That totally depends on your product and your lifestyle. Makeup, candles, nutritional products, diet products, and poker training all have very different places where you might the find people most open to your message. Assuming you are a "good" customer for you rproduct, where would we find YOU ? That is the essence of network marketing. If you are not a "good/typical customer" (like if I was trying to sell makeup), you may not be in the right company.

Try some online free method like article marketing, forum marketing, free classifieds, youtube, and see if you can get some nice leads.Article marketing is one of my favorite because it's gives you long term traffic to your site.

Let's start off with the basics. Share with us what products you have available for end user consumption? What is the pricing structure in general? Why did you join the company and start a business?

From the above we may be in a better position to provide some guidance. Be forewarned, there is no secret, no shortcut which will build your business other than use and understand your product, share it with other people, collect a decision regardless of what it is, sign them up or move on.

If you leave your house you've just discovered the best place to find customers. They're all over the place and all you have to do is look, listen, and have short conversations with follow up. This can all be accomplished in what I call, "daily living activity prospecting."

Now, this question may sting a little bit, but deal with it because it is reality. Have you talked with your sponsor? How about the upline? How about someone in the company already successful and learn what they do? Would this not be covered in the company "Getting Started" training? All of this begs they question, "Why are you here asking this question? (No offense meant here.)

Many people have built six figure incomes simply by talking with people, handing out home made business cards from their own printer, adding to their list everyday and following up. NWM'g is a simple business, not easy, but simple. It is still a business and requires time and serious effort.

The most productive way to find people as customers and potential business partners is to talk to as many people as possible, screw up totally, fail miserably, "LEARN FROM ALL OF IT," adapt, improve and keep on going. The most successful in life often times have failed the most.

Hi

Here are a few low cost and free tips for finding new customers in your local area or further afield.

Start a blog and build a low cost website.

Add your business details to Google Maps and Bing Local. This is currently free.

Add your website details or telephone number to the side of your car or business vehicle.

Order free or cheap business cards and flyers online from Vistaprint and distribute them locally.

Attend a local networking event for women in your area. You can find these advertised online or your local small business advisor should be able to point you in the right direction

Hope this helps a little.
