You have started your own greetings card business with Flamingo Paperie! You have your starter pack, now what? How do I get started? HELP!
Here are my top tips:
1. Get the stock that is in your starter pack, put it in a basket and show it to people. The cards are £2 each or £1.60 each if they buy 10 or more. That is all you need to know to start to be able to start showing the cards off!
2. Organise a home business launch, tell people what they are doing and ask them to come around and have a look! Set a date, invite people and talk to your sponsor. Don’t worry if you don’t know what to do at the home launch, your sponsor can help you with that.
3. Get your details on the brochures, write your details on if you don’t have stickers or a stamp. Put an order form in each brochure and start handing the brochures out to family, friends, neighbours and colleagues.
4. Meet with your sponsor either in person or online. Set some goals with their help and start making a plan of how you can get to those goals.
5. Ask your friends to have a home event for you, call in some favours if you need to!
Tips for Keeping Going:
1. Work consistently and try to touch your business each day if you can.
2. Remember: you won’t earn if you don’t work your business especially in the beginning!
3. Meet up with other local partners to share tips, help to motivate each other, to find out about what is working for them and general support.
4. Attend company events, even if that involves travelling and juggling other things to get there! These are really important for learning from the company and from other more experienced Flamingo Paperie partners.
5. Ask your sponsor for help if you need it.
