I still believe that iLearning Global is a terrific idea but bringing together many of the best known names in business but I believe that the multi-level marketing model is wrong.
I tried it and gave up although I was ill at the time and needed to watch my spending levels.
I thought it would be interesting to see how iLearning Global had progressed since its launch so I have just had a look at the Alexa statistics.
Alexa is a service which estimates the website traffic statistics for popular websites and while it doesn't capture every visitor, I have been impressed by how well its indicative numbers match up to my own statistics for my network of blogs.
Here is the 6 month graph from Alexa for ilearningglobal.tv up to October 6th 2009
As you would expect given the promotion, there has been a huge impetus to get the iLearning Global website ranking well in Alexa and it is currently considered to be the 45,647th most popular website on the Internet over the last three months.
Impressive yes but I suspect that this is a long way from where iLearning Global hoped to be and the graph shows a largely sideways trend from June onwards. I suspect that the troughs refer to holidays as I see my own traffic dip sharply from week days to weekends and for holiday times.
I hope that this may see a change in sales policy.
I have said before that the MLM stigma reflects badly on a quality product like iLearning Global and that it an affiliate model that rewarded those who made the most introductions would work better.
Certainly it would revive my own interest in promoting iLearning Global (depending on commission rates).
What do you think?
