The hardest part of any MLM business is bothering your family friends and everyone else to join your business, that and being treated like a cyclone ranger wherever you go. Of course the main issue with any MLM is the zealots who have blinkered out ‘normal society’ and are just ‘going for it!’
In the Internet age wouldn’t it be good if you could just sell some products online that are well respected and popular and get the commission and never to mention the recruiting side of your business as such to anyone , unless they asked?
This kind of; ‘all or nothing’ hard core MLM training was all well and good in the 80’s and 90’s before the internet, and if you had no other way of making money than hard-wiring your brain like a cult leader to not stop and block out all negativity (common sense) and just try to recruit every man , woman and dog your see, and this ardent behaeviour will produce the vibrations that make some want to follow you and the vast majority to cross the road to avoid you.
The type of Sales where you have more enquiries than you need is what top sales people call selling on the good foot, it’s really hard to mess something up when people have come to you and made an enquiry, regardless of what you are selling if someone came to you; they are hot leads, and the sales world becomes a completely different and more enjoyable paradigm if people can make the first move and come to you.
I have been around Direct Sales since 1984 and I have been to seminars with many MLM companies and with jobs selling public and private sector products. I do not think I am the only one who feels really queasy when the sychophants start dancing and screaming when a ‘well respected person in their industry’ comes in the room, it’s like they were throwing 100 dollar bills at people.
Ater these seminars I used to ring friends up and ask; ” Well how has getting that Diamond distributors signature helped you make your first $1,000 a month? it hasn’t, oh dear, better get on the phone then and con some more people to come to your house to meet a friend who, after dinner, proceeds to throw a white board up and makes everyone throw up their meatloaf!”
MLM Distributors who have recruited lots of people but have not proved their selling abailty selling any decent amount of their own products should not be allowed to recruit anyone, they are messing with people’s futures let alone their time.
The industry sadly is awash with companies who disguise a joining fee by giving you a load of products, in fact it was recently proven that the vast majority of sales that come in from many MLM’s are from the sale of their starter pack, who the vast majority don’t sell, and the vast majority of these products lay wasted in someones garage or bathroom/ kitchen cabinet as a stark reminder to the original purchaser of how stupid they were thinking they could be financially free.
The distributor who sponsered you didn’t tell you the heartbreak, the pain, the misery , the failed marriages and lost friends that it would involve, and as soon as the pain started the products were put away never to see the light of day again, oh the pleasure of a monthly pay check!
The best and only way to run an MLM is to be first 1000% sure of the products, if you try to lie to yourself these vitamins made your granny go from a wheelchair to a triathalete then you are lying to yourself and your body language won’t lie to others!
Concentrate only on selling products online start from the bottom, learn your trade.
Second, make sure your companies products are well respected, if I had a dollar for everytime someone said to me oh Amway people are mad, her from down the road was one once, I don’t talk to her anymore after she tried to recruit me, …but the products are good!
Develop your retail side of the business, use the products you like, and don’t use the products you don’t, eventually, and don’t rely on the time it takes , someone will ask you where you got your lip stick, aftershave, the washing powder that makes your clothes smell nice, the water filter, the pots and pans, the diet shakes. etc etc.
Did you know Amway pay a weekly commission on sales of 25% in UK direct to a bank? They also give you your own online shop to sell their products and to get the trail commission each time you sell a product that is deleivered to the customer direct, and any quibbles are between the manufacturers and client not you, all for free without buying a single item or paying any fees whatsoever to join?
Even if you got just one customer to buy say £50 a month from your shop thats 600 quid a year turnover and 150 quid a year to you paid weekly every time he or she shops online, until the day they stop buying!
In fact with Amway, the oldest and the company that invented MLM, you are not allowed to recruit anyone until you have 5 or more customers who buy from your online shop around £100 a month between them, even then after that, you have to do an online test to see if you know enough about the products to sell them well before you can entertain the idea of recruiting.
MLM has come a long way since those American tapes would shame you into rugby tackling the binman and forcing him to accept he will be broke at retirement and even though he thinks you are certifiable now, he will be having your babies in 3-5!?
I was riddled with torment throughout the entire 80’s and 90’s thinking I will never be rich until I ‘get over myself’ and talk to everyone about MLM and get humiliated 5 times a day, until I realised that MLM is not for everyone, well the recruiting side is not for everyone!
Now however, you can forget all about recruiting, sell a few things consistently from your free online shop each customer you register is yours for life, enjoy the weekly commission, and bonuses. Then one day not to long away someone will say to you: “hey how do you make money doing that, do you think you could show me?” and hey hasn’t the world turned on it’s head when someone asks you how to do MLM?
