Nowadays, most network marketing companies are a scam. Most people end up jumping from one company to another. Therefore, you have to consider some factors to choose the right and genuine ones. So how can you separate the chaff from the wheat? In this post, we will be looking at some tips to help you select the right network marketing business for you.

Research: COMPANY


Although people follow people, the success of your network marketing business also lies on you choosing the right company. Fast and easy internet searches will go a long way in helping you with the research. Here are some vital questions you need to ask yourself when researching;

How old is the network marketing company? How well-established is it?

Is the it making progress? Are they expanding or falling?

Do they have a good reputation? People’s reviews and testimonials can  help you to know whether the company is genuine or suspicious. However, you should be cautious, some people are always negative. They can post negative reviews based on their own experiences. So watch out for such people!


What are people’s comments and reviews about this company?


Before taking a decision to join a particular network marketing company, try to find out the opinion of other people. People who have recruited new members or have marketed the company’s products will be in a better position to review or comment. The simplest way of finding such comments and reviews is to search the net. If you get many positive reviews and few negative ones, then you can choose you are making a good choice. But if it has a good number of negative reviews, you’ll have to stay away from such company. I found YouTube very good on checking out testimonials.


Check the reputation of the company’s CEO: COMPANY


Ensure that you check the reputation of the CEO and other big leaders of the company. Are they trustworthy, humble and of integrity. If the leaders have had legal trouble or have been accused of carrying out scams, it will be advisable to avoid the company.


Inquire about the company’s products or services.

Make sure that the company’s product and service are reputable since you will be the one to pitch and sell this product. Some network marketing companies market questionable products, and this can put you into trouble. You should consider how safe their product is to the health.


Read the company’s contract carefully.

Don’t be too fast to sign anything with your chosen network marketing company. Take your time to read and understand the entire contract of the company. Most people fail to do this and end up frustrated when they have not met the requirements set in the contracts and they quit. Don’t do that!


Watch out for illegal companies.

Some companies that pose as a network marketing companies are actually illegal. Some things to consider are as follows;

If the network marketing company is making more of their profit by selling products to distributors rather than the public.

If the company’s gain comes from recruiting more members than by selling their products.

Don’t sign any contract, If you notice anything wrong with the company.

Set up a plan.

When you’ve finally decided to go for a company, set up and write out a plan for building and establishing your network marketing business. Things to consider while setting up such a plan;

The kind of product or service you’re intending to sell.

The people that will patronize you.

The amount of time you’re willing to commit to the business, etc.

  • Really enjoyed reading this Catherine!

    Too often people will jump into a business before doing their due diligence. I know I did when I first got started!

    Successful entrepreneurs always look at the pros and cons carefully before making a decision. And once they make a decision they never look back.

    Great stuff!

      Thank you Dr Lisa for your comment. It’s encouraging to learn that such respected people like yourself have also made similar mistakes in the past, but you rose above it. And today you are doing great in this industry and all new people out there can be reassured that even if they have made similar mistakes, one can always start again and succeed.

    I know that this isn’t good, but I have never read any companies policies and procedures. I get bored fast with them. However, after watching several companies go under because of wrong-doings, I think that it’s best now that I start reading them. Because I don’t want to make any stupid mistakes that will cost me my living. Thanks for sharing this.

      Thanks for the comment Gary. It’s true there are so many companies just going under and small print is just small print! We sometimes ignore reading these policies and just end up regretting. I have seen people who quit and loose out on good opportunities after being in the business for just 1 year. They discover that they need to renew their membership, then they complain, simply because they had not read the policies. I also learnt the hard way 😉

  • You nailed the major points Catherine! People need to do serious due diligence before they join a Network Marketing Business! Thanks for this information.
