5 Things You Should Know Before Beginning Your Direct Selling Journey with QNet
You probably arrived on this site because you are looking for information on QNet after someone told you about our products and services, and our business opportunity. Or you recently signed up as an Independent Representative and you are wondering what to do next.
Either way, here are the key questions most people new to this business ask. We try to answer those burning questions and also give you some advice to help you build a sustainable and successful business.
1. Is Sales Experience Necessary?
Don’t have a background in business or sales? No worries. An entrepreneurial spirit is what matters. Wanting to succeed, liking people, and believing in the product is important.
Find a product or service you love. Without a strong belief in what you are selling, you will not be able to market it to others. Some of QNet’s most successful distributors had no experience or background in sales or business. But when they started using QNet’s products and saw the benefits of supplementing their income through the business opportunity they realised the immense potential it had. This fueled their passion and drove them to excel.
2. How much can you earn?
It is really up to you. It takes work like any other business. Nothing happens overnight. If you give it time, be patient and follow the training the company and your uplines provide, you can be successful. The outcome entirely depends on the effort you make.
You can decide to work 12 hours a day for a period of time to create a solid foundation needed to build your business and eventually make a significant amount of money. Or you can say, ‘I just want to work on it part-time along with my main job and make just enough money to pay for a good holiday with my family.’
It’s a flexible opportunity.
3. How Soon Can You Start Making Money?
This is an important question that every newcomer to the business asks. And the answer is related to the previous one. Direct sales is not as hard as doing manual labour on a construction site but it does involve significant effort and it is definitely not an easy, get-rich-quick endeavour.
You can make a comfortable living, but your results will only match your efforts. There are a lot of great leaders in QNet and in the Direct Selling industry at large who spent years working towards their goal before they made any significant amount of money. At the same time, there are also a few bad apples spoiling it for everyone else by claiming they started making money from the first week. This leads us to the next point. Arm yourself with knowledge.
4. Learn About the Industry and the Company
Read up everything you can about the industry, its growth pattern and the trends of successful product categories. This information is easily available online on industry sites like World Federation of Direct Selling Associations.
Read the company’s corporate brochure, website, product portfolio, marketing materials, and review the policies and procedures document to fully understand how everything works. Knowledge is power. If you do not understand what you are signing up for, you will never be able to fully utilize the potential of this business.
5. Be Prepared for Rejection
Let’s face it. Direct selling is not the most well-understood business. It doesn’t help that there are plenty of misleading reports in the media about direct selling based on false assumptions. This has created a perception problem for the industry.
You must be willing to explain and re-explain the nature of your business and work that much harder to earn the trust of your prospective customers who have either never heard of direct selling, or have a negative opinion about it. This is where all that research and reading up you have done will come in handy.
In any case, you must be prepared for people not reacting favourably to you when you bring up the topic. This is when it becomes important to have complete faith in the product and the company, and in your own ability to find like-minded people who can see what you see.
