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

John Chow dot Com - how good is he really?

by Rudolf Faix 24. June 2015 16:23

John ChowJohn Chow is calling himself at his Facebook profile John Chow dot Com. That is a reason for me to take a closer look at his work and his offers. First I have taken a look into his free eBook, what he offers.

The title of this eBook is "The ultimate online profit model" with the subtitle "The Ultimate Guide to Making Six-Figure Monthly Income on the Internet and Living The Dot Com Lifestyle". The Acrobat file has 50 pages. After title, content and self-congratulation the eBook starts at page 15 with an explanation of "The Affiliate Marketing Model" and the disadvantages of this model. At page 22 starts "The Affiliate Marketing Model That I Use". There he explains the model that you should be a real reseller of the products, create your own brand and collect the email addresses for your marketing activities.This system is absolutely correct because the money is not made with the teaser or promotion articles. The money is made with the repeating satisfied customers.

At page 24 he starts already with the tools you should use for your marketing activities. Don't worry he is a good businessman and has not forgotten to add his affiliate links to the tools. The tools, which he recommends are AWeber and LeadPages. For hosting of the high expected traffic he recommends the service from HostGator. As each online shop needs to describe their products and make promotion for it he is recommending his own services IM John Chow, Blogging with John Chow, WP Blog Videos and Work From No Home.

A dot Com millionaire need to get a a lot of traffic to this sites. Such sites should rank nearly to Google (Alexa global ranking #1), Facebook (Alexa global ranking #2), LinkedIn (Alexa global ranking #14), etc.

IM John Chow:

Building a successful online empire from scratch

A typical site how is it today normal for affiliate marketing sites. You have a caption - in this case in the background graphics integrated - and a video, which is starting immediately. With other words nothing what search engines can use for generating their index for the site. The only machine readable text is the membership fee "Just $47.00 (Plus $47 a month if you remain a member of IM John Chow)" and the disclaimer from ClickBank at the bottom of the site. Such a site is normally a big secret in the World Wide Web. If you do not promote the site by yourself permanently you'll not get some visitors to this site. This get shown by taking a look at the global ranking from Alexa:

Alexa ranking of

A global Alexa ranking of 1,500,000 equals to around 10 unique visitors a month, around 1% will click on a promotion link and from this one, which are clicking on a promotion link will only 0.5% buy the product if the product has a good promotion. With other words this site cannot be the source of his income. If you like to close or leave the page a script will hindrance you and like to give you a special offer. After confirming two popups you are able to leave the page.


Blogging with John Chow:

This is a special site. Here shows us John Chow that he even does not know that there are server site scripts available. If you are using an ad blocker in your browser, then you get the following view:

an impressing screenshot of

As we see the dot Com millionaire has no real content on the site. Such a site is useless and will not bring any visitor from search engines. Even this site is a big secret in the World Wide Web. The global Alexa ranking shows it too:

The above Alexa ranking shows us that this is not really the site from where the millions of dollars are coming. For this we need to take the next one.


WP Blog Videos:

At this site we see again that John Chow or his web designer has no idea about the Internet and the functionality of search engines because the caption of the site is a graphic, which cannot get read from the search engines. At least this site contains more text, which can get indexed from the search engines. Anyway the content is nothing else than the usual self praising and he like to sell on this site a training for blogging with WordPress in seven modules for $97.


One of this modules contains SEO (Search Engine Optimizing). I think about which content the SEO training can have if John Chow proves already at his own sites that does not have any idea about search engines. OK, this site has more machine readable content then the other ones, but the Alexa global ranking show us that even this site is not the source of his income - the site has the nearly the same ranking like the site

Work From No Home:

By opening this site we get a nice surprise from the WOT (Web Of Trust) browser plugin:

If we continue going to the site we get the next surprise (I have used another browser):

Sold Out

This site is not his income too. Why does he name it in this case in his eBook? Only for filling the space?

After seven pages of unbelievable praising his sites, which have no success, he starts promoting the business from Matt Lloyd of Perth, Australia: My Online Business Empire" ( and "My Top Tier Business" ( This promotion starts at page 31 and ends at page 46. This promotion is highly exaggerated that it only can be a SCAM. I'll analyze the sites during the next days.

Summary: John Chow started with blogging very early as the blogs have been coming up. He made a good impression with his blog and he has chosen the right topic at the right time. His first book has been "Make Money Online: Roadmap of a Dot Com Mogul". He generated a few more books about getting rich from his blogs, The books are getting offered at Amazon. I think that he made a good income with his first book, but like every time a followup is never so good as the premiere. A copy of this idea with the same topic is already not possible, because there are already too many competitors at the market available. The trial attempts from above are showing us that he is searching a new income method. He tries it by creating a brand with his name. At the above ranking values we can see how successful he is by doing this. He seems to be a good writer but the ranking values are telling us another story about his attempt to be a business man.

As we can see at his sites he does not have any idea about Internet business and SEO. We can find a lot of his fails at his Facebook page (.pdf (79.64 mb)) too. It is no shame to fail - you have to learn by your own mistakes. It is only cheaper to learn by the mistakes of others. In the case of John Chow I ask myself if his "Ultimate Online Profit Model" is based on experience or is the source only his fantasy? Where ends the promotion and where starts the reality?

The only one of his sites, which has a good ranking is My opinion is that this site gets visited from the readers and fans of his books. These people are hoping to get rich too. Especially he has the best ranking in India - a low wage country where most of the people are very poor. He gives to the visitors of his page the dream of getting fast and easily rich. The only one which is getting rich with such a system is site owner and the people on the top of the legal pyramid.
