A SIMON KITVAN STORY
…And this is it,
My honest opinion.
So, I spend a lot of my time online researching and reading various stories so that am always informed in a lot of online related things including Network Marketing coz that is what most Nairobi youths and maybe nationwide at large are battling and this is due to the psychological messages that you always send to new members to win their hearts so that they may join your scheme, which ideally in many occasions, you win because most of youths are jobless and it has reached a point in our lives that, whenever we hear something related to and might be generating us money, we become so happy and eager to engage into it. Then, you manage sustain staying there because the “firm” itself promises you good deeds indeed that you won’t leave it any soon unless you think deeper.
So, originally, network marketing was created to be a business model in which a distributor network is needed to build a business and usually such businesses are also “Multi-Level Marketing” (MLM) in nature, which I have been telling you, in that, payouts occur at more than one level, the more people you recruit, the more payout you get.
And this kind of business is more familiar with people looking for part time job or just flexible business which has actually been the “most model of advert you use to recruit others”, I mean it makes it look more promising and faster convincing.
To make it look more legit, they incorporate somewhat kind of an actual selling of products which doesn’t work at all coz people don’t buy them. So, mostly they ask participants to recruit other sales representatives such that when I join the organization, I know that I am going to do actual sales but in between there, you get assimilated into that MLM culture and you just get used to it. And then, recruiting becomes their main agenda than selling products because they don’t make any profit to sustain all the members and pay them, so the more members you recruit and they pay for the subscription services available and upgrades, the more money the firm makes, you also become a boss you are as well upgraded with people under you. And that is why it’s called a pyramid scheme but they always refuse that just because they want to maintain that good image and earn people’s trust and achieve more credibility.
In Kenya, this is not left behind, they have been existing and just to name but a few, I have seen Alliance in Motion (AIM global), GIF among others, and if you follow up, you will always find that their office is always just in one place, all of them, the head office is in Nairobi, Commerce House, 4th floor. I even think that it’s one firm that keeps renaming it self after getting busted and not paying its people.
Just the other day, one of their members sent me their web address which I deeply interacted with and found out that their head office is also located in the same place. The website is really lucrative and I salute the designer, it’s worth it. I read through it, found some articles, which are good, I tried to look through the products page to see the products they are selling, I found nothing there. Again, they also said that they offer web hosting services but it’s not even described there, nothing not even a Link!!!!! What a secret firm?
Then, I came about their telegram channel Link, I clicked on it and boom, it took me to the telegram channel, thought I would find something there, No. The only things I saw were posters of how who has done what, instructions from their bosses, advising people to upgrade, and some other motivational quotes and fliers and books, you remember up there I said they use a lot of psychology to channel their messages? Right now you know why, to encourage you not to quit and leave them. There also, no products being sold at all. I wonder what they sell then. Maybe somebody send me photos I see.
I may not deny that am not a victim, I have once been a victim and I was almost joining, I was almost getting inside that recruitment office back in 2015 but something just changed my mind and left ( I realized some mischief). From there, I went and did an extensive research about this schemes and that which was trying to recruit me as well and I just found out that they are going nowhere. They are just wasting our time and money, I or we, better do something else than recruiting people, to pay Ksh. 200 to join. I really pity them. So even you as a member, am not telling you to quit but, just digest this piece and think of what you want to do with your life. Is it the right way to follow, or is it the right thing to do? Are you heading somewhere with it? And if yes, where exactly do you see yourself at? The answer lies with you. Follow your heart.
Anyway, I may write and write but people who send me this texts trying to recruit me usually do not know that I have more knowledge of what they are even trying to recruit me into than them. I have had more experience than the New people who are just joining and think they know it all but they are only aggressive.
Let me cut the long story short and I hope you learn something from my story.
Thank you for reading and I wish you the best in your endeavors
