Direct selling has become an increasing interest to the Millennial generation. For those of you who may not know, Millennials (also known as Generation Y) are the group of individuals following Generation X, meaning they were born after 1980 and reached young adulthood around the year 2000. Millennials were brought up using digital technology and mass media. Recent studies show that Millennials are leaning more towards entrepreneurship as opposed to working for someone else to achieve more freedom in their lives. Studies show that Millennials are ready now more than ever to get started on their entrepreneurial endeavors and are a popular generation to use digital communication and media tools. With that being said, there is no question why direct selling is an appealing field for these young professionals to be attracted to. Direct selling offers the freedom they desire and is growing to be more and more digital with communication as technology advances.
Millennials bring a refreshing attitude to the direct selling industry. Being that they are younger and generally more in-tune with the technological advances and communication methods, they develop new and innovative techniques to reach out to their prospects, along with being ambitious and eccentric; they add to the “hip” factor of the industry and help effectively attract other young outgoing individuals such as themselves to join in as well. Millennials offer the skills and tools to help the direct selling industry grow at a faster rate. Millennials are opening the window to make a positive change in an industry that is known for being traditional. They are the key to tapping into the disruptive technology of social media and how it impacts buyer’s decisions.
Besides the benefits the Millennials offer the direct selling industry, the direct selling industry has a lot to offer this generation as well. As mentioned earlier, direct selling offers Millennials the much needed time freedom they desire, along with allowing them to be their own bosses and have more control over their incomes. This industry is providing the platform to breed a generation of hungry entrepreneurs who can enjoy immediate gratification with commission based earning models and compensation plans. Talk about enjoying the fruits of your labor, when in traditional “work for the man” jobs that most Millennials jump into don’t show an adequate return on effort for years, in most cases.
