There are thousands examples that can be used, but the simplest way to illustrate this is with wagon wheels. If you were a wagon wheel aficionado and wanted to start a MLM business that sold only wagon wheels, you most likely would have immense amounts of knowledge and passion about wagon wheels. You would know everything from the proper type of wood to use, to the best way to manufacture the wagon wheel to how to maintain the wagon wheel for years of use. But there is a problem.
The majority of the world's population doesn't need or want wagon wheels anymore. Your MLM business would find it difficult to not only find new customers, but finding new distributors to help build your MLM business would be next to impossible.
Point of this ridiculous example is that the products or services will have to appeal to the masses and have some place in the market. They may not appeal to everyone, and you have to remember one of those people may be you.
If the products or services get the most attention, the compensation plan takes a close second. Every MLM business opportunity has some form of compensation plan. This is how the distributors get paid for building their respective MLM businesses.
There are many variations to MLM compensation plans, but the four basic compensation plans are the Unilevel Compensation, Stair-Step Compensation Plan, Matrix Compensation Plan and Binary Compensation Plan. Engineered Lifestyles has the compensation plan basics broken down part by part and it is suggested to review this information.
Understanding the compensation plan will allow you understand how you will be paid, and the tasks that will be required from you the distributor to qualify for that pay. Do not be afraid to ask questions until you are clear. To many times people let their ego's stop them from asking questions, then only find out after they get started they are not doing the tasks necessary to get paid.
The leadership of the MLM opportunity can be broken down into two parts. The two parts of leadership is the leadership within the parent company of the MLM business opportunity and the leadership in the field. How these two groups coexist together, will determine how the smoothly the company and most importantly the MLM business opportunity runs for you.
Understanding the leadership that is involved, both on the parent company side and the field leadership side is very important to understand. It can be said that this is the most important part any the four basics to any MLM business opportunity.
If you are investigating a "start-up" MLM opportunity, look to see who the master distributor is. Understand what their track record is as this will play a role in the MLM business opportunity. There are many leaders who are successful in building MLM businesses, but they are also "opportunity jumpers".
They are brought in to start a new MLM business opportunity, than once it is off the ground and running, they are off to the next opportunity. While there is always some leadership overturn, understand that it can cause issues within your organization as well as MLM opportunity. People can perceive the master distributor leaving as a sign of things to come, and that fear can implode an organization.
If you are investigating an established MLM business opportunity, ask how long the leaders have been with this MLM opportunity. What have they been able to accomplish in that time and how are they expanding the business? Three very important questions that will paint the picture of the kind of leadership that you can expect to have.
