Recruiting Mary Kay Recruiting with Text Messages June 18, 2019 June 17, 2019 This image comes courtesy of the Anti-MLM subreddit. I can totally imagine the desperate directors who want to finish their Cadillacs by June 30 sending these out. How would you respond?

So I did. 1 enorth June 18, 2019 at 8:37 am 4 years ago Looks like Mary Kay consultants have started following the It Works distributor playbook. Work from home from your phone. Just copy scripted text-messages and send them to as many people as possible. (Before you’re blocked or threatened.) Neverpink June 18, 2019 at 8:59 am 4 years ago Can’t use proper grammar or spell the word “business” properly. Where’s my eyeroll emoji? Charles June 18, 2019 at 11:51 am 4 years ago This is downright hilarious. This wasn’t just bad grammar, it was just plain sloppy with zero effort put in to typing the solicitation. Also, what is a “buiness” ? I wouldn’t trust this person with caring for my goldfish. Char June 18, 2019 at 3:36 pm 4 years ago Notice how she’s not trying to sell product. She’s recruiting! Anyone still think this isn’t MLM?! Kinzie June 18, 2019 at 5:26 pm 4 years ago “Woops” is right! KayNotMary June 18, 2019 at 6:29 pm 4 years ago This is where those one of those brilliant memes from https://www.mlmbossbabe.com would come in handy. ww1971 June 18, 2019 at 9:24 pm 4 years ago that site is brilliant! love the meme about moving up in your own business based on the efforts of others people business. Kinzie June 19, 2019 at 4:16 pm 4 years ago My favorite: “Give us back our craft fairs #banthehuns”. One of the sports booster groups at our school was putting together a craft fair to raise money. When they announced the event on FB, all of the MLMs started clamoring for table space. :/ I skipped it. Juliet June 18, 2019 at 8:15 pm 4 years ago “responded” (wait for them to responded) Claudia Banks June 19, 2019 at 4:35 am 4 years ago The sad reality is simple: the money is in the recruiting, not the selling. Which is why they push joining their girl gangs instead of the product. My personal trainer sells Advocare (I ignore that fact and she doesn’t recommend it for me) and I asked her if the move to one downline hampered her. She said no, she doesn’t have a massive downline, but she knows people who do, who jumped ship super fast to other companies with tiered compensation plans, and she was shocked because she thought they believed in the product, and they didn’t. Julie W. June 20, 2019 at 3:45 pm 4 years ago I have a couple friends selling Beauty Counter. They think it’s a good thing when they say “The best thing we sell is the opportunity.” I would love to see mlmbossbabe come up with a meme that says “If the best thing you sell is the opportunity, then your products are worthless and you are a pyramid scheme.” Mountaineer95 June 21, 2019 at 3:49 am 4 years ago *sigh* What every director reading this should do, stat, is figure out how much of their commissions they’ve received are based on INVENTORY purchases from their downlines and HOW MUCH of those commission payments these directors have already spent. Miss Director, are you holding those commissions aside until you are SURE that the product has been sold (or given away or used, or otherwise passes the one year mark)? Wait, you’re not holding these commissions? You’ve already spent that commission money? The MK Corp stance is that retail sales are the goal! And you should be supporting that! And the ONLY way to be supportive of that is if you don’t spend your commission checks until it’s verified that your downline wholesale orders (on which you were paid these commissions) have come to fruition as true retail sales. You’ll get no sympathy from me for chargebacks, or worse, a huge pile of debt in which you bury yourself. Char June 21, 2019 at 7:03 am 4 years ago “until it’s verified that your downline wholesale orders (on which you were paid these commissions) have come to fruition as true retail sales.” Of course, when you are encouraged to recruit those true retail customers as fellow consultants in order to advance, selling retail to them is extremely hard to do. And so it goes, the inherent flaw with MLM. Comments are closed.
