I am gonna try to cram a lot of information into this post, and still keep it short...wish me luck...and sorry in advance if I fail...LOL.
OK, my Dad started in MLM about 18 years ago....he recruited a guy who went on to become a millionaire before 26 years of age. However, before that my Dad dropped out...lol...yeah bad luck...no just stupid, cause he stayed in MLM just not that one.
Later the guy felt bad for my Dad and put him into a position where he made a modest income for a few years until he died. I got into the company, and after one too many typical hype statements from a "diamond" to a new recruit about selling their TV to buy product to qualify for commissions, which was ridiculous because this old lady didn't have anyone under her.....I decided it wasn't for me, and wanted nothing to do with MLM ever again!!!!
Well, for years I mean over 10 years I have been reading and studying online marketing with the idea to make a living online. I was in the process on creating an info product when i decided it would be better to make it into a Kit for a variety of reasons.
After several years of pretty decent success I had my product copied to the point where it was no loner worth while to sell.
So...what's happened is I am really into Wholistic Health and I do a lot of research in the area. I stumbled across a radio program and after listening for quite some time I decided to give it a try.
Well it is an MLM company. Now, regardless of what people say about it, it is a real business and you can make money at it. The problem is it attracts a lot of idiots, and because of the social nature what seems to get flung around is some of the most idiotic archaic methodologies.
I love when they say "don't reinvent the wheel" when their wheel is square...
Any way...I am hoping to use affiliate marketing methods to build a new MLM type business based on online marketing and honest marketing techniques.
So here's my question to you guys on these forums.....if MLM was approached from a different perspective not what I call "the used car salesman approach" is it reasonable to think there are a large number of people out there like me, who recognize it's a business that needs a certain approach and not the BS you usually get from "upline" people who don't actually have any marketing experience???
Also, do you agree it's the lie, lie and lie some more about the expectations of an MLM business that give it such a bad name!???
Thanks in advance!!!!
