Greenbeanx: Its called a network level marketing right? Close to a cult in some cases. I went to a one of these business "conferences" Seems people who sign up are required to attend ever meeting and listen to CD regarding are the time about how great the company is.
JohnAnnArbor: I've never understood how these businesses work. I guess in a rural area, it might beat going to the store. But now with the Internet, isn't it easier to just order stuff on-line?
UNC_Samurai: I've heard that the new emerging market for these types of businesses is China. According to an NPR report I heard about three years ago, AmWay was set to explode over there because people could essentially guilt-trip their entire family into buying product.
LarryDan43: To run a successful pyramid scheme, or multi-level marketing company, you need to be based in Utah.
Galileo's Daughter: This is bad news for my coworker who sells it to me. Given the state of the economy, I can't imagine how well Avon/Tupperware/NuSkin or whatever other MLMs are out there are doing financially.
Kyoki: I really like their men's colognes. well, crap...
Kurmudgeon: Kyoki: I really like their men's colognes. well, crap...[s.ecrater.com image 300x300]I liked these too.
zerkalo: But where will I get a pink caddy now?
Earguy: Avon's on the list. If you have stock in any of the other companies, dump now, or hold and and hope a good company buys them out.
JohnAnnArbor: zerkalo: But where will I get a pink caddy now?That's Mary Kay.I saw a new Mary Kay pink Cadillac a few weeks back. Amusing.
Beta Tested: They didn't have much to say after that. I think I might have strung them along a little and done the math to show how little they made for the amount of work they did. But I am a jerk that likes math.
farkeruk: We got invited to some neighbours for a "garden party" that turned out to be the woman pushing her MLM bath stuff (not Avon who are pretty reputable). Left once I realised it and never invited them to anything again.
Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired: Does not approve
