My Personal Experience As A La Bella Baskets Gift Consultant

Before I tell you about my personal experience as a La Bella Baskets gift consultant I would like to give you details about the company for those of you that have never heard of it.

La Bella Baskets is an online gift basket and flower store that was started by Janis Rodriguez and Mia Florides in 2008. The company became a direct selling company in December of 2009. Janis and Mia's purpose for starting La Bella Baskets was to give ordinary people a chance to start their own business without a large investment and to give back to single moms through their La Bella Baskets of Smiles Program. The company sells over 300 gourmet gifts for every occasion such as gift baskets, cookie bouquets, flowers, diaper cakes and much more.

I've been with the company since September 2010. This is my second direct selling company and I left my previous company (even though I really liked their products) because I couldn't meet the quotas. The main reason I joined La Bella Baskets is because the company didn't have quotas and no requirements to do parties. I also liked the company's low start up fee of $19.95 a month.

The company has three ways (through referrals, gift sales, corporate account) to create an income and I decided to focus on the referral program. I received my first referral the first month (September 2010) I joined La Bella Baskets. My best month for referrals so far was May 2011. I received 3 referrals that month. (At the end of this I will show a video that has a list of the names of the top gift consultants in gift sales and referrals.)

Some of the ways I have gotten referrals is through Facebook, Craigslist, a wahm forum, and a separate website I created.

I still like being with the company because I believe it's so much easier to promote when there are no requirements to do parties and quotas.

How to Generate Free Leads at LinkedIn

Generating free leads online can be a great way to get more customers and referrals for your business. As a business owner or network marketer you are probably already know that Facebook and Twitter are great places to generate free leads. But did you know LinkedIn is another great place to generate leads and expand your warm market?

Compared to Twitter and Facebook, LinkedIn is more professional and has higher quality people. The website has over 100 million users and the average income of the users is $100,000 or more.

Since LinkedIn is more professional than other social networking sites there are some rules you need to follow. The webinar below by Jaime Soriano does a great job of explaining the proper way to use LinkedIn to generate free leads. (When I watched this webinar I couldn't believe all the great and useful information that was given out for FREE).

Remember no matter what social networking sites you use to get leads it takes time. It will be worth it if you take the time to do it the right way. So be patient and learn as much as you can about generating leads online.

Have You Heard of Tumblr?


If you are looking for a FREE blog website that is different from Blogger and Wordpress, you might want to check out a new website called Tumblr. I'm not sure how long it's been around but Tumblr is a little similar to Facebook and Twitter. Your homepage is sort of like a news feed and you can add followers.

I'm still new to Tumblr so I don't know a lot about it but what I like the most about it is you can reblog people's posts. If you own a business this can be very beneficial because if you have interesting posts and
several people have reblogged your posts this could easily turn into viral marketing. I'm still testing it out to see if I will get any good results from Tumblr.

To see what Tumblr is check out my Tumblr blog:

Are People Really Buying Gift Baskets?

When people need a gift to give to a loved one there are so many products for customers to choose from. But what makes gift baskets stand out from the rest of the products is they can be personalized specifically for the gift recipient. With a gift basket you are able choose a gift basket that fits your gift recipient's tastes and interests and it shows the person that you put some thought into their gift. When someone knows you took the time to choose a gift they would love, it will make them feel so special.

If you think people are only buying gift baskets during the holidays you are sadly mistaken. Check out the statics about the gift basket industry below:

- The industry has had an amazing amount of growth over the last twenty years and is now worth around 3.3 billion dollars annually in the U.S.

- Gift baskets make up part of the gift industry which is worth over 200 billion dollars a year. They are ranked fourth as a category behind other popular gifts like clothing and vouchers.

Here's some information about men and the gift basket industry:

- The industry has long been dominated by women and even though men are slowly getting more involved, women make up the majority of business owners in this industry. Women are also more likely than men to be customers.
