Title MLM - Multi-level Marketing/Network marketing
Founder (Various)
Description

Multilevel Marketing is selling products by using independent distributors and allowing these distributors to build and manage their own sales force by recruiting, motivating, supplying, and training others to sell products. As can be seen from our Amway Quixtar Motivational Organizations entry, sometimes these schemes can make use of the same mind control techniques that abusive cults use. Most MLM companies make their main profit out of the sales of instructional material to their salespeople. Some shocking MLM stats: gambling and MLM compared. Example: The odds of winning from a single spin of the wheel in a game of roulette in Las Vegas is 286 times as great as the odds of profiting after enrolling as an Amway/Quixtar  distributor.
