Free Company Web-shop?
Yes of course! After all as a distributor you have to abide with all the detailed company descriptions about your product. The company normally has checked it all out legally and whatever there is on their home page should be safe.
- This is one big reason why it should make sense for any company to give their distributors a web-shop and since the distributors are doing all the advertising so that the products are turned it would be a fair sharing of efforts between the company and the distributors.
So why are there so many companies out there who don’t do this?
As it is know that most network marketing companies hire their software/database and don’t own it – well additional web-shops might be a cost factor for them and so they charge their distributors – very likely even making profit on the web-shop.
- The second issue about not owning the software/database is that very often the small print contains clauses that the software company owns the data base – I wrote about this before.
Another reason may be a commission plan issue – as in a binary plan, for instance, where the payments can only be made if an adequate number of distributors fail at building a network marketing business – it may well be a welcome additional income for the company to have a fee on the web-shop – paid not only by those who make money, abut also by the big number of people who will fail in their venture of building their network marketing business successfully.
The argument of the companies may be “it would cost you a lot more to do it yourself” and that in view of perhaps policies and procedures which even contain restrictions as to internet marketing. Yes – you read correctly – this still exists. there are companies who do not like major marketing activities on line – most odd reasons given.
So spinning this thread further if you are looking at a company which will be charging you for the web-shop or perhaps even charging you twice – also taking money for your genealogy report, etc., then I guess you better look twice:
- read the policies and procedures very intently and also check out the pros and cons of the commission plan. the entire package may well not be what you want to put your effort in for. After all you want to have success at building your network marketing business today!
