If you are an entrepreneur or operate an online business, you have heard of MLM. Multi-level marketing business/Homed Based business is probably the most promoted style of home based business. The idea is to start selling the products of a particular MLM and then recruit other sales people to do the same under you and to reciprocate the action over and over. Over a period of time, on paper, you should be able to build a downline which would provide you with a great residual income. Question is does it really work?
The principle of MLM is quite simple. You decide you want to start selling this company particular products because they are so healthy and you think everyone should have them. So you start promoting the business and start to earn a commission. Typically, commissions are $2 to $10 per sale. Next, you realize that in order to make a lot of money, you have to start recruiting other people to do the same as you. This would build you a downline so you can earn a commission of their sales as well. Each of the people realizes that they need to do the same to make money so they go off find people to build their own downline. After a while, you are reaping all the benefits from everyone in your downline. In a sense, it almost like free money.
The Drawback of MLM
Let’s say your best seller decide that he could make even more money if he/she was even higher on the food chain of your downline. So he/she decides to find another MLM opportunity where they could be at the top. Once they find it, they go recruit everyone in your downline and bring as many as they can using the same thought process and they explaining to them that they would be higher on the chain and therefore would make more money. That leaves your entire downline empty and you to rebuild it again.
That is not the worst; let’s say your former top salesperson joined a similar MLM who sells similar products. Now you have more competition. Another big drawback is the compensation plan. Not only you have to sell a lot of products to be successful. $2-$10 commission per item average, so to make $5,000 a month, which means in the best case scenario, you would have to make 500 sales per month.
Other mishap that can happen is: Let’s say you joined a well known MLM about 6 months ago. During those 6 months, you worked hard to start and build your business. You are now making anywhere from $300-$500 a month from your business. The MLM business you are with, decides to change the commission program. Someone, in your up line (above you in the food chain) does not like the changes so he/she decides to move on with another MLM company and with the click of a mouse; he/she takes most of your downline using the same technique as your best salesperson did earlier. Again, you are left rebuilding your downline.
