Its ok, the stuff works, but its way overpriced no one will buy it and besides that, the whole scheme is to get more people under you to sell, there isnt much money in the actual sellgin of product. Oh, but I the make up is pretty fun..I mean... its a bad bad bad idea!! my Mom lost hundreds of dollars...
I love their products, especially the laundry system. It last sooooo long and with a family of 9 it helps. They do require that you buy a monthly number of points, and that can be hard to fulfill at times, but if you have other people to help you buy them it can be easy. If you are a good sales person you may be able to do it as a business, but I am not a sales person so the business didn't go well for me....I still buy their products! My advice is to try it. You can always cancel!
I bought some of their products - with half-an-idea of joining them. The products were create! 2 litres of clothes washing liquid lasted me 2 years! But I couldn't come to the grips with their business structure...
I love their products, and am always happy to be gifted with anything from Melaleuca by my cousin who has been in the business for a very long time. As for the MLM structure, learn all you can before making a commitment.
that's the lure these mlm companies use. and they go to great expense to try to bring people in, the wholesale price is one way, health, wealth... I looked into a mlm company out of CA that seemed like it had the cure to everything. when my brother-in-law started telling me more how it works, I said, forget it. it sounded like brainwashing to me how the mlm structure operates.
I wouldn't waste my time if I were you, especially if they're asking for a financial investment, which many of them require. you may find yourself stuck with a lot of product!
Fluffymetal, I'd like to add another thought here for you.
Many years ago, a friend of mine became involved in a nutritional supplement company (not Melaleuca) and asked if I'd use some of the protein products in my baked goods. I agreed...it seemed like such a good idea. I modified my recipes, incorporating the protein products, and the results were quite good and probably nutritious. He liked them and bought them.
Then one day, he asked if I'd like to host a party to show off these baked goods, and I agreed. I invited mutual friends and people from a list my friend provided, and we had a lovely evening. At the end of the evening, my friend said to me, "So, what's your interest here? Do you want to get on the bandwagon with these products or not?"
I was stunned...what he was looking for was someone to join his MLM team, but he had never told me that. I'd been baking these treats, in a business agreement with him, he the buyer and I the supplier. And that was fine. But now, he was wanting to change the agreement between us.
I had to wonder what lack of honesty an MLM structure demands in order to succeed. Clearly, he had something on his mind, something different from what was on my mind, from the beginning.
I by no means am a deceiving person or a sales person. I should have confided on the forums before I jumped to this, but what I will say is this... take the money aside and pretend I wouldn't be earning any money for recommending these products ( I didn't get in this to get rich - just a little extra cash)... is it wrong that I do want to recommend these products because they are healthier and safer.
good point, but the more I read the more it seems to be like purchasing a Sam's membership with a commitment to buy at least $50 dollars a month of their variety of products. BUT that was the part I didn't catch when I signed up.
If the programme is fairly new – products have not saturated the market, you don’t just make a little cash but a lot of cash. In fact there is so much cash in it that you may soon start wondering why we have poor people in this world. The bad thing is that it’s only about 1% of those who join that make that kind of money. The other 99% will live to curse that programme.
When you sell (recommend) the products, you do it to your friends and associates. Then the question is: are you willing to recommend some vitamins tablets to your friends for $100 dollars when they can buy the same for $30 in the local stores? If you are comfortable with that, then go ahead and join the programme.
I know of very many people who are successful in this whilst at the same time I know of even a bigger number of people who joined such programmes and are very unhappy because they wasted their money and time.
If I am your friend, I do not expect you to put me in trouble when at the back of your mind you know very well that what you are recommending to me is sugar coated poison.
Surprisingly, you will find your local doctors and nurses in it.
There products are really cheaper than brand names at stores like walmart, but I'm going to stop talking about it b/c I don't want to sound like I'm using this thread to sell anything. I just wanted to know what people have heard.
I was interested in it for a while until I realized that you have to be a paying customer in order to sell the products. To change all your products at once (you have to buy a minimum amount, don't remember what it is) is just not feesible if you can't afford it.
