What Do You Mean I Work For An MLM?!!Written by Gary Kite
David Letterman once asked Donald Trump, 'If you lost everything and had to start again from nothing, what would you do?' He responded, 'I would find a good network marketing company and work hard.' The audience laughed. He then said, 'That's why I'm sitting up here and you're sitting down there.' The audience may have laughed first, but last laugh actually goes to Mr. Trump. Why? If laughers have a job, chances are company they work for is basically an MLM company.
Your response may be ĎHuh?í and that was my response also until someone who is successful in an MLM company pointed it out to me. But how can that be you may ask? After all I donít hang out in malls and bookstores waiting to pounce on anyone who gives me opportunity. Well itís pretty simple once you think about it. The company I work for has a CEO and then there are several executives under him. Then those executives have Vice Presidents under them, who have supervisors under them and, well get picture? So thatís Multi-Level part. Then of course, everyone in organization is encouraged to recommend services of company. If you work for a certain restaurant, you will recommend people go and eat there. Thatís Marketing part.
But thatís where similarities end. My hard work at my traditional job is rewarded, but people above me decide upon reward. In MLM, I am paid exactly in proportion to my accomplishments. In traditional company, slackers may get paid same amount as me or even more, based upon seniority, who they know, or simply because their slacking is not known. You slack in MLM and you will not succeed, no matter whom you know or for any other reason. In traditional company, I work hours I am told, ask if I can take vacation a certain week, take my pager and phone with me on vacation and sometimes even work on my vacation. Not true with an MLM company, since I am my own boss.
Of course, Iím not saying no one should work for a traditional company. That would be lunacy. We need them and their services and people do support their families by working for them. But isnít it hilarious that so many people hate MLM companies and then go to work for one every day. If you are going to work for one, why not work for your own?
Why Online MLM Business Has an Edge over Other BusinessesWritten by Joseph Then
There are many advantages of MLM business. One of them is that it is most suitable business for women. The risk involved in this business is less. For running any business you need to have a product or service. In other businesses product has to be either manufactured or bought and sold. In MLM business there are lots of benefits, like,
●You do not need to worry over manufacturing of product. You just have to choose a renowned product.
●You require very little amount to start this business. You have to pay just for start-up kit. These kits come in many ranges of price. You can choose one that fits your pocket in terms of budget.
●You do not have to spend much on promotional campaign as materials needed for that are already printed by MLM Company. You are supposed to buy these materials but expenses would be much less than where you get your stuff printed at your own expenses.
●The fact that you get to make money on sales of other people whom you recruit is most alluring.
●You can avail other benefits too. You have experienced people who are still in this field and successful too, to teach you nitty-gritty of this business. You also get literally trained too by some of companies.
●You can run an online MLM business. It has its own set of advantages. You do not have to bother your family and friends to sell your product or opportunity. Working online would make it possible for you to reach out to people in different cities and areas. All this would leave you with enough time in hand to relax and enjoy with your near and dear ones.
Do remember that you have to put in equal amount of hard work in running your business online as in other MLM businesses. You shall be facing tough competition from your rival consultants who would be selling same product as you would. This is almost similar to what you would be facing in off line business as well. Whatever be mode of your business, online or offline, make sure that you select a marketing plan that has less number of consultants.
