What a great time for MLMers. The internet has opened doors and made it much "easier" for many to build their MLM business completely online. This has to be part of the reason so many top earners make over $20,000 a month. Just use a blog and email and you can communicate/contact all your prospects/members on a regular basis, anytime of day or night and automate the process.
As someone who has a good full time job, this is what has attracted me to take a second look at MLM ( not to mention retirement looming around the corner ). The whole world is really your market, now. Plus who really wants to "bug" their friends.
Also, I know many in this space disagree, but because of my current position, having some anonymity is also useful.
