Finding the right MLM or network marketing company can make the difference between earning big money and striking out with nothing. The diversification of MLM companies in recent years has made them more open and similar to other companies. Finding the best MLM network is important because you will be investing lots of your time and money into the company, and you want one that will give you a good compensation plan, has trustworthy and reputable leadership, and that has a product or service that actually provides value to the people who purchase it.
Worthwhile MLM Compensation Plan
While the basic compensation plan across all MLM platforms is generally the same, in which you pay money to initially join the program and then earn money by either selling products directly and most importantly by recruiting other people to join your downline, compensation plans can vary from company to company. Before joining any MLM or network marketing opportunity you should take your time to research the compensation plan fully so you don’t run into any surprises further down the road.
When reading about the compensation plan there are a few questions to keep in mind. Ask yourself if the plan is truly worth it when it comes to the amount of effort you’re going to have to put into the program or company. Does the company already have reputable people earning large sums of money? Are there any bonuses that you can work for to earn additional income on top of your normal earnings? Asking yourself these types of questions is one of the best ways to find the best compensation plan on any MLM program.
Trustworthy and Reputable MLM Leadership
Another major factor you should be looking into when choosing an MLM company or network marketing company is the leadership’s reputation around the internet community. You should obviously take long hard look at the top level leadership, including the owner(s) of the network. In addition you should be looking at lower level leadership and investigate a few things. Do they consistently earn large profits in the five or six figure range monthly? Do they actively travel around the country hosting events in an attempt to gain more followers?
Another thing to investigate is the exact system used by the top level leadership. Is their system easy to implement, even for average Joes, or is it complicated and complex, requiring up-front investment and time. The best programs are easy to follow and a newbie can usually get the hang of it within a few days. Finally, you should be looking at the communication the leadership offers. Do they communicate effectively and fluently with their downline, or do they leave them to fend for themselves?
Good MLM Products or Service
While some may argue that the product or service isn’t important, many experts would beg to differ. Nobody will join the program or make a purchase if the product is garbage or junk. Make sure the product or service offers a reasonable value and return to your customers.
