If you don’t know exactly what network marketing is, you won’t understand the benefits of MLM , or multi-level marketing. It is also called network marketing, which is a unique system used to channel goods or services from a manufacturer to a consumer using a network of home based Independent Reps. It is actually utilizing a referral system which is something you do every day without even realizing it! You may or may not remember how we were taught that the manufacturer sells to the salesman, then the salesman sells to the store and the store sells to the consumer. In

Do you see the benefits of why a Business at home will use network marketing as a smart business model? Anyone can start a home business using Network Marketing. Try to find a product you will use and can tell others how much you love it and it will be very easy for you to build a business so large that no one can take away if that’s what you want to build.
Can you think of some companies that use Network marketing as their business model? Do you remember the Fuller Brush man from years ago who used to come knocking on your parents door, selling brooms and cleaning products? He would bring a bunch of items that you could purchase right to your door at home and you could buy them directly from him. That is called Direct Sales. Instead of spending big dollars advertising, which could cost them millions of dollars each year, they have Independent Salespeople go “door to door” if you will, to sell their products.
Selling directly offers consumers a product that is brought right to them, that you can’t find in a “store” and the customer service is usually very good. Think about it, have you ever bought something form a direct sales company? Have you ever been to a Mary Kay Party and bought some of their make up, or a Tupperware or Discovery Toy party? You work directly with the Distributor and he/she will sell you something that you usually can’t find anywhere else.
So, understanding how direct sales, or Network Marketing works, should be a big factor in using it as a business model for yourself.
Why wouldn’t you use it as your own business model?
The pros of MLMs are high. You get a distinct product that your customers can’t find anywhere else. You have control over what you sell and how much you sell and that means you decide how fast or slow your business becomes successful.
