This point is very important to be clear in making a decision. Both are systems that decide to take certain companies to trade with their products or services. Unfortunately are often confused quite often since their strategies are usually very similar and in many cases overlap or camouflage ones behind others. The biggest difference between the one and the other are placed on the requirements that will require you the company to pay you your commissions, bonuses, etc. In a genuine MLM require you only three things to receive your income: 1. monthly consume the product or service of the company. The cost of that consumption should not exceed $140 more or less. 2 Build a downline below yours for autoconsumidores like you who wish to start business.
3 Teach and show the path that you have taken and which you you being to achieve benefits to such persons. In a nutshell, teach them to perform steps 1 and 2. At the precise moment in which your company require you having to reach to a certain volume of sales so they pay you your commissions, qualify every so often (can be monthly, quarterly, annually, etc.), integrate your team to a certain number of people or any other type of condition in 99% of cases were of a direct selling company. What is a direct sales company: basically and in principle its philosophy is equal to the multilevel. You will have to create a network of distributors under you. But look I have said distributors and not autoconsumidores. There is the big difference. While in MLM, your mission is to create a network of people that consume the product or service of the company in direct sales you will have to create a network of sellers.
Currently and today people usually enjoy buying and eating all kinds of products, since that consumerism gives us a particular pleasure. Every person seek pleasure that gives you and your product. However reject the vast majority of cases in which to sell a product. Therefore we like to buy not that we sell. At that point is where the first difficulty that faces the initiate in the world of Network Marketing. Do not have enough information, choose a camouflaged direct sales network Marketing company and the day following or a few days found with your kit at home and realizing that you have to start selling a product or service. That person, normally does not have any knowledge of sales, marketing strategies. Do you really think that achieved success? I doubt it, although I found cases in which have been surprised up themselves of commercial skills that were saved, but the truth is that they are the large minority of people. It is not easy to sell products without adequate knowledge or sufficient experience. Therefore, make sure you before entering the company if it is direct selling or Network Marketing. I know many frustrated people to realize its goal to generate revenue is filial to sellers. You I assure you that it is much easier to find 100 people who want to have their own business only being autoconsumidores that to 10 entrepreneurs who have you skills good sellers.
