Are you sitting in front of your computer looking for a way to make money again? Wanting to find the top direct sales opportunities to choose from?
Didn’t you do that yesterday on your smartphone?
Let me throw something out here to think about.
Now is a very good time to join a direct sales opportunity even if the thought of direct sales is not something you have never thought of in the past.
In her Huffington Post blog article “It’s Time to Take Second Look at the Direct Selling Industry” Bobbie Wasserman wrote about the ‘gig economy‘, a phrase I had not heard of, but completely understand.
Ways To Make Money
Never before has there been so many opportunities to make money providing a service or performing an action. You could think of them as performing a one-time gig or even creating recurring income.
Doing things like…..
– make money driving for Uber or Lyft
– rent out a room in your house using Airbnb
– sell something on Craigslist or eBay
– write articles on Hire Writers, or Crowd Content
– do just about anything for $5 at Fiverr.
– be a copywriter for businesses ……
and so much more it is amazing!
How About Joining An MLM Company?
MLM, or network marketing, is part of the direct selling industry. In a blog post ‘Direct Selling A $250 Billion Industry‘ Business For Home is explaining why they think direct selling is a larger industry than even the confirmed revenue figures show.
$250 Billion is ‘Huge’ as Donald Trump would say. MLM companies, small business owners, and sales reps are making a lot of money in direct sales.
There are over 10,000 direct sales companies. Many of them have annual revenues of under $100 Million Dollars and get very little exposure like the big boys do.
According to Business For Home, there are 24 companies with annual revenues of $1 Billion or more. Amway again leads the way at $9.5 Billion in 2015. They have 145 companies with annual revenues of $100 Million or more. I remember reading an article a couple of years ago where that number was around 75.
Why the increase?
People are shopping more online and you can now do direct sales without leaving your home. This makes it possible for anyone regardless of their current situation to make money selling things online.
It Is Easy To Get Started
There is no easier way to get started than joining a direct sales company! You can do this in two primary business models.
1. Affiliate marketing.
2. Network marketing.
In affiliate marketing, you make most of your money doing your own sales. There are some 2-tier programs where you can recruit new affiliates and make money on their sales as well.
Amazon has annual revenue of over $107 Billion, They have an affiliate program as well as a Fulfillment By Amazon or FBA, People make money with Amazon in one way or another every day and their revenue is not even reflected in the $250 Billion number.
In network marketing, you make money on your own sales and by building your own sales network. You can earn money when products are sold several levels deep in your downline.
My Choice: Top Tier Big Ticket Opportunities
There is another category emerging that I am involved in. I call it ‘Top Tier Business Opportunities’ selling big-ticket products.
TiDom is the best company in this category in my view.
You earn thousands on personal sales. You also earn money in pass-up sales and on your downline when you are at a higher purchasing level than they are in the business.
TiDom sells digital products as does, Pure Profit Pro, MOBE, and others. The company makes money on membership fees or annual admin fees. For TiDom that is $497 a year.
Empower Network used to make money holding events such as rallies as well. However, EN just filed for bankruptcy so it remains to be seen how much longer they will be in business. But this company has scam people by selling high ticket training that has nothing to do with online marketing. You can see why here.
Because in this business model 100% of the commissions are passed up you cannot get an accurate annual revenue figure on TiDom and others. There is a trend for people who want to focus on selling to get into one of these companies…..
And why not?
Would you rather earn $2k on one sale or $20 on an ebook sale or a bottle of vitamins?
One thing that does hold someone back from getting into a top tier direct sales business is the cost. Most of these have a yearly administration fee as well as you have to buy the product to be able to sell it.
In TiDom it is $497 for the admin fee and the average product purchase to start is $3500. This means you will be at $4K to get started.
These are often referred to now as digital franchise opportunities. When you look at it that way this isn’t bad but compared to $0 starting in affiliate marketing to sell ebooks on Clickbank it does keep more people away.
In my view, this is a good thing because you do not have near as many competitors chasing the same customer. Top Tier Businesses are a micro niche this way!
Direct Sales is going to continue to grow in 2016 and beyond! There will be new opportunities in big-ticket sales and even new ways to make money that has not even been thought of today.
This is a very exciting time to make money online in direct sales!
