Tips for Choosing a Right Network Marketing Business in India

The advantages of having a network marketing business for your life are tremendous. This business rewards the succeeded net worker with time freedom, financial freedom & on-going passive income. 

Network Marketing can be a great way to make a Passive IncomePerhaps, one of the most attractive aspects of network marketing business is the extremely low barrier to entry. 

If you were to consider starting a normal traditional business, you'd be talking about some sort of office space or shop space, one or two employees at the very least, some kind of inventory, maybe renovations, and lots of other expenses.  

The Network marketing, on the other hand, actually allows you to start a business at an extremely less cost and You don’t have to spend money and time developing your own product, setting-up show-room, or getting government formalities etc. Of course, you have to pay for certain things, like a small registration fee while joining, purchase of products at discounted price , purchase of optional tools that will help quick start your business.
If you join the right company, you can earn a steady flow of commissions every month without a lot of extra work on your part. Once you've decided  to pursue an additional career in Network Marketing in India, your first & most important work is in finding a genuine company with which to associate yourself.

How to identify a Good Company ?

The following tips can guide & help you choose the Right company that are right for you
  • 1.Is the Company an IDSA member?.                                   
The "Integrity of the company" itself be the first thing you should check. Integrity means a steadfast adherence to a strict moral or ethical code. Skip this first step, If you choose a company, which is a member of Indian Direct Selling Association  (IDSA), as it was already tested & also the company has pledged to abide by and uphold the IDSA Code of Ethics is designed to protect both customers of the products and those who market the company’s products & services. Idsa recognized Direct Selling Companies do not fall within the mischief of "The Prize,Chits and Money Circulation Schemes(Banning Act) 1978" 
  • 2.Is it a product based business opportunity?.
In India, money circulation schemes are  illegal & banned through "The Prize,Chits and Money Circulation Schemes(Banning Act) 1978". Every business transaction needs a product or service, otherwise you might be placed in the victim row one day. Apart from law, If you want to build a Huge & Strong network for life, better choose a company, that have high quality products range in FMCGcategory. Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) are the products which are used or sold quickly. It creates you ongoing passive residual income, once the network is built. In India, the FMCG sector have a high potential growth rate of more-than 50% every year. The FMCG market is already the fourth largest market in India & the best in Indian Direct selling market. What makes the potential for FMCG is the low operating cost, stable distribution networks along with the fast growing population, which the industry regards as a potential market. Amway, Avon Beauty, Herbalife, Hindustan unilever, Modicare, Oriflame are some of the major Fmcg companies involved in Indian direct selling industry
  • 3. Is the Sales & marketing Plan attractive?.
Join a company that pay two-tier or multi-level commissions. One of the most important things when considering becoming distributor with any direct selling company is to understand their commission pay structure. In One-tier or Single level commission pay structure, you'll get paid  a certain percentage of the sale generated by you only. But Two-tier or Multi-levels commission pay structure enables you to not only earn commissions on your own sales but also on the sales of  people who you introduce to your network. It is possible to make a significant amount of passive income from this two-tier type of commission pay. Please refer the sales & marketing plan of the company.
  •  4.Are the products attractive & quality with the scope of repeat sales?  
Join a company that offer a line of products so that you can always have more chances of earn  huge commissions when your customers & your team customers come back and purchase other services or products. Also check that products are manufactured in India.
  •  5.Does the company gives you business knowledge?.

Join a company that offer their distributors a great marketing support & product trainings at free of cost.
Product trainings, Success seminars and Business meetings are often offered to provide consultants with support and guidance. With some companies your sponsor, the person who brings you in to the company may be your sole source of training and support. If the company offers training, your sponsor may offer addition support above and beyond what the company provides.
And above all , 
  • 6.Is there any standard system to support your business? 
Join a company which is supported by proven successful country-wide educational support system. This system helps you to learn & grow your business network & also enables you to expand your business in other states, cities, & towns with out leaving your place. We have learned that having the right systems are important in network marketing. However, in Network marketing, it really needs to be a simple system. Because you need to be able to duplicate what you are doing to your team members. While you may not find this system from the company itself, be sure and discuss it with your sponsor and others who have been successful. Your sponsors success is directly relative to your own - so believe, your sponsor or upline leader is the right person to shares his/her tips.
Direct selling companies like M/s. Amway India, M/s. Avon Beauty India Private Ltd., M/s. Herbalife, M/s. Oriflame, M/s. Tupperware India, M/s. Surinder India have obtained necessary government approval from Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB).

According to the Indian Direct Selling Association (IDSA), there are three fundamentals to a legitimate direct selling business. These are:
Low entry barrier: When distributors sign up, sales kits are sold at cost. There is no other investment required and distributors are not forced to buy training material or sales aids. This is because companies should not be dependent on selling the business opportunity alone, nor should they resort to merely selling sales aids at exorbitant prices while awarding commissions.

No inventory loading: Direct sellers make money by simply booking orders, not committing to a substantial investment that may cause financial distress to the distributor subsequently. You should be able to buy, say, a single sachet of shampoo, if you think that's all you will be able to sell.

Low exit barrier: Protection is given to distributors who may want to get out of the business.
Check out these fundamentals before you sign up for a distributorship. Or you could lose money, your valuable time. And yes, don't give your friends the feeling you are meeting them only to push your products. Or you could lose your social bonds.

The bottom line is, if you want to live like a Prince or Princess in a fairy tale, then use common sense, work hard and work smart to achieve your goals.
I wish you all the best in life!
Hopefully looking forward for your valuable comments and suggestions !

A healthy life depends on a healthy planet...

Posted by smartindians Wednesday, 17 August 2011

A healthy life depends on a healthy planet...

The Earth's climate has changed many times during the planet's history, with events ranging from ice ages to long periods of warmth. Historically, natural factors such as volcanic eruptions, changes in the Earth's orbit, and the amount of energy released from the Sun have affected the Earth's climate.     Beginning late in the 18th century, human activities associated with the Industrial Revolution have also changed the composition of the atmosphere and therefore very likely are influencing the Earth's climate.

For the past 200 years, the burning of fossil fuels, such as coal and oil, and deforestation have caused the concentrations of heat-trapping "greenhouse gases" to increase significantly in our atmosphere. These gases prevent heat from escaping to space, somewhat like the glass panels of a greenhouse.

Greenhouse gases are necessary to life as we know it, because they keep the planet's surface warmer than it otherwise would be. But, as the concentrations of these gases continue to increase in the atmosphere, the Earth's temperature is climbing above past levels. According to NOAA and NASA data, the Earth's average surface temperature has increased by about 1.2 to 1.4ºF in the last 100 years. The eight warmest years on record (since 1850) have all occurred since 1998, with the warmest year being 2005. Most of the warming in recent decades is very likely the result of human activities. Other aspects of the climate are also changing such as rainfall patterns, snow and ice cover, and sea level.
Green house effect and global warming are the issues which are affecting the world's environment by changing the global weather pattern. We have to fight together to make the earth a better place for living.
If greenhouse gases continue to increase, climate models predict that the average temperature at the Earth's surface could increase from 3.2 to 7.2ºF above 1990 levels by the end of this century.

"You can never have an impact on society if you have not changed yourself" -Nelson Mandela

Everyone benefits when we preserve and protect the environment for future generations. One person can make a difference in the lives and the world around them.

"Believe in butterflies.
If they can fly a thousand miles, think what you can do."

It all has to start somewhere. If not with you than who? If not today then when?

Step up and be that person who takes that step in the right direction. Start the snowball rolling and become part of the solution.

You don't have to change your entire life. Make the simple changes around your house that really can make a difference. A Healthy Planet starts by Thinking Globally but Acting Locally.

I hope to get every person to plant at least one tree each year.
Now image that number if the entire town did the same. How about the city, the state or even the whole country?.
If this happens, I strongly believe " one billion trees "can be planted in an effort to help stop global warming.

Now can you see how one person doing their one little thing can turn into a healthy planet revolution?

It just takes action. Take the first step and you will be on your way towards a healthy life and a healthy planet.

Did you know... who is Anna Hazare?

Posted by smartindians Monday, 15 August 2011

"Today we will not just be like Gandhiji, but if the government doesn’t accept the peoples demands, we will become like Chhatrapati Shivaji." - Anna Hazare
This luminous man was the first child born to an unskilled laborer couple Baburao Hazare and Laxmi Bai on January 15, 1940 in the small village of Bhingar, not far from Amednagar, Maharashtra. He was named as Kisan Bapat Baburao Hazare  now popularly known as Anna Hazare

In 1952, when Anna was twelve years old, adverse conditions pushed their family into the grip of poverty and Anna Hazare moved into his ancestral home in Ralegan Siddhi. Anna Hazare was brought up by a childless aunt in Mumbai, who funded his education but financial instability pushed him into selling flowers at Dadar for a living and he had to quit studies after class VII.
Soon after in 1963, after the outbreak of the Indo-China War, when the government exhorted young men to join the Army , Anna Hazare joined the Indian Army and trained as truck driver .

During his 15-year tenure as a soldier, he serviced at several states like Assam, Sikkim, Mizoram, Bhutan, Jammu-Kashmir,  Leh and Ladakh, but his days were spent reading books on the philosophy of Swami Vivekananda, Mahatma Gandhi and Acharya Vinoba Bhave.
In 1978, two near-fatal mishaps in the previous war with Pakistan changed his outlook towards life and seeking voluntary retirement from the Army, he returned home to Ralegaon Siddhi, which was then in the grip of drought, poverty, crimes and alcoholism. He was then 39 years old.

Hazare was became very depressed by the next battlefront of drought, poverty, illiteracy, alcoholism, and caste prejudice existed in Ralegaon Siddhi.  Anna Hazare was a deep thinker and observer of life as well as an industrious young man.  Endless difficulties made him question the goal of his human existence.  Unable to find it, he contemplated suicide.  He wrote two pages explaining his desire to end his life but carried on nevertheless.

One day at the New Delhi Railway Station, he chanced upon a book on Swami Vivekananda. Drawn by Vivekananda's photograph, he purchased and read the book and found his answer - that the motive of his life lay in service to his fellow humans.  It was the supreme moment of his life, a great phenomenon in the history of man’s spiritual journey.  He read the works of Swami Vivekananda, Mahatma Gandhi and Vinoba Bhave.  Swamiji Vivekananda’s dynamic words and blazing, fearless example of spiritual strength gave Anna Hazare the direction to follow. That turned him to social work. He was endowed with a new vision of life.  The problems in his village became a golden opportunity to apply Swamiji’s message.

    Anna Hazare immediately harnessed the youthful energy of Ralegaon Siddhi into the powerful Tarun Mandal and created various successful programmes of socio-economic and agricultural improvement in the village. He used his savings for the developmental work of the village. He greatly advanced education and removed caste prejudice.  He brought about the prohibition of tobacco, cigarettes, beedies and the illegal production and sale of alcohol through very strict methods of enforcement with the approval of the Gram Sabha.

He motivated villagers into voluntary labour. Canals and bunds were built to hold rainwater which solved the water scarcity problem and also increased irrigation possibilities in the village.  Hazare, further economically transformed the lives of  seventy other villages through a successful watershed development program.

Anna Hazare's fight against corruption began here. He fought first against corruption that was blocking growth in rural India. His organization - the Bhrashtachar Virodhi Jan Andolan (People's movement against Corruption). His tool of protest - Hunger Strikes. And his prime target - Politicians

For more than two decades, Anna Hazare has been heroically fighting corruption through peaceful agitation and hunger strikes, following the example of Mahatma Gandhi.  He always fought together with the Tarun Mandal, the band of young men who were inspired to follow his idealism.  He was once jailed for his steadfastness but released after three months due to the public outcry and support.
In 1996, Hazare forced the Sena-BJP government in Maharashtra to drop two corrupt Cabinet Ministers. In 2003, he forced the Congress-Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) state to set up an investigation against for ministers.

He describes the anti-corruption movement to which he dedicates his life as the “second struggle for independence.”  The inspiring demonstration of his strength of character makes an immense impact on the people.  His fasts—always in the presence of the photographs of Swami Vivekananda and Mahatma Gandhi—were captured in the public media of the Internet.  The people of India have shown very great enthusiasm.  Anna Hazare virtually and universally arouses the sincere interest of thousands of people from India and abroad.  Well known social activists have joined his campaign against corruption.

His method of eradicating corruption through hunger strikes, including the one in 2011 at age 71, was previously repeated several times.  It was only in 2011 that he became famous when the entire world came to know of him due to the public outcry and media attention.  His vow to call for a nationwide demonstration if the anti-corruption ombudsman bill (Lokpal) was not passed, caused the Indian Parliament to agree to all his demands on April 8, 2011.  Nearly 150 people had fasted with him; he excluded all politicians.  Hazare ended his 98-hour fast that began on April 5, 2011 in the same selfless manner that he has lived his entire life.  He first offered lemon juice to some of those who supported him by fasting.  Then he took a little sip and addressed the people: “The real fight begins now.  “We have a lot of struggle ahead of us in drafting the new legislation.  We have shown the world in just five days that we are united for the cause of the nation.  The youth power in this movement is a sign of hope.”

His achivements have won him many awards like the Indira Priyadarshini Award, the Krishi Bhushana Award (1989), the Padma Shree Award (1990), the Padma Bhusan Award (1992), Ramon Magsaysay Award and World Bank’s 2008 Jit Gill Memorial Award for Outstanding Public Service. This year, the Indian Institute of Planning and Management awarded Anna Hazare the Rabindranath Tagore International Peace Prize.

Care International of the USA, Transparency International, Seoul (South Korea) also felicitated him.

Anna Hazare is not an ordinary person from a humble background.  He is a transformed, self-made man of the people, a true native of India’s spiritual culture.  India alone can produce such a saintly personality as Anna Hazare from her backward, impoverished masses.  He has come to the global forefront neither by glamour or notoriety, nor by the influence of great wealth or political power.  He is known throughout the world today by his soul force alone, through the straightforward demonstration of the strength of his character, through his sincerity, honesty, acute mental vision, and dedication to a noble cause.  His life is a demonstration of the triumph of the human spirit over extreme odds.  His moral authority and fiery faith bring others to his good cause.  Anna Hazare has become the symbol of the righteous battle against corruption in India, and thus, by geographic extension, against corruption everywhere in the world.
