The Big Question in an MLM Business
This is a business. And like all the businesses worldwide, products and services are the ones are purchased. There’s no difference.
It’s simple, really.
Now, the question remains, how are those products purchased? That’s what you’re really asking, am I right?
When you say ‘sell’, most people have an image of an ‘oily used car salesman’ conjured up in their minds. You have seen those types, right? Or another type of salesman that seems to be lowballing you all the time. “Hey, this product is great and it’s only worth $3!” type of guy. These types of selling techniques have been used for centuries and might even date back to the middle ages.
How MLM Businesses Actually Work
Let me ask you, “Have you seen the latest season of ‘House of Cards’ on Netflix? You should.”
Do you notice anything about this type of question? It’s just a normal question you’d probably ask your best friend, your girlfriend, your spouse, or anyone else. Plain and simple.
And now tell me, did I just sell you a subscription to Netflix? Did I sell you on the idea of watching ‘House of Cards’? Maybe. But in all reality, I was just asking you a simple question. Maybe because I’m a huge fan of House of Cards and I was wondering if you had the chance to see it.
Did I use low-brow, obsolete, or any slimy selling tactics to do so? No, I just shared or made a recommendation to you — that’s all.
When you find something good, you naturally want to share it with other people. It’s the same in your own MLM business. There are some unique and high-quality products, in network marketing — ones you won’t find in stores. Helping people learn about them and give access to them can improve their lives.
That’s what you’re really doing in your business — you’re bringing value to the marketplace.
Yes, you can do that without the slimy sales tactics.
So the answer to the question is, yes, you need to have products purchased to make profits.
And, no, you don’t need to use hard selling techniques to make it happen.
P.S. Consider making a video demonstration of a product that you really like and sharing it on YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. If it’s really useful and provides value to your audience — it’ll get shared.
