When I joined my direct sales company, it was my first experience in the world of direct sales. Just like learning a new language, there were new terms I needed to learn, products I needed to become familiar with, and apps that I needed on a daily basis. I’ve tried many things to grow my direct sales business and team and I’ve written down the top must have apps for direct sellers.
Photofy & Wordswag & Canva
With much of direct sales happening online and across social media platforms, you need clear, visually appealing graphics to go along with your awesome product descriptions. My two favorite apps are Photofy and Wordswag. Both are easy to use and include a library of free (and paid) images to use as a backdrop for text, images, and other graphics. Also, Canva, my favorite website to create original graphics has an app! Check it out!
This handy app is the place I keep all of my hostess coaching scripts, frequently used hashtag lists, and customer notes as well. You are able to easily organize your thoughts in notebooks and if you have a team, it is handy to share your notes with other teammates. You can access the information from any device and by maintaining lists and saving websites to reference for a later date, I find my notes are organized and readily available when I need them.
I love Planoly so much, I wrote an entire blog post about it! To succeed in your direct sales business using Instagram, it’s important to post consistently. 1 time a day or even 3 times a day, it is sometimes difficult (and overwhelming) keeping up with an Instagram schedule! Planoly is an app and desktop website that helps to schedule, visualize, and plan your Instagram feed.
I saved this must have app for last as it technically is not an app but, it is easily placed on your phone home screen as a shortcut. CinchShare is the total package. Direct sellers do SO much when it comes to social media management. Facebook pages, groups, parties, and Pinterest posts, it is critical to use a platform that can schedule and automate posts. I use CinchShare to plan out my Facebook business page posts and set up my Facebook parties within 10 minutes. Once you have the templates created for one party, a little tweaking, and your next party is set! Want to know more? Head over to my Why I Use CinchShare post!
As you get started in the world of direct sales, there are so many different ways to achieve the same result. These top must have apps for direct sellers are the ones that I have found to help me work smarter, not harder, and boost my productivity and sales. I’d love to know what apps you use the most!
