Is This Network Marketing?

“How can I earn big money at home in my spare time?”

A few years ago, my wife and I went to a small two-day conference in Houston, Texas. Though I had been a customer of The AIM Companies for over ten years, I had never been to any type of meeting. I really liked their nutritional supplements and wanted to learn how to market them.

Sunday afternoon, we left the conference of a hundred people or so and I was a bit disappointed. Not a single word was said about how to make money, build a business or market their products. The entire weekend, the speakers concentrated on weight loss, health and nutrition.

I later found out AIM does have a few online webinars about marketing their nutritional supplements. But for the most part, they focus on health and nutrition - not kool-aid drinking, stand-in-your-chair, money-making meetings. The AIM Companies is a no nonsense business opportunity.

(Why do most network marketing companies have large doses of motivational psychology? How many carpenters, accountants or veterinarians need to attend motivational seminars to do their jobs? How many other professions come with a fear of rejection and a reluctance to do the job?)

(Network marketing done the right way is first and foremost a disqualification process. You quickly and courteously eliminate people who do not want your offer. You are only looking for people who want, need and can afford your product or service - right now. Why waste time with low probability prospects?)

As for me, I concentrate on getting customers. I use this website to bring information about BarleyLife and BarleyLife Xtra directly to people who want to learn more about it. The AIM Companies compensates me to do that, instead of setting up retail stores.

Anyway, I do not hype or hound anyone, in case you’re worried about that. Fewer than one in one hundred people want to do any kind of sales, so why annoy them and take a chance on losing a good customer?

I also do not try to convince someone to become a customer. People do not like being pressured. I simply find people that believe nutrition matters. (In other words, I sell nuts to squirrels. I don't try to persuade dolphins that nuts are delicious.)

The Bottom Line: If buying nutritional supplements from a network marketing company makes you feel at all uncomfortable, then you shouldn't order BarleyLife Xtra or any other products from The AIM Companies.

P.S. My mother owns a restaurant. My father owned a remodeling business. My uncle owns a print company. My grandfather owned a fishing tackle supply business. So I grew up in a family of small business owners.

These early influences are what led me to being in business for myself. And because I've always been interested in health and nutrition, marketing BarleyLife® Xtra and other AIM health supplements is a good fit for me.

P.P.S. In the last fifty years, there have been over 60,000 network marketing companies. Only fifty of them have celebrated a ten year anniversary. The AIM Companies has observed their 40th year of being in business.

Note: Ninety-seven percent of all network marketing companies fail within the first five years. - Forbes Magazine
