As a direct seller, it is your responsibility to connect with your audience in a genuine, honest manner when selling your product. It is necessary for your potential distributors to trust your sales pitch in order for you to be successful in the direct selling industry. Often times, companies who appear as “direct sellers,” can actually be a scam, known as the “Pyramid Scheme,” in which sellers illegally attempt to defraud you. Thus, it is important to know the difference before you agree to your purchase and make sure the direct seller is following the DSA (Direct Selling Association) Code of Ethics.
1. You are required to spend a substantial amount in order to become an independent consultant. Oftentimes, sellers make their consumers pay a large amount upfront as they rely solely on their purchase as their income in this business. Be very cautious if you are asked to pay a lot upfront, as many times these pyramid schemes collapse, thus sellers attempt to take advantage of their consultants before this happens.
2. The company does not have a return option. It is likely that companies who are out to scam you require you to purchase a large amount of inventory to be sold. Beware. The DSA Code of Ethics requires direct selling industries to reciprocate approximately 90% of the original cost of your unsold inventory.
3. Sellers boast and assure high profits in consultant’s near future. If a seller seems overly optimistic about your “guaranteed” success, this could very well be a scam. Think realistically when considering your options on becoming an independent consultant. These types of sellers tell you what you want to hear for their own benefit, not always yours. Do your research before making any commitment to avoid losing a significant amount of money.
Direct sales can be very rewarding if taken the right repercussions. Carefully consider these risks listed above before committing to a direct sale. If done the correct, ethical way, you will have the opportunity to earn extra income, have your own flexible hours, and will allow you the reward of helping others, while also benefiting yourself and your family. If you set your goals high, you can achieve great success through the direct sales industry.
