#1: Notify Potential Clients When They Drive Past
Proximity marketing finds clients instead of asking them to find you. Place a GO from Asirvia in the house or nearby of the road and trigger notifications directly to potential client’s mobile phones.
They can open the notification and find out more or schedule a tour directly from the information page.
It’s a spontaneous interaction and smartphone users don’t even need an app to receive notifications – this capability is built right into most mobile phones.
#2: Give Your Clients Property Information Where They Want It: On Their Phones
No more remembering to print out property information sheets and asking clients to shuffle through the papers throughout home tours. Deliver home details in vivid color directly to their devices while they’re in the home.
Upon arriving at a property, a notification will be sent to the client’s lock screen. When they open the screen and click on the notification link, they arrive at a custom page for the house they are viewing. The information is pulled directly from the MLS including photos, property data, and virtual tour.
#3: Enhance Your Open House Event
Visitors receive notifications as they arrive creating a more personalized open house experience. Not only does this keep visitors informed, it shows that agents are technologically savvy and promotes brand awareness for the Realtor® and their agency.
This is a relatively new way for real estate professionals to market their inventory.
Using proximity marketing solutions like those offered by a US-based company called Asirvia, a Realtor® can market directly to potential client’s mobile phones when they come near a home that is listed for sale.
Here’s how proximity marketing, developed by a US-based company called Asirvia (who specializes in proximity marketing solutions) works…
You have a tiny wireless piece of hardware that can fit in the palm of your hand called a GO. It can be placed anywhere in the home.
Using a web-based platform called GO SERVICES, you decide the promotional message and link you want to program with your GO. The GO broadcasts your message and link. It can be viewed as a notification by nearby smartphones & devices with Bluetooth and Location enabled.
There is even an upgraded version of GO SERVICES called GO PLUS that you can use to share an ad that includes an image, some details about the real estate offer, your phone number, and website or video link. This ad can be saved to people’s mobile phones and shared to other mobile phones or to Facebook.
Finding buyers can get expensive, however, real estate professionals can use this very cool technology for less than a few dollars a day!

Effective Ways to Market Your Restaurant
Have a small restaurant and very little capital available for marketing? Are you wondering how to get the word out about your business?
Just because your current budget is small doesn’t mean that your marketing can’t have an impact. Did you know there are a few effective ways to market a restaurant that requires very little investment?
All you need is some creativity and a little know-how. You can spread the word about your small restaurant and make a big impact on your success.
Here’s a look at four (4) simple and strong ways to market your small restaurant without blowing your budget.
1. Google My Business
Setup your Google My Business account for your restaurant so people can find you when searching online. This mapping service allows Google users to easily find your listed restaurant within their local area. It’s quick and easy to do and very budget friendly.
2. Sponsor A Charity Event
Elevate your restaurant’s customer relationship with philanthropy
Sponsoring charity events offers an ideal situation for restaurants to increase customer share and community goodwill. The event organizer gets the things they need for their cause and the restaurant gains exposure for helping with all the guests who show up for the charitable event. This is one of the best ways for restaurants to give back to the community and raise their profile with local residents. According to the National Restaurant Association, it is possible to “elevate your restaurant’s customer relationship with philanthropy.”
3. Partner with Other Local Businesses
Partnerships are a great way for you to tap into the customers of other businesses to elevate your exposure in your community. The goal is to find complementary businesses that need food for events or are also looking for creative ways to thank their customers. You can offer to provide the food in exchange for exposure to their customers.
4. Use Proximity Marketing
This is a relatively new way for storefronts to market their business. Using proximity marketing solutions like those offered by a US-based company called Asirvia – https://gounit.info/kim/, a restaurant can market directly to customers mobile phones when potential customers come within 400 meters of their restaurant.
Customers are Frequently Looking at their Phones
Here’s how it works… You have a tiny wireless piece of hardware that can fit in the palm of your hand called a GO that you can stick on your front window. Using a web-based platform called GO SERVICES, you decide the promotional message and link you want to program with your GO. The GO broadcasts your message and link and can be viewed as a notification by nearby smartphones & devices with Bluetooth and Location enabled.
There is even an upgraded version of GO SERVICES called GO PLUS that you can use to share an ad that includes an image, some details about your restaurant or daily special, your phone number and website or video link. This ad can be saved to people’s mobile phones and shared to other mobile phones or to Facebook. How cool is that!
You would think this technology would be expensive, but you can have it for less than a few dollars a day!
So, just because you have a small marketing budget doesn’t mean that you must settle for small marketing thinking. With these simple and cost-effective advertising ideas, you won’t believe how much business you will be able to generate in a very short period of time on a very limited marketing budget!

Email marketing is the foundation of every good internet marketing business.
Your subject line can make or break your email marketing efforts.
One of the biggest challenges of email marketing is coming up with a subject line that can get the reader to open the email.
If you fail to create an email subject line that catches the reader’s attention, most likely your email will be deleted quickly.
In this blog post I am going to reveal winning tactics to writing effective subject lines.
This information can dramatically increase you email open rate which will result in increased sales.
These same tips can also help you to craft headlines for your blog post, video titles and social media post.
Anytime you can capture someone’s attention to get them to read or listen to your content, that will help to build your brand and your business.
1. When you are creating your subject line keep in mind the whole purpose is to get them to open the email. Don’t try to sell your product or recruit a new affiliate in the subject line.
2. Review the stats from you past emails to see which subject lines had the best open rate. The results may surprise you.
3. Share social proof, a statistic, or a testimonial.
Example: 600,000 shares on Facebook.
4. Review your email inbox and observe the type of subject lines that make you want to open them. Make a swipe file of the good ones. Use that as a guide only. Don’t copy them word for word.
5. Make it more personal instead of sounding like a marketing ad. If you are inviting someone to a hangout or webinar, try: Can you attend Wednesday at 8:00?
6. Don’t offer too much information in the subject line. The reader may either accept or reject that limited content and usually sees no need to open the email.
7. Keep the subject lines short. Remember many people are checking their emails on their phones.
You can use a simple free tool to help you generate ideas. Such as:
http://www.title-generator.com which will create 700 variations with one click.
By implementing these simple tips you can turn your subject lines into a tool that will improve your marketing results and create more profits in your business.
Do you have teammates that have not been making sales or duplicating?
Are you wondering how to get them motivated? I am going to share some tips with you that will help.
What gave me the idea for this post is actually a conversation I had a few days ago with a prospect in Facebook.
This conversation was to follow up with her after she had watched my sales video. I sent her a message and asked her what she liked best about it. She gave me a very different response. She said that it was very well explained.
Then I asked her a closing question. Her response was that she needs to get motivated.
Watch the video below to hear my response. I also give detailed tips on how you can motive your exiting teams to have a break thru and make sales.
Kevin and I have implemented these things before and sponsored 50 people in a very short time.
To Your Massive Success,
PS. Get my FB Recruting Formula course while it’s free.
These are all methods that I have used which resulted in more Facebook friends and followers.
Most of these tips are going to get people to send friend request to you. Facebook does not like it if you send friend request to people that don’t know you. Sending too many of those will land you in “Facebook jail” and you will be blocked from sending more request.
With that said I sometimes send a couple each day, no more than three.
When that window drops down it will show you any friend request that you have pending. It will also have a list of people that it suggest you might know.
Pick out 2 or 3 that have a lot of mutual friends with you.
Look at their profile to make sure it is someone that you would like to work with, then send them a friend request and this message:
“Facebook suggested you as someone I might know. I can see why because we have many mutual friends. I just sent you a friend request. Have a Blessed day. :)”
If you are active on other social media sites, you can get some of them to friend you on Facebook.
In the past I was very active on Twitter. I was getting a lot of new followers. When a new person followed me I sent them a direct message as follows:
Hi [Firstname], Thanks for the follow. Nice to you. Let’s connect on Facebook too. 🙂 www.Facebookcom/kim.a.sousa
(I have also used this method to get people over to my Fan Pages instead of just my personal profile.)
Go to a couple groups and look at the profile of some people actively posting in the group. If they are someone you would like to work with, see if they have a follow button. Follow them instead of sending a friend request.
They will get a notification from Facebook that you followed them. This could result in them sending you a friend request. They may even start a conversation with you.
When you make a post that gets a lot of shares you just got “free advertising”.
For example: If you have a cat and you made a video of them doing something very funny, you can post that and people could share it.
When people share your post all of their friends could see it. Their friends could share it too. Then all of their friends could see it.
When a post gets lots of share we say it has “gone viral”. With all of these people that did not know you seeing your post some of them will go to your profile and friend request or follow you.
My husband, Kevin had used this method to get many thousand of followers which also maxed out his number of friends.
If you are active in some groups, you can attract some people to send you a friend request. I am not talking about the make money online groups. Most of those people just put in their advertisement and leave.
I am talking about groups on specific topics. These people are highly engaged because they are passionate or at least interested in the topic of the group. I am a member of groups about autism, recipes, low carb recipes and more.
I did not join these groups for business or to get more friends. I really am interested in those topics just like everyone else there. But as a by product of being active in those groups some people were attracted to my profile and have sent me friend request.
So for example if you are passionate about extreme coupons and are in a group on that topic, you can make a post on your PROFILE about your latest successful shopping trips with pictures of your haul and info about your savings.
Then the the link to that post from you wall and share it in a couple of the coupon groups that would be interested in that post.
Some people that also share that interest could go to your profile and decide to send you a friend request.
“Hi [Firstname], Thanks for the friend request. I just accepted. Have a Blessed day. :)”
“Hey [Firstname] Thanks for the friend request. Much appreciated! I’d love to know more about you. What is it that you do?”
So how do you take all these new friends and followers and get some of them to join you in business?
This blog post explains all the details to get you started.

In my previous post I showed you how to set up your profile for success and what to post so that you attract people to you in Facebook.
Today I am going to show you how to actively prospect and get people looking at your business today.
When you reach out to them the first thing they will do is look at your profile and wall. So make sure you have read and implemented my tips from this post: Attract Endless Leads With Facebook before you start prospecting.
The first prospecting scripts and tips I am going to give you are for people on your friends list that already know you. You either know them offline or have chatted with them before online.
If your product has broad appeal, you can approach them right away. We are always sharing information with our friends and family when we see a good movie or get a bargain at the store. This is no different.
You can send them a text, call them or send a private Facebook message. A message on Facebook could even be a voice message to make it more personal.
I hope you are having an awesome day. 🙂
I found a way to _________________. Now I’m sharing this with others.
Do you have a few minutes to watch a short video?
Sample script for someone that has like your Facebook post:
Thanks for liking my post. 🙂
I found a way to _____________. I am now sharing this with others.
Would you like to take a look at it?
You Can Sponsor 2-3 People Each Week. But don’t ever just post a link to someone unless that have asked for it or agreed to it.
When you get a “yes”, find out when they are going to watch the video so you can follow up.
The Follow up:
Ask them: “What did you like best?”
Or: “On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being I’m ready to rock this and 1 being I really don’t see the vision, where do you see yourself?”
If they are ready to get started, then tell them what to do next to get started. “You’re next step is..”
If they really don’t see the vision and are not interested, then say “that’s cool, keep it in mind.”
If they are somewhere in between 2 and 9, then say,
“You must have questions. Let’s talk on the phone.” Then give them your number, ask for theirs and set a time to talk.
It would also be helpful to have an upline leader on the phone when you call them. You can say, “I’m new at this, but I have Kevin on the line and he can answer all your questions.”
You should get to know them a little better first before you approach them about your business. Leave comments on their post and engage with them.
You can use this script to start a conversation:
“Your post just came up in my news feed. We have not chatted in awhile. How are you doing?”
When you get to know them better, you may discover that they have a problem and your product is the solution. That would be a good time to bring up the subject of your business or one of your income streams.
I have a Facebook group for internet marketers. I start conversations and make friends with many of them.
Sometimes they are brand new to their business and really don’t know how to market online.
If you run into that situation, you could recommend a free training or blog post to help them.
Kevin and I learned a lot of what we know about marketing online from The Home Business Academy. That is a system that would be very helpful to a new person.
It is important to continually build your friends, followers and post engagement in Facebook to generate an abundance of leads for your business.

Network marketing businesses are built with relationships. Because of that I have found it easier to grow a team with free marketing instead of paid.
While offline marketing to your warm market works, there is a limit to how many people you can contact personally. I am also not a fan of driving to home parties.
A much more effective way is to use social media such as Facebook. There is an endless amount of prospects there. It works and is very effective if done the right way. When Facebook marketing is done wrong, it repels people instead.
Kevin and I have used many different methods of marketing and free marketing with Facebook has produced the most results for us.
There are two different ways to do this. One is active prospecting and the other is to use attraction marketing. Both are very effective. A combination of both of these methods can make you highly successful in any business.
Following the steps below is the first part of attraction marketing on Facebook. Eventually you will have people contacting you asking to join your business and work with you.
The first thing you need to do is set up your profile correctly. The header image should be a lifestyle photo.
Do not put pictures of your products or the name of your company in your header.
Your profile picture should be a head and shoulders picture of you, not your kids, dog or anything else.
Go into your settings and set it so that no one except you can post on your wall. If someone tags you in a post, it should not appear on your wall unless you manually approve it.
Set everything to public. You cannot hide and keep everything private if you want to build a business with social media. When people are deciding if they want to connect with you, they will look at your profile, your wall, photos and number of friends.
First I want to cover what not to post on your wall. Do not post anything negative. That will not attract people to you. If you are having a challenge paying the rent, DO NOT post about it in Facebook.
I am not saying to lie or pretend to have success that you are not having yet. Wait until you have had success and then share about your struggles and how you were able to overcome them. That will inspire people with your story. If you share your struggles before you have overcome them, you will repel people from joining you in business.
Think about it. If you see someone posting that they are broke and can’t pay their bills, is that the person that you would be attracted to for business? Would you sign up with them and look to them as a mentor?
But many people have overcome their struggles and now have had tremendous success. For example, Mike Kim from South Korea. He used to be homeless and now is highly successful. Ray Higdon was broke and filed for bankruptcy, but now is highly successful and has made millions.
Don’t use the name of your company in any of your post. You want to create curiosity and not look like an advertisement. Do this instead:
So what else do you post?
Post things that are positive, inspiring and uplifting. Some post can actually go viral and expand your audience.
You should also post family things like trips to the Zoo with your kids. These help people relate to you as a real person. It helps them get to know, like and trust you.
Post team recognition, success stories, transformation, before & afters. But do not include the product name or the company name.
This is a great way to create curiosity and having people reaching out to you.
Make some lifestyle post. Take pictures while on vacation, at the park, and at company events. The picture below was taken a couple weeks ago while were at an event in Vegas.
Here is a homework assignment for you:
Pretend that you are a stranger and don’t know yourself. Now go look at your profile and scroll down your wall. Then ask yourself this question. Would you join you? That is how strangers are going to react to you too.
All the above might sound very basic. But I see people every day that are not following these tips. Now that you have the foundation to start attracting prospects. you will want to grow your following and start also actively prospecting the right way.
The next blog post in this Facebook marketing series will cover how to do active prospecting including scripts. Then I will cover how to grow your friends and followers so you have more prospects to approach.
We are on a mission to help families create massive success to achieve their goals and dreams.
