Direct Selling is a method of marketing and retailing goods or services directly to Consumers, through personal contact away from permanent retail premises. Direct selling consultants work on their own, but affiliate with a company that uses the channel, retaining the freedom to run a business on their own terms. Consultants forge strong personal relationships with prospective customers, primarily through face-to-face discussions and demonstrations.

In Direct Selling, Direct Sellers earn money by selling high-quality products and/or services and there is no provision that a Direct Seller will receive remuneration or incentives for the recruitment/ enrolment of new participants. The cost of starting as a Direct Seller is zero. A Pyramid/Ponzi Scheme is a multi-layered network of subscribers to a scheme formed by subscribers enrolling one or more subscribers in order to receive any benefit, directly or indirectly, as a result of enrolment, action or performance of additional subscribers to the scheme. The subscribers enrolling further subscriber(s) occupy higher position and the enrolled subscriber(s) lower position, thus, with successive enrolments, they form multi-layered network of subscribers. Such Ponzi Schemes have no legal sanctity in the eyes of laws

Yes – Direct sellers can run a substantial Direct Selling business from their home using channels of internet and telephone as a means of communication, although personal contact does significantly help to grow the business. Direct Selling allows people to work for themselves and to run their own business in a way that fits with their lifestyle.

Direct selling offers important benefits to people who want an opportunity to earn income and build a business of their own, to consumers as an alternative to retail stores, and a cost effective way for business to bring products to market. Consumers benefit from direct selling because of the convenience and service it provides, including personal demonstration and explanation of products, home delivery, and generous satisfaction guarantees.

This question can be simply answered by pointing to direct selling companies operating at the moment, mentioning when they were established: Southwestern (1855),  J.R.Watkins (1868),  Vorwerk(1883), Avon (1886), Kleeneze (1923), Tupperware (1946), Shaklee(1956), Amway (1959), Mary Kay (1963), Oriflame (1967) and Natura (1969). Considering how long these direct selling companies have been operating using the network marketing business model, clearly this is a long-term business.

Beauty, personal care and food supplements together are estimated to generate more than half of the global revenue in direct selling. That being said, all categories that one can think of are making very good use of this channel: Jewelry and accessories, coffee and tea, kitchenware, phone services, financial products, books and toys, to name a few. With the more and more new categories incoming in the developed markets, the total share of cosmetics and nutritional products is lower than the world average.

Direct selling provides an opportunity to individuals to reach very high income levels regardless of what their educational backgrounds and work experience may be. In economic terms, it is a micro-entrepreneurship model. However, one should not expect to get rich quick. Just like it is in any other business, here too, effort, sacrifice and time are required.

There is no direct link between being one of the founding members of a field organization and high earnings. In other words, this does not guarantee a higher income. Looking from another perspective, if this was true who would want to join an organization after a while?

Absolutely! They can work for many years and their businesses can be inherited after they pass way. Many people in US and Europe have been doing direct selling for over 20 years now. This is a career!

Globally, it is estimated that 75% of direct sellers are women and 25% are men. Direct selling can be easily done on a part-time basis. And this characteristic appeals to women very much. There are many organizations where there are much more men than there are women. Being a typical micro-entrepreneurship, this business offers a level playing field to everyone, so it is difficult to say it suits on gender more than the other.

A compensation plan shows how a direct seller will be compensated against meeting certain criteria of success. Some of these plans are quite simple while some are quite complex. The complexity of a compensation plan does not necessarily show it is a solid one.

Some thought it would. However, technology has only enhanced the way people do this business by providing powerful tools to support the activities in the field. The growth of social media and use of various apps has made keeping in touch with the team/downlines/uplines, tracking the growth of the business and providing instant support to newcomers very easy.
