You’ve just signed up with a direct sales company and you may be wondering, what next? Besides learning as much as you can about social media marketing and the best way to brand yourself, you’ll need some tools to go with your company starter kit and inventory. I’m here to provide you with the ultimate list of things you will need and recommending a direct sellers start up kit!
Organization & Scheduling
Day Designer Planner: Perfect for direct sellers who love to be organized! Not sure if you want to commit to a planner just yet? Try out their free daily planner download available on their site and be sure to check out all the pretty new designs!
CinchShare: I talk a lot about CinchShare and just how I use it to grow my direct sales business online. It really is the best social media scheduling platform available. Take one day a month and schedule out your engagement posts for your Facebook Groups, Facebook Pages, and even schedule entire Facebook Parties!
Direct Sales Party Training
Imagine you started off direct sales Facebook parties on the right foot and your sales and future bookings were booming from the start! Investing in yourself makes a huge difference in the long run.
Before even thinking about a launch party, take a look at Brenda Ster’s Epic Live Facebook Party training. Step by step, she walks you through how to prep your hostess, how to curate pre-party posts, what type of posts to do throughout the length of a Facebook party, and how to get future hostesses and most importantly, sales!
When you start an at-home business, there are a lot of basic mailing supplies you will need to keep on hand.
Thank You Cards: This box of thank you cards will work for any direct sales brand. Sometimes it’s fun to stay true to your own branding. For example, clothing direct sellers may want to go with a unicorn themed thank you card, or makeup direct sellers may love to send these cards. There are so many choices!
Mailers: To protect your direct sales products in the mail, bubble mailer pouches are perfect! I prefer mailers that are light and bright like these. They will work with any brand and are sure to put a smile on a customer’s face!
Washi Tape: I LOVE washi tape! I even wrote an entire blog post about it! This selection is perfect for starting out. Pretty, delicate, and sparkly…3 of my favorite things!
I have a lot of motivational book recommendations in my Direct Sellers Toolbox. But, these 2 books (HERE and HERE) are by far my favorite. Both by the same author and good for anyone looking for inspiration and motivation to rock a direct sales business.
So, are you ready to rock your new direct sales adventure?
