Network marketing can make you as much or as little as you want to earn. If you put a lot of time and effort into it then you can make good money. Network marketing is a legitimate way to deliver goods from the manufacturer to the customer, whilst missing out the online or physical shop that normally comes in between.
How to do Network Marketing Online
People who become network marketers set up business and recruit other people who also want to become distributors. For every person you recruit who successfully makes sales, you get a commission. The bigger your team, the more money you’ll make. Usually, the company you decide to work with will sort out all the necessary paperwork and any legalities if it’s necessary. Some companies will also provide training, which means you don’t need to worry if you haven’t had any previous sales or marketing experience. You will, however, have to make a small investment for your products. Some companies will ask for between £150 and £200 but others are much lower and you can find some who only require an investment of around £50.
The work is suitable for anyone who needs flexibility. You can work a few hours or put your whole heart and soul into it, it is up to you. Once you’ve set up your business you then will need to rely on, at the beginning anyway, word of mouth to create interest. You can begin with family and friends and then spread out to neighbours or members of any clubs you belong to. As word spreads, so will your popularity and you can then begin to recruit a team to help you. Don’t be put off by rumours that network marketing is really a pyramid scheme in disguise. It’s not. Pyramid schemes are mostly always about money and they are not legitimate. Network marketing works because you are supplying genuine products and your team are helping each other.
If you need to be persuaded just look at Avon. Yes, Avon is a network marketing company which has thousands of distributors all over the world earning very good money from selling Avon products. You don’t even need much money to start. They charge you an admin fee of £16 which is only payable after you place your first order and is split between your first campaign and your second.
Can Network Marketing Make You Rich?

What to Look for When Choosing a Company
Firstly, make sure they have a friendly, approachable attitude and that they provide you with training and someone you can contact for help or advice if you need it; especially in the early stages of selling. Make sure they are established. Start-ups may not be a good idea if you want to invest because you are going into uncharted territory.
Next, check out the product. Are people buying it and does it have a good reputation? Do you believe in it because you need to if you’re going to sell it successfully? Have a look at feedback from customers and any comments sellers make.
If you want to be able to sponsor an unlimited amount of people, make sure your company won’t limit this. If they do, it will mean less income for you.
