In essence, before deciding to become involved in a multi-level marketing company and expect to make a profit, it is essential that you understand:
It is a selling proposition - you will be required to do at least some face-to-face selling - and it will require a lot of your time.
You must have a product line that appeals to most people - in other words, information or program/help that will enable people to fulfill their basic wants such as become rich.
Selling vitamins, wrinkle creams, even food, will NOT fulfill those needs because of intense competitionÉBut, appealing to those people who are already selling a product with a sales improvement or training program, can make you rich.
In addition to understanding what's involved, and a product line that most people want, and will buy from you, you need assistance - instructions and help - in not only selling product or products, but in how to find new customers on an ongoing basis. Once you've decided to try your hand at multi-level marketing, and you've become affiliated with a company that has a product line you feel will appeal to most people, and you have your advertising/sales materials, next thing is to determine how YOU want to sell it - will you be selling door-to-door, via home parties, public seminars, by mail, or a combination of all these methods.
Remember, amount of time you spend in actually trying to sell product will determine amount of money you make. The more presentations or sales calls you make, more money you're going to make - but unless you make those sales calls, you won't be making any money.
It's up to you to decide just how much time you'll spend with your extra-income producing project.
