Network marketing or sometimes known as Multi Level Marketing (MLM) is actually a good business. The market for this business is so big and the prospect is good.
One thing that we have to keep in mind is that not all of the MLM company will be successful.
Four things about MLM that we have to know:
1. Research the company first
You can research the company profile at Google website and type in the company name. Look for the information about the company as much as you can and ask your friends or people who knows about MLM.
Usually the company that is spam only stays no more than 5 years. The company that is not a spam usually belongs to a Better Business Bureau and US Chambers.
2. No Mentor
Most of the MLM company do not provide mentor on how to do the business. Basically they just telling you about the company profile and the level of commission that we could attain. Mentor is playing a quite significant role in the business especially for people who knows a little or none about internet business. From the mentor, amateur people can be guided step-by-step on how to do the business, where to do the promotions and how to take profit from the internet. In this case look for MLM that provide mentor to you so you will be supported along the way.
3. Full support from the team
Team support also plays an important role in the MLM business. If members support each other then the business more likely will last longer than just running individually. Members can support each other by sharing the techniques that they have to get leads and so on.
4. Consistent and Hard work
Just like doing any other job, taking this MLM job also requires hard work but of course you do not need to work 8 hours a day seven days a week. You do need at least to work on the job for 2 to 3 hours a day. If you still have a full time job, just consider this MLM job as overtime. We also have to be consistent in doing this job. This is not a get-rich-quick scheme so we have to be positive and do it consistently
In Summary, if you want to join any MLM business just keep in mind the things that I mentioned above. Dig a little deeper about the company and the whole process of how to earn the money and do it with consistency. It is not easy but with a team work, mentor and hard work we could be successful.
