Creating a Direct Sales Slam Dunk
There are really Four basic Skills to Create a SLAM Dunk in Your Direct Sales Business.
Success in Network Marketing involves simple skills that can be learned.
I call it a Slam Dunk in your network marketing business. And that stand for Scheduling, Language, Attitude and Marketing.
S – Scheduling. What’s on the calendar gets done. It just does. IF you want to know how you are doing in your business, a good place to start to see what actions you’ve been taking are to look at your calendar.
We come in with an employee mindset and so taking charge of our calendar can be a challenge.
What’s slotted in there on your calendar? How many new contacts did you make? Appointments did you complete? Follow ups?
L – Language – what you say DOES make a difference. Use good success language. Don’t be salesy. Know your words and language for every step of the way. Never leave it to chance. And, practice drill and rehearse, too. Record yourself and then throw it away. But do this over and over so you can listen to how it sounds, and how it comes across. This will teach you so much!
A – Attitude. We can only control a few things in our business and one of the most important is our attitude. We don’t control who takes the time to view our business, try our products, join our team or actually work the business. But, we can control our action steps and the attitude we have around the whole process.
Visual Reminders, Morning Routine, Affirmations – these are all key pieces to keeping our attitude in check. Have you heard my story about my daughter’s hair holder and how I used it to snap my wrist and snap me into positivity? IT works. Listen and hear!
What are those things that will give you the positive reinforcement that you need? Put them into place. Find what fits for you. Maybe it’s sticky notes.
M – Marketing. When people say they have no one to talk to, it’s because they don’t know marketing.
We have offline and online methods of team building. Offline, people are everywhere and as long as you know how to build rapport, and then what to say, you’ll be great.
Active and Passive is what we do online.
Passive marketing is like this – the podcast, blog posts, periscope, Facebook live and so on.
Active marketing is that direct contact we make with others.
People are everywhere, online and offline.
THAT is the Slam Dunk in your business. Incorporate it each day and watch your business grow.
And, if you stuck around through the whole recording, you got a taste of Facebook Ads and your business page! More to come on that topic soon!
