Almost Everyone Loses Money in MLM

Standard

Don’t let your Facebook friends fool you: They’re not making money in the multi-level marketing company they keep pitching to you. And you won’t either. Multi-level marketing is not a business.  More than 99% of participants in multi-level marketing (MLM) lose money. Companies like Mary Kay Cosmetics promote the “income opportunity,” but when the vast majority of MLM distributors say they lost money, the story changes to “they didn’t really want to make money,” or “they just did it for fun,” or “they didn’t try hard enough.”

The truth is that MLM is not a “business opportunity.” Almost everyone who participates is guaranteed to lose money. You can follow all the instructions, talk to everyone you know, invest money in the scam, and you will still lose money. Why? Because MLM is nothing but a pyramid scheme in which all the people at the bottom of the pyramid will lose money.

This video was published in 2016, but the information is still very relevant. It features victims of the Herbalife “business opportunity.” They put lots of money, time, and effort into their “businesses” and ended up losers.

The fact remains that all multi-level marketing companies are abusive systems which take money from the participants, offering them the (false) opportunity to earn money, knowing that they are virtually guaranteed to lose money.

    Thank your for your article and video. I have to agree, MLMs are “legalized” Pyramid Schemes. They do this by selling a product or service that is overpriced compared to others in the marketplace. I have the feeling that they were expecting to do great with Social Media, but the opposite is happening as people are now sharing their bad experiences. I can only hope that the FTC ruling with Herbalife applies to other MLMs and people could finally realized what a scam they are as a “Business Opportunity”.
