Direct Selling, or as I prefer to call it, Product Sharing, is the #1 way women work from home. In fact, over 15.1 million people in the United States are doing it right now. What is it?? According to the Direct Selling As sociation it is:
“Direct selling is the sale of a consumer product or service, person-to-person, away from a fixed retail location, marketed through independent sales representatives who are sometimes also referred to as consultants, distributors or other titles. Just about any product or service can be purchased through direct selling somewhere in the world. Many people think of cosmetics, wellness products and home décor as products that are often sold through direct sales, but add to that countless other product categories including kitchen products, jewelry, clothing, organic gardening supplies, spa products, scrapbooking supplies, rubber stamps and much, much more.”
And in my own words, its sharing a product you use and love with other people and getting paid for doing so!!! For example, when you buy a new sweater, most of us take a picture and tell someone about it. Well the our friends love it, want it, and go buy it. Super great for the company as you just advertised for them and it didn’t cost them a dime! Direct selling companies on the other hand, compensate you for sharing the product you love. They use their advertising money to pay people vs TV ads and Newspapers and Billboards. So in fact they are using that money to give people JOBS!!!!
Can you really make an income doing this??? YES!!!!!!!!! I’ve been doing it for years and have made a full time income. BUT it varies from person to person. You have to devote time and effort and not quit when the going gets tough. Because for many, the going is tough when you first get started.
So how do you get started??? Well first you find a product you would enjoy using and sharing with others, and then you find someone who shares that product and learn more from them! Check out our Work From Home Directory for some great opportunities!
