    Fake "enthusiasm" as a Marketing Technique

    Manufactured enthusiasm is a marketing technique to create a group think mentality. It is used to cultivate urgency and an infective desire to belong. It is a central and essential element in many MLMs to drive sales and maintain membership. Sales seminars and conventions are used to foster this.

    My questions to pro MLM rs are:

    Do you think they are productive?

    Do they satisfy long term sales goals? (in other words are they a stop-gap measure or do they help you fill and maintain your downline ?)

    How are they perceived? Positively or negatively?

    No, no and negatively.

    If you cant find some real enthusiasm, which can be seen to be different from the fake stuff), find another company, products or another business.

    New to scam.com? This is what you can expect from MLM critics in support of their claims ....

    All that crap may very well work in the short term, but for MLM/DS to make it over the long haul, it's gotta be based on real passion, empathy & commitment.

    I think that's an answer to life, not just MLM/DS.

    What does that say about the people here over, such as yourself, who have done nothing but lose at their multiple serial MLMs? Over the long haul.

    So in your opinion do you think the company that sponsor's a convention that is heavy with the Rah-Rah, lets all make a boat load of cash in this "badass company" doomed to failure ? Does it perpetuate the myth that MLMs are cult-like ?

    To me.............not cult-like...........but perhaps faddish in nature.

    Everyone wants the new(est) flavor, the coolest toy, the flashiest gizmo.

    In MLM the quickest cash in hand, the easiest paycheck made off the coolest looking product and put together by cool looking and acting people.

    Its all flash and glam and stuff and nonsense........

    Once the 'bad as*ness of it dies down, people will move on......OR it will implode like LLI did.

    And based on results, you are lacking in these areas.

    I get passionate about sh!t all the time unrelated to MLM..........and lose the passion just as quickly.

    Maintaining one's passion, drive, ambition over an extended period requires a big enough WHY to stay the course....this goes for anything.


    How is MLM any different, and why should someone be faulted for doing what we all do all the time in other areas?

    I have never laughed so hard in my life.

    So now just because EN has a convention and people get excited about it it's doomed for failure???

    You people are really grasping here, I mean REALLY grasping.

    You HATE so much, and want sooo badly for EN to fail it is just frigging killing you inside.

    And you go on about how you feel for those who loose out "At The Bottom", but your HATE for the company over shadows any result. You really don;t care about those who loose, all you care about is that EN implodes and crashes and takes any and everyone involved with it.

    You people really are sick. You could care a less what happens to anyone, as long as that damn evil Empower Network implodes so you can jump up and down and bang your chests like the monkeys you are.

    HOW Dare Empower Network make people successful. How dare them help people make good money, who in the hell do they think they are. EVIL people helping others get off of SSI.
    How dare them help others become debt free. EVIL BASTARDS!!!

    Implode already damnit, and make sure you take those evil bastards with you.

    The difference is his constant defense that MLM is such a great opportunity. One that he failed to succeed at. Now it appears he only has a passion for trolling forums trying to convince people that MLM is a great thing.

    It would be different if he had "walked away" from his MLM business with barrels of cash still rolling in.

    Who's guessing? You admitted you're not actively building an MLM empire. That means you failed in your attempts.

    Nope, not at all. Some people like rah rah.

    I don't.

    Some people do though.

    Sometimes...it can, jbh

    But then, aren't we a society that almost thrives on cults of all kinds...Sports...religion...Guns, politics, hategroups, anti-MLMrs etc...
