Why Should You Have A Personal Website?

Aug 21, 2007
When you are involved in a direct sales company, having a website can be a huge asset. Most direct sales companies offer their sales consultants websites where their customers can place orders. Some are free, and some are low cost. However, being able to sell your products outside your local area really opens up your chances to increase your income considerably. Some companies may limit your market reach so be mindful before jumping in.

A company-provided website can be a very convenient option for a direct seller. For a nominal fee you can have a website fully set up to begin taking orders. So if it is that simple to get a website set up through your company, why are consultants making additional websites to market their products?

While a company-made website is very easy to obtain there is really little customization that can occur with them. As many direct sales company consultants will tell you, personalized service is very important to being successful with your business. Because the only personal information a representative can add to a company-made site is usually their name and possibly an email address or phone number, consultants are making their own separate websites to sell their company's products. This added personaliztion make you more human to your potential clients.

With a custom-made website you can really allow your customers the chance to get to know you and your enthusiasm for the products you sell. What better way to make a sale than to build trust among your client base and let them know that you care about their satisfaction and are thrilled to be offering them quality products.

A personalized website will allow you to better inform your customers about the products you sell. For example if you sell children's toys you can post articles on how beneficial educational toys are for a child's development. Or if you sell spa products, let your customers know the potential benefits for their skin if they try the products you have for sale. The more familiar someone feels with a product the more likely they are to make a purchase. It's important to make website visits as personal as possible.

So while using a company-provided website works just fine for many direct sales consultants, consider the added benefits of building a personalized website to use in tandem with it in order to further build your business.
