If you’re a gardener, you know how important posts are:  

  • You post signs next to the seeds so you know what to expect  
  • You place posts in the ground for a fence so the animals don’t eat your plants  
  • You see that in the first instance, I use post as a verb. I love verbs because they mean action. The second idea uses post as a noun. Here’s the TWIST for my home party plan friends so you can SPRING ahead of the summer months with posts  

So, post the following this week:  

  • Your phone number on your e-mail signature so customers can CALL you  
  • A daily status on your Facebook or Twitter account about how you’re using your product.  This is not a post asking for business, rather a post making people THIRSTY for the product you’re talking about. In fact, you don’t even have to say it is something in your product line. Believe me….people will ask about it!
  •  Post a flyer about your company or opportunity in a local business  
  • Names and phone numbers of people you’ve promised to call this month. Remember, when a customer gives you her contact information, it is implied permission to contact her, and you’re giving an implied promise that you will. Keep your promise!  This is one way to overcome Phone Phobias…have the info readily available to take action  
  • Next, place posts on your calendar. Remember the gardener who puts posts in the ground, you can put posts on your calendar to protect your family from infringes from our business. My friends used to make fun of me for writing “Date Night with Bob” (Mr. Lemon Aid, my husband), on Friday nights. They told me I was too busy if I had to make an appointment with my husband. On the contrary, I put him there so I made sure nothing else was put into those precious hours  

Likewise, place posts on the time you’ll work in your business be it holding parties, contacting customers, or recruiting new consultants. If you don’t make time to do these all-critical and FUN business tasks, you’ll be making excuses for not accomplishing them.  

And, one way to have some fun is to use some Post IT® Notes!   

This idea could also be such a fun Direct Sales TEAM MEETING!  Use the info in this article and ask people to bring their favorite Post it notes….or box of Post® cereal…or an earring with a post in it. You get the idea. The most important thing is to teach them the Post Concept of Springing Forward.
