Unearthing old-school gems (Direct Selling Accelerator Spotlight Special) | Episode 207

We talk a lot about the ever changing world of Social Media, embracing the algorithms and understanding the latest changes but today, I want to slow down and take a step back with a Spotlight Special that shines the light on an often overlooked part of our Business – how do we communicate? Not post, not broadcast or promote, simply create conversations.


In a world where Social Media dominates, are we neglecting some of the tried-and-true methods of building connections and growing our businesses?


Let’s delve into the world of old-school communication methods. While we all appreciate the power of Social Media, there’s something special about the personal touch of more traditional approaches. There’s many clever ways to capture people’s attention and forge lasting relationships… And guess what?! Some even existed before Social Media! 😉


As we explored this topic within our team, we stumbled upon some forgotten gems – ideas that made us wonder, “why aren’t we doing that anymore?” These are the strategies that can make you stand out in a crowded marketplace and leave a lasting impression on your audience.


So, let’s take a journey together and uncover the secrets of building meaningful connections. I’ll share some creative ideas that will hopefully spark your imagination and inspire you to invest some more purposeful, focused time into the people around you. Because ultimately, it’s those genuine connections that help to nurture relationships, drive sales and pave the way for success in Direct Selling.
