Why Direct Sales is Ideal for Women

I know I'm biased towards direct sales but for me I love this business for many reasons.

First, I wouldn't join as a direct sales consultant if I didn't love the products and use them.

Second, direct sales is ideal for women especially for stay at home moms. Moms are already home and because this business is so flexible you can work it part time, occasionally, and put in the hours that work for you while tending to your family.

Direct selling is not a home-based job so there are no deadlines or demands from your superior. For moms already at home, it's ideal because you can do this business online with an hour or two a day. You don't have to do parties or live events unless you choose to.

However, your success is in direct correlation to how much time you invest in your business. You're probably not going to have as much success compared to someone who's hosting parties or putting in more hours building the business.

If you're not a hosting party kind of person because of your family schedule, marketing your direct sales business on the internet is not only viable, but can be very successful.

Why I'm a consultant

Most direct sales friends of mine ended up as consultants because they love the products. Mine is the same along with the option of doing this business online because it works best with my schedule.

Why direct sales is ideal for women

Women are amazing at sharing their favorite products with their friends. I share my love for my company's products through my blog but there are many ways women get the word out about the products they're using.

For some of these women it didn't start out as a business but grew into one organically. And it all started because they fell in love with the products first.

What are the requirements?

There are many direct sales companies with different requirements. With my company, the are no monthly sales requirements so it's ideal for people who may want to start as a product user without worrying about meeting the monthly sales requirements.

It's always a good idea to check with the person or company you're interested in what the requirements are.

What are the costs?

Direct sales business kits are affordable. Most companies in the skin care and beauty that I've seen on average have kits around $99 plus shipping and tax. These kits include a lot of products, catalogs, and a website to start your business right away.

With the great value in these business kits some women sign up to get the products in the kit and enjoy the consultant discounts on future orders.

With this kind of flexibility you understand why I think direct sales is so ideal for women. For me, I love the consultant discount. But there are all types attracted to direct sales. Some are products users and love their consultant discounts. Some are serious business builders as well as very part-time.

A direct sales business is what you want it to be. Of course that doesn't mean they're all the same so know what the requirements are, costs, and so forth before you join one. Some might not be as flexible as others and may have additional costs once you're a consultant.

If you love the products and the flexibility of direct sales, you might find it's ideal for you too.

Making Money With New Direct Sales Companies

Do you love new direct sales companies? It's exciting to think of being one of the first consultants  representing a new company. Imagine being one of those early leaders from Arbonne or Mary Kay.

But is the hype of joining new opportunities as good as it seems? What are the odds of a brand new direct sales company being around after 2 or 5 years? And can you really make money with a new company?

I have some experience in this area because I was part of one and had great success. I loved it but sadly it never took off. After a few years it became an affiliate model. Over the two plus years with the company, I learned some valuable tips.

Plenty of people love joining a brand new company for the reason I stated above. People want to be the first and hate missing out. The idea of being one of the first consultants with the company is exciting.

The downside of new companies is that they're still figuring out products, growth potential, mismanagement associated with the growing pains of launching a new business. These challenges can be a headache for consultants and customers especially if products are frequently out of stock or shipping is slow because lack of staff and so forth.

But if you go into a new venture with these potential challenges in mind you'll be able to manage your expectations and setbacks as well as offer a sounding board to your team.

Build It Fast

First, build your business right away. When it's a new company you won't have the competition with other consultants. Google your company and it's not over populated with other consultants and their  social media presence.

The reality is people switch companies more often than you think so there's always someone looking for a new opportunity. There are many, many reasons why people change companies so be ready to share your business when the opportunity presents itself.

Build An Online Presence

Set up an online presence. It's no secret I love blogging and it's what I'd recommend for all direct sales consultants. If you're like me and don't want to bother people you know with your business, blogging is the best.

I'm not a fan of spamming people on Facebook with the newest opportunity and vice versa so creating your content through blogging will generate interest to your new business.

Build Your Content

Write posts and share your new business. Start building content about your new business right away to get people to your blog and website. You have the opportunity to start building your business at the beginning.

Keep in mind, as quickly as you can build a team with a new company the downside is that if the company has persistent product issues, shipping problems, or other management hiccups these things will eventually affect turnover.

Direct sales already has high turnovers and people won't hesitate to move on to the next, new direct sales business opportunity. And there's always a new opportunity.

If you're set on joining a new direct sales business, be mindful of the growing pains of a new company and the potential challenges. It can be very rewarding to start at the beginning getting to the know the founders and staff.

Whether you can make money or not is up to you. You have the opportunity to be at the forefront but your success is 100% based on your efforts.

Until next time, keep on direct selling.
