Network Marketing - It's a People Business - by Michael Puskas

Recently I received a call from a person who asked me if I wanted to make $10,000 over the next 30 days.  I told the caller that this was not realistic.  I actually felt insulted.  Why?  The reason this upset me is because he had no clue who I was and what my abilities were.  He just threw out a number to impress me and get me to call a phone number to listen in on an opportunity.  Well, needless to say, I was not impressed and no, I did not make the call.


The fact is that most business opportunity-seeking people are not impressed with numbers; they are impressed with genuine care for them, their needs, and dreams.  Every person has dreams and goals.  The problem is that most do no know how they are going to fulfill them.  They need a caring person to come along side them and help them to make their dreams come true.  If you are serious about network marketing then people must be your priority.  Wealth will come to the one who cares for people.


Contrary to popular belief network marketing is not a money business; it is a people business.  Take care of people and the money will never be your concern…this is certain.  I know that this may trouble some in the NWM business.  Some may argue that it is all about money.  People want money don’t they?  No, people want what money will bring them.  To be successful in the NWM business you have to listen to people and find out what they want money to do for them and help them to get it. Your eyes must be off your bank account on one the person that you are sponsoring.


Flimflam artists are everywhere on the internet.  They impress you with pictures of cars, yachts, huge homes, and lots of cash.  These are the same people that go from one program to another chasing money.  They promise to make you rich, but those promises are usually empty.  They just grab your hard earned cash and run.  Some may spend minimal time with you, but most will not.  To them it’s about the money.  It is too bad that they never learned the secret.  The secret is SERVICE.


Despite these flimflam artists I would like to tell you that network marketing is the best business in the world.  We have actually been doing it all our lives.  Since you were 2 years old you have been recommending products to your parents and friends.  The only difference is that you were not paid for it!


Network marketing is the best way to spread news about products and services.  There is nothing better than word-of-mouth advertising—I know because I have been in sales for the past 15 years.  Companies know this and that is why many of them choose to get their goods and services out through the NWM method.  Instead of paying advertisers to market their products and services, they pay the network marketer to do it for them.


I personally have a tendency to buy products and services recommended to me.  Right now I am considering which smart phone to buy.  Guess what, I am seeking recommendations!  I feel most comfortable about purchasing a product or service that was recommended by someone who has experienced it. Well, in network marketing we get paid for recommending products.  Isn’t that awesome?


This method of marketing is so effective God used and is still using it!  Yes, I said God.  When God became a man in the person of Jesus Christ he was only one person with a most awesome “product” called salvation.  The way God spread the good news about His salvation was through his disciples.  He trained twelve men to do what He did.  Once trained, He physically left them and charged them to go into all the world and tell about the good news of salvation to all.  Guess what?  They went and shared the product (the gospel) with all those they met.  The result was the kingdom of God grew.  Throughout the ages there were and are millions upon millions of believers on this earth as a result of the “network marketing” efforts of these twelve men. I personally believe that anyone who does what God does will be blessed! 


I would like to leave you with this parting thought.  Network marketing has been and always will be about people.  The average person does not know how to run a successful network marketing business.  They need help, coaching, and mentoring.  That is the committed network marketer’s job.  If you help them fulfill their dreams, your dreams will be fulfilled automatically.  You can take this philosophy to the bank…literally!
