Some of my friends are asking me if they should do multi-level marketing. I tell them ‘No, you shouldn’t’. Let me tell you why.
Is it affordable?
First question came up for you is if it’s affordable. Now you know daily average income of a Myanmar citizen, which is only about 0.5 dollar per day. But you would say those live in Yangon city get a lot. But it may be just about 2 dollars per day. They cannot afford to buy flagship smartphone. However they take medicine for their health. As you know, tablets from Decogen, Biogesic are cheap. You can get those medicines under 0.5 dollars. Myanmar people use cheap cosmetic products which comes from Thailand and China.
So let’s talk about products from Unicity and other paramedical products companies from US, which use MLM technique. A table which would kill cancer, as they said, cost over 10 dollar. It’s the cheapest price I can say. Some even cost more than 50 Dollar for a daily consumption. If you wanna consume for a month, you have to spend more than 500 USD sometimes. It isn’t affordable. It’s extremely expensive for local people. If the product you are going to market is expensive, you should consider it as an impossible thing to do.
Does it have quality?
Some paramedical products, which came from US, Thailand and several countries are not approved by FDA. Myanmar local people are not rich in knowledge. They will use everything if their friends encourage them to use. Quality of the product too matters when to market it. If the quality is under standard and not approved by FDA and local authority, it’s illegal.
Is it relevant with the market?
Some product are not relevant with the market. If people don’t like it, it’s not relevant. You need to make a survey or market research if they would use your products or not. Without making any research and just if you try to sell your products, it’s a bad habit.
Everybody needs the money and I don’t refuse about it. But those who do multi-level marketing are needing money than us. Their ego and their hunger is very outstanding when they talk about their marketing products. What about you? Multi-level marketing kill people who don’t have the money. It’s pyramid flow chart kill people at the bottom. Those who stay on the top of the MLM organisation chart keep smiling and grab the money easily when those from bottom level are surviving. For survival, they are not hesitate to lie you and sell you bad products.
Be careful everyone. Many multi-level marketers are killing the market.
