PURPOSEFUL SOCIAL SELLING
The Purposeful Social Selling podcast is for the modern day network marketer and social seller.

Have you ever shied away from selling a bigger price point to a customer because you didn’t think they could afford it? Or what about putting off investing in your business because you have a psychological issue with debt? Believe it or not, your thoughts on money can affect more than your business’s bottom line.
To DM or not to DM? That is the question. And the answer may not be what you’d expect.
In the world of social selling, we’re often so focused on the selling part that we totally forget about how to do the social aspect in a way that serves our audience. This week on the podcast, Kristen talks about the importance of reaching out and engaging with a relational mindset and how consistency once again is the driving force behind your future success as a network marketer.
Momentum in business can be defined as ‘the force that propels your business forward.’ At the beginning of the pandemic, many network marketers saw big booms in their sales and recruiting, which led to a belief that once everything went back to normal, they’d be back at square one. With no momentum in sight.
In the world of network marketing, seeing the end of the month creep up on the calendar can cause panic to kick in. You need one big push to hit rank or to make your income goal, and there’s only so much time left. It can be tempting to jump into hustle mode: messaging all the people, desperately posting all over Instagram, staying up all hours…
Being successful can often come at a price. And all too often that price is paid by those who are closest to us. It’s easy to get tunnel vision when running a network marketing business: checking your phone at all hours, missing family time to run a meeting, or simply forgetting to check-in with your spouse over who’s turn it is to wash the dishes.
“How do you have time to do it all?” is one of the most frequently asked questions Kristen receives. Today she’s sharing more about her journey as a mother and a business owner and how that relationship has evolved over the years.
We’ve all had a bad day, or a bad week. Heck, maybe even a bad month. Maybe you’ve contemplated jumping to another company, or quitting all together because it’s just not working. You may not know it, but there is real danger in how we talk to ourselves during those times of low belief and frustration.
When you first decided to jump into network marketing, no one told you how demanding it would be to lead your own team. The weekly calls, the check-ins, and not to mention onboarding new members and keeping up morale. You only have so much energy to go around, and it can be disheartening to put in so.much.effort, only to feel like you’re wasting your time.
Just like the argument over whether pineapple belongs on pizza (it does!), network marketing is a topic everyone has an opinion on. And surprise, not everyone thinks it’s awesome. If you’ve been in this business for any length of time, you’ve probably attracted your fair share of haters. Well, Kristen isn’t having any of it.
There’s a laundry list of reasons to begin your journey into social selling. For many, it’s often the promise of freedom to spend more time with your loved ones or the enticement of a better work/life balance (and let’s not forget the unlimited earning potential!!). If you’ve been in the network marketing arena for any length of time, you know that success can quickly lead to feelings of overwhelm, frustration, and panic.
