Which Network Marketing Company Should YOU Choose?
If you are reading this blog you probably understand what network marketing is and how it is an opportunity for you to earn money running your own part- or full-time business.
So how can you find out which network marketing company is the best?
There is no ‘best’ company. It’s about finding what works for you. You need to consider the type of products that you will be marketing. Would you use them yourself? If the answer is no, then the likelihood is you are not going to be passionate enough about them to market them? Passion is key in this business.
Guidelines for Choosing a Business Opportunity
Before committing to a company, do some research.
- Learn as much as you can about the company as possible. Look at how long the company has been in business. Statistics show that over 90% of all new companies fail within their first five years. Investigate the experience of the CEO, their experience in the network marketing industry and their background. Have they been successful in other companies in the industry? Do they have a good reputation?
- Ask the person that is presenting the business opportunity to you if they can introduce you to other team members who are currently involved and ask them questions. Most companies have information presentation evenings where you can go along to find out more.
- Fully review the Compensation Plan. This can be complex in some cases, yet very simple in others. Part of the compensation plan to consider is the monthly purchase requirement. This is where the company place a stipulation on how much personal product you must purchase each month to receive commissions. Another consideration is what percentage of the product sales are paid back to the distributors each month. Attending a company presentation can be helpful to have the compensation plan fully explained.
- It is important that you believe in and have confidence in the product(s), therefore try them out personally.
- Consider what training and support you will receive and what business systems are in place to help you become successful. Look for a company that has a simple proven and duplicatable system. Training should be a combination of company training, training from your team coach, classroom and online etc
Do You Have What it Takes to Be in Network Marketing?
Understand that anything worth having takes effort, so it is worth considering the following:
- Make an honest evaluation of yourself and your abilities and attitude?
- Are you willing to work? This is no get rich scheme. Like a good investment or physical fitness, your success will take TIME and COMMITMENT. Are you prepared to embrace this for the longer term?
- Are you open minded, willing to develop yourself, learn new skills and take responsibility for your own actions and activity?
Review of some Networking Marketing Companies
Annual Revenue: $1,000,000,000+.
Company Website: http://www.juiceplus.com
Juice Plus+ developed the idea of putting fruits and vegetables that we all need in our diet into a capsule form. The idea took hold immediately especially with the backing and commercials from O.J. Simpson. People grabbed the product like crazy, but then we all know what happened with O.J. Simpson. This somewhat hurt the Juice Plus reputation, but they were able to distance themselves from Simpson and have continued to grow.
