Do You Know any Network Marketing (MLM) Leaders in India?
My 2 partners and I (combined groups of over 750,000 distributors, sales of more than $2 billion, and more than $12 million in earnings in our last 3 companies) are expanding a company into India and looking to meet people with network marketing experience. If you are a network marketing leader, or know of one, contact us at: email@example.com
We have over 4,000 people in India that have registered so far with us during the pre-launch and are looking to expand our leadership team..
By the way, if you do not know any, do not leave any comments. I don't need your opinion on what you think of the question, nor your opinion on network marketing. I find it hilarious to get such comments from people who have never achieved our level of success..If you are a leader or know of one, great..Please reply...If not, please don't...thank you!

It all depends on what you mean by "right". If you mean is it right for you, sure, if you are into scamming your friends and family or making less than a minimum wage teenager.
The MLMers always present it the same way with these dubious claims:
Its a beautiful model to distribute products because it cuts out all the middle men and marketing people – yet it now inserts layers and layers of people who have nothing to do with the actual sale who now get paid, thus in fact making the items MORE costly. You will rarely find an MLM company that offers cheaper than traditional methods…its just that MLMers are in denial.
There are 10 million distributors worldwide, meaning it’s a legitimate method of sales. MLM companies do $100 BILLION in sales worldwide, meaning it has a huge impact – Now, do the simple math…$100 Billion divided by 10 million distributors equals $10,000 in annual sales per distributor! Even at 100?ommission that is less than minimum wage. Of course, there are a few making money, but the averages speak volumes…you can bet if there are many millionaires there are FAR more people earning less than a few hundred bucks if anything at all.
MLMers will tell you that ALL businesses are a pyramid set up the same way as any MLM company…even one poster suggested a comparison to McDonald's. To the extent that the people at the top are making more money, it is true – the major difference of course is that in any company, the people at the bottom are in fact making a wage…whereas in MLM the people at the bottom have to pay money just to meet their quotas thus meaning the people at the bottom are losing money. Would you rather be earning minimum wage at McDonald's or working your MLM business 40 hours a week and having to pay in just to keep it afloat? Go back to the averages, if they all average out to only $10k in annual sales, you know there are WAY too many people losing their shirt in MLM.
MLMers will tell you that you have the luxury of selling the products and teaching other to sell the products and therefore making money off of their efforts too – what they don’t tell you is that there are not any MLMers who could actually sell enough product on their own efforts to make a living…they NEED to recruit other people. Of course, in MLM where everyone is a millionaire and everyone has the best product, they will all tell you that you could easily sell enough products by why bother when you can do so much better my recruiting others. Don’t be fooled, that is not the true reason.
MLMers will always tell you that if they are not rich themselves, their upline is very rich and there is your perfect example. However, ask to see a financial statement (such as a tax return) and you will inevitable be denied. Imagine someone wanting to go into business with you buying a franchise, and saying there is a working franchise of exactly the same type run by an associate who wants to help you, but you CANNOT see the operating statement for that business…you would RUN RUN RUN. Well, if MLM was a true business opportunity, it would be no different.
MLMers will tell you that they have the perfect model of sales – yet the system is set up so that there is incentive for the sales people to recruit as many competing people right in your own backyard. Anyone who has ever had a sales job knows that territory is critical to a proper business model, thus setting up a McDonalds right next door to each other is ridiculous if you are the franchised owner, but the head corporation doesn’t care. How will you feel if you are all set up with your new business, and next thin you know your own upline just signed up someone else that has all the same contacts. It’s a counterproductive model.
I could go on and on, as there are many more reasons. You will find that all MLMers will come up with one liners to justify pretty well any objection you can think of and will label anyone who objects to MLM as either a failure or a negative person. Use your own intelligence though, as MLM just doesn’t add up.
