Network marketing is a type of business opportunity that is very popular with people looking for part-time, flexible businesses. Some of the best-known companies in America, including Mary Kay Cosmetics, State Farm Insurance and Huntington Bank, are a part of Southwest Networking Group.

Marketing Education

Marketing education is a program designed to prepare secondary and post-secondary students to conduct the critical business functions associated with directing the flow of products and services from the producer to the consumer. SWNG serves as an excellent knowledge resource for its members.


A Referral Marketing Strategy can be defined as the practice of building a base of customers or clients by obtaining support from specific sources. In simpler terms, this strategy is a way for business owners to get existing customers and friends to promote their business for them.
