How to know if your MLM is being fair

Here are some of the dirty tricks that some Multi-level-marketing companies will try:

Stealing your commissions.

Some companies will pass your commission down to your downline if they make a higher commission rate on a given month than you do. If you are with a company  that has a commission structure set up like this, your downline can come in and sweep up your commissions….nice reward for training them, eh?

Carrot and stick motivation tactics

A lot of Multi-level-marketing companies will set the minimum amount of sales you need to make just higher than what most people usually sell in their company. Yes, these Mulit-level-marketing companies know what the average person in their company sells, and they use that figure to determine what  minimum amount of sales you must make in order to  qualifying  for a larger commission bracket….so that you never sell enough to actually make any real  commission.

Failing to mail you your commissions

Mlmer, do you take the time to calculate what your commissions are? Do you really do the math each month? Many of you don’t, which is exactly what many MLM companies expect you to neglect. Don’t think they’d do this? Just ask around (though, ahem, I’m sure YOUR company would NEver do that!)

Going out of Business

Sadly, many MLM companies never get off the ground, so to speak. Once they do gain momentum, they may be only a few lawsuits away from losing it all. This is very concerning, as many MLMs provide the best profit potential to the very newest arrivals. It’s a delicate balance choosing a company that is new enough to be profitable, tempered with the age it takes to be solid. What do I mean exactly? Well, many MLMs are structured so that those who get on board first get the highest commissions. In other words, often if you join an MLM that is saturated, you won’t make as much profit as if you’d signed on early in its history.

The long and short of it is, many MLMers jump from one opportunity to the next newest one, hoping to make a profit, or to leave a burning ship before it sinks.

Conclusion:

Joining an MLM in the infancy of its formation can be very lucrative, if you do your homework and find that the company appears to be solvent.

How to Make Money at MLM

Get leads

Get leads

Get leads

Get sales training

Make your list of people to call

take out an ad to generate your own leads

Buy leads

Call, call call

Check your commission check each month for errors (assuming you make any comission at all)

If all of this sounds daunting, you could, instead, try going with a Network Marketing opportunity like Coastal Vacations.

Coastal Vacations is NOT an MLM, meaning, you don’t have to

bug your friends and family

worry about the friction that happens when you make more commissions than your “up” line

Watch your commissions be diluted as you share them.

What else does it mean>

Well, for starters, how about taking vacations whenever you want

being your own boss (not being a slave to meetings)

generating your own leads on our high traffic website

and making at least one thousand dollars every time you sell?

How does that sound?

If getting paid what you are worth and getting your life back sounds appealing to you, then give me a call.

What to look for in an MLM company

If you’ve been following this blog for any length of time, then you know that I am a Level 3 Director for Coastal Vacations. So you probably think that I am going to tell you that Coastal Vacations is “the” MLM that you should go for.

But that’s not true. For two reasons (actually, 3).

First of all, Coastal Vacations is not an MLM.  It’s members make money off of direct sales, not off of residual commissions. But that’s okay, because every single director makes at least $1000 per sale. Minimum.  Yes, the Coastal Opportunity pays phenomenal commissions to it’s directors.  At $1000+ per sale, it’s the best Network Marketing Opportunity I have ever seen. Which brings me to my next point:

Sales. As in, you have to sell. And this usually means selling on the phone. So unless you have a better way of promoting the product, or are willing to be trained on the phone, you shouldn’t join Coastal Vacations and expect to never use the phone.

Incidentally, fear of the phone is the NUMBER ONE source of anxiety with former Coastal Vacations Members. I know, because many of them contact me to re-sign up with my training program. Which brings me to my final point:

Don’t sign up for Coastal Vacations unless you sign up with a director who trains their people.
