Is getting Referrals a Skill or Just Plain Pyramid selling???

And then getting your referrals to get referrals under them is more pyramid selling. Is that not a rip off?! What do you think?

I only refer people who are friends, whom I know are interested and will be active in sites, and I don't push them to invite their friends. That's entirely up to them and I also believe there's a right and a wrong time for referrals. I don't like to work "cold" because those people who are not familiar with you, won't necessarily work with the tool they have been given or indeed, support you. I do think it's pyramid selling if you refer everybody you come across or who comes across you on the 'net, and then you ASK them to refer their friends, or suggest that they refer their friends, because you're building yourself depth in numbers and asking them to build width... hence, a pyramid. This is ok in some instances but I don't think it has its place on sites like Mylot. Brightest Blessings.

That's a tough one! What you trying to do to me, Deeeky? The answer to that really is no, I suppose because they pay each downline the same, in effect. It's slightly different that they're doing that rather than getting a percentage from the next one down the line and also their referrals. It's too late at night really to consider this. lol.
