Ever tried or hear about MLM Gateway before? You might have taken a look around already and left because you were confused about the best way to use MLM Gateway. 

After reading this article you will be comfortable using MLM Gateway and able to use its real connection promoting power.

I will explain to you the what, how and why,  to get you the best result for your MLM home-based business

Is MLM Gateway worth the effort for use in your marketing business? Be your own judge!

What is MLM Gateway

In basic is MLM Gateway is a combination of a free marketer targeted social network and a contacting site. You can generate highly targeted, country and interest-based, business leads and associates with marketing like-minded people. 

MLM Gateway offers a personal profile page where you can include your projects, connection options, and a simple blog structure for self- or marketing program promotion.

It is a method to gain leads using the same principles as when you attempt to get leads from the regular social network with the twist that value internet marketing is appreciated,.

Frankly, MLM Gateway is made to connect with others about business sharing and wants you to do that, instead of putting you into a social jail for promoting

You will need to approach your prospect the same way as you should be recruiting using social media sites.

  • No spamming.
  • Offer value.
  • Use the helping approach to find out the prospect's needs.
  • Stay active

Just "post and leave" won't bring you any results. You will need to build up a trust factor and authority by posting helpful business announcements. In this way, people will see you as a person and not like a marketing robot, willing to follow you.

The real cost of MLM Gateway

MLM Gateway is free to sign-up and use. However, to connect, advertise, and accept people as leads, you need to spend the internal credits, which you can earn or buy.

at first, it seemed rather strange to me to have to buy credits to make contact. This system felt a bit like a fake dating site, meant to take away your credits as much and quickly as possible so that you will soon buy new ones.

Later I discovered that it's fairly easy to earn these credits by actively posting business announcements and promoting MLM Gateway.

Sending the first message to a new person from the member's list will cost you one credit. After his response, you can accept this person as a lead for 20 credits.

Next, to earn free credits, MLM Gateway offers the option of buying these credits or a monthly premium upgrade from $ 24,14 a Month

MLM Gateway credit packs overview

Premium membership offers you;
  • 50 credits included
  • No credit cost for the first connecting mail instead of 1 credit
  • More credits earned for publishing business announcement 
  • More credits are given for promoting and referring people.
  • 50% commission on referral spending instead of 35% at the first level

AND Extra Premium Features like;
  • Video and website link placing into your profile
  • Profile visible for all
  • Listing on Featured Professionals Page 
  • Premium badge
  • Profile visitors counting
  • Some more

Since these premium memberships offer you 50 credits included and no credits cost for connecting, I won't advise you to buy lose credits often but to consider if a premium upgrade is more cost-effective to you.

MLM Gateway premium membership overview

When you have 2 or more premium members in your downline, the premium membership pays itself to the 50% referral commissions.

How to get free credits on MLM Gateway

MLM gateway will give away free credits for;

Signing up at MLM Gateway - 5 credits
Referring into MLM Gateway - 10 credits ( premium members 15)
Sharing on Facebook or Twitter - 10 credits
When you are out of credits - 1 bonus credit
Accepted Business announcement - 5 credits ( premium members 10)

Business announcement (blog post) is the very best way to generate leads and free credits. The will make other people connect to you, instead of you connecting them and MLM gateway will give you 5 credits after accepting your post.

The business announcement needs to be unique postings with at least 400 words and can have up to two clickable links to your products inside.

Most of the time I write a blog article on my personal blog and create a little intro article with a link to my blog to post as an MLM gateway business announcement.

After accepting by MLM gateway, I can use the intro post on my other social marketer's sites

MLM Leads, teambuilding tips

What to promote on MLM Gateway

For successful promotion, you will need to find out what the real needs of your audience are and bring the solution for their problems.

If you take a good look at the MLM Gateway member base you will notice that most of them are already in an MLM-related Business.

The majority of members are trying to pull you out of your MLM business to make you step into theirs. If you try to promote an MLM program directly using MLM Gateway, you will be running around in circles with the other members. Following this system won't bring you much success or new leads.

What MLM Gateway members really want are new prospects into their MLM business.

With this in mind, it is way better to promote tools and training for people that are involved in network marketing.

If you offer traffic systems to the member's products, network marketing support, training, tools, or any other product or service related to the MLM business, you will gain a lot of attention and followers.

Leads and Connections on MLM Gateway, what's the difference?

Ok, here is where the confusion begins. MLM Gateway uses two terms in their system that look very similar, Leads and Connections. For understanding the full benefits and connection strategies, you first need to know the difference between these two terms. Otherwise, you will have no idea about what is what and how to reach out wherefore.


This is the lowest level of contact and is best compared with Facebook friends. 

A connection request is be made by sending a partnership request. When you create or receive a partnership request it needs to be accepted by clicking on the green "Connect" button in the right upper corner menu. Received invitations can be either accepted or ignored by this button. You may even accept a previously ignored invitation by clicking on the "Show ignored" link.

Once a connection is made you can see their profile information, including email address, and they will see yours. You may send private messages to your connections. Never spam connections with repeated offers. If they remove you from their connections you will never be able to contact them again.

Connections will see all your updates, updates, and business announcements on their Dashboard activity wall.

Click on "Connections", to see your connections list  
To remove a member from your connections, click on the "Remove" link in the list of connections.

The drawback of connections is that you are only able to connect thru the MLM Gateway system. If the stop logging on to MLM Gateway you lost your contact, not been able to reach out again.


Leads are going one step beyond connections. A lead is someone who has indicated they want to register for your business. Leads can be connected outside the MLM Gateway system by you and are willing to follow you in your projects.

How to get leads and connections on MLM Gateway.

1. Write business announcements,

Yes, I said it before... twice, but I can't stress this enough. These are the power of attraction, making people connect with you instead of the other way around and bringing you free credits.

In fact, they are hosted mini documents about your product that can have inside links to your projects. You can even submit your business announcements post links to Google and push them up with other social media likes to be found organic! 

Write a product-related business announcement with links to your product, publish, get its hosted link and post it on any other social media site. 

Pro tip: The very first business announcement you should write is your marketing profile. 
Don't be shy, Introduce yourself! check "how to write a smashing marketing profile"

When you publish a Business announcement it will be listed in the main menu top bar under the "business announcements" tab for all MLM Gateway members and your connections will get a notification in their members' dashboard. 

Accepted Business announcements will gain you 5 free MLM Gateway credits and are providing backlinks to your main blog also.

2. Connect with others

On top of your dashboard, you will find the latest social feeds with the "members list" directly under them. or you can press "members list" in your top-right menu to get directly to it

You can spit out highly targeted prospects by country and interest by using the filter option at the "members list" button. The latest added, fresh members, are on top of the list, upgraded members will have an orange badge next to their profile photo. Fresh and upgraded are the members to connect because they are most likely the returning members. Fresh members are new and investigating. Upgraded members did pay for the service and are used to pull their wallets for online services.

MLM Gateway connecting info

Sending a connecting request will cost you 1 credit a member.

To send a connection request, Find an interesting member and click the blue "contact member" button on the right side of the screen at that member.

On the next screen, you will see the chosen member's profile with a contact form at the bottom.

Write a custom connecting mail, be social and creative, don't use the pre-typed text!

Send away the connection request when you are done

3. Accept leads

MLM Gateway is all about getting leads, you can message them, new business announcement postings are on their social feeds. This is the social connection you want to achieve in the first place.

you can accept a lead if a person sends you a connection request or if a member replies to your connection request.

A lead is a connecting that is both ways accepted

The cost of accepting a lead is 20 credits, be sure you have these in a spare when you are sending connection mails otherwise it will be a lost contact.

Once you have a lead, it is wise to connect him to your other social sites or mailing list. In that way, you can still reach him if he lost interest in MLM Gateway and doesn't login anymore.

4. Post updates

Updated are little postings that can have a linked URL to your offers. Updates can be created in your personal dashboard and will appear in your connections members' dashboard as well.

To get the full benefits out of updates you need to gain some connections first. Don't just spam your offers or your connections will block you.

Good post updates are messages about discounts in your offers, gaining free stuff, and notifying that you have launched a  new business announcement or blog post on your main blog.

Updates are worth notification about what's up to grab some extra attention.

5. Advertise

MLM Gateway offers Cost Per Click (CPC) text and image advertising inside their network using
credits. A great advance of CPC is that you are not paying credits for displays of your advertisement. Credits will only be taken off when someone actually clicks on your advertisement.

When you create an advertisement you can set how many credits will be charged for one click from one credit. Higher bids on a click (eg 3 credits) will display your advertisements more frequently for faster traffic.

6. Become a member of the day

The Member of the Day is a credit-paid display of your profile widget on all pages at the header of the MLM Gateway website.  Your name, picture, and profile link will be shown for 24 hours.
To book a date, just click on the link below the active "member of the day" widget.
The booking of a date will cost you between 700 and 1000 MLM gateway credits. I know that's a high ticket but your widget will get more than 100.000 page views, driving a huge number of people to your profile. 

This is particularly perfect for members who have their profiles filled in with a website (blog) link, social media links, business amusements, or videos. The Member of the Day profile widget is exclusively shown to all members and visitors of the website for the whole day.

MLM Gateway referral program

Just mentioning it, I won't get too deep into the referral program because this article is about getting leads from MLM Gateway and not about promoting MLM gateway itself.

MLM gateway has a standard 2 level deep commission structure.

As a free member, you will get 10 credits for every free member you recruit directly into MLM Gateway and 35% commission of his spendings on credit and upgrades (15 credits and 50% for premium members)

On the second level, the referral that is recruited by your referral, you will get a 6% commission of this person's spending.

MLM Gateway referral program overview

Although this can count up nice, and bring you costless upgraded premium membership when you have 2 paying recruits in, I will advise you not to make promoting MLM Getaway your primary goal.

If you use MLM Gateway as a tool to find prospects and leads for promotion systems and projects, you will start to love and learn it.

After that, you will be able to promote MLM Gateway passively on the site as a great tool.

My advice is to first use MLM Gateway as a promotional tool and learn all about it before you start promoting MLM Gateway itself

Your referral promotion link and banners can be found in the affiliate section.

MLM Gateway overview

MLM Gateway is a great concept to bring marketing-involved people together.

When you use it to connect to people, advise them, and help them grow into their own MLM business, you will be able to spit out value leads for your Traffic, Training, and Branding programs or tools.

When you try to recruit members into your MLM business opportunity directly is, you will be running around in the circle of defeat with the other members.

For me personally is MLM gateway one of the programs I keep on returning to since 2016.
For some periods I use it more often or less. Over the years, it always brought me good results for some old fashion labor of writing content and actively connecting.  MLM Gateway has proven me to be a good investment in time and effort over the long run.

    1. Thanks Taco,

      Another great way to get responce in MLM gateway is posting something about yourself (a marketing profile) as an bussiness anouncement. You can use the permalink of that profile to promote yourself and MLM Gateway in the same, I forgot to mention that. Any responce is a bump up on your anouncement and an attraction to your biz. If you put a social media pic in your anousement, it will popup nice in facebook when shared the permalink (600x315px)

  2. Extremely useful information. I know people who have joined MLM gateway, spent far too much and got nowhere, but that's because they didn't know what they were doing.

    This post will be helpful to many such people.

    I, like you, dip in and out of using MLM gateway and I've always got good results and spent very little, if anything
