Do you want to hear the truth about Multilevel marketing? Many people have a bad taste in their mouths when it comes to Multilevel Marketing companies (MLMs). Understandably so, but just like most instances there are right and wrong ways to go about doing things. Whether you’ve been the recipient of someone’s pushiness or witnessed it from afar, it’s awkward and can be uncomfortable to say the least.
The Truth About Multilevel Marketing
Before you completely write off people who are trying to make an honest living off of their MLM business, there are a few things that you may not already know and should at least take into consideration.
What is Multilevel Marketing?
Also known as network marketing, MLM is a system of retailing in which consumer products are sold by independent salespeople (distributors). Earnings in MLMs are based on effort and ability to sell consumer products supplied to the distributor by the company. A MLM company will also encourage distributors to build their own sales force by recruiting, motivating, supplying and training others to sell products, earning a percentage of the sales from the sales force.
What is a Pyramid Scheme?
Pyramid schemes concentrate mainly on making quick profits earned by selling the right to recruit others. Pyramid schemes focus more on recruiting other participants than selling the product or service, making little to no mention about the market for the item. Pyramid scheme participants try to recoup their investment in products by recruiting potential investors. In short: Pyramid schemes are not about the product.
This video is really silly but I love the way it explains pyramid schemes.
If a friend you knew owned a coffee shop or an auto repair shop, you would choose to give them your business because you know them. Peoples’ businesses are their livelihood and the way that they make their living. You and I recommend things all of the time whether it’s a movie, an artist, a restaurant, or your favorite drink at your favorite coffee shop. The list goes on and on. People in MLMs just happen to get compensated for recommending their product. What’s so wrong about that?
Take this shirt for example, I really like this shirt. If I posted this photo and talked about my shirt in the caption and said where I got it I would be recommending this shirt and company. We all do this. Whether we realize it or not. I would love to be paid commissions by Cotton on or any other store. 🤷🏽♀️ Who wouldn’t?
I just recently began using the app Vero and it gives you the option for recommending books and songs. SAME THING. We do these things ALL OF THE TIME.
Multilevel Marketing For Me
I personally would never try to make money off of a product that I don’t believe in and don’t personally use myself. Making an income off of sharing wellness is just an added bonus to great, clean, safe, natural products that my family loves and uses. We would use all of Young Living’s products whether I was a distributor or not. Because. they. are. that. good. I had been part of the “Crunchy” community since December 2014. With that said I had worked my way through so many “natural”, “green”, “toxin free”, store bought brands before I dove into Young Living in October 2016. Their products are the real deal. No company stands a chance in light of Young Living as a company, what they have to offer, and the standards by which they produce their products.
