not very helpful Paul, but thank you for your time, much appreciated!
Not massively helpful, I concede! But, in a round about way, we are trying to encourage you to be a bit more systematic about it than adding to a rather old thread. You could, for example, start a new thread on the topic.
But actually I suspect that forums like this are very low on the list of places to try. Most people genuinely do start with friends and family, and local community groups.
I see 'network marketing' gigs as a game, not a business. People (winners) can be successful and make a lot of money. They rely on these people to stand up and recruit more players. If it is a well designed game, the many losers feel as if they were not good enough, too lazy or generally did something wrong, so they do not protest, and some even want to play again. They may tell you it will be easy to sell X number of Y, and that's how many you should buy up front. If you sell them all, youll be making Z, a huge amount of money. You don't sell half of what they said would be easy, and you blame yourself. You take the hit and give them more money for another spin of the wheel. The rewards are not clear, and neither are the rules in many cases.
I am completely convinced by this new poster that's registered simply because he happened upon this thread concerning MLM scams.
I was invited to join the BNI locally about 8 years ago. I stupidly agreed to attend a free breakfast session only to find people condescending of my business and I think they thought they were a cut above. I know a couple of crooked businesses that are members of another branch/team/area or whatever they call it.
So my advice , buyer beware !
Bl**dy BNI won't leave me alone, chamber of commerce ain't no better and there's another crowd kinda like the BNI, can't remember what their called, 'numpties are us', somefink like that.
I design houses, extensions and loft conversions, so my leads are especially valuable to builders. That bunch of numpties aint getting them for nowt!
There are a few of them, often mimicking the format - though some are a bit less pompous than BNI
It always makes me laugh when I see people on LinkedIn randomly 'recommending' a list of people who happen to belong to their networking group
Not the networking the OP was referring to, but it always makes for a fun thread.
