The Truth and History of MLM or Network Marketing

MLM Truth - Are MLM Service Companies Illegal?

Permalink 08/31/04 18:36, by admin, Categories: Motivation


We really don't know the truth. The TRUTH is that for regular NON MLM companies it is just fine to sell a service. Why then does selling services by MLM seem to create such a ruckus?

Let us know your thoughts.

The way I see it buying education or online tools by MLM is not less valid than buying them from non mlm companies. If Microsoft can sell CRM software to small businesses, why can't an MLM company do that too?

Or webhosting, affiliate programs sell it like crazy, and the internet sells that service like crazy. Why does this concept of doing the same by way of MLM create an issue?

We don't know, but would love to hear your opinion on the issue.

MLM Truth - Use Google to check out the person sponsoring you

Permalink 08/29/04 09:35, by admin, Categories: Myths and Answers, Motivation


One thing you should always do is use Google or some other search engine to check out your potential sponsor. There is a good chance you won't find anything at all about them. But then it is possible you will find out some great news about them too.

On the off chance that you find some bad news about them, just make sure you read everything you can about them to decide for your self if they are good or bad people.

There is a saying in Network Marketing or MLM and that is, "The first time your sponsor finds you in MLM, the second time you find your sponsor!"

Don't be shy to make sure the person enrolling you can really help you succeed!

MLM Truth - Melaleuca Horror Story #2

Permalink 08/27/04 14:54, by admin, Categories: Myths and Answers


Did you enjoy our Melaleuca Horror Story Yesterday? Want another one?

Ok, here we go.

I enrolled a fellow a few months after joining Melaleuca. He was EXCITED. He joined at the highest level with a value pack. You know we have all had those types.

The next day he calls me to say he wants to quit.

I was a bit surprised but have had enough industry in the MLM industry to not take it personally. I asked him why.

He told me his wife had joined Melaleuca over a year ago and it turned out she hated the products and Melaleuca had refused to let her return them.

I asked him to let me have a try at fixing the issue. He agreed and brought me an UNOPENED value pack. Not sure how his wife determined she hated the products when she never even opened the box, but oh well.

I called Melaleuca and asked them what could be done knowing it was over a year ago that she had purchased this value pack and knowing their return policy was only 60 days.

They thought about it and decided to accept the return of the old value pack knowing the new one was on the way to the husband. They promptly credited her credit card for the full value of the value pack and told her to keep it with their compliments.

Wow. What a horror story.

Needless to say, they have stayed a happy customer for over two years now and actually open the boxes of product, and actively order the stuff they like.

Guess sometimes it can work out for the best if you simply take the time to ask the question and plead your case. I am sure Melaleuca is not the only MLM company out there that treats its customers with respect. Let me know your good or bad stories about any MLM. Happy to put them in our training site for others to see once they have been verified as true.

Did you get the Alexa Toolbar yet? The alexa toolbar can help you find the truth about all those little companies trying to break your belief with their incredible growth!

PS. I am not active in Melaleuca and have not been for a couple of years. Still like the products but now with my MLM Consulting business and MLM Software business taking off, I simply can not be affiliated as a distributor with any company without creating issues with my client base.

Melaleuca MLM Horror Story

Permalink 08/25/04 12:21, by admin, Categories: Myths and Answers , Tags: dennis wilson, melaleuca, mlm, mlm horror, mlm software


Melaleuca Horror Story, what a funny thing for people to search for. I guess that is what sells. Bad news sells. Melaleuca Horror stories sell. I just noticed I have had 6 people this month find my site looking for Melaleuca Horror Stories. So I figured I may as well write one that happened to me if it is so interesting to people!

Well let me tell you my two horror stories about Melaleuca.

First, when I was involved actively in Melaleuca, on my first day a friend of mine who was at the time involved in Nikken joined my team. He was excited about the product prices. He decided to really get serious about the business.

Let me tell you about the Melaleuca MLM Horror Story that could have ended it.

He joined the "right way", as far as Melaleuca teaches it. He joined Melaleuca with a Value Pack which is kind of like the Home conversion kit. It is about $300 bucks and is a good value as the products are fairly discounted. It is a great mix of all the best selling products Melaleuca has. Cool right? Well, in theory it is cool.

He got his value pack and loved the stuff. Went started talking to a lot of people and even enrolled a couple. Then the Melaleuca Horror Story began...

He ordered some Acne stuff later in the month. Only half of it showed up. But also a second Value Pack and a box of energy bars called Access Bars showed up.

He sheepishly called me to say that he had been charged for the Acne stuff, but only 1/2 of the acne kit had shown up. I was concerned about this blunder on one of my new enrollees. Then he tells me almost $320 worth of extra stuff had shown up. He asked me what he should do.

I told him the right thing to do is to not just call and complain about the missing stuff, but also fess up about the nice $320 bonus he had recieved.

This is when the Melaleuca Horror story gets even worse. He calls and reluctantly fesses up about the extra stuff. He also complaigns about the missing stuff.

Here is what happened.

Melaleuca instantly sent him out the missing products from his order.

He then went on to be told he had 3 options on the extra stuff he had recieved. Ready for the meat of the Melaleuca Horror story?

Option 1 was to keep the value pack and extra stuff for FREE due to the inconvenience caused to him.

Option 2 was to return the stuff at his expense and have it credited to his account against future purchases(remember he never paid for it, so this is like a gift of $320 from Melaleuca, the Horror Story Company)

Option #3 was to return the stuff with a note that said he didn't need it credited to his account, but he was told the note would probably be ignored and his account would be credited anyway...

What a nightmare Melaleuca Story.

So he kept the products with Melaleuca's compliments, and went on to enroll 8 others in his first month. A lot of the new enrollees joined on the passion and integrity of this story.

So what did Melaleuca lose by giving away $320 worth of products?

Well their cost is probably 25% of that.

If the products had been returned, I imagine they would have had to be thrown in the garbage anyway due to tampering concerns.

Then the administration cost of processing the return.

Instead, they light a new enrollee on fire, who then brings them almost 30 customers before deciding not to continue with the business opportunity. 2 years later, almost 15 of them are still customers.

Seems Melaleuca is the winner by this decision.

Tomorrow I will tell you let another MLM Horror story about Melaleuca. You will be surprised by this one.

Not the kind of MLM Horror Story you were looking for? Send me your Horror Stories if you have them. Would love to read them and forward them to Melaleuca.
