by Robin J Emdon
If you are anything like me, you are constantly being bombarded with ‘get rich quick’ schemes on social media and in your emails. Not ALL are fraudulent! There are some very simple ways to spot what’s legitimate and what’s not. However, listed below are some suggestions for what I call ‘Red Flags’ – things to look out for that almost certainly are flagging up that it IS an illegal Ponzi schemes. First, what IS a Ponzi scheme? In a sentence… A Ponzi scheme is a fraudulent investment operation where the operator, an individual or organization, pays returns to its investors from new […]

Why Do So Many People Fail In Network Marketing?

by Robin J Emdon

Actually, there are several reasons people fail in Network Marketing. Some you will already know, some, if you’ve already ‘failed’ up to this point you may feel uncomfortable owning up to, and some just happen because the training was just not good enough. First off, let’s kick the ‘scam’ argument out the window. People do NOT fail because Network Marketing is a scam! It isn’t! Listen, I’ve had first hand experience of scamming plumbers, builders, car mechanics, retailers, ebayers… in fact, you name it, ANYTHING that provides a product or service has its scammers!  True, there are scams within the […]

Network Marketing – It’s Not About The Products Stupid!

Why are the products the LAST thing you should look at before joining a Network Marketing (MLM) company? This is one of the HARDEST things for people new to MLM to understand. It doesn’t matter whether you market jungle juice, holidays (vacations for my American readers!), health and beauty products, cleaning products, legal pre-paid or whatever… NONE of these are the MAIN product of MLM companies. I used to be a retailer with four high street type stores and I sold a lot of the above. And absolutely, I would have picked something from that list and said THAT is […]

Let Go of The Haters and Losers – Fire Your Upline and Achieve Your Potential!

by Robin J Emdon
Leaders Are Created, They Are Not Born! It doesn’t matter how old you are. It doesn’t matter what your circumstances are. It doesn’t matter how many times you’ve failed in the past or how much you’ve failed in the past. What matters is, are you ready to step up now and become a leader now?   Haters and Losers Experienced marketers will ALL tell you they have had more than their fair share of ‘haters’ and ‘losers’ giving them grief about whatever. To folks new to marketing, it’s always a shocker and it’s a big reason people quit before they realise it’s just a minor obstacle that is easily overcome. […]

A very simple but powerful message for you today. Even if you don’t have a single person in your MLM business, if you’ve yet to get one retail sale, do you really understand what you have at your fingertips? Let me quantify it for you. I’m going to work from two assumptions. First, you want a long-term RESIDUAL INCOME from your Network Marketing business (i.e. your MLM Business). i.e. you want an income paid to you for the rest of your life regardless of whether or not you are working the business anymore. Second, you are prepared to do whatever […]

Illegal Pyramid/Ponzi Schemes Vs The Real Deal – Can YOU Tell The Difference?

by Robin J Emdon
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last few months you cannot have helped but noticed the plethora of business opportunities and making money investment schemes that are constantly sweeping through the internet. But how can you tell the difference between a legitimate MLM (or Network Marketing) business, and a Ponzi scheme OR an illegal pyramid scam. First things first. There IS such a thing as a booming, healthy and LEGAL (Multi-Level Marketing) MLM industry. It’s vast, (estimated to be worth $100 billion per annum)  it’s powerful and it’s highly lucrative for anyone who takes the time and […]

Ray Higdon joined his current network […]

The REAL Maths of Network Marketing Exposed – The Diamond in the Rough!

by Robin J Emdon
The Real Maths of Network Marketing They Were Too Scared To Tell You! By now you’ve all seen the maths of network marketing? The exponential growth? You know… recruit 5, who recruit 5 – that becomes 25! Duplicate – it becomes 125 and again and it becomes 625 and on and on it goes. You also know in the REAL world, it never works out like that! You might only recruit 3, two of whom drop out and the third only recruits 2 and so it imperfectly goes on! But you KNOW THIS! It just proves the model isn’t perfect […]

Is The Recession Your Biggest Challenge or The Greatest Opportunity of Your Life?

The potential for the current recession to turn into a global ‘depression’ that could last for years has by no means passed. On the contrary, many analysts far more ‘in the know’ than I are saying the danger has not yet passed. So, where does that leave you and me? How do we survive a deep recession? Well, whatever you currently do for a living, doesn’t it make sense to be involved in an industry that traditionally ‘booms’ during a recession as opposed to an industry that traditionally recedes? It’s perhaps easy to forget, since the last boom lasted for […]

The 95% Fail at Network Marketing Myth – Busted!!!

by Robin J Emdon
‘95% of people who join a Network Marketing Company fail’ – we are told! Well, from my own experience and stories told by others I’d say THAT’S TRUE! BUT! BUT! BUT! and BUT! What does that prove? It proves two things things. 5% DON’T! And we (and they) can build a substantial residual income by engaging in the skills training and working their business The 95% that ‘fail’ – simply failed to engage in learning the skills and working the business and they QUIT! Here’s my very simple point! When someone says, they “tried Network Marketing and it didn’t work.” […]
