A bit of confusion exists regarding the concept of direct selling. Many confuse it with multilevel marketing, which is a completely different creature altogether. Multilevel marketing focuses more on the development of a network of sellers and drawing a commission from the work of these people downline in the network. Direct selling is exactly what its name implies. Entrepreneurs sell a product to a buyer. They simply do so away from a retail store site. Commissions are made on the sale of the product.
QNet is working very hard to make sure people better understand the differences between what the company is doing as opposed to the business model of its MLM competitors. In India, QNet put a lot of time and resources dealing with the media to ensure the public realized the company was not in league with any controversial MLM endeavors.
In order for any direct selling endeavor to succeed, the products sold positively must be of high quality. This is why QNet puts enormous effort into developing quality merchandise. Working with a well-known and well-respected company such as Sharp is a good business move. Sharp definitely produces products of quality. QNet-affiliated entrepreneurs are sure to have a lot of faith in something bearing both the QNet and Sharp names. So will customers seeking quality merchandise.
