Is Sell What You Know a scam, an MLM (multi level marketing) or a pyramid scheme?
MLM’s or multi-level marketing businesses (also known as pyramid schemes or network marketing companies) operate by having a non-salaried workforce selling their products on their behalf. And that workforce typically has people below them also selling the company’s products, from which they derive a commission. Notable examples of MLM companies are Amway, Avon, Tupperware, Ann Summers, Pure Romance etc. etc.
So those businesses generally have tangible products which they supply to their network who then sell them on without the company needing to do any marketing or sales of its own.
And because this system typically has many levels with associates building networks of their own, and those networks also building networks below them. Is where the name ‘multi level marketing’ comes from.
Our business on the other hand is nothing like that at all. We are a business education company. We sell one education program directly to our own clients through our own marketing and our own sales.
Our clients do not sell our products for us. We don’t take any commissions on what they sell themselves. We don’t have tangible products. We don’t have any network setup of any kind at all. And our clients do not have any networks recruiting for them either.
So there are actually no similarities between what we do and MLM’s whatsoever.
However I do know why some people believe this to be the case.
Sadly, in the online space, there are a few individuals with little or no integrity who will write ‘reviews’ or ‘scam checks’ of legitimate businesses like ours in order to mislead people into thinking that the legitimate business is a scam of some kind in order to direct those people towards their own product or service.
Which itself is actually the scam.
They will use scary words such as MLM, pyramid schemes, scams, etc. or infer that the legitimate business has little to no chance of providing success in order to scare potential clients away from the legitimate business, and then claim that their business is far easier/cheaper/faster to get success.
Automated Wealth Secrets is a notable example of this kind of behaviour.
Frankly I think it’s an appalling marketing tactic. As it amplifies and preys upon people’s fears and anxieties.
If you feel like you might have been misled into this way of thinking. I urge you to go back to the website where you saw the review and take a closer look. As you’ll likely see on the page, there is an advert on there for their own product. And if you scroll down further, you’ll see a lot of keywords posted on the page to come up in search results when people are researching our business.
