Network Marketing Through Direct Sales

Looking for a solid career to start from home?  Network Marketing is a great way to change your profession and create a great stream of income for you and your family.  Probably the biggest question is what do I market and what products or services are available in the internet marketplace.  This article will touch upon the power of direct sales to move your business forward.

How do you find your niche?

Many Entrepreneurs look to Network Marketing to help them get a product they have created to the marketplace to gain access to potential customers.  However, what if you do not have a product of your own to sell, what do you do to tap into this lucrative business model.

The first step is to sit down and start the research process.  With the advent of the Internet almost anyone in the world can research companies looking to help with the selling process.  Many marketers act as independent contractors and run their own business, many from home, to sell products.  Their income can be derived from commissions on product sales and residual income from their downline or team members.  Commissions, for non multi level marketing efforts, are usually the greatest source of income.  Commissions will vary with distributors, however it is not unheard of to make anywhere from 10% – 50% on the product being sold.

Residual income can become a great source of additional funds for the network marketer.  Essentially residual income comes from people who have purchased your product and depending on the product you are selling will be a team member.  These members form a downline of recruits who will provide income to you for their selling efforts.

Direct Sales

Essentially the scenario presented here represents the direct sales aspect of Network Marketing.  Direct sales efforts depend upon commissions to be the majority of your income.  Multi Level Marketing or “MLM” depends upon your ability to recruit people to sell the product you are representing; this discussion will be for another article.

Both direct sales and Multi Level Marketing are viable ways to earn a legitimate income.  My opinion is that direct sales are a better and more logical approach to earning a respectable income from home.   There are a myriad of services and products you can represent.  It took me close to five months of research to locate a product that I was comfortable with and a company I trusted and respected.  One huge advantage of pursuing direct sales as a career is the ability to build personal relationships in your customer base.  Unlike many retailers, direct marketers build trust and loyalty with their customers and team members who can only enhance you ability to build your business.  Clients, who feel a bond with you and your product, even though something cheaper and flashier may come along, will reward you and your efforts over the long term.

In conclusion, depend upon your gut instinct and pursue the opportunity that excites you and allows you to enhance your life.  Do not let anyone bog you down with negative advice or opinions.  Stay the course and accept the alternative way of creating wealth to the outdated corporate structure.
