Question and answer
Q: two potential positives and two negatives direct marketing of the poor has on people and their economies.
A: It?s well established that a poor economy often motivates many aspiring entrepreneurs to start a business in order to supplement or replace their income. [ In today?s economy, more and more people seem to be turning to direct selling and network marketing businesses. The Sacramento Bee recently featured a press release from Zacks Investment Research, Inc., a company that processes stock reports
issued by 3,000 analysts from 150 brokerage firms, and monitors more than 200,000 earnings estimates, looking for changes. Zacks Investment Research looked at 3 publicly-traded direct selling companies currently thriving around the globe. According to the Direct Selling Association and as outlined in the Zacks press release: ?Direct retail sales in the U.S. rose last year to a whopping $28.56 billion. The number of direct sellers in the U.S. has grown too, from 12.2 million in 2001 to 15.8 million in 2010. More and more men are joining the direct sales force as they look for ways to generate income in a dismal job market. In 2008, only 13.6% of direct sellers were men. In 2010, that number jumped to 18.2%.? To make money in a direct selling business you have to be in it for the long-term. Most direct sellers and network marketers quit within their first year. But with patience and continued training on how to grow a direct selling or network marketing business successfully, product sales grow and residual income begins to accumulate. Starting such a business as a recession-proof strategy has proven to be a good idea for many in this weak economy. 2 positives: stimulates the economy and could bring poor people to spend more. Company stocks go up and turns the stock market into a bull. 2 negatives: poor people are reluctant to spend. Could drive company bankrupt if marketing fails. ]
