The Perfect MLM

Aug 17, 2007
Are you feeling frustrated, overwhelmed or confused in your quest to find the perfect MLM? You are not alone and there is good news. The good news is there is no perfect MLM.

So instead of spending your time exhaustively researching every single network marketing opportunity available looking for the one that is perfect, it means that you can do your due diligence, investigate the opportunities that resonate most with who you are and then choose the MLM that's perfect for you.

The key things to consider when evaluating an MLM opportunity are the product, the compensation plan, the team and the current market trend.

In your search you are bound to run into companies and people claiming that their opportunity is the ideal. Different companies market different products and they all claim to be the best in their line. Each claims to be selling the best skin care, nutrition, aromatherapy, insurance programs, investment opportunities or even online digital products.

Let's face it. There is no such thing as a perfect MLM, just like there is no such thing as a perfect church or perfect government. Network Marketing companies are just like normal companies in the sense that there will always be administrative and operational issues to deal with.

Take the skin care industry for example. There are many skin care products that have long histories, extensive research, powerful testimonials, and so on. But no matter how good the skin care product is, it will not benefit every single person on the planet. We are all different. Some have drier skin. Some are more sensitive. You can't prescribe one product that will be all things to all people.

Likewise with teams. Certain teams are more suitable for younger crowds with all the excitement and the hoo-hah going on. Others are for a more mature crowd.

Before joining a company, you must always remember in MLM that if you want to make serious money, you must be prepared to be in it for the long haul. There are people who tell themselves, if I can make $500 to $1,000 part time/on the side, I would be happy. They do not set their goals high and what happens? They give only part time or half hearted effort which often doesn't even help them make the $500 that they wanted in the first place!

Others think to themselves, that if they can find that one network marketing opportunity and look for 2-5 downlines, which will do the rest of the work (network building) then they will be set for life. MLM requires commitment and consistent, focused effort. MLM is a business that appreciates in value over time.

Which would you rather earn? $10,000 a day every month or $0.01 doubling every day per month?

Ten thousand a day would seem like a lot of money on the first day compared with getting one cent on the first day? Most would choose the first option, but consider.

$10,000 for 30 days is $300,000. If 31 days, then it would be $310,000.
1 cent doubling every day would produce a whopping $5,368,709.12!!!
If we add one more day the total will be over 10 million!!!

Don't despair if you don't make substantial money over the first 6 months. Those are your training months. Remember again, no one succeeds in the MLM industry without learning and hands on experience.

Learn to pace yourself. Rome is not built in a day. But do it at a pace that respects your financial resources. Ask yourself:

Can I afford the joining fees?

Am I prepared for the overhead costs?

Can I survive if I don't make money in the first six months?

Am I willing to be coached and prepared to learn?

Once you have made your choice get started on the right foot by plugging yourself into the system immediately. Attend live events and teleconference trainings repeatedly and listen to your upline. If your upline is not qualified, the keep going upline until you find someone who can coach you or mentor you. Immerse yourself.

Once you have downlines under you, you must be prepared to be a leader and duplicate what your upline has taught you. Duplication is the key to building a long term business because your downlines are able to do the same thing you are doing to create a successful team.

It's important to remember that Leaders are not born, they are developed over time. Those who succeed in MLM have to pay the price of learning and growing. Are you prepared to pay the price?
