Direct Sales Companies by Category- Choosing Your Home-Based Business

Updated on December 31, 2011

Time was...

Time was if you were going to a party to buy something, you were either getting a bowl with a lid or some makeup. Now, through direct sales, you can get just about anything.

Choosing what to sell can be hard, though! Try choosing something that you know something about. The more knowledgeable you are about the product, the more you are going to sell.

Another thing to think about is the integrity of the company.  Almost all of the companies I have listed are registered with the DSA.  

The startup costs can be an issue as well.  If you find a company you would like to do business with, don't let the listed startup price deter you.  Check their website - they may have a startup special.  You can also check with a local consultant and see if they can work with you.  Sometimes a consultant will pay for part or all of your startup costs to build their team.

Click on any of the categories below to get comprehensive lists of direct sales companies that carry those items.

      Thanks Sharon. It took quite a bit of time to put it together, and I really want to sell EVERYTHING now because there are so many great companies!
