Selecting A Company to be a Distributor

Dec 14, 2007
Becoming a distributor is a great way to make a side income or passive income while you work a full time job. Some people enjoy being a distributor so much that they end up doing it as their full time work and main source of income. It completely depends on which company you are a distributor and the amount of time that you have for your new small home business. Let's look at some of the key points that you should consider when selecting a company to be a distributor for.

There are many companies on the internet that you can work for as a distributor. You will be an independent contractor and operate your own small home business. You are not an actual employee of the company and they do not make any guarantees on the amount of income that you will make as a distributor for their products and services. One key point is to make certain that the company is a large and reputable company. For example, if no-one has ever heard of a small company you will have a harder time being successful as a distributor for that particular company.

Since you will be promoting the products and services as a distributor, it is important to find a company that will offer you free leads, already has lots of traffic to business and even offer you free referrals. The majority of larger companies that want you to be a distributor already have a website built for you. You will typically receive a sub-domain as a web store with the products and services already posted on the store front. As a distributor, you will drive traffic to the new store and receive orders from your new customers. The company will then ship the products directly to consumers so that you don't have to keep a stocked inventory in your home.

Being certain that the company has products that distribute well is another key to success in distributorships. A company in the wellness industry or health industry often will be the best choice for a distributorship since this niche of the internet is growing so rapidly. People are interested in wellness and health related products and services. If you select a company that has a very limited product that only a handful of people can use, it is going to be a real challenge to distribute their products, services and information. It is a key factor to select a company that will provide a popular product, service and information for you to distribute.

Find a company that will train you in what to say and how to pitch their products. The larger wellness and health companies will provide you online training, training manuals or even phone calls to help you train for becoming a distributor for their products. They do not just give you a web store and leave you without any type of assistance. You need to find a company that will focus on helping you succeed as a distributor. Remember the more you distribute for them and the more successful that you are in your new home business, the more money they also make from your sales and experience.
