Exactly. Why should I have to buy inferior products at an inflated price?

This shit really makes me mad, but I guess its personal. My mom gets lassoed into these MLM pyramid schemes from time to time, and it hurts to watch.

RE: Using Facebook as a Selling Tool
Well, only I joined this forum because I have a great "product". Have you established a relationship with our lord and savior? Hobo

Seriously, that sales stuff would be nice if it wasn't for nicking all of one's friends. I used to work a job where our whole group went away from our regular work location to deliver a product, which required us to be at the location for usually about 5 months, every couple of years. Once, it went for 2.5 years. I threw in the towel and got another assignment after 14 months. People were organizing activities and volunteering their co-workers to help! I wouldn't have any of that, and got guilt tripped for it. I gently Laugh out load explained that, if we were back home, we wouldn't be hanging out together, and I don't see why we should, now, here, either.

Pfft. I'm so hipster I don't have friends on Facebook, nor do I use my real name. To be honest, I have no idea what you guys are talking about in the first place.

RE: Using Facebook as a Selling Tool
You can do business with friends but then they must play by business rules. If you expect me to accept a sub-standard customer experience on the basis of my friendship, then you lose both a friend and a customer.

RE: Using Facebook as a Selling Tool
I have two things

1. You are obviously not their target audience. Their target audience are people with a lot of spending money who want to have a special thing. And the special thing is very very special if it is hand made (ish) and costs four times the price.

2. Here a little video I made for you, so you won't be re-added to groups that you left.

RE: Using Facebook as a Selling Tool
Long before social media there was the home 'party'. I went through a ton of them for a time when we lived on Ft. Jackson. Mary Kay cosmetics, crystal glassware, Tupperware, lingerie...etc. All we did was pass our money around and the hostesses of these parties never really ended up with much to show for it.

Shortly after moving here it was Pampered Chef and Scentsy.

This is the new home 'party', without the party. Undecided

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.

Two of the people who are selling the cleaning stuff did the Scentsy thing too!

Some of the parties were fun, cocktails, friends, food...I feel totally used now and ripped off. Weeping


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Now they just want your money and you don't even get a mini-quiche. Undecided

Have you ever had one of those mini-quiches outside of one of those parties? I haven't. Nor would I want to.
