My previous articles offered you 12 Questions to Ask When Evaluating a Network Marketing Business, and 8 Facts About How The Network Marketing Industry Began. This article will explain what the Network Marketing Business is all about.
How products are bought and sold has changed dramatically in the last 15 years: James W. Robinson writes in his book, Prescription for Success, that
?network marketing has attracted well over 36 million people worldwide and that companies who ignore this method of attracting loyal customers and sales agents do so at great risk to their long-term profitability and international expansion.
Network Marketing and MLM are often used interchangeably.
Network Marketing is the preferred term today because it more accurately describes the nature of this profession in this age of information and in the world economy.?
It is a proven business approach that uses independent business owners to promote a company?s products and services directly to consumers, and to build teams (sponsor) and help others do the same.?
Unlike corporate America, network marketing awards leaders for helping their partners to succeed. Those partners have the opportunity of excelling and even ranking higher than their sponsor.
The Network Marketing compensation model, widely known as multi-level, has actually been around for some time and used by many other industries.?
A classic example is the insurance industry.?An insurance company markets its ideas to master agents who then train and support many sales agents who then sell insurance policies to consumers like you and I.?
This results in a multi-level payout on the proceeds from policy sales where each level of participants in the sale (the agent, the master agent, and the company) all receives financial compensation.?
The same is true for consumer products companies, beverage distributors, and several other highly respected industries.
Network Marketing as practiced today is attracting more highly-educated, upscale professionals than ever before. ?
Doctors, Lawyers, Authors, Sports Personalities and even regular people from all walks of life are joining the movement to be affiliated with winning teams of independent business owners.?
?And why not!
Most of us are social human beings that like to tell others what works for us.?
We are given to recommending good products, services, restaurants and movies to our friends and family members.?
Now many of those companies that benefit from our recommendations pay us for our product loyalties.?
Is it legal?
Not only is our industry legal and ethical, it is self regulated.
Today, more than 200 of the very best companies in our industry have qualified for membership in the Direct Selling Association (DSA).?
This prestigious group sets the standards for our industry.?
