Why this is Exactly the Right Time for Your Small Business

You are a small business owner. You work hard. You manage and promote your businesses as you strive to succeed and a make difference in your finances. We know it’s a tough grind and that there are plenty of obstacles in your way. Covid-19 is just the latest in a long line of hurdles. The pandemic has touched every aspect of our lives and it is reminding us of how interconnected we all and how our actions can significantly impact those around us, as we find ourselves adapting to a new normal. How we respond to new demands, how we support each other through crisis, how we modify our ways of doing business and how we revise the ways in which we interact with both our business partners and our customers, all of these new interactions are shaping our new small business plans.

How we respond to new demands Things are not the same. Living and working through a pandemic is something new for all of us. The economy is being artificial supported by the federal government and showing no real signs of recovery. Economists and experts agree that the economy won’t really start to recover until there is a cure for the Coronavirus. The new world we find ourselves in can NOT be responded to in the same ways we are used to. We must search for new ways to respond to the new demands a of socially distant world. Gone are the days of face to face marketing and meetings in coffee shops. The Zoom call and other online interactions have replaced the time honored tactics of the most successful sales representatives and entrepreneurs. Today, small businesses are encouraged to do their part to keep their employees, customers, and themselves healthy. To do that, they need to be creative. Lucky for you, your business is already online. You have a link to your company website, a place where you can send people that want what you’ve got. You’re used telling people face to face how to get there. Now, for your business to survive, you will have to look for ways to tell them online.

  • Directories: Like FindSalesRep, Manta, Yelp and others
  • Advertisements: Google is the leader, but there are literally millions of places to buy ads
  • Social Media Marketing: There are a lot, but you will have the most success using Pinterest, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Facebook
  • Blog: Share ideas and products that can help others relieve some of the stress. Help people adapt to the new way of life that we are all facing and make life a little easier for others.

How we support each other through crisis There’s no denying how difficult these times are. Stress, hardship, uncertainty all require a response that is both empathetic and compassionate. In your business, you are a leader. Leaders need to look for ways to identify with the feelings, thoughts and attitudes of their customers, their teams, their employees and their business partners. Show that you, through your business have feelings of deep sympathy and sorrow for others who are stricken by misfortune. Show them that you have a strong desire to alleviate their suffering.

  • For your customers: Identify strategies that they can use today to combat there problems. Can your business offer a solution, some support or comfort?
  • For your Team or employees: How can you directly help them today? Can you call  or connect with them to identify what they need

How we modify our ways of doing business In these times especially, we are constantly reminded how one person’s action can impact the life of another. Just think about how big your reach can be and then work with others to make it even bigger.  Collaborate with your business partners to change how you do your business. Start work together to use your joint interests to become something bigger than you are apart. There are many types of business partnerships to consider. Businesses with different basic interests can partner together to share content or customers. The benefit of this type of collaboration is to reduce worry about competition. A great example is to host an online party. Invite 10 reps from different, non similar companies to host. In order to qualify as a host each must bring 2 reps with them to the party.  That’s 30 people at one event and a fun party! This idea also works for training events, swapping sprees, swag bag exchanges and basket giveaways, all of which can be done completely online. The swapping spree, swag bag exchange and gift basket giveaways can be run a little differently. They offer you and you business partners ways to share revenue.  If this sounds too confusing or too difficult, it’s not. In fact, chances are you are already a part of a revenue sharing partnership. If you or your business are an affiliate, consultant, representative or ambassador of any brands where you earn a percentage of the sale, that’s a revenue partnership. 😉 You can get creative with all of these types of partnership.

How we revise the ways in which we interact with both our business partners and our customers.  Meaningful interactions begin with kinder leaders. If you think back to the most impactful mentors you have had either professionally or unofficially, you will instantly remember their kindness toward you. They made time for you and they connected with you. Now, during this time of so much anxiety and suffering, you could take advantage of the moment  and seize the opportunity and become a more empathetic leader. Reach out and check in on your customers, teammates, employees and business partners. Treat them like friends and family.

These new interactions are shaping your new small business plan. Kindness is contagious and good for business.  Show genuine gratitude and interest in the concerns of others. Public display recognition and affection. Putting them first will have an mediate positive effect on your business. These small but meaningful gestures will create lasting connections of goodwill and mutual prosperity.

Take the extra time that you have during this imposed down time that we are all being forced to take and find new ways to make people happy!

Do Something You Love

We all have products or services that we LOVE. Maybe you love fashion, fitness, home decor or gourmet meals. Whatever it is, you love it so much that you share it with every one you meet and that passion has turned into a business.

Now you get to do what you love and make money at the same time. You are one of the luck few and you get to make your own rules!

But… we are living in crazy times. Everything has been upended because of Covid-19. Today, many of us are staying at home. Maybe that could be good for your home based business.

Question: How can you take a passion and build a business from home?

Answer: Tell the world about what you love.

Most companies provide their reps with a website. That’s the funnel where you want to ultimately send the people that are interested in what you’ve got, but you’ll need a bigger funnel to get them there. There are many ways to share your knowledge with the world and more is definitely better. Maybe you have a facebook page or a email list, but that is NOT enough. It’s time to start that youtube channel, a Pinterest post and maybe a blog that you’ve been thinking about, any place where you can share your unique story.

When you’re doing something you love, your story comes naturally.

Starting your business probably wasn’t your plan when you first joined the company you represent, but when you believe in something and you know it well, it’s easy to love doing it!  Look for new ways to stand out and share your story with the world. That’s exactly what everyone who has made it did, and they started just like you with something they felt passionate about and a story. You can too, if you don’t know where to start watch them, look at what they are doing and then build from their ideas and make something of your own.

One of favorite reps that ‘has made it’ is Diane Drayer ~ Scentsy Consultant in Branson, Missouri.

In 2010, Diane was honored to receive the Shining Star Award. This prestigious award is given to only one Scentsy Consultant a year and is based on the recommendations of their Scentsy peers.

Today, Diane is still loving and sharing Scentsy Wickless Candles. Check out Diane’s FindSalesRep.com NationWide Listing at https://www.findsalesrep.com/users/5764

Scentsy Consultant in Cincinnati Ohio

Please Welcome Angela Tippets ~ Scentsy Consultant in Cincinnati, Ohio

About Me

OMGosh! I love living life on my terms! I’ve been a Scentsy Rep for almost 10 years, and at the tippy top as a SuperStar Director since 2010 -it’s crazy where goals, hard work and an awesome team can take you! My husband (Scott) and I enjoy hanging out with our 3 almost grown children, we have a Harley Davidson motorcycle (we call it our “bonding” bike, our kids call it a mid-life crisis) and love to just go on rides together. My husband is super involved with the Boy Scouts of America and our son just finished his Eagle project. Our middle daughter, who had ovarian cancer at 15 is doing awesome and is now on a church mission for 18 months. Our oldest daughter just got married to an amazing young man and we couldn’t be more excited for them! We like to travel, try different restaurants -sometimes we’ll drive quite a distance for good food, hang out with friends, play cards, and a lot of times you’ll find me in our basement crafting away. I’m kind of an introvert, but as a business leader I’ve learned to be okay with getting out of my comfort zone. Our favorite thing is hanging out with our Scentsy friends while on earned, FREE incentive tripsI Most of our business is done online through social media and local events. Our team is called, “The Awesome Group” because they seriously are AWESOME! Even through our team is spread out globally, we mentor, teach, grow, learn, have fun, and enrich each other’s lives through live stream, team Facebook page, one-on-one conversations, and fun mail.

About My Company

Being a part of the Scentsy Family is so much more than warmers and wax! I joined as an Independent Scentsy Consultant in early 2007, then shortly after moved to Cincinnati Ohio area where we didn’t know a single person. It was hard because no one had heard of the Scentsy brand. Before I joined Scentsy, I started looking at other companies and what I wanted -or didn’t want. I knew I didn’t want to do facials or foot scrubs, clean or cook for anyone, or carry heavy products around. I definitely DID want to join a company that offered consumable products, who had great values and was forward thinking, who was also part of the DSA (there are strict rules and ethics for companies who belong to the DSA), and believed in giving back to the community. I wanted products that offered that “WOW” factor, products that were high-quality, and at least mostly manufactured/produced in the USA (our Scentsy Warmers are made in China and our Scentsy Bars and other additional products are manufactured in Meridian, Idaho), and that were family friendly so our kids could help out. I wanted the opportunity to grow with a great compensation plan, a company who values their employees AND their consultants. In the almost 10 years since my awesome Scentsy Start Up Kit showed up on my front porch, it has been the BEST journey. I won’t say it’s been easy, because it hasn’t always been easy. It’s been a lot of work, sacrifice, learning, growing, and becoming. Through my journey I’ve also learned a lot about myself, about friendships, team spirit, leadership, relationships, mentoring, teaching, goal-setting, supporting, encouraging, and business. We’ve met so many amazing people! When my daughter was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, our customers, our team, and our Scentsy family sustained our business while I focused on getting our daughter through those hard chemo treatments. To know that I’m a part of a tribe that cares, that values one another, that serves one another is a great feeling. The stability we have as a family, the opportunity I’ve been given to work from home on my terms, and flexibility of time has been a blessing. Scentsy is seriously THE BEST COMPANY to represent.

Featured Product Information

In December 2006 we had a close call when some tea lights caught our tabletop decoration on fire -about 6 inches from the wall in our house. Thank goodness we were home and our daughter saw that it was in flames. This was a decoration that was made for tea lights and that experience scared me to the point where I wouldn’t use candles any more. I was introduced to my first Scentsy warmer and the Scentsy system in early 2007 while working in a kindergarten classroom. The teacher had a Scentsy warmer in her class and I was a little concerned. She showed me how it worked, how it wouldn’t burn to the touch, and all the fun fragrances of the Scentsy bars. The concept was intriguing, and the business aspect excited me. I love that our Scentsy warmer and Scentsy bars are safe around children and pets, that our Scentsy essential oils are 100% natural, and that our Scentsy Diffusers are ultrasonic, nebulizing and use cool mist -all the best options.

Also, our Scentsy Laundry products are amazing! Seriously, I was a ___(insert brand)____ snob when it came to a certain brand of laundry products. The first time I tried our Scentsy laundry products though, there was no going back. While the process of doing laundry is still a mundane task, I do find myself actually enjoying it now.
