There is a lot of confusion around what is
So what is
Often people say, “That sounds like a pyramid”. Sure it does. Everything is a pyramid. Think of it this way. There is always a top dog (the big boss) some lower level dogs (the vice bosses) and some underdogs (the worker bees). It is legal, it is ethical and it is profitable if done properly.
Do you believe in the product or service being offered?
First is the product. You will have to hold your head up high and proudly proclaim you have the best mousetrap ever invented so you better believe it yourself. In other words is the company selling a product you believe in?
So one good test is to ask yourself if you would use the product normally and would you recommend it to others? If the answer is, “no” then this company is probably not a good fit for you.
If you honestly believe in the product yourself and use it in your life, then things get a lot easier. You don’t have to sell anything, just share your experience with your friends and family.
What about support?
One of the beauties of network marketing is, your upline will provide lots of support. They are there to help you. In a traditional employee/ employer relationship, if the employee does not perform, he or she is easily replaced.
In a network marketing company, there are no employees. If you are struggling, your upline will jump in to help because their success depends on your success.
How long has the company been around?
With a start-up company like most traditional business, most will fail in the first several years. So while it may sound good to get in on the “ground floor”, most of the time it’s better to position yourself with a more established business. My personal opinion is a company that has been here 3 to 5 years has a good chance of survival and is still, in many cases a growing, vibrant opportunity.
