What You Should Know About Traditional MLM Companies
While many of these companies have been around for a long time, they have a common drawback – they hold on to traditional standards (or limitations). That’s what sets the “traditional” network marketing companies apart from the internet based MLM companies.
Based on my personal research (and experience in a several traditional MLM companies), the internet-based MLM companies embrace technology more and allow representatives to use the internet to promote their businesses. This has allowed me to recruit business seekers without even picking up the phone or having to go to meetings. This is a huge plus for those that are trying to fit their business into their busy schedule. You can build your business anytime that you want – even when most people are asleep!
