Is the grass greener in other Direct Sales ?

greener-grab1Have you ever heard the phrase it is always greener on the other side? Perhaps you’ve been speaking with some one that left your current company someone who left to join the latest greatest company. They have a car bonus anyone can acquire. Unique new ingredients or celeb endorsements and everyone is creating more cash there than with your business.

Does this sound familiar?

This is the myth of switching direct  sales companies. It is understood as the grass is greener.

The reality is the grass is seldom greener. People attempting to convince direct sellers to  switch by showing you it is alright to construct numerous companies simultaneously, are doing this because they want to sponsor you! Really rarely does a sponsor tell you to remain where you are!

My Coach says that you could be having issues in your present company, but when you switch companies you’ll encounter new issues.

There are no best direct sales companies but there are a lot of GOOD companies. Meaning no matter where you go they’ll be problems. Even hot new companies will eventually run out of merchandise, have new competitor’s pop-up, and have investigations or bad media. It occurs to everyone sooner or later. Even good companies may run into problems where one bad vendor gets into difficulty and generates a ton of bad press. It’s not the business’s problem.

Another difficulty people have regardless of the idea that everything will be perfect… believes they could switch companies and instantly get back to the same degree. You cannot get back to the same level  instantaneously. Time is taken by it! I have lately seen a couple of people switching companies . Yes they may be considered a “name” and may attract a lot of people straight away… but think about a year after? How many people from their original downline have come over with them? What if 50% come over throughout a year. That really means you’ve DROPPED 50%. Then you recognize this business is not as good as you thought and you switch AGAIN. Why don’t we say the same results ? Over the course of a year you are able to get 50% of your down line to move. You have actually LOST 75% of your original downline! And that is with 50% preservation. What if your retention is only 20 or 30%! As a leader sure I might make a lot of money by switching. There are a lot of people  I have touched in my business that would want to have me as a sponsor. Possibly they are an orphan, their sponsor is inactive, or recognize they picked a poor sponsor. Maybe they simply didn’t know any better. A mate showed them the business and they noticed the possible but their friend is not a good sponsor and they may not have an up line leader that is willing to use them.

I understand if I changed not only might I get lots of people I have individually sponsored to switch… I could get a lot of people  in my company to switch… and I could probably also reach out to prospects and friends which may be more interested in a brand new company than my present one. But that is only me… What about my team? Here is where the myth of switching direct sales  companies really comes in… what if my  people  switched too? Will they be able to make their money back quickly? Will they be able to replace their money  quickly?

I know if I switched not only could I get a lot of people I’ve personally sponsored to switch… I could get a lot of people in my company to switch… and I could probably also reach out to prospects and friends that might be more interested in a new company than my existing one. But that’s just me… What about my team? Here is where the myth of switching direct sales companies really comes in… Can my team get people to switch too? Will they be able to make their money back quickly? Will they be able to replace their money quickly? Will the switch confuse them? Will they get confused by all the changes and having to learn a new system? I wonder if some of these people switching companies every year or two are thinking this way. Are they thinking of their team or just thinking of themselves? For me I’ve been with Oriflame UK  for almost 13 years. I’m not going anywhere! I see my team growing consistently. Our sales are increasing and money is increasing… and we’re still a small company! I can’t wait to see where this goes once we expand!
