What Do You Do When Your Direct Sales Company Closes its Doors?

What Do You Do When Your Direct Sales Company Closes its Doors? By Holly Reisem Hanna

This month the popular direct sales company, Lia Sophia shut its doors after 28 years of being in business. It’s estimated that Lia Sophia employed more than 27,000 independent direct sales consultants who collectively sold more than $100 million worth of jewelry this past year.

This isn’t the first time that a direct sales company has abruptly closed its doors; but sadly, Lia Sophia’s consultants are now left with picking up the pieces during the busiest time of year.

If this scenario should happen to you or if you’re one of the 27,000+ Lia Sophia consultants, here are some steps to take to alleviate some of the stress and financial burden you’ve been thrown into.

Give Yourself Time to Grieve:

You’ve just lost your business and your income — it’s okay to give yourself some time to absorb the shock and reality of the situation. While it’s good to take a break, acknowledge your feelings, and prioritize self care during this time, don’t let the circumstances define you. When you fixate on the negative you perpetuate a cycle of destructive emotions that will only dig you deeper into a hole. If you feel like your sadness is becoming overwhelming, try surrounding yourself with positive people or talk to a healthcare professional to get you back on track. Also remember the basics, getting 8 hours of sleep, eating right, and exercising — these go along way in reducing stress! (more…)

Script Your Voicemail Message For More Call Backs!

Script Your Voicemail Message For More Call BacksBy Deb Bixler

Leaving a voicemail for a prospective customer and waiting for a callback is not the best recipe for direct sales success.

However, there are times, even in a cold calling scenario, when you will need to leave a voicemail for someone.

Having a few prepared voicemail scripts for those times when you need to leave a message will increase the possibility that the prospect will surprise you and call you back.

There are a few things you can do to create voicemail scripts that work.

Having prepared scripts at your disposal when making calls will increase your chances for success. Knowing what to say, and what not to say, in those prepared scripts will also boost your chances for callbacks.

1. Know The Reason For Your Call.

Sounds simple, but some people forget this fundamental part of the message. You have to leave a clear message with the reason for your call so the person receiving the message will be compelled to return the call. (more…)

Interview with Abbey Fatica – Working From Home as an Isagenix Independent Associate

Abbey FaticaTell us how you got involved with Isagenix. 

Two years ago, I was introduced to Isagenix by my friend Staci. I was looking for a way to get rid of the baby weight that I was holding onto from my third child. I was not interested in the business at the time because I had a busy online business and startup that I was working on but I loved the products and the changes they had made to my body.

Fast forward a year later after another pregnancy and birth of our fourth baby. I knew we were done having kids and it was high time to start taking care of myself and feeling comfortable in my own skin. I called Staci again and told her that I was ready to get started on the products for good this time, because I knew how amazing they were and how they made me feel so great! I was also in a place career wise where I was looking for a new opportunity, so I decided to take a look at the compensation plan. It was exactly what I was looking for: something that I could do part-time but make a full time salary, work from home, and be able to interact with other moms who wanted the same thing I did.

Nature Unleashed: Unprecedented Support for Brand Partners

Nature UnleashedThanks to Nature Unleashed for sponsoring today’s post.

For Joe, Darren, and Kimberly – Cofounders of Nature Unleashed, it isn’t enough to say they want to help people create a path toward financial fulfillment, they are intent on living that promise every day in their approach to direct sales and in the commitments they make to their Brand Partners.

According to Joe DeSantis, CEO of Nature Unleashed, the team knew right away that direct sales was the channel for bringing the Anolyte product line to market. The direct sales model allows for the development of relationships and the sharing of stories and experiences, a driving factor in how people learn about this type of product.

The Nature Unleashed Approach to Direct Sales

The philosophy behind the Nature Unleashed direct sales approach was developed after a lot of discussion around not only the compensation structure of the program, but also the interaction and support of Brand Partners. From the beginning, the team felt Nature Unleashed would not be a company that pays for just recruiting. Instead, product sales drive the revenue model. (more…)
