USA Today Reports Direct Sales Place to Be

If there is a sweet spot in this economy, ShopToEarn is in it. An article this month in USA Today outlines how the direct sales industry continues to grow during our current economic times. Partially due to the loss of jobs, but also attributed to the fun and freedom, many Americans are joining direct sales and affiliate marketing companies, like Shop To Earn to supplement their income.

The article reports, that in 2007, the most recent year available, the direct sales industry generated $30.8 billion in U.S. sales. The companies exemplified in the article include Avon, Isagenix, Silpada Designs, and Mary Kay, all of which are direct sales companies, where the representative sells a specific product, collects commission, and gets incentives for recruiting other sellers. ShopToEarn, in comparison, has a similar model, but associates are not required to carry a specific product line or house merchandise.

Read on for more information about the profitable increase in direct sales associations.
