Except very few, most of the MLMs are scam. To make money in MLM one should join at the beginning itself. Otherwise the market is already saturated and there is no takers. However, even in MLMs if the system follows Binary or Pyramid scheme then it is not accepted as genuine as per Indian laws. One should get commission on every sale. But some MLM companies ask you to match left and right position with equal points. This is a clear case of fraud. The companies hold money of the people who have not completed the other leg. Before joining the MLM look at their product, if they themselve manufacture like AMWAY it is genuine. People who use other's products and add huge margin and promise you huge commission, it is a clear SCAM and anytime you will lose your money or credibility from your downline people. Today, internet is providing good affiliate marketing and anyone can earn, you can check, www.money4many.info for more ideas.

Nothing works on its own unless we work, Network marketing is one of the best opportunity provided we take it seriously, unfortunately it has got a bad name because a common man can get himself registered n buy a kit but most of the people want that the person who has sponsored them should work for them n they fail. secondly i ve observed that 99 percent people don't take any pain to understand business plan and never try to develop any presentation skill , they feel shy to discuss opportunity because they themselves don't understand it , the easiest they find to blame introducer or the company.This business is hardly 10yrs old in India ( fact is it started with Peerless nearly70yrs back) n in every co.u will find few people earning 5 L/month , many earning 1 L /m itz a clear cut indication of the strength of MLM industry. I ve come across many WISE ANALYSTS who say that hardly 10% people are successful in MLM, they are right but they dont know what % of people become Dr/Engg,/pilots . ...more

Really a person wants quality Time, Money, Security he can choose a biz model of MLM, THis will work if a person has burning disire and a mentality of serving others. But choose the one which has a best support system . Because most people will be in work background and they dont how to do the biz. So a good support system will help them to do in their spare time . AS an webdesigner i think this is the best method of increasing the personal development and freedom of time,money and secutiry. Our former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam once said that India will become a developed contry by 2020 only when the percentage of enterpernership raises. I think if a guy should become a business men this is the best way.

If one wants freedom of money, time and space of working, then he may go with MLM, Sky is the limit for MLM, You don't know where your prospect will develop his market and you will earn some money from his part of business. thats why it is working and spreading in all businessess, Everyone wants time freedom, with MLM you can work and enhance your business anytime, anywhere. Whether in train or in bus or in meeting or in seminar, This is human nature that he talk with people and shares his experiences. here is an example : One man can suggess other to buy particular things from particular shop or particualr brand. No shopkeeper is going to award first person as he has given some business to him. but again this is our nature. So if you are convinced and want to utilize your natural ability, you can spread your business in form of MLM.
