You’ve probably learnt that MLM is a real and very lucrative work-from-home business, and you’re now very eager to join an MLM network. But don’t, please. At least, not until after you’ve read this article.
Do you know that not all MLM networks and businesses are worth joining? Yes, many of them are either scams or simply not just worth joining, for many reasons.
So, before joining an MLM network, you should find out whether it is worth joining or not. Did you just ask how?
Well, here are six good questions to help you, plus the answers that you should expect from a good network:
1. Would the products do well in market?
A good MLM business must offer a product that is unique and that many people need. You won’t make any profit if you’re marketing mundane products that people can find almost everywhere.
So, if an MLM network is offering products that aren’t unique or that most people don’t need, you’d better find another network.
2. Does the network emphasize more on you recruiting other distributors than on selling?
Well, that’s a red flag. A good MLM network should be interested in how much sales you make, not in how much new distributors you bring into the network.
So, if a network isn’t offering any helpful tips on how you can market or sell their products better, such a network is most likely interested in more distributors rather than sales.
Also, if a network promises you greater reward for recruiting new distributors than for selling its products, avoid such a network.
3. Has the network been long established?
Being in business for decades is a sign of a good MLM network. If an MLM network is new or just a few years old, I wouldn’t advise you to join such. If you do so, you’ll be risking your money.
4. Is the network overhyped?
Never be deceived by glorifying testimonials displayed on an MLM network’s home page. Such testimonials could be fictional.
Are the testimonials too good to be true? Then avoid that network like a plague.
5. Are there high-pressure CTAs?
Check the website of an MLM network for statements like, “You have just 48 hours to join the success train…”, or “This is a limited time opportunity…”
Such statements stimulate people to take action without deliberation. So, avoid MLM schemes that try to use them to “charge” people up.
6. What are others saying?
To get genuine information and reviews about an MLM scheme – or any other online business – do a Google search. You’ll always find honest reviews about the scheme – written by either satisfied or jolted folks.
If there are too many complaints about an MLM network, why should you consider such, let alone joining it?
Be smart. Do your research well. If you ask all these questions before choosing an MLM scheme, you’ll never make the wrong choice.
