network marketing is an often misunderstood and maligned 50 year-old industry.
It is also a very high growth industry and one that is starting to attract
professionals in large numbers. That's today, but what will the future look
like? Well, I don't have a crystal ball, but based on current trends,
technological predictions, and maybe a little of my own fantasy, here is my
vision of the future of network marketing.
drive into your driveway in your new Nexxus, which you purchased through the
Virtual Shopping Network, a network marketing company. Your perimeter security
system, the latest technology from Quantum Security turns on the outer and inner
lights. Once inside your house, you first check tel-e-mail messages (a
combination of e-mail, telephone messages, voice mail, and regular mail), on
your MicroSoph internet messaging center (owned by the AnWeigh Corporation - the
largest network marketing company in the world). There you find several messages
from friends, family members, and of course all of your business messages. As a
network marketer in the 21st century, you rely totally on the internet to build
fantasy view of network marketing? Maybe, but probably not too far off. Based on
the growth of computer technology and increases in the use of the internet, by
the year 2000 computers will be as common place as VCR's and everyone who has a
computer will be "surfin' the net." Because of the natural networking
capability of the internet, the match with network marketing is perfect. What
better way to build networks then on a network. In the 21st Century the power
will no longer go to the rich, the famous, or those with the information, but
rather to those who have the largest networks.
believe that with the power of network marketing combined with the power of the
internet (and the information highway), we will purchase nearly everything from
network marketing companies. All things will be available in virtual malls for
you to view and purchase. Instead of going down to the local grocery store, you
will tap into the internet and shop in a virtual store - select a basket, roll
it down the aisles (which will look exactly like those in a real world store),
select products (you can even look at the labels) and place them in your basket,
at the check out counter where the virtual cashier will accept your PIN and
automatically deduct the amount from your account at the Virtual Bank of
America. Your groceries will be delivered the same day from a local warehouse.
grocery store will be operated by a network marketing company and you, as a
member shopper, will be assigned to another member. That member will receive a
bonus on everything you purchase. Whether you are purchasing groceries,
clothing, automobiles, or airline tickets, each purchase you make through the
internet shopping system, will result in a network marketer getting credit and
receiving a bonus. Everything is simple and automatic, with delivery within a
day or two and a 100% money back guarantee.
it is now, network marketers in the future will work from their home office.
However, due to advances in video conferencing, virtual reality, and the
power/speed of computer systems, they will rarely leave their homes to do
business. Instead of weekly meetings in their home or a local hotel, net workers
will conduct massive meetings via video conferencing on the internet.
Prospective distributors will tap in from all over the world. It's efficient and
effective, plus it eliminates traffic and pollution.
of having a job and working network marketing in your spare time, networking
will be your full-time occupation. You will build a network in a network
marketing holding company that represents hundreds of network marketing
companies, which gives you access to many high quality products at wholesale
pricing and keeps your network diversified. This protects you from downturns and
fluctuations in the different markets. All purchases funnel back into the
holding company's massive computer system, which scans for group volumes each
day and pays you a daily bonus. This bonus is automatically placed in your
electronic bank account.
think of the freedom you will have. Your downline distributors all buying
different products from themselves and attracting new distributors through
electronic marketing on the internet. Each distributor will have his/her own
electronic marketing piece with real time video, audio, and text. A true
multi-media show, which can be sent directly to prospective distributors through
the internet or loaded on a web page or autoresponder for easy access.
marketing will become the most efficient way to distribute products or services
and will dominate the world of distribution. Since the business can be started
with very little upfront investment, has a very low downside risk, can be
operated efficiently from the home, and has unlimited residual income potential,
network marketing will become the business opportunity of choice throughout the
world. There will be two classes of people, those who have large networks and
those who don't!
the movie The Graduate, a young Dustin Hoffman was told that the future was in
plastics. I'm here to tell you that the future is in ...
marketing on the internet.
