How to Choose a Winning MLM Program
The idea of using a MLM program (multi-level marketing program) to produce extra income - to attain financial freedom - has captured the imagination of thousands of people. In the current economic climate more and more people are looking around,
and attempting to find a real winner.
The problem is, multi-level marketing companies are sprouting up
all over the place, and there's just too many of them to keep up
with, for the average extra-income opportunity seeker. This
makes the choice of the best one or ones to "hook up with" a
frustrating and time-consuming process.
Before you "hook up with" any multi-level company, we advise you
to run through this check list about an MLM program.
THINK ABOUT THE PRODUCT. Is it a product that you would use
regularly, and freely recommend to your friends? Is it lower
priced, more convenient to use than similar products available
elsewhere, particularly at the stores in your area? And finally,
what about delivery--how much of a time interval is involved
from when your customer orders until he receives the product?
FIND OUT AS MUCH ABOUT THE OPERATION AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN. Beware
of chain letters, pyramid scams, and exorbitant claims relative
to distributor profits. Be sure to find out exactly what you'll
be getting in return for your initial sign up fee. Make sure the
company provides you with professional sales aid materials, and
that they're reasonably priced.
Many MLM companies rake in tremendous profits just selling
brochures and/or other sales literature. Check with your local
printing outlets and determine your actual cost.
Find out about the company's financial backing and corporate
officers. Are they "pushing" this program as an extra-income
project of their own, or are they in it as full time
professional sales people? Be sure to understand/know how the
company keeps track of all incoming orders and when, as well as how you'll be paid.
In essence, before deciding to become involved with a
multi-level marketing company and expect to make a profit, it is
essential that you understand:
IT IS A SELLING PROPOSITION. YOU MAY BE REQUIRED TO DO AT LEAST
SOME FACE-TO-FACE SELLING - AND IT WILL REQUIRE A LOT OF YOUR
You must have a product line that appeals to most people. In
other words, information or program/help that will enable people
to fulfill their basic wants such as becoming rich!
Selling vitamins, wrinkle creams, even food, will NOT fulfill
those needs because of the intense competition. But, appealing
to those people who are already selling a product with a sales
improvement or training program can make you rich.
In addition to understanding what's involved, and a product line
that most people want, and will buy from you, you need
assistance - instructions and help in not only selling the
product or products, but in how to find new customers on an
Once you've decided to try your hand at multi-level marketing,
and you've become affiliated with a company that has a product
line you feel will appeal to most people, and you have your
advertising/sales materials, the next thing is to determine how
YOU want to sell it. Will you be selling door-to-door, via home
parties, public seminars, by mail, or a combination of all these
Remember, the amount of time you spend in actually trying to
sell the product will determine the amount of money you make.
The more presentations or sales calls you make, the more money
you're going to make.
But unless you make those sales calls, you won't be making any
It's up to you to decide just how much time you'll spend with
your extra-income producing project.
Picking a winning multi-level company can be exasperating
because there are so many to choose from, but the ordeal can be
a lot more profitable if you'll just ask yourself the question
we've outlined for you in this MLM program article.
