Internet Marketing can really Hurt your Network Marketing business

April 6, 2010 by admin · 3 Comments 

Watch out for Internet Marketers if you’re a Network Marketer. Most of the information from Internet Marketers is not appropriate for Network Marketing, watch out as it can be confusing and misleading. What’s the purpose of many Internet Marketers? sure they may seem to be providing some useful material but most of them are trying to sell you their system and selling their system makes them money and they often knock Network Marketing pretending that they have an easier way. They usually promise lots of money for very little work and little risk but if you get distracted from building your Network Marketing business it’s a huge risk and a high cost.

Network Marketing is proven and it pays real residual income don’t be mislead by false promises. They often say it’s not MLM or unlike MLM to make it seem like they are better and at the same time knocking our Profession. I’m not saying that We should not use the internet and internet marketing for our Network Marketing business but let’s not fall for the false promises. Yes, use the internet to build your Network Marketing business, but keep building relationships. Keep personally growing, and look after your people, they are the business.

Is 6 Months Long Enough To Succeed In Network Marketing?

March 30, 2010 by admin · Leave a Comment 

Is it essential to make a commitment to succeed in network marketing? I’m often asked about commitment, Well the internet has done a disservice to the profession giving people the impression one can make it in a short time ( like 6 months ) or something is wrong even suggesting it may be time to change companies.

Network Marketing is a Profession, look at any profession how long does it in full time study before you earn any money? Usually at least 3 years. After studying full time then how much does one earn? Often very little. Most importantly what happens if you’re in a Profession after studying full time working for a small income and then you want to retire? How much residual income would you get forever? I’d say nothing, no residual income.

In our Profession of Network Marketing if you worked for 3 years you can be generally assured of having built a residual income for life. I’m not talking about 3 years of a few hours every now and then. I’m also not talking about 3 years of not growing. In other words 3 years is not 3 years if you repeat the first month 36 times. The commitment needed includes Personal development and being open.

The first 6 months maybe meaningless in a sense a worse first 6 months maybe better if you learn more. After 3 years of reasonable effort it should be possible to earn an income of $2-5000 a month and then doubling that or more in the next 2-3 years and no ceiling as to how much can be achieved. Don’t forget I’m talking residual passive income. Is that worth making a commitment for?

Network Marketing beats anything Franchising, traditional business, or any other profession. Are you ready to commit? It’s worth the rewards of residual income, friendship, and satisfaction that is there for anyone who makes a serious commitment.

What’s A Quick Way To Tell A Scam or Opportunity?

March 29, 2010 by admin · 2 Comments 

there are many scams pretending to be legitimate opportunities,  it can be hard to identify a scam. What’s a quick way to determine a scam or opportunity?

A good question to ask is: would you sell the product or service to a family member and or friend you cared about? and at the price being charged? in other words would a well informed person buy the product or service at that price without wanting a business opportunity attached? this is one of the criteria some government agencies look at. what do you think? it’s sad when distributors say don’t worry about the value or quality of the product or service as you get a business opportunity included… warning walk away!

What’s The Biggest Problem In Network Marketing?

March 25, 2010 by admin · 2 Comments 

Choosing the right company is the biggest problem in Network Marketing. Some people believe the biggest problem is the product, the compensation plan, the upline or the timing, but really the most important problem is choosing the right company.

No company is perfect ( that is all the companies I have seen so far what about you?) there usually comes a time when there are some problems maybe it’s about choosing a company to have a problem with? what do I mean by that? Well let’s say there is a problem like how to interpret a company rule if your with a good company you can have a problem like say you missed a deadline to place a qualifying order ( genuine oversight) and the company will assist you to qualify and get paid. while another company in that same situation will stick to the rule even if it was only a few hours and not pay you. Yes the same rule but with a different company an entirely different outcome.

You can’t tell these kind of issues by looking at a website or reading policies and procedures this is where an experienced Professional can discern and support you to choose the right company. More so on choosing the right company…    What’s your experience?

If we as an Industry of Professionals communicate more together we can all support each other and the companies that give our industry a bad name will be exposed and will have to change or leave the business.
