4 Ways to Choose the Best Network Marketing Company to Join
Many people set out on the whole ‘new year, new me’ mindset, right? And as we saw 2020 come to a close and 2021 open, people often find themselves evaluating where they are now and where they want to be. This can raise questions related to their current opportunity or even someone looking at network marketing for the first time. And, how do you decide the best network marketing company to join?
I want to share with you some key things I suggest people look at when choosing a network marketing company. Deciding where the go-to company is — or, if that even exists.
The Best Network Marketing to Join in 2021 is …
OK, hang on …
Let me speak to the current network marketing professional for a moment…
Maybe you hoped for some more success in 2020 and you felt it fell a little short. Guess what? That’s OK!
This post should help you rekindle that passion or if you’re unhappy, at least consider some options.
And, if you are brand new looking at the profession and wanting to make a decision – I’m sorry I don’t have a magical company name to tell you. However what I do have for you are the key things you should look at in making your decision.
I firmly believe that there are hundreds of incredible companies out there for people.
Whether it sounds off-the-wall or not, there are still people joining companies like Amway, Mary Kay and Avon (little mind-blown?)
So, this just goes to show you that you can’t count anyone out!
Unfortunately, there are thousands of people everyday who sign up for a network marketing opportunity and know very little about it. What we hope, is that what we’re about to share with you will help you or someone you know, make an informed decision for this brand new year.
4 Ways to Choose the Best Network Marketing Company to Join
The following 4 ways are not listed in any order of importance and ideally the more ways you can have when making your decision – the better. So there are 2 ways to look at this list;
- You are already in the profession and are evaluating your 2021 goals moving forward or,
- This is your first look (seriously) at getting involved in the industry and you are seeking some guidance.
(I should add — if either apply to you and you would love some extra support and guidance, please don’t hesitate to connect with me)
Top to Bottom Leadership
First, I get it … many people join a good friend or a family member when they get started. And there is nothing wrong with that, at all. However, what people should keep in mind is if their sponsor doesn’t possess a whole ton of experience (yet), who can you lean on?
After all, this is a business knowing who you can count on matters, right? This includes, at a corporate level too. Take a look at the CEO and his or her executive teams. What has their experience been like in the industry or simply business as a whole?
What does their reputation say about them?
Who are your field leaders? Do they support the way you intend on building your business? Be that an online, offline or hybrid approach? We have seen a ton of resistance from companies over the years in relation to building a business on social media. So, if your intention is to build your business online, knowing early on if the business model supports that, in my opinion, is critical.
Love the Products?
If you were/are a customer of the products you are already ahead of the game. Some of our best distributors when we were actively building our network marketing company were originally customers. It only makes sense right?
This will not change in 2021. In fact, we’re seeing customers becoming a primary focus (FINALLY) in this industry.
If for whatever reason you find yourself no longer supporting the products or even being a consumer of them it’s hard to share their benefits with others authentically.
Don’t lose sight of that.
Somewhere people can fall into the financial benefits of the industry solely, and we lose its true meaning.
So, if you’ve fallen out of touch with your products – no big deal, get reacquainted. Deciding which is the best network marketing company to join is likely one where you already support the products or services.
What’s Unique? Is there a Genuine Need?
If you have been around the industry a little while, you might agree with me that we have seen every imaginable product find its way to direct sales at one time or another. We’ve seen insurance packages to wine subscription boxes, skin care to feminine products, pet care to jewellery.
There is literally a company out there for everything.
And although this sounds kind of cool, is it? If the promise of the industry stays true, that people can purchase products for less than in the store; then there could be a great business model there.
Ideally, you are working with or looking at a company to join that fills a unique need or want. A little market research can go along way here. So, take the time to do a few quick searches on what your competition looks like and, how you can stay ahead of it.
Chances are your potential customers or prospects will want to know these answers to, this way you’re ahead of the curve.
How much Fun will you have?
This way of deciding which network marketing company to join may just be a slight edge in front of the others. Here’s why; happy people are committed people. We can look at this from 2 angles;
- A happy customer is a loyal one and,
- A happy distributor is a loyal one too!
Network marketing can be one of the easiest businesses to get started in. However, it can also be one of the toughest to stay motivated in. The primary reason for this is because you can start to feel like you’re trying everything and nothing is working.
Here’s the deal, there will be many challenging moments.
And, if you are not having fun in your business what is going to keep you there? I’ve spoken about this before and it will still ring true throughout 2021 and that is; many people who get started in the industry is do it for the social side of things. They are craving that inclusive culture where they can have fun and make some income along the way. I think you will also agree this is especially true after the 2020 we all just experienced.
Having fun in your business, your team, your events, and so on — matters a lot more than you might think.
To some degree this is why we put so much emphasis on the relationships we build within our organizations.
We want people to feel good.
We want our teams to have fun.
So sure, you may have the most incredible products and a wow factor compensation plan but if you’re not having fun, how long with those things keep you grinding it out?
Especially on the days you don’t feel like it!
The top 4 things I believe you should be looking at as we open 2021 are;
- Genuine Need
