#27 Network Marketing

So, what is network marketing? It is the distribution of goods and services through a network of people called "distributors" or "reps".

From Wikipedia:
Multi-level marketing (MLM), also known as Network Marketing, is a marketing strategy that compensates promoters of direct selling companies not only for product sales they personally generate, but also for the sales of others they introduced to the company. The products and company are usually marketed directly to consumers and potential business partners by means of relationship referrals and word of mouth marketing.[1].

Have you ever been a distributor of a network markeitng company? I have probablyjoined as many a half a dozen but only becuase a friend persuaded me to do so. I was on his "friends & family" list. Anyway, at the moment I am not a rep of any MLM company. Never the less I am not at al adverse to joining a compaany whose products are staples in my household. Becuase I certainly believe in buying wholesale vs retail. (Over and above all of that of course, I prefer production at house, or in community, of everything that I need! )

These are the top MLM/Network marketing companies based on Alexa rankings. (This is a copy and paste from here.) This is probably more accurate for 2008 than 2009.
