A Typical Pay Structure differs for a MULTI-LEVEL MARKETING Scenario, compared to that of Traditional Employment, in different ways. How so?
First, an MLM is usually Marketed as a START- UP BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY. You are now an
ENTREPRENEUR, working as much, or as little as possible. It is all up to you.
Of Course, having your own Business requires ONE VERY IMPORTANT INITIAL REQUIREMENT: INVESTMENT CAPITOL.
Thats Right, unlike employment you may be Familiar with, an MLM Requires You to make an Investment before you can make any Money. Along these lines, You may find that one of your first out of pocket expenses is:
THE LICENSE OR DISTRIBUTOR FEE- Whatever type of Product you will be Selling, The Parent Corporation is probaby going to Charge you a Fee to become an EXCLUSIVE DISTRIBUTOR OF THEIR PRODUCT, WHICH IS NOT AVAILABLE IN STORES. (This is a Sample of the SALES PITCH USUALLY GIVEN TO PROSPECTIVE INVESTORS, WHICH IS WHAT YOU REALLY ARE.)
The Cost or Fee can DIFFER VASTLY, DEPENDING ON THE PRODUCT YOU WILL BE SELLING. Some of the more POPULAR TYPES OF PRODUCTS ARE:
- HOME HEALTH CARE.
- NUTRITION SUPPLEMENTS.
- CLEANING PRODUCTS.
- WATER FILTERS, OR DEVICES TO CLEAN, PURIFY, OR EVEN "ENERGIZE" TAP WATER.
It is Quite True that the Brand Name Products you are now Selling are not found in Stores, BUT HIGHER QUALITY AND CHEAPER PRICES ARE NOT THE REASONS. When COMPARABLE PRODUCTS ARE FOUND IN RETAIL SETTINGS, MLM ITEMS ARE USUALLY MORE EXPENSIVE, AND DO NOT MEET THE SAME QUALITY STANDARDS.
However, some MLM products are so UNIQUE, that it is sometimes hard to find similar items for Sale in a Retail Store. This in itself, is used as a MARKETING TOOL. You are now offering YOUR FRIENDS, RELATIVES, NEIGHBORS etc., a PRODUCT "THEY" DONT WANT THE PUBLIC TO FIND OUT ABOUT.
