Circle vs. Triangle

More and more people are beginning to concern themselves with proper nutrition (and rightly so).  People are finally beginning to realize how many processed foods we eat, and that we tend to get very little actual nutrition from our diet and get mostly chemicals, fillers, or foods that do more harm than good.  Naturally, companies are beginning to see the potential to capitalize on this newfound awareness and desire to do something about our diets.  Have you noticed how many choices there are out there now claiming “low fat”, “low sodium”, “gluten free”, “all natural”, and so on?  Not that this is a bad thing.  It’s just becoming big business.

However, the most popular method lately seems to be that of network marketing.  You may have heard of products by companies like Zija, Herbalife, Nature’s Sunshine, and It Works (the list goes on).  All of them use the “network marketing” method of growing their brands.  I am not here to tell you whether or not their products work or not.  I am sure they have some good products that provide great results.  However, have you ever noticed how expensive their products are? There’s a reason for that high price tag. The issue lies in their methodology.  Peter sells to Paul, and then Paul sells to Mary, and Mary sells to Martha, and so on.  Not only is everyone using the product, they all are trying to make money on it as well.  So, when everyone needs to make money on the same product, there simply has to be a high profit margin to begin with.  Oh yeah, and the company itself needs to make money too!  That’s the triangle or pyramid method of business.
