How To Make Money In Network Marketing The Truth

How To Make Money In Network Marketing The Truth
I was first introduced MLM also know as Multi Level Marketing and or Network Marketing back in the nineties. It was an online company offering lower cost long distance and international telephone services that I thought was going to be a winner.

I was flat broke at that time but put together some flyers to advertise the service and also tried to promote the service through mail order emailshots and ads. I failed for 3 reasons.

1. Even though I promoted the product, almost all of the people I was in contact with werent interested in saving money off their phone calls or changing their service. They didnt want 2 bills was what I heard most. This was a new idea at that time, it was just a 2 or 3 months after the phone company lost their monopoly and people werent very progressive then.

2. I didnt have enough start up capital to do promotions the justice they deserved and even though I had introduced users and promoters I always fell short of the monthly enrollment requirements to be remunerated. Being remunerated. for my efforts might just have made the difference. I could have utilized those monies to strengthen my promotions.

3. I joined up under with a very nice person but she was was as green as I was to MLM and network marketing. Her upline didnt offer any help what so ever to her, we leaned on each other. It was fun but like the blind leading the blind and got very frustrating after a while.

I stumbled along with that company for several months and never got paid. while I was doing that I had foundv that information publishing was where I was making money. I did not want to use that money to promote the company I had become disappointed with so I reinvested my earnings back into what was working the best for me.

After couple of years I published my own informational e-zine and much of what I saw involving multi level marketing disappointed me further.

I saw network marketing companies launching in other countries without the correct legal work being done. Many of people would join and in their innocence expend money promoting some product that was in fact illegal and likely to be shut down.

I heard of people who had piles of the products stashed away and would probably never use it. Whay is that?Why? Because some of those companies required you to buy an amount of product monthly before you would be rewarded for your efforts and your down-lines efforts.

Someone I know earned thousands of pounds every month with his company. One month he spent 2 weeks on holiday and came back down with food poisoning. He fell 1 short of the required monthly recruiting figures and his earnings went to his upline. Can you imagine that happening?

Companies move the goal posts just when promoters start to do well.

I would get telephone calls inviting me to join a great opportunity. Because I am a nice person I didnt tell them to beat it when they were extolling the virtues of companies that I probably knew more than them about. I would tell them why I objected and get really answers that were particularly annoying:

I dont want the product
The product doesnt matter as you will soon get a great income.

I havent got the time
You only need to spend one hour a week promoting

I already have multiple projects in place and wouldnt be able to do this business justice and to spend time helping those who joined with me as well.
They wont require any help this business is very easy to run

I could tell you more but Im sure you get the picture. I really grew to hate network marketing and some of those that it drew in, but being in constant contact with them was one part of the business so tolerating it was a daily chore.

One day I had a call from a new subscriber. He was a network marketer yawn and he tried to get me to join. What he said to me during that call made me rethink my bad opinion of network marketers, but he was one among many.

He related to me that I should be interested in using the product regularly so I would be able to honestly recommend it. He told me that I would need to make a sizable initial investment to enable proper promotion of the business. He also related that it would be some hard work and take at least 20 hours a week and that it would take a few months to start earning and that earnings would gradually build if I continued the hard work. In a nutshell he was honest about it!

I was astonished at his being so forthright and told him so and why. His replied that he was always honest about the business and that he would rather have one good enrollee who knew the score from the beginning than 20 who believed that they would earn a fortune with no money and little effort. That one good joiner would earn both of them far more profit than those who joined as dreamers.
