With the economy still sputtering, some people may be looking to alternative means to make a living. One possibility might be network marketing or multi-level marketing, your BBB® has information concerning things of which to be aware when considering these programs.
Multi- Level Marketing
Prospective participants in any merchandising plan involving consumer products should realize that successful achievement and advancement depend on the sale of those products to consumers.
To be prudent, potential participants are advised to weigh all the facts involved in establishing an independent business and to check state and federal requirements.
Due to various distribution levels within some marketing plans and lack of territorial restrictions, the possibility of saturation can exist; therefore, a wide variation in earnings should be expected.
Another thing to keep in mind is that you may be required to purchase some product to have on hand when making presentations.
Be wary of any offer that seeks payment to participate in the program with little or no discussion of offering a product.
