Over the past twenty years, Direct Selling has transformed into a very diverse career field. The Direct Sellers Association DSA shares a descriptive, 2 minute video about the Direct Selling Retail Channel. There are many aspects to look at before jumping into action. The following questions are far from the only ones to think about, but it is a great start.
First, which BUSINESS characteristics might appeal to you?
Is it a party plan where you you share products/services in a group setting? Is it a person-to-person strategy where you utilize personalized approaches? Is there inventory to maintain? How are deliveries made? Is it virtual?
Second, which PRODUCT characteristics appeal to you?
Do you use a favorite product? Are you curious about a product? Is there a product or business guarantee? Is the product/service consumable?
Third, what pre-requisites do you need to start the business?
What is the enrollment kit cost? Do you have time to save up? Can you start right away? How do you enroll? Who will you sign up with? Is there on-the-job training?
If you think you are ready to join the millions of Americans involved in Direct Selling, I applaud you. Here are 156 Direct Seller companies that are part of the DSA. It is a great place to start researching. I only ask you to be wary of your Google research. Know who is writing the article and what purpose and intent it has. Are they a disgruntled ex-seller who thought it would be a get-rich quick business? Is it the CEO of a company bragging on itself? Is it a beauty site that is actually getting paid to review a product? Is it a top 10 or 100 list based on facts? Is the resource trusted?
Good luck on your exciting journey to make a change in your life. I will be sharing more business tips in future articles, and you can subscribe to receive notifications via email. Here's to you and your new challenge!
