Reseller programs for hair care professionals

Have you ever purchased a car and been asked if you want XM or Sirius radio? What about a laptop combined with Microsoft Office? Even better, ever tried to get your phone serviced at a store that has your carrier’s logo but been told you have to take it to an company store? These are prime examples of resellers. Companies that have permission to sale goods and services for profit on behalf of others. Soon, I will begin to write about reseller and affiliate programs as a means of increasing your income. But before I begin I realize not everyone knows what resellers and affiliates are. So here is a quick definition.

(From Wikipedia) A reseller is a company or individual that purchases goods or services with the intention of on selling them rather than consuming or using them. This is usually done for profit (but could be onsold at a loss). One example can be found in telecommunications, where companies buy excess amounts of transmission capacity or call time from other carriers and resell it to smaller carriers.

Another example of this occurs on the Internet where individuals or companies act as agents for ICANN accredited registrars. They either sell on commission or for profit and in most cases, but not all, the purchase from the registrar and the sale to the ultimate buyer occurs in real time. These resellers are not to be confused with speculators, who purchase many domain names with the intention of holding them and selling them at some future time at a profit. Resellers, by the very nature of their business are retailers.

Another common example on the Internet is in the web hosting area, where a reseller will purchase bulk hosting from a supplier with the intention of onselling it to a number of consumers at a profit.
