As you’ll be spending a lot of time with your direct sales business product, or products, a good way to know which business is for you is by how you FEEL about it. The business you choose MUST be one you’re passionate about. If you’re not, boredom will set in.
Another consideration is how much the startup costs are. They need to be affordable to you. Also, keep in mind the amount compared to what you’re going to get for it.
A huge factor in your choice should be what your commission rate will be. You’re not in it just for fun. You want and need to make some decent money in this direct sales business. Don’t choose a business where you work constantly for only a small commission.
Will you be compensated for building a downline? If not, there’s no real incentive for you to try to recruit others into the business. You’ll want a company that rewards you for bringing in others.
Find out ahead of time how much control you’ll have over what you sell. Do they have a set price or can you decide on what you sell it for? Can you choose how you’ll sell you product? You may want the freedom to do these things.
You’ll want to know if any sort of training will be provided by the company or if you’ll just be sent on your way. Most people don’t enjoy flying by the seat of their pants. Company support is important.
Consider these things before making the commitment.
