    Admittedly, I tried networking around five months ago. I did very well when I first started, getting six sales (Recruitments?) in a short two weeks or so, garnering much praise from my uplines. But after a month in the business, I noticed something peculiar about the entire system. Let me iterate ...

    The end of every presentation of the company I joined was always a presentation of the choices you have. The speaker says, before you make a decision consider this --- Start a business and 9 out of 10 people fail in their first five years. Join a company, and you will forever be in the rat race, seeing your salary go up at the same rate inflation does. Own your own franchise, and believe it or not, five out of ten franchises fail. -- Now when the option turns to networking, the question is asked, which one? Then the presentor goes on saying, only one is a Dunn and Bradstreet 5A1 company, only one is a hypergrowth company, etc etc ... But the fact of the matter is, the presentor never mentions the success rate of that particular networking company.

    When I left networking, the company had 20,000 members, with 82 executives or so. That's not even a 1 percent success rate! When I mentioned this to my upline, he quickly answered that there were many qualifying executives and within two to three months, that number will triple. But think about it, so will the number of members.

    Think about it, there's something fishy about the entire scheme. Don't be fooled by what people say. And when they encourage you to investigate, look at the points they least stress. Don't look at the millions per month statistics, look at the millions who quit per month. And ask yourself, why?

    I could go on bashing networking for hours on end, but I have made some friends because of the entire thing, so I won't. To those who network, good luck, but I have had enough of the gimmick.

    I joined one a couple of months ago and I was content with it. However, I am doing it after office so it was not so good for my health. Now I am into another networking business and I can say, there are responsibilities and requirements to be met. Nothing is given for free, you have to work to reach the financial freedom you seek. In six months, a year or more I might reach my goal, but as of now, I am happy with the extra income I am getting from it. give it another try, there is a product and marketing plan fit for you.

    The Bait. The Catch. The Kill.

    What's your beef on MLM or Pyramid Selling. Any experiences you want to share?

    Agree with joe. You need to run the numbers.

    1) How easy is it to sell the product?
    2) How much money can you make selling product?
    3) How much money can you make after you recruit people who sell the product?

    The third question is really important. If it's set up so that you make more money recruiting, it's time to wonder.

    We signed up one of our employees for Amway once. Cost us P2800 or something like that. Then we bought stuff and calculated the commissions. Then we recruited somebody (another one of our employees), costing us another P2800. Then the first guy stopped selling and gave all the business to the second guy. We made more in commissions, obviously, since we now had two income earners. In about a year, we made back our P5600 from selling to relatives, friends, and ourselves.

    The products themselves, I think, are expensive and difficult to sell. It's much easier to convince someone to join and pay P2800, make a commission and move on.

    There is a fine line between MLM and a Ponzi Scheme.

    If you want to make money by making someone else a sucker, run for Politics instead.

    May Angels smile upon you,
    Joe
    ps. don't get me wrong there are legitimate MLM opportunities... and there are get-rich-quick schemes.

    I was with High Dessert before and its true, you earn money without selling.

    The thing I hate about multi-level marketers is that they wont get straight to the point when asking yout to join. Ang daming ek-ek. Come to the seminar, no selling crap, why don't they just tell me how it works. I'm not afraid of selling. Just tell me the products you use, how your MLM works and I'll decide if I want to join. Don't waste my time going to that crumy old seminar. I've been there for the nth time!!!

    I'm with Forever Living, and it has some really darn good aloe vera health/beauty products and a decent at-your-leisure points scheme.

    But there's a culture associated with MLM's that gnaws at me. People I know who seriously get into network marketing are taken over by it; their lives revolve around the business. There's so much enthusiastic materialism it's almost cultish, and more than a bit unnerving. Just attend a seminar, and you'll see what I mean.

    By the way, anyone here with SkyBiz? Who's willing to pay $110 a year for webspace and email that you could get from any free service on the web?

    hahahaha, im with skybiz and my auntie's with forever living kaso she's based sa australia, you should see how she offers those products, and how many people buy from her..... I went out with her once in australia and she sold about a dozen lotion something na aloe... bilib ako.....

    brownpau... yes you can get free web space from the internet and to tell you frankly, i'm still a bit skeptic about this... something that has networking in it seems to have a negative attitude towards it....

    The reason why i joined is you get a webspace that doesnt have advertisements or banners in it plus you get to earn money for yourself... plus its only 2 mos old so you can recruit a lot of people pa, the compensation is also very good.....
