Do you use home parties to increase your sales and build a team of great representatives that gives you residual income? Awesome! Would you like to be able to sell and recruit more? Take a look at these five tips that will grow your business even further.

Here are the five best ways to plan your home party and get the maximum possible sales:

1. Create two Wish Lists:

The first wish list you create is with your Hostess. This helps her to set goals for the party and she will work harder because she knows exactly what she wants and what she needs to do to get it.
The second wish list is the one that the guests fill out and you keep. This makes the selling process easier because you already have of list of things they like, plus you can call them back a couple of weeks after the party, see how they are liking the products they received and suggest further purchases based on their wish list, increasing your overall sales.

2. Give Your Hostess Instructions:

Not everybody is a natural hostess and not everybody is organized. Give clear, simple to understand instructions and contact her with reminders of what to do up to the time of the party. Don’t just through a bunch of stuff in her lap and expect her to have a great show. You can also do things like offer to mail out the invitations for her, or help her create a Facebook event. All these things will make the show more successful.

3. Serve Food Before The Party Begins:Tweet This

The reason for this is simple. You don’t want everyone distracted with eating when they should be shopping. If you serve the food at the end (especially if it is in a different room), everyone will move to the food and away from your products and you will get less sales.

4. When Taking Orders Let Everyone Mill Around:

Don’t take orders privately. Do it at the table with everyone watching. As people ask questions you can answer them for everyone and you will be amazed at how other people will encourage the one placing the order to buy more.

5. K.I.S.S:

Keep It Short and Simple. Don’t make your presentation long and boring. People have so much on the go and the last thing they want to do at a party is listen to a long-winded presentation. Keep it to 30-45 minutes and incorporate interactive things like games and demonstrations.

Doing these five things will help you to have great home parties with happy hostesses and customers. Try them today.

“No. Try not. Do or do not. There is no try.”
Yoda, Star Wars

Was 2016 a year of change and challenges for you? Was it a rough year where you never seemed to win or was it a year where breakthrough finally came? For me 2016 was my breakthrough year, but if you have been with me for any length of time you know that 2014 and 2015 were hard years, but I am thankful for them.

Now you may be asking yourself, “How can she be thankful for those hard years?” The answer is simple. Those years prepared me and made me strong enough to BREAKTHROUGH in 2016. The only way a muscle grows to be able to handle incredible weight and have immense strength is by pushing it beyond its limits which causes damage. It is the process of healing that damage that causes the muscles to grow.

Does it hurt? Yes, for a short period but what you get afterwards is worth it. So, if you want 2017 to be the year of BREAKTHROUGH in your life and business, then you need to start with an important concept.

Are you wanting, waiting and wishing or are you devoted, determined and doing?

Like Yoda says, you either, “Do or do not. There is no try.” Tweet This

So many times, I think that we ‘want to want,’ instead of do and achieve. We love to want things, like going on a vacation or buying a new car or having the time freedom to enjoy our families but are we willing to DO anything about it.

So, you might be saying to me, “But you don’t understand. I have this, this and this, standing in my way. There is no way that I can build the business I want in 2017. I just can’t.” If that is what you believe then you won’t. Sorry if I offended you but the truth hurts sometimes.

If there was something that 2014, 2015 and 2016 have taught me it is this, “No obstacle can stay in my way for long, if I continue to grow my belief, always focus on the solution and never stop doing the actions for success.”

My challenge for you in 2017 is this, get rid of all the things that are holding you back and take immense action that will propel you forward to either breakthrough or to a greater level of success and I want to help you do that.

In the next two weeks, I am going to be sending you a series of blog posts on making 2017 your best year ever. We are going to look at six things:

Canadian Thanksgiving was just a few weeks ago and the US Thanksgiving is coming up and it got me thinking about the wild turkeys that live in my neighbourhood. Did you know that they are dumbest, smart bird I have ever known. During hunting season you can’t find them anywhere, and during the rest of the year they stand on the road and make YOU wait for them to move. You can honk, you can move forward slowly, but they won’t move until they want to, and there is never just one of them. I have been late for appointments waiting for Mom and all the young ones to cross the road.

So I decided to read up on them and I found some interesting parallels between them and running a MLM/ Network Marketing/Direct Sales business.

1. Wild turkeys thrive when they live in a protected area with an open field or space beside it. They forage in the open space for food, but can quickly get to cover when it is needed. For us that means that we need a place that we can go to when things get tough. You always go out and look for new people, build your team and your business, but have that place whether physically, mentally or spiritually where you can recharge and motivate yourself. Attacks in this business will come, and they can be on the outside or on the inside and you need to be prepared to guard yourself and combat those attacks when they come or you won’t be in this business for very long.

2. Wild Turkeys can roost and rest in trees. It gives them covering, protection and a unique perspective on the whole world around them. Do you take time to rest? Rest not only recharges your body but your brain as well and helps give you perspective on yourself and your business. I always know when I haven’t taken enough rest. Everything becomes harried and I can’t stop thinking about all the things I need to do and on and on it goes. When I take rest it allows my mind to settle and I actually get more things done.

3. Varied VocalizationsTweet This
Wild Turkeys can make many different sounds to communicate with other turkeys. The first time I heard the young ones I couldn’t figure out what kind of bird it was because it was so unique. In MLM you need to have many different ways to communicate so that you can draw as many people to your business as possible. Build you team locally, build it online, find ways to connect with people that you normally wouldn’t associate with. If you are only prospecting one way then you are missing out on a lot of business.

4. They Have Lots Of Different Food Sources.
Wild Turkeys will eat seeds, foliage, berries, bugs and small reptiles, which is probably why they like my backyard. It has all of them including the snakes (just little garter snakes no longer than my forearm and they don’t bite.) What food are you feeding your mind, soul and spirit? The most successful people are the ones with the biggest libraries. They are constantly learning and growing not only their skills, but more importantly in their capacity for success. Make it a goal to learn something about yourself each day and to grow as person and you will see more success.

5. Great Daytime Vision, Poor Night Time Vision
Turkeys can see better than people in the daytime, but not as well as us in the night. So how does that apply to us? Simple. Turkeys know their weaknesses and protect themselves accordingly. They go out to eat in the early morning when most other animals are a sleep and they sleep in trees at night when there enemies are awake. Pretty smart, huh? We all have weaknesses in our business. Things that we don’t do well or we just don’t really like to do. So instead on focusing all your time and energy trying to make your weaknesses stronger, why don’t you work your strengths, get results and pay someone to do the things you can’t. Instead of being frustrated you will feel liberated.
So there you have it. Probably never would of thought that you have something in common with turkeys did you?

So some of you might be thinking that this is going to be some new age if you dream it, it will happen posts and I can guarantee you that is not what this is. What I am going to teach is scientifically proven and can change your life.

I was reading a book on happiness that looked at it from a Scriptural and scientific view and it really changed how I saw some things, so I am going to take what I learned from that and apply it to our business and share it with you.

So here we go, the concept is this…

Our brains create chemical patterns based on how we think and over time it is almost like grooves are created to make a path of least resistance so that we think the same way over and over again. So if you are a positive person then it creates a positive path. If you are negative, then it creates a negative path. Then your brain does everything possible to make come true the path that you have chosen.

Tweet This

When I learned that it blew me away. I realized that I was creating my own failure by the path that I allowed my thoughts to create and then worse of all I would speak it out confirming to myself that what I thought was true. There is a scripture that says, “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” Now I know that some of you don’t believe in God, but look at the principle taught here. What we hear creates faith in that thing. So if we are thinking doubt, fear, failure and then speak it out, it creates faith that that thing is going to happen and then your brain does everything possible to make it come true.

I want you to stop right now and take a serious look at your thought life and the words that you speak about your business. If you are thinking and speaking that you can’t, you are not able, you are too stupid, you aren’t good looking enough, I am too tall, short, fat, thin. I am a woman, or black, Hispanic or any other cultural group. I am not smart enough, I didn’t finish high school, no one ever believed in me, then you are going to fail guaranteed.

I can tell you from experience that this is true. When I think those things and allow them to take control in my life I fail, but the opposite is also true, when I think positive thoughts, when I speak positively some how I am able to do and achieve things I never thought possible. I also believe that when you think and speak positively that you open up the doors for God to be able to move and do great things because you are not hindering Him by your words, so He gets to add super to my natural.

So if you are thinking negatively what can you do about it? Well, the first and best thing is to recognize it and decide to change it. The second thing you do is to become aware of what you are thinking. Believe it or not we have a constant string of thoughts going through our head and many times we are not even aware of what is going on.

Here is an exercise for you. Get a pen and notepad and every time you have a negative thought put a tick in a notebook. Do that for about an hour and see how many times you are thinking negatively. You will be surprised by the results.

Third, once you become aware, now comes the hard part. Retraining your brain to create new paths and the longer that you have been thinking negatively the harder it can be, because the groves that you have to fight are deeper. Every time that you have a negative thought you need to recognize it and then replace it with a positive one. So if you think to yourself, “I can’t do this.” Then automatically correct yourself and say, “What am I saying of course I can do this.” Even better is to say it out loud.

Of course I do that when no one else is around or otherwise people would think that I am crazy. Over time your brain will start to create positive paths and it will become easier to think that way and then miracle happens, you start to act the way you think and the results follow that.

Imagine you increasing your results dramatically. You are selling and recruiting more, more money is coming into your household budget relieving some of the stress, you are happier and your family is happier too because you help set the pace for your family.

This is something that is powerful and if you truly use it to your advantage it will change your life forever. I know that it has changed mine.

To a life filled with more and more success,

In my last blog post we talked about creating momentum in your business and what that means. We also looked at an example that shows how to build momentum with your recruiting and team building. Lots of people enjoyed the article, but I had a request from one of my faithful readers (thanks Daga) to show how that works in the sales side of the business. So today, here is part two.

So just for a quick review, here is one of the definitions that Webster’s Dictionary uses for momentum:

 “The strength or force that allows something to continue or to grow stronger or faster as time passes.”

 So how does that apply to your sales business? For me it applies two ways. The first is to get more customers and the second is to sell more to the customers that you already have. 

So Let’s Take A Look At How To Build Momentum And Have Your Customers Get Customers For You.

 Like everything else you need to start the process and do a lot of work ahead of time. If you are an awesome rep for your company and you provide great service it is easy to get your customers to promote you. I am not sure what the average numbers would be, but let’s say that 1 in 10 of your customers will bring you in five customers a year. So that’s 15 customers for every ten customers you get yourself.

So if you are doing the right actions and out there prospecting and adding new customers and then taking care of them, if you ask your customers for referrals or to share your materials around to get more business, THEY WILL DO IT. I can tell you it works because 25% of my customer base has come from referrals from my customers.

 I have gotten phone calls from people who got my book from a friend or family member who wanted to order products. I have customers ask me to drop off a brochure to a friend because they had talked to their friend and they wanted to order. All because I let them know that I could use the business.

 And then…

 I rewarded them for getting me that customer and guess what? They would get me other customers because they liked how I thanked them. 

Now How Do You Get Them To Buy More? Tweet This

Getting your customers to buy more is actually an easy process, but it is something that few people do because they don’t want to be seen as pushy and that is ask for it.

First of all, if you have a great relationship with your customers and you provide great service to them, they will trust you to make recommendations on products that you think they will like.

 Over the years I have had customers thank me for recommending products because they were thinking about trying it but wasn’t sure about it and by me telling them about it, they tried it and liked it. The ones that they didn’t like, I gave them their money back no questions asked.

 The best way to build momentum in your sales is to be selling consumable products that people use and come back for again and again. So the more products you get them on the more your sales increase exponentially because they will be ordering it several times a year.

 For example:

 1 Customer x One $25 product x Purchased 3 Times A Year = $75 In Sales Per Year

 1 Customer x Four $25 products x Purchased 3 Times A Year = $300 In Sales Per Year

 1 Customer x Ten $25 product x Purchased 3 Times A Year = $750 In Sales Per Year

 Here is the point. The more products you can get one customer on the less work that there is for you and the more that customer will be contacting you for their favourite products instead of you contacting them. Now just imagine what happens to your sales when you have 10, 20 or 50 customers purchasing 10 products each, three times a year. If you had 50 customers doing that you would have $37 500 in sales for the year.

 If your company does not have consumable products and you live in Canada and you are ready to switch then consider working with me and my company of over a thousand different consumable products for all members of the family. Click here to learn more. 

Using Technology To Streamline The Process

Now as you are doing this you will hit the point where there are two many customers and too much WORK to do to maintain them. That is where technology comes in. With today’s advanced in technology it makes it easier then ever to be able to promote your business to many people at the same time. For example:

– Create an email list with all your customers (with their permission of course) and email them reminders of when it is time to order and specials that are available. There are also some group texting apps out there where you do the same thing and send it to their phone.

– If your company has E-Brochures use them as much as possible to not only cut down on delivery times, but costs as well.

– If your company does it, have your orders shipped directly to the customers that live a little farther away saving you a lot of driving time.

– Use social media to promote your business and get customers instead of having to go out and find them. You can also use social media to promote specials you have going on and create some buzz about it.

 As you gain momentum it is always better to work smarter, not harder. What is the use of all this momentum if you are burnt out and never see your family? There are ways to sell more with the same amount of work, you just have to be creative and find them.

 When you combine both getting new customers and selling more to the customers that you already have you will have an awesome business where you are leveraging not only your own efforts but the efforts of others as well and that is a sweet place to be.

 To Your Success,

Kim Thompson-Pinder
