Direct Sales (MLM) Marketing Is A Real Business Opportunity
MLM Businesses--What are they?
MLM, Multi-Level Marketing, Network Marketing, and Direct Selling are all business models used by companies to sell a product person to person.
There is nothing bad about working in this industry if you know the truth! And the company has an honest product and an honest business model.
Are they scams?
Some may be. If the company or sales people use too-good-to-be-true statements (like juices that can cure cancer!!) then I'd stay away from them. But products like Scentsy's wickless candle products make no such claim and add real value to your home or office.
Can you succeed?
MLM Business opportunities are about hard work and sticking to a plan. There is real money to be made (I really know people who are making thousands... tens of thousands... even hundreds of thousands each month. I'll give you names!) So if thousands of Network Marketing direct sales representatives are making real money, so can you. The secret is hidden in how to set up, manage, advertise and grow your Multi-Level Marketing business.
What is the truth about MLM Businesses?
I'll tell you the skinny on Direct Selling businesses. THEY ARE NOT GET RICH QUICK SCHEMES. If a MLM distributor tells you that you can get rich quick, run away... fast. Here's why.
The truth about multi level marketing is this. Given time and money you can build a successful business that can replace your 9-5 job.

What type of direct selling or Multi-level marketing model does Scentsy use?
Scentsy uses a party plan model to introduce their products to new buyers and to help with support. And for this product it is a wonderful way to be organized.
Party Plans are also known as home parties. An independent and authorized consultant can go into homes and help people organize parties where the host or hostess can also earn rewards which can be applied towards their own purchases. Additionally a special home party, called a Basket Party can be scheduled where the certified consultant can send out a sample pack of Scents and order forms and a host or hostess can pass the basket around their neighborhood or office or amongst friends instead of inviting people over to their home.
The commission structure is called a uni-level plan. This means that as you gain customers or sponsor other independent consultants part of all the monthly sales represent your income. As you become more successfull as an independent concultant your earning potential keeps growing.
