11 Things You Can Do To Achieve More Today

Posted on February 25, 2015. Filed under: Attitude, Beleif, Build It Make It Create It, Direct Sales Tips, Entrepreneurs ONLY, Get Your Energy Flowing, Goal Setting, How To Do The Business, How to Make It, Inspiration, Making It In Net Work Marketing, Problem Solving, Success n Network Marketing, Tips for your business, Vision Board, What if you could | Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

do something

It can be overwhelming.  Being your own boss will offer you moments of self doubt, crushing stress and frustration.  BUT…  but there’s also excitement, adventures, new possibilities and a whole lot of clapping and smiling when you achieve success.

You may not be able to quit your job today or follow every direct sales lead that comes your way, but every day contains within it countless opportunities, all waiting to see what you will do.

Theses are the choices that will make all the difference in your business.  They are the things that will determine your current level of success and your likelihood of you achieving your goals in the future.

So, WHAT IF?  What if you make some changes today and stick to them?  WHAT IF?  

Sometimes even the smallest shift in thinking or doing can create the biggest opportunities.

To get started:

1. Stop thinking and stopping there.  Getting a good idea is NOT enough. Write down all of your ideas, right when you have them.  Then, put them on your calendar and make them happen.

2. Challenge your beliefs about what you can and can’t do. You are better than you think you are.  Yeah, you really are that good!

3. Challenge your ideas about how things work. Sometimes when you decide how things should be you limit your ability to see how they CAN BE.  Take a look at how others ‘do the business’ and see which things you think you could try to adopt in to your day to day business plans.

4. Have a vision, a dream, a goal.  Write down your goals.  “I will… by this date…”  Then create a vision board and put on it those things that will be visible you when you achieve your goals.  (Directions for creating a vision board can be found in the search on this blog.)

5. Look for opportunities in every failure.  Avoid the victim mentality, everything that happens, whether to-you or by-you is an opportunity. Yes, EVERYTHING!  Change your attitude and start LOOKING for the opportunity in EVERYTHING.

6. Remove something from your life that doesn’t serve you.  Make room for something better and new.   These can be small things, like a cluttered work space or big things like a business partner that is holding you back.  Either way, take the time to evaluate those things that you let in to your business and make room for new things that will encourage growth.

7. Commit to something.  You know those things that you always say you’ll do but you never seem to start start—start them.  Go, right now, GO!  Write it on your calendar and figure out how to make it happen.  Take the first step right now.

8. DON’T think about what you DON’t want. DO think about what you DO want. Shift your energy from complaining, worrying and waisting time to doing, taking action and achieving.

9. Replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Positive energy creates positive results.  Enough said.

10. Self Improvement is a sign of growth and intelligence.  Anytime you improve your habits, you pave the path for personal excellence.

11. Forgive your self and others.  Let go of grudges. Removing barrier opens doors.

Targeting the Ideal Customer

Posted on September 30, 2014. Filed under: Build It Make It Create It, Direct Sales Tips, Entrepreneurs ONLY, Expand Beyond Your Warm Market, Get in Front of an Ideal Audience, How To Do The Business, How To Grow Your Direct Sales Team, How to Make It, How to Reach Your Target Audience, Making It In Net Work Marketing, Network Marketing Made Easy, Reach Your Target Audience, Targeting | Tags: , , , , , , |

How do you target the ideal customer?

To successfully introduce new customers to you company and the products you offer,  it’s essential to focus exclusively on the prospects you believe are most likely to purchase from you.

WHO are they?  We asked a few of our favorite independent direct sales reps:

-Your ideal customer may be prospects who are currently buying something similar and will appreciate the additional features your new product or service provides.

-Your best prospects have a perceived need for what you offer, can afford to buy it and have demonstrated a willingness to do so–probably by purchasing from your competition. Bear in mind, it’s always easier to fill a need than to create one.

Share the benefits and features that your prospective customers will value most.  The bottom line is that working with you and your company should be unique and meet the needs and desires of your best prospects.  Show then how you can make that happen.

How?

Will you market online, via catalog or by archery target? Generally,  a multi-channel marketing tactic will help you achieve the greatest success.

Why?

Customers who can shop when and however they like tend to spend more and shop more often. Suppose your strategy is to market a weight loss product to people who can’t afford gym memberships or high-priced home equipment. You might choose traditional face to face/home party direct marketing plus a website as your primary channels, and then online ads and e-mail solicitations that link to your website.  These are all great ideas, but no one action alone is going to give you the results that you are looking for.  Aim to combined all of them.

When?

For startup entrepreneurs, the need to constantly tinker with the business never ends. “You have always got to be thinking about how you can tweak whatever you have to make it even better.”

If you feel like you have too much going on, stop and just focus on just one at a time. Try spending time on one project per day and see how much you accomplish.

Trending Topics in Direct Sales

Posted on September 18, 2014. Filed under: Build It Make It Create It, Direct Sales Tips, Entrepreneurs ONLY, Get Results, Get Your Energy Flowing, Getting the Job Done, How To Do The Business, How To Grow Your Direct Sales Team, How to Make It, Making It In Net Work Marketing, Network Marketing Made Easy, Problem Solving, Success n Network Marketing, Tips for your business | Tags: , , , , , , |

Direct selling is certainly a classic sales method and given the reach of the Internet in the business world, the approach to direct selling has a larger reach than ever before.

TOPIC: The debate is on!!! Coffee shop or online blog? Door to door or email contact list? Typical meeting or online chat? How’s a poor marketer to decide? It used to be that “Face Time” with prospects through all stages of a sales cycle was the only way. It was was tried and true, but with all the gadgets used today, “Shopper” no longer seem to value the antiquated ritual.  It seems that “Face Time” may no longer be necessary at all.

More often than not, sales go through – online without any direct contact at all. Independent Sales reps can now use the Web to conduct product demonstrations, hold multi-person sales trending topics thurspresentations, all kinds of things that help them connect with their audience.

Here’s just an example:
For many top recruiters, email has replaced the phone as a primary method of reaching out to contact new prospective customers for the first time. The traditionalist would say this selling tactic is bad even though it brings down the cost of doing business and takes less time, but sales don’t lie. TODAY’S TOP SELLERS IN EVERY DIRECT SALES COMPANY are the ones with a strong online presence and a long email contact list.

PROBLEM: There is one pit fall that online marketers face -ISOLATION- working in isolation tends to make reps less productive than if they work in groups, even small ones, where they can feed off each others momentum.

SOLUTION: Form a team that can share sales strategies. The best ones are social clubs for entrepreneurs and sales professionals that to help them learn how to get good at sales and to have fun doing it. There should be no sales “gurus” or “experts” in these groups. Let every leader show off and share their smart. Ambitious people will have a lot to share and will help the whole group work hard to reach their goals. Having FUN is what will keep the motivation engine revving.

Who Really Wins In Direct Sales

Posted on January 11, 2013. Filed under: All Company Reviews: Breaking MLM, Attitude, Build It Make It Create It, direct Sales Statistics, Getting the Job Done, Make Money Fast, Making It In Net Work Marketing, New Marketers, Success n Network Marketing, What Kind of Network Marketer are You? | Tags: , , , , , , |

Who are the REAL Direct Sales Winners?  

Certainly the company owners are successful   Or not…  many Direct Sales companies fail in the first 2 years because of poor planning,  but for those that do survive the ‘terrible’ two’s’, yes, their planning pays off and they reap the rewards of residual income.  They also will have brought in a few key ‘master distributor’ or ‘founders’.  These folk, if they stuck with it through the launch stage, will be starting to get pay back in full.  So, yup, they are winners.  

Who else wins it in Direct Sales?  Is there any Real Money left to be made , if you weren’t there right in the beginning?  

ABSOLUTELY!  

It used to be that companies reserved about 50% of their total payout for the top 2% , but recently, companies have been taking a new approach to the age old problem of retention   Early payouts for top recruiters are now attracting big hitters to jump in and they are not just jumping from company to company.  Todays newbies are coming from other industries.  The economy may be partly to blame.  With fewer high-end sales positions available, many uniquely quailed sales reps have had to think less traditional and have turned to Direct Sales.  These rising stars are WINNING BIG, with companies offering new bonus as big as $3,000 to $300,000 in your first 3 months.

That kind of cash is attractive and professional sales reps are taking notice.  Direct Sales stereo types are a thing of the past.  Todays top earners, the REAL Winners are Reps with ‘play to win-win’ philosophy.   

These are the  new rain maker‘Rainmakers’!  

 

They respect, and always try to satisfy, the best interests of their prospects.  Knowing that a win for the client means a win for them too. They are also extremely dedicated to becoming top performers.  They have often times been in the position before and they have a won’t settle attitude, exhibiting the hustle, passion, and intensity it takes to achieve what only the elite achieve.

Winner Do.  They just do.  They do the work.  They look for opportunity and they make things happen.  Anyone can be a Direct Sales Winner.  Companies have heard the request and are now rewarding ‘The New Kid”.  Getting some of the action has never been easier!  It’s a great time for Direct Sales!
