Frequently Asked Questions
How does this work?
Joining a Facebook group of like minded individuals all selling the same products is not going to magically get you sales. (Although posting your business or Booth link in Facebook Groups WILL increase your Google ranking which will show your business higher in Google Search Results.) See how that works! You have to learn how the internet works to grow your business and take the steps to get there. I can show you how.
We have had reps reach the 1st page of Google above Corporate Website by following our Marketing Plan! Scroll through the images on any Business Listing page to see our screenshots! This is an amazing ROI for only $5 a month and a little effort following a Marketing Plan!
Results will vary according to what you put into it. You will share your Booth on your own Social Medias and Facebook groups. We also have over 50 Facebook Groups you are welcome to join and Post your Booth! How much could your business grow if you had a Marketing Plan with Step by Step Instructions?
We also provide you with a Social Media Marketing Planner, an eBook on 30 Ways to Market on Social Media, and an eBook on Google Ranking Secrets.

How do I shop the Booths?
Online Vendor Booths are posted on the Direct Sales Reps Events website and shared on our Social Medias. You can shop the Booths through the website, Verified Facebook Business Page, Twitter, Pinterest, or LinkedIn. Booths also show up on Google where millions of people are searching for products.
I can't find my state or business?
Use the Search Bar to find your business first, then choose your state. If you can not find your business, try searching for just 1 word in your company name. If your business is not listed you can use the Contact Page and I will add it.
I can't find Paparazzi, Color Street, or Xyngular or it is Sold out?
These Companies do not allow this type of advertising, but you can join WebTalk to advertise there Free:
My State is Sold Out, what can I do?
Choosing a State is just a play on how Google works showing local results first, you can choose any State you want to rank your business in. We also have a Nationwide Event that is the homepage of the website. Scroll down the list of States to see if Nationwide is available for your business. This still gets you all the benefits of Social Media Marketing whether you put a State in your Booth or not. If your State is sold out, you can still advertise at our Sister Site Online Vendor Shows. We accept all reps on the Sister Site.
Where is the Sister Site?
If your State is sold out, you can still advertise at our Sister Site Online Vendor Shows. We accept all reps on the Sister Site. Choosing a State is just a play on how Google works showing local results first, you can choose any State you want to rank your business in. This still gets all the benefits of Social Media Marketing whether you put a State in your Booth or not.
Is it $5 a month to join? Can I join for just 1 month?
The Annual Event is $5 a month paid in advance for the Yearly Event. So if you join in January it is $60 (12 months x $5), if you join in July it is $30 (6 months x $5). This is a 1 time fee according to which month you join. You would not pay $60 in January, then pay $30 again in July. It is $5 a month times the amount of months left in the year. Only the yearly Event is available, you can not pay monthly.
Is this a 1 time fee or a monthly recurring charge?
This is a 1 time fee according to which month you join. So if you join in January it is $60 (12 months x $5), if you join in July it is $30 (6 months x $5). It is $5 a month times the amount of months left in the year. There is nothing to cancel and your Booth does not automatically renew.
Can I join with more than 1 Business or State?
Yes, you can join with as many Businesses and/or States as you would like. Purchasing multiple States can be beneficial due to Google showing local results first, so if you purchase Alabama, and you have Alabama Keywords in your Booth listed in the Alabama Event, Google will show Search Results to people located in Alabama who search for Keywords you have in your Booth. You should have a basic understanding of how Social Media Marketing works before purchasing multiple spots to get the best results. I want you to be successful, not overwhelmed.
What is the difference with the Nationwide or Canada (All) option?
Nationwide is the first Online Vendor Event that we created way back in 2014. It is the Homepage Event on the Website. It does not give any additional benefits on search results over choosing a State. It still gets all the benefits of Social Media Marketing whether you put a State in your Booth or not. (Google knows where you are located, lol). Canada (All) is the first Canadian Event that we created in 2014. We have since added Provinces, so Canada (All) is just an Event that covers all of Canada, and Province Events are also available.
How Do I Renew My Booth for Next Year?
A new Annual Event starts on January 1st. You will need to join the new Yearly Event on your own, it becomes available around August. If you would like to use the same Booth for next years Event just send me a message.

Facebook does not allow users to charge to join or pay to join a Facebook group, so we run our Events off Facebook and we give you over 50 Groups that you are welcome to join. Everyone is allowed to join the Facebook Groups to be Compliant. The point of posting your Booth link in FB Groups is so that Google will count each time and increase your Business Ranking on Google where millions of people are searching for products.

No, Shopify is only used to control my inventory and products. You only use my Shopify store to make purchases of my products and services.
