Direct selling is not a thing of the past. As a matter of fact, direct selling is in demand, and if you’re in business and want to grow and thrive, this trend should be embraced and introduced into your sales strategy for 2023.
According to the U.S. Direct Selling Association’s 2021 Direct Selling Growth and Outlooks Survey, this industry generated $42.7 billion in retail sales, which is up by 6.4% in 2020, a record-breaking year for the channel. The DSA, a national trade organization representing businesses selling goods and services directly to customers, also found in its survey that “44.6 million preferred customers and discount buyers purchased through the direct sales channel, an increase of 7.2% over 2020.” Considering these stats are undeniably telling, embracing direct sales is not only being ambitious about wanting to grow but accepting the reality that we need face-to-face interactions in business because simply put, we are human.
So what is ‘direct selling’ or ‘direct sales’? Well, it’s in the name. Direct selling, or sales, is when a company sells its products or services directly to its customer or client. As an expert broker in direct sales and marketing campaigns, Credico (USA) LLC helps businesses to understand the unrivaled benefits of adding a direct sales channel to their business strategies. And we know firsthand that while it may be tempting for companies to abandon retail in favor of an entirely online system, this technique has been shown to be unsuccessful in the past. After more than three decades in business, we know that removing all face-to-face connections is incredibly risky. The loss of brand power can negatively impact your company’s ability to forge a lasting relationship with customers, which affects how it can compete in today’s market, both online and in person.
That’s why we believe in the omnichannel, or multi-channel, approach. Omni-channel marketing combines and connects an organization’s various customer communication channels to provide customers with a consistent brand experience. Omni-channel marketing seamlessly integrates branding, messaging, and online and offline touch points as consumers move down the sales funnel, enabling a more impactful customer experience. In addition, this layered marketing takes a consumer-centric view of marketing tactics.
