Why Most Network Marketers Fail

There is a very high failure rate among those in network marketing/MLM.

One of the biggest reasons I see for failure is the “I can’t afford it” syndrome.

The average cost to join an MLM company is $500.  The average monthly product requirement is $100.  So, by month three, the average network marketer has invested $700 into his/her business.  At that point, they have exhausted their warm market.  This is the point where most people give up and quit. 

They claim they have invested too much money so far and “can’t afford” to invest any more into learning how to properly market their business beyond their warm market.

HELLO??

If anyone seriously thinks they can start a business for $700, not market it properly, and make it a success, they are nuts.

We need to stop marketing MLMs to people who do not have the resources to make it into a successful business.  This is why network marketers get such a bad name.  People who are building a business lie to their prospects and tell them it’s easy.  They tell them that they can “fire your boss tomorrow” among other things.

Are you ready to stop lying and learn how to attract those who can afford to build a business?  If you won’t put money out to make your business successful, don’t expect those you bring in to do it either.  You really can’t afford to NOT spend money on your business.  Your return on investment – IF YOU IMPLEMENT WHAT YOU LEARN – will be huge if you go to the right person to learn.

 

Why Not Join Me and Start Your Home Business Today?

I am so excited!! I loved my home based business! It’s so easy.

All I have to do is show people how to turn an everyday household expense into an income. It’s unlike any other business I’ve done. I don’t have to ask people to spend ANY new money out of their budget. I simply show them how to shop at a different store for the same products they are buying now and my company pays me for showing them the new store. That’s it. It’s so simple.

In the past I’ve built businesses talking people into buying overpriced miracle juice and magic supplements. No more. The products at the new store I help people shop at are competitively priced.

How can we do that? How can we sell competitively priced products that people are already using on a daily basis? My business partner is the manufacturer of the products.

In a traditional MLM type structure, the products are manufactured by a manufacturer. They are then sold to the company. The company pays reps to sell them to the end consumer. This one extra step adds to the cost of the product to the end consumer.

In a traditional business, the products are manufactured by a manufacturer, then sold through reps to a store, then the store advertises to get the word out and then the products are sold to the end consumer.

Let’s take a look:

Traditional Business = Manufacturer => Wholesaler => Store => Advertising => End Consumer

Traditional MLM = Manufacturer => Company => End Consumer (Commission goes to MLM Rep)

My business = Manufacturer => End Consumer (Commission goes to Direct Marketing Rep)

So…the cost of products in my company can be competitive with major brands. This is very important. One of the major tests that is looked at when determining if a business is reputable is to ask this question:

Would you buy your products for the price you pay for them even if there were no business opportunity attached?

If the answer is no, then you are not in a good business model. Many people in traditional MLMs are forced to buy a lot of products to qualify to earn commission. Many people in traditional MLMs are forced to buy a bunch of product up front and then hope and pray they can sell it to someone and make money. That’s so sad. No matter what, don’t get roped into one of these types of businesses. You will be struggling forever and gaining very little ground.

Look for a business with a low cost to enter. Many charge hundreds or even thousands to join. Look for a business where you are not forced to load your garage with product just to qualify for bonuses. Many of them make you buy hundreds of dollars of stuff you would never buy otherwise EVERY month.

I love that I simply purchase better quality products that I would have bought elsewhere anyway AND I save money doing it. Then I make money showing others how to do the same thing. That is (for me) the PERFECT business. No spending money on stuff I don’t really need or want. No buying tons of stuff only to hope that I can sell it.
