Dear Donna Sue,
Welcome to the group. I am glad that you have
found us. I am with the network marketing division of a major
corporation. We are in charge of showcasing their premier preventative
health product lines. Network marketing is a legitimate form of
distribution. My company had serveral existing methods of distribution
already in place. They created this division because FDA regulation
state that you can not put a claim on a food based product. Our flagship
product was developed at Stanford for the stabilization of blood sugars and to
reduce serum cholesterol. Since it is a fiber based product, they could
not put a claim on the box. It would cost millions to educate consumers
and physicans so they chose to set up this division. If they
had distributed it through their other channels, it could easily get put next to
Metamucil. This product is more comparable to Mevacor or Lipator,
prescription medications for Cholesterol.
In regards to you concern about how money is made,
the short term money is made from signing up people but the long term residual
income is made from a lot of people consuming a little product each month.
I imagine that this is true with the company you referred to as well.
In regards to the time element, The minimum is 5-10
hours. Our company is going to an internet model of educating and training
people. I do not attend meetings and I communicate with prospects via
email and phone. I imagine all companies will eventually go to this
format. Time efficiency when communicating is important. I can
accomplish more in a 10 minute call now than what I did in a 40 minute phone
call when I got started. Regardless of the company you chose, you will
hone your skills and be able to do the same.
If you would like to look at a Network Marketing
presentation that is about the industry and not about a specific company, let me
know. I could give you the website to go to and the code word to
use. If you want more information about my company in specific and our
internet marketing plan, you may email me personally.
I hope that this has been helpful.
