Category Archives: Network Marketing

My thoughts about Network Marketing. The industry, products, specific companies and my own Network Marketing business. I would like to state this Category should NOT be neutral. There is already so much neutrality out there. The purpose of this blog is to build my organization and support it which means more sales, volume, people and everything else, no holds barred.

Another One Bites the Dust (or) Why one should not jump around from company to new company

The trend to jump around from Network Marketing (or MLM) company to company and join every new one and expose all your contacts to it certainly should never have had its day! Some blame it on the training. New Distributors should be trained to be loyal and work the program to the end, especially if we know the company has stability. Some blame it on human nature, always able to be swayed by the next best thing…well some are not! My personal mentors stayed in companies at least 5 years and some more then 15 years. These are model Network Builders and command the respect of all but their own class. They are the ones who should dictate Network Operation Policy for all new beginners. Here is an email I received from a company I joined to see the inside but never worked because they did one of the great no no’s, change the comp plan within a year, and made many many changes, and it ended up making them lose focus and it killed the company, whether or not their product was viable (the product was ok, and the price was ok but nothing phenomenal, in my opinion). PS – Many networkers would not post the name of this company but I have no problem with doing that, especially as this is a public letter. Here it is:

Dear eFusjon Distributors:

It is with great sadness that we announce today that we must cease the direct sales multi-level marketing business of eFusjon, Inc. as of September 1, 2010.

The independent contractor distributor agreements will terminate as of this date.  See Distributor Agreement, Section 7 (“The Agreement shall continue in effect between the parties hereto until either party terminates the Agreement…”).  Qualified distributors will receive their last compensation check for the month of August, less offsets against any amounts that are owed to the Company, on September 10th.  Any commissions due will be available in your “Hyperwallet” account until October 31, 2010, after which date you will need to contact the corporate office (to access your “Hyperwallet” account please go to www.efusjonpay.com, or contact customer service for assistance).  The Company will send refunds of the $30 membership fee to those distributors who became members in August 2010.

This was a very difficult decision for the Company and not one we had hoped to make.  When the owners started eFusjon in 2008, we envisioned a unique and successful MLM business with healthy and unparalleled beverage products. The goal was to market these products through independent distributors via the MLM direct sales business model.  Distributor performance, however, has been steadily declining for over a year now, and as a result, so has the Company’s revenues. The Company can no longer maintain a marketing model that is not generating the funds needed to grow a viable business. In short, the Company’s MLM business model is no longer a sustainable marketing strategy.

With a certain level of optimism, we also announce today our decision to explore other opportunities for the eFusjon product many of you have come to love. For some period of time, you may continue to enjoy eFusjon products through purchases (without compensation) on the eFusjon website www.efusjon.com.

Lastly, we extend a sincere and heartfelt thank you to all of you for your dedication to eFusjon over the years and for standing by our product and the Company during the height of our success as well as through more recent challenging times.  We share your disappointment about the recent turn of events, but are cautiously optimistic about the future of eFusjon and eFusjon’s unparalleled, healthy beverages.

With gratitude,

The eFusjon Corporate Officers

I need to be first vs. Timing is Everything

Many people think that if they get in a Network Marketing organization first it guarantees their success, or adversely if they are not first they cannot be successful, nothing is further from the truth. The only thing that makes one successful is what is built beginning with that individual. In Usana my upline has been the #1 income earner in the whole company for many years, when he got in there were 50,000 Distributors that got in before him, he beat them all! Now, in my small (but growing) organization, I see at least 5 people making more income then I do, time to catch up!

If you are interested in what I do please explore!

ps – One man I know keeps stalling to build the business because he needs to be the first in his country, it just so happens the opportunity is very fresh in his particular country and if he has the clout he has said he does then he could potentially dominate that market and others…somebody please tell him!

I love Network Marketing!

Network Marketing at first glance seems to be an industry besieged by instability, bickering, self sabotage and general disarray. I will attempt to reconcile why I love Network Marketing, continue to participate in it, and see it as a viable means of making an income and uplifting humanity.

Some thoughts:

Magic of Part Time – Through minimal capital, minimal (but managed) time an individual who already has a limited income (working for a boss or on a time based contract) can eventually (may take a few years) create a substantial business that has a significant impact on their financial ability. For example, if a person is earning $3500 per month net and learns to work in their own part time business 2-5 hours per week and can generate an extra $500 per month net they have essentially raised their income by 14%. Think of which bills the $500 would cover. For many it can mean quite a lot, please review in your own mind what bills and what $500 extra per month can really mean in your life. This is a start. Afterwards through skill and leverage the business can double, triple and expand exponentially. That is what Network Marketing financial dreams are made of. But before we can fly we must learn to walk, at least most of us. Jim Rohn the famous business philosopher speaks of an extra $1000 per month when he describes the Magic of Part Time. Whereas that makes an incredible amount of sense I understand what an extra $500 per month can do and think it should not be overlooked!

Leveraged Income – There is only so much you can do on your own, with your own time, and your own financial (and other) resources. The famous “I would rather have one percent of 100 people’s efforts than 100 percent of my own.”  by Andrew Carnegie pretty much sums it up. By creating long term leveraged bonds built up of many individuals one can affectively accomplish more in the same amount of time, greater then their own ability.

Unlimited Potential – Especially in a job but in most linear income situations one can only make a certain amount. Getting a raise for x amount above the norm is generally not going to happen. In any good Network Marketing business one can simply expand their market and generate a new pay line, in affect giving themselves unlimited raises with no time limits. It is just a matter of planning the work and working the plan until it bears fruit. Imagine being able to work somewhat harder for 4-6 months and be able to double your income!
