Does anyone have any tips for getting new customers. I sell scentsy which is a direct sales/home party type product. I was wondering if car decals have worked for you, or other ways to get new customers. I have hit a slight wall. I have gone through friends and family members and have only one or two more possibilities for parties.

Do you sell at fairs or conventions? Do you talk to everyone about your business, even strangers? I am shy and the product I sell you only use in your home pretty much, so people only see it/smell it when they visit me, so no way to really strike up a casual conversation about it.

They are coming out with new scented stuffed animals in the fall so I am getting one for my kids to carry around when we go out. Hopefully that will help, maybe someone will ask about it?? I obviously won't carry it when they aren't with me though..LOL

Buy or sell safe scents for your home!! Check out Scentsy!! Start your own business for only $99.

I'm into direct selling/network marketing myself. I've been marketing the business not the product. I use internet, blog and facebook ad to generate leads. And duplicate my upline and follow my company system. I read books recommended by my upline, I google to find resources about network marketing business, about my company and also to find blog of the people that do the same business. HTH
