Successful Network Marketing–Knowing How To Analyze An Opportunity BEFORE Spending a Dime

To be successful network marketing – knowing how to analyze an opportunity BEFORE spending a dime will save you years of struggle, frustration and starting from scratch over and over again.  On the other hand, if you have already signed on the dotted line with a company and are struggling to create that income from home as an online network marketer, I strongly suggest and recommend that you find a mentor with a servant’s heart to help you look at the opportunity you are currently in to see where there can be some improvements made. Usually it is just a matter of learning some skills, a network marketing education if you will.

How many times have you started a network marketing company, only to find frustration with the duplicable system, the upline support is next to zero or non existent and the compensation plan just does not add up as you were shown in the presentation? 

How many times have you been burned? That’s right. You thought you saw the light at the end of the tunnel; had an organization of twenty, thirty or even hundreds in your downline when…BAM! Something turned it off. You found yourself holding the bag. Sound familiar? Perhaps you were terminated without cause, the company went out of business or changed it’s business model from MLM to direct sales.  Heaven forbid the company may  decided that it does not need  sales reps at all of any kind, direct or MLM distributors.  What happens then? 

My hope would be that you would determine just how much of a risk the company you are thinking of joining will be before you join.  But if you find that you skipped that step and are in a company now,  there is still a way to determine how much you are risking by  using the 5 Pillars technology. Once you read the book Success in10 Steps written by Michael Dlouhy you will, when finished the free training course,  have an equivalent of a University degree in Network Marketing. 

You will learn:

  • How to avoid scams that are masked as legitimate MLM Companies and turn out to be pyramid schemes
  • What is the best compensation plan? 
  • What is the best system for duplication? 
  • What is the best MLM company for YOU?
  • What to say and when to say it.

Just imagine how you would feel if you were NEVER scammed again, could finally create a residual walk away  income of 10K a month or even more and could finally say I have found a company that I can call HOME.

Just what is your desired income, perhaps an extra $500 a month is good enough for you?  Will your Policies and Procedures as well as your compensation plan allow you to retire and/or will your business to your heirs. 

The Policies and Procedures will in most cases indicate that you can retire or leave your residual income to your heirs; succession. But, have you read them close enough to know that there may be qualifications that MUST be met by your heirs, or even qualifications that may prevent you from ever retiring.  Oh you can retire whenever you wish, but in most contracts in MLM if you decide to retire and do not caring on with your training responsibilities and your team building responsibilities; you will no longer be eligible to receive YOUR residual income that YOU created.  Making it impossible for you to retire and take a vacation when you want if you still want to receive that residual income that you worked so hard for.  This income, if you choose to walk away from a contract written like this will now roll right back to the company. OUCH!!

Read your PnPs for your self.  Look for words such as “ongoing” training, responsibilities, succession. What do your heirs have to do to qualify to receive what you have willed to them in your last will and testament?  How will your heirs feel when they realize that in order for them to receive what you have willed to them, they MUST sign up as a distributor and perform all the same duties that you do now?… Recruiting, selling, pitching your deal, training your downline.

You can  put any company to the 5 Pillars test.  Using the 5 qualifications listed in the 5 Pillars qualifying technology that will allow you to determine what your chances of success and or failure will be with any company.  You can find out what the 5 Pillars technology is by contacting us and we would be honoured to explain this important tool for evaluating a business opportunity.

What would have happened if you had the ability to properly analyze an opportunity before you decide to spend a dime? If that sounds like what you want, then give us a call and we would be honoured to share with you what we have learned over the past few years.

Frustrated Network Marketer – You are Invisible

You need a product people will buy from you because it can stand on its own merit, not because you can entice someone to become involved with the product based on the compensation they could receive for selling.   Otherwise, it will take way too much work for anyone to build a business. If your #1 network marketing product is not remarkable, you are invisible and you are still a frustrated network marketer.

I get calls from people who tell me they are searching for a product that truly inspires them. And that is exactly the wrong way to set yourself up for a long-term successful network marketing business.

Instead, search to find a mob of people raving about a product ‚ THEN Fall in Love With THAT Product! Be a passionate advocate for it. Find a product with a HUGE market and fall in love with it.

Some people love to work for companies with a product that fits their self-image‚ but they can’t make a dime on it.

Do yourself a favour. Focus on the people. Focus on the market. Use Google. Search & compare products. Find something that a ton of people are excited about. Choose a product that everyone else wants…not what YOU want and like.

And then, as you build your people, let them know the wisdom of doing the same thing.

Let me give you an example.

When People Are Excited About a Product, They Run To The Marketplace!

I ask this question of people all the time:

"Do you know anybody who is a diabetic, or who has a blood-sugar disorder?" Never once has anyone told me, "No."

So my next question to them is, "Do you think that person would like to know about a product that’s all natural, that costs less than $20, that has been proven to help rebuild the pancreas, and can possibly reduce or eliminate their need for insulin?"

The answer is always "Yes," and they are very excited about that.

And that person YOU know who has a blood-sugar disorder – do you think they may know 10 people who’d like the same information? THAT is the kind of excitement you can create with a hot, sizzle product that has people feeling the difference in days, not weeks or months.

Another example – back in the heyday of Excel long distance service, non-network marketers took the product to the market. We were all paying 40 cents a minute for long distance back then. When Excel started reselling long distance, you paid 30 cents a minute. And if you had your friends & family on it, you got it for 15 cents a minute.

So non-network marketers took that product to the marketplace. They didn’t care whether there was a compensation plan. It was obviously a huge improvement over the 40 cents a minute that everybody was paying.

So do yourself a favour. Find yourself a product that already has a huge market, and then fall in love with THAT product. Your business will almost build itself.

Successful Network Marketers Have Learned Skills

IF YOUR GOALS ARE OF NO MAJOR PURPOSE, YOU ARE DRIFTING TOWARD CERTAIN FAILURE.

Not having a major purpose OR goal for your life is like trying to navigate through uncharted waters. You may eventually get somewhere you planned, or you may drift like a ship without a sail, always wishing-but never finding-the place where you would like to be. As you grow as an individual, so will your major purpose and goals for life. It is the natural order of things that, when you reach the top of one mountain, you will look around for higher peaks to climb-other opportunities. In life, either you are moving forward and failing forward  or you are going backward. As humans it does us no real good to live in the past.  Continuous movement forward even after failure is the positive direction to move in.  When you chart your course carefully and thoughtfully, you can dismiss all doubt that you are going in the right direction.

FAILURE IN NETWORK MARKETING IS A GIVEN!  Apparently we feel we have to beat ourselves up over and over again before we finally decide to pay attention.  Ask yourself, “Why have I failed?”  The answer we neglect to see is right before us.  We continuously and constantly make the same mistake over and over.  If what you are doing now is not working for you, why move on to another opportunity and make the same mistakes again.  BUT you do not have to relive your failures everyday.  The biggest mistake is that before we start an online business opportunity, we regrettably do not educate ourselves about this industry.

Successful network marketing organizations are not built by one person. It is through teamwork, people from every walk of life & experience level coming together and working together. It takes many hands working for one common goal.  You absolutely need a great product. You won’t sustain success without one. But the MOST critical is a LOT of people working together, educating others with the necessary skills to be a huge success.

 Failure in this industry DOES NOT HAVE TO HAPPEN.  

Your success is a wonderful thing to us.  So our first bit of coaching is, figure out your   "WHY" you are proud to be a network marketer. Write it down. Test it mentally. (Will it keep you going in VERY tough times?)

Motivational speakers and personal development will make you a better person but they WILL NOT HELP YOU BUILD YOUR NETWORKING BUSINESS! DOES PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT MAKE YOU A BETTER DRIVER? A BETTER DITCH DIGGER? A BETTER LAWYER? A BETTER DOCTOR? NO!   YOU NEED SKILLS!!!! I can give you the skills, no string attached!

Are You Walking Past a Fortune

 

Successful Network Marketing –True RESIDUAL Income

Would it be ok if you learned how the “Rich” get rich?  I have heard  a mentor with a servant’s heart explain it like this.  True Residual Income is Successful Network Marketing; riches are achieved like this…

Everybody knows that  when we stop working our income stops coming in.  How much do you get paid if you stop working?  Nothing!!!   If you want results then do as  the “rich” people did to create huge pay checks…get  educated  about making money and learn to create residual income while you sleep. 

Residual or Royalty income is money that keeps coming to you, over and over on a regular basis while you do nothing.  There is an investment  and hard work at first but once you start making a residual income it comes in month after month; even while you  sleep.

Unfortunately, because most  just seem to hope to be rich, the only residual income we will ever earn is the interest from a savings account. Now just  imagine what it would be like if your residual income actually could pay you and your children’s children for the rest of your lives. Imagine that you could even quit your job and fire your boss.

Everybody knows it takes skills to be successful in any profession.  Most people want to be successful in their network marketing business. Everybody says that Mentoring For Free is the best place to learn the necessary skills for success.

Would it be okay with you if we showed you the skills you need to be successful, for free?  Contact us and we would be honoured to pass the skills on to you, then you can begin to change your business and your life.

So what would be easier for you, to learn the skills you need for success or to keep struggling as you have been?

MLM LAWSUITS Max and Melaleuca – Part 1

Why is it that we are so naive to believe that a network marketing company would never take their own distributors to court? Every time I turn around I have an email from MLM Watchdog, Rod Cook of  mlmwatchdog  warning of another lawsuit that has been  filed, this time Max and Melaleuca.  Either a network marketing company is suing another network marketing company or a company is suing their own distributors.

How to Provide a Successful Network Marketing Atmosphere for Distributors?  Stop taking your distributors to court and …

But hey the distributors would know that this could happen at the company’s sole discretion if they had read their policies and procedures.  The distributor would have realized that the company can do anything they want; terminate you, file lawsuits against you for things like using the company name in promotions or telling the world on Facebook that you are an employee of [xyz] company when indeed you are not.  What you are is an independent distributor or contractor in violation of your contract.

Just last week, February 21/ 2011 I received email notification from Rod Cook that Max International had to pay out to Melaleuca $1.2 Million. Read here  http://www.mlmwatchdog.com/mlm_melaleuca_non_compete_lawsuits.html

Max International is a Utah based MLM company which has now agreed to pay $1.2 million to  Melaleuca, of Idaho which was to settle a lawsuit filed in 2009.  What was the lawsuit all about or the allegations?  Max International distributors recruited Melaleuca reps and compelled them to breach their contracts.

This is one thing that most would know…lawsuits are very ugly and unwelcomed. However there are some very valuable lessons that can be learned from them. 

Lesson 1:

Why on earth would anyone want to be associated with a company that is so focused on  “irritating, crushing” and “stomping out”  the competition,  than being in a company that is intent on “standing up” and “championing” their own distributors. 

It is never in anyone’s best interest to  join a company that delights in legal bickering and back biting. 

Investigate  the company’s track record to see for YOURSELF how often they have been involved in lawsuits, especially those involving their own  distributors. 

It’s one thing to engage other companies looking to protect the establishment of the company and reps – a whole different ballgame to be at odds and constantly in litigation with  the most important people of the organization and the survival of the company, YOU the distributors. 

Just think if there were less legal battles there would be more in the compensation plan for you.  Yup every legal battle takes away from money the company could be sharing with you.  Someone has to pay the $1.2 million that Max International owes Melaleuca.

Lesson 2: to follow in Part 2

Go ahead read the  laundry list of lawsuits here: who knows you may  just turn up something you didn’t know. http://www.mlmwatchdog.com/home_index_mlm_lawsuits_court_cases.html
