How Selling Vitamins can Bring you Financial Freedom


Most people are becoming more health conscious. Many of the baby boomers are looking for ways to look and feel younger. This is where selling vitamins comes in.

Vitamin sales are growing each year, and as people become more health conscious, it will continue to grow. This is why so many people who want to work from home are looking at a vitamin business opportunity as an option. It is very likely to succeed.

There are many ways to start a vitamin business. Some require very little up front money, while others require a substantial investment. Research the companies and find one that suits your needs best.

When you begin your search, decide if you want to work with people in your community, on the internet or both. Many vitamin business parent companies are based on the business owner working personally with people. They want the business owner to get clients to buy the products and other people into business. This option usually has large start up costs. You are required to have inventory on hand for your clients. Depending on the number of clients and the amount of space in your house, this may or may not be a problem.

Some offer training, support, and tools to help, but you will have a lot of footwork to do yourself. Your main advertising campaign will be word of mouth. However, you can ask local gyms, salons, and spas if you can leave flyers or brochures at their front desk. However, your happy clients will do more for your vitamin business in the end.

As mentioned, some of these parent companies ask you to sign up other people for selling vitamins under your guidance. You should not view these people as competition, but as an additional source of income. Everything they sell and the people they sponsor add to your income. These companies are Multi Level Marketing companies and with hard work, you can make your vitamin business very profitable.

Many companies offer the owner the option of purchasing a web site. This helps your business grow with an extended, possibly international, clientele. You will also usually get other people interested in selling vitamins to sign up under you.

This is not the only option. Several vitamin business opportunities are completely internet based. They do not require you to keep any inventory and their start up costs are usually minimal. You can sell to people face to face, but you would direct them to your website to place their orders, which are shipped directly to them.

These companies are usually vitamin distribution warehouses. They help people to set up a virtual home business to move their stock. The web site of the owner is connected to the warehouse, and orders are processed immediately. There is actually very little the owner needs to do.

The main focus on the internet business owner is marketing of their web site. It is a good idea to join affiliation programs, which will allow your vitamin business to advertise on other web sites in the form of a link. It helps to bring more people to the web site then just relying on search engines.

However, you have to make sure that your web site is search engine optimized. By placing keywords used by search engines in the content of the web site, you will be higher on the results lists and bring more prospective clients to your site.

Depending on the type of vitamin business opportunity you choose will change your compensation. It can range from a few cents to a few dollars depending on the product. Check out the compensation plans of each company you are interested in. Make sure you are comfortable with it before signing up.

One thing you should do is keep up with trends by getting in on conference calls or seminars, if the company offers them. Read industry newsletters, periodicals and books. Periodically talk with your clients to see if they are following trends or are interested in specific items.

If you carry inventory make sure you have the newest items. If something is going to be discontinued, let your clients know. You have two main goals for your vitamin business, which are interdependent. Keep your clients happy, to keep your profits high.
