Previous Post: Part 3 of 6 – Affiliate & Network Marketing Myths BUSTED!
In my (albeit short) time as an entrepreneur, I found that the subject matter of this 4th post of 6 myth buster vids is a topic that is one of the biggest reasons network marketing gets a bad rap.
Marketing is something EVERYONE does, but not everyone gets paid for it. And it’s usually because people don’t understand it, and/or have negative and usually misguided impressions about it. So here’s to breaking those walls!
Please note that there ARE SOME differences between network marketing & affiliate marketing, which I’ll get in to in a different post.
Network Marketing Does Not Work!
Here are just a few examples of information from the DSA (Direct Sales Association) as referred to in my video:
The 2013 estimated retail sales of USD $32.67 billion for the direct selling channel were up 3.3% in the United States, from USD $31.63 billion in 2012.
The size of the direct selling sales force increased 5.7% to 16.8 million in 2013, a record high.
The industry experienced a surge of new direct selling independent representatives at the height of the recession. Due to normal attrition and the fact that some people join the industry for the short term, the slight reduction in force was expected in 2010 and 2011. The size of the industry’s sales force grew 1.9% in 2012 and is continuing to rise through 2013.
The percentage of households estimated to have a direct sales person as a member is the same as in 2012 at 13.8% of U.S. households.
Therefore, it’s obvious that Affiliate & Network Marketing works! You just have to DO the work to get the payout. (And it can be BIG!)
