Default When people say no to business.

I got this from another person talking about their initial start up fee. Look at what you get. Some examples. No payroll worries. No payment responsibility for down line. No direct funding for incentives. Minimum if any cost for advertising. Training. Etc..

You get it. What if your initial company associate fee is $100 bucks? For anyone wanting to start a business the MLM industry seems to be a great bargain.

Yes $100 is not much to start a business but the product your promoting has to be worth it. Most of these vitamin companies are ordering from the same place just a different bottle on top of that there is a shell game a lot of them play. For instance the autoship you sign up for most likely isn't a full month supply - for instance one top one only offers 28 pills per bottle. By doing the math you figure out that instead of them getting you 12 times now they have 13 payments from you. Almost like making that extra mortgage payment but instead the company is profiting major time by taking advantage of its customers. I would say the majority of Network marketing companies are this way with only a handful being customer friendly. Trust me I have a huge excel worksheet when I looked at what type of business to open. The more I investigated the further from it I moved.

Fitness your right about the things that go on in the industry but as always it's up to each individual to do their due diligence. I'm not a big fan of autoships but I do see why companies do have them.

Thanks, good idea. Do you think it is ethical to bring up how much other MLM co. cost? Or is that in bad taste?

I think it depends on the way you bring up how much the other company costs. If you use the technique to denigrate your competition you're probably decreasing the level of respect your prospects have in you.

Comparison of costs, along with how comparable the product is, is an often used technique. But in my opinion you should approach it with care.
