Trying to find whats right for you can sometimes be hard to do online. There are too many traps, like the things they didn't tell you before paying to sign up, and hidden fees. So what percentage of online maketing programs or multi level programs do you think are scams? Maybe name a few that you know of, or have been scammed by.

If you call high pricing for a low quality product, then almost all affiliate products are scams. (Paid surveys, data entry, typist jobs etc.) That constitutes about 90% of the sites. I have even seen some e-books on "how to date", "how to be a man" blah blah. How come they sell these craps? I consider products of those type as scams.

Yes there is a lot scams online. Like all the survey. All the ones that tell you that you can make $2000./Day is not true. I would say about 95% of online marketing is a scam. I don't like the MLM way of working, I don't like to bug people with whatever it is that they want you to sell and the idea of put somebody underneath to have residual income is something that have a hard time to trust.

My opinion is I dun mind a MLM as long as they have great products that really work. I have tried an mlm product once and it was wonderful. Maybe I should try another similar product by another brand to broaden my horizon but so far that particular product works for me. As far as how mlm work, I think it does not differ much from the hierachy of a regular company but mlm will make regular people like me to have some experience to be a boss. Being a boss of your downline however have to be good yourselves (motivating and inspiring) because downlines are not to be 'bullied' as they are bosses of their own right.
