Have You Fallen for the Network Marketing Hype?

Who doesn’t want to own their own business, be their own boss and make a fortune doing what they love? Everyone wants a piece of their own “American Dream” and many are finding that network marketing is the way to achieve this. Unfortunately, there is now a lot of hype surrounding network marketing and this leads to losses for unsuspecting people that buy into the hype.

The hype can give you false expectations about what will really come from your network marketing business. It can also give you a false sense of reality of what will actually be required of you in operating your business. This can lead to serious failure. When you go into a business without a clear picture of what will be expected of you and what will be needed for the business, you can’t likely expect to succeed.

How can you know if you have fallen for the hype? Did you start out in your internet marketing or network marketing business with high hopes? Were you walking on clouds thinking you’d make a fortune, retire in a mansion someplace and live happily ever after? Are you finding it difficult now just to pay off the debts you’ve incurred from this business venture, let alone anything else? If so, then you may have fallen victim to network marketing hype.

Have you been told “anyone can do it” and find yourself feeling foolish when you fail? Know that not everyone was born to be a network marketer and not all network marketers are the same. Some people will have to try harder, study more and stretch the boundaries of their comfort zones. Other people seem to be born salesmen.

The hype will tell you anyone can do it but truth will tell you otherwise. There is a lot of hype out there in the network marketing world. This is why so many people are venturing down this career path. Unfortunately, many of them are going unprepared. This hype is what leads to failure and this is why it’s important to separate the fact from fiction.

What can you do if you fell for the hype? The good news is that it’s not too late to make things right with your network marketing business, no matter what stage in the process you are at. Once you learn the truth about network marketing versus the hype, you will be better prepared for making business plans and decisions.
