It is Time To Gather Your Network Marketing Team
It has been a rough stretch for nearly any type of business. None more so than Networking Marketing. Whether you call it MLM, Direct Sales or Network Marketing, the direct-to-consumer sales model has been in limbo. Social distancing, occupancy restrictions and the general atmosphere of caution have severely restrained your ability to provide training, support, and celebration of your sales team’s efforts. Not to mention, made it nearly impossible for your team to even sell to their customers. The movement back to normalization is well underway and your sales team should be no different. It’s time to start networking again!
Restarting Your Network Marketing Sales Team
If you have been fortunate enough to retain most of your network marketing team through these trying times, restarting will certainly be easier. If, however, you lost some folks all is not lost. First, let’s take a look at your current team. Are they still motivated by the products your firm offers? Have they taken other sales or employment opportunities and no longer have time to invest? Have you canvassed them to see what the overall attitude is about meetings, training, and generally “getting back out there” to sell? Perhaps just getting them all together is just what the doctor ordered to get that enthusiasm back? Starting team meetings back up is certainly called for. Communication is and has been key in Network Marketing, doing so in person is now critical. We all need and rely on each other so let’s get together.
What if you have lost team members? Well, there may be good news there also. Due to the business & social challenges of late, many folks are still out of work or on reduced hours. Those folks need to make money. Since so many in the customer service industry have been hit hard, recruiting news sales associates should be easier than in the past. You just need to reach those people and offer them the opportunity and guidance to succeed with your company. Perhaps Network Marketing is just what they need to get back on their feet.
3 Ideas for Safe Network Marketing Meeting, Training & Sales
Your Network Marketing team may or may not be itching to get back into the sales action. It is up to you to motivate and assure them that the time is now for getting back to work. With that said, here are several tips to help you decide just how to do that.
#1. Find out how they feel.
Talk to your team. Ask them how they feel about getting together and hitting the streets to sell. Network Marketing is all about meeting people. Some may and some may not, you will have to respect their wishes and adjust.
#2. Get your team together in a safe place.
Now is not the time to meet in someone’s living room or the local restaurant. Seek out a venue that offers privacy, limited exposure and allows for the social distancing needed to remain safe.
#3. Make Network Marketing Fun Again
You may have to fight fear. Fear of being in close proximity to other people. The unease is inherent in direct sales to the public. Fear of the unknown. The best way we know to overcome fear is to face it. Face it with fun, games, friendship, and training. Your first team meeting could simply be a party. Fun, food, and games mixed in with a little business and team building.
