What is network marketing?

When people first hear the words “network marketing” or “MLM” – the first question in their minds is, “What do you mean?”
Network marketing is simply:”Recommending and promoting what you like.”
Everyone already does network marketing.
We all recommend and promote things to our friends and acquaintances. This is part of the human experience. We naturally want to share our favorite resources, products, music and ideas.
Here is a quick example.
You see an ad in the paper for a new restaurant opening. You go, have a great meal, and then you tell your friends how wonderful the food was.
That was network marketing.
Now, the restaurant owner appreciated all of your word-of-mouth advertising. He would like to reward you, but he has already spent his entire marketing budget on advertising. So, when you return to his restaurant, he gives you a bottle of wine with your next meal as a “thank you” for bringing more customers to his restaurant.
Yes, we recommend movies, books, baby sitters, dentists, cars and more. We all do network marketing every day, however … some people actually get paid for it.
Want to get paid for what you are already doing?Consider this. Many companies believe that the word-of-mouth recommendation and promotion of their products and services is more effective than money spent on advertising. Here is what they do.
They stop their traditional advertising and marketing.These companies then use these unspent advertising and marketing monies to reward people who recommend and promote their products and services.So if you like the products and services of one of these companies, don’t change what you are doing. Simply continue recommending and promoting, and let these companies send you cash every month.There are two types of people in the world:
* Those that recommend and promote the things they like, and
* Those that get paid for it.

Best Resources for MLM / Network Marketing
Now assuming that you got basic idea about Network Marketing, let me take you through the awesome videos given on Top of the page.
- Parable of Pipeline: Even when people understand ‘what is Network Marketing’ they miss the point ‘why Network Marketing’. This animated video beautifully explains the concept of residual income. No matter which profession you are in or how much you earn, if your income stops when you stop working, then you can never be financially free. But in Network Marketing, anyone can build a business with 5-10 years of consistent part-time/full-time effort, that can keep producing income forever even when the person stop working daily.
