Network Marketing Business or Product?
As of recently, at least this past year, maybe a little bit longer, there’s been a lot of hubbub around getting more customers inside of your network marketing company. We saw some issues that different network marketing companies had with the FTC and their percentage of customers vs percentage of people that were attempting to build the business.
My answer is it depends. When we were actively building a network marketing business, in the company where we became the number one income earners and in another company where we had a multiple 6 figure a year income. It really depended. We brought in customers and we also recruited people who wanted to build the business.
One thing that you really should embrace, it’s actually more natural for most people to lead with the product.
When someone who’s never done a network marketing business before, who’s never talked to their warm market about making money or building a business. When all of a sudden, that type of person goes to their friends and family and talks about making money and getting in on the ground floor and crushing it, it can come across as weird.
If you’re new to the network marketing scene, you’re new to talking business with your friends and family. If you come to them and say, “Hey, I’m doing this side business. We got some great products. I’d love to show you what we have and maybe you’d like to purchase one or two to help support me.” That’s not weird. If you’ve never talked to them about business or never talked to them about making money, and you’re like, “Hey, I just got in this thing. I’m going to be rich. We’re going to make lots of money. You should do it with me.” It can come across as strange for most.
Just understand that it’s actually more long-term duplicatable to lead with the product vs the business.
