Productivity Hacks for Direct Sales
How can I be more productive in my day and in my direct sales business? What things should I be focused on each day? What are the best books for productivity in Direct Sales?
I have read dozens and dozens of books, and maybe I can give a summary because as good as ANY book is, each of us kind of have to find our own WAY, of being productive, and our current life situation will dictate that.
A few things I have learned that work for me, personally, for life and Productivity Hacks For Direct Sales –
Start with your WHY – without that, nothing else matters.
This is the single biggest step that most people miss. I’m going to include why and vision all together here, because I believe they are closely related and if you have one, you can and should have the other.
Have a recipe for a big life. WHAT do you want from your life? This is the start of crafting your vision. And, become a huge part of your why.
Create your ideal life in your mind. Write down everything you want.
Income, home, where you live, lifestyle, other material things, relationships, giving and contribution, travel experiences.
This is the first step in giving yourself the direction you need to go.
Do more than just think it, though. Write it down. And then put that away somewhere that you remember and can come back to later. Ideally, make a copy of it and read it several times each day.
Revise and add to that list over time, as you and your business grow.
This is YOUR vision and YOUR why. There is no right or wrong and don’t get sucked into creating someone else’s vision if it’s not a fit for you.
Next, Use a REALISTIC To Do list each day. I do mean realistic. For most people, that list will include 2-3 most important income producing activities each day.
Prioritize that list, and get the most important things done first.
Pay attention to your own peak times and do the most important things during these times. I am a morning person so I schedule everything that really takes my energy, focus and BEST effort as early as possible. This is challenging because I also like to workout first thing. But, I have conditioned myself to work out in the afternoon when needed, and actually, this gives me more energy later in the day. If you are a night owl, then do your best stuff then.
Develop a plan of action and commit to it for at least 90 days. Example – offline networking – don’t go once and then quit. Be consistent for 90 days and then evaluate. Facebook parties/events – work like crazy and let go of fear for 90 days. Then evaluate and tweak as needed.
Start your blog and be consistent with it. Blogging is NOT dead and google still returns the biggest percentage of traffic and leads to websites and blogs.
Do social media in small time breaks when you can’t be doing anything else productive.
3 most important things in ANY day for your Direct Sales business – Reach out to XX number of new contacts each day – party or business. Follow up with previous contacts. Reach out to a customer or two each day.
I could speak all day on this, but focus on these things and you’ll find what works best for you.
There are many ways to find success in this business and everyone has obstacles and challenges. But, that’s just a test. Where there is a will, there is a way and obstacles and challenges are MEANT to be overcome!
In the next show, I will cover a typical day in my own business, encompassing online and offline activities, as well as my morning routine and affirmations for success.
