Finally, India has a clear guideline for Direct Selling / Network Marketing / Multi-level Marketing (MLM) industry! With the announcement of Direct Selling Guidelines 2016 on 12th September 2016; legitimate Direct Selling companies are rejoicing & scams are in trouble. A new chapter indeed!
It has been indeed a pleasure to work with one of India’s starting Network Marketing company and having joined it at an age as early as 17! It has been an incredible ride as I went on from a shy, introvert, novice to develop a network of tens of thousands of people across the country. And, today as I sit here to narrate this to you, I believe I have a RIGHT to share with you how to build a huge network out of my actions, mistakes & achievements!
Yes there are exactly 2 Secrets of Network Marketing Success. You are very fortunate if your uplines tell you these in early days of Network Marketing career. You are still fortunate if you somehow figure these out after wasting many years (like me). But most unfortunate are those who joined Network Marketing & then gave up after sometimes saying “This thing doesn’t work/ I can’t do it” never knowing about these 2 secrets. And trust me these 2 secrets are nothing extraordinary-alien-technology-reserved-for-specific-people, these 2 are very simple common sense guidelines that every single person can follow & succeed in Network Marketing.
Yesterday when I read that Amway India CEO was again arrested, I couldn’t postpone writing about it anymore. Until and unless Indian people become aware of the truths about this industry, even legitimate Direct Selling companies and their distributors will keep facing legal problems. And that’s bad news for common people. Oh! By the way I am not associated with Amway in any way, never has been. But I am with this industry for last 7+ years, as a distributor and also as an industry advocate and educator. And the way this industry has impacted my life, I feel it as my obligation to stand beside any legitimate company in this industry, in such troubling time.
No get-rich-quick-formula. If you are looking for that, you are at wrong place buddy. If you know what Network Marketing is, you surely know that common people CAN make really big money in it (atleast that’s what you are told). But then why most people DON’T make big money (or even any money) in this business? Because most people never try to find out the right way of doing this business. And also because most people consider it as a lottery ticket, which it isn’t. And there are lots of crap advice around. From people in your Network Marketing company who made a lot of money, but in a way you can’t duplicate, to bullshit sidebar advertisement on Facebook “No calling. No rejection. Sit at home & make money with our XYZ MLM lead generation system”. If you are really willing to make it big in Network Marketing industry, skip the crap & listen to the advice of the experts. Watch this video from one of the leading experts of our profession Randy Gage.
If you are reading this post, 99.99% probability is either you don’t know about Network Marketing or you think you know about Network Marketing. No offense but I’ve met very few people who actually know what Network Marketing industry really is. If you know nothing and willing to learn, nice. But if you think you know everything, please think again. How did you come to know about it?
If you have seen the previous video, you know that Network Marketing legend Richard Bliss Brooke took an interesting initiative. He is interviewing random people on the street and asking about what they know about Network Marketing or even they have ever heard about it. The answers are funny, interesting and also eye opening for all Network Marketing distributor. Watch the video & also read the original article for the lessons.
