Here’s what should you look for in a company.
At the top of the list should be the quality of the Products and Service the company offers.
• Exciting. If you’re personally excited by the results of the products and use them yourself, your enthusiasm will be your best sales asset.
• High quality. Your long-term residual income is based on the product’s ability to deliver on its promise and maintain customer loyalty. You’ll never have to make an apology for a high-quality product.
• Fairly priced. Network Marketing products don’t usually win as the low-cost provider. However, high quality doesn’t necessarily mean overpriced. Make sure you or your customers are comparing apples to apples when price-shopping the competition.
• Lifecycle. Make sure you have products with the viability of the growing market and demand Globally!
• Exclusivity. Be cautious if it’s available through other channels of distribution such as retail stores, catalogues or other outlet retailers.
• Satisfaction Guarantee. A company must stand behind its products 100% if it doesn’t stand behind its product that will surely leave you embarrassed or potentially responsible to your customers.
• Sales aids. Make sure the company has the HIGHEST Quality of promotional literature that adequately directions of business support to you in building your network.
Once you’ve found a Company with products and service you can believe in evaluate the company based on your personal needs and beliefs. Here’s what to look for:
• Support materials. Company literature should be easily understandable and provide a professional image to support your business activities.
• Policies and procedures “do’s and don’ts”. Read and understand what you can and can’t do. These internal distributor regulations are designed to protect the integrity of the business and deal with any renegade distributor who can ruin things for everyone. If the company offers no policy documents, heed this as a red flag. This company either hasn’t had good Network Marketing legal advice or doesn’t plan to stick around very long.
• Corporate executives. They should be committed to the HIGHEST quality and integrity, and have genuine concern for their distributors. Interview them if possible, or at least talk to other successful distributors for their thoughts.
• Does one or more have experience in Network Marketing?
• Are experts involved in areas of administration, financial management, distribution and commissioning software?
• Has the company hired professional consultants to help in areas of Business?
• History. How long has the company been in business? How many countries does it operate in? How many distributors does it have? What are its gross yearly sales? Is it well-funded? If it’s privately held, is it operating on the Stock exchange, this information might not be readily available, but it’s worth a try.
• Compensation plan. Does it sound realistic in its promises? Was it designed by competent experienced Network Marketing experts? Does it fit your needs for part-time income or a full-time career opportunity? Does the plan use time-tested and proven success concepts, or are you part of an experimental program? Look for proof of success of their concept. Have your sponsor or a company official explain it to you in detail. Making sure you get a solid presentation of their information before you join.
• Philosophy. Does it fit your value system or style and make you feel comfortable and proud to be part of the organization?
• Sales and training. Does the company and Up-line offer regular support sessions by telephone and online training?
• Commission software provider. Does your company provide the software that will determine your success?
• Communication. Look for good to GREAT communication in the form of newsletters, voice-mail capabilities, national conference calls and a strong Web presence using all available communication technologies.
• Protection. The only required investment should be a no commission able starter kit and products for personal use. All other investments should be optional. Beware of large inventory load enticements or offers to buy positions. In case things don’t work out for you, make sure that the company will stand behind you with a proper return policy.
One important thing to keep in mind –
Even if you’re inexperienced choosing the right Up-line sponsor to support you can be equally important. Is there someone in your a mediate Up-line who will work with you who has had substantial success and can show you the way? This can be your shortcut to accelerated growth and my strongest recommendation for gaining early momentum.
To YOUR All-Star Success!
