This is the melaluca way of shopping isn't it??? I find the website not up front enough which is kinda sneaky. What I mean is, the lack of product information and neededing to talk to a sales rep to get anymore information I need more forthright information first.

I realize this isn't your site design and the marketing comes from someone else. It is only my opinion and others will need to check out your site to make there own assessment. So I do encourage others to take a look.

Thanks.


I am working on it, but it is a very slow process. If you are a direct sales rep you could benefit by writing your own review of the company you work for. It would need to include things like, Who the company is, what the products are, why you joined, what you like about it, what you find frustrating, how much start up costs are anything else you wish you knew before starting up. The article will be linked to your email and website(s).

Hello,

I definitely appreciate and respect your opinion. There is a really good reason we do not go into a full business plan on our website. We want to be absolutely sure that if someone wants to work with us, it will be a benefit to them. We never ever want anyone to be hurt, so we work very closely with our team members. In order to present a full business plan, it takes time, and really needs to be done in person, or over the phone. We are not sales reps in any way, we do not push or pull anyone into doing anything that they are not comfortable with, instead, we present the information during a phone appointment, and allow the person who requested information to make an informed decision based on the facts rather than reading through a great deal of information, and jumping to conclusions. Another great reason for actually presenting this to someone is that we are there to answer questions, so everything is very clear, and only good decisions are made.
I hope that clears things up for you a little bit....I do however appreciate your opinion!

Not asking for a business plan, asking about the product or what you sell to make money. Even without a product you sell something in order to make money.

Sell a way of shopping?
Sell a service?

A presentation is a sales pitch with a different word used. The marketing strategy is flawed as it breeds distrust that you will need to overcome in your sales pitch instead of breeding trust into a prospect which would make your close easier. It's not your marketing strategy, it is one that the company has taken.



Here is a link that will explain the company from a 3rd party and from that someone may be interested. It is a good review and if you think it will fit into your lifestyle and what you want for a business please contact Julie Svendsen.

see this just sounds like a waste of money. I never get involved with something that doesnt tell me what they are selling the whole mlm thing doesnt work if i dont have a clue what the product is and you site just sounds like well you buy in for this much and we send out the info and then you pay us XX$ and we train you then you recurte others to they site and so on and so forth but there is really now product and it is just a self help positive thinking training seminar that i could buy at the store for $5 tops. I dont mean to offende you but Why not say Hi am ...! and I would like to talk to you about Avon. I sale make up and skin care products and I thought you may be interested in hearing how this works and becomeing part of my team.

or something like that straight and to the point! I would not even mind if you talk for hours about how the product has changed you life and self esteem and how you use this every day and now that you are part of the company how your life is Roses!

I never trust something that does not tell me what i will do or market because it could be porn, drugs, or nothing at all just a scam to ripe me off.

Sorry Im kind of a wet blanket.

the biggest mistake most people make in sales is thinking that the prospect cares about your story.

in business you are not out to sell something per sei, you are, but you have to think about that second. The first thing you need to do is find out what the clients problem is, what their need is, or the gap between what they have and what they want.

Always Always ask questions and always be up front with answers.

I went to skinnyshoestring and right off the bat, I liked the format and honesty of the first reviews that I read. That's what we need: quick and easy information. Thanks for the link!

msbaby,

I had a list for you, but somehow misplaced the link. I reached out to fellow-networkers and was given this site. I think it will be helpful even though it does not give ratings or commentsBellaOnline ALERT: Raw URLs are not allowed in these forums for security reasons. Please use UBB code.
