Yes, we use our mouths to talk to others about our programs or products, but that doesn’t make network marketing true word of mouth as that term is used and understood by the rest of the world. That’s exactly
why so many people lose their friends.
Here’s from Entrepreneur Media…
“Word-of-mouth is one of the most credible forms of advertising
because PEOPLE WHO DON’T STAND TO GAIN PERSONALLY by
promoting something, put their reputations on the line every time
they make a recommendation.” (Wiki, here.)
“Word-of-mouth marketing (WOMM, WOM marketing), also called
word of mouth advertising, is AN UNPAID FORM OF PROMOTION—
oral or written—in which satisfied customers tell other people how
much they like a business, product, service, or event…”
That’s why I recommend always alerting others in social situations
first, that you are marketing something, BEFORE you start promoting
it. So everyone knows before the gushing starts, that you are selling
(or sharing – whatever) it and that you will earn money if they buy it.
It’s PAID promotion now. See the difference?

Can’t Sell It?“) Have you seen that? ($5.95)
