History of Network Marketing
Network Marketing has been around for over 50 years. In 1934 a California vitamin company came up with the concept of multi level marketing. This company is now called Nutralite Corporation. The company started by signing up salespeople to sell their product to friends and family. In this process they would earn an extra $50 for making a sale which was a substantial income during that time. As a result of this more and more people from the family started joining the company and started doing the business so that they could benefit from that extra income.
Types of Network Marketing:
Broadly network marketing is divided into 3 types. The 3 types of network marketing are:
