DSSRC Administrative Closure #185
The Direct Selling Self-Regulatory Council (“DSSRC”) contacted a direct selling company (the “Company”) regarding one social media post disseminated by a company salesforce member. Some of the language in the post made an atypical representation regarding the level of income that a salesforce member could expect to earn from the Company’s business opportunity. The post was identified by DSSRC pursuant to its ongoing, independent monitoring of the direct selling industry.
The company immediately responded to DSSRC’s concerns, seeking clarification about the specific language that needed to be addressed. The company then contacted the salesforce member responsible and the language in the post was modified accordingly.
As a result of the Company’s immediate, good faith actions to address DSSRC’s concerns, DSSRC administratively closed this inquiry.
