Are you finding it a struggle to think of ways of how to promote your direct sales business?
By knowing who to approach – who might be interested in allowing you to do a coffee morning for staff, lunchtime displays or a gift service, including promotional incentive items, for staff to purchase items for those closest to them – it will take the angst out of this and you will feel much more confident about getting your new business ‘off the ground’.
To give you some ideas, here is a list of key businesses:
~ Banks/Building Societies
~ Car Dealerships, Charity Organisations, Council Offices
~ Day Nurseries & Pre-Schools
~ Engineering Companies, Emergency Services: Fire Stations, etc.
~ Financial Services Companies, Florists
~ Garage Services, Golf Clubs
~ Hotels, Hospitals/Hospices
~ Insurance Companies

~ Kitchen Showrooms
~ Leisure Centres/Health Clubs

There are key times of the year when it is always easier to approach businesses, especially if you have a products that can be promoted as a gift: Christmas, Valentines, Mother’s Day, Easter and Father’s Day. Therefore, always think about how you could promote your products to be more attractive to purchasers at these key times.
I hope this is helpful to you.
Until next time
