Here are 7 ideas to keep your direct sales business growing over the summer:

  1. Connect at outings. For some people, summer is the time they see the most people in person, at picnics, parties, reunions and social events. What better time than to hand out samples and catalogs, talk about your business and products and offer to book parties?
  2. Use your products as gifts. Never go to a party or picnic empty-handed. This is the perfect opportunity to share your line by bringing a hostess gift, graduation gift or birthday gift from your company’s line. Be sure to have a label on it, so the recipient knows your site and that it’s from your company.
  3. Offer freebies and specials. We have all heard of Christmas in July, right? Now is the perfect time to get new customers by offering stock sales and percentage off sales. People love free gifts or a certain percentage off so get creative by making mini gift baskets as a free gift with purchase or offering a cash discount. (side note: do not offer these online on social media as per our policies and procedures)
  4. Offer incentives for your team. While you are out working hard, is your team? This is a great opportunity to drive them to produce bigger sales or sponsor more by offering incentives such as gift certificates for free products or gift baskets with the newest company products for them to use and share.
  5. Plant your seeds for Fall. We all know that a harvest only grows after many seeds are planted and tended. Make this your prep time for the busiest Fall ever and the most bountiful harvest by taking steps to get the word out about your business. This can be everything from booking Fall events and fairs to making sure you reorder enough catalogs and business cards for the upcoming season. Every new place you go (even out-of-state) is an opportunity to hang a flyer, to leave a business card, to tip a waitress with a free sample or to network with new people. Think of the unlimited possibilities a 7 day road trip with the family or a reunion with dozens of people could bring.
  6. Book your Fall parties and events now. Many events allow only one vendor per company so if you snooze, you lose. Contact the venues you did last year to get the date for this year. Reach out to churches or local schools for when they will be holding their Holiday boutiques.Connect with friends about booking parties and get them scheduled in ASAP. There are only so many weeks before Christmas comes, so create that sense of urgency that they need to do it now. Browse the local papers for newly listed events. Of course, you can book summer parties too. How about a “Pamper party on the patio” or “Goodies in the garden” or “Summer Spa” party theme?
  7. Grow your team. Contact people who are out of work or people who don’t work in the summer like teachers. So many people are looking for extra money and if you don’t ask, you may miss out and find they joined another company without ever knowing of your opportunity. Anyone unemployed needs quick cash so emphasize how making sales from product on hand can get them that cash they are yearning for.

While taking time off to enjoy some summer fun is great for everyone, keep up the momentum and drive during the summer and watch your business grow even more!

We will be having our August meeting on the 9th in Broward County. Time and Place will be announced at a later time. Make sure you save the date so you can be there! If you didn't attend convention, we will be sharing all the highlights there and all the new product, live and in person! A super exciting meeting that you DO NOT WANT TO MISS!


I hope you are all enjoying the monthly newsletter and weekly emails. I have really appreciated your understanding, patience, and feedback as I work to put some really great support in place for all of you.

I thought you may like to know a few things I am working on or have in mind for our future:

Going forward we will be doing our own separate team meetings here in Broward. I am hoping we can alternate venues so that we can give our Dade and Monroe friends a shorter drive. I will be asking my leaders to contribute and help run the meetings. I feel it is so important for you to hear from them and their experiences.

I'm going to be putting together a new designer training that will hopefully be run two times a month alongside an opportunity meeting.

I will be coming to you on video occasionally and will have my first one ready to go some time this week. These will be short videos with training tips that you can share with your team members.

For those team members that are not local, we will be putting together a short and concise virtual training. Since we have so many great videos now from the Nest, this will be a condensed version and something we can offer once a month as well.

I would also like to institute a google hangout once or twice a month just for anything that might be going and open it up to questions. I will send this out once I try it out with my leaders.

I'm currently working on our team's new designer guide. Thanks to a wonderful team building/leadership summit I attended, I have the tools needed to put something great together for all of you. Piecing it together is just taking me some time and then I will be uploading it for you to access. My hope is that you can then brand it for yourself and your team and use for any new designers.

This and other training tools and files will be uploaded to my website in our new team section! I can't wait to share it with all of you. You will need to sign up to gain access and then you will be able to get to documents I upload there. I also have some great "features" that will be on my personal site and something special for my first line. Keep an eye out for when I launch so you can see all the great stuff coming your way!
