There are proven tips for Nigerians to finally make money in MLM that I’d love to share with you. If you want to do network marketing in Nigeria, you need to take note of these 5 MLM tips for Nigerians.


Because Nigerians face a unique set of challenges; in order to be successful despite those challenges, you have to do things right. If you don’t do it the right way, you may make a little money, but it is unlikely that you will ever achieve any substantial measure of success.

If you do it right, however, you can finally be on your way to MLM success.

5 important Tips for Nigerians to Finally Make Money in MLM:

1. Find the right MLM opportunity to join

  • Network marketing opportunities are a dime a dozen, as the expression goes. And when you look at how few network marketers actually make money, most of them are either junk, or they don’t suit your personality. Finding the right opportunity involves looking at a number of factors:
  • A product that will sell itself. Many MLM opportunities are about over-priced products. That is how some companies can afford to pay those incredibly high commissions. As long as everything is going well, your recruits don’t mind paying extra – because they are making commissions. But when they struggle to make sales or to recruit other people, they start to question the price of the products they have to buy, and stop making their monthly purchases. And YOU are back to square one. If, however, you pick an opportunity that comes with great products at good prices, many recruits will hang on for longer, because they feel they are getting value for their money.
  • A payment (and referral-) plan that works for you. Not everybody feels comfortable with every type of payment plan. Some people like break-away payment plans, while others feel more comfortable in a binary, or a plain tiered referral structure. Some people like programs where you can place referrals where you want to in your matrix – and some people don’t (just ask anyone who had a useless referral pushed into their downlines by their upline – requiring them to work much harder to grow that line).
  • A company that has their stuff sorted out – many MLM companies have messy logistics management, and sometimes they have messy money management. Both of these can cause you to lose referrals (purchases not delivered on time, or commissions not paid on time).

2. Use an MLM recruitment system:

In the old days, you could simply join an MLM opportunity, and start running with it. You could make money. But nowadays the competition is a bit more, and a bit tougher.

On the other hand, though, the internet allows you to reach out to people in other towns, provinces, countries, and even people on other continents. However, once you start recruiting internationally, you will also compete internationally. That means you absolutely have to have a system which not only gives you the best chance of recruiting anyone you connect with, but which will also work for your referrals.

Nowadays, professional network marketers have their own blogs – like this one you are reading now, where I offer MLM tips to Nigerians to help them make money. They also have a social presence, and a mailing list to keep in touch with people who visit their blogs.

Note: Having all of these is one thing – but you have to balance the time and effort you dedicate to each one in order to make it work. It’s a lot like the ingredients in a recipe – if you mix them in the wrong quantities, it’s a mess.

3. Find the right MLM team to join:

A network marketing team is much more than “just a group of people who happen to be promoting the same opportunity”. A team is a community where people support one another, offer tips, answer your questions, share ideas, and share resources. In some teams, you will even find that the founder of the team will provide custom landing pages for his or her team members.

Joining the right team is crucial. It can make all the difference in the world, and lift you away from failure into success. The right team can help you to sort out problems on your blog or mailing list, help you to improve your recruiting skills, and motivate you when you need it.

A good network marketing team will contain not only beginners, but also intermediate and professional network marketers. After all, if it is all just a bunch of beginners, who will answer their questions?

4. Identify a Sponsor That can help You to Finally Make Money in MLM:

While the right team is a great place to be in, you can never underestimate the value of a sponsor who truly cares about you. A good sponsor will take the time to ensure you know everything you need to know about how the company operates, and about the basics of MLM and direct selling.

Think about it logically: Your sponsor wants to make money (commissions) from your efforts. The more successful YOU become, the more money he or she stands to make. Not all network marketers understand this, so it is quite possible to join under someone who doesn’t care about you.

Do some homework, and go and see what other people are saying about the person you want to join under. What kind of person is he or she? Keep in mind that while having a successful sponsor with experience is a good thing, it is not a guarantee that he or she will be there when you need them.

5. Be willing to learn:

Regardless of how much you know, there are two things you always have to keep in mind:

  1. The world is always changing. People are always finding newer and better ways of doing things – also in MLM.
  1. You don’t know what you don’t know. There is always someone else who knows something you don’t know – and possibly don’t even know about.

Note: In order for you to learn something from someone else, he or she doesn’t have to be a professor or a guru. In fact, he or she only needs to know ONE thing that you don’t know to be able to teach you. Every single thing you learn can be combined with what you already know in order to do better, and make money in MLM faster.

Concluding on Tips for Nigerians to Finally Make Money in MLM:

Network marketing is a business like any other type of business. Fair enough, it costs less to start and it can grow bigger – but the basics of doing business remain the same. These include finding a good opportunity, developing a business system, having a mentor, and having a support structure of other business owners that you can ask for help when you need advice. And above all, be willing to learn, because you don’t know what you don’t know.
