Theres More Than One Option in Networking

By: Joe Bingham

There are so many 'typical' affiliate programs online, I don't think
everyone realizes there ARE many options as far as what kind of
network marketing you can become involved with.

So, in order to give you more possibilities to think about, I'm going
to relate to you some of the choices you do have and get you
thinking about what type of business will best suit you. I'm not going
to make any claims as to which type of business I think is best,
you're welcome to ask me that on your own if you like, however.
I'm just going to describe the options for you and let you decide.

As I list the different options, keep in mind which ones interest you
and then search for those best suited to what you want. There are
so many companies, I see no reason why you shouldn't be able to
find the ones that contain all the aspects you like.


There are plenty of stories about the old type of network marketing
where you had to have a garage full of products in order to get
started in the business. That's not true anymore thanks mostly to the
Internet. Today, you can still deal in physical products but rather
than stockpile them, you simply keep a few for your own use or for
exhibit and then just order from the company when a customer is
ready to buy.

You can even just keep a catalog on hand and not
have to maintain an inventory. With the speed of ordering online or
over the phone, this is a simple option giving you less overhead
expenses when dealing with physical products.

As well, you can now join network marketing businesses that sell
only digital or virtual goods. These constitute information businesses
where the end products being sold are all online information products
or memberships to web sites full of information.


You can literally find network marketing opportunities at any level of
required investment that you like. There are those that cost in the
thousands to join, but pay in the thousands when you get referrals,
and there are free to join affiliate programs that pay you to help them
sell products and service.


Some network marketing opportunities require you to work with
your downline and others don't. Some expect you to become a
leader and work with those you sponsor. Others have systems set
up to where you never even really know who the people you refer to
the company are.


Network marketing has been around longer than the Internet has.
You can join programs and work completely offline. You can also
work completely online, or any combination of the two that you want.


In some businesses, all you do is refer customers to a web site and
then let the site do the work of convincing them to buy. Other
businesses require you to work directly with your customers on a
one on one basis. Again, you can hit anything in between there also.
You could refer people to a site and then choose to do some
personal contacting as well.


Most network marketing opportunities will require you to sponsor
your own downline. In fact, that's all a lot of them want out of you
anyway. However, there are some that do extra marketing on their
own and will help you build a downline. Some, if you're willing to
make the initial investment, will make you a profitable downline over
time without you doing a bit of work on your own. However, you
can still work on recruiting as well and grow faster.

Hopefully, if all you've been exposed to is a typical Internet affiliate
program, you can now see there are other options. At this point,
stop and consider just exactly what you would be willing to put into a
program and exactly what you expect out of one. ThenArticle Search, keep these
options in mind as you go searching for the right company for you.
