Is World Wide Dream Builders worth the money?

World Wide Dream Builders is an internet marketing organization affiliated with MLM giant Amway.

With the advent of the internet, anyone who figures out how to make good money can make even more money teaching other people how to do it – and unlike gold, which is a limited, physical resource, lots of these online money-making opportunities are unlimited.

That’s what World Wide Dream Builders is all about.

Make sense? Either way, here’s the full review on WWDB.

Overview

If you’ve heard of MLM, you’ve probably heard of Amway. And if you’ve heard of Amway, you’ve probably heard of World Wide Dream Builders…

Here’s why.

Amway is the #1, long-time reigning champ when it comes to direct sales. Call them the Michael Phelps of MLM.

If you take a look at the top MLMs in the world based on revenue, the numbers speak for themselves. Amway is, and has been for years, in the first position. They bring in $8.8 billion in annual revenue, while #2, Avon, isn’t even close – they sit at $5.7 billion.

So, it makes sense that when you have a corporation that huge, it’s going to have some popular offshoots and copycats. Well, Amway has hundreds. In fact, they have so many, there’s a name for them: Amway Motivational Organizations (AMOs).

These are MLMs that successful Amway distributors started in which they use the methods from their own success to train and motivate new Amway distributors to follow in their (6-figure) footsteps…all for the low, low price of $49.95. These guys built their own pyramid off the side of another pyramid, basically.

Worldwide Dream Builders (WWDB) is one of those AMOs. In fact, it’s the largest, most successful AMO.

WWDB was started by Amway legend Ron Puryear. This guy started with Amway wayyy back in the early 70s, and he managed to hit it big. It only took him 4 years to move up to Diamond, and before he knew it, he was pulling in 6 figures.

Naturally, people began to notice him, and he’d taken to teaching others his methods for success. So he decided to make money off this by starting WWDB in 1997. Using his WWDB program, he’s grown his own prodigies: his organization at Amway now has over 500 Diamonds.

How much does Worldwide Dream Builders cost?

It costs $49.95 per month to join WWDB as a basic member.

However, there are some additional fees you’ll need to pay in addition to your membership, and they’re a little hidden. I’ll spell them out for you.

Communikate – $36.95/month. This is the communication system they use. Without it, you won’t be able to partake in any of the benefits of being a member.

A basic subscription to training CDs and audio – $25/month. Without these, you might as well not join at all, as they’re the bread and butter of the company.

So, it’s closer to $112 per month, bare minimum.

On top of this, there are lots of extra training kits, events, and educational programs you can purchase that can add up to over $250 a piece. Plus, you have to sell around $300 per month to qualify for commission. This is in addition to whatever you’re paying Amway to sell for them.

Products

WWDB sells the dream of striking it rich with Amway. They do this in various formats – eBooks, audio files, CDs, and presentations.

They also sell training events in various cities around the country that cost a pretty penny. They really sell distributors on these events, convincing them that attending in person is the only way they can make real money. Those costs add up fast.

Their basic $25/month order gets you 6 audio files per month with the most recent information, trainings, and advice for selling with Amway. There are an endless amount of materials and training packets that one can purchase though.

It’s genius – if anyone feels like they’re wasting their money and not getting anything out of WWDB, they can convince that person that they simply aren’t spending enough. “Well, of course you’re not seeing success yet, you haven’t purchased XYZ!”

Compensation Plan

Known for having one of the most unique compensation plans in the industry, WWDB really makes their distributors work long, hard hours and go hard with the Facebook spamming in order to see any results.

That’s because they work on a compensation system that requires you to build up 6, (yes, SIX), legs, all at once. Just to qualify for a bonus, you’ve got to hit 300 PV yourself and then get all 6 of your legs to hit 100 PV each.

That’s not all. In addition to getting all six to sell for you, you’ve also got to get half of them to attend those expensive in person events, and 5 out of 6 have to be purchasing the monthly standing order of audio files.

On top of that, your legs will break away when they hit 7,500 PV, and you’ll have to start all over from scratch.

It sounds crazy, and it is. But you do see some good rewards if you can make it happen continually. You get 30% commission off your active legs, and even after they break away, you still see 4% residuals for life.

Recap

Don’t expect dream building to come easy. You’ve got to put in some serious work to do well with WWDB (along with some serious cash).

This is all on top of the time and money you’re investing into Amway, which is likely already way too much.

Can you get rich off Amway and WWDB?

Highly doubtful. Nothing against the company, but 99% of MLM-ers aren’t making any money.

If it’s financial freedom you seek and you like automated ways to build passive income, there are better ways.

(and you can trash those old MLM habits, too)

Make sense? Either way, here’s the full review on SeneGence.

Overview

Despite the current LipSense-mania, SeneGence has actually been around for a long time. Since 1998, to be exact. But they were kind of a nobody until recently.

Just check this chart. Crazy.

// ]]>

So what pushed the hype train on SeneGence into overdrive?

Probably a mix between the increasing popularity of social media (in particular, Instagram and YouTube) and, well, Kylie Jenner…stay with me here.

Love her or hate her, Kylie Jenner started a worldwide trend with her infamously bloated (and purportedly fake) “Jenner lips”. A YouTube/Vine trend called the “Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge”, in which women used lipstick to grossly exaggerate the size of their lips, took the internet by storm in 2014.

Thus, the cultural obsession with lipstick was reborn, and it used social media as its platform right from the start. You’ll notice that this is around the time that SeneGence started taking off.

With their ultra-long lasting LipSense products and the potential to turn their direct sales model into social media influencer marketing, SeneGence rode this wave like a pro. By 2015, they were up to $15 million in annual revenue and breaking sales records left and right. In 2017, they made it to #47 on the Direct Selling Momentum Ranks, which measures the momentum of an MLM based on their Alexa ranking, the buzz they’re getting on Facebook, engagement on social media, and their own polls.

Joni Rogers-Kante, the founder of SeneGence, is the reason SeneGence has been so successful. She was trained by the best in the business – Rogers-Kante is a former pink Caddy driving Mary Kay lady. After learning the ropes and hitting top sales numbers, she went off on her own and started SeneGence.

Headquartered in California, the company has 80 full-time employees and now operates in over a dozen countries worldwide.

How much does Senegence cost?

To become a distributor, you need to pay a $55 sign-up fee. This will get you all the necessary marketing and training materials, but you won’t get any product.

To start up with some product (which you have to do if you want to sell anything), you can choose from two kits:

  • Lips Kit: $95, comes with select lip product
  • Glamour Demo Kit: $295, comes with a sampling of all their best-selling products

In order to remain qualified, you need to sell at least 300 PV each month.

Products

It’s not just their lipsticks that are long-lasting. All SeneGence products were formulated to last longer than any other cosmetics on the market. Long-lasting makeup is just now becoming a trend, but they’ve been doing it since the 90s.

SeneGence makeup is all semi-permanent, water-resistant, all-day wear makeup. And when they say all day, they really mean all day. SeneGence is still known for having some of the best long lasting cosmetic products on the market.

Their products come in the following categories:

  • Skincare
  • Anti-Aging
  • Face
  • Eyes
  • Lips
  • Body

They also recently started selling perfume as well as a line of special, dermatologist formulated products called SeneDerm.

Their products aren’t outrageously priced, but they’re pretty expensive. LipSense, for example, costs $25 for one color. On top of that, you’re technically supposed to purchase the $20 LipSense Gloss in order to “seal” the color as well as the $10 Ooops! Remover in order to properly remove the lipstick. If you really want the Kylie Jenner look, you’ll also need the $50 LipVolumizer. That’s a total of $105 just to look like you’ve got bee stung lips.

It’s also a lot to invest in up-front. As a distributor, you’re going to want some product on hand so that potential clients can try it out. No one wants to spend $45+ on a lipstick they can’t even try first – what if it looks bad? You’ll want to have all the different colors on hand for them to try, too.

This is turning into a pretty hefty initial investment.

Compensation Plan

You do get a pretty generous discount on product, which is a huge plus for a lot of SeneGence distributors. They often join just for the product discount.

The product discount starts at 20%, but it can range all the way up to 50% if you sell enough. You have to hit at least 750 PV per month to get the 50% discount, but that means you’re taking in 50% retail profit on your personal sales. That’s one of the highest commission rates out there (on par with Mary Kay).

You’ll also get residual commission on your downline. This is paid out on a unilevel structure, and it only pays out 5 levels deep. Most MLMs pay residuals 7 levels deep.

However, their rates aren’t bad. You get 10% on the purchases of your level 1 recruits, 20% on your level 2, and 30% on your level 3. And you only have to hit 100 PV monthly to unlock that. Eventually, you can unlock an extra 5% on your level 4 and level 5 recruits.

What this encourages you to do is to focus a little more on quality over quantity when building your team. Other MLMs pay down 7 levels deep with lower commission rates, which makes it pretty easy to just sit back and let your downline recruit, recruit, recruit without training them much in sales.

With SeneGence, there’s a big focus on your first three levels, so it becomes important to train your recruits really well and help them succeed.

They also pay residuals 5 levels deep on the sales volume of your downline, which totals out to 25%.

Recap

If you’re really into SeneGence products, you should probably join up as a distributor. They offer great discounts, and it could turn out to be a really fun hobby.

But if you’re expecting to make a living off this opportunity, good luck. You’ve got to invest a lot of money to start up, and you’ve got to sell like crazy and recruit a HUGE team. This just isn’t realistic for 99% of people.

Hitting it big with a company like SeneGence really only works if you’re already a pretty well known beauty blogger or YouTuber with thousands of loyal followers. You’ve already established a huge customer base, and they trust your recommendations.

However, don’t expect to build an empire from scratch. If you don’t already have a following and a very big, loyal client base, you’re probably going to be throwing your money at SeneGence while your words fall on deaf ears.

If it’s financial freedom you seek and you like automated ways to build passive income, there are better ways.

(and you can trash those old MLM habits, too)

Monat takes MLM by storm with premium haircare products

Monat is a wellness MLM with a main focus on hair care and known for their “wash and wine” parties.

Their product is actually pretty unique for an MLM. At the same time, it’s a competitive industry with a lot of monsters (see: Arbonne, Oriflame, Perfectly Posh).

So have I been involved with Monat?

Make sense? Either way, here’s the full review on Monat.

Overview

Monat does everything that most MLMs try to do but fail miserably. They are classy and forward-thinking. Their products are naturally based and backed by tons of research. Their home parties are actually sort of fun.

Monat was launched just a couple years ago in 2014 by Luis and Rayner Urdaneta. They’re headquartered in Miami, Florida. Monat stands for Modern Nature.

Within just one year of launch, Monat was already pushing $25 million in annual revenue. They hit the ground running fast, and it’s really no wonder.

For starters, brother-son duo Luis and Rayner had already run one very successful direct sales company in the cosmetics niche: L’eudine. They’re a massive ($200+ million in annual revenue) MLM in Latin America that has recently started to expand into the United States.

What’s more, Monat is a subsidiary of parent company Alcora, also founded by Luis. So they already had some massive capital and experience to work with when they finally started up Monat.

By 2016, annual sales for Monat was already at $41 million. All this won them the 2016 Gold Stevie award for Startup of the Year.

How much does Monat cost?

Monat has a $99 start-up fee that includes a kit filled with marketing materials and training information. You are also required to pay an annual renewal fee of $19.95.

Products

Monat sells naturally-based hair care products at a premium price, and it’s working well for them. Their products are scientifically tested and very popular among their loyal following.

One of the reasons Monat has done so well is that they’ve formulated products that combat specific hair care issues that many people suffer from such as hair loss, aging, dandruff, and thinning/breakage. For many people, Monat is the only product on the market that really targets their needs.

You’ve got products like Head & Shoulders for dandruff, but they’re full of parabens and harmful chemicals.

You’ve heard of anti-aging creams and foundations, but have you heard of anti-aging hair care products? Probably not, because Monat is the first company to develop products that fight hair aging.

Yes, hair ages. According to a study done by the University Hospital of Zurich’s Department of Dermatology and Hair Clinic, aging causes weathering of the hair shaft and aging of the hair follicle. Aside from graying, this also causes your body to decrease its hair production greatly over time, and it causes hair loss. [1]

The primary formula that Monat uses to combat these effects is their Rejuvinique oil, which can be found in most Monat products. It’s composed of a patented blend of 11 different oils that are designed to keep your hair follicles healthy and promote hair growth by restoring your hair’s essential oils and nutrients.

Monat products are made from high-quality botanicals and essential oils, and they don’t contain sulfates, silicone, parabens, harsh fragrances, and other fillers. Unlike most hair products, Monat’s aren’t a short term fix that will damage your hair with harmful chemicals in the long run. They’re also cruelty-free

Some of their most popular products include:

  • Renew Shampoo
  • Restore Leave-In Conditioner
  • Refinish Control Hairspray
  • Replenish Masque

They aren’t cheap, at all. Don’t expect drugstore prices. However, if you compare them to high-end salon products, the pricing is about the same. Most products range from $30-$60. Their Magnify Treatment System, meant to increase volume, comes with a shampoo, conditioner, and mousse for $99.

Compensation Plan

Of course, if you enroll as a distributor, you get pretty generous discounts on these products.

There are 5 ways to earn with Monat:

  1. Sales Commissions
  2. Sponsor & Develop
  3. Builder Bonus
  4. Advancement Bonuses
  5. VIP Customers Sales

Sales commissions range all the way up to 40%, which is great. It’s pretty much as high as it gets in MLM, with the exception of a select few that offer up to 50% commission. You do have to work pretty hard to reach that 40% commission rate though, as it requires you to sell a lot of product on a monthly basis.

Sponsor & Develop is the bread and butter of this plan. This is where you get rewarded for building up a large, successful downline, and it’s where you’ll make most of your money if you do well with Monat. Aside from a $100 fast start bonus and a $150 fast builder bonus, you can also earn up to 12% in unilevel bonuses, 4% in generational bonuses (up to 5 levels deep), and a 5% network bonus.

Builder Bonus is for folks who move up quickly to Silver or Platinum status and help their team members do the same. You can earn a $500 or a $1,000 bonus.

Advancement Bonuses are matching bonuses that you can earn on the achievements of your direct recruits. They range from $150 to $500.

VIP Customers Sales are customers that have signed up for the VIP program, which puts them on a recurring monthly autoship for their favorite products. You’ll earn a 15% commission on their monthly purchases without even lifting a finger.

Recap

Honestly, I’m pretty intrigued by Monat. I’ll be interested to see if they make it past the 5-year mark, because I can see great things in their future.

They’ve got an innovative product that works, a pretty decent compensation plan, and solid leadership.

What they don’t have is a business model that will help you get rich. It doesn’t matter how good your product and leadership are, the fact is that 99% of MLMers don’t make money. At all.

Spamming Facebook friends and holding in-home parties on a Sunday afternoon gets old, real quick. Especially when you’re shelling out hundreds of dollars to pay for training and product samples and not seeing a dime of it returned to you.

If it’s financial freedom you seek and you like automated ways to build passive income, there are better ways.

(and you can trash those old MLM habits, too)

The 50 best network marketing companies of 2017

This is the ultimate list.

Here are the best network marketing opportunities of 2017 based off of trends, speculation and your ability to thrive.

Here we go:

#50. Empower Network

(June 2017 update: Dave Wood has temporarily stepped down after checking into drug rehab). Will we ever stop hearing about Empower Network? This is one of those rare MLMs that lit up and didn’t crash and burn a year later. Still, they are on a painful, slow decline now and its doubtful they will make this list in coming years.

#49. Bode Pro

This is a new venture that hits this list because we know the masses from another MLM will follow over to Bode Pro. You see, this is BK Boreyko’s company, the same guy who just got handled by the FTC at Vemma. Woudn’t doubt him to make another splash.

#48. Forever Green

(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).

#47. Beachbody

P90x and Insanity workouts were the craze. They’ve fallen off a bit, but Beachbody is still a household name. They’re so product-centric, few people know they’re actually a network marketing company. Probably a good thing for company longevity, but they’re definitely not one of the “hot offers” to promote.

#46. ACN

Anyone involved in network marketing in the early 2000’s know ACN was “the ish”. Fast-forward to today, the telecommunications venture has seen steady declines the last 5 years, but $800+ million in annual revenue still isn’t bad. Still, they’re easily a “has been” and have failed to re-invent themselves.

#45. Youngevity

One of the trending anti-aging schemes, Youngevity touts “selenium” as the mineral to help several immune system and thyroid functions. The company has seen steady growth (revenue up to $156 million annually, up 16%), but they’ve failed to corner the market. Too many other hot players (see: Nerium, Jeunesse)

#44. It Works!

Body shapers and nutritional products. And a “greens line” as well. It Works! caught some flame in 2015 but have since fallen off a bit. Distributors have to sell $112 per month to get those commissions, so it was harder for most to keep up. “Yo, Grandma, you like these body shapers? Imma use your credit card cool?” Imagine? Lol.

#43. NHT Global

They were hot. These guys caught some shade for over-inflating their health products, but what health MLM doesn’t inflate their prices “a tiny bit” so they can dish out those juicy commissions? Well, their fiber product was 900% more than “leading alternatives” and their Trioten protein blend was 600% more expensive than Herbalife and Shaklee proteins. Ouch.

#42. PartyLite

The old-school version of “Scentsy” is not as nearly hot or trendy, but they’re staying relevant. The whole game to this “opportunity” is to host parties and then get ’em to pull out their credit cards and buy some candles. Luckily, there’s way better ways to make side money these days.

#41. USANA

These guys shouldn’t be on this list. In fact, they shouldn’t even be in business after the smackdown that was handed to them by the SEC and FBI in 2007. Yet they managed to make a massive comeback. The proof is in the income disclosure statement – $76k per year for full-time, well-established associates.

#40. Melaleuca

When you hit over a billy in annual sales, that’s reason enough to be on the shortlist. On top of that, they’ve been in the MLM game for over two decades, and they’re now the “largest online wellness shopping club” (basically just sounds like a fancy way of saying they sell a lot of miracle diet pills).

#39. Seacret

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.

#38. Jamberry Nails

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.

#37. World Ventures

Breaking into the world of travel bloggers, hotel hoppers, and digital nomads with #wanderlust was one of the best ideas MLM ever had. Everyone out there wants to work remotely nowadays, and a huge portion of those people want to do it so that they can travel. So, a remote income opportunity with a travel MLM just makes sense. WorldVentures is hitting this niche hard, having been named one of the Inc. 5000’s fastest growing companies twice in a row.

#36. Natures Sunshine

One of the rare true pioneers in MLM. Herbal supplement capsules are EVERYWHERE now, but the husband and wife duo behind Natures Sunshine were the first to do it…ever. A visit to your local health store (or your astrology-loving yoga friend’s medicine cabinet) will show you just how popular their invention has become.

#35. Kyani

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.

#34. Rain

Rain is another nutritional MLM outta Utah (yawn, right?) but these guys do have an angle: seed nutrition and the “black cumin seed”, which is apparently more potent for fighting cancer cells and promotes good anti-oxidant health benefits and stuff.

For whatever reason, the black cumin seed has trended well in recent years:

https://ssl.gstatic.com/trends_nrtr/1040_RC04/embed_loader.js trends.embed.renderExploreWidget(“TIMESERIES”, {“comparisonItem”:[{“keyword”:”black cumin seed”,”geo”:””,”time”:”today 5-y”}],”category”:0,”property”:””}, {“exploreQuery”:”q=black%20cumin%20seed”,”guestPath”:”https://trends.google.com:443/trends/embed/&#8221;});

#33. Market America

Market America is just as known for their massive discounted products portal as they are for their crazy rich CEOs. I’m talking Forbes list, mansion in Biscayne Bay and penthouse in Manhattan, celeb bffs, and giant yachts rich…all thanks to MLM. They’ve hit their fair share of SEC-shaped road blocks, but Market America is still going strong at #29 on the DSN Global 100.

#32. Ambit

They’re a long ways from becoming “the finest and most-respected retail energy provider in America,” especially after getting smacked with a class action lawsuit a few years ago. But what’s a lawsuit when you’ve got a global revenue of $1.5 billion?

#31. Wealthy Affiliate

An MLM without the Facebook stalking, 3-way calls, and autoship? Welcome to the future, network marketing, it’s about time. Wealthy Affiliate is an affiliate opportunity for people who want some solid digital marketing training, and they’ve even got a free trial option.

#30. Pampered Chef

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.

#29. 4Life

These guys trended for a long time and then flattened out a bit, but they’re still pretty huge. They push their immunity-boosting nutritional products in over 50 countries to date, and they’ve actually got some pretty fantastic reviews from both former and current associates. Commission isn’t great, but at least the reps are happy?

#28. Plexus

Fad diets are the neverending story of the 2000s, and Plexus is one of them. Like most miracle weight loss pills, they’ve had run-ins with the FDA, and they don’t fare well with the BBB either. But they’ve managed to trend upwards for 5 years straight regardless, and reps can earn a whopping 50% commission.

#27. Arbonne

Arbonne is a massive MLM in the shadow of two even bigger cosmetics giants (Avon and Mary Kay). However, with their focus on cruelty-free products and au natural ingredients, it’s looking like they could catch up at any minute. Expect to see them in the billion dollar annual revenue club ASAP.

#26. My Lead System Pro

Rob Fore is one of the bigger SEO network marketers in the game, and he still pushes MLSP as his #1 venture. That should say a lot. They’re still hanging around, although not as hot other digital MLM darlings (see: Tecademics, Digital Altitude, Empower Network, Wealthy Affiliate).

#25. Tecademics

Now we’re getting into the real heavyweights. Tecademics is one of the most extensive digital marketing training programs out there, within and outside of MLM. Founder Chris Record started Tecademics after completely crushing it at Empower Network. Their training comes at a steep price tag, although it’s nothing compared to the price of a university degree.

#24. Omnilife

Before launching Omnilife and becoming a billionaire, Jorge Vergara sold street tacos in Mexico, smuggled Herbalife supplements into Mexico, and sweet talked the Mexican government into changing their regulations in the nutritional products sector. This guy could make a movie about his life and it would probably win an Academy Award (he’s actually a major film producer on the side, casual).

#23. Team National

These guys have been pushing their coupon books for decades. It sounds outdated, but they just hit over half a billion in sales, so clearly someone’s buyin’. Founder Dick Loehr is kind of an entrepreneurial genius.

#22. Le-vel

Almost at their 5 year mark, this health and wellness MLM has blown up. They even won the Bravo Growth Award from Direct Selling News Global a couple years back. When you’re young and new, there’s no where else to go but up…until you eventually come crashing down into a million little pieces (and by pieces I mean lost, jobless MLMers).

#21. Lifevantage

Here we’ve got yet another pseudo-science MLM from Utah. But hey, don’t fix it if it ain’t broke? These guys are doing an annual revenue of $214 million, and their distributors are getting access to 6 different pay bonuses.

#20. Purium

Naturopathy is this MLM’s M.O., and all the #cleaneating, medicinal herb drinking, free spirits are loving it. Supposedly, they’ve got “The FASTEST, healthiest, simplest weight loss program on the planet.” Purium isn’t all talk, either – they’ve actually got a line of certified organic products.

#19. Mary Kay

It’s no secret that the ladies in pink from Mary Kay are the Queens of the MLM-World. Just a few spots down from major rival Avon, Mary Kay is ranked as the #5 MLM in the entire world, doing $3.5 billion in annual revenue.

#18. World Global Network

If WGN is looking for world domination, they may be onto something. This company sells every futuristic gadget you can imagine, from space phones to wearable tech to virtual reality. After only a few years in operation, they’re already rising to the top 100 MLMs in the world.

#17. Isagenix

While Isagenix hasn’t quite made it to the big leagues with Advocare, they’re definitely on deck. They’ve churned out a number of millionaires, they have a product with great reviews, and the hype around this brand is insane.

#16. Amway

They’ve been the #1 MLM in the world for years. Their annual revenue can’t be touched by anyone ($8.8 billion). Amway is so huge that their brand is literally synonymous with network marketing – which can be good and bad.

#15. Avon

Avon is the famous old lady brand, but don’t underestimate your grandma. They’re the only MLM that’s even come close to Amway (they’re #2 in the world, and they’ve got $5.7 billion in annual revenue). Of course, nothing lasts forever – their sales have been tanking for 5 years, and they just had to sell off their North American branch.

#14. Nu Skin

From former presidential candidates to the New York Times, these guys have managed to get a lot of high profile endorsements. No Suzanne Somers and Chuck Norris wash ups over here. One slot away from being a top 10 MLM, they’re worth a whopping $3 billion, and the growth rate on their stock will make your jaw drop.

#13. Nerium

Within one year of operation, this anti-aging MLM was already ranked #86 out of 100 by Direct Selling News. They did over $100 million in revenue…in their first year. What have you done in a year?

#12. Modere

This eco-friendly MLM is seriously committed: their headquarters are operated with wind power. They’re pretty future-facing in general, having implemented an innovative social marketing strategy amongst their reps. No one likes to be harassed on Facebook, but Modere’s social media plan is still 10 times more effective than holding home parties (kill me).

#11. Younique

This semi-new cosmetics MLM really lives up to its name. With a genius marketing strategy that leverages social media in a way that’s only moderately annoying and uses real customers as their models, Younique has become one of the most buzz-worthy MLMs of the 21st century.

#10. Motorclub of America

MCA Motorclub might offer services a bunch of other companies already offer for a lot less (AAA), but they’ve actually packaged them with unique services that are super useful. Their CEO has structured their referral plan so perfectly that people keep coming back. Plus, they’ve been around since 1926 – long enough to be an American tradition.

#9. Primerica

For some reason financial services MLMs don’t usually do very well (something about the irony of spending a bunch of money to save money). But Primerica has it figured out after over three decades in business. Their revenue in 2013 was a massive $1.27 billion, so they at least know how to make money for themselves.

#8. Advocare

This is one of those MLMs that’s been around forever (or at least since 1993) and isn’t going anywhere. They’ve really built up a well-regarded brand name and a solid, stable foundation for themselves. It doesn’t hurt that they’re pushing half a billion in annual revenue, either.

#7. Digital Altitude

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?

#6. Rodan and Fields

One of the best skincare products in and outside of MLM, no doubt. They were founded by a couple dermatologists, and they used to be an upscale department store brand before entering the world of network marketing. Rodan and Fields created Proactiv, which ended up being one of the most famous skincare products of all time (and a hero-in-a-bottle for every middle schooler who’s ever been called pizza-face). Just this one product line is nearing $1 billion in annual sales.

#5. Jeunesse

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).

#4. Young Living

Essential oils are hot, and Young Living is a big part that. They were the first, too. These guys would be on my short list for companies to push based off of industry trends.

Fun fact: Gary Young has built an empire much different than his 1980s blood testing lab in Tijuana that was clowned by the LA Times. Okay, that was decades ago, but still thought that was funny. Sometimes you just can’t take the “hustle” outta people, and I mean that in a slightly good way.

#3. Herbalife

Herbalife could be the most famous network marketing company, but not for the right reasons. They’ve been boxing the FTC for years, but they’ve agreed to pay back $200 milly to former distributors and vowed to restructure the company.

So, it remains to be seen what a less pyrmaid-esque version of Herbalife yields, but I’m gonna bet better than 99% of MLMs based off brand awareness.

Most people know that Herbalife is a company that sells nutritional stuff (their presence in latin countries is bonkers!), and thats enough to make them play with the big-leagues (unlike most MLMs that fade into obscurity or tackle a micro-niche).

#2. doTERRA

Ah, yes, the “other” essential oils empire. doTERRA is a little younger than Young Living, but they have the momentum in a niche thats arguably the hottest in direct selling.

They have the stay-at-home-mother meets women entrepreneur mixture working for them. What does that even mean? Means they have the practicality side of the company that is off the product and they have the sales, entrepreneur people them promoting it, too. Anyone who follows MLM knows its usually too “product practical” (see: Tupperware, Cutco) or too “opportunity-centric” (see: Herbalife).

doTERRA has a fine balance.

#1. Scentsy

So refreshing to see a direct-selling venture pushing a unique product that people are crazy about without the “income opportunity”.

That doesn’t mean people aren’t making bank on flameless candles.

Just means they’re a product-first company which screams longevity in the network marketing space. They have a product that works, their PR game is strong, and they’re alone in their category.

Translation: exponential growth on the horizon.

Final word

So, does MLM work?

The short answer: it hasn’t for most.

The intentions are good, but most people do not make money and there’s a good chance that a company won’t be around in 5 years.

If you like the products, great. Buy them. Some of the companies above make great products (and I use some of them).

But if you’re doing it for the money, there’s much better ways to make money online.

Is Motor Club of America a total scam?

These guys have been around forever, and I’ll just say it now: it’s definitely not a scam.

But is it a good deal? Well, do you consider paying double the price for your services a good deal?

Of course, what you’re really paying for with that 100% jump in price is the right to push the overpriced product to all your friends and family. Does this mean I’ve been involved?

Make sense? Either way, here’s the full review on Motor Club of America, the company.

Overview

The Motor Club of America’s history dates wayyy back to 1926 – they’ve practically been around as long as cars have.

The club was started by a group of three brothers from Atlantic City, New Jersey, who were children of Russian immigrants. William, Samuel, and David Green started Motor Club of America at just the right time, when households all across America were starting to purchase cars. Their company took off and eventually branched out to the rest of the country, opening dozens of offices across the northeast, southeast, and Midwest.

The brothers worked together for over 50 years providing emergency roadside services, towing, repairs, and maps for drivers all over the country. In 1986, they sold the entire company to Trac, Inc., owners of the Thrifty-Rent-A-Car system. By 1992, they were conducting business in all 50 states and Canada.

TVC Marketing, founded by a veteran of the motor club industry (and, weirdly enough, former marketing arm of Pre-Paid Legal), now owns Motor Club of America and has since 1996. The founder Coffee Virgil, weirdly enough, used to be the marketing arm of Pre-Paid Legal. TVC stands for ‘Truckers Voice in Court’, and they also offer legal services to truckers.

Motor Club of America now has over 6,000 auto repair and service centers nationwide

How much does Motor Club of America cost?
In order to join, you must purchase a Total Security membership for $19.95/month.

Products

Motor Club of America does NOT sell car insurance. They sell various other roadside services. MCA is basically AAA with a direct selling structure (and higher prices).

They offer three membership plans: Security ($9.95/month), Security Plus ($14.95/month), and Total Security ($19.95/month).  In the end, you’re shelling out around $120, $180, or $240 a year for these memberships.

Without a doubt, these are useful services in the membership. However, it’s not that different from AAA, which costs HALF the price (about $66/year for a basic membership, $100 for Plus, and $126 for Premiere).

All memberships include…

Unlimited Roadside Assistance

Most competitors cap service calls on their basic plan to 2-4 per year. MCA allows one call per day all year long. Roadside assistance services include lockout assistance, fuel delivery, tire changing, and battery boosting.

Travel Assistance Reimbursement

If your vehicle is not operating or in the repair shop for a few days, MCA will reimburse you up to $500 for a rental car, hotel, or meals if you are more than 50 miles from home.

Planning and Travel Reservations

This is a system that helps you map out and plan your travels, and it includes a reservation system for air travel, rental cars, and hotels.

Arrest Bonds

MCA membership includes a cash bail of up to $500 for traffic violation incidents. This is only available in some states.

Bail Bonds

MCA will release up to $25,000 on bond to release you from jail if you were charged with a moving traffic law violation as the driver.

Attorney Fees

As long as you are driving your covered auto, MCA will pay up to $2,000 in attorney fees should you receive traffic-based police charges.

Stolen Vehicle Reward

In the event that your vehicle is stolen, MCA will offer a reward of up to $5,000 to the person or law enforcement agency that recovers the car.

Credit Card Protection

Financial coverage of up to $1,000 in losses in the case that your identity is stolen.

Discounts

Members can use their card for 15%-65% discounts on prescriptions, dental procedures, eye wear and eye exams, rental cars, and major hotel chains.

Emergency Reimbursement Benefits

Up to $500 in cash for Emergency Room or Trauma Center treatment due to car-related injuries.

Daily Hospital Benefit

If you are hospitalized due to a vehicle-related accident that is covered, you can receive up to $150 per day to cover your hospital stay for up to 365 consecutive days or $54,750.

Accidental Death Benefit

They offer $10,000 accidental death coverage to members.

The Security Plus membership offers accident coverage, hospital benefits, and emergency benefits under all circumstances, not just vehicle-related. The Total Security membership includes all of the above plus higher coverage levels, up to 100 miles towing per service call, customer can choose towing destination, and RVs, motorcycles, and trailers are included.

Total Security members can take part in their referral program, whereas regular Security members cannot.

Opportunity

Distributors are given an advance on their commission for membership sales – the entire year’s worth is given to you up front. However, if one of your customers cancels their membership, you have to pay that back.

For each basic Security membership you sell, you get a $40 advance for the entire year. For Security Plus, you get $60, and for Total Security, you get $80.

If, for example, you can sell 5 Security Plus memberships per week, you would make $21,320 for the year. That’s not an easy feat, though. Better have a lot of friends and family members you’re willing to alienate.

Distributors also earn overrides on their 1st Level (direct) recruits. If someone you personally sponsored sells the basic Security membership, you get $4. If they sell Security Plus, you get $5. If they sell Total Security, you get $6.

Recap

These guys have been around forever, it’s definitely not a scam.

But is it a good deal? Well, do you consider paying double for the same services a good deal?

Ultimately, AAA is half the price, so the only reasons for buying into this are

  • You’re clueless and haven’t shopped around or
  • You’re trying to cash in on the affiliate program

If you’re trying to cash in on the affiliate program, you should think long and hard about laying down $240/year, because if the only people who would purchase a membership are clueless people who have done NO shopping around, you’re probably not going to find enough customers to keep your “business” afloat.

But if it’s financial freedom you seek and you like automated ways to build passive income, there are better ways.

(and you can trash those old MLM habits, too)

The epic rise and fall of MonaVie

If Britney Spears were an MLM instead of a washed up mega-pop-star, she’d be MonaVie.

Think Britney cerca 2001, back when her posters graced the bedroom walls of every teenager in America and she was pulling multi-million dollar contracts for a 30 second spot with Pepsi. MonaVie was pretty close to being on that level within a couple years of launch…

But by 2014 they were more like bald Britney breaking car windows with her umbrella. At least Britney’s got a Vegas show nowadays…MonaVie has nothing left but a pretty crazy story to tell.

Was I ever a part of it?

Make sense? Either way, here’s the full review on MonaVie.

Overview

MonaVie was a nutrition MLM founded in 2005 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Shocking, right?

Founder Dallin Larsen had already built up a pretty boss career in MLM before launching MonaVie. Dude was a senior-level executive at both Dynamic Essentials and USANA.

MonaVie became one of the biggest, trendiest names in nutrition almost instantly. They hit the $1 billion mark in annual sales, and there are only a few MLMs in the WORLD that have done that. Pretty incredible.

This company took off running FAST. But after a while, they weren’t running to huge sales numbers anymore…they were running from the law.

By 2008, only 3 years after launch, they were already facing a lawsuit from Imagenetix – a $2.75 BILLION lawsuit, to be exact – over trademark infringement. The case was settled outside of court, and Larsen probably toasted to that multiple times because a lawsuit like that could have shut them down instantly. [1]

That same year they butt heads with Amway on multiple occasions. A big scandal broke out when they saw that Orrin Woodward, a former top distributor for Amway, had teamed up with MonaVie, taking a $3 million loan from them to help him get his MLM TEAM (which I review here) off the ground. Copyright claims re: Amway’s compensation plan and recruitment practices abound. [2]

A 3-year-old MLM going up against Amway is like the Karate Kid trying to take down the Roman Empire. They should have known it wouldn’t work out.

But just one year later they got hit with another lawsuit from one of the biggest names in business: Oprah Winfrey. Oprah and Dr. Oz filed a suit against 40 different companies using acai berry in their products that had falsely claimed their products were backed by Dr. Oz and herself. She even called MonaVie out by name on her website. [3]

Unfortunately for Larsen, this was only the beginning of the lawsuits. But MonaVie wasn’t always on the receiving end.

In 2010 they filed a lawsuit against the trendy nutritional beverage MLM Zrii claiming that they copied MonaVie’s compensation plan. (PLEASE, pretty much every compensation plan nowadays is a copy of another one). [4]

Also in 2010, the circuit court of Miller County, Arkansas filed a class action lawsuit against MonaVie for false and misleading advertising as well as engaging in civil conspiracy. [5] The U.S. District Court of New Jersey filed a similar class action lawsuit in 2013 claiming violations to the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act. Florida filed yet another in 2014. [6]

Then, in 2014, a company named K2A filed a multi-million dollar suit against MonaVie for patent infringement and unpaid royalties. [7]

The list goes on and on and on…and on…and on.

TL;DR? MonaVie’s entire existence consisted of legal battles over false advertising, inflated pricing, false health claims, copyright infringement, patent infringement, illegal recruiting practices, and then some.

But wait, there’s more!

After years of exhausting and futile battles, it was announced in May 2014 that MonaVie had defaulted on a $182 million note securing assets of the company that had been issued in 2010.  [8]

On top of that, their employee stock program lost nearly all of its value, forcing the company to pay out a $19 million settlement on employee lawsuits in 2016. [9]

The company’s remaining assets were transferred to Jeunesse. MonaVie, which had not long ago been worth over a billion, was forclosed for a mere $15 million. [10]

Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

How much does MonaVie cost?
A startup kit at MonaVie costs $249.

Products

MonaVie sold a variety of nutritional bottled fruit juices. Like any good nutrition MLM, they also sold energy drinks, supplements, and weight loss products.

Their main gimmick was antioxidants, specifically from the acai berry. However, an analysis done by independent laboratory ChromaDex showed that the juices contained very low levels of antioxidants and vitamin C.

What’s more, a clinical study found that drinking MonaVie throughout pregnancy increased risks of complications, including cardiac problems and dysfunction at birth.

Opportunity

They did offer a 50% commission on personal sales, which is pretty damn good. But reps still couldn’t make good money.
Despite their rapid rise to fame and 10-figure annual sales numbers, apparently only 14% of MonaVie distributors made a prof
it. Any profit it all.

An astounding 86% of distributors didn’t even make enough money to pay off the cost of joining.

Recap

MonaVie’s rise to fame and subsequent crash and burn look pretty spectacular on paper.

It was pretty insane, but really, it’s just the arch of 99% of MLMs exaggerated a little. Most don’t ever make it near $1 billion in sales, but most are designed to fail so that the owners can cash out and move onto the next one.

As you can see, even with sales numbers that shot up faster than a rocket launcher, 99.9% of distributors didn’t get a piece of the pie…or even a bite.

If it’s financial freedom you seek and you like automated ways to build passive income, there are better ways.

(and you can trash those old MLM habits, too)

Why most MWR Life reps are completely broke

It’s hard to decide which MLM products are the shadiest…it might be financial coaching, but “tech” products and legal services are a close second, and let’s not forget travel and shopping discount memberships.

Well, MWR Life wraps them all up into one MLM-tastic package with a big, bright red sticker on top that says “sue us!”. Too harsh?

Company actually has done a few things right, despite major issues. Have I been involved?

Make sense? Either way, here’s the full review on MWR Life.

Overview

MWR stands for My Warranty Rewards, and the company is headquartered in Aventura, Florida.

They were founded by Jay Tuerk and Yoni Ashurov in 2014, and they’re currently operating only in the U.S. and Canada with Ashurov as their COE.

This company is pretty new, and they haven’t generated a ton of buzz yet (though there’s definitely some). This is another MLM that teaches distributors to target their “warm market” – family and friends. The warm market approach is also known as the lose all your friends, alienate all your family members, and get blocked on every social media channel approach. Works every time.

How much does MWR Life cost?

There are three different starter packages ranging from $99-$499. This MLM doesn’t have any actual products, so you’re not getting a giant box of miracle pills and eye cream if you buy the more expensive packages. All you’re getting is access to more aspects of the compensation plan.

  • Silver ($99): This is the basic package, and with it you’re partially eligible for the compensation plan, including customer bonuses, expansion bonuses, customer residuals, and team residuals.
  • Gold ($299): This is the builder package, and benefits include access to the full compensation plan, a founder position (lol @ paying $299 to be called a “founder”), “gold status” on your website, and eligibility for a $500 monthly 3×3 guarantee.
  • Platinum ($499): This is the success package, and it includes full eligibility for the compensation plan and everything else in the Gold package. In addition, you get a manager position, a qualified founder position, an MWR Academy certification, a 10% pay increase on personal production, and private coaching calls.

In order to stay active, you also have to make monthly payments to Biz Center to access websites and training materials, and that costs $30/month. In order to stay qualified (to receive commission), you need to be active and have at least 5 Customer Points. Each product package is worth 1-2 Customer Points.

This is getting to be a pretty expensive venture (over $1,000/year, in total, plus the initial investment).

Products

MWR Life doesn’t actually sell any products, but they do sell a huge array of “life-enhancing” services.

Financial Edge

These are there financial coaching services. The package comes with a variety of programs and training materials with different focuses, from budgeting, to credit scores, to savings and investment. The package includes:

  • CreditMAX
  • EquityMAX
  • MoneyMAX
  • WealthMAX

It retails for a whopping $79.97/month. I can give you some budgeting advice for free right here – spending 80 bucks a month is not budgeting and saving money.

Lifestyle Advantage

This is their discount and savings program that’s meant to help you find more affordable travel deals, retail products, and dining options. Their booking website supposedly has a “110% price savings guarantee”. The package includes

  • Travel Advantage
  • Shopping & Dining Mall
  • Grocery Getaway

It costs $49.97/month. Again, spending money to save money. It makes no sense, especially because their systems DON’T save you $50 a month. Often times, they don’t save you anything at all.

Life Essentials

This is a package that combines 10 of their most “essential” services, which you can also buy separately, into one monthly subscription. The membership includes:

  • Roadside Assistance
  • 24/7 Telemedicine
  • 24/7 Tech Support
  • 24/7 Personal Assistant
  • Legal Access Plus
  • Financial Coaching
  • Tax Hotline
  • Identity Theft Protection
  • Personal Accident Coverage
  • Worldwide Air Medical Evacuation

This package is $49.97/month.

Are these things actually “essential”? Some of them, like roadside assistance, tech support, and personal accident coverage are actually very beneficial to have…but you likely already have them. Your car insurance, the company that made your computer, and your credit cards offer all kinds of coverage that’s likely better than theirs.

Opportunity

Their website is full of stock photos of lambos and mansions in Malibu, but can you actually make money with MRW?

There are 11 ways to earn with this company. Here are the main routes.

Customer Commissions

Every time you enroll a new customer, you get a $25 one-time bonus. On top of that, you get anywhere from $.25-$8.00/month from customers throughout your organization, unlimited levels deep. The higher your rank, the higher your commissions.

Considering the high prices of their monthly memberships ($50+), these are pretty weak commission rates.

Team Commissions

You also get monthly residuals from distributors in your downline up to 7 levels deep. These commissions range from $.50-$3.00.

  • Level 1 – $.50
  • Level 2 – $.50
  • Level 3 – $1.00
  • Level 4 – $4.00
  • Level 5 – $1.00
  • Level 6 – $1.00
  • Level 7 – $3.00

If you start out as a gold or platinum member, you also get 25% commission on the entire pay of your direct recruits. Clearly they want you to buy in big, because that’s a much better deal than the standard commission rates.

Bonuses

MRW has a bonus structure that’s pretty similar to other MLMs. Most of their bonuses are given out if you can sell a lot in a short amount of time, especially within your first month, or once you start moving up to the top-level ranks. A lot of these bonuses require you to buy in at gold or platinum level.

Recap

This is one of those MLMs that doesn’t have a real product to stand on. They offer a variety of vague services, most of which your average person already has access to through other (far cheaper) means, such as their insurance, product warranties, credit cards, and AAA memberships.

The compensation plan is very, very top-heavy. Most people will earn nickels and dimes, but the few who make it to the very top will rake in the cash.

It’s a big risk though, considering it’s one of the most expensive MLMs I’ve reviewed if you want to access the compensation plan and stay qualified.

If it’s really financial freedom you seek and you like automated ways to build passive income, there are better ways.

(and you can trash those old MLM habits, too)
