MLM or better known as multi-level-marketing made its way to Malaysia a few years back. Initially, this particular field was dominated by the Malays and Chinese and our Indian makkals slowly ventured into it after hearing some bullshit stories on how some people successfully bought a 7 million bungalow in just 5 months and how some premium-super-gold-platinum achiever went to the extend of buying a Boeing 747 flight and traveling the whole world in it just by promoting a perfume or a healthy drink which they are selling for RM999.99. Seriously, why buy this kind of products when you can buy the same for a mere RM9.99 at local pharmacies and stores?
The answer – marketing strategy. Yes, let me put it straight. Indians can be fools and at the same time, can be easily fooled too. Just show them a pamphlet of a purported ‘Tok Guru’ offering some 4D number predictions and immediately, out of 10 Indians that you’ve approached, at least 5 of them would be eager to know more about the Tok Guru and out of those 5, 3 of them would be standing-by to bank-in some deposit to the Tok Guru’s account in order for him to buy some ‘prayer materials’ to start predicting those 4D numbers. Seriously, if the Tok Guru himself can really predict 4D numbers and so, then why the hell he is sitting under a tree for the rest of his life and offering his services to you for a few thousand bucks? Frankly speaking, he would have long struck the 4D jackpot, winning like RM1 million every freaking week and instead of sitting under a tree, he would be sitting at a Casino in USA by now. This, my dear readers, would be one of the easiest method to cheat Indians up until today.
Alright, talking about MLM, you see, our machans and machis are very attracted to MLM nowadays. They believe that it is a shortcut for them to be a millionaire in just a few months by selling some lame products. While they do see the benefits of it, they fail to realise the consequences they are about to face if things goes wrong terribly. Following would be some of the common things that are associated with MLM:
1) Healthy drinks
2) Education portals
4) Cosmetic sets
5) Nutritional supplements
6) Cleaning supplies
I am not against MLM here. It is just not my cup of tea. Some of you may have earned a decent income out of it whilst some of you may even be doing it for a long period of time. However, based on my own personal experience, there are way too much of complains and grouses in contrast to some ‘successful stories’ that I’ve heard. What I am going to pen down next would be some examples on how our machans and machis would act their way to convince you to lean towards them, the fucked up way of-course.
