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.

You want to go back in a time machine and relive the old days of your younger, fitter and slimmer self?? Well if you just said yes, you are a part of the targeted market: everyone!  With their insane sale profit numbers, this company always makes the list for the top 20 MLM companies in the world, bringing in about $1.4 billion dollars in yearly revenue.  Not only are you selling a product people already have so much trust in, but the new associate cost to sign up is only $30, really one of the lowest.
Oh I understand it. No different than mine...except we are not capped at 180,000 a year. Our commissions are not capped at all...only our bonus cycles. Those are capped at $624,000 per year per business center. there are still levels...you get your two people that is level 1 they get their two people that is their level one your level two. Volume flows up 100 percent...well that is only fair. Who would want to be part of a MLM where everyone didn't have an equal opportunity to succeed and earn. Your earnings should be able to exceed that of your sponsor....if they can't, then it isn't really your own business is it? The thing is...my company doesn't promote deceitful practices...like telling people it isn't a multi level marketing business when it is. You can't earn unless you create one level (that is your two coaches) they can't earn unless they create one level....this creates many levels/layers. Call it what you want, but it is what it is and we do not deny it!
Okay, if former presidential candidates wasn’t enough, this company even got a very popular American paper, the New York Times, to make some high profile endorsements.   Just shy of making it to the top 10 MLMs list, this company has some significant worth…let’s say about $3 billion dollars!  If you check them out on the stock exchange, you’ll see their growth rate is incredible.

I agree with you that much of the industry is flawed, but what about an MLM that has a service rather than a product such as electricity. It’s not like that could go out of style or that once you buy it you don’t need it again or that your monthly supply is too much and you’re going to stop the monthly subscriptions. I can honestly say that I cannot stand most MLM companies because regardless what you believe or how much you like the product, if you have to try to convince someone else to use it then inevitably the system is flawed and eventually your residuals will dry up. Electricity though, that’s different in my opinion, no one has to convince me to use it, it just comes by default. Find me an MLM that is not selling so much as showing someone an alternative to what they already have to pay and I’d be interested.

These brothers from Israel changed the minds of the entrepreneurs behind the company, Seacret Direct, when they managed to take the typical start up business from the kiosk (you know those booths in the mall) to the beyond and turned it into a global direct selling company worth millions of dollars.  These skincare product companies are pretty boring these days, but the company’s dead sea products originate with a 5,000-year-old history and a huge fan following.
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.
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.
Talk about heavyweights in the industry! Tecademics is what we call a digital company, and quite befitting because they have one the most extensive digital marketing training programs around to offer.  The founder, Chris Record, who used to be at Empower Network and was highly acclaimed there, launched Tecademics after he left that company.  This digital training arrives with a bigger price mark, but it’s not even close to what you’d have to pay for a university degree.

How does a pink stun gun sound? If you’re an advocate of women protecting themselves and their children with self-defense weapons, consider selling with Damsel in Defense. The company offers female-oriented stun guns, pepper spray, door alarms and other self-defense tools. For $179, you’ll receive multiple stun guns, pepper spray, kid tracker, door alarm, auto tool, brochures, business cards and more.
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.

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).


I have a friend who is proposing I join Arbonne? She would be good to work with although I am not educated on all the MLM companies and don’t want to make the wrong choice. I also have a blog which I want to leverage and it seems like most of the health and wellness MLMs utilize hosted parties. Are there any that are more internet based that have had a long time track record! Thanks and sorry for all the questions!


This is a wonderful list! My husband and I are independent consultants for Paparazzi Accessories. It is a huge blessing to be able to work from home or pretty much wherever we choose to work from for the day.

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.”
I am a Founding Consultant for a wonderful new ground floor direct selling company that is currently wide open in the US. The company has been in prelaunch for over a year and during that time has had great success testing their products in several locations in the US. The company was able to create a wonderful new training program and website that makes it so simple to provide training to you and your downline and serve your customers. If the idea of being in business, being the first in your area, and selling upscale products that are guaranteed to be the best in quality and workmanship sounds like something you might like to do. Then, we should talk. I always ask my customers one simple question, “Where can you find the perfect gift for every occasion, have it personalized at no extra charge, gift wrapped and delivered for you and you never have to leave your home to do it?”

If you’re headed towards the future, WGN will be there waiting.  This company is ready to take on the world and they just may be ready to do so.  They sell every futuristic gadget you could think of, some items include their space phones, wearable tech, and VR (virtual reality gear).  They’ve only been in business for a limited amount of years, but they are on a constant rise in the MLM list of top 100 businesses globally.
This is awesome! I didn’t know there was an MLM company that sells wine. I may look into this. I’m still on the search for a solid company. I pretty much have PTSD with MLM companies because of past teams I signed up under. They were all about hype and money but never did explain HOW to build the business. It was so bad that I am now more cautious and aware of these type of people.
Backstory: In 1999 Ginny left her full-time job in hospice management when the family moved from Arizona to Kansas so that Doug could take a new job. Bored one afternoon, she browsed through a Silpada catalog that belonged to her sister-in-law. "Halfway through, I already had a $350 wish list," she says. So Ginny decided to become a rep to earn some free bling and hopefully make friends. She took $1,000 from savings to purchase display jewelry, conservatively calculating that she'd need 12 parties to replenish the account. Her first party yielded $1,500 in sales, $450 each in commission and free jewelry, and six more bookings. Doug said, "Something tells me we've got a good thing going here."
As with any business venture, it’s important to manage your expectations when signing on with an MLM. Marketing materials may sell you the idea of making good money without leaving your house, but business ventures like these take time to deliver a return on investment. Not every sales agent will be making $100,000 per year right away or even five years down the line. Be realistic about how much you’re likely to sell and how much you’re likely to earn. 

(May 2017 update: did this go under?) The sign up cost will make you do a triple take (almost four figures), but you get to set your own retail price on every product you sell. If you’ve got the skills to make people cough up the cash for their products (which, btw, are pretty legit), you could definitely make that money back. They’ve also been winning plenty of awards (even a growth award from the Direct Selling Association themselves).


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.
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. 

Founded in 1978, Forever Living Products is a multi-billion dollar MLM company with a presence in over 150 countries. Forever Living manufactures and sells dozens of exclusive, beneficial wellness products based on aloe vera. According to Forever Living, aloe enhances the body, inside and out, and its products ranging from age-defying facial treatments to delicious, antioxidant rich drinks.
I have tried Arbonne products. They're not life-changing, though I'll admit they're not only beautifully packaged, but they somehow feel extra luxurious in comparison to anything at the drug store. Because of the price, I wouldn't recommend trying to sell to your fellow mommy friends who are probably already feeling guilt about the air-freshener plug-in they bought at Wal-Mart. If you decide to sell Arbonne, branch out to friends and family with older children or even try throwing parties with the high school crowd where everyone gets to experience a facial and a foot soak. That's how you really sell this stuff.
I’m from the uk. I am a Matron in a GP practice and have been approached by Arbonne. Ur video confirms most of my thoughts although doing aesthetics as a side line I though I might be able to run along side that and so not have to approach family n friends as that is horrendous!!! – i am really interested in ur local league marketing though – how would I find out more about this

The company is considered one of the best pay masters among the multi level marketing companies in the world.

Taylor researched the investment required to launch an effective business-building campaign for a recruitment-focused MLM (a company that places compensation and incentives on recruiting a "down-line," as well as selling a product). He estimates a minimum of $25,000 in total expenses that include incentives, products, phone, internet, giveaways, computer supplies, advertising, and travel etc. To come up with this figure, he joined a recruitment-focused company and worked full-time with the business for a year.
You definitely forgot Thrive by Le-Vel. Premium nutritional supplement line. Weekly commission, no promoter fees, free cloud office, training at your fingertips, free customer accounts, great demand for health right now more than ever. I have never felt better in all my years as a mom. I decided to promote because of the product and how it made me feel. Though all teams within the company may not be as great as my team, it is a wonderful company! My team...we are like family. Always there for each other. I love promoting Thrive!

Backstory: Leah discovered Celebrating Home at a school PTO event, while living on Grand Forks Air Force base in North Dakota. Having just finished chemo for cervical cancer (she's in remission now), she hosted a party for fun. While it was winding down, her husband, David, 32, came in from his second job and said, "You could sell that stuff." Leah laughed it off, but David encouraged her to try. "He felt I needed something positive after being so sick," she says. When offered a start-up kit for half price as part of a special promotion, Leah bought in and lined up events with friends on the base, showing how to cook quick meals and set beautiful tables with the stoneware.

Hey Jesse, you forgot about Primerica! My brother makes a lot of money with them and he’s only been there 6 years and he makes $8-10 Grand a month now! Kindve wish I would’ve started with him when he first joined because the company does have great concepts and just recently was named one of Forbes top 50 trustworthy companies! That’s awesome! I didn’t have the time to commit then but I just got rolling 2 months ago and I’ve made $900 this month and will be over a grand once I help this next family get a policy in place! I so wish I would’ve got started years ago!

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.
This is such a cool website! I love interior decorating and clothes. Have you heard of shop Stevie? I just tried to get info on becoming a sales rep for them, but they don’t have the option right now in my area. I’m also a part time school teacher, just looking to make some extra money on the side while I’m at home with my kids. I would love to hear your suggestions. Thanks!

I do make money writing these articles and you're welcome to join HubPages and give it a shot too!

This article is not trying to convince anyone that an MLM company is the right choice for them. It is intended to help women who are interested in joining a direct sales company to make an educated choice on which company to join. This is just the tip of the iceberg and should absolutely be used in conjunction with further research from additional sources.
Sales agents in MLM companies frequently work for commissions on sales. In addition, MLM agents typically get commissions on the sales of their “downstream.” Sales agents are able to recruit new sales agents into their “downstream,” and those sales agents can recruit new agents as well. An MLM sales agent usually makes money from each sale in their “downstream,” creating a form of passive income.

So, know anyone who doesn't like chocolate? We didn't think so. Cocoa Exchange offers exclusive products including chocolate candies, sauces, and gourmet treats, all made in the USA by Mars, Inc.

You’ve probably heard of the grueling P90X workout system, but did you know that Team Beachbody offers a whole line of workout programs, shakes, supplements, nutritional bars, gear and much more? With a low startup cost of $39.95 and a monthly recurring fee of $15.95 – this could be a great home-based business opportunity for the fitness enthusiast.
(Update: In June 2017, the co-founder, Dave Wood, has for the time being stepped down following his check-in into drug rehabilitation and the company no longer exists). I wonder if the buzz of Empower Network will ever die down? This is one of those rare gems of the MLM industry that exploded onto the scene and did not hit a bump in the road by dying out only after a year of being out there.  Although now the company is on decline, and its highly doubtful they’ll make it on any lists in the years to come.
Ladies (and gents) all across the country are earning extra income and creating sustainable home businesses for themselves and their families by selling products to their friends, family and community. Gone are the days where we had to rely on a college degree to earn a sizable income. We are now able to start businesses in less than one week if you’re fast. But, if you’ve never done it before, how do you start your own business? And, how do you make your business successful?
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.
I think when you made comments about a company you should have kept them neutral or not only commented part of a story. Ambit did have a lawsuit, but it also has several JD Power awards, A+BBB, and many other accolades. I don’t know details of the suit, it may have been 100% justified, but I do know lawsuits are not always justified. Sometimes people are looking to make a buck
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?
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.
Well they were hot…this company was caught in the act and had some shade thrown their way after they were found to have been over-inflating their health products for consumer purchase.  But really though?  What company do you know that doesn’t do this in the MLM health industry? It seems like a common practice, even if its “just a bit,” so they are able to pay out commissions made.  Some perspective for the shade…their fiber product was 900% more costly than “leading alternatives” and their Trioten protein blend was 600% more pricey as well when comparing their products to companies such as Herbalife and Shaklee.

The company is the premier U.S. maker of handcrafted maple wood baskets. We offer an extensive line of baskets from traditional baskets to seasonal baskets in your choice of 3 stain colors. Longaberger also offers, Coffee, Food, Totes, Collegiate and Team Spirit Baskets and our American Valor Line with all 5 Military branches available. Plus, Woven Traditions Pottery (the #1 selling dinnerware in the US) Home Accessories and our new Flameware Ceramic Cookware and more!


I have a friend who is proposing I join Arbonne? She would be good to work with although I am not educated on all the MLM companies and don’t want to make the wrong choice. I also have a blog which I want to leverage and it seems like most of the health and wellness MLMs utilize hosted parties. Are there any that are more internet based that have had a long time track record! Thanks and sorry for all the questions!

Just hitting their 5-year anniversary in the MLM health and wellness niche, they have already gained so much popularity.  The company has won the Bravo Growth Award from the Direct Selling News Global.  Yes, they won this award about two years ago, and yes that is when they were just starting out.  They had so much potential, but eventually they came to booming halt, shattering into a bunch of tiny pieces (meaning a lot of MLM affiliates without jobs).
I’m from the uk. I am a Matron in a GP practice and have been approached by Arbonne. Ur video confirms most of my thoughts although doing aesthetics as a side line I though I might be able to run along side that and so not have to approach family n friends as that is horrendous!!! – i am really interested in ur local league marketing though – how would I find out more about this
The Team Beachbody coaching opportunity has forever changed my financial future and that of my family. It’s been a great experience to help people simply by sharing with them what has worked for me. Plus, I have received over 200 leads from Beachbody in the last year and a half. No sales or inventory involved and amazing tools provided by Beachbody. You don’t have to be a trainer or nutritionist, and you don’t have to already be in shape. Part of my experience has been sharing my journey with others and helping them reach their own financial goals. Only $39.95 to start. If you want more information about changing your financial future and you have a desire to help people, this is for you.

I’m looking to develop leaders and help them change their futures.
MaryAnne, I would recommend finding a product that you LOVE, a product that you feel can benefit the people around you and who you feel integrity with. You want to find their products useful so that you will feel good about buying them every month and want to share them with other. It is a business, but you also want to be able to have fun with it too
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?

Yes folks, another MLM company in the nutritional niche selling astonishing super-fruit with an overall distinctly higher price tag.  What separates them from the rest? Not sure, but interestingly enough their bottom line is impressive.  The company has grown to over 44 countries around the world, and is constantly expanding!  All this after only about 10 years in business.  On top of their successful reputation, they offer a lot of sales training and decent commission rates for their company reps, which is not seen a lot these days.

Then what? Carrie recruits new hostesses and consultants at every event and saves customers' sizes for easy reordering. She now works three nights a week, typically two at parties and one on coaching calls, encouraging her team to set tangible personal earning goals. Her own income goes toward her mortgage, saving for her kids' college tuitions and charitable donations. "It helps to sell something that every woman needs," Carrie says. "Bra measurement is a dying art." One customer was so thankful to find a good-fitting bra that she bought six. "I never really thought of myself as a salesperson, but magic happens when you find a product you completely believe in."

I am based in Europe and i was asked by loads of DS companies to join them but i didnt like the residual paychecks (topline do nothing whilst others work)MLM aspects etc UNTIL Scentsy came to Europe – it has been a blast!! We made our 99 euro starter kit fee back in one party, built a team of over 310 people in 18 months, won an incentive to Las Vegas/ Annual Mentor Award and much more.


NuSkin is another America-based multi-level marketing company based in Provo, UT, founded in 1984. It sells dietary supplements and personal care products. The company employs close to 1 million independent distributors and has over 50 international markets. However, the company was in trouble a few backs after it overstated earned incomes. Despite lots of scrutinies, the company still remains reputable.
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.

I have joined L'BRI Pure n Natural which is all aloe based skin care and makeup. I joined because the products work and saved my chemo radishes skin. My only regret is I did not know about this product earlier in my treatment. The Aloe Jelly is perfect for radiation burns. My desire is to get the word out to as many cancer patients as I can to help them through their treatments like it helped me.

Backstory: In 1999 Ginny left her full-time job in hospice management when the family moved from Arizona to Kansas so that Doug could take a new job. Bored one afternoon, she browsed through a Silpada catalog that belonged to her sister-in-law. "Halfway through, I already had a $350 wish list," she says. So Ginny decided to become a rep to earn some free bling and hopefully make friends. She took $1,000 from savings to purchase display jewelry, conservatively calculating that she'd need 12 parties to replenish the account. Her first party yielded $1,500 in sales, $450 each in commission and free jewelry, and six more bookings. Doug said, "Something tells me we've got a good thing going here."

Many of the at-home jobs you hear about are very job-like in nature. You’ll have set hours you have to work (although those hours might not be 9 am to 5 pm) and you’ll need to show up every day on schedule. These jobs are going to be really hard to pull off if you have small children at home, but if your kids are in school or at childcare for most of the day, you may be interested in a part-time remote job.
The prospect of working from home is becoming increasingly popular. According to The New York Times, a recent Gallup poll reports 43 percent of employees work remotely some of the time. Of those, the number working from home four to five days per week has jumped to 31 percent. Modern workers seem to be embracing the flexibility of working remotely, so it’s not surprising that multi-level marketing companies (MLMs) are “poised for explosive growth,” Forbes predicts.
I just wanted to give a shout out to my awesome direct sales company, Premier Designs!! We are a Christian based jewelry company selling high fashion jewelry at an affordable price. We make 50% commission off of every sale, and get paid immediately. We make 10% commission off of our 1st, 2nd and 3rd level downlines. Premier is an amazing company with the best customer service ever. The start up cost is a little higher than some of the other companies listed here, but you make it back within the first few shows. And we offer some of the most generous hostess benefits as well.
Awesome benefits to Distributrs like monthly gifts, travel and vacation incentives. I am bold to say that Swissgarde is the best MLM business in Nigeria. A lot of pyramid schemes come into this country and promise get rich quick compensation plans. No wonder they fizzle out in a short period of time after swindling people of their hard-earned money. Swissgarde has been here for over 16 years, with effective herbal products for health and beauty. The monthly pay out is so transparent that you can easily calculate your take home even before it arrives. Distributors get lots of incentives even while making money for themselves. It's an awesome opportunity for anyone who loves network marketing. You can contact me for more information.

Nikken is an MLM company created in 1975 by Isamu Masuda with the main goal of producing effective wellness solutions. Its first product, The Magstep, was focused on solving body fatigue and sore feet problems. In 1989, the company expanded to North America and has since entered new markets (countries) all around the world. The company makes about $9 billion in revenues annually.
Loved the article! I am an independent representative for Jamberry. I noticed you said they are expensive at $15 a sheet. Many people don't know that one sheet is enough to do two manicures, two pedicures, and accent nails. So really $15 is way cheaper than going to the salon. Also if you buy 3 sheets you get one sheet for free so it's an even better deal! I'm totally addicted to them and so is my little girl. They also carry gel and hand/foot care products. Thanks so much for writing such an informative article.
What I love most about Mary & Martha is that we have a ministry in the marketplace. I have built some beautiful friendships in my community and with fellow M&M consultants. Our products are beautiful and inspiring. My goal at each of my events is to BLESS those with me. B – begin in prayer, L – listen to the Holy spirit, E eat together, S serve, S share my story.
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.

Always check the official website of the MLM program you are thinking about joining. You will find some helpful information on compensations and on the products you will be promoting. A high quality MLM program will update its official site regularly, feature their best sellers, provide sellers with helpful resources on how to make sales and build a down line and have an active online community.
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. My wife and I are with It Works Global (She started it and I came on board later). I was curious why they didn’t make your list? Do you think blogging would work with this type MLM? I have only had success using Instagram and Facebook. The MLM model is not something I like but it is what is I guess. 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? Thank you. for your time. Mike

The aforementioned are some of the best MLM companies in the world currently. You need to perform some research before joining the most suitable MLM company which would depend on the products you choose to promote. Hard work and some dedication to the cause would eventually bring great results and good profits for you and your company. Check out these companies right now.
I think with direct sales, the most important things to consider are: (1) research into the company, it's policies, fees, and requirements; it's history and reputation (2) connecting with a team that will help you and cares about your own goals for your business, not their goals (3) finding a company that you are excited about and have confidence in the product and mission.
Ladies (and gents) all across the country are earning extra income and creating sustainable home businesses for themselves and their families by selling products to their friends, family and community. Gone are the days where we had to rely on a college degree to earn a sizable income. We are now able to start businesses in less than one week if you’re fast. But, if you’ve never done it before, how do you start your own business? And, how do you make your business successful?
Great article! Tons of valuable info to get people going. My daughter recently became a Young Living Essential Oil Representative and she loves it so far. Her sons have autism and the oils work great to help calm them down and also she rubs some on the belly of the one who has gastrointestinal problems and it helps him so much! My daughter made an awesome explanatory video about two of the start up kits. One was 160.00 and the other was 200 and something. I can see the difference in my daughter and my grandson who both smile a lot more. Thanks for sharing.

At the time of release for this article, not all companies in this list have released their 2017 earnings, therefore we’ve used the 2016 earnings that are available. For a few of the companies who have gone public with their 2017 stats, we’ve included that in their descriptions. When all companies have released their earnings we will uppdate this list.
The Internet is an awesome resource for info and advice from experienced sellers. Check out directselling411.com, directsaleshelpers.com and directsalestalk.com. When you've chosen a company, you'll need to buy a start-up kit so you have supplies for your first wave of get-togethers. Plan your first party in your home, then ask friends to host in theirs. They snag freebies while you work the crowd and reap commission, usually around 25% on whatever is purchased, plus extra rewards for meeting sales quotas. Once you're really moving and grooving, recruit new consultants, known as your downline. You earn anywhere from 2% to 5% on what they sell. As sales grow, you rise in rank and earnings.
