Direct Sales?! EEEK! You’ve decided you’re going to do it. Your friends seem to be having so much fun and they are making money!
There are so many direct sales companies out there, how do you even begin to narrow it down to one?
Start with products
Are you a health nut? Do you love jewelry? Clothing? Skin care junkie? Candles? Cooking? Crafts? You get the idea. Chances are, whatever your “thing” is, there is a direct sales company or 1o that you can join. Try out some products and see which ones you are absolutely crazy about!
Do your research
I’m not just talking about a google search on companies. Often times, there will be that one terrible post at the top usually from some disgruntled customer or most likely consultant who is so mad that she wants everyone to know about it. So many people are drawn to the negativity, that it ends up at the top of google. Don’t let this be a deal breaker! Dig deeper. Go to the DSA (direct selling association) See how long the company has been around. If it’s been at least 5 years, that’s a good sign.
Are they in debt? It’s comforting to join a company that is in the black.
What kind of training and support is in place? There is a lot to learn when you first start out, and you want to make sure you are not on your own out there. The great thing about this business is you can earn while you learn! Your learning curve will be much shorter if there are leaders and resources available.
You want to make some money, right? So make sure you understand the compensation plan. You don’t need to spend too much time on every little detail, but at least know the gist. Like, how often do you get paid? Is it on a debit card, paycheck, or does it go into your bank account.
Choose your sponsor wisely..
If she is your BFF- well then lucky you! This business is a blast when you get to work with friends. You just want to make sure that whoever you choose, is someone you respect. This is the person that you will want to go to when you have questions, or just need someone to talk to about goals, training, worries, or dare I say- disappointments? She will also be your biggest cheerleader and by your side for your success! Imagine walking the stage with your bestie!! (I imagine it all the time)
Here comes the fun part! Choose your kit and sign up!
