Do you by any chance pull up your nose at the mention of Avon? The company is worth $70 billion, with sales last year of over $10 billion. How much did you sell last year?
The secret to their success is surprisingly simple: in a recession, people get laid off. Those folks have time, and need money. That’s when outfits like Avon and Amway pounce. They offer the jobless masses a way to make money and be self-employed.
And they grow like crazy. Through outfits like Avon, Tupperware and May Kay, people with their own direct sales businesses sell around $30 billion per year.
That could be you. Seriously.
Wait! Am I suggesting you’re into multilevel marketing? Not at all. You’re helping individuals get ahead, financially or otherwise. In the past, the primary method for that happened to be multilevel marketing.
But things change.
Online marketing is replacing multilevel marketing in many ways. It’s the new way to offer individuals the chance to sell something to their own customers.
