Reader Curt S made this detailed comment on the post What would you say on national TV?
“The concept of network marketing is very simple.
How many times have you told someone “you gotta see this movie” or “you gotta read this book” or “you gotta try this restaurant”? Well, they take your advice and tell their friends and before you know it the book is a best-seller! That is how a network of people works.
Now, what if you got paid for every book, movie or restaurant you recommended? That would be great! What if you got paid every time that someone you recommended a book, movie or restaurant recommended it? That would be better wouldn’t it?…”
What Curt writes is common lore in MLM. How many folks came in because they heard that story? How many use it today, to recruit others?
But – is it a true story? Or is it the biggest misconception in network marketing?
