These are marketing strategies  and investment scams in which an individual is offered a distributorship or franchise to market a particular product. The real profit is earned, not by the sale of the product, but by the sale of new distributorships When the idea of franchising was first introduced to the public, the same words were also in the minds of people lacking knowledge in business.
