So… getting into network marketing/multi level marketing looks attractive to you and you are considering joining one soon. That’s a fantastic idea! But are you sure the one you have chosen is worth your money and time? If your answer is no, then read the following questions to make sure you are on the right path. You may want to get out a pen and pencil for this one!
First of all, why are you joining this network marketing company?
Most people join to earn quick and easy money that can get them out of the cash crunch they are in. Some people start to become rich easily. Both these motivations do not result in a successful business. Believe me, I have been there. This business can only flourish when you have faith in the product you are selling. People can tell if you’re not and they won’t be either! Before you join a random network marketing company, see if you believe in the product or not. Join only if you are sure about the product value. You need to know if the product is available via distribution channels or retail shops or traditional marketing. Then, analyze how stiff the competition is. Are you able to get sales? You need to sign up customers to be successful. You need to become a preacher of the product. So, if you do not believe in it, then there is no way you can achieve success.
Next, do you know your upline?
Usually you would inquire thoroughly about a business partner before you invest, right? Do a background check of your upline. See what they actually make, who the founder is, what his or her achievements are, and if the company has a good reputation or not. If you are introduced to this world by someone you know, then ask yourself how much you know. You should be able to satisfactorily trust those above you before you get attached to the business. If you are told that you need to wait for a year or few months in order to see profit, you should consider that a red flag. A successful network marketing company will usher in results within a week or so if the product has broad demand.
Finally, what is the recruitment style?
Do you have to become a customer of the product you are supposed to sell? Can you join only if you get value from the product? If you do, then it is not a good idea to join. A forced sign-up pitch is rarely a genuine one. So, think about their recruitment style and select wisely. A lot of network marketing companies have wide-open promotional policies through advertising, social media, and websites. Sometimes you can design the promotion according to your needs. But sometimes it is more restrictive. A few companies prefer to do their own promotion. If you can take up fiercely competitive markets, then wide promotional polices are good for you. Otherwise choose a company that does its own advertising and promotions.
