Network Marketing is never bad if communicated in a proper manner, but if is promoted giving wrong inputs then people are going to upset about it, if they don't get what they were told about. So always do a good research before joining a network marketing program. A program that gives you maximum returns for your work.

that is right. if network marketing is bad, why we earn extra ordinary income, it is because we duplicate our time and effort to other people, people are bad that is why the system goes bad. if you will join in network marketing, you should have the right company, right products,right marketing plan, and right timing. just like in school, people pass, and people fail. can you blame the school? no! because the one that we should blame is the student who did not study hard and strive hard. just like in network marketing, there are many people that succceeds in network marketing.

I've have been searching for such a company, and I have found one such company which is giving more than 95% of the profits to the members. Company Name is Seven Rings International.

Network marketing is simply a way to sell products. Almost everything is sold that way if you think about it. It is idea is abused by SCAMMERS who use it to defraud people. I think Network Marketing and Multi-Level Marketing are too often confused as being the same thing. The first is simply marketing to a group or network of people. Usually people in your personal circle. MLM is really a pay structure where a percentage of sales from many networks flow back to a upper level leader. So it's good when used properly and bad when abused.

Thanks for your response. =) Actually, I'm planning to be involved in one in the Philippines, the Nu Skin Enterprise. The products are good since my friends are using them but I'm afraid I can't earn out of selling or referring people.=(

Just think about this. If network marketing is bad, why are these well-known companies integrating network marketing into their business? The largest insurance company in the USA, Travelers, with $1.3 billion in annual revenues, sells its policies and investments entirely by network marketing? Excel Telecommunications, with almost $1 billion in sales per year? Then there's Colgate Palmolive which has an MLM division called Jafra Cosmetics. Also TIME Inc. sells books through TIME-LIFE Direct!
