Yep. Yep. Woo y'all know me. I love to celebrate the wins. We are going to be doing an amazing giveaway for the next 10 days and here's the deal. I am gifting two 30 minute coaching strategy calls completely free. One of those has your name on it. Yeah, here's what you gotta do.

Once a day. Every story must have asked Stephanie gas tag and hashtag the mom for her mastermind ship. Some two women are going to win. Why not? You? Okay? Don't worry if you're like, but I already missed half the giveaway. Should I still, of course you should still enter because you never know.
God works in amazing mysterious ways. And he's like, I've got my eyes on you because you need this session and you just never know. So get on over to the hygiene, write the review, posts it up in the stories, get entered and let's get some give away fun. Go in. That was weird. Okay, girl, I'll meet you inside this 10 by 10. Get ready. These are gold. Hey bosses in this 10 by 10. I am jamming with my friend. That's local to me. Larysa Marshall and she's super passionate about health and fitness. She is a network marketer who is also working to expand her brand inside of that wellness, fitness bodybuilding arena. And if you guys want to connect with her after this Q and a, you can head over to the gram. She is at Marshall Lorissa. That's M A R S H A L L L O R I S S A.
Hey girl. Hey Stef. How are you? Good. Awesome. So my first question for you would be, how do you grow your network to your ideal avatar? Okay. What do you mean by that? So for instance, if my ideal network is a little bit more financial savvy, then who I originate with, how do I get to those mamas? Okay. So you're talking about like, how do you kind of scale up from where you're sitting today? Yes, definitely. So I think what you want to start with is as you create your avatar and you're kind of mapping her out and knowing, okay, this woman, you know, she's making 80 plus K, where is she hanging out? What is she doing? What is she shopping for? What types of products is she buying?
And all of that, then you can really start looking at what is the content you're putting out and is what you're doing on social on potentially a podcast or YouTube channel or something. Is it touching her specifically knowing here her pain points here, her struggles here are the things that she needs from me. And you're targeting that woman, instead of, I'm just going to put all this stuff out here and see what sticks, you know, like I'm just going to throw these ideas out in the health and wellness arena and put these tips out here and maybe somebody likes it. It's kinda like it's created for her. And when you do that, the SEO you're using the copy in your, in your descriptions, that's where she'll start to find you when she does Google searches, you're using the keywords and the solutions that she would be searching for that woman.
So that's the first thing. The second thing is to start kind of networking and on how can you get visibility with someone else that already has your client base? Right? So if you're like, okay, I want to grow in this health and wellness sphere. And I, I found this podcaster and she's got this exact market of who I want to target, pitch her to go on the show and add value and teach something. So you can always start to collaborate with other people that already have your community. Does that make sense? Yes, definitely. Oh, wow. That is so helpful. Thank you. Next question would be, how do you overcome objections? Are these objections like price, objections or objections? Like people are judging you price, objections. Okay. You have to present things in a way where people don't feel like they're getting sold to first of all, and this is really hard with network marketing specifically because you're trying to sell a product that brings a solution.
So we promote the product like, Oh, you want to lose weight? You want to tone up, you want to have this healthy shake or what, or these nutritional products. And so we, we start, we lead with product, right? And then they're going, Oh, I can't afford that as we would. You know? And so we have to get into that brain of that woman. You want to help? And we have to start with pain point, okay. She can't find something healthy to feed her kids there. You know, there's a product that I have for that. She can't figure out how to not be hungry all day. Oh, I have a product for that. So you're leading with these triggers and these pain points for her. Like, Hey girl, today, we're going to talk about like two tips for staying full. I'm going to introduce you to fiber.
I'm going to introduce you to swapping out your high calorie snack for like the lower calorie density products and blah blah. So you teach her something, you get her to trust you. And then you casually mentioned, by the way, if you are looking for a product like that, I have one that I personally use. I love it because blah, blah, blah, Mary had results within two weeks. So the way that you're selling her, doesn't make her immediately think price. It makes her think solution result. And so already now the price objection is much lower. And then the second thing to talk about is you always want to have a solution at hand for her. Someone would come to me when I was in network marketing, I can't afford that. I'm like, no problem. Did you know that if you have three other friends that wanted to try this product as well, yours would be free or no problem. Did you know that if you just put it on subscription, you can get 20% off and you can cancel it next month if you want. So think about, is there a pricing solution for her to get her over the hump of at least trying the product, maybe giving her a sample of the product for a while to get her to see results. And once people see results, they will pay anything. Right?
Yeah. And so leading with testimony, leading with results just keep talking about it. Planting seeds. People need to hear something like seven to 15 times before they're ready and willing to spend money on it. So if they hear you over and over again, talk about you guys. I'm obsessed with this supplement. Like I am so energetic. I feel so clear headed. I've noted. The fogginess in the morning has gone. I have energy for my workout. It's an organic product. I love it. And you're not even saying, I know where you can buy it. It's just about you. It plants a seed. Right?
And last one, when working with a network marketing company, I had did a stump question. And you said, make sure that you're also branding yourself. So suggestions as to what that would look like when you're first starting out, when you're trying to promote the network marketing company, but you're also trying to brand yourself for sure. So it's really fast. Okay. So remember that your, your network marketing company isn't yours, no matter what they tell you, no matter what you could build, you could build $300,000 business and it could be gone tomorrow because they own it. You have nothing to show for it. So the smartest thing you can do, especially now that you're getting started in network marketing is brand youth. You've got Lorissa Marshall. Then you have like a tagline, right? And it's really clear. It's specific. It's who you're helping, what your promise is to her.
Like for, you know, I don't know enough about what you do to do this right now, but it would be something like, you know, I help coach women in body and confidence transformation. And then you would ask yourself, how do I do that for her? I can teach her workouts. I can teach her macros. I can talk about bodybuilding. I can have fitness on my brand. So you have these categories that solve, solve, solve, solve. All of that is free. All of it. And you're going, okay, all of this is free. I'm teaching, I'm teaching. I'm putting up on Instagram. I'm I have a podcast or a YouTube channel. That's how you start to build a brand and build an organic following and an audience first. And meanwhile, you have a little MLM over here in the corner. And I think what happens is people put MLM at the top and they think that's the thing, but that's not the thing.
You're the thing. Cause that's what grows trust. That's what grows visibility. That's what grows organic growth. And if you ever left your network marketing company, you just slide a new one in nobody even blinked. Nobody cares. Oh, Lorissa's, Lorissa's seeing success from this other one now amazing. I'm switching or Hey, in two years, you're like, I want to create my own product line. No problem. You slide that in. So that's what is why it's so important that you are the brand. So you it's what you're teaching her every week, free stuff, free stuff. Get her to have that change based on who she is and what she needs. And then casually sprinkled in, by the way, guys, did you need a plan for this? I've got one. Did you need a product for what I just talked about today? No worries. Hit me up. I'll give you all the details.
You guys want to try the products that I personally love holler at me. I'll shoot you a free sample. Like you're casually sprinkling in your network marketing business, just so that you can make some residual, some income while you build this brand. And that's how you, that's how you would do that. And I would even go as far as leave out the name of your company, I would never say it never. I would voice DM people and just open conversation. Get them to talk to you and open up about where their pain point is. And then you say, Oh, I might have a product for that. Like it's so casual. It doesn't feel like sales. It feels like, Oh, I love something. Did you want to try what I'm using? So we have a minute. If you have any follow up, Oh wow. I should have been more your best advice to somebody that's just starting out.
Trying to brand themselves, get super clear. And if this means we grab a 30 minute strategy session, like you have got to be extremely clear on one woman that you're talking to or one man, whoever that person is, you have to know how you're going to solve that problem. And then you have to show up for free every week consistently solving her problem in your own authentic way for a year. And there's not a lot of money in the audience building piece of it. But if you do it, it compound grows over time. So you can't get distracted. Don't, you know, look over here and go. Nancy's doing that. Like just stay true to what you know that you can solve for her.
I hope you loved that quick 10 by 10, and that you took away some value to help you in your own life and business. And I want you to know that I am bringing on more women for hashtag STEM steps, where you will get 10 minutes to ask me anything, just like this.
