5 Top Tools for Your Direct Sales Business

{this post may contain affiliated links}

I've been in direct sales for about 3 years now, so I figured I'd share my everyday business tools with you! There are plenty of resources out here to market your Direct Sales businesses but these are just five that make my life so much easier.

I'm going to be starting a new series here at Love, Christin. #MonSlay! I will share some tips for your Direct Sales business. I won't over do it, maybe once a month I'll have a post up for you. My goal is to save you time and headache with some things I've learned in my years as a Direct Sales Boss.


This application is only a one time charge of $3.99. THE BEST $3.99 SPENT! I use this for mostly every graphic that I make. You can crop each image as needed for different social media needs. Even a Facebook cover ya'll, brilliant! Turn your words into a beautiful image that you can brand yourself with! Everything in the picture below is from WordSwag. The background, quote and watermark!

I also just discovered Canva. Y'ALL GAME CHANGER! Between words swag and Canva, my life is complete!

Social Media  

You've already got all the accounts you need, why not make them work for you! Just like I have a blog Facebook page, to share my links, I have a Facebook page for both of my businesses. Did you know you can have multiple Instagram accounts?! Leave it to me just realize this after 5 years of changing my account name about a billion times. Anyways, Using these social media accounts to interact with your customers and followers will help them get to know you. The online version of you! Hashtags are a very good way to get your name out there to the entire world. I suggest using hashtags on every platform of social media. #momprenuer #bagsbychristin #lipsandbags #monslay #igdaily #igers #twitterdaily

A Good Camera

I have struggled with this for so long. I had a Canon, and sold it because it became a hassle to take pictures, upload them, download to this website that could possibly break down in two weeks, open up my laptop, use this and that app. I stopped all the madness and made things very simple. I used my phone. That's right... right now I use my mom's iPhone 8+. Yes, every time I see my mom, I take all of my pictures that I can think of. The point here, is to have good images. If you don't have time - there are other great resources to buy images, like a friend of mine, She even shares some freebies when you sign up for her email subscription!
