What is First-Class MLM?
First-Class” means the first, highest, or best group in a system of classifications.
There are first-class accommodations on airplanes, hotels, trains, cruise ships, etc. There are first-class restaurants, first-class cars and first-class neighborhoods.
What creates “first-class” status is the attention to detail, the selection of quality ingredients, the training of staff and the respect given to the client or customer.
The restaurant industry is neither high-class nor low-class. Yet, in every high-class restaurant there is someone who determines the policies and the activities for the chef, waiters, and maitre d’ and sets the ambience to create a particular mood in the restaurant. All of these items establish its “first-class” status. A restaurant that is first-class has been created and maintained that way – by a person or people. A “low-class” restaurant is also created by NOT paying attention to these details.
The MLM (Network Marketing) industry is neither high-class nor low-class. Yet individual people who do MLM can be either. This web site (“First-Class MLM”) is here to teach the principles of how to build your MLM business using First-Class methods.
I’ll be the first to admit that I have seen MLM (network marketing) done poorly and in a way that I personally wouldn’t do it. That doesn’t mean those MLM businesses didn’t make good money doing it that way – many have. But at what cost? A band of great elephant hunters may be effective at killing all the elephants in their area – but at what cost? Anything that damages the whole isn’t good. This goes back to my discussion on what makes an ethical business.
I’ve done MLM (Network Marketing) in a way that is very professional and very ethical; thus First-Class. If you study “First-Class MLM” closely I believe you will agree that there isn’t a more ethical business model on Earth.
A person who is doing First-Class MLM would follow these basic guidelines:
1. They would tell the truth
2. They would only represent a company that has products or services that honestly makes people’s lives better.
3. They would be genuinely interested in a prospect’s success with their product or service – not just in making a profit.
4. They would know the company’s product line and how it differs from similar products. This makes you valuable to consumers.
5. They would be able to get customers and have not less than 20.
6. They would know the MLM industry and be able to explain it simply and without hype.
7. They would know their MLM company and be able to explain it simply and without hype.
8. They would effectively train people they sponsored to sell the product/service. The true test of training is,“Can they do it after their training?”
9. They would effectively train people they sponsored to recruit other distributors.
10. They would ensure the people they sponsored could train their downline effectively.
11. They would not sponsor anyone unless they were willing to train them.
12. They would do what they promise.
13. They would only take part in activities that reflect well on the whole of the MLM industry.
14. They would make valuable suggestions to their company so the product line is the very best it can be.
