I've sold a few things in the past through home party plans. I was a rubber stamping demonstrator for a few years and that was fun but I got tired of hauling around so much stuff! I've also sold Pampered Chef and that was okay but there are a lot of consultants in my area. Years ago I sold for a company similar to Home Interiors and really enjoyed that. I've been looking online for companies that I might be interested in selling for. Do any of you have any suggestions???? Thanks!

Not sure, but I'd start at the direct seller's association website. Not sure of the link, but that's how my friend found her niche selling jewelry.

A few years ago I worked in the offices of a company called Sensaria. I didn't do the selling - we processed the orders - but if I were ever to go that route, I would seriously consider them. They make wonderful natural body products, and have a great philosophy. There's also the appeal of selling renewable products - things that run out and have to be reordered. I only need so many candles or food storage containers, but if I've found the perfect face cream, chances are I'm going to order more when I run out, right?? Just sayin'... Good luck with whatever line you decide on.

I have been with Tupperware for the past 26 years full time. I am an executive director in charge of team development and training. Tupperware has had 10 consecutive quarters of growth and we are now working on the 11th! It is a very exciting time to be part of this company. Fortune Magazine just recognized our product as #3 in the Household goods category. Good Housekeeping has recognized 2 of our products as a "best buy". Ice Tea and Brooke Shields have recently hosting Tupperware parties in Hollywood which brought Tupperware free national print recognition.. PLUS we are an environmental company. Tupperware was "green" before it was cool. Everyone is concerned about the environment and we have the products that are the reusable not the toss away. We also just developed a new line of teas, cookware, spices and towels. We are not "your mother's Tupperware!"

Tupperware allows you to have a team without borders and have lifetime residual income. As you can see, I am passionate about the plan and the product. Check us out! You will not be disappointed.

I will be glad to answer any questions.

As reported recently on MSNBC direct sales is the way to go in these economic times.

Please look at Private Quarters. We have awesome growth in these down times. We are still small enough that you can have contact with the pres. if you need to. www.myprivatequarters.com and leadership is a piece of cake...that is where the real $$ is. No matter what you do, find out the average sale/party...your commission...what it takes to attain leadership and the career plan. With PQ you can earn over $800 as a new consultant with 4 shows. Send me a pm for more info. you go girl! i love direct sales!

Okay, I'll bite...

So, what is direct sales?

Does this mean that you go around to people's homes or get your co-workers to buy your products?


do you sell to businesses, like home depot?

I don't want to burst anyone's bubble and I say go for it if you find the right gig. But be very wary. Many Direct Seller organizations are scams. Not all, but many. But, more importantly, home parties and direct selling all involve discretionary income. In today's climate, most aren't spending on discretionary items.
