Network Marketing As A Business

Network Marketing As A Business

Many people often ask me how Network Marketing can be a business?  I often wonder the very same question. How could it be a business?  Network marketing is a method of marketing. Right? Are we not talking about  an individual marketing style?  I would say YES! Network marketing is simply one specific way to market a business or opportunity.

Network Marketing As A Business- Impossible!

If you agree with me and apparently Wikipedia. Now you can take a look at network marketing as a function of a business. Many business models use this type marketing.  You will find every product and service that you can imagine being marketed using networking.  You may also have heard the terms multi level marketing or direct sales.  Both of these terms are commonly used interchangeably.  So it would be very difficult to say network marketing is my business. Rather you would most likely say I use network marketing to market my business.

Network Marketing Is An Option In Business

Network marketing is a technique used to market a business.  You could even use networking to sell a product or a service and begin to create a business using this type of marketing. Think about a simple networking event that you may attended recently.  Or maybe you are single and have attended a live mixer. These types of events are a great example of networking. Now imagine that as a business owner you could start to market a product or service to those individuals.  That is the idea of network marketing.
