|It is a rare person over the age of 30 that has NOT been approached by someone selling a MLM product as a “great business opportunity” that sounds so good. But before you know it your friend or family member is trying to sell you the whole company as well. So you give in and notice your own friends and family start to hide whenever you are less than a mile away. Finally many have learned how to USE MLM’s instead of letting them use us! Check out these secrets, and simple ideas and be ready the next time someone approaches you about their world-changing product, life empowering company, or THE only way to make a million dollars by tomorrow…. here goes;
1. REMAIN DETACHED…Listen, be observant, but MAKE NO DECISION in front of them…take time away from the person, or people, or party, or conference, seminar, etc. to determine if you even like their product or service.
2. Once you decide you do like the concept or the product, TRY THE PRODUCT.
3. If you like it, decide how you want to use the product. There are basically two choices, even though the sales friend/person who introduced you may think there is only one way to approach the business, remember it is their way…and that is okay, for them.
4. Here are the next two options;
A. Sell the products and company as a new, part-time job. Treat this as a real job, not a way to get rich quick. There is no such thing. This is work, be professional and pay your dues! Set goals, attend the conferences and trainings, learn sales and love the products, but respect family and friends and leave them alone! Let them approach you. (We suggest you don’t even tell extended family members, until you are making a nice income….) Look for what to look for in an MLM in our ARTICLE in the Green Up! Company section of our website titled: “Three Secrets to MLM’s for Both the Consumer and Sales”.
B. Be the Dedicated Consumer, or occasional discount buyer …This is how to USE the MLM company;
How to Buy Wholesale through any MLM Company;
1. Sign up as a “Distributor”…this will enable you to buy their products at wholesale.
2. If the product is consumed regularly, then go ahead and sign up under the AUTOSHIP program and add it to the food bill …otherwise, skip that option. Do not think you HAVE to do this!!! (For most MLM’s they *require this to receive a check for those who want to receive a check on volume.) This option is nice to use if the product will be needed each month, such as the InnerLight SuperGreens or other consumable products.
3. That’s it! Most sign up fees vary from Free to $60.00. (Innerlight Inc. sends a pH Miracle book, video, CD and water bottle, in addition to the forms for the $34.95 sign up fee.) Make sure and Copy the forms for your future orders and keep it in a file for your use.
4. To sign up: Use the Virtual Websites for easy sign up, on your own time, after you have made your decision. This way there is no pressure to become part of any Sales Team…unless YOU decide to make this a part-time business. A good MLM company can be good part-time businesses, IF you choose the right company and products. Again, look at ARTICLES for the “Three Secrets to MLM’s…” for tips from long-time and very successful MLM millionaires…these now rich people DO exist, we “picked their brains” and shared some of their best helps in the Three Secrets articles….
5. Enjoy your products! MLM’s typically have better quality products, it’s the only way they can last for 5 to 70 years. Most of all, like the products yourself and USE these companies and buy your excellent products wholesale….it is the only way!
The best of luck to you! Trust your gut instincts, buy wholesale, and USE these MLM companies from now on! And for those who want an instant sales training team, conventions and social life in business, these may be the way to go.
