The Isreali immigrant brothers turned entrepreneurs behind Seacret Direct managed to take a cliche mall kiosk (you know, the ones that bother the crap out of you while you’re trying to shop) and turn it into a multi-million dollar global direct selling ccompany. Skincare products are pretty yawn-worthy nowadays, but Seacret’s dead sea products come with a 5,000 year history and a lot of fanfare.
I can not believe no one has mentioned Tupperware! I even read through every comment before saying this! I am a Tupperware consultant and we have been around for 60 years!

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).

Selling creative and fun fashion for girls and women, Matilda Jane offers a unique career opportunity for women who love clothing.

Clothes and accessories range from $16 – $112.
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
In order to find success with any of the top MLM opportunity, it comes down to finding a company that is the right fit for you. There is a lot to consider in the decision-making process. How long has the company been around? What is the compensation plan like? Is it an opportunity that you can feel passionate about? The answers to your questions will ultimately determine your future.

This is such a cool website! I love interior decorating and clothes. Have you heard of shop Stevie?

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!

Everything Happy is a new Direct Sales organization that sells an amazing and growing collection of Children’s products. The company was started by a 7 year old boy who wanted to bring smiles to children all over the world and after watching his sisters play with their stuffed animals and blankies, he came up with the idea for Happy Blankie and lie of incredibly soft blankies in the shape of animal faces with huge smiles on them. As our company developed we added stuffed animals and clothing and plan to add much more into the future! But, the most amazing thing about Everything Happy is the Mission of One to Love, One to Give. For every item we sell, we donate one of the exact same item to a child in need. We have donated thousands of products across the US and all over the world.

Great list and I love receiving your emails for information as a home based business. I am independent consultant with Mannatech Australasia. We offer a range of Weightloss and Wellness products based on real food technology. I invite you all to pop over to my site where i have some information about our products. I am always interested to hear from other women who would like to work from home. I have just recently learned that ‘women setting up business from home is the fastest growing sector in the Australian economy’. Thank you and all the best
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.
My name is Lesley Mcquade and I am a skin care consultant with Rodan+Fields and I have been with the company for a year. We just launched in Canada in Feb but have been in the US for 6 years. We only do online sales and I help women chose the right regimen for them. We have 4 regimens for acne, anti-aging, red sensitive skin and sun damage. We have an amazing community of women, some earning enough money to retire due to our residual income model. We even have million dollar earners. We get designer jewelry, clothes, and purses and have a Lexus car program. Luxury trips to Maui, Greece, and more! Friend me on facebook, let's network!
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.
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.

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?”
Oh, Arbonne. In the past I have had several friends and acquaintances become Arbonne consultants. Some were successful, some were not. It really came down to the time and energy they were willing (and most importantly, able) to invest in this company. Those with young kids failed. It's time consuming and requires a lot follow up with potential customers.
I am very interested in this. My only concern, which others have expressed as well, is that I have been “burned” by other companies that say it’s as easy as cutting and pasting – GWP to be exact. AFTER signing up, I found out that you have to get a domain name because anything with Get Weekly Paychecks or whatever that auto club’s name wasm would get blocked on social media and on other websites. I know this is different but it’s still a “simple cut ‘n paste” system. Are there any possible “complications” that I should be made aware of BEFORE signing up? Is there a 30-day satisfaction period?
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!

Unlike many MLMs that sell products directly to consumers, Digital Altitude sells a business system to entrepreneurs in the form of courses and methods that teach them to effectively market their own companies. While many of the packages can cost thousands of dollars, Digital Altitude offers a $1 trial, making the risk to try its product very low for the consumer.

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."
This company unbelievably made it on this list…they should not be here.  In reality, they probably should not even be operating a business following the beating they took by the SEC and the FBI in the year 2007.  Still the comeback they made was huge! The evidence is in the income disclosure statement, where it can be seen that $76k yearly was made for full-time, proven representatives.
I've been with Young Living for 2.5 years and thankfully have not experienced anything like what Beth posted above. My team is incredibly supportive and willing to share and help. You technically do not ever have to make a purchase after your initial purchase. However, to remain an active member to receive the wholesale discount, you need to make a $50 purchase within a year of your initial order. Of course there's more to it than ordering $50/year if you want to build a business, but there aren't any secrets or hidden fees.

Hello, I loved reading all this info, it was so helpful. I want badly to get out of the 2 hour commute and hours of being stuck in an office. I am a maker, a fiddler, I need a change. I am an RN and very interested in great health products. I want to find a company I can love and be proud of the products. I have seen something called 7.2 wellness ( 7point 2) but have not found anyone actually using it or selling it. Has anyone heard of this one?
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!
Founded 10 years ago, this company sells a range of unique accessories including an array of fun jewelry, pieces, trendy tunics and scarves, clutches and cross-body bags. There's also a line of fine jewelry featuring diamonds and white or yellow gold. Stylists earn 25 to 35 percent commission on sales. Starter kits to demo products run $199 for basics. You get to choose the accessories and jewelry you want for your kit, so it's completely personalized to your tastes. Sister companies, Keep Collective and EVER Skincare, offer other direct selling opportunities.

It looks like the starting price to join is around $200 and since these are products that most of us purchase you won't need to convince your customers that they need them but instead you'll focus on why they need Norwex and though you could probably sell these products through social media, it looks like they do best in home parties. But here's the awesome thing about busy moms selling cleaning products: if you host these parties in your own home, you're getting paid to clean your house. Invite your friends in after you've cooked dinner so they can get the full perspective on how these cleaners and tools work around the house.


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.
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.
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!
(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).
Kierstin, I used to sell Posh, but let it go this year due to being too busy to keep up. I will forever be a user of Never Grow Up Serum and Creme, Moisture 911 and many of the other products!!
