The Truth Behind Multi Level Marketing...
Hi friends! If you have been a supporter of my business, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. If you are a skeptic, that's okay. If you are a hater, I hope you will take the time to look at things from my lens. Multi level marketing is defined as a strategy that some direct sales companies use to encourage existing distributors to recruit new distributors. In a reputable multi level marketing company, I would make commission on each sale I make, and would make a very small amount of profit on my recruits. I ask you, why does society think that is so bad? I have put in the work to get to know someone and build a connection. I have checked in on them, and I have shown them why my company has a great, flexible lifestyle to offer them, if they put in the work.
A pyramid scheme is defined as a business model that recruits members via a promise of payments or services for enrolling others into the scheme, rather than supplying investments or sale of products. I make nothing in my company for a recruit solely signing up to sell. I must invest my time into them, teach them my business model, show them how to work with social media, empower and support them for any tangible money to come from recruiting.
I spend my days at a day job, but my nights are not much different. I slave over my computer coming up with graphics, taping up and shipping out samples, responding to emails, forming collaborations, making posts, doing workouts for reels, writing blog posts. My job does not end when I come home at 5 PM. I am doing work until 10 PM each night, to help you as a client, see how safer, non toxic skin care; can benefit your life. How has that become a crime in society? I am building a reputable business that will help support my career and that should be applauded not shunned.
There are companies out there that require representatives to hit a minimum amount of sales in order to get paid any profit. There are also companies that require consultants to buy a personal minimum before getting started. These are the companies we should jointly be educating the public about. These are the companies that are sketchy. However, my company sets us up for success, and it is up to us to use our brains, to decide how to become the best at what we do. For example, when I started, I spent about $300 this included the $105 set that I was already going to buy before becoming a consultant. A $72 set of bath essentials that I used, and samples to send to already interested participants. I know that $300 is a significant amount of money, but I have also run the statistics on what I must sell using the products I have received, and the samples I will send out, in order to make that money an investment; and not a dip into my savings. When given a big commission per sale, making back $300 is quite simple and I believe before even sending samples out I have made about ⅓ back. Yes, multi level marketing can be bad. If you are a shopaholic, that has no understanding of budgeting and business, your startup costs will probably be very high; and the payoff could take a ton of time. However, if you are strategic and have a basic understanding of how finance works, you could make a great deal of money. Most importantly, you can be at the forefront of helping women across the globe find the truth behind their skincare and self care products. Shop local, shop safe, shop non toxic, and shop multi level marketing if it is a company that you can stand behind and love!
