Can You Make Money with Network Marketing?

by Rudolf Faix 19. July 2015 12:40

Pyramid SystemIt is conceivable to profit with MLM, in any case we trust it is profoundly unlikely. In his free eBook "Multi-Level Marketing Unmasked", Jon Taylor found that 99.7% of individuals will lose cash in system advertising. So for each 1,000 individuals who join a system showcasing group, 3 will win more cash than they spend. On the off chance to have 5 effective individuals in your first down line you’ll need to select 1,665 new individuals, so that 5 of them will be successful.

This may be a framework that "anybody can do", but at the same time it's a framework in which, just 1 in 333 individuals are effective. To attempt and comprehend why it is so troublesome for system advertisers to turn a benefit, we can take a closer look into the compensation plan of Amway, USANA, Herbalife and Nu Skin. Not surprisingly the framework for winning cash with every, are harmoniously one of a kind and comparable.

Each MLM has their own adaptation of paying commission and they are all offer comparative qualities. Shockingly we accept that they are organized in a manner that makes it exceptionally troublesome for anybody to turn a benefit in system showcasing. Case in point:

  • You need to "qualify" to procure any commission - You are honored "focuses" when you purchase items. This makes what we see as "manufactured interest" for the items. System promoting individuals are requesting item with a specific end goal to stay "dynamic". They arrange in overabundance of what they would by and by utilization or what they can on offer at a retail edge, which makes them stock heap the items.

  • The vast majority of the cash spent is by individuals - Network showcasing organizations recognize that next to no of their deals are because of retail request. The majority of the item being requested is by individuals for individual utilization (or to fulfill volume portions). Deals are not determined by business sector strengths; they are driven by individuals purchasing for volume targets. On the off chance that almost no cash is originating from outside the system, then the main route for individuals to benefit is to the detriment of individuals in their own particular down line.

  • It is a zero sum game - without natural deals, your up-line can just profit, on the off chance that you burn through cash. The stories you find out about the battling single guardian who is presently a mogul may be valid. Be that as it may they forget a critical point of interest, which is: Every one of those million dollars originated from different individuals from the system who are underneath them in the MLM progression (which is not pyramid paying little mind to how nearly it looks like one). Cash made by one individual from a MLM group, has been lost by another.

  • A System Prone to Negative Incentives - As we already noticed, the main way the vast majority makes any salary in system showcasing, is from marking new individuals beneath them in the framework. When you are in the framework, you're up line will get commission on any cash you spend. It is to their greatest advantage to instruct you to "you are ideal for the group" and to "continue spending that month to month amount". The more you spend, the more they win. They may accept that you can succeed in multi-level advertising, yet in all actuality, they require your cash coming into the framework with the end goal themselves should to succeed.

  • Multi-Level Marketing does not evacuate the center man - Direct advertising organizations will let you know that their organizations are "offering straightforwardly to you". Best case scenario, this is a misguided judgment, even under the least favorable conditions it's a deliberate distortion. You can arrange items specifically from the organization, yet they will pay a commission to the individual who enrolled you and a few others above you in the chain. They will let you know that you can possibly "acquire commission" from your down line. In all actuality you are getting to be another center layer in the conveyance chain between the supplier and your down line.

Why Do Multi-Level Marketing Members Want You in Their Team?

by Rudolf Faix 19. July 2015 09:13

RecruitingThe response to this is basic: Multi-Level Marketing organizations have a serious concentrate on selecting new individuals. They will drum it in that you must be fruitful in Network Marketing, on the off chance that you select more individuals and assemble what the greater part of them call a "down line". Fundamentally, it doesn't make a difference who you are or what your experience is. You are completely qualified to be a piece of a system showcasing group. Everybody is a prospect, and you should sign, as much as possible.

Individuals are urged to select everybody they know not their system. The attitude is something along the lines of: MLM is "something that anybody can do". On the off chance that you put stock in the framework, then is there any good reason why you wouldn't welcome everybody you know not a piece of it? The more individuals you sign up, the more you can procure from their movement. You can possibly profit from all the business produced from the individuals you enroll, as well as the individuals that they enlist.

Hypothetically, to construct a system, you should do nothing more than sign 5 individuals (first layer down line), on the off chance that they every sign 5 individuals (25 second layer down line), you have a system of 30 underneath you. In the event that your second line every sign 5 individuals (125 third layers down line), your own system has 150 individuals. When you've got 5 layers in your down line, you'll have a system of 3,905 individuals. Presently suppose you each enlisted 7 individuals rather than 5, then you'd have a system of 19,607! Be that as it may, why stop at 7? There is no restriction to what number of individuals you can enroll! So go out and sign the greatest number of individuals as you can. Sounds really straightforward - isn't it?

If you think so then think about why are getting Multi-Level Marketing Systems wasteful promoted? Let us take a look at the standard recruitment procedure of Multi-Level Marketing Systems:

  1. The first step is a delicate welcome.
    Somebody you know (or host just met at a get-together), welcomes you to “find out around an energizing new open door”. This is typically joined by some sweet talk along the lines of “I am just letting you know on the grounds that I think you'd be stunning at it” and “I just present individuals in the event that I see they can possibly succeed”. These welcomes are normally extremely dubious. On the off chance that you pose any questions, the answer is generally “tag along to the meeting and every one of your inquiries will be replied”.

  2. The second step is the presentation.
    The meeting you are welcome is a presentation of how that specific multi-level promoting organization lives up to expectations. This is normally not keep running by the individual who enlisted you. Right now you meet somebody in the “up line” who is situated as senior individual from the framework and in this manner a power on the subject. These presentations are frequently done in a gathering or even workshop a domain.

    Despite which MLM you are taking a gander at, the presentation, will inescapably take after a comparable configuration and will incorporate high vitality clarifications about:

    • Why Network showcasing is the method for what's to come. It evacuates the go between and gives cash back to you. The reasoning of the organization is to offer straightforwardly and spare cash on dispersion channels

    • How simple it is for individuals to succeed in MLM. This is something “anybody can do”. You don't need to be a sales representative.

    • The items they offer. They are not accessible in general stores in light of the fact that they are “too great”. The vitamins have helped explain a wide range of restorative conditions.

    • Showy graphs demonstrating to you the amount of cash you will make with even an unassuming down line.

    • Examples of overcoming adversity, another person was colossally fruitful, in this manner you can be as well! The stories incorporate clothes to newfound wealth story, and concentrate on the point that "this framework is your key to monetary opportunity".

  3. The third step is the hard sell.
    This is typically not done by the individual who selected you. The last push is keep running by somebody in their up line. It's the part when you are informed that “today is the best time to join”, and reminded that “everything you could ever hope for can work out as expected, in the case that you are a believer”. For the case that you are unwilling to sign on the spot in light of the fact that you are in need of more opportunities to legitimately dissect the open door the promoter will act like you are destroying his world and offended his mom and his religion in at the same time.

Did you get the value which you have for a Multi-Level Marketing system? Don't worry it is not the value of your personality; it is the value of your money and/or the value of your work-force in which they are interested. Don’t forget that you are only getting paid if you sell something and/or recruit new members. Some systems are even so clever built that your percentage are getting computed by using your sales and recruiting data together with the data from your downline. That is done for maximizing the earnings of the MLM company.

Spammer & Scammer: is rotating the survey offers from ClickBank

by Rudolf Faix 13. July 2015 09:48

By taking a look at the promotion I ask myself why someone goes for work a full month, if he can earn more then average within a few hours of work?

Such a offer sounds too good to be true. We know that everything, which seems to be too good to be true is not not true. The same situation is with the offer from They are promoting that you can earn for filling surveys. Nobody will pay you for filling surveys, they are only collecting your data for selling them in the best case. Promotion goes into the masses and no company likes to get the opinion of only a handful people, for this they are not able to pay you big sums for filling out some surveys.

The Chinese Terry Shi is rotating the Survey from ClickBank. Maybe he is hoping to get rich quick. He should think about it that he will only spend money instead of getting rich. Before May 12, 2015 he has been promoting the offer from Now he is promoting the offer for

Take Surveys for Cash

We can expect a lot fake domains, which have the same content like the original site. As scammer are lazy they let the content running in a frame or redirecting to the original site. Another problem is, that nobody will promote a way to earn like a CEO if he not need your money for his earnings.


By taking a closer look at the click4surveys website, then we find the reason why they are spamming the social network sites - it is their affiliate program. That is the way how the members of click4surveys are earning money with their unbelievable promotion.

We find at the end of the website a FTC disclaimer, where is written, that the person found in the testimonials/endorsment got paid for publishing their opinion. This show us already the fake:

FTC disclosure: The persons found in the testimonials/ endorsements on this page have received monetary incentives to publish their opinions about Click4Surveys. These persons were part of an initial trial group that received free access to the Click4Surveys program along with monetary payment for voicing their opinion about their experiences.

If I'm earning a lot from a little bit work, like one hour per day, nobody need to pay me for making promotion for this kind of work.

Even does not guarantee something. For this you need only to read the very small printed disclaimer at the end of their website. This disclaimer shows us that they not believe into their own system: Earnings Disclaimer: Every effort has been made to accurately represent this product and it's potential. Even though this industry is one of the few where one can write their own check in terms of earnings, there is no guarantee that you will earn any money using the techniques and ideas in these materials.

Conclusion: It is a typical pyramid system with the touch of MLM/affiliate marketing. Only the people on the top are earning.

A typical SPAM posting from

Fraud & Scam

Scam: -

by Rudolf Faix 13. July 2015 07:38

EPS ProsperityHotlineAn actual offer in the social networks has coming into my focus. The offer is "Make $25.00 For Every Email You Process And Get Paid INSTANTLY!". The offer has all signs of a scam from the kind "get rich fast".

A search for product, which shall get sold by this system, is completely missing. You get $25 for each member you recruit. The new members have nothing else to do then to you. The only way in which this offer differs from a standard pyramid scheme is that there is an extremely short “downline” (just you) and that the site owners are not part of the downline. The site owners are only earning $10 if one of the members order a site. Any way is it nothing than a pyramid system from which the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and The FBI Federal Bureau of Investigation is warning. In some countries is such a system even illegal because nothing gets traded.

A look at the domain registration of the promoted website, which should be a "Proven System since 2010", shows that the creation date is Feburary 5, 2014. For this it can be only an affiliate.

Fraud & Scam

Only Affiliate Marketing SCAM offers getting found at the social networks

by Rudolf Faix 4. July 2015 06:24

Pyramid systemAffiliate marketers are you really so stupid and think that you can sell money?

Do you not know that everybody knows that you cannot take out more from a pot than it is inside?

As long as you are not offering a product, which should get sold from the affiliates and the affiliates are getting their commission, is your system only an illegal pyramid system or Ponzi scheme!!! Participating and promoting in such a system can bring you only into jail.

A pyramid system is an unsustainable business model that involves promising participants payment or services, primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme, rather than supplying any real investment or sale of products or services to the public.

Various forms of pyramid systems are illegal in many countries including the United States and numerous European countries.

As Europe enforced the law that promises in the promotion are enforceable in front of law court, the illegal sales systems disappeared very fast. Only some legal systems like Tupperware, Jeunesse, Amway and a few others are remaining. Some of this companies even needed to change their sales and promotion structure to be conform with the local law. The story about Amway at WikiPedia shows how the law has changed the world of affiliate marketing. You should think about it before you promote such a system - especially if you are not able to pay fines of a few million dollars!

Why you are trying to sell money? Do you really hope that you can find some people, which are more stupid then you are by yourself?

In such pyramid or Ponzi schemes only the people on top are earning. The people at the bottom of the pyramid are only losing their money. It does not matter if you need "only" to pay a small sign-up and/or membership fee. In any case you can use this money in a better way or are you already so poor that you like to get a place to sleep and food for free of charge by going to jail?
