Every new direct seller is told to write a list of the top 40 people they know. It is a proven system of reaching out to everyone you know as you launch your new business.
I like to say “write down the top 100 people you’ve known since kindergarten”!
Either way you get the point!
The Top 40 List
Whether you are talking about the top 40 list as an exercise for your hostess or to launch your business, you should use a form to jog your memory.
A recent student in the Direct Sales Bookings University which is part of the Elite Direct Sales Training Club said:
I’m going through the DSBU 4 Part II. It is very enlightening. Thank you again; your training is great.
I would like to request your Top Forty List form. I know that you have it broken down in different categories of people. I believe yours is better than the one my company has. I was planning on using the one the company provides but may find yours more useful. Thanks, Joan
Actually, Joan’s email made me realize that I do not have a specific form for the top 40 list.
The Cash Flow Show party plan sales training system does include a spreadsheet that would be used as a memory jogger.
I have also created a graphic for this purpose for corporate clients who are starting a new direct sales company of their own.
Sample Top 40 List
This is an example of a top 40 list that was created for the back of the host flier for a corporate client. The finished product included a decorative graphic background as well.

This particular top 40 list was created for a new company that sells electronic cigarettes.
If you work with jewelry, cosmetics, makeup or cooking tools, just add the appropriate categories to your chart.
Inviting everyone you have known since kindergarten to host a show, come to your launch party or become a consultant is a great exercise for the consultant and one you should encourage every host to participate in.
Actually writing down the top 40 list allows you to think of more!
Don’t just keep it in your head and don’t let your hostesses do so either!
Use the form the home office gave you and coach your hostesses to start writing down names.
