You'd have to be living under a rock to never run into someone involved in multi-level marketing (MLM) (sometimes referred to as direct sales or network marketing). Maybe you've been to a party where a host does a presentation about makeup, cookware, or jewelry. Perhaps on old acquaintance has shown you a plan on how you can "leverage your time and money."
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’ve been a representative of juice plus for several months now. I love their product line of organic fruits, vegetables and grains made into super convenient capsules, gummies, shakes and bars. They make adding so many healthy foods into our bodies so easy and fun! I love seeing the outcomes of people who purchase and use juice plus. It makes them happier and healthier overall!

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.

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.
Another nutritional MLM selling another magical superfruit with a marked up price tag. So what? Their story might not be interesting, but their bottom line is: they’ve expanded to 44 countries and counting after just over a decade in operation. On top of that, they provide extensive sales training and good commission rates to their reps, which is pretty rare nowadays.

I’ve also learned to lead in Mary Kay and become much more empowered as a woman. I’ve got a business I can do from anywhere, and one I’m proud to share with my friends and family. I’ve learned to help other women start their own businesses and share tools and tricks that have helped me have success. My unit grows as a team and works toward becoming a successful group of Mary Kay consultants. The Mary Kay products are known and loved by many so it’s fun to share all the new beauty and skincare lines as well as the cherished standbys that customers love.
I do not work for any of these companies. In fact, as of right now, I've never even worked in direct-sales. So, though I have researched these companies, what I've written here is merely my own observations and opinions and a list of companies I personally deemed the most trustworthy after much time culling the masses. I'm not guaranteeing that anyone will find themselves rolling in sweet, sweet cash by joining any of these companies.
Employees were invited to complete an anonymous and confidential survey. A certain percentage of employees at each company, based on size, had to complete the survey in order for the company to reach the threshold to be included. After the survey period was over, the team at Quantum calculated the responses to determine overall scoring and ranking. Only companies who met the threshold determined by Quantum as the baseline for a Best Places to Work environment were announced as Honorees for 2018.

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?
"We're comedians, so the primary objective is to make people laugh...we believe that comedy is unifying and I love that we can laugh at ourselves together," said Dearing. "Direct sales are here to stay and that's not a bad thing...I know lots of women doing it right now, and I've purchased products from them actually. Our video was talking about the women who pretend to be friends to make a sale."
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.
TrūAura Beauty is an incredible direct sales company that just started in February so the opportunity is HUGE! TrūAura offers skincare and cosmetics that are clean, natural and filled with pre and probiotics that naturally balance out your skins microbiome. No matter your skin type, TrūAuras products work with your skins custom PH levels to give you a soft, firm, glowing complexion.
Our starter kit is $99 and we offer you the option of hosting a party in order to  put the hostess rewards towards the purchase of the kit. The average home party is a $500 party which would earn you $90 in free product that you could decide to cash in for a $90 kit coupon so the up-front investment is incredibly reasonable, and potentially free (minus tax & shipping).
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 initially spoke to a retired friend who said she joined a health and beauty direct selling company as a means of meeting new people. She had recently remarried and moved to a new location, so she combined the practice of meeting new people with making extra money.  After almost a decade in the business, she’s built a small niche business with family and friends despite switching to from one company to another competitor after three years.

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."
When I first joined I only planned to be a consultant until we got back on our feet after my husbands job loss. But, I fell in love with the mission of the company, the products, and all of the friends I had made along the way. Plus no 9-5 job can compare to the flexibility of direct sales! Now, I have an amazing team who is truly helping make a difference in the world.

Hi there :) another great company to work for is Le-Vel. It’s the first company to ever have wearable nutrition that helped with mental clarity, appetite control and is time released.. We offer so many more Greta products and have helped thousands of people. It’s great for energy, body aches and pains, headaches/migraines and weight management and best it’s 100% natural, gluten free and gmo free. They also have a car allowance of up to $800 once you reach a certain amount a month.. Check it out http://www.thethrivedream.le-vel.com
So many great ideas!! I didn’t see Pampered Chef or Lia Sophia though. I don’t see either of those, but know people who do. I am a Team Beachbody Independent Coach – I love it. What better way to get into great health and stay that way – healthy and sustainable! The best part is all the people that you get to meet and getting excited for them when they can do things that they couldn’t do before. Personally, I have Multiple Sclerosis and through the Shakeology and workout programs, I have lost 25 pounds and gained the nourishment that my body needed for energy to get me through the day. MS fatigue is horrid, but Shakeology fights it more than my script for fatigue does. Amazing how I feel. I’d love to help others find their personal best – if any one wants to have one on one support! It’s free for support. :) Just join as a member (there is a free option) http://www.lisalesliefitness.com. Or check out my blog – http://www.lisalesliefitnessblog.com Again, thanks for the post!
A benefit to becoming a consultant for Usborne books in the US is that the company is based out of the UK and their product is not available in the states except for the limited titles found in brick and mortar book stores and the small (outdated) selection on Amazon. So by being a direct-seller of this product, you have a leg up on the retail competition as you'll be offering new titles at the best possible price.
Because anyone can do it! I started the business after I had my 4th baby and was able to do so much of the business from my smart phone. But it was also easy to meet up with other moms for a play date and share the oils. Many moms are looking for natural options to help their families and essential oils are perfect. They can help babies sleep, give moms a natural option when they feel overwhelmed, help with the immune system, and so much more! Plus, it’s the type of product that people will continue to purchase without having to keep bugging them. doTERRA is one of the fastest growing companies right now and this really is the best time to start. In just 2.5 years, my husband was able to leave his engineering job thanks to doTERRA. And I did all that while staying home with my four kiddos. The opportunity is amazing!
This was the most useless, uninformative, article I have wasted my time with. I'm scratching my head right now, as I thought I was clicking on an article that someone actually did research of "the top 20 best direct sales company's", not : "um, I know nothing about direct sales, nor did any research but I will name 20 companies, I may or may not know anything about".... numbering them, then writing paragraphs of blah, blah, did not even bother googling company for facts, but you could, as I'm not that smart. I really hope you don't get paid for crap like this and if you do .... please share that secret. I would love to write articles (I would even do legit research and be knowledgeable) and get paid doing so. ** 100% serious if you are making $$ off this article please share your secret, as this is a very disappointing, misleading article full of paragraphs of crap nonsense from you. I initially clicked as I was an independent consultant for Partylite (surprised not mentioned however knock off cheap quality scentsy was) and looking if PL was still the best option to make $ PT and possibly get information on 20 companies that "are the best" with info like start up costs, commission %, pyramid formed companies vs non, web site maintenance costs, consumer interest, background info more specific than they have been around since the 1800s?!? SMH... what a waste of time to read this. If I Google PL it gives me that info and you misled me to think you did the research for me. So please let me know how I can make $ after I do it by writing a better article then this. Good luck!
This can seem like an overwhelming task initially. Just because of the sheer volume of direct sales companies that are out there. Let's break it down into an easier task. I've found over the years from my own personal experience, as well as talking with 100's of other men and women in direct sales that by asking yourself certain questions, you can narrow down your search immensely. And take your time – mull it over. Sleep on it.
The company. Too many people get lured by the hype, without stopping to consider the company or its product/service. What does the company sell and can you get excited about it? What are the compensation plan, marketing system, and policies, and can you work with it? Is it a member of the DSA, and through your research, been found to be a legitimate company?
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.
This might not look great on a resume. If you think working for an MLM company is a way to build your resume or patch a hole in your work experience, think twice about that idea, experts say. Does direct selling look good on a resume? "Probably not," Mariano says. "And the reason I say that is the reputation of direct selling in the marketplace is not typically that great."

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.

Thank you for this list, Holly. It took me two companies before finding this company and I have found my home. We have QUALITY and AFFORDABLE green products that actually work. Everyone wants to live in a safer environment. The products had an amazing impact on my health. Best part is the money is already in everyone’s budget, so just switch and shop in a better, safer store.
We also offer a monthly prize club subscription. If you subscribe, each month, you are sent a 3 wick candle, with a ring valued at $40, and 2 essential bath bombs (they do not contain jewlery) in addition, you are given a map with a post card and stamp for the state that the candle represents! That is a lot of fun for the family!! Then you are entered into a monthly drawing for a spin on the wheel for prizes!! April’s winner won $1000 gift!
In just 30 years, Melaleuca has grown from a little startup in rural Idaho to a billion-dollar enterprise doing business in 19 countries around the globe. It has become one of the largest catalog and online wellness retailers in North America. And it is the largest manufacturer of consumer packaged goods in the Northwest. Today, more than a million customers shop with Melaleuca every month.
MLM and direct selling programs also offer very low barriers into entrepreneurship, often providing training, support, and ample encouragement along the way.  As retirees begin to realize they need activities that keep them busy, relevant, in good health, and connected to others, the time, energy and cost to participate in these kinds of companies make them very appealing to large segments of the population caught up in these dynamics.
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.

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.
All you need to do is open an account on eBay and start listing items that you can find on Amazon for much cheaper.  And when the customer buys the item on eBay from you, you simply go on Amazon, place the order and have your customers shipping address.  I personally made my first sale on eBay after following DS Dominations step by step training in 24 hours of me joining.
