Direct selling offers exciting opportunities to everyone, irrespective of age, gender, educational qualifications, and background. Millions of direct sellers across the globe have created richer and fuller lives both professionally and personally because of direct selling.
While direct selling is a thriving industry the world over, it has faced challenges due to misconceptions as well as the wrong-doings of a few individuals who don’t follow the industry guidelines. At QNET, we always ensure our distributors are fully aware of the company policies and guidelines and uphold the principles of fairness, honesty, and integrity in all their dealings and activities. This is especially true when it comes to presenting a business opportunity to a prospect as it is one of the most crucial steps towards creating a sustainable direct selling business.
As a QNET distributor, you must have come across all the rules and regulations in our Policies and Procedures document, but it’s always good to revisit the ethical practices you need to follow while presenting a business opportunity. Here are some points to keep in mind:
1. Dress for the part
Making a good first impression is crucial to building new relationships. Your appearance, mannerisms, and body language can speak volumes about you even before you start your presentation. So, as a QNET distributor, make sure you follow the proper dress code. Start the presentation by properly introducing yourself. Be respectful of your audience and stay away from using any foul or derogatory language. Your body language during the presentation should be positive and authentic. To make an impression, you can wear one of QNET’s luxury watches.
2. Never mislead or misinform
It is needless to say that misinformation about a company can gravely harm its reputation. Any interaction with business prospects should be transparent and honest. As a direct seller, it is your primary duty to state only the true facts and information about the company and its products or services.
Know your products inside out so that you are always prepared to answer any queries. And the most effective way to learn about the products is by experiencing them yourself. Be the product of the product and share authentic experiences with your audience. You should share only the true information about the products, their characteristics, benefits, and price. You can help the prospects learn more about the products by directing them to our website, India blog QBUZZ, Youtube Channel or QNET official social media channels.
3. DOs of explaining the compensation plan
A prospect is likely to be eager about the compensation plan of a direct selling business. Be extra cautious while explaining how it works, and never provide any false representations concerning the business and the finances associated with it.
While discussing the Compensation Plan, you must not make false claims regarding:
- Any risks likely to be associated with carrying on the business
- The amount of time the average person would have to devote to carrying on the business
- The annual expenditure and the annual gross income which the average person carrying on the business might expect and the method of calculating those figures
