QNET, a prominent e-commerce based direct selling company, has shared some key truths about its business model and warned the general public against individuals who engage in unethical marketing and dubious promises.
Last month, QNET launched a 360-degree marketing and advertising campaign in Ghana. The Campaign’s main objective is to educate the public about QNET’s business and highlight the red flags associated with a scam. The campaign will be running across other sub-Saharan African countries where the company operates.
QNET launched the anti-scam campaign to avoid any misunderstanding of how the internationally recognised direct selling industry works and to warn about unethical practices by certain individuals who misuse the QNET name and present the business model as a get-rich-quick scheme. Below are some key facts and truths about QNET.

WHAT IS DIRECT SELLING?
Direct selling is a method of marketing and retailing goods and services directly to the consumers, away from permanent retail premises. Such type of sales is largely driven by word-of-mouth referrals.
