Network Marketing is NOT

  • A 9-5 JOB. What you GIVE is what you GET in Network Marketing. Some people get away without doing any work and still collect a paycheck in their regular 9-5 job.
  • An INVESTMENT PROGRAM! Just because you bought a business opportunity, it will forever be a business ‘opportunity’ and not a business if you sit and do nothing. The money doesn’t grow by you becoming a distributor. The more you invest doesn’t mean you will necessarily earn more.
  • A GET RICH QUICK SCHEME! Those who make it big in MLM within a short time are the EXCEPTION to the NORM. Do you have what they have? (The experience,  tenacity, contacts, paid the price) Everyone who has made it had all paid the price.
  • A 100 METER DASH. It is a marathon. Your business is built over a period of time. The quality of your downline counts. Many will promise to join your business and never do. Better yet, many will join and never do anything. Timing is everything.
  • JUST FOR SALES PEOPLE. Some are NATURAL salespeople, being good in sales will not necessarily make you succeed in MLM. Selling or bringing someone in the business is the start. Training, tools, 3 way calls are all a part of the process as well.
  • A PYRAMID. It is not about the people on the bottom making all the money for the people on the top. Remember that if the downline works harder, they will eventually earn more than their uplines.
  • W-2 INCOME. This is a business and you must treat it like a business. You and only you alone dictate the size of your income. You are also responsible for all of your taxes.
  • ABOUT DUPLICATING YOUR STYLE. EVERYONE is DIFFERENT. Different people have a different personal touch when it comes to recruiting. Their relationships with their prospects vary from groups to groups. This is not a ONE SIZE FIT ALL style.
  • LIMITED TO ONLY YOUR MLM COMPANY. Please never ever treat your business like it is the ONLY business worth getting into (if you don’t get into MY MLM or if you join others, you are not my friend). Move on if they don’t join you! Please don’t do this. You will lose a lot of true friends.
  • SPAMMING social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter about your business opportunity. People will quickly delete you from their social media accounts. Instead offer how being in business can improve their bottom line or help them to achieve an additional stream of income.
  • ABOUT THE TOOLS/PRODUCTS.  Many people in your same business are sharing this same tool/product.  People do business with people who they know, like and trust. So be that type of person.

  1. Tammy: I love your content! Isn’t it the truth about the majority that that get into an opportunity that sit there & wait for something to happen. And we all know that all opportunities are not created equal but somehow, there are those magical few that can turn a pig’s ear into a silk purse…….. And then when you find that magical one of a kind, great leaders,timing/positioning, stellar comapny w/ stellar products, that serves more than just the networkers that work it, it is Golden…. Everyone, even if they just show up can do well, but once again the Cream Will Always Rise to The Top!!!!!!
    A plan, a system, a daily process, & being accountable for your actions will get you there every time. If you are working it everyday then you will get to the top!

    Thanks Stevi! Very well stated. I never hear of the pig’s ear comment- that really made me smile. You are so right about working it everyday!

  3. Hi Tammy,

    Good list of facts on the reality that one needs to recognize in being involved with network marketing. To briefly summarize each item brings clarity as to whether one is already involved or considering participating.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hey Tammy love the way you seperated everything, into readable chunks.

    I agrree as soon as you start to treat your MLM as a business thatr’s when things start to happen . The point you made about the people who make it big and fast in mlm. What people usally over look is the 2 to 5 years hard graft that they had to endure.

    Nothing come easy YOU have to work at it.

    Talik soon Graham
