Regardless of entrepreneurial or established direct selling companies, there are two performance targets the management teams always strive for, growth and stability.
When speaking of growth, the majority of direct selling leaders look inward and focus on their products, services, costs, compensation structure and marketing plan. Undoubtedly, these are important factors. However, just focusing on the above factors along are no longer adequate. The demographic of the direct selling industry is changing. Now China, Korea, and Brazil are among the top five direct selling marketing, alone side the United States and Japan. Since 2011, the total sales in North America have been flat, but countries such as Venezuela, Malaysia, and Argentina posted more than 23 percent year-over-year growth. And more young people are starting direct selling businesses worldwide due to the entrepreneurial spirit of the industry.
With all the facts above, direct selling companies cannot afford to limit themselves in there national or continental boundaries, but must have a global growth strategy in mind. In answering to these challenges, industry innovators consistently ask themselves in the areas such as;
- ●Am I equipped to market my products and services to the customers who are interested?
- ●How do I continuously improve so my customers receive the best services possible?
- ●Will my operations be compliant with local international rules and regulations?
- ●Will I be able to customize and differentiate solutions based on the needs my customers, my administrators, my goals, based on my business?
Growth is rewarding, but it also brings in instability. A strategy that may have worked in one region may not be suitable for another. Delays or distortions in information related to business operations may often cost companies millions of dollars.
