You dont have to be "salesy"
The biggest thing I hear when people are just starting this business is “I don’t want to be salesy” I didn't want to be either! By teaching you how we share can be beneficial fo you so you don't feel you are being salesy.
Saying this does not want anyone want to order from it to you today. Trust me.
You are NOT going to want to miss this!
People like doing the opposite sometimes when it comes to telling them what to do. Avoid it.
SALE! SALE! SALE!
This MAY grab their attention but still, it is coming off a little too strong. If there is a sale, then talk about it and offer education on why they may want to jump on the sale.
Basically, if you can hear it being said in a used car commercial, avoid saying it
Talk conversationally, how you would talk to a friend. Think that you are at a coffee shop with your best friend, talk like that.
You can totally tell if someone is giving info just to make a sale or if they're giving info because they're obsessed with something. Like the new leggings I found on Amazon or the benefits of walking, for example. I can't shut up about those things! I have lost track of how many of my friends have bought them because of my rave reviews, and I don't make a dime off any of it. I truly just love them. Think about how you would share about something if there were NO money to be made, and do that.
Example: "Trying ________ (my Ningixa today) today. They say it ____________ (is full of antioxidants). Here it goes, down the hatch! I'll report back on how we feel about it."
“Stuck in traffic on my morning commute. I just got a bunch of these essential oils. Not sure exactly how they work yet, but I tried the Stress Away one and it made the drive a whollleeeeee lot more chill.”
So, we do this "selling" thing differently than most. And that is such a good thing! Our goal is genuinely to SHARE and to get these oils into as many homes as possible because we know what they can do. I think most of us would give them out for free if we could!
From our genuine passion comes the desire to share far and wide, and I want to make sure that in our sharing we really are setting ourselves apart from the other marketing that is out there. Nobody likes the salesy posts that can sometimes overload our social media feeds. We want to be so different from that.
Another thing I hear is people getting so worked up about needing to know ALL THE THINGS before they even start. Guys, stop. You do not need to be an expert. I am not a fashion expert but DAYUM do I know when I love a style of dress and I have zero problem telling people about it. When I share about my fave Gunny and Sack dresses, has anyone ever said to me “Annie, did you go to school for fashion? Why are you qualified to tell me about a dress?”
Um, no, because that’d be freakin’ weird.
Same. with. oils.
Your friends do not need you to be a scientist. Tell them why YOU use your Thieves oil. Tell them what is does for YOU. That is what they want to hear.
