Why MLM Doesn't Work For Me
When I first started Internet Marketing, I thought it would be a breeze.
As you can tell from the above statement, I was very naive!
Of course, I went through all the usual things newbies always go through - posting links to FFA pages, receiving a zillion responses, jumping from one thing to the next...YOU know!
And for some reason, the items that always caught my eye were MLM. Of course, at that time I didn't even know what MLM was!
Now, I don't want to knock all MLMs. Some of them are legitimate businesses and are really great. And some of you may be making a fortune at it. If so - great!
In fact, for me, the promise of $30,000 in 30 days was just too good to pass up! All you had to do was pay X amount of dollars and get 3 others to do the same, and so on, and so on.
And what did you get for your money? Usually nothing, or something that you could get for free anywhere but had to pay $49.95 a month for.
Or you join a new MLM opportunity while it's still in pre-launch. YAY! - you sign up 1,000 people underneath you! Launch day comes. Guess how many become paying members? ZERO!
All this time, joining one "opportunity" after another, you're shelling out the money.
But you're also learning. Slowly but surely some of what you read begins to sink in. You realize that some of the "opportunities" you joined were only opportunities for whoever started them.
The more I learned, and the more products I purchased, I began to see that first, I needed a product of my own; and second, that until I had one, I needed to be an affiliate of products I believed in.
There have been many things written about affiliate marketing (and I won't go into all of them here - maybe another article someday!), but it's been perfect for me.
Not only can I help others by recommending products, but I can earn money while doing it!
So while MLM might work out great for some, it's just not for me.
