Are You Up To Success?
In its simplest sense, network marketing is a sales approach where the independent distributors make a successful sale by first building relationship and showing commitment in helping, guiding and training their new distributor at how to do same that they did. All the while they earn a commission from their new distributors as well as all other distributors recruited by the people they sponsor.
Otherwise called multi-level marketing, it is based upon the idea of each person involved selling to people they recruited, with each of these people in turn, introducing their recruits into the program. It's definitely an "endless chain" that has unlimited moneymaking potential.
If you recruited just ten people into the program. Then each of these 10 persons did the same, you would have 100 distributors in your second level, and if these people were to duplicate your efforts and these 100 distributors sponsor another 10 distributors each, you will have 1,000 distributors on your third level.
Assuming, you were been paid $2.00 monthly for each distributor in your downline that will total a monthly residual income of $2,220.00 of residual income monthly.
Multilevel marketing is popular and appeals to everyone because of its promise to all participants to get rich with a minimum investment, takes very little time and effort. It works because everyone wants to become rich. It's an idea that anyone, regardless of educational background, Race or financial status can perpetuate from the privacy of their home and win with it, if they so desire.
This kind of networking is growing astronomically and emerging as one of most successful marketing approaches in recent times. Recent statistic shows that in 1999 alone, the industry boasted over $81 billion dollars in global sales and over 21 million and growing new distributors in 45 countries.
It is the only industry in which ordinary people like you and I who understand the "stick to it approach" through a little effort and hard work can parlay just a few dollars into complete financial freedom, and become independently wealthy in about 2yrs to 4yrs and more importantly have the time to enjoy it.
The underlying opportunity in network marketing is awesome but before you reach this level of success, you have to understand what successful net workers do, practice them and eventually win like them.
So, how do I get started achieving this level of success, you may ask?
To succeed in any business, you've got to make some out of pocket investment.
So is marketing . But in this case, the out of pocket investment is minimal. I must be honest with you; it's going to cost you a few hundred dollars when getting started in MLM. Initial investment ranges from $50.00 to $150.00 monthly for program fees, then say about $50.00 monthly for leads generating programs.
On the contrary, it will cost you about $5,000.00 to start any small business and the bad news is that you may not be in profits in your first year. With a good company, most distributors start seeing profits after three months of working the program.
Successful network marketers understand that it takes money to make money and they treat the association like their own business.
They make the initial investment required to get them started. They join and become active members of their programs. They pay for leads generating programs.
They understand that, paying nothing means earning nothing.
They make their initial investments and continue to work the program until they are in profits. They may not make any profits their first month . Normally, it takes months to start making any money with the programs and these people don't quit. It may happen faster, however, if they work at their business a few hours daily.
Some few months ago, one of my downline partners emailed me and asked me. He would like to join this program but he has some financial problems so he wants to be sure that he can start making profits after 30 days.
I replied to him telling him, it's very unusual to start making any profits their first month. (I did this anyway, I have never paid twice for any program but my case is an unusual situation. I joined because I wanted to make money out of the programs, so I spend my time working the program the first month I joined and before the next re-billing session, I have made enough profit to cover my monthly subscription fees. I am aware that everyone can't be me).
In any case, I told them that, it's very possible but they have to follow my instructions and work crazily with the program or wait until they have enough money.
Whatever anyone makes from the association is equal to the effort they put in.
The more you work the program, the more the program will work for you. Successful net workers understand they have to invest money at the beginning and they don't just invest money but also work the program until they begin to cover their initial cost.
This is what you are required to do. Invest and work the program.
Now, this is NOT the case, sadly enough, with most MLM's out on the internet today. You must really check them out, talk to other members and determine if it is for you to put you time, money and effort into.
Many of us experienced internet business persons know that not only do you have to have a good association, but also good products at an affordable price in order to generate income.
The trend is now towards 'direct sales'.
How this works is that you only have ONE downline (or one level) in the program and each of them is you prospect.
You get a direct commission from all sales to them and it is paid in a timely fashion.
Whoever joins under them is theirs, and you don't have to worry about them what so ever!! What is even better is that the number in you line is not limited by the numeric amount of those in it!!
