This company isn't cheap to join: the least expensive kit costs a whopping $499 and goes up to $1000.00 from there. Each starter kit contains everything you need to start your business plus products to familiarize yourself with the line and share with friends and family as you build up your clientele. The compensation plan isn't too simple either and you'll want to fully look it over before committing to the company, but if you're ready to hustle your butt and put your all into marketing Nerium's superior products then there's great potential to earn a steady and comfortable income.
Hmmm, what should I say about this company, well it still seems like they are far from “the finest and most-respectable retail energy provider in America,” I feel this way because it was just a few years ago that they were dealing with a class action lawsuit.  But when you have $1.5 billion in revenue in the bank from your global business, a lawsuit doesn’t really seem to break your stride.

Oh, Arbonne. In the past I have had several friends and acquaintances become Arbonne consultants. Some were successful, some were not. It really came down to the time and energy they were willing (and most importantly, able) to invest in this company. Those with young kids failed. It's time consuming and requires a lot follow up with potential customers.


When you think about making money from home, one of the first things you need to decide is how much you want to make and how much time you have to give it. There’s a big difference between looking a full-time at-home job, running your own business on your own schedule, and doing one-off tasks that pay a little bit here and there. Let’s take a look at some of the things you can do at each of these levels of “commitment.”
So many great ideas!! I didn’t see Pampered Chef or Lia Sophia though. I don’t see either of those, but know people who do. I am a Team Beachbody Independent Coach – I love it. What better way to get into great health and stay that way – healthy and sustainable! The best part is all the people that you get to meet and getting excited for them when they can do things that they couldn’t do before. Personally, I have Multiple Sclerosis and through the Shakeology and workout programs, I have lost 25 pounds and gained the nourishment that my body needed for energy to get me through the day. MS fatigue is horrid, but Shakeology fights it more than my script for fatigue does. Amazing how I feel. I’d love to help others find their personal best – if any one wants to have one on one support! It’s free for support. :) Just join as a member (there is a free option) http://www.lisalesliefitness.com. Or check out my blog – http://www.lisalesliefitnessblog.com Again, thanks for the post!
Beautycounter is a fast growing company that is perfect for someone who is passionate about healthy nontoxic beauty products and safe products for their family. It is an education based company that is striving to make change in the personal care and beauty product industry. Here is the link to my page http://www.beautycounter.com/andreakropf It’s a movement you would be proud to be a part of.
Looking for a unique direct sales opportunity? Look no further than Jamberry Nails. Available in essentially every color and pattern you can imagine, these nail applications will have everyone asking where you got them from. For $99 you receive a starter kit filled with sales tools, a cuticle pusher, files, hair dryer, buggers, scissors, business cards, nail sheets, 3 months of use on a personal website and more.
A new project hitting the list, because it will have a huge following no matter what.  We know that crowds of affiliates from other MLMs will tail over to this company. Why? Well this is a BK Boreyko’s business, the same person who had just dealt with the FTC with Vemma.  And there’s no doubt in my mind that he’s planning to make another public attempt.
Appreciate the hard work studying this… Im apart of the #1 company on there Advocare… have been for 7 years and one of the higher paid single guys in the nation… I just have to disagree with “over priced Products” comment. 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. Highly recommend everyone seeing this and you sir to watch “Rise of the Entrepreneur” by Eric Worre on Itunes to get some serious facts about the MLM industry. Thanks for all the research and blessings!

Jillian Chase is a US based company that is the brain child of a company that has been in business for more than fifty years with great success. With monthly promotions, bonuses, a fast start program and many levels to achieve even greater income level for everyone. Plus, you don’t have to deliver the product or be limited in where you sell. This company believes in providing the best in customer service and cares about the consultants who represent them. Not great at parties? That is okay, with Jillian Chase, you can sell individually or online. Yes, they have great rewards, too, for the Host or Hostess who does have the party. This company is very unique in that MEN really love the products. Take a look at the catalogue online and see why. Did I mention you don’t have to carry inventory? Also, your very first pieces will be customized just for you to use in your home and to share with family and friends. So, if you decide the company is not for you, there is no lost. You still keep the beautiful pieces at incredible savings.

Having studied the psychology and behavior of boomers, this example represents a major shift in my thinking about the industry.  I no longer perceive these types of opportunities as money-making pyramid schemes.  Instead, I now see it as a way to enhance many of the personal aspects of retirement that are rarely discussed let alone planned for, with the added benefit of supplementing other popular retirement income sources such as pension and social security.

Scentsy Fragrance is a home and fragrance industry company that employs direct selling. Started in 2003 by two sister-in-law Colette Gunnel and Kara Egan in Salt Lake City, the company manufactures all products in Meridian Ohio. Its flagship products are wickless and scented candles that are sold by independent consultants through in-home parties and online. The company generates well over $1 billion in sales globally every year.
My name is Lesley Mcquade and I am a skin care consultant with Rodan+Fields and I have been with the company for a year. We just launched in Canada in Feb but have been in the US for 6 years. We only do online sales and I help women chose the right regimen for them. We have 4 regimens for acne, anti-aging, red sensitive skin and sun damage. We have an amazing community of women, some earning enough money to retire due to our residual income model. We even have million dollar earners. We get designer jewelry, clothes, and purses and have a Lexus car program. Luxury trips to Maui, Greece, and more! Friend me on facebook, let's network!
The uniqueness of the Ambit Energy is the company does not seek to create a lot of noise about it nor promises to create any insane innovations. It just offers simple services to the people such as of providing gas service to home or electricity and all these at a cheaper rate than its competitors. It offers people an exceptional opportunity to save money and this approach does work. 

The sales force needs to be armed with incredible product. Selling is an extremely hard sport. When the sales force has inadequate product, their jobs are made that much more difficult, which then has corrosive affects on the company when people resort to cheating to move sub-par product. Learn from Toys R Us: if similar products can be obtained elsewhere at comparable prices, bankruptcy is inevitable.
#4- Set goals and don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone- One of the big things that keeps people from getting their goals is being afraid! Signing up for a direct sales company and achieving success might push you a little outside what you are comfortable with, but that’s ok! Take baby steps and keep your goals in mind, that will help you push yourself!
look if you go and search top MLM businesses, no matter what link you click on, the number one company is amway. Why everyone goes with different companies i don’t get it, check it out compare to mary kay. Here’s the thing though, I contract with amway, but my organization is worldwide. Mentorship organization. I feel which ever MLM business you choose, join a mentorship organization that is in that business. The reason why amway is number one is because of worldwide. it’s only 10% of everyone that is in amway, yet 90% of the 6 and 7 figure earners are part of worldwide…why? because they broken down the company and know exactly how to succeed and retire quicker than someone who tries amway on their own or joins another mentorship company. what’s the success rate? to those who do what others have done 100%. So at the end of the day, consider all of this. With amway and worldwide, it doesn’t matter how old you are, where you come from, ANYONE can do it. Mary Kay is a female company, good luck getting a bunch of single dudes to make it with that.

Hi Jesse, That does help some…thanks for answering my questions. My other questions are: I am not connected with nearly as many people as it sounds like you are. How can I be successful in this business? Also, morally I struggle with charging someone more money for something that they can get somewhere else? I know…not much of a business acumen. Lol thanks,
This MLM’s motive is a great natural path to healing using Naturopathy as its guide while #cleaneating, drinking medicinal herbs, and those free-loving souls are eating it up.  Apparently, they have the “The FASTEST, healthiest, simplest weight loss program on the planet.”  Now is this just a lot of gossip…no it’s not. The company has a line of products that are certified organic.
In order to find success with any of the top MLM opportunity, it comes down to finding a company that is the right fit for you. There is a lot to consider in the decision-making process. How long has the company been around? What is the compensation plan like? Is it an opportunity that you can feel passionate about? The answers to your questions will ultimately determine your future.

My name is Erin Pyka and I joined this new company all because I received a sample of the product and loved it! I am married to my amazing husband and we have two busy daughters who love being involved in dance and cheer. I also help take care of my grandparents and was a labor and delivery nurse working 12 hour shifts, so the idea of doing a “side gig” didn't sound appealing.
Except we don't have a container garden. We have one strawberry plant that our cat ate (thanks, Meredith). Gardenuity, a company that ships the container garden straight to your door, gives me the hope that one day this daydream will be a reality. Customers can choose from indoor herb kits or outdoor veggie gardens with which they'll receive their plant, container, soil, compost, plant food and (here's the the best part) concierge service which means they can panic call customer service to troubleshoot issues common to those who lack a green thumb.

I first learned about cabi in 2010 after being invited to their fall fashion show, The Scoop. After getting to fully experience the cabi brand, I was hooked. They have some of the most flattering and stylish clothes I’ve seen for women. Not only are their clothes fabulous, they have one of the highest retention rates in the direct sales industry. With cabi, Stylists can earn 25 – 33 percent on personal sales.


Hmmm, what should I say about this company, well it still seems like they are far from “the finest and most-respectable retail energy provider in America,” I feel this way because it was just a few years ago that they were dealing with a class action lawsuit.  But when you have $1.5 billion in revenue in the bank from your global business, a lawsuit doesn’t really seem to break your stride.
Hello everyone! I’m an affiliate with a fairly new company called Sparckily Apparel. We sell leggings, Canadian made clothing, tops and other accessories! This company is based out of St. John’s, Nl! They have very low startup cost which is what attracted me to join them! Leggings are becoming very popular everywhere! My website is http://www.sparckily.ca/#cozylegsboutique
What's better than food for connecting with others? From cooking shows in your hostess's home to Facebook parties, which are completely virtual, Pampered Chef consultants earn 20 to 25 percent commission based on sales volume. That can increase to up to 31 percent if you build a team. Startup kits begin at $109 and include what you'll need to put on a cooking show including tools such as basting brush, knives, grill pans, and all kinds of other fun kitchen wares.

This is one MLM business that is seriously committed to being eco-friendly…the company’s headquarters is powered by the power of the wind!  This company is looking only one way, and that’s to the future my friends. They use the internet to their advantage and use a very interesting innovative strategy by utilizing social marketing with their reps.  No one really likes or hopes to be bothered by non-friends on Facebook, but this company’s social media game plan is very effective and it’s better than throwing home parties (that no one may show up to…don’t judge me, I’m just stating the obvious).
We also offer a monthly prize club subscription. If you subscribe, each month, you are sent a 3 wick candle, with a ring valued at $40, and 2 essential bath bombs (they do not contain jewlery) in addition, you are given a map with a post card and stamp for the state that the candle represents! That is a lot of fun for the family!! Then you are entered into a monthly drawing for a spin on the wheel for prizes!! April’s winner won $1000 gift!

If the idea of potentially high risk and potentially high reward appeals to you, getting in on the ground floor with an MLM can be the way to go. We’ve compiled a list of several companies that launched in the last couple of years, have a look and see if there’s one that appeals to you. Some of the companies are even or were recently so called pre-launch mlm companies, meaning they are yet to launch publicly.


TrūAura Beauty is an incredible direct sales company that just started in February so the opportunity is HUGE! TrūAura offers skincare and cosmetics that are clean, natural and filled with pre and probiotics that naturally balance out your skins microbiome. No matter your skin type, TrūAuras products work with your skins custom PH levels to give you a soft, firm, glowing complexion. 

My wife has been a Mary Kay consultant for a little over a year and loves it. It does cost $99 for a starter kit, which is a one time purchase, and an order of $225 in inventory once every quarter to stay active. Staying active means keeping a 50% discount on any inventory you order. This means a 50% commission on anything you sell. Compared to a 25% commission selling Rodan & Fields. I am not bashing Rodan & Fields I was just using them as a comparison. I see a lot of negative opinions about direct sales companies and even sites devoted to bashing Mary Kay and I just don't get it. If you decide Mary Kay is not for you for any reason they will buy back all unused inventory you have a home for 90% of what you paid for up to a year. In what other business in the world can you risk so little for a possibility in a new career or part-time income. I have sifted through online comments from new Mary Kay consultants giving up completely after one party gets cancelled or doesn't go well. When you join Mary Kay you become a small business owner. People need to do their research and not be so bitter when they themselves fail or give up.
Along with the market itself, the number of potential prospects are also expanding with the movement of people getting out of the rat race and achieving leveraged income. Many of the highest paid professionals from major companies are migrating toward network marketing opportunities for this reason. Professionals in these position typically make a lot of money, but their time is extremely limited. Therefore, the value of leveraged income is paramount to their continued success, and they recognize the benefits of partnering with a network marketing company to bridge the gap.
Okay, we have a return to network marketing roots (can you remember the days of Tupperware parties…no? Well I’m not sorry to tell you there’s a reason for that).  Products for your kitchen, cooking demos, and an abundance of mommy bloggers.  Well homemakers are still the key demographic for this MLM, because they are looking for flexibility.  It’s not surprising to anyone that this company has done so well, but what is notable is that even Warren Buffet saw this company and decided he wanted a piece of the pie.

A benefit to becoming a consultant for Usborne books in the US is that the company is based out of the UK and their product is not available in the states except for the limited titles found in brick and mortar book stores and the small (outdated) selection on Amazon. So by being a direct-seller of this product, you have a leg up on the retail competition as you'll be offering new titles at the best possible price.


Good companies find ways to intelligently leverage technology. Thanks to Amazon and Wal-Mart, we’re all spoiled. We want what we want, we want it NOW and we want it delivered for free. Smart network marketing companies are eliminating as many barriers as possible to make it easier for consumers to place and receive orders. They’re finding ways to make it easier for consumers to connect via mobile apps, tell stories via social media tools, provide best-in-class web experiences and leverage as much data as possible to stay ahead of consumer demand. The corporate team also needs to leverage technology to enhance workflows.
I know it’s been a year since you posted for more info on a Health supplement company. I just saw your post, and I’m wondering if you have found a company to be part of.

Hi Holly, great list! I read in one of your comments that you list the companies with lower saturation in the marketplace. I did not see anyone mention NERIUMAD anywhere.

I'm sorry to hear that you're disappointed in this post, however the idea behind this article was actually to come from the perspective of a stay-at-home mom so it is indeed an opinion and not necessarily a "fact based" article. You're right, from what I can find currently, the startup price to join It Works! is $99, not $100. I will update that in my article. I found that information on an unofficial It Works! blog called WrapItLoseIt.net where I read that the best starter package retails for $499. When I checked out the official It Works! website I was unable to locate any information directly from the company that indicates the actual startup costs of joining the company which I find frustrating as I'm sure others do as well. Would you mind posting a link to that here so others can find quick and clear information on It Works! without having to dig? 

Hello. I have enjoyed reading about all these companies. My question is I went to serveral purse parties. Name brand purses. It was a party no around wanted to miss. But I think the lady passed away, I know she had cancer. But hope shes fine. But I want to do this if you can find out anything. I have tried but I'm not the greatest on a computer. Thank You, Vickie vsfrayser@yahoo.com

WHEN NANCY CRAMER WAS A young mother, she wanted to stay at home with her kids. It wasn't long, she says, before the multilevel marketing community found her and got her on board to start selling a line of vitamins and skincare products. She was intrigued by the sales pitch: She could be at home with her kids, make extra income on the side, and all she had to do was call 10 people per day.
It Works is a direct sales company founded in 2001 by Mark and Cindy Pentecost that deals with skin care and nutrition products. The privately owned company got its breakthrough because of its flagship products like the Ultimate Body Applicator and other anti-aging and nutritional supplements designed to make it easy for consumers to stay fit and healthy. The company, which employs over 10,000 people, generates over $500 million in annual revenues annually.
Start making money by promoting THE top brand in baby carriers that has been rapidly growing its store by including quality baby products parents can rely on. Ergobaby revolutionized how we carry babies back in 2002. Now, with their affiliate program you can refer sales and earn commissions! Do you wear your baby in an Ergo Carrier? If so, when friends ask about it, share your affiliate link with them!

I do not work for any of these companies. In fact, as of right now, I've never even worked in direct-sales. So, though I have researched these companies, what I've written here is merely my own observations and opinions and a list of companies I personally deemed the most trustworthy after much time culling the masses. I'm not guaranteeing that anyone will find themselves rolling in sweet, sweet cash by joining any of these companies.
Forever Living – Forever Living is based in Arizona in the USA. The company mainly deals with weight loss, personal care, skincare and nutritional supplements. The company is mainly focusing on the North American market where its major share of clients are based in. Forever Living was able to generate more than $1.7 billion on an annual basis recently. This is one of the best multi level marketing companies in the world currently.
Now, this one I like.  This company doesn’t use your typical Facebook stalking, 3-way calling, auto-shipping tactics.  It has leaped into the future, did its homework and decided to succeed with network marketing, finally.  The company is an affiliate business opportunity for those who are interested in some first-class digital marketing training; and the icing on the cake is that they have a free trial option.
