What is Direct Selling? 
 
Direct Selling is a method of marketing and retailing goods or services directly to Consumers, through personal contact away from permanent retail premises.  
 
Today, Consumers have access to just about any product or service through Direct Selling somewhere in the world. Many people think of cosmetics, cleaning products, nutritional products and homeware as products that are available through Direct Selling. However, there is an ever increasing range of products and services marketed via Direct Selling, either person-to-person, via party-plan or online. 
 
In the ROI, over 27,000 people are involved with direct selling. It is a vibrant, growing industry offering a flexible earning opportunity to all, whatever age, culture, gender or ability. 
 
Working for a Direct Selling company is an ideal way to start a business of your own as it offers tremendous working flexibility.

METHODS OF DIRECT SELLING 
Person to Person 
Usually by prior arrangement or introduction, an explanation or a demonstration is given by a Direct Seller  
to a Consumer 
 
Online 
A Consumer purchases from the Direct Seller through a website, rather than face-to-face 
Party Plan 
Explanation and demonstration of products to a group of prospective Consumers by  
a Direct Seller, usually in the home of  
a hostess who has invited other people  
for that purpose 
 
What is Multi-level Marketing? 
Many Direct Selling companies are organised on multi-level principles. This is where Direct Sellers are given the opportunity to build their own sales teams, in addition to the rewards of making personal sales. In doing so, they are able to receive additional rewards that come from the sales achieved from those they have recruited, trained, helped and motivated.
