We proudly said no to Network Marketing for 23-years because of the way it was done by others. When we finally chose-- we chose carefully and try to lead gracefully in the 32-countries we support. This truly is a profession of the future. It will be anazing to see who aligns themselves in upcoming years to build retirement. With 49% of people in the US alone living paycheck to paycheck, this profession is on the verge of exploding.

I am stylist for Color Street Nails. It’s 100% nail polish, no dry time, no heating, no smudges and make in USA. Ladies are so amazed the first time they try it, it practically sells itself.

Keeping with the trend I have here, yes this is another MLM company operating under the nutritional niche; and it comes to us from Utah.  They have a specific product that’s help made them well-known: seed nutrition and the “black cumin seed,” which evidently is very potent for helping fight cancer cells and encourages anti-oxidant benefits, among other things.

Cookie Lee Jewelry was built on the concept of empowering women to reach for their dreams. The company offers fabulous and one-of-a-kind pieces and consultants earn 50% gross profit from sales made. To start, you pay $60 for the business tools and have your choice of spending $500 for $1,000 of jewelry, or spending $99 for a pre-pack of the current season’s jewelry with a retail value of $200.

"Motherhood is hard, and it's really hard to find time for friendship honestly, so when someone you think is a friend is actually trying to sell you something — that hurts," said Fortin. "Our MLM friends legit love the products they sell and need to make money. We get that, but let's please be genuine about our intentions with one another up front."

Lorene Hochstetler, from Ohio, recommends keeping your current job while slowly making the transition into MLM.  She’s been able to replace her full-time income but explains, “It didn’t happen overnight, and I still work every day.  I am very disciplined with my business and wake up every day knowing what I have to do in order to succeed at this.  You have to treat it like a business and be willing to follow advice from others who have made it.”
Norwex is also a great company to do direct sales with. Based out of Norway, the company has been around for over 20 years. They produce high quality microfiber cloths that can be used to clean your entire house with only water. Their mission is to reduce the use of toxic chemicals. 35% commission. No monthly dues or sales goals. They’ll send you your starter kit at no cost. All you have to do is sell $2000 in your first 90 days. If you don’t meet that goal you do have to pay $200 for your starter kit, but there are no other obligations. Lots of great incentives
Hi Jesse, That does help some…thanks for answering my questions. My other questions are: I am not connected with nearly as many people as it sounds like you are. How can I be successful in this business? Also, morally I struggle with charging someone more money for something that they can get somewhere else? I know…not much of a business acumen. Lol thanks,
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.

I love love love this article! I’m a business growth coach who works with small business owners and often leaders from other MLM’s. From time to time I’ll get someone who has been struggling significantly even getting started and I find that it’s sheer absence of knowledge of the numbers. They are still under the impression that if I get three, and they get three then we’re all going to be millionaires. It’s very sad but the truth is not being told. Being in an MLM is hard. But it is very doable. I have had significant success in the past, while I am not in an MLM now. Nor do I want to be, you must be all In to make it work. Thank you for sharing this. I would love to interview you on one of my webinars
I have been running a home based business for 2 yrs now and want encourage any woman or man out there thinking about it to stop thinking and take action now.

As I write this I'm just a couple of weeks away from beginning our first year of homeschooling and I'm so excited. Why? Because learning toys and activities are even more fun when you're almost 30, apparently. Fundanoodle is a company that gives busy moms like homeschool moms the chance to earn some extra income selling products they themselves use every day, including interactive books and activities that give kids a chance to practice their reading, spelling and writing skills along with other important developmental goals.
Thanks for this post. Very helpful. I do like direct sales; one reason for this is that it helps keep alive that age-old tradition of people interacting face-to-face (rather than mainly through texting and social media). For that reason, I think MLMs should target the lonely Millennials. Anyway, I was a member/distributor of Advocare for over 10 years and still miss the products and the activities in the company, now that I am temporarily out. I still plan to sign up again when I can afford it (long story–I’ll spare you). I am now involved in Melaleuca, and I must say in their defense that Melaleuca’s products are actually not overpriced. Because Preferred Customers are not only not expected, but also NOT ALLOWED to turn around and sell the products at the retail price, everyone pays the same low prices. (Granted, one can indeed go to the website and buy directly from the company if they do not want to become a Preferred Customer. Why would someone do that when the annual membership is only $19? Only if they do not want to commit to the minimum monthly requirement for Preferred Customers.) Public, keep this in mind! Don’t be fooled by the rebels who are selling old Melaleuca products on Amazon for way above the retail price!! You’re much better off buying fresh products directly from the factory, even if you pay retail price. Just sayin. My big question: What about Tupperware? I have been a Tupperware consultant for about 6 months, and I have found it to be extremely difficult to keep business going. The directors training me have said that Tupperware is the second most widely recognized brand name in the world, second only to Coca-Cola. If that is the case, why is it so hard to find people willing to host Tupperware parties? Why does it seem so hard to sell? Also, is it just me…Or, does Tupperware’s compensation plan stink?
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!
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.
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.
In 2003, Thirty One Gifts was founded by Cindy Monroe who felt there was a need for women who didn’t have time to visit gift shops and boutiques. Thirty-One Consultants offer totes, purses, thermal bags, and organizing items at home parties, catalog parties and online. Invest in this MLM for just $99 and receive the Enrollment Kit which includes $400 worth of new products and business supplies – everything you need to successfully start your business.
How about the time factor? Well, so far it's working great for me. I do a combo of online and in-home parties - and both are really successful. I like that I don't have to leave home for online parties and I can have them with people far and wide, not just local. But I love in home parties for the face-to-face fun. Within the company, we have lots of people who exclusively hold online parties - even high-level leadership - which is doable and successful when you aren't spammy and have a good outline (I make my own outline each month and share it with my team members).
The gift company Thirty-one was founded in 2003. They offer a huge number of attractive home organizing and personalized products including storage bins, purses and totes, wallets, lunch and picnic thermals, and customizable pillows and wall art. Consultants make 25 percent on every sale through face-to-face, online, and catalogue parties. Starter kits are $99. If you become a leader to new consultants, you'll earn a percentage of their commission as well. There's also a monthly subscription fee for a personalized website and emails to customers.
If 18,000,000 Americans consider MLM their careers, yet only 0.3% actually succeed beyond average corporate America wages, do people realize that means there are barely more than 50,000 Americans “living the MLM dream” and almost 17,950,000 who just help the 50,000? Sad. I was part of team Tupperware decades ago because I wanted to buy Tupperware for my home for less. It took me about 14 months as a stay at home mother (never recruited, never pressured, my distributor didn’t like my attitude) to accomplish that task and then walked away. I live in rural America where so many fall to MLMs attempting to climb out of paycheck to paycheck living (very few good jobs) like the saved into a baptismal pool. “Disciples” is the perfect word. MLMs are just not thriving here. How many Americans can one recruit/sell to for building a business in a rural county with less than 20,000 other Americans of which 75% live below the poverty line? I see MLM victims everywhere.
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!
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.
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).
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!
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.
If you’re thinking about building your business online, this company is internet friendly. It’s not stuck in the 1980s with crazy rules that prohibit you from doing anything online. With your own free website you get your own affiliate links that you can promote on social media or on your website. You can also use the free capture pages and auto-responders.

Start making money by promoting THE top brand in baby carriers that has been rapidly growing its store by including quality baby products parents can rely on. Ergobaby revolutionized how we carry babies back in 2002. Now, with their affiliate program you can refer sales and earn commissions! Do you wear your baby in an Ergo Carrier? If so, when friends ask about it, share your affiliate link with them!
If you want to learn about the wonderful (and massive) world of internet marketing from the pros, Digital Altitude is where it’s at. Their products might cost up to $10k+, but you’re getting access to a toolbox of pure gold. Then there’s their commission rate…up to 60%. Just take a second to think about what a 60% commission rate on a $10k+ product looks like. Not bad, huh?
To join NYR Organic in February – kit is $80 with worth of $400+ products, plus shipping and tax, which is around $104. Usuallt the kit is $149. To stay active all you have to do is purchase once every 12 months $100 worth of product. No monthly sales requirements and you will have 25% off all the products. Check out my website and contact for more details.
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
Hi there Jesse. I am Michael. Just wanted to ask you about DSD and Digital altitude. First off I have attempted Amway before and nothing wrong with them other than it relys heavily on meeting new people constantly and at the moment I do not want to do that. I am a current full time student and I work as a contractor when ever I want or can. I would like to replace my current job with either DSD or DA and see where it takes me. But would you even recommend this for me with my kind of time constraints or do I need to make more time for it?

The major reason behind the success of the company and it making into the top 25 MLM companies is that it was able to prove that the network marketing is just not profitable but can also be interesting in many aspects. The World Ventures managed to attract huge number of youngsters who were mainly delighted with their offer to sell trips to various exotic countries.
Your comment and it’s militant nature are the EXACT OPPOSITE of what I believe the doTERRA culture is founded upon. I hope anyone reading this thread choose to look past your article and it’s attack on YoungLiving when basing their decision as to which company they choose to go with. I want them to know that the manner in which you needlessly attacked them is in no way a representation of all the other reps nor the company itself.
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.

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.


First, Elliot, thank you for this article. Your sense of truly wanting to help comes through and it’s refreshing. Like MommyFinance, I too have suffered PTSD from previous runs at MLM but I have been looking for legitimate ways of making extra income and seems I’m being directed toward trying MLM again. Your article gave me hope that there are some good ones out there. What you said about finding the one that fits me and leaving a legacy for family really turned on a light for me and I greatly appreciate that. A wine business is not quite up my alley but I will certainly direct those who might be interested your way.
Before I made a commitment to the company, I tested the products and activity workbooks on my four year old to see if liked them. Not only did he like them...he loves them! That made my decision easier. It's not a get rich quick, you have to put in some work. But as an educator, former tutoring company owner, and a mom, I really wanted a quality product to sell with a small monetary investment. An important thing about Fundanoodle is the support from the company's owner and the other Fundanoodle ambassadors. I've have never witnessed a more kind and supportive group of ladies that want everyone to succeed.

I just started selling for one of the top 15 and I went in knowing that this was just supplemental cash and nothing that would support my family. I spend 15 minutes (mostly from my phone) a day on my business and am happy with what I’ve done thus far. If it covers groceries and some extras like clothes or shoes, I’m good. If I start to become even more successful, great. It’s my competitive nature to want to out rank others, so I find it to be more of a personal challenge than thinking I’m going to get rich and stay rich. I appreciate the article and the no BS attitude.
Paparazzi Accessories is an affordable jewelry company. Our $5 jewelry is beautiful and at a price made to sell. You make an instant 45% commission per each piece you sell. You can start with only $99. The smallest kit includes 35 pieces of jewelry to sell to recoup the cost of the kit and to make additional profits. As soon as you start you’re given a free website where friends and family can buy before you even receive your kit. You get to pick the pieces you want in your inventory and can buy as little or as much as you would like. To be considered active for the month you only need to buy 25 pieces of jewelry.

The company generates well over $1 billion in sales globally every year.

I have been on 6 x trips to USA & visited Disneyland, also holiday at huge resort in Cancun in Mexico & climbed the ancient Myan pyramids and went to Beijing to climb The Great Wall of China with my family & daughter. These trips were never a possibility without this company that is changing so many lives. I live in Australia. I am looking for 5 motivated, purpose driven people this month who I can train to build an International business like I have from home.
I hardly feel like I chose Trades of Hope at all. It more or less chose me. I was a stay at home mom to two baby girls – ages 3 and 9 months at the time – when I started to feel like I hit some sort of wall. You know the one where you realize you haven’t changed your shirt in an insanely long time or had a conversation with an actual adult? I had graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in English & Sociology with a concentration on Race Relations three years prior, and although I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to “be” I would often tell my husband that I just wanted to be an advocate for someone. Never in a million years did I think I would find my calling in Direct Sales. When I came across Trades of Hope at a church fundraiser I was taken with their mission, and it didn’t take very long for me to realize that this was exactly what I’d been looking for – a way to do what so many of us want to do – stay home to raise my babies while making an impact on things that were making me sick inside, like sex trafficking, poverty, lack of education for girls worldwide, etc. And I was going to get paid for telling these incredible stories, educating the public on fair trade, and wearing beautiful handmade jewelry?! I was instantly in love with it. My husband was a little bit nervous that this was too good to be true, but two years later, he is high-fiving me in the hallway when I hit my career goals (yes I said career!), and sending me off to Haiti this October to meet my artisan partners there.
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

Yes, you might want to learn the overview of it so you’re knowledgable and understand how your checks are getting formulated, but I’ve met too many successful networkers who can’t explain comp plans to spend any real time on them. When people ask questions, I refer them to the documentation that’s available and ask them if they’re ready to start a business they can work from home – even online in most cases.
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
"Multilevel marketing companies are defined by their business model," Janet Lamwatthananon, career advisor for ZipRecruiter, an online employment marketplace, wrote in an email. "Rather than having a traditional storefront or a website, MLMs sell their goods through consultants who are paid on commission. One way to think about MLMs is as collections of small businesses sharing a name and product line."

Family Health: Juice+ which is a line of healthy supplements made from whole fruits and vegetables. My personal story here is that in 2007, I was one doctor’s appointment away from starting iron transfusions due to very low iron for almost a year. I started taking the JuicePlus because another GBS patient and friend recommended it. My doctor said okay we will retest in 2 months and see if it drops again — if it does no choice but to go to the transfusions. Two months later after taking the fruit and veggie chewables, my iron didn’t drop again and 4 months after that, my iron rose by 1 point. It continued to rise over the next year till it was in acceptable range (7 points altogether) and I haven’t had an iron issue since.

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.

I'm surprised not to see Perfectly Posh on the list. They offer natural, and vegan skin care and pampering products that are budget friendly. The startup is only $99, no inventory requirements, low 6 month minimums, and a minimum of 20% commissions with reachable promotions in rank and pay. You get a ton of full size products when you sign up, plus a free website, and other marketing support materials. The sisterhood and teamwork is like nothing else I have ever experienced.

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.
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 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!
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 my opinion, of all the direct sales companies to make money with, Scentsy practically sells itself. Their wax warmers come in a wide variety of styles to fit your décor, they plug in so there is no worry about an open flame, and the many fragrances they offer will suit the pickiest noses. I was amazed at how many scents I liked and how similar to nature’s own fragrances they were. Scentsy offers many resources to help consultants become successful. You can host actual home parties, basket parties (similar to a catalog party), and you can even have a booth at a local fair if you’d like. Commissions are based upon your consultant level, but you’re paid monthly and funds are transferred directly to a Scentsy debit card, which is very convenient.
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.
How about the time factor? Well, so far it's working great for me. I do a combo of online and in-home parties - and both are really successful. I like that I don't have to leave home for online parties and I can have them with people far and wide, not just local. But I love in home parties for the face-to-face fun. Within the company, we have lots of people who exclusively hold online parties - even high-level leadership - which is doable and successful when you aren't spammy and have a good outline (I make my own outline each month and share it with my team members).
Then what? After training, teens consult with their mentors for a year, corresponding twice a month. "It's not just about business," says Nakia. "They cultivate life skills like goalsetting, decision-making and money management." The objectives mesh perfectly with the company's mission to empower women of color, and Soul Purpose is rolling out the ESPY mentoring program nationwide. "This prepares teens for the future," Nakia says. "I was a teen mom who struggled at times to make ends meet. I believe in teaching kids how to become financially independent."
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.
Young Living Essential Oils is a seed to seal company. Oils that are organically grown and then steam and distilled for the highest grade. YL oils are for those of you who wish to have things naturally help them in what ever way they can. Oils can be used as aroma therapy, topically, vita-flex points and chakra. To learn more about YLEO please contact me thru my website. On my website you can look at all the different oils, healthy balancing, facial creams, body lotions, soap and more. I offer incentives with a sign up with me. Thank You
Well if you didn’t know before, this company is all about body shapers and nutritional products, with a “greens line” in their product line up as well.  The company got some built up heat in 2015, but have later cooled down a bit.  There was minimum quota of $112 that had to be met every month in order to earn commissions from the company and after a while their distributors had a hard time keeping up with these expectations. Not everyone (including their grandmothers) needs more than one or two body shapers. LOL.
Boutique Owners, (that is what we call our consultants) can join FREE through our Work Hard Play Hard program where we match dollar for dollar in jewelry with their Grand opening sales. If someone would like to sell online only, they can join our Fashion Never Sleeps option for $14,95 a month and in minutes will have an online store filled with hundreds of gorgeous products.
My wife and I spent the last 2 days reading your reviews on the DSD business and we are really interested in this. Both of us have been in the MLM business (corporate) for years and feel like it’s time to get away from the usual 9-5. Would you mind emailing me a complete compensation plan (rank & pay-out, active level requirement, etc.) as well as some of the must-do items in the first 30,60,90 days period?

Le-Vel is a lifestyle brand that helps people feel their best through supplements, shakes, bars, and derma fusion patches.

Except we don't have a container garden. We have one strawberry plant that our cat ate (thanks, Meredith). Gardenuity, a company that ships the container garden straight to your door, gives me the hope that one day this daydream will be a reality. Customers can choose from indoor herb kits or outdoor veggie gardens with which they'll receive their plant, container, soil, compost, plant food and (here's the the best part) concierge service which means they can panic call customer service to troubleshoot issues common to those who lack a green thumb.
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!
Scentsy is a party plan MLM company offering a variety of home and personal fragrance products, including a popular line of scented wickless candles and decorative ceramic warmers. Scentsy Independent Consultants sell products through home parties, fairs and shows and online. For just $99, you can get a starter kit with everything you need to launch your new business.
The structure of MLMs is very similar to a pyramid scheme. This doesn’t mean that all MLMs are pyramid schemes, but some certainly are. Those interested in pursuing a career in multi-level marketing should do research before joining a particular MLM. Generally speaking, if the bulk of the money you stand to earn comes from recruitment rather than direct sales, it’s wise to be very cautious.
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

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.

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.
What’s made Isagenix so successful? A combination of science-backed and evidence-based products that actually work, and an industry leading compensation plan.

Keeping with the trend I have here, yes this is another MLM company operating under the nutritional niche; and it comes to us from Utah.  They have a specific product that’s help made them well-known: seed nutrition and the “black cumin seed,” which evidently is very potent for helping fight cancer cells and encourages anti-oxidant benefits, among other things.
I am over a year in and I am making almost half my income with this little hair jewelry company. A word of warning to others though, DS is not a get rich quick scheme. I put in about 15-20 hours a week after my kids go to sleep promoting this product. It is a job. A job that has made it possible for me to pay the bills and spoil my kids a bit, but yes, a job.
This company also offers, among the majority on this list, one of the greatest opportunities for big money. Glassdoor reviewers give it high marks and those I know who sell the product really seem to enjoy doing so. But success with Rodan and Fields absolutely hinges on your ability to invest time, enthusiasm, and of course, money into the product. Social networking is a must. As I've said with a few of the other companies on this list, I also personally see a locale aspect to success in selling this product. I live in a place where most people earn a low-medium income and I know this stuff would be a hard sell--not because it doesn't work, but because most people around here wouldn't be able or willing to spend that much money on skin care. If you're in a predominantly wealthy area and network with people who really care about appearance and skin care (say, in a big city) though, this is a company worth looking into.
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."
mlw831 thanks for sharing that insight! I'm actually sort of shocked that the Avon model is so...ancient? In my experience buying from direct sales companies, most makeup companies send the product directly to the customer and the representative simply does just that - represent, without holding any kind of inventory or having to do any travel other than parties they can plan in their own time (and they're not even necessary). Good info for anyone considering Avon who may not have the time or energy to hand deliver each order.

AMWAY – Amway is a pioneer in the MLM industry. It was created way back in 1959 and now considered one of the top 10 MLM companies in the world. The company had a reported earning of at least 8 billion dollars with a network of members that is growing on a daily basis. Amway is considered the second biggest MLM company in the world when compared the revenue generated. The company runs its own production facility in the U.S. with many products in home care, personal care and nutritional supplements.
Here we’ve got a throwback to network marketing’s roots (Remember Tupperware parties? No? There’s a reason for that). Kitchen products, cooking demos, and mommy bloggers galore. Stay-at-home-moms looking for some flexibility are still a HUGE target demographic for MLM, so it’s no surprise that Pampered Chef has done so well that Warren Buffett decided he needed a piece of the action.
Lorene Hochstetler, from Ohio, recommends keeping your current job while slowly making the transition into MLM.  She’s been able to replace her full-time income but explains, “It didn’t happen overnight, and I still work every day.  I am very disciplined with my business and wake up every day knowing what I have to do in order to succeed at this.  You have to treat it like a business and be willing to follow advice from others who have made it.”

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. 

Hi! Ever heard the old Adage Timing is Everything? Well it’s true. Join the fastest growing Direct Selling Company in the U.S. . Nerium International has sales of 700 million with just 2 products in 3 years. No other company has posted these kind of numbers in the 130 year history of DIrect Selling. With an 82% customer retention your residual income will skyrocket. Nerium uses Real Science to get Real Results. Nerium will be releasing 2 additional products in April that will take the company to a new level. We need Brand Partners now to help us with the demand. Check out my website for more information: http://www.healthyskinby.nerium.com
I’d like to point out a few things: statistically something like 96% of businesses fail within the first 5-10 years, which is a much more impactful loss, both financially and time wise, than the few hundred dollars one puts into whatever product they’re using in MLM. So realistically the success rate as a “self employed business owner” with MLM is probably a bit better than it is with launching a traditional business, or at least consistent with it. It takes discipline and tenacity that many people don’t have- that’s why they chose to remain employees in the first place.
If you need something just see if this company has it, because chances are they do.  They are recognized for their greatly discounted product one-stop-shop, as they are wealthy CEOs.  The CEOs have made it to the Forbes list, drive nice cars, live in mansions in Biscayne Bay, penthouses in Manhattan, and are well-known with celebrities…I could go on, but you get the picture, right?  And this is all in credit to their MLM.  They’ve hit snags in their past with the SEC, but at the end of the day they just kept going, and they’re going strong.  Market America still managed to make it onto the DSN Global 100 at the 29th position.
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.
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.
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.

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.


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.
I feel blessed to have found this opportunity and my purpose will always be to glorify God. I also love helping my team members and customers become the best versions of themselves. Join me — it's fun and you too could change your financial future! If you send me a PM, I'll send you a business presentation to watch. I'd also love to send ya free samples to try!
