As a single mom, I needed to bring in extra money on top of my salary, and I decided to take a look at direct sales companies to make money. It can be tough work, but the 7 companies I’ve listed below provide awesome products, are great to their consultants and designers, and provide lots of resources to help you be successful. The commission I’ve earned from selling Scentsy, Thirty-One Gifts, and recently Origami Owl has helped me through some very tight times. As always, read the requirements of the consultant for each of these companies before making a decision. Do you need some extra cash? Take a look at these direct sales companies to make money and supplement your income!

Before launching Omnilife and becoming a billionaire, Jorge Vergara sold street tacos in Mexico, smuggled Herbalife supplements into Mexico, and sweet talked the Mexican government into changing their regulations in the nutritional products sector. This guy could make a movie about his life and it would probably win an Academy Award (he’s actually a major film producer on the side, casual).
An analysis of 32 income disclosure statements from direct selling companies by TruthInAdvertising.org found that 80 percent of distributors, or people selling their products, grossed less than $1,200 per year before expenses. At about half of those companies, the majority of distributors made no money at all. "Given that context, any income claim that expressly states or implies that this is a way for someone to gain financial freedom, to become wealthy, travel the world, become a stay-at-home parent is just false and deceptive," says Bonnie Patten, executive director for TruthInAdvertising.org.
Hello, I didn’t see Linen World and More listed above as one of the direct selling companies from home. Well, I am an Independent Linen World Consultant. Linen World company has been around for 35+ years providing our customers with quality items that you should see in every home. Linen World has great household items wrapped up in one exciting website. We have a lot to choose from.
Also, a reminder: I don't work for any of these companies and never have, so the information I'm giving you is based off of what I can glean from the internet as a potential sales representative. I assure you that short of calling a representative, I've done thorough research to provide the best, most accurate information on each company. If I feel that a company is not being very transparent or not allowing their representatives to be transparent then I will state that. Not as a dig on the company or any individual who works with them, but because I think that anyone who has ever swam the vast ocean of the internet looking for information on direct sales companies can recall, it's a huge pain in the butt to feel like you have to dig through endless websites and questionable testimonies only to find you never really got your answer.

As far as the retirement saving crisis is concerned, more and more people are coming to terms with the fact that they probably aren’t going to be able to save enough money to just sit around and slowly deplete their nest egg from age 62 to 100.  With the average 50 year-old estimated to have less than $50,000 in retirement savings, there is an obvious need to find alternative ways to either save more or generate supplemental income starting now, and continuing throughout retirement.  Moving beyond just the dollars and cents, boomers are growing tired of feeling guilty or bad about their past savings habits and are interested in moving towards possible solutions.
I found your article interesting. My wife and I have been involved with AdvoCare since November 2011. 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 – 99.7% in MLM actually “lose” money. What is the context of that statistic? That would mean A: the majority of MLM companies don’t have a buyback or return policy B: people that get started with MLM’s have to take on much more inventory that they are able to sell or C: this statistic is not accurate. 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. Thanks again. I look forward to reading more from you in the near future.

From my research of DCD, it seems that this is a company and product that would best suit a mom with older kids who can stay behind for chocolate-tasting parties since it seems pretty hard to sell the product through social-networking alone or in your own limited social-circles. I think that some of the products would sell well in an office setting too--say as holiday gifts from the boss at a large company.
LegalShield is an America-based business that sells legal service products using the MLM approach and is one of the oldest multi-level marketing companies in the US. It develops and sells pre-paid legal services through about 7,000 attorneys located all over the US. The company’s founder, Harland C. Stonecipher, started LegalShield in 1969 after being involved in a car accident.
Is there any direct sales for hair products and styling? I’m having the hardest time trying to find a company that does that. I would like to be a consultant of health and wellness and fashion under one website. So sell make up, skin, jewellery, hair products and healthy living bit am having a hard time finding hair stuff to complete this idea. Any suggestions? TIA

Norwex is also a great company to do direct sales with. Based out of Norway, the company has been around for over 20 years. They produce high quality microfiber cloths that can be used to clean your entire house with only water. Their mission is to reduce the use of toxic chemicals. 35% commission. No monthly dues or sales goals. They’ll send you your starter kit at no cost. All you have to do is sell $2000 in your first 90 days. If you don’t meet that goal you do have to pay $200 for your starter kit, but there are no other obligations. Lots of great incentives
Arbonne– (this is my friend April’s link) Arbonne has nutritional supplements & detox packages, skin care and makeup. Here’s why my friend April loves the company-  “the long-standing integrity of the company, commitment to quality & safety, focus on giving and serving others (not on personal gain) … but the compensation plan is incredibly generous which just frees you up to bless even more people.”

Right now, as I type this, my two-year-old is sitting next to me eating a giant bowl of Cheerios for dinner because I've spent the entire day working from home and still have to start dinner. She's covered from chest to knees in milk that's making its way onto the woven blanket I've carefully tucked around our couch cushions for exactly this reason. So, add "wash couch blanket and the toddler" to my list of things to do tonight, on top of dinner. And dishes. I'm busy, and I'm tired, and I'm juggling like ten things at any given time while also trying to pull in some extra income. It's a crunch, right? If you've ever thought about joining a direct sales company to help make ends meet but, like me, felt like you didn't have the time (or energy) to take on a time-consuming side hustle, then this list is for you.
I came across this page as I googled “selling products from home” I am in desperate need to do something to bring income into my household. My husband just got laid off work, I’m a 22 year old mom to 2 adorable boys (3 & 1 years old). My husband has done everything he can and refuses I work because he feels it’s his responsibility to bring in the income at home, but right now I just feel like I need to step in and do something to help out! It is hard for me to go out and work which is why I’m seeking a work from home job.If anyone can help me get started or has any advice they can share with me please email me.
Her first class fundraiser was in 2009. With the principal's permission, Darlene sent catalogs and letters to parents, explaining the goal: Sell what you can in two weeks (without kids going door to door, for safety's sake) and all profits will fund field trips and special events. Since she's in Avon's President's Club—a rank achieved when you sell over $10,100 in a year—the class would get at least 40% commission on sales. Her students' parents sold $1,100 worth of products, earning about $475. It enabled them to hear from a bat scientist while studying the book Stella Luna, and visit a nursing home to read to the elderly.

Then what? To cultivate repeat business, Kate does specialty workshops on topics like Caulking, Energy Efficiency, and Drywall Repair. She strives for four events a month, targeting high-exposure home shows when possible. ("But I won't spend more than $500 on a booth.") Each tool party is an "empowerment session," she says. "I've met women who've never even held a hammer, yet they leave feeling capable of doing basic repairs." Kate has learned a lot too. She recently installed a ceiling fan all on her own. "When I switched it on and it didn't wobble, I felt incredibly accomplished," she says.
Online Tutoring and Lessons — If you know a skill that can be taught in person, it can probably also be taught online over video chats. Offering lessons and tutoring online is a great way to work from home, on your schedule, doing something you know or enjoy. And teaching English online has been experiencing a huge boom in business these past few years.

If the official site of the MLM program you want to join does not have any of these features, you will probably have a hard time with making sales, especially if you have limited experience with selling products. A program that provides you with resources designed to help you become a better seller wants you to succeed and will help you generate more revenues.
Hi! I am an Independent Consultant for Rodan + Fields. I just joined a month ago. Our industry is skincare- and we are the number one skincare line. My favorite product is our unblemish regimen because I've seen people use it who've struggled with acne for years and tried endless amounts of products and unblemish is the only one that's worked for them. I chose this company because the products are incredible- I'd never sell something that didn't yield incredible results. This is definitely a company worth joining!!

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!

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.
The low cost often lures people in without doing their research. People make many mistakes when starting in MLM. Some don't research the company or product. Others don't read the contract they sign. Many newbies rely on the information provided by their sponsor. This is a problem because even the best sponsor won't be able to cover every little detail, and of course, some sponsors fail to disclose everything (in which case, you don't want that sponsor). Problems people experience in MLM due to failure to research or study the contract is their fault, not MLM.
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.
Busting out into a world where you are met with travel bloggers, hotel jumpers, and digital wanderers, seems to me that #wanderlust had to be one the best ideas ever…out of the MLM industries.  A lot of people are willing to work far away and alone, and a big reason is because people want to travel and see the world. Therefore, a remote income business with a travel MLM company just seems like the right move.   World Ventures came out with a solid effort in the travel niche, and was named as one the incorporation 5000’s fastest growing companies 2 times in a row.
I am with Mannatech, an 18 year old global home-based business in the exploding wellness industry which has over 1 million associates & growing, 70 patents, easy duplicable system in 20 countries including USA, Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand & South Africa, no deliveries, work around your own families commitments, full training, travel holiday incentives to be won, a rewarding business that makes a difference in other people's lives.... As well as your own.
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. I’ve been working with Arbonne now for quite a while and none of those comments apply to this company, which is why I believe they have survived and are only growing at this point, despite some people’s opinion that they will soon be relics like Mary Kay. To become a consultant is a mere $75 dollars, the kit is involved with all free samples and material. Product loading is prohibited. Each event we host regularly ends with most if not all attendees becoming a preferred client for $20 joining fee for the first year and a $15 renewal every year with no monthly expectation and a guaranteed minimum of 20% off of all stock at all times and 40% off of all packages at all times. 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. Great article!!!
I’ve written ad nauseum about the idea of offering special, confidential deals with “elite” networkers. Confidential deals occur when a company provides extra incentives to lure experienced networkers from another company. The incentives take many forms, but usually involve up-front money, preferred placement in the genealogy, enhanced earning potential in the pay plan, etc. If you look historically at the companies that have been aggressive with deals, theres always a massive POP followed by a massive DROP. Who gets hurt? The average distributors that signed up under the pretenses of joining the “next hot thing.”
MLM restructures the traditional business model — manufacturer to retail shop to customer — such that sales agents working for the manufacturer sell directly to customers, bypassing the retail shop altogether. MLM companies can then convert customers into advocates for their products and possibly even sales agents. Because there is no retail store for the products they sell, MLM agents typically work from their homes, interacting with customers in the community or, more often, over the internet.
Cookie Lee Jewelry was built on the concept of empowering women to reach for their dreams. The company offers fabulous and one-of-a-kind pieces and consultants earn 50% gross profit from sales made. To start, you pay $60 for the business tools and have your choice of spending $500 for $1,000 of jewelry, or spending $99 for a pre-pack of the current season’s jewelry with a retail value of $200.
A few noteworthy points on this list… The only companies considered for this list are U.S.A. based; and if you click on each and every company linked above, what you will not find should be as interesting to you (and as revealing) as what you will find. There are no travel companies, only two technology companies (ACN and 5LINX), just one service company (Legal Shield), and 22 health and wellness companies. Even Amway, whose core product line still includes soap, really got started by way of the wellness revolution! Read this book by Paul Zane Pilzer and you’ll understand why nutrition, weight management, and skincare products continue to drive the trends in the network marketing industry to this day.
Considering their products are botanically based with an ingredient policy that prohibits many of the chemicals and fillers Mary Kay and Avon still use in their own products, I’d say they’ve established a business for men and woman who are truly serious about the health of their skin, not just the evenness of their complexion. A little research goes a long way.
First, Elliot, thank you for this article. Your sense of truly wanting to help comes through and it’s refreshing. Like MommyFinance, I too have suffered PTSD from previous runs at MLM but I have been looking for legitimate ways of making extra income and seems I’m being directed toward trying MLM again. Your article gave me hope that there are some good ones out there. What you said about finding the one that fits me and leaving a legacy for family really turned on a light for me and I greatly appreciate that. A wine business is not quite up my alley but I will certainly direct those who might be interested your way.

Hi JP. Good stuff all the way around, my man. Hey, I’ve been approached by Ariix, & didn’t know if have heard of them, and if so, a simple 👍 or 👎 will suffice, unless you’d like to elaborate, of course. One obvious concern I have is that (& can disclose this, since it’s of public record/knowledge per the list above), the current leadership in place at Ariix all came from USANA, and given the FBI/SEC became involved with USANA in ‘07, & Ariix opened in ‘11, well….I think you know from where I’m coming as it relates to anything you may be able to convey. Thx again, JP, for all of your efforts, & if you’d feel more comfortable in emailing me, obviously that would be perfectly fine! And apologies on this extremely verbose message!😳
I’m surprised Rodan and Fields didn’t make the list, considering they are the fourth largest premium skin care company with the top three being 50+year old companies, Estée Lauder, Lancôme & Clinique. We are North America’s 4th largest and fastest growing premium skincare company, but we’re not in stores, the top 3 — Clinique, Lancôme and Estée Lauder.

She's covered from chest to knees in milk that's making its way onto the woven blanket I've carefully tucked around our couch cushions for exactly this reason. So, add "wash couch blanket and the toddler" to my list of things to do tonight, on top of dinner. And dishes. I'm busy, and I'm tired, and I'm juggling like ten things at any given time while also trying to pull in some extra income. It's a crunch, right? If you've ever thought about joining a direct sales company to help make ends meet but, like me, felt like you didn't have the time (or energy) to take on a time-consuming side hustle, then this list is for you.
i found a new and upcoming jewelry sales from home! FREE start-up!!! i almost fainted. lol anyhow, you get your own website to design {easy to navigate} you get to choose from hundreds of pieces to sale on your site… you get 216 as of now but that is soon changing to more. lots of extras! its really too much to list. you get a commission on each item you sale. you dont have to handle any orders or shipping, its all done for you. really simple. checks are mailed the 15th of each month. no paypal required. just be sure once you start to attend the webinar. it will answer lots of questions. i have been doing this a few months now and i love it. i home school my kids so its perfect for me… and again… its FREE!! haha really. i havent spent a dime. :0)
Before I made a commitment to the company, I tested the products and activity workbooks on my four year old to see if liked them. Not only did he like them...he loves them! That made my decision easier. It's not a get rich quick, you have to put in some work. But as an educator, former tutoring company owner, and a mom, I really wanted a quality product to sell with a small monetary investment. An important thing about Fundanoodle is the support from the company's owner and the other Fundanoodle ambassadors. I've have never witnessed a more kind and supportive group of ladies that want everyone to succeed.
Scentsy you join $125.77 tax/shipping and all for u kit u have to make $200 in sales to stay active (u buy all ur stuff on the store books sales promotions and testers and more DOES not count as ur $200 goal.) u have to pay $10 for ur website each month and u can join warmer of the month or scent of the month ranging prices between $65-$85 plus tax shipping...(cause its under $200 to gain free shipping) u get no deals for being a scentsy sales person if u personally buy...u pay same as others would 20 pec commission
Melaleuca, Inc. is listed as a Direct Marketing Company. 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. The company states that it offers a “Satisfaction or Money Back Guarantee”.
Before launching Omnilife and becoming a billionaire, Jorge Vergara sold street tacos in Mexico, smuggled Herbalife supplements into Mexico, and sweet talked the Mexican government into changing their regulations in the nutritional products sector. This guy could make a movie about his life and it would probably win an Academy Award (he’s actually a major film producer on the side, casual).

As an Ind Distributor and mom who loves naturally based products, I love sharing about IT Works! IT Works is famous for the Ultimate Body Applicator that tightens tones and firms any area in just 45 minutes, but also offers over 30 other products that everyone wants including Greens, Energy Drinks, and Essential Oils. As wrap distributors we make money by talking to people about the products and the business just thru social media or word of mouth. It's so simple, so much fun, and there are so many different ways to make money. Let's get your journey started today!
Freelancing — This is another at-home gig I love to recommend. Freelancers provide some sort of service, and often they’ll do it online. Freelance jobs include things like web design, bookkeeping, social media management, and being a virtual assistant. Even if you don’t think you have marketable skills, all it takes is a conversation with someone about what you know how to do, and you’ve got the potential for a freelance business. Plus, you can always deep-dive into something that interests you (Facebook ads, landing page design, marketing on Pinterest, podcast production, and more) and specialize in that area. You can even freelance as a customer service representative for other online entrepreneurs!
Surveys— These are a really popular way to make extra money in your spare time. Many surveys pay out between $1 and $5, but they’re sometimes hard to qualify for. If you’ve got time on your hands, they can be an easy way to make some extra money here and there. PineCone is one of my favorite survey companies and they pay $3 per survey. Not too shabby.
Some 20.5 million people were involved in direct selling in the U.S. in 2016, according to the Direct Selling Association, the national trade association for companies that market products and services directly to consumers through an independent sales force. (While many direct selling companies use an MLM model, not all do, according to the DSA.) Recruits pound the pavement hawking everything from candles to essential oils and weight-loss drinks. Some popular, newer companies include Rodan + Fields (skincare products), LuLaRoe (apparel) and Scentsy (scented products).

When you hit over a billy in annual sales, that’s reason enough to be on the shortlist. On top of that, they’ve been in the MLM game for over two decades, and they’re now the “largest online wellness shopping club” (basically just sounds like a fancy way of saying they sell a lot of miracle diet pills…for our rankings of the best women diet pills are here).
Damsel in Defense is about equipping women with the tools to not only keep them safe but also to give them the confidence to know that they have a way out if they ever feel threatened. We are very excited about our affordable and adorable line of products including stun guns, 18% Pepper Spray with UV Dye, Kubitons, alarm key chains and other survival tools for the home and car. Whether you are at home or traveling, running or celebrating downtown with the girls, Damsel in Defense has the products and fact-based education that can and does save lives.
When I first joined I only planned to be a consultant until we got back on our feet after my husbands job loss. But, I fell in love with the mission of the company, the products, and all of the friends I had made along the way. Plus no 9-5 job can compare to the flexibility of direct sales! Now, I have an amazing team who is truly helping make a difference in the world.
I have totally fallen in love with the personal connections you make at home parties and the far-reaching “ripple effect” of sharing our mission through the home party model (which is hilarious because I never even used to go to home parties). It’s also a super predictable way to conduct business since you generally know that if a hostess has 10 people show you’ll be walking away with a $700 or more party (that’s been huge in making this sustainable for my family). But I love that when a month is a little slower on the home party front that I can put together a couple of quick online shows or dig up a vendor event to make some fresh contacts. There are so many ways to work this business.
I am very surprised not to see Younique on here for beauty products. They have their number one seller the 3D fiber lash mascara which is SO awesome!! I love it so much and their products are all natural. And all of the ladies are so sweet. I am so glad that I joined this company when I did. If you are interest in know more please go to my website youniqueproducts.com/kayladoffin
Well if you didn’t know before, this company is all about body shapers and nutritional products, with a “greens line” in their product line up as well.  The company got some built up heat in 2015, but have later cooled down a bit.  There was minimum quota of $112 that had to be met every month in order to earn commissions from the company and after a while their distributors had a hard time keeping up with these expectations. Not everyone (including their grandmothers) needs more than one or two body shapers. LOL.

As per Direct Selling Association, Avon and Amway are the top two but in my opinion the product range, the health benefits and the opportunity program my Network Marketing company offers, makes DXN one of best companies. Personally I am involved with DXN since 2003 and after traveling to 46 countries where we have offices, I found out that for any company to do good, one need solid products. We have over 100 products helping more than 7 million members globally. For more information, you can contact me or can watch my videos in the You Tube.

Trades of Hope- (this is my friend Shelby’s link) Trades of Hope is an amazing company committed to empowering women around the world out of poverty. Their fair trade model helps them support artisans all over the world by helping them earn a living wage. Here’s what Shelby loves about the company- “It’s such an honor to advocate on behalf of & empower women from around the globe to RISE UP out of poverty & human trafficking by selling their beautiful, handmade, fair trade goods & promote sustainability — for both Artisans & TOH Compassionate Entrepreneurs.”
Paparazzi Jewelry is a great idea if you’re selling to fashionistas on a budget. Each piece is only $5, you’re able to choose by color and style and commission is generous at 45%. There are multiple starter kits available, including a $300 jewelry package, a $300 jewelry and hair package, a $700 large home party kit, a $1,400 small boutique starter kit or a $2,750 small event starter kit.

We will be a BILLION dollar company in 2018, only 4 years old! Our clients range from simply wanting healthy beautiful hair to alopecia and cancer patients that need full regrowth!
Our 2018 contest was open to direct selling companies with at least 40 full-time employees based in North America. Any employer or employee could have nominated their company during the open period last fall, which ended on October 23, 2017. Each nomination included a contact person who received all of the communications from Quantum. After the nomination period ended, Quantum sent out an official invitation to each company to begin the survey process.
I totally agree, Mary. You can lose soooo much more just by opening up a small storefront business. I was in the Spa Industry and then the economy tanked in late 2008. I did not renew my lease in 2009. Lost my several hundred thousand dollar build-out. Lost so much more than taking an MLM business seriously. Even if I would have front loaded on a ton of product, I still would have been better off. People spend $750 and get some business cards then do nothing and blame MLM.
Writing – Whether it is blog content, articles, or business letters, this way of monetizing your skills has become quite common. Micro-job sites like Fiverr allow you to post your skills as “gigs” that you sell for a price, usually a few dollars. Sites like Freelancer and Upwork are “business to consumer” sites where sellers are linked with buyers. Most of the time jobs are awarded based on skills, qualification, buyer needs, and bids made by the seller (you, the freelancer) to get the buyer’s work done. Other sites screen you by requiring you to provide a sample before you are graded and placed in the appropriate writer level based on your writing skill.
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?
And did you see that? Team members? I'm about to promote to Director in the next month - just six months after starting. And again, not because I've been badgering people to join, just because I'm connecting with people who love the products and, for whatever reasons, want to become a consultant. I have one team member who has a $150/month deficit in her current budget, but she is a single mom and need something she can do on her own timing. Another wants to learn to cook better and loves the products. Another lady just retired and needs some extra income and wants to get out and meet people still. I'm super grateful for the team I signed up with as well. They've been great to work with, super helpful, and don't pressure me to do anything other than reach my own goals.
Here's the thing about Avon though--there are a lot of hidden seller costs, from the catalogs to the packaging you'll use-- while the start up fee at the moment appears to be only $15 (!!) I can't find anything on monthly fees or quotas. I do think there's opportunity for a small passive income with Avon, but anyone considering selling Avon would do best to research personal experiences and decide from there.

Kaeser & Blair offers a flexible, risk-free opportunity selling promotional products in an industry that does over $21.5 billion in sales each year. Earn up to $20,000 annually as a part-time business owner, and up to $185,000 annually as a full-time business owner. Getting started is simple and inexpensive, with standard basic starter packages costing only $85 – the entire amount of which is refunded after your first $1500 in sales. K&B also offers a FREE Trial Launch Program, so you can try the opportunity before you fully commit.
Well think of your grandma, remember her perfume or hand cream…chances are she probably got it from Avon and that’s kind of their reputation.  But don’t misjudge the number of grandmas that bought from Avon.  This company is the one that approached the yearly revenue of Amway with a cool $5.7 billion dollars.  But what goes up must come down…their sales have been declining over the last 5 years, and this company just sold their North American branch after quite a few years in the business.
Blogging— I love blogging! It offers you a great outlet to share your ideas with the world, and there are lots of ways you can “monetize” your blog and develop income streams, which means your income potential is basically unlimited. Blogging does require work and you’ll need to learn a lot (either on your own or through a course), but it’s really popular with moms for good reasons.

Good question, but the precise answer is unknown. It is a unknown because every week, some companies go out of business and others launch. There is no up-to-date listing of them all. Any list you may find excludes companies in business and includescompanies that are no longer in business. I have heard over the years that there are between 700 and 1,500 active MLM companies in the USA. If you are thinking about joining a company as a representative, read this…

To become a stylist for Stella and Dot, you'll need to put in an initial investment of around $200+ This cost includes the jewelry you'll be putting on display (and hopefully selling) at your initial trunk show (home-party). Stylists earn 25% of their total sales, so if you sell $100 worth of jewelry at your first trunk show you'll take home $25. Given the price of the pieces though, you'll likely make more if you host a large enough show.

My wife and I spent the last 2 days reading your reviews on the DSD business and we are really interested in this. Both of us have been in the MLM business (corporate) for years and feel like it’s time to get away from the usual 9-5. Would you mind emailing me a complete compensation plan (rank & pay-out, active level requirement, etc.) as well as some of the must-do items in the first 30,60,90 days period?
My advice to someone looking into DS is to find something that you actually love and know that you could share with other people, not sell it to them, but share with them why you love it. I do fairs and events and I share with people how amazing these little hair clips are. I get excited about them and it shows. 90% of the women who try them on, end up buying them because they love them. So find something you LOVE and not something just to sell. 

The gift company Thirty-one was founded in 2003.

If you become a leader to new consultants, you'll earn a percentage of their commission as well. There's also a monthly subscription fee for a personalized website and emails to customers.

I’ve written ad nauseum about the idea of offering special, confidential deals with “elite” networkers. Confidential deals occur when a company provides extra incentives to lure experienced networkers from another company. The incentives take many forms, but usually involve up-front money, preferred placement in the genealogy, enhanced earning potential in the pay plan, etc. If you look historically at the companies that have been aggressive with deals, theres always a massive POP followed by a massive DROP. Who gets hurt? The average distributors that signed up under the pretenses of joining the “next hot thing.”
"Motherhood is hard, and it's really hard to find time for friendship honestly, so when someone you think is a friend is actually trying to sell you something — that hurts," said Fortin. "Our MLM friends legit love the products they sell and need to make money. We get that, but let's please be genuine about our intentions with one another up front."
Im not sure where you get your information but you are wrong on It Works. I have been with thr company 3 years now and have paid off all my credit cards and paid off my car in full. The start up cost is only $99 which you would know had you actually reasearched and looked at the site. Your comment about being sure to fail is way off. I haven't failed, my team hasn't failed and neither have those that I know personally making $100,000 per month. It Works is a Billion Dollar DEBT FREE company. Our CEO is awesome. Had you done full research, you would see the truth about how great of a company this is. Like ALLLLL DS companies, you get out of it what you put into it. If anyone says you're sure to fail, they failed themsleves, the company didnt fail them. Im very disappointed that this type of blogging isnt fact related but simply opinion bases.
Tracy Willard of California began her MLM career out of necessity.  “Prior to getting involved in my business, I told my friends to never let me join one of those things… but when our family was hit by the mortgage crisis I had to do something different.”  She started her business with the intention some retirees may also find themselves.  “I started with the idea that I just needed to make my month easier.  My company helped me figure out what I needed to do in order to make an extra $500 per month.”

The trunk cost has varied a lot since the company started just 11 years ago, and there have been seasons it was as much as 4K for the 4 month selling season to purchase the trunk - which is *samples* of what they sell, not inventory. You get one of each piece (does not include home, toys or luggage.) the sizes are varied and the same for all reps - you don’t get to select the sizes you want your samples in.
