I am a network marketer, so today I want to talk about what I like about network marketing and the company that I am with.
I graduated from massage school six and a half years ago and through that training I had become very interested in wellness. It was as if a whole new world had been opened up for me. My Anatomy and Physiology instructor recommended Kevin Trudeau’s book Natural Cures “They” Don’t Want You to Know About. I don’t actually recommend the book because I found it to be a very difficult book to read, but there was one thing in the book that piqued my interested. Kevin Trudeau said that everyone should be sleeping on a magnetic mattress pad. I asked another massage therapist I knew about this and he introduced me to a network marketing company he had just joined.
I had never been introduced to network marketing before this point. Of course I had heard of Amway, Avon, Tupperware, and probably a couple others. Anyway, with massage being a time-dependent, labor-intensive, service-based business it made good business sense to have a product line that complemented it.
Fast-forward six years and I am still in network marketing with the same company. I don’t do much massage anymore because, like I said, it is a very time-dependent, labor-intensive business. So, why am I still doing network marketing, and with the same company?
I like network marketing because it is a business with a very low cost of entry, usually. The company I joined costs only $60 to join currently. It is also a business that you can run from home. You don’t need to rent office space or anything like that and I can have my family around all day if I want, which I do.
Network marketing is very accessible to “regular people”. If you can recommend a favorite restaurant or movie, then you have the most basic “skill” you need to do network marketing. From there, if you are coach-able, you can learn the rest.
There are tons of network marketing companies to choose from in just about every niche imaginable. Like I already said, I lean toward wellness. If you are willing to go with higher risk, then you can choose a brand new company. If you want some security in your business, go with an established company with no debt. I went the more secure route.
I am building my network marketing business entirely online. I built a website with WordPress similar to this more generic network marketing website. I attract readers to my blog on that site and direct that traffic to my company’s replicated website so that they can place orders. The company does all of the payment processing and order fulfillment. I just generate traffic by blogging and updating pages regularly and collect a check for my efforts.
I do sometimes get phone calls or email from customers who have questions and I follow up with an email to customers who order, so I’m not completely disconnected from my customers and prospects.
It’s that easy. Why would I switch to something else?
