Now in fairness, whether it's intentional or not, that's how many of these network marketing programs tend to mislead people to believe. Let's face it - and this is not an excuse to mislead people because I believe network marketers, for their own reputation, should be upfront with the statistics of potential success and failure, and by law they should be.
But if network marketers were to give these statistics, email list their prospects of accumulating leads would drastically be reduced. In the same token, as a network marketer, you want to keep you product or service reputable and not be looked at, as so many do today, as nothing more than a "pyramid scheme." In some cases this label may fit, and you should certainly steer clear of those types of programs, where nothing of value is being offered. There is no product or service that one can get a benefit from.
These programs certainly only benefit, monetarily, those who establish the program. These programs quickly "peter out," almost as quickly as they started because most people want something of value when forking over their hard-earned money. Plus the fact that pyramid schemes are unlawful. However, network marketing is a very reputable and profitable industry if your product and/or service holds value in the eyes of the end consumer.
