Network marketing is A LOT more powerful & rewarding than affiliate marketing but for some reasons, the masses thinks otherwise.
A good analogy of this would be when I started promoting the Capricoin ALT COIN to the Bitcoin community. I did not get the expected feedback as the majority of people already have bad perceptions about the niche in general, and they just came to fast conclusions regarding the market and miss the opportunity. Because there is been a lot of scams in the past: they automatically think all are the same.
But the thing is: Not all coins are created equal. Not all opportunities are created equal. Let’s take a person who had a bad experience with an ALT COIN in the past … He put a bad reference into his brain and he now associate all the alternative coins in the same category … What can you do about that? Nothing, it’s just human nature.
For some reasons, we can say the same regarding network marketing VS affiliate marketing. Someone will try an MLM, will have a bad experience and will put all the network marketing companies under the same tag… What can you do about that? Educate people? Not if they don’t have the right mindset from the start.
Google Adwords are telling us there’s 90,500 search results for “affiliate marketing” VS 110,000 results for “network marketing” …
Network marketing is more researched today and the phenomenon is growing like no other business out there, do your own research and you’ll discover outstanding facts !!
What’s the difference between network marketing VS affiliate marketing?
Affiliate marketing is designed to use credibility of a proven product to retail to your audience. Whether that product is a course, an e-book, a webinar series or someone else success, etc… With targeting your audience problem ; you provide a solution for that and earn a commission for that sale. It’s almost in all cases a one time commission for a sale.
Network Marketing is a business model that offers a product and/or service to a customer base and offers a way for independent representatives to earn residual income. There are many different network marketing and direct sales companies but most offer residual income opportunities but most importantly : MULTIPLE source of income !!
Now … both marketing strategies are not for everyone but I see so many people give up on network marketing because it’s hard from them to recruit people. Most of them decide to go to affiliate marketing because there is no recruiting involved, just selling a product. But don’t you have to sell products in network marketing? Why not sell in network marketing to receive residual income?
