Review on Network Marketing

A lot of people have tried network marketing and the majority of people who have tried it over the years didn't have much success. At the same time, those who do succeed end up making their financial dreams a reality. So, what is it exactly that separates those who succeed from those who fail?

The truth is that network marketing is not a business model for everyone. With that being said, it does not matter how much skill or education you have when it comes to making your network marketing business a success. You don't have to be smart or sales savvy to succeed in this business. You just have to want it bad enough and be willing to learn what blueprints work.

In addition to learning a success blueprint, a person must be willing to implement what he or she has learned and this is where most people fall short. Almost every network marketing opportunity out there has a blueprint to follow. The problem is that most people who are starting a network marketing business do so in addition to a job. This means their business building efforts usually get put on the back burner.

People will often try something and if it does not work right away the way they expected, they give up. This is what usually happens in network marketing.

Think about this though.

If you work your business consistently for a year or two, it will usually end up being more income than your full time job and if you keep at it, network marketing can make you rich. What baffles my mind is that people are more than willing to work at a job where they are helping someone else rake in the cash, but not willing to sacrifice a little bit of their spare time to learn how to succeed in network marketing.

This is a business model that does work and regardless of what you may be thinking, it is not a scam. I am able to make money in every opportunity I join because I follow multiple success blueprints. There is no need to reinvent the wheel. Just follow what other successful people are doing.

I think the major problem with anything like network marketing or any system that requires some activity, is that people don't understand they have to be active.

Lots of people join things expecting the money to come to them without doing anything at all - if that worked we would all be doing it. Then when they haven't put any effort in and don't get anything back they start screaming scam and foul play.

For those that don't live in cloud cuckoo land and who are willing to get off their backsides and put some effort in, almost anything can be lucrative including network marketing.

Very well said Paul... Anything worth while in life most definitely takes effort. You don't even have to be really good at what you do now days to be successful, especially if you are following a proven blueprint. The point is to be doing something all the time. The more people do, the better they get at what they are doing, especially if they don't give up after doing it just a couple of times. Thanks for the comment... Great response!

You know, with the economy the way it is, so many people are trying to earn money any and every way they can. Someone in one of my downline is so discouraged with a website we're both working. I feel sorry for her. All I can do is continue to encourage her because we are both in the same boat. I'm trying to get her to keep paddling.

Hey Brenda, if you don't mind me asking, what is the website that you are working on? Maybe I can throw you some advice. Your right also - Keep doing what your doing and eventually it will pay off for you. We all have to earn this. Once you get it, your life will be so much easier than you ever imagined. When I started out, I had to work on my business in addition to a job just like everyone else. As a matter of fact, it took me two years before I ever made any real money online. Now I can work when I want and the truth is, I never really have to work again if I don't want to. I must add God willing to the last sentence because none of us know what is going to happen tomorrow, but you get the point.

The site I run, MatesGate, is a social network that shares 90% of its revenue with its members and we have paid to chat, paid to play games and even a paid to watch internet TV section. On top of those, we have plenty of other ways to make money for the members too.

What I find is that the site and its off-shoot programs are under used by the vast majority of the members. For example, we have our Advertising Referral Program where members can put two banners in our advertising system for just $1 a month - these can be for anything they want (within reason) and they can also earn by referring people to the system. Out of our nearly 2400 members as I write, less than fifty have taken up this option.

Now, if I could get unlimited banner impressions to lots of people every month for $1 AND make money from the system, I would be jumping for joy and would take it up without hesitation but I don't get why others don't!

A lot of people come on board the platform with the mindset of making quick money, and when that doesn't happen, they quit. Like Paul has pointed out, it's all about activity. People should start treating it as a business and not something to pass time with.
