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.

 

I’ve Been Away for a While

On October 1, 2011, our family finally moved back to our hometown of Cato NY so we could be closer to friends and family. I am so happy that we aren’t stuck out at the end of the Earth in a tiny little house in Fair Haven anymore. Our new home is about twice the size of our old one. If I must be in NY (I would prefer to be in a warmer climate) I prefer to live in Cato. It’s a small town…one of the ones where you blink, you miss it…and I love living where I know almost everyone and almost everyone knows me. I go to the store and meet up with at least 5 or 6 people I haven’t seen in a while and am happy to catch up with.

Anyway…We are pretty much settled in and I’m back up and running as a full time work at home mom.

Many of you know that I am a business coach. I help technologically challenged entrepreneurs and small businesses market online using social spaces. I’ve been helping people create an income from home for around 12 years now.

Among others, I teach a course called “Cash in on Your Passion” where I help people figure out what their passion is and how to make money doing what they love. That course is one of my best sellers. Many people who go through the course decide that they either don’t want to build a business from scratch or they just want something where they can basically “paint by numbers” and build a business. For these people, I had nothing to offer them.

That has changed!! I am beginning a new business where I can help people have their own business and all they have to do is “paint by numbers”. Follow the steps, in sequence, and they will be successful. Now…don’t get me wrong…this is NOT something where you can sign up, do nothing and make money. Notice I said “follow the steps, in sequence”. This means there is going to be work that you have to do in order to find success. Honestly, anything that is worth investing time, effort and money into is going to take work. Not one person has ever had a successful business magically appear with their name on the checks. There are unscrupulous people out there that will try to convince you if you give them your hard earned money, you can sit back and do nothing and get paid. If you live in fantasy land, that may work. 😉

I will be updating my blog and letting you know when I am ready to begin accepting business partners to “paint by numbers” with me. In the meantime, if you just can’t wait for the announcement, fill out the form HERE to be put on the Priority Notification List and you will be in the first group to get information about this new business venture.

Stay tuned!! I will be posting updates on a regular basis now that I’m settled in and actually have an office to work in. 🙂
