Are men better at network marketing?
I came across a surprising statistic a while back. Did you know that 80% of all network marketers are women? I had no idea.
I was remind of this fact, a few days ago, when I read a blog post written by my good friend Chuck Holmes. You can find his article here. “Why you should recruit more women into your MLM business.”
I was surprised that the demographics were skewed that much in favor of women. I would’ve thought that it would’ve been 50-50 or even that there were more men, in network marketing, than women.
Live and learn, right?
After I saw that statistic, I wondered what percentage of the top earners, in MLM, were women. I was finally able to track down that number It is equally surprising. Women make up about 5%-10% of the top earners in MLM. My first reaction to that number …?
Why is it that so few women make it to the top levels of MLM?
I would’ve thought that if women are 80% of the network marketers, in the business, that they would be 80% of the top earners as well. Wow! I was wrong!
I wish I had an explanation for this phenomenon. I really can’t think of any reason for it.
Chuck says that you should recruit more women into your business. I can see doing that if you want to increase the percentages of people who say yes to joining your business. It seems that, all things being equal, that you stand a better chance of recruiting a woman than you do of recruiting a man.
Here’s my $64,000 question.
If you recruit a man, do you have better odds of that recruit being a heavy hitter?
Will he make a larger impact on your income, than a woman would?
If you go by the numbers, they would seem to say that if you want better odds of recruiting someone, then recruit a woman, but you stand a better chance of finding someone who will go the top if you recruit a man.
Am I think about this incorrectly?
Does anyone have an explanation or a comment about all of this?
