Direct Sales Consultants Go To Meetings!

Make Connections At Direct Sales Business Meetings

Direct sales is an ideal career for those looking for full-time opportunities or a secondary income source. Although these economic times present multiple challenges, it is satisfying to be able to sell and promote a product you love and believe in. Keep in mind that each and every business meeting event is an opportunity to not only sell a product or promote a service, but to network with like-minded individuals who may be interested in enjoying a career as a consultant as well.  Creating a great sales meeting can sometimes be as simple as a good team meeting theme.

Team Training Meetings Are Important!

The old saying that ‘time means money’ is completely true when coordinating a team training meeting. This means that every moment of the event at all of your meetings offers an opportunity to increase revenue potential. Because you may be busy providing a demonstration or answering questions, it is important to designate a door person. The door person would ideally be the host and her or his job will be to ensure that each guest signs the guestbook. The guestbook or sign in sheet should have space for each guest to write their name, phone number and email address. There should also be a space where guests can indicate if they would be interested in hosting their own event or receiving information about becoming a consultant themselves. Prior to the close of the event, time should be set aside for you to make a personal connection with those who have indicated interest in a career in direct sales. People like to feel valued, and speaking with them briefly will give you an opportunity to answer any initial questions or concerns they may have.

The job of a team leader or consultant does not start at the beginning of the event, but rather when planning and preparing for it. Every party should come complete with a brief written description. For example, if planning a party with 12 attendees, a reasonable goal would be to make a connection with three attendees who are prospective consultants. A plan to accomplish the goal could be to open the party with a brief questionnaire to help determine interest. People are more likely to enter a business relationship with someone who appears to be enjoying what they do. Keep in mind that success is not just about working hard, but is also about displaying a positive attitude. Having a winning attitude in a direct sales business means that you will look at every party as an opportunity to maximize the success of your business.
