ALERT: POSITIVE POST, POSITIVE POST
First of all, I've been an IBO, for 9 months. I am NOT an expert at retailing; in fact I suck at it. However, I am just sharing few thoughts, if you are willing to hear someone who sucks at retailing and not a big fan of Quixtar (well, AQMOs).
Tip # 1: Easy PV.
Yeah, there are services which can make 100 PV easy without spending $250 plus. E.g. Long distance phone service, CC card. I am out for more than a year so I don't know if that's been changed. If it hasn’t changed, then try concentrating on it. See if you can spend few hours in a busy mall and ask ppl to sign up for CC card. Check Q-Rules first. I don't know if there's a rule preventing that. Or, you may go door to door. I have sales people doing that. Let’s say in few hours you have 15 signed up forms. Let’s say 5 of them got approved. You'll get 500 PV after few months. Yeah those PV come late (if that's still the case) but 500 PV for 6 hours every month! Not bad eh! Same goes with the long distance phone service sign up. We had primus. Pretty competitive, if not the best.
Tip # 2: eSpring
Become a maniac of eSpring. This should be your first priority. Forget every thing else and concentrate on retailing eSpring. It is not a bad product. 270 PV right? Try standing on filtered water section on a mall and prospect ppl buying them. Have their number and you know the rest. You should maintain a research file as well on eSpring facts. 1 eSpring a month is not hard.
Tip # 3: Self consumption
Now don't hate me. I am not saying doing 100 or 300 PV. ONLY use those products you want to, e.g. toothpaste, shampoo, skin care, laundry etc. These products, arguably, may save you some money. Handy to promote to guests. And have a lot of guests ;) As a customer, I like the products that save me money!
From now on, every Tuesday I'll try to post 3 retailing tips. I repeat again, I am not a successful retailer. I don't like doing retail, and if you are willing to take advice from me then ... good luck!
I’ve posted some of other retailing tips in some forums. I'll try to do so here. I might have actually made some money instead of losing it if I hadn't spent so much time on opens, plans, quests and other insipid stuff. Well I was told "It's not selling". Non-system IBOs, use that time.
