Globally, direct selling research is a highly collaborative effort, managed by the WFDSA Global Research Committee and the U.S. DSA Industry Research Committee. As well, many additional research initiatives are managed by local DSAs. Direct selling research is used by direct selling associations for media and government relations, and by member companies for benchmarking and planning purposes.
