One MLM Or Two?
By: Michael Brymer
What do you do when a friend tries to get you into their MLM? Do you refuse?
I don't refuse because I may want to do that MLM also, or at least give it a run with a certain group of people to see how it goes.
I may join because I want to do business with that person in the future. Especially with people that have a large list of MLMers that are offline or who know people who have such lists. In Japan it's called "Giri Ninjyo". A bit like giving chocolates to the boss on Valentines day. Even though there is no love involved the thought is there.
Sometimes I'll join a friendís MLM if I want the products. Products are normally cheaper that way. Then if I like one of the products I may promote it to product orientated groups or companies that can promote it within their cliental without breaking the MLM rules.
I ask for a downline if I can't see advantages in joining the new MLM. This way the products are free and if the group moves then I'll train and increase the group. If the pay plan is a binary then the request will be to have people on both left and right legs to put me in profit from the start.
The idea is not to have someone give me a big downline, just enough to cover the monthly costs of joining their MLM. The benefit for them is that they will have someone who knows a lot of big players with big lists plus someone who can train that group.
Perhaps this all gets back to whether a person should stick with just one MLM or not. I just happen to be a person who likes to put their eggs in more than one basket if it happens to suit me. I have my main MLM (a binary) but my job is sometimes to "Fit the MLM to the person and not the person to the MLM" so it's advantageous to have more than one screw driver in the tool box.
My main MLM has online tools for online MLMers, but this will not cover my neighbors weight problem or excite a person with a huge offline list of prospects. So I'm always open to listening to MLM presentations from friends and if I can help them and me, a win win situation, then I'll join their MLM.
If it's not a win win situation then I give them real reasons, ones that they can fix if they really want me.
Some people treat their MLM like a religion, one thought, one God etc or a place just to make friends. Thatís fine !?
I like to treat MLM like a business.
