Ultimate Guide

Let’s face it… times are changing… and “Old School” MLM is dead!

The good news is… those that take action on the information revealed in this post will be way ahead of the competition and cashing huge commission checks as a result.

I truly hope you are one of them. This publication is dedicated to those of you that apply this proven passive income system and take massive, life changing action!

Here’s a question for you:

Do you believe it is possible to “get rich” from Network Marketing, or is it all a bunch of hype?

My assumption is that you believe wealth through Network Marketing is possible, or you wouldn’t be reading this post.

However, I know there’s also a good chance that you are skeptical. Maybe you’ve been burned before, and your curiosity of this post is kind of a last-ditch effort?

Well, I can promise that you will find something of real value in this post no matter which side you take, and regardless of how jaded (or not) you are towards Network Marketing.

Here’s why…

Network Marketing has “grown up” over the past decade, largely due to the influence of the Internet.

More and more people are demanding legitimate, home based businesses; especially Internet businesses.

Yes, there are still some scams out there, but word spreads really fast on-line and these companies don’t last very long.

The second point to consider is that some MLM opportunities, as solid as they may be, are simply too difficult for the average person to succeed in if they are limited to traditional, off-line marketing methods.

In other words, the Internet has opened the door to an entirely new method of MLM – and it’s a method which is far easier, and more accessible to the average person.

This method is exactly what you’ll learn about in this post.

Here is a brief overview of everything we’ll be covering:

º What’s MLM? (for the complete newbies)

º How MLM works.

º How people make money from MLM.

º Why traditional, offline marketing is too hard.

º Why internet-based (new age) MLM is easiest.

º An illustration of a successful MLM system.

º The 7 steps of the complete marketing solution: a marketing system, multiple streams of income, leverage, duplication, replication, automation and retention. If you’ve failed at MLM before, then this ultimate guide will be a real eye-opener for you.

This is especially true for those of you who find off-line Multi-level marketing far too time consuming and difficult.

You’re going to learn exactly why the old methods failed you, and why the “new age” of Internet-based MLM is the answer you’ve waited for all this time.

Let’s get started…

What is MLM?

MLM (also known as “Multi-level-marketing” or “Network Marketing”) represents a unique approach to marketing products and services to consumers.

The core idea behind any MLM company is to implement the use of independent representatives to refer customers to the company.

Any purchase made by a customer results in the payment of a commission to the referring representative.

In essence, the representative can create his or her own business without needing to create a product for sale.

He or she can also grow and increase their business by recruiting new representatives into the business.

It’s important to note that real MLM opportunities are NOT pyramid schemes!

Many people confuse the two because of the recruitment and referral aspects are common between each.

However, in
a pyramid scheme, things are set up so that only the person at the top (the
originator of the scheme) gets paid.

In an MLM
opportunity, any and everyone who refers a customer gets paid.

Let’s go
ahead and look deeper at how MLM really works…

I think
you’ll see why multi-level structures can be fair and profitable for all.

I want to
provide you now with a better explanation of what “multi-level”
means.

It really
has to do with the commission structure available to independent sales reps.

In any MLM
opportunity, you will find the organization split into two groups: the upline
and the downline.

Your
“upline” consists of the people above you in the network.

Whoever
recruits you into the network is a part of your upline, as are the people above
him or her. However, the person who introduced you to the business is typically
more accessible and often serves as your mentor who trains you on how to work
the program.

Essentially,
you are a part of your mentor’s downline. Furthermore, the people you recruit
into the MLM opportunity will be members of your downline.

You might be
thinking, “I can just find a program and join it without being referred by
anyone, then I’ll be at the top!” This, however, is not the case.

The
absolute, top-tier of any MLM company’s upline consists of the owners/founders,
along with the first outsiders they brought in to the network.

So, while it
is possible to be very high up the chain, you have to get in on the ground
floor while the company is still in its infancy.

Now, joining
a program late in the game and being further down in the structure does not
mean you can’t make any money, or any good money.

There should
be plenty of opportunity for you if the company is selling a legitimate product
that people want and need.

That said,
one of the things you should look for in any MLM opportunity you’re
considering, is a product which can be sold to people outside of the network.

In other
words, you should be able to make some profit simply by retaining
non-affiliated customers, as opposed to requiring your downline to buy the
products.

Let’s
quickly go over how people make money from MLM…

People
make money from MLM opportunities by selling products and services. 


The big money comes from the multi-level structure, and from building your downline.

If you are at all familiar with affiliate marketing, then you can think of MLM as “affiliate marketing on steroids.”

Whenever you refer a paying customer, you get paid a commission based on the price of that product.

Your commission might be a flat fee, or it might be a certain percentage of the sale.

Now, as you build your downline, they will also be referring new customers.

Each time a member of your downline makes a sale, you earn another commission.

This commission is smaller than what you’d make from a direct referral, but the impact is cumulative.

To better show you how this works, let’s take use AirTook as example of a multi-level program with a network going only five levels deep.

Your commission structure might look like this:

– Direct Referral: 50% of sale

– 2nd Level: 20% of sale

– 3rd Level: 10% of sale

– 4th Level: 5% of sale

 

– 5th Level: 2% of sale

Notice that your levels are filled out by your immediate downline building their downline, which builds another downline, and so on until all 5 levels are filled.

You might wonder how the company itself makes any money when there are all these people taking a portion of the sale.

The first thing to realize is that a multi-level network (in this example) does not overlap beyond five levels.

In other words, your upline will not earn a commission from a sale made by someone in the 5th level of your downline.

Also, notice that if you add up all of those percentages, you don’t reach 100%. This holds true no matter which level the sale is made on. The company will earn a minimum 13% profit, even when paying out commissions to all 5 levels.

Now, let’s take a look at what an average day’s sales could bring you if you were to build your downline all the way to the 5th level.

We’ll pretend that the product the company is selling has a retail cost of $100. If you made 1 direct referral ($50), 10 sales on the 2nd level (10x$20=$200), 5 sales on the 3rd level (5x$10=$50), 5 sales on the 4th level (5x$5=$25) and 3 sales on the 5th level (3x$2=$6) then you would earn:

50 + $200 + 50 + 25 + 6 = $331 total commissions

Not bad for a day’s work, right? T

he size and depth of your downline has a cumulative effect on your income, and this is why MLM programs can be so profitable when you understand how to work them.

The key word here is how. It is not simply a matter of referring as many people as possible.

One of THE single, biggest mistakes made by MLM newbies is recruiting un-targeted and unmotivated downline members.

In order to succeed, you must learn how to:

º Target the right market for the product.

º Target the right opportunity-seekers for the business opportunity and get them into your downline.

º Train and motivate your downline to do these same two things as well as you do! That’s how you get the big pay days in MLM.

In the remainder of this Ultimate guide, you’re going to discover how to accomplish all of this with less effort than you ever imagined. Let’s get moving…
