“Being a stay at home mother and also wanting part time work”. Some of us have been there before. With several job options that can be conveniently managed with this situation, is network marketing one of them? Network marketing is a kind of business model that relies on downline distributor networks being formed. It works like this: a seller or distributor for a company product line recruits several other distributors or sellers under their downline. Usually, the reward comes in commissions or sales profit by them or their downline from recruitment of other distributors, or sometimes both.
The advantages of this for a stay at home mother seeking part time work are immediately apparent. Some of these include:
The Schedule Is Very Flexible
The best part about being a stay at home mom is that you can get to decided when and how to go about your sales schedule. This flexibility means you still have most of your time on your hands and your routines are not very much affected or altered.
There Is A More Flexible Decision Making
As a part time seller who does not have to show up to the office or chase down specific clients, or even have to follow the company sales routine strictly, you have more freedom of decision making than a regular seller would otherwise have. The advantage of this is that you can bring your own business and sales, making ideas to play. You can choose just how best you want to go about your sales in a manner that brings you profit, is fun for you, and also very compatible with your schedule and routine.
It Is A Good Source Of Income
Network marketing carries the potential of being a decent source of income if done right. If the product is one that is likely to be in demand within your local area, or otherwise within your digital and physical reach, then it could turn out a real boon for you. When added to the fact of its flexibility of schedule and approach, it becomes a desirable option for a stay at home mom. Network marketing may even provide the opportunity for passive income earned, where a seller receives a part of the profits made by sellers within their downline. If your downline is sufficiently expanded, you may get to a stage where you will be earning quite a bit by way of passive income.
It Has A Low Entry Cost
You don’t usually need to expend much by way of resources to get started in network marketing, for example to join BE International it will only cost RM60. It, therefore, is one of the easiest business ventures a stay at home mom could conveniently engage in. A fact that counts in its favor.
Possible Downsides To Network Marketing
1. It May Take A While To Expand Adequately
Network marketing thrives on building networks. These are not always easy to build, and it may take a while before you can expand yours adequately.
2. You Might Not Be Selling The ‘right’ Product
Network marketing can be a boon if the new release or product is the least popular one within your reach. Sales might be slower to make anything worthwhile from it. But you’re stuck with this option because there aren’t other options available. Such experience can sometimes be frustrating.
Network marketing is an opportunity to make sales and earn an income within a less rigid environment and schedule, which is an appealing job alternative for stay at home moms looking for a part time job. However, it is essential to do some prior checking and try it yourself to see if you’re a fit. Like every job, not everything is a fit for everyone, but you can try to make it work for you.
