It Works has incredible, simple and fun ways for Distributors to successfully grow their business. One of my favorite ways to Grow my It Works Business is with Blitz Cards.
When I was considering becoming an It Works Distributor back in 2012, one of the things that impressed me most were the ready-to-go resources, and tools available that can be used to grow our It Works Business.
I researched It Works very thoroughly, in many different areas. The decision on whether this was the right fit for me was super-important, as I wanted to replace my income as quickly as possible, and to be free to do It Works full-time.
What is Blitzing with It Works Body Wraps?
Blitzing consists of giving out your business card, which doubles as a coupon. Blitz Cards are not the size of a regular business card, but are instead the size of a postcard.
Have you ever noticed something most business cards have in common, and what happens most often when you receive someone’s business card?
Business cards are the same size & they’re so tiny! They go into a pocket, a handbag, or a wallet. Maybe they get taken out soon, and then they’re tossed into a drawer, a glove-box, or onto a counter-top. At some point the recipient re-discovers them… months later, and has no idea where they got it, or who gave it to them!
Since I became an It Works Distributor back in August 2012, I have never bought traditional business cards, and exclusively use the It Works Blitz Cards. It’s rare for someone to throw them away! They usually go somewhere prominent, like on a refrigerator, or displayed on a desk as a reminder to the person who receives it to take action.
What’s So Special About It Works Blitz Cards
- They’re large enough so they don’t get lost, and you’re thought of, and remembered
- They are printed on both the front, and back side, and use our branded black & green colors
- They display a before & after photo of what the It Works Body Wrap does
- They show all of the places a person can apply the wrap; anywhere form the chin & neck on down the body
- They describe how it tightens, tones, and firms the skin while diminishing stretch marks, cellulite, & varicose veins
- There’s a have a coupon for your recipient to purchase a single body wrap from you, to host a wrap party, or sell it by joining your team
- Provides your name, your website, and your phone number so they know to contact you
How to Use the It Works Blitz Card
There are so many ways you can use the It Works Blitz Cards, while simply living your life, and doing the things you normally do. You can also use them intentionally, and strategically too. Here are just a few of the ways.
While you are shopping, running errands, dining out, and making natural everyday conversation with people, simply say towards the end of conversation…
“Oh, by the way can I give you one of my cards? I represent It Works Body Wraps & Wellness. My card doubles as a coupon.” (show the front side) “This is our body wrap, and the areas it can be used” (flip the card around to the before & after) “And this is what it does. Maybe you know someone who might be interested. My contact info is here, and there’s even a coupon to try it for 1/2 off.”
Then be quiet, and allow them to speak!
Eight out of ten times, the person will say something like: “Wow, does it really work?” (show them before & afters stored on your phone) or, “I’ve been looking for this!” or, “I know someone who uses it, and they look amazing!” or, “Thank you, I’ll definitely be in touch”
When they do this, I take our my pen & one of our Free Body Wrap Entry Form Slips, and say: “Yes, it does, and I personally do a giveaway drawing for a free body wrap. Just fill out the top three lines, and you’ll be entered into my personal drawing to win one.”
The top three lines are Name, email, and cell phone. Below this there are “check-boxes” for them to indicate an interest in buying, selling, or hosting a wrap party. They fill it out, and now you have a lead to follow up with!
More in a moment, on how to follow up… But think about how many leads you can get in a day, a week, a month, or a year?!?
Another way is through vendor booth events. Set up a booth at a health club, gym, salon, spa, networking event, craft fair, show, festival, health fair, and more. Your display should have just a few products, a before & after photo album, your blitz cards, a lead box or fishbowl for completed entry forms, and a small clipboard with a pen for your drawing entry forms. You can get 10, 20, 50, 100 leads or more with just one event.
Another way… go window shopping. This can be in any type of store… clothing, housewares, linens, appliances, accessories, furniture, etc. Go in, look around. A salesperson approaches and asks if they can help you find something… “Yes…” Pull out a blitz card & hold it up. Then point to it an say… “I’m looking for ____________ in this shade of green.” The now help you find your shade of green. Then you simply say… “Oh, by the way… I should give you my card.” Repeat the script above.
Business Blitzing… is one of my favorites! Once a week, or so I’ll take 1-2 hours and go out in my community. I’ll go find a busy commercial area near a hospital with a lot of Dr. Offices, or near a strip mall, or a good street that is walking-friendly, and quaint with a lot of businesses. One by one, I walk-in and approach the first employee that I see.
“Hi, I’m Stephanie and am giving free coupons to employees of local businesses. How my employees do you have today?” No matter how many they say I give them 5 blitz cards (unless there are less than 5). I hold them up and say… (Repeat the script above) If they are super-excited, or positive I will say… “If you have 4 co-workers or friends who want to wrap, I’ll wrap you for free. It can be an office party at lunch, or after hours, a home, or a coffee shop.”
Lead Boxes… I will create or purchase ready to go “Free Body Wrap Drawing Lead Boxes” and provide drawing entry forms & 5-10 blitz cards. I try to have 5-10 of these “working for me” on auto-pilot at all times. Keep a few in your car, and go into any business that has good traffic, and a “waiting area” and ask the person in charge if you can leave a free body wrap drawing box in their waiting area, in exchange for giving them a free body wrap once a month.
Good places with waiting areas to leave your lead boxes are: Dr. Offices, Dentists, Insurance Agents, Salons, Spas, Health Clubs, Take-Out Restaurants, Dry Cleaners, Pharmacy’s, Day Care Centers, the Teachers Lounge at Schools, Auto Repair, and soooo many more!
Once a week, stop into “your businesses” and pick up your leads & replenish your forms & blitz cards.
It Works Distributor Blitzing Tips
- Always have wraps with you. Often when you give someone a Blitz Card they will ask, “Where, or how can I get them?” Just let them know that you have them with you right now. The It Works Wraps easy for anyone to apply at home, and within about 3 minutes to any area of their body. Or, that you can wrap them right now in a restroom in 3 minutes. Be sure to have a wrap bag with Saran, or Fab Wrap to secure the wrap in place.
- Few people carry cash, so be sure to get set up with a free APP on your mobile device to accept credit, or debit cards on the spot. You can use Square Up, or Intuit GoPayment. It’s so simple!
- Wear an It Works Shirt wherever you go. We have so many styles available at MyItWorksStore.com for women, men, children & even pets!
- Get Magnetic Signs for your car from MyItWorksStore.com (under signage). They’re super affordable at just $15.95 and customized with your website, cell phone & even your name if you’d like. You can also get a rear-window banner decal that’s customized with your contact info as well.
- It goes without saying, always have plenty of Blitz Cards with you. We have different styles with men, or women, in different languages, and for the different countries It Works is available in. You can get them at MyItWorksStore.com under Sales Tools.
- Relax, be friendly, and open to making new friends wherever you go. When I am away from home I make it a practice to smile at strangers, and say hello. When in line at a store, or interacting with anyone providing customer service ask people how their day is going. Genuinely compliment people on something you notice, and sincerely find attractive. It could be a piece of clothing, shoes, an accessory, jewelry, a watch, their hair, their smile, their children. Discover the good in people!
It Works Distributor Follow Up on Blitzing Leads
Before you begin following up with people, make sure you have an appointment calendar, or planner. Go through you calendar and block out the non-negotiable times in your schedule, such as work, children’s dates, Dr appointments, church, dates with your spouse, etc.
Now that you’ve blocked out your commitments, it’s time to do some planning. I recommend you block out one day per week for a self-hosted wrap party, sample party, or demonstration. I like to use a coffee shop that as easy access, and within 10 minutes from my home. I find that people are comfortable attending at a public place, versus going to your home, or having to clean their home to have guests over. Look at your calendar, and choose a regular day of the week, and a time that works for you. It could be a weeknight, or a weekend afternoon. Now that you’ve decided, block out a 2 hour window for this every week.
Also, think about any other times that are good for you to offer a one-on-one appointment.
So, you have people who have filled out your wrap drawing slips & have expressed an interest. Call them within 48 hours after Blitzing them. Let them know who you are, and that it was great meeting them. Let them know right away that although they haven’t won the drawing yet, that you are touching base to invite them to attend your wrap demonstration coming up this week, or you do have a few times available for a private appointment. Offer them $5 off their wrap, for each person they bring with them who pays $25 to wrap. If they have 5 friends, theirs is free.
I also like to do what I call an It Works Sample Demonstration, or Party. For this I have people sample our Berry Greens, try the Defining Gel on their hand, or arm, and do the Fat Fighter Demonstration. Sometimes I will have our ProFit Shake Samples. Samples of Greens & ProFit are served in small Dixie Cups. Keep it simple!
At the sample Demonstration, or any appointment you simply point to the photos, and read the text from our “Party Presentation Pad” which is a small flip-book. This presentation is so simple anyone can do it. Always sit at a table, or in a chair, or even on the floor when you do a presentation. You will be more comfortable, and your guests will be more comfortable. Anytime you stand it makes you, and those attending uncomfortable. Relax, and enjoy your new friends.
I also like to text each blitzing lead a few days after I meet them. I will let them know who I am, and that it was great to meet them. Then I let them know that if they send me a friend request on Facebook they will get a 2nd entry into my free wrap drawing. I text them a link to my Facebook profile & let them know I look forward to connecting with them!
