You may or may not know that one of my businesses is a network marketing business. This article, “Secrets of Multilevel Marketing’s Top Sellers” is just a quick look into some of the people who have succeeded in this type of business. I joined my current company back in August of 2016 and continue working on this today.
I love the company and the people I get to mingle with in this company and in this business. If you ever find yourself depressed and hopeless, find a MLM event to go to. You will be in a huge room full of happy, excited, and cheerful people. You simply cannot stay depressed or down in such company.
My products include weight loss capsules that are all natural–no harsh chemicals. There is an anti-aging face cream made from natural products that leaves your skin supple and youthful; a wrinkle removing face cream that gets rid of those small wrinkles in a matter of minutes. There is a liquid sleep aid that not only helps you get to sleep and stay asleep, but also contains fat-burning herbs to help you lose weight while you sleep. There is an energy drink that is full of electrolytes, natural sources of energy and no harsh chemicals. The newest product just unveiled is a protein drink and I can’t wait to get my hands on it to try.
If you read this article, you will meet several people who are making MLM work for them. The complaint from people who have tried MLM and failed in the past is that no one really makes money and it doesn’t work. When I talk to people who tell me this, I always ask them what they did to try to make their business a success and usually they tell me they talked to a few people and made a couple of calls and it didn’t work.
While it is true that many people fail at MLM, the problem does not lie with the program or company. The true problem lies with the person who thought MLM was a get rich quick scheme and they didn’t have to do anything to make money. The truth of the matter is that MLM is a business–you own your own business–and it requires lots of hard work and dedication to become successful. The upside is that you can start your own business for a very small amount of money and a lot of elbow grease effort.
This article outlines a few successes that figured out how to make the program work for them. When you read it, you will see that they worked very hard to get their success. MLM is not for everyone, but if you are interested in learning more about my business, please let me know or go to my website: http://artisticdiva.SBCPowerline.com and watch a five minute video about this company.
It’s a tough business and a crowded market, but these women are succeeding. How?
We’ve all known at least one. That friend who wants to tell you about the new company that changed her life or the one new product you just have to try.
Multilevel marketing companies know them, too, and they count on their army of sellers to turn their friends, family, and social networks into buyers. And it’s worked — MLMs like Avon and Amway have been around for decades.
In general, this is how multilevel marketing (sometimes called direct marketing) companies are structured: Aspiring sellers (often referred to as consultants or stylists) buy into a company either through purchasing inventory they then have to sell or through an educational program after which they are required to meet monthly, yearly, or quarterly sales goals. Most also have “team leader,” “coach,” or “mentor” aspects to the business, whereby consultants build teams of sellers and a percentage of their team’s profits trickle up.
It’s a highly competitive business model, especially in areas like fashion and beauty, which are already saturated markets. Many who sign up with MLMs — often with the hope of owning their own business and having control over their schedule — don’t find the level of success they hoped for. (It’s one reason why some direct-marketing companies, especially those dependent on massive buy-ins from hopeful sellers who ultimately end up holding the bag, have been accused of running pyramid schemes.)
But with for some multilevel marketing companies — those with relatively low buy-ins, reasonable sales requirements, and financial motivation to help sellers succeed — there’s a real chance for participants to see that promise of more money, more freedom, and more fulfilling work come true.
We spoke with a handful of women (and one man!) who are killing it at some of the more popular and rapidly growing direct-marketing companies to get a sense of who they are and how they became top earners at their companies.
