This post is going to give you elements which can let you know that an MLM company is legit and therefore worth signing up to. It is important to base your judgement on a several factor and not on one or just a couple of them when considering these companies.

For example, we couldn’t find enough information on SunHope and had to make do with what we could find about them.

Besides, we could not get a better look at their business model neither could we get their text to translate into English. This made it impossible for us to say what we really think about that part of the company.

But for the fact that they enjoy an outstanding reputation as a multi-level marketing business and also because they offer outstanding and well-respected products, we could not give them a thumbs down.

We had to leave the rating to our readers to determine if this company is a viable MLM investment for them.

For this post, we will take a look at the makeup of 50 long-running companies.

With so many MLM programs to choose from, it can get very confusing when trying to pick one to invest in. And as money is hard to come by, especially in these times of the COVID-19 pandemic with its Lockdown, people must do their research before spending money on any venture.

How to N° 1: Year of creation / Number of years of company and other details

When writing these reviews of MLM companies we take a good look at the company and especially at how old it is.

This is because the number of years in business to a large extent show the solidity of the company.

Generally, the longer a company has been in business, the better it is. For, how could it have survived so long if people weren’t appreciating them, their products and/or services?

Note that we said generally since there can be exceptions to the rule.

For example, Advocare was founded in 1993 yet we did not recommend it in this review.

This means that to choose a good MLM company to invest in, all the 10 factors above must be taken into consideration.

Okay, let’s say, at least 9, with the exception of legal issues or complaints. Because most of the companies here don’t have them.

Examples   

N.B.: The companies are listed in the order of their year of creation, beginning with the oldest.

SOUTHWESTERN ADVANTAGE

It all began in 1855 when the Reverend J.R. Groves founded a privately traded company that he named Southwestern Company.

Now they are called Southwest Advantage and are based out of Nashville, Tennessee.

We found this company a bit different from most multi-level marketing companies. For it becomes more of a direct selling company with opportunities when you reach team leader status. Then you earn under an MLM platform.

Southwestern Advantage is not only a very old company but also a very old school one in how they run their business. They are a direct marketing company that offers educational books, website subscriptions, and software door-to-door through independent contractors.

They recruits from universities and colleges and give them extensive training to sell their products.

AVON

Avon is also another very old company that was founded way back in 1886. But it did not bear that name until 1932. As you see they will be celebrating their 134 years this year!

One notable thing about Avon is that many people swear by them and personally have had some experience using many of the company’s products. We have to admit they are some of the finest in the industry. So we are excited to take a look at this MLM company.

Avon have a proven track record of award-winning products and a compensation program second to none in the industry.

This company is awesome in the fight against domestic violence as well as in the fight to cure breast cancer.

Wouldn’t you at this point want to know how it all began?

A man called David started out by selling books door to door and soon changed his products to perfumes. Then he created a company called “California Perfume Company” which through several mergers and partner mergers became Avon.

Through direct marketing practices, they have grown to the fifth-largest beauty company and number two on the list of direct sales companies in the world.

Avon boast over 6.4 million representatives.

You’ll love them if you’re the type who can’t stomach any form of cruelty to animals. For a notable fact about them is that the company is leading the fight against testing on animals. In this regard Avon has taken a pledge way back in 1989 and leads the charge against this practice all over the world.

However there is a downside to the company.

It is that sales have been declining for the last five years. They have even dropped to as much as 18% in one year alone.

Moreover, the company has also been dropping out of major markets around the world. These include France, Australia, and New Zealand. But this has nothing to do with the company but rather the markets which are not following the company’s policies and procedures in their business practices.

There is hopefully a bright side to this though.

The company Natura which we will also see here bought Avon Products Inc. this year thus creating the 4th biggest beauty company in the world.

It is expected that Natura will help reorganize and turn around the fall in sales for the company.

They also have celebrity beauty ambassadors including Lauren Conrad, Lucy Hale, and Ashley Greene.

The company also runs the Avon Foundation which is a philanthropy that is dedicated to women’s causes.

This foundation offers scholarships to its representatives and their families and is an awesome perk for people who sell for them.

Avon is also huge in supporting the cure for breast cancer. They do this with their Avon walk for breast cancer charity walks and the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade. They donate all of the proceeds to cancer research and cures.

TUPPERWARE

Sometime back in 1943 a certain Earl Tupper invented his first of many storage containers made out of rubber. But the actual working started 5 years later.

In order to seal these containers, you had to burp them. This became a huge selling point for Mr. Tupper’s products.

Soon Brownie Wise, a worker at the company, came up with the idea of direct selling to his customers through what would later on become known as Tupperware parties.

With that the marketing program was born and rules were set up to follow when setting up these parties. Brownie then became the vice president of the company in charge of the direct sales division.

She decided women would be in charge of this business and they would follow a strict dress code when they set up and organize these parties.

They came up with the genial idea of family, friends, and neighbors coming together and purchasing products through these parties. Soon Tupperware Parties INC was formed.

It must be noted that this home party feeling was more like a party than a sales meeting. Thus the company had huge success with this type of marketing and soon became a worldwide force in the storage container niche.

CUTCO CUTLERY

This private company was founded in 1949 by Alcoa and case Cutlery and was named after its founder Alcoa.

It is currently based in Olean, New York.

Alcoa sold the company and the new owners changed the name to Cutco.

However they are currently owned by Ka-Bar, Vector Marketing, and Schilling Forge.

Cutco markets cutting knives through one of its parent companies called Vector Marketing.

JEWELS BY PARK LANE

This company was created in 1955.

A long-standing company that has been in business for a very long time, it is a spinoff of their parent company Park Lane Jewelry International, out of Schaumberg, Illinois.

Over the years the founders have turned this company into the leading direct sales and marketing company dealing in jewelry.

Park Lane sell handcrafted jewelry and watches at an affordable price for every occasion. They back it by an unconditional guarantee.

This company is well respected and its reputation for fine jewelry is spotless. Besides they are considered as the leader in their chosen niche.

SHAKLEE

The Shaklee company was founded in 1956.

It is based out of Pleasanton, California.

They have stood through the changes that have taken place in the retail markets.

Around the mid-1980s the company relocated to the financial district in San Francisco. It remained actively a publicly-traded company on the New York Stock Exchange.

The company underwent many changes in the following years. This includes a purchase of the Bear Creek Corporation in 1986 from RJR Nabisco for $123 million.

I guess you may have heard of the Harry and David fruit of the month club made famous by Bear Creek.

In 1989 Shaklee Corporation made a deal to sell 78 percent of their Shaklee Japan division to Yamanouchi Pharmaceutical Company. This was for a whopping $350 million as well as royalty licensing rights.

In March of 1989, another company tried a takeover of the company. This obliged Shaklee to resort to selling the remaining company holdings to Yamanouchi Pharmaceutical Company. This was done through a stock partnership that thwarted the takeover bid.

From there the company became a privately traded entity and moved to its current location in Pleasanton, California from its former San Francisco base.

From 1988 to 2000 UCI professional cycling benefitted from Shaklee as a title sponsor. And in their last year of sponsorship, the team was a top-ranked tier 11 team.

Another interesting thing to note about Shaklee is their association with NASA during their shuttle program. Shaklee supplied all of the rehydration products used by the shuttle crews.

GNLD

Most people know GNLD by the NeoLife division. This is the division we will be concentrating on.

NeoLife has been around since 1958.

This division of GNLD deals in nutritional supplements.

According to their website, “the first whole food nutritional supplement based on delivering Tre-en-en Grain Concentrates, whole grain ‘Lipids, and Sterols’ to support optimal cellular nutrition.”

They are accredited by the Better Business Bureau since 1969 and have an A+ rating to date.

NeoLife sells products through what they call promoters using a standard MLM program.

Reported as a pyramid scheme by some, we took a look at how the company works and also compared it to the Federal Trade Commission’s definition of a multi-level marketing company. And it passes the test.

AMWAY BUSINESS AND AMWAY BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY

Amway was formed in 1959.

Eager to manufacture their very own product and sell, they had a scientist from Chicago design an all-purpose cleaner. They bought the rights to this cleaner and named it liquid organic cleaner or LOC for short.

Amway then contracted with a company called Atco manufacturing that made their product. Eventually they bought 50% stock in Atco and renaming the company Amway Manufacturing Corporation.

Now then started expanding into other countries. And they were well on their way to becoming one of the most successful MLM companies in the world, actually becoming number one on this list!

They soon had established lines of products such as household cleaners, cosmetics, artistry, Nutrilite, epring, and XS under many different divisions.

Sponsorships

Amway has become sponsors of many different commercial entities. The DeVos family actually owns the Orlando Magic who play their games where else but in the Amway Arena!

They also sponsor Los Angeles Sol of Women’s Professional Soccer, San Jose Earthquakes Major League Soccer, and the Detroit Red Wings.

The company is also very active in politics and supports the Republican Party and has even had a distributor back in 1994, Sue Myrick

One of the company’s main mottos is, “Christian Morality and free enterprise!” They are very Christian based and use biblical quotes in many of their training sessions.

They are very set in their ways and it would be wise to share their values and ideals to really be able to excel in the company. But a person could become very successful regardless as they are set up for success!

MARY KAY

Mary Kay Ash formed this company in 1963.

It is based out of Addison Texas and is still owned and run by the Ash family.

It is privately owned and is based on its sales force of distributors called beauty consultants.

The company manufactures their own products out of Dallas Texas. They have another manufacturing plant in China.

One very interesting fact about Mary Ash is her pink Cadillac. This was a huge promotional vehicle in the early days of the company.

In 1968 Mary purchased a brand new Cadillac from a Dallas Dealer and had it pained the same shade of pink as one of her products.

She then rewarded her top five sellers in 1970 with their very one Cadillacs.

To date, GM claims they have produced more than 100.000 custom Cadillacs for the company. You’d agree that is a few cars!

Better, the company has expanded its car rewards program to multiple sales level goals for its distributors. The car choices now cover BMWs, Malibus and even Mustangs.

That is a pretty good incentive program to have!

ORIFLAME COSMETICS

The company was founded in 1967.

Imagine our surprised when we found how many current and former distributors had great things to say from their experiences selling Oriflame products!

We must confess it is not very often we find a company that is really as good as they say they are. And this one was a real surprise in that they really are one of the good guys!

They have over 3 million distributors.

With over 5 decades of business experience, they are well established and well respected. They are also the largest cosmetics distributor in the world.

Research and development are done on-site with Oriflame’s own state of the art research and development center. This assures quality control of their products which are assured with a 100 percent money-back guarantee.

A very old and established company, they deal in cosmetics.

Yanbal claim to have over half a million distributors.

The company has been ranked in the top 100 MLM companies for many years and have a huge presence in the niche.

The founder, Juan Fernando Belmont Anderson, has made it to the Forbes billionaires list back in 2013 and 2014.

But he has since dropped off that list due to his company being an MLM company.

This seems to make a difference in how a company is valued.

The company has a commitment to empowering women in the business world with a view to making them independent.

This has been carried on by the founder’s daughter Janine Belmont who is now the CEO of the company,

NATURA

ARBONNE

This company was founded in 1980 in Orem Utah.

Doing business around the world, they claim their products are all-natural and harmless to the body.

Their inception however is an interesting story.

In effect, a man called Peter worked in the cosmetics industry from 1965 to 1975. But he became disillusioned with the current products claiming that they damaged the skin and were also unhealthy.

Peter moved to Switzerland and teamed up with a certain Pierre Bottiglieri.

There are two different stories about how his line of products was created.

The first goes that the two of them created cosmetics that were made with no animals or petroleum and were safe for both the body and the environment.

The second story says that they bought the formula from Pierre’s former employer, Laboratoires Cosmetiques Arval and rebranded it as their own.

We could not determine which of the two stories was the real one but at least we found the end product is a safe line of cosmetics and that works for us.

Arbonne at one point had 1.8 million independent consultants working for them. But at the time of this writing the current numbers were unavailable.

The company website, Plexus, is easy to use and full of all kinds of information about the company and its products.

ZURVITA

The founders put the company together in 2008. Its mission was “Changing lives for the better and to offer opportunities where anyone can succeed.”

They wanted to make a “Significant impact on all walks of life”.

Taken from their website, which is very well laid out and a very pleasant visit, we read:

They set out to create a company based on three Founding Principles:

  1. Build a company that honors and glorifies God.
  2. Develop a company with humble leadership.
  3. Create an environment where people can win at every level.

The current CEO claims, “The best choice a person can do is to come and join our team as we are still writing our story and yours too!”

DOTERRA ESSENTIAL OILS

This company was founded in 2008.

This direct sales multi-level marketing company has been turning heads all over the internet.

Here is a synthetic view of the company:

Full company name: Doterra Essential oils Multi-level marketing Company

Location: based out of Pleasent Grove, Utah Distribute worldwide.

This company was got its start when the above named company left another multi-level marketing company called Young Living and began their own program.

The Latin name Doterra means “Gift of the earth.”

This startup created many problems from the beginning.

Their former company confronted them with a lawsuit claiming many things that were later all dismissed. The suit itself was also dismissed, thus clearing the way to Doterra becoming worldwide.

Today it boasts 3 million wellness advocates.

This is a huge organization that even claims ownership of the Doterra Healing Hands Foundation that cooperates worldwide with all kinds of humanitarian projects.

ARIIX

Ariix started doing business in 2011.

This company is put together the right way. Their website is state of the art and professional looking.

They have a bill of rights posted on their website. You must read it here to appreciate it.

The following is a quote from their “The Ariix Founders Club page”:

THE ARIIX Founders Club is the most prestigious and high-level ranking that a Representative can achieve in the entire sector of network marketing. The invitation to join THE ARIIX Founders Club is the pinnacle of what can be achieved in the direct selling industry—the perfect balance of being a Representative with the privileges of a founder.

YOUNIQUE

Younique was founded in 2012.

This company is one of the companies we call the new age marketing programs that is similar to Avon. It puts more focus on social media marketing. This is a refreshing take on the MLM format.

We think this seems to be the future of many of the MLM companies. This is promising because there are virtually unlimited numbers of customers to go around. Thus the chance of sales is increased tenfold.

The company is experiencing quick growth due to their emphasis on digital marketing.

No doubt Younique is quickly becoming a force in the cosmetics niche. And it will soon be reaching the levels with the likes of Avon.

Coty INC acquired 60 percent of the company in a purchase agreement in 2017 for 600 million dollars.

Then they saw double-digit increases in growth the first year.

Unfortunately with that growth steadily declining in 2019 as Facebook instituted algorithm changes, the novelty of the deal wore off.

The company is also feeling the crunch as people are becoming more cautious about multi-level marketing programs because of the many pyramid schemes being exposed. Needless to say, this is making it so hard for the good companies that are doing it right to stick out of the fold.

Our feeling is that the old adage “one bad apple don’t spoil the whole bunch” is not always an easy thing to understand for many.

How to N° 2: Founder(s) and/or Director(s) of the company

Before joining an MLM company, you must look for the names of the owners and/or managers of the company and check for information on them.

Why is this important?

The characters, the vision and the experience of these people determine how these companies are run.

Tell me, would you partner with somebody you didn’t know? Whether in marriage, business or any other field? You may end up dealing with a wolf in sheepskin. And I hope you know the consequences.

IT IS DIFFICULT TO SOAR LIKE AN EAGLE IF YOU HANG OUT WITH THE BUZZARDS AND CHICKENS ALL THE TIME.

That’s why in our reviews we try to give our readers these details. It’s then up to them to do a background check on the owners/managers/directors of the companies.

They may find information to comfort or discourage them in their choice.

How to N° 4: Products / Services offered by the company

 

Here, we look at the products and/or services of the MLM companies and ask a certain number of questions.

Does the company offer a product or service along with the program?

Are they of high quality?

Are they reasonably priced (That is, not overpriced)?

Are they the main focus of their business?

Do they stand by their products, services?

We also check out their product line to see if they are a good pick for making money. For if that is not the case, you will end up with so many complaints that you will do nothing but spin your wheels.

Know that while some products are easy to sell others are not. Your own experience as a consumer can tell you if there is a market for a particular product or not. Better, you can ally that with a Google search about it.

Keep in mind also that refunds, bad reviews and all around headaches are not what you want to get into this business for. So it is important to check all aspects of a company before investing in them.

Looking at the products the company is promoting will let you see if they are worthy of investing in and if they do indeed look legit.

Now, let’s look at them.

 

Examples

N.B: Here too the companies are listed in alphabetical order.

4LIFE

The company’s products include health support ones that are clinically tested and patented.

Claims made by the company are that they boost your immunities, help your general wellness and build muscle mass.

The company’s most popular selling products are Renuvo, for daily stress and aging and Transfer Factor Plus. Others are, Transfer factor Try-Factor, Transfer Factor Classic, Transfer factor RioVida Tri factor, and Fibre System Plus.

Prices are about average compared to their competitors’. But you can get very good discounts on your purchases if you sign up as a preferred customer.

One thing we deplore is the presence of 4Life’s products on Amazon and similar websites. We really wish that sales would be distributor only. But this seems not to be affecting distributor sales according to reports posted on Google.

ACN

ACN is a service provider of telecommunications (mainly wireless, broadband and landline), merchant services, energy, and other services.

The company offers voice over internet protocol (VoIP), cellular phone service, and satellite television. Also, landline telephone service with local and long-distance service, flash wireless and home security services.

They also have a smartphone app that offers international calling.

There are three models for the services offered by ACN depending on the country of operation.

  1. Reselling ACN branded services from in-country providers
  2. Sales Agents swelling contracts for local service providers
  3. Selling ACN branded services, mainly voice over internet protocol on ACN servers.

AMBIT ENERGY

The Ambit Energy opportunity is very unique. This is for the fact that the products are habitually used by virtually everyone around you!

In effect, they deal in retail energy and natural gas.

AMWAY

After designing, manufacturing and selling their first product called LOC, Amway was well on their way.

They started adding new products to their product line and soon they grew that line into one of the most successful ones of wholesale products available anywhere.

Soon they had a lock on the market that they enjoy up to this day.

They now pride themselves on over 450 different products that are made all over the world.

According to Wikipedia, “Amway brands include Artistry, Atmosphere, Body Blends, Bodykey, Body Works, Clear Now, eSpring, Glister, and iCook.”

Others are “Legacy of Clean, Nutrilite, Peter Island, Perfect Empowered Drinking Water, Personal Accents, Ribbon, Satinique, Artistry Men and XS.”

They also have all of the original products plus the company of Nutrilite as it has gone on to be a force all by itself in the MLM niche.

ARBONNE

The products list is made up of nutritional supplements, cleansers, sunscreens, moisturizers, and exfoliants.

AVON

One thing we noted that many people swear by this company. But that is not at all surprising as they personally have some experience using many of their products. We have to say they are some of the finest in the industry.

The company has a proven track record of award-winning products.

Many of their product brands are known worldwide. No wonder as they are at the top of their category for quality and reliability. Examples are Skin So Soft, and ANEW.

Avon is exclusive as well, and they are a huge reason why they can have such complete quality control and stand behind their products so well.

Their big selling point is based on organizing personal parties where the consultants give tips and advice to potential customers.

This company puts great pride in its product lines and stands behind every product with a 100 percent money-back guarantee.

So we have a line of products we can trust and feel good about distributing to the public.

 

FOREVER LIVING

They distribute personal care products, bee-derived cosmetics, aloe vera-based drinks, and dietary supplements. These include toothpaste, laundry aids, deodorants, and about roughly three dozen other products.

These products are all based on the ingredient Aloe Vera and its health benefits. But there have been several lawsuits over the years from the state of California and from The Environmental Research Center. They claim high levels of lead in the majority of Forever Living’s products.

And since the lawsuits the company has taken the named products including bee pollen, Forever Lite shakes, and Garcinia Plus.

It should be noted that these products are claimed to be part of this company’s detox program so this really raises a red flag on this program.

 

GANO EXCEL INTERNATIONAL

Gano has researched and developed a unique product called Ganoderma. It is the gem of the immunology niche. They distribute it worldwide.

The company has developed a wide variety of multi-million dollar brands of products that are Ganoderma–based.

Now what is Ganoderma?

First, the proper name is lingzhi mushroom, (GANODERMAA lucidum).

A Chinese product, it is claimed to be a spiritual herb that promotes well-being, success and divine power.

But what it really does is that it boosts immunity, fights fatigue, improves memory, and lowers cholesterol. Ganoderma also slows and can even reverse the aging process, stimulates circulation and reduces inflammation.

Ganoderma is known to have over 200 active elements and it works on every cell in the body.

Gano Excel International has used this mushroom to create a whole line of products that use this ingredient and help achieve all kinds of results. And they are well respected in their niche!

Their most popular selling items are their coffee products. These are known worldwide and carry a great reputation for quality.

All products created by this company are 100 percent guaranteed!

Well, as you see, they sure do have a well-established and well-respected company and now they also have the products that are in-house and unique. And they show the results they are claiming.

GNLD

Download the 56-page GNLD product catalog

This company has an extensive line of products.

One of their best selling products is the 3-Day Detox.

The selling points for this product are that it will:

  • remove toxins from the body
  • promote gut health, and
  • kick start weight loss.

Neolife bar is another product they offer. It:

  • curbs hunger
  • provides long-lasting energy, and
  • is a great source of antioxidants.

Yet another product is called the NeoLife Shake. It:

  • lowers your BMI
  • is great for cardiovascular protection, and
  • also reduces body fat.

All of their products are backed by clinical studies. These are posted on the company’s website.

There are concerns about some of the products containing too much sugar and too many proteins.

In effect, NeoLife’s products, when used as recommended, can exceed the daily allowance of sugar and protein intake. And both of these can actually be harmful to your body.

For example, if you follow the directions on their NeoLife fruits and Nuts Bar, you will eat two a day. But each contains 10 grams of sugar. Couple that with one of their shakes and you will be taking in an additional 11 grams. This brings the total to 31 grams of sugar with just these two products, exceeding the daily recommendation for women (35 grams) and just under the men’s recommendation of 36 grams!

Another negative side we found about their products was their being used for weight loss. While they work, the same results can be achieved with longer results by eating a balanced meal. And experts say this is the better way to go.

GNLD’s products are priced a bit high. You can buy them on Amazon and on their company website along with their promoters. And they do offer discounts for club members.

To become a club member all you have to do is sign up at their website. Then you will receive 15 to 25 percent discounts on products. You will also have access to the community and be eligible to earn points for free products.

HERBALIFE

Herbalife develops and sells personal care products, weight management, and dietary products and sports nutrition products.

They have an original protein shake which has been the lifeblood of the company. To this day it accounts for over 30% of their total sales.

Herbalife soon expanded their product line to include protein bars, aloes, vitamins, teas, and personal care products. They also have a line of vegetarian and halal products.

The company manufactures its own products in 5 facilities scattered throughout China and the United States. It also resorts to a couple of third-party manufacturing facilities around the world.

Herbalife have their own botanical gardens and grow and extract all of their ingredients for their products.

They also have many different clubs including weight loss clubs. In addition, they invented a diet plan that has been award-winning in several countries. This boasts an A rating from the Better Business Bureau.

How does that work?

If in the first 120 days of purchase you find any problems or defects they will replace the item free of charge.

These are all one of a kind products. They are the top of the line and in demand worldwide.

At the time of the writing of this review the company was in the middle of their March sale. Please visit their website for more information on savings and incentives.

LEGALSHIELD

This company’s products are just as they sound: prepaid legal advice and identity theft protection.

We were not happy to find quite a few reports of limited coverage and exclusions for many services people need.

However customers can have legal coverage plans and home protection plans from them that fit their individual needs.

They start at $17.95 and up for personal plans and $39 a month for small business plans.

How do the plans work?

They set you up on a monthly payment plan you can afford. And if and when the need for legal services arise, you have access to the network.

What about that!

Services Legalshield cover include consumer finance, real estate, collections, employment, estate planning, traffic, and civil litigation.

We find the Legalshield idea a really brilliant idea one. The same applies to their identity theft plans.

LR HEALTH & BEAUTY SYSTEMS

This company’s products are not only well-known worldwide but they are also best sellers everywhere they are found.

The product line includes perfumes, skincare products, cosmetics, nutritional supplements and even many more.

One LR Health & Beauty System’s product line everyone is familiar with is their exclusive line of Aloe Vera based products.

These are popular with women with brand names LR Zeitgard, LR Lifetakt, and LR Aloe Vera.

They also offer an exclusive line of men’s products. It is one of the only entities in their niche to do so.

One good fact is that all of these products are tested in laboratories worldwide. They are cruelty-free and have won recognition and various other awards around the world.

Besides, the company’s products are also heavily endorsed by the likes of Bruce Willis and Heidi Klum.

With a product line like this, there’s no doubt that they live up to standards of having a safe, quality product that they put first, above their MLM program. Because this is where a great company starts.

MARY KAY

The product line for Mary Kay is huge. This means there simply are too many to list here. But if one thing is for sure it is that they are top quality and priced very reasonably.

It takes a stand-alone product line to back a successful MLM program and this company surely has that covered.

With a product line of this size, it opens the door to a huge amount of potential customers. And according to reviews, it is quite easy to build a customer base rather quickly.

NATURA

There is a lot of information on Natura’s products and it was all good.

Here also, there are simply too many products to even begin listing them here. Instead we will do the next best thing, which is, tell you all about how they are made.

They have a solid line of products that are eco-friendly. Furthermore, if it is to make sure their products are both healthy and not harmful to the planet, they are incontestably the leader.

Natura use safe ingredients that are natural in origin. They do not allow any animal testing whatsoever on the development of their products.

The company has Amazon Forest ingredients, offer 100% vegan products and use ecological packaging. They are also carbon neutral.

This MLM giant also uses its products profits to fund education and the fine arts. Completely community-minded, the company backs all their products with a 100 percent money-back guarantee.

NATURALLY PLUS

The product line at present stands at 15.

These are sold exclusively through the company’s distributors and members. And we recommend visiting their website for more in-depth information on how they are made. You would also find any other pertinent information there.

Naturally plus do an outstanding job of describing all their products on their products page.

NATURE’S SUNSHINE

Searching out and reading many reviews on their products enabled us to find out something. That they are well respected in their research, development, and the production of their products.

Nature’s Sunshine are also placed among the top brands in their categories.

This company does everything to go beyond the label organic. In effect, they do extensive research on their ingredients with the emphasis on the full potency, purity, and their safety.

The management also throws its weight behind using only natural ingredients.

Nature’s Sunshine offer a large line of different products. These include shakes, vitamins, over 500 nutritional supplements, herbs, and minerals.

If you check many of the reviews out there you would find they are of the 5-star ratings. These concern both the company and their products.

Looking for Nature’s Sunshine products?

They are available both through both distributors and online stores.

NEFFUL

Have you ever heard of negative ion technology in a clothing line?

We never did until we ran into this company. And we just had to know all about it.

Back in 1979, Nefful introduced a line of undergarments that conformed to the body. They were made with a product called Nefflan itself created with negative ion technology.

The company’s website claims it enhances vitality and good health along with improved focus.

This declaration comes from the claim that the Nefflan fibers create a negative ion wrap around the body.

Nefful have since introduced product lines under their Natures Clean, Nefflan, Neuron, newell, and Nesse.

These products are anything but cheap. And the company does not provide any studies proving that these products do indeed make the wearers feel better and improve their health. But the customers who buy them swear by the results.

You can view a complete product line on the company’s website.

For the sake of convenience we will list some of the products we took a look at.

They are:

  • Leg warmers $135.00
  • Woman’s panties $110.00
  • King size blanket $1800.00
  • Cardigan $550.00

You get the idea?

These are not for the frugal spenders for sure. But people are buying them like crazy and swear by the results they are seeing.

The company also offers a secondary line of products. This includes a product called Optibrain, a nutrient made just for your brain. There is also dishwashing detergent and a thing called “Veggie Wash”, an organic all-natural laundry detergent.

One thing we really like is that these products are made in-house and also distributed in-house through their MLM distributors.

This, in our view, is a perfect set up for a successful multi-level marketing company to be able to take care of their distributors the right way!

You can find their products here. There is a drop-down menu that lists their categories.

The products are priced reasonably. However we did find them all listed on Amazon. This, to us, is a letdown.

We really like it when the products are exclusively sold by members and distributors, not in the general market.

OPTAVIA

Optavia offers different meal plans to help you lose and maintain a healthy weight. This is done through both their products and their personal coaches, who are also their sales distributors.

Here are their most popular diet plans:

  • Optimal Weight 5 & 1 Plan

The Pampered Chef’s line of product are well known and of the best quality. And they stand behind them with a 100 percent money back guaranty.

PARTYLITE

The product line of this company is the best of quality, choice and cost. The lower quality companies like Target and Walmart are not in the same league as Partylife’s products and cannot so much as compete with them.

Likewise, the more expensive lines like Yankee Candles and the likes are really not any better quality. So their higher prices keep them from affecting Partylite’s sales.

This makes them a cost-competitive company and that is good for distributors.

All of their candles are not only made from food-grade wax but they also have pure cotton wicks that do not produce any toxins. And they are billed as clean burn.

The company believes in being cruelty-free!

Partylite also offers an excellent line of flameless fragrance products and essential oils that are second to none. They produce some of the most pleasant fragrances we have ever seen.

In checking out their Home Styling tab, we found a whole line of home decor products that are not only stylish but also really inviting.

They also promote a product line called Bebalanced that must be checked out!

The fact that you can order products from their catalog or through their distributors makes them exclusive. And we love that!

This company has a pretty broad list of products.

All of them are not only tested but must also pass a very detailed testing procedure.

The company possesses over 100 patents and have over 120 scientific papers written on their product research.

Their testing is so intense that they had to take their third-best product off the market because it could not pass the stringent testing.

They use products that are pure and tested by 83000 different testing points to ensure they are fresh and pure.

TEAM NATIONAL

This became such a real challenge that we finally gave up on it.

We know Team National offers memberships to their shopping club which is their main business. But hidden in their shopping club are all kinds of products. They are insurance, jewelry, vehicles, financial services and on and on.

Our view is that such products are not part of the multi-level marketing plan. They are rather side investments the company has. For this reason, we will just focus on the membership business model under factor number 6 as far as the product goes.

TOTAL LIFE CHANGES

This company has its own flagship product called Laso tea.

The formula for this tea is created in-house and only sold through the company’s distributors. This makes this product exclusive.

Laso tea has some lofty claims. These include improving skin health, weight loss, relieving indigestion, and detoxification of the body.

And are people buying it up!

The product also comes with a 5-day weight loss program. This has received great reviews. The claims are that you will start losing weight within the first 5 days.

Besides, they also have a very diversified product line. That includes products under the categories of health and wellness, beauty and hygiene, coffee and tea, and essential oils.

TUPPERWARE

As in any successful program, the products offered for promotion have to be top quality. And we are glad Tupperware’s are just that.

Everybody at one time or the other has held a Tupperware product in their hands and knows how they work.

Today it is no different than in the past.

The containers are the best out there. The best part and a genius marketing idea is that they sell sets of all of their products. So collecting new pieces of existing sets keeps customers coming back. This makes collecting them fun!

So this company meets the first criteria for having a successful marketing plan. That is, they have the products. They make them all in-house and then distribute them all over the world. And they back them with a 100 percent guarantee.

VESTIGE MARKETING

This company offer a huge line of products (well over 250 to date).

It falls into the following categories:

  • Water purifiers
  • Air purifiers
  • Health Supplements
  • Home care
  • Health care
  • Woman’s hygiene
  • Ayurveda
  • Health food
  • Premium skincare
  • Men’s grooming
  • Oral care
  • Agri products
  • Colour cosmetics
  • Business tools

These products bear the name brands of Vestige, Ayusante, Enerva, Invigo, Lite Hose, Zeta, and Hyvest. Others are Assure, Denrt Assure, Mistral, Skin Formula 9, Truman, Agri82, and Vescare.

These are pretty impressive. Besides, all of their products are made in-house at their state of the art facilities. They are all Halal and GMP certified.

According to the company’s website, “Vestige is an ISO 9001-2015 certified company and believes in world-class service levels to all its customers. With over 2500+ online and offline sales outlets pan India, multiple international offices and several distributor centers, Vestige has been building a widespread network of distributors, which is constantly growing every year.”

These products are averagely priced some say and a little expensive in the opinion of others. But our findings put them about average compared to most multi-level marketing companies.

YANBAL

This company has different products. It promotes them in different parts of the world.

In Latin America, they concentrate on cosmetics for women and colognes for men as well as baby products.

In the USA they only deal in jewelry. This is designed by high profile jewelers in New York and handcrafted in Peru.

If we are talking of top-shelf jewelry this is it. It is 24 karat gold and features glass and crystal.

Yanbal’s products are well-established, high quality and reasonably-priced. Besides, the company stands behind them one hundred percent.

There is one interesting twist to their approach.

It is that they offer a potential customer their own personal stylist who is really a distributor. So far as we know, this is not done by any other company dealing in jewelry in the USA.

YOFOTO

You will have a very hard time finding any product lines in the general public. This is because the company keeps them close to the vest in addition to a very unique way of selling them.

Thus you cannot find them online, but you can view them on their website here.

Yofoto have a really big product line of top quality, well researched and tested products. They are offered exclusively through their distributors.

Although we could not find any specific products or prices but we did fall on a commitment by the company to its workers to expose them to unlimited markets to sell their products.

YOUNG LIVING

Donald Young, the founder of Young Living, became interested in essential oils and alternative medicines after a back injury. He became so enthralled with it that he and his wife Mary bought a farm and started manufacturing their own essential oils.

Soon they had a second farm in the USA and a third overseas. Not long after that they created the first automated computerized steam distillery.

Then they were well on their way to creating a 1.5 billion dollar annual business.

YOUNGEVITY

Youngevity have plenty of products, the bulk of which is in the weight loss field.

There are simply too many products! It would therefore be impossible to list all them here.

You can find them listed under the following categories:

We suggest you click a few links and check them out. This way you will get a good idea of what they have to offer.

At their website you can also sign up for their free newsletter and join their rewards program.

This program will pay you points for purchases and sharing their website with others that can be redeemed on future purchases and rarely discounted products.

YOUNIQUE

Youngique proposes a product line that is all-natural. They even display their ingredients on their products so people can see what they are buying.

The products are not only mineral-based and 100 percent natural but also they are chemical-free.

The following are examples of some of the many products this company offers:

  • EssyNaturals Eyelash and Brow Growth Serum Irritation Free Formula – ‘Dermatologist Certified’ – Guaranteed Results in Just 3 – 4 Weeks for Longer, Thicker, and Fuller Eyelashes by EssyNaturals
  • Younique Hot Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lash Mascara Black Sealed
  • Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes Plus Fortified with Uplift Plus Enrichi EN Uplift
  • YOUNIQUE ROYALTY ROSE WATER SPRITZ SPRAY TONER 1.35 OZ
  • Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes
  • Younique MOODSTRUCK EPIC Mascara Legendary lashes with a wave of a wand.

There are many positive reviews concerning the performance of their products. And, as it is always to be expected, a few that say they do not work. It’s rather an absence of them that will be shocking.

We must stress again that we did not find many negative reviews but a multitude of positive ones.

Younique does have a 100 percent money-back guarantee on all of their products.

ZURVITA

By far their most popular Zurvita product is Zeal Of Life. It has had studies done on how well it performs and it gets a 5-star rating.

The company has many other products that are great sellers and produce a variety of results. These range from boosting the body’s immune system, helping boost the digestive system to weight loss and beyond.

All of their products are FDA approved.

Most of this company’s products come in shakes, syrups or powders. They are mixed in either water or other drinks, depending on the user’s tastes.

How to N° 5: Number of countries in which company does business

How to N° 6: Business model / Compensation plan

 

As always when we look at these companies we want to make sure they are putting their customers and distributors first.

So another important factor we take into consideration is checking how the MLM companies back their representatives in their MLM program. Do they stand by them? Also how they treat their employees, customers and distributors. Do they take good care of them?

An important component of this is their business plan.

When doing this we want to make sure the company is looking out for the people who are working their program. We also want to know that it is not a pyramid scheme of any kind.

We watch out for the quality of the business side of the program, and any red flags that we may encounter along the way in doing research for the review.

What we are most concerned about in their business model is to see if it is possible to make money working with the company.

We also check if they are profitable as an MLM program.

Is there room for advancement in their compensation plan?

We will also be checking out their business plan to see if they are a good pick for making money.

This is where things can get really tricky. Often it is the compensation plan which makes distributors, enrollees, or joiners of MLM companies to fail.

Some MLM compensation plans are difficult to understand, thus leaving you in an indescribable quandary. How can you succeed in something that you can’t even make head or tail of?

Other MLM compensation plans are made in such a way that if you recruit somebody, they go to one leg of the binary plan and others go to the other leg.

However, you’re required to keep a certain number on a leg under some harsh conditions or lose them.

This way, people build a leg, lose it, build another leg and lose it too. And the cycle goes on.

Finally the member ends up feeling like the business plan was expressly set up to make them fail.

But a good MLM compensation model or business plan will help you build and retain your members and make money.

With that said, let’s see how the compensation models or business plans of the MLM companies we recommended in our reviews stand.

 

N.B.: The companies are considered in alphabetical order.

 

Examples   

4LIFE

4life uses a popular multi-level marketing model for its distributors. They call it the Life Rewards Plan.

It will cost you $29.95 for the company’s starter kit. This is designed to introduce you to their products and get you familiar with them along with their proven sales techniques and aids.

You can terminate your membership and get a full refund for this kit if you follow the policies of the company.

The best way we have seen to build this kind of business is to create your own blog. Then you can draw people in as customers and as potential new distributors that you can add to your downline.

By blogging you could easily bring in a load of free traffic you could easily turn into product sales. At the same time, you could be branding yourself in your very own niche!

By adding great content about the products and how well they work, or by doing online reviews you could bring in customers from all over the world from the comfort of your home, and rock that bank account!

The business model is explained at the company’s website. It is very confusing with many loopholes one needs to jump through to actually make any kind of money selling their products. But if you understand it, it is actually set up quite nicely.

You can earn money in several ways: retail profits, commissions from sales to preferred customers in your downline, and commissions from sales of distributors in your downline.

They have several different levels for their distributors, Associates, Builders, Diamonds, Presidential Diamonds, International Diamonds, Gold International Diamonds, and Platinum International Diamonds.

As we said, the program can get a bit confusing. But there are many different ways to make money working with this company. And we see good results reported on distributor earnings. So it does work.

With this kind of program, one does need to either be experienced with working a multi-level model or at the very least take some serious time and study how it works so you do not get caught up in the different levels.

There are many resources available online to learn the ins and outs of the basic multi-level marketing business plans. And once you get the jest of it they all become easy to understand.

ACN

Unlike most MLM companies, ACN lets its members select their own compensation plan.

They can choose binary, unilevel, hybrid or an executive breakaway plan and it also goes way deeper than just the four choices.

Let’s take a look at the compensation plans offered to members.

1. Hybrid MLM compensation plan

The hybrid plan is actually a combination of two MLM plans the members can choose.

The most common is both the binary and unilevel plans combined. But you are free to combine them in any way you wish.

Using the unilevel and binary plans combined as an example, it would start out looking like a binary plan with a left and right leg. Then when a spillover occurs, the new downline is added to the weaker leg, similar to the unilevel plan.

This example will make new members as important to the plan as older ones. It will also allow the downline to grow quickly and with equal strength.

2. Unilevel compensation plan

This plan is what the company calls an unlimited width plan. In other words, everyone you would sponsor would be on your frontline and there would be zero spillovers.

This plan allows you to build longer and stronger and with no restrictions.

3. Binary compensation plan

This plan is set up in standard fashion, with a left and a right leg structure.

One leg is the power/profit leg and the other is the weak/profit leg.

Each new member under this plan must recruit two new members to add to the structure, one on each leg. This allows for quick growth.

We like the options for making money that ACN has set up. And the best part is there are even more opportunities.

They also offer straight commissions on sales to those who want to sell just to the public.

Each plan has specific rules and bonuses and they are all set up for the members to make a good commission per sale.

Also offered by the company are complete training sessions. In these they teach new members everything they will need to know to be successful working this MLM plan.

It is a very refreshing approach to multi-level marketing.

AMBIT ENERGY

To get started working in Ambit Emergy you will need to invest a one-time $75.00 fee. And the only cost from that point forward is a $24.95 maintenance fee for your own personal suite of websites. This initial investment can be earned back within your first few days with the recruitment of a couple of new customers.

Your only job is to gather new customers and recruit like-minded people who want to do the same. Then you can be in business and have the money coming in within days.

There are three ways to generate income with this MLM company. They are:

  1. Generate a few new customers to get your investment back with bonuses from the company. This will make your business profitable from this point on.
  2. Additional bonuses are paid for building a team of customer gatherers that will be placed in your downline that bring in new customers.
  3. Receive Residual income month after month from your customers and the customers from the team you are building. Also from team members’ customers who go ahead and create their own Ambit business.

In summary, every time one of the customers in your downline and in your gatherers’ downline pays their power bill you will receive residual income.

The program also offers an easy to use support system that has all the tools, and unlimited training. There is also guidance through consultants who will help you in your journey for free.

The compensation plan’s initial investment is affordable. Further, you are given the means to recoup that investment with a few new customers and start being profitable within days.

It is also set up to earn residual money almost from the start.

The support system is simple to use and free to its members and available 24/7.

Lastly, they leave how much you want to earn up to you. The more you work the program the more you make. They boast many of their gatherers make full-time plus incomes.

AMWAY

Like most MLM companies, Amway pays for both direct sales and for recruiting new distributors they call Independent Business Owners or IBO’s for short.

Amway pays on several levels including sales performance bonuses and incentives.

Because Amway has so many companies under its chief brand, this opens up different marketing strategies for its IBO’s. They can get into individual circles for each subdivision and create a downline over and over thus increasing the potential for no cap profits.

They also offer insurance for their distributors and all kinds of sales incentives.

Amway also offers many different training sessions both online and live and have conventions all over the world.

ARBONNE

To join Arbonne you will need to purchase a starter kit for $79.00. The company claims this is all you need to invest to get started.

The kit includes a starter guide and samples.

There is a yearly renewal fee but we could not find any info on how much that may be.

Sales of their products come first, but while you are recruiting new customers you will also be adding new distributors to your downline.

You will start your own personal online store and recruit customers who will then order products from you. From this you will receive 35 to 50 percent off of the products you order. In addition, you will receive commission checks for any sales in your downline.

Hopefully, some of these customers will also want to become distributors like you.

We could not find any information on who pays for this personal online store but hopefully it is supplied by the company. If not this could get expensive.

The numbers on how much their distributors make are not very good. Only 4.1 percent earn over $300.00 a year and a whopping 83% gain nothing at all!

Now, these numbers are normal for most MLM programs, and it takes a real go-getter to make money in this kind of work. Note that it is not for everyone, but people do make a good living doing this. Unfortunately, they are just in the minority.

They also offer a free Mercedes car program but from what we have read about it, we recommend to steer clear of this perk unless you are a top earner.

ARIIX

This company has so far been above and beyond in everything we have researched and their business plan is not different.

They have their own compensation plan they have put together called the Activ8 compensation plan.

They incorporate all three basic multi-level marketing plans, unilevel, binary, and matrix into their own model they call The Ariix Multiline.

This plan pays out $.50 on every dollar earned. And that is completely in a league all by itself.

The multi plans auto balance and there is even a cost of living increase.

We do believe we have found the best MLM plan we have ever run across right here.

Again, the website has all of the details involved with getting started working for this company. And we recommend heading over there and checking it out in detail to truly see how good it really is.

AVON

Here is where this company excels above most other multi-level marketing companies as they have a proven program that has been feeding their distributors for over 130 years. Also, they have so many success stories it would be impossible to list them all in a book!

How it works is simple: they sell exclusively through their distributors, thus making it impossible to be undercut anywhere. This system gives them total control of their products and costs.

You will not find their product on Amazon or like sites for less than you can buy them through the company. And this is the biggest part of their success.

They have a program for women who want to enjoy quality products and make money doing it!

They claim that no dream is too small or too large. And they can make it happen for their distributors and they really have a family-based atmosphere.

To become a distributor for Avon you first purchase a starter kit for $25.00. That is full of samples to get you going on building your customer base. You will agree that this is a very small out of pocket expense to open the door to an awesome business opportunity.

Selling products is their number one priority and it is the distributors’ also. That is the second reason why this company does not bend. The compensation is the direct result of your sales, and by having the best product available it is a set up for a win-win situation all around.

You begin making money on the dollar of your fist sale and as you grow you will be in charge of how far up the ladder you would like to climb.

The next step is to reach the President’s club which happens after you reach sales of $10.000. This opens many great perks.

You will now enjoy a 40% commission on all sales and be part of many of the companies’ VIP privileges. And there are many of them!

The next level is building a downline of distributors you have personally recruited. And this is where the money really starts to roll in. This will lead you to the opportunity to be a member of the advanced leadership program. This program is for the career-minded people who want to do this for a very healthy living.

With your $25.00 starter kit you will have enough to run three campaigns and get started on a customer base. You will also have access to setting up an online store of your own and have access to unlimited training from the company. These ensure you have all the tools you need to make this a success.

You will build your business up to the level you want it to be at, be that with just enough customers for some extra cash to the level of a full-time lifestyle change. This is all up to your desires!

Avon was built off the backs of what they call Avon ladies and Avon men. They would go door to door selling their products and their brochures. They are also called representatives and sales representatives, depending on which market you are in around the world.

The company still uses this model to an extent along with online stores. They even have Avon parties similar to what Tupperware uses.

Avon sells to their representatives wholesale like similar MLM companies do. Then the representatives sell those products at retail and keep the difference as profits.

The company also has a sponsor program where recruits under representatives earn money for the sponsors.

Avon has extensive training available to their representatives. Many different incentive plans and sales goals awards are also available.

They also have an annual Avon Repfest where they hold a three-day event that is open to all representatives to attend.

The Repfest is full of training seminars and is held at prestigious places like the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. This event moves around the country from year to year and is fee-based.

The company truly seems to care about its causes and its workers. They stay true to those beliefs and we can get behind that.

CAPTAIN TORTUE

Business models for multi-level marketing programs are all pretty similar in that they pay commissions for product sales and building a customer base first. Then they pay commissions for recruiting new members and building a downline.

Then they pay residual commissions on your downline sales and lastly add incentives like bonuses and perks.

Posts on the company website explain a family atmosphere between consultants and the company and we also see this in the reviews we have read by current and former consultants’ experiences working there.

Answers to the following questions are posted on their website:

Question: Do I need to invest money to become a consultant?

Answer: No, you can try it out for free and see if it is what you are looking for.

Question: How do I sell the products?

Answer: You have home parties or throw parties at customers’ homes using a pop-up store.

Question: What is a pop up stare?

Answer: At a pop-up shop, our consultant presents the Captain Tortue collections. She gives you great advice on style. It’s like having a personal shopper…but with all your friends!

There are many other questions and answers posted there and we suggest a visit to really get the feel for this company.

CUTCO CUTLERY

Cutco products are marketed through their Vector Marketing division. The program is what is called a single-level direct sales marketing system.

What that means is they recruit students who are looking for work through flyers distributed to colleges and high schools.

They also advertise in newspapers, word of mouth and the use of various internment media and boast a sales force of about 60,000 students.

Recruits are called representatives. They are asked to start selling to family and then expand to friends and anyone they can find who will come to an in-home demonstration.

Each in-home demonstration earns the representatives a $15.00 commissions above any sales.

Starter kits are free to the sellers. They are required to attend free training sessions to learn how to create the demonstrations and make the sales.

Representatives are paid commissions on sales starting at 10% for the first $1000.00 in sales and capping at 25% on sales of $6000.00 to $10.000 and 30% commissions above the $10.000 mark.

DOTERRA ESSENTIAL OILS

This program has been named the fastest-growing MLM program in the world. It boasts sales of over one billion last year alone.

They claim to be the highest earners in the business. This is because of the advanced training they provide to their affiliates and the use of experienced affiliates as personal mentors.

You can earn money by commissions both upfront and residual. They supply an online lead generation program and offer a 25 percent discount on all products to their affiliates and a 25 percent discount on online shopping.

They report a 79 to 85 percent rate of retention of all their customers. Besides, reviews all seem to point to them being one of the best MLM programs available today.

You can join for $35.00 and this will enable you to buy the products at wholesale prices. But you will need to buy a starter kit to be able to become an affiliate and sell the products and recruit other affiliates and customers under you.

If you do buy the starter kit you will be credited back your $35.00 membership fee.

DUBLI NETWORK

Dubli offers a multi-level marketing program. This pays both upfront money and residual income for marketing customer memberships.

Your business would be to build a global distribution company that markets Dubli.com memberships to its global online cashback shopping portal.

They offer a Partner program that allows any sized organization, even nonprofits, the ability to earn money.

Normally a company that promotes recruitment over products is bordering on being in scam territory. But this one seems to be on the level, selling memberships instead of recruiting people for a downline, even though the new members act as a downline.

How this works is that customers you recruit will earn you money through their MLM program. Customers who buy through your affiliate links will earn you money as well. Thus you will be getting the best of both worlds in one place!

DXN

We were very impressed with the business model DXN follows.

The first thing we liked is the fact that it is free to join DXN and become a distributor.

All you need to do is go to their website and sign up for your distributorship and you will be on your way.

Once you are registered you will have access to all of the online training and tools the company offers. This is all for free, to help you get started and build your very own downline and start making money.

They are claiming this is risk-free and all you need to invest to make this work is your time.

They have 20 different ranking positions that start at the distributor level and moves up to the crown Ambassador level.

The company uses a 9 income stream template to achieve all of the different levels required to reach the top.

DXN do care about their distributors and offer many different ways for them to earn money including:

  • International profit-sharing
  • Group bonuses
  • Leadership bonuses
  • Handphone cash incentive
  • Travel seminar incentive
  • Star group bonus
  • Overseas trip cash incentive
  • Development bonus

As you can see by the list, they appear to be set up for their distributors to succeed. By offering so many different levels and different ways to reach those levels, advancement can happen quickly for those who can work hard and stay focused.

ENERSOURCE INTERNATIONAL

The Enersource International Matrix Plan

This plan is a basic 2×12 plan that pays from your sponsors and recruits. And, of course, the more you sponsor, the more money you make.

Both customers and affiliate members’ sales will count.

You will get credit for direct and indirect sponsorship and retail sales and you can earn down all 12 levels which can be quite profitable.

The Enersource Unilevel plan

This plan follows the uni-level compensation plan that is used with many of these multi-level marketing programs.

An example would be level one consisting of members you have personally sponsored. Level two would consist of members of your sponsored members and so on down the line.

They basically consist of different levels of sponsorship and this process is explained in detail on the program’s website.

Now comes the part everyone is quick to ask: how much does it cost to get started in this company’s program?

The minimum amount you will need to spend to qualify to make commissions with this company is in the $49.00 package.

This package is entry-level and does make you an affiliate.

Other packages are offered and they start at $249.00. These packages will maximize your profit earning abilities and are recommended for serious marketers.

You can check out more information on their main website. Then choose the one that fits your budget and gets you to the point of making money as quickly as possible. Surely, we all like that!

FOREVER LIVING

In our research, we found many interesting numbers associated with the ability to make money as a distributor with the company that we will share here.

The costs to join Forever Living as a distributor range from 87.92 to $364.65 and are set up as follows:

  • Clean 9 Pak — Chocolate Lite Ultra ($87.92)
  • Clean 9 Pak — Vanilla Lite Ultra ($87.92)
  • Start Your Journey Business Pak ($253)
  • Start Your Journey Skincare Pak ($253)
  • Touch of Forever ($364.65)

As far as training goes the company will supply all the training needed to become a successful distributor.

They are in the forms of videos, brochures, workshops, and meetings. It asks that if you know a fellow distributor in the company to team up with them. But if you do not they will find one for you to team up with.

Distributors resell the products at retail prices either through direct distribution or through the company’s MLM program. They keep the difference from the wholesale purchase price to the retail sale.

Distributors do get a 30% discount on all of the products they buy and this can increase by 18% as they sign up new recruits.

This can add up and including 48% commissions which are extremely good. And it does get even better with more discounts depending on what level the distributor is on at any given time.

As far as more recruiting incentives they can reach from between $800 to $2000 a month depending upon how well your recruits perform.

This is where we come to another potential red flag in the company that is hard to figure out with any hard numbers.

They claim that 88.6% of their distributors do not make any monthly commissions. This is because they are really just customers getting their products for personal use at wholesale prices. And this could very well be the truth.

From there the numbers are impressive, with 69% of the distributors that do get monthly commissions get around $110 a month, while 30% receive around $1500 monthly and the whopping 1 percent club is raking in around 29K a month.

There is real potential to make serious money with this company. But you must build a huge downline and be very aggressive. And if you succeed you will be set for life with Forever Living.

GANO EXCEL INTERNATIONAL

Download the Gano Excel International business plan in pdf

You can get started by buying a distributor kit for as little as $25.00. But you can also go all the way up to $995.00 for their comprehensive business builder package.

They are set up on a binary business model which we try to avoid. But this one is actually set up with a twist in the uni-level team building.

You will build your downline just like other MLM programs. But this one will also allow you to earn unlimited commissions from pool bonuses, fast start bonuses, direct sales, team commissions and check match bonuses.

The binary legs are set up like binary legs, but will payout regardless of what the other legs are doing.

This is a win-win setup that really appeals to us!

They also use state of the art back office software that runs the compensation plan. What we love about it is that it is easy to understand!

GNLD

HERBALIFE

Back in the early 80’s Mark Hughes set up a compensation plan for his distributors that revolutionized the MLM niche.

He put the emphasis on selling products first and then recruiting fellow distributors and building a downline.

Not only will his distributors buy the products wholesale and sell them retail and keep the difference, but they will also get payments from sales in their downlines. They will also benefit from many other incentive programs the company offers.

This was a new twist to MLM. It thus took the pyramid scheme out of the picture as any company that relies directly on recruiting without a quality product will eventually collapse. This situation leaves the members at the top financially healthy and their downline broke.

The many reviews written online on both Herbalife’s products and their business model are mostly positive. Many claim this company is the number one pick for getting involved with MLM programs. This is because the potential to make huge profits are 100% and that is a huge boast!

IMMUNOTECH

Downloadthe comp plan

We first were greeted with claims of world-class training, premium quality, support, and a generous compensation plan.

You can join as either a customer or as a consultant.

Join as a customer and you will receive 25 percent off all merchandise and access to special offers. This also includes the option to subscribe to the monthly auto-ship discount program.

Join as a consultant and you will be part of their multi-level marketing program. Here you will not only make money on selling products but also on recruiting like members to place in your downline. That will make you money on their sales also.

You will also have access to their training programs and team meetings along with daily support in running your business.

Your welcome kit will cost you a one-time $45 fee. They have a very detailed program with many different levels and bonuses.

JEWELS BY PARK LANE

Download the compensation plan

One of the best business models we have seen in a very long time is what greeted us when we went to their website and checked them out.

A company that really cares about its products first and foremost which is imperative for a good multi-level marketing company to survive. But they also care about their workers equally!

This company gives you the choices of becoming a director, social stylist, a fashion stylist, branch manager, area leader, or a sales VP. All with their individual perks.

All commissions are paid weekly and range between 30 to 50 percent. There is no quota required ever.

The company has a Mercedes car program with a $700 monthly bonus and fabulous incentives. These include cash bonuses, weekly cash bonuses, recruiting bonuses, dream vacations, free jewelry and more.

You will be required to purchase a start-up kit and they have a few to choose from.

Their digital kit comes with your choice of $99 worth of jewelry that will best suit your business.

Their standard kit is their most popular. It is loaded with $1000 worth of jewelry for $229. With this you will qualify for commissions immediately.

The presidential kit is their kit for the serious marketer who wants to dive in headfirst and has big plans! It includes $2500 worth of jewelry for $639. $500 of this purchase price will also be counted as sales volume for any contests you may be interested in!

Along with the kits, all memberships will also include a Park Lane email address, online invitations, and order blanks. Others are online order submission, a personal website, customer shopping 24/7, and $100 annual subscription fee.

You can also host your very own party and receive your product choice up to $200 for $25 and receive $20 per order shopping credit. This will double with sales over $40.

You will also be able to purchase up to four items for half price, and 4 items from the host reserve collection for a discounted price, plus make 30 to 50 percent commissions.

These incentives are pretty cool when you consider that selling jewelry is one of the easiest in the MLM business!

Jewels by Park Lane do not like to be called a multi-level marketing company because of the bad reputation that title carries. But they really are exactly that, however all in the right ways.

Companies should be proud to model themselves after Jewels By Park Lane and know this is how an MLM company is run!

KANNAWAY

The greeting you will find from Blake Schroeder when you first inquire about working this multi-level marketing program is this: “This is a way for people to get involved in the cannabis industry by simply registering as a Kannaway Brand Ambassador, getting some great products, and being able to educate the world.”

Download the compensation plan

Along with an exceptional MLM program in place that rewards those who wish to grow their very own Kannaway business, the perks are second to none in the business.

They offer an elite retreat, a black-tie event for their top-earning ambassadors and more.

The only requirements to join Kannaway are that you are 18 years or older and you pay the annual brand ambassador fee of $54.98

You will then need to buy a value pack that ranges between $249 and $1849. This, depending on what you choose for your pack.

Kannaway offers a vast amount of training in the video gallery that is available to all of its ambassadors.

It also requires any ambassador who signs up a new ambassador to assist these new recruits in training to ensure that the downlines are secure and productive.

They also offer a FastStart program that enables ambassadors to earn triple direct sales commissions

LEGALSHIELD

To get started working with LegalShield you must first buy a membership.

Then you will sign up as an associate and pay the $99.00 fee and sign the MLM agreement.

You will then start selling memberships and earn commissions off of the sales. Plus you will sign up new associates and start building your downline.

This downline works like most of the popular MLM business models you will find.

You can find more information on how this model can work for you on their Legalshield compensation page and on their Legalshield compensation plan pdf.

The company boasts that the average associate’s annual income is around $44,000.00 a year for independent reps and 1 K plus for sales reps. $1,732 for sales managers and $6,000 for a sales professional.

There is money to be made working for this company and the product supports the MLM model quite well.

One potential red flag with Legalshield however is the number of lawsuits both pending and settled associated with this company. But we understand when you are dealing with legal issues across the country laws are different from State to State.

We took a look at each individual case we could find info on. And as we suspected, every one of them deals with or is dealing with local and State laws that, as we already said, vary from State to State.

LR HEALTH & BEAUTY SYSTEMS

When looking up their business model we went right to their website and found the following quote which they claim is their mission statement.

“Give every individual on the planet the chance to better their quality of life with innovative and high-quality products, an attractive business model for sales partners, and numerous opportunities for all employees.”

What an awesome statement! And it is in the correct order of what makes a true MLM strong and dependable!

Let’s dig in a bit deeper.

The website also presents new members with 3 reasons to work with them.

1.   Appreciation – You will become a fully-fledged LR partner with bonus trips, world tours and membership in the      company’s unique car concept.

2. Equal opportunities – Every single partner gets a chance at total success with the company. The company does not care where you have been, they care about where you are headed!

3. Freedom – You will be your own boss and free to set your own goals.

They boast that the way to achieve success in this company is by using their tried and tested network marketing program supported by their quality product line.

Cars program

The company offers cars as an incentive for hard work and has already handed out over 18000 cars worldwide and counting.

Your events

The company sponsors events and parties worldwide. They also have an annual convention and training seminars. All are available to their partners.

By being a partner you will be enjoying 40 percent commissions on all sales and an MLM program second to none.

This sounds almost too good to be true. But after reading personal reviews online they all pretty much say the same thing: this company is for real!

Not only do their partners make a living distributing their products, but many of them are also self-made millionaires!

Now that is pretty impressive!

What we really like is the fact that they have events all over the world. And also that they offer sponsored trips for their members, and really promote sharing the experience of success.

According to their website, these events and parties are full of the best entertainment and food available. And they are big hits among their workers.

MARY KAY

There are two ways to make money with this company. You can sell their products and you can recruit new distributors.

To get into the program you must buy a 100 dollar starter kit to qualify as a distributor.

Since Mary Kay is a private company they do not have to disclose information on their distributors. So there is not much available to the public on the details of their program. But in many reviews that we have read, the distributors claim some pretty good income levels.

What we could find was recruiting commissions of 13% paid directly from the company and not your downline, and retail sales commissions of 50% over wholesale. Not bad at all.

The company does have an annual turnover rate of 68%. Most of this is due to people who try to be distributors and decide it is not for them and go back to being regular customers.

If you are conversant with MLM, you know you must be focused and driven to make money in any MLM program. And you also know this is not for the average person.

Even with the higher turnover rate, it looks like most end up staying as customers. And that is the heart of the business. Without those customers the rest cannot work.

NATURA

Natura is a multi-level marketing company that sells its products in several ways. These include through 3200 stores and through what they call consultants.

At the present time, the company has over 1.7 million consultants selling their products in direct sales.

We were extremely surprised by how the company conducts itself both in the community and with its workers.

We read many reviews with current and former consultants that had good things to say about the company. We were really surprised by the fact that we could not find a single negative review.

After hours of research, we failed to find much information on how to join the direct sales team other than they request you send them a resume through their corporate website.

We did find though that membership fees per year are $1000.00 but that is about all we could get.

Using the theory that with 1.7 million direct distributors, there must be a good compensation program. But we simply could not find any public information on how it works.

We did find however that in 2015 they created a retail sales entity and began selling retail through their online stores. This kind of bothered us as we know the best MLM companies offer their products exclusively through their distributors. We thought maybe this company has found a way to make it all work together.

Further research did enable us to find that when they went rental in 2015, they did expect the majority of their sales would still be coming through their direct sellers. So maybe they are offering a limited line of exclusive products through their retail stores.

NATURALLY PLUS

Through their tens of thousands of distributors worldwide, this company sells massive amounts of products. It also offers a well-established and well thought out business plan for its distributors.

This model is one of the best we have ever seen and we are very impressed with how professional this company is.

The company has set up registration online. It is free to register and it is free to order products. You never need to keep any inventory, ever.

You get the potential customers or new distributors to this sign up portal and the company will take it from there. Now that is really a cool touch! This makes it possible to do business anywhere there is the internet.

There are no quotas to meet and the compensation plan is loaded with ways to make money.

We recommend taking a look at this plan for yourself at their website and be sure to download the brochure explaining how their compensation plan works.

You can find the information here.

NATURE’S SUNSHINE

Nature’s Sunshine has set up their business plan two-fold, with the emphasis on the products and customers first. They do this by offering free membership with a $40.00 purchase online direct from the company.

The company considers the customer first and they offer this free membership so their customers can get the products wholesale.

Many members are just consumers joining for better prices on what they personally use.

The membership includes a 45 percent discount on all products ordered directly from the company. This means that you do not have to go through any distributor to order.

You also get regular publications on products. These come along with qualifying for their seminars and up to periodic 30 percent rebates on your already discounted purchases.

Lastly, you qualify to become a distributor if this is your chosen path. This is where the company stands alone.

They offer a lucrative program that is full of high commissions, and rebates of up to 30 percent as mentioned previously. There is a new car program. But the best part is a stand-alone downline.

Taking a closer look at the downline, we found this company is unlike many MLM companies. They let you build what they call groups.

The managers of each group have many different ways of earning commissions.

They are not restricted by different levels of people below them.

Each group is a stand-alone one. And the total sales of each group will determine the commissions you will receive.

You can have an unlimited number in your group. And the bigger the group, the better as there is strength in numbers.

It gets even better with company-sponsored exotic vacations, trips, and seminars.

This to us is how any MLM company should be set up because without the customer nothing works.

NEFFUL

It looks like they use a standard binary multi-level marketing business model.

We do not care for the binary part of this plan. But we have to say they do make up for it on the other side of the model by offering plenty of incentives and bonuses. And this helps in case you have a leg drop on your downline.

You make commissions from product sales and sales in your downline.

We found six different levels of ranking for this program starting with a $55.00 sign up as a Consultant.

The next level is a Manager, then an Area Manager then comes an Area Manager+ followed by an Area General Manager.

Each level has requirements to qualify that are explained in detail on their website.

There are also other incentives like their leadership bonuses, incentive bonuses, and a net pool.

These last incentives are what makes up for the binary model. So we can get behind this compensation plan and feel good about it.

NHT GLOBAL

They call their business plan the Global Compensation Plan.

You have two options to join this company’s compensation plan.

The first option is through paying a $50.00 business builder pack. This will grant you access to your back management and support office. There is also your own personal website for 1 year.

The second option is that you become a rep only. Here, you must pay a $75.00 registration fee followed by a $9.95 fee to be paid every 3 months to maintain active status. You will also have access to your support center and back-office and collect commissions.

They offer 3 ways to earn commissions: retail sales, generational bonus, and Two-Team Infinity Compensation System.

The first is easy to figure out: you sell products at retail prices and buy at wholesale and keep the difference as a profit.

The second is set up like most multi-level marketing models. That is, you earn commissions on your downline distributor’s sales up to three levels deep.

It looks like you will have to qualify for earnings on each level starting with bronze for level one at 3%, silver is second at 5% and the third can be either platinum or gold or both at 10%.

So by achieving all three levels you would be then earning at all three percentages which are 10%, 5%, and 3%.

This can add up very quickly. But reports indicate it is hard to move up to earning all three levels in commissions.

OPTAVIA

Optavia uses a standard multi-level marketing model for its coaches.

You get commissions on product sales and on your downline product sales from the people you recruit to become coaches.

There are three main ways to earn money with Optavia.

  1. Heath coach – This income is from direct income sales
  2. Business Coach – This income comes from building coaching teams
  3. Business leader income – building and leading your own organization.

The complete compensation plan can be found here. We recommend checking it out as it is very detailed and it would be hard to properly explain it here.

ORIFLAME COSMETICS

A standard multi-level marketing plan is in place for this company and they take great care to accommodate their distributors.

Oriflame offers many bonuses and free trips, have seminars and all kinds of incentives for their workers.

To join this company you must first fill out a VIP customer registration form found on their website.

You must then complete the three 90-day welcome plans they have in place.

You can earn money in three ways.

The first way is to buy wholesale: you save by buying your personal products at wholesale prices.

The second way to make money is to share your catalog with others. These will then purchase products out of your catalog at retail prices. You will be ordering them at a 25 percent discount, thus keeping the difference.

The third way to make money is to become a distributor and build your own sales team.

By recruiting other people to join you in selling products, you will be building your own downline.

Now you will not only be making money from your direct sales but also you will be doing so from the sales of the people that are in your sales crew!

When you join Oriflame you will have access to all of the company’s training sessions and seminars.

Selling their products is done socially online and in your very own company provided online store.

You must buy through a direct dealer of their products, even on Amazon. This is because they must be distributed with permission from the distributors thus making them exclusive.

PAMPERED CHEF

This company is set up in what we call the old fashioned way as far as MLM goes.

You put on parties and sell products at them for a commission while recruiting others to do the same.

Building your downline can increase your commissions quickly. And the company claims that with about 25 hours of work a week you could make on average 45 k a year part-time.

The more you work the more you sell. And the more you make that a full-time effort, it could bring consultants around 100 k a year. And that is not bad money at all.

Starting commissions are 20 percent of sales with a cap at 27 percent as you grow.

You get paid with two deposits a month into your bank account.

To start out with this company you are required to buy a starter kit.

There are two kit options, the $99.00 kit and the larger $159.00 kit.

The kits include products and the sales pitch you will use to sell said products.

You must get to know all of their products and how to best use them to make sales. And they do offer training in this area.

You will also get a personal website that you can sell from. This was a treat to find out as many similar companies promise you all kinds of things but do not deliver. But this one does, with an easy site to get around.

If you enjoy cooking and like to make money, the combination of the two will work well together in making you a good profit. Should that be your case this is the path you want to take.

Another great upside for people who love their products is by being a rep for the company. You do get a great discount on personal purchases, and this stuff is not cheap!

One downside of this kind of business plan is that the company wants its members to start by selling to family and friends. But this is a very limited and personal market that does not last.

In no time a person is out of these types of leads and who wants to practice on your friends and family?

This has always looked cheap to us. But it is used by many multi-level marketing companies. And we know why.

Because it works.

Still we do not like it.

PARTYLITE

The company resorts to the standard multi-level marketing model most used in this business.

You can become a consultant by choosing one of three kits available for purchase.

  1. The $49.00 kit. This kit is designed for immediate profits and has one decor piece and all the tools you will need to get started.
  2. The $99.00 quick start kit. All of the above plus special quick-start tools.
  3. Delux starter kit. This kit is for those who want to do a large presentation and have a whole assortment on hand. This kit comes with no upfront charges if you hold a minimum $350.00 party

You can see these kits in detail on the company website.

Their compensation plan is hard to find in detail as they keep that information reserved for people who sign up. So we recommend maybe doing some readings of reviews from people who work there now by making a Google search.

What we have found are many satisfied distributors. There is also a whole lot of happy customers that will openly recommend this company’s products over anything else available on the market.

They are very passionate!

PLEXUS WORLDWIDE

The one thing we have found about this company that we were not happy about was that their business plan is a binary MLM plan.

This is set up like most binary plans, with a strong and a weak leg. This is the weakest of the MLM plans used. It tends to keep the people on the top in cash and most of the people below them the workers.

To combat this they have created many different levels for their ambassadors (distributors) to make commissions from, along with many discounts and the likes.

To become a distributor, which the company calls ambassadors, you will first need to buy a starter kit. The company calls it a slim pack.

To do this you must create an account on their website and pay the yearly maintenance fee of $35.00. This covers your replicated website.

You will then have 30 days to purchase your welcome package.

You have two welcome packages to choose from, one at $99.00 and the other for $199.00.

To qualify to start earning commissions you must sell $100.00 in products. Once that threshold is met you are on your way!

We do really like the size of the commissions.

For example, if you sell one slim pack at retail pricing you will make $100.00. You’d agree that is a nice figure.

If you have a downline selling for you the money adds up real quick. But, and yes, there is always a but: it seems their prices are very high.

Now they do combat this by only offering their products through their ambassadors. So this is exclusive. Meaning, they do not allow any pricing on the internet besides their ambassador’s websites.

You can only sign up to be an ambassador through an ambassador.

PRIMERICA

They have an eleven tiered multilevel marketing system. This system pays up all eleven levels through commissions of sales of their products and services.

Primerica are not a pyramid scheme. And it is possible to make 95 percent of profits on sales as one grows in the company. But it takes a serious commitment to making these kinds of profits.

There is a $99.00 one-time fee to join Primerica. Then comes a $25.00 monthly fee from that point on.

The company calls their sales force investment representatives. They ask these people to make warm sales calls with family and friends.

The reps are also encouraged to set up over the kitchen table meetings with anyone they think they can turn into customers.

Primerica supplies sales meetings and training meetings. This is for the purpose of getting to know all the products and teaching you all the information you will need to become licensed to sell life insurance.

They also ask for lists of friends, relatives, and acquaintances and their phone numbers. It is to help set up sales calls for their reps.

As you see, this is now starting to sound like a very specific way to make a living. This system is reserved for those who excel in these types of businesses.

QNET

The company is set up on a binary MLM model. It allows compensation for sales from everyone in your group and gives its distributors 8 different ways to earn money.

They allow profits from:

  • Early payout
  • Repeat sales promotion
  • Travel incentives
  • First purchase profit
  • Step commission
  • Year-round rewards
  • Rank advancement bonus
  • Retail profit

With these eight different ways, money can add up rather quickly. And it does, according to what their distributors are reporting. And this, despite the binary business model.

We will discuss this more shortly.

The fact that they are based in China really does not matter as they have so many regional offices throughout over 100 countries. So finding a branch that works where you live is pretty easy.

To become what they call an independent representative (IRs) you simply find a local office and buy a ten dollar starter kit.

You will then earn $250.00 for recruiting six people for your down line, three on the left and three on the right. These are called legs, and this is where our concerns lie.

The only complaint we have with this business model is it is binary and thus hard to maintain the legs. And if you are not careful they can collapse and you will then need to start all over again.

When using this model you must get both legs of your group to perform the same. But this is very hard to achieve. Thus what happens is the people who are put in line early make all the money and those that join further down the line end up coming up short. Hence the model will collapse.

This is borderline pyramid scheme material.

SCENTSY

It is concerning the business model that we think this company stands alone in their niche.

They offer a simple plan of paying 25 percent commissions on sales of their products through their distributors exclusively. This means that they do not make their products available to the public but rather through their distributors. So you simply cannot find them anywhere else.

No retail sales are allowed!

This is also set up the same as many of the most popular MLM business plans. That is, you can also recruit new members and they will be placed in your downline. Thus you will then be able to receive a percentage of their sales along with 25 percent of your sales.

You will have access to seminars, an online training center, your very own personal website, and one on one consultant support. There are also team page, live events, an online work station, monthly newsletters, and much more.

Scentsy is also a member of the Direct Selling Association.

Scentsy are unique in their business plan. They have a very interesting concept on how to keep their distributors satisfied while making things as easy as possible for them to reach a successful level in the business.

To get started with Scentsy you will need to buy a $99.00 starter kit with $10.00 shipping and local taxes.

Once you join you will be mentored under the distributor who recruited you.

There are many reports of distributors not making any money or making very little. One can also find complaints that the company targets the wives of military members. This is because they are easy to recruit due to the lack of being able to maintain regular career jobs because of constant relocation.

We feel that this would make sense. This is because of the lack of experience and commitment of your average person looking to venture for the first time into a MLM career. This would be a perfect setting for failure.

After a bit of research, these numbers are about average sitting right around 95 percent. This is due to the fact that it takes a certain type of person to both sell and recruit through any MLM company.

Most first time distributors will not be able to raise the amount of business and recruits it will take to make this work. So they get discouraged and walk away before they get to the point of making money.

In other words, they really are not committed to making it work at all costs. That is really the mindset you need in MLM.

It is not for everyone. That being said, those who excel in this type of setting are able to become top sellers and make huge profits with a company like this.

You have a proven quality company, product, and exclusive distributorship. The rest is up to you.

SHAKLEE

They run a popular multi-level marketing plan. This rewards commissions for sales of products and for sales of recruited distributors in your downline.

Distributors get between 16 to 36 percent discounts on products and 12 to 20 percent commissions on downline sales.

They also pay out weekly bonuses and offer other points-based bonuses.

There are four different signup packages available for new distributors.

  • Level 1: Consumer
  • Level 2: Member
  • Level 3: Distributor
  • Level 4: Qualified Distributor

The best way to check out their complete program is to visit their website. This is because it would make this review extremely long if we posted the many different levels and details.

We will say we like their plan and we love the way they approach selling their products first.

The company offers five different plans for their customers.

  • The essential plan
  • The RX for a Healthier Life Plan
  • The Shaklee 180 Starter Kit
  • The Life Plan
  • The Vitalizing Plan

Each plan has specific results and you can explore these plans and more on their website.

SOUTHWESTERN ADVANTAGE

Younger people of today may think this business plan is new but it has been around longer than this company which we said was founded in 1855.

Door-to-door sales used to be the only way you could buy some vacuum cleaners and other products. And people make a great living selling this way.

Set up strictly on commissions from sales, the independent contractors can and do make money. While it is not new, how this particular company does it is a bit unconventional.

Southwest Advantage recruits a few hundred college students from universities in England and thousands of university students from the United States. They are recruited every year to be independent contractors and sell Southwest Advantage products for the summer season.

Each contractor needs two people called endorsers to sign a letter of credit covering $500.00 per signer. This is to cover costs in case the said contractor does not pay what’s owed to the company at summer’s end for their products sold.

Endorsers are usually the parents of independent contractors. But they can be any responsible persons.

The independent contractor will attend a week-long training seminar in Nashville, Tennessee at their own expense. They will then work about 70 plus hours a week doing up to 30 presentations a day. They then must attend a local sales meeting every Sunday.

Contractors are required to cover their own expenses. They are able to keep the down payments on each order they sell to cover their day to day costs.

At the end of the summer season, the contractors have a meeting in Nashville. There, outstanding balances are paid to the company for the products sold. Then commission checks are cut and given to the independent contractors.

STELLA AND DOT JEWELRY

There are several options for being a distributor for this company.

You can choose to be what they call a representative. They also call this a Stella and Dot Stylist. This is for a $199.00 investment plus tax and shipping. You also get up to $750.00 worth of inventory to start selling.

Reps make 35 percent commissions on each sale by having what the company calls trunk parties. These can be held in-home or on the internet through their Facebook page.

This option has been working well with relative ease creating large groups of people attending.

You may also sell to individuals.

Option number two is to build your own downline and share in 18 percent profits per downline sale.

Option number three is to join the Ambassador Club and immediately start earning through their mobile app. There is also your personal website and cutting edge tools supplied by the company.

They have weekly training calls that you are required to sit in on and for your first 60 days.

They do charge a yearly renewal fee of around $100.00.

SUNHOPE

We had a very hard time getting information on their compensation plan and their business model. But we liked what we did find.

They seem to use a standard model with product sales first, then recruitment second. And the company pays out on several different sources. It is a single level MLM plan.

Sales are one-on-one and their sales force is over 440,000 strong.

Currently, they have 440 paid employees.

There are retreats and bonuses that are included for their top sales makers. But we could not find any information on how much it would cost to join Sun Hope International.

We did find information that stated training is provided. And also that the company takes care of its distributors and treats them like they are members of the management family. A pretty big compliment!

In 2008 they have established what they call Sunhope Elite Academy. It specifically trains their distributors worldwide using a professional sales training plan. That teaches new recruits how to succeed in multi-level marketing sales.

We did find the following video but it is not in English. Feel free to watch it and try to translate it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5jfCj9YTtGk&t=112s

It looks to us like they are launching a new business plan for 2019.

TEAM NATIONAL

This is where we found plenty of information as they are all over Google, both good and bad. So we will sort through it all and see where we come out in the end here.

The company does claim that joining their MLM program is free. But right upfront they charge a signup fee of $25.00. Besides, you will also need a start-up kit for $55.00.

To get started in Team National you are really going to need to be a member of the club itself in order to understand and sell their memberships to others.

These are very expensive membership options and you only have a choice of two.

  1. Standard membership option $795.00: Two year membership for a single household.
  2. Premium membership option $2195.00: Two year membership that covers parents and grandparents. It also covers children and grandchildren and even extends to your business along with 5 employees.

Once you are an active member you can purchase a personal website from the company. This includes hosting for $99.00 for members and $495.00 for non-members.

You are now what the company calls an IMD (Independent Marketing Director).

Now you are ready to start building your downline. You do this by selling memberships to others and receiving commissions from your sales and those of your downline.

You must make at least two membership sales a year to qualify for commissions. Renewals do not count towards your quota. But on the other hand, cancellations also do not count. So this can even out nicely.

There is a multitude of ways to earn points from your downlines. To go into them all here would take a very long time. So we are going to summarize.

You can earn points and commissions on membership sales, on your downline membership sales, plus many different levels of bonus commissions. There are also points that can be used for personal discounts when using your personal membership.

It looks like a very inviting program with many different ways to earn money. The commissions are good. As much as 100 dollars a membership sold.

The bottom line here is this will take some very hard selling with the membership prices as high as they are. Besides, one must know everything possible about the memberships and what they entail as far as savings for the members.

We could not find any information on training opportunities from this company. Needless to say, this was a bit disturbing.

This type of hard-selling requires skills that must first be learned and then be perfected. It is not a way to make quick money for sure. It will take time and instructions to accomplish this.

TOTAL LIFE CHANGES

Total Life Changes uses a binary MLM model that we do not much care for. This is because with these models if you do not keep them even and one side takes off it crashes the other leg. Then you lose any money on the table, and it goes to the upper levels.

This is never a good set up and we were disappointed in finding this. But they do have a saving grace here: they offer four other ways of making money:

  • Retail profits and commissions from direct product sales.
  • A fast start bonus
  • Lifestyle bonus
  • Matching bonus

You can make up to 50 percent on sales of products and you get paid weekly and we like that. But there is not much information on how many of their distributors actually make anywhere near that percent. This, although they do claim their top sellers make 7 figures a year.

Another example of ways to make extra money is to sign up and sponsor three new distributors. And they all become qualifies in their first 30 days you get a bonus of $60.00 plus up to 50 percent of their product sales.

If you are good at recruiting, this could add up quickly. And before you know it you are making real money. And although we do not like to have to concentrate on recruitment over product sales, in this situation it can work well.

You can become a member for free. But you must buy a starter kit for $39.95 and pay a monthly auto-ship of $40.00 to receive commissions.

They must also maintain 40 personal QV every month to stay active.

TUPPERWARE

Yes, the company do still have those Tupperware parties. And people are making a living on them by building themselves a huge customer base and receiving incentives for meeting sales goals every day of the week.

Granted, this is not your typical multi-level marketing program that people are used to starting out. But that formula does exist once you reach a distributor level.’ You will then have a down line and the earnings potential increases dramatically.

It all starts with the parties.

To become a host is easy. You just buy into a party of your own with two different options.

The first option is a $70.00 investment which will get you their holiday hustle kit. The kit includes:

  • $280.00 worth of products to demonstrate
  • More and Merrier canvas tote
  • 50 order forms
  • 10 catalogs
  • 3 months paid of a pro-level my.tupperware plan

The second option consists of a $125.00 investment which will get you their business starter kit. This kit includes:

  • $450.00 worth of products to demonstrate
  • personal support from your local support leader
  • 20 brochures
  • 10 catalogs
  • 50 order forms
  • 3 months paid of a pro-level my.tupperware plan
  • More and Merrier canvas tote
  • Branded planner
  • Set of five host fliers and confident start fliers.

They claim that with either starter kit, you can be up and earning money within the first week.

The company also offers all kinds of support and training online. It also has many different incentive programs in place as their people move up the ladder of success.

So now they have met the second criteria and the third criteria for the making of a successful MLM business. That is, they have the business model based on sales first and they have the products sold exclusively by their reps.

VESTIGE MARKETING

Vestige uses a cumulative multi-level marketing plan that in our opinion is the best there is available. It is much better than most of the binary models used by most of the MLM companies.

This type of plan prevents you from ever dropping from the level of achievement as you keep on achieving on higher levels. Thus you will always be building income from the lower levels as you rise.

Imagine rising up to the top levels and still collecting all of the income from your lower levels! This can add up rather quickly into a really good income in no time.

You can join the company for free. But in order to become a distributor, you will need to purchase 1100 Rupees in products and a business kit which will cost you 200 Rupees.

Besides the cumulative MLM model, they also offer seven different ways to make money through bonuses.

  1. Saving on consumption (personal product purchases)
  2. Accumulative performance bonus
  3. Leadership overriding bonus
  4. Car fund
  5. House fund
  6. Director bonus

The real kicker of getting in now with this company as a distributor is they are expected to grow like crazy in India in the next couple years. And the country is ripe for the picking customer wise.

We suggest the next 3 to 4 years are going to be the best time to make money with Vestige as they are growing so quickly. Eventually they will slow down and saturate the markets they are expanding into. Then there will be less to go around for the distributors.

As for the present, the time is right to get rocking!

YANBAL

We will focus on the overall plan the company uses in all of their divisions. This in some areas seems a little outdated. But in the jewelry line it is actually unique and new.

They encourage having parties, similar to Tupperware and the likes, to show off their products and make sales. In the process the distributor hosting the parties makes commissions on any sales.

You earn from 25 to 35 percent commissions on sales. This is in addition to other bonuses they make available for discounts on products.

You also recruit new distributors as you go, earning commissions on your downline up to three levels down. But it is hard to get to the third level profits unless you are a heavy recruiter.

Level one commissions are paid out at 6 to 10 percent. Level two pays 2 to 5 percent. But level three sales are at 3 percent.

One thing we noticed is that the company front-loads its bonuses and discounts and even cash bonuses for the newbies.

Once a distributor has been there a while it becomes less frequent and you must recruit hard to continue to receive them on a regular basis.

Getting started in this business requires investing in a starter kit for $199.00. This comes with many products and training materials.

In Yanbal’s jewelry niche, they recommend their distributors wear their products daily as sort of a walking advertisement. This helps drum up new customers.

This seems a bit odd. But according to their training material, it works. So we will hold judgment on this technique, having not seen it in action previously with any other company we have reviewed.

The good news that makes this company a very good choice for working with is that they follow the three rules of a quality MLM company.

  1. Marketing
  2. Sales
  3. Recruitment

YOFOTO

Yofoto offers what it calls a 360 degree three-in-one network model career life spark.

They offer not only the chance to make serious money selling their products but also you get a solid career with the company.

They take their distributors very seriously and offer state of the art training programs and world trips as rewards. They will provide overall career development in creating what they call the most respected marketing partners. These are members of the international marketing elite.

That is a pretty big mouthful and one we like to see because this company is really serious about their products, image, and reputation. It also considers its marketing team as important to their company as their upper management.

They are private in what any investment is about without actually contacting them and starting the sign-up process. But we are willing to bet it is worth taking the time to investigate if you are looking for a strong company to make an MLM career with.

We are pretty confident you are not going to find your average MLM model with this company.

In 2009 they set up an international development process that created markets worldwide and has been expanding markets across the globe.

YOUNG LIVING

Young Living has the standard MLM system in place. Distributors are required to make 100 dollars in sales a month to qualify for commissions.

They can then move up the ladder by building a down line of like-minded distributors. The commissions are the greatest from their downline distributor’s sales and moreover from their own personal sales.

The best way to get started with this company is to buy a starter kit for $165.00. You can get into this program for as little as $40.00 but the $265.00 kit is the best value.

This kit will include $400.00 worth of products, your membership, 12 essential oils that are most popular sellers, and a diffuser.

You must also enroll in the essential rewards program. This program allows you to receive perks and free products and extra rewards for loyal members.

The first 3 months of membership in the essential rewards program will earn you 10 percent back on your purchases. From four to twenty-four months, you will earn 20 percent back on your purchases. And after twenty-four months, the figure jumps up to 25 percent.

In addition, you will earn loyalty gifts for consecutive orders of three, six, nine and twelve months.

After twenty-four months of consecutive orders, you will earn an ER exclusive oil formulated by D. Gary Young.

Once you reach ER status you will be able to open all kinds of perks with the company. This includes shipping discounts.

YOUNGEVITY

Download the business plan pdf

The first thing we noticed when visiting this company’s website is that they are in the middle of what they are calling a March kickoff promotion.

You can visit their website for more information on this as it looks like a seminar-type meeting with speakers and likes.

How you make money with this company is just like most other multi-level marketing models. You buy products at a discount and sell them to your customers at retail prices. Then you keep the difference as profit.

As with other MLM models you also build a network of distributors under you. This pays out in discounts, bonuses, and profits from their product sales.

You can sign up for as little as $25. But in order to make any serious money, you would need to buy one of the company’s starter kits which range from $115 to $500.

We could not find out what type of a MLM program they offer, as in binary or not. But we did find plenty of reviews online that support their distributors.

The company provides a large support group. It also has an established marketing system in place to utilize. And the training they provide is excellent.

As with just about every MLM program you will have to work hard on recruitment and keep at it day to day to see decent results. And if you love selling and recruiting, this company will work well for you.

YOUNIQUE

The business model is pretty straightforward. Potential distributors that the company calls presenters/hums buy a starter kit through their website for $99.00

These presenters are then required to buy products from the website wholesale and resell them for a 20 percent profit. This rises to 25 percent after presenters reach their first goal of $1000.00 in sales.

These resellers are encouraged to use social media and any other means to build a downline of customers for their products.

The presenters/hums must buy products every month to maintain their membership.

Younique also encourages presenters to recruit new members. These will hopefully buy a starter kit themselves and then be put in the presenters/hum’s downline.

This part of the business model has a separate commission plan and can get quite lucrative.

Because of the recruitment requirements for increased commissions, the company does have a bad mark as being similar to a pyramid scheme. But all indications are that this is not true. And they have not been bothered by the FTC at all.

There are reports of many people who, when they tried to make a living with this company, failed and ended up dropping them.

That is expected as it takes a certain person to be able to both sell and recruit members successfully.

If this person is you, then this could very well be the company you are looking for to give it a good shot at success!

ZURVITA

This company’s compensation plan is set up for success. It claims that almost anyone can make a full-time income.

That is a pretty large claim so let’s take a closer look at how they can do this.

You will first pay a $35.00 enrollment fee and become a consultant for the company.

You will then qualify to earn money in 6 different ways:

  • Retail sales
  • Weekly building bonuses
  • All-star bonuses
  • Rank bonuses
  • Residual overrides

The ones that will succeed in this program are those who know how to build a downline and maintain it. This, while moving up the ladder and hitting all of the bonuses.

In other words, this company is not for beginners. This goes against their statement of almost anyone can make a full-time income. That is simply not true but because of the percentages offered through all of the levels this is the real deal. You just have to know what you are doing.

 

We know of a place that has everything you need to start a successful home business and they can walk you through it step by step! Just check out our number one recommendation for more info. And the best part is it is free!

How to N° 7: Annual sales

 

The size of the company’s annual sales also counts. How can a company make a good turnover if it wasn’t good?

Generally, the higher the company’s annual sales, the better it is.

But like the position above, this element can also be deceptive.

A company may make sales based on stress placed on recruiting and deceptive compensation models like the binary with legs.

We have reviewed companies which made good annual sales but we did not recommend them because of such aggravating factors.

An example is Lifevantage Corporation which boasts 214 million in annual revenue.

How to N° 8: Pros and cons

In our reviews we also look at any pros and cons of working an MLM program.

It is impossible to really say that any one given MLM company is the best. This is because each one of them has their pros and cons. And much of a person’s success working any given MLM program depends on the individual’s strong points.

One person might excel in cold call selling while the next person’s strong points could be in group party settings.

Generally we recommend a company if the pros outweigh the cons. How can it be otherwise?

 

N.B.: The companies are listed in alphabetical order.

Examples   

4LIFE

  • Great company
  • Outstanding reputation
  • Good training program

  • Unsettled lawsuits involving Trump’s involvement with the company

AMBIT ENERGY

Pros

On the pro side of the coin, this MLM opportunity offers a service that virtually every household and business utilizes in energy. They also offer a service at a better price than current utilities can do. Besides, they are diving into solar energy and are always looking for ways to grow.

Cons

The only cons we could find come from consumer activates who claim customers acquire rate hikes after their initial contracts expire. And the company has been sued by several states. Happily, they have refunded customers for overcharges.

They have also been criticized for high connection fees.

ARBONNE

The pros

  • Well established and respected company
  • Cheap start-up cost
  • Your own online store
  • Great products
  • Product prices are affordable
  • Safe products for both the environment and people
  • Association with a nonprofit called Arbonne Charitable Foundation for teenage girls and boys

  • Lack of information on their business model

ARIIX

The pros

  • Outstanding company

  • No signup cost
  • Exclusive in house line of products
  • Exclusive availability of products
  • Woman based sales force.

The cons

  • High prices for retail customers
  • Woman based sales force (This is really not a con, just a fact that may make it hard for guys to get into it, although it should not, that is why we listed it under pros also. It would be a guy thing getting in the way, not the company, loosen up guys!)

CUTCO CUTLERY

Pros

  • Sales commissions are paid directly from selling the products
  • Knife sets can bring $500.00 in total sales for one set
  • Good part-time job for students looking for extra cash
  • Informative training program
  • Quality products
  • Excellent warranties
  • Solid company with years of experience

Cons

  • Unpaid training sessions
  • Warm sales to friends and family
  • Set up times and demonstration are unpaid and up to the representatives.
  • Only for those who do not mind warm sales settings
  • Several legal issues
  • Bad reviews by former representatives

DOTERRA ESSENTIAL OILS

The pros

  • Extensive training
  • Experienced mentors
  • 25 percent discount on products
  • Low-cost entry fees
  • Rewards program
  • Worldwide customers and support
  • High-quality products
  • Solid company

The pros are endless with so many selling points and the size of their commission program really makes them a step above most MLM programs.

The cons

The biggest cons are from former associates and all the negative publicity their claims have created.

The founders’ former association with the marketing company called Young Living created much negative publicity. And when many people hear something negative, they seem to believe it at face value and then move on, never looking back and checking to see if it was really true.

This leads to negative reviews and many bad statements for a company. So you must be ready to hear negative feedback from some in the industry if you become affiliates for Doterra.

The products have been given a bad reputation of not being pure by the former company. Though this was all proven to be false accusations, again people tend to hear what is first reported and run with it. So associates must be able to deal with misguided negative views.

Another con is the price of their oils. While you can buy comparable oils in stores for a much lower price, the company claims you are getting what you pay for with these other companies. And the customer retention numbers Doterra boasts would back that claim.

DUBLI NETWORK

The pros

  • Global reach
  • Number one in their niche
  • Well-established and respected founder
  • Great product access
  • Well put together compensation plan

The cons

  • Customer complaints on payouts

DXN Reviews

GANO EXCEL INTERNATIONAL

The Pros

  • In house products
  • Great company

PRIMERICA

The Pros

There are many pros for the right kinds of people. And of course, only you know if you have what it takes to work under these conditions.

You can make a lot of money with Primerica if you are the kind of person that can sell to your family and relatives. This is also true if you can make cold-call sales.

It is a solid company that is well respected by others in their industry. Besides, they are willing to walk you through all training and licensing that are required.

Primerica has weekly training meetings and plenty of support available. It is to make sure you succeed. Because without you the company would not work.

The Cons

One thing we did not have any trouble finding is plenty of cons for this multi-level program from the average marketer. But keep in mind these cons are coming from people who could not make money doing this type of marketing. One would expect them to give a negative review of this company.

The first thing we found is they do not put their representatives first. This comes from the fact that many former sales reps report they were constantly telling them that they did not need to understand the product, they must just sell it. This tells up they put the product first which is a huge red flag.

Many reps complained of higher prices on renewals. Besides, their products and services run an average of 25 percent higher than their competitors’.

The company targets low-income households and they load down their reps with services they really cannot afford.

The Cons

  • Binary business model
  • Lots of legal problems

We want to point out that the legal issues we have researched all seem to be around their gold coin business. And considering how large this operation is, we are not surprised there are reports of issues.

It is hard to find any corporation that does not have some legal issues when doing business in so many different countries. So this does not worry us much.

Legal hammer to suggest bans or complaints or legal issues concerning MLM companies

How to N° 9: Bans / Complaints / Legal issues

As was to be expected, only a few companies had legal issues or complaints. Despite this we recommended them because of certain mitigating factors.

CUTCO CUTLERY

A Class action lawsuit by former representatives has just been settled by the company in February.

Former workers complained they were made to take training sessions without pay. And they actually won a settlement for 6.75 million dollars.

A Cutco Cutlery/Vector company’s spokesman declared they settled the suits in order to move on and focus on business and not be bogged down by a court battle.

They claimed that their sales force are independent contractors and not paid employees. For that reason they have no right to be getting paid for attending the training.

Cutco provides all of its training free of charge and thus feels that it is an adequate return for their representatives’ attendance.

Yet another class-action lawsuit is pending between independent division managers who are claiming the same thing as the previous lawsuit.

DUBLI NETWORK

We are a bit concerned with the number of complaints we found while researching this company.

The majority of them came from customers who are not getting paid their pending cashback checks. However most report they do eventually receive the money.

It sounds like an overloaded system or even a lack of training concerning their accounting system. This is because they do not dispute the money owed, but for the fact that they just take a very long time in some cases in paying it out.

HERBALIFE

The company has had its fair share of legal issues from the beginning.

In effect, they have been sued several times by several different federal agencies for making false claims on their products.

One of them was that they had high levels of lead in some of their products. So it was alleged that this was causing liver problems in people using their products. This allegation was however pretty much discredited in the courts as not true.

Other lawsuits were also filed by distributors claiming mismanagement of payments for services. Fortunately the company has settled these by paying over 200 million out to these distributors.

Still other suits are pending. Some of them claim that Herbalife is just a glorified pyramid scheme. As such, the chances of making a living as a distributor for this company is one in five thousand.

Yet, the company thrives and has, for the most part, survived the legal issues and is still growing.

MARY KAY

You can imagine how surprised we were that a company in this type of business does not have any real lawsuits against them. Rather, they have taken others to court for infringement and other business issues!

We were able to find only two cases.

The first case was Woolf v. Mary Kay Cosmetics. The plaintiff won this suit. She claimed she was illegally released from the company for not making her quotas for 3 consecutive months.

Her argument was that this was caused by illness. In effect, she had cancer and the case applied workplace rights to an independent contractor for the first time in history.

The second case we came across was against Touch of the Pink Cosmetics. They were buying leftover stock cheap from former consultants of Mary Kay distributors and reselling them for a huge discount on their website.

This suit was won by Mary Kay.

On the topic of animal testing, Mary Kay has taken a stand against it. They were even the first company in this niche to do this by signing a Peta Pledge.

SOUTHWESTERN ADVANTAGE

We said earlier that the student sellers for this company had to put in over 70 hours of work weekly.

Because of these long hours coupled with the lack of benefits and cover for expenses of their independent contractors, several campuses have banned this company from recruiting their students for work.

They feel the Southwestern Advantage should treat their contractors as employees and that said employees should get employee benefits.

The University of Idaho, Durham, Maryland, Birmingham, and Harvard all joined in on the ban. But the company still recruits students. This is because the ban is legally non-binding.

YOUNG LIVING

This company is legit in its multi-level marketing practices. It is also in no way a pyramid scheme. Yet they have had their share of legal issues involving false claims.

The company received a warning in 2014 against declaring that their products are cures for diseases such as Ebola, Insomnia, and Parkinson’s disease. Other claims concern Cancer, Diabetes, Autism, Dementia, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Heart Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and Hypertension.

The above resulted from Young Living’s distributors making these claims on their websites. And since then the company has put a code of ethics in place that all distributorshttps://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/content/edit/599966# must follow strictly.

The company also ran into major trouble in 2000 with the design of their distillers. This was after a worker was killed in an explosion. And they paid $10,280 in fines for seven violations.

Another case in 2017 cost them $760,000 in fines for illegally trafficking Spikard and Rosewood oils.

How to N° 10: Our view of / take on the company

 

There are so many opportunities in the MLM field today. When choosing one to invest in you must make sure to take a look at all areas of performance and check whether it is a good choice for your money.

We give the company either a thumbs up or a thumbs down at the end of the review in our view or take on it.

We always round up our MLM company reviews with this. People’s opinions may be biased. But in our reviews, they are based on the elements discussed in the review.

We may even recommend a company with some reservations.

Examples  

N.B.: The companies are presented in alphabetical order.

4LIFE

Let’s state straight away that we like this company. We believe that it would be good for people who love selling. The same is true for those that like to communicate with individuals either through group settings or blogging.

We are impressed with the popularity and quality of their products and their prices. And although we do not appreciate seeing them on Amazon and other websites, yet they seem to sell well for everyone. For this reason, we can overlook this issue.

Our view?

We give 4Life a thumbs up and recommend it for both the beginner and the experienced multi-level marketing worker. Only on condition of doing their homework on the business model.

Our feeling is that you can make either a part-time or a full-time income with this company. We think the best way to sell to both preferred customers and recruit new distributors for your downline is through blogging.

ACN

This company has not only great products but it is also well-established in its niche.

ACN provides an exclusive dedicated servers for their branded voice over internet protocol. And it is only available through the company. So you have an exclusive product to sell.

The compensation plan is second to none with many different variables that can be chosen by the members. This is a sort of build your own compensation plan, if you wish to know. And we really like that.

For all those reasons we give ACN a huge thumbs up and recommend it to anybody looking for an MLM company to make money with.

AMBIT ENERGY

There are negative reports about Ambit Energy. But we are not too concerned with them as every company has growing pains.

It seems to us that they have done the right things in each situation they faced. Furthermore they are a very strong and well-respected company.

We are very impressed with the company’s products, their history and their commitment to helping people make money in their compensation plan.

For the fact that reviews about Ambit Energy are positive, we give them a thumbs up.

AMWAY

Our review found good things about this company. Our personal experience using their products growing up speaks volumes about them. And then living next door to a very highly successful Amway independent business owner all make us give this multi-level marketing program a huge thumbs up!

In effect, we know firsthand how the products work and how eco-friendly they are. We also saw how much our neighbor was constantly flying off here and there on trips and business ventures. What else do we need to sure like that idea?

Amway have an outstanding product line. Besides, they back their distributors better than any other MLM company we have reviewed. No wonder they hold the number one spot on the most successful MLM companies in the world.

ARBONNE

There’s no hiding the fact that we had a hard time with this one.

Although Arbonne is a legitimate company and it does have a good product but it does harbor some areas of concern. We can cite pending lawsuits and recalls. Moreover, they lack profits by many of its distributors.

Despite these the company does have a good business plan for experienced marketers. They also do propose a very affordable start-up cost topped with great discounts.

This makes Arbonne desirable for many of the hard-hitting marketers looking for a good MLM company to work with.

We have a concern though. It is about the lack of information on any hidden costs that we could not find. But the company assures there are no hidden costs so we have no choice but to go with their word on this.

We have to give Arbonne a thumbs up for the experienced. But for the beginners it has to be a thumbs down as companies like this tend to eat up the inexperienced marketers.

ARIIX

We have to ask you to get to the Ariix website and check them out from top to bottom. Then don’t hesitate to get signed up if you are really set on working in multi-level marketing programs.

A warning however.

Ariix are not for everyone. But for those who love it, this is your home!

We give this company the biggest thumbs up possible and they deserve it!

AVON

This company is on our list of top MLM programs. As such we are completely sold on their products and their compensation plan. Not surprisingly we give them a huge thumbs up!

Avon has the reputation of a leader and this is not stolen!

Not all MLM companies care as much about their members as their profits. But this one does and it shows.

So in answer to the question we often see, that is, can you make money with Avon, ours is a resounding yes. Not only can you make money with this company but also you can make as much as you desire. So the sky is the limit, so to speak!

Even though sales have been down and they are in the middle of a reorganization of sorts this company is still the number two direct sales giant in the industry.

Avon is a caring company that is a force against animal testing. Coupled with the fact that it is a major player in the fight against breast cancer, that is tops in our book.

The company takes care of its distributors to the point of offering them scholarships. They are also a huge supporter of philanthropic causes.

Now, to the question, “Do Avon distributors make money?” the answer is yes, they do. In fact, Avon representatives even can make all kinds of it if they are good at direct sales.

Being an Avon representative is a wise choice for those who have what it takes to make it in the world of direct marketing.

CAPTAIN TORTUE

We feel sincerely that this company has every single element that is necessary to be an awesome multi-level marketing company to work for.

One, it is product sales first based. Then, it offers an exclusive product line that is only available through their consultants. And finally, they propose a great MLM model.

Moreover they do not focus on recruitment and then they treat their consultants like family. That, to us, makes them a great place to be at. So we give them a huge thumbs up!

We think newbies to marketing as well as veterans should be able to go far with this company. For you guys, show your feminine side and get on this!

Are you OK with giving home parties? Then you should be able to take this as far as you wish. And that is all we ask for when looking for a good MLM program to work!

CUTCO CUTLERY

This is a very old company that has established great training. It has also made a single-level direct sales program not only work and but work well.

True, this is not for everyone. But for those who are comfortable doing warm sales, it can make some serious extra cash in a part-time setting.

Legal issues do come up for every company in business. So we think that what Cutco is going through right now is nothing more than a normal process of changing times and ideas. And we believe they will get it all sorted out.

As warm selling is not for everyone negative reviews from former workers are bound to crop up in this kind of business model. Therefore, for us, this does not raise any red flags.

Our conviction is that this company is not in any way running a pyramid scheme and really is legit.

Cutco Cutlery gets a thumbs up from us as a way for young people to get into the sales force and get their feet wet. And we are sure they will be introducing new ideas in this new online social era!

DOTERRA ESSENTIAL OILS

Their former company tried to take them to court and sue them. They supposedly also had a negative review campaign going (according to many sources but none confirmed). Yet this company has not only survived but is thriving.

Present worldwide and boasting over 1 billion dollars in sales annually, they even own a nonprofit foundation that does wonderful work helping people all over the world.

Every single negative issue brought against them has not only been disproved but they keep on growing at an astounding rate.

The company has their own purity program in place to ensure the purity of their oils and products. Besides, the quality and purity of their products have withstood numerous scientific studies and analysis.

We can’t but give this company a big thumbs up and highly recommend them to any and all interested in making money working a legitimate MLM program!

DUBLI

If there is a company that does deliver to its distributors and customers, it is Dubli. It is true they have some kinks in their payouts at times but they do make them right. We like that they claim they are improving on the system every day.

We like the Dubli MLM program and how it is set up. The cashback is a very good way to keep the cash flowing from two sources.

This could be a good way to just save money shopping from their website right up to making a full-time income. If there is anything that would hold anyone back it would be themselves. This is because the company is set up for success.

We give them a thumbs up and recommend them for those who want to give a multi-level marketing program a try. They are also indicated not only for those who love to shop but also for the person who just wants to save money shopping!

DXN Reviews

Let’s confess that we fell in love with this company from the start.

This is because they have every element we look for in a successful multi-level marketing company. They are established and have a great reputation. They put their products first and take care of their workers.

After checking out all of the DXN reviews online we couldn’t find a reason to not give this company a huge thumbs up. We therefore recommend this company to anyone who is willing to work hard to make this work.

All of the tools and training needed to make this work are provided. And best of all, it is free to join!

One thing to note is: with a large number of distributors and the availability of DXN products on Amazon, to be successful in this program you will need to put the necessary time in and really understand what you are selling.

ENERSOURCE INTERNATIONAL

Most of the many reviews posted about this program all over the internet are all positive.

This is always a good sign. When people are not satisfied with a program, they will surely be quick to post a negative review about it. So what we’re seeing here is encouraging.

After taking a look at everything offered with this program, we can say that this company does look legit. It is therefore a good place to make some money by working their plan.

Here are other reasons they have:

  • All the tools to help their members make money

· A product that is respected in the industry and works, and

  • A proven track record with many positive reviews and their products are sold on Amazon, a good sign of their quality.

We give this program a thumbs up and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who wants to get into the multi-level marketing business for an affordable amount of investment capital.

 

FOREVER LIVING

While there are a few red flag concerns with legal issues, with the biggest one being high levels of lead in their products, the company seems to be sound and the potential to make money is still intact.

A person sold on their products could go far with Forever Living as an aggressive distributor. No doubt it would take huge commitment levels and someone who is very focused to succeed.

That being said we have to give it a thumbs up but with a bit of advice. There are many other MLM companies available that a person can make a living at that depend much less work without the legal issues hanging over the program. But in our opinion, they are not a scam and they are a legit investment.

GANO EXCEL INTERNATIONAL

We are very happy to give this company, its products, and its compensation plan a big thumbs up!

We like everything about Gano Excel International. So we highly recommend them as a very viable way to make money working their multi-level marketing program.

They are a good investment and very much for real!

We are happy to report this one as a winner and we enjoy when we can bring you a viable way to make money online!

GNLD

Sincerely we are not excited about the sugar and protein levels of their products, but we are happy with the overall company. We also like how they run their business.

The business model and the support for their promoters are above and beyond that offered by many of their competitors. And we feel they really do care about their workers and will go the distance for them.

We are assured that GNLD (NeoLife) is a viable option for making money through their multi-level marketing program, because of that support. So we give them a big thumbs up.

Thanks for checking out our GNLD International review. We hope we have answered any questions you may have about this company and their products.

HERBALIFE

After reading countless reviews from many different sources we are obliged to give this company a thumbs up.

True, the lawsuits filed against them are a bit disturbing. But the company’s response has been quick and upfront. And for the most part most of the suits have been dismissed.

Surely when you run a company as large as Herbalife, you are bound to have some detractors. But on our side we have not found anything that would keep us from exploring this MLM opportunity.

The diet programs this company offers have been rated extremely high and effective. And it is refreshing to find so many reviews written by people who have had success with one product or the other!

IMMUNOTECH

We started this review with the same old claims about scientifically-backed wonder products. And we thought we would find the same old story as we have with most companies that make these claims.

Were we wrong on this one!

Immunotech seem to be everything they say they are. In addition, they have many good reviews on the web that back their products and their multi-level marketing program.

Our thinking is that they are a good fit for the marketer who wants to make some money and is good at recruiting people. The same goes for those who just want to save money using their products. So we give them a thumbs up.

JEWELS BY PARK LANE

We feel this company is just what a multi-level marketing company should be all about! That is, an outstanding company with a great product and a superb business model.

All this leads to a huge thumbs up from our end!

If you are looking to work with a company that cares about you and your success and gives you everything you will ever need to achieve that success, this is it!

Really, you will get to sell the best quality products available and work for people who really care!

These people go out of their way to make sure their sellers are taken care of and we really like this refreshing action as most companies are just out for the buck!

KANNAWAY

We like what we see with this company and are also highly impressed with the management and their incentive program.

What are also striking are the signup costs and the availability of training. We were also won over by the idea of having a product that is in demand worldwide.

We do not like the pricing in the USA. But we know the market is worldwide for any ambassador working their multi-level marketing program. So direct sales can come from anywhere the company is.

Our decision is to give this company a huge thumbs up and recommend it to anyone who wants to start their own MLM business with a solid company behind them!

LEGALSHIELD

We feel their business plan is average and set up like most popular multi-level marketing plans. We also like the fact the commissions are paid.

The products and the training program are both acceptable.

However we wish there were fewer restrictions on the legal help Legalshield is selling. Because that is what matters when working in an MLM program.

This company gets a thumbs up from us. And we think both the beginners and the veterans of multi-level marketing experience can have a go with this company and make money.

We hope out this helps you in choosing a good MLM company to invest in.

LR HEALTH & BEAUTY SYSTEMS

This is one of the finer multi-level marketing companies out there. There is no doubt that we are very excited about what we have found about them.

LR Health and Beauty Systems are the real deal as far as MLM companies go.

They put their products first. They also put their emphasis on their members by setting them up for success.

This is a company that knows that if their members are successful, they will also be successful. And that is priceless in an MLM company.

We give them a huge thumbs up and highly recommend working with this company, both for beginners and for well-established MLM marketers!

MARY KAY

This company has a proven track record. They offer an outstanding product line. They also have years of success and seem to be very eco-friendly in their business dealings.

Mary Kay’s incentive plan with the cars program and many other perks they offer make this a very desirable Multi-level marketing investment. And we give it a huge thumbs up!

Remember, when deciding where to invest your time and money in an MLM business, keep in mind how much work is involved. Don’t also forget if you are up to the constant pressure for sales.

We gave those warnings because they are usually the reasons why people drop out. But if you think you have what it takes, this company is a winner for sure.

NATURA

We couldn’t find more information about the business model the direct sales team is using. However we are still very impressed by everything else we found about this company.

But it is worth mentioning that they are eco-friendly and concerned about the environment. They demand that their products be safe and healthy for the users and also for the earth.

At the very least we have to give Natura a thumbs up on their business practices and products. But we are unable to give them a thumbs up on their MLM business model because of the lack of information.

What we will say is that any company as well put together as this one is worth checking out. Therefore we recommend going to their website and seeing if you can find a way to check out how to become a consultant. You must also see for yourself if it is indeed worth pursuing.

NATURALLY PLUS

With this company we feel we have fallen on a very rare company that really cares about every aspect of doing business. Besides, they practice what they preach!

Naturally Plus are honest, hard-working, and very customer- and distributor-minded and offer an outstanding compensation plan.

We give them a huge thumbs up and recommend them to anyone wanting to work for a top-notch multi-level marketing company that really cares.

NATURE’S SUNSHINE

We feel that this company has everything it takes to be a great place for earning in MLM. This is because it enables you to make a good living. Even when you choose to advance up the ladder by being a member and selling their products.

We like their business plan and their reputation. And feel that they really do care about their distributors and customers. Moreover they go out of their way to make it all work together.

We give Nature’s sunshine a big thumbs up and recommend it as a legitimate multi-level marketing program!

NEFFUL

This company has been around like forever and a day. It enjoys a very well established reputation of producing quality products and treating their marketers with respect and fairness.

They have a unique product sold exclusively by their distributors and they put the emphasis not on recruitment but sales.

All winning signs which make is give them a big thumbs up. We feel both the beginners and the experienced multi-level marketing workers would do well with this company.

NHT GLOBAL

This is a legit company that has good quality products. And we like it that they put their emphasis on retail sales instead of recruiting.

However, we do not admire the fact that their products are all over Amazon and similar websites. This could affect sales.

For the fact that earning good money with this company would take some serious experience, this is not for the beginner. That is, unless you are up for a serious challenge. If you feel you are up to it, then certainly go for it!

We give it a thumbs up but there are many better multi-level programs available that have a much easier business model to understand.

We still believe you can make money with this company if you know what you are doing and are driven for success.

OPTAVIA

Our opinion here is that this is a good company with a great reputation and a really effective business plan.

We are however a bit concerned by the high prices of their products. But considering all that is included in their meal plans as far as products, support, and coaching, it is not a big concern. They seem to be selling well.

We like the training offered and the many different ways of making money they offer. So we give them a thumbs up for both the beginners and the veteran multi-level marketing marketers.

ORIFLAME COSMETICS

We like this company because they have everything necessary to qualify as a multi-level business which works.

Their pay structure is awesome and the company really cares about both its products and its workers.

They have a strong guarantee policy and do in-house testing on all of their products to make sure they are natural.

Happily we give this company a big thumbs up. So we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone wanting to try out their MLM plan.

PAMPERED CHEF

We really adore this old school company and feel it has a proven track record. We also believe it offers great products for sale through a proven business model.

While this multi-level marketing program is not going to be for everyone, people who love to cook, and understand the workings of a kitchen and all of its components will find this company a nice fit.

The compensation plan is what you would expect: solid. So we have to give them a big thumbs up. This means that we recommend it for those who meet the qualifications mentioned above.

We do not really mind the warm selling aspect of the program that much. That is a personal thing and many people actually do like this way of getting started.

PARTYLITE

We really like this company as well as its product selections.

They are made in house, sold exclusively through their distributors, reasonably priced and safe.

Partylife put the emphasis on their products and the sales over recruitment of new distributors. And this shows them as a bona fide multi-level marketing company that puts its distributors first.

We give them a big thumbs up and recommend them to anybody who likes having parties and making money. But we cannot stress enough, you really have to like to throw home parties. It is really that important to understand in order to really excel in this company.

PLEXUS WORLDWIDE

All in all we are happy with this company.

We do not like the binary part of the business model, but they do make up for it in several areas. Some of them are exclusive product availability, multiple different discounts and levels of commissions, and a large overall commission percentage.

We also appreciate that the company provides its ambassadors their own personal quality website for a 35.00 fee a year. This is about as inexpensive as could be hoped for.

We are giving Plexus a thumbs up and we would recommend it for both the beginner and the expert multi-level marketers.

PRIMERICA

Primerica is a very well-established company with a proven track record and a proven sales method for their reps.

It is really a multi-level marketing program for those who like doing warm selling. It is also indicated for those who love the financial niche and can excel in this type of setting.

If this person is you, then our big thumbs up of this program is for you. So we encourage you to get fot it!

But if you are an average marketer looking for a reliable way to make money without the pressure of selling to your friends, our advice is to keep on searching. There are many other programs to choose from.

QNET

We are very surprised by what we found out about this company.

Their focus on products, the incredible reputation they have and a very generous business model make them a very desirable place to work.

We are concerned however by the binary business model. This could be a big setback. But if you work it very carefully good commissions could be yours. However it is never a good sign when the very first commission you get is for recruiting people instead of from sales.

We are not only going to give them a hesitant thumbs up but also recommend them with conditions.

Anyone who may want to make money working a good multi-level marketing program can do so with this one.

But be warned.

It will take a serious commitment on your part to keeping both legs working in their business model.

SCENTSY

Even with the small success numbers, for the right person (and we know there are many of you out there) this is a great business to get involved with!

If you can sell one-on-one in a party setting, like to be a people person and be creative in your selling and recruiting, you sure can make a good living with this company.

The number of tools and support you need are available. There is also the product to go along with the solid company. You also get the solid backing of Scentsy for both the products and the distributors. And you can enjoy exclusivity in the marketing of the product!

As you see, you really have all the ingredients to be a success!

We give this a big thumbs up and encourage people with the right kind of skills to jump on the bandwagon and get started!

 

SHAKLEE

If you ask us, we have a really good feeling about this company. This is rightfully so in view of the number of years they have been in business coupled with the quality of their products.

We also like their business plan and the way they put the quality and sales of their products above everything else.

That, in our opinion, is a good sign of a successful multi-level marketing company. Sure!

We are happy to give Shaklee a thumbs up and recommend them for both the beginners and the veterans of MLM marketing.

SOUTHWESTERN ADVANTAGE

It seems like an enormous commitment for unguaranteed monies. And that is what it really is. Yet many swear by the life lessons learned and make huge profits working this program.

Independent contractors who show leadership and success in their sales may go on to become a sales team leader for the following summer season.

This puts them into the MLM program with commissions on the contractors in their group’s sales. They likewise get other perks.

Some very successful people have been independent contractors for Southwestern Advantage. Can you imagine that they include federal judges, senators, governors, and even a federal prosecutor?

That’s why Southwestern Advantage is not your everyday MLM company for sure.

If you are sold on warm sales to family, friends and strangers, and if door-to-door selling is your cup of tea, and if you do not mind working your tail off, then this just might be what you have been waiting for to take you into the world of direct selling.

There is the possibility of going on to become manager. This thrusts you into the multi-level marketing division of their business plan. Mind you, the company is as solid as they get.

The positive sides of this company definitely outweigh the negative ones.

So we give Southwest Advantage a big thumbs up!

STELLA AND DOT JEWELRY

The news that the company is losing money is not reassuring at all. That could demand a big thumbs down. But we didn’t do that.

The only proof we could find that this is happening is on former distributors that have worked in that area.

They have posted this information and we cannot verify it through the company. This could possibly be a competitor’s effort to create negative reviews for the company. We have seen this happen to other companies.

According to all the reports that we have read the company is strong. And it is still growing and in very good financial health.

Another reason to be alarmed for some is the poor BB rating. But there can be many reasons for this happening to good companies. So we cannot base our decision on this rating alone.

We will give therefore Stella and Dot Jewelry a thumbs up on the information we could find and from all reports. This looks like a great option for both beginners and veterans of the multi-level marketing niche.

SUNHOPE

We wish we could have found more on this company but what did make do with what we could find about them.

Unfortunately that we could not get a better look at their business model too. Moreover we had major problems getting their text to translate into English. So we really cannot say either way what we think about that part of the company.

So we found ourselves in a dilemma.

We could not give them a thumbs up due to a lack of available information. On the other hand, we also cannot give them a thumbs down simply because of their outstanding reputation both as a multi-level marketing business and as having outstanding and well-respected products.

Curiously we will have to leave this one in the hands of you, our readers to determine if this company is a viable MLM investment. Sorry, we couldn’t be of more help in your decision due to circumstances beyond our control.

TEAM NATIONAL

Team National generally has a good reputation and has also been around a very long time. Yet, we feel it would take a real pro who knows how to do hard selling to make it working as their distributor.

Sure, they are a legit company and do have a good business plan. But we don’t like a few things. One is the high cost of the memberships. The other is that with a little shopping most of their items offered on their website at a discounted price can be found cheaper.

We will give them a thumbs up. But with a warning that this is not for the beginner. This, unless they want to really apply themselves and tackle learning how to hard sell high priced memberships.

TOTAL LIFE CHANGES

We feel that this company is a good fit for experienced marketers who can work with people in the weight loss niche. They must also be very good at recruiting and working with new distributors.

The company is geared in every area towards weight loss and all of their products have some connection to this. So it is a no brainer that a person that is experienced in this area is going to have a hand up on success here.

We give Total Life Changes a thumbs up and recommend them for those who know how to work this kind of niche and who are also good at recruitment. We also feel there is a good potential here to make considerable money if the program is worked correctly.

TUPPERWARE

This company is a bit different than your average multi-level marketing companies. Starting out, you will be doing a ton of face to face work with your potential customer base. And that in a way is refreshing and could be a lot of fun if you are an outgoing type of person who likes to host things.

The company has been around forever and have a proven track record and product line. So we must give this business opportunity a thumbs up. But it is with a bit of a hesitation.

This comes from the fact that it will take a certain flair for hosting people in your home. That takes special kinds of people.

If you are one of those people then this may give this place a shot and invest in your future. The investment levels are affordable. And even if it does not work out you are still coming out ahead simply because of the products supplied with your kit!

VESTIGE MARKETING

We think that this company is an excellent choice for both the beginning and the experienced multi-level marketing individuals. Not only are they growing fast but also their business model is outstanding.

Vestige Marketing care about their image, their workers and their distributors. No wonder they are on their way to worldwide success in their niche.

Giving them a big thumbs up, we recommend getting on the bandwagon and get to work and grow along with the company. This is because they will be seeing huge success in the very near future. This is the way to go for us on this one!

 

YANBAL

We like what we found on this company. And we believe they have a well-established track record in the multi-level marketing niche.

Their numbers are a bit down from past years. But they are introducing a jewelry line and expanding into the USA.

These are good signs they are investing in their future and consequently in that of their distributors. This is because they are set up for success through these distributors. Above all, they treat them well.

We give Yanbal a thumbs up. Consequently we recommend them to anyone who likes giving parties, meeting new people and giving advice on how to use these products.

YOFOTO

We really love the reputation and the commitment of this company to both its workers and customers.

They are well-known for being very community-minded and support many great causes around the world. Yofoto have a well-respected charity branch and supply food to the FDA and APAC. The company is currently working on the development and implementation of stem cell research and treatments.

Yofoto put their workers first and that merits every good thing we could say about them!

We give this company a huge thumbs up. Which means that we recommend them to anyone who is career-minded and wants to check out a place that claims you will be treated with the respect you deserve and given all the tools for success.

YOUNG LIVING

We fell in love with this company, the compensation plan, and the products.

We are not however interested in the emphasis placed on building your downline over the sale of their products.

This puts a bit of a downer on MLM companies. It is also a formula for failure by its distributors. And this shows in the measly percentages of Young Living distributors not making their monthly minimums.

All that being said, you can make money with this company if you are good at building downlines. As proof, they have million-dollar distributors.

Let us repeat. This program is not for everyone. It is right for people who have the capacity in downline building and in recruiting. Such people can really make a living working this company’s compensation program.

Because of this, we have to give it a thumbs up. But we recommend it only to those who understand the concept and want to move ahead with them.

YOUNGEVITY

We have to say that this company has it all covered as far as multi-level marketing companies go.

Youngevity could be a good fit for you for two reasons.

One, if you like to sell products that are quality driven and priced well.

And also if you like to recruit people on a daily basis. Because that is what it takes to be successful in this type of business.

We give them a big thumbs up and this time recommend them for the starter and the experienced MLM marketer alike.

YOUNIQUE

This company passes all the requirements of a good MLM company.

They are a time tested company with a good reputation. Offering quality products, they stand behind them 100 percent.

Youngevity has a strong business model that offers both generous commissions on the sales of their products first, then commissions on recruiting others second.

We however have to decry the fact that they have their products available all over the internet. Despite that, this is still a moneymaker and people should be able to build their own customer base in a short period of time.

For that reason, we give Youique a thumbs up and recommend them as one of the safe multi-level marketing companies out there to join for business.

 

ZURVITA

Let’s start straightaway by saying that we really like this company. We also love their business model. We furthermore applaud the fact that their products are in demand and almost sell themselves.

However, to make real money as a consultant with them, you will need to be experienced and know how to work the multi-level marketing system to your advantage.

Is that you?

Then this is the place you should be at. And we give them a thumbs up under those conditions.

 

We are happy to report that our number one recommendation for building a successful affiliate marketing business is now ready to get you started today for free!

  1. In general, MLM companies have a bad reputation as pyramid schemes. You do a great job pointing out how this is not the case. I know people who have made genuine careers out of Mary Kay. Also, those who automatically disparage these companies would do well to keep in mind that Tupperware is one of the most trusted food storage brands in the world – in fact, a lot of us use the term Tupperware as a synonym for “food container.” And yeah, it’s an MLM company.

    And as for the pyramid structure – every corporation, franchise, etc., out there exists in a pyramid like shape with high earners on the top and lower earners on the bottom. So it’s really not all that different from any other business when you think about it. 

    Your criteria for finding a good MLM company are basically the same criteria a person should use when evaluating any potential investment or employment opportunity: is it a good product, made by decent people with reasonable expectations in a good work environment, that meets a need? Will it bring you a good return on your investment if you put in the work? These are the things we should keep in mind in any investment of time or money. Thanks for the reminder, and the thorough analysis of these companies.

    • Hi Shanna,

      Call a spade a spade. That’s why I pointed out these companies are not pyramid schemes. Luckily you know people who have made it big with Mary Kay. You also did very well by making us know that Tupperware is not only a trusted brand but also a synonym for “food container.”

      Yeah, many people don’t know that corporations, franchises, etc., etc. are pyramids in structure. Even the church, the government, the society and many other human groupings are pyramids. There’s always a few at the top enjoying all the benefits and a great number at the bottom getting the crumbs. 

      I agree with you that my criteria for finding a good MLM company are basically the same everywhere. In fact, they’re not specific to MLM. Thanks for your very detailed and comment. I’m sure my readers will find it valuable.

  2. This is a lot of valuable information. The fact that some people have done well in a MLM arrangement means that success is possible. I have been in and out of a few of these listed here and have heard about others. Theoretically, the model works and if you are able to follow the rules, you should make a lot of money. In all cases I started out with lots of energy and hopes but my activities fell by the wayside and soon I was out because I could not find enough new people to recruit. I feel that the best thing to do is to work with a plan that has products you are personally interested in in the long term. For me that would be health products. I am thinking of trying again soon. thanks for the rollout of information

    • Hi JJ,

      I’m glad that you found this article full of information. Yes, it’s possible to succeed in a MLM. I’m glad you know about the companies listed here. Sure, you have to work the plan to see it work for you. Your experience with the companies are the same as for others who joined MLMs. Their high hopes fizzle out sooner or later. Obviously, you’re sure to go far if the products interest you a lot. I hope you will try again soon. Thanks for your comment.

      Yes, many people have been duped by unscrupulous MLM companies. So much so that many swear never to have anything to do with them ever again. But we know there’re good MLMs out there and that it would be a pity if we don’t point out these opportunities to people. Sure, with these people will always be on the right track. Thank you.
