WHAT IS MULTI-LEVEL MARKETING?
Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) is a marketing technique many pioneer organizations make use of. MLM is also known in the name of the Network Marketing. The consumers can purchase goods from both online or at a physical retail store. MLMs use these Independent Representatives (IR) to buy inventory and sell the product to social media. However, in MLM, success is measured by sales and mainly by how many people a representative can recruit to become MLM representatives.
These representatives are usually categorized into teams depending on region and report to their ‘Upline’ or the head recruiters. This position is also be called as ‘Sponsor’. As the ‘Downline’ expands through recruitment, the upline gets richer since they earn a percentage of their recruit’s sales.
