Back in 2006 I predicted that in the near future, traditional companies (including the media) would begin to look at Network Marketing companies as viable businesses without mentioning the usual “scam” or “pyramid” talk.
I saw this as a merging of affiliate and MLM style marketing.
Well, here we are 12 years later and my prediction is coming true.
Network marketing business models are expected to grow in popularity in the coming years. Next year, especially, will see a boost in this trend as major companies such as Avon and Amway have been reaping benefits through its use. The commission-based business strategy relies on distributors to market the products and services. This would prove ideal for home businesses as they can outsource the marketing works to the distributors.
Network marketing gives you a chance to concentrate only on producing and delivering great products and services. The process of promotion can be outsourced to professionals.
I added the emphasis above, but what you notice is a practical focus on the benefits of Network Marketing from a company perspective.
According to the Direct Selling Association, 20.5 million people in the United States were involved with Direct Sales (Network Marketing) in 2016. Those entrepreneurs produced more than $35 Billion in revenue for companies with somewhere in the neighborhood of $10 Billion paid in commissions.
While your uncle claimed that “those things” are saturated and a waste of time, Direct Selling added $5 Billion in sales since 2011.
