What is an MLM company?

MLM stands for multi-level marketing, and these companies are also known as network marketing, direct sales or party plan companies (or, controversially – pyramid schemes ). MLM schemes have been around for years, and popular MLMs include Amway, Avon, Arbonne, Herbalife and even Tupperware!

Why are MLMs anti-MLM?

A big reason to be anti-MLM is that MLMs prey on people who they see as being desperate. Stay-at-home moms, college students and military wives are often prime targets for MLM huns because they are often bored, eager to make money from home, and with broad social networks ripe for recruiting. Chronically ill people are also attractive to MLM recruiters because they can be told ‘hey – want to make an income while you’re too unwell for a regular job?’#N#Stay-at-home moms are especially vulnerable because they can simultaneously be guilt-tripped (‘don’t you wish you could financially contribute to the household?’) and have their loneliness taken advantage of. MLM recruiters know that new moms are often isolated and craving adult company, and so they promise to connect them with other moms and provide them with an entire community of supportive new ‘friends’ who understand exactly what they’re going through and will be there for them.#N#Other people that fall victim to unscrupulous multi-level marketing companies are undocumented migrant communities who are desperate for work and lacking the knowledge to properly understand what it is that they are getting into. The Netflix documentary Betting on Zero talks to several Latina families that lost their entire life’s savings to Herbalife after being told that it was impossible not to make big money in the company (Herbalife was later fined $200 million and ordered to ‘start operating legitimately.’)#N#It would be one thing to recruit vulnerable people if you were genuinely providing them with a great business opportunity, but when you KNOW that there is a near impossible chance of these people making any money (because you yourself are statistically not making any money and your recruits will make less than you) and proceed to encourage them to invest their last $200 into an MLM regardless, you are almost as bad as the dude sitting on top of the pyramid cone-shaped object.

What is the downline of an MLM?

The people underneath you in an MLM are known as your ‘downline,’ and additional commission is earned from the initial ‘investment’ that everybody must make in order to join the MLM. You see, in order to be part of an MLM, you first have to purchase their products in bulk as well as purchasing a training or starter kit.

What does it mean to be a network marketer?

Being a network marketer means that you, by default, become annoying. With your only potential customers being your family, friends and social media followers, you have no choice but to endlessly bug those around you to buy your products.#N#We’ve all seen those girls on our friends lists whose entire feeds are aggressively promoting Monat shampoos or Arbonne face creams, and even the posts which are not explicitly selling products are promoting the MLM ‘boss babe’ lifestyle. I actually saw an Instagram Arbonne babe posing with her friend’s newborn baby with the caption ‘It’s days like today that I’m grateful I work for myself…I didn’t have to ask a “boss” if I could take the day off.’#N#Yep, that’s right. MLM huns are exploiting using their friends’ babies in order to recruit people to their downlines (if you think that the aforementioned caption was anything but clever marketing then you’re a dummy), and it doesn’t stop there. I’ve seen MLM gals use everything from their friends’ cancer diagnoses and deaths to terror attacks as an excuse to guilt-trip people into buying their products (not surprising why so many people are anti-MLM when you think about it).#N#As if all that isn’t doing enough to alienate MLM huns from their friends, MLM schemes actively encourage their distributors to cut ties with anybody that isn’t supportive, saying that they should just forget about what everybody else thinks, cut out the ‘haters’ and focus on living their best #girlboss life.#N#Anyone in an MLMer’s life who questions the pyramid scheme multi-level marketing scheme and whether their loved one is making the best decision in investing into it is dismissed as a ‘dream stealer,’ or someone who is ‘stuck’ in their 9 to 5 and ‘brainwashed by society.’#N#It may sound dramatic, but MLM destroys families.
