So, you want to know if 4Life is a pyramid scheme? Or maybe you’re a 4Life Affiliate, and you want to know how to respond to this question. Either way, you’ve come to the right place! 4Life is definitely NOT a pyramid scheme. Here’s why.

MLM vs Pyramid Scheme

The terms “multi-level marketing” (MLM) and “pyramid scheme” are often used interchangeably. While both ideas involve earning money and recruiting individuals, there are major differences between these two concepts. Let’s break some myths!

What Is a Pyramid Scheme?

A pyramid scheme is an illegal and fraudulent practice that involves recruiting members to make payments to those higher up in the “pyramid” of network marketing. There is more of an emphasis on recruiting new members, and little to no emphasis on selling a product or service. Pyramid schemes are a scam to get more recruits and money, which can ultimately leave those who joined at a financial loss.

Here are some red flags to look out for in a pyramid scheme1

  • Emphasizes recruiting new affiliates as the best way to make money
  • Plays on emotions or high-level sales tactics to pressure you to join
  • Requires affiliates to buy more products than they can reasonably sell

What Is an MLM company?

An MLM, or multi-level marketing company, is a legal business that involves selling products to customers through a network of affiliates who earn commissions. Unlike a pyramid scheme, MLMs help affiliates sell the product or service and build their customer base. Affiliates are encouraged, but not pressured, to recruit new affiliates to their business. An MLM is designed to empower individuals to succeed in their own business!
