Ding-Dong!! Multi-level Marketing Plans Calling!!


Multi-level marketing plans ("MLMs"), also known as "network" or "matrix" marketing plans, can be an effective way for the "little guy" or the "entrepreneur" to achieve financial success in the cosmetics or apparel industry.[1] By promoting individual autonomy and embracing the concept that the independent sales person is the main driver of success, it's no surprise that MLMs are attracting considerable talent. In fact, the Direct Selling Association, a trade group that includes the leading multi-level marketing firms, reports that the industry employed more than 15 million U.S. salespeople in 2007, and had an estimated $30 billion in U.S. direct sales. Further, the clothing, cosmetics, and personal care segment represented almost a third of all domestic sales, the highest of any major product group.
