Do The Gurus Still Do What They Guru?

It seems like every MLM/Network Marketing website these days is well stocked with GoogleAds selling the e-courses, books, tapes, and newsletters from industry-known marketing gurus; guys with household names, provided your household is involved with Multi-level Marketing.

Almost every one of these MLM gurus have the same bio on their websites.

He is a multi-million dollar earner and has made his way to the top in four….five…an even dozen… leading Network Marketing companies. He is a highly-recognized trainer, personal coach and mentor to thousands of top-performing home business owners. His stories, teachings and articles have been featured in several magazines including Yadda Yadda Monthly and WhatEver.

He has spoken and trained for many Fortune 500 companies such as Blah-Blah-Blah and Yackity-Shmackity.

The thing I want to know is; what company and downline are these gurus building RIGHT NOW? Are any of these MLM/Network Marketing Gurus actually building a network now; or are they just selling books and tapes?

If you know, let me know.

    Some MLM guru’s do use the Internet Marketing strategy as a primary business to help sell to a backend MLM marketing program by building relationships through what are called “Funded Proposals” Not all guru’s are in MLM anymore- look at Robert Blackman or Randy Gage or Big Al. But they support the MLM community through training products.

    Mike Dillard offers Magnetic Sponsoring as a funded proposal to help get leads for your primary MLM system while selling a cheap ebook in case people aren’t interested in your particular MLM. He doesn’t promote any sort of MLM program at this time.

    James Grandstaff offers the same kind of funded proposal while offering a commission for his membership sites.(Downline Secrets)

    Daegan Smith offers an ebook on Internet MLM success while using his ebook to help create leads for his primary program: Success University.

    There are many strategies being used online whether they are in MLM or not.

    Also David,

    Just an FIY, I found out that Randy Gage joined the MLM corporation back in April. He was “in retirement” for 5 years after his last MLM company debunked.

    I’ve looked at quite a few of these “guru” sites and I think that these guys are just taking advantage of another opportunity to make money. Nothing wrong with that, right?

    My original intention when I started network marketing was to earn a passive income that would allow me to get involved with other opportunities when they came along.

    I’ve purchased two MLM products in the past few weeks that really stood out as no-hype information, from a couple of genuine guys that don’t make all the wild claims of accomplishment, but offer a solid product…

    One was and the other was

    I really enjoy your blog Dave, but I just don’t see the problem with tapping into a market and selling an info-product on something you’re passionate about.

    On the other hand, there’s a lot of goobs out there that create an info-product just to make money… not knowing a damn thing about what they’re talking about. 🙂
