Are you an Affiliate Marketer or Network Marketer? Do you know the difference? Because there is a vast difference between the two marketing strategies? Even though they are closely related, there is a vast difference between the two? And, understanding this difference may be the difference between your success or failure in your home business. So, what is network marketing and how does it work?
When you search Wikipedia for “network marketing”, for some unknown reason, it brings you to a page that actually defines MLM Marketing. Why? I’m not sure. Because MLM Marketing is NOT Network Marketing! As a seasoned “Network Marketer” I can tell you there is colossal difference between the two.
For example, MLM Marketing is participating in the sale of an established company’s products/services. As an MLM Marketer, your earnings are derived from how many products you can sell or how many people you people you can “sign-up”. And, as an MLM Marketer, you are paid on a commission based system.
If you are just starting out, it is IMPERATIVE you understand. MLM Marketing and Affiliate Marketing are closely related. However, Network Marketing is a skill NOT a marketing system!
So What IS Network Marketing?
To determine the REAL definition and gain a clear understanding, let’s consider the two words: Network and Marketing.
Network: a group or system of interconnected people….
Marketing: the action or business of promoting and selling products or services.
Therefore, when asked: What Is Network Marketing? The proper response would be: a group or system of INTERCONNECTED people promoting and selling products or services online.
And, when asked: What is a Network Marketer? My answer is: a person who interconnects with people with the hopes of promoting or selling products or services online!
If this is the first time you’ve heard about network marketing, you should know that it’s NOT a system! It is a skill set! It’s something anyone can learn and do. And, it’s something you HAVE to know if you hope to succeed in your home business.
