The Less You Know The Less You Earn…

Recently, one of the newsletters I receive called MarketingPower by Andre Vatke, covered this topic, and how it affects many individuals in network marketing.

As I read this statement:

It turns out that the average network marketer spends more time researching a new computer of cell phone plan than they do the network marketing company they join.

First, I laughed as I reflected on my early years not just in this industry but in life as well.

We have all made purchases or commitments that we’ve agonized over afterwards? You know that feeling in the pit of your stomach. Did I make the right decision?

As we get older and a little wiser, hopefully, it happens less often.

When it comes to this industry as Andre pointed out 9 out of 10 offers are gone within 24 months! Often, they are replaced by a new offer, guaranteed that this is the one!

When I started this site years ago, I researched so many companies and created a category on the site and wrote up short articles about the companies.

After a couple of years, I quit doing it. Some of the companies no longer existed or they where bought out by a competing company. Or worse yet where shut down by the FTC.

Is it any wonder that so many are frustrated and failing within network marketing, doing everything from following the wrong advice to choosing the wrong company.

So how do avoid falling for the charlatans and exaggerators or choosing the wrong company?

It’s simple; The More You Know – The More You’ll Earn!

    I have recently started working in network marketing, I really know little about this business and try to get more and more usefull information about it. I will be grateful if you give me some advice how to start at first.

    I don’t necessarily think the less you know is the less you will earn. As long as you are taking action on the things that you do now you can use other people to leverage the stuff that you don’t know.

    Interesting, in that when you leverage others as you indicate are you not learning from them. Basically grabbing the small amount of information that they will convey to you.

    Most in network marketing simply don’t understand that even your upline and others within you company are all in competition with you along with the millions of other network marketers.

    So people still fall for traps like getting on safe list, I know I was one of them years ago. That account still gets hundreds of spam emails everyday, even from large business that we all know. When it comes to marketing the more you know the higher you chances of success will be.

    If I could give you one piece of advice it would be to take everything you read on the internet with a good deal of skepticism.

    Read everything you can but don’t just sit on that information. Knowledge is great but it is the action part that will make you successful.
