Have you heard of it? If so what have you heard? I want to know peoples opinions? If you haven't heard of it say so.
DONT SELL IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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...
dont do it !!!
I purchase a larger bottle of tea oil at a department store for under $6.00; the Melaluca brand is three times the cost, same size. Melaluca may be better quality, though; I'm not sure.
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!
MLM is a terrible way to make money.
Because they tell you "it's easy, it sells itself".
They'll also say "do it part time, just a few hours a week".
And when that doesn't work for you, they'll tell you you need to invest more time and to get serious with it.
If you're thinking of joining an MLM, first do a Google search for mlm deception.
I'm going to try it. i just wanted some feedback. I'm not trying to get richI But I do want honest opinions. Thanks
This!!!! Its such a bad idea!!! Its so sneaky in its wording, they try to make it all..oh no, this istn MLM..but it really is.
Never heard of the company/store. We can buy it in the supermarket in Australia. Great for stings and respiratory issues etc.
I have used their products - and love them. However, since we are a family of four on one budget, they were a little too pricey for me. I have never sold any of their products however.
What I'm learning is f you are a preferred customer, you can buy the products at wholesale prices. They are actually cheaper.
I don't see a bad thing about trying to get people to want to switch to a brand of products that are safer for them and the earth. It kind of makes me feel good. Is that wrong?
Thanks for being honest you guys.
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!
Bookmark this thread and a year from now come back and tell us how you still feel about it.
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.
35% of what you pay goes to the cost of the products. 65% of what you pay goes to a pyramid scheme.
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.
not at all. the products are good.
but you do need to consider the business.
suppose you dont earn a penny, in fact. like my mother who said all you are saying now, you loose hundreds. BUT your ok with that, because they are healthy products.
conisder the fact that you are now helping, supporting, and promoting a company that will swindle more mothers out of hundreds of dollars.
You can find good healthy products elsewhere.
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.
I hate sams club, and walmart. so I may not be the right person to be asking.
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.
I brought up the same comparison in hub/agel_vs_pills which I published 3 years ago.
Nothing has changed. Except for the price of these MLM products going up.
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.
Just another MLM. Products typically of good quality but high priced. I've used their Laundry Soap... it's okay. But I didn't buy it.

Question: Is your Network Marketing Busniess costing you money? yes? It's not your fault it's just that nobody has ever shown you how to do things right. They've never given you the keys to unlock your full potential...
