    Just my opinion:

    Because MLM is designed to pay commissions on many levels, then the only things that work with it are ones that have a very high markup.

    ... so in other words, as far as sales go, items sold with MLM are the toughest sells.

    Remember the old Amway? The company got rich while thousands of sales people beat on doors to no avail. Sure, a choice very very few got rich... or even made a living off it, but very few.

    Think of it this way: Can you name one item that is well known around the country or the world that is sold by MLM?

    Yes, you can see that I'm a bit biased. My "rule of thumb" is that if I find something I want that is brought to my attention by a MLM'er, then I'll shop around and probably be able to find it for a fraction of what the MLM'er was trying to sell it to me for.
