Sales: What Are Filler Advertising Packs?
I am often
asked "What are filler ad packs?" by other Direct Sales Consultants. Filler
Ad Packs are also known as Filler Advertising Packs but for the sake of this
article, we will use the common term of Filler Ad Packs.
Direct Sellers started making up Filler Ad Packs a few years ago as a means
to market their Direct Sales Businesses.
Let me explain what they are and then give you a few ideas on what you can
do to make your own creative filler packs.
Filler Ad packs are little zipper close bags measuring approximately 3
inches by 5 inches in size. Some people do use non-zipper close bags but
then you will need a ribbon, staple, or other item to close your bag. Once
you make up several of your little Filler Ad Packs, you will want to find
other Direct Sales consultants to swap Filler Ad Packs with. That consultant
will hand out your Filler Ad Packs at her home parties and with her customer
orders and you will do the same with your customers.
It's a win-win situation for both consultants involved as it is getting your
business information out there to new people you might not of reached on
Enclosed in the little bags are a few things such as:

It doesn't matter what type of Direct Sales Company you are with, there is
always some type of item that you can use to create your own Filler Ad Pack.
Here are some creative ideas to get you started.
