So, what’s the big deal about direct sales?
You see the consultants at the State Fair selling their products and their posts on Facebook. You’ve been invited to the parties or know someone who has. But if you’ve never experienced a party or don’t know a consultant personally, you might not quite get what all the fuss is about.
One of the big perks of shopping with direct sales consultants is the personal customer service. Your consultant is there not just to provide you with products, but also to support you when you may need it. There are many other perks, but don’t just take my word for it. Here are what customers are saying about this great alternative shopping experience.
“I love to shop from other direct sales associates because I like to support other self-employed businesses and keep my money in our communities.”
“It’s fun to have help with party planning, without having to hire a party planner!”
“I love the quality. Most of the purchases I have made through direct sales are higher quality than store purchases. I also love the trusted recommendations. When I trust my consultant, I only have to shop one place to make my order. I don’t have to comparison shop or search for reviews. I trust the recommendation of the consultant.”
“I love the personalized recommendations, host rewards, quality products, and supporting local consultants.”
“Shopping local means that I am supporting one of my neighbors, and good neighbors is what it’s all about.”
“The people in direct sales join for a reason, and I feel like I’m helping them accomplish their goals, instead of increasing the bottom line for a chain. It’s one-on-one individualized/personalized customer service.”
The perks aren’t just on the customer side. Consultants have some great perks as well!
If you’ve ever been thinking about starting your own direct sales business, here are what some local consultants love about being direct sales reps:
“I love the flexibility that it offers to spend time with my family and the ability to be independent.”
“I like the wide range of people you meet and the fun of partying while you work.”
“I love the flexibility to choose how much or little work I want to do. It adapts to a variety of lifestyles, so it’s up to you to decide if you want it to be a career or a hobby.”
