What is Multi-Level Marketing (MLM)?
Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) is a form of direct sales. These are companies that sell their products via independent salespeople instead of more traditional methods like physical stores and online stores. In order to make money in these companies, there is a large focus on recruiting others to your “downline”. MLMs are a controversial business model because the compensation model encourages people to constantly recruit.
