Man Cave MLM

January 29, 2010

There’s a new MLM targeted specifically at men. Man Cave sells barbecue equipment via Tupperware-style sales parties. The article describes how the new salesperson gets his group of assembled friends to buy grilling tools and food items.

What I like about this company compared with MonaVie is that there is a much heavier focus on… get this… selling products. I know this might seem like a novel idea for the typical MonaVie or System-influenced Amway distributor, but it’s really not. Buy low, sell high, keep the profits. Recruit other people to do the same (or just keep on selling). Compare this with how many Systems teach in MonaVie/Amway: Buy from yourself and teach others to do the same.

    Read the article on Man Cave, sounds great, I like to drink beer with my friends at back yard barbecue’s the only problem is my cooking really sucks so I’ll stick with selling used and rare books on amazon.

    I did four meetings last week. Took me 5 hours. I ordered my own products (what that take 10 minutes??)
    I read 30 minutes a day. I listened to audios (while I’m already doing other things like personal use (washing dishes or washing clothes) so that doesn’t count as “hourly wage” time any more than listening to the radio in the car or waking down the street. So, including reading looks like I’m up to about 8 hours?

    You don’t know facts from your own fantasy, opinion & theories.

    Might want to re-read the FTC ruling. It affirms that amway is a legitimate business model. (And part of the REQUIREMENTS to qualify for bonus money is… RETAIL CLIENTS!!)..

    Every other direct selling business must conform to these LEGAL operating requirements:

    #1. No recruitment bonus or front end loading.
    #2. The company must buy back unused inventory of anybody who quits
    #3. Retail customers. (there is no specific number REQUIRED but amway rule is 50 PV)
    #4. No minimum purchase REQUIREMENT
    (You can sign up for Amway just on the paperwork. )
    #5 no price fixing. IBOs can charge whatever they want to retail customers.

    I SUGGEST you get your own facts straight you bullshizzer.

    The FTC ruling is like a speed limit sign. The law is there but unless there is active enforcement, the sign is just a sign. That’s what the old FTC ruling is. It’s like a speed limit sign.
