Marketing direct sales business is one of the most important steps to success. After all, if you are not a customer, you do not make any money. I have provided a few proven ideas that I use to market my Passion Parties business and hope that you will have success following these same ideas.
Unfortunately, some of the most effective methods of direct sales marketing also take the most time. However, these are all ideas that I have used to achieve great success
postcards to friends / -. One of the easiest and most productive marketing concepts to find a core group of friends and business contacts. Make a list of 100 people who might be interested in a new business venture then send a quick postcard to each individual. At first, you’re not trying to sell something, you just want to let everyone know that you started a new business. Then, when you come in contact with these people in the coming weeks you can follow. Ask “postcards did last week?” is a great way to follow up without sounding pushy
Flyers -. Maybe you’ve seen the brochures or flyers at the local supermarket or retail store. Most of these advertising vehicles or other items for sale. But, I’ve had some success by creating flyers with tear-off “discount” stickers that can be used when booking one of my party. For example, to create a pilot with 10 tear-off tabs offer 10% on the purchase of any item. Many are attracted by these discount offers
business cards -. There are still some situations where handing out business cards can be a great way to improve your business. If you’re like most people you probably meet a lot of people this week that you are unfamiliar. Waiters and waitresses, retail store workers, fast food workers and other people in a similar job responsibilities are an excellent source for both business leads and potential recruitment efforts. Why are these people so much ways?
1. A business – These people often come into contact with thousands of people during the day. If you were able to strike up a friendship, you might be able to use your new friend as a potential recruiting tool for your business. Have him or her hand out business cards to customers that they have friendly with. Or just put a table-top card holder next to the file and let customers help themselves.
2. Appointment – Many in the food and retail industry enjoy working with people and are often looking for ways to make some extra money. This is because, unfortunately, the recovery rate for their service games rarely amount of work and responsibility. Suggest that the person calling you to discuss how they could increase their monthly income or even replace an existing job.
Remember that everyone you come in contact with a potential client or hire. Hand out business cards as if they were aimed at the future development and selling opportunities with your confidence. In no time, your phone will be ringing off the hook with interested people.
As you can see, it takes time to build a profitable marketing plan. However, by using the methods that I have provided, I’m sure you will have a successful direct sales business in no time.
