If youíre not comfortable with risking your money, you can join an established network company.
The downside of this is that you may have a harder time getting recruits because many people are already members.
Of course, you can choose not to build a downline and just sell products, but youíll be alone in working. You only earn form what you sold.
In network marketing, your downline will work with and for you. You earn not only from what you sold but also from what your members sold.
Be reminded that in reality, recruiting people can be difficult in first place, let alone keeping those already recruited interested enough to be active. You must use all your salesman skills when joining a network marketing company.
If you want to try out network marketing, here are some tips to remember:
1.) As a member, you will get big discounts on products company is selling. Join one whose products you can use and love.
2.) Choose a company that focuses on quality of their products, not on networking, which should be secondary.
3.) When choosing a sponsor, make sure that he is efficient. He should be able to answer your questions. He should also treat his immediate recruits as a team. He should be a good motivator so you wonít get bored or frustrated
4.) Find out exactly where your money is going.
5.) Gather all information you can on company youíve chosen.
If youíre looking for get-rich-quick schemes, forget about networking. This will entail work, both in selling and getting recruits.
There are also marketing scams which you have to watch out for. Some companies only want your initial investment. Others are focused on recruitment and not on products.
When products arenít good, no one will buy them, and as a consequence, you and your downline will not earn anything. In end, it still boils down to working for money.
