Low Start-Up Cost – Whether you earn a top executive income working for a corporation or you are a stay-at-home parent, the initial expense to get up and running fits almost anyone’s budget. This is one of the biggest reasons the industry has grown exponentially over the last 10 years. As more and more people lose their jobs, they are turning to Network Marketing to get back on their feet. With no overhead, no office space to lease, no employees to hire and a tiny start-up cost, it is a no-brainer.

Flexible Lifestyle – Since you are the boss, you get to choose when and how long you work. Having the ability to work around your personal life is so attractive; especially to those who are very busy. You can start building your business by squeezing in just a couple hours a day. Whether it’s early in the morning, after lunch or the middle of the night it doesn’t matter. You can build a business at any time of the day.

Leverage – The key to generating a large income is leveraging off the efforts of others. By training others to do exactly what you do successfully, you can not only earn off of their efforts, but off the efforts of those they train as well. This creates exponential growth in your business, which in turn creates exponential growth in your paycheck and in your free time. Leverage makes your business grows whether you are working or not. This means you are no longer trading time for money, but instead investing time that pays you over and over again.

Time Freedom – The older you get, the more you realize that time is your most valuable asset. If done correctly, Network Marketing gives you the ability to take control of your time and use it as you wish. This, again, is achieved by using leverage. The bigger you build your distribution network, the less you have to work. Not a bad deal.

Financial Freedom – The number one reason people get involved in the Network Marketing industry is so they don’t have to live paycheck to paycheck anymore. Your income potential is virtually unlimited. You get to decide how much you want to earn, and with the power of leverage, your profits will grow like crazy. Just as you earn more time through leverage, you can create an ever-growing income that gets bigger on its own.

Presentation or Content: What is more important?

A marketer for more than two decades, Edan Gelt has often debated with colleagues and clients about which is more important, presentation or content. This argument has covered everything from RFPs and presentations to marketing campaigns and website development. On one hand, you want to present the importance of your concept but on the other hand, a ton of data does not entice someone to consider you.

Decisions

The best way to describe the presentation and content is to relate it to the way children make choices.

It’s a holiday, you offer two equally sized packages to your child and tell him/her to choose one to open. One of the packages is wrapped in sparkly paper with a beautiful bow – the other a brown beat up, raggedy box.

In the brown box sits a brand new iPad, the other sparkly package contains a blank old notebook of the same weight. The child doesn’t know what each box contains. Which box will be chosen?

Plan Ahead

Before you create your presentation, RFP, website, etc. – know your target audience. According to Edan Gelt, if you don’t know your audience, you won’t know how to engage them. For example, my son would want something wrapped in blue where my daughter would immediately go for the sparkly wrapping.

Are you presenting your ideas to clients, business partners, or colleagues? Do you want to encourage, inspire, or persuade them to take action? Knowing your audience and your goals will help you craft your content and presentation. What package do they want to open and what do they expect to find?

Content with a Kick

This involves gathering data and supporting information about your content and including visuals to make your message clear. Consider what your audience needs to remember after you deliver your message. Begin by removing all the information that isn’t important or may be confusing.Then add color, pictures, metaphors, examples or whatever it takes to make the content visually appealing and relatable

Designer Delivery

If you are emailing an RFP or delivering a speech – connecting with your audience doesn’t just depend on the presentation itself. The delivery is just as important – the introductory email, the passion that shines through when you talk, or the platform you use to introduce a new product.

If you are emailing your RFP, relate to the person you are emailing. Learn about them or their business and express interest before adding the “attached, please find”.

If you are giving a speech, be dynamic, use body language and facial expressions to engross the crowd – show the passion behind the product.

If you’re promoting a website through an online platform – engage with the audience with information they find relevant that relates to your website.

Using snail mail? Consider packaging that entices the recipient to open the package.

Conclusion

While many business professionals prioritize content, the presentation should never be neglected in lieu of great information. You may have the most relevant and groundbreaking information or product of all time, but an uninteresting delivery will bore your audience or may never reach them.

According to Edan Gelt, a fancy package or dynamic presentation might dazzle the audience but will achieve nothing if your content is lacking. This only proves that presentation and content are equally important to a successful end result.
