MLM Objection: Is This A Pyramid?
The company behind the Be Nice Smartphone App is a MLM or Network Marketing Company. That means that some folks choose to use the company’s products AND recruit others to use the company’s products and recruit others to do the same. Those folks are called distributors usually and can make good money if they build large groups of people who build large groups of people that used the products. Often, when you see a diagram of a large MLM organization, it is often drawn in a pyramid shape. Thus, many folks believe that Network Marketing is indeed a Pyramid Scheme.

However, take a look at the organizational charts of most any corporation in the world. What does it look like? A pyramid. So many people shy away from Network Marketing because they are convinced it is a pyramid (bad); yet, they go to their 9 to 5 job and work in a pyramid system year in and year out (good). The picture below demonstrates the pyramid nature of most corporate structures.
MLM Objection: What they really mean when they ask “Is This A Pyramid?”
The real concern is not the shape of the organization when drawn out; rather, the concern is that MLM is merely a money game where they have little to no chance of winning. Pyramid schemes like that are illegal. Network marketing are not illegal; thus, they cannot be a pyramid scheme by definition.

MLM: The other part
Every MLM company has a product it sells. It is important to note, there is no requirement to become a distributor if you just want to be a customer. Legally, all Network Marketing companies must focus on collecting customers rather than on recruiting distributors. Having lots of customers of their products is a good thing for them. Merely having distributors buying the products so they can earn bonuses based on the number of folks they sponsor into their business and the sales volume they create is not so good.
