Is Joining Multi-Level Marketing An Answer To Financial Freedom?

I was a bit hesitant to join an MLM nowadays, since I already joined so many MLM's before but to no avail. Maybe it's because I'm totally clueless on how to choose the right MLM company before. I chance upon on this MLM company while promoting some of my websites on safelist. I read it over and over again, listen to their recorded audio trainings and searching google if they're good or not. After a week, I joined and no doubt this online MLM really rocks! One of the reason why I'm joining MLM is to earn additional money for my family. And this MLM was not promising instant success but for just 1 week of joining I already received money from them without recruiting anybody to join or selling anything online. I was shocked but it's true. This is the first time that I received my earnings from joining tons of MLM before. (lol!) I must say that this program will really stay and can help me financially in one way or another. Do you think that this is legitimate?

That's interesting, I wonder what kind of MLM that can be, that you already received money without any referral. Basically the only was to earn good money from MLM sites is to refer others, so you get commission from them. If you join early enough or have a lot of potencial friends to join, you can even make enough money to your living. This is hard as new programs easily can fail, while old ones are already full of members and it's hard to get new members to join.

Hi ! Did you pay anything before you have become a part of that Multi-Level Marketing? I think I joined several Multi-Level Marketing, with the same reason as yours. I also want to earn additional money for my family. at least, somehow, I would not be hundred percent dependent on them. If the company you joined to paid you fully and at the right time. I think it is not a scam. Would you mind sharing this Multi-Level marketing of yours? Thanks :D

Yes, I paid and in fact I'll be paying monthly to remain my account active. Anyway it's like Direct Selling that you have to maintain certain amount of personal purchase every month to remain active. It's basically the same system with direct selling. I already received $150.00 without referring, I already have a return on investment plus an income already. Imagine having this for less that two weeks is a feat on my end. I haven't received this from my previous MLM programs. Just check this task maybe it can help: www.mylot.com/nr/tasks/viewresults.aspx?t=19189

From what I understand Multi-Level Marketing is not legitimate ever. When I earned my Billing and Coding Diploma from college the college sent out my resume for me and got a bite for a job. I was so excited and showed up for the interview only to find that it was a Multi-Level Marketing scam. I was so mad. Things to look for, if they say the word 'level' 'pyramid' 'pay' or anything sound fishy at all to you run! If someone tells you that you have to spend money to make money don't listen to them. Sometimes you do have to spend money to make money... but not if someone is point blank asking you for it.

Almost had me Playingideas! The site looks interesting but I don't provide my credit card information to anyone other than PayPal. When I saw the only other alternative was AlertPay, I ran with the win. If you can get the company to get paypal approved, I would definitely check them out. Cheers, Stan

I for one have like you joined many MLM programs in the past and then left clueless. The promise of the others helping you to gain knowledge and build your own downline always fell through once they signed you into their downlines. The only ones that really profit off of these MLM programs are the ones that started the offer to begin with. The money they want from you to gain active status goes into their pocket and then leaves you scrambling to gain referrals in the hopes of making a profit. I for one have never had any success with MLM's and wish you the best of luck.

I dont think you are clueless at all. Those programs are designed to leave people in a fog. If they give too much information, they know people wont sign up. Anything with the words marketing or levels really scares me. None of that makes sense to me and I dont like joining programs that dont make any sense. Just makes it even harder to gain referrals if you cant explain the darn thing. There are more than enough ways to earn online these days and every little bit helps. The key to financial freedom is not having any debt and that is possible but there is also a huge price. Anything worth having requires hard work and financial freedom is no different. Good luck with your mlm program. Glad its working for you.

Maybe it is legitimate because many MLM nowadays learn something to those pyramiding scams that happened. I am also a part of MLM company it is my first time to join this kind of extra earnings, and I found it good because they really guide you and helps you to know the business and for me a personal development also was touched in the programs.
