So you have been thinking of ways to earn more money from home and have decided that starting a career in direct sales fits perfectly with your needs and the needs of your family. Now the question is how are you going to come up with the start up money to begin your business? If you are like most families your budget is already stretched so coming up with extra money can be tricky but it doesn’t have to be a huge obstacle. Here are some great ways to find the finances that you are seeking.
If you are working with a consultant of your company of choice inquire about the possibility of a starter party. A starter show(also known as earning your kit or an open for business party) is when your chosen sponsor would conduct a party in your home and put the earnings from the party toward your kit. A starter show can also be conducted as a catalog show if your sponsor should live a long distance away. You would simply show a catalog around to your family and friends and collect orders to submit to your sponsor. This would be a great way to not only begin your business with little to no expense and see first hand how a home party is conducted.
If a starter party is not possible with the company you wish to join see if your sponsor would be open to you becoming a helper. You could distribute catalogs for your sponsor and recommend that people shop at their web site should they have one. All commission from the sales you create for your sponsor could be applied to the purchase of your starter kit.
Selling some things on eBay is another great way to get money together to purchase a starter kit for your new direct sales business. Creating an account on eBay if you do not have one is very simple and it would be a great way to get rid of some things around the house that you no longer use. Having a garage sale is another idea along the same line that would allow you to earn more then enough money to begin your business. If it is winter time perhaps get together with others that may have things to get rid of and have an indoor garage sale at someplace like a community center.
You could offer babysitting services for a short time to friends and family to earn money for your direct sales business. Housecleaning, pet sitting and lawn care services are also excellent ways to earn money for starting a business.
If a friend or family is supportive of your endeavors to start a home business in direct sales perhaps they might consider lending you the money to begin and you could pay them back with the commission from your first few parties.
As you can see there are many ways to earn money to start a business in direct sales, a lot that were not even mentioned in this article. With a little creative thinking and hard work you will be earning and income from your home business in no time at all.
