February Tips

Building Your Team and Ways to Organize your Week

Building A Strong Team

First and foremost, to build a strong team, all depends on your ATTITUDE!
"Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference." Winston Churchill
When you are excited about your business and the opportunity Origami Owl has given you, people WILL notice it, and WANT to be a part of it! :) Origami Owl has a great message and an awesome mission to be a Force For Good! If you stand by this, live it, and breathe it, GREAT things will happen for you!

More Technical Tips:

  • This tip is not mandatory, it is just something I have found to work :) You want to make sure you are not piling up a ton of your team members in the same area of a town. Once you have about 5-10 Designers in an area (depending on how large the population is), you can place new designers below those designers. For an example: I have Designers 1-10 as my Frontline who are all in the same town. I then find 3 more new recruits from the same town. I would then strategically place those new recruits on one of my frontline Designer's team. This makes sure there isn't a lot of competition in the same area. Instead of everyone working against each other they are working, as a team, WITH each other. It also allows you to build a strong team so, you will more than likely move up in the Career Plan. You can make these decisions based on your Frontline's performances.

  • Recruiting from outside your circle is VERY important! To do this, find events in your area. Call local churches, schools and search craigslist.com. Also try to find events that are about 30 minutes to an hour outside of your local area. This helps expand your customer base and reach other potential Designers to add to your team. Events are a great way to introduce your business and explain the opportunity.

  • Hostesses are your BEST Designers!! You already know they LOVE the product so, giving them a wonderful Jewelry Bar experience will convince them that becoming a Designer is something they can do! :) Give them a wonderful experience and they will sign up to be a Designer!

  • Connect with other Direct Sale Consultants. Building relationships and networking with other DS Consultants can broaden your network of people and also add potential recruits. Setting up a referral relationship with these other Consultants will help you expand, too.
