Why Direct Sales? Direct Sales Benefits!
We recently received an email question from a reader who happened to find the Cash Flow Show website when researching Google using the keyword “direct sales“.
She asked “Why direct sales? Why not a work at home job for a corporation?!”
Why Direct Sales?
The reason why direct sales is different than working at home for a JOB is because when you work for a corporation they are still the boss.
When you work for a company that allows you to work at home instead of coming to an office, you may have some control, but most of the time they establish rules such as daily activities, quotas or even a set schedule that you must work.
Working for a company at home means you still work for them. Everything you do furthers their cause NOT yours.
14 Benefits Of Direct Sales
The direct sales benefits are many but a few that come to mind when asked why join direct sales are as follows:
#1 – It Is YOUR Business NOT Theirs!
Every decision or choice you make is furthering YOUR cause not someone else’s.
#2 – Solid National Branding
You have the benefits of working for yourself but you are not alone. Your company will promote the brand nationally and/or even around the world.
#3 – No Territories
Your business goes where you go. Move to another town and take your party plan business with you. Go on vacation… continue to work your business!
#4 – Not A Pyramid Scheme
Direct sales is a viable business model that is validated by quality products and worldwide associations and multi-million dollar companies. It is NOT a pyramid scam.
#5 – Ongoing On The Job Training
The nature of the business model is to support one another. Training is provided by the company and fellow distributors at no cost to YOU for as long as you are with the company!
