Top 5 Direct Selling Tips

When you first start out your business in Direct Selling it can seem a daunting task, even for an experienced sales person the idea of starting a new business can be scary. The best way to combat the initial worries and fears is to be prepared. So before you go to the next event why not just run over our top selling tips?

1. Set yourself a goal

Having a clear goal will help you become focused and motivated. The goal can be a sales goal for your whole year or maybe it’s just a goal for one event, whatever it is make sure it is clear in your mind and in all your approaches to your work. When setting a goal it is important that is isn’t unattainable, however it should be challenging enough to push you to work that bit harder.

2. Don’t fear failure

Unfortunately in business failure is always a risk. Don’t let a “no” knock you back, if something doesn’t work simply say to yourself “That didn’t work and now I am wiser and stronger in my future decisions and experiences.” Think if you only ever received “yes” how would you ever grown and improve?

3. Time Management

As much as some of us would love to be able to work 24 hours a day, you can’t! Managing your time effectively will mean you can as productive as possible and still have plenty of time to relax and spend with family and friends. Create a schedule and block in time for work but equally block in time to relax and have to yourself away from work. One great advantage of working in direct selling is you can work when you are most productive maybe you are an early bird and work well at 6am or maybe you at your peak at 11pm, work when suits you best!

4. Be comfortable and confident

A customer will be able to tell if you aren’t confident in a product you are selling and they may lose confidence. The best way to have confidence is to sell products you believe in and are knowledgeable about. Take the time before you start selling to really get to know your products, or at least know where to direct any questions a customer may have to.

5. Follow up

Maybe you’ve had a conversation with someone about Nikken products and you’ve left them with a leaflet, great but what next? Follow it up! If left to their own devices in 2 hours’ time they may have completely forgotten your conversation, but if in a few days you call them and talk to them again and get them to make a promise whether to watch a video or try a product then you are starting them on their journey to Nikken and they know you are there to help and support them!

Most of all enjoy your journey, being your own boss gives you the advantage to make your business work for you. Find a way to run your business that you are comfortable and you enjoy. No one wants to wake up in the morning dreading work, it’s time to make your life and your journey the way you want, it’s all in your control!

Do You Need More Money in May?

Do you need to earn more money in your business – quickly? Would it help you to get an extra couple of hundred euro’s in your May commissions? You can get it if you want it. Here is how and most importantly, here is why.

There is always a reason behind each of the business promotions that Nikken puts on – and it is always centred on helping you to achieve more. In the month of April we are offering pack bonuses for all enrollers of people who join in the month of April and purchase a Vital Pack. These bonuses will be paid out in May commissions – €40 for a Day Pack, €50 for an Environment Pack and €60 for a Night Pack. The more people you sponsor who purchase a Vital Pack in April – the more you can earn in May!

So, why are we offering this special incentive? Firstly, during the month of March we saw a lot of Product Launch events where a large number of you brought guests. As the saying goes – “the fortune is in the follow up”. This special offer give you added incentive to get back to your guests and encourage them to join – with a Vital Pack of course 🙂

There is another reason too! It is proven that when people join “right” they have a higher chance of succeeding later. Starting right includes purchasing a Vital Pack straight away. It helps to establish commitment. It encourages the Enroller to talk about the business opportunity too. It also helps the discussion on the new Enrolees goals and desires for success. What do they want with Nikken, when by? How can I as the Enroller help? One of the ways to help is to ensure they purchase a Vital Pack! It offers them exposure to a range of products at a great price and encourages them to “Nikkenise” their homes. This helps for when they are meeting people or talking to others in their home environment and it eases the sense of having to sell something. Now, with product experience they can promote and recommend instead. That is much more comfortable.

In addition to the above two reasons, the Vital Packs have great point value and if you and your team are striving to rank advance this month – this incentive will be sure to help. The key is to get the people in your group working on it too. It only takes half a dozen people in a group maximising this promotion and you can see your volume go way up. Remember, more points from product sold means more income.

Please be sure to spread the message about this month’s special offer. Don’t just show people what they can earn – let them know the reasons why they will earn it. All the reasons why are centred on helping you, your team or your new enrolees the chance to do better and become more.
