MLM – a way out for those wanting to make a change in their lives

There was a time when admitting to being an insurance salesman was a little shameful. This was despite the fact that insurance products were complicated and a very important  part of a person’s financial life. The industry has sort of rebranded and now insurance agents are better accepted as Financial Planners and such. There is also more regulation in the appointment of insurance agents etc. 

Not so for MLM. 

There is so much negative stuff written about MLM that most MLM’ers prefer not to admit their participation in the industry. I am quite surprised.  

I think that MLM is one of the best distribution and marketing channels any company can think of.  If not the best.  

Every business needs:

- to sell a product or service for which there is compelling demand and at a price that is competitive,   

- a set up to produce or make the product or the service, 

- a set up to distribute and deliver the product or service, 

- a set up to coordinate all these. 

These days there are many variations to all these, outsourcing, insourcing, internet marketing etc. MLM is just one of the ways to handle the task of distribution and delivery.  

So how did the MLM industry get tainted with such a bad image? I suppose it may because of some of those ne’re do wells who used the powerful MLM marketing/delivery system for their own shady intentions and along the way fleeced the distributors who had signed up. 

Well, these ne’re do wells and serial conmen exist in every industry and in almost all Governments. We don’t have to brand every MLM company as a con job just because of some previous bad experience or experiences.  

We are now living in dangerous and highly uncertain economic times. Whilst all of us should tighten our belts, we should not ignore the other side of the equation of increasing our income.  

And one way, say what you will, is MLM. 

And no matter what company you work for or own, if there is no compelling product or service to sell at a competitive price, that company is doomed anyway.  So if you are looking for a change in your fortunes, please add MLM to your list of options. But remember to do your homework well. After all, you are about to embark on your very own small business, that does not have many of the disadvantages of traditional small businesses.
