With the Internet being such a Huge hit for mlm prospecting, is there any reason why anyone would want to go offline to recruit using sizzle cards? You may be surprised.
Sizzle cards. Drop cards. They’re all the same thing. But most importantly, do they really work in this day and age?
As more and more people come online, it makes you wonder if the “offline” prospecting has been forgotten completely.
People are bombarded by marketing mesages left an right online. Are the people in the offline world are more receptive to marketing messages they see offline?
A lot of people seem to think so. And I would tend to agree. In fact there are networking companies that are using offline techniques to bring in customers and prospects into the online world.

People respond by either calling a recorded line (sizzle line) or they go to a website. The reason these are sometimes referred to as drop cards is because you “drop” them all around town. ATMs, convenience stores, in books, even on the sidewalk.
Your sizzle line or website should do a good job of sorting your prospects so that you spend your time calling back people who are serious.
I have used sizzle cards before and had some success with them. Which is why you really need to think it through on what message you put on your card and how you want people to respond…a website or recorded message. See below to see the reasons why.
In a nutshell they do work, however, you will have to ask yourself is it worth the time and money you invest into it.
Only you can answer that question. Just because someone else had success or (no success) with using sizzle cards, it doesn’t mean you will have the same results.
Here are some things to consider when using this marketing method:
So, what are the best kind of sizzle cards? If you read above, you know that I said you need to track your results.
However, these kind of sizzle cards, which are recommended by a top network marketing heavy-htitter, do very well.
