part 10: MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) Business Opportunities

Multi-level marketing businesses all use a particular structure as part of their marketing strategies. The business operates around the idea of not only paying sellers for their own sales, but also remunerating them for new sellers they introduce to the company and giving them a portion of these new seller’s sales as well! This type of selling is also known as network marketing. This type of business creates a downline of distributors that form somewhat of a pyramid. Relationship referrals and word of mouth marketing is used to promote the products to direct customers and potential business partners. MLM business opportunities are known to be a powerful way to earn extra income both full time and part time. Wikipedia has even taken the time to make a list of global MLM businesses which you can view by visiting the following link: List of MLM Companies.
