MLM Advertising in the Forum Threads

Postby sundaymorningstaple » Fri, 27 Oct 2006 3:48 pm

fseafood,

And anybody else out there who has a question re: advertising

If you have a financial interest in a product (be it commission, or outright sales of products) then you should advertise in the classifieds section of this website. I don't care if you recommend a product but when you put in things like "email or PM me for more info" this is conducting sales and therefore is advertising. Why is that so hard to understand? If you post links to websites to companies that you are recommending, no problem. If you are posting links to membership websites (e.g., you will received a commission from anyone ordering through your site) you are advertising and it will be deleted.

If you are linking to a blog where it is found that it is your blog centered on selling or promoting a certain product you are still advertising on the forum and it will be deleted.

If you whine about how others get away with it, as soon as they are confirmed advertising they will also be deleted (or the links will be). Also, spamming across several posts with the same information will result in all being deleted except for one. Spam equals Advertising, especially when an old post is dredged up to do so........

Interested to know more? Why should they email/call/PM you to get more info? Unless you plan on giving them the whole sales pep talk! What are you going to tell them offline that you couldn't tell them online?

fseafood,

You want to know what your problem is? You are trying to flog an MLM here. MLM's should be advertised in the Classified Section of this side. Please quite trying to peddle your products here.

There are also a form of advertisement ri? but there r still there, why?

when I tlk abt agel, and the product fit, ohm, thats can help ppl loose weight, I gana removed or warning? the product works and I got many testimonials to show ppl. Pls advise how I should it.


This is taken from the Agel website itself (one of hundreds or maybe thousands of suckers who joined the mlm and are now trying their best to flog it off on somebody else:

Agel International: best network marketing opportunity, mlm network marketing company, internet home based business, affiliate marketing network program, Agel mlm consultant, mlm networking, home business mlm opportunity. Copyright © 2005 Agel Distributor Team Agel Policies Utah



SPECIAL Business Opportunity EVENT "WHY AGEL"
Submitted by Agel on Thu, 2005-11-24 08:40. Singapore | agel events

(Thursday, 24 November at 7.45pm) Mr Khan is Malaysian Top MLM Leader who earned a five figures income.
He will be in Singapore exclusively for three days to share his experiences.

Come and bring your friends on the evening to discover how to become top leader in Agel Network Marketing and earn FIVE figures income. His wide ranging expertise, insight and techniques will be very valuable for both new members and experienced MLMers.


Now, either remove all references to Agel and advertise in the Classifieds or post the address of a local retail store where these items can be purchased off the shelf without going through a network marketer. Otherwise I will both delete the references AND lock your account.

capice?

One very last word, the website you visit should be of some personal website. Cos the official website did not mention any of this.
Agel International: best network marketing opportunity, mlm network marketing company, internet home based business, affiliate marketing network program, Agel mlm consultant, mlm networking, home business mlm opportunity. Copyright © 2005 Agel Distributor Team Agel Policies Utah

Nope, just not foolish enough to believe silly pep talkers talking about making 5 figure incomes in 3 months, yadda, yadda, yadda. The business model has been proven not to work except for the originators and maybe the first 2 or 3 tiers. Eventually, you run out of relatives and then have to try to sneak advertising on forums and other such crap.

OH YEAH, ALMOST FORGOT, THE following is taken directly from the only working page of the "local Singapore site" (you know - .sg ) for Agel:

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Dear Team Member,

Please be informed that Agel Enterprises LLC in the US had discontinued Agel Singapore Pte Ltd's access to the Agel IT system as of 1st April 2006. As such it has become impossible for us to enter sales and maintenance orders.

The decision and responsibility to cause this inconvenience lies solely with Agel Enterprile LLC, USA.

therefore, please direct all your enquiries pertaining your Agel business to:

Customer Service, Agel Enterprise LLC: (+1) 801-563-3366 VP of Operations, Mr kyle copeland: kcopeland @ agel.com

The Management
Agel Singapore Pte Ltd


Seems that all the links just turn up 404 error pages as well. Sounds like Agel ran afoul of Singapore Law regarding legal MLM's to me and they turned up the heat and cut Singapore off. (Why doesn't that surprise me?)

Beware of any Agel distributor's as you may lose your money and not see a product because it not available here with the exeption of some mlm'er stock they haven't been able to flog off yet.
