The Perfect Direct Sales Business
By Kara Kelso
With hundreds of
direct sales companies out there, how do you choose the right one for
you? Here are a few tips to make sure you choose the right one the first
1. Find your passion
Before you even start looking for the "big money", you need to decide
what type of products interest you. Do you want to improve your health?
Like to home decor items? Love different types of goods? List everything
that you love!
2. Find the business
Take your list you made and seek out those programs that offer these
types of products. Don't join the business yet - right now you are just
making a list of all the companies. Don't worry about two different
businesses that offer the same products, just write them both down.
3. Try out the Products
I'm not saying go into debt buying from all these businesses. Try to
choose from just a few that you would buy from even if you weren't doing
your research. Make sure they are products you are going to
4. Compare businesses
Now that you have tried out the products, check out the details of the
program. Look closely at the retail prices, cost of the kid, and finally
the compensation plan. Ask yourself questions such as "Could I stand
behind this company?", "Is the income possibility there", and "Are the
products what they say they are?".
5. Ask the
Stop by a few message boards and groups to ask the experts what they
think of the businesses you've narrowed in on. Ask lots of questions
about how well the products sell and how good the company's customer
It may take a lot of time to do all this research, but it's well worth
it in the end. Just remember to always look at the products first and
income second. Follow your instinct and you will find the perfect
business for you.
