Make a Plan to Promote and You Will

When do you plan to promote?

When you treat your business with professionalism you will get professional results.

You must make a PLAN if you want to promote!!

A Plan to Promote

The key word here is PLAN!

All successful businesses plan for their goals and work at home distributors should be no different!

This content is included in the Complete Program On How To Do Direct Sales.

In the corporate world companies plan annually and then review their plan and their progress quarterly.

All successful businesses have a strategic plan for success that includes:

An Action & Outcome-Based Marketing Plan:

What does it take to promote to the next level? Include in your business plan the steps necessary to make that happen!

For example, since you plan to promote you must regularly bring in new distributors.

Your action-based marketing plan should include recruiting: recruit two new distributors per month means you must have four distributor interviews, means you must talk to ten people per month about the opp, means you have 12 recruiting packets prepared each month! Is it in your marketing plan?!

Check out this article for examples on how to make an action-based direct sales marketing plan.

A Proactive Annual Calendar Agenda:

What activities do you perform regularly and which ones must be added to your agenda when you promote? Plan your year—when you work on the newsletter, when you have team meetings, what holidays or problems should you train your team to deal with proactively?

A leader who plans their annual calendar will step up more quickly than one who does not.

Here you can read more about creating an annual calendar planning guide and download a template.

A Plan For Customer Relationship Management:

Direct sales is a service-based industry. You cannot willy-nilly manage your client base and expect to take on more responsibilities as a leader. After all, your team members are customers too!

How do you manage your customer care? What is your team customer care technique? Customer management is key to creating a massive organization without being overwhelmed!! Since you plan to promote, it is essential that you manage your customer care effectively before your workload increases!

Learn more about customer management techniques.

A marketing plan maps out your goals and your course of action.

A calendar for the year allows you to proactively market and work your business.

Sales is service and when you are in the service industry you have a customer relationship management technique!

Incorporate these into your plan to promote and you WILL!
