Here’s a Friday tip on social media with your direct sales business!
Whenever I have someone new who is interested in more information on the business, booking, or anything…I send them a TEXT first.
I made this picture at www.picmonkey.com. If you’re not using picmonkey, or something comparable, you should be! Visual content is the way of the future. And if you’re not on that social media train, you’re going to get left in the dust! Social media is what connects the dots with my home parties and hostesses in general. It’s more personal when someone I don’t know, gets a picture or a video of me. It’s truly transformed my business!
So the LINK I’m referring to in the picture is from www.issuu.com. Again, if you’re not using this, you’re not doing yourself, your customers, or your hostesses any favors. This site allows you to upload an entire PDF to their site. They take that PDF and make it a digital catalog. So my customers can click on a link that issuu gives me and view the entire catalog right from their phone. See for yourself! Here is my link to the Thirty-One Fall Catalog for my customers: http://issuu.com/buymybags/docs/fall_catalog/1
Issuu is also great for the opportunity brochure, monthly specials fliers, new consultant welcome packets, literally ANYTHING. You can have all these at your fingertips.
So I hope that helps! And if you don’t know how to use those sites, that’s an EXCUSE. Because I didn’t know how to use them when I first found them either. You know what I did? I researched “how to” videos on Youtube. You can have EXCUSES or RESULTS…but you can’t have BOTH 😉
Happy Friday ladies!! Do something great today!
