Direct Selling Products Touch So Many Lives

Families around the world are touched by direct sales products

Last Friday I shared with you some of my favorite direct selling products. Ones that I use regularly in my own home. The idea was to highlight some of the amazing products that this industry has to offer. I also invited you to share your favorites. After all, there are so many, and one person can only use so many things. πŸ™‚

And so many of you did. As direct sellers ourselves, I think we appreciate direct sales products, companies, and consultants more than anyone else! You not only highlighted your own products, but so many of you talked about the many direct sales products in your home too. In addition to the companies I mentioned, we also read about:

What a list! And this is what is so exciting about our industry. There is so much that we have to offer, from skincare, to nutriceuticals, to energy, to home decor, to kitchen products, to cards and scrapbooking, to clothing…the list just goes on and on. This list is just a small representation of all we have to offer. In fact, it’s probably hard for you to find someone whose life has NOT been touched by direct selling products in some way.

So continue to support your fellow direct selling colleagues. They have so much to offer, and just like you, they are small business owners contributing the recovery of our global economy.

I can’t wait to continue to learn about even more direct sales companies and products. Which direct sales companies do you use in your home? Would love to read about them in the comments!

    I am with a company called Simply Said Designs we are a new company with only 527 Counsultans. I have been so impressed with this company in the short time I have been with them. I would love to have you check out my website. They have great products.

    I have been in the direct sales industry for 12 years. I have seen a lot of companies during this time. I am with Willow House, formally know as Southern Living at Home. (9yrs now)

    I try to support others in our business. I would rather the local consultants receive the business than big companies.
    Thanks for such a great list.

    Awesome list. I too never realized how many direct sales companies are out there. I was introduced to Shaklee products many years ago and was asked to share them with others. I didn’t want to have a business but I fell in love with the products (after being a skeptic about nutrition) and realized how they were part of my passion for better health and a better planet. How could I not share them with others. Shaklee’s green cleaning products were introduced in 1960 when the term biodegradable wasn’t familiar to most people. Their nutrition, cleaning, and nutrition products are thoroughly researched and tested…always. And their manufacturing standards are so stringent that they won’t sell a product if it wasn’t manufactured to their specifications. I don’t know of other companies that will do that. I also use Pampered Chef products in my kitchen and purchased them from a fellow volunteer at church.

    What a great article. I love Miche Bags and have several shells. It’s such a great concept. I also use Gold Canyon candles, Wild Tree, Stampin’ Up. I am a consultant for Close to my Heart Scrapbooking and Stamping. Our new product Studio J, online scrapbooking would make a GREAT portfolio for any direct sales industry. Show people how direct sales has changed your life. We all have a story to tell and pictures speak a thousand words. I hope you’ll give it a whirl. I am here to help.

    Thanks for sharing the list of direct sellers, some listed are new to me. Looking forward to checking them out. Recently went to a Stella and Dot jewelry show, wearing one of their necklaces now. Also like Essential Bodywear (the Bra lady), wearing one of their bras now too. πŸ™‚

    I have been doing in-home Wine Tastings for 7 years now and am loving it more than ever. I love teaching people about wine and how to enjoy it, as well as offer them high quality wines at a good value. I especially love converting the newbies to wine!

    The Traveling Vineyard
    Pampered Chef
    Gold Canyon Candles

    I use (and sell) Sensaria skin care products. They also have a citrus cleaner that is a safe alternative to harsh chemical cleaners. My other company is MonaVie and they have a nutritional blend juice made with the acai berry and weight management products that are very high in nutrition.

    Thank you again, thought I was familiar with most DS companies, but there were a couple on your list that were NEW to me, and I’ve taken the time to visit their websites.

    Thank you for everything that you do, your posts are always so informative.

    Hi Jennifer,
    I have been using Send Out Cards and I love it. Being able to send cards and gifts all with the click of my mouse (SOC stuffs, addresses, stamps and sends) helps me keep in touch so much more than before. You can personalize the card including adding photos. Have you heard of it?

    I am an Independent Consultant for Rodan + Fields Dermatologists (the ProActiv Doctors) and have watched our products help with Sun Damage, Brown Spots and Melasma, Rosacea, Eczema, Hormonal Acne and helping get rid of fine lines and wrinkles. All of my client’s are so thankful that I have introduced these products to them. Not only have they changed my client’s faces but my Sun Damage is gone and my wrinkles have diminished and I am now foundation free. These doctors really believe in changing faces and changing lives!

    Great post! I hadn’t realised before now, just how many direct selling products in my own home.

    In my kitchen, I have equipment from Pampered Chef, for cosmetics I use Vie at Home and Avon. I have scented oil burners from Body Shop and I also have Herbalife and Forever Living.

    Not forgetting of course, my own Phoenix Trading greeting cards which I use everyday for friends, family, customers, prospects and party hostesses!

    I am certainly doing my bit for our wonderful industry!
