. You can Also use TrafficWave/Zapier integration to add your social media friends to your email list.
  8. Create a video review tools you use or services you use. Post it on YouTube. In your YouTube post include an invitation to join your list and Learn More. Then post the video in your social media. Also send the video to your email list, but when you send it to your email list include links to join the program or buy the product. A lot of people are having success with this method. Examples:
  9. Contact your sponsor and ask them what they’re doing to make sales.

Are you Advertising OR are you Trying to Make Sales?

George McBride

Advertising Is Not Sales.

Elizabeth asked, “In the past I have tried selling products on TripleClicks by posting affiliate links on Facebook and Twitter but I ended up in Facebook jail. Why? What can I do to Sell Products?”

Social Media is a social platform, it can be used for advertising, not sales. What do I mean? Facebook and many other social media sites have a Sales, or they often call it Market, branch. It is where people go to shop. It requires you paying the platform.

The social stream can be used for advertising. BUT Remember that advertising does not produce sales. What does it produce? I’ll tell you, Rapport. Some call it branding.

You build a good feeling between your brand and your prospect. In our case, we are the brand. We build “know, like and trust” As they get to know us, like us and trust us they begin to see I might be able to provide a solution to their needs, wants and desires. They want to get that solution from me, not Amazon, not someone posting links on Facebook but from me because they know, like and trust me.

The best way to provide that rapport is give the prospect the opportunity to “Learn More” ….  This leads them to join my email list.  I have built my List to over 5000 people, and you can Learn How I did it.

My Thai Food FB Group is a classic example. I started and admin the group. I protect the group from raw blatant Sales posts. I have one member who posts this every day:
“You have tried the rest, now try the best”. then the info on their restaurant and a picture of their business.

Every day I block this post. People are in my group to learn about Thai food, not go to this guy’s restaurant. Of the 100,000 people only about 50 could even go. The rest live no where near the Restaurant. Why make everyone else see this ad? My group appreciates that. They Like that, and I am earning their trust.

How did I build a Group this size? It started with a Video I saw.

When I make a food suggestion many respond because they know, like and trust me. There is a spice mix, NamTok, that I sell on TripleClicks. A member of my group mentioned that this spice tastes good on french fries. We do not eat french fries, so we tried it on popcorn. I responded to the guys post and thanked him for the idea and shared a picture of the popcorn. Result 6 sales immediately and several more since.

I posted a rice dish with tons of herbs in it . The rice was blue and I found out it was made blue using Butterfly Pea Flowers (a tea concoction). I mention that in the post. 2 people asked about where they can get the Tea

I found a farm here that produces it and have listed it on TripleClicks in my Store. I passed it on to the Thai Food Group. And I made several sales. I am not selling on Facebook, I am a trusted source for meeting needs and solving problems. 

This is how I use Social Media.

Who Likes Pushy Sales People?

No Friends Left - Too Pushy?

I have said many times, “Sales is Fast Money and Team Building is Big Money”

I am a member of SFI as an Affiliate Marketer. Here are 5 ways to build your sales without being pushy. They are specifically meant for SFI Affiliate Marketing but the principles can apply to any marketing. If you want to use SFI as your affiliate marketing platform,

I want to show you 5 good, fast and easy ways to make sales and valuable Sales VP (Profit Pool Shares).

1. Transfer Buying – There are products you use every day that are sold in TripleClicks. Stop buying that product at your local market and start buying it on TripleClicks. Transfer your Buying.

For example, A exotic meal for Dinner. , there are 1000s of products from Coffee to Toothpaste in TripleClicks.

Here’s another example of Transfer Buying. I won an Auction and received an Air Compressor for my car. This means I paid way below retail. I was using it yesterday to increase the air pressure in my tires and my neighbor saw me. He asked me, “Where’d you get that?”

I told him TripleClicks and encouraged him to join, he said “No I don’t think so.” But can you buy it for me. I suggested bidding for it in Astro Auctions instead, we did, but did not win. He then said, “Just buy it. But can you sign me for these Auctions, they’re fun?”

2. Buy Local – Suppose you do not want to “Transfer” your buying. Suppose you like your local shop, or you are a close friend or relative of the shop owner. Then invite that shop owner to join the Localvantia Program in SFI. Continue to buy from them, but earn valuable Rewardicals as well as building your SFI earnings.

The Localvantia Program is extremely valuable to the shop owner as well. He gets a valuable Loyalty program and he can earn on members of that Loyalty Program even when they are shopping somewhere else. That shop owner will like that.

3. Use Collections – Log on to TripleClicks first. Then open this Collection of all my Thai Foods sold on TripleClicks. In the Top right hand corner you will see a button, “Copy Collection” click it and My Food Collection will be copied into your TripleClicks back office completely customized with your SFI ID such that any purchase made from your collect will be commissions for you.

You will have a new link, similar but not the same as my GotClicks2 link. Promote it and any sale from, what is now your collection will result in commissions for you. I fulfill the order but you get the commissions and the Sales Quota points. Read more about Collections Here

4. Niche Market – You can build your own niche market. Are you interested in Food, recipes, exotic and spicy flavors. I have a program where I promote my Thai foods using a weekly recipe. Get those emails here: Change the links to your SFI ID, or to your new collection link, and promote these recipes to friends and family and on your social media. Currently my Thai Food Facebook Group is 210,000 people.  

Not into food? Whatever you like to do or talk about, whatever your niche is, build a collection of products from TripleClicks and then just talk about your niche, sharing your product collection link. For example, I have a Thai Bags Collection, a Drone Collection, a Beauty Matters Collection and more.

5. Tweet This – I have an email campaign that will send an email to your inbox every day or 2. In that email will be blue “Tweet This” buttons. When you click that button your twitter account will be opened (you may need to log on) and you will be given the option to make a Tweet directly to your account. In that tweet any SFI product links will be customized to your SFI ID. Anyone who sees the tweet and clicks the product link will be your customer. It will be your sale. All you need to do is open the emails each day and click the Tweet This Buttons. 

Realize that not all tweets will be promoting products. Some are designed to simply bring value to your audience and increase your creditability with your audience. Want Tweet This Click Here?
