Direct Sales Reps CAN Write Articles -
by Kara Kelso and Anita DeFrank
We all know that article writing is a
great way to promote our businesses AND helps establish us as an
expert in our fields. But, just because we know how important it is
to our business doesn�t necessarily make us able to do it. It�s often
said, �I�m not a writer, I can�t write articles.� Or �I can�t write an
article about my own products without it sounding like an ad.� Do
either of these sound familiar?
Here�s a twist on article writing that can
both help and provide a little extra fun. Find another consultant
from another non-competing direct sales company. Exchange products
with each other and both of you try them each out. Once you have
tried the product yourself, write an article about it. In return the
other consultant does the same thing. It�s much more natural for us
to be able to write about and recommend someone else�s products. It�s
a win-win situation!
Don't forget to add your resource box to
the end of your article, and remind them to do the same. So really you
are getting twice the advertising as you would just writing your own
article! Not to mention you have a "testimony" that's not an ad and
being used as content on other sites.
Pull up your address book and start
figuring who you can exchange products with. Try to find others that
have similar but not competitive products. Such as if you sell home
decor with no candles, find someone that has candles.
