If you love your direct sales business but can’t seem to stand out from the crowd, I highly recommend you start a blog for your MLM business. Keep reading to find out why.
One of the reasons I love blogging – and why I specifically target this blog to women, although anyone can read it, of course – is that it provides women with an extra way to make money. Blogging can be a flexible opportunity for women who need or want to stay home for whatever reason, and it can be ideal for anyone that’s just not cut out for your everyday 9 to 5. Anyone can start a blog and make money. Not everyone will, of course, but it is possible.
While blogging is my preferred “work from home” option, I know many women who choose to work with multi-level marketing companies, otherwise known as MLMs. Like blogging, MLMs can be a great way for women to make money from home. There are myriad MLM companies out there, so no matter what you want to sell, there’s likely a company for you. For instance:
- Stella & Dot is a great option if you’re passionate about on-trend jewelry and accessories. Ditto for Chloe & Isabel. (By the way, both of these companies also have affiliate programs!)
- If you want to sell one of the best-known beauty brands in the world, you might consider becoming a representative for Avon. Or there’s Younique or Mary Kay or Lipsense. Of course, if you’re more interested in skincare, there’s always Rodan + Fields.
- If clothing is more your thing, you might gravitate toward companies like LuLaRoe, Black Sheep Legging, or Agnes & Dora.
- Then there are the health and wellness-related MLMs like Beachbody and Advocare.
- Essential oils are an essential item right now. Companies like doTERRA and Young Living are two of the biggest oil companies and two of the biggest direct sales companies in general.
- My favorite of all of the MLMs, though, is Usborne Books. I love getting their books for my little ones!
This is just a sampling of the myriad multi-level marketing companies. I’ve never worked for an MLM; it just doesn’t interest me. What has always struck me as odd, though, is that that almost all representatives I’ve encountered tend to focus their selling on social media. Social media is great, but it is also limiting for various reasons, including:
- The shelf life of any post on social media is rarely more than a few minutes.
- You are reliant primarily on your social networks for business, which can be annoying to those people in your social networks and it can be hard to find new people.
- Social media often feels saturated with sales posts.
Assuming that you want your business to be successful and stick out from the crowd, I’m going to suggest something not-at-all radical: Start a blog for your MLM business.
