Do you think that you can’t “sell” anything? Well think about it, the last time you had a good meal from a restaurant did you tell anyone? When you watched a good movie did you tell anyone the name of it? Perhaps even recommended the theater? What about the clothes or accessories that you wear do you proudly name the designer, brand and even the place where you purchased it? Then think about when you want someone to go with you someone where or try something you have tried… What is all this leading up to? Well guess what, you have been selling!
You have been selling other peoples ideas, creations and even your agenda without even realizing it.
Most people automatically think of selling as the “pushy” person at the store trying to spray you or give you something that you don’t want. Or perhaps the used car salesperson that is trying to sell you a lemon.
Those two scenarios provide the worst example of selling, however, the process of selling is actually the foundation of everyone’s life. Nowadays we have so many options that we have to be somewhat “sold” on a idea to take advantage of it.
So back to my original question why join a Direct Sales Company?
Direct Sales Companies are basically companies that serve as the wholesaler of a product that allows you to sign up as a distributor/consultant. The sign up process allows you to purchase a “starter” kit which can range from prices as small as $25 and as much as $500. These “starter” kits contains a sampling of the products that are offered by the company. This allows you to experience the products, and also showcase them, and possibly have your first home party if you choose. The “starter” kit most likely includes business tools as well, such as catalogs, order forms and invitation to parties and hosting/joining opportunity brochures. Most companies are also now providing websites for prices ranges from $10 to $50 a month. The website allows you to market online and also have customers bypass you and place orders themselves on your website.
Direct Sale Companies have a compensation plan that will define how the you get paid. There are different types compensation plans that direct sale companies use. The company that you choose will outline your sale requirements and other incentives that will explain how you earn money.
This post just touches the surface of explaining direct sale companies. However, the advantages of joining a direct sales company is that the investment small and you get supplies to get your business up and running in no time. Also the kits usually includes products that can be used by the consultant/distributor without an abundance of inventory being held.
The fun part is choosing a direct sales company! Stay tune as I profile various companies.
