Why you should think twice before you offer discounts for your direct sales business

In my direct sales business, occasionally I would receive an email like this: “I am wanting to place an order (around $100) and was finding some other reps online who are offering 15-25% off of orders and free shipping (found this while looking for a coupon code to use since i see there is a coupon code box on the checkout/cart page) I would rather do business with someone local, so do you have any deals you can offer right now?” It was frustrating because it made me feel like ...

Giving excellent customer service and building strong customer relationships does not have to be complicated. That all begins with gratitude and can be as simple as two words- “Thank you.” Those two words seem to be a rarity these days. I’ve found this to be especially true when it comes to retail and customer service.  Perhaps I’m just more sensitive to it because I have a customer service centered career or maybe it’s because of how I was raised.  ...

How to Overcome Struggles in your Direct Sales Business

I remember going trick or treating as a kid. I loved dressing up in costume and getting to be a princess or Minnie Mouse or a witch each year. It was fun going door to door and getting all of those treats. My favorite was always the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Halloween is a fun time, but can also be scary.
