Network Marketing and Pyramiding has a very big difference. In fact, due to the organizational structure of almost all conventional companies, they are all considered as pyramids. Yes, network marketing is not really for all but for those determined to build their networks, financial freedom can be theirs  :rakenrol:

I was awaken by this article.
I never thought na tama nga pala na nabanggit dito.
Even traditional business are made up of pyramids (CEO/owner at the top, managers at the top, many ordinary employee at the bottom)

Either you are employed in traditional business or working out your MLM, dun ka lang kikita.

Of course, its given fact on our traditional job, yung owner ng company ang by default kumikita on our effort in exchange for his risk in opening up the company.

although hindi  cohesive itong first post mo, magandang initiative na gumawa ka ng article about this.
ang concern ko lang, u entitled your article "Pyramiding vs. Network Marketing" pero u failed to discuss the difference between the two. nagconcentrate ka lang sa benefits ng networking at sa pyramidal structure ng traditional businesses&companies.

sabi mo
"Lately, I opened my mind again into the potential of network marketing. ... I decided to join one"
kelan yung lately?
ano types of products? ano name ng company? kahit initials lang. these are very basic infos so u dont have to tell me na 'sa PM na lang di-discuss'.


since hindi mo nadiscuss yung difference, it's my responsibility to share it here para malaman ng lahat na gusto sumubok ng MLM:
Network Marketing, Networking, or MLM = legal
Pyramiding = illegal

main differences
MLM
- has saleable, & affordable products
- a member mainly earns from selling products (either directly or indirectly; 'indirectly' means yung taong naengganyo mo na sumali ay nakapagbenta ng products)
- mejo mabagal ang kitaan, lalo na sa umpisa
- ang kita ay based on performance. therefore pwede mo malampasan ang kita ng upline mo kung mas masipag ka sa kanya
- tumatagal ang kumpanya dahil solid ang foundation , which is product movement. usually, 10-30+ years na ang kumpanya

Pyramiding scheme
1. usually has no saleable products
2. usually 'front' lang ang products
3. usually, mahal or overpriced ang products
4. usually, mabilis ang pagkita. kasi sa bawat marecruit mo, may kita ka agad.
5. a member mainly earns from recruitment, hindi sa pagbenta ng products.
6. ang kita ay base sa kung sino ang mga naunang sumali (pyramidal structure). therefore hindi mo pwede malampasan ang mga uplines mo kahit gano ka pa kasipag.
7. since nakabase sa recruitment ang kitaan, hindi tumatagal ang kumpanya., kaya walang magandang track record. usually +/-2-5 years lang ang lifespan ng kumpanya


* upline/sponsor = ang taong nangengganyo sa isang member na sumali
* downline = ang taong naengganyo mo sumali

^nice post fE, totoo yan.  Yung valid / legal MLM has products na pwedeng tumagal sa market.  Merong masang pwedeng magsupport sa demand ng products.  Unlike those engage in Pyramiding na hindi sustainable ang product.  Often they masked their operation by pretending that they are  selling 'products'.  Pero sa totoo lang, kahit Kulangot, ibebenta nyang mga hindororopot na yan, makapangloko lang.

Nice post here sir Tyrone, and nice blog on the difference and how would one person recognize that MLM is a scam or ..

in a sense MLM is a pyramiding scheme I agree...  it's also a form of Direct Selling, (I'm not a networker but there's a lot of sources available in the internet), so as to answer sir/mam CJOY's question... other direct selling such as Amway, Nuskin.

It's better for people to figure out themselves rather than listening to other people's personal opinion and criticism... better to experience it first because in the end you'll learn something from it...

I myself been victimized by Ponzy Scheme FrancSwiss (which for me is not MLM), just promising people high returns on their investments.

About Avon: Nautusan ako dati na bumili ng nursing bra tsaka some kind of moisturizer. Hindi ako pinapasok doon sa store mismo sa Taft. Pinapunta muna ako sa likod na building.May nagbigay ng temporary card( Pagkakaintindi ko, para makabili ako sa store mismo). May group name tsaka group leader yung card ko. E di ba, parang instant downline na rin ako nun?

@mam cjoy, nagbayad ba kayo ng entrance fee or kahit anong fee bago kayo nakabili or di rin kayo nakabili...

ang pagkakaalam ko kasing siste ng Avon.. only members lang nila ang pwedeng bumili sa outlets nila (for a discount) which is for them (the members) yun na ang kita nila...

@sir tyrone, so Pyramiding is not equal to Pyramid Selling tama ba?

Pyramiding only focus on recruiting in my opinion based on your article.

            I am a member of AVON (VIP) ,am way,Nu -skin and was a member of herbal life( i had those shakes para pumayat pero it wasn't for me talaga) before. Direct selling ang Avon,i have been using their products for 15 years,though i don't direct sell them.it's for personal use lang but some friends would buy from me but i give them the membership price,mahal ko sila eh. :hihi:.We have this brochure and outsiders can buy too according to the prices stated in the brochure.avon members can get a 25% discount once they buy products worth 2400 pesos.( taiwan case yan ha,dunno sa Pinas)
