Direct Sales /Network Marketing
There is so much confusion surrounding Direct Selling/ Network Marketing but due to the influence of Social Media, it is now more acceptable and increasingly it is being referred to as Social Marketing.
Some of the questions that are often asked when people are evaluating whether running a Social Marketing business are –
- Is it a pyramid scheme?
- Do you have to sell things to your friends and family?
- Do you do parties?
Then people often share that –
- “I’m not a salesperson”
- “I don’t want to be pushy”
- “What will people think of me”
These thoughts are very common as there are so many myths and fallacies out there about Direct Sales/ Network Marketing.

What is Social Marketing?
So, what is Social Marketing? It’s simply a distribution method. Instead of products being sold in shops which is the “Traditional Retail” distribution you sell directly to the customer cutting out the middleman.
To survive traditional retail need high mark ups over the wholesale price as they have to factor in all of the costs of running the store, including rent, utilities, salaries, packaging, marketing, advertising and taxes. .
In most cases these costs far exceed the actual cost of the ingredients in the product or service.
Leverage the power of online distribution
Social Marketing is different in that it leverages the power of online distribution. Products move directly from the company’s manufacturer, via the internet to the end consumer.
This is done through the recommendation of a Distributor (YOU) sometimes referred to as a Brand Ambassador or influencer.
You are essentially cutting out the middlemen which can often mean you have a better-quality product for a lower price point.
Anyone can build an online business Part Time
Social Marketing gives anyone the ability to grow an online business. You can leverage the power of the internet and use social media to earn an additional income stream. You can work this business around what you are currently doing.
Its all about conversations – no hard sell!

Offering genuine value to people eliminates the feeling of a “hard sell”. No one likes to be sold to!
Any engagements online should be in a very natural way i.e. like sharing your experiences with the product and why you like/ recommend the product and/ or the additional income this business opportunity has provided you.
All you are suggesting is that it maybe worthwhile for them to “Take A Look”.
Send them some information and let them decide if it is right for them. If they like what they see and decide to purchase your product or service You Get Paid!
