Another factor to consider is that almost all compensation plans require either a certain number of customers to be gathered or a certain sales volume to be reached before you’re eligible forrepparttar higher levels inrepparttar 144961 pay plan. If you focus all your efforts on gathering a downline but do not haverepparttar 144962 sales volume necessary to reach these upper levels of compensation, you will be actually giving away money to your upline, in most cases. Therefore, it makes sense to have your customers or sales volume in place as you build your downline, so you’re certain of being eligible for allrepparttar 144963 money due to you for your efforts.

A final factor to consider is that a major key in MLM success is to create a system that your downline can duplicate. As their upline, they will belooking to you for leadership and training and if you do not demonstrate to themrepparttar 144964 value of gathering customers, they will consider it lessimportant. This in turn will affect your overall sales volume. Again, in most compensation plans, group sales volume is a factor in reachingrepparttar 144965 upper pay levels and to reach this you need to train your entire downline to focus on gathering customers.

4)Do they ask questions that are focused on your problem, or questions that are focused on being a consultant?

There are many questions that consultants ask that are all part of being a consultant. You wantrepparttar kind of QUESTIONS that zero in onrepparttar 144913 solution to YOUR problem, not what they have learned to ask as a rote exercise. You are looking to hire them to solve a problem, not be a consultant. Make sure their questions are focused on moving you forward, not just creating conversation.

Brutal? Yes, Honest? Totally. MLM Consultants are not cheap, and if you are going to spend money, make sure that you get what you pay for, and get your challenge resolved. That is what MLM Consultants get paid for- to solve problems, not to engage in a fruitless boiler plate exercise.

5)Have they actually spent any time working Network Marketing and understandrepparttar 144914 culture,repparttar 144915 philosophy, and whatrepparttar 144916 REAL dynamics are to create Success in a group, and an MLM company?

I am amazed that there are “consultants” out there that have never spent an hour inrepparttar 144917 MLM field. They have never recruited anyone. They have never sold a product in MLM. They have never held a Company Event for a team. They have never done a presentation around a kitchen table, or a home meeting. They have never explained an MLM Comp plan to people before, nor do they know how. But yet, they sell themselves as an MLM Consultant.

Make sure that there is SOME experience inrepparttar 144918 field, as that alone brings a wealth of knowledge that many do not have. It is not easy building a successful MLM group and business. If you have not done it, then you are coming as an MLM Consultant, from more of a position of weakness than someone who has, and can explain what it took, and how to do it. It makes a lot of difference in understandingrepparttar 144919 business of MLM as well.

Experience is a MUST and that includes also working in an MLM Company in some form. That can be as simple as being part of an ‘Inner Circle” team that was familiar withrepparttar 144920 workings of a Network marketing company. Having worked for an MLM Corporation is a big plus as well.

These arerepparttar 144921 5 Traits you should look for in an MLM Consultant. There are more you need to consider, but these arerepparttar 144922 5 MAJOR ones when considering MLM Consultants.
