    What Are Your Favourite Brain Wash Lines ??

    What are your favourite brain wash lines or thought diversion tactics in multl-level marketing/pyramid schemes...

    Here's a few goodn's...


    "A pryramid is one of the strongest structures known to man"

    "All companies have a pyramid structure, hey even our own government has one!"

    "Don't listen to people telling you MLM doesn't work, they are just being negative and dont like to see other people doing well"

    "You're not the kind of person that should be in the hamster wheel of life. You think differently to all of those people. You are going to be rich"



    The list goes on....

    How about;

    "These MLM things never work, you can't get rich over night! I'm gonna go back & kiss some ass and get my lousy job back".

    or hows about this one;

    "I don't have a clue what to do when it comes to being involved in free enterprise, I can't think for myself at all. I guess I suffer from a "job mentality". I need someone telling me what to do all the time, I better go back & get a safe, "secure" job.

    Or finally this one;

    "Gee, I wonder what it's like having your own business in Free Enterprise. I could never do that. I'd better get to work now. My boss can't stand it if I'm even five minutes late! I'd better get goin & start fighting traffic, NOW!! I don't wanna get FIRED!!!".

    Or the classic;

    "Forget self employment & free enterprise! My job is the greatest, they'll NEVER get rid of me, Ha!, why, ...in fact, I'm irreplacable, they could't run their business without me! I hope I get that raise I've been asking for. Lately, there always seems to be too much month left at the end of the money! I gotta go! ...I'm off to work! If I'm late one more time, they're gonna write me up!"

    Perspective man, ....it's all about perspective! ;-)

    MLM is doomed to fail by design.

    I was scammed, they forced me to join at gunpoint. I don't have enough braincells to make my own decisions. I like throwing my money away. (None of these actually admitted to but the message nevertheless is the same.)

    A few of my brain-wash line favorites:

    "99.99999999999999% of people FAIL in MLM!!!"

    "EVERYONE loses money!"

    "MLM products are more expensive with less quality than supermarket products"

    "MLM vitamins will give you cancer and cause your hair to fall out because there's no proof they work" "No I don't know how to read ingredients, and of course I can't try them to see if they work because that would be too easy... and the vitamins would obviously kill me because they haven't been written about in peer-reviewed journals."
    I do not believe that MLM/Network Marketing is a bad business model. I believe it's the shady people in MLM that make it LOOK bad. As long as you work hard, run your business ethically, and work with ethical people, then MLM can help you reach your financial goals... whether it's just to make extra money on the side or a full-time income.

    Here's a good one...

    "PYRAMID SCHEME!!.... Oh no this isn't one of those shady pyramid schemes they are illegal.... This is a legitimate multi-level marketing plan....."

    And

    "MLM is the same as running your own business"

    My favorite is "doing this you will get a lot of RESIDUAL income", followed closely by "not only will you make money, you will also help spread the wealth and wellness", and last but not least "I am telling you these secrets on how to get rich because I want to share the riches with you".

    you are business for yourself not by yourself

    it is not mlm, it is direct sales

    no selling, no recruiting, no cold calls

    this is not one of those pyramid deals is it?

    mlm is doomed to fail because 3 to 10th power is 59049

    "This could be you in just a few months." - MLM rep pointing to a pic of some guy in a Mercedes

    "Your friends and family will love you for turning them on to this opportunity."

    "You don't need to be a good salesman to do this. The products sell themselves."

    "These Books/CDs will really help you build your business."

    "You're better off buying your everyday household supplies from us, anyway."

    "Wouldn't this sales presentation have sounded much better if you had just smoked a little crack beforehand?" - Ok, so I made that one up. :D
    I'm not selling anything at the moment, but thanks for viewing my signature!

    "I really hoped John Smith could be here to speak to you all.. He has earned millions with this company and he MAY be able to make it to this seminar but he may not"

    One hour later "Oh wait a minute I just heard john Smith is going to come hear and speak!!.. I'm so excited"


    John smith is in the back the whole time waiting to come out :D

    I am able to see both sides of this argument but am unable to take sides because everyone is entitled to their choice of brainwashing. However, I can conclude that the banter is quite entertaining and hilarious, if nothing else.

    I include this in my info pack when I send out info to prospects occasionally.

    Sadly, there are many MLM'rs out there selling these rediculous concepts.
