Party Plan Business Tip: How to Get a Sale Today!

How to get 3 sales today... Does this title intrigue you?
Of course it does (just a little, right?) We all want to know how we can get more and get it faster. The only problem might be that if you haven't done your homework to this point, then those sales are probably not going to, anyway.
But if you have, you can pretty much count on a heavy shove to get you a short blast of sales quickly.
Here's what I'm talking about...
If you have been diligent about doing most of the things I support (and constantly urge you to do), you can do a "quick sale blast" to almost guarantee yourself those sales and by they end of today! For example, if you've been keeping up with customers by sending monthly messages, doing videos, touching base...then yes, they know you and trust you and if you do a short sales blast, you could likely see lots more orders. However, if you haven't done the homework (ugg, hate that word!), then sadly, you are no…

Party Plan Tips: How To Book a Party by Friday!

Book a Party by Friday! Do you need a Here is one method that will work for you quickly and you can use it whenever you need a new booking to get the profits rolling.

The best part? You don't even need to leave your house!

All you need to do is take a hint from the uber-popular (and profitable) shopping channels and do a home party video. Just gussy up, put on some lipstick, position yourself in front of your video camera or webcam and do a short video promoting three products that work together.

Why just three products? Because if people think they have to sit through a loooooong video, they won't do it. Also, if you keep it short and sweet and keep the products related, it will have a message. Plus this method is so much easier than online parties...people can watch it whenever they like.

For instance, if you sell kitchenwares, do a simple video on your three best non-stick items and provide a recipe. Or for cosmetics, do a video on how to create a smokey eye and ha…

How to become a WEALTHY WAHM...

Getting REFERRALS Faster... Do theses situations apply to you...? 1. You have customers.

2. Your customers enjoy your product or service.

3. You're frustrated because, even though your customers know you and like your products and services...they DON'T TELL anybody about how good you are!

Do you like referrals? Everybody does. They are a warm lead. A lead that says "someone I know and trust recommended you." That almost helps to create a sale without anything else. However, getting referrals is sometimes awkward. Asking your satisfied customers is easy--as long as you remember to do it.

To ensure you don't forget, develop a flier to goes to everyone who places and order. Let them know how much you appreciate referrals. Ask them to email you the name, address and phone/email of three people. If they do, send them a free gift. After your customer orders, you can follow up a few days later to ask how the products are perf…

Best Direct Sales Business Tips Ever!

The Best Direct Sales Tips Ever! (PART TWO) If motivating your team is top priority (and really, if you're a leader, it should be) this tip is for you. It's a little Psychology 101: Make people feel special and they'll perform better.

How do you make people feel special? Sure you can offer them gifts, special training, personal phone calls to check in, but do these things really matter? Absolutely! Any time you go out of your way to help someone individually, it will make a difference.

However, to really shine the spotlight on top team members, make them a part of your "TOP TIER" training team. Let them train, teach and motivate.

One way is to film them doing a party and use it in your own training. Everyone has a video camera these days. Set it up and see what your top members are doing and share it. Make them superstars in your business and they'll want to keep succeeding.

In the words of Oprah "People all want to feel like they matter; like they are notice…

Direct Sales Tips: Use Showbiz To Grow Your Business

The Best Direct Sales Tips Ever! (PART THREE) Dr. Oz says eating bacon can lead to cancer...
OK, so I used a known name and a provacative leading line to get your attention. I'm not lying...I'm going to show you how you can grow your audience like Dr. Oz, Oprah, Dr. Phil...all of them do it!

Third: Here's where Dr. Oz comes in. He (and almost all other TV hosts) use tantalizing info to get you to tune in. So as you're watching TV and putting a piece of delicious crunchy bacon in your mouth, he appears and says "Bac…

Direct Sales Tip: Lame Idea to Avoid

The Best Direct Sales Tips Ever! (PART Four) You've heard them...the old school ideas that some recruiters and mentors are still trying to pass out as business builders. Things like: 1. Talk to everyone you know...of course you're going to want to tell people about your business, but this is just another example of casting a wide net and crossing your fingers. What's better: Make it a point to talk to the right people everyday. You know whose a good fit for your products. Make sure those are the people who know about you and skip the rest. 2. Scare folks: I heard this one a few years ago: "I was told to walk up to women in drugstores and tell them they are just cute as a bug and I would love to give them a makeup class." Uh-huh. Right. That sounds fun. How about getting a few stares and people avoiding you? Don't just assume everyone wants your free class. It might be OK to give them your card or some free sample, but don't scare people or you'll find yourse…

Direct Sales Business Tip: Is Blogging Worth Your Time?

The Best Direct Sales Tips Ever!
(PART Five)

You know you should do it, but do you?
You know what I'm talking about: BLOGGING.
Everyone has doing it for years now. But even with your best intentions, unless you have time to sit and do it faithfully at least once a week, does it really matter? Especially with your business?
My answer? Yes and yes.
Here's why:
You may have a website and you may even be a good emailer and send out your monthly promo emails (good girl!). But, unless you're posting regularly to an established blog, you are missing a good deal of traffic.
Now, I have to admit, I'm not the best blogger. I have blogs and I post to them, but I'm not as great at writing regularly as I should be. (Hey, I'm honest!)
So, you ask, why should you listen to me?
I'll tell you...When I do post on my blogs and post good info, I can literally track more traffic on my blogs. And since I always post links, I know some of those people are vis…
