Herbalife is often called a pyramid scheme, with good reason. Distributors purchase products from the person that recruited them, while earning commissions from sales and from the people that they recruit. For the majority of people, this system results in a substantial loss of money, and the only real way to earn money is to be unethical and misleading. Even then, actually earning money is far from guaranteed.
Network Marketing Lists & Reviews
I'm not a fan of multi-level marketing, so if you read these articles and reviews, keep that in mind. That being said, there are people out there that generate tons of money in their multi-level marketing business. How do they do it? They generate leads with a website.
You absolutely need a website to brand yourself. If you're going to last in this business, you need to own your business and not just be a sales rep. I've heard way too many horror stories of people getting the rug pulled from under them because the company gets sued and goes under or they get banned for violating the terms of service (which nobody reads anyway).
If you really want to rock the world of online marketing, do a mix of network marketing and affiliate marketing side by side. Get paid from multiple companies and diversify your earnings for income stability.
The concept behind Pure Romance makes some sense to me and I can see there being some demand for the products and the parties. However, even with that, this is not something that you could turn into a long-term successful business. At the end of the day, the company uses a similar structure to other MLMs, one that places strong emphasis on recruitment and team building. That simply isn’t an effective way to make money.
As programs go, Avon is a very well-known program, and there are many Avon reps out there who try to use Avon as a way to make money. There are many advantages of Avon, but as a money making tool alone, it is unlikely to be effective for most people. The problem with Avon is that you are responsible for getting your own customers through networking.
Many MLMs don’t hang around all that long, but Mary Kay is an exception to that general rule. Don’t let its long history fool you though, as the company is still similar to other MLMs in many ways. Certainly, it has a complex commission scheme that heavily relies on recruiting others and growing your downline.
Chalky & Company could work well for people who are already focused on crafts and want to make the process easier for others. There are some clear advantages to the company too. But, even so, it wouldn’t suit everyone as an income opportunity.
