When someone asks you, “How does this work? How do you make money with this?” Nearly every single person in network marketing stammers out something different – even people representing the same company.
“Well, we develop people and help them get financial independence.”
“Oh, we teach people how to change their lives.”
And when it gets to specifics, even within companies, no one agrees.
On a recent conference call with 50 reps, all veterans of 5 years or more from one company listening in, I asked the group how much they’d make if they got a new customer who spends $100/mo on their products.
No one could agree on what they’d make. NO ONE. They finally settled on an amount, but there was still disagreement.
Pay plans can be complex in our field, but if those in it cannot agree on something as simple as “what do you make when you get a customer who spends $100/mo?” then how in the world will anyone of them explain to a prospective business partner how the money gets made?
