We tried Network Marketing, when we were in our twenties, and for us, it wasn’t right for us. At first, it looked like a good opportunity, but the more we got into it, the more we disliked it.
I’m not going to go into the details of the company we tried, but it honestly felt more like a religious cult, than a chance to become an entrepreneur. All we wanted to do is run our own business selling real products. But they just solely focused on recruitment, and selling the dream of changing their life.
We also found it almost impossible to make money, and we couldn’t afford to keep spending to stay “qualified”.
The reason was, in order to be successful, we were told to contact everyone we knew and start conversations with random people, all with a hidden agenda of recruiting these people into our team.
Don’t get me wrong, there were certain aspects we enjoyed and we learned some good stuff that helps us now with our current businesses.
But I personally just wanted to sell products that people would find useful or actually wanted, without facing constant rejection. And without attempting to convince people to join an “opportunity” we weren’t even making money with ourselves.
How can you convince people to join, when they ask “how much are you making?” It just didn’t feel right.
We gave it up, and went back to focusing on our day jobs. But I still wanted to create a passive income, and spend more time with the family, so I did keep on looking for an opportunity.
Fast forward to 2016, and I started learning Affiliate Marketing…
And we’re so glad we did. Because for us, it was completely more suited to us. Now we earn commissions selling products people are already buying online, we don’t have to recruit anyone, and we let our websites do the talking, meaning we don’t need to speak to our family or friends, or anyone for that matter to sell these products.
I have people coming to our sites and buying stuff through my links everyday, without ever having to speak to them. I also feel really good about what we do, as we are helping people with their decisions and not hard selling things to people. These people are already interested in the product, they just want some help deciding on whether it is the right product for them, and we help them with that as part of our website.
It’s paid off top, thanks to the training in our top recommended training we are earning a 4-Figure Monthly Passive Income Stream.
That’s our journey though, and that doesn’t mean it’s the right path for you. There are those that love Network Marketing, and they also utilise internet marketing to help grow their business with it too.
It totally depends on picking the right network marketing business for you, and then how driven are you to making it work for you…
