In the past 6 months, I’ve done a lot of research and watched a lot of successful women as examples on how to succeed in my social business. But the best thing I’ve done so far is to learn from experience. I’ve put a few of what I believe are the most important things I’ve learned into writing so you babes can learn from my experiences and go get some of your own!
1. Be you.
I know this seems obvious, and I’m sure you’ve heard it before, but be YOU. Stock pictures are great, reposting other inspirational photos are sometimes helpful, but your customers want to see and hear from YOU. You have a social business, they’re following you for a reason, so give them more of you. Think about it from the flip side, would you be more likely to buy something from a stranger’s picture, or from your friend or family’s picture who you know, like, and trust?
2. Be real.
Some days are amazing in your social business, yep, your team just hit a new sales goal, you just tried a new product that you love, you just ranked up, again- share it! But some days aren’t so great, and sharing how you’ve overcome that and grown will help people get to know you better and relate to you. Life isn’t usually always rainbows and butterflies, so acting like it is will only make prospective recruits think they can’t fit this amazing adventure into their messy lives, but you fit it into your messy life, so of course they can!
3. Be consistent.
It is pretty much the most important thing you can do for your social business. It’s hard, I know, it is because sometimes you just can’t think of a post or the day has been insane. But post every.single.day! And I get it, sometimes the only people liking your posts are your mom, best friend, and upline. But I promise you, your friends, family, and followers are watching! They might not be engaging and that’s okay. Keep posting. They want to know if you’re still loving your products, if you’re still having fun, if you’re being successful-why?! Because they’re wondering if they’d love your products, if they’d have fun doing what you’re doing, if they’d be successful doing what you’re doing! If you’re not consistently posting about it, they’ll think you’re not and they’ll lose interest. They’re watching, and one day they’ll contact you.
