Why People detest Network Marketing?

There are few industries that ignite passion as does the network marketing industry. Rarely is there a middle ground. Most people clearly choose a camp. It is the best in the industry in the world or is the worst thing in the world. Always have friends around me smart, successful and stubborn, I have heard many points, examples and rational for both sides of the argument. I think I see clearly why the multi-level marketing (MLM) or network marketing, move the emotions.

1. It highlights the need to be re-educated.

The vast majority of people are resistant to change, especially the slow change, which requires an effort. Because Network Marketing is a real industry, requires a level of skill that is learned - like any other industry is, people do not like. If a mechanic decides he wants to be a nurse, is supposed to go through a certification process for training / education and, possibly, to succeed in the new industry. The same is true of course for people doing any type of career change - except moving in the network marketing. For some strange reason and totally illogical, people who decide to enter the new industry do believe that their regular industry has prepared them to succeed in MLM. Others believe they can spend an hour or two and learn what it takes to succeed in an industry totally new to them. Maybe it's because the cost to participate is so low compared to university degrees and technical certifications, etc. However, people refuse to see the industry as real, even though, in many cases, the MLM company is more successful than the company that employs them.

People hate MLM because you really should take the time and apply the effort to learn something new.

2. The draw unfair.

MLM companies do not require special education, degrees, social status, credit rating, test or interview to participate. There is no recognition of privilege or pedigree. All success comes from the results - nothing more. This scares the hell of many. Good manners, "successful", intelligent, wealthy, etc all start the same place as their social opposites. You can not hide behind a diploma from a large school, or you can not hide behind big words and appearances. MLM is a put up or shut up environment. You have to show real value and leadership ability. There are few people who are eager to see how they compare on a global casting. Do not misunderstand me, corporate America is hard and difficult, but for many of the limits in a career that has less to do with its production with the view of others. In corporate America is not the power and authority. . . for some.

People hate MLM because there is no place to hide from their actual performance.

3. Standing naked.

This is a big one. When you start an MLM business you have to tell family and friends. You do not have to try to sell anything, but like if you open a new restaurant you have to let them know. People are afraid because everyone (well it feels like it) comes to see that they say what they will do with the business. That, in most cases will not volunteer to help - and why should they, not their dream. For a large group of people who come to declare to the world that are in the business and do nothing, showing the world that are nothing more than charlatans - just dreamers. And then the MLMers are trapped by their own lack of action. If you say the company does not work then they look silly for not recognizing a bad deal. If they say does not really work (few admit), they are not serious, are frivolous or lazy.

People hate MLM because they know that the world will know what they have done or left undone.

4. Ugly Duckling.

I think the reason the grand final that people hate MLM can actually be larger. When you decide to do something different to radically change his condition, he screams in silence around you that you have (which is usually the same as what your friends are) is not sufficient. You deserve more. Well, in defense of their lack of value to you in your quest to be more, most people choose to defend who they are and where they are. They should condemn the vehicle for change or allow the vehicle is valid, but do not have enough to try. . . . To test! Because that's all what you say to do when they pick up the banner of an MLM. . . for testing. There are very few acceptable reasons why not even try something that has great promise. The most courageous act coward can do may be to defend his act of cowardice.

Why use such harsh terms? Because most people in the language is full of complaints, the negative perception and what if - some day. . . but do not take any action to change anything. Here in the land of opportunity that many ridicule a person trying to build a bridge to a truly wonderful life, while taking zero for change outside of what we have to do their work.

All MLM companies require the production well, but require teamwork, but require self-denial, but require passion, but require faith in others, and require personal growth.

People hate MLM because of this great country of opportunity, of capitalism, no borders, freedom of expression and unlimited information, MLM is the clearest mirror on the wall that will always show you who you are, despite where you come from, it seems, and what you say.

What is the problem with Network Marketing and Multi-Level Marketing (MLM)?

It never ceases to amaze me the extreme polar views on the subject of network marketing and MLM. Some people are passionate about it in the end, and there are famous authors, including the likes of Robert Allen, Mark Victor Hansen and Robert Kiyosaki make and defend. However, in many circles, you might as well be declared a leper to admit that in network marketing.

So, what's the problem with MLM and network marketing?

Maybe it's the structure of the pyramid? But you can not really disagree with the structure, almost all compensation levels large sales organization in the world does. Salespeople get commission, and sales managers overrides or bonuses on top of this, sales managers and above that, and vice president at the top of this.

Or perhaps the fact that you have to pay to participate in it? But that can not be-that's a standard model of the franchise. And I assure you, the franchise fee of most traditional franchises dwarf the cost of registration of any MLM program by comparison.

But, certainly, are not illegal pyramid or "Ponzi" schemes. This is where the money is all that was done outside the firm to others, with little or no real product that is delivered every time. But despite all that may have perceptions of people, the fact is that Amway, Excel, Meleleuca, PrePaid Legal, USANA, and many others have sold millions and millions of dollars of products to happy customers, many of the repeats which are not. Therefore, there may be a perception problem here, but if so, the perception is out of line with reality.

But surely the bad reputation MLM'ers has a base a little more on the fact that the illegal pyramid scheme and then?

The real problem with MLM is not MLM itself, but some of the people it attracts. Network marketing is a business model, and it really is a "micro-franchising". Its advantage is that it has a very low cost of entry, with exceptional earning potential, and some people get it.

However, the very things that make it attractive make it attractive to many who are not really qualified or prepared to become business owners. The salient features of MLM make it attractive for people who:

* There have been no well in his business or profession and have little money saved to invest
* No previous experience in the ownership or management of a company
* No previous experience in sales
* They have little or no experience developing business relationships other than the employer / employee / colleague
* Not satisfied with their current income level
* They have unrealistic expectations of the amount of work compared to revenues

Do not get me wrong, I'm not saying there is anything wrong with any of these things, or even that this describes the majority of network marketers, only describes a disproportionate number of network marketers, and many of them never do anything about it.

As a result, many marketers end-to-network:

* Over-selling opportunity
* Inappropriate discuss business in social situations
* Coming across as desperate
* Too much focus on new recruits and neglecting existing customers as a result
* Be incorrect or misleading when it comes to your business

Again, I'm certainly not saying that this describes the majority of network marketers, but describes enough to tarnish the reputation of others. To pre-judge someone based on the basis of a small minority of people in that group is horribly unfair, but we must realize that most prejudices have some basis in reality, although it has been distorted.

So what's the solution?

There's a first time for everything. And network marketing / MLM is a great opportunity for people to have their first business, your first sales role, etc. What I mean is it to recognize what it is, is a business, and you are an owner of business. And if you've never owned a business before, if you've never done sales before, if you've never net before you need to learn how, not just the network marketing / MLM experts, but from established experts in these fields.

Network marketers who are serious about building a business should read and learn about business fundamentals, the latest sales techniques and marketing strategies for networking and business development, etc, not only to exchange tips on weekly or monthly meeting of his team. It acts as a small business, and people will treat you as such.

I have always curious about other people's advice to build a team and asked Michelle if there was any advice I wanted to share. She said she feels the most important part of team building is to follow a simple and teach others ... to "double up". He said it's important, "the interest, share information, monitor and collect a decision." And that, "when you show others how to do the same as creating a huge boost."
