Over the years we've had the pleasure of working with many talented distributors. These are some of the tips
Put a lot of yourself into your business and build it up. Do the work yourself until it is off the ground. If you do hire employees, make sure they are reliable. It takes hard work, dedication and determination. All the ingredients must be there to be successful. Also, satisfying the customer played a big role.
Don't expect overnight success. Don't expect every project to be a phenomenal money maker. Even if you don't make much money on a project, it may impact your business in the long run. Some projects are worthwhile since they help create goodwill and give you valuable exposure. Be patient. Don't give up after two or three years. Set up a web site and do some on location sales every now and then.o on location.
Always carry a brochure, business card and sample book with you. When someone asks what you do, show them.
Make sure to include your website and phone number in every book you make.
Having a positive attitude about the product and making a commitment to sell the books. I made a commitment to myself to work on selling Create-A-Books seven days a week even if it only means spending five or 10 minutes a day thinking about the business or planning a new marketing approach.
Sowing the seeds all year; putting in the hours on a day to day basis pays off. Producing quality books. I don't take shortcuts. I care about every book I make. I want each book to be my very best.
Turning out a quality product. If the customer is not happy with the book, we redo it until they are satisfied. We make sure our employees have the same commitment. Nothing can replace quality.
Your voice inflection is important. You can transfer your enthusiasm to your customer through your pattern of speech.
Add the name, phone number, email address and a few short notes of every customer into a list. Having this list and using it to staying in touch [marketing] was the backbone to our exponential sales growth.
