Recruiting new teammates for your direct sales business can be a frustrating yet rewarding part of your business. In order to grow your business to levels with hundreds of representatives, you must be recruiting people all the time. Here is some information on how to recruit new members of your team on WAHM websites.
* Tip * Always check with your company first before doing any type of online advertising as many of the direct sales companies have rules and guidelines regarding advertising online. You do not want to be in violation of their rules.
If you are looking to recruit online, one great way to start is to join a few of the online wahm (work at home mom) networking communities and web sites. You will find hundreds of them online but you really should only join a handful of them so that you keep it manageable.
These types of web sites usually have an online forum board (message board) where you can place business opportunity advertisements in the appropriately marked folders on the forum for free. You will need to register for that site’s forum/message board and fill out your profile.
Always introduce yourself to the community members and make yourself a valuable member of the community by participating in their conversations and forum postings. You never want to just join these communities to spam your ads and leave. They will label you as a spammer and never do business with you. You want to be valued member of these communities, so you can post tips and join in on conversations.
The wahm web sites also sell advertising space on their sites in the form of buttons, banners, text link ads, directory listing ads and classified ads. These advertisements can vary greatly in cost so do your homework to find a good site that has great traffic stats before placing an advertisement with them.
When taking out ads on these sites go for a short-term ad and if it doesn’t bring you the results that you seek then move on to the next site and place an ad there. If it does bring you great results you can elect to renew your ad.
Many of the larger direct sales forum boards also have huge websites that offer directories for placing your name and contact information for a nominal fee. If you can get an exclusive listing for your company for a good price, that is a great perk.
Recruiting for your direct sales business can take many different avenues online. Be creative, helpful and answer questions for those that are new and you will soon be recognized as a leader and that makes recruiting easier on wahm websites.
