Direct Sales aka "party sales"
Direct Selling refers to selling products directly to the consumer in a non-retail environment. Sales instead occur in non-retail locations, such as a home, work, online, etc.
Direct Selling Representatives / Independent Consultants / Distributors typically work on their own, affiliated with a company and often the structure encourages recruiting persons to also sell the product.

New Direct Sales Policy for 2020
DGA greatly appreciates the interest and participation from all of our applicants in our events. Over the past couple years, we have experienced a significant increase in the number of applicants we categorize as Representatives / Consultant / Distributor with Direct Sales Companies. In the past we limited the number of Representatives / Consultant / Distributor (herein referred to as "Agents").
The Agent applying for the booth must also be the operator.
As our new policy aims to ensure equal participation,
all Agents must apply separately.
In the past it was sufficient to limit the number of Agents per event; however, with the increasing number of Agents, we have been asked to address equitable participation in our events. In an attempt to ensure more Agents are able to participate throughout our 2020 season Downtown Georgetown Association has revised our policy. Please read the information below for our updated policy regarding Direct Sales Agents.
Direct Sales Reps / Consultants / Distributors ("Agents") when completing the application, please choose the months you would like to participate. In order for us to be able to provide everyone timely notification of application status, the deadline for Direct Sales applications has changed: an application must be received no less than six (6) weeks prior to the date of an event. (Deadline dates provided below.)
Applications received less than six (6) weeks prior to
the date of an event will not be considered.
All applicants will be notified four (4) weeks prior to event.
Multiple Applications Received from Agents with the Same Company
As we frequently receive applications from Agents of the same company requesting the same month, this year (2020), for any month in which more than one application is received, DGA will hold a lottery (drawing); the results of which will be be emailed to all applicants.
The Agent selected to participate will be removed (if applicable)
from the following month to allow another Agent to participate.
Agents will only pay once approved. Also, the DGA Fundraising Event Coordinator will determine the location (aka “booth space”) for the event.
