PPAI Expo 2013Whether you are looking for a full-time, part-time, or 2nd income opportunity that you can operate from home, DFI’s program is second-to-none.

What began in 2002 has become the Industry’s most successful program for creating “INDEPENDENT” promotional products distributors. We were the first then…and still the best now.

What sets our program apart from our franchise and business opportunity competitors is just that… their programs are linked to either the franchise business model or the business opportunity model.

The Distributors First program for creating Independent Promotional Products Distributors is neither.  Instead, it is a “turn-key” program that gives you everything you need  to Connect you, Educate you, Train you & Support you (CETS) … without the encumbrances of franchise fees & royalties or hobby-based equipment, inventory & messy inks and chemicals. You never have to buy anything from us or through us … and you never pay us royalties or split your profits with us.

Instead, you are hiring us to be your consultants, to be your “team”; the coaches and mentors on the sidelines of your business … to help you build YOUR business.  In short…we help you win and achieve your goals.
