Direct Sales Articles and Tips - Build a Thriving Team

How to build a thriving direct sales team

Direct Sales is an ideal business for many people. You don't need to create or store the product.

The company does all that for you. They probably even give you proven strategies for selling the product.

It is also possible to increase your income by building a strong direct sales team.

You earn a commission on the product they sale, so your income can continue to grow without you selling more or working harder than you already are.

However, many direct sales teams struggle to perform. Members might be excited when they sign up, but their enthusiasm soon fades. They get distracted by other income-making opportunities or family concerns. Or maybe they decide that direct sales isn't for them after all.

When this happens, not only are you not making as much money as you could. You are also wasting your time recruiting and training team members. Here are some suggestions for building a thriving direct sales team.

Get to know the people you're recruiting and let them get to know you. Introduce yourself, talk about your likes and dislikes, and find out about theirs too. It's important that you and your team know each other as people before you decide to work together. Make your worth ethic and your expectations clear. That way they will no right from the start who they're dealing with and can make an informed decision as to whether they want to join you or not.

Host in person meetings or online chats. If your team members are located locally, host regular meetings where they can get together, learn from each other and feel connected to the team. If your team is located across the country or state, try hosting an online chat instead. That can go a long way to keeping your team members motivated and focused on their own businesses.

Recognize their efforts. You might start contests or challenges, or offer a prize for reaching a goal. By recognizing their goals, you will be empowering your members to continue working. Whatever sort of recognition you offer, knowing that someone noticed can be a big confidence booster to the recipient. Others will be motivated as well by seeing someone succeed and be recognized for it.

Communicate with them regularly. This is perhaps the biggest key to creating a thriving direct sales team. Make yourself available to them regularly. Depending on your team members' needs, it might be through email, phone calls, or some other form of communication. This will strengthen your relationship with them and alert you to any problems. Talk about things not-related to business as well. If they know you're available and willing to listen, they will talk to you about issues before they become problems. You can also help them recognize opportunities for growth.

Building a thriving direct sales team will ensure your direct sales business remains profitable for years to come. By taking the time to choose your members carefully, recognize their efforts and communicate with them, you and your team members can all enjoy the success you desire.
