Marketing Ideas & Useful Materials

You’re now out in the field and have chosen a perfect location to setup – great job! Now, let’s run through some ideas on how to attract attention and draw customers to your products. It’s important to remember your competitors will also be testing new methods of marketing to discover what works best for them. Staying on top of your services and ahead of the competition is your key to success. Below are a few examples of different items I’ve used in the field with proven success, as well as links to purchase the items online. If you’re not an Amazon Prime Member now is the time to join. The free 2-day shipping and $3.99 overnight shipping can prove to be wonderful tools if you’re in a pinch to refill your kiosk. If you’d like more information on what Amazon Prime is, Click Here.

     The most powerful method I’ve used is harnessing my existing customers’ circles. I always have items at my booth such as screen protectors, phone and tablet cases, candy, lanyards, laser pointers, and various other related products at my local Dollar Tree or .99 Cent Store when I’m running low on stock. Again I fall back to utilizing Amazon because items which you pay $1.00 for in store can be found for .10 cents! How do I use these items? I offer these items not for sale but free of charge if a customer successfully qualifies and activates a phone and then returns with a new qualifying customer. I’ve had people approach and attempt to pull customers already walking up and claim them as a “referral” – I’m mentioning this because it will happen. You can choose how to handle the scenario but what I do is either explain it has to be a person they know or just give them a mini stylus – which costs me a dime ultimately. Allowing customers to do this will result in you spending more money on items which can be eliminated by using these two options.

     My #1 and absolute favorite product to distribute is the Mini Stylus. These end up to be about .14 each after shipping when ordering 100 at a time which I do every 2 weeks. I recommend ordering these first AND often! The only drawback to these is the fact they come from a foreign country so the shipping takes 3-4 weeks. Two options here would be to order from a seller inside the US for your initial batch or order a good amount from China and wait patiently. I highly recommend keeping these stocked up because they’re fun to give away and always draw in referrals.

Another game I like to play if I have a crowd is to say “Pick a number between 1-100” and the closest guess gets 1, a spot on guess gets 2.You can do this with any item at your disposal but these are the cheapest.

Prime

     Maybe you’re an adventurous and fun type of person, or have the extra funds to splurge on hiring someone to dance for you – who knows! I ordered this my third or fourth month in and have no regrets. It’s a silly costume that’s sure to attract attention and it has a slot to insert your customized advertisement when the costume flips open. Click here to view the costume.  This is just part of my strategy: I also purchased a megaphone, some stencils, spray paint, and foam poster boards. The result? Being loud, catching attention, and a sign with large letters saying “FREE PHONES”.

The megaphone can be found here. I haven’t had any issues or complaints while using this item. I suggest being mindful of your surroundings and use it at times when you have a teammate at your booth and the day is slow – this will attract attention and bring the customers in. Trust me it works!

Note: Choose the same colors for all of your marketing materials so you instill the brand image into your customers’ heads. 

     These items should help get you started while in the field. If your first week or two is slow don’t worry – as long as you remain consistent with your hours you will have a steady flow of customers every day. Giving away these items and separating yourself from every other mobile rep is the key to your success.

Amazon Prime – Free 30 Day Trial

By now you’ve probably heard of the program Amazon Offers – Amazon Prime. On the surface it feels like Amazon is just trying to collect additional revenue, but there’s actually much much more to it than that. If you’re a frequent online shopper this is a program I highly recommend taking advantage of. Up next I’m going to briefly explain the benefits and practical uses of your Amazon Prime Membership so you can utilize it to its’ fullest potential.

A great aspect to this program is you can receive a Free 30 Day Amazon Prime Trial, a great way for you to test drive the service and see if it’s truly for you – especially before purchasing the annual membership.

Shipping
     One of the first things Amazon did when introducing Prime was allowing you to purchase items from their warehouses which would offerFree Two-Day Delivery. On top of this you had the option with most items that were Prime eligible to be shipped overnight for only $3.99 extra. This alone can save you hundreds of dollars a year (or a month if you’re like me) which pays for itself after the first or second order.

Amazon has been working hard since the birth of Prime to make the service bigger and better. Now as a Prime Member there are many items out there which allow same delivery if purchased early enough in the day. I have tested the Same-Day Prime service twice,  my first order was a single FireTV Stick which arrived at about 6:30PM (ordered at 11:30AM) and the second order was for two FireTVs which was purchased the night before and arrived just before 9 A.M – it had actually left the seller facility at 2:24 A.M. Not bad!

Pantry
     This is actually a pretty amazing service. For one flat rate of $5.99 you’re able to fill up a box with a huge selection of food items. Many of the items are close to wholesale. If you know you’re in need of a particular item you can toss it in your cart and have it shipped to your door. This is an excellent way to save money on many food, pet, and household items. I’ve personally tested the service by ordering a 12 Pack of 16 Ounce cans of Surge! and a box of Slim Jims. And yes, the soda tastes exactly like it used to! Thank you Amazon for making this happen!
If you remember the soda back in the day then this is a must have when you start your free trial!

Music
     An often overlooked advantage to Amazon Prime is its’ music service. At first there wasn’t much of a selection but they have made some massive overhauls to their selections. There are many pre-made playlists at your disposal or you can create your own. The service allows unlimited ad-free streaming with over a million songs – including offline playback.

Below you will find a list of all the other advantages of Amazon Prime. As you can tell many of these services, depending upon usage, will allow your membership to pay for itself!

Comcast Essentials – Your Ticket to Free Marketing Materials

Hey everyone,

I’ve got another sweet deal for you. How would like to be able to order 100% free brochure holders and other marketing materials to have more information at your booth? An effective strategy I’ve learned is have plenty of reading material on your table in case your line starts to back up. This allows you to be more engaging with your audience and of course, be more thoughtful about the wait times that can and will arise.

comcast

I now introduce you to: Comcast Internet Essentials!   Comcast Internet Essentials is a way for you to help Comcast promote their more affordable Internet plan. This plan is available to any household in which a student is part of the National School Lunch Program!

How can this program benefit you? If you visit the Partner Internet Essentials page and sign up you’ll have the option to order several brochure holders, tri-fold handouts, posters, and information sheets. This will allow you to order an extra brochure holder or two for yourself to place your own advertisement as well. Typically you’d be spending $1-5 for these things – but with the beautiful idea of market exchange – you’re helping Comcast gain new customers by being knowledgeable on this program which many do not know about – and they will remember you and send friends and family to get more information on the program!

Pro TipGet yourself over to Amazon and order these Personalized Return Address Labels – 500 for $9.95 shipped! Take these babies and slap them on all of your Comcast materials. Personally I keep the tri-fold brochure and the Astronomy Postcards at my table.
A) Because the Tri-Fold is very informative and
B) I love science.

So now you’re not only delivering this information to the world, you’re also personalizing it with your information with “Call Me About A Free Smartphone!” — Double edged sword!

Yes yes, you’re welcome 🙂

Prime

Disclaimer: Do NOT, I repeat: DO NOT go overboard with your ordering. I only make one order a month but with a consistent turnover and business name they have no problem supplying me with materials since I can kick out a thousand a week without a sweat. However if a ton of orders start popping up everywhere then Comcast is probably going to pull the string and tighten the requirements on the orders.

If you need me to order materials for you – leave a comment or hit that e-mail. I can add your order to my next batch.
^This applies to the entire team working under my Supervisor – I’m here to help.

First Order Advice:
This is what I recommend starting out with so you can put your name on their map.
Wait 30 days, then re-up.

4 Brochure Holders
100 Introducing Internet Essentials Letter to Parents
100 Internet Essentials BTS Brochures
100 Postcards of Your Choice

And YES – All of the ordered materials are front and back and bilingual!

Now for some information on the program

Features of Internet Essentials Include:

  • $9.95 per month + applicable taxes with no term contract or credit checks
  • No activation or equipment fees
  • In-home WiFi included (Please, contact me if you sign up. Your Internet automatically allows Public Access – I can fix that!)
  • Access to an affordable desktop or laptop computer for just $149.99!
  • Free in-person and online web classes (These are actually pretty amazing. If you’re interested in more online courses – I have a list)

Call 855-846-8376 or apply online at InternetEssentials.com. We want all our students to have the opportunity to do their homework at home, and we are excited to tell you about programs like Internet Essentials from Comcast that may be helpful to your family.

Brinks Prepaid – Earn $20 Bonus After a $40 Refill

     A program that I’ve previous used very heavily was NetSpend. Through this program I was averaging about 17-21 referrals a month just by providing information such as I’m about to give you. You will be signing up for a Prepaid MasterCard which will immediately set you up with a Routing/Checking account.

     By clicking the link you’ll utilize my referral code which will unlock the ability to earn a free $20 Credit if you haven’t taken advantage of the offer previously.

brinks

You have 3 options when it comes to loading your initial deposit:

Free Bank Transfer
     You can add your new Account/Routing Number to most existing branches and a small deposit will arrive in about 2-3 business days. Once this is confirmed you’ll be able to transfer money to your account before your card arrives!

Instant Bank Transfer
     This method requires you to have a Visa or MasterCard Logo on your chosen card. You may transfer up to $250 per day.
This option carries a $1.95  transfer fee – however it is much faster than waiting for a Bank Transfer. I recommend this option for people hungry for the free $20 Bonus.

$5 Amazon Credit /w Next $10+ Purchase

Hello everyone!

I’m back with yet another amazing opportunity! Are you an Amazon Customer? Then listen up!

I have decided to write this article because I actually did a search myself to look into others trying to promote this, but the steps weren’t too clear and seemed jumbled – so here’s a better tutorial so you can make sure the steps are done properly! 

A brief explanation on how this works:

  1. You receive an e-mail or referral code in your inbox prompting you to take advantage of a $5 Amazon Credit
  2. Your referral clicks on this link and installs the Amazon app (United States Only receives the $5 Credit)
  3. After installing the app they log into their account, browse normally, and make a purchase of at least $10. (Important!)
  4. In about 1-2 weeks you will receive an e-mail alerting you that your discount is available.
  5. Enjoy your credit!
     To make sure I cover all the basis I’m going to make the process as easy as possible so there’s less confusion and the method is completed properly. Please read on to make sure every base is covered – once you see your first credit you’ll be hooked like I am!
Prime
How To Receive Your Discount
     Below I will describe the process I used which I highly recommend following to the letter because as you can see this did work using my method.
  1. If you already have the Amazon app installed on your device – UNINSTALL IT NOW.
  2. Click here for your referral link when browsing from your mobile device, or request an e-mail link Support@LifelineCali.com
  3.  If asked for a referral code, use DAWN5849N
  4. Browse the Amazon Store via your mobile device (phone, tablet) and make a purchase of at least $10.
    (If you buy an Amazon Firestick using my link – e-mail me and I’ll remotely jailbreak your device FREE of charge!)
    This will require the installation of a remote application called TeamViewer, 100% Safe and Secure!
    You must also provide proof of your purchase – a screenshot of the receipt showing the purchase made with date.
    E-mail Support@LifelineCali.com and set an appointment to have your stick jailbroken.
  5. Your discount will arrive in e-mail in about 1-2 weeks. If it’s not received, contact Amazon Support.
And that’s all there is to it when it comes to receiving $5 off after your next $10 purchase from Amazon!
One thing I would like to note is I used an Amazon Gift Card to make my $20 purchase and yes I still received the promotion! Meaning you can use an existing balance to claim the credit 🙂
