How-to Of Network Marketing

Dec 21, 2007
Many skeptics believe that network marketing is a scam - the pyramid scheme come to the tops of their lists. However, there are ways to tell the true businesses apart from those that just want to make a profit off of providing little to no service or selling little to no products. The Better Business Bureau can help you with distinguishing the good from the bad, just visit their site. If you can believe it, the ladies who drive the pink Cadillacs and sell make up are part of a marketing network. It all starts with one idea, one person to begin the business then they recruit others to do the same. In some network markets, (sometimes called Multi Level Marketing), only the people at the top make all the money, but those like the make up sellers make money on all levels. You see them all over: the kids who go door to door selling fundraisers. Sure, they don't get the money directly, but it works the same way. The vendor hikes up the price so that when they give a portion of the proceeds to the fundraiser they still make a nice profit. They used someone else to make money - network marketing.

Network marketing usually takes a small start up fee from you, to cover the sample kit for whatever product you will be selling. Just realize that you won't make a profit from what you sell - the person who recruited you will. In order for you to make some money, you need to recruit others. Someone who starts a marketing network usually goes in with their friends then each friend gets different friends in, and so on and so forth. The more popular the product is, the more successful your business will be and the more money people will make all around. Honestly, marketing networks are all about the product or sale. A comforting aspect of marketing networks is that they allow you to work from home and on your own time; you can truly be your own boss. However, there is a slight downside and that is if the people you recruit fail to sell the products, your profits could be lower than you would like.

So if you're interested in getting started, there are plenty of books written out there to read and tons of seminars to attend given by people that have made money from marketing networks. The internet is a good place to start too because you can not only find the business you'd be interested in starting, but check it out to make sure it's legit. Become educated on the business itself. Realize that if you have filled out any forms to receive more information, you will be called and let them know if it is not a convenient time - the legit businesses will understand. Understand that you will not make a load of money upfront in a short amount of time; these offers are scams. Most importantly, get out there and work!
