First of all, this is not a business that you run solo. The nature of this sales channel requires you to talk to people all the time, whether they be customers, your sales recruits, people in your upline, people in corporate, etc. If you are trying to convince people that they can be successful in network marketing, you have to look the part. Just how do you convey that image? Read this article for some helpful tips in development your image as a successful network marketer.
You may have grown up with the belief that you should not judge people by their clothing. However, when you are in sales, this is inevitable. People in your audience, your potential customers, your potential recruits, will all look at what you wear when you make your presentation. It is part of your total package as a network marketer. If you want to convey success, what you wear needs to be high-end, with a tailored look, preferable with a designer label. You'd be surprised how many people can recognize a designer's style. If you cannot afford to buy new at retail, consider a consignment store where you can get designer labels at a big discount.
Take care about how you accessorize your apparel. If you are going to wear a watch or some kind of jewelry, go for the expensive look without having it look garish or fake. Be subtle about your jewelry and adornment because too much of it will just make you look like you are flaunting your success. People might just assume that you are fake pieces even though they may not be.
Do not forget your shoes. These are an important part of your whole outfit. You may not think people look at your feet, but they do. High quality designer shoes are ideal to bring your look together.
Your hand-held electronic equipment says a lot about you, too. Get yourself the latest, most popular, full-featured cell phone. You should also carry around the latest tablet computer that you will need for your business presentation. Be high tech. You want to impress your audience.
It goes without saying that you have to be well-groomed, with a clean and organized appearance. Make sure that your fingers are properly manicured. Your hair should not look disheveled. Before your presentation, do one last check in front of a mirror to make sure that nothing is out of place.
If your car is not exactly in the best shape, it may be wise to rent a nicer one just for the days of your meetings. How would your potential recruits feel if you drive up to your meeting in an old car that looks like it has seen better days? It will probably make them wonder why you do not buy a new one if you are so successful. This is a business expense that you can probably write off on your taxes. So, strongly consider this if your own car is in really bad shape.
You can get many high-end items in consignment stores, so you really do not have to spend a fortune. The goal is to look successful to do your business justice.
