Have you ever thought about HOW your sales force is marketing your brand and products? How are they identifying their target market? How are they selling? The last thing you want is to leave your distributors completely ill-equipped for the real world of MLM sales.
Unfortunately, MLMs or direct sales opportunities can often have a polarizing effect in a neighborhood, social circle, or extended family. Distributors are confined to these tight inner circles to make their sales or find new recruits, and they put pressure on their loved ones and friends to “support” their new business venture. Every friend is now a prospect. Every family member a potential downline.
We’ve all seen it happen. Close friendships can become compromised, family holiday dinners become tense, and “friends” start getting blocked on Facebook.
Let’s break it down. Here are the reasons you’re currently ruining your distributors’ social lives:
You limit their market
When a local neighborhood is all a distributor has as his market, you’re ultimately in for trouble. His market will quickly be saturated, and all his new recruits will be limited to the small pool of people who have already said “no” to three other distributors. Think about this: if the success of your sales force is dependent upon their access to fresh, warm prospects and new recruits, how could they ever succeed in their isolated local markets?
You don’t give them tools
When a distributor doesn’t have marketing tools that come from the top, she’ll improvise. She may be tempted to exaggerate some claims in order to sell more products or recruit her friends. This sets everyone up for failure! When the truth comes out, you’ll have some very unhappy customers who feel deceived by your brand.
You aren’t training them
The beautiful thing about direct sales and MLM opportunities is that successful distributors don’t have to have a background in sales. But that doesn’t mean they don’t need to be trained. In fact, precisely because most of your distributors don’t have a background in sales, they should be taught how to effectively market and sell your products, and how to recruit new distributors. Don’t leave it up to their uplines to train them! This training needs to come from YOU.
You don’t give them support
Your sales force needs access to the company they represent. If you’re not providing reliable and easily accessible Customer Support to your distributors and customers, you will lose sales!
