At times, you'll meet people who you think would be great prospects for joining in your MLM or network marketing opportunity with you. The only problem is they are opposed to MLM concept and don't want anything to do with one.
So how do you respond to their complaints?
Below is a listing of some of common argument about MLMs AND more importantly, some good information to combat those arguments.
Argument #1 -- MLMs are just Pyramid Schemes Designed to Rip People Off.
First off, make SURE you are in a REAL MLM that actually accomplishes something because that will be your best argument. You should be making your money from product sales NOT "headhunter fees" or money collected from signing new members. That is questionable and not readily defendable.
A true MLM, however, is simply a distribution system that allows individual people chance to create income for themselves through distribution process. It is shaped like a pyramid, yes, but then what distribution system isn't?
A factory that fills several warehouses, then sends products to multiple distribution centers, then out to hundreds of districts, then thousands of stores, and finally millions of consumers still takes on pyramid shape. That's just how distribution of any product is accomplished.
In an MLM, however, that distribution process pays money directly to as many individuals as can sell product. Now isn't that better for you than traditional system where all money stays at corporate level?
Argument # 2 -- I Don't Want To Have To Push Products On My Friends and Everyone Else I Know
First, ONLY join an MLM that offers products you believe in. Then, you won't be pushing anything, you'll be RECOMMENDING.
Also, think, I mean really think, about all of times you've recommended movies, foods, drinks, music, doctors, health products, books, restaurants, cars, equipment, appliances, web sites, games, sports, stores, and many other things to your friends and other people that you've met.
You do it all time, don't you? The only difference is that in an MLM, you get PAID for doing it, and you still are only recommending something that you believe in.
