I have always respected the network marketing model and always found it very confusing that others did not. Recently I have discovered A Dirty Little Secret to why this might be true.
The last few days have been very telling for me! I have had several conversations with people that are advertising what they do on Facebook. I have reached out to many of them with honest curiosity about their offerings. As long as there is interest on my part about their offerings, they are friendly, engaging, and helpful. As soon as I suggest some reciprocity in looking at my offerings, things take a turn. Let me explain.......
Most of the posts on Facebook that I am talking about are people advertising intangible things like coaching, lead building, and motivational topics. I have been considering paying for some training in these areas. So I have been reaching out to coaches, teachers, and motivational speakers to see which programs might be the best fit for our team.
These are some of the responses I have heard.
One person posts regular copies of their earnings. This individual sells a program, not a product. I looked at this program and found that what they sell is already available to us through our upline. So, when I explained that, with my thanks for sharing all they had with me, and suggested a look at my products, I got lots of avoidance from someone who was "on it" when I was looking at their stuff. This person's personal posts are about adventures and healthy eating , not to mention financial success, so I thought affordability of our products would not be an issue and I really think our products are a good fit.
Another encounter was particularly troubling because I had bought one of their products. I attended a FREE seminar understanding that these free offerings are lead ins to discovering what is for sale. I went with an open mind, enjoyed the seminar and purchased an hour consult for a later date. I enjoyed the hour and actually got some useful information. This coach encouraged me to seek some of what I needed from my upline, because that really is one of the benefits of network marketing. However, I was encouraged to purchase the year long offering for $10,000.00 with the encouragement of specific and one-on-one attention that, "in the past has helped other network marketers rank advance and produced tremendous team growth".
That sounded like a positive response to network marketing to me. It boiled down to affordability for me and that I was better equipped to ask my upline for what I needed. That seemed to be well understood and actually encouraged. I have since engaged with this person on Facebook and asked if there might be an opportunity for me to share my products with someone for some feedback and the response shocked me! "I am not interested in network marketing products". What?
Everyone is networking at some level but it seems if you have an actual product, you are somehow less legitimate. I do understand that tons and tons of inferior or duplicated products have flooded the waters of network marketing, but talk about throwing the baby out with the bath!! What about those legitimately superior products that true network marketers are offering?
I am just sad about the fact that some of us with PRODUCTS that truly can change the world are over shadowed by program promoters trying to convince us that their program is the only way to sell our PRODUCTS. In the flurry of all of this, the focus on what the world really needs is missed.
The Dirty Little Secret about Network Marketers is a lack of integrity in what to market!! All of the hype and talk about money has taken away from the power of moving quality products!
After all, are your cabinets and closets filled with programs or products? Quality products being sold is what makes our world work. You know me well enough by now to know that I don't just mean "stuff", I mean quality products that really do improve and empower our lives.
