These well know lines by Rudyard Kipling offer sound advice for many situations in life. They can be usefully applied if you're thinking of getting involved in network marketing or any other type of work at home business.

WHAT can I do to make a profit? Simply put, you provide a product or service in return for money. Don't worry if you don't "have" a product - just get one from somebody else and then sell it on, or get involved in an affiliate marketing scheme. Successful merchants have been doing this for thousands of years.

You don't have to makerepparttar product yourself. You don't even have to own it. You can simply sell it on someone else's behalf and then take a percentage ofrepparttar 148326 profit.

If possible, try to market a product or service that is provided on a monthly subscription basis. That way you will get your percentage every month - residual income.

Do not get involved with any business that doesn't have a genuine product and which pays you for recruiting others intorepparttar 148327 business. This type of arrangement is characteristic of a pyramid scheme.

MLM Training Newsletters- The Top 17 MLM Newsletters in Network Marketing

Written by Doug Firebaugh

A good MLM training newsletter is worth a million dollars to a distributor in Network Marketing. Many Network Marketing newsletters/ezines can be found out there, and there are some really good ones. But there are also some newsletters that are not so good.

What do you do? Subscribe to them all and read them for a year, and then decide yourself? (Youíve got to be kidding!)

You donít have to. We have already done that. We subscribed to over 100 MLM training ezines, (whew!) and found some really good ones, and others that are ones we cannot recommend. (There were 14 total people that readrepparttar newsletters regularly, andrepparttar 148276 top 17 list isrepparttar 148277 consensus ofrepparttar 148278 14 people.)

What wererepparttar 148279 criteria that we used to look at these network marketing newsletters?

1)Constant fresh and unique training content.

We looked for a consistency in content, and fresh content. Many newsletters we found ran some ofrepparttar 148280 same articles in their ezine. Others changedrepparttar 148281 titles, and keptrepparttar 148282 contentrepparttar 148283 same.

We simply asked this question: Isrepparttar 148284 content unique and fresh and trains folks, not just motivates them. Many ezines were a lot of motivation, but little training. There is nothing wrong with that, but if you are looking for a training newsletter, it can be a little frustrating. What we found is that many were highly motivational, but not educational. We support motivation by all means! But we could not include them in our top 17 MLM training ezine list.

2)Delivery ofrepparttar 148285 newsletter regularly.

We found that many ezines were emailed out every once so often, and not on any kind of a schedule. We felt that if you are going to be depending on a training letter as a way to learn this business, then you need to know thatrepparttar 148286 delivery of content will be consistent, and dependable.

Either once a week, or twice a month wasrepparttar 148287 average delivery time ofrepparttar 148288 most read newsletters, and that seems to be what people are looking for.

3)Topics focused on for whatrepparttar 148289 distributor needs to learn to succeed.

The best newsletters we found had a focus of topics that would be whatrepparttar 148290 average networker would need to know to create a successful business. These topics include recruiting, prospecting, approaching people, handling objections, doing presentations, following up, closing, training, building a downline, motivating your group, leadership, personal development, doing events, new distributor training, and advanced training in MLM and Network Marketing.

Many ofrepparttar 148291 newsletters were too focused on one or two topics, and never varied for a more complete training program. There is nothing wrong with that, but a total training focus is what we were looking for.

4 The Look and Feel ofrepparttar 148292 MLM training newsletter.

Many ofrepparttar 148293 newsletters were only text, no graphics, but had great content. Many ofrepparttar 148294 newsletters looked incredible, but their content was very weak. We found thatrepparttar 148295 best training MLM newsletters had both. Evenrepparttar 148296 text ezines were well put together, and had great content. A great example of that is Tom Big Al Schreiterís Fortune Now Newsletter. It contains great stuff and itís all text.
