Direct Selling is an ideal way to start a business of your own and offers many unique opportunities. It's a method of selling goods directly to the consumer. It is usually made face to face - either where a product is demonstrated in the home or a catalogue is left with the customer.
The Growth of Direct Selling
Over the past decade, a steadily growing proportion of the Slovenian population have become attracted to the idea of having their own small business. Not only as an alternative to conventional employment, coping with early retirement or as a way of supplementing a family income, but also for the sheer satisfaction of being an entrepreneur and being rewarded solely on the basis of achievement.
The vast majority of manufacturers or suppliers of consumer goods and services would, were it possible, prefer to deal directly with their retail customers. This is precisely what Direct Selling is all about and why it is a growing sector of the home shopping market.
These opportunities are designed to appeal to men, women and couples across every social and racial group. One of the great attractions of a Direct Selling business is that the commitment is entirely flexible. It can be just a few hours a week or, for some, a full time occupation. It is, for example, a perfect opportunity for women to return to work, as it fits in with their family commitments.
Direct selling only requires a very modest initial investment to start your own business. Direct Selling opportunity offers both the personal satisfaction of creating your own business and a minimal outlay.
Direct Selling owes its continuing success to the thousands of people of all ages and in all walks of life who want to be independent or to have a business of their own - in fact, in 2000, nearly one in five of all Direct Sellers were 50 or over. The earnings that can be expected from a Direct Selling business vary greatly, dependent on the time and effort invested.
