What is Network Marketing?

So, what is this thing called “network marketing”? (also frequently referenced as direct sales, or MLM – multi-level marketing)

According to Entrepreneur.com:

“Network Marketing is a type of business opportunity that is very popular with people looking for part-time, flexible businesses. Some of the best-known companies in America, including Avon, Mary-Kay Cosmetics, and Tupperware, fall under the Network Marketing umbrella.” {read more…}

Personally, I think it’s a great fit for anyone who has dreamed of starting their own business, but isn’t necessarily keen on learning about (or acquiring) the usual nitty-gritty bits, like distribution, marketing campaigns, hiring employees, etc. With the Network Marketing model, you are a “recommender” of products for the company you join. And the company itself deals with all of the usual business management stuff for you!

Some of the awesome benefits of the company that I chose to partner with are:

  • there’s zero inventory that you have to purchase and keep on hand (there are products you’ll want to buy so that you can give your honest recommendations of them, sure. But you aren’t forking out a huge amount of money up front, with the hopes that you’ll sell off all of the stuff you bought)
  • you don’t have to do any “home parties”
  • everything is done online
  • there’s a TON of training
  • the systems for how you share are super simple (I’ll teach you!)
  • …more to come!
