Real Network Marketing Opportunities – Facts and Fiction

Real network marketing opportunities abound online and offline. Choosing which one is probably the hardest part of the journey, but it is a must to choose wisely. Here is a look at some simple facts and outright fictions of starting a network marketing business.

Finding a real and solid network marketing business opportunity is actually rather simple. Once you get past the “nay sayers” you will find that most are not only legitimate, but some have been helping people find success at home for a very long time. Finding one of these opportunities is easy, but finding a solid sponsor and system that works…well, that is the tricky part.

For those of us who have found success in this industry, particularly the health and wellness industry, have found that our success was bred from others success. Yes, we found a viable product, a great compensation plan, but most importantly, we found solid leadership that truly cared and led. This should be top priority when searching for a business in this industry, finding a real leader, not just a sponsor.

The Boom and Network Marketing Online

The network marketing industry at this time is seeing a BOOM! Not because it has truly slowed down, no, not at all. The reason for the boom is because when the economy is down, we are down and when we are down we will fight to get back up again. This particular industry has never really seen slow time, just slow reaction from those looking to build a successful business online or, offline.

There again is another fact! Today we have a choice in how we market our business…we can do this offline, the traditional way or, we can simply learn to take advantage of the Internet and the FREE traffic that is always here 24/7. While there is a learning curve to this, unfortunately there are only a few choice top notch network marketing opportunities that actually teach their distributors and members how to take advantage of the Internet and online marketing. Look for this when researching an opportunity for yourself.

Opportunity Scams?

Are there any scams out there? Maybe, but in reality it is not the company or the products that made people yell scam, it was the fact they failed and that it might not have been their fault. This either came because of poor due diligence, poor sponsorship or, and I am serious here, they were lazy and did not do what they needed to do! THE WORK!

I have seen many people walk into a network marketing opportunity and without clear vision on how to market their products, how to market the opportunity or even know how the compensation plan truly works. Without the training and know-how of these simple steps to success in the opportunities industry how are you to succeed? And, if you are not willing to do the work involved, why do you yell scam when you fail? The blame game, I believe, is the reason we even see the word scam out here, it is usually not the company or product, but ourselves being unwilling to do the work.

Facts and Fiction

If you believe that you are going to get “rich” overnight or even in a few months, most likely you will fail. Now, let me say this, it is not that some have not gotten “rich” in just a few months, I know they have, I have met many of them. This industry, just like any other, takes time to build and the effort put forth in growing it. Is it worth it? YES! Here is a questions for you; “If you knew you would be working from home even 1 year from now…would you give it a try?” OF COURSE!

There are many, many successful individuals in network marketing opportunities, I know, as I mentioned before I have met many of them. These individuals started out with their own backs against the wall. Each had fallen into some sort of catastrophe either financially or, even physically, but they did not stop, they did not give up and quit their dream. They worked, and they worked hard (although the work was not as hard as the 9-5 they did have) to build their business.

Real network marketing opportunities come with a lot of fact behind them for helping individuals find success. They also come with a whole lot of fiction that is either made up for “reverse marketing” or, people yelling scam because they failed…this is just a fact. Before you joining any opportunity however, it is best to know everything you need to know about it, most of all you need to understand it and apply all the training you receive to succeed.
