Associated Myths in MLM

Aug 17, 2007
The MLM business is so popular among people that some of them are totally ignorant about the fact that it takes hard work and days of sweat to make it big. There are number of myths associated with MLM business. Whether a person is a fresher or an expert, anyone hardly knows about MLM business in depth. Some of the associated myths are:

Online MLM business makes lots of money in just one month

This is the most destructive myth among the lot of many such myths. People think it is the fastest method of getting rich. They pool in some money from here and there and invest them in MLM business. After a series of failures they realize that it's not just the money that is lost but time too. Only the established and experienced people earn about $ 1000 in a month or so. All those who start from the grass root level can never earn this much initially.

Companies lure by giving attractive ads

When some companies big promises it simply means that if you follow them you get ruined or the company gets ruined in a couple of years or so. Imagine you had made some residual income and lost it after a short span of time. How would you feel? A genuine business should multiply its own money and not divide it with time. Try to stay away from such lucrative but destructive ads. Don't believe them unless you find them out yourself. It can be fatal.

The more sales you make the more you generate money for yourself

The fact is totally opposite of what people think and say. Too many people come together and help each other but in the end make too little sales in MLM business. Distributors make money initially, sometimes quickly, by recruiting family members and friends etc to form a big downline. They get hefty commissions in return, that is how they make quick money. Gradually, all of them start losing all their money; simply because they couldn't mange to sell the product and all there effort and money go in vain. The bottom line is that you make money by enhancing your downline and not by making sales. Sales are the rare possibilities in MLM business.

You are the first member of the company's family tree and you construct the organization downwards

People jump and grab the opportunity thinking that they are going to be the director or the head of all the people they bring in to form a downline. They carry this attitude to work too and suffer all the more. Only with the passage of time do they realize that they are at the lowest level and there is no one actually superior or inferior to them. Ultimately they find out that there is actually no one in the organization. They begin and end at the same level. The factor or the attitude that works in MLM business is that everybody is at the same level. All of them should help each other and contribute their share of hard work to build the company.

In building a home based online MLM business, initially your work would demand you to bring in few but efficient people and provide them all the motivation and aid so that they make sales. Once the team is established and a helping attitude takes firm hold in the team, half the battle is won. To further build your organization just put in your heart and soul to it, nurture it, and let it grow naturally. Then there's no looking back. You would definitely make a mark.
