Many people regard Network Marketing business model as a Selling business. In my interactions with people when you are showing the opportunity to a prospect, the first line of objection is usually " me? I cannot sell products or peddle products around please". Sales function is part of the business of Network Marketing but is it the ultimate passport to success? Is Network Marketing all about selling products? I will like to answer this poser by quoting a mentor of mine who I love for his writings and publications on how we can become successful in life through Financial Literacy. The world acclaimed author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad and many other best selling books- Robert Kiyosaki. Is Network Marketing All About Selling and Earning Income? I will like to quote the response as elucidated in Kiyosaki Book- Business Of The 21st Century. "
Network Marketing is not about selling products or earning income". "The biggest popular misconception about network marketing is that it is a selling business. But selling is just earning more income. The problem is, if you stop the activity, the income stops". "Selling is not going to build your wealth or your freedom". " People often assume that being successful in this business means being "great at sales." But the point of network marketing is not to become great at selling your product or service......in network marketing, the whole point is not to sell a product but to build a network, an army of people who are all representing that same product or service to share with others". "The goal is not for you or any other individual to sell a lot of products; it is for a lot of people to be their own best customer, sell and service a reasonable number of customers, and recruit and show a lot of other people how to do the same thing". And here is the reason why you want to build that army of independent representatives: Once you do, you know what you will have? An asset that generates income for you known as Passive Income". " Network Marketing is not about earning more income, it is about building an asset".
Above is from the super experts in Financial Literacy knowledge. Network marketing is not about selling. It is about a system that builds you a leverage so that you gain from the efforts of others. The aim is to build a large army of independent representatives and do everything possible to make them successful which by so doing, your little efforts will generate multiple benefits year in year out. Happy Networking!
