I have a lot of people ask me about MLM programs which ones are good and which are scams. Before you sign up for an MLM program, consider looking out for a few of these signs that you might be dealing with something that is more like a scam than a true home business opportunity:More
Recruiting than Selling
One of the first things to watch out for is a focus on recruiting rather than selling. If the product is great then it should be about selling right? If you are being recruited in order to recruit more people of your own, rather than actually focus on selling the product, that might be a red flag.
What sort of training and support do you receive from the company? Have they avoided any questions from you about the business? Does the company provide you with actual business techniques and support? If the training consists of how to convince recruits, or tips on selling to friends and family, your “home business opportunity” might actually be a work at home scam.
Sales Tactics Brought to Bear on You
Do you feel as though you are the subject of a high-pressure sales when you talk to the MLM representative? You might be told that you have to make a decision right now in order to get a good deal on the initial kit, or to buy in at a “special” price, it could be a scam. Most legitimate companies allow you to talk it over with your family, or sleep on your decision.
