I was talking with a business partner on Facebook and could not believe what happened next. We were discussing an ancient principle in MLM :: “People join People not Companies” – this is something that all professionals know to be true.

I decided to do a quick search to see who actually said it first; I’m actually interested in MLM History; I don’t mind doing research on the industry that has done so much for my life. While looking for it, I was surprised to see NO obvious results; telling me who I and other professionals have borrowed this phrase from.

So, I decided to put something togehter to talk about this Principle and explain WHY it’s so important to YOUR success in Network Marketing (or MLM) – if you join a company, make sure you also INVEST yourself into that companies Culture as well.

You must be fully emersed; you must be PART of the TEAM – the GROUP – because People is a ‘plural phrase’ that refers to more than one Person. So in other words, who you work with matters just as much as making sure you work With others, while building your MLM organization. Stop worrying about what company you’re in. That’s not what people are looking at anyways.

People join people, not companies – It’s in several of the MLM Training videos for 1mlmsystem; as we have been stressing loyalty to team, over company – primarily because it works. When people see a commitment to other people; they wanna be involved in that too. Most people cannot find that kind of environment anywhere else in society; so it’s up to members of a TEAM within an MLM organization to create that environment.

When people do – People join people, Not companies. When you find MLM Companies that are doing very well, you will find companies with People who get it. When people get it, they can grow it; because they GET that people join people – it doesn’t matter what the company is; no one joins an MLM company to sell a product; Even if they’re saying that is why. Somewhere in their core being, is a feeling of desire to belong – to be part of whatever group of people they have been invited to join.

people join people not companies - relationships matter in MLM

This is why when YOU try to recruit someone on your own, your Results are not AS GOOD as when you use a 3rd party expert; to edify you, do a 3way for you – NOR are your results as effective as bringing a prospect to a live meeting with 100 or 1,000 people – the more people the better; the more likely your prospect will want to belong.

Because it’s true – People join people not companies; this is the same reason people do NOT join your company; they do not like the people.

When people want to belong, they’ll duplicate – they’ll do the same things everyone else is doing; because they want to be accepted by the group.  They want others to speak well of them in this group of people they decided to partner up with. Because they are now doing the right things, they will get results they’re after – and this is why your success is hugely dependaent on your ability, and willingness to fully commit to and join ‘the group’ –

Sometimes people fail when they join the group, but don’t care too much about being accepted or approved; some people have HUGE EOG’s which get in the way of their  success.This causes a person to ‘do their own thing’ – and now it becomes evident to all of their prospects that this person is NOT part of ‘the group’ — So they might join the same company being promoted by this ‘individual’ when they meet someone who’s working with ‘the team’ – oftentimes people are confused by this.

But, this ancient rule explains why – People join people, not companies – most people are not even listening to a word you or I say to them; they’re simply looking at who else you’re working with – or not working with. Understanding this SIMPLE principle will take you to he very top; in every MLM Company you join.

** Update June, 8 2016 –

So much Has indeed changed since I first wrote this in 2013 – including ‘where’ I’m linking out to that video On the future of tech. Even that has changed in the past 3 years. There are NEW platforms in the social media space that were not around 3 years ago. Change is such a constant. Yet, some things will never change. People join people not companies – that rule still applies to this very day. The reason that people join people not companies is simple. When a person meets someone else they compare themselves to that person.  People follow people – that’s how this world has always been. Regardless of what technology comes out, people generally use it the way, others use it.  People usually do what Others are doing; it’s “The Strangest Secret”, that Earl Nightengale spoke about so many years ago. While it’s true, that change is constant – some things will not change.

When people join people not companies, you want to position yourself and the people you work with As the people to join.  This is why personal growth and development matters. If the people you want to partner up with, are not joining you – it is a sign that you’ve got to grow! Keep growing!
