Reasons People Fail in Multi-Level Marketing

Multi-Level Marketing can be a profitable business platform, however, there are ten reasons why many people fail in Multi-Level Marketing.


Multi-level Marketing is indeed one of the fastest-growing and profitable businesses today. It is in fact, an excellent way for anyone to start a small business with little investment, no overhead, and of course, high profit margins. It’s possible for anyone to get up and running with an online business in just a few hours.

 Sounds like an easy way to make money, doesn’t it? Especially when you compare it to other offline small business ventures.

However, it’s interesting to know that multi-level marketing failures still greatly outnumber those who have succeeded in internet marketing.  There is a 98% failure rate, which means there is only a 2% Success rate.

You hear stories all the time of someone who is making  $10,000 a month at internet marketing, yet there are hundreds of untold stories of those who failed to make any profit at all, or they only made a few dollars and then quit.

Why is it that so many fail in Multi-Level Marketing when the “potential” to succeed is so high?

1. No Established Business Plan.

No matter what type of business you are running you will need a business plan with well-defined goals.

a.  What are your short-term and long-term goals?
b.  What steps will need to take to meet those goals?
c.   Write out your plan and review it frequently.

2. Failure to follow the business plan.


A plan means nothing if you don’t follow it. Work the plan every single day. Revise it if necessary, but don’t detract from it.

3. Making Unrealistic goals.

Many mlm marketing failures comes from trying to do too much too fast. You are not going to create the ultimate web site for golf lovers overnight.  Everything takes time to establish.  Start small and build on it, adding content daily.

4. Lack of correct knowledge.

To be a successful multi-level marketer you first need to learn internet marketing. Find a successful mentor who is willing to help you and you will be way ahead of the crowd.

5. Failing To invest in your business.

Be aware that you won’t get any support or very much web traffic  with a free web host. Many times, the best ebooks, scripts, and tools are the ones that cost you money. It’s possible for you to run an online business for next to nothing, but you’ll achieve faster and more profitable results by investing in the right tools.

6. Thinking this: “If I build it, they will come.”

You may have the most comprehensive and informative website on weight loss in the world, but if you don’t promote your site and work to drive traffic to it, no one will know about it.

There are many ways to drive traffic to your website. You should be investing in the usage of several of them.

7. Having a Lack of Patience.

Understand that you will not be making $10,000 a month when you begin. Multi-level marketing is no get rich quick scheme. It takes time and testing to build your web traffic and increase your conversion rate. At the beginning you may actually lose money. This is the place where too many people give up without giving their business time to grow.

8. Choosing the Wrong Niche.

Find a niche but make sure it’s profitable first. Too many times people create the product first then try to figure out how to sell it. Make sure you find out what the people want, then give or sell it to them.

9.  Uniqueness.

Stand out from the crowd and get noticed. Know your competition and do whatever they do.  Do it better or do something totally different.

10. No level of Commitment.


In order to be successful, it’s imperative that you become committed to success.  Understand that behind every success story, there are many hours of work and dedication. You’ll need drive and determination if you want to be the next multi-level success story everyone is talking about.

Remembering these ten reasons most people fail will help you  become more determined to become that success story.

    That's quite a list Angela and I agree with them all. You left out one key reason why people fail in MLM. Here it is, you ready for it. They don't have a WHY and another thing your WHY isn't about money. It's deeper and it takes time to do this because personal development must takes place.

    YOU must focus on you more then your business to find your why. When you do it things will begin to happen and people will be attracted to you because of the person you have become and your business will grow. Relationships is the key and you must not skip this step. It's critical to having a successful MLM/Network Marketing business. Happy to share your post on Facebook and Twitter. Have a great day and weekend.
