Network Marketing and Pyramids
For a person to actually
make money in a pyramid
scheme, someone else has
to lose money. But in
network marketing, each
person can multiply his
or her efforts, skills
and talents by helping
others be successful.
Network marketing has
proved itself as part of
the new economy and a

First, it's based on providing people with real, legitimate products they need and want at a fair price. While some people do make a lot of money through network marketing, their financial benefit is always the result of their own dedicated efforts in building an organization that sells real
products and/or services.
Network marketing isn't about taking advantage of your friends and relatives. Only a few years ago, network marketing meant retailing to, and sponsoring people from, your "warm list" of prospects. Although sharing the products or services and the opportunity with people
you know is still the basic foundation of the business, today we see more people using sophisticated marketing techniques such as the Internet, conference calling and other long-distance sponsoring techniques to extend their network across the country.
Network marketing isn't a get-rich-quick scheme. Of course some people do make large amounts of money very quickly. Many would say those people are lucky. But success in networking isn't based on luck. Success in network marketing is based on following some very basic yet dynamic principles.
Network marketing is a serious business for serious people. It's a proven system where the design, creation and expense the corporate team has gone through becomes a road map for your own success. Just follow the simple, proven and duplicable system that the
The real key is this: Network marketing is all about leverage. You can leverage your time and increase the number of hours of work effort on which you can be paid by sponsoring other people and earning a small income on their efforts. J. Paul Getty, who created one
of the world's greatest fortunes, said "I would rather make 1 percent on the efforts of 100 people than 100 percent on my own efforts." This very basic concept is the cornerstone of network marketing.
By helping the people you personally sponsor to sponsor others, you duplicate your efforts. As this process continues, you create compound growth that can lead to hundreds or even thousands of people coming into your business. You leverage your time by helping others be
successful and earn an income from all their efforts.
With network marketing, there are no big capital requirements, no geographical limitations, no minimum quotas required and no special education or skills needed. Network marketing is a low-overhead, home based business that can actually offer many of the tax
advantages associated with owning your own business. Network marketing is a people-to-people business that can significantly expand your circle of friends. It's a business that enables you to travel and have fun as well as enjoy the lifestyle that extra income can provide.
Network marketing is a legal, ethical manner of doing business. In MLM, you are a legitimate seller of a product or service and business opportunity. As a multi-level marketer, you can set your own hours and earn money based on your efforts and ability to sell consumer products or services supplied to you by an established multi-level marketing company. The multi-level company will also encourage you to build and manage your own sales force by recruiting, motivating, and
training others to sell the products or services.
