While Rodan + Fields looks good at first glance, the company is majorly hampered by controversial products, which many people find to be ineffective and may even make acne worse in some cases. The products alone are a reason not to get involved with this company and, at the same time, the commission plan isn’t very appealing either.

Stampin’ Up does have the advantage of offering pretty neat products. Those products would probably be relevant to people with a passion for crafts and might even be enough to get people excited. Despite this, I simply don’t see the potential for long-term success with the company, especially as people often don’t have the time they need to craft, regardless of their passion. At the same time, the MLM model places a huge emphasis on recruitment and on your team, which makes the money earning process that much more complex.
In many ways, Kyäni is just like dozens of other MLMs. In terms of products, the company has a fairly small selection of nutritional items but they all tend to be overpriced and offer few advantages over standard supplements. At the same time, the compensation plan is nothing to get excited about and has a strong focus on recruitment. Coupled with the fact that the company has been around a while, these aspects suggest that making money with the company would be much more difficult than the company itself implies.
If you’re passionate about candles and wax melts, PartyLite might seem like a good choice. Yet, the company suffers from many of the standard failings of an MLM, including a strong emphasis on recruitment and team management. At the same time, the products themselves are on the pricey side and some customers aren’t happy with how they burn. All of this means that you could earn money with the company but most members probably won’t.
Most of the time, MLMs tend to follow an almost identical model, so I was surprised to find that ARIIX does have a bit of a different approach. In theory, their commission model would allow people to earn more money but that’s only the case if you developed a decent team and made it into the higher tiers of the organization. So, despite the interesting model, ARIIX still suffers from the standard issues of an MLM and most members probably wouldn’t be successful.
