I constantly hear that sentiment... "Jump on, because MLM is the wave of the future, the wave of the new economy; this is how all businesses will be running in the future..."
I've been hearing it for years. And I know it's not going to happen. No business model will work on a wide scale where products are deliebrately overpriced in a pricing pyramid which gives cheaper products to the leaders whose only advantage is that they got on the pyramid earlier
Oh, I have no doubt that it works, and it does make scads of money for people who can recruit and sell proficiently; but MLM is not something which will ever enjoy more than the niche market it does today, simply because the scheme doesn't work for anything bu t a small market. It draws on a large following of lower-level distributors to supply the needs of a smaller level of uplines without regard for the very distinct possibility of market oversaturation, product oversupply, or lethal product misrepresentation by uninformed-but-well-meaning distributors.
But I shall stop here. Wouldn't want to be accused of (giggle)
"slundering," would we?
(Just to be fair, I still use FLP aloe vera products, and I find them wonderfully effective, even at these grossly inflated prices. Nothing beats constipation like that aloe juice.)
