Why Your Network Marketing System Doesn’t Work

network marketing systemA long time ago an emperor lived whose only love was fine clothing. He loved to strut about the village, showing off all his new outfits to the villagers, who were quite poor.

One day, the emperor stumbled upon two men who claimed that they could make a suit out of the most beautiful material on the planet. This cloth was special, in that it was invisible to anyone who was impure of heart.

Upon hearing this, the emperor was both excited and terrified. He was excited because, of course he wanted a fine suit made of beautiful material. Scared, because he wasn’t sure he was pure of heart.

What if the material was invisible to him?

So he sent two of his trusted aides to view the material first. Neither would admit they saw nothing, so praised the material as being the most beautiful they had ever seen.

By this time, all the villagers had also heard of the cloth, and were interested in learning how impure their neighbors were.

The emperor then had a suit made of the cloth, and wore this suit in a procession through the village, never admitting that he wasn’t pure enough to see what he was wearing. What would the villagers think? Surely he’d lose his crown!

All the villagers raved at the beauty of the emperor’s new suit, all unwilling to admit they saw nothing. It was then a small child loudly proclaimed: “The emperor has no clothes!”

The crowd began to whisper amongst themselves, and the emperor felt they may be right, but kept the procession going nonetheless.

Why is this story relevant to the failure of your network marketing system? Well, keep in mind that more than 95% of the people in network marketing are failing.


Is it because you’re stupid and can’t follow the directions of your upline? No. It’s because you’re being told the wrong information.

Your network marketing system won’t work if it doesn’t get you talking to targeted, qualified individuals on a regular basis. Are the leads you buy from your lead company really qualified to start a business?


Is your Uncle Ted someone you can picture in your downline? Why then are you constantly being told to hound these people about your business?

Does your network marketing system dictate that you splash your link all over Facebook and Twitter? How’s that working for you?

You see, you’re not the only one failing by using this network marketing system. The problem is not you, it in the system.

Now, you’re not going to be able to tell who’s failing on your team, because everybody puts up the best front, just like the villagers in the above story. But trust me, if you’re doing the same thing as everybody else and you’re failing, they are, too.

At some point, you’ve got to realize that the emperor truly has no clothes, and if you keep using the network marketing system you’re currently using, you’re going to waste a lot of time and a lot of money.

You probably have already.

Is there really a network marketing system that will get you face to face with interested, qualified, and targeted people? You bet there is.

The trick is by getting them to come to you.

I understand this is the opposite of what your current network marketing system teaches, which is to “go out and get ‘em,” but this one really works.

You work this system by giving away content. Not only does this brand you as a leader and an expert, it also attracts people to you like crazy.

And don’t be fooled . . . Only the leaders are the ones making the big bucks in network marketing. These are the teachers, the ones giving the lectures and seminars.

What some would call the “Alpha marketers.”

The good news is that you can learn to develop the needed skills to become an Alpha. Or, you can keep making those dials, hounding poor Uncle Ted, and getting the same results you’ve been getting.
