Why is it Network Marketing Not Popular Here in MyLot?

I wonder why is it network marketing, which is a low-cost business with big-business potential not popular here in MyLot? All we see here are opportunities that will earn you little money and many times are scams that don't pay. Looks like people here are so engrossed with such opportunities there's no one here doing network marketing business?! It seems I am the only one here doing network marketing which gives me an extra income of $100+ per week, working part-time in the business, and we're just starting out! I'd like to know if nybody here who's in the same business and earning the same money, or even more? I'd like to meet you here to exchange ideas with. Why, fellow MyLotters. Why is it network marketing not popular here in this site when in fact it is a very good part-time business?

it may not be that no one want to do it but more to the point that we all want to make money but even doing the tasks here you are not always paid and those people who do it will not share

Yeah. I tried doing some tasks before, but I was disappointed. They asked me to do some things, like compromise the system security of my computer in exchange for small amount of money. I will never do it again here. What I am trying to picture out for other members here is that, while most members here in MyLot are sooo busy working for cent, people in the network marketing industry are making a lot of money. I have seen it with my own eyes. I have a friend who is earning $6,000 every week! And that's my goal, to earn like that too! The tasks are easier, like using the product the network marketing company recommends, and sharing the products to others so that others will also become members of the company, and then you get paid every time they consume that product. It's soooo much easier, and the best of all, you get paid every time they buy, a truly residual income opportunity, you get paid many times from the task you did only once.

I suggest you look into network marketing business opportunities. There are good ones you can find on the Internet, just like ours (you can find link on my profile). There are many network marketing business opportunities available to us, but some of them are only workable offline wherein you have to work it out meeting people talking to them convincing them to join you as a customer or a business partner. That kind of business may seem good for others, but not for me, and maybe not for you too. What I am recommending to others interested in this kind of money making is, find opportunities that offer convenience of working from home just using your computer and the Internet. With these new technologies (which are not new to us anymore), you can set your business to run in a nice way wherein prospects get attracted to us, instead of us chasing them offline. The online network marketing company provides us with websites to refer people to, all we have to do is drive traffic to those websites. One reminder for people interested in this kind of endeavor is, this is a business, not some kind of a job. In a business, you can rarely find opportunities which are for free. There's always some costs, like start up cost, operating costs, etc. So, unlike having a job where you can just sit down, work, and expect to get paid based on the work, here in this opportunity, you have to work it out like a business. It has some costs, but the rewards are greater than just working for a job.

How does it work? It sounds complicated. I think it is not for everyone, not for me, because I do not understand how these things are done.

It's actually simpler and easier. You become a member of the network marketing company by buying a product package, and then you enroll others who did the same, and start earning a percentage from their purchases, and every time they buy products. And those you enroll, will also enroll others to the business, making your team grow bigger and bigger and so your income!

Hi, I just want to comment on network marketing. I first tip my hat to you for being able to do this. Then I want to say a lot of people afraid of being scammed. But here on mylot we help each other. So just tell the rest of us, and maybe we would try it. Thanks anyway at least we know its possible. Popciclecold

Sometimes, it's just a matter of educating ourselves, of what is a scam and what is not. Network marketing can be a scam when the company and the people in it intentionally fool people. But if a business is built on "sound business practices", network marketing is a very legitimate business. It is a lot easier than what most people are doing here. It's about people telling other people about the product they are using (healthy coffee for example), and those people who buy into the idea will also tell other people about it, and so on, making the team grow bigger and bigger, and so the income. Another simple explanation of it is, people who have been told about the benefits of taking a product, recommends the product to others. Those who get good results with the product, will in turn recommend it to others, and so on. You as a recommender gets paid every time they buy a product package, and every time they re-order products. It's a lot easier because you only do it once, you only enroll a member once, and you get paid from that enrollment and every time that member buy products from the company, or every time they sell products to outside customers. You get paid over and over again. I think one reason why people shy away from this business inspite of being a good business is that, they are not inclined to business. They are not trained for business, sales in particular. So, they just settle working for a job. They think working for a job is much easier than working out a business. But for us, who have been in both worlds (working a job and working a business), we knew that working for a business is soooo much easier than working for a job. There's no 9-5 work schedule. There's no ruthless boss. Work on your pace, work on your hours. Work on a task once, and get paid over and over again from that single task accomplished.

One reason why I do not engaged is such kind of activity online is that I don't understand much how this kind of investment works. I know we need to invest so before I would join any investment it is necessary that I understand it. Perhaps you could share a little background or idea on that particular business so that we may be able to have a clear understanding of the matter. Have a nice day!

It depends on your location. I am living in a mountain. I have no luck with MLM.

I knew a lot of friends doing that in the internet and they are making good. In my lot I have not known one before you came. The reason maybe is in my lot they concentrate on discussion of a very interesting topic.

Why not share it with us since you have the proof that you already earned $100 a month. I'm afraid to try some mlm investment with no enough proof and somehow scam.

i think the reason why it is not popular is because some mlm are just a scam which might be one reason why people are scaref of entering into networking.but if someone would explain it here im sure a lot of people will jion in it.

I think the main reason is that it can easily turn into scam, which anybody is afraid of. For many like me, I prefer low earnings but sure. It's a big risk for me into invest soemtihng that I don't know and no guarantees to work. It might work for some, which is good but even in MLM business nothing is a gurantee. The yield might be high but it depends where you are form your first investment. usually, the pioneers or people who started the business have higher yields because they took the chance and many people are encouraged to invest. but if you don't have a good following, the reverse might happen.
