Choosing a Good MLM Company for Your Business

Jan 18, 2008
One of the important things you need to consider when you look into network marketing is choosing a good MLM company. There are many companies out there but not all of them are legal and above board. Some are run by rank amateurs others by unscrupulous scammers. However not all are bad and you will need to be able to differentiate between them here are some points to help you research the MLM company before you begin.

1. Check out the company: when choosing a good MLM company it is wise to do your research into the actual company. Are they a solid strong company that is well established? Do they have a good reputation? You can check out their credentials on the forums, and Google search. They should also have an about us page describing their company.

2. Do they have good training? It is important for any company that you join to provide good training. This will not only help you but your team members. Leads will be more inclined to join your opportunity if there is good training available. They will feel confident that the company wants them to succeed and be more inclined to join. You will also feel better working for a company that cares about their members.

3. Do they have good reliable support? A good company will have an easy way to contact them. They will offer a web form, and a phone number. When you call them you should not just get sent to a recording but are able to talk with a live person. Some companies even offer live help. The more ways they have to contact them the better it is and the more confident you will feel about them.

4. Commissions: Be sure that there is a good system for getting your commission. Ideally you should be able to get compensated 3 ways. One for selling product, secondly for recruiting team members and thirdly a bonus for getting a certain amount of team members or selling a certain amount of product. Be sure to read all the fine print about this, as this area can be a little confusing and some companies do not pay well.

5. Products: Never join a company that emphasizes recruiting only and has no real product. Companies that rely on recruiting alone are known as pyramid schemes. You will be very unlikely to make any money on these. Besides they are illegal in many states in the USA and also in a lot of countries. You do not want to get in trouble with the law for just a little money. It is important to like your company's products and feel proud to sell them. You will often recruit team members by selling product to them and if they like the product they will also feel good about selling it to others.

With these few points you will find it easier to choose a good MLM company. Do your research well and read everything you can before you sign up. If possible sign up for free and check the company out before you pay any of your hard earned money.
