MLM due diligence steps are strongly suggested because the most important business decision you will make when entering the MLM/Direct Selling Industry, is choosing the best MLM/Direct Selling company to join. MLM/Direct Selling (aka; Network Marketing or Home Businesses) are great ways to create an extra stream of income for the family or a primary stream of income that, over time, can turn into wealth for you and your family. Notice that I said “Over Time”; meaning that you keep your day job until your residual streams are 150% of your income from your job.
MLM/Direct Selling is a legitimate business that takes as much hard work as any business, but is different than a traditional business model because you usually have a low investment to start the MLM business and the main form of income is Residual Income, the Holy Grail of all income!
Again, the most important part of starting a MLM/Direct Selling Profession is choosing the best MLM/Direct Selling company to join. Hence, the following MLM due diligence steps will help you determine if the company you are looking at will provide an environment where MLM success will not elude you. Without the majority of these attributes in place, your chances of finding true financial freedom are slim.
Furthermore, after each point, we will look at how Life Force International, the Holy Grail of a MLM/Direct Selling company which is in huge momentum right now, measures up with each point provided. You may think that the article is biased, but these points are based on facts, not opinions.
Please read each point carefully as these are the top MLM due diligence steps you should take. This will also help you better understand what the exact factors are for choosing the best MLM/Direct Selling company and that lead to true success in the MLM Profession. Remember, you are not being interviewed, but you need to interview the company!
How old is the MLM company? This is one of the main MLM due diligence steps when choosing the best MLM/Direct Selling company to join; You need to have a company that is stable in the industry. If you don’t, you increase the chances of joining a MLM company that will fail;
-Less than a year old the survival rate is less than 10%.
-One year to two the survival rate is 30%.
-Year two to three the rate is 50%.
-Over three years the survival rate jumps up to over 70%.
Part of the MLM success equation is how fast the company is growing; is this a new company built on hype or an older one that is financially stable that has a new system putting the MLM into massive momentum?
Life Force International: Is almost 3 decades old. Therefore, the “Going Concern” is almost certain. Life Force is also in an explosive MLM growth phase because of a new system that was released at the end of 2011.
Do the company owners/officers have experience in MLM/Direct Selling Company management? The best combination for a successful MLM is a businessman and a good Network Marketer. As a word of caution, never go with a company with more than two partners because few survive. Do your MLM due diligence on top management including background and financial checks.
An old saying for the MLM Industry is; “you can change the products, you can change the pay plan – but you can’t change the owner!”. It proves true over and over.
Life Force International: Is a family owned business. Wayne and Gerri Hillman, the founders, have run the company all these years and just recently passed the reigns over to Marjorie Hillman as the Hillmans are in their Golden Years and want to enjoy life.
The officers of the company have over a century of combined MLM/Direct Selling experience. David Collister, our newest addition to our Company, has 3 decades himself of MLM/Direct Selling experience and has brought an energy to the Company that has propelled Life Force into massive MLM growth since the end of 2011.
Does the company have adequate funding to survive? When going through your MLM due diligence steps and choosing the best MLM/Direct Selling company to join, the lack of funding, even during explosive MLM growth, is the biggest killer of MLM/Direct Selling Companies that are under three years old. The biggest fib that new companies tell is that they are well capitalized which leads people to a false sense of security when joining the MLM.
Life Force International: Has $0 (ZERO) debt on the books. Everything, including a new 100,000 square foot manufacturing facility, was paid with cash. Life Force runs a “tight ship” and maintains budget integrity in all aspects of operations.
Does the company give you adequate support? Are checks paid promptly on time? Is there a good system for correcting errors? Does customer support provide timely support for questions or problems?
Are products shipped promptly without delays? Delays in shipping may indicate financial problems. Does customer support promptly assist with errors in fulfillment or shipping?
Can you order products quickly and easily by cost free phone, fax, or Internet? Can your customers order directly using the same simple methods? Can you and your customers easily get products automatically each month by setting up an “autoship” program?
Life Force International: Two points here; there has NEVER been a back order on products nor a late check to a distributor. Life Force’s customer service is as top notch as they come; always willing to help with any issues, give us an easy and duplicable system for ordering, and does offer an autoship programs that provides an average of 10% reduction in product cost.
What are the products or services? A very important MLM due diligence step when choosing the best MLM/Direct Selling company to join; Is the product or service competitively priced? Would you buy the product (or service) if there wasn’t an income opportunity attached to it? This is an indication of a pyramid scheme; money generated from the opportunity and not from the product (or service) is the focus of sales.
A simple question to ask is, “if all recruiting stopped tomorrow would I still be able to make money and would the company still be in business?”.
Is the product (or service) consumable? The reason nutritionals and skin care are so popular is that they are consumed on a monthly basis. This monthly usage provides a solid basis for a stable monthly Residual Income. Is the product (or service) patented, or exclusive to your company? Do the products meet the needs of a major trend such as Baby Boomers wanting to stay young?
Do you like the products (or services)? Can you become excited or passionate about them? A belief system in your products (or service) helps you share them with enthusiasm. Could you truthfully give a testimonial about their effectiveness? These are major factors for long term success in MLM/Direct Selling.
Do the products have a money back guarantee of satisfaction? Do they contain high quality ingredients? Is the product (or service) easily demonstrated? Are there samples available? Is there a product video? Is the product’s packaging attractive?
Last, but probably first; the product also needs to be of high quality and is not something that is easily substituted. The reason being is that if you are in an MLM that sells cell phones for example, there is a lot of pricing pressure on the cost of the phone because there are so many substitutes on the market. If there is a ton of pricing pressure, there is no way that a company can build in enough of a margin on the product to pay its business partners well enough. If the product is unique and very effective, the market will pay a premium therefore allowing for enough margin for the company to pay a person well enough to continue building their MLM business.
Life Force International: Has a MAJOR competitive advantage here. Life Force’s product line consists of 18 nutritional supplements with more coming each year. The Flagship Product; Body Balance, is a fantastic Whole Food Supplement that fulfills all the questions stated above. To make this more efficient of a process, please visit our Body Balance Detailed Information Page so you can see for yourself.
What industry is the company in? Huge MLM due diligence step when choosing the best MLM/Direct Selling company to join; There are a lot of MLM companies that are in industries where there is a ton of pricing pressure as mentioned above. Some of these include; telecommunications, travel, legal, and others that provide a MLM structure around a product but have barely any margin to work with. You have almost no chance of becoming wealthy with products like this.
As a variable in the MLM success equation we need to consider those companies that have unique products. Not only do they need to be unique, but also VERY effective in what their intended use is. This way, because the products are doing something for someone that is not found anywhere else, the company can build a margin into the product in order to pay out well enough to distributors of those products.
Life Force International: Again, we need to have a unique product that allows for enough margin to be built into the price to pay distributors well. Life Force International has those unique products.
The Company has an array of Whole Food Supplements that are packed with the nutrition our bodies are lacking plus have an innate ability to produce results. Not only are they unique, but consumable.
Additionally, the products need to be part of a growth industry. A good example of this is the Wellness Industry. The Wellness Industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world today. It is nearing the $1 trillion mark and will join only a handful of industries that achieve this milestone.
A major reason for the growth is that the Baby Boomers are getting to the age that they want to feel good naturally without popping a handful of pills to make it through the day. Whatever the Baby Boomers want, the Baby Boomers get!
To get much more detail about the Wellness Industry, please visit our Wellness Industry-Best Industry for MLM Growth page.
Does the company claim a “get rich quick” type of atmosphere? RARELY does a person become wealthy in a short amount of time in MLM/Direct Selling. These types of claims are what drives people away from the MLM/Direct Selling Industry. Therefore, you need to find a company that is realistic and supports people for long term growth.
Life Force International: Although the average person can produce a profit with the Life Force business model within the first month, wealth building with the business is a long term goal.
We do not advertise this type of get rich quick nonsense. A MLM/Direct Selling business is like any other business in this respect; it takes a few years of diligent work to build a business that can potentially be your sole source of income.
Are the company’s Policies and Procedures available for all to see? This is one of those very important MLM due diligence steps when trying to find the best MLM/Direct Selling company to join. What is the overall theme of the P&P’s? Are they for or against the distributors? Make sure you read through them before joining any MLM/Direct Selling company.
Life Force International: Refer to the Policies and Procedures. Life Force’s policies and procedures are fair and equitable to all distributors while still protecting the company’s Going Concern interests.
Does the company support the “part time distributor”? 99% of all people that join the MLM/Direct Selling Profession do it on a part time basis (5-10 hours per week). Therefore, finding a good MLM/Direct Selling company means that they do not enforce quotas (covered below) and treat all distributors equally.
Life Force International: There are no quotas with Life Force and gives equal support across the board. I started this business on 5 hours per week for the first few years so I know what it is like to build an MLM business on minimal time. I provide an environment for all of my business partners that helps them get an MLM business rolling using minimal hours by teaching them to use the “Silo” approach.
What is the company’s relationship with the Better Business Bureau and the Direct Selling Association? When choosing the best MLM/Direct Selling company to join; Does the company have a good rating with the BBB? Are there any major complaints with the company?
The Direct Selling Association is a “3rd party policing agent” of the MLM/Direct Selling Industry ensuring that MLM companies are; legitimate, ethical, pay fairly, and are not pyramid schemes. Accordingly, is the company you are looking at a member of the D.S.A.?
Life Force International: For both the Better Business Bureau and the Direct Selling Association, the answer is an astounding “yes”. Life Force is in the highest rating possible with BBB and has been for many years. Life Force is also a member of the Direct Selling Association.
How much is the investment to start with the company and what is the return policy? In our economic conditions today, we cannot expect people to have a huge layout of cash to get into a home business. Times are tight enough and to ask for a “membership” fee, along with product purchases being in the neighborhood of $1,000-$5,000 to start, is counterproductive. Even if a person is interested in the Profession, they may not have the capital layout to be able to even afford the entry fee.
There are over 22 states that require registration if an MLM/Direct Selling opportunity requires you to spend over $500. Two states say it must be kept under $200. A good MLM/Direct Selling company will have a way to join for under $1,000.
Furthermore, MLM Companies in the “good” and “best” category will have a return policy good for 30 days to a year to get 100% of your money back on products.
Therefore, there needs to be low investment options with your new company that brings the barrier to entry down to little risk. That range of investment should be $50-$500. With this range, almost anyone that has the entrepreneurial spirit can come in and build a business.
Life Force International: Life Force International’s investment is as low as $47.50 and as high as $495. There are 4 levels of entry into the business; Associate 1 ($47.50), Associate 2 ($89), Associate 3 ($155), and the Simple Dream Kit Sampling System ($495).
There have been many that have come in at the lower levels and increase their own investment once it mathematically makes sense to do so (i.e. they would be making more of a profit at a higher level).
Life Force gives everyone that joins a 45 day, 100% money back guarantee on all product purchases even if you use all of the product(s). No questions asked!
Again, in this type of economy, a low investment is paramount and with a large percentage of people looking for extra income, it makes for a “perfect storm” of opportunity”. On the other side of the coin, for those looking for a business plan and a means to invest, we have the Simple Dream Kit available for people to create a substantial return on investment.
Is the company in a MLM/Direct Selling explosive growth phase? This is a very important aspect of success in the MLM Industry and, specifically, when choosing the best MLM/Direct Selling company to join; Is the company you are looking at growing, stagnant, or declining? “MLM momentum” is something that can be infectious and can help to grow a person’s business big time simply from the energy a MLM company in momentum produces. Everyone in the company feels it which produces excitement and transcends through the ranks.
Life Force International: Is in HUGE MLM momentum! What took me 7 years to build, doubled within the first 3 months of 2012. The reason for this explosive MLM growth is a new Sampling System that has been adopted by the company.
Furthermore, Life Force has been a small company for many years whose growth has been mainly due to the quality of the product. Therefore, because Life Force is not a household name yet, the market penetration ability is perfect. No one knows about this secret Holy Grail MLM/Direct Selling company YET!
Life Force purchased a 100,000 square foot facility a few years back to ramp up for this type of MLM/Direct Selling growth; going from under $100 million per year in sales, to an expected $1 billion per year in sales. To learn more about the growth that Life Force is experiencing, visit our “Sweet Spot” video.
MLM/DIRECT SELLING COMPENSATION:
In my opinion, this is THE most important MLM due diligence step to consider when choosing the best MLM/Direct Selling company to join!
Residual Income is also called Passive Income and refers to any income generated through indirect involvement in something. It is the most sought after income in the world because of the indirect involvement and how large the streams of revenue can be. MLM/Direct Selling income, Rental income, royalties, website revenues and portfolio dividends are all types of Residual or Passive Income.
It’s easy to understand the idea of Residual Income if you consider the word “residue”. A “residue” is defined as; “something left behind as a result of something else”.
Think of Residual Income like this; imagine you had $1,000,000 sitting in a money market account that pays you 3% on that amount. That would equate to $2,500 per month (($1,000,000 x .03) / 12 months). That money is coming in regardless of what you do. Now, imagine you build a MLM/Direct Selling business that pays you $5,000 per month, which means, effectively, that you have a $2,000,000 asset sitting in an account. The asset (business), is paying you on a month per month basis for work that you have done once in the past.
The whole income structure in MLM/Direct Selling is residual. Your MLM/Direct Selling business is made up of customers and business partners purchasing product volume. Those business partners bring in other customers and business partners and so on which increases the overall product volume you are paid on month after month.
In a good MLM/Direct Selling compensation plan, you get percentages on all the levels of activity (sales). You could have someone that is a customer or business partner that is 10 levels below you and you are getting a percentage of their purchase every month that they order. Therefore, the initial work that you did finding your first business partner is not only paying off every month from that partner’s order, but you are now exposed to everything your first business partner brings in every month, customers and business partners included. This is the exceptional concept of Residual Income.
Just as with anything in life, there are poor, average, and great MLM/Direct Selling compensation plans, therefore, you need to be able to decipher which is which;
How is the compensation (pay) plan set up? Is it legal? It should be based on the sales of products (or services) and not solely based on bringing in new business partners. Generally a maximum of $500 in product purchases is legal to join a company. The cost to join the company should not exceed what you are comfortable with. Remember that there is no business in the world that can generate a significant residual stream of income with this type of low investment.
Beware of “Get Rich Quick schemes”, if the money sounds too good to be true, it is usually a pyramid or downline building scheme. A good MLM/Direct Selling pay plan will have an overall pay out between 38% and 55% based on the sale of products.
Does the compensation plan have a proven history? Can you understand the compensation plan and how to maximize your income as you grow your business? If not, ask your upline sponsors to help explain it to you better. Learn how to place new customers/business partners to maximize your income.
Are there high residual percentages close to your position in the company? The majority of MLM companies do not have high percentages in the first 3 levels of their pay plan. They tend to average 5%, 5%, 5%. Because of this, there becomes a “3rd World” make-up of the company’s distributors. There are those distributors that started with the company at the beginning and end up having a large percentage of the company’s distributors under them. They are the ones that generate the most income.
Because the pay plan does not pay people well enough initially, there becomes a “bath tub drain” existence with new people. Each month new people come in, may last a few months, and then quit, while new people come in to replace them. The initial business partners with the company always make a profit because the activity below them, but everyone else makes squat which is why they are considered “3rd World Pay Plans”.
This, of course, is why we hear, “Well isn’t that one of those things where the people at the top make all the money”. The true answer to this is “no”, but you can see how someone can get this impression.
What needs to happen is for there to be high percentages within the first 3 levels of a compensation plan so that new distributors get into profit immediately. Again, many MLM companies offer; 5% 1st level, 5% 2nd level, and 5% 3rd level. In order for a person to even break even in this matrix, they would need 15 people using the products.
Most people do not have enough confidence in what they are doing in the first three months to even acquire this many new customers or business partners and, again, leading to a person walking away because they are not successful quickly enough.
Is the MLM compensation plan a “Binary” plan? These plans are made up of two legs or sides. You basically are allowed only two people on your front line and do not start getting paid until both sides start getting filled up.
Let’s say you bring in a good business partner that takes off, but your “other side” is not moving, most companies won’t start to pay you until both sides are going. Once again, this plays into the whole phenomenon of people leaving the business if they do not make a profit in their first 90 days.
What is the “Net Payout” of the MLM company? The average MLM/Direct Selling company pays out 38% on every dollar that comes into the company. Meaning, all bonuses, residual, and the back end pay of a company does not exceed $.38 going out to distributors for every $1 that comes into the company.
When you are looking for a good MLM/Direct Selling company to join, a good question to ask is; “What is the Net Payout?” of that particular MLM/Direct Selling company.
Obviously, if all other factors are in line, you want to make sure that the payout is at least above 38% to be higher than the average.
Does the company implement quotas? Many MLM companies enforce a quota on a person’s pay check. This means that in order to get paid on a monthly basis, a person has to have a certain amount of activity in their organization and, if not, they either get a reduced check or none at all. This puts a lot of pressure on people specifically those doing this on a part time basis.
What if you were going along receiving $500 checks every month and you started to live within those means, then one month you have a down month and do not make the quota. All of a sudden, your budget is thrown into the wind.
In my opinion, this is another reason why MLM/Direct Selling can get a bad name as people do experience this type of set up in some companies.
Does the company practice “Front End Bonus Loading”? This is where a lot of MLM companies look good initially, but pay poorly over time because they give out ONE TIME bonuses on the first sale but then have low residual percentages over the course of the customer/business partner relationship.
Remember, the main reason to be in business, from an income standpoint, is to build a steady stream of Residual Income. If you notice that a company dwells on how high of a bonus you get for signing people up, that is a red flag. Big bonuses are great, but the name of the game is to “work ourselves out of a job”, and that does not happen if you have to continue to enroll people just for a bonus with low residuals on the back end.
A good compensation plan is going to have a moderate bonus but then good residual percentages on all levels.
How is the Attrition Rate of the company? This is the MAIN obstacle in building a successful MLM/Direct Selling business and usually is directly related to the compensation plan because the company does not pay enough for MLM momentum to start.
Momentum means that once you start your business and start enrolling customers and business partners, that these new people are not leaving as fast as you can bring them in. Momentum has new customers coming in that are satisfied with the product and continue to use them and business partners that are making a profit quickly and continue to build their and your organizations by bringing in other business partners. This MLM/Direct Selling momentum becomes an unstoppable force at a certain point.
I have been in the MLM/Direct Selling Industry for 7 years and, per my calculations, you have 90 days to get new business partners into profit. If they are not in profit by then, 95% of them will leave the business. It can become an attrition rate nightmare!
Therefore you have to have a pay plan that does not base itself off of large bonuses up front, but a residual plan that pays high in the first three levels.
With this compensation structure, your business partners are able to develop a profit within those 90 days at which point only 10% leaving the business for other reasons (business not for them, no time, etc.). Otherwise, why would a person leave if they have their products paid for and have extra money coming in on top of their expense?
Life Force International Compensation Plan (after reading this you would like to learn more, visit our compensation videos (scroll down to the bottom of this page)):
-High Residual Percentages Close To Your Position. As mentioned above, the average payout in the first 3 levels of an MLM company is 5% on each level. Some companies are even less. Therefore, how does one expect to get into any profit right away?
With Life Force International, the first 3 levels are 5%, 40%, and 10%, for a total of 55%. This residual payout is absolutely mind blowing. With literally 2-3 people, a person can be in a profit position. Furthermore, bringing in 5-10 people in that first month, distributors can be in a several hundred dollar profit already. There are many that earn over $1,000 in their first month.
To give you some perspective, with 99% of all other companies reviewed, when you are making $100-$200 in other MLM companies, you would be making $700-$1,000 with the same amount of activity with Life Force International. Again, this is not a biased opinion, but fact based. For this reason alone, why would you go with a company that pays you 86% less? It is like taking a job for $10,000 per year when you could be making $70,000 doing the same exact thing.
-Compressed Compensation Plans. Life Force International’s compensation plan is a “Compressed” plan, meaning that one is not limited to the number of people on their front line and some of these plans can pay into infinity. With Life Force International, you can have as many front line business partners as you want. What this does is make it easier to get into mass income because you are not limited to 2 legs producing all your income.
I have had many people come into my organization over the years and some have produced a great quantity of product volume, some a little, and some none. The great thing is that my income is based off all of these people, not just two of them.
A compressed compensation plan also negates the “box you in” concept. Many companies only pay 6 levels deep, so what ends up happening is that if you have someone on your 7th level and they are going like gang busters, you have no income exposure to them. With the Life Force International compensation plan, we get paid to infinity until ranks start to bust it up. This means that you could essentially be paid on your 20th level unless a larger rank starts to emerge, but even if that larger rank emerges, you still have that larger rank in your organization, which means higher rankings for you plus higher residual percentages on the 4th level to infinity.
Bottom line is that Compressed Plans maximizes a person’s ability to generate income and ultimately, wealth.
-Net Payout Comparisons. As discussed above, the average Net Payout is 38% for a MLM/Direct Selling company. With the Life Force International compensation plan, the net payout is a whopping 60%, almost double the average. Basically, one has the ability to double their income in half the time with Life Force International and have double the income possibility over the long haul.
The two main reasons why Life Force International is able to pay such a high rate of return is; 1) they are privately owned by Wayne and Gerri Hillman which means they do not have income generating pressure from the market and 2) they make ALL products in house which saves in the cost of producing the product. Wayne and Gerri have made Life Force International the most generous MLM company around today.
To see actual Net Payout comparisons with other major MLM/Direct Selling companies, visit our Compensation Plan Comparison page.
-Quotas. Quotas are a big “no, no” in my book. Life Force International has no such thing in their pay plan. If someone is doing this business on a very part time basis, they do not need pressure to make a “quota” every month.
This is NOT what MLM/Direct Selling should or is about. It is not about pressuring people into doing things, it is about teaching and informing people that there is a better way in life through the business and products and allowing people to build a business on their time, not the company’s. Quotas just promote a high pressure environment.
-Front End Bonus Loading. All companies have bonuses on the front end and the bonuses are a good aspect as they provide immediate cash flow for the new person.
But, if a company bases the majority of a person’s income ability mainly off of bonuses, we are getting away from the whole residual aspect that makes this Industry so attractive.
Life Force International has a good “Fast Start Bonus” that pays people 55% on the first volume of a new customer or business partner. This allows a person to generate the total of the first 3 levels of the compensation plan with one sale, but then rewards them with the high residuals for any repeat business. Life Force International’s compensation plan is evenly weighed meaning the bonus is good, but not overly high and also great residual pay.
-Attrition Rate. Again, the main obstacle in MLM/Direct Selling is attrition rate. If one can solve this issue in the MLM industry, the rate of success sky rockets.
Life Force International has a very high rate of stability throughout the company, both with customers and business partners. Per my calculations, 93% of customers and nearly 70% of business partners stay with the company for long term, which makes it a heck of a lot easier to build MLM/Direct Selling momentum.
Specifically for Life Force Business Partners, because of the high Fast Start Bonus and high residuals on the first 3 levels, a person can get into profit very quickly.
Because the Fast Start Bonus is 55% and the total of the first 3 levels is 55%, a person’s check does not fall from the bonus to something that is discouraging. All of this helps the business partner stay engaged in the business during the most volatile time of their business, the beginning.
Another aspect that is not talked about enough is the percentage breakout of customers to business partners. In Life Force International, 70% of the people using the products are just customers, and only 30% are business partners. This suggests that there is a very strong product base. Many MLM companies have quite the opposite, suggesting that the whole business is based from a business aspect which never lasts over time.
-Bonus Piece of the Compensation Plan. What you are about to read is something that is not found in the MLM/Direct Selling Industry’s compensation structure; getting paid for TRAINING!
For those of you that know the MLM/Direct Selling Profession well know that, we spend a lot of time training people that do nothing in their business. Therefore, the return on investment is $0. But, with Life Force, this is no longer the case.
When we bring a business partner in that purchases the Dream Kit Sampling System and we train them on how to use the System, we are paid a good percentage of that purchase. We not only get paid on our team’s training, but if we train others, we get paid for that as well.
There are distributors in Life Force that focus on training large groups of people in their downlines, crosslines, uplines, and are paid a good amount for doing so.
With this addition to Life Force’s compensation plan, there is literally no MLM company out there that matches Life Force.
Again, Life Force is the Holy Grail of MLM/Direct Selling companies!
MLM BUSINESS STRATEGIES:
Does the company have adequate training? Another important MLM due diligence step to look for when choosing the best MLM/Direct Selling company to join; Does the company have good systems for providing training on products, pay plan and building your group? Are they low cost and easily available? Will your upline help train you? Will they do three way phone calls with prospective clients?
What training methods does the company provide? The more the better such as video tapes, audio tapes, conference calls, manuals, newsletters, satellite shows, Internet, plus live local, regional and national training.
Life Force International: Has all of the above. We have two main support sites with tons of video and audio training. We also have modules that are automatically sent to your new business partners.
The Life Force culture is one of support and people genuinely wanting to see you succeed. Therefore, it is very common practice that your potential upline will be involved with you step by step.
Furthermore, Life Force has what is called the Dream Academy which is a FREE 2 day event down in sunny San Diego at the Corporate Headquarters. The Dream Academy focuses on training new business partners in the Sampling System.
There are also multitudes of training events throughout the country and the world that are run by top Life Force leaders.
Life Force’s training, involvement, and overall support is second to none. The Crown Diamonds (highest members in the company), are still very much involved in developing everyone, even if a person is several levels below them.
Basically, when a new person comes into the business, they are taken by the hand and lead through the training until they feel comfortable enough to walk. With other companies, the new business partner is given a website and few instructions and is then expected to go out and “make it”. This is not a recipe for MLM success.
Bottom line is that you will never be short on support!
What type of sales aides and marketing tools does the company have? Is there Internet support and training? Does the website help you sell products or services? Are there local meetings that you can take prospects too? Is there a good Internet web site with information available? Are there good brochures for mailing?
Life Force International: Once again, Life Force has this covered. We have a ton of marketing tools including;
-Vibrant product and business brochures and newsletters.
-Local events that give a prospect a professional setting to see what Life Force can do to enhance the quality of their life.
-Internet funnel system with several videos to choose from and a back end lead management portal.
-Over 15 videos to choose from that are professionally done that cover the product, the business, and the company varying from 5 to 45 minutes.
-Free replicating website for every business partner which allows prospects to learn more about the company, business, and products. They can also order from the site.
-There are two support websites that contain plenty of training that includes all forms of learning (visual, audio, tactile).
-Duplicable system which is very simple to use. The key is to master a few action steps and teach that to the new business partners coming in.
-Free Product Program for Customers. Life Force International offers something that 99% of companies do not offer; the ability for customers to receive free products, every month, for the rest of your life. This should be “too good to be true”, right? WRONG! The GotMy3 Program helps customers, in this economy, get rid of the product expense by providing the customer with a free 4 pack or 8 pack of Body Balance each month providing that the customer has 3 customers referred to the product. What this does is mitigate any issue with price and keeps customers loyal to the Program.
