There is a lot of negative press these days about traveling sales crews. Some say they are dangerous. Others say they just rip you off. The NFSA can agree to both of those statements because there are certain traveling sales crews that lend themselves to those types of actions. It is the goal of the NFSA to help establish rules and regulations for traveling sales crews to adhere to. This country’s economic freedom was built upon the sales force of those enterprises. The NFSA believes in that free enterprise system and has feverishly worked to defend the door to door sales industry. Standard lines of communication are imperative in order to keep the momentum of the traveling sales crews operating effectively and ethically.
Messages to NFSA Members
Like any trade organization, the NFSA has members all across the country. Previously it was necessary to send physical paper newsletters to each of the members in order to disseminate information to the companies who employ traveling sales crews regarding new standard practices or even governmental regulations regarding the door to door sales industry. Today they use a different approach. Online newsletters and blogs allow the NFSA to keep in contact with each of its members when they subscribe to new updates on the NFSA website. Therefore, every time a new regulation is approved in a specific state, the members can gain insight on the best way to adhere to those regulations.
This type of communication transfer saves the company time and money and even helps keep the planet cleaner. The writing of the information is the same. It still has to be done by a workforce, but on a much smaller scale. Since the communication is sent through electronic means, there is no reason for a printer to print messages, stuff envelopes, or adhere stamps. The newsletter can be easily written in a short amount of time and then passed on to its members within seconds. Luckily, for each of the members of the NFSA this means that their traveling sales crews can be compliant in a much shorter amount of time.
Messages to Traveling Sales Crew Members
Not only has the NFSA used more “green” methods to communicate with its members but the managers of the traveling sales crews have realized the power of technology and the benefits that it can have on the environment and on its own business practices. Each traveling sales crew member is given incentives in order to complete sales goals. Sometimes getting the word to each of the traveling sales crews members can be a daunting task until recently. Some sales crews managers are employing the texting technology to pass on new information. Most of the crew members and all of the managers have cell phones in order to stay in contact with friends and family. Each crew manager uses this to their advantage to send instant SMS messages to the crew members. Thus, delivering the information instantaneously and directly into the palm of the traveling sales crew members hands.
Staying current with technology is something that the NFSA has found to be efficient and effective. Using blogs and online newsletters make it possible for the NFSA to stay in contact with their members and crew managers use texting as a “green” way to get messages to their crew members. Rest assured that the NFSA hasn’t stopped there. They will continue to look for new ways of increasing productivity and reducing waste. The NFSA is doing their part to reduce the waste on the planet and making the world a better place.
