What is a Scam?

Or how about Gifting Clubs.

I don't care what they tell you onrepparttar Website to make you believe it is all legal. I don't care what they say about Gifting being a time honored way of sharing. To do it in a program like this, is illegal. It will get shut down, and most people will again loose money. Onlyrepparttar 122551 ones who start it will getrepparttar 122552 big pay offs.

I see both types of programs being offered allrepparttar 122553 time. Don't fall for them. If you want to have any kind of reputation DO NOT promote these kind of things.

"But what aboutrepparttar 122554 ones who get in first… won't they make money?"

They can, but think about this. Think aboutrepparttar 122555 people who will be asked to join later. Think aboutrepparttar 122556 money they will be asked to pay. Think aboutrepparttar 122557 money they are going to loose because allrepparttar 122558 greedy fools who are going to join have joined and they can't find anyone to cover their costs. Think about allrepparttar 122559 people who will be out ifrepparttar 122560 thing gets shut down byrepparttar 122561 Law.

Most of these things never get big enough forrepparttar 122562 Legal Authorities to get involved. They just die of their own wait. Are yourepparttar 122563 type of person who can sit back and tell yourself, "It's all right, I got mine."

It's not all right.

You are setting people up to loose money if you join and promote things like this.

But just because someone sets up a Gifting program or a Chain Letter type deal, doesn't make them scammers. They may haverepparttar 122564 best intentions and honestly believe what they are offering is perfectly legal. It isn't, but they may think it is.

In case you haven't noticed, PayPal is coming down hard on a lot of Network Marketing companies. They are not doing this on their own. MasterCard and Visa, arerepparttar 122565 ones who are forcing them to get out of Network Marketing companies. Why? Becauserepparttar 122566 Credit Card Companies are getting hit Very hard with Charge Backs, and Fraud. Stolen Credit Cards are being used all overrepparttar 122567 World to join Network Marketing companies. The Thieves clean up, andrepparttar 122568 Credit Card Companies and sometimesrepparttar 122569 honest programs takerepparttar 122570 hit. MasterCard and Visa have both long had clauses in their contracts that people could not use their services for MLM type programs. Now they are enforcing it.

Ifrepparttar 122571 company you are with has not had these kind of problems, they will and they should be prepared for them. Companies that are going through this, are not all scams. In fact my guess is that if this happened to a scammer, they would just close up shop and move on with whatever money they could. A Real Company, will find a way to work aroundrepparttar 122572 problem.

Sorepparttar 122573 next time you read someone calling this or that company a scam, think. It maybe a perfectly good company that is working through some problems.

A Real Scam is something that is set up just to take your Money and Run. A Real Scam will not try and work through problems. They will just pack up and go on to something else.

A Mailing List, Now What?

Written by John Olson

Continued from page 1

Well, we all know how hard that can be. We need something to putrepparttar Personal touch intorepparttar 122550 impersonal Web.

That is why I tell you to Build that Mailing list. It gives you a way to be personal with people you hope will find something in what you are offering.

We can write every week, and let all these people in on what we think. We are really making friends. And it's that what old Time MLM people told you to go to too introduce your programs to? Friends…

As you write to your list, write a bit of yourself. If it's been a bad day, orrepparttar 122551 car died, orrepparttar 122552 Sun finally came out after a month behindrepparttar 122553 clouds, those kind of everyday things are things you can write a little about.

Think ofrepparttar 122554 people you are writing to as your friends. Because, they are. Be Yourself… You don't have to write Super Marketing pieces, you can just tell them about what is going on in your life. Try and keep it at least interesting, but let them in on your life.

Is there a fun family soap opera going on you could write about? If uncle Bob, still trying to catch that squirrel that's been chewing uprepparttar 122555 garden? How'srepparttar 122556 new job your daughter just got going?

You can even talk about great family trips you've taken. Anything that you would write to your best friend about, you can write to your mailing list about. And of course, you will keep them up to date on what is going on with your Program.

The Internet is or can be So Impersonal, but with a mailing list, you can drive some personal back into it.

When people get to know you, when they get to trust you, then they will join with you in your programs. It's that simple.

Build that Trust withrepparttar 122557 people on your Mailing List, and they will follow your lead….
