MLM vs Direct Sales
Since many people have a bad stigma in their minds associated with MLMs, they often avoid them. Con-artists and entrepreneurs both have taken this into account when creating new "opportunities." Many new opportunities you will see are "not" multi-level marketing, but instead, they are "direct sales." What this means is that you will sell directly to the people and receive commission rather than having your money trickle upwards. These "direct sales" companies, however, have found ways to turn it into multi-level marketing, though. For instance, your first two sales may go to the person above you, and from then on you receive full commission with not trickling. However, these two people, you'll get their first two people, and their first, etc; thus, a pyramiding, multi-level marketing company.
