Is Direct Selling for you?

Whilst the majority of people are happy working for someone else, it is safe to say that there are those among us who dream of being our own boss and escaping the rat race. We no longer have to work 9-5 to make ends meet and if you do require the safety net of being an employee there is nothing to stop you running your own part time business alongside your main employment.

The most popular modern day way of earning a second income or subsidising your income is through Network Marketing also known as Direct selling or MLM ( Multi Level Marketing ). Gone are the days where Network Marketing  has a bad name and is referred to as a pyramid scheme, don’t get me wrong there are still those companies / consultants out there, mentioning no names who's marketing methods used leave a lot to be desired. This will occur in an industry and is representative of the minority only.

Nowadays network marketing is more about promoting you business online using Social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and other net based platforms. Whilst most Direct Selling companies still offer party plan incentives you can actually run your business entirely online without the need to interact face to face. Being old school I still like to interact occasionally with fellow humans and promote my products and business opportunity to family, friends and work colleagues if I feel that they would benefits from what I am selling/promoting.

Traditionally Network marketing involved targeting friends and family to the point where they would hide when they saw you pulling up in their drive or conveniently forget to invite you family events for fear of you turning it into a sales pitching or recruitment event.

You no longer need to go from door to door promoting the latest product or handing out brochures, unless you particularly want to .
