Network Marketing – What You Are Selling?

Network Marketing – What Role Does It Play In Your Life?

While I have spoken with plenty of people who have real passion for their network marketing products. I have spoken to even more people who care less about the actual network marketing product they represent.  At first I thought this was rather alarming, after all isn’t the idea to love what it is you are selling?

This led me on a journey to really dig deep within the industry and find out what people are doing and why they are doing it.  What I started learning was that people weren’t really into the products , its just that many of the products have crazy compensation plans so many of the peeps end up marketing the product or service because the comp plan really is lucrative.

What is crazier is the fact that many of the products and services aren’t even really needed other than the fact that they have good comp plans attached. Out of curiosity why are you marketing the network marketing product or service you are marketing?

Network Marketing -  Live The Dream Baby!

I believe many folks in mlm believe that one day all their money troubles will be over.  It is the dream of financial freedom that keeps people up at night and keeps their engines running even if they are on empty.  What I find so fantastic about network marketing is the fact that, it does give the ordinary person a chance to live a life that is imagined by many but only released by a few.

Network Marketing – The Real Skills You Need To Find Freedom!!

The failure rate online is alarming.  I found success not because of the companies I represented, rather I found success because I learned the principles of online marketing combined with network marketing.  Once you know what you are doing online, it really isn’t that hard to start generating traffic that will convert for you. The thing is that people need to see you as a person they can trust.

Most people will not openly admit this, but it really is about the money. Network marketing is so stinking easy online.   The secret to success in this industry is not in the product or service, it is in the mentorship. Find a good teacher who can guide you in your journey and you will ultimately find success, anyone can it is just a matter of putting in the effort and finding the right people to work with.

Network Marketing – Screw Get Rich Fast

Don’t ever buy into the hype all businesses online or offline requires work. Often it requires hard work and a ton of hours. Not to mention it cost money to make money.  These facts are often overlooked in favor of selling the hype.  I am dead serious when I say , “You Really Need To Find Someone Who Can Mentor You.”

I didn’t have a mentor, the result is in the course of 10 years I spent over $100,000 doing the wrong crap!  By the time I found good mentors it was too late, the damage was done. Don’t let that happen to you.

Success doesn’t happen because of the programs you are involved in. Success happens because of the person that you are. The best teacher can’t help you if you are not ready to be helped.  Are you ready for change in your life? Are you prepared to do what it takes? If you are its simply a matter of finding the right people to work with and surround yourself with. Network marketing can work for you, but be ready to work for it!

    It is funny in MLM how different the mindsets of the people joining are. The recruiters who don’t care about the product. The direct sellers who the product is critical.
    A company really needs both people to survive. Companies with lousy products do not survive more than a year or two because they are only selling to the people in the company.

      Hi Bob thanks for stopping by and commenting. You have a very valid point that is why I don’t like promoting products or services that aren’t at least 5 years old. Thanks for sharing

    Hi Larry,

    I agree with you. There is no such thing as a “get rich quick.” There is a massive hard work behind the every success story. I met great mentors and friends who are helping, guiding, and sharing the knowledge with me. If they already know what’s working, why not learn from them right? :)

    Thank you for sharing.

    I love this article because it is so true. I have spent so much money of the course of the past couple of months learning the correct way to run a mlm. I thought I had a great mentor but there was a lack of training that came with the mentor-ship in the beginning but now I have found my correct direction. Thanks for the great article. Really you have to find the correct person to guide you and then take some action.

    Hey Larry,

    You hit it right on the nail. The secret to success in network marketing is in the MENTORSHIP. So many people are pitching and not enough of them are mentoring. This is why so many people are failing in this great industry. Great post Larry!

    Wow! I admire your boldness on this topic. Many people try to find “easy ways” to get rich online and there’s just no such thing. Unless of course you’re a heir or heiress! But it takes a lot of planning,motivation,determination and long hours of work before you make it big!
