There are so many network marketing business out there, it is scary.
Network Marketing has been here for a long time. I think Avon is the oldest one. It has been around since 1886. Since then the concept has grown a lot and many other companies have followed. Type MLM or Network Marketing in your browser and the list will be very long.
We all hear about those get rich quick businesses.
There sales pitch is to make 6 or 7 figures income in months or sometimes weeks. It results in pushing people away from this business because they are not common numbers. Most people will make some money but not those figures, which is why most will quit after a few weeks, without giving it a chance. We all know someone that has a negative story about network marketing but we don’t take the time to look for the one that succeeded. You don’t ask a plumber for your car repairs. You ask a mechanic. The same goes for Network Marketing, ask someone that is successful. They will tell you the truth about it. If you don’t know anyone, ask me. I know a few that are very successful and many the are making some money.
Network Marketing is like any other business, you need to work at it if you want to succeed. To many promises are made when you join. Make tons of money for just a few minutes a day, they show you a picture of a pay cheque, and make you think that is typical. In my opinion, that sales pitch is long gone, and if you see that, run away. I don’t think you can make tons of money at first by working just a a few hours a week. Your income will depend on your efforts.
Choosing a company to get involve in, is very tricky. You need to do a lot of research because there is still a lot of bad ones out there. If you can’t trust a friend to recommend one then I recommend you look for this:
- First Product
- Second Company
- Third Timing
It all depends on the product and the company.
To start, if there is now real product, run. You need to have a product that you can sell. New on the market if possible. If there is no product, it is not worth the investment in my opinion. It falls in the scam category for me.
How long has to company been around. Is it worth investigating.
The company has the be strong. It has to have been in business for at least five years. I also look for very few complaints at the BBB of the country the head office is located. I say a few because there will always be someone not happy with something. I don’t believe in disregarding an opportunity for just a few complaints. Look if the the owner of the company has had many similar company under different names. Big flag for me.
But in my opinion, timing is crucial.
Timing is crucial for me. If the product you are trying to sell has been around for a while, it is harder to sell in my opinion.Your community has already tried it and either loves it or hate it. On the other hand, if it is new to your area, people will be curious and want to try it. If you have a great product they will by it again, and again. Guaranty to sell your stuff. Which means $$ for you. It also means it will be easier to get new prospect and may be sign them under you.
If you think network marketing is for you and are looking for a new product, I can recommend some.
