Cycle 2. The Yankee Peddler
Talk to any scholars of the direct selling industry and they will generally track the roots of direct selling, network marketing and multilevel marketing to the legendary Yankee Peddler. In fact, few in the industry know the specifics of the Yankee Peddler, but clearly regard that individual as a "founding father" of the industry.
The origins of the Yankee Peddler are to be found in Connecticut in the late 1600's. It was at that time that the Connecticut colonists, mostly farmers, began to produce beyond their own needs and to export to other countries. In the early 1700's, manufacturing first appeared in Connecticut, including clockmaking, shipbuilding and silversmithing. In the 1740's, two brothers, Edward and William Pattison, became the first producers of tinware in North America. And they took to the road. The two brothers became the first of many New England "Yankee Peddlers." Traveling in small carts, the Yankee Peddlers went house-to-house, throughout the young country, selling a variety of consumer products from New England. At the turn of the 19 th century, long before the era of shopping malls, direct mail, television home shopping or Internet e-commerce, they became a fixture of American history and a channel of distribution.
Just as today's direct sellers, the earliest American direct sellers, the Yankee Peddlers, were not without controversy. They were regarded as shrewd salesmen. Stories arose accusing them of selling wooden nutmegs. As a result, it was said, Connecticut was given the nickname, the Nutmeg State.
