in Direct Sales
From surveys and
experience, we've noticed many setting excellent goals for their business.
We've also noticed that while the goals being set are good, the results
aren't. Around 90% of those in Direct Sales do SET goals, but never reach
So the question comes to mind.....are you making the right plans to reach
your goals? It's GREAT to set a certain amount you want to make, so you have
a little motivation, but without the proper planning reaching that goal is
going to be more difficult.
Ask yourself the following questions:
What have you done in the past that created sales?
How can you improve on ideas for creating sales?
What ideas for sales have you seen but not tried?
Take a minute to write down every way you can think of to make your sales
(such as through parties, catalog shows, drawings, etc), then make some more
specific goals for doing each task. Such as "contact 10 people and book at
least 3 shows".
Once you have a plan in motion, be sure to stick with it! A dream won't
become reality if you are just simply wishing for it.
If you have an idea of how to get to your goal, well that's half the battle.
The next part of course is taking action. You should have your goals AND
plans clearly written in a place you can see. It's true everyone has their
own way of setting and reaching goals, which is fine, but everyone needs to
have them BOTH written down in some way.
If you don't have a goal or even a plan, now is a perfect time to start!
