Thats Good Question !!!
You have enough thirst to learn.
Unfortunately i am reaching you late. but i hope it may help you in certain aspects.
I am Not Agreed nor dis-agreed About RMP.
but my answer would you able to identify the right company.
before answering this question i must say little thing about me.
I am Sathish living in chennai.Doing as Software Developer,
I have 9+ years of Experience in MLM OR Network marketing.
so, you can conclude that i have IN and OUT knowledge about MLM.
To share my knowledge i must have some purpose right ?
by properly Educating the people they can understand about MLM.
Here is my purpose. "so they can proceed with mlm or if they not willing to join at least "not talking negatively about legal MLM". "
so, i am giving you some hints.
1.) They Should have their own product lines( Own Manufacturing). even they may have tie ups
but D'msure MLM Company should have their own manufacturing unit for their products.
I) IN Legal NETWORK OR MLM Company they give High Quality and standard products.
say, if they are going to buy from other manufacture then the cost of the high quality product will be high.
II)so they should have strong base of their own brand products. since, they cannot manufacture all products, can have tie-up with great manufacturer for the particular products with 30%+ as manufacture cost.
Example: If INTEL is making good and high quality Processor then any mlm company can have tie-up
with intel and can flood their network.
2.) A MLM company Chairman Or CEO Or Founder should have good Track Of Success Before starting MLM Compnay.
You may pop out with question "what about the new MLM Companies ? with out track of success want to open?"
Their are two possibilities may happen 1.) Positive 2.) Negative
They may grow well and reach top. consider even if they have good Products if they don't have enough back ground to compete with todays Legal MLM companies???
i have seen so manys good MLM companies are closed because they cannot survive in the market.
second case: if they open a company to cheat the money with scheme? then you will loose your money, creditability with in you friends and so on(because you made wrong decision).
there is proven formula that if an newly started company is can be able to survive more than six years they can survive.
3.) to take up the opportunity from network company
their must be the small registration fees which is capable to afford even by poor people(opportunity to every one). their must some tax paying to the government.
people whom introducing you to the company to join should not be benefited from your joining.
Reason: A legal mlm Or Network company is their to Move the product or service to the end user.
moving means selling. they can pay you from sales made commission.
if they are going to pay out to introducer because of your joining, then i bet "from your joining fees they are benefited".
4.) Company should have Return Guarantee Policy to some time.
Reason: Say if you are not satisfied with service or product you must have option to return it.
just like exit option.
compensation plan which should be benefit for you and teams.
it should not be benefit only to the top level.
Right now the government standards are not present for MLM Companies. In future, the government put their iron hand on MLM companies to guard the consumers or customers, Legal MLM companies from illegal Companies.
Before three month there was an Association of Legal MLM Companies where requested the government to put their effort to release the law on MLM companies to recognize Legal Companies (its still in process).
these are the major point you need to consider before joining any Legal companies.
if you need to clarify any other doubts you are welcome.
if you want success in any Legal MLM you need three 'S'.
1. Start (join in MLM)
2. Struggle (Creating a Team and teaching them)
3. Success (Success in MLM)
follow the step 1, 2, 3. if you skip or jump over the steps you cannot have long term success.
You should have Mentor(Teacher) with service oriented mind to help you in success.
At last i am going to teach a group interested people who is willing to learn further through E-Mail.
if you have interest send me e-mail in subject line mentioning "join-learning-professional-networker"
Wish for your Bright Future.
