What is a direct sales business? Direct sales is when a person has joined up with a real company to sell a real product directly to a consumer. She may do it through an online replicated website, at in home Style Boutiques, or through a vendor event of some kind, such as a craft show, networking event, or festival. In direct sales, that Stylist will provide direct customer service, likely more personal and with better quality than a box store. The direct seller earns a commission off the product she sells, and as she builds a team, she may also earn a portion of her team members’ sales as well.
We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.
The direct selling business has a lower price point start up cost than a franchise brick and mortar store would have. The opportunities usually contain no cost or low cost website fees, no to low quotas, and flexible work hours, but success does depend on one’s own work initiative, and often creative solutions in the execution of her business. Relying on one’s friends’ list or social media only is going to be very limiting to her success.
The three main reasons a person would go into direct sales are:
- Earning potential
- Need for community and to impact a community
I’m curious. If you were going to start a Lilla Rose direct sales business, what would be your main reason for having one? I seriously want to hear your story!
Lilla Rose was actually named one of the eight best direct selling companies to earn extra cash by Woman’s Day magazine, with commissions starting at 30%, and the ability to earn up to 45% with sales and promotions through team building.
The new kit, called Ready, Set, Style, was released in early October, It contains everything a Stylist needs to hit the ground running. The start up cost is $125 (plus tax and shipping), but has a $300 value in product and business supplies. Doing only home parties, a person could earn back their start up costs in as little as one or two parties, depending on the sales from those parties. There is also the potential to add on a Fast Start pack for $500 (plus tax/shipping, valued at $1100) for additional product if one desires to have inventory.
There are no website fees, and the only quota is the $30/year in sales. Frankly, once a Lilla Rose user, that $30 quota is easily obtained just in personal use purchases! That is the purchase of a hair band and a pair of bobby pins, or a small flexi clip and a Swerve upin!
If a person is looking for flexibility in business, there are many ways to sell Lilla Rose products. The replicated website is easy and free. Sharing the website via a blog or the products at networking events is a way to introduce Lilla Rose. A Stylist can opt to work with bloggers doing reviews and giveaways. A Stylist may carry an advertising bag filled with product, and sell at her children’s extra-curricular activities. There are home Style Boutiques as well as social media ones. Using the policies and procedures of not just the Lilla Rose company for social selling, but those of each site as well, this can be very effective, ethical, and spam free way to do Style Boutiques. There are also craft fairs, festivals, and vendor events for those who enjoy direct selling in that fashion.
Lilla Rose is a flexible enough business opportunity that we actually use our business as training ground for our children in entrepreneurship in our homeschooling.
The community in Lilla Rose is like nothing I ever expected in direct sales. It is a family owned company, and even Lilla Rose Inc is small enough that there is a family atmosphere at headquarters. The owner and CEO of the company, John Dorsey, is likely to answer a telephone customer or Stylist inquiry.
We have both larger Stylist support groups and smaller team ones. There are weekly free webinar trainings. There are occasional regional trainings, and a yearly conference.
Lastly, if you want to make an impact in your community using your direct sales business, you are able to do that as well. You determine your involvement in a cause either through product donation to that cause, or whether or not you want to run a fundraiser.
And, finally, I love the ladies on my growing team. I truly want to hear their successes, and help through their hard times in their business.
Do work ethic and an entrepreneurial spirit energize you? Do you love hair styling and accessories? Would you love excitement, rewards, fun, and friends?
I’m seeking new Stylists to join my Lilla Rose team, and to be Hair Heroes with me! With effort you’re able to put into your business, you could earn a full or part-full time income by helping ladies look and feel beautiful, and by providing them with an easier morning hair routine! I’d love to talk more about the business opportunity here, or message me on my business page, LoveLeavingLegacy. I look forward to hearing from you!
