My background is in computer technology. 10+ years as a systems engineer/administrator. I've been interested in MLM's since 1999 but never found one that really matched what I wanted to share with people. Happy to say that I've found the company that I'm sticking with for good. If I can give every person one solid piece of advice it's this:
When I was 1st looking into MLM's, I always heard that there are 4 key things to look for: Company, Products/Services, Compensation, and Upline/Sponsor.
There's a 5th one that hopeful associates always seem to leave out when they tell their prospects what to look for in an MLM and that is confidence or self-confidence.
Since you’re still reading, I'll to go into a little more detail on what each of these key components mean to me.
1) Company - Join one that has been around for 10+ years, with a President/CEO that has a powerful vision that you can embrace and see yourself in, and a company who products or services stand out above the rest in their city, state, country and the world.
2) Products/Service - The purpose of joining an MLM is to improve the lives of those who use the products/services that you're earning a commission from. If you believe that the products/services do just that and there's hard proof to back it, then put a check mark next to this one.
3) Compensation – Binary, binary, binary. It simply makes the most sense. Infinite wide matrixes have a limit as to how many levels deep it goes is bad news. You want to do the work once (have a customer for life) and get paid for it for life. Same goes for the associates that you bring in. Limits in levels deep means that if an extremely successful associate joins on your deepest level, then all of the business that that associate brings in you only get a fraction of what you could have gotten had you personally sponsored that associate yourself. With binary, it doesn’t matter where that associate is placed or by whom he or she was sponsored by. Binary instantly creates a team effort. Another thing to look for in the compensation, just like AT&T and their Rollover Minutes, you want your commission points to roll over too and to never stop rolling over until they turn into a commission check.
4) Upline - Work in progress...
5) Selfconfidence -
