    I'm wondering. I know a lot of them are pyramid scams, but are there legit ones out there? If so, could you name a few that you know?

    I want to have a product I can sell. I don't have special knowledge about anything so creating my own e-books etc I don't see how I would do it.. I don't know about what either .. But selling a product I'm interested in might be a great way to start and learn internet marketing/selling/entrepreneurship.

    Thanks for the replies and kind regards!

    Not too sure if this fits into what you're looking for but I tried Primerica for a little but and it seemed legit but just not what interested me. They have great selling and training material and it wasn't too expensive and seemed like the had decent commision and even helped you find leads. Other than that most are a complete waste of time and commissions sucked ass on them. like averaging $15 dollars on a 500 dollar sale. I wanted to throw up when I heard that.

    Pretty much out of all the ones I've heard of they had the highest average since most have an average of less than $500 a YEAR, but I bet the average internet marketer is paid less then 6k a year, If you can generate leads. Personally I would say away from all MLM companies since most, if not all do not allow selling their products online which is garbage. Invest in yourself and learn the skills needed to make it in this life.

    You probably don't see the BS advertising I do from them when recruiting where they paint a picture of success that in reality is this:

    I've had face to face conversations where they attempted to recruit me but I have a background in Insurance/Investments sales so it was easy for me to see what was being offered was not the opportunity to put people in a better financial situation so much as to me building a downline so I was in a better financial situation.

    MLM is built around hype, that is why whichever company you join in one of these schemes will probably have 2-3 meetings a month just so they can pat each other on the back and tell you how easy it is to make lots of money by showing other people how to make some pennies!

    The truth is, most of them are probably making next to nothing and if you are lucky enough to find any suckers people to join your down line they will not stick around long enough for you to earn the thousands the hype has told you about.

    Pretty much you have to have the personality to sell this garbage which most don't, and still how would someone look at themselves in the mirror every morning defrauding people out of their hard earned money. I'd rather do cold calls then recruit for these monkeys. Plus more and more people are being aware that these get rich quick schemes are bogus and even harder to find the gullible people. It's a cancer.

    There are legit MLM/Network Marketing companies out there but the average person makes very little money from it.
    Seriously, I would advise not getting involved with MLM and look at something else.

    Oh how I despise Advocare. The people who really get in it harass you to no end about how good it is. That's not MLM, that's a cult lol

    Couldn't agree more. The whole "get 5 friends and they get 5 friends involved and if you do that often enough, you'll end up with a good income" is rubbish. If your 5 friends approach 5 of their friends and so on, this can only happen 14 times before it exceeds the population of the earth. Also, most MLM's get their "distributors" to buy stock to keep their rank and percentages which make up most of the actual sales of the product. Very little of the income is based on genuine sales.

    Ah, hold on - found it:

    Not to mention as in my case, the "friends" will most likely end up as ex friends.

    Seen too many fall outs between some lifelong friends when they poke their noses into each others financial affairs.

    Very rare to find friendship turn into a business without a fight.

    I never knew the Orange County Choppers motorcycle business story. When I read about it I was dumbfounded. The dad and the sons broke up, they had constant internal fights over the business. That's just one example between very close people.
