MLM and Network Marketing Reviews
I know that these may be dirty words in certain circles.
The only thing I want to clear up here is how these typically work and which ones are legitimate.
People hear MLM and immediately think scam.
In many cases they are right.
Now to clarify, I’m going to be discussing here companies that are vested and actually deliver valuable products or services to their customers.
I don’t feel the need to discuss Ponzi schemes here.
Those are obviously illegal because it is theft.
Most of these companies don’t spend much money on advertising.
They let their representatives sell their company and product.
The reps get paid if they sign people up and they buy.
Usually that is a small portion of the purchase.
The way people develop income streams here is by getting their signups to get more people to sign up and if they buy, then the person who originally signed them up gets a portion of that person’s purchase as well.
Did that make sense? 😳
So, the idea is to sign people up and buy, and get them to sign people up and buy, etc.
If you build it big enough, you can get a pretty steady residual income stream every month from all the buyers in your lines of people.
It can be extremely lucrative and usually signup costs are low.
The reason people typically don’t like them is because you have to sell others on the concept and get them to work alongside you.
These people are usually friends and family and it can be a frustrating journey of rejection and late nights in order to build this kind of business.
This is long, hard work and it usually takes most people a few years to get it built.
That being said, the people who build these types of businesses lead comfortable lives and most of the organizations have a strong personal growth ethic and great support.
The good news is that now, you don’t just have to burn through your contact list and get people to either sign up or start screening your calls and facebook messages.
There’s nothing more awkward than touching base with your ex from high school 20 years later and trying to get that person to sell your business concept. (haha)
I only recommend a couple companies here.
That’s not to say other good ones don’t exist, I’m just not going to review them.
Do your homework.
Many of these companies are not financially stable and/or have paid out millions in lawsuits for shady business practices.
ACN is a company that supplies phone and data services.
You can make money by getting people to switch over to different satellite services, wireless and home security etc.
The reason I like them is because they promote services and name brands people are already using.
You aren’t pulling people away from companies they love in most cases.
I don’t have a link for you here, but they are everywhere in the US and several other countries.
The company in the network marketing niche I like the most is Global Affiliate Zone (GAZ).
They don’t have quotas and you don’t stockpile product at your home or office.
There are several products and affiliate offers to choose from.
The big difference here is that they are more of an educational platform and they teach you how to advertise and market online.
You can leave your family and friends alone and instead advertise to strangers without the face to face sales meeting and frequent rejection.
Here is a link if you want to learn about GAZ:
