These are a few of the resources that I use to learn the Direct Sales business. Much of what I do, I learned from these sources and from the training provided by our mentors and the Nest. They were recommended to me by Heidi Russell and Jill McCarthy. They use them also.

Getting Started

Here are somethings you want to do while you are waiting for your business kit.

#1 ***Tell everyone about your business with Origami Owl. The more you share, the bigger and faster your business will grow!

1. Identify your short term and long term goals. (Don't be afraid to Dream BIG!)

2. Identify your "why". Tell your story.

3. Make a work schedule. How many hours and when will you devote to your business each week doing income producing activities?

*** Income producing activities are: Sharing the business opportunity to build your team, inviting people to host a jewelry bar, searching for craft/vendor events, and following up with past customers)

4. Create your contact list.
When you write this list, include everyone. Not just the people who you think will host a Jewelry bar or join your team. Everyone is a connector to other people. Share your business with everyone you know and ask for referrals of people they know....this way, your contact list will always be growing and so will your business.

5. Pick a date for your launch event.

LAUNCH Event!!!

Lets get this party started!
The purpose of a Launch Event is not for sales, but to share with everyone you know about your new business. It is just like doing a "Grand Opening" of a new store.
Invite people to come to the event for a celebration, to share the business opportunity, share the jewelry and schedule jewelry bars.

1. Write your "who do you know" list. Invite everyone. You want everyone to know what you are doing...even if they don't come to your party. (A.L.I.C.E form in the Back Office)

2. Decide on a date, time and place for your launch event.

3. Send your invitations. First, call people to invite them and then send a fun and festive flyer for the invitations. (I don't recommend the post cards). Include an incentive for people to bring a friend, perks of hosting a JB, info about the business opportunity, etc...

4. Before the event, remind your guests with an e-mail, PM on Facebook, text message, or a phone call. Encourage guests to bring a friend. If they bring someone new that is 12 or older, offer a prize.

5. Plan your presentation. Thank guests for coming. Share your "why" for joining Origami Owl. Share your excitement. Share the jewelry, the hostess rewards, and book those Jewelry bars! Allow time for guests to play with the jewelry and you time to talk to everyone.

6. Highlight dates on your calendar that you are able to do a Jewelry Bar for your customers.

7. Send me an invitation so I can help you get your party and business rocking!
