Did you know that the demand for American – made products has been growing steadily in recent years? With high unemployment rates as well as a growing desire to get whatever they can more locally, Americans are becoming interested in finding out what things they can buy that are made in the USA. If you like the idea of going into direct sales and selling American – made products, you may want to look into the Longaberger basket company. Longaberger offers a direct sales business opportunity where consultants sell baskets and other home décor items through web sites and home parties.
Longaberger is based in Dresden, Ohio. The company was founded in 1973 by Dave Longaberger. The company has built a reputation for quality and style and their products are in demand. Today, Longaberger consultants offer their customers the high quality handcrafted baskets which are the company’s claim to fame as well as pottery, wrought iron, and other home accents. The Longaberger home – based business opportunity is a direct sales opportunity, so it offers a flexible schedule as well as portability. Since your home – based Longaberger business can go wherever you go, it works well for military families as well as others who are always on the move.
There are three different start – up options for Longaberger, with the first starting around twenty dollars. This option does not include any product samples. The other two options include some samples and are $99 and $199. There is a six month payment plan available for the $99 and $199 options. As with any home – based business opportunity, direct sales is not a good fit for everyone. Be sure to think about your personality and whether direct selling is something that you feel comfortable doing. Make sure that you thoroughly investigate and assess whether the Longaberger opportunity is right for you by reading the information on their web site and contacting them for additional information.
