Hi ALL. First let me say that I am a rather unconventional type. I FINALLY 'cleaned house' and only have ONE site where I actually have a growing organization w/o me having to contact the 100's of DOPES I have in my organization. At first, I followed ALL the suggestions offered by the founder. NONE of the suggestions worked. I have a SLOW but GROWING organization, have been paid once already and due for payment again probably after the holiday season is over. You see, in the begining I would welcome new people, make myself available and so forth. But after ONE IDIOT created a cancerous growth in my ENTIRE network(admin would NOT allow me to dump the fool) I changed policies. My innocent welcome messages and other things(all abiding by the site's rules or TOS) ruselted in BOGUS SPAM complaints(admin even admitted the charges against me were bogus). My members blocked THEIR email addys and/or other ways to contact them. So NOW I NEVER BOTHER to CONTACT ANYONE ANYMORE!! Guess what??? During the time I was 'trying' to be a 'good' member, I was LOSING people. Since I have STOPPED ALL CONTACT, my network has grown and when they spend I EARN, and of course I EARN on my own shopping too. So NOW I have a site where I EARN on a regular basis and I NEVER have to deal with ANY IDIOTS!! Now this is MY kind of biz op. I am not going to plug what the site is or anything like that. I just wanted to share my story. Hopefully somebody will find this useful. I have GIVEN UP on all those 'marketing tips' and just let the thing run itself. So please don't try to make any 'marketing suggestions as I am NOT interested. If it ain't broken don't fix it.
