The following is an interview with our sponsors at Sseko. Read on for the details of this great direct sales opportunity.
Please tell us a little about Sseko and the products you offer.
Earn a flexible income through fashion and make an impact across the globe with Sseko! You’ll fall in love with the quality and style of our handcrafted and on-trend pieces. We have a huge selection of sandals with hundreds of styling options, versatile apparel, timeless and trendy leather bags, and stunning jewelry. There truly is something for everyone.
We provide employment and scholarship opportunities to women in Uganda who are working to pursue their dreams and overcome poverty in their community. We do this through a financially self-sustaining Direct Sales model, one that also enables us to create opportunity for women in the U.S. to earn an income: The Sseko Fellows Program.
As a Sseko Fellow, you get to share the Sseko story and sell beautiful products of the highest quality. You’ll become an integral part of making dreams come true for women in Uganda while you simultaneously earn an income for yourself! We’ve got an incredibly vibrant community ready to welcome and support you as you get started… and every step of the way!
What’s the compensation for consultants?
As a Sseko Fellow, you’ll earn up to 30% commission on personal and team sales, plus up to 10% on your team’s commissionable volume, and receive up to 50% off of Sseko product. See our full compensation plan and income disclosure here!
What are start-up costs involved?
The up-front investment is up to you! When you join the Fellows program, you’ll purchase your Starter Kit which will get you started with Sseko product! We’ve developed Starter Kit options for every price point, ranging from $99 to $999.
You can also earn your Starter Kit for FREE by hosting a Sseko Trunk Show and applying your Hostess credit towards the cost of your kit.
Is a personal consultant website included or available at an additional charge?
You bet! You get the first 60 days free, and then the optional subscription for your own website link is $9.99 / month, or you can choose to pay for a full year and get 15% off!
Are there any inventory requirements?
Nope! Once you’ve purchased your starter kit, you are never required to make another personal purchase from Sseko. Fellows primarily use the items in their Starter Kit to show the product to customers and then submit orders online. These orders are directly shipped to the customer. Fellows are also welcome and able to purchase product at discounts up to 50% off to sell directly to the customer if they so desire.
Are there sales quotas to remain Active?
To remain active, Fellows must reach $500 total combined sales over the course of the past six months. (For context, a single Trunk Show typically generates $550 in sales!) Fellows retire if they are not able to hit $500 in total combined sales after nine months. This is so much more of a relationship than a deadline, and we definitely work with you way before that point to make sure being a Fellow is still a good fit for you!
Are any bonus earning opportunities available?
Definitely! We have tons of bonuses and extra incentives available, from extra cash to earning a free trip to Uganda and more!
What are the consultant requirements (age, location)?
The Sseko Fellows program is open to anyone in the U.S. who is 18 or older (It’s open to individuals under 18 with parental consent as well!)
