•Excellent MLMs vs. Scam MLMs - How to tell the difference

•Steps to Value-Based Network Marketing
Whatever your business, network marketing can be an invaluable tool to promoting and selling your product or service.

•Creative Ways to Network for Busy Entrepreneurs
With all the demands on our time made by our business, professional and personal lives, it is tempting to assign a lower priority to networking as an activity designed to meet new people.

To put it simply, network marketing is a business that is about Marketing and Distribution.
Products or services are marketed through a network of people (mini-franchises) that when joined, have the ability to distribute those same products or services to more people, via very smart technology and very sleek communication methods also linked to the internet.

•MLM or Network Marketing - What is it Really?
? MLM is considered basically a channel of distribution for goods and services that also can have a "Franchise" opportunity attached.
