Default Is it possible?

Is it possible to have an online skin care business without parties? Curious

Thanks!

I think it would be really hard but not impossible. I wouldn't buy skin care online unless I could try it first. Maybe online parties where you could send samples to the guests and have them try it and then have the party to answer questions and take orders? I dunno

Absolutely! My business is done almost entirely online and I'm a top consultant so I know it's achievable. People normally don't buy skin care online at first but with my direct sales business, it's common for people to contact me, ask for a sample. Once they become a customer then the sales become more regular online.

Yes, it is possible. As long as the company allows the consultant to market online--facebook, twitter, youtube, and such---then yes! I think with any direct sales business marketing solely online takes longer to really grow, but it can be done. I think offering samples is important to growing a business online because, as others have said, people want to try skincare items before they buy.

Definitely possible! My business is makeup, so I think you could say they are quite similar in the way that people make decisions about their purchases. There are hurdles, but currently I sell 100% online and it's been successful so far.

I did not know that Pangea had a mlm component. I have used the eye cream and really liked it.

It is definitely possible especially with the essential oils and non-skin care which I tend to get quite a bit of random online sales each month. With skin care I've found people generally want to sample first.

Pangea was retail for years and went mlm model not long ago, correct?

It is possible - I find with my company, people use the supplement first and then when they discover the health benefits and become educated about absorbing anti-oxidants thru skin care, then they also want to use the skin care. The selling point of the NP skin care products is that it is also an anti-oxidant so it may be a bit different from selling normal skin care, I don't know.

Yes I think it is possible, but it does take longer and a little more difficult.
Samples would be a good idea.

It could take longer if you're brand new to internet marketing and need to build up traffic and traction but it's definitely more than achievable. I've welcomed 6 new team members this week alone and it's all from internet marketing .
