Network Marketing via Jim Cramer

May 16, 2011

Network marketing (or direct sales or multi-level marketing or whatever you want to call it) often gets a bad rap. I won’t get into why. You know why.

So for those of us who have made marketing a product and getting paid for it a part of our lives, tidbits like this video are powerful.

And exciting.
And share-worthy.
And even…reassuring.

A quick talk from famous financial and investment personality, Jim Cramer, it assumes a few things about the network marketing industry that I wish it didn’t. Namely, that it’s mostly made up of women (not true) and that it’s comprised of only companies that are built on the home-party model (thank God, not true). Those assumptions are made by the examples he uses, which is too bad.

Anyway, it’s great that Jim is talking about it, nonetheless. Here it is:

Vemma, the company I’m involved with, is much more of a network or referral marketing company than direct sales, as its members don’t sell product out of their homes, collect money, etc. The company does all of that for them (err, us!). However, we all full under the Direct Sales Association banner and therefore, we’re in this together.

Thanks for the comments, Jim. As with practically any business these days, we’re in the relationship business. And you’re making our job of building those relationships just a little bit easier.


P.S. Who watches this guy regularly? Do you? He’s a ham! Where he gets all of that energy…good gracious.

P.P.S. Oh! Maybe he gets it here! Ha ha ha. Hehee. Heh heh heh.

P.P.P.S. Shame. I got none.
