When Times Are Tough Network Marketing Flourishes!

Historically when times get tough network marketing still flourishes, people begin to look for additional ways to generate additional income. Often when there is a down turn people begin to search because one they’ve either lost their jobs or their hours have been significantly cut.

Yet at this time is when most people who can cut back on their marketing budget. They stop trying to reach out to those people who are interested in getting started in a business.

    Hi Glenn…you are right on with this post! The best times for Network Marketing is during times such as we are currently going through! Record high gas prices, food cost increasing daily, health care out of reach for many…with the traditional media screaming Doom and Gloom, Network Marketing truly does thrive, as people look for a way to supplement household income and make ends meet. We as marketers should realize this fact and turn up our marketing efforts. Great post and enjoyed the video.

    Hi Glenn,

    The recession has come and people are trying to find ways to create money.

    Unfortunately there are challenges that people aren’t aware of when it comes to investing their money. Many people are looking for magic or a pipe dream.

    If they start a home-base business it takes skill and time to build the business. If they are unemployed do they have enough money to budget in a business without jeopardizing their family and getting into bigger problems?

    When times are bad some people start to gamble with their investments. Gambling can be fun however if they do it without any control they can lose everything they own. The same applies for investments.

    When a person decided they want to invest they have to do it within their budget. It is better to invest in something that you have a passion for and you are willing to learn the skills to achieve so you can get a Return on Investment with your investment sooner than later.

    Wishing you the best of Success,

    I have to agree with Ted. When times are tough, that is when Network Marketing should be at its highest.

    With everyone trying to stay home and not spend money on gas, eating out or extra “fun” things – these are the times when they are probably on the computers looking for new money making deals.
