Direct sales as a second job

The concept behind direct sales is very simple: Products or services are sold by independent business partners, either as their main or second job. This saves cost-intensive advertising measures, expensive licences and profit margins of intermediaries: LR invests this money in the development of top-quality, innovative products, and in the compensation and training of its business partners. 
Around the globe, approx. 70 million people work in direct sales. For many of them, what started as a second job has become their main occupation. Together, they generate direct sales turnover of 120 billion US$ annually.

What is the difference between direct sales and network marketing?

Traditional direct sales rewards sales partners for selling or providing products and services. Examples include sales representatives and selling at parties.

Network marketing is probably the most dynamic form of traditional direct sales. It enables sales partners to attract and supervise new sales partners. For supervising, training, motivating and managing these new sales partners, the sales partner receives additional perks, such as bonus payments. 

In direct sales with network marketing, the remuneration system is therefore composed of two parts: the margin, on the one hand, and the bonus, on the other.



”Direct sales by LR give people the chance of a successful, independent life, no matter where they come from.”
