Raise Capital to Start Your Network Marketing Company


Raising capital to fund your network marketing startup can be tricky. In fact, there is no clear cut answer to finding funding. However, there are options available to MLM company owners. There are many giant direct sales companies operating today that began with a very limited budget, in their basements and garages. Many of these companies grew to the size that they are now organically. You, however, may be in a different situation where the influx of capital is necessary to keep your business afloat.

This article will provide you with some details of how you can get free and trusted information on how to raise capital for your direct selling business. Experts generally propose that it costs around $100-$200 thousand to start up a network marketing company. This article will provide you with some ideas as to where to find funding and links to online information written by experienced MLM industry experts.

1) Do you have a substantial recruiting background? If you are a seasoned recruiter and are able to attract a strong lineup of consultants then your need for capital will decrease considerably. Expert MLM Attorney Jeff Babener always says, “Your need for capital is in direct inverse proportion to your ability to recruit.” If you are able to attract a strong sales force then your need to raise capital outside of the company may greatly diminish. Consultants will be the key to your success. If you are unable to recruit, or don’t have a recruiting background, then you may want to consider hiring someone who has recruiting experience.

2) Do you have personal capital? MLM startups often find the capital that they need in their own bank accounts, or the bank accounts of family and friends. In some cases, an angel investor is willing to invest in the company. These sorts of investments are based primarily on a personal relationship, as well as trust and loyalty.

3) What about public financing? Unfortunately, not many venture capital firms are interested in investing in startup network marketing companies. The startup MLM company has the tendency to be run by inexperienced business owners needing only a few hundred thousand dollars, which isn’t very attractive to large investors. In nearly all cases, investment into the company will come from a close source. Once your business is worth millions, then the investment firms will take notice. You can read about some of the more famous MLM success stories on these pages: Silpada, Herbalife, Pampered Chef, and Visalus.
