Direct Sales Tips: Plant The Seed Of Opportunity

By Nicki Keohohou

Are you planting the seeds of opportunity so you can reap the rewards of success? Your sales presentation is only one of many chances you have to share the many benefits your company has to offer. Everyday conversations and interactions with others hold a goldmine of opportunity to share why you love your business. Set a goal to personalize each of these four phrases and then commit to use each one while you are out and about every day.

The Friendly Stranger

"You seem to be a real fun-loving person. Have you ever thought about going into business for yourself? You’d be fantastic!"

The Put-together Woman

"You have a knack for…(something sincere and related to your business opportunity). I would love to share how you can turn your talent for…(a skill they have that would help them be successful) into a business. I can’t believe I get paid to do what I already love to do."

The Life of the Party

"You are a fun person, Carol. Have you ever considered a career that pays you to have fun, party and make new friends? Is that something you could get excited about?"

The Opportunity Enthusiast

"I’m in the business of fun and…(the type of products you represent for example: cosmetics/beauty, jewelry/fashion, herbal supplements/health, etc.). I show women how to turn their love for people and…(type of product you represent) into a profitable business. Who do you know that might be interested in a fun and rewarding business?"

To get in the habit of “Planting The Seed Of Opportunity”, approach 3 different people each day for the next week and record the outcome. Before you know it you will be growing your business no matter where you are or what you do.
