Traditional Business vs. Network Marketing Business

There are a lot of misconceptions about Network Marketing for the previous years which hindered or stopped starting or newbie network marketers and once it gets to them or their potential prospects, they tend to stop believing about the potential or possibilities of high income potential in this business. One of those misconceptions is that traditional business is still superior when it comes to its earning potential.

I was invited to join a distribution and selling of a particular fruit which is kinda rare and would sell like hot cake. The profit distribution is 50-50 after all expenses. That sounded like fun when I first thought about it then the distribution of work.. Essentially, most of the leg work will be worked on by me so, I began to think through the series of different work I’ll need to do in order to get a good income there. It appeared that I’ll be owning a small store which need much supervision and other government work-related activities which are not directly related to earning an income. Warehousing, training people for sales, registering to government entities, logistics, overhead, marketing and sales are the many things I’d need to do or oversee. After much thought, it dawned on me that the income that can be generated there would be linear and there’s not much to scale up to unless we go to other region or allow for some sort of franchising.

Network Marketing on the other hand allows one to purchase products or services then after that you get all the warehousing and other business-related and needed activities done for free.. The only things that are left out are marketing and training distributors. When one franchises a business, the franchisor trains the employees of the franchisee so that they can become successful. When I saw the big difference, I needed to turn down the traditional biz since I would be giving a lot of time on it with a little to show for it. There’s also a limited leverage in a traditional business and I would need to closely guard my secrets there. In a networking business, sharing my secrets and other ideas is the only way to be successful – helping my team would be the only logical way to get to the top.

If anyone would want to build a successful traditional business in the future, I would suggest that you join a network marketing business first since the risk and capital required is lower. But I doubt you will turn to a traditional business after “tasting” the success you will have in network marketing.

To your MLM success,

  1. You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation but I to find this matter to be actually
    one thing that I think I’d by no means understand. It seems too complex
    and very huge for me. I am taking a look forward for your subsequent post, I will attempt to
    get the grasp of it!


  2. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post,
    I will try to get the hang of it!

    1. It is quite difficult to start a blog but if u have the patience and the skill to learn the basics, it’s easy. I suggest that you start with a free blog host like wordpress and just pay for domain name and mapping. The thing that you must focus is the content of your blog.
