What should be in our company's MLM distributor manual or Party Plan consultant guide?

At the heart of training is an effective MLM distributor manual or Party Plan consultant guide that offers guidance, reference, and training. Tools can be effectively deployed to augment the training philosophies and practices, but there is no substitute for an effective manual.

A party plan company shares many similarities with a multilevel marketing company. This is especially true in the realm of fulfillment and the reality of dealing with a volunteer sales force. Incentives, recognition, meaningful promotions, and significant earnings potential continue to be the appeal for MLM distributors and party plan consultants.

However, the significant differences between MLM and Party Plan can be illustrated through a comprehensive look at the typical MLM Distributor Manual and comparing it with the common Party Plan Consultant Manual, outlined below for your review and support. These outlines are excerpted from the LaunchSmart™ System.

Quite often, the crunch of time or limitations in expertise or resources will place a heavy burden on you. Help is as easy as a phone call away.
