Choosing The Right Direct Sales Program For

UnCategorized Before we tackle that question, let’s take a look at what Direct Selling really is, and what a Direct Seller really does. If you think you don’t even know what direct sales are, I can bet you a lipstick that you are wrong. Ever hear of a .pany, who, 34 years before women in the US won the right to vote, Mrs. P.F.E. Albee of Winchester, New Hampshire pioneered the .pany’s now-famous direct-selling method, and her name is still honored today in the .pany…Avon. Not only is Avon a direct sales .pany, but so are the following .panies you may have heard of: Mary Kay, Tupperware, Slumber Parties, Pampered Chef, Rainbow, Kirby, getting the idea? My own .pany, Mystickal Incense & More even has its own Direct Sales consultant program (the most .prehesive and beneficial of any candle and bath & body product .pany around). In short, direct sales can best be described as the marketing of products and services directly to consumers in a face to face manner, generally in their homes or the homes of others, at their workplace and other places away from permanent retail locations, even the internet. Direct sales typically occur through explanation or personal demonstration by an independent direct salesperson. These salespersons are .monly referred to as consultants, representatives, reps, independent distributors or independent contractors. So now that you know what it is, how do you choose which one is right for YOU? After right, right now there are well over 500 or so Direct Sales .panies to choose from. Each has their own plan, .pensation, benefits, pros and cons. Some are even scams or illegal pyramid schemes. With all of that in mind, there are several things you need to consider when choosing a great direct sales .pany to work for. First of all, make sure the .pany is not a scam or doing anything illegal. Do some research first. As a direct sales representative, you should NEVER have to pay the direct sales .pany anything – after all it is you who is working for them, and you are trying to earn money from their .pany. With that being said, keep in mind that most (a good majority) of Direct Sales .panies do require that you purchase a starter kit or introductory/promotional materials to get you started. That doesn’t indicate a scam, it is simply necessary to get the "start up" materials shipped to you. But past that point, you should not have to pay anyone anything. Check to see if the .pany has other representatives and ask what their experience has been. Before you actually go "job hunting" however, you should ask yourself a few questions, such as: * How much time to I have to dedicate to this? * How much am I willing to spend on start-up costs? * Am I motivated enough to try to make money by selling products to others? * Am I a good salesperson? * What types of things would I enjoy selling? When you find out the answers to those questions, begin your search. Remember that different .panies require different things, and some are stricter than others. Some Direct Sales .panies won’t even allow you to advertise their products on your own website. Some won’t allow you to even use banner advertising to advertise them. Some .panies, such as Avon, and the other .panies you know by heart, have so many representatives that there are very few customers on the planet that don’t already have their own rep, which makes selling a whole lot harder. Small .panies can be just as beneficial (or a lot more so) than the big brand name .panies. Being smaller, they have less .petition, more potential customers, and have to stand out above the crowd so they offer more to potential consultants. Howeever, before you .mit to a .pany, I highly re.mend making a very small order for yourself before a representative. That way you have tried their products, are sure that you like them and want to represent them, and can honestly tell others about the products from first hand experience. Most Direct Sales .panies include product samples in their starter kits. So now that you know what it is, how it works, and how it can benefit you, go research, research, research and find the right .pany for you! With the right dedication and time, direct sales can be a HUGE boost to your in.e. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
