 Why Network Marketers Get (and sometimes deserve) A Bad Rap

It’s not the multi-tiered pay plan. That same plan is consistent with 95% of the sales pay plans in North America and almost entirely around the world. And no, it’s not because it’s an illegal ‘pyramid scheme’. In all honesty, think about that. Don’t you think that after fifty years as a marketing entity that if it was illegal it would have been shut down? Of course it would have.

Network Marketers

Look at the companies that have sold millions of dollars of products to the public, many of whom are NOT sales reps of the respective companies. Amway, Avon, USANA, Prepaid Legal, Pampered Chef, Meleluca, and Isagenix have all been in existence for a prolonged time, and clearly do not engage in business practices that are in the least bit unsavory.

The Problem Is The Network Marketers Themselves

The business model of network marketing has a low entry bar and that’s a good thing for people that don’t have a lot of money to start a business. At the same time it’s also a bad thing, because it allows all sorts of folks to get into the business even when they don’t possess the skills or the mindset required to make a business run.  Network marketing is really a form of ‘microfranchising’ and still requires hard work, dedication and clear focus along with a company direction.

Common Attributes Of Many Novice Network Marketers

  •     See Network Marketing as a get rich quick scheme
  •     Have no previous sales experienc
  •     Are not happy with their current level of income
  •     Are dissatisfied with their current employers
  •     Have very little money to invest (poor savers)
  •     Have an unrealistic expectation regarding level of revenue vs. the work required to produce it
  •     Have no previous experience as a business owner or manager

Tomorrow we are going to have a look at the unintended results that occur when you have the  “network marketers” mentioned above starting up in the business model of network marketing. It will become clear that allowing this type of person into your business will produce results that you really don’t want.

    Sigrid McNab – You are right on target with this post. We must get to the point in our network marketing profession that we begin to treat it as a profession. Whether we are new to network marketing or have been at it for a while, we must realize that it is a "real" profession and that it takes time, effort, energy and dedication – just as any other profession does!

    Thanks so much Criss. Too often it is treated like a hobby or started with unreasonable expectations.

    Yes so true. I’m a direct sales rep myself and I can tell you there is work to it. It’s not magical, it isn’t for everyone. It takes desire, time, money, passion, and leg work. Even though the company has their business plan, you yourself still need your own business plan. I ask people about their business plans to those that want to join my team.

    Hi Sigrid,

    Great post and I got to agree with you. I also want to point out to you that most often than not Network Marketing companies make this business look like ‘walk in the park’ and they back it by testimonials of people who are generating massive income. Unfortunately they don’t tell how hard they worked to get there, how long it took them and how many new skills they had to learn.
    So most novice network marketers obviously expect way more than they are capable of but the few who get that this is a business will put some effort to learn the skills.

    Look forward to see the next post.

    Very true Damayanthi. It is unfortunate that some network marketing companies out there do make this business look like a walk in the park. It takes hard work, persistence and integrity.
