Isn’t network marketing and networking in general, another name for ‘stealing’ ideas and claiming them as your own, case in point the movie ‘The Social Network’ which is based on a true story about one of the largest social networking sites in the world.
This story is now being cinemised and shows that when an idea is a great success everyone wants to own it and often with disastrous results, fracturing relationships/friendships and for what? A greed and lust for money (if it can happen to them, what chance has the regular Joe Smoe got?)
Doesn’t seem like the way to go to increase friendships and loyalty, but hey who am I to judge, I only have an opinion.
A long time ago I remember reading about ‘Get rich schemes’ and wonder today if Network Marketing isn’t just a new name for the old ‘Pyramid’ schemes of years gone by where the Head Guru sits at the top of the pyramid making commissions off of hardworking agents? or am I truly missing something?
Many companies and individuals are indoctrinated into this old new process and are fervently pushing forward with this aparently quick and easy method of increasing turnover. So by any means necessary, whether by ‘Pyramid of Network marketing scheme’ this concept is here to stay and is set to change the advertising practises of companies and individuals across the globe.
Having said that, there are some who remain sceptical and will need a little more convincing before jumping on the bandwagon, but will they be too late and miss the glory of being the Head Guru and end up positioned as an agent slogging away like a backstreet trader.
Its funny that those that push the network marketing route are often the ones with the most to gain i.e. more products, better products to offer their unsuspecting followers. The head network guru has a plan and I’m sorry but no one else is included in it, the only thing that is, is the colour of green and if you can show them the money, your rise to Guru status is almost guaranteed.
