Like me, do you operate a direct sales company and are you trying to figure out how to streamline your operations so that you can devote more of your valuable business time to activities that generate revenue?
I'm here to inform you that an autoresponder is one of the easy measures you can do RIGHT NOW to benefit your business in the long run. When someone signs up by email or a web form, an autoresponder, which is an internet application, automatically sends out a prewritten email message or series of emails that you've produced.
That sounds a lot more difficult to understand than it actually is. In order to show you how simple this is, let me offer you some examples that can apply to different elements of your direct sales business:
tracking and follow-up on leads.
Do you engage in offline or online advertising? When a prospective client or employee emails you to learn more about your business, you can include an autoresponder in your advertisement to promptly send them your introductory packet of information. You can also differentiate each ad by including a separate email address, making it simple to determine which advertisements are generating results.
Do you have a discount or an ebook you could offer to prospective employees or customers? Create a web form and set it up in your autoresponder (these tasks are usually free with most systems) so you can embed it in your blog or website. Simply add a brief line like "Request more information about my business today and receive a free gift," which will direct interested prospects to your autoresponder where the gift and information will be given to them automatically.
newsletters for the base.
You should communicate with your distribution team on a frequent basis if you have one. That is simple to accomplish with an autoresponder, first with a "welcome to my team" email and then as you circulate your team newsletter around the list.
With a series of email training messages designed for the days while they are waiting for their starter kit, you can assist your new consultants in getting off to a fantastic start in their new firm. It's a fantastic technique to maintain energy during the early going!
Do all the distributors in your group seem to have the same questions about a particular aspect of your direct sales business? As inquiries are submitted, set up your team members in a new series of emails that are particular to that business topic.
You'll elevate team leaders as your direct sales company expands. Congratulate them on their promotion and offer them support in their new leadership position with a set of emails. You may set up a strategy to have them taught and equipped. Many direct sellers have no concept what it takes to manage their own team. and have it continuously operate for you.
newsletters for customers.
Utilize an autoresponder series to stay in touch with your consumers, just like you would with your downline. Create a welcome series for new clients to retain your name and contact details in their minds.
Create an email course on how to use some of your items or a series of emails that highlight a product of the month from your product range.
Create a series of contest emails for your downline or for your consumer base. Have a "scavenger hunt" across your inventory, for instance, and use the autoresponder system to build anticipation over a number of days.
If you're not brand-new to direct sales, I'm going to estimate that the majority of you already have the data for many of the above suggestions on your computer. It is simple to enter the data into an autoresponder so that it can function for you even when you are away from the computer doing other things. Test it out. Many autoresponders provide a free trial period so you may test them out before making a commitment. however after using it for only six months with my own direct sales company, I can assure you that it's well worth the money!
