Social retailing (also known as social selling) is the ability to sell products online via social media.
Whether you love it or hate it (and hopefully you love it) social media has had a huge impact on the way we live our life. People now search social media sites for products and services. Savvy professionals are discovering that promoting products that people are searching for is a great way to earn an income. They have become social retailers.
As you may have realised by now, social retailing is the ability to retail products on social media.
A great example of this is Amazon. Have you ever bought a product from someone who sells products on Amazon? Well, they are a social retailer. They have a supplier, they promote their products, they make their money.
Social retailing success
The key to success is:
- Having quality products to promote
- A solid system and method you can follow to help you start making sales sooner rather than later
- Being able to teach 1. and 2. to other people who become part of your team.
Numbers 1 and 2 will allow you to build an income from the commission you earn. Number 3 will help you build an income from the sales made in your team. The larger your team the more earning potential you enjoy.
Developing a team with social retailing
So, it stands to reason that social retailing should always be about more than just product promotion online. To be truly successful and enjoy a regular monthly income you need a team. The BEST news is this – the more you help your team become successful, the more successful you become.
Team leaders are ambitious and determined to help their team. They will also teach their team to be ambitious and determined too.
You don’t have to become a team leader. You may choose to run your social retailing business just a couple of hours a week. You do as much or as little as you like. The key is when you want to do more your team is there to help you.
If retail shops are going to survive more engagement across different social media platforms is essential. Another advantage to being an Acti-Labs Ambassador, rather than a traditional shop owner, is the fact that I don’t have to keep stock at home.
As a result, I will concentrate on selling online and telling people about the products. I can then deliver my orders to customers in person or have them shipped directly to them.
Therefore, to run my business all I need is internet access and a computer. No staff to pay. No premises to look after and business rates to worry about. Just me and a huge range of beauty, weight loss and make up products that I can promote online.
