Discovery Toys: A Review
In network marketing, there is a vast array of products that you can sell in many different categories. Often, the choice can be mind-boggling.
You can sell a health product, a line of clothing such as denim jeans, various brands of beverages such as coffee or tea, financial services or many other items.
If you have children or perhaps wish to sell childrens’ products, then Discovery Toys is a company that you may wish to investigate. Rather than simply making toys for amusement’, Discovery Toys products educational toys which contain many levels of learning for children. Parents would be happy that their children are having fun and being educated at the same time!
The company was formed in 1978 by Lane Nemeth, an early childhood educator. Taking advantage of the good luck of having a supportive family, she took a $5,000 family loan and turned it into Discovery Toys. In less than two decades, the company’s annual revenues were over $100 million and it was sold to Avon.
- Budding Brains (Birth – 12 months)
- Early Explorers (12 months – 3 years)
- Little Learners (3-5 years)
- Clever Connectors (5-8 years)
- Mighty Minds (8 years and up)
The company markets its products through direct selling rather than toy stores because it was discovered than education toys had to be demonstrated rather than simply put on display.
After all, there are huge companies such as Mattel, Hasbro and Lego that have vast marketing campaigns and that also dominate the toy store shelves.
Kids think educational toys are boring. A child with a parent at a toy store wouldn’t say “Mommy, I want a toy that will teach me something!!”.
Plus, parents would have to go from toy store to toy store to look for educational toys which are drowned out by the more popular products such as video games, dolls and other ‘fun’ products.
That’s where network marketing comes in.
You bring the educational toys to the parents and show them how they work. showing how their children can learn and have fun at the same time.
Of course, it takes a lot of hard work to develop a company from scratch and turn it into a multi-million dollar enterprise. It also takes hard work to succeed as a network marketer but you have the advantage of using a company’s assets, expertise and support to market their products.
Plus, no amount of marketing dollars spent by a huge company can match the power of word-of-mouth advertising.
Especially trusted word-of-mouth advertising.
If people trust you, they will believe in your product.
If they believe in your product, they will not only buy it but they will also join your team.
People join people before they join a business.
Working With Discovery Toys
If you join Discovery Toys, you will be marketing educational toys for children.
Selling toys which will help a child learn new things is much more satisfying than selling a toy gun!
Like many multi-level marketing (MLM) companies, you enter Discovery Toys though a sponsor, or an Independent Education Consultant ion the case of Discovery Toys.
The sign-up page is basic and the company will find a Consultant in your area.
Once you have established yourself with the company, you earn income by, you guessed it, network marketing.
Discovery Toys gained its success in a large part through direct marketing via hosting a party. If you host a party with friends, neighbors and relatives that demonstrate the educational toys, it will go a long way to making sales and spreading word-of-mouth.
In addition, you will earn more bonuses and commissions when you enroll people to join your team. As a Consultant, you will make revenue when your team members make their own sales.
Discovery Toy’s earnings breakdown, as shown in the chart below, is typical of many direct marketing companies.
The emphasis here is to build a team underneath you. The more people in your downline, then the more commission you will earn.
If you gain team members because people trust you and your product, then the process is much easier.
It’s much easier to attract clients with products such as educational toys because the product is much easier to demonstrate and the visual evidence is right there.
Market Your Product Honestly
If you market a health supplement, it might be very beneficial but the results will take days or weeks to take effect.
You will have to market the supplement and either show a lot of certified test results or else relate your own experience with the supplement.
Wit an educational toy or a clothing item, the product is right there.
Of course, if you regularly take a vitamin supplement or use a product such as a household cleanser and love how it works, then you can easily convey that to a potential customer.
It’s all about you!
You must believe in you yourself and what you are selling.
Discovery Toys has been in existence since 1978 so they do have an extensive track record. They definitely aren’t a fly-by-night startup but rather a company with a 34 year history. It’s worth doing some research into the company as a source of income.
Marketing Discovery Toys Products
With a product such as Discovery Toys, you can market it to friends, neighbors and other people you know but that field will dry up pretty quickly.
It helps if you recruit team members underneath you who will spread the word to their own friends and relatives.
What Else Can You Do?
You can market the products online and reach a potential world-wide audience.
Blogging is one tool that you can use to write about your product and all of its benefits. If you have good content and write useful information, then you will build an audience.
With a blog, you can add images and videos to reinforce your message.
Of course, you will need a hosting site for your blogs.
A suitable blog site is WordPress, which is used for this blog. It has both free and paid services but the paid service is worth the nominal charge.
If you’re writing great blogs and attracting a lot of viewers and potential customers, then you should definitely try having your own web site with your own address. That looks very professional and it’s a great way to market your blog.
The first step in making a professional looking blog site is to obtain a domain name with a suitable address, such as ‘educationaltoysforyou.com’.
Then, get a reliable hosting service for the domain name. This ensures that you own the space and can do what you want with your web site.
After that, write blogs and sell! Be passionate about the subject and include as much information as you can. Use images and videos to market your products.
