After having been successfully involved in direct sales and the home party plan business for many years, I am often asked how I have been able to keep my home party business alive and thriving all that time. Several years ago during a direct sales training I put together an acronym with 5 actions you should take each week to ensure you create a successful direct sales business. I call it 5 Alive & Thrive!
These five steps and principles will help you be more successful in your direct sales or home party plan business. They will also help you see consistent results and consistent income from your business.
Here are the 5 actions you can take each week to keep your direct sales business alive and thriving!
–A – Ask @ least 10 new people to host a party! (@ a party, or via dating calls, customer care calls, out & about, invite them to your team meetings & events)
–L – Look for new places to leave business cards, hang up fliers, place lead generation boxes, set up for vendor events… Market your business everywhere! Leave a paper trail (but don’t litter).
–I – Invite @ least 10 new people to join your team! (@ a party, or via recruiting calls, customer care calls, out & about, invite them to your company’s opportunity events & webinars)
–V – Visit with your success line! Contact your upline / manager / director for a weekly encouragement, accountability & goal setting session!
–E – Educate & empower yourself by attending any team, company or related direct sales success meetings or training calls or webinars being held each week or listen / watch recordings from past team, company or other direct sales training calls or webinars. Also read books and newsletters from business, direct sales and success coaches.
Remember, direct sales is all about marketing and connecting with customers and potential customers, hosts and team recruits. You will always get back exactly what you put into your business. If you want to see bigger, better and more consistent results, then talk to more people and work on a consistent basis. Your success is up to you!
