You’ve probably heard the saying, “You have two hands. One to help yourself and another to help someone else.” Well, it’s true and the best way to succeed in any business is to help others.
Maybe teaching others how to sell won’t make a ton of money at first but helping others in this business brings buyers back to you from word of mouth, so both parties win.
I personally don’t feel charging a fee to learn this business is necessary. I’ve never had to pay anyone to teach me how to do well. Although some sellers are extremely successful, and you may gain info from them you wouldn’t other places. It’s just important to be you know what you are getting into and ask if there is any guarantee.
Below are the best ways I have found to help others and benefit by getting more sales.
· Referrals: Referrals are a great way to get new buyers. Referring buyers to fellow sellers you trust will also help them refer to you. Not every seller will have the same things to offer, so if a buyer wants something specific that you don’t offer, refer them to a seller who does offer it. Give the seller a heads up and ask them to refer buyers back to you if someone is looking for something you offer that they don’t. Not only is this a great way to get to know other sellers, but buyers as well.
· Form and/or join seller only groups: A great way to get to know other sellers and learn tips and advice are to join seller groups. You can even form your own group on popular platforms and it’s a great way to make friends and learn the ropes. There are also seller/buyer groups where you are in a more intimate setting where you can get to know buyers a bit more personally and it’s a great way to find regulars, although not the only way.
· Don’t be a bully: Bullying other sellers to leave the community just simply doesn’t work. Not only will you get a very bad reputation, but where one girl leaves, two more take her place. The panty selling community is the last place you want a bad reputation because it directly affects your business. Word spreads quickly, so be careful about how you are handling your own insecurities. Being a bully only shows others just how insecure and jealous you are of others, making you look very unattractive to work with. Buyers want more than a pretty body; they want the entire package. The whole fantasy and that usually doesn’t involve petty jealousy or gossip.
· Be sincere: This is probably the best advice I can give. No matter what you are doing, be sincere. Don’t talk someone up just to get on their good side, into their group or get their advice. We, as women and as sellers, must have each other’s backs. Be sincere with one another, with buyers and most importantly, yourself. Don’t offer something you aren’t comfortable doing. Don’t compliment someone if you don’t mean it. Don’t step so far outside of your own comfort zone that you resist growth in the business and as a seller.
This isn’t an easy business, but it can be so much fun. I’ve made friends that have followed me throughout my selling journey over the last three years and I hope to continue to make more. We should be helping one another because even though this is a competitive business, this is also one of individuality and not everyone will have the same features, items to offer or talent.
That is the amazing feature of the business I love. There are so many different personalities and items to promote. Different beauty, different offers and different niches.
You may succeed temporarily by tearing others down or trying to charge them for learning what you taught yourself for free but eventually, it catches up with you. If they become more successful than you, you want to be able to be happy for them and not regret all that time you spent being jealous or teaching them something you didn’t have to pay to learn. You want to be able to say you helped them succeed without having to charge them and arm and a leg to do it.
The bottom line is that this isn’t easy and no matter what, we should straighten another girls crown before the crowd notices.
