What is MLM
Asking what is MLM is a great questions that deserves a very fair answer. If you are considering getting involved in MLM then I have to say you really need to ask yourself a couple of questions before getting involved. I will try and be as much open as I can and for your information I am also invovled in MLM so I will give you a very fair and opened answer.
So What Is MLM?
MLM is an acronym for multi level marketing. Here’s the definition of Multi level marketing;
Multi-level marketing (MLM) is a marketing strategy in which the sales force is compensated not only for sales they generate, but also for the sales of the other salespeople that they recruit. This recruited sales force is referred to as the participant’s “downline”, and can provide multiple levels of compensation.
A lot of people get confused between the word multi level marketing (mlm) and pyramid scheme. In multi level marketing the members make income by promoting the company’s products and/or services and the members involved have the ability to build teams of people who use and/or sell the companies products or services in which they earn a percentage. Members of a multi level marketing company are mostly self employed and require only a minimum to earn the right to promote the companies products or services. So if you are still wondering what is mlm just understand that it is simply word of mouth advertising in which you get rewarded for sales generated via your recommendation.
Why and How Do Some Companies Use MLM
Its very simple. Some companies start out on a very small budget so instead of spending millions of dollars on marketing the use word of mouth advertising and reward it members in doing so. They simply do this by giving individuals the right to promote their products or services using word of mouth therefore spend their advertising cost and some of its profits to their members.
Is MLM Legitimate or Legal?
Yes! absolutely. They are completely different from a pyramid scheme which most people get confused by. Pyramid schemes first of all do not have any product or service and members are promised to financial just by signing up as business reps. Read this article to help you understand the difference between a pyramid scheme and MLM.
What is the best MLM company to join.
First of all you would be surprised that there are a couple of thousand companies operating a multi level marketing system but the DSA keeps track of the direct selling industry so it will be worth looking at. I am personally involved with worldventures and there are a couple of reasons why I chose to work with this company.
1. It is the only company operating MLM in the travel industry in the top 100 of the DSN List
2. The company is 9 years old and its #65 on the top 100 of the DSA top 100 list and still growing steadily
4. Travel is one of the largest industries in the world right now
5. Competition is less in this industry when it comes to MLM
6. Training is one of their core competencies
7. The company owners have a great vision and a great why for starting the company
Those are the reasons I personally chose worldventures. You can contact me to learn more about worldventures.
How To Generate 31 Leads In a Day
I remember when I started with my home business (just like everybody else) I was told to make a list of my friends and family which I did. After a while I noticed I had run out of my list and at this point I was simply desparate chasing friends and family trying to get them to see my deal. You see the problem was I was that I was going back to the same people over and over again who did not want to know about my business or want to listen to me because they knew I would be selling them something they did not want to buy. I really did not understand that i had to do something different to get a different results to what I was currently doing.
Sooner I discovered that in order to get more people to see my opportunity I had to approach new people and present to fresh leads. So I started connecting more with people and showing them my home business. This was much better because then I did not have to depend on the same 'dead-beat' leads who really are not interested whether they lived life full of fulfillment and fun. They just did not see things the way I did so I had to find people who did. Did it work? YES! of course. I was going through the numbers now although I had more people saying no I met people who were very serious and thought the same way I did – so building became easier. Now there was another problem about this lead generation strategy. I started work to get steady income into my business so now I did not have enough time anymore but I still needed to generate more leads in my business.
This is when I turned to the internet because if I could meet more people at the comfort of my own home it would make life easier. This lead generation strategy was dragging and taking longer than I thought and I was getting frustrated until I came across a link that led to this website and so far this is the tool I am using to generate my leads online for my home business.
The process I use to generate 31 leads a day a very simple process and is guaranteed to give you results if you are willing to put it to practise. A few words of caution before we get into the real stuff;
1. This uses a paid strategy. I find that paid leads are the most quality leads in my business that is why I use paid leads all day long. Of course I do have some leads i have generated using free strategies that have worked but not as effective as paid leads. There is a good reason for that but to be very honest I do not know as I do not remember.
2. You need certain tools for lead generation to help you measure and build your list. You will need aweber (an auto responder for managing email campaigns) , next you also need an irrisistible offer tailored to your target market and a marketing system to help you maximise on your leads as leads in themselves do not build your business unless they buy from you.
Dreamtrips Scam? or Not??
I will lay it out straight for you to decide. Is dreamtrips scam or not? It is not. Dreamtrips scam?? c'mon… you know better than this! I will do my best to tell the truth and the lies everything I know about dreamtrips and everything I think you should know to make that decision. I do not know why you decided to search out this keyword but I am writing this as a simple review of my first experience with dreamtrips.
In my opinion and first hand experience I do not know why some people call it dreamtrips scam but for whatever reason I think this is mostly a competitor issue or someone with personal issues with dreamtrips. In a minute I will be telling you about my first experience with dreamtrips. When I was shown this concept it was through someone I trusted so first of all I was not inclined to go online and type in the word dreamtrip scam or start finding out if dreamtrips was the real deal.
Although this person had not been on a trip yet two things infact 3 things made me take the decision I took so when I find people looking up the word dreamtrips scam it bugs me a 'tad'. Well, everyone is entitled to their own opinion but as I say I was introduced to this concept by someone I liked and trusted. I did not think too much about it because 1. I was looking for something I could work with long term to gain the freedom I was looking for 2. it was from someone I trusted (respect is key) 3. I simply wanted I lifestyle that I was not sure about! (heheee – does it make sense? :-D)
My Dreamtrip Experience NOT Dreamtrips Scam
Well, to my experience. When I joined I really was not in the position to take a dreamtrip. I was busy promoting the business and trying to get friends and family onboard. I was so centered on the medal I lost focus on the reason why dreamtrips was created in the first place (and i am not going to bore you with company history and bla bla blah) for freedom, fun and fulfillment.
A lot of people are trying to find cracks with dreamtrips and why people should not travel that way and all the nonsense but hey my point is not to come convince you that dreamtrips is the best thing that ever happened to humanity. I am simply sharing my experience so don't be nasty if you don' t like what I say. So I did not take a vacation with dreamtrips for a long time after I joined. Of course in the beginning it was not an issue for me because I knew I could take it whenever I needed to but it got to a point because I had not experienced it I started thinking along the lines of 'dreamtrips scam' – heheee! stupid me!!
Anyway cut the long story short I decided to take one quite recently with a couple of my team members and that was when I knew that it did not matter what anyone said and wrote and did including the naivity of 'dreamtrips scam' followers I had simply experienced what I call the best experience in travel I have ever experienced.
In short, we were treated like rock stars, I stayed in the very expensive The Corinthia Hotel Budapest and I was well pampered. Like I said I am not going to convince you but the proof is in the pudding itself. This is the absolute best and only way I know to vacation now no other way. You see, when my friends who had said no to me in the past and had said to me "dreamtrips scam" saw my photos some were blatantly jealouse. Some came asking and some simply ignored me even the more(some people are afraid of success) but the stupid once thought they could find a way of 'mocking' me which I found to be very foolish – only fools doubt proof.
So if you ask me, dreamtrips is 'rather legit' and not a scam. It is a VIP travel club that allows ordinary people like you and me to travel to places and vacation like the rich. You see, dreamtrips is not cheap and you are not cheap either – at least I do not think so (so get rid of your cheap and scarcity mentality). Stop thinking cheap and get in with us and let's help you live life with more fun freedom and fulfillment.
Have fun in life whatever you choose to do!
God Bless Ya!
Home Business Marketing; Stop Chasing Family & Friends
I remember this is how I started with my first home business;
“Hey, how are doing young man? you look really sharp what do you do for a living?” [that was my sponsor by the way]. Oh, thank you. I work in real estate, I am a property sales executive. Oh wow, listen I am working with a new company and you seem like a nice young man so you will make a lot of money in this company. You can do it along side your job and we have people to help you do it.
So, the conversation went on and we set a meeting and that is when I signed up – that was it! Next thing I know i had products with me that i did not know what to do with. So I did what every sane person would do, try and sell it to friends – which did not turn out really well. So i ended up using the products myself, sold a few of them and uhhh, that was it. No training because my sponsor had passed me to her sponsor who was meant to be helping somehow but that did not turn out very well. Tried, attended a couple of events and that was it I QUIT.
Then a couple of years later i was still looking for that key to make extra income and came across another person online. I joined this deal, got my products but this time there was a little bit of training available from my sponsor who was in another country. Well, I tried sold a couple of products and again I QUIT because I did not really understand a lot and it seem to be getting more expensive buying those products every month. So again I QUIT. I did not touch a work from home opportunity for another few years until I was introduced to what is now and has been my last deal for the past couple of years.
Now this is when things really began to change because unlike the other times I understood this was business and every business needed to be run like one. Every business has costs and aim for profits by driving up sales. This was in mind so I new this was a long haul for me not a sprint. This time i was not looking for a magic pill, I was looking for the real formula to make this work! I started looking everywhere for information until I came across this website, that explained why only a few seeking the freedom they seek from home business find it and the secret behind home business marketing and branding.
What it came down to for me was marketing. A lot of people flood into home businesses looking for freedom but do not realise that a home business is still a business and needs to be treated as a business. Home business marketing is one of the most important skills to acquire as a home business owner.
Chasing friends and family becomes a little bit arduous after a while and people start ignoring you. This is the one and most singular problem face by network marketers. Because we have not mastered or even learned the skill of marketing our home business, home business marketing become impossible then we become very dependent on getting back to the people we know.
After a while in my business I decided to reduce the number of times I called family and friends to take a look at my business making me feel ‘beggarly’ and small. This can be very devastating for the new home business owner and sooner or later they quit because they do not know how to market their home business.
I believe learning how to marketing your home business is the most important skill to master.
The Major Problem of Learning Home Business Marketing
1. It can be complicated and confusing; especially if you do not know where to start from or do not know what you are doing, learning how market your home business can take months if not years or painful learning experience.
2. It can take a lot of time and sacrifice learning how to market your home business
So How Do You Learn Home Business Marketing?
Here’s what the experts say;
1. Pick one strategy
2. Use it until you have mastered before moving to another strategy
3. Learn something new about your strategy 30mins everyday
So How Do I Know Which Strategy To Pick First?
This is where EDUCATION comes in very handy and this is the biggest difference between the winners and losers in our industry.
Coming across this website and taking action was the one best singular investment I have ever made in myself and my business. It completely changed my business and my skill set as a network marketer. Skills I can use in any business to create success when I want to.
Honestly speaking, if I knew of a better way I would let you know about it.
In my opinion there’s no better way – Period
Wouldn’t it be great if you had at the tip of your fingertip a slew of completely free training on any marketing strategy working in our industry today?
It would be great to get started for your business now would it not?
