When you first join a company it can be overwhelming to get familiar with the company and launch your business. Hopefully you have a strong and supportive sponsor to lead you along the way but there are number of things that you can do to get off to a strong start.
1.HOST YOUR LAUNCH PARTY!
Pick a date and send out your invites! This is the fastest way to grow your business. Despite what you might be thinking, this isn’t about sales! Sure you would like to hit the sales running but more importantly you want to get BOOKINGS! That’s how your business will grow so your goal should be 3 bookings for every party.Your launch party is also the perfect place to find your first team member! This is WAY more fun with a partner and they’ll be thanking you in a few months for sure!!
2.ANNOUNCE YOUR BUSINESS ON FACEBOOK
You will want to let your friends know that you’ve partnered with your company! You can say something like, “I’m officially a _____ Independent Consultant!!! If you are not familiar with _______–you need to check them out! I have fallen in love (obviously) and (something you love about your products)
“Use the link below to find my catalog”
You can also:
– ask them to check out your webpage and post a link
-post a photo of you using your product
– say, “Look what I am doing” and post a photo of your product
3.Set Up Your Sample Request Form
Getting your product in people’s hands is by far the best way to make the ladies fall in love.
4.Start your Companies Training
Whatever training your company has available dive in! Soak it all in and apply the tools that you learn. For example Jamberry offers JamU (Jamberry University) that has great lessons for new consultants and tons of information and updated training for all consultants.
5.CREATE YOUR FACEBOOK BUSINESS PAGE
This step is optional, as you don’t HAVE to have one but in this age of social media advertisement, it’s a good idea to use it to your advantage!
Here is how to get it set up.
1. Up by your notifications, to the right of the world icon and the little lock is the drop down arrow. Click on that.
2. Then click on ‘Create a page’.
3. Follow the steps to create your page.
4. Download and add one of the ‘Compliant’ banners to give it a professional look
5.Invite your friends it ‘like’ your page. There is a little button on the bottom right corner of your banner with three circles in a row. Click on that and them choose the ‘invite friends’ option.
Then start posting away!! There are ways to schedule posts out for the week also so ask your sponsor or Team Manager how to do that if you want to take advantage.
6.BOOK 6 PARTIES IN THE NEXT 30 DAYS
Say what?! I know that sounds like A LOT of parties but I want that to be your goal – they can be a mixture of Facebook parties and in-home parties but I want your goal to be 6. Parties are how you are going to find your customers, new team members, and future hostesses so get those on your calendar! Use this post to list the dates of your scheduled parties! How are you going to find these parties? By ASKING!
7. Explore your workstation.
Whatever the layout for your businesses back office/workstation/dashboard get familiar with it. You will likely find where to set up parties, place orders, policies, business updates etc
8.MAKE A SCHEDULE
So by now, you’re in the thick of your launch party, you’ve read through your business materials and you are ready to kick it into high gear. The first thing you’ll find is that working your business is a lot of fun! The problem is your family will think you’re having an affair with your business! It’s easy to get sidetracked on Facebook so it’s important you look at your schedule, your commitments, family time, etc. and find out when you can set aside time to work your business.
9.READ THE POLICIES AND PROCEDURES!!
I know, I know…this is the boring legal mumbo jumbo BUT it’s important that you stay compliant with these operating procedures. Most companies go to great lengths to have consistent branding to help you market your own businesses.
In this document you’ll find guidelines to what you can and cannot post in public places like your Facebook page and your Facebook Business page as well as about any and every other question you will have in your business. It’s important to know these details.
10.ORDER BUSINESS CARDS
Business cards are not mandatory but they are an essential marketing tool.
