I am someone who has done a bit of research on the structure of a mlm, and the criteria for its success. Most (if not all) mlms focus more on recruiting people to join, rather than product focus. If there is product focus, I have found it to often be a front, meant to disguise the recruiting aspect of suscess. I was curious if there are any mlms out there that fit these criteria... 1) Focus on sales of product more than signing up recruits (and reward members accordingly) 2) pay substantial bonuses/ commissions for product sales RIGHT AFTER YOU SIGN UP (meaning you can make money off commissions right away) 3) Have a QUALITY product at a COMPETITIVE price, which people either want or need 4) Company is willing to disclose average earnings for ALL members on any level. 5) Company doesn't have 97% or more of members losing money. (I'd settle for 50%) 6) Meetings for recruits disclose all facts and stats, and are not pressure events. I was a member of an mlm, and I realized I could be a millionaire if I tried hard enough. The problem was, the product commissions were lousy, the product price was not competitive (though in demand), and the only way to make real money was to sign up a bunch of other people and let them do the work (and by work, I mean signing up other people). However, I know that if I sign up 100 people, 97 of them will lose money and quit. I don't want that on my concience - I actually advised a friend NOT to join under us (there goes my $100 sign up bonus), because I didn't think that she would profit by it. And that was when I was still in the enthusiam mode!! If there is an mlm that fits my above criteria, I wouldn't feel rotten about referring people to it. If I knew there wasn't statistical failure in their future, I would be much more gung-ho about recruitment. And if the product was quality, and affordable, I wouldn't feel bad about sales. As you can tell, my objects to the mlms are moral. I just can't refer people to a system that rips them off - no matter how far it will take me! You could argue that people need to learn responsibility and do their research before signing up. I would counter that the meetings for recruits are high pressure, and misleading (member stats not shown). In essence, I'm looking to see if there's an mlm out there whose members on average net a profit (I'm not talking getting rich - just not losing money). Maybe I'm way off base, but ARE there any mlms out there that satisfy my 6 requirements?? Have a terrific day!
