Why Most People Will Never Make A Dollar With Their MLM

Jan 4, 2008
Multilevel marketing or MLM is a very popular business these days. Multilevel marketing has taken on a life of it's own. Many people have made tons of money from multilevel marketing and others have been scammed completely by multilevel marketing companies. What makes building a multilevel marketing business so tough? Why do so many people not make any money in multilevel marketing companies? I will answer these and other questions in this article. I will also go over what to look for before joining a multilevel marketing company. Not all multilevel marketing companies are bad companies, there are some good companies out there, it is just a matter of you finding them. Remember there is nothing free in life, everything has a price. There is no such thing as something for nothing. It takes dedication and effort in order to succeed, which brings me to my first point.

Many MLM companies advertise with the get rich quick mentality. I'm sure you've seen the ads like "Make a million overnight" or " Learn how I made $150,000 in 48 hours!". Most of these ads are false. It just does not happen for the average person. Many MLM companies use ads like these as their hooks to get people to sign up. Many MLM companies are playing on people's greed. I am not a believer in it's too good to be true because it is very possible to earn large amounts of money. But earning large amounts of money requires work, period. You will have to put in effort to make the money they are talking about.

Next you have to look at the compensation plan. Why? Many multilevel companies have screwed up compensation plans. Actually do the math and see if it makes sense. I have seen compensation plans where you could have one thousand people in your downline and still not be making any money. Many MLM companies are setup this way so the MLM company is the one making any real money.

You also want to look for a product. No product and it is a pyramid scheme. You should also be able to just sell the product alone without ever having to recruit anyone.

Now many people cannot make any decent money with MLM's because they are not producing enough numbers. It is all a numbers game. Many people join an MLM company and then told to write a list of their warm market. After they are then told to invite them to a hotel meeting, or a conference call. Most people spend all week trying to get 1 or 2 prospects to sign up. Going after 1 or 2 prospects a week will never build you the downline you will need. There is a high turnover rate with MLM companies people quit all the time. In order for a person to be effective they must have a large number of prospects joining every week. Most people have no clue how to do this which is why they end up failing. There is a stat which MLMer's use, they say the average person who joins a MLM company will only bring in 2 new prospects. Becoming successful in an MLM company is all about getting a large number of prospects to see what you have to offer weekly.
