Looking for a Good MLM/Network Marketing Company? Part 1

Do you know what sets apart an award-winning successful network marketing company that’s built to last from a legitimate-looking Ponzi/pyramid scheme that is a three to five-year company designed to implode? Yes – No? Well, let me clarify some things for you then.

We all know or are aware of the genuine success stories out there already: you know those successful people/couples walking across the stage receiving accolades, trophies, plaques and whatnot; but how do you recognize the signs of  companies that are scams?

Well aside from leaving hundreds if not thousands of scam-infected victims that talk and vomit about the dangers of our industry and how they got scammed, cheated and mistreated; here’s a clue.

All that really needs to happen in the first place is for marketing reps aka “distributors” to tell the real story. What I mean is let and show people the difference between legit and scammy-whammy, and why your company is a real BUSINESS and they should n’ t be afraid to join.

One obvious sign is “Recruiting is Everything”, which hides the fact it’s all about Money because you are getting paid to sponsor new people into the company (program). Hey! Wait a minute, all MLM/networking companies do that they thrive on new people joining their companies.

Yes that’s true, but these pseudo pyramid companies really really focus on this by primarily compensating people for bringing new people into the fold directly or indirectly. The company gets their distributors to keep filling up the seats in the airplane.

A real bona-fide mlm/networking business does promote sponsorship of course, however it specifically rewards representatives for the sales of products and services. A good reputable network marketing company sells its products on their own merit and thereby acquires repeat customers month after month.

If people wont buy your products unless connected to some income opportunity then joiner (business owner) beware.

Signs of a reputable MLM/Network Marketing Company:

  • Products or services stand on their own merit. Value is everything. How do they compare with other competing products in quality and price?
  • A large amount of customers. The higher the ratio/proportion of regular customers the better.
  • Repeat orders by customers – This shows VALUE.
  • A high average order size. This says customers/distributors are buying because of real value not just to qualify for a bonus level or promotion.
  • Large potential market for the products or services. This means these products or services are consumable. Another question – is the market declining or increasing?
  • Does the company have a “unique” or proprietary product which has bona-fide scientific research that stands behind it. How well substantiated they are?
  • The company has a special group of “preferred” or “direct” customers that do not sign up for the income /opportunity or business end of the plan, but buy their products directly from the company at a discount.
  • Reasonable product-return policies and adequate customer satisfaction for both distributors and customers.
  • And more …

This signs of checklist is by no way complete and for the most part is not all said and done in this one post, however based upon your comments and replies I intend to add to the list and give further explanations.

I think armed with this type of information you are in a place or have the posture (confidence) to talk to people who have gotten scammed, lost money, friends, time, family members to some type of pyramid scheme.

People are seriously looking for a better way to live, to make money, to enjoy their time and efforts and to leave a legacy for their families in this certainly troubled economic time. Opportunity of a lifetime – did you do your due diligence?

With best regards,

Is Multilevel Marketing a Business or What?

Hey Folks here’s a question  for you. Is multilevel marketing a nurturing, sharing business or a retail/sales business? Dah,dah.dah,dah, dah,dah,dahh-tada-daada  daah dada – answer? Wrong, it’s neither. It is a concept or a distribution model. It is a system of distribution for products and or services.

Most people including those involved in MLM confuse the issue by hearing and saying multilevel or network marketing is a sharing, caring, nurturing business and that is true, it is. But the fact remains, it’s not.

What makes multilevel marketing a business is basically seven things:

  1. An Industry
  2. A Company Name
  3. A Compensation System or Plan
  4. Products or Services
  5. A leadership or Management Team
  6. Timing and lastly
  7. Yourself

Many folks get involved with network marketing under false pretenses and wind up getting out  saying, “it did work for me, it doesn’t work, I tried it but I wasn’t making any money”. Only to find out they had the wrong approach, concept, facts.

Multilevel marketing is a distribution model and you need the other seven components  to make it whole, to make it a real business.

In every situation where there is failure you can check back to where it began. In the above list  of seven components you can find one or more reasons to blame. However, most never look at number seven because that would be looking in the mirror and seeing no flaw or fault. So it’s easy to blame network marketing.

I don’t want you to  do that – do something different this time. Check out this site and let me know what your thoughts are.

MLM; Network Marketing Equals Duplication

In the beginning it’s very hard to see how huge your network marketing organization can become. For some people it will take a little time, for others not and for most it will be in between.

The concept of multilevel marketing is a compensation plan or system designed to pay people commissions when products or services are sold to the consumer, and through a system of more than one level or generation consisting of your sales organization simply called a team. Most reputable multilevel marketing companies belong to the Direct Selling Association. This helps avoid a lot of confusion and association with less reputable companies out there known as pyramids.

Through duplication you will create a residual income you wish, but the question is what type of duplication would you prefer to use: old school (traditional) or attraction marketing through the internet?

Old traditional MLM duplication techniques required you make a list of 100 or more names, categorized it hot, warm or cold and start calling your friends and family with a script to get them into your business or if not, at least buy some of your products. Sound familiar. Yes, it does and it still happens to this day.

In the past farmers use to plow their land with a horse or a mule, now most of them use tractors and modern farm equipment instead of horses. But in fact old traditional sponsoring/recruiting tactics did and still does work today, but only with a lot of attrition attached to them.

Ninety-seven percent (97%) of the people who are looking to improve their lives and that of their families leave MLM and have a lasting bad memories due to a lot of these old school marketing techniques they use to build their business.

In the past many of these marketing skills worked for people who had money, influence, were coming from professional backgrounds, but they didn’t work a lot of times for the average Joe or Jane.

Nobody basically wants to likes to be recruited, that’s for the Army, but if you have integrity and really want to forge a relationship with your new business partners then attraction marketing is the way to go for the future.

As I said before duplication can create the residual income you and your family wants, but great duplication involves a process. It’s not how quick you reach a promotion and there’s nothing wrong with that, but it’s how long you last. It takes time to build a leader – just having someone do it fast doesn’t make that person lasts or makes a leader.

Great (value-based) duplication takes time. The length of time varies from person to person.  Ann Landers wrote, “people of integrity expect to be believed”.  That is why you should tell people up front it might take 3 to 5 years to create the residual income and time freedom they want from their network marketing business. This takes integrity and good moral sense.

People of integrity know time will prove them RIGHT and they are willing to build the business right and are patient when it is the most frustrating thing to do. However, as long as you or I is building the business actively it will come – it will happen.

“For all people everywhere who are ready to make a change. To make the world a better place with your business or product, here is your mission: Find people for whom this is the right thing to be doing. No one else. People who have the brains to appreciate things that you offer”.
