If you are visiting this blog you might be interested in having more funds in your life. Are you interested in supplementing your current income? Are you looking at pitching the full-time job? Maybe you are retired and looking for something purposeful to do with your spare time. If any of these apply to you, or you have your own special reason for looking for more funds, then let’s look at few traditional ways to supplement income and compare them to a very new concept.
I remember growing up my mother taking me with her to a Tupperware Party. Selling at home parties was very popular in the 50’s and 60’s and there are some companies that continue to reach customers with that business model. It is a low-cost way to start you own business. Today a few products you can sell at home parties are candles, jewelry, and sex toys. You do have to recruit friends and family to host parties, you take orders and then deliver the merchandise. To me the entire process seems like a lot of hassle.
Direct Catalog Sales
Another business model is selling one on one with a catalog. Avon would be a good example of this. You find people who are interested in your products. They shop form your catalog, you process the order and deliver the products to your customer. It is not uncommon once you develop a relationship with someone to get repeat orders. Getting out there and developing a customer base and delivering inventory can be a bit of work.
Then next home based business model is Multi-Level Marketing, also known as MLM. Mona Vie, is a company that was huge MLM. Typical with most MLMs there one key product, which frequently highly priced. The main focus is recruiting distributors whose main job is to recruit more distributors. This is often awkward and requires lots of phone calls and meetings. There is little focus on building a customer base and little if any customer service. This business model can be lucrative but does require a lot of commitment and effort. I know I have tried a few!
Social Media Retail Marketing
So far none of this options looks appealing to me, how about you? If you would like to look at a new method of making income from direct sales, Social Media Retail Marketing may be of interest to you.
I was not familiar with this concept until a few weeks ago when a friend sent me a Face Book message and tagged me on a Face Book post. If you have not spent much time on Face Book these terms may seem strange to you. There were new to me however, it is easy to learn what they are and how to work with them. If you know how to turn on a computer you can do this.
Social Media Retail Marketing is simply referring people to buy products on a web site. You can tell a friend about the site either when you speak or on Face Book. Actually, you can simply have business cards printed, with your referral code, like this https://womenjustwannahavefunds.com/m3p. This gives your friend $10 off their first order. If they decide to go to the site and buy products you now have a customer. You then get a commission when anyone shops using the referral code you give them. They will then get a code and repeat the process. It is very simple and something you most likely do when you find a product you like.
This concept did evolve from the Multi-Level Marketing(MLM) business. It is however very different in many way. I hope you are open to look at the big differences between the two and how is approach to marketing benefits everyone involved.
Comparing Social Media Retail to MLM
In the MLM system the entire business was driven by reciting distributors. Typically, the company has one customer for every distributor. When you decided to “join” your focus was to get others to become distributors. Many people who started in the business soon found the had joined the NFL, No Friends Left, after spending time recruiting. In Social Media Retail Marketing, you do not have to become a distributor, you can be the customer. In this model they average 20 customers to every distributor. In one company, you can still earn 42% commissions, when you give your referral code to friends. There is no “signing up”, no meetings, no pressure to get others to “sign-up”.
There are three ways to interact with the company. You can be a customer, buy high quality products at a great value. You can refer others to the site and get commissions. If in the end, you want to build a team you have the opportunity to do that too. There is however the potential to earn money without asking anyone to “join”.
Frequently with MLMs, there is one product, manufactured by outside the company that is very high priced. In Social Media Retail Marketing, there is a web site with multiple, high quality, competitively priced products. They are always looking at new products to add to their site. There is no monthly commitment. You buy what you want and need when you want and need it. No boxes of product piled up in your garage.
The Next Level
You can follow the link to a company I believe has a lot of potential, https://womenjustwannahavefunds.com/m3p . Have a look at the site and see what you think. Their focus is on “clean living” products. They are high quality and priced well within the range you most likely spending. This link will give you $10 off your first order and if you like what you see you can send a friend to the site with your referral code.
