There is an interesting discussion on one of the well-known HYIP forums concerning MLM and their decreasing popularity. The author of the thread seems to be concerned with the fact that MLM industry becoming less popular. Actually according to most posts MLM programs haven’t become less popular, they are stronger than ever. Some believe in today's economy people are looking for other avenues to generate income and as a result MLM certainly is not becoming less popular. Actually marketing gurus are considered to be the only ones making serious money online these days.
MLM still seems to be the most lucrative online business so long. Yet to make profit in this field you need to have leads, and if your leads are happy with the money you made them the first time then they are happy to follow you again. Leads are the gold mine in MLM. All the participants of this discussion agree that only the ones at the top of the best MLMs are making serious money with this system.
According to most responses MLM is certainly not becoming less popular as too many bad stories related to MLM and pyramid scam makes it popular. Yet there a few counter-opinions according to which multilevel marketing industry had its boom 10 years ago and now looks a bit of old school. Thus some people believe MLM programs are outdated now.
To conclude I wonder who said MLM becoming less popular? Actually I believe this is not true, it’s just this subject is less topical and rarely discussed. Yet I think everything is working as efficiently as it used to.
