    About Direct Sales Home Jewelry Businesses

    fashion jewelry - http://www.sxc.hu/photo/595558 - Irum Shahid As with most direct sales business opportunities, you must sign up as a consultant with the company you choose. Each company has its own program and requirements. Typically, consultants are required to pay a fee to get started. The initial fee covers a starter kit that includes training and sales materials, as well as product samples.

    The majority of sales for high fashion jewelry home based business companies tend to be made through home party open house sales events. Representatives recruit people to serve as party hostesses. The hostess invites her friends to drop by during the event and collects catalog sales. She earns free jewelry based on sales volume and the consultant earns commission on each item sold.

    High fashion jewelry home base consultants can also sell the products they represent via website sales, participating in expo events (such as booths at trade shows, festivals, and other types of selling opportunities), conducting fundraiser shows, individual sales, and through other selling venues.

    Recruiting and team building can lead to significant leadership income with any direct sales company. In addition to earning a sales commission on merchandise sold, direct sales representatives can also boost their earning potential by recruiting other people to become consultants for the fashion jewelry company that they have chosen to represent.

    Individuals who work as representatives of direct sales companies function as a self-employed independent contractor, working (and earning) as much or as little as you want based on your own productivity, and within the parameters established by the company you represent to maintain an "active" status.
