What’s the Commitment?

Doing a TV Show is a commitment. A commitment to elevate your platform. A commitment to make your content and message to your audience a priority. As such, it will take some time. But, it does NOT have to take up tons of time. Our recommendations:

  1. If you have a monthly show, we suggest that you shoot your tv show footage and edit your show over a 1 or 2 day period.
  2. If you have a weekly show, we recommend that you shoot your tv show footage over a 1 or 2 day period for the entire month – all 4 weeks. Then have you/your editor spend a day or two editing.

It’s all about organizing the show into your schedule and life in a way that works best for you. And we are standing by to help you come up with that plan.

  3. Hire a camera-man and shoot in your home or on-site

What We’ve Found: An expensively produced show doesn’t necessarily bring any more viewers than an inexpensively produced show.

  1. What matters is great content
  2. What matters is consistent branding

Are there any guidelines for hosting a TV Show?

We created DirectSales.TV so you could expand your platform, inspire your team, and reach new audiences. Your show gives you an incredible opportunity to show off your brand and fabulous personality while providing valuable information, training, insights to your audience. This audience is not just an audience familiar with direct sales – it’s stay-at-home-moms, existing entrepreneurs and others interested in learning more about the direct sales profession. So create a show that you will love to host. Create a show that people will love to watch. Provide value and have fun doing what you love… inspiring others. Afterall, people do business with people they like and respect.

These mandatory guidelines will ensure the success of your channel:

  1. Don’t use your platform to cross-recruit
  2. Never defame another company or representative. When we support each other, we all rise.
  3. Always know, respect and follow your company’s policies with regards to conduct, product placement, and sales guidelines.
  4. Remember to create content that gives value to your potential customers and partners. If your show is a “sales pitch,” people will tune out.
