The MLM Revolving Door Syndrome

Written by Linda J Bruton

Inrepparttar 15+ years I've been involved with network marketing,repparttar 122490 number of people who come and go never cease to amaze me! Sometimes it seems like a revolving door.

Onrepparttar 122491 positive side, thousands of new people discover network marketing allrepparttar 122492 time. They have always wanted to start their own business and are attracted byrepparttar 122493 huge income potential of MLM. Or they need a part-time source of income. Or, perhaps they've been caught up inrepparttar 122494 huge, never-ending layoffs and corporate downsizing that seem to be a permanent part ofrepparttar 122495 new information-driven economy. They see network marketing as a way to escaperepparttar 122496 Rat Race forever!

Whateverrepparttar 122497 reason, they are entering this industry in droves. And that is good news for you and I!

Onrepparttar 122498 negative side, however, most of these people flounder around for months, or even years, like a fish out of water, and never really discover how to make network marketing work for themselves. They buy into too much ofrepparttar 122499 hype and half-truths that seem to proliferate in MLM advertising, expecting a large income in just a few months without much work or investment.

Unfortunately, some of us continue to promote this image of network marketing, even though we know it is completely untrue!

Perhaps that explains why so many newcomers believe that all they have to do to be successful is just send out a bunch of spammy emails andrepparttar 122500 money will come rolling in!

I've spent a lot of time and effort showingrepparttar 122501 newcomers in my downlinerepparttar 122502 kind of work that is necessary for success. But all too often, these newcomers pay little attention to it. They've seen allrepparttar 122503 ads telling them that they don't have to do any work, that a certain program practically builds itself, or their upline will be giving them massive amounts of spillover.

They don't seem to understand that this is a business, not a chain letter game. And all too often, this is partly our fault. Some of us are so eager to sign up new distributors that we'll tell them anything.

So our MLM newcomer may run out and send out a few over-hyped, anonymous emails to a cheap list and then wait forrepparttar 122504 money to roll in.

When nothing happens, our unhappy newcomer then decides "the program doesn't work." (How many times have you received an MLM mailing withrepparttar 122505 words "This one really works" inrepparttar 122506 subject line? I get them allrepparttar 122507 time).

That starts our newcomer on a frustrating journey from one MLM program to another. They may join 5 or 6 all at once onrepparttar 122508 theory that at least one must work! They may sign up under a sponsor that promotesrepparttar 122509 "program ofrepparttar 122510 month," and jump into everything new that comes out. Never does it enter their mind that "programs" neither work nor don't work!

MLM versus Pyramid

Written by Gino Harteel

Many people don't knowrepparttar difference between MLM and pyramid, and I must admit sometimesrepparttar 122489 line betweenrepparttar 122490 two is very thin, but as a simple rule you can seerepparttar 122491 difference rather quickly by asking yourselfrepparttar 122492 following question ?

"What is more important ? The product or service or recruiting new affiliates or members ?"

A company, any company can ONLY survive when they sell products or services !!!

Then, and only then, they can pay you as an affiliate or member.

When you get commission on recruiting other members WITHOUT selling any product or service you are involved in a pyramid and my advice to you, get out a.s.a.p.
