Network Marketing Opportunities – How to Choose the Best One For You

Network marketing opportunities abound these days, how do you choose from them all? The way to win in this industry is to understand it and the corporations involved in it. As a mentor in the industry I am asked all the time if MLM is the right thing to be in and which network marketing opportunity is the best fit. The first you need to consider when looking at network marketing opportunities is which company. The best way to evaluate the company of course is to check it out on the internet. Does it have a good presence? What is being sold?

Be wary of network marketing opportunities whose only product is the business itself. Many of those types of sites never last, border on being scams and suddenly close up shop and leave with the cash. There are many very reputable companies out there with real products. Health products are the goods of choice by 80-90% of network marketing opportunities. Explore the quality and cost of any products associated with any health product network marketing opportunities which may interest you. Do some comparison shopping between them and other vitamin retailers. What are the outstanding features which their vitamins offer that no one else has?

Don’t like vitamins? No problem! There are a host of other network marketing opportunities out there. Legal services, insurance, candles, home cleaning supplies, beauty products, automobile cleaning supplies, self help products just to name a few. To stay in cash flow, sell only top notch products which require a monthly buy in from your organization. Your job as a network marketer is to build a client base of representatives. The days of twisting arms and hoodwinking people about what you are doing are over. You can get good guidance from those who have worked at the business for a while.

Today a lot of the large movers and shakers are recruiting entirely on the web. This is a great way to meet people who are already favourable to network marketing opportunities and who are looking for what you have to offer. The old tried and true method of getting face to face with a prospect to recruit them still is valid today, though has proven to be a slower and much more uncomfortable method for most people. Regardless of which way you chose to build your business, make sure the person who is your “sponsor” (the person you sign up under) can give you the support you will need to get a good start and has a you can duplicate that will quickly give you success. Make sure you will not be forgotten soon after joining and left without the support necessary to build.

Everyone needs a system and there are many great ones out there. Ask the people you are in contact what they are using and ask to see their successes. This will ensure you have upline support which makes you a winner right out of the gate. Ask yourself this essential question “Are those recruiting me building big and can I follow their lead and build with their system for success?” All the glitz and glamour the network marketing opportunity tries to sell you on, won’t grow your organization. Only you can do that and you require stellar support and an even more stellar system to grow with.

To summarize, the important factors are:

1) The opportunity – What do they sell? Can you get excited about it? What is their reputation?
2) You – Is this for you, all phone calls you must make, the mentoring you will do and team building? Will you stick with it until you are through the other side and enjoying the fruits of your labour?
3) The upline – Are they going to be there for you? Can you be plugged into a marketing system that will work for you and which you will do?

Choose wisely from the network marketing opportunities presenting themselves to you and you will find a fun and extremely profitable career that can propel you into a life most only dream about.
