New Opportunity for Active Direct Selling Companies
Since 2004, Direct Selling News (DSN) has proudly served the entire channel and the direct selling executives that lead it. Our mission? To serve, educate and edify the channel as the daily resource for breaking global news, emerging trends and powerful stories. With DSN, it’s easy for direct selling executives to stay informed, engaged and always one step ahead.
We accomplish this through a three-pronged multimedia approach, consisting of the following free open content:
- Daily news stories, company spotlights, executive announcements, special interest stories and more.
- Original exclusive podcasts filled with dynamic interviews with some of the most innovative and influential executives from the channel’s most revered brands, plus expert thought leaders and icons all discussing direct selling’s past, present and future.
- A 100-page monthly publication (print and digital versions) filled with in‑depth, big‑picture reporting on the channel and the trends and innovators that shape it.
- Premier education, recognition, awards and events for active corporate direct selling executives including:
BE AN ACTIVE PARTICIPANT IN PROGRESS AND EVOLUTION WITHIN THE CHANNEL
Our latest innovation is yet another way we can provide relevant information, exposure, edification and education to the companies in the channel we consider partners and friends. In 2022, we are introducing a new opportunity to become an official patron of DSN through our new Membership Program.
For you, this provides an even deeper level of exposure to the stories, innovators and events that shape the channel now and in the future. For us, it allows us to provide even more indepth research, advocacy, journalism, recognition and support to the channel we all value and revere. Membership really does have its perks—here’s a look at what your Membership provides the channel, and how it can help your company.
Growing your network and your skill set provides motivation and momentum
Executives need training, inspiration, recognition and peer-to-peer camaraderie just as much as the field in order to stay engaged, motivated and productive. Industry-specific events are where ideas, momentum and evolution happen for your company and our channel.
DSN has provided free educational and networking events such as Direct Selling University and recognition galas such as the prestigious annual Global Celebration Event for more than 20 years. Your Membership enhances your staff development initiatives and supports the growth, future and evolution of the industry. Your Membership makes it possible for DSN to continue providing access to relevant education, recognition and inspiration for active corporate executives as well as develop new recognition and award programs to further edify the channel’s leading companies and executives.
Your time is too valuable to spend chasing down news and information
Finding the time to research and stay up to speed on market trends and innovations happening in the channel is a massive, time-consuming task. But without insight and perspective into the global market, the competition, the challenges and the opportunities— companies often fall short of achieving their goals.
Nobody covers the business of direct selling better than DSN. For more than 17 years, our monthly publication, events and original multi-media content have made us the channel’s trusted go-to journalistic and educational resource. Your Membership helps you, your team and the channel as a whole stay informed, engaged and always one step ahead.
Inspiring and educational training benefits your entire corporate team—from industry outsiders to seasoned veterans
On average, it takes a year for employees coming from outside of the channel to fully learn and understand the intricacies of this unique business model. Plus, keeping your current corporate leaders up to speed on current trends and best practices is equally challenging—and crucial—for your business.
DSN is excited to announce a new on-demand library exclusively for DSN Members. As a Member, your entire corporate staff has access to exclusive training and educational video and audio content from some of the top leaders and innovators in the channel. Remember, DSU event replays are available for a few days, but the
Membership-only on-demand library lasts forever—it’s Masterclass for direct selling!
The on-demand library contains TED-style lessons from innovative industry leaders spanning every business function and area, including:
- And More!
These influential leaders tackle the topics that matter most in today’s market as well as share proven fundamentals to help you and your team discover the big ideas that can change your business now and in the future. The on‑demand library will launch with 100+ video and audio options and new audio and video lessons, courses and presentations will be added regularly each year.
Changing the public’s perceptions about direct selling makes the entire channel stronger
DSN believes in the direct selling channel, its potential and its future. But turning the public discourse about direct selling requires a collective community effort. DSN is an advocate and champion of the industry. Your Membership helps DSN share and celebrate the stories that need to be told and supports the recognition of companies that are achieving success with integrity.
