Your schedule will likely include doing the dishes, some house work or errands, an hour working on your business and best of all time to play with your child.

How to Choose the Right Direct Sales Career For You

The question many people who are interested in starting a direct sales business have is "How do I know which one to choose?" Here are a few tips to help you make the right choice for you.

  • Imagine having time to play with your childrenWhat types of products do you enjoy using yourself? What do you feel strongly about?
  • For example; if you enjoy cooking, if are you concerned about the environment or your family's health, then you'll most likely enjoy selling these types of products more than you would something else. If you feel strongly about certain issues, for example being green you'll want to know if the company supports your issues and concerns.

  • Is the company, including those who will be your sponsor and upline helpful and supportive to those new to the business?
  • You can find this out by seeing how much information that's available to those interested in joining, but don't stop there. You'll also want to talk to a representative or potential sponsor and ask them lots of questions. This way you'll get a feel for how well they will work with you should you join them. Another thing you can do is to call the company directly and ask questions about their direct sales training. Sometimes direct sales teams are great, but the company itself won't always have information available for their consultants which will makes it more difficult for you to grow a business.

  • What are the costs involved?
  • You'll need to determine the amount necessary to not only purchase your starter kit, but also how things work if you need to return items or order more products. Will you be required to carry an inventory, do you only order from the company when someone places an order with you or can you do both?

  • Are there certain quotas or ordering requirements you must meet?
  • If so, you'll want to ask yourself if can you meet those quotas and how will you meet them?

  • What marketing materials will be available to you?
  • What does the company provide you, and also what are the rules should you want to create your own materials to promote your business? Some companies will not allow you to have a website or create business cards unless they have certain things on them. Others won't allow you to use their logos or names on any outside promotional material.
