I’m looking for feedback from someone who may have experience with this business opportunity.

I have been presented an opportunity with Market America. I’m skeptical but my mom has been with them and so far has been doing well with them.
I wanted to know if anyone on this forum has experience with Market America and what your opinion about the opportunity is. My husband said it’s not a Fastlane forum business. I’m already running my own web design business and they offer web design solutions/white label services.

There is a lot to it that I’m not qualified to explain it so I’m hoping to find someone who already understands the opportunity and hopefully has some experience with them.

My major concerns are it requires a minimum referral and a monthly fee to participate in the opportunity.

hat has your experience been and is this something that makes sense to get involved with? They have an A+ rating with the BB and there have been millionaires made with their business model.

MLMs such as Market America are not popular around here. They go against the entire CENTS Framework.
Here are some threads on MLMs: Is MLM so bad?
GOLD! - MLM Debate

99.9% of people who do MLM's LOSE MONEY! Horrible business model for all involved. If you are in a pyramid scheme you are the customer not the producer.

One of the only parts of Reddit I enjoy is the antimlm reddit. Here is their post on the deceptive tactics of Market America: https://www.reddit.com/r/antiMLM/comments/8kdfma View: https://www.reddit.com/r/antiMLM/comments/8kdfma/the_deceptive_tactics_of_market_america/

Yeah, stay away from MLM. I signed up for one many years ago. Waste of time. I didn't get very far into it. I've been pitched a number of times after that. Each time creates more of an 'ick ... get away from me' feeling inside me.

You'll end up being able to provide a lot more value to people, and make more money in the process, by doing your own thing.

Thank you. Yeah since reading more about MA and BBB being full of bs I’m sticking with just my Web Design business.
I got a new client tonight, I think that’s a sign that I’m on the right path and not to get distracted.
MLMs aren’t for me. Now I gotta find a way to get my mom out of it... thanks for your help.

Andy black says to provide value to others, and one of his things he also likes to do is what he calls diesel and coffee... He's on the forum here and gives out enough free advice to make any "marketing guru" faint at the thought that he's just giving it away
