There are several different kinds of businesses you can start depending on your interests and what you are passionate about. Considering these things is important since it will help you stay motivated to learn more about the business and the products or services you might offer. Doing this prevents you from getting discouraged from the problems you may face.
You could have an interest with cosmetics, dresses or other fashion items and love buying and collecting as much as possible. Your passion in these might have made you more knowledgeable on them which is useful when you decide to enter a business related to it. An example of this is in joining the Avon recruiting and leadership programs offered to you.
You may have a friend who is also a sales representative of Avon and have a small business of selling these products to interested people. Because they know you have an interest with the items that they sell, she might invite you to join her team. They probably have known about your passion based on the number of orders you made to them.
If you are not interested in selling their products but still want to buy and use them because you like their quality, you can still join her team. When you become a member though, there is no need for you to sell the items to other people. You only have to purchase from them and you now have the advantage of purchasing them in discounted prices.
Another scenario could be is that you are interested with joining the sales team of your friend but do not have enough money for the membership fee. Your friend may have the capability to offer you a deal where they would allow you to sell their products in her stead. You can keep the profit while they get from you the capital they used.
This means you could use the profit you earned from selling these items to other people in order to join her sales team. Choosing this deal also has the advantage of letting you experience becoming an Avon representative first before actually being one officially. The things you experienced will be helpful when you start your journey with the company.
When you become a member and is now considered one of their representatives, you can now enjoy large discounts with your orders. This lets you enjoy the products personally for a lower cost or sell them to others with the standard retail price and earn a profit. Doing this is the first step in direct selling businesses.
You may also start recruiting your friends to join you in the team and offer them the opportunity to earn an extra income themselves. Inform them about the aforementioned things so they will have several options in joining you. And if you successfully recruited them, you would be earning a bonus as well.
When your rank as representative increases, more earning opportunities will be available as well. This includes getting a percentage of the sales made by your team. And more bonuses awaits you the better you become with your business.
