Direct Sales: Recruiting Online

Aug 21, 2007
Being able to recruit online has really opened the door for those in direct sales to build large sales teams. Since communicating through the world wide web is a lot different then communicating face to face, there are some things you should be doing as well as some things you should not be doing while recruiting for your direct sales business opportunity. The internet can be a powerful tool in promoting your direct sales business if used wisely. There can also be serious concequences if you abuse the system. Being knowledgeable about this can make all the difference.

First of all be honest with your potential recruits. Don't try and make it sound like the direct sales company that you represent is the only company out there that is profitable. Just let them know the honest facts about the income potential that they can have with your company and by all means share how excited you are about what you are selling. Just laying out the facts can create a compelling case for joining your business.

Make sure to make yourself available to your online recruits whether it is through email, chat rooms, instant messages or phone. Nothing would be worse then to have wonderful conversations through email with a potential sponsor and then never hear from them again once you've signed up. If you cannot offer a certain level of supportiveness to online recruits, you are not likely to be successful building a team in this manner.

Another thing to remember while recruiting online is not to knock other companies. You want to present yourself in a professional manner and that is not going to happen if you're making statements like "You won't make any money at all with Company X" or "Company B has such lousy products and the commissions are horrible."

Don't be pushy. For instance, if someone is looking for a company that offers bath and body products, don't push them into uncomfortable discussions about joining your children's toy company. You also can run the risk of getting in trouble for spamming if you post recruiting ads without keeping in mind the rules and regulations of any and all online communities you join.

These are just a few things to keep in mind while you are trying to build your sales team online. Have a solid plan in place before you begin searching online for your future sales team and you are sure to be successful.
