Looking for the next direct sales opportunity? Network marking or direct sales gives you a wide range of opportunities to sell a large amount of products. Selling Discovery Toys is an example of an mlm opportunity that may or may not attract you to selling their product.
I tend to think that people are more likely to enjoy selling discovery toys if they have children so they can take advantage of the wholesale toy discounts that they get.
But if you are looking into the Discovery Toy business opportunity, are you choosing the most lucrative mlm that you can? Is there something better?
Working for a mlm company is nice because you can be your own boss, work from home, the park, the beach or even from your bed.
Working the mlm day in and day out will be required so you will want to make sure you choose a company that has a product you like and use. It’s hard to sell something you don’t enjoy or make use of. If you are joining a mlm to make money, then you might want to rethink the whole venture after reading this post because your JOY for mlm might have withered to a pillowy pith of absent abundance.
All that being said, if you are a toy lover or a kid at heart, you may also enjoy selling Discovery Toys. Make sure that you have kid’s to give toys to and don’t show up to someone’s house without knowing how and why kids will play with the Discovery Toys you are trying to sell. It would be entirely too creepy if you showed up knowing nothing about kids and trying to sell a kid product. (Think Pedophile)
Selling Discovery Toys is done through a direct sales opportunity or a mlm (multi level marketing company). Discovery Toys is the very first toy mlm that I have had the pleasure of talking about in my mlm reviews. If any of you know another toy mlm out there, please share in the comments so I can add them to my list.
As a Discovery Toy Distributor (aka Discovery Toy Educational Consultant) you will be selling the product through at home parties, events and word of mouth. Discovery Toys is a great side job for professions that deal with kids on a daily basis such as child care centers, preschools, elementary schools and other similar educational institutions.
Discovery Toy MLM Review – Company History
Discovery Toys was founded in 1978 (the year when new homes could be built for about $54,000 and a pound of bacon was $1.20 Yummm)
Founded by a teacher, Lane Nemeth, Discovery Toys was made from a loan she took out to create the company. After about 20 years of being in business, Discovery Toys was bringing in well over $100,000,0000.00! After this huge feat, the company was sold to Avon (another established mlm company).
Discovery Toy MLM Review – Products
The Discovery Toys Product line is generally for children from birth to 8 years old. The toys are also used with students who have been diagnosed or who suffer from learning disabilities such as autism, Asperger’s and mental retardation.
The nice thing about Discovery Toys is that they offer a lifetime guarantee which is invaluable if you are a preschool or elementary educator. In addition, if you have a child with a learning disability, the toy will likely be used longer than a normal toy so a lifetime warranty is top notch. My only concern would be if they were to go out of business, however, they have longevity on their side and have proven to be a strong business opportunity to be a customer to and to be a distributor for.
The Discovery Toy Products Include The Following Categories:
- Toys that help develop independent play
- Toys that promote prolonged engagement
- Cooperative and team skill building toys
- Toys that encourage students to talk about play
- Toys that have completion objectives
- Toys that encourage pretend play
The Discovery Toy Products are also sorted by a variety of subject matter:
- Discovery Toys- Make Believe Play
- Discovery Toys – Social and Emotional Play
- Discovery Toys – Artistic Play
- Discovery Toys – Motor Play
- Discovery Toys – Sensory Play
- Discovery Toys – Construction Play
- Discovery Toys – Logic Play
- Discovery Toys – Language Play
- Discovery Toys – Science Play
- Discovery Toys – Numbers Play
- Discovery Toys – Reading Fun
You can find out more by checking out the Discovery Toys Catalog: http://issuu.com/dt_issuu/docs/dt-catalog-fall-us-2015-2016-final-?e=4684351/14805225
I wasn’t able to get the Discovery Toy Catalog to load right but I did get a chance to see some of their toys.
One was a Marble Deluxe kit where kids would learn cause and effect and I’m guessing it is one of the Science toys. It’s interesting because you really don’t find those types of toys at Walmart. It’s funny how some of the more simple toys out there are better for developing certain skills in children.
I really liked their Body Amazing toy that shows kids what’s inside of them. That’s the Science in me.
And finally, I was able to see a Logic Toy that reminds me of those rain sticks. I purchase one of these by Little Tikes not too long ago and I don’t see much difference in the Discovery Toy Product from what I purchased. The biggest difference is that I paid $7.00 and the Discovery Toy one is $40.00 ….Yikes!
This would be worth it for the lifetime guarantee only if you knew you were going to get more than 8 years use out of it. Know what I’m sayin?
The product pricing (what I saw) ranges mostly from $20 to $40, however, there are some toys that are larger kits and you build on to them that costs upwards of $100.00. I think there are some good deals for some of the toys, but I’m not sure I’d be gung ho about having a party and trying to sell the overpriced ones to my good friends.
Discovery Toys approaches their mlm opportunity as educational consultants because they believe toys need to be demonstrated. They are correct in doing this, because you will certainly sell more toys if you demonstrate them. I wonder if they have thought of setting up in toy stores, kind of like the food people in Sams Club. Imagine the number of toys you would sell just from having someone yap about how awesome they are!
Discovery Toys MLM Review – Making Money with DT
How do you make money with Discovery Toys?
In order to get started, as with most mlms, you need to have a sponsor. So step number one is to find someone who would love to have you in their downline. (This won’t be hard because this is a huge part of the rat race in the mlm world…no matter how established of a company you are joining).
Once you have your sponsor, you pay a registration fee and purchase a launch kit.
The DT Now Launch kit right now is just $49.00 in the U.S and you get to have all of the same opportunities as a DT consultant (Discovery Toys Consultant). You receive marketing materials and 3 of their top Discovery Toy products.
You have two other options for joining Discovery Toys. There is also a Business Launch Kit and a Business Builder Kit.
The Discovery Toys Business Launch Kit comes with top products, marketing materials and you get access to their training site along with a free deluxe website for two months. This costs $125.00 (I wonder what the ongoing costs are.)
The DT Business Builder Kit (Discovery Toys Business Builder Kit) comes with a ton of products from the Launch Kit and 23 EXTRA items. In addition you get logo items and marketing materials, training cds and the Deluxe website for a total of SEVEN months for $399.00
In terms of costs to start, these are very low for starting a business, but mind you that you have to treat this as a serious business opportunity or you will end up watching money slowly leak away from you.
The nice thing is that you can work on building your business on your hours and when it is convenient for you.

Tips to earn extra income by Selling Discovery Toys
After setting up you business, you will likely have to make sure you know all of the restrictions that you may have to follow when selling Discovery Toys.
Many mlm companies restrict the use of their trademark name and your ability to use their trademark in usernames, social media and domain names. This, unfortunately, can prevent you from accessing traffic that otherwise could be obtained.
The challenge is getting traffic to your site after you have used up all of your family, facebook and neighborhood contacts.
If you spend a few hours on your site a day, you might make some progress, however, there is a lot more to ranking and building sites than just adding content.
I know the iPAS2 opportunity offers for you to do a 30 day blogging challenging, however, many people do it and use huge amounts of their time and energy for 30 days only to find out that nothing has happened to help them advance…..unless you want to argue the development of a good habit.
Many people will quite before that though.
So how do you make money with a company like Discovery Toys?
How do you find your mlm leads?
You have to know how to rank your site, build a funnel and how to continually contact them via an email list to offer them things they can not resist.
Here’s the deal: Online marketing is not as easy as they say it is and you are going to need to get good at it if you expect to sell any type of mlm product.
On top of gaining access to legitimate mlm leads, you will need to learn the ins and outs of the compensation plan and make sure that you are placing your downline team in such a way that will maximize your profits. Small nuances can make a thousand dollar difference.
Even if the mlm opportunity says they have training, don’t count on it to help you through to the money mountain.
Thousands join mlm companies daily and they end up with empty pockets even though they have someone above them that is suppose to help train them.
Why don’t they become successful?
They are not successful because they need training and their sponsor likely needs the same thing. So there you have it. A huge mesh of people all grasping at the same thing and very few actually know how to build legitimate online money making sites.
How is this resolved?
IN walks Brad:
Brad has been there and done that and he has discovered a way to coach you (and me) on how to make money with websites outside of mlm that is much easier.
Actually, it’s so much easier that some people are making money in their first 30 days and others have already reached well over 10K a month.
Sounds unreal right?
There is a group of entrepreneurial misfits out there that are on a mission to become millionaires and take over the globe with their mad network marketing skills.
