Hi
I am a student, not got alot of time to build my business at the moment so looking for a few hours per week stacking shelves or whatever. Whenever you open a newspaper nowadays for jobs you get all these adverts saying "Earn 500 per week for 2 hours work" or " last year i was in debt, this year i have 1m". I don't want examples, but has anyone ever had any luck with these, or are they all scams?

Hi James

They're all scams. Remember the old adage: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Wink

Hi James,

I have to agree with Paul. And, I'm sure they want an upfront fee...most of them do. When it comes to making money, anyone who says they can sell you something to make overnight riches is not interested in your welfare; they are interested in your money.

In this case, I would keep stacking shelves. Your much better off doing that then getting involved with one of these scams.

Jim

Paul and Jim are right. Avoid these schemes like the plague.

Another simple rule is - why'd they want to spend all that money on an advert and tell you about their wonderful scheme if they made a million. It's going to be an awful lot of book sales to make another million especially with other people in competition.

Well, you can actually make money doing simple work, but you have to do stuff like drinking pesticides.

I agree that this advert sounds like a come on; it's really unfortunate that many disreputable activities are giving the perfectly legitimate business practise of network marketing a bad name.

I operate my own MLM business from home; it is not a get rich quick scheme nor anything to do with illegal pyramid schemes. What it is is a highly successful business model that many well known companies now use to get their products to the customer.

Indeed Sir Alan Sugar (he of the Apprentice) has just launched his own network marketing company; Richard Branson already has one and Anita Roddick (Bodyshop) has now launched one too.

Setting preconceptions apart, does anyone seriously believe that these successful businesspeople would become involved in network marketing if it were illegal?

Spinning back to the original - "500 / week for 2 hours work" sounds off for a new business, so I agree that it does sound "too good to be true".

On the other toss of the coin - if someone suggested that you could become involved with a company, initially part time around your existing job, that in 4-6 years could position you to be financially free, but you would have to work hard and develop your skills with help - would you suggest that that was 'too good to be true'.

Sometimes you have to look at the old adage "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is" with a pinch of open minded salt and think "What if it is true?"

All of them that I have heard people try have been scams. The only person who did make money was the company organising it.

The general rule I would use is that if it sounds too good to be true then it probasbly is.

Sure, it's possible to make a lot of money very quickly and completely legally. If you're bright enough and motivated enough you'll find a way. But when you do, would you create competition for yourself by taking out a 2,000 advert and charging wannabes @ $19.99 to be let into your secret?

It's a myth that you need to spend a lot of time to start/run a successful business. That's so not the case. Sure, some businesses demand it - like Shocked MLM - but there are others that are a walk in the park. I know someone who, quite by accident, ended up sourcing bits and pieces for a big shipping company called Sea Trucks in Nigeria. He's based in the UK and finds them everything from specialised bolts to resins. He works 3-4 hours a day and makes more than the Prime Minister. Some believe there's no such thing as an accident. He recognised an opportunity and jumped at it. Find your own.

Whether you go into a ready made opportunity or start from scratch you have to be ready to work. You also need to accept that you are not going to be rich by next week.

Spot an opening in the market. Take up a business opportunity. Sign up for a franchise. Then go ahead and put in the effort and if you have chosen the right thing for you then you will win through.

Make sure you choose wisely. After all taking on a slimming/weight watching franchise if you are a 24 stone mound of blubber will not bring you many clients. Any business is about selling - mainly selling yourself - so do make sure that you are offering something that you believe in.

One test when looking at these kinds of advert is to see whether you make money by selling products/services or the opportunity itself. If you are expected to buy huge amounts of the product yourself on a monthly basis. Or, if you are only expected to push the opportunity then it is a scam. However, there are many Network Marketing or MLM companies out there that are completely ethical and this payment plan works well. They shouldn't all be lumped together.

Do your homework. Research what is on offer. Choose what is right for you. Oh, and if you are not sure then stick to shelf stacking.

Regards, Unity

It might be true.
But it might not be as easy as they claim.
I have experienced it.

My suggestion about a business is do something practical which gives you a experience, with that you will gain knowledge and it supports you to choose the right opportunity whether it may a business at home, or any another.

My advice would be if the company allows you to start very small and build up then they trust that you will enjoy working with them and are allowing you to build up your business if they ask you to jump in at the deep end and start big then i would say that they are just after your money.
