About Damsel in Defense
Damsel in Defense, found online at DamselInDefense.com, is a new company that promises to give their customers access to high quality self defense products, as well as a multi level marketing opportunity.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, the Damsel in Defense company was started by a group of women who looked at the US national statistics of crimes against women and realized that the average woman would greatly benefit from not only an understanding of self defense knowledge and awareness, but also products they could actually use to defend themselves in a “worst case” scenario.
This company offers their customers Conceal & Carry Purses, Stun Guns, Pepper Spray, and more, all of which are designed to be not only effective at their purpose, but are also stylish and make “great accessories.”
Customers can purchase their products at Event Parties where a Damsel in Defense representative will speak to you about each product and how to use it, as well as general safety awareness and self defense strategies.
At these parties you can also speak to the representatives about representing the opportunity yourself, if you are interested in participating in a multi level marketing company.
This website does not publish the price of any of their individual products. Instead, they prefer for their customers to contact one of their representatives to discuss their prices directly and answer any questions you may have. People who are interested in this opportunity can purchase one of their Starter Kits for just $149, with free shipping.
Much like their prices, this website does not openly publish a Refund Policy at this time, so when you speak to a representative about the products themselves you can also question them about what kind of Return and Refund Policy applies to the products you are considering buying.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who wish to contact Customer Service with questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 208-288-2989 or by submitting them directly to their website through their Contact Us link.
While this company does appear to have positive reviews, multi level marketing companies are always difficult to evaluate based on their online reviews. Since recruiting new members to the opportunity is one of the most valuable ways of earning money with an MLM, it benefits the company to have everyone involved with their opportunity spend time and effort praising the company online.
This company does seem have a good reputation for the quality of the products they sell, so if you are considering hosting a party or purchasing one of their items, you should probably feel comfortable doing so.
The issue comes when you are considering becoming a representative of this company. Though they offer an affordable buy-in cost for their Starter Kit, this actually not a good company for people who are brand new to MLM or direct sales opportunities.
There are two reasons for this. The first is that in order to keep your representation active and build your downline, which you must do in order to be successful, you have to make a certain amount of sales or recruitments during your first 90 days, and this can be extremely difficult for someone just getting to understand this industry.
The second is the type of products sold by this company. While their products do seem to be of a good quality, they are essentially one-time or long term purchases. Customers aren’t going to need to purchase a stun gun each month the way they would with health or beauty products, which means that representatives will constantly to be searching for brand new customers, rather than building a loyal customer base.
Just because this opportunity may be challenging doesn’t mean it’s not a good opportunity, it just seems more appropriate for someone who already has MLM or sales experience.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are many different companies that specialize in self defense products, like pepper spray and stun guns, as well as many different companies that provide multi level marketing earnings opportunities. People should consider what is they are really looking for before searching for an alternative to this company.
