I had a very very very displeasurable experience

(is that a word? well anyway)I learned very quickly you cannot cross post and post to ebay copy written or some MLM’s based on contract agreements. Anyway, I learned and after 1 week retracted etc…not that it helped it had no affect anyway on getting any business..and to be honest, (totally honest) I have never sold to anyone or sponsor anyone, so it was truely a learning curve for me.

However the biggest part of the learning experience was not that I couldn’t sell anything or get anyone interested, I figured on the 1% of 1% rule, what I didn’t COUNT on, was other people in the organization reporting me, of course now I totally understand. I have to acknowledge that even in the small world of home sales businesses, the others do (and rightfully so) want to eliminate the loss leader or seller who (unknowingly in my respect) broke advertising rules..
oh well, learning 101 for me.

Does anyone have any stories of others who maybe reported you or got angry with you for possibly (their perception) taking business away, and eliminating the competition..I picture AVON ladies letting the air out of each others tires, or FUller Brush men tripping the salesmen as the leave their homes..

A loss leader is a product that is sold to entice people to purchase other products are the normal price

For example, Porter Roundhouse Steaks at US$2.50 per pound, with the expectation that the sales volume for related items (beer, potatoes, corn, etc) will offset the loss caused by selling the steak at below cost.

You can’t call eBay sales a loss leader, because there are no products sales from which the lost revenue can be offset.

There are only three instances when an experienced manager is willing to use a product as a loss-leader:
* The item is overstocked, and inventory needs to be reduced as fast as possible;
* The item is being discontinued, and they want to reduce inventory as fast as possible;
* There is an assurance that the sales of other products will offset the lost revenue that the loss-leader generates;
