Getting Started:  How To Approach People
Everyone on your contact list can be placed in one of four categories.  As Peter Clothier explains, each category requires a slightly different approach for maximum effect.

Moments Of Truth:  What Are They?
Most people are really good at making snap judgements.  We all make thousands of small decisions every day.  Paul Nicholson tells us about Moments Of Truth and how our customers decide whether to buy from us.

Share Your Experience
We're always looking for experienced networkers to write feature articles.  Why not share what you've learned with the rest of us?  Tell us what worked for you - and what to avoid.  If you can make sense for 1000 words we'll be happy to put your article on the front page like this.  In return you can place a free advert at the foot of your article.  How about that for a good deal?  If you're interested check out Authors Wanted or email us at

Tell Us What You Think
This website is intended for you - the ordinary network marketer.  So tell us what you think about network marketing and the companies and schemes you have tried.  Or if you've got a bee in your bonnet - let it out!  We really welcome your comments - and will happily publish them - provided they are not too extreme!  Just email us at

Smoke Without Fire?
We've been hearing rumours of troubles afflicting a major networking company.  Our mole mentioned top people leaving, cashflow difficulties, and late payment of distributors' commissions.  So we immediately emailed their head office to ask if there's any truth in what we'd heard.  A week later we got a reply strongly denying the rumours.  Unfounded stories can do a lot of damage - even to a sound business.  So, in the absence of independent confirmation, we won't name the company concerned.  But does anyone else smell smoke?

Tell Us Your Gossip
Have you heard any good rumours?  Has anyone you know done something interesting?  Tell us the juicy details so we can spread it around.
