Proven advice on Success in Direct Sales – by an Expert!
So many people work in an office. Every day they see the same people and usual social pleasantries are exchanged, “How are you? “What about this weather?” “Did you hear the news this morning?”
We skim across the surface of our lives as we don’t have a deeper personal relationship with the people we work with. We don’t talk about anything that personally affects us and it would be prying to dig into the things that really matter for others.
A sick mum can be talked about but the worry that something is not working with a relationship, or with a child, it’s often too much, we need to keep those things private.
In a work relationship there is always the worry that your information will be betrayed. I don’t understand why people in organizations are so political and so difficult to work with. Office politics means you always have the feeling that you’d better watch your back.
It’s a hard way to live.
There is another way to work. The basic principles are different and the outcomes can be very different.
If you can move into a work environment where your success is not threatening other people, where the Leadership is trying to help you because your success is their success, where people who perceive themselves as being beneath you in the organization are not trying to pull you down but are trying to get themselves higher and, in the process are helping you do better.
It sounds a bit like a fairyland but it is the way that direct sales, Multi Level Marketing ( MLM ), or Network Marketing works if it’s done properly.
When you start with a company that has an MLM style Royalty payment you do so because you like the company, believe in the products but, most importantly, you have someone that you are happy to work with. YOU get to choose who it is you work with.
You will be doing direct sales and talking with customers and prospects. It’s a bit hard to get around the fact that the direct sale industry means you have to sell things. If you don’t want to be involved in sales and talking with people then this is not the industry for you. If, on the other hand, you like personal contact, like talking with people, and get pleasure out of seeing people getting benefits from your products then maybe you should take a good hard look at the direct sales industry.
Many of the big direct sale companies who distribute their products through independent distributors pay a good commission on personal sales. That can often be up to 50% because the company is not carrying the overheads of traditional companies and the company is not paying a retainer or a wage to sales staff. The company only pays on production so it can be generous in paying a profit share to you for each product you sell. If you are good at what you do then this sort of company structure can be very lucrative.
The other aspect of this sort of business is that strong interpersonal relationships are formed. As you build your own skills you are encouraged to put together a team of your own. You learn what to do and you teach it to your own people. Once they establish the skills then they can make some money for themselves and gather other people to work with them. Each member of your team will be helped to build their own teams, and so it goes, until you have a huge network of people you are working with all round the world.
Obviously this is a good way to make money but it goes deeper than that. You hear the “old timers” talking, and see in films, about how people who have been serving overseas together in the armed forces form deep friendships. They can be out of contact for years and then, when they meet again, the time falls away and the experiences are as fresh as if they happened yesterday.
I have pondered on this. My belief is that this is a part of a life changing experience.
When there is something that happens in your life that brings fundamental change and takes your life in a completely new direction then you do not forget it. The people who go through the experience with you will always be special to you.
In the direct sales industry you can take someone who is trapped in a job, hating the work, frustrated with life in general, and show them new ideas, give them new hope. You can offer an opportunity for them to take control of their lives and to be free to choose the life they dream to live. If you work with them through this time then deep bonds will be formed that can last for the rest of your lives.
Working in this manner can make you a lot of money. That’s great. It can also make you a lot of friends, people who have improved their lives immensely and who will always remember that you helped them to get started, and you helped them when it all new and confusing.
Direct sales is a method of business you but it can be about lifestyle and people and living a life that you enjoy.
To find the sort of people you can expect to share great experiences with, and who have shown good leadership skills in building their own and their team businesses, simply look for people who have successfully been running their Direct Sales business for ten years or more. Because if they have been successful, and their team has stuck by them for all these years, they must be doing something right!
