Not shilling... looking for opinions, WHAT A NOVEL CONCEPT!!!!

Okay I have been involved or researched MANY Affiliate/MLM/Work at home opps.

I work with maybe one or two now but NOT shilling them here.

I have been with or looked at these:::
Liberty League International (self help)
Pre Paid Legal (legal protection/id theft)
Ameriplan (medical)
Herbalife
FDI
1 Step System
Rich Jerk
Pay It Forward For Profits
FDI
Global Domains International
Some thing involving gas pills that i forget the name of
Primerica (mainly financial services but I guess it qualifies?)
Success University
24 Hour Cash Flow System

I'm sure there are more I am forgetting there. From 3 way calls, to letting the site do all the work, to recorded calls, testimonials, blah blah blah I'm starting to be sick. lol

Anywho, I believe that anything can work if marketed correctly... ANYTHING. Hell the German Porn industry thrives and many people find some of that "sick". But enough of that... the reason for this whole thing is....

HERE IS A BRAND NEW PRODUCT... kidding :D :p

Seriously though, I have debated for the last year on starting some MLM company but doing it differently.

I have figured that with all the pay plans out there and products to be MLMized (yeah my own word) to death... its hard to create "new".

But what I am looking to do is at least get ideas on what parts people like about MLM, pay structures they like, ones they hate, what selling works best (meetings, 3 way call, sites that do the work, etc...).

I'm not going to type how I am disabled, have no arms, and type with my tongue and need your email address. PM me on here or if even that is too uncomfortable reply.

Tell me I am an idiot or let me know if someone has tried this before. I am honestly curious on what people think. I mean an MLM company partially created by MLM people with their input isnt such a bad idea... I guess.

I figure after roughly a few thousand dollars (probably about $8K to roughly estimate it) I shouldnt bother trying something else.

Ah well I have rambled coherently (and some incoherently) for too long now. Reply or PM me. I will not respond with a "WELL GOOD TRY THIS SITE..." and if I do may I be beaten with sacks of doorknobs and raped by large men in prison.

I am just looking for some opinions and throwing it out there. Because, lets face it... everything has been labeled a scam, everything has people giving testimony. I'm at least thinking outside the box... or trying to.

note: i posted this in the work at home and mlm forums as I was not sure as to where it would go.

Your company needs to have a product/service that people want/need outside of the opportunity.

It needs to be unique.

It needs to have mass appeal.

The marketing plan needs to be simple yet rewarding and duplicatable.

Good luck and if you come up with something, let me know.

Here's something to think about: WHY would someone start an MLM company? Do ALL the existing ones suck?? We are told you can get sickeningly rich just by being a REP for one of the good companies (fill in the blank here with ACN, Mela, Usana, Pre-Paid, whomever). So why, oh why, would anyone go to all the trouble and headaches of re-inventing the wheel? Kick that around for a while and get back to me.
