Celebrity endorsements — You can get paid to promote products

posted in: MLM, network marketing | 6

Have you ever seen a celebrity on a television commercial and said, “I wonder how much they’re getting paid for this?”

You can bet it’s a bunch of cash. Perhaps even more than most people will make in a lifetime.

Many companies think this is a great way to advertise their product. They believe that the celebrity’s endorsement will bring enough buyers to more than make up for the money they’re paying.

Now, suppose there was a company that was willing to pay you to promote their products. Good news — there are plenty of them.

That’s what network marketing companies do. They pay their distributors to promote and recommend their products. Instead of paying huge amounts of money to celebrities, MLM companies divide their income with their reps.

More good news — the better a promoter you are, the more you get paid. When you recommend the company’s products to people who use them, the company sends you a check.

Even more good news — nearly all network marketing companies have great products. They have to have good products, because they rely on word-of-mouth advertising. If people don’t like the products, they don’t recommend and promote them.

The key is to find products that people already want and promote them. All you have to do if connect the people and the products.

So next time you see one of those celebrities on television, think about how nice it’d be to get paid for promoting products.

    A young man I spoke with the other day thought celebrities is the only way to go. When I explained to him how one person can influence another and they in turn can influence another and another he was amazed. He’d never thought one person could change the world. I should have sent him to your blog. It’s an excellent explanation that would have been easy for him to follow.
    Thanks for posting !

    So many network marketing companies use celebrities to promote their products or services. Can you imagine what their advertising budget must be??! Unfortunately, many online marketers are enamored with celebrities and think it’s so “cool” to align themselves with some well known celebrity. Guess what’s NOT so “cool”? That means a whole lot less money going into their pockets!

    You’ve made some really valid points in this blog post, Steve. You’re words of wisdom are going to help network marketers to use sound judgement and make better decisions in choosing a home based business.

    Melanie,

    It’s the same way with companies that have corporate jets and lavish offices. Most distributors don’t realize it, but that means smaller bonus checks.

    Thanks for the comment.
