MLM/Network Marketing is a legitimate and potentially lucrative way to work from home.
By directly selling products while creating your own upline downline, you can work your business opportunity part-time, from home, and at your own hours. Even with all the potential for making money, you should decide, though if this route is for you.
Many people are blinded by all the benefits of a business opportunity when determining if this type of business is right for them. You do not need to have a college degree or any experience to get into the industry.
The products are already manufactured and are usually shipped by the company directly to your customers. Plus, you choose your hours and your work location. In fact, many business opportunities are taken by people who work from the comfort of their own home.
Other benefits of having a business opportunity that is worked from home is that you have leverage; you continue earning commissions on a single effort. You do not need to come up with your own business or marketing plan, because the company does it for you. Also, recruiting and training systems are provided for you by the company.
Despite the numerous benefits, work from home businesses do come with some downfalls.
For instance, you usually start of marketing to family and friends. This is especially so if you are just starting your work from home business. This can create some friction and alienation, especially among people who are more acquaintances than close friends and family.
The work is selling, so you need to have a pretty strong backbone, as many people will tell you, “no” instead of the much-coveted “yes”. Therefore, it takes a lot of effort and motivation.
In order to make the most potential income, you need to continuously recruit new representatives. Plus, if you are working from home, your business opportunity will require that you purchase a certain amount of product each month or quarter, adding in a financial commitment.
Working at home works for some people. But other people find that it takes a great deal of discipline and motivation to get the job done without being easily distracted. Before you decide to take up a business opportunity and work at home, make sure that you get all the information that you need to make an informed decision.
So weighing out the good and bad, is this for you?
Well, if you are a self-starter with a lot of energy and motivation then it is a good start. If you have leadership skills and can set goals and meet them, then this might be for you, too.
Network marketing people have great people skills and are self-starters. They have strong powers of persuasion and can influence people easily.They also have an ability to guide and encourage others to work the program.
A business opportunity is an ideal trade to run on the Internet and work from your home. If you have the personality to run this type of business, then it could be the perfect opportunity for you.
