Involved With the Best MLM Business – Fail If You Do Not Do This!

Every day thousands upon thousands of people are approached. In most if not all of these sales pitches, it is shouted out that “my MLM business is the best MLM business out there”…and here is why!

When I say “sales pitches”, I am referring to someone who is currently involved with an MLM and is talking to their friends, family members, and acquaintances about it.

You see, most MLM businesses (even the best MLM businesses out there), ask you to fill out a list of a hundred or so people, give you a script to follow, and want you to talk to these people you are already friendly with. That is fine I guess but…

What do you do when you have finished your list? I mean this is the list of the people in your life you are the most comfortable with! Even if you are successful getting some of these people to sign up under you…

What next?

Here is where everything falls apart. You are led to believe that if YOU can sign up three people and you can teach THOSE three people to sign up three, and those NINE people can be taught to sign up three each…

YOU will be making lots of money!!

That never happens. Most people will give up “way” before that occurs.

Here is why most people fail. Even if they are involved with the best MLM business out there…

“You Need To Treat It Like It Is A Business!!

It takes work and a whole lot of it. Making money will not happen over night. There is a learning curve involved and much to know. You should work your MLM business like you would a part time job in which you probably go to some brick and mortar type building and physically do 12-20 hours a week.

Sadly, the majority of people who get involved in an MLM do not realize this fact. If a person does take their MLM business seriously, there is no doubt in my mind that you will end up successful!

How to Find the Best MLM Business For You – And Maximize Your Chance of Success

It’s the “holy grail of MLM” – the quest for the best MLM business opportunity. I must get this question at least twice a week, either from emails or from my blog. “Dr. Bob, what do you currently think is the Best MLM Business?” The answer is always the same.

It depends.

It All Comes Down To You

You can evaluate an MLM business based on many factors, such as the product line, the compensation plan, the leadership, company plans for expansion, and many others. But more importantly, it depends on YOU and how you “fit” with the business.

Let me explain.

To be successful in any business venture, including MLM you must love what you sell. This is not negotiable. It’s almost impossible to successfully market a product that you feel ambivalent about. If you aren’t 100% sold on your product as something that can truly help your customers, you have no business selling it in the first place and chances are very high you won’t have much success.

What might be the best MLM business for me could be the very worst MLM business for you. For example, I am really into financial education and products that help people get out of debt. I searched and found an MLM company that marketed these types of products and began my research. On the other hand, you may be a health nut and feel very strongly about the value of organic nutritional supplements. An MLM business that markets these types of products would be more suitable to you.

Now It’s Time To Do Your Homework

Once you’ve found a business that sells products that interest you, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and do your homework. You should evaluate the company’s compensation plan to be sure it is fair and equitable. You need to research the company leaders and be sure they’ve have a track record of success in the MLM industry.

Next, take a look at the training and support offered by the company. Here is another example of personal choice when it comes to the best MLM business. If a company primarily trains their members to market using traditional approaches like buying leads, making a list of family and friends, and holding home parties, but you are eager to learn how to market on the Internet, then this company may not be for you.

On the other hand, if the very thought of computers makes your blood run cold, than an MLM company whose training focuses on Internet Marketing would not be a very good fit for you.

The Bottom Line

There is no such thing as the “best” MLM company for everyone. You need to decide what’s important to you and then search for the company that most closely fits your needs. Once you’ve found the best MLM business for you, with products that you truly believe in and a company that you’ll be proud to represent, then your chance of success in MLM greatly improves.

If, however you choose a company based solely on media hype or some review you read on the Internet (usually done by someone pitching their own business), then it’s quite likely you’ll be yelling “scam” when you don’t get the results you desire.

What’s the Best MLM Business For Seniors?

…Let’s define BEST and Seniors. BEST first – definition: Most excellent, top, finest, greatest, unsurpassed, paramount, preeminent, superlative. WOW That’s a tough bill to fill.

Now Seniors – definition: Older, Higher, Higher Ranking, Superior, Leading, Chief, Major, Most Important (of course).

How to find the BEST MLM business for Seniors: Start by answering these questions: What are you interested in?

Do you LIKE to sell? What? Phone equipment/plans, Jewelry, Plastic-ware, Cleaning products, Nutritional products, Exercise programs/equipment, Water systems. Do you need a weight loss product? Do you like drinking shakes and dieting, taking fat burning pills, or something easier like just changing brands of something you are already using?

I could go on for two pages at least, but you get the idea. Just get on the Net and look up MLM businesses and keep clicking until you find something you LOVE. Next check out everything about the company and products to be SURE it isn’t just infatuation. Now… JOIN… OR… complete the process in the NEXT paragraph FIRST so you are SURE you’ll be comfortable with your choices. Remember not to get sidetracked by the “shining stars”. What I mean is, if you want people to join YOUR program pick a sponsor who is on the way up… not already at the top. If everyone goes with the Top Dogs, how will anyone new succeed?

Next (or first) is a little bit more difficult task: Find a coach or program you think you can work with. Someone or something that motivates you because you are going to need that motivation to do what is necessary to grow your MLM business. Go about this the same way you found your niche company. Get on the net. Now you can look up programs, trainers, coaches and you can even go to article directories like this one and check out authors who write about what you want to do. Many of them list their training sites if they have one. They even give you free training in their articles. Avoid the Top Dogs here, too.

While you are there, remember to leave a comment on the articles you’ve read. It doesn’t have to be much, even a “Thumbs-Up” will be appreciated. Most MLM on-line businesses will require you to do article writing to build up contacts for yourself, so treat others as you would like to be treated. And don’t let Article Writing scare you. There are PLENTY of programs to teach you to do that, too, if your coach doesn’t already have one built into his/her program. There are also people who can be hired for a song to do this for you.

Now you can sign up with the coach, trainer or program that suites you, and that you can afford. Follow their instructions to the letter. Stay Focused. Put as much time into it as you can manage; the rewards will come, but it does take work up front. Tackle one task at a time so you don’t become scattered. Stay on track!

Being a senior myself, I’m not too crazy about the idea of an MLM business that is BEST for Seniors (we don’t ALL want to sell rocking chairs do we?)! Because Seniors have more experience, patients (for the most part), money (well, maybe not these days), wisdom (you gotta give us that) and Moxie (when was the last time you tried to “put one over” on a senior?)!

Consequently, ANY MLM Business would fit because it isn’t the business, it’s the way it’s MARKETED. So more importantly, what is BEST for YOU? And THAT shouldn’t have anything to do with whether or not you are a Senior. Is there a BEST MLM Business for teenagers?

I’m not trying to get out of fulfilling my commitment of telling you which MLM business if Best for Seniors, but I think you can see: there is no ONE answer to that question… Other than: Everyone is different with different interests, so no matter what social structure you fit into YOU need to find the RIGHT MLM BUSINESS for YOU. As a Senior, you have more wisdom and insight than you did years ago, use them to answer the above questions and find the Right MLM Business for YOU no matter what your age!

Another point, of course, is Seniors may be even MORE suited to an MLM business than the youngsters out there. Providing you aren’t “stuck” in your ways. Seniors can be young in a lot more ways than one can imagine. Most of us look in the mirror and wonder who we are seeing because we don’t FEEL that old!

So an MLM business could be just the perfect set up to keep us Seniors Acting even younger; by giving us hope, excitement, anticipation, the chance to help others, and something to dream about again. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone more determined than a Motivated Senior! Now Start Looking!
