What does my dream sales team look like and how will I ensure they help build my business?
This question was put out by Natalie on Day 18 of the Suitcase Entrepreneur’s 30 Day Blog Challenge as she is teaching us about building a trusty affiliate team to sell our products for us. This has always been a dream of mine but with only one ebook out at the moment and not having even given it a good go at marketing myself, I always felt as if I wasn’t quite at the point where I would go ahead and start getting other people to sell it.
Having said that, the way that Natalie has laid out in such a simple format, all of the key points to getting started with this, I’m definitely adding this to my To Do list! Click here to read her post.
So here I am asking myself the question of what my dream sales team looks like and how I will ensure they help build my business. Well, for the first part of the question, I would love to have a competent affiliate team made up of some of my loyal friends, family and followers as well as possibly some professional Internet marketers that are excited about my products and services and interested in participating in competitions to generate rewards and prizes. I envision a group of people who are in the Self development & Online marketing industries themselves or are extremely interested in these two areas as this would give common ground for affiliates and enable me to offer great prizes that would appeal to these types of people ie. Personal development products and services, Coaching products, Online training programmes and subscriptions etc…
And that brings me to the second part of the question which is ‘How will I ensure they help build my business?’. So, as I mention above, I envision that the people in my affiliate sales team would have an interest in the Self development and/or Online marketing industries as I would design some really exciting, affiliate competitions with extremely motivating prizes that will keep them engaged! I’m a sucker for competitions myself so I know real well how rewarding the thrill of the race can be for some people. Hopefully it can be a huge win/win for many.

But from me, it’s bye for now as I add this awesome new project to my To Do list! x
