MLM means multi-level marketing which is a pyramid shaped marketing strategy where the profit comes from two sources of revenue. One is the salespeople that the MLM company has recruited who directly sell the products to the customers by word of mouth marketing and personal relationships. The second source is the other salespeople that the participating salesperson has recruited to become a distributor for the company. Therefore, the MLM salesperson not only sells the products but also recruits other distributors. MLM allows people to earn money without any professional knowledge of marketing. MLM has always been mired in controversy because many MLM companies have turned out to be frauds.
