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.
Just a quick comment about the Rodan and Fields info...the initial sign up fee is $45. The other "options" are business kits, for people who want to purchase products. The monthly $25 for the website is optional as well. And the $80 is for products that consultants use personally, also an OPTION. We NEVER CARRY INVENTORY! All sales ship direct to the customer from corporate. So, minimum is $45...the rest is all optional! Nmaio.myrandf.biz 

Excited to hear that Watkins is one of your faves. More n more I am loving my Watkins business and family. Our sign up in June is a mere 29.95 and that includes personalized website. You are free from there to do whatever you wish with no stressful monthly quotas or autoships. We are soon to celebrate 150 years in business - now that is legitimacy and longevity hard to match. Thanks for your article and your endorsement of Watkins!
There are no monthly quotas to remain active as a Compassionate Entrepreneur. You just need to have an order placed through your website (in any amount) once every six months to continue to stay active. There is also a $13.95 a month fee for running our personalized website and marketing portal (which collects customer/hostess data and sends out automatic emails 3x a month), but the first month is free.
Statistics show that Mary Kay Consultants are the highest paid business women in America. 70% of the women in America who make over $100K/yr have a MK business and 2% of Americans are self-made millionaires and of that 2%, 80% are men and 20% are women. Of that 20%, 80% are with Mary Kay. The stats don't lie. They are also one of the ONLY companies that do ALL of their formulating, designing and creating in Dallas, TX. So, American made and all done in-house. They do not pay a third party to create their products for them. Pretty incredible, I'd say. This company also has 2 skincare lines that have earned the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, meaning GH tested it and everything that the product claims, it actually does...how sad that only 1 other skincare line outside of MK can make that claim???!!! REALLY?? Shouldn't ALL skincare lines be able to make that claim?? MK also has the lowest attrition rate of all of the direct sales companies. Let the facts speak!

It Works is a direct sales company founded in 2001 by Mark and Cindy Pentecost that deals with skin care and nutrition products. The privately owned company got its breakthrough because of its flagship products like the Ultimate Body Applicator and other anti-aging and nutritional supplements designed to make it easy for consumers to stay fit and healthy. The company, which employs over 10,000 people, generates over $500 million in annual revenues annually.
As a sales consultant, you will be paid a commission for each product that you sell. Some direct sales companies will also pay you a commission on products sales from consultants who you referred into the program. Besides being able to work from home, you will also be able to choose your working hours and the type of products that you sell. Many moms opt to do their home shopping parties at night or on the weekends when Dad can watch the kiddos.
There are haters and there are devout followers of Rodan and Fields products but it's undeniable that this company is booming. It originated in department stores but was pulled nearly a decade ago and converted to a direct-sales company. If it sounds familiar that's because Rodan and Fields is the same company that created and sold the Proactiv line (which was personally heaven-sent for my crappy post-high school skin. Though I no longer need to use it, I credit the product with my now scar-free skin).
MLM has stretched its sticky fingers out into just about every product market out there, so it’s kinda hard to do something new nowadays. But Jamberry Nails did it. Their adhesive, custom nail designs BLEW UP when they hit the direct sales floor. They built up an army of over 100,000 consultants in the time it takes most people to get a mediocre pay raise at their 9-5.
(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.
They also offer a $100, $500, $1000, $3500 products which they offer 100% commissions on.  The great thing about Empower Network is their products are training products.  You can buy their products to build ANY network marketing company out there.  Without Empower Network, I wouldn’t be making the money I am today with the knowledge and skill set to succeed online as well.

The product is the revolutionary and the REAL DEAL! It is going viral with a jump from 1,500 to 12,000 reps in 3 months with organic growth. I built the best system in the biz and it’s free for my entire team. No upsells or nonsense, just a cutting edge (custom built) team site to help my team crush this. Easier to let you look, just follow the link. Cheers, Ray

These nonsalaried workers may be stay-at-home parents, college students or part-time workers hoping to make money by selling products such as vitamins and makeup to their friends and family. But experts note that just selling products is typically not enough to make a profit, and workers are encouraged to recruit a "downline," a team of underlings from whose sales they also earn a commission, creating a pyramid-shaped compensation structure.
Odds are, somebody in your life works or has worked for a multi-level marking company, called MLM companies for short. If you’ve ever had a friend on social media invite you to join their sales team or attend an online shopping party, it probably had connections to an MLM company. Some people think of MLM companies as some opportunistic scam, but that actually couldn’t be further from the truth. Learning a little bit about how these companies can help you understand why they provide a wealth of opportunity for income and professional growth. In fact, you’re probably very familiar with many of the best MLM companies in the business without even knowing it.
I have been looking over your sites and viewing the many videos. It sounds appealing however there are many many . . . many lead generators out there, some that are well established (and very good at what they do) and so my question is why would I pay you to train me for 5 weeks and think I could compete (let alone generate income) in the short period you mention?

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.

Long before becoming a billionaire, and even before starting Omnilife, Jorge Vergara sold tacos on the streets of Mexico. He then secretly brought in Herbalife supplements into the country.  While there, he was able to get the Mexican government to change regulations put in place for their nutritional products division.  Talk about a life filled with action…this guy could probably sell his life story and make millions more (he could probably win several awards, side note: he’s actually a film producer casually on the side).
I disagree with that jeremy i would recommend MLM over working a Corporate 9 t0 5 $300 weekly paycheck job anyday. I quit my job for mlm i mean why not recommend MLM when you can make 10X the more money than you can at any stupid corporate america job..Working for people are for losers and i will defend mlm for the rest of my life bro you need to get your facts straight and look on youtube to see people buying new mercedez benzs and rolls royce working with mlm
Rodan and Fields is committed to bringing minimally 1 new product a year to market. With product and market growth, along with global expansion, it is an unprecedented opportunity that is too good to pass up. I mean, you are basically going to be getting paid to wash your face, talk about it, and help other people get the best skincare of their lives. This is the business that could change everything.

I sell Pink Zebra which I would like to add to the list. Our signature item is our scented soy wax "Sprinkles" (melts) and we have much more.

Customers love the wide variety of products we offer and also the versatility. You can mix Sprinkles together to create your own unique scents. Curious? Here's my website: http://www.pinkzebrahome.com/azpzsprinkles


After months of research, I finally decided on Fundanoodle and became a Fundanoodle ambassador. Fundanoodle is an education readiness program (selling activity books and games) geared towards 3 - 7 years olds to develop motor skills and prepare them for success in school. The products were designed by pediatric occupational therapists and elementary school teachers. This product is a hit with the homeschool crowd, and many parents with children with special needs especially ASD have found these products to be very useful. However, Fundanoodle products are designed for all little learners!


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.
Who wants to get fit, look younger, and lose weight? Jeunesse, meet your global target market: everyone. With their crazy sales numbers, I wouldn’t be surprised if they are selling to just about everyone in the world. Jeunesse routinely make the list for the top 20 MLMs in the world, and they’re doing about $1.4 billion in annual revenue. Not only are you selling a very well-trusted product, but the sign up cost is also one of the lowest out there ($30).
My wife has been a Mary Kay consultant for a little over a year and loves it. It does cost $99 for a starter kit, which is a one time purchase, and an order of $225 in inventory once every quarter to stay active. Staying active means keeping a 50% discount on any inventory you order. This means a 50% commission on anything you sell. Compared to a 25% commission selling Rodan & Fields. I am not bashing Rodan & Fields I was just using them as a comparison. I see a lot of negative opinions about direct sales companies and even sites devoted to bashing Mary Kay and I just don't get it. If you decide Mary Kay is not for you for any reason they will buy back all unused inventory you have a home for 90% of what you paid for up to a year. In what other business in the world can you risk so little for a possibility in a new career or part-time income. I have sifted through online comments from new Mary Kay consultants giving up completely after one party gets cancelled or doesn't go well. When you join Mary Kay you become a small business owner. People need to do their research and not be so bitter when they themselves fail or give up.
With such a unique name, this semi-new company that falls into the MLM niche of cosmetics, and it does so stunningly and “Younique-ly”.  Their social media game is also innovative and strong, and not as annoying as some others.  They use real customers as their models and who wouldn’t want the chance at 15 minutes of fame?? This company has become one of those company’s people are buzzing about and they credited as one of the most buzz-worthy MLMs of our time.
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.
This company was living life in the lime light, and they were trending for a good while there. They deflated out a bit, however they are still pretty big.  There are over 50 countries currently promoting their immunity-boosting nutritional products, and the rave reviews from the former and current associates makes things seem pretty superb.  Although it’s mentioned that the commissions aren’t great, but maybe that’s okay as long as their reps have continued happiness?

When I first started with the “blog thing” I felt really scared because I didn’t know what to do with ad networks. However, I looked up for information and found Adtomatik. I really wanted wolrdwide reach, and adtomatik had it. I really wanted revenues and high fill rates as weell as the best eCPM, Adtomatik also had that. Since then, I am using it and the results are the best I could’ve ever imagined!!! Totally recommended!


You should check out SeneGence. The company has been around for about 20 years now, but it is really getting a foothold in the beauty industry now. We have grown 2000% in the last 12 months and are up to over 125,000 distributors now. It costs $55 to sign up and that gets you a 20-50% discount on the products, based on cumulative sales each month. The opportunity to make money is great, as you can make money on retail sales and commissions (straight commission and group sales volume bonus). Worth a look!
I first learned about cabi in 2010 after being invited to their fall fashion show, The Scoop. After getting to fully experience the cabi brand, I was hooked. They have some of the most flattering and stylish clothes I’ve seen for women. Not only are their clothes fabulous, they have one of the highest retention rates in the direct sales industry. With cabi, Stylists can earn 25 – 33 percent on personal sales.
This company seems really awesome to me as a busy mom because obviously you're not going to hold inventory or even parties (unless you're also going to market Gardenuity's small "Garden Inspired Living" line of teas, home decor and home fragrances). The stock seems seasonal, giving customers a reason to peek back each season to see what they can grow next. So, your compensation is based on your ability to market the brand/product and from there you'll earn a percentage of the sales. But what IS that percentage? It's not clear. I have a message into the Gardenuity customer service and will be back ASAP with an update.
You could definitely sell this product through social networking. In the end, parties may cost you since you'd have to use the expensive products as demonstrations. I have never used the product myself but I have friends who do and most of them say with a little practice it's easy to apply--though not everyone agrees. Sell this product at your own risk and if it doesn't work out for you at least you have some sweet nail products to keep for yourself.
With so many of the fastest growing MLM companies pushing to have you join, it can get confusing when you’re looking at MLM products, compensation plans, where to get leads, marketing tips, and most of all – can I really make money with this? What you need to remember, is that the best MLM to join in your situation is going to come down to one thing – finding a product and a business you are excited about sharing! 

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!
I’m an Independent Consultant for Thirty One Gifts. Absolutely the best direct selling company I’ve been a part of. We celebrate women as well as family. The company also gives to charities.

Please take a moment to check it out. $99 special to join with extra incentives going on now to help with the Holiday cash flow for you and your family. If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact me at dwawhi@aol.com.
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.

The reality is, only a tiny percentage of representatives actually realize the high earnings advertised in MLM promotional materials and at meetings. Some say the big earners got in early and are positioned at the top; however, like other MLM data, this is misleading. First, it suggests that getting in early is all you need to do to be successful, which of course is false. Success comes from work. Second, many companies have been around for over 30 years, and some of their top selling reps joined last year or five years ago.
Isagenix’s vision is to impact world health and free people from physical and financial pain, and in the process, create the largest health and wellness company in the world. It’s a bold vision, but one they are quickly working towards! They’ve been featured the Inc Top 5000 fastest growing companies for 10 consecutive years and have generated over $4 billion in cumulative global sales – with no signs of slowing down!

The reason I chose this company is because I knew a lot of my friends and family knew about the brand and already bought the products whenever they could find a consultant. So I figured why not just have them all buy from me instead? It has gone wonderfully so far and I'm even in a retail store now. I really just wanted a way to make some extra money from home as a stay at home mom with a 1 and a half year old and another on the way! Email me at adrienne@oru.edu if you're interested in becoming a consultant which is basically free this month!
The interviews and psychological connections lead me to conclude that MLM and NM companies, along with other small businesses opportunities, are important considerations for anyone entering retirement.  In fact, I believe the concept of starting a business for retirement income will become one of the most significant trends impacting retirement in the 21st century.  But it has to start with redefining entrepreneurship and framing it into a retirement lifestyle.  That means helping people find ways to turn a passion, hobby, or personal desire into extra money in their pocket… not to mention helping people see the importance of  planning for the non-financial aspects of retirement such as replacing a work identity, staying relevant and connected, as well as keeping mentally and physically fit.

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.

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

MLM has stretched its sticky fingers out into just about every product market out there, so it’s kinda hard to do something new nowadays. But Jamberry Nails did it.

They built up an army of over 100,000 consultants in the time it takes most people to get a mediocre pay raise at their 9-5.

When you’re asking people to volunteer their time to sell a product or service, the experience needs to be fun. As adults, we all feel tremendous pressure in multiple areas of our lives. If a network marketing company starts to feel stale, unappreciative and a little corporate-y, consumers will invest their energies somewhere else. As Millennials hit the scene, it’s important to understand that they’re placing less emphasis on financial metrics. Companies need to always maintain a sense of humor and constantly show appreciation for their sales force. When a company starts leading with an iron fist and sends out warnings to fence in a sales force, it almost always backfires. People need to have fun with the brand and fun sharing the brand with others. If it’s painful, forget about it.
The direct sales business is a hot industry right now as more and more men and women find solace in self-employment. And with amazingly trendy direct sales companies sprouting up throughout the nation, being a direct sales consultant is starting to look more and more fun, not to mention a good source of income and an opportunity for career flexibility.

Just a quick comment about the Rodan and Fields info...the initial sign up fee is $45. The other "options" are business kits, for people who want to purchase products. The monthly $25 for the website is optional as well. And the $80 is for products that consultants use personally, also an OPTION. We NEVER CARRY INVENTORY! All sales ship direct to the customer from corporate. So, minimum is $45...the rest is all optional! Nmaio.myrandf.biz 

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.
This company is still able to shine through, even though they are in tough competition with other well-known competitors such as Mary Kay and Avon.  This company does promote their focus on having cruelty-free products for consumers and au natural ingredients, and from their stand point it looks like they could sling shot into the league of their rivals at any time.  You can anticipate to watch them enter the billion-dollar yearly revenue stream pretty soon!
And we are one of only four companies to hit the $1billion dollar mark before the end of the fourth year. And it practically sells itself. Whereas other companies require multiple products to see results, our NeriumAD (the most popular product we sell) is a one product system. You can check out my webpage at http://www.kristychurch.nerium.com or on Facebook in the group Nerium With Kristy.
I am currently a pharmacy student with a CRAZY schedule. I recently decided to try out Advocare products and I got AMAZING results! I wanted something to give me energy that didn’t include sodas or coffee so I found Spark! It has completely replaced all other caffeinated products in my house. I no longer experience the crash after too much caffeine and I don’t feel jittery like I would with coffee! When I realized how great Spark was I decided to try out the 24 day challenge and I lost 7 pounds and inches off my waist. I feel so much better and I am finally enjoying a clean, healthy lifestyle!

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.
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.
But please do a little research before you blanket insult an entire industry or business model. I am a single mother with a 6 figure income because of MLM, nearly twice that when I’m actively working my business with both of the companies I represent, and while not everyone has the skill set to succeed in this business, the potential is certainly there, for those that do.
They’re sliding, though. Revenue is falling in North America and their sales force is shrinking. Revenue slid 19% in 2013 and 7% in Mexico. Skip ahead to July 2015 and revenue is still spiraling downward, with a 17% drop (5). Analysts blame Avon’s failure to maintain a strong identity for its products as well as the strong dollar. Lesson: Always re-create yourself.

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.


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.
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.
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.
