Have You Got The Energy For MLM?

Written by Martin Avis

Continued from page 1

You will make a little money in a good MLM company by sellingrepparttar product. But usually, only a little.

The real cash only starts to flow when you reach a critical mass of recruits - all feeding small amounts of commission back into your account.

So, you have to ask yourself some honest questions:

* Do I haverepparttar 122576 time to devote at least 12 hours a day to building my business. (Believe me, any less and you will never get big checks.)

* Have I got limitless energy to keep on doing this day in, day out?

* Am I imaginitive enough to keep finding new ways of reaching people?

* Am I a highly persuasive sales person?

* Will I have a problem recruiting others?

* If and when I do recruit others, will I haverepparttar 122577 time and patience to train them inrepparttar 122578 best ways to runrepparttar 122579 business?

* Am I prepared to travel long distances to host recruitment meetings?

* Can I afford to advertise to get leads?

* Can I afford to do all ofrepparttar 122580 above for very little return for at leastrepparttar 122581 first 3 months?

I know from repeated personal experience, and that of many, many others that unless you can answer yes to all ofrepparttar 122582 above questions, MLM isn't ever going to make you a fortune.

And, as an observation, it seems to me that if you do haverepparttar 122583 boundless energy, limitless time, and superb sales talent needed to prosper in MLM, you would be far better off applying it to building your own business. That way you would keep allrepparttar 122584 profits.

That was ultimately what I did - and I haven't regretted it for a second.

MLM can be good. But go into it withrepparttar 122585 rose-tinted glasses firmly locked in their case.

Why MLM Doesn't Work for Me

Written by Dennis Eppestine

Continued from page 1

All this time, joining one "opportunity" after another, you're shelling outrepparttar money.

But you're also learning. Slowly but surely some of what you read begins to sink in. You realize that some ofrepparttar 122575 "opportunities" you joined were only opportunities for whoever started them.

The more I learned, andrepparttar 122576 more products I purchased, I began to see that first, I needed a product of my own; and second, that until I had one, I needed to be an affiliate of products I believed in.

There have been many things written about affiliate marketing (and I won't go into all of them here - maybe another article someday!), but it's been perfect for me.

Not only can I help others by recommending products, but I can earn money while doing it!

So while MLM might work out great for some, it's just not for me.
