It’s Time to Rethink Network Marketing/Direct Sales

Network Marketing (NM) or Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) is a form of Direct Sales. It’s been around for over 60 years. It’s had some bumpy days, especially early on, when scrupulous  companies did things which were illegal. Because of that history, some people still think of Network Marketing and Multi-Level Marketing as scams and/or “pyramid schemes”. Legitimate network marketing and MLM companies are neither. Nearly every business you know of uses a pyramid shaped organizational structure. They are tested and proven methods of distributing products and services that are now, finally, gaining the respect of the larger business community, as evidenced by the many quotes from businessleadersshown below. These statements are copied from the video below here.
If you’ve been thinking that NM and MLM are dirty words, please take a few minutes to re-educate yourself and bring your knowledge up to date. Things have changed dramatically, for the good, but perhaps your thinking hasn’t. It’s time it did, so you’re not short-circuiting yourself when it comes to the legitimate opportunities that NM and MLM offer, which are especially helpful in today’s tough economy.
If you think pyramid structures are “bad”, consider the one you’re most familiar with:
