MLM or Network Marketing is a method of marketing products and services through independent representatives who refer customers to the Multi-Level Company they represent.
Email is a very cheap method of getting messages out in front of people and has been taken up by many representatives of those MLM companies. This means that they spend very little on marketing which leaves them to enjoy a larger share of the commission than they might otherwise.
MLM is perhaps one of the biggest sources of Unsolicited Commercial Email (UCE or spam). GMS Anti-Spam can help to protect your users from being over-run with spam allowing many different levels of Content Filtering.
MLM is an acronym for Multi-Level Marketing, sometimes called Network Marketing.
As the name suggests, multiple levels of people are marketing a product to consumers. A sales representative (also referred to as a distributor, member, affiliate, partner or associate) gets customers and recruits and trains another sales rep to get customers.
Multiple levels of marketing are actually what all companies desire (both MLM and non MLM companies). If you’ve ever heard a traditional company announce, “Refer a friend and you’ll receive a discount on your next purchase,” this is multi-level marketing. Health clubs, real estate, telecommunications, and countless other industries use this technique. Professionals (doctors, dentists, accountants) live or die based on their customers telling others about them.All these businesses are simply trying to get current customers to advertise and market their product or service to potential customers.
