Customer-Centric Recognition Program
Direct Selling News' Customer-Centric Recognition program celebrates companies that are leading the way toward a sustainable, customer-centric future for the industry. Qualifying companies utilize business models that boast high customer-to-distributor ratios and prioritize customer sales.
We need the mantra for this new decade to be that we are a customer-centric industry where we build strong retail bases, and the opportunity seekers follow. The more satisfied customers we have, the more successful distributors will be.
DSN Customer-Centric Recognition (CCR) Program Criteria
The CCR Program will be based strictly on a company’s *Customer-to-Distributor Ratio taking into consideration the following:
*Definition of “Active” Customers & Distributors
- Distributor — someone who DOES have a distributor agreement in place
- Customer — someone who DOESN’T have a distributor agreement in place
- “Active” means each Customer and Distributor must have made a product purchase during the last 6 months
Active customer and distributor counts are limited to those in the U.S. and Canada.
Customer-to-Distributor Ratio Recognized Categories
Gold Status — 5 to 1 or more
Platinum Status — 10 to 1 or more
