Why Choose Direct Sales?

by WritingSharon

Why do people decide to start a direct sales business? Here are some of the more common reasons you may find.

Many people are familiar with direct sales, or party plans, at least in regards to going to a party, buying product, and having the consultant encourage them to join the company.  But many people do not know about the benefits of joining and building a business.  If you are a person who is intrigued but doesn’t know if direct sales are going to be a good fit for you, here is some information to help you.

Product at a Discount

One of the biggest reasons to join a company is to get a discount on your personal product.  You may not be interested in doing parties but if you are buying every month or buying a few hundred dollars worth every couple of months, this may be the way to go to get a permanent discount.

Getting out of the House

Some people join direct sales as they are able to get out of their house for a while and interact with others.  I hear this especially from stay at home parents who left the outside work force when they had their children.


Many people join direct sales for the extra income whether it is to pay a bill or two around the house or to make a substantial income or to allow the family to purchase some of the extras in life.  It is fairly easy to increase your bookings when you need more money or to work less when you do not need as much.


There are some people who join direct sales as they are looking to build confidence in themselves, their speaking ability or to prove to themselves or others that they can be a success in something.  This could be an underlying reason as well for people but they may not realize it or admit it to others.

Tax Benefits

Along with making money, you also get tax benefits when you are in direct sales.  In Canada, you can write off a portion of your home, your utilities and of course the supplies you purchase in order to run your business.  Many people end up not owing any money on the income they make on their business due to the deductions they have.

This is definitely not an exhaustive list of why people join direct sales or why you should consider direct sales, but it is a start and will help to get you thinking.  Do you think that this might be a good option for you?  See what type of product interests you and go from there.
