If you are on any kind of social media, it’s unlikely you can make it through even one day without reading all about how one of your high school acquaintances is making all of their dreams come true thanks to the direct selling company they began working for just a few months prior.
While there is much negativity spread about direct selling companies, in reality, these companies have developed a business model that has worked for decades and will continue to work for anyone driven to sell. Here are some advantages of the direct sales business model that have helped these companies and their representatives find so much success.
Understanding the Direct Selling Business Model
Direct selling companies can offer you an alternative to the traditional 9 to 5 job, giving you a way to make money, but the ability to make that job work around your own personal schedule. People working for these companies pay a fee to get started, then make a commission on the products that they sell. Some of the most well-known of these companies include Mary Kay, Jamberry, Tupperware, DoTerra, and ASEA, all of which have been around long enough to establish themselves as legitimate companies that offer a product consumers want. Like any successful business, they offer a product that fills a need in the marketplace.
