    hi guys,

    so my friend has this multi level marketing business going as an affiliate of course
    and he really has no clue where to start after spamming his own family and friends
    and annoying them to death. *chuckles, so yeah I know close to zero about this industry
    and I feel facebook is a vindictive place to start and a business page might be inappropriate
    given it isn't really his own brand to begin witho_O. Anyone have any success in this affiliate industry
    not the usual CPA Stuff but products which he actually sells. Kinda tricky,
    love to hear if anyone has ventured with such mlm types of affiliate businesses before
    Love to hear your thoughts on this

    Best advice, tell your friend to get the fuck out fast and start something real!

    mlm is shit, I know dozens of people that have tried and failed.

    I think mlm to advance for a beginner
    First you need to be a afflicate master and know how to get traffic by the hour ,then learn cpc and then learn adsence .

    Methods i suggest learning before diving into mlm.

    Affiliate (( learn to promote a product, learn to get heigh volume of traffic for a product, learn to make a sales page or landing page .))

    Adsence
    (( learn to postion the adverts to get best results and clicks, understand best niche, learn wordpress and adding themes).

    Once you master the above, and can do it just via blinking a eye and earn good , then move onto mlm.


    For those that dont no mlm read.

    Multi-level marketing (MLM) is a controversial marketing strategy in which the sales force is compensated not only for sales they generate, but also for the sales of the other salespeople that they recruit. This recruited sales force is referred to as the participant's "downline", and can provide multiple levels of compensation.[1]Other terms used for MLM include pyramid selling,[2][3][4][5][6] network marketing,[5][7][8] and referral marketing.[9] Many pyramid schemesattempt to present themselves as legitimate MLM businesses.[10] Some sources define all MLMs as pyramid schemes, even if they are legal.[9][11][12] MLM is illegal in mainland China.[13][14] According to the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), some MLM companies constitute illegal pyramid schemes which exploit members of the organization.[15][16][17]

    MLM is one type of direct selling. Most commonly, the salespeople are expected to sell products directly to consumers by means of relationship referrals and word of mouthmarketing. MLM salespeople not only sell the company's products but also encourage others to join the company as a distributor.[1][7][10]

    Companies that use MLM models for compensation have been a frequent subject of criticism and lawsuits. Criticism has focused on their similarity to illegal pyramid schemes, price fixing of products, high initial entry costs (for marketing kit and first products), emphasis on recruitment of others over actual sales, encouraging if not requiring members to purchase and use the company's products, exploitation of personal relationships as both sales and recruiting targets, complex and exaggerated compensation schemes, the company and/or leading distributors making major money off training events and materials, and cult-like techniques which some groups use to enhance their members' enthusiasm and devotion.[9][18]

    Like, spamming every possible social media group you can find? Be sure to not use your personal account tho. I can imagine the notifications and backlash if ever.

    I have a friend that ventured into this MLM BS and he's frustrated that we are not supporting him. He then posts this "business" of his on the regular and it's annoying as f*ck. so we unfollowed him. I'm surprised that he fell for this shit actually, we thought he's a bright kid.

    MLM is BS . If you are really that good of a salesman to successfully sell overpriced products, why on earth would you PAY too much for acquiring those products from MLM company. Find products and stock yourself from good source. Don't let them siphon you (or your friend).

    You have the spirit and drive, why waste it on MLM? Not trying to flame, but at the very least you can pursue dropshipping.
