They are a unique MLM company as they sell memberships to their shopping clubs. They also offer in house networking which is not a common set up for an MLM company.

We are interested in everything about Team National. So we will be looking at the company and the products. We are also very interested in their business model.

As always we give all the pros and cons of investing in this business. And then we cap the review off with our own personal views of what we think about them.

So, let’s get started on finding out all about the company.

The company

Founded in 1997 by Dick Loehr in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, they are now run by Angela Loehr Chrysler, the daughter to Dick.

20 years in the MLM niche has brought quite a bit of credibility to the company. They are even members of The US Chamber of Commerce. Dun and Bradstreet (D&B) and Direct Selling Association (DSA).

Getting information about this company was a challenge. Because the company website does not give you much to work with unless you actually sign up. So we had to dig deep into Google for the information we have on them.

 

The products

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

We know they sell memberships to their shopping club and that is their main business. But hidden in their shopping club are all kinds of products like insurance, jewelry, vehicles, financial services and on and on.

We believe these products are not part of the multi-level marketing plan but rather side investments the company has. So we will just focus on the membership business model as far as the product goes.

 

The business model

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 boast 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.

To summarize, you can earn points and commissions on membership sales, on your downline membership sales, plus many different levels of bonus commissions. 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.

 

The pros

  • Well-established company
  • Great commissions
  • Multi-level business plan
  • A very large line of discounted products through their membership

The cons

  • High priced memberships
  • Lack of information on the company website
  • Hard selling
  • Many online complaints of distributors not making money
  • Many customer complaints

Our view

While Team National has a good reputation overall and they have been around a very long time, we feel this company would take a real pro who knows how to do hard selling to make it working as a distributor.

They are a legit company and they do have a good business plan. But with the high cost of the memberships coupled with the fact 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.

We hope our Team National review helps you in your quest for a multi-level marketing company to invest in. And be sure to check out our many other reviews posted under our reviews tab above.

  1. Thanks a lot for summarizing this amazing review about Team National and explanation given. Between MLM programs and affiliate marketing i can say that i prefer affiliate marketing. I really appreciate that your number 1 recommendation is Wealthy Affiliate. Here i learned how to become a successful entrepreneur and have my own business. For all the people who want to make money online i recommend this platform. If you don’t mind, i will share this article of your 1’st recommendation on my Facebook account.

    1. Hello Nimrodngy,

      It was my pleasure writing this review. Like you many people prefer affiliate marketing to MLM programs. I’m happy that you’re already a member of Wealthy Affiliate. Glad that it enabled you to learn how to become a successful entrepreneur and made you own your own business. Thanks also for recommending this program to people who want to make money online. Thanks for your offer to share this article of my recommendation on your Facebook account. I hope it is done and thank you for that.

  2. A call from an acquaintance on your cellphone enthusiastically tells you that he came to a new phenomenal business opportunity and contacted you precisely to say what he is talking about because he thinks you are an entrepreneur and a capable person. Of course, ask yourself what is the matter, which answers that she is in a hurry and doesn’t have time to explain over the phone, but it could take half an hour tomorrow for you. You agree and go with him to a meeting. At the beginning of the conversation, she becomes interested in your life, what she wants to hear from you is what you miss in life, whether it is a lack of free time, a lack of money or something else.

    1. Hello Kozakiv,

      You have aptly described how MLM members recruit others into the programs. I have had similar experiences too but allow me to talk about a recent one.

      A friend came home and gave me an invitation on a piece of paper. The theme was: how to manage your life and live long time. Who wouldn’t be interested in that? The paper said that last year WHO estimated the number of sick people who ignore their condition at 80%. This is due to lack of knowledge on how to live one’s life. Then it went on that an American company (NeoLife) was inviting me to take part in a conference followed by a short training which will enable me know a lot about how to have excellent health and a phenomenal business opportunity. At the meeting they talk about health and wellness and how you can have both and wealth by joining them. Then people who have been successful in the company tell you about their modest lives and health problems which they managed to solve with the help of the opportunity being presented. You join if you’ve never been in this before but you resist if you’ve had a bad experience before with an MLM company. Thanks for your testimony.

  3. Reputation seems to be the best currency for online businesses. It’s a very good thing that team national has that in somewhat abundance. I really do not mind having to learn how to hard sell in other to partake in this. Their pricing appears to be on the high side but so is their commissions. Thanks for sharing, I believe this is truly worth checking out.

    1. Hello Leo,

      Online people buy from those that they trust. A company needs reputation to be trusted. It is in this sense that I agree with you that “reputation seems to be the best currency for online businesses.” Any company that has that in abundance can hope to succeed. And you say that is the case of Team National. Once you do not mind having to learn how to hard sell, then you are on the road to success. If this company’s pricing is on the high side, that’s what helps them pay high commissions too. Thanks too for commenting. I hope you will share this so that others can check it out.

  4. Many thanks to you for sharing such a beautiful article with us and I came to know about something extraordinary through you. I have already worked with Team National and I love their activities and I am included in their MLM program. And this is a wonderful organization and this company helps those involved with the shopping club business, and I hope that after reading your article, many will find out that they are interested in working with this company.

    1. Hello Arzu,

      Many thanks to you too for commenting on this article and I’m tickled that it enabled you to learn about this company. Oh, you are already a Team National member? I’m glad to hear you love their activities. That it seems things are going very well for you there. This is a powerful testimony for others who may be interested in trying Team National. Just as you said for my article, your contribution may make others get interested in working with this company.

  5. Many thanks to you for giving us such a wonderful article .Team National also offers a unique MLM company and in-house networking for selling membership to shopping clubs. I’m very interested in Team National and I’m very interested in their business model. As always I feel all the benefits of investing in this business and it is very credible. I carry jewelry, vehicles, financial services from this shopping club .

    All in all it is a great company for me and I will be joining it soon and sharing my new experiences with you .

    1. Hi Shanta,

      Many thanks to you too for commenting on this article. I’m glad to know that you are highly interested in Team National as well as in their business model. This does not surprise me as they say that a good stuff always sells itself. I hope you reap soon the benefits of investing in this business.

      Please don’t forget to share your experience there with us. No doubt, we look forward to hearing from you soon.

  6. Thanks for sharing your Team National review. This looks like a great MLM business to join considering the fact that they’ve been operating for long now and they’re even at the top amongst the best MLM companies in the world. However, I don’t seem to get good information about them. This would make it difficult to decide if it’s actually a good fit. Moreover, the fees are very high.

    1. Hello there,

      Thanks to you too for commenting on this review. It’s always a pleasure for us to write on great MLM businesses as we look for only the best for our readers to join. Their longevity in business and their enviable place at the top amongst the best MLM companies in the world are a boon to them and their members. You would get more information about them if you Google. I understand about the fees.

  7. This is really a beautiful piece of information on Team National. You’ve really taken the time to do your diligent research before coming up with this. This is truly an enlightenment. Team National is an interesting MLM business because of their large line of discounted products which is gotten from their membership. They’re many benefits associated to their membership. But sadly, they are expensive. If this is the line for anyone, then this might be a good thing.

    1. Hi James,

      Thanks for your appreciation of my piece. Yes, a bit of serious research is necessary to come up with an article like this. I’m really tickled that you found it a true enlightenment. Yes, any business carrying a large line of discounted products is interesting. This is because each buyer can find what they need. It’d have been ideal if people found their prices reasonable. Because a wide range linked to affordable prices bring good business. .

  8. Well, for a company that have stayed for 20 years is no doubt legit. No scam website will last that longer. Either it runs out of business or FTC shut it down. Team National is absolutely great for professionals but I think that it’s not ideal for beginners because of hard selling. I have some friends that are making it on MLM businesses but I must say that they’re all professionals. This company has a great compensation plan and anyone can make money with them.

    1. Hi Leon,

      Yes, 20 years in business is long enough for one to qualify a business as legit. As you said, “No scam website will last that long. Either it runs out of business or FTC will shut it down.” But like every good thing, you would find a downside. And that is the accent placed on hard selling which puts off beginners who can’t handle this kind of marketing. Since you find the selling good for professionals and you have friends that are professionals making it on MLM businesses, why don’t you share this business with them? They will surely appreciate the compensation plan to make money with Team National.
