Hi, I'm Justin!
I’ve been an entrepreneur just like yourself for several years now, with experience in both small business and large corporate settings. Let’s just say I’ve been a ‘test pilot’ by failing in my many ventures for you, so you don’t have to.
Throughout my entrepreneurial journey, I was constantly researching different marketing tactics and better ways promote my businesses and grow my overall revenue.
However, I noticed there wasn’t an easy step-by-step guide or information that gave me truly actionable take-aways that I could apply immediately in an ethical and value-driven way.
At Smart Marketing Vibes, I provide content that gives true value and actionable steps for entrepreneurs, as well as one-on-one consulting by partnering with individuals just like yourself.
The only expectation I have is that you take action, execute at the highest level, and truly drive to give your all.
THE QUICK STORY ON HOW VALUE CHANGED SMALL BUSINESS
The Beginning of SMV
Everywhere I looked, I couldn't find a solution. In most resources I stumbled across, the focus was on increasing to a certain number of followers or customers.

This was a GAME-CHANGER!

Direct sales refers to the art of selling products face-to-face and it’s away from the location of the retail store. This is done through but not limited to presentations and catalog sales. Some companies may give a sales person a start pack which comes at a small fee. Jamberry is a typical example which gives away starter parks for their sales people.
Are you a direct sales consultant trying to get your business off the ground? If your answer to this question is yes, then there's one thing you should know- the success of any business endeavor largely depends on your ability to build harmonious relationships with clients. Disregard to this fundamental truth is the cause of more failures in direct selling than all the others factors combined. In the business of direct selling, personal relationships are everything. You have to constantly be on your toes to ensure that you deliver top notch customer service.
