The Catastrophe of COVID Catapults MLM to Great Heights
Updated Aug. 2020
“I can’t believe you are in one of those pyramids, no thanks, I’ll stick to my secure job.”
Every single network marketer on the planet has heard that retort more than once. The tenacious and clear visioned reps in network marketing never let it stop them though… and it’s finally paying off big time!
Now comes COVID-19; a pandemic of catastrophic proportions…
Turning businesses and families inside out and upside down. Companies laying off, closing down; never to be heard of again. Mothers and Fathers across the globe are trying to fight to put food on the table but their jobs they thought were secure, are not.
Over 30 million people have found themselves unemployed during this pandemic… Not a fun place to find yourself.
Many who judged and never took direct sales, network marketing, mlm seriously, are suddenly expanding their minds to the opportunity that has sat in front of them for decades, but ignored, until now.
“We’ve never seen so many new reps admit to this (COVID-19 Pandemic) gave them the excuse to at least try MLM; quickly to fall in love with everything about it.” B. Richards
People have become extremely humbled by the situation they have found themselves in. The masses have grown desperate to earn a living and not lose absolutely everything.
You see, network marketers may have seemed out of the box in the past, and maybe some are. However, the world has reached a crazy place right now and not much makes sense.
When you can’t pay your bills because you lost your job, and venture out to start your own, home-based business in direct sales? Now, THAT MAKES SENSE.
When you realize that working for a traditional company requires you to fight against the corporate ladder to get ahead, you recognize how truly little control one has over when or how that will happen. However, making a small investment in a networking marketing business allows you to work from home, work hard and start getting promoted quickly. THIS, ALSO, MAKES SENSE.
It makes sense to start a home-based business doing something you absolutely love, versus the daily grind of rush hour traffic and having to punch a clock for a boss you don’t like at a job you hate.
This is why those “crazy network marketers” are seeing such insane growth during this pandemic.
At the end of the day these “crazy network marketers” took a risk of being ridiculed and now are seeing an insane amount of payoff for that risk.
“We’ve seen a 400% increase in recruiting & sales in our organization since being hit with COVID; it’s been a wild ride.” K.L.
While some are cursing the crap out of COVID-19, most network marketers are thanking their lucky stars they had their businesses already established before COVID.
Those working in the marketing industry are grateful that they can be the very one to help save their neighbors, friends and family by offering an opportunity when there aren’t many other options in the pandemic.
If you are new to network marketing or a tenured leader, read on if you want to take your business up to even greater heights!
Crush it in Your Network Marketing Business
From Amway, Shaklee, and HerbaLife to LegalShield and beyond…
If you were to ask someone with an outside perspective of the MLM industry, they would call those companies a pyramid scheme.
There is no greater example of a pyramid scheme than having a job where you have to deal with office politics to move up the ladder, and are paid what the job is worth; NOT what you are worth. Plus there is no better definition of a pyramid scheme than the type of work environment where the top people make all the money and the underlings can’t… Yep, sounds like jobs are the pyramid schemes to me!
Any legal home-based business gives any individual more of an equal playing field to generate income than any job one could ever be offered… where your sex, education, and race still play a hand in what you can earn. Not the case with network marketing AT ALL.
My family has made millions in the MLM arena, and I’m more than proud of it.
As C.E.O. of Gravity Junction, this is why I’m passionate about our team developing Customized Team Training and Recognition Websites for network marketers. I want to give back to an industry that has served me and my entire family for several generations. Plus, I love the incredible people of network marketing, you are a different breed and I can relate :-).
Network Marketing Team Websites
The reason Network Marketing can help the average “Joe” make millions is the same reason people buy franchises instead of starting their own company… They are buying a SYSTEM.
Your MLM company may have a corporate site, or even a site for you to customize for recruiting and sales. Where most businesses fall short, however, is providing the individual team leaders a way to train their team online.
From getting your new recruit started, to keeping them in the loop for specific team promotions and events, having a Custom Team Website is the way to go. This also makes room for showcasing some of your top performers. Talk about rapping into a whole new way to take your business up a notch. (Or ten.)
“If it’s not leveraged, don’t do it.” J. Gardner
Team websites give you the leverage that’s really needed to grow a huge organization.
Paid & Promoted
It can be more than taxing to recruit someone into your business. The prospecting & follow up process usually isn’t a super short one.
Once you have recruited a new person in your business, I know it’s your goal to get them started right and QUICKLY.
On your custom team training site, this is made possible, basically instantly for each new recruit you bring on.
Expediting the process of your new recruit, getting them on your site, watching training videos, reading documents, watching power points, or whatever media, can get them into sales and recruiting mode right away!
This way if you recruit a superstar who doesn’t even know how to spell the company name, you can still go on a recruiting frenzy. As the team leader, you can know and feel confident that they are being properly trained on your team site!
THIS IS LEVERAGE beyond leverage.
“People may leave a business, but they won’t leave a family.” Unknown
I have personal friends in the network marketing arena who are earning over $600,000 a year, and “culture building” is what they have focused on since the beginning.
This ranges from promoting the hell out of their personal team events, that are outside of the corporate-specific events, and doing as much team recognition as they possibly can.
“Recognition, Babies Cry for It and Grown Men Have Died for It” Unknown
Recognition of anyone on your team advancing in rank or hitting a benchmark in earnings is critical in this industry.
Your custom team site can feature, announce and highlight anyone you want to give recognition to…
Further locking your team into a culture that promotes, wherein the workforce this is rarely done and creates jealousy. Versus in network marketing where it inspires!
