Are you an advocate, consultant, retailer, all-around sales wonder woman of any direct sales companies like Usborne, LulaRoe, doTerra, Melaleuca, Arbonne, Norwex, Pampered Chef, Rodan + Fields, Jamberry, Thirty-One, ItWorks! Scentsy, etc?
I have a short story for you. You’ll want to hear this…
The other day I ran out of stock of a particular item that I originally got from a friend of a friend who is a consultant. I’m not in direct contact with the consultant and, if I’m honest, I hadn’t been in touch with the friend in awhile and felt sheepish reaching out just to get the contact information of her consultant friend. I spent a few days wondering where I should go to to replenish my stock. I ended up reaching out to an acquaintance on Facebook whom I had seen post about the product a few weeks back.
The experience got me thinking.
The purpose of Marshalltown Moms is to connect moms to resources, events, organizations, activities, and businesses in our town and it occurred to me that many of these businesses are run by moms!
So…we’re creating a new guide, a directory of sorts, that will be added to Marshalltown Moms very soon! It will be called our “Local Consultants Guide” and it will feature individual business consultants who sell products many of us know and love.
I’m in no way endorsing any of these specific companies but I do love the fact that their business models offer individuals flexibility, the opportunity to make some income (primary or supplemental), and ownership and control of their individual business.
Our new online directory will provide consultants a local outlet to promote their business and will serve as a quick reference guide for any Marshalltown mom looking to re-order, host a party, stock up on Christmas gifts, buy a shower gift, support local business, etc.
There will be a small fee that will cover your listing in the directory. The listing will feature your name, the product you sell, a brief summary or sentence which could include a promote code, contact information, and a link to your “store” or a Social Media page.
If you’re a consultant (or know someone who is), and want to be included in our new guide or partner with us in a different way, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
