Building your business - tips & tricks

Want to know the best way to start your own natural skincare business? Start learning today with our guide below!

WELCOME

Firstly, congratulations on your first step - the initiative of starting your own business.

Starting your own business does not have to feel like an episode of ‘Dragons Den’ or ‘The Apprentice’!

When you join Dr Botanicals as an Ambassador you get your very own Success Manager to work with you; think of them as your very own Dragon. Our Success Managers are experts in Direct Selling and you can reach out to them whenever you want. Their time is your time, and they are here to make you, and your business, a success.

However, make sure you remember that this is your business, and the start of a new life for you. You are your own boss, you get to choose the hours you work and how and what you want invest in your business.

We know a little bit about running a business, and what we can say with over 20 years experience, is that it does take a lot of hard work. The more time you invest in your business, the bigger it will be and the more successful you will be.

The biggest tip we can give you after hearing advice from a plethora of people from different schemes is - you have to push yourself. Go out of your comfort zone (safely though). For example if you're at a craft fair or show and you’ve got some of our wonderful products to show, then make sure you’re introducing yourself to people. You never know who you’re going to meet or talk to; compliment people, ask them where they are form, how they got here today.

We want you to love our products as much as we do - they smell devine, have amazing natural ingredients and are formulated to suit each unique skintype.

That’s why here at Dr Botanicals, we are here to support you - your success is our success.
