Cognigen is an MLM I stumbled upon a few months ago, focusing on the telecommunications industry, and also growing industries such as web hosting. I was a little suspicious about it, so I did some internet research to find out if it was a scam or not. The result? Not one shred of evidence to indicate that it was a scam. In fact, I read (but did not verify) that Cognigen stock is publicly traded. It gets even better...The Cognigen MLM program is free to join. Now that you know what Cognigen is, I'm going to give you some positives and negatives. What I like about Cognigen: The main thing I like about Cognigen is that it is free to join - you don't have to pay one penny to Cognigen to get started. They also have a lot of good telecommunications products you can promote, and last time I checked, on online mall with a wide variety of products. Also, they have a great incentive program, because for the majority of the products, you get commissions based on monthly billing, rather than one time commissions. You can get higher monthly commissions when you have downlines generating monthly billing. Why Cognigen May Not Be For You: If you are at all like me, you don't like face to face selling. While Cognigen does offer some training and support for alternate methods of making sales, the main avenue of sales is through direct selling. If, however, you are good at selling, Cognigen is definately a good opportunity to check out. Currently, even though I'm a Cognigen "agent", I'm not active in the business. However, now that I'm involved with internet marketing, I may start to market some Cognigen services online to see what happens. I know how to market products and goods for free online...the idea of getting paid a percentage of someone's phone bill every month is very appealing...and doing it with free advertising is even more appealing! Since this forum has rules about not putting in your own links, I won't include my Cognigen information here (and you won't find it on my website below either, although you will find out more info about internet marketing, but you can find Cognigen by just doing a web search. Its free to join and you have nothing to lose, so don't be afraid to just "go for it".
