Should You Consider Network Marketing?
April 09, 2007
No one system of commerce has received as much enthusiasm
on one sign and criticism on the other. I am a big supporter of the
concept of network marketing for reasons I state below. However, it is important to factor
in some questions when choosing to affiliate with one of the many fine
network marketing companies available:
1. Is this a company YOU want to be associated with? Do they have the track record, integrity, management, and stability necessary to meet YOUR needs?
2. What organization and team will you be joining within the company? What is its training system like? Do you like and can you relate to the leaders? Are they supportive and helpful? Can they lead you to success?
3. Is the product needed, compelling, credible, and something you can be passionate about?
4. Are you willing to invest the time, effort, and money in my training and in the promotion of my business that it will take to succeed? Am you willing to take ownership of the responsibility for your own success?
5. Are you willing to grow, change, and be challenged? Can you take direction, criticism, and help?
6. Is the compensation system sound and is it something that rewards success and organizational growth?
7. Do you like people or are you willing to learn to like people?
8. Are you willing to put in one full year of effort before assessing success or failure?
If you can answer most of those questions affirmatively, here are some reasons I believe you should give it a shot:
* Network marketing is based upon a multiplication of influence model. A person becomes effective by leveraging time and influence and developing leaders.
* Network marketing is a way of helping people develop their fullest potential, to do what others say can't be done.* Network marketing helps people develop character. Unless there is character development, success is unlikely.
