How To Choose A Network Marketing Company

May 19, 2008
Choosing the right network marketing business opportunity can be difficult. Even though the product lines are different, the business models for these opportunities are basically the same. You may know that the failure rate among distributors is high, but the failure rate among network marketing companies is just as high.

The truth is that companies come and go each month. This might be another reason why this industry has an appalling reputation. This might be another reason why it is difficult to attract potential prospects to these opportunities. It is hard enough being successful in these types of businesses without wondering whether they will still be going in six months or twelve months time.

However, we still hear success stories from people who have entered network marketing businesses during the establishment of these companies and have made fortunes by doing so. These businesses went on to be one of the top network companies in the world, both in terms of successes in product sales and the amount of distributors in different countries.

You must be warned that successful network marketing companies are few and far between and here are some of the aspects to consider when choosing the right network marketing business:

-Does the company offer products which are similar to other companies in the marketplace? If so, are the products which you want to promote better than the other companies` products.

-How old is the company which you wish to join? If the business is new, be careful. If the company has been around for at least five years, then it could come under consideration.

-The financial structure of the business should also be viewed. How solid is it? Does the company have the financial resources in order to survive the initial start up and settling in phase? Many of these companies go bankrupt while trying to get established and this is due to the lack of capital.

-You must also investigate the management structure of the company- in other words, who is running the company. Do those at the top of the management system have a proven track record in this industry such as having success with other network marketing companies? If so then this would be a definite plus.

-If your goal is to create a large income then joining a network marketing company which has been around for twenty, thirty or forty years may not be a good option. Although these are great companies, they have already experienced their major growth boom and it would be difficult to acquire a large income with such a structure.

The situation with network marketing businesses is no different than with traditional businesses and it surviving the first five years which is critical.
