Focus on team unity
Building and cultivating a strong team is important for building a successful 4Life® business. Do you have regular trainings and networking events planned for your team throughout the year? Are there team members who need special attention? Paying individual attention to people will help your entire group grow.
Grow your network
If you feel like your business isn’t growing at the rate you would like, consider joining professional organizations, participating in social events, and volunteering with organizations you believe in. Successful networking is about building trust, nurturing relationships, and helping others.
After events, organize your business leads to ensure you’re following up in the most effective way. In the September issue of Direct Selling News, the “State of Social Selling” survey showed that people who purchased a product from a direct seller did so after the seller reached out at least three times, on average.
Persistence is key, but knowing when to move on from a prospect is equally important. The survey also showed that 64% of respondents made a purchase because of peer pressure, not actual interest. Learn to read the social cues of your potential customers, which will help you manage your time and effort in the long run.
Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest, and Instagram are powerful tools for every 4Life distributor. And with mobile devices, everyone has constant access to social platforms. When it comes to social media, be genuine and develop your unique voice. Build relationships and interact with your audience daily. Showcase how 4Life® products have helped you transform your life and enjoy a great lifestyle.* Share the financial freedom you’ve achieved with the help of the business opportunity. Offer information such as sales tools, instructional product videos, personal testimonials, and business trainings.

Organize your finances
The start of a new year means it’s time to prepare for tax season. Keep receipts for all business-related expenses, including gas and office supplies. Your home office, internet, and phone line expenses are also tax deductions. If you didn’t maintain organized records last year, now’s the perfect time to develop a new system for 2017.
