STRIVE TOWARDS THE EDGE OF YOUR CAREER IN YEAR OF THE HORSE (2014.03)

Strive towards the edge of your career in Year of The Horse

Although Mr. Ma joined Nu Skin recently, he was very aggressive to expand his career in Nu Skin by searching new potential partners through Whatsapp group chat; approaching them actively; stating that he is recruiting for Company and recommending new partners to purchase TR90 set. Ma hoped to make use of these opportunities to make achievement in his life. Ma showed great identification on the outcomes from TR90. Therefore, he promoted TR90 in an exaggerated way that everyone would get slim by only consuming TR90 without any exercise and standardized eating habit. His customers were surprised at the magic power after having a lesson from Ma about TR90 and they all purchased TR90 from Ma. However, after 90 days, Ma’s whatsapp group was filled with complaining messages because Ma had not coached his mentees correctly with the “3333” eating rule during the consumption of TR90. His mentees found Ma for the unexpected outcomes that they did not get slim after consuming TR90, but, Ma refused to meet his mentees to handle the complaints. When there were more and more complaints from his mentees and Ma did not know how to handle the complaints, Ma just shut down the whatsapp group chat and blocked all the phone calls from them.

 


Analysis
Nu Skin business is people oriented with differentiated products. Nu Skin encourages every business partner to promote Nu Skin business face to face with every new recommended partner. when you introduce Nu Skin to others, you have to present yourself and products to your customers clearly. You must use appropriate channels to approach potential customers. Nowadays, there are some popular channels like Whatsapp, Line and WeChat. Although these communication channels are very popular, it is very hard to control the in-and-out of the group chat within these channels. Also, business partner is unable to understand deeper with the new partners by means of sending messages within the group chat box. Hence, you must be very careful in choosing potential partners with legitimate channels when you start your Nu Skin business.

 

Nu Skin cares about personnel development that it will hold product educational training regularly in order to provide a powerful sales aid for every business partner. We hope every business partner will make use of every chance to have better understanding on the products and other sales aid in an attempt to be an all-round BP without any exaggerated promotion on products and misunderstanding of company information.

 

Every Nu Skin BP must operate your distributorship in an ethical, professional and courteous manner. Apart from promoting the Nu Skin product and business appropriately, you have other responsibilities like to explain to your downline on how to return products or cancel an order; to intervene in any disputes arising between a customer and any of your downline organization. All in all, we hope everyone performs a responsible BP.

 

We are here to bless every business partner with enormous expansion on your Nu Skin business with hunger in understanding the products and execution of your plan. We therefore hope you, all business partners, to care about your customers by listening to their wants and respond to them promptly. If there is any question, you would then actively be a communication bridge between your customers and the company. Moreover, we hope you could help trace the core cause of the problem and assist to help find out the solution with passion. If there is any return or cancellation order, business partner would assist to handle it. Over and above that, we hope you to operate your distributorship with passion and responsibility that you would not escape from problems but to face and solve it positively. If BP escape from the problem and transfer it to be as the company’s sole burden, this would not only let your customers’ faith lost but also damage the brand name, image and reputation of the company.
