Why Would Anyone Consider Network Marketing

Aug 14th 2010 at 11:52 AM

Extra income, extra time, extra financial security!
Residual income, Enjoying family life, Freedom, Happiness!
That's it, plain and simple.

This is a question I'm sure most people have asked. With the proliferation of products being thrust upon us from what seems to be a never-ending stream of marketing empires, what would motivate an individual to even consider network marketing? Certainly it's not the perceived rejection one feels when a potential customer says no. Nor is it the skepticism about reported incomes. Just what could possibly draw someone to pursue the field of network marketing?

 

The first and most obvious answer is that there are people who are in sales as a career. Those are the ones who enjoy it and are good at the art of selling anything. They will be attracted to sales whenever they are looking for a new position. Most of us are not comfortable trying to sell to others.

 

The second type is those who have not chosen sales as an ongoing career but are involved in it on a temporary basis while looking for a position in the field of their choice. The fact is, there are numerous sales positions available at all times and when someone needs work, it is the easiest type to find in a reasonably short time.

 

Then there is a third category. Here you will find those who probably had no intention or interest in selling. These are the individuals who have chosen to become independent distributors. They become affiliated with a large company that provides them with not only product, but also a myriad of support and assistance. The better the parent company the better the support. In spite of some popular belief, these can often be quite lucrative and beneficial for those individuals who decide to pursue such a path. In order to really be successful in this type of system it is necessary to grasp the concept of marketing an idea and system of ongoing income possibilities tied in with a particular product line as opposed to simply selling a product to someone.

 

This system has become the chosen format for a great many highly successful companies and has actually helped create numerous millionaires over the years. Today all indications are that it is here to stay and will actually continue to grow even larger. Many people still remain skeptical of it and the claims of high incomes, but the fact is that it really does work. These systems are usually quite simple to implement and anyone could do it. However, in order to succeed one needs to be willing to learn, either have or develop a positive attitude, be serious about it as a business, and probably most of all, be willing to teach and help others succeed. It is a learning and growing process.

 

The challenge for most individuals is getting past the idea of focusing on product sales and realizing that the real profits are centered around teaching. Yes that's right, teaching. You see, that is the true basis of network marketing, people helping and teaching other people. Once we are able to grasp that concept everything changes. From this point on it becomes possible to actually build a network of ongoing distribution as well as that illusive residual income. That is the real prize!

 

In today's world we have all become well aware of the fact that there is no such thing as a good reliable job, and forget about any benefits. We are all familiar with lay offs, downsizing and corporate failures. If we have not ourselves experienced one of these, we certainly know someone who has. That's what makes the residual income so vital, because it's not offered anywhere else, unless you are a recording artist, actor, author, etc. Where else can the average person work on something once and continue to be paid for that effort on and on into the future. This is the crown jewel of the income scale, especially in a time when all of the traditional businesses are cutting back on everyone's benefits. In fact in many cases, just when you reach the point at which your seniority with a firm entitles you to a few extras, that same firm is looking for any excuse to get rid of you; so much for thanks and loyalty for your years of dedicated service.

 

Many of the companies utilizing this form of distribution, usually known as network marketing or multi level marketing, have selected this format because it is one of the easiest, most economic, and user friendly systems for introducing a product line to the marketplace. In addition it is a way of developing a solid, consistent, and faithful customer base for life. The distributors marketing their products are operating their own businesses and buying for themselves from themselves and at a discount. This is hard for a competitor to penetrate.

 

Now that these types of marketing operations have been around for a while, we have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. Fortunately there have been enough of the good ones to prove the validity of such a system. They have actually produced enough successful results that we can no longer say they are all a scam. Yes, there have been those who were not completely honest and aboveboard. However, they have not stood the test of time or the courts and are no longer around. There have been enough investigations and legal actions taken over the years so that now the cream has risen to the top. People are more sophisticated and savvy now and look a little deeper before jumping into things.

 

In today's world where everything has become so much more expensive and everyone is looking for a better way and more income, this form of business venture is quite appealing. Where else can the average person develop a legal business of their own, work from home, with quality products, and step by step guidelines and support for a surprisingly nominal start up fee. Along with this come the normal tax benefits of owning your own business. In addition, you are your own boss, build up you business at your own speed, and decide when to give yourself a raise or time off.

 

Don't misunderstand, these are real businesses and must operate as such, but the relaxed atmosphere and the ability to control things has unparalled appeal. If one is willing to work hard and adhere to the normal rules and protocol for operating a legitimate business, there is no reason why one of the many opportunities offered by these systems should not be seriously considered. If on the other hand you are looking for a get rich quick or no work success story than this is not for you. It will only work if you work it. There are no short cuts.

 

Many distributors today are pre-qualifying potential or prospective new distributors for their organizations. No longer are they willing to work with just anyone. Today they fully realize just what they have their hands on and they know from experience what it will require on their part to train and bring along that newbie. With the amount of money to be generated and made, they are not willing to bring in dead wood. Their time is much too valuable to waste on someone who is not serious and willing to learn. Don't make the mistake of thinking this is small time stuff; far from it. There is way too much money to be made for them to waste their time with someone who doesn't really want it or isn't willing to put forth the effort. If an individual simply wants to have the retail profit or develop a few hundred extra dollars each month that's fine. However, it's the ones looking for larger incomes and asking for help both verbally and by their actions that will get the real attention and time from those who are already successful.

 

What it boils down to is that they have already secured their own incomes and many times don't need to do much else. Most of them by this time, however, have become excited about seeing others achieve their goals and dreams and have discovered that when they stay away from it they actually become bored and miss it. That's where the new people really benefit. These successful individuals have paved the way and know the ropes inside out. They know what works and what doesn't. Where else can you get that kind of counseling and guidance free of charge?

 

This type of business will be a learning experience and can be an enjoyable journey if you accept the idea that there are others doing this who know more than you, and they are willing to teach you and help you succeed. Remember, with most of these systems their continued success depends on them helping you to succeed. That is a difficult concept for most of us to accept. It is not what we are accustomed to. We have become skeptical and suspicious out of the need for self-preservation. What we are more used to experiencing is others not helping us for fear we might replace them or surpass them at the workplace. This type of thinking does not breed good will, honesty, support, relaxation, trust or happiness in the workplace. Is it any wonder that so many people are unhappy in their jobs and wish they didn't have to go there every day? How many times have you heard someone say, "If only I could start my own business"? How many times have you uttered it to yourself?

 

If you are one of those who are truly willing to put forth the effort to learn and then develop a solid lasting business operation of your own with residual income, then you should give one of these types of business strategies a serious look. Try the products first and if you like them and the people you will be dealing with, than go for it. In most cases the start up fees are reasonable and you have nothing to loose.

 

Think of it as a training ground in the beginning and learn everything you can. If the one you first choose turns out not to be for you, don't think of it as a big mistake. Instead, understand that what you have learned belongs to you. Take that knowledge with you and move on. Remember, I said it would be a learning experience. Most successful business people have tried several different times before finding the right place. You are customizing your future, and there may be several design changes along the way. Welcome these changes and realize each one takes you one step closer to your goal of independence.

 

If you have taken the time to read all of this than you are probably looking for something yourself. Why wait any longer? Go ahead, do it. All you will be doing is kick starting the rest of your life the way you want it to be. Good luck, and don't wait any longer.

 

If you would like to know what my personal choice in this matter has been, please feel free to contact me and I would be more than happy to discuss it with you. Remember I said it's about people helping people. I, like you, have looked for some time and had all the same questions and doubts. You can contact me from the safety of your own home where you are not cornered or trapped in a conversation. I have no intention of trying to convince anyone of anything. You are either seriously looking or your not. I don't want to waste my time any more than you do yours. It's just that simple. I have chosen to kick start the rest of my life, what about you?

I am quite serious about this and there is far too much money generating potential to waste either your time or mine. So, as I said, if you are seriously looking, honest, and reliable, you may call me, and yes you will actually get me.

 

Most of my adult life I have been self-employed. Like many others I have looked around longer than I care to admit, for something to give me an ongoing income, regardless of my ability to work. Having seen friends with ill health, downsizing, and depression, it was time to take some proactive steps myself in order to avoid having the same negative things in my future. Without needing to give up anything, I have kick started the rest of my life.
