Direct selling offers a significant number of people additional income options and encourages micro-entrepreneurship. According to the World Federation of Direct Selling Associations (WFDSA), over 125.4 million direct sellers are anticipated to be involved in the industry in 2020; and this number is expected to rise as the industry grows. Direct selling not only provides revenue opportunities but also imparts transferrable sales and management skills that can be applied outside of the direct selling business.
Over the past several years, direct selling companies have been successful in offering new items on a regular basis in order to reach the majority of the consumer base. Organizations have also been creating new product versions in order to meet the shifting wants of today's consumers. Direct selling companies have been able to appeal to a big audience with a variety of product preferences by expanding their brand range. This has attracted new consumers and contributed to the direct selling market growth.
Apart from monetary rewards, direct selling companies recognize that offering additional incentives to their direct sellers is the greatest method to drive them to expand their business successfully. As a result, many organizations have started offering extra rewards to their sellers and retailers. These extra incentives have not only assisted firms in getting employees to join the direct selling industry, but they have also kept their salesforce motivated to set higher goals and accomplish them. However, the growth of the global market is being hampered by increased demand for internet purchasing and the growth of the e-commerce industry.
During the worldwide pandemic of 2020, direct selling saw a rise in the use of online tools and video meetings, as well as a welcome boost in social connection for consumers who were isolated owing to national lockdowns. These adjustments, according to the WFDSA, were critical in assisting direct selling representatives in adapting and responding to the pandemic's problems and were a significant driver of higher sales and representative growth. According to the Direct Selling Association (DSA), the global health crisis heightened customer demand for health and wellness products; and direct selling provided home-bound entrepreneurs with a way to make required part-time or additional income.
