Multi-level Marketing is a strategy used by some direct sales companies to encourage their existing distributors to recruit new distributors, and the company pays existing distributors a percentage of the recruits’ sale. MLM is a legitimate business and should not be mistaken with pyramid schemes, though it is controversial to become the latter. Scams arise when an MLM sales person acts as an agent or Contractor to recruit others on a fee, promise them big money with little work and guarantee them high-income projection.

Have you ever been recruited into network marketing deals that seem like some pyramid or money game? Pyramid schemes are illegal and are based on taking advantage of people, to fuel their desire into joining the marketing program, based on anticipation of high income from the commissions. For someone to actually make money in pyramid schemes, someone else has to lose money. Network marketing is not a get-rich-quick scheme, and anyone promoting it from this dimension is possibly a scammer.
In 1975, a Swiss gentleman, Petter Morck and a group of biochemists, biologists, and herbalists developed a company that produced skin care products that are based on botanical principles. Arbonne Company developed and sold all its products in Switzerland until 1980 when it expanded to the United States. The botanical products from Arbonne Company have become a reality in the United States, and it is shared throughout the world through Arbonne’s network of Independent Consultants. Arbonne’s product line has since grown to include health and beauty products that are unparalleled in quality, safety, value, benefits, and results.
The company focuses on botanical skin care products ranging from aromatherapy, make-up, health, and nutrition. Their products are of high quality and are beneficial to the inward and outward wellness for people of all ages. Arbonne does not hide the ingredients used in making their products. They list all the ingredients on their website with detailed explanations.
Arbonne International is an MLM company meaning that anyone can grow their business by recruiting others into the business who will in turn recruit others. The Arbonne’s compensation plan allows one to receive commissions of a few levels and encourages you to grow in width. If you love product parties, hotel presentations, and recruiting your friends and family working as a salesperson at Arbonne may be the right business for you. This business venture, however, requires one to be smart and hardworking to achieve a significant income.
Arbonne provides its independent consultants a lot of incentives and bonuses. Independent consultants are liable to receiving a 35% discount off the retail purchase prices. Consultants can also earn some money for sponsoring clients in their down lines. The consultants can get a complimentary product if they order a Success Park or make a 250 QV purchase during their first month.
If you are planning to join Arbonne International, make sure you have a passion for Arbonne’s beauty products or in the business opportunity. Most people are interested in working with Arbonne due to the low cost of entry to own their business and a chance to be successful. To maximize your Arbonne business venture, you will need to build a large distribution channel thus getting a great opportunity to building a long term positive income.
Is the Company a Scam or Not?
Branding a company as scam is a matter that require much review, research and debate. Soma people think its a scam others think different. The main reason most people believe that Arbonne International is a scam is that of their independent consultants. Arbonne International has a lot of leaders who have different ways of promoting its products and business. This means that the quality of sales varies with different teams and leaders.
Most Arbonne team leaders will request the new members to list down their contacts whom they think might be interested in the products. The new salespersons would then be given a sales script to guide them to call the contacts in the list. The team leaders then propose that you should arrange an appointment with your prospects. The team leader will tag along to show you how to conduct an appointment. If the prospects do not sign up then, you are subjected to follow-up.
The idea of earning a lot of money may not be true. The Arbonne’s consultant team provides the salespersons with a small commission for selling their beauty products. Arbonne has a lower profit margin making the average income of Independent consultants small. When you factor in all of the traveling and face-to-face customer time, you are most likely losing money.
Another potential downside to Arbonne is that they limit internet marketing ability. For one to access the internet, you will have to pay for an Arbonne website. The company does not allow its salespersons to recruit people online. With the internet been the future, Arbonne is missing. Arbonne officials claim that the business is only based on relationship marketing but more and more people are moving toward doing more business online.
In conclusion, you cannot earn a good sum of money overnight. Most of the people who think Arbonne is a scam is mostly because they have failed in their marketing. For you to succeed in this venture, you must be a good salesperson with great marketing and lead generation skills. If you are serious about your economic future and would like to earn an income with flexible working hours, I would highly suggest Arbonne International.
