What is a MLM?
MLM is a marketing strategy in which the sales force is compensated not only for sales they personally generate, but also for the sales of others they recruit, creating a downline of distributors and a hierarchy of multiple levels of compensation
Undastanding the tupperware business opportunity
The general idea is to buy Tupperware products yourself, then sell them. You can also earn commissions from the efforts of those you recruit. For example, if you recruit Oratilwe and she recruits Nthabiseng, you will earn a small commission based on what they both sell or buy for themselves.
To become a Tupperware sales consultant, you must first meet with a Tupperware distributor or consultant in your area who will assist you with signing up for the consultant program.
