Network Marketing is a business concept that started in the United States and eventually was taken to other countries. The early days of growth were difficult and very expensive. The first hurdle was education of the population to the viability of the business model. Business pioneers were required to take the message to the other countries.
The business pioneers had to be well funded to absorb the initial costs of developing new countries as the growth of a Network Marketing business is usually not initially funded by the Network Marketing company.
The ordinary telephone was the primary method of personal and team communication. In those days it was an expensive proposition. It was not unheard of for these pioneers to have $5,000 or even $10,000 USD monthly phone bills. Then there was the cost of travel, hotels, meals and initial local meetings. As a result the early international business developers came from the top business builders who were already successful in North America.
New distributors were virtually shut out as pioneers of international markets.
This international growth was lead by the distributors and they had to get past the
reluctance of their Network Marketing companies to get into these markets. They had to get
the initial product into many new markets. The early Network Marketing companies reaction
to the drive to expand that came from the distributors was to expand in a traditional
corporate style; they set up separate companies for each country.
These companies had their own qualification requirements which meant that individual distributors that wanted to do business in those countries had to register in that country and meet the qualification requirements. International Network Marketing business developers had to build their
businesses independently in each country. Financially distributors had to arrange to transfer
their own funds from each country.
The landscape that I conduct my Network Marketing business in today is dramatically
different than the one faced by the pioneers of the industry. Today we have
telecommunication networks that go around the world and transportation systems that can
move almost any product to any country. With the advent of the Internet coupled with the
large steel shipping containers that move goods from factory doors to warehouses and
courier systems that deliver overnight, your reach as a Network Marketer has become almost infinite.
