Well done Melaleuca, they hit over a billion dollars in yearly sales…there’s a reason they are a part of the select few considered to be at the top. Adding to this is their longevity, because they’ve been in the MLM industry for over 20 years, and now they’ve reached the status of the “largest online wellness shopping club” (which can sound fancier than it is, because are they aren’t selling anything more than a fantasy diet pill).

There’s not necessarily a single answer to this question because your earnings depend largely on one important factor: you. If you’re willing to put in the work, and you are working with an MLM that fits your interests and passion, you’ll probably find yourself earning a pretty penny. However, if you choose an MLM that has a mission and products that you don’t have interest in, then your chances for success are far lower.
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."

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.
Do not expect the owner or support team of an MLM program to talk to you about the downsides of selling products for them since their main goal is to recruit you. If you come across reviews or blog posts about a specific program, take the time to do some research to find out who wrote this content and to check whether or not they are affiliated with the program.

Since joining Mary Kay, I’ve met some absolutely incredible women. We’ve shared successes and failures in our weekly meetings. My sales leader has even customized the weekly meetings when I’m traveling so I can meet with my group by webinar. I don’t feel alone as a Mary Kay consultant I know I can reach out to my friends who are also Mary Kay reps, whenever I’m having difficulties. They completely understand me and help me get through whatever barriers I’m having in my business.

I’m torn. I use Rodan+Fields but never considered being a distributor. Then a friend of mine introduced me to Jeunesse and got me fired up to be part of his team. I said “yes”. But now I’m wondering if the company is right for me because a) I read some negative stuff online about the company, the products, lawsuits, however the team is amazing! b) I actually really like what R+F has done for my skin therefore I feel I connect with the company more.
If you're a weirdo like me who gets excited about a great deal on microfiber cloths, or feels the warm fuzzies while filling up a rustic galvanized bucket with chemical free suds, then you're going to love Norwex. From dryer balls and mattress sprays to chenille mop pads and cutting boards made from rice husks, Norwex's home and personal products offer something earth-friendly for everyone in your green-centric circle.
Lu La whaaa? If you love bright, flashy and fun leggings then take a look at Buskins Leggings which sells patterned leggings for a fraction of the price of other MLM clothing companies and offers customers the opportunity to find and buy their favorite prints from the your own personalized Buskins website. That means you don't have to spend days sorting through inventory and creating outfits out of mismatched patterns and sizes and hope that they catch one of your FB friends' eyes and budget before shipping off bundles of product. You're busy. You don't have time for that. (Time is money, remember?)

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.”
How MLM companies are NOT considered Pyramid organizations is beyond me! They are all scams by the very nature of their organization structure. Those who start or get in early benefit directly from the efforts of those beneath them, forever. Not to mention the fact that most product sold through any of these MLM organization’s is to the dealer network itself. The top dogs are making money regardless as long as there is new blood coming in. And the best way to keep new blood coming in is to incentivize those at the lower middle and below to continue recruiting to build “a network of their own”. And those on the verge of “breaking through” who have already invested a small fortune in products along the way that are sitting on their pantry shelves NEED to keep recruiting. The very thing that differentiates a Pyramid scheme from an MLM is that an MLM sells an actual product. That is it. It doesn’t determine who that product is sold to as it should since we know that most product is sold to the worker bees and not to the general public for long.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading your mlm breakdowns and the comments, thank you Jeremy. Had a successful mlm business but had to make a decision to give it up or have a breakdown due to ongoing upline bullying so at a big crossroads at the minute. being an ‘older’ lady here in the north of England doesn’t bode well for conventional job hunting in the current economic climate so some serious thinking needed on my part and QUICKLY lol. Thanks again Jeremy x

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 think that all the suggestions you made are great – however there is one I believe was overlooked, such as ‘promote other people products’. In this new generation of online technology, there are several ways to make money online. The great thing about this is that all you need is a blog and then you sign up for free accounts at clickbank and commission junction. Once you do that you can simply choose products to promote on your blog for free and if someone purchases the product you get a good portion of the sale. It’s definitely an option to look into being that you don’t need any money to get started.

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.
Ben Thataway, a CEO benefits forever off of his employees and the employees can spend a lifetime and never make the kind of money they can make in network marketing. I know someone personally that beat out 80,000 representatives, did not join the company untli 3 years after it launched and became the top income earner. What you’ve heard, or what you think you know about network marketing is false.
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.
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.

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.


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.
Diets…fad diets, new diets, old diets…it’s an endless story especially in the 2000’s, and this company is one of those companies.  The FDA had a run-in with these guys and they are not in the greatest standings with the BBB either, which seem to be the norm with weight loss pills of the “magical results” variety.   Well the good news for this business is that they’ve managed to keep trending for 5 years (that’s a pretty good streak), and the company reps are earning a colossal 50% in commissions.
This "faith based" home décor company may be kind of a niche market (the majority of it's products are plastered in bible verses and spiritual inspirations) but marketed towards the right social circle, Mary and Martha home parties might appeal to brides-to-be looking to decorate their new abode or you might try throwing virtual parties around the holidays.
(Update: In April of 2017 there was an article posted about this company, so as of May 2017 it is unsure if this company has gone under.)  First off, to sign up and become an affiliate of the company you might do a double or triple or quadruple take at the startup cost (which is almost 4 figures).  However, you do get to truly set up your own business, because you can set the price on all the products you sell.  If you have that business talent to make consumers buy the products (which are legit btw) you can certainly make that start-up cost back in no time.  This company has also been achieving some high praise by being the recipient of many awards (including a growth award from the Direct Selling Association).
Hello Holly! My name is Heather Swarthout and I am an Independent Consultant of Pampered Chef. I sell cookware, bakeware, pantry seasonings, cookbooks, pots, pans, entertaining items and more.

I am a Pink Zebra consultant, which is a home fragrance company. Their sprinkles are a unique scented wax melt that allows the consumer to combine fragrances to create her own custom blend. All sprinkles are made in America out of soft soy wax and high quality fragrance oils. We have 2 different start kits, one is $99 and the other is $199 but we are always running join specials or coupons! Right now to join it’s only $74. If you’re interested or want more information email me atbilliegoble50@hotmail.com or visit my website! https://pinkzebrahome.com/beadswithbillie

First, it's $99 to get started. That includes everything you need to get your business up and running, including catolog and products to try yourself or sell. In order to stay an active consultant, you must be active ($200 in sales) one month in a revolving 3 month period (ex: if you were active in July, you would have to have another active month by the end of October at least). And after your first 3 months, it's $15 a month to keep your website up.

If you remember those ads for P90X and Insanity, you are not alone because they were something to rave about at one point in time.  They have dropped off a tad, but nonetheless Beachbody is still a well-known name.  The company is so focused on their products, very few people know that they are a network marketing company.  Which can be seen as an advantage for the company’s survival, but they are questionable as a “hot offer” to advertise.
