questions for network marketing


I remember when I saw my very first network marketing, business presentation. A friend of mine, from high school, called me and said, “I just found this way to make money. You’re not going to believe this.” He invited me to see it. I did and I was mesmerized! It seemed so easy to do. I just needed to recruit 6 people and they’d do the rest. How hard could that be?


I only asked 2 questions. “How much does it cost?” and “Where do I sign up?” I was young!


My sponsor managed to recruit 2 other people and I came close a few times, but never got a sign up. What went wrong? For the most part, we just had no idea what we were doing.


What could I have done differently?


For starters, I should’ve been asking more questions about the company and about my, would be sponsor. Here is a list of questions that I think everyone should ask their would be sponsor.


Finding out about the company


How long has the company been in business?


Not that a company couldn’t go out of business later, but most companies that last 5 or more years will be fairly stable. This should help you to decide if the company will be around in another 3 years or 10 years.


Does the company have a good product that is in high demand?


is your network marketing product in demand


This is critical information. The product needs to work and it needs to be something that most people buy, on a regular basis. The product must also be consumable. This means that the customer must use up the product on a monthly basis. This creates a repeat buying base. It is the repeat buying that will create a more stable income.


Is the product fairly priced?


You must remember that “fairly priced” has a lot to do with the value that the product has. An example of this would be vitamins. You may be able to go to the local Walmart a buy a bottle of vitamins for $9.00, but what is the quality of those vitamins? Your company may sell a bottle of vitamins for $30.00. Your company’s vitamins need to be good enough to warrant the higher price and you must be able to show people that they are that much better than the vitamins that they could buy at the local Walmart.


If you can’t demonstrate the value of your company’s product, you could have problems selling them.


Does the company have any useful training for their distributors?


you will need to be trained


There are some companies that offer decent training. Then there are companies that offer none or nothing that would be of use. If the training that you would get, as a distributor, is in the form of buying books and CDs from the successful people in the company, I’d walk to the nearest exit.


Getting good training is, in my opinion, essential to your success.


Finding out about your sponsor


How long have they been in the business?


It could be helpful to find a sponsor who has been in the business for some time. That’s not to say that someone who is new couldn’t wind up being a good sponsor. It just seems like a sponsor with experience would be a safer place to be.


Are they in profit?


To me, this is one of the most crucial things that you can find, in a sponsor. If they are in profit, there is a good chance that they can teach you how to be profitable, too.


How many customers do they have?


If they have said that they are in profit, this information might tell you how they are making their money. A good customer base is a great thing to have. A good customer base could mean a sustainable income. This will “keep you in the game” long enough to be able to learn how to recruit people into you business.


How many people have they recruited into the business?


recruting in network marketing


This is also good to know. How much experience do they have in recruiting people? Will they be able to teach you how to recruit? Do they have such a big downline that they won’t have the time to teach you anything?


If you learn how to recruit, you could make a lot of money in this business!


Will they be able to offer you one on one training?


In network marketing, knowing what to do and how to do it, is the key to success. If your prospective sponsor has been in business long enough, if they have a good customer base, if they are in profit and have experience in recruiting new people, then you must determine if they are going to be willing to teach you what to do and how to do it?


Those are the qualities that I look and the questions I ask in order to find a good company and good sponsor.
