Discover how to choose a successful MLM Business Opportunity

Aug 24, 2008
There is a lot of misconception about MLM business's, it is true there a lot of bad apples, and you should never jump into anything without first understanding how to choose a good system.

However this business model is perfect for anybody who has a desire to run thier own home business, and have some sort of people skills. There are no skills required, so long as you are willing to put the work in, treat it like any other genuine business, and can handle dealing with people.

The number one thing to understand, is what seperates an MLM business to the un-desirable Pyramid scheme.

You really need to read through the next couple of paragraphs very carefully, so you fully understand the difference.

A Network Marketing company supplies their product to consumers through a network of distributors, these distributors make a percentage from the sales or products that they sell, as well as from the products that people they sign up sell, hence multi level marketing.

Pyramid selling on the other hand, pays you for each new distributor that you sign up, unlike a product driven company that pays commisions for products sold. You really need to understand this as pyramiding is illegal in most countries.

2nd thing to consider is the age of the company in question.

With the average life span of any new Multi Level Marketing company only about 7 months, you should look for a well established company. A new MLM company might try to suggest that the earlier you get in the better the opportunity but this isn't so.

Truth is, if the company has a well established and trusted product, there will always be an ever expanding market, so it should not matter when you get in. If the opportunity diminishes over time, then your business will not succeed in the long run.

The 3rd thing you should observe when choosing an MLM opportunity, is if they provide you with all the training and resources to help you move the product, after all that is how the company will survive, if its distributors are successful.

But they should not have to pressure distributors, or make un-reasonable demands to move that product, the product should be able to sell itself. You should be aware that being a product driven company, they will expect you to sell some products and will reward distributors higher commisions and rewards for the more sales you make.

It just makes sense to reward behaviour that increases profits for the company, and this in turn increases profits for distributors.

There you have it, choose a well established company with a trusted product line, who provide full training and support, do your research, and make sure that there product driven, and then anybody can succeed without marketing experience.
