5 Reasons Why You Still Aren't Earning MLM Residual Income

Apr 4, 2008
You've been in the business for who knows how long and you still haven't received any MLM residual income. What have you done that's so wrong?

Many MLM distributors and managers, whether they're new or old in the business, fail to get the much-coveted residual income, the one that's supposed to let them lead rock star lifestyles. Why? Because they've committed any or a combination of the worst mistakes someone in MLM can make. A few of them are listed below.

Your ads focus on you and your MLM offer.

Brands like Chanel, Porsche, and even McDonald's can afford to make advertisements that focus on who they are and what they're offering because they've been around for a long time and people generally have favorable opinions towards them. All they need to do is stress their good points and strengthen people's loyalty.

But you can't afford to do that just yet. In fact, you might not be able to afford to do that at all. It's not a bad thing, but it only means you have to change your approach to advertising. In multi-level marketing, your focus must be on your customers. Your advertisements must connect with their inner desires. Instead of listing the various products your MLM has, you're better off listing the benefits that people with enjoy when they decide to join your MLM line.

You earned thousands of dollars from family and friends.

But it ends there. Loved ones can be generous and eager to help. It's good that you get to earn from them but you should also know that's all you're going to get from them. They won't be motivated to recruit other people to join your MLM business or sell your products and services. After all, the only reason they took part of your business was to give support. They don't want to do anything else after that and you can't force them to do otherwise.

You avoid approaching people who already know about MLM.

Admittedly, they may be harder to convince but what's there to lose? More to the point, why do you think you're going to lose in the first place? Would you have joined your current MLM company if you genuinely didn't believe in what it represents? Would you have joined the MLM company if it means having to deceive other people into joining? So why shouldn't you approach people who know about MLM? They may think they've heard it all before, but you can prove them wrong, can't you?

You've joined an MLM company that promises the greatest returns.

It's great to join an MLM company with such profit potential but that hopefully wasn't the most important thing that swayed you to join. If it was then you could be in big trouble. The promise of huge returns won't do you any good if you're essentially unsuitable to sell the kind of products or services the MLM company is offering.

If you want to finally earn the MLM residual income you desire, you should join an MLM company whose products and services you know of and believe in.

You don't take risks.

MLM may not be a conventional type of business but it's a business nonetheless. Consequently, it requires you to take risk from time to time. The kind of risk varies, but regardless of the type, you need to be ready for it. If you're not then you're in the wrong kind of business.
