Direct sales Facebook community management can be discouraging. I’m just going to say that up front. And then I’m going to tell you why being a success with your direct sales Facebook group is about your mindset
, and your every day choices. I learned this from the Elite Suite

You get to choose whether to show up, and be consistent on your social platforms
. And you choose to have a good attitude and keep going, keep trying new things – or not. That’s really the bare bones of a successful Facebook group
. Use good content
, show up daily with a good attitude, and keep showing up whether anyone else does or not. Because eventually they WILL show up, too.
In your own community, you are the leader who is inspiring others to follow your lead. Look at this quote.
“Which do you believe?
Impossible or I’m Possible?”
Which do you believe? Do you believe it’s “Impossible”? Or do you believe “I’m possible”. Do you see others doing community management, and doing it well, and think – “This is possible, for me, too, I just haven’t learned the skills yet.” Or do you complain about the Facebook algorithm
, place blame, and give up before you even really tried? Then cry “Impossible, my community won’t engage me with me!” Because that’s not a Facebook community issue, that’s a mindset battle.
I’m going to tell you about my day yesterday. It started out really really stinky. I’m not going to sugar coat that, because I know you can look at someone ahead of you on the line, and say “Oh, but she doesn’t have issues with… (insert your particular mindset battle here).” Trust me, we all struggle.
Yesterday, someone on my team who was a builder, QUIT. As in walked away from the opportunity entirely, called the company to get out of it, and plans to sell for a competitive product. Yes, my morning stunk. Because – for a short time, I LET IT stink. I got upset, I got mad, and I CRIED.
But then – after a lot of struggle, and an intentional blog post
where I literally put a mindset shift out there saying “Okay, she walked away, because she wasn’t willing to put in the work, even when I laid out the steps for her. BUT here is who I DO want to work with.”, something happened.
Something like Big Magic. In the space of hours yesterday, 3 people enrolled themselves to my team. One quit, yes. But because I kept right on showing up, 3 more walked in. Just went and signed up on my doTERRA website.
Because good online community management is the base of where it happened for me. All 3 people enrolled themselves from being in my doTERRA essential oils Facebook group
. I didn’t have a party, I wasn’t madly following up to recover the lost builder, I just WAS. I was posting as usual, I was SHOWING UP as usual… and in its own time and way, attraction marketing
came through for me when I most needed it. As we’re going into this month, I want you to remember something. Community management isn’t fast, some days it isn’t even fun, and it’s not even easy. Some days you can even scratch your head not knowing what to post!
I get it.
It takes consistency, being brave and showing up as yourself. And it takes work building your sales funnels
to build your group to even have people in there. It’s about putting YOURSELF out there in the arena every single day. Which are you going to say? Impossible, or I’m possible? I say it’s possible, and the Elite Suite
says it is. You’ve got what it takes, love!
Because it IS possible, love. Entirely possible. Would you like to learn about managing your own direct sales community? Join us in the SassySuite private Facebook coaching group
