Questions About Mlm Scams

Chris asks…

What is an MLM Scam?

My friend’s mom put money toward the ACL telecomunications company. & there were so maney people that were at the meeting. It is so sad how so many people get talked into this thing.
the telecommuniation company ACN.

answers:

Multi-Level Marketing. It’s a pyramid — not a good idea to invest into at all.

Michael asks…

Is ProActiveHealthNet a MLM scam?

Yeah, this one girl that I’m acquainted with is trying to recruit my mom, younger sister, girlfriend, etc. to work under her. Now this person has no education past highschool but claims that she makes over 60 thousand a year.

answers:

She can claim anything. Let her substantiate her claims with evidence. Like bank statements and tax filings.

Lisa asks…

Ignite MLM – Is Ignite a scam or a legitimate business opportunity?

I’m reviewing a bunch of business opportunities and would like to know what others sincerely think about this network marketing company.

answers:

It doesn’t appear to be a blatant scam. There are two things I like about them. They pay residual income and have a product everyone needs.

I do have several concerns about them though. I’ve only researched the info for GA.

They have a lot of complaints with the BBB and about 1/4 of them are unresolved
They are right in the middle of the GA Public Services Commission Scorecard (measures complaints against service providers) for the month of September.
Extremely limited market. They are only available in TX and GA and are not available in all areas of those states. That creates potential opportunity if they can expand, but also has the potential to cause problems. I personally don’t use natural gas and only know a few people who do.
They have no competetive advantage. Natural gas is natural gas and if I were to use it I would buy from the company that gave me the best price with the least amount of hassle. Based on BBB and GA PSC data they don’t appear to be that company. The only advantage that they seem to have is that they offer a biz opp.
Must recruit to get promoted in the comp plan. There could be some potential legal issues here.
Compensation is poor. If I sell someone a service that they may pay $100+ a month for, I expect to receive more that 25cents a month. Even by recruiting and get promoted in the comp plan you only make a couple of dollars a month.
It seems like most of the money in the comp plan is in the form of leadership bonuses. In order to receive those bonuses you must recruit. It doesn’t appear that they pay simply for the act of recruiting, but requiring you to recruit to make any real money and the fact that the bonuses paid out probably cannot be covered by their profit on the sales of natural gas so it must come from the fees paid to join the company leaves them walking a very fine line.
Energy, like telecom services, is one of those industries that I rely on heavily. If I feel I am paying a fair or comparable rate and am not being hassled by the provider I will not change providers not matter what kind of deal they offer me.

Some of my Friends offer me a network marketing plan.should i change my job?

Some of my Friends offer me a network marketing plan.should i change my job?

answers:

Am,

I have 20 years experience in network marketing, also known as MLM. It is the same thing. The netwrok marketing plan is an absolute excellent concept! However, the trick is to make sure that you find the right company. I have tried several before finding the right plan and many of them have unreachable monthly goals and/or require that you personally buy a large monthly amount in order to qualify for your commissions. You need to be very careful in looking for the right plan.

I have an article that will help you learn what to look for, what to avoid and what questions to ask to determine if it is the right opportunity for you and that the company is legit. As far as quitting your job, you have to be sure that you can afford to financially quit until you have established your network marketing business. Many people work full time or at least part time when they first start to give them the financial stability they need until they are esablished in their business. This is something that only you can decide.

If you would like, I will be glad to email you a copy of the article. It is too long to send through answers messaging so if you would like a copy, email me at bonnieram1962@yahoo.com and I will email it to you.

I wish you all the best in whatever you choose and look forward to helping you.

Questions About Mlm Scams

Sharon asks…

What is the MLM saving scheme –> SCAM?

A friend said he will provide some financial advices to me. It turnt out a “MLM saving scheme”. He tried to presuade me the scheme can provide 100% return of your saving. He refused to tell me the company name & business nature but he said it is like buying shares and getting a dividends back. The company grow so rapidly and the share price can go up even 100 times. He said he got his money back already.

As a business graduate, it just sounds like a SCAM to me. As he didn’t provide me with further info, I cannot check out the detail of this company and pass the info to the police. Could anyone provide me with a clue of what he was talking about?

answers:

Obvious scam. Warning signs everywhere. Lose this so-called friend.

It’s probably just a type of pyramid scheme.

A Tasty MLM treat?

I’m NOT selling anything. I’ve found a neat eye-opening video for ALL network marketers.
I’d be willing to bet that you’ve known this all along but had no clue how it affects your business.
Tell me what do you think of this video?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1X1J8nViYEQ

answers:

MLM is not a scam. Unfortunately many people think that they are because unscrupulous people have used the business model and soiled its reputation (AMWAY, Wealth Pools, Winner’s Circle,…). If you look at the business model- Avon, Pampered Chef, Tupperware, Home Interiors and many other similar companies with excellent reputations are MLM. They all get perks for bringing reps into the company.

My best advice as far as MLM, do your homework. Check with the BBB and with government agencies to be sure the company is legit. The company also needs to have an honest to goodness product that people want and need. It helps if you believe in the product and company- so you will be able to have a good customer base and recruit easier.

Questions About Network Marketing Tips

Carol asks…

How do i get a contract with a company for my staffing business?

I am starting a staffing/consulting business in the finance industry. I myself am a finance major with about 3 years of experience. I have a lot of connections in terms of people that want jobs. But i have absolutely no connections and no idea on how to get a contract with a company so that I can place people for them on a contract basis. Any tips on how I can get a contract with a company to provide them with employees that they might need? Right now I’m thinking of just cold calling some managers and seeing how that goes… Not sure if that is a good approach though..

answers:

It would be very difficult to explain and analysis all the things here. We have same approach. So it will be better to contact to email and skype chat.

To start any business you must have one website for your services so that people can get complete information at one place. This will make more trust, attract new customers and save your time to explain for your products.

There are some software companies which provides free guidance for website development, marketing, business networking. Also work on partnership basis in some cases. You can ask with WWW.WEBINFOSYS.IN

I have a question about Amway, the MLM company!?

Hi
How much should i pay to enter in this business?
How much commission does Amway pay me by introducing new people?
What kind of products does the company have?
Thanks

answers:

In the U.S., Registration plus Welcome Kit is around $150.

You do not get paid commision for introducing new people. You get paid on the movement of products. If you recruit a bunch of people, and no one buys or sells any product, then you make zero dollars.

Regarding products, their “power” brands are:
*Artistry skin care and cosmetics (a 30+ old compnay, in the top five of prestige brands in the world based on sales)
*Nutrilite supplements (a 76 year old company, organically grown plant-based supplements, and the top supplement company in the world, based on sales)
*Legacy of Clean cleaning products (green and enviromentally friendly for over 50 years)

Joseph asks…

Joining MLM company good or bad?

I have recently come across one MLM company and i am impressed by their products and compensation plan. But i want to know that whether is it good to join MLM company or not and what are its pros and cons. If any of u are already doing this kind of business then it would be really helpful if u give me proper guidance. I really want to join MLM.

answers:

CON’s:

1) MLM’s Open door policy – An MLM will accept anyone. The result is that undesirable people join the profession and you share the reputation that they may reflect.

What are some of the behaviors of these undesirables? Some:

Over hype the products and/or opportunity
Are deceptive
Are misleading
Make illegal income claims
Make illegal medical claims
Are annoying
Are unprofessional
Are unreasonable
Are embarrassing
May misdirect or pressure you to do something that’s not in your best interest (ex: participate in a particular business practice, strategy or event). This is a big challenge when you’re new and don’t know whats in your best interest.

2) Some MLM company owners & executives you encounter may possess undesirable values like the ones mentioned above.

3) MLM as an industry is not regulated by the government. Only a state or the FTC can prove in court if a company that claims to be MLM is really a Pyramid Scheme attempting to appear to be legitimate (Pyramid Schemes are illegal in the USA). The result is that good companies share the reputation of bad companies that are allowed to continue doing business and consumers are confused & deceived.

4) The Critics – MLM is a largely unknown profession. For the few that do know of it some misunderstand it. Some friends, family members, prolific writers and media outlets spread misinformation about it sometimes due to false rumors & untruths and other times because of associating the actions of a few to the entire profession. This is a challenge for an up and coming Network Marketer to withstand this critical talk. It can be discouraging if you don’t know for a certainty whats true and whats not.

5) Attrition rate – MLM is very easy to join and hence its very easy to quit. Some people don’t take it seriously and quit. For others life just gets in the way and they don’t devote the time to the business they had hope to. Others try their best and never achieve the success they hoped for an quit. This is the nature of any business that is easy to get in. However many people quit the business because their expectations were not met. You can remedy this by not giving people unrealistic expectations and by being selective about who you choose to sponsor. Be truthful, be realistic and only sponsor serious people and your attrition rate will not be as bad as your colleagues who lie, give unrealistic expectations and sponsor anyone breathing.

PRO’s:

1) MLM’s Open door policy – An MLM will accept anyone. This is also a good thing because if you can get good at building an MLM business there will never be a shortage of options of companies you can choose from to contract with to create an income. You will never be out of work.

2) You’ll be able to choose:

Where you work
Who you work with
When you work
The way in which you conduct business
The manner in which you run your business (minus the restrictions in writing placed on you by the company you contract with)
You’ll have access to people with a vested interest in helping you succeed
You’ll have an opportunity to develop meaningful relationships
You’ll have an opportunity to help people achieve success
You can offer people a product/service that you believe in
You’ll have an opportunity to create an income producing asset that can continue to pay you for years to come
You’ll be able to take advantage of various tax benefits available to home business owners

3) You have an opportunity to build a recession proof business. Heres how:

In times of economic hardship consumers spend less money. This is why many traditional companies go out of business during hard times. When you run an MLM distributorship you will experience the same during hard times. Customers will be buying less. However because you are a Network Marketer you have another avenue that drives product volume. The other avenue is the amount of people who are actually selling the product. In times of economic hardship more people are looking for additional income so while product sales per distributor may drop you may inevitably see a rise in the number of actual distributorships selling the product or service. This creates a dynamic of a business that can thrive even during hard economic times.

4) Access to life changing business education: An MLM organization with an outstanding education plan will teach you values such as:

The Attitudes of successful people
Overcoming personal fears, doubts, and lack of confidence
Money management skills
Investing skills
Goal setting
People skills
And more

Education that can serve you in any of your future business endeavors whether they are MLM related or not.

These are the Pros and Cons I was able to come up with off the top of my head. So is joining an MLM company good or bad? I hope this information will be useful in helping you decide the answer to that question.

Questions

Questions About Network Marketing Magazine

Sharon asks…

How do I increase the number of subscribers of a small charity magazine?

As a volunteer my task is to increase the number of subscribers from 500 to 2000. I am given a £5,000 budget, I thought I will concentrate on direct mail and telesales, but it is not working. Can you please kindly help me in helping this charity to help the needy? Any advice, tips are welcome, you could also email me directly any advice, suggestions, help etc. Many thanks

answers:

Well, with budget of 5,000 pounds, you should start initially with a press release. I use PRWeb, as they are able to offer several press solutions, but I’m not sure if they handle press in the U.K. Contact them to ask them if they do.(However, there are some free ones too!)

Then, there are tons of methods for you to advertise your magazine for free:

1) Create a squidoo lens! – There are tons of readers each and every day that surf through lenses to read, and charity lenses get a lot of traffic. You can tailor your lens to be highly focused upon your charity’s subject matter… As well as include a link to the charity’s website (Hint: make the URL point to page in website which users go to in order to sign up for the magazine). Plus, you can have multiple lenses about several different charity topics, and then cross-promote you lenses within your other lenses. This allows readers to find your lenses a lot easier, and increases the chances of a chained reading experience from users.

2) Social Media – Create a Facebook account, a MySpace account, a Yuwie Account, and a hi5 account. Then, start joining groups within the social networks that are business focused, as well as charity and non-profit focused. You can post bulletins and announcements either on your profile, or within the groups that you joined, instructing your friends to read a blog that you wrote on your profile… So, then you just need to write the blog or blurb on your profile which promotes your magazine. You have to spend 30 minutes to 1 hour each day inviting people to be your friend within the social networks, but they then become your future advertising market.

3) Free Classifieds – There are tons of websites that will allow you to post advertisements without spending money. Now, there are also advertising and marketing firms that you can hire to do a little marketing for you. However, do a lot of research on the firms to ensure that they are professional, and produce results.

4) Write Articles – Article directories allow an author to write specific subject-matter articles, and to get them top ranking within search engines. Ezine Articles is my article directory of choice, as it seems to get the highest ranking within Google, as well as a few other major search engines. Plus, they have an extremely diligent filtering program which ensures that garbage material is left out, so that the included articles are of extremely high quality.

5) Search for other opportunities to promote your charity through businesses and social networks that will promote your charity at no cost to you… This is inclusive of donation programs! Charity awareness applications are taking off within social networks, and usually have a donation feature which allows users to either make a direct donation to your charity, or to earn a donation for them whenever they take advantage of advertisements or online surveys!

Mandy asks…

What are some effective ways to market yourself as an illustrator and cartoonist?

…without using the traditional method of postcards…and are there any good websites for freelance income?

answers:

Sending Mailers is the best way. It doesn’t have to be post cards be creative when send out mailers it will get you noticed even if it is in a colourful folder. That’s how you get noticed.

There are directory’s to advertise your work like the directory of illustration, but they cost quite a bit of money to put in a page and there are hundreds of illustrators in those books so chances aren’t great that they’ll get you work.

Websites like Portfolios.com to advertise your work however I don’t believe a lot of A.D.’s or Editors will be spending time perusing websites for illustrators this way but it doesn’t hurt to try.

Call for entries. Applied Arts Magazine, Spectrum and CAPIC all have call for entry contest there are plenty of others as well. For a fee you enter into these contests if you win or even get honourable mention chances are you can get some work from it.

Word of mouth and network is invaluable, also you can look for an Artist Rep who will get you the work.

All of these methods are difficult and it takes time, patience and a some luck to get the work.

Carol asks…

any ideas on how to drum up some real estate business?

Just curious if anyone out there has any great ideas on how to approach people who are considering selling or buying property. I know different marketing methods but in the current market we are in, I need some creative marketing ideas! I’m an agent in the San Francisco Bay Area but don’t think location matters so much as great ideas. I already do magazine mailings and am not really interested in “farming” via the old mailbox method.

Pass on those ideas please! Much appreciated.

answers:

Let me tell you what we do to keep our pipeline full…

We host a series of home selling seminars in our market area. We mix that up with some first time home buyer seminars and bring our networking efforts into play.

You can prospect for potential sellers this way who may be reluctant to sell because they dont understand the market or because they dont understand the mechanics. On the flip side, you can prospect for potential buyers this way also.

We formed a business development cadre and try to host at least 1 seminar a month.

Depending on if its a seller seminar or a buyer seminr we bring in subject matter experts from various local offices, like title, escrow, conventional and government loan lenders, niche lenders, appraisers and mi companies. Instead of lecturing or power point presentations, we set up specific subject matter tables and let the prospects choose what they want to learn.

You have a great opportunity to match sellers with buyers and borrowers with lenders. It becomes a win win situation for you and your network

i’d like to hear what ideas people come up with, if you dont mind sharing

Questions About Mlm

Linda asks…

Is Primerica Financial Services a MLM?

I’m wondering, I have a friend who swears its not, but it seems to be. Either way, I’m thinking that joining would be a mistake. Any advice would be appreciated.

answers:

It is sort of a MLM because you need to recruit people to build your business and everyone else has the same opportunity. But the compensation system is different in Primerica. In MLMs, when you recruit and this recruit sells something, the recruit splits his/her commissions with you. In Primerica, when you recruit someone and this person helps a family improve their finances, this recruit gets paid full commissions base on his/her sales level and the company pays you a bonus, which is the difference between your sales level and your recruit sales level. For example, lets your commission is at a 50% level and your new recruit is at the 35% level. You will take in a 15% bonus every time that recruit helps a family. Of course, you have to know that most people won’t do work if you don’t go to work because people you recruit will copy what you do. If you skip training, they will stop coming to training forever until you start going to training on a consistent basis and you continue to rally them to the next meeting. At Primerica, they let you become an independent business leader. At the beginning, all you are is a follower working to become a business leader.

One thing I can tell you for sure is that Primerica is not a pyramid. In a pyramid, there is one guy at the top and everyone else is stuck at the bottom. For example, in the corporate world, there is 1 CEO, maybe 3 Vice Presidents, 10 Regional Managers, 30 Divisional Managers, and then 100s of employees beneath these managers. Most people who graduate from college starts out as an entry-level employee. Some of them will be promoted to become a manager in few years. Then they are basically stuck at that level for a very long time. What’s the chance of you and me becoming a vice president in the company? Its very slim. The opportunity to move up in the company becomes smaller and smaller because once you move up, someone has already taken your previous position.

At Primerica, you choose where you want to be in the company. Your first goal is to become a District Leader in the company. After you become that, your next goal is to become a Regional Vice President, which is the highest compensated level in the company. The process to become a RVP is simple because all you need to do is duplicate yourself, but its not going to be easy. It requires work and patience and determination to win.

Whatever you decide is totally up to you. You should stick around and try it out at least since you already put in your $199. If this business doesn’t work out for you, at least you would leave with a greater knowledge of life insurance, mortgages, how to pay off your debt faster, financial planning, and investments.

Donald asks…

what is MLM?how does MLM work?

answers:

It is kind of hard to explain what MLM is. It is a business model that has over the years taken a bad rap and a lot of people simply lump all MLM companies in the “pool” of being illegal pyramid schemes. That is not the case. Many MLM companies are legitimate. The bad rap comes from novices who advertise the company products and services.

The MLM industry is here to stay and it is responsible for moving over $100 billion dollars annually worth of goods and services worldwide. I have an eBook which I am in the midst of rewriting that will explain it all to you. I’ll set up a quick website from which you can download a copy if you want. Just email me via my yahoo profile and I’ll give you the website name (give me 24 hours to get the site set up).

In the meantime if you are really interested in MLM there is another eBook I recommend. Its” called the “7 Great Lies of Network Marketing”. It’s a free 35 page eBook that basically exposes the myths and bad practices that cause the majority of MLMERS to fail in their business. You can download a free copy at:

No degree you get will guarantee a job
but its always a good thing to learn business
especially if your thinking of going into business yourself or working for somebody else.

I’m in cosmetology myself and I’m getting a AA degree in business
but honestly sometimes I feel as its really not worth it.

You can always educated your self on business by going to the library and finding the same information online. The only pro to this is networking with other people and bragging rights to say I got this piece of paper.

How can I get my name out there as a photographer?

I would like to become a pro photographer, but do not know how to get started (though not sure which field).
..and is there a place were I can sell my photos on-line?

answers:

Http://www.photo4me.com/ is a good place to sell prints. As for getting your name out there its pretty much the same as any business. Write yourself a business plan and include a marketing budget. Some good potenally free ways to get your name out is social networking sites such as facebook, build a website and spend the time and effort to get links into the site to improve your Google rankings. The first point to start is always to make sure you have all the skills you need to be a professional photographer. If your unsure of what field i would guess you dont have massive experience so to begin with maybe try and do a course or find a photographer you can work with. This will lay the foundations you need.

Questions About Mlm Scams

Ken asks…

What is Pr!merica and what makes it an MLM scam?

My friend’s annoying me by asking if i could join her “team” in Primerica’s “be your own boss” business.

She even said if I wanted to have sex with her, she’ll allow it as long as I join.

But I heard you have to pay $100 to join and be there every day without pay for training and then I have to find recruits. I don’t like the idea of annoying my friends and family to recruit them into a cycle of fraud and scams.

Need some answers plz!

answers:

I can’t believe your friend is prostituting herself so you can join her network.

Not so much as a scam. But multi level marketing is difficult and have a high turnaround rate. Most people bail because the training is so poor and the uplines are more interested in recruiting than nurturing those that report to them. Stay away. Only the people with high level of people skills and ambitions have a chance.

Is there a new scam about, of an MLM nature, having to do with long term care insurance?
I was at a public library yesterday in the course of some travels and some old guy walked in and started chatting up the librarians about long term care insurance. He seemed awfully pushy, not like the Humana people at Wal Mart. What is this?

Thanks!

answers:

Common Sense is right on target. MLM is always a scam; some are legal and some illegal but scams either way.

Questions About Network Marketing Definition

John asks…

Why is the Miss America pageant being shown on TLC?

After all, TLC is the abbreviation for The Learning Channel, and what educational value could the Miss America pageant possibly have? Oh, well! Perhaps TLC is going the same route as MTV, which used to be all about music, but now shows nothing but crappy “reality” shows.
No, I DO NOT want to see it!:) So-called beauty pageants are just a bunch of antiquated garbage.

answers:

It is a question of who paid for the rights to air the program. Apparently, The Learning Channel won the bid or negotiated a better deal than other cable or broadcast channels who might have bid to cover this pageant. It’s just about business.

Your perception that the Miss America pageant should have been carried by one of the major broadcast channels (ABC, CBS, NBC) may come from a view from yesteryear that the Miss America pageant was something that almost belonged to the American people since the person who won supposedly represented the best that America could produce. With the proliferation of so many cable channels, there has been competition for programming so you have new buyers snatching up programs that used to be the domain of others.

My general sense about the entire Miss America organization is that it has had a history of controversy in terms of how it was managed and what it stood for. What is the definition of what the “best female” in America should be? How important is looks over intellect? Does talent in a performing art really matter? Should contestants wear 1 piece or 2 piece bathing suits?

In my opinion, Miss America started losing favor when they began incorporating all these supposedly politically correct ideas of what a “real woman” should be, de-emphasizing beauty and lot letting contestants wear a 2 piece bathing suit if they wanted to. The whole bathing suit competition was thought to be borderline sexist in a world of more professional women who wanted to be appreciated for their minds versus their bodies.

Come on!

This was and still should be a “beauty pageant” so physical beauty should never have had to take a back seat to everything else. They went overboard for a period of years (in my opinion) and I stopped having any faith that the “Miss America” pageant was a valid competition or measuring what it was supposed to, at least in terms of representing the best America could produce.

But this January 2009 Miss America Pageant I thought was a great come-back for the organization. First of all, somebody did something smart (TLC) by creating shows in advance of the Pageant that showcased the contestants doing various things like getting lessons on how to walk down a runway. I believe they had sporting games too, somewhat like they would do in the Survivor series, pitting the red team against the blue team, all in the name of one of Miss America’s hallmark values, Physicall Fitness” (code word for do they look good in a bathing suit).

I also noticed in the national “Parade” magazine (a Sunday insert in many local newspapers) an advertisement with a picture of all the contestants along with a follow-along ballot and a website where folks could send in predictions, I believe. All of this was very savvy marketing to cross promote and to do so well in advance of the actual event. And in my opinion, I think this year’s Miss America pageant was better promoted and better-run than most of the past Miss America pageants I have seen in recent years. I now think it is back on par with the Miss USA Pageant which Donald Trump has done a lot to modernize and cross promote to a higher level of awareness and appreciation by viewers.

So HAT’S OFF to the folks at The Learning Channel for bringing this popular American tradition back or at least more to the center of what Americans seem to want to watch versus all the politically correct garbage the pageant had been mired in for years past.

Donald Trump owns the Miss USA pageant so one should not automaticaly perceive any of these pageants bearing the name of America or the USA as being the automatic property of one of the major broadcast networks. Just because it says “American Broadcastingg Company/ABC” or “National Broadcasting Company/NBC” doesn’t mean they automatically stand for the American people or it’s citizens.

In fact I think it is interesting how the “mainstream media” has been criticized as becoming out of touch with a big chunk of America now, but you can attribute this to the EVOLUTION of broadcasting and the proliferation of cable, satellite, and other media distribution channels like internet. Media has been fractionalized and there is now disintermediation such that folks tune in directly to the channel that stands for exactly what they want to see versus getting everything through a few major middlemen with content amalgamated, filtered and sweetened, the way the big networks have done for years when this was only a business dominated by 3 networks.

Thank you for asking this question. It appears you may not care for beauty pageants and you are entitled to your opinion. Many people DO appreciate beauty pageants, though, as evidenced by the large audience that they draw. And I leave it to individual Responders here to make up their own mind about pageants since everyone has their own clicker or channel knob at home.

Lisa asks…

what is the definition of virtual marketing ?

virtual marketing, a term related to marketing at internet r something else plz let me know ?

answers:

The buzzwords viral marketing and viral advertising refer to marketing techniques that use pre-existing social networks to produce increases in brand awareness or to achieve other marketing objectives (such as product sales) through self-replicating viral processes, analogous to the spread of pathological and computer viruses. It can be word-of-mouth delivered or enhanced by the network effects of the Internet.[1] Viral promotions may take the form of video clips, interactive Flash games, advergames, ebooks, brandable software, images, or even text messages. The basic form of viral marketing is not infinitely sustainable.

The goal of marketers interested in creating successful viral marketing programs is to identify individuals with high Social Networking Potential (SNP) and create Viral Messages that appeal to this segment of the population and have a high probability of being taken by another competitor.

The term “viral marketing” has also been used pejoratively to refer to stealth marketing campaigns—the unscrupulous use of astroturfing on-line combined with undermarket advertising in shopping centers to create the impression of spontaneous word of mouth enthusiasm.
