Get Poor Quick Opportunities #2

Post it note Please NoteSo we all know that Multi-Level Marketing is pretty much a ripoff in the business industry. The FTC (Federal Trade Commission) reports that 99.9% of all MLM businesses are pyramid schemes based on recruiting other members to make money. This is illegal and to add to the previous list the following companies have now gone under and many people have lost quite a bit of money and time by believing in what’s touted as a “Sure Thing” or Great Business.

Here we go Again, however this list is Specifically for MLM Businesses:

MLM’s Now Defunct

To expand on some multi level marketing/network marketing lingo and definitions take the time to read this.

Multi Level Marketing is a controversial marketing strategy for the sale of products and/or services where the revenue of the MLM company is derived from a non-salaried workforce (also called participants, and variously known as “salespeople”, “distributors”, “consultants”, “promoters”, “independent business owners”, etc.) selling the company’s products/services, while the earnings of the participants is derived from a pyramid-shaped commission system.

Although each MLM company dictates its own specific “compensation plan” for the payout of any earnings to their respective participants, the common feature which is found across all MLMs is that the compensation plans theoretically pay out to participants only from the two potential revenue streams. The first stream of compensation can be paid out from commissions of sales made by the participants directly to their own retail customers. The second stream of compensation can be paid out from commissions based on the sales made by other distributors below the participant who had recruited those other participants into the MLM; in the organizational hierarchy of MLMs, these participants are referred to as one’s “down line” distributors.

MLM salespeople are, therefore, expected to sell products directly to end-user retail consumers by means of relationship referrals and word of mouth marketing, but most importantly they are incentivized to recruit others to join the company as fellow salespeople so that these can become their down line distributors leading to further losses for the person that recruited them.

So as always, Stay Informed and –

Until Next Time …

Considering Choices & Modifications

Just as supports and modifications are necessary to fly a plane, supports are also necessary for your success.  Some of these supports might include:

  • Attending a conference or training related to your needs,
  • Getting help from government or community agencies,
  • Having a support person that has more experience that you can tap into, or
  • Getting equipment that will help you learn info or save time, and of course …
  • Listing Your Links!

It is your responsibility to determine what choices you need to make to succeed.

The types of modifications you decide on will determine whether you stay on course.

If you decide to make changes you know you won’t keep up with or put into practice, then you’ve chosen to fail.

Questions to Help Guide You

  1. How will you measure your progress?
  2. When will you measure your progress?  Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly?
  3. What will you need to do Daily in order to make progress towards your goal?

It’s when You Don’t Take Action that puts you in that dreaded majority group of people that achieve failure.

For you, this Step RIPS you away from that and Forces you to Review, Change,  and Take Different Action if necessary.

Success is in your Daily Actions, Not your final results.   If you’ve been doing that all along, then forge ahead with what is working and your daily success with those little changes will guide you right to the middle of the target.
