As a retired VP Marketing for a very successful Internetional MLM company, I am addressing concepts of MLM as they 'impact' you, new or inexperienced distributor.
Network (Multi-level) Marketing is exactly same as any business, anywhere, as it has a corporate center and top level, through to new recruit at entry level. BUT, there is a significant difference!
As with age old computer phrase, 'Garbage in = garbage out" some MLM corporations have 'garbage' at top or close to top and it is this 'garbage' that will destroy your business.
IF management has an attitude and/or does NOT recruit competence at TOP what happens at bottom? "Training" or what some MLM companies call 'training' must start with top and work down. Top-incompetence therefore leads to bottom-incompetence 'unless' you 'learn-the-rules' and then 'learn-how-to- break-the-rules.
One rule that I witness over and over is rule of "OUR WEBSITE IS GREAT - USE IT ONLY". Have any of you noticed how GREAT, 'their' website is?
Let me correct that statement! Have any of you analyzed corporate website to determine what message is and how your "target prospect" receives that message?
What if you direct your prospect to corporate website and "they" promote themselves and not you?
How about corporate office that does not understand "features" versus "benefits to consumer"?
