About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Direct selling remains a successful channel in retailing, with employment creation opportunities. Many people across South Africa are earning extra income as direct selling agents; hence they have the ability to increase the revenue for the whole channel. The use of direct sales agents allows a more personal relationship between the customer and the sales agent, and sales are not restricted to fixed premises, as agents can reach consumers anywhere.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Avon led the way in terms of share and sales in direct selling in 2012, with a share of 17%. This high share has been brought about by the fact that it has a huge network of sales representatives all over the country, and their income is based on how much they sell. Tupperware was in second place with a value share of 6%, and this was also influenced by the fact that it has many sales representatives all over the country.

PROSPECTS

  • In the same way that direct selling companies such as Avon have looked into the prospect of having bricks-and-mortar stores to increase the availability of their products, so many traditional retailers have expressed an interest in subsidising their bricks-and-mortar sales through direct selling. The low start-up costs, as well as the fact that the brands are already established, may enable companies to boost their sales with lower input.
