MLM Does Not Work – 5 Reasons Why

Things about which to talk:

Let’s be frank. If your car didn’t start 95% of the time you tried to drive it…

If the lights in your house did not come on 95% of the time you hit the switch…

If your toilet failed to flush 95% of the time you tried to flush…

You would say these were failures, wouldn’t you?

Approximately 95% of MLM Distributors fail.  They join an MLM opportunity, enthusiastic, hoping that they have finally found the answer to their financial problems. They are told that they can become financially free if they are coach able and follow the Plan.

Typically, 3-6 months later, they drop out, in worse financial shape than when they joined.

MLM does not work!

Now that we have established that it does not work, let’s look at the reasons and see if we can find an answer to this dilemma.

The basic premise of MLM is that it is the answer to the average person’s financial problems, the “Poor Man’s Franchise” some call it.

Distributors are harangued with stories of average people making as much in a month as they make in a year.

They are shown pictures of successful MLMers posing next to expensive sports cars, of palatial houses, that can all be theirs if they believe, work hard and Never, Never quit!

Why doesn’t their dream come true?

Here are the 5 reasons MLM does not work:

  1. 95% of the American public are followers, not leaders
  2. Most have no business skills and will never own their own business
  3. 90% would rather be eaten alive by an alligator than speak in public
  4. The average American has no experience in sales, marketing or promotion
  5. The average MLM company does not give effective marketing methods or systems to their Distributors

What those facts tell us boils down to this:  Ninety five percent of Americans would not be interested in starting their own marketing or promotion business, which; since MLM requires these essential skills explains a lot.

The first problem we have no control over. It explains why 95% of Americans are unable to retire at 65, after working 40 years and earning millions of dollars.

The main answer to why the dilemma of why MLM does not work lies in addressing the fifth fact, the antiquated, ineffective marketing methods used by MLM companies.

They tell their Distributors to duplicate the very same methods that result in a 95% failure rate!

Distributors are told to attack their “warm market,” friends, family members, co-workers, etc.  Unfortunately but predictably, 95 % of them will not be interested in joining the opportunity or will fail in 3-6 months.

When they have run out of their warm market, they are told about the “3 foot rule”, attack anyone who comes within 3 feet of you as you go about your daily business.

Now, who are they going to run into?  The average American who has no interest in starting their own marketing or promotion business and will not sell anything, DUH!

All the while the increasingly frustrated Distributor is spending money; on company marketing material, on flyers, on attending company sponsored events and on unqualified “Leads.”  He is getting little return on his investment and eventually spends himself out of the business in 3-6 months.

MLM does not work.  What is the answer?  How can MLM be made to work?

MLM companies must give effective, professional marketing tools to their Distributors.  In these days, that means Internet Marketing tools.

Internet Tools that will allow distributors to quickly, easily and inexpensively sift through the 95% who are unqualified to build a target market of those who are interested and qualified to run their own businesses.

Once this target market is established, the System must qualify them further.  Are they interested enough to spend money to build their business?  Here the Distributor should get a chance to recover some of their marketing expense when their prospects purchase business building tools from them.

Advertising now becomes a profit center instead of an expense.

The resultant pool of interested prospects who have bought services or products to enhance their businesses, are the diamonds that will have a 10 times greater chance of being successful in MLM than the public.

Amazingly, many of these qualified prospects will contact the person providing them with these tools, as they regard them as helpful and knowledgeable for consultation and advice.  As long as the Distributor does not immediately try to Shanghai the prospect into his business, he has a very good chance of actually bringing him into his business, simply because it is human nature to want to associate one’s self with a leader.

Until the MLM companies wake up to these facts, the individual Distributor is going to have to take matters into his own hands and learn Internet Marketing himself if he is serious about succeeding in MLM.

Make money in the coffee business – be the solution not the problem

What business are you in?

Albert Einstein

Many people in the coffee business have it wrong – they think we are in the coffee business. They get hyper-focused on issues related to coffee. They think that great coffee will save their business that the next latest greatest trend in coffee will swoop in and save their failing store.

This is not unusual – it happens in a lot of businesses. People forget they exist for the customer first. Without thinking first about what the customer wants, they will eventually fail. Customer satisfaction is why we exist. It’s what we make money from and how we grow and succeed.

Problem solving

I’ve said this to people many people over the years, and I’ll repeat it here. The way we make money is by solving people’s problems. The bigger and more complicated the problems we solve, the more money we make. Need a hole dug? Solve it with a few bucks and a cash-starved teenager. Need a solid piece of beautiful and well-built furniture? More complex, but can be solved by a craftsman with the proper knowledge and experience in furniture building. Have a brain tumor you need removed? OK, now we are talking an incredibly complex problem needing the finest of surgeons with a multi-six-figure education, years of experience and a team of people to help.

Small problem, small price or big problem, big price, nothing changes. But still, all the transactions were goods and/or services for cash. All of them were giving a customer what they wanted or needed in exchange for cash.

If we are not in the coffee business what business are we in?

1.       We sell Organic Coffee No caffeine. Yes, I know many people call it coffee, but let’s face it. We sell the opiate of the masses. People, companies and nations need it to work.
2.      Meeting space. Pastors, architects, community groups, business leaders, women’s literary groups, book clubs, newcomers clubs and more. Sometimes I joke I’m going to give away product free and charge $10/hour for seating.
3.      Community. We are the Cheers of our community and a “pond” that people from all walks of life swim in. High school kids, senior citizens, college students, moms-with-kids, business people, pastors, politicians, down-and-out and corporate folk. They all mix and mingle every day at our giant water cooler.
4.      Emotional welfare. Not only is caffeine a euphoric, the emotional level of many is bolstered by hanging out, studying, people-watching, getting work done, all at a place where “you need people to be alone”. One of my favorite senior customers lost her husband 6 years ago. She’s in our shop everyday because she “needs to get out and see people and be social”. I know she loves coffee, but that’s secondary to her need for socialization.
5.      The Third Place. Everyone needs a place outside of home and work they can call their own and many coffee shops fill that need.
6.      Fuel. Oh yes, we do sell food and beverage at our store, and let’s face it: our bodies need fuel every day.
7.      Great Organic coffee. Yes, we actually have customers who love, are fanatical about and demand great coffee. But honestly, they are not the largest slice of our customer pie. As a matter of fact I tell students at our Batista school this. Probably 95+ percent of our customers really could care less about what happens behind the bar. They just want a good cup of coffee.

People go where they love to go

I know, an obvious statement, but one I think is overlooked. My store doesn’t exist to please me. It exists to please the customer. I’ve seen too many coffee businesses that exist to please the owner, or maybe better said they exist, but forget to please the customer. If a customer likes a store, they’ll come. If they don’t, they won’t. It’s so much more than great coffee; it’s an emotional decision.

This week I had a meeting with a potential client at our store. The meeting was at 2PM and when they arrived one of my staff called back to my office to tell me. I said, “Go ahead and get them a drink and then have them grab a seat“. My staff member said, “No problem on the drink, but there aren’t any seats available“. Mind you this was at two in the afternoon, we don’t do lunch and we have over a hundred seats in our store.

Why were we that busy?

Although the fall is typically a busy time of the year, our store is pretty consistent. It is not unusual for us to be that busy during the day. And though the name of our business is JP’s Coffee, not everyone at the store right then was drinking coffee. Some had coffee or a latte, others had a smoothie or hot chocolate, and still others a bagel and glass of water. But they were all there, meeting with friends, doing business, studying, reading, taking a break from work or socializing with those around them.

So what am I really selling?

I once went to a coffee shop that had zero atmosphere. It had white walls, one picture centered on each wall and gave the most sterile vibe I’ve ever felt. Needless to say, they didn’t last more than a year in business. Was it because they had bad coffee? I think not. Poor service, I doubt it. Poor location or maybe that was a small part of it. But most of all, they just weren’t a place people wanted to go. They weren’t solving the problems, or at least enough of the problems coffee shop customers wanted solved.

Success comes to those who solve problems. In the coffee business that means being a place people want to go to. It’s about being the right place in the right place.  People want to connect, to feel good, to have problems solved and have an emotional connection.

What does your community need you to be? What kind of place are your locals longing for, wanting you to be so they can connect with you and love to go there all the time? Be that place and you‘ll make money. It’s as simple as that.

Welcome to the Ganoderma Goldmine

Why “Healthy Coffee“?

Although there has been some controversy surrounding the subject, most health practitioners would assert that drinking coffee is not conducive for health for a number of reasons. In addition to the adverse health conditions that long-term coffee addiction can cause, the caffeine contained in coffee can cause a host of negative side-effects. Despite its generally acknowledged adverse health effects, coffee is the second most consumed beverage in the world, and most people who drink it consider it a necessity rather than a luxury, making it the most popular unhealthy addiction in the world!

But because is so addictive, it is unrealistic to expect people to quit drinking it without offering an effective alternative to those who depend on coffee’s stimulant properties to help them wake up and stay alert, which is why Ganoderma extract enhanced healthy coffee was introduced a few years ago. Ganoderma Lucidum mushroom is a potent medicinal herb that can decrease the adverse effects of coffee and add numerous health-supporting benefits, making it the ultimate solution for transforming this unhealthy addiction into a healthy one. In fact, Ganoderma-enhanced healthy coffee has enabled numerous coffee addicts to reduce their dependency and intake of coffee. Additionally, many people have reported significant “coincidental” health improvements simply by replacing their regular coffee with Ganoderma healthy coffee and tea products.

“Healthy Coffee” enhanced with Ganoderma Lucidum extract has been gaining popularity over the past five years amongst coffee consumers and entrepreneurs interested in home-based money making opportunities. Although there is a plethora of Ganoderma coffee products and companies to choose from, I am willing to stake my reputation on the Ganoderma products and companies presented on this website for the reasons stated below.

Why Is Ganoderma Lucidum So Special?

In general, Ganoderma functions as an adaptogen. An adaptogen is a natural substance found in a few rare plants and herbs that shield the body against the impacts of stress. They are unique nutrients that work at a cellular level to restore, re-balance and re-energize stressed cells and organs. They are powerful agents that reverse abnormal function to normal. Adaptogens are not drugs and they have no adverse side effects. They are not available in the food we eat, and must be taken as supplements. Among natural supplements available, adaptogens are considered as the most important in their role to improve health and longevity. Ganoderma is considered to be the most powerful adaptogen ever discovered!

Why Is Ganoderma Lucidum in Our Products So Special? 

As a life-long alternative health advocate and Naturopathic, I strive to offer the very best reliable information health products available. I have sought out the highest quality Ganoderma Lucidum healthy coffee, tea, and hot chocolate products and supplements available. The Ganoderma products promoted on this site contain the highest grade of 100% Certified Organic, log-grown Ganoderma Lucidum at the most economical prices. In addition, the Ganoderma products offered through this site contain extract are obtained by an exclusive patented processing technology, referred to as “Cracked Spore Extraction”, which produces Ganoderma extract that is more nutrient dense and about 16 times more potent than that of the competitors. Read more about Ganoderma Lucidum health benefits.

The Healthy Coffee Opportunity 

Because of their superior quality, most people who sample of our products notice “coincidental, reporting an overall improved sense of well-being, mental clarity and sustained energy levels in addition to a host of other benefits.  Additionally,our company compensation plan has made more people more money in the shortest amount of time, and is the fastest growing MLM company in history.
