Most of the MLM companies offer a fairly solid compensation plan, plus they offer products which you can use along the way. There are so many out there to choose from. I just don't have the answer as to why MLM is a "dirty" word.
Is it because of the party plan style? People get sick and tired of being asked to go to someones house to watch a presentation and feel that they must buy products. Not all operate this way though so what is wrong with the rest. Am I defending them? No I am not not I am just trying to understand it better.
I have recently joined a MLM company, and yes I was told all the usual stuff. Its easy they say! Be your own boss they say! Create your own financial freedom they say! All of this is appealing to those looking for more ( including myself). I soon found out that this is not entirely true. It is far from easy and I still am working my 9-5 monday to friday, which mind you isn't all that bad. Am I making money? Yes a little but nothing to gloat about. Are the products good? Yes they appear to be but they are very pricey. This is why it is a tough gig. The early days you don't make any money but must buy the products or a certain amount to maintain your account levels.
So why? Why is it that everyone hates it. If the majority of people bought into it then we would all make money wouldn't we? Or maybe not.
The company I have joined has only been operating for a short period of time and is climbing the MLM charts rapidly. Could this be the reason I am seeing so many involved having a lot of success?
Personally I don't like to put all my eggs in the one basket so I run a few little extra income projects all the time. Right now one of them is MLM. My wife loves the products but hates the concept of selling them to people we know. So what is so bad about MLM?
Fire away, I'm looking forward to reading the feedback....good and bad!
