Know your product
Make sure you know all about your product and actually make sure to be a product of the product. The best way to know about any product is to actually use it. You don't want to just endorse anything out there. Don,t try to sell something that you would not buy. You have to have some passion in what you are selling, and make it your business to remember some testimonies from other consultants in your business. Post some the testimonials on your site or blog. Use these tips when you are in your social media networks like (myspace, facebook).
Know your Compensation Plan
You have to know how you get paid. You wouldn't start a job and not know exactly how much you get paid. So make sure you know how to explain your new compensation plan. When you go shopping, you would buy from the guy who knows about his product, than someone who wants you to buy but can't explain it. This is also another good checkpoint to start adding all the questions you can come up with about your comp plan, and make a list to always refer back to.
