If you are looking to make some extra cash on the side of your day job, or even replace your job entirely with your own venture, multi level marketing is a great place to start. Multi level marketing is a business model which many companies use to distribute and sell their products, through the use of agents like you and I. The beauty of this kind of business is that you can work within these companies as a salesperson, and then utilise their infrastructure to create your very own sales team, and continuously expand.
I have been working for the last two years with Jeunesse Global, a company who sells the most amazing beauty and skin treatments and it is honestly the bets decision I think I have ever made. This kind of business isn’t for everyone however and if you want to be successful, there are a particular set of skills which you’ll need.
At the root of this kind of business is your ability to sell and without that you will struggle to forge a career in this industry. In order to be great at selling you need to understand everything about your products, you need to be a great communicator and you need to convince people just why they need what you are selling. Being able to sell not only helps you to sell, but also helps you to be able to coach your team when you get one.
The real money comes in once you have a team that reports to you, who are actively selling plenty of products. In order to put this team together, you must be able to spot talent as well as being able to coach talent so that your team is doing everything that you expect them to.
Organising admin, deliveries and sales reports is probably the biggest part of my job and without having a solid and functioning system in place, I don’t think that I would survive. Without organisational skills you will quickly fail in this type of job and so if you don’t have them, but you want to get involved, you really need to work hard on how you organise yourself.
After reading success stories, many people want to get involved in a multi level marketing style of business. What often happens then is that people get started and want immediate success, when it doesn’t come, they pack up their bags and leave. The truth is that this kind of position requires hard work and ambition in order to get it off the ground, once it is up and running however, there’ll be no stopping you. Companies like Jeunesse put in place the infrastructure for you to succeed and as long as you have the ambition, you can really make a great living through your work with these companies.
