Why You Should Attend Direct Selling School

Remember when you were in school and you had a great day because you learned something that changed your life for the better?

At our Direct Selling Edge Conference on April 27th and 28th, you will have two of those days.

Since 2011, Sylvina Consulting and ThompsonBurton have co-sponsored a two-day direct selling school for party plan and network marketing companies.

From the start, our purpose has been to educate attendees so that when they return to their companies, they bring home a bucket of wisdom and a stack of action steps they can take right away to build, launch, grow, or improve their businesses.

You're in luck.  Our next school will be held soon on Monday and Tuesday, April 27-28, 2015.


* Book your lodging now or before April 14 to obtain our special group rate of $119.95 per night. Rooms reserved after this date will be booked at the prevailing rate. Click the DS EDGE banner above for tickets and lodging.

Pruning The Tree:  When To Deactivate Reps


Exit Terminations, deactivations, and reclassifications are all terms used by network marketing and party plan companies to describe the process used to end the businesses of independent representatives due to insufficient activity.

Some company policies on this are fully thought out, while others are based on faulty or incomplete reasoning.  Read this article to learn more.


Why, when, and how we should do it.

Ask Victoria

When should starter kits be discounted?


This is a question I rarely hear, but everyone really needs to know the answer.


Tell me when, Victoria! 


Did you know that Sylvina Consulting improves new and established network marketing and party plan direct selling companies so that they can grow faster?

Direct selling and compensation plans are not just our business; they are our passions!  We love what we do.

This is why we co-sponsor the Direct Selling Edge Conference.  We know we're on the right track when our students tell us:

"Coming to this conference for me was the best thing to do as a new business owner. There was something new to learn from each speaker."  N.L.

"Really, really impressed at the quality and quantity of information."  H.R.

"I loved your conference! I learned so much in such a short time. You covered every aspect of startup and managing a company. Overall, a great experience. Keep up the good work!"  C.M.

"For experienced MLM management teams like ours, attend and you will leave with increased awareness in critical areas of your business.  This conference was a blessing.  You exceeded our expectations."  B.K.

"All of the speakers were good.  I give the whole experience a 10 out of 10!  Well done!"  K.B.

With guidance from Sylvina Consulting, you can benefit from our suggestions, recommendations and deliverables gained from nearly 30 years of experience working with more than 400 direct selling companies.

Compensation plan design and evaluation are two of our specialties.  Others include business plan development, editing and writing marketing content, sales training, software implementation consulting, and business performance reviews.

We welcome the opportunity to be of service to you, your company, and its independent representatives.
