To begin with, network marketing is also popular as multilevel marketing or direct marketing or cellular marketing, etc. Companies encourage tiers of salespersons or multi-level of associates.

At first, the distributors or associates use these products at home within their families. Next, they sell these items to their relatives, friends and knowns. Moreover, they directly enrol a few people as their associates or business partners. Sometimes, they call them either ‘downline’ or ‘heart line’. On the other hand, the people who recruit the ‘downline’ are the ‘up line’.

The process of recruiting ‘downline’ continues to unlimited depth. Therefore, it is ‘multilevel marketing’. Earning of a person depends on personal sale along with the total business of various ‘downline’.

I am trying to clear it a bit. Suppose, you recruit 10 associates. They are your 1st downline or ‘heart line’. This is level1 or tire 1. Similarly, the associates that these 1st downline recruits are the 2nd level or tire2. These 2nd level people also recruit the 3rd level or tire 3. In this way the level or tire increases. Hence, new people are joining under various distributors of several levels and the level increases.

What are the disadvantages of network marketing?

The biggest disadvantage of this marketing is that we cannot think that it is our own business. Therefore, we are not serious about this job.

Generally, people think that they will earn a lot of money easily from here. But they are unwilling to know how it is possible and what they have to do for it.

As it is easy to join, therefore it is valueless to the majority of people. So they left the business without any pain.

Another disadvantage is that people are unwilling to learn. They simply ignore the fact that learning is earning.

You need to work very hard for around three years to build your base from where your income may go up and you may experience financial freedom.

Generally, people want time freedom and financial freedom. But they are unwilling to pay the price for it. Without paying the price, how can you avail the benefits?

Who can do this?

Anyone, who is an adult can do this network marketing business. Only you need a valid ID proof along with PAN card and photos. Besides, you require a savings account because the company will send your income in your savings account. The company generally send your income when your income reaches a minimum amount. The companies calculate income after the monthly closing date.

Although companies do not ask for any qualification, still you require a little bit of reading and writing along with internet knowledge. However, your active ‘upline’ will guide you and help you. But you must learn them if you want to earn a lot from here.

What is the power of network marketing?

Network marketing may be a very good solution for increasing unemployment worldwide.

Moreover, people get an income after deducting TDS (tax deduction at source). It means, that if you earn Rs. 10000 in a month, the company will deduct the tax from the source. Then you will get your payment. The system is very transparent. Therefore, tax evasion (non-payment or underpayment of tax) is not possible in this network marketing industry. Consequently, the government will earn more revenues from this sector in comparison to traditional marketing.

Another great feature of network marketing is that you first use the product. If you find that the products are really good, then you tell your close people to use them. They can easily know the benefits of the products as you cannot tell lie to your close circle.

There is no chance of duplication in this system. Products directly come from company to customer or consumer. In case of duplication, the company is directly liable.

This is the only field where everyone is helping others. If ‘downlines’ earn more, then active ‘uplines’ will earn more. Therefore, everyone is trying for your betterment.

If you can build a very effective ‘downline’ group, then your earning will increase or continue even if you are absent from your work for a long period due to some family problem or health problem. In other cases, your income will go down or you will be incomeless.

Women empowerment:

Added to this, network marketing is helping women empowerment. Almost, all the companies are marketing skincare (beauty) products and homecare products along with wellness products. Women are naturally very good in these fields. Therefore, it is easy for them to earn a good income from them. Additionally, they can work at flexible hours. So they can easily manage their family.
