Amie's Jewels of Wisdom

Are you taking advantage of all that is available to you as a Consultant in today's world of direct sales? We are seeing that the people most likely to succeed are those who use all of the available marketing tools. One of those most powerful tools, is social media. Using social media to build your business isn’t about just selling  products to friends and family, you also become the influencer, one who shares about products they LOVE and use themselves.  

In order to be successful and build a growing business make sure you have the basics strategies in place. 

Establish Yourself as a Brand

If you’ve made a few sales through your personal Facebook page, you’re ahead of the game! BUT, if you keep pushing people to buy you then risk annoying friends and family. Instead, make a “Page”, a “Business Page” which describes, targets and profiles specifically for your business. Remember the saying - “Treat your business like a business and get paid like a business, treat your business like a hobby and that is how you will be paid”. 

Answer the Question “Why Me?”

Next, make a list of what makes you unique as well as what makes your business page unique.  The love of your products is what qualifies you to be an influencer that then promotes your products – this will become the basis that establishes you and your personal brand.  What do you offer that others don’t? ie. Local delivery, family-friendly testimonies, giveaways, specials, adding them to a VIP group. Finally, consider what it is that you love about products you’re sharing. Keep all of this in mind every time you post! 

Give More Than You Ask

Successful selling is about more than asking people to buy product. Social marketing now gives you an opportunity to give potential customers something before you ever ask for the sale. Posting on a business page is an excellent way to make your marketing conversations all about the customers. Your posts should always be from a teaching,  informing, problem solving, announcements or brand recognition that gives your customers a reason to keep coming back to your page. 

Never Stop Creating Content

Whether it’s blog posts or Facebook content, potential customers already in your network need to be reminded that you’re there to help and support them with the products you sell. Even better, the content you create will attract new customers via search. Follow the 80/20 rule when it comes to content – 80% of your posts should be informative or entertaining and 20% (or less) should be about making “the sale”. 

Keep the Conversation Going

Social media networks use algorithms to determine what users do and do not see, and most of these networks reward pages and users with high engagement by showing their posts to more people. You can promote engagement on your social profiles by asking questions, asking followers for tips, resharing users’ own posts, hosting online events and giving your most active followers recognition. Custom hashtags are a great way to keep on top of what your fans are posting about you. 

Don’t Be Impatient

Making a few quick and easy sales may convince you that the dollars will keep rolling in but building a direct sales business is like building any other business. Take the time to cultivate relationships in order to build a business with repeat customer sales. Let customers come to you instead of constantly pushing your message. In due time, you’ll begin to see amazing results.
