Discover the Top 20 Network Marketing Trainers in the World

Who are the top 20 network marketing trainers? Well, it really depends on how you define “The Top 20…” As you might imagine, the truth can be a bit subjective.  For example…

Over 28 million people have read Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. Apparently it’s a great book about money. Which begs the question, does a keynote speaker at a MLM convention deserve a ranking simply because he or she is a New York Times best-selling author? It’s a fair question.

Here’s what we know for sure: Popularity is definitely one of the best ways to determine what’s going on in the marketplace. After all, it plays a part in the movies we see, the music we download, and sometimes even where we invest our money.

How Are the Top 20 MLM Trainers Decided?

So is “The Top 20…” just an online popularity contest? Not at all. To make a fair assessment we gave consideration to things that really don’t matter, like authoring a New York Times best-selling book. And to things that really do matter, like experience in the network marketing profession, how their peers and the public rated them, and whether or not they’ve ever built an MLM business!

In short, we wanted you to know the exact criteria we used in order to select, and then to rank, “The Top 20…” You may agree with our findings, or you may not; we welcome your thoughts and opinions either way. Here’s the Nexera Eight-Factor Formula we used to make our selections:

1)     The trainer must be a known, living, network marketing or MLM industry trainer.

2)      The trainer must offer network marketing specific books, CDs, and/or training.

3)     The trainer must have 10+ Years Experience (YE) in the network marketing profession.

4)      The trainer must receive a eview (PR) rating. The smaller the number the better.

5)      The trainer must acknowledge whether he or she has Built an MLM Business (BB).

6)     The trainer must receive a oting () rating. Between 0 – 100%, with 100% being best.

7)      The trainer must have a ank (). A scale of 0 – 10, with 10 being best.

8)     The trainer must have an ank (). Here the smaller the number the better.
