The 4 Things to Consider When Choosing a Network Marketing Business to Join

Jul 16, 2008
Choosing the right network marketing business - or any type of business for that matter - is a critical decision that determines success or failure. If a network marketing business is your dream venture, here are 4 things you should consider when choosing which business to join:

The company background

In network marketing, the more established the company, the easier the brand is to sell. When choosing a network marketing business to join, look for a company that has been around for a while, say, 3 to 6 years for offline companies and about 2 to 3 years for online network marketing companies.

The reason is that the initial stages of a network marketing business' life are usually unstable. That is why many network marketing businesses fold after just a short while.

There are also companies that are 'ground floor opportunities', the kind you will have to join as one of the first members in order to gain advantage. However, 'getting in at the top' can be risky and it's not for everyone. Consider this option carefully if it's attractive for you. If not, go for more stable network marketing companies you can grow with.

The product

The thing that drives a network marketing business is its product or the range of products it carries. Choose a network marketing business with products that you find attractive and that you know will sell. Your enthusiasm will impact how well you will perform as a network marketer. If you dislike or mistrust the product, it will show.

If there are multiple product lines, consider the ones that you like best. Focus on selling cosmetics and household products, for example, if you're the type who likes to sell to women.

Second, always choose a network marketing business that offers quality products. Quality will always sell because people will always look for value. That will help you compete with rival networking companies effectively.

Lastly, consider whether the products will sell or not. Some network marketing products are one-time deals or at least take a long time to replace. That means you will have to sell to more people. However, there are also products that are consumables, the ones with high re-order rates, so there is a continued demand for them. Try to see whether the products already have a strong market and if they will continue to enjoy patronage.

The management

In order for a network marketing business to succeed, you will need a management team that is experienced and competent. Choose a business that is managed by people who have the training and background to be network marketing leaders. Remember that these will be the people who will be making all the decisions that will determine whether or not the business succeeds.

And yes, do watch out for people who have been associated with scams before. If you find them working in the network marketing business you're considering, do some research about their past activities and any complaints that may have been lodged against them.

The compensation system

When choosing a network marketing business, consider how you will be compensated for your efforts. Stay away from businesses where commissions from recruitment fees will be the main source of your income.

Choose a network marketing business that offers real products that you can derive sales commissions from. If you can earn from the recruitment of new members, it should only be a secondary source of your earnings.
