If looking for ways to earn a few extra bucks with a side hustle, you’re likely to encounter hundreds of strategies. No matter where you’re from or what you do for a living, the direct selling industry is accessible to everyone; at any age, no matter circumstances.
3 simple and effective get – started tips:
- Identify your WHY?
It is important to understand why you are making the decision to commit to building your direct selling business. The first step to figuring out your WHY is to have a vision and a mission. All companies have a mission statement that can help you identify with your WHY. A company’s true purpose should somewhat match the values and morals of your WHY. It is important to keep a reminder of your WHY, which will help you build a successful business.
- Establish yourself as a brand.
Establishing yourself as a brand does not mean to wear all the apparel and go out parading the business to every potential prospect you encounter. Conversely, this may appear as negative or insincere. The most authentic way to brand your direct selling business is by storytelling. In other words, by stating how your direct selling business has changed your life. By doing this, your potential prospect can see how you are being true to what you are saying. There is no better way to demonstrate significant results by telling your true story, using this mode of action, will give you a higher chance of signing a potential prospect.
- Be Patient.
Cue yourself from time to time that building your direct selling business may take some time. Do not feel discouraged if you are told no; simply tell the prospect you understand it may not be a good moment for them right now. Confer your upline on how to approach this potential prospect and follow up a few days later. You can also bring on that fellow colleague or teammate who can also share his or her story.
