There are many things to consider when you’re looking for a network marketing business. There are so many options available today that choosing one can be daunting.
I believe that you can only be successful with a company if you are passionate about their product or service. If you cannot sell the products due to lack of enthusiasm, all the rest of the considerations mean nothing.
Be sure you believe in the product and that there is a high demand at a reasonable price for whatever you will be selling? Conduct a “Google” search on the product name to see what responses are generated.
Do your due diligence, lots of research on any company in which you may be interested. When you do an Internet search of the company, look for red flags. Are there negative posts about the company or many complaints posted by former distributors? Most companies have a few complaints, but if there are a lot, run the other way!
Your research should include the management/ownership of the company. Did they own another company that failed in the past? Have you seen negative information about them?
Do you like the compensation plan the company offers? Do you fully understand it? Some people like working with companies that offer a variety of ways you can earn money; others like simple, straightforward comp plans. Does the compensation plan fit into your long-term goals?
Once you have completed your “homework” about the company itself, you’ll want to choose wisely who you want for your sponsor. Which team leader you select can make a difference as to whether or not you are successful in your business.
It is important to select a team that offers support and training in the basics of growing your business – both on and offline. To select a prospective sponsor or team leader, you can do an Internet search on the business name to see which names come up the most and are ranked highest in the search. Select two or three people, and search for blogs they have written, forums in which they participate and videos they have created. You can learn a great deal about a person from their blogs, forum posts and videos.
You may want to connect with those few prospective sponsors on Facebook, Twitter, etc. to learn more about them. If they permit it, attend a couple training calls with the team. Learning about the person with whom you’ll be working can go a long way toward making the best choice.
If you take your time and are thorough when researching your next business, team and sponsor, the possibility of building a strong network marketing business increases greatly.
