You can have success in your Direct Sales Business if you follow a few basic steps. Naturally you should pick a business that you are passionate about with products that you have used.
It is important to make sure the business you choose is product centered, has great associate support, and is established. Unless you already have track record of proven success with a direct selling business, stick with established businesses. Once you make this business successful you can always try out a “start at the bottom” deal.
While a lot of people will say it does not matter, picking the right person to be sponsor or up line does matter. Especially if you’re new to running a direct sales business. You can succeed without them, but it will help.
Pick someone who is established, has been with the company for awhile, earns their full time living via the company, and who will help you.
Yes, you are going to be new and you want new people to sign up with you, but having a great up line with experience will help you get ahead of the pack.
You should have a special place for your business. If you cannot have an actual office, then have a space that means “work” , so that you can transition easier between work and home life. You need a work space, or desk, computer, paper, and typical office supplies and tools.
Create a business and marketing plan. You do not have to reinvent the wheel, and in fact you should not. You should read, memorize and get to know all your training information from the company. Also, you should follow the steps suggested for the most success. These are steps that someone else followed already, and had success, use them.
Schedule your business. It is important for your family and the health of your business to have clear working times. Yes, it is flexible, but try to carve out specific times to work whether it is one day a week, five days a week, or just a few hours a week. Schedule it, and stick to it as much as possible.
