What is network marketing as a stream of income?

Network marketing is a type of business strategy where profit is theoretically derived from two or more revenue streams: from direct sales to customers, from commission based on the sales of recruited team members and commission from recruiting team members.

It can also be defined as a marketing strategy in which the sales force is compensated not only for sales they generate, but also for the sales of the other salespeople that they recruit.

It is very popular with people looking for part-time, flexible businesses. Some of the best-known companies all over the world are involved in network marketing, including Avon, Trevo and a host of others, fall under the network marketing umbrella.

Network marketing is also called Multi-level marketing (MLM), pyramid selling (not scheme), and referral marketing. Network marketing is quite different from both Ponzi schemes and pyramid schemes.


A pyramid scheme is a business model that recruits members via a promise of payments or services for enrolling others into the scheme, rather than supplying investments or sale of products or services.


Both Ponzi schemes and pyramid schemes  are quite seductive because they may be able to deliver a high rate of return to a few early investors for a short period of time. Yet, both pyramid and Ponzi schemes are illegal because they inevitably must fall apart with time. No program can recruit new members forever without sales of products or services. Usually it operates under the guise of obtaining from “Peter” to give “Paul”.

There are better and smarter ways of networking today. All you need to do is just have an open mind and appreciate the fact that you need another stream of income that is legitimate, will not take much of your time and at the same time produce a decent income over time.

Network marketing as a stream of income is a smart way to go.
