What is Direct Selling?
Let me quote from Direct Selling 411
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.Direct sellers are not employees of the company. They are independent contractors who market and sell the products or services of a company in return for a commission on those sales.
How is Direct Selling Different from Traditional Selling?
There are quite a few differences between ‘traditional selling’ and ‘direct selling’, like:
- In traditional distribution method, products/services are sold through retail outlets or company employed sales professionals. But in Direct Selling, products/services are sold through Independent Distributors who are normally happy customers of the same products/services too.
- In direct selling, it’s less ‘selling’ more ‘recommending’. Don’t you recommend products/services you love to the people you know? Do you get paid for it? No! But still you do it. Direct Selling companies pay you to do that.
- The most fascinating feature of Direct Selling is: any distributor can create and train a ever increasing team of distributors to market the products/services & earn commissions from the products/services sold by the entire group! And that gives them the ability to earn Residual Income. That’s why Direct Selling is also called Network Marketing or Multi-level Marketing (MLM).
