The —10 season saw the Hawks improve further, winning 53 games, their first win season since — Thats the question you gotta ask yourself. Jeunesse Another winning product line here. To this day I have never heard from this guy and reached out to him once on Facebook and got nothing!!!
I am also with doterra and I never in my life thought I would do something like this. The reason I started was because of health issues that led me to the oils. I have been an RN for 23 years and I feel more free and excited to share about health than ever. If you are going into something to get rich quick, I think that is the wrong attitude.
I think most of my fellow doterra wellness advocates, have come to the same realization as me. I believe most of us started out trying to help ourselves and our families. I left my nursing job of 17 years in Feb, not because I am making enough money to replace my past income, but because I truly love helping others and I love the company and what it stands for.
Maybe I am wrong to think that way. Thank you again for your information and your viewpoint. I think you missed one: I am an independent agent of Plexus Worldwide. We sell all natural health and weight loss supplements, including our signature product, Plexus Slim aka The Pink Drink. Plexus Worlwide is ranked by Inc. And at a consumer friendly price point. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like more info.
Sounds like you went from telling us what it was to slyly throwing in a pitch. But its those exact tactics that make the industry distasteful. I originally got into network marketing because I was persuaded by my sponsor and convinced it was the only way to get what I want in life. After bothering old friends and family unsuccessfully I got out. I learned seo and blogging, failed at that. But first ask, how many people can you personally find who have replaced their income at such n such a company?
Thanks for all the research, it was fun to read. So at what monthly income will you feel that you have made it? As my Dad always told me, the journey is the destination. Thats the most important part of being in business for me. Hi Mr Page, please, when you have a chance, check out this new mlm where the product is basically your own savings account accruing daily interest from profits made in the google-type advertising business.
My website link will get you in for free to look around. Do you not consider us to be a mlm or do you think that we are that bad? I just posted about the same thing sorry I missed this one. But finally found one that works for me and everyone below me. Though I am all fired up and have a decent amount of knowledge about the industry I am confused which company to join as I reside in India?
Maybe you could help suggesting? Any wise advise would be really life changing and helpful!! Thanks for this article! Maybe do a comparison in your next article?? It is all built on big bloggers. The company itself has great customer service, but try to reach compliance or tell them that your uplines are making fake accounts or ordering off multiple people in the downline just to ensure they make bonuses and NO ONE listens.
Hi Jeremy, Thank you for this article! I just wanted to use the product. I love working for this company!! Hands down its the best!! Great article and I hope you choose to delve deeper into this with future blogs.
I was laid off from my corporate VP job when I turned Some team members make more, some less. MLM has such a bad rep and with all things, only the negatives come to light. Thank you for sharing objectively. I agree with Jeannie. I love how everyone I have interacted with in my Upline are so driven by a purpose much bigger than amassing wealth!
We see published compensation plans of MLM companies and I guess the commissions and discounts created this impression of lucrative margins of the products, and hence overpriced. But comparing to an equivalent product sold on retail front, there are monies spent on national advertising, branding campaigns, celebrity endorsements, other costs in supply chain, say supermarket stocking cost which I thought might be no less than the MLM commission.
If that being the case, how is an MLM product overpriced an equivalent sold on shelves? Have you got any statistics on that? As a business owner and entrepreneur, there is often a lot of noise from many sources about what is the best way to grow and be of importance. One of the things I have learned and continue to learn is that we must really love what we do, believe in our offering, whether is it a product or service, and listen closely to our gut instincts.
A business coach of mine once said being a prism is beautiful, but it is scattered light, focus on what you love. Another important thing to know for yourself , is that there are different learning styles. If you choose to join any company, MLM or otherwise, be clear with yourself how you best learn and thrive.
Getting swept up in the cheering may feel good, and it may keep you motivated on some level, however, be clear on how do you retain knowledge and use it. If a company has a one size fits all approach, be very careful that you do not get swept away.
Thank you again for sharing this information. It has helped me have another look at my goals and how to continue focusing on what I love to do. Excellent read, and posts! I just wanted to raise awareness in what they could do and help with for individuals and families, as they did me and mine. In fact, many of my friends are now distributors not under me. Not at all, in my book. More power to them! What about Watkins Products. Our company has been in business almost years. The First Direct selling company.
I have been with them for 25 years and would never trade them for anything else. I see Melaleuca on here. I see that as both good and bad. They are an awesome company with a great compensation plan. However, they are not an MLM. They are not even listed with the federal agency that oversees those companies. They are a Consumer Direct Marketing company. How does that differ? The idea is that the product goes to the consumer only.
Can you shed any light on why you think they are an MLM? Some other direct sales companies are in there as well. I started with Melaleuca 10 years ago. I would continue to purchase even if I never got paid a cent from them. I just love the quality of the products. They are not MLM!! Have you bothered to take a look at the compensation plan??? We thought it was until we looked closer. Opening Online Shopping Accounts! In just 30 years, Melaleuca has grown from a little startup in rural Idaho to a billion-dollar enterprise doing business in 19 countries around the globe.
It has become one of the largest catalog and online wellness retailers in North America. And it is the largest manufacturer of consumer packaged goods in the Northwest. Today, more than a million customers shop with Melaleuca every month. The company contracts with independent marketing executives who refer customers to Melaleuca that purchase its various lines of nutritional, pharmaceutical, personal care, household cleaning, and pet care products.
They also offer travel, phone and credit card services. Customers receive discounts if they order a minimum monthly product supply, but are not required to maintain an inventory of products. OK here is the difference Steve. If you quit any of these MLM companies for a whole year, Continue buying product but help no one set up a shopping account, even 2 years, will you continue to get paid by the company? So Steve, as a Director with Melaleuca you helped 8 people total set up a shopping account.
There is no Direct or multilevel sales in that, and if they shop you earn commission on their shopping. You will not know what they shop for and thats ok cause its private. Oh and yes, I took over a year off of inviting people to see what Melaleuca was, and still received my residual check every single month. It is against company policy to sell Melaleuca products. I only came on here to see who was on the list. I do agree with the findings though.
Great feed thanks Jeremy. I realized my email address was incorrect. Bonnie, you make a decent point, but these rankings are sincere. Alotta people dig the style. Why do you think Juice Plus did not make the list for top MLM companies when they have been around for over 20 years with rock solid products? What made the decision to not include them?
You come across as bias. You also incorrectly state that YL set the standard for quality, while they may have been the first legit EO Co. The foundation builds wells, schools, provides personal care products as well as many other things. Yes, people with biases tend to publicize information that says the product they secretly dislike outranks one they actually do like.
Do you realize how incredibly ignorant that sounds? That is what you just took 30 lines to say…. There is a mark up on every product in the world… Our products actually work which is why those endorsers you mentioned turn down high level incomes with other companies to endorse us for a stipend of products per month.
Advocare has numerous people making a great profit and even more just enjoying a product they would pay double what they do for to feel the way they do.
Success rate isnt low my friend… Its just the quit rate is through the roof. Thanks for all the research and blessings! When you peddle and become a disciple of someone elses product and dream, are you really an entrepreneur though? I found your article interesting. My wife and I have been involved with AdvoCare since November Even if I never make another dime in AdvoCare, I will continue to use the products because they have worked and continue to work for us.
What I find interesting is the statistic that the majority — What is the context of that statistic? That would mean A: I believe that C is the right answer.
I do agree there are flaws in the MLM industry just as there are flaws in every industry. However, I believe that the MLM industry has made huge improvements in recent years and we do have a better way. People are the variable. When you have a great product, a passion and purpose that drives you everyday, are teachable and coachable, and love others as much as you love yourself, you can be successful in this business.
Through the process of investing in your own personal development and learning to serve others, you are able to lead others to do the same. I look forward to reading more from you in the near future. Great breakdown of the top companies. Even cooler to realize my wife and I are building 2 in the top 7!
Hey Jeremy, you rock and an inspiration to all the dry bloggers out there who sound the same! Jeremy, Love your passion for this industry. I agree with most of what you shared here.
You are right in that most MLM have monthly dues and have high entry fees to be distributors or consultants.
You are also right in that most MLM companies focus on recruitment and not product sales. Product loading is prohibited. Not only that consultants can will their business down 6 generations, and the Mercedes incentive is for a purchase, not a lease.
We do look to grow our network, but we emphasize this takes hard work and is not a get rich quick scheme. While you hit the nail on the head with most MLM businesses, there are MLM businesses like Arbonne who are a cut above the rest and who are in the habit of not putting pressure on anyone attending to either purchase or join as a consultant.
We only want the best in our network and we have thousands of examples of very successful men and woman to show for it. I am very surprised that Plexus Worldwide did not make your list. I really did enjoy the article as I am a multi MLM participant.
Thoroughly enjoyed reading your mlm breakdowns and the comments, thank you Jeremy. Had a successful mlm business but had to make a decision to give it up or have a breakdown due to ongoing upline bullying so at a big crossroads at the minute. Thanks again Jeremy x. The secret is to listen to the right people. Here is your more sustainable, more lucrative alternative.
I enjoyed this post and spent too many hours reading all your other posts and watching your videos. You have some excellent real life experiences to share and glad I found this blog. Do you think blogging would work with this type MLM? I have only had success using Instagram and Facebook. My wife joined to get a discount on wraps and now this insane looking chart pays the bills.
I want to take it further just keep searching for a good way to do so. Maybe blogging is the answer? Blogging would be the only way I rock an MLM. However, I still think your blogging could be used in a better and more lucrative way. Hi Jeremy, I have just one question. If you really believe what you are saying about MLM, why would you even list any MLM companies in your article, then rank them?
Why not just soley promote what you are doing? And two, because it allows my audience to be significant. Great article with non-biased perspective and discussion. Would you provide your thoughts, synopsis, and ranking of Team National? There was a lot of hype but I made enough money to achieve several of my more modest financial goals.
I went on to use some of what I learned to make extra money in various ventures and eventually started a small business out of my home.
The business grew until mainstream retailers began offering the same product I was selling at comparable prices. The MLM as a learning tool has some value as long as the product is decent.
I am selective about what I spend my time and effort on. They say their social retailing model is new and unique to them. If 18,, Americans consider MLM their careers, yet only 0.
I was part of team Tupperware decades ago because I wanted to buy Tupperware for my home for less. I live in rural America where so many fall to MLMs attempting to climb out of paycheck to paycheck living very few good jobs like the saved into a baptismal pool. MLMs are just not thriving here. I see MLM victims everywhere. This is so true! I see this everyday as my Facebook feed changes from an influx of Lularoe to Rodan and Fields now to Lipsense.
You can only recruit so many people under you in a small town and then who is left for you to sell to. But they keep on trucking, going from one MLM to another hoping that this is the one that makes them tons of moolah. With social media, you can recruit worldwide. I still see lots of the older companies still ranking and banking. I was actually suprised u put EN up there in top three in the mlm world. EN has brought lots to the table but there are some huge shakers out there. I give them props for being so internet-centric and for going against the prospecting, 3-way calls and approaching family and friends, though.
I truly enjoyed reading an open minded and fair opinion on mlm. I currently do mlm part time with an mlm which has so far been working wonderfully. I am on the cusp of relieving myself from my 9 — 5. I agree with most of what you posted. They apply the incorrect philosophy and it becomes a recipe for disaster.
But with correct leadership that problem could be averted. That is precisely why I love my company. It has the best leadership in my opinion and they properly train their agents. The pros are definitely there. The odds of clearing 6 figures in mlm with the same work effort as my regular job are definitely higher. I have a product that I truly believe in.
