Getting Started in Network Marketing and MLM
In today's fast-paced, digitally enhanced society, a home-based business is more possible now than ever before. With the internet as your right hand man, it's possible to create the most productive business you've ever been a part of. And the best part is, you can own it yourself!
I'm talking about network marketing.
"In the last 20 years, more people have become millionaires in network marketing than ANY other industry." – USA Today
What are some of the reasons people get into network marketing?
-It enables the ability to work from home, opening up your schedule for more leisure.
-For supplementary income, perhaps for a vacation fund or college fund.
-To pay off debt like: credit cards, school loans, auto loans, mortgages.
-To create enough passive income to quit their job altogether and retire wealthy as young as possible.
So can you do this? Can you become a successful network marketer? YES, of course you can!
You may be thinking to yourself,
"I already have a job, I do not have time for another one."
Great, neither did I! I was working 10 hour days, 6 days a week, pouring concrete 11,000 ft. up in the Colorado Rockies when I got started. If difficulty of work = income level, the world would be full of rich construction workers – but it is not. That's because people who work the hardest do not make the most. It's the people who work the smartest that actually make the most. I picked this concept up from Mike Dillard. The point is, you can work for someone else all your life and never get ahead. When you finally embrace network marketing and do it correctly, it does not even feel like work. And when work does not feel like work, you know you're working smart!
"Well, I'm not a good salesperson."
Neither am I! I can not stand when a salesperson comes up to me on a car lot. In fact, 95% of people feel the same way. I can teach you how to attract people to your opportunity without cold calling random people or annoying your friends and family for business. Although it is important to never rule out the people close to you. If you can offer a service of high value to them, then by all means introduce them to it. You just do not want to rely on the people close to you for the bulk of your business. You must market your business towards your target market, and adjust your marketing plan and ads as such. Then, it's smooth sailing while leads pour in automatically through the system you set up.
"Sounds too good to be true. Is network marketing one of those pyramid deals?"
Absolutely NOT! As a matter of fact, network marketing is one of the only business models in the world that does not look like a pyramid! Think of any traditional business, your boss makes more than you right? And their superior makes more than them? And so on and so forth; that sounds an awful lot like a pyramid to me. In network marketing it's not uncommon for someone to earn more than the person that recruited them. As long as your service is better, faster, and / or cheaper (in other words OF HIGH VALUE to your customers), all you have to do is market the opportunity correctly to profit.
If you're ready to work smart, offer a service or product of high value to others, and finally find a vehicle for financial freedom, then network marketing is something you need to be a part of.
