There are many skeptics of the direct selling industry. It is important to educate yourself on the industry and not be duped by misleading companies who are out to scam you out of your money or sell false promises. Being well informed about the industry will help you better understand how it works and work in your benefit as it will aid in your understanding as to why your organization is legitimate and ease the mind of your prospects as well.
Direct sales organizations usually have an independent representative that sells products or services for the company and receives a commission for the sales. Basically, direct selling is one person selling or promoting a product or service to another person. This can be done face-to-face, over the phone, or online.
Direct sales companies are usually referred to as multi-level marketing companies. The companies are referred to as multi-level organizations because the independent representative that is selling the products or services is compensated for their sales on multiple levels. The representative is compensated for their sales along with the sales from their recruits and their recruits’ recruits and so on. So there are multiple levels of compensation possible. Other benefits can include chances to win trips, cars, bonuses, and other special prizes.
You should be aware that there are some companies that do not have your best interest at heart. Often referred to as “pyramid schemes”, some companies are looking to defraud you. Any company that requires you to purchase a set amount of product up front and/or on a timely basis with no return option, should set off a red flag that this may not be a legitimate company. Also companies that only compensate based on recruiting others rather than focusing on promoting the value and selling their products or services and do not compensate based on sales are usually not legitimate multi-level marketing companies.
Direct sales can be a very rewarding industry and offers the opportunity to earn extra income, gives you the time freedom of being your own boss, allows you to network with people, and gives you the reward of helping others. Although direct selling hours are flexible, they are not optional if you really want to make a good living in this industry. There is no pre-determined time increments that will definitely get you the income you are looking for, just know that you will have to work hard to reach your goals. If you want to succeed, you must stay consistent and commit to the opportunity and treat this with the seriousness of any other full-time job.
