When you see multiple different providers offering software for vastly different prices, what is a good deal, and which ones are just taking advantage of you?

How Much Does MLM Software Cost?

As a major MLM software supplier, we get asked a lot of questions by prospective clients. One frequent question is this: “How much does MLM software cost?” 

You wouldn’t call a property agency to ask how much “houses” cost or a car dealer to ask how much “cars” cost. These questions, including the one about the cost of MLM software, are in the realm of the proverbial cliché: “How long is a string?”

In this context, any software supplier who immediately gives you a fixed price is more interested in getting paid than in gathering information aimed at developing a constructive business relationship. Don’t swim in shark-infested waters, as the saying goes.

Multi-level marketing software is complex and can vary in many different areas based on the needs of the business.

We always insist on learning more about your needs before we attempt to give an answer about costs. You need to tell us about your distributor recruitment plans, planned web presence, logistics arrangement, and what third-party integrations you need. Last, but not least, we need to identify your compensation plan and determine whether it can be done relatively easily or if it’s going to require custom programming. This exchange of information is the only honest and transparent method for preparing a software proposal tailored to serve your needs and to make your multi-level marketing business successful.

Your involvement with a software supplier must be based on a business relationship where proper solutions and avoidable mistakes are managed.

Cheap isn’t always Cheap

While there’s nothing wrong with looking for the best price, as they say, you get what you pay for, and that couldn’t be more true when it comes to MLM and Network Marketing software.

When you buy cheap software, you need to recognize that they’re less expensive than their competitors for a reason. When the up-front costs look too good to be true, they probably are. The things you may expect to be included turn into extra costs later on, things like customer support, user training, or necessary features.

 

As a new MLM company, your choice in software can and will make or break your business. Before you come to a decision, make sure you do your due diligence. Make sure that the company you choose to work with knows and understands the details of your business, has software that will do what you need it to do not just immediately but 6, 9, 12 months down the road, and has the ability to scale to your needs as your new company grows. Make sure that it’s a company you are happy working with and comfortable coming to when you have issues. Good business and good network marketing is all about relationships and MLM Software is no different.
