Business Opportunities Review Guidelines

This Biz Opps review board has been set up as a way for you to carefully and knowledgeably research others’ experiences in order to help you make your future business venture decisions. That said, this review board posts require moderator approval and each post will be evaluated against the following guidelines. It is our intention to maintain a constructive, yet honest, review board for the benefit of our members. Reviews are to address issues of your OWN personal experiences. Any reviews addressing hearsay will not be posted. Experience must be first-hand.

Prerequisite to Post: To maintain the integrity of the Review Forum a member must have a minimum of 50 posts and have been a member for 2 months (60 days).

Please Note: To help better organize the reviews, only one thread will be allotted per business opportunity. Please peruse the threads to find the business you desire to review. If the business has not previously been reviewed, a member may begin a new thread.

Time Allotment: Please allow 24 to 72 hours for your review to post. All posts are reviewed by the moderator before being submitted as a thread/to the thread.

#1. This board will allow for both positive and negative reviews.
Negative reviews must not be written ‘off the cuff’ with spiteful intent, but with the intention of alerting other members to negative experiences with a particular multi-level marketing company that were not resolved. All responses need be constructive and tactful in nature on all accounts.

#2. No Consultant Rebuttals of negative reviews. In no case will ‘word’ of another’s experience with a multi-level marketing company be a part of a review.

#3. Resolving Discrepancies. MDC will not take responsibility or mediate discrepancies between a multi level marketing company or affiliate program and their prior or current consultants. Both parties may post to the thread, but MDC will not host an ongoing dialogue between the two members. We ask that if a discrepancy has been resolved, that the original poster of the negative review please return to place an update regarding the resolution for the benefit of our members.

#4. Responsibility. As a member of MDC, you are to be responsible for your words in your personal review. Before submitting any negative reviews of a business, customer service or product, please contact the business in question to resolve the issue. Hearsay will not be allowed as each review must be specific to your personal experience with the MLM or product. Broad sweeping statements are not tactful or constructive and may be defamatory - members must speak only from their personal interaction with the business opportunity and/or product. Experience must be first-hand.

#5. No Recruiting. This review board is not a place to persuade members to join you in your business venture for the sake of recruiting. Posts of this nature will be removed from the boards. We encourage members to share their experiences in an effort to help other women find the path that is right for them, and to do so without attempting to gain a profit of benefit for themselves.

As always we will be reviewing our policies after a period of time to best serve the MDC community. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions you may direct them to the board administrator [email protected] .

I have retired from administration work, so if you have a question about anything MDC-related, please contact Cynthia Mosher. Thanks!
