As someone who works with Gen Zers on a daily basis, within the QNET corporate team and with our IRs across the globe, I cannot emphasise enough the vital role Gen Z entrepreneurs play in the future of direct selling. In my experience, here is what I have found to be important to that generation of budding entrepreneurs and how direct selling can be exciting for them..
An Insight Into The Values Of Gen Z
One thing that stands out among Gen Z is their love of flexibility and their desire to make a difference. Several of their values resonate deeply with what we already do at QNET. Here are just a few such insights.
- Brand Authenticity
Gen Z loves brands that have a clear voice and a sense of purpose. They value transparency and like to make a positive impact with every interaction. They are also planet-aware and are very keen on sustainability.
- Innovative Products
They buy products that are extensions of their self-identity. Therefore, they are looking for quality and sustainable products that not only enhance lives but also give back to communities or reduce the negative impact on our planet routinely. Gen Z values efficiency and simplicity and is willing to spend money on quality products that last.
- An Enriching Career Opportunity
When it comes to work, Gen Zers are looking to be a part of a family that offers them a healthy work-life balance and the ability to bring their unique skills to the table without being a cog in the machine. They thrive when there are opportunities for professional and personal skill development, and like to be part of something that makes a difference.
6 Ways To Get Gen Z Entrepreneurs On Board With QNET and Direct Selling
