Network marketing is all about creating repetition within your organization. People want to be able to duplicate the success of their upline. Huge repetition happens when something is already successfully in place and can be mirrored by others.

Even though, it takes some time,I think that works. I use it for intangible products (services) or just network your network! I got great results.

Absolutely correct, network marketing is a good option in times of recession. Network marketers deals with products and services that will be promoted to the customers. There will be demand always for products and services. So, network marketing is the good option for all time.

Wow - all these guys love network marketing and...surprise, surprise...link to their opportunity of choice in their sig. Why am I not surprised? Nice job!

Man I would love to see the forum institute a "no sig" policy until someone contributes a number of decent posts. Drive-by pitchmen like this really ruin the forum for everyone.

Oh - and I happen to think network marketing is great for some folks, but would never start a once sentence post in a forum just to pitch my op.

You are right. One way you can tell they are drive by pitchmen is by the low number of posts most of them have to this forum. Good observation.

I too happen to think network marketing is a good thing, but unfortunately the industry gets a bad reputation due to faulty claims and a lot of sizzle but no steak.

However, I would not want the forum to disallow the sig line as it would ruin it for all of us who are trying to develop a credible reputation on this forum, plus in my opinion there is powerful Search Engine Optimization value from having back links to your main website from this forum. Although you do have a point to have a certain number of posts before you get the privilege of a sig.

Respectable thread actually. :tu

I've been involved in NM over the years and found one I like now, but it's people that screw things up not the product. If people weren't involved it'd work perfectly........but that's not gonna happen.

10 years and running....still the most-loved promotional product!

I founded my own company on this principle and I am glad that others agree that I made the right choice. I feel that in order to be successful in business these days you need to create a system where everyone helps each other win with as little risk possible.

the challenge is to persuade others to join and to project this network marketing scheme to be legitimate and not shady
