What is Direct Selling?

Have you heard of Tupperware, Pampered Chef, or Avon? These are all direct sales companies.  Anyone can sign up  to be an independent sales representative for a direct sales company.  Direct sellers work for themselves, not the company, so you set your own schedule and are paid a percentage of your sales.

Home parties are the most typical way that consultants  share and sell the products.   Women invite family and friends over for a party and share the products of the company they are hosting.  The hostess receives some free or discounted products, and the consultant can book more parties with the people at the party.  Online parties are also becoming very popular, and some consultants do very well with this.

Social media is another way that women have found to build a very lucrative direct selling business.

Direct sales is very popular among moms of all ages because it is a way for them to connect with other moms and create new friendships.  Women need this one-on-one time with other women without the kids!  It’s nice to take a break once in a while from the hustle and bustle of being a mom.

It’s also a great way for women who are now “empty nesters” to meet with other women.
