7 reasons people say no to Network Marketing

1) I just don’t have the money. Finances are really tight right now
We all know the economy is terrible everywhere, but have you been into Walmart lately?  What about at Christmas time?  There was no shortage of consumers walking out the doors with big screen tvs, Nintendo Wiis, and cartloads of gifts and supplies for the holiday.  Have you been past a restaurant at dinnertime lately?  The parking lots are not empty. Folks are even taking vacations which is mind boggling when their home life is not taken care of.  People are feeling a pinch in certain areas of their lives, but people will always find a way to buy what they want to buy.  Even you.  Did you stop buying weekly lotto tickets?  Do you still have cable TV? Bottom line, people do what they feel is important to them at the time. The great thing about my business is, we've identified which priorities are most important to people during this bleak economy and provide services aligned with them. All of the above mentioned purchases are services we offer and get paid on. Online shopping, debit card purchases, dining, cellphone payments, cable/internet services and payments, home and car payments. See what I mean? These are things that are necessities.  My primary company was developed with the economy in mind. There are 3 levels to get start, and one of them is FREE. Issue solved. 

2) I’ve always heard that you shouldn’t have to pay to get a job.
If you’re used to checking out opportunities before you pay ‘the fee’ to join, then you’ve heard this mantra a million times… ‘never pay a fee to get a job.’  If you hear that there are a million work at home data entry jobs, and one company has access to them all, and it is only $49.95 for administration costs to get access to these one million companies, don’t do it.  Same goes for surveys.  It’s not necessary to pay a fee to get a list of marketing research companies who will pay for your opinion.  That information is readily available.  So, of course when you get ready to join an MLM and find out there’s a whopping sign up fee, the red flag goes up.

So who are we kidding here?  If you want to mess around the bottom of the barrel with data entry and survey opportunities in order to try to make a living on the internet, that’s fine.  The difference with a reputable MLM company is that it’s not just a job.  We’re not talking about paying someone an administration fee to get access to public information.  MLMs with quality products are offering you an opportunity to become an independent contractor on behalf of the company and the product.  For the signup fee, you should receive any number of the following: a heap of the quality product that you’ll be selling, samples of the product for your customers, advertising materials, access to training, access to promotion and advertising materials, and hopefully a greatly motivated and helpful upline to assist you in your work at home endeavors. 
3) I’m terrible at marketing and I don’t want to bother my friends and family about money
The initial reaction when you sign up for an MLM is to start calling all your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, etc. immediately and try to push this product, and business opportunity onto them. After all, you won’t make any money until you get people buying your product and signing up to sell it. If you think it’s probably annoying for them to listen to you go on about this or that latest and greatest thing, then it will be.
But here’s something to consider before you sign up for any MLM company. Find a product that you are passionate about. Think about when Crystal or Brandi brings the Mary Kay catalog in and sets it on the break-room table. Is there a mad rush to take a look at the newest offerings for the month? There just might be. But Mary Kay has been around long enough that it sells itself. Everyone knows what Mary Kay is. People who want it, want it. People who don’t, ignore it. No one has to be passionate about anything, and it still works. Better yet, let’s look at Vitel. I partnered with a company whose products and services are in in line with what you are already using in your household. In this case, you would not be creating a new “bill” but getting paid off of products and services that are already established. Would you be annoying your friends if you introduced something like this? And adding the mere fact that your household bills would be paid on top of the commissions just adds a cherry on top. And it’s because of those reasons, that it’s easy to get other people passionate about joining your business.
4) Get rich quick opportunities are always too good to be true
Most of us still believe that it’s just impossible to get rich.  Despite the success stories that we hear about Bill Gates, Michael Dell, or even the lady who created ‘green’ cleaning supplies when doctors couldn’t figure out why her child was constantly sick, we still believe that it can’t happen for us.  Let me repeat, if this is your belief, than you will never have the opportunity to get rich quick, or even get rich.
The other problem with the term ‘get rich quick’ is that most of the people who use this term promise great riches in a short amount of time with little to no work on your part.  These are the opportunities that are too good to be true.  If you get yourself into the right MLM and get yourself into the right attitude, you may not be a millionaire overnight, but you could very possibly and quite easily achieve financial riches that you could have never dreamed of working 9-5 for a corporate office.  And with some MLM opportunities, it’s even quite possible to achieve millionaire status within a few months, or a couple years at most.  What you put into whatever you do will determine the results you take away from the experience. Think of your "job". The average job pays 24k a year. That is why our mindset is trained  not to believe that we can earn anything more. Anytime I show our compensation plan, people cringe at anything showing more than 3k a month. They are so used to comparing everything to their current situation. People come to me about change. So if change involves your income, open your eyes and mind to the possibilities

6) I thought pyramid schemes were illegal
The term ‘scheme’ often gets confused with the word ‘scam.’  We all know what a scam is and we are all advised to try and stay advised and as far away as humanly possible from anything that smells remotely of SCAM.  The term ‘scheme’ can merely be defined as ‘a plan, design, or program of action to be followed.’  Pyramid schemes ARE, in fact, illegal.  Many people confuse MLM opportunities with pyramid schemes.  The difference is this:  MLM opportunities are accompanied by a (usually) worthy product.  Within the MLM opportunity you have the option to sell products to potential customers, in addition to offering the business opportunity to potential distributors

7) I need a real job  (my favorite)
Embarking on the opportunities that the right MLM business can provide for you is quite different from having a ‘real job’ but can actually be a lot less limiting.  If you decide you want to run your own business, you get to be the boss.  You create the rules, you can break them whenever you want, you get more time with your family, you can smash your alarm clock, and you can potentially make loads more money than any company would ever pay you for your particular skill set.  What is it then that makes people nervous about not having the ‘perceived’ security of a real job?
In case you haven’t figured it out by now, our society is programmed by news, media, commercials, advertising, solicitations, government and consumerism.  When science has a breakthrough that destroys years of previous thought, theory and what we’ve considered to be the facts, it takes a while for people to begin to believe it.  The world is rapidly moving through the age of information and virtual reality.  How many times will we need to hear of massive layoffs or unemployed college graduates before we realize that times aren’t changing, they’ve already changed.  You know you’ve got to work until you’re 73 and a half or some nonsense before you can apply for social security.  Now that’s kind of outrageous if you ask me, and I’m not even going to get into whether or not social security will be available by the time I’m there.  We need to stop thinking about thinking outside the box and jump right out of the box. 

All of these reasons that I've given you each have one common denominator...FEAR. You can actually take advantage of a ground floor opportunity at LIFE!  Take a chance, believe in yourself, do some research and jump in!  You WILL get out of it what you put into it.  I don’t consider myself to be an expert, but there is a wealth of knowledge and information available to anyone looking.  If you contact me, I can sure help to point you in the right direction to achieve your financial and other goals with MLM.
