Is it true that online MLM like MOBE and Empower Network are already saturated?

    By saturated, do you mean there are a ton of affiliates promoting it? If so, then yeah. Of course, that could be said about a lot of offers...

    But here's the thing, try not to be focused on one offer or opportunity. A lot of the those affiliates give up quickly and quit. Or just don't take the time to learn to promote it effectively. You need to be different. Am I saying you should sign up with EN or Mobe? That's your decision.

    What I am saying is this-

    You should be focused on giving value to people upfront and building a list of loyal followers who trust you. I think most companies like these get bad names because they are poorly promoted.

    Be different than the rest of hype filled affiliates, provide real value in exchange for an email address. Build up that relationship with your readers. Give them information that truly will help them. Earn their trust. You need them to Like, Know, and Trust you.

    Become completely customer focused, truly help people. You want to give people so much value that they feel like they owe you something. Then when you offer them a product/service that you know can help them, you'll see a lot better conversions than those affiliates who just constantly spam the same offer over and over to them...

    That's my 2 cents. Hope it helps.

      That right there is what seems to be missing. The marketers who have a long term career on the internet truly understand what you have said here. The get rich quick crowd do not understand and they nearly always fall by the wayside.

    The internet if saturated and overpromoted all around. That doesn`t mean that there aren`t people earning on it. Just try to offer something new and you`ll earn in any niche. You know I went into weight loss when everyone was saying that the niche has no place for starters ? and it worked out better than expected

    "Is _______ oversaturated?"

    Depends on what YOU are doing.

    Which is interesting, isn't it. That it's focused on YOU and not the marketplace.

    Do you look, sound and feel like everyone else?

    Is what you're offering indistinguishable from everyone else?

    Then is it any surprise people aren't responding and your niche is "saturated"?

    What are YOU doing to make sure something new and interesting is available in your field?

    Hint: it could well be excellent execution is the stand-out thing customers are looking for. You don't have to get into a gorilla suit and start leaping around to get attention.

    These are not examples of MLMs. Not in the USA anyway.

    This is meaningless as "MLM" is a generic term.

    I participate in multi-tiered affiliate programs which are growing every day and really can't be saturated as long as new humans continue being born.

    Hi Carsten, thanks for posting Ian's video reviews of MOBE and Empower Network, I agree with you.

    For the most part I do not like MLM and some of the people that run these things.

    What is not saturated? In any facet of Business you will find competition. You must find your method of standing out from others by enriching the quality of your customers life. When finding a "REAL MLM" you must do your research and find a Legit Proven MLM Company:
    What do I mean by the correct MLM Company?
    +A company that has been around for 15+ Years
    +A company that has a Premium Quality Product or Service that actually adds value to the customers life.(You should try the product yourself prior to joining any company and determine if it is something that is of Premium Quality and that you would be proud to be involved with.)
    +A company that has a structured Training/Education system infrastructure.
    +A company with a concrete Commission/Bonus Payment system.


    If you find a company calling themselves a MLM business which the only means of monetary gain involves recruiting others then you have just been hustled.

    MLM should be built by selling a Premium Product or Service FIRST, Recruitment should not be the primary goal nor the only method of earning.

    network marketing
    Word Origin
    noun
    1.
    a marketing strategy in which sales representatives of a company recruit other salespeople and earn commissions on their own sales and on the sales made by their team:
    Use your personal relationships to be successful in network marketing.
    Expand
    Also called multilevel marketing.

    Don't go into this niche. If you're in this niche, leave - if you don't know what you're doing. Go and sell something like "how to become a good painter" or something like that. You'll make alot of money faster. And by "money" i mean profits.

    If you're a great marketer, with a big budget, you can definitely make a killing with these types of companies.

    If you're NOT a great marketer, and you DO NOT have a budget, stay away.



    Just my humble $.02, I've promoted, and done well with network marketing type offers in the past, but don't do it any longer.

    (There are plenty of big ticket and recurring affiliate offers you could promote instead, without having to pay the big bucks to qualify for whatever funnel each company has. That's why I'm specifically mentioning that if you DO NOT have a big budget, it's truly not worth your time).

    There's also the idea that many of these companies may in actuality be violating different laws, but I'm not going to open that can of worms.

    Wish you unfathomable success regardless of which route you take.

    Sadly no. Were that the case, people would stop spending money on them, and that would be a good thing.

    By over saturated you mean everyone is doing it an there is no more room?

    As of today there are 7.125 Billion people in the world.

    Your not trying to get all of them just a millimeter of a fraction of them.

    Don't worry about saturation worry more about getting a small amount of fans/followers/subscribers to like you.

    Provide value and content to those small amount of people then present your opportunity to them

    Hi,

    If you're a newbie on online marketing, avoid these kind of multi-level 'opportunity'.

    Better learn many other method of making money online.

    Get a coach, and make money faster.

    All the best and take care.

    I think both mobe n those programs have 1 thing in common, they have really good training.

    I'm not affiliated with those MLMs you mentioned above, but I saw the youtube vids that reflected the quality not just the program owner but the affiliates too.

    Saturated?

    I don't think so, why?

    Some people are successful while many more are failed (this happens in any niche, including in internet marketing niche), so I think u just have to do what the successful people have done.

    Not to mention there's no guarantee of success, just like if you buy a WSO telling you the blueprint to make 1,492 free traffic with their method that sells for $7.95 , n once you buy it you ask for a refund..

    While some other people buy that same WSO n made it to generate the free traffic..

    Similar to that I think..
