Share Some of Your Tips

Hi All –

How about if we start a post of sharing some of our best business tips?

Why don’t we tell a little bit about ourselves and our businesses?

Good way to start and get to know each other!!

I’ll start –

My name is Stephanie Hay and I live in Massachusetts.  I have been in direct sales for over 20 years.  I started with Tupperware in the mid 80s, BeautiControl in the early 90s, PartyLite, Creative Memories and NuSkin.  I am currently with Tastefully Simple and have been with them for over 6 years.

One of my tips is to talk to everyone and to always keep catalogs with you.  I have a catalog bag with a clear pocket on the outside that I carry with me at most times — great way to advertise your business.  I also have commercial plates and have advertising on my windows.  I get a decent amount of calls from my window decals.

I also leave business cards under my rear window wiper and find that people take my business cards from there also.  I have had a magnet holding business cards in the past and that worked also. 

I also make my own business card magnets by laminating them and them trimming and putting on a business card magnet.  I give everyone a business card magnet.  I find that the laminating gives it a more professional look and wasn’t very expensive when I bought the laminator.  I paid about $30 or so for it a few years ago and has been a very good investment.

Looking forward to sharing info and getting to know each other.

Have a great weekend!!

Stephanie Hay

Hello Stephanie:

I’m new to the site but I’ll have to check your blog often. I’m just starting in direct sales and I hope that my career has the longevity that your has.

so far, I’ve had some discouraging days but i try to remind myself that I’m in this for the long-term. It isn’t a get rich scheme. It’s a “stay” financial independent scheme.

Looking forward to sharing ideas

Sherry –

Congrats on starting your new business. Would love to hear about what you do!!!

I think one of the things that helps with drect sales is “loving” the product that you sell. It helps if your product is consumable too!!

I love that I am able to set my own schedule and work around my family and my own activities.
