It’s actually quite simple. A self liquidating offer is simply something that you can offer up front for low cost to create up front income for your business.

Usually an SLO will consist of an eBook that sells for $20-$40 and is attractive to your prospects.
Of course the lower the cost, the more attractive to your prospects.
A $20 SLO is better than a $40 SLO just because the lower the cost the easier it will be to sell.
An example of an SLO (Self Liquidating Offer) would be Mike Dillard’s “Magnetic Sponsoring”

Now you are about to discover the secrets to using an SLO (Self Liquidating Offer) effectively in Your Network Marketing Business.
I think it’s very important to Stop Here and Take Note of this Important message before we continue:
***Remember that we use an SLO to generate up front income and it has a small ticket price. This is mainly because you don’t have any leverage with your prospect, they don’t know you and they don’t trust you yet. SO, your SLO is Incredibly important as it will be a big step in creating a trust based relationship with that prospect. Make sure your SLO is of great quality because essentially it is representing You to that prospect and the value that you have to offer them.***
Ok, so how to implement.
The best idea is to start a conversation with your prospect in one way or another generally using Social Media. Never throw your offer out in the first steps of conversation. Offer help, information, knowledge, and Friendship FIRST!
After you have conversed a couple times at that point you are able to offer your SLO.
BUT, never present it as a sale!
What I mean is don’t think you have permission to sell this prospect because you talked a couple times and suddenly send them to a sales page.
Instead offer your SLO as a way to Help your prospect genuinely.
