What to Look for in a Network Marketing Company

ist2_6154143-falling-money-xxlNetwork marketing is often referred to as MLM (Multi-level marketing) and there are thousands of MLM companies operating at any one time in the U.S. alone.

The amount of information on the internet is phenomenal; you’ll read good things and bad things on just about every company, which can make it a little overwhelming to choose one to work with.

Don’t let this abundance of information scare you away though. With the right company, network marketing can be a very lucrative, rewarding and exciting industry to be a part of.

Here’s a list of criteria that will help you find a company that’s right for you:


Look for a company that’s been around for a while. You want to make sure that it’s stable so you can grow your career with them. Ask about their financial situation to ensure that you’ll be paid the commission you earn.

You also want a company with strong leadership. Look for people who have a lot of experience with MLM and started out the same way as you so they can understand and help you succeed.


Find a company that sells a product or service that you love and are passionate about. It’s always easier and more enjoyable to sell something that you truly believe in.  You want to make sure that the product you’re selling is somewhat unique and is geared towards a niche market so that it’s easier to reach your target audience.

Price and value are also important factors. If you’re selling something that is both valuable and reasonably priced, customers will continue to reorder with you.

Compensation plan

Choose a company that excites you to get out there and sell, sell, sell! Look for a commission structure that is fair and drives you to recruit new people. Just be sure that the commission you make from down line is derived from the sales they make and not from sign up fees.

Duplicable marketing system

Marketing your business is key so look for a company that offers a step-by-step system that is easily repeated and takes the guesswork out of marketing. This will also help you train your down line to be successful.

Looking for these four simple things will help you get your exciting, new network marketing career off to a great start.
