I am looking for 4 people. Not just any 4 but 4 who have something most people don’t have.
I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me explain.
I first heard the term “network marketing” in 1990. Now I know most who are reading this will be leaving as soon as they see those two words. That’s OK. It just means anyone who leaves without reading the whole thing doesn’t make the cut for the 4.
If you are still reading at this point you might have a shot at making the team but I have more to explain.
The reason I started with when I first heard those words is so everyone still reading can figure out how much experience I have in it. Funny thing is most of my experience was bad in the past. There were a few opportunities we actually made some money with and a couple of product lines we learned about in the 90’s that we still use and market.
There are 2 reasons most people shy away from network marketing. Either they have tried it and had 1 or more bad experiences with it or they never really learned enough about it to make it work. There are a few out there that have no clue how it works because they always followed someone blindly hoping it would work. There are other reasons but those are the two big ones.
There is another group of people out there that have made a lot of money along with helping others do the same. This is a large group and they all have one thing in common. They understand the power of people helping people to be successful.
What I also know is there is another large group that is always growing that has never tried any kind of marketing and when they see how easy network marketing is they excel because no one told them it was hard to do. Included in this group are all the people who have tried and failed but still believe in the system.
The first thing people ask about is the price of the products. A lot of good companies with great products get a bad name because of this but it is because people don’t understand WHY they are expensive. It is easy for anyone who understands the matrix and how it is built.
If you are still reading after the dreaded M-word came out then you might want to practice some follow thru at this point and get involved because that means you understand the power of a good matrix with a great company and an even greater list of products that anyone can find benefit from using.
If you are scratching your head and wondering what this is all about and how you can make money your next step is to get in touch with me so I can teach you what all great marketers already know about the matrix and how it powers network marketing.
After thirty years and many companies and opportunities checked out or tried I feel comfortable teaching those who are interested just exactly how to make money and build a large network of people around you all wanting the same thing.
Let me take a minute here to explain why network marketing plans get a bad rap. Back in 1980, I was in the US Army when I learned what an “Airplane Ride” was.
I also found out the hard way how illegal they are.
I had just arrived in Germany at my permanent duty station when someone asked me if I wanted to make some fast money. Of course, I said yes. I was quickly relieved of $25. of my hard-earned money and given a sheet of paper with a diagram drawn on it that resembled a pyramid. My name had been added to one of the “spots” on the bottom row which consisted of eight spots and handwritten on the bottom were directions about how everything worked and how I needed to find at least two other people to join me.
The Airplane Ride consists of a pyramid with 1 person taking up the top spot. That spot is referred to as the pilot seat. Directly below the pilot, there are two spots that represent the two co-pilots. The third row has four spots which are called the crew spots and at the bottom, there are eight spots which are the passengers.
The cost for a passenger seat can be whatever the original pilot decides. Most usually cost between $20. and $100. get involved.
Once there are eight passengers paid in full to the pilot the airplane splits and the two co-pilots each start their own airplane which needs payment from eight more people to follow suit and split. It is easy to see how lucrative it can be especially if you are the one to start the whole thing.
The two problems with this form of income are first and foremost they are highly illegal and the epitome of a Ponzi scheme and the other is they never last long enough for a lot of people to make money.
It is easy to understand how people who have no knowledge of true network marketing can mistake a perfectly good company for a scam. Both plans implore a “matrix” diagram in the shape of a pyramid but that is where the similarities stop.
There is a short checklist one may use to figure out if an opportunity is MLM or network marketing-based or just another scam.
First, is there a real company with a history that can be checked and second, do they have products or services that are reasonably priced?
Without these two very important factors it is probably a scam.
I took the time to explain this because when you are marketing in this manner you will hear the question a lot. “How is this NOT a pyramid scheme?” With the 2 problem checklist, it is easy to figure it out.
There are hundreds if not thousands of companies around the world that use network marketing to sell their products and services. A few well-known companies are Avon, Tupperware, and Amway. Say what you will about these companies but all three are a major success because of “Distributors” like me and others who understand the POWER of the matrix when used correctly.
