Top networking marketing opportunities, also known as multi-level marketing opportunities, run rampant on today's Internet. You've no doubt received some kind of solicitous e-mail or seen some kind of advertisement in the margins of a web site you've visited that talks about amazingly easy ways to earn thousands of dollars with a simple home based business.
The truth behind many of these "top networking marketing opportunities" is that they are using the sign-up fees from new members to pay dividends to existing members rather than actually generating any revenue from legitimate products and services. So no matter how much money they promise to make for you, if you can't see any discernable product or service of value involved in the opportunity, you can assume that this is one of those "top networking marketing opportunities" that is actually an out and out scam.
The truth is that for many of these top networking marketing opportunities, only one out of every fifty or a hundred people who get involved actually make the kind of returns that the opportunity dangles as a carrot in front of you. In fact, the actual numbers might be far less than this. It's never as simple as "pay for the secrets and start raking it in right away." Anyone who does make returns on these so-called top networking opportunities work hard to sign up plenty of other affiliates, many more than the "it's so easy" testimonials make it sound like you need.
When you come across one of the "top networking marketing opportunities" on the internet, guaranteed to help you retire and live easy within a year, be wary. Do your research and find out what people who have been involved in these opportunities actually have to say about their results. Make sure you research these opportunities on objective third party sites, not testimonials on the opportunity's home page. Keep your common sense, and good luck!
