The new paradigm, will it work?

The cost is way out of proportion compared torepparttar value ofrepparttar 122539 product. You can join thousands of safelists for free or for about $10 per year. Sorepparttar 122540 product is only an excuse to have a program.

These programs either promise that it will be easy to promoterepparttar 122541 program or that they will do allrepparttar 122542 work and place people under you. These promises are much likerepparttar 122543 promises of a typical ponzi or pyramid scheme. There is a very good chance that these programs are illegal and will face federal scrutiny.

These programs feed onrepparttar 122544 desire for quick riches without doing any work.

As one of these programs grows they must recruit an ever larger number of people every week (for a weekly program) to keeprepparttar 122545 program working. In fact they must, atrepparttar 122546 least, double every week. Many ofrepparttar 122547 people that join cannot afford to pay $150 a week with out seeing a quick return on it. So if they do not receiverepparttar 122548 promised two signups quickly they may drop out ofrepparttar 122549 program.

There will be a constant battle to get new signups under a new member beforerepparttar 122550 member drops out. When a member does drop out that member must be replaced quickly before his upline decides to drop out. Thus, ifrepparttar 122551 growth does not double every week,repparttar 122552 program could easily start collapsing on itself. As a program grows it will become increasing harder, and eventually impossible, to maintainrepparttar 122553 growth. Then it will start to collapse.

Those that startrepparttar 122554 program or joinrepparttar 122555 program nearrepparttar 122556 top can make some very nice money. However, those that join later will have a hard time to just break even.

These programs violaterepparttar 122557 work ethic. Men are to work for their bread. To expect it to be given to them with no work on their part is wrong.

I think that we will see more of these member-to-member programs appearing onrepparttar 122558 Internet. Many of them will not last long. Other will stay around for a long time, but with an ever changing membership.

When you are introduced to one of these programs you will have to decide what you want to do with it. As for me, I will be staying with traditional network marketing programs and affiliate programs. Programs that have a legitimate product that offers a good value forrepparttar 122559 cost. Programs that pay you on your marketing efforts and are likely to be around for a long time.

Though 2-up programs are used with monthly pay programs, they are most popular with one-time pay programs whererepparttar payment is fairly high

Downline Clubs

A downline club is a program that many members can join and they all enter a MLM program together. Most downline clubs are free, but some do charge a small fee. Most downline clubs will not join a program until they have at least 1,000 members. Some were created withrepparttar 122538 intent of joining one specific program. Others will join several programs over a period of time. Some ofrepparttar 122539 downline clubs that join several programs will do something to ensure that their members joinrepparttar 122540 programs in different order each time so that everyone has a chance to make money.

Which is Best

So should you join a MLM directly or join a downline club? This depends a lot on you. Are you a heavy hitter? How experienced are you with Internet marketing? How much freedom do you want in choosing programs to join? Most downline clubs join only forced matrix programs.

The advantages of joining a MLM directly is that you know whatrepparttar 122541 product is and whatrepparttar 122542 compensation plan is before you join. You can estimate how many members you need to sponsor before you make money. When you estimate how many you need to sponsor do not count on spillover. You may never receive any spillover. You should only join a program if you likerepparttar 122543 product and intend to use it.

The disadvantage of joining a MLM directly is that you will have to sponsor several people, maybe many people, before you start making money. You will need to marketrepparttar 122544 web site they give you. This could take time and money.

The advantage of joining a downline club is that with 1,000 or more members joining a forced matrix as a group it is much more likely that you will receive a commission checkrepparttar 122545 first month. The downline club should continue to bring members into a program afterrepparttar 122546 initial group joins, which should create some spillover. With a downline club there is much more of a team building spirit.

The disadvantages of joining a downline club are that you usually have no or very little control overrepparttar 122547 programs thatrepparttar 122548 club will join. Usually they are not announced until shortly before you are to joinrepparttar 122549 program. You may not want or likerepparttar 122550 product. You may not likerepparttar 122551 compensation plan.

What is my recommendation? Do both. If you find an MLM that has a good product that you want to use and you likerepparttar 122552 compensation plan, check it out. Is it fairly priced? If it has an “About” page, read it to learn what you can aboutrepparttar 122553 owners. Readrepparttar 122554 frequently asked questions andrepparttar 122555 terms. If you still like it then join it. If you are new to network marketing, then it may be better to start with a downline club.

When you see an interesting downline club try to determine what types of programs they will be joining. Will they joinrepparttar 122556 various programs inrepparttar 122557 same order or is there some plan for joining in reverse order onrepparttar 122558 various programs. Do you have to sponsor in order to have a downline inrepparttar 122559 programs they join? If they have already joined a program(s) do you like them?

Network marketing isrepparttar 122560 least expensive business that you can get into and be able to make a good income.

It is possible to make a great deal of money in network marketing programs. Those that make money know thatrepparttar 122561 beginning will be slow. They advertise and marketrepparttar 122562 program(s) they have joined. They are patient and do not give up. They adopt a winning attitude.

You too can be a winner in network marketing.
