A while back I did a video on whether you SHOULD join an MLM and whether you have decided that, YES you will, or you're still doing your research (which I think is awesome of you!) I thought I'd share a quick list of companies that you can join today!!!
These are 20 MLM companies that are established and running smoothly. Some of these are older companies that have been around for a long time and some are pretty new but have been doing very well in the industry.I tried to share both really unique companies and some classics :)
I tried to make sure that I only shared companies that I know. I have not been a member of all of these but I know people who are, who have been, or who use the products. There are sooo many companies out there so it's important to know that these are NOT the only ones. (I purposely left out a few that I don't like because I feel like they have shady business practices and if you would like to know which ones those are, I will gladly share my opinion in private, so comment below.) The companies are in alphabetical order because I didn't want to rate them or anything like that, I think that there is a product or service out there for everyone and, how "good" a company is, is completely reliant on how much passion the person offering it has.
MLM members rely on their voice heard being and people seeing their products so I asked friends of mine to share their links and statements telling you what they think about the companies they've joined. I genuinely believe that there is good and bad in every company so I've asked for positive statements only. If you'd like to ask deeper questions and know more of the possible challenges you might face, please contact each person through their site individually :)
Below, I will also, link a few websites that are great databases to find more information on MLM companies. Please click on the underlined statements to visit the company's direct sites.
1. Ambit is an energy company.
This is a really interesting company! Most of the time when you think of MLM, you don't think about your utility bill (unless you buy a lot of makeup every month) and yet this company has created a business opportunity from the ability to help people set up their homes. It is such a unique opportunity and it requires a love of genuinely wanting people to have the best deal! :)
- Lawrence W. Crow
"Ambit Energy is a company positioned in the deregulation of energy industry. It is a unique company because of the fact it has one product. Like most MLM companies success can depend on your upline. I was blessed with an amazing upline that really got me off to a fast start. I have found Ambit Energy to be a competitive product with a strong compensation plan."
- Leroy Johnson
2. Arbonne is a skincare and health company.
"A lot of people have so many preconceived notions about MLMs .... and I know a lot of people will talk about the freedom and flexibility MLMs offer you as well as the opportunity to make far more money working fewer hours, and all of those things are great, but what a lot of people don't consider is the incredible opportunity you have to build long-term WEALTH as opposed to just a residual income. Many people are so preoccupied with earning an immediate income that they forget to focus on the building blocks that will make their business far more valuable and sustainable in the long run.... My business is willable, which means if anything happens to me, my husband will continue to get checks from Arbonne for fifteen years. If I have a solid business built, that kind of financial help is invaluable. I am literally building my future family's security and peace of mind with every step that I take in my business. It's hard work and requires patience, but the payoff is far beyond anything I can earn at a 9-5 job."
- Kristina Baldwin
3. Avon Products is a beauty, household, and personal care company.
OH the Avon Lady is at the door!! Knock Knock! :) My mom was the Avon lady and so I have a special love for this company. I used to go walking with her and helped her go door to door to sell beauty products. These days it's much easier to run a business online and it doesn't require so much walking!
- Cait Pendergrass
"Avon is a great company that's been around for over a century, and is an icon. They offer affordable products for everyone! It's a great company to work with because you'll get a free eStore and there are no monthly quotas to fill. You can sell at your own pace and they offer a great compensation plan, along with generous leadership bonuses when you build a team....It means that I can work from home, building a business, while providing my customers with great service on affordable products. Building my team means that I can empower women to work for themselves, while growing a successful business."
- Melissa Hagan
"when I had to stop working after the birth of my 3rd child, I am a stepmom also so I have 4 children under the age of 7 in my home my oldest 2 both having special behavior needs. You know what that means? Lots of child care expenses. This decision was not easy at all for me to stay home, I had been working for 10 years straight....I started looking into direct sales which I was brand new to and....Avon stuck out to me.....I have made a lot of friends, and relationships either it be with customers or other Avon reps. There is support and ideas for my Avon business all over social media as well, so I never feel like I’m doing this by myself. I’m also part of an amazing team of women(and a few great men). We all are in easy access to each other, weather it’s for ideas, or celebrating success. It’s an Avon family. One team, one Avon."
4. Barefoot Books is a children's book company.
I love Barefoot books, it's another one of those super unique companies that sell a unique product, BOOKS! They specifically sell books for kids and allow for the people buying the books to also sell them. I have bought books from them and while I don't have kids, yet, I love the idea of being able to share my love of books with my kids and working it into a business opportunity. barefootbooks.com
5. Beachbody is a fitness and nutrition company.
I started my health coaching business as a Beachbody coach and I loved the passion that people had for the world of fitness!
"Beach body changed my life. That sounds cliche but its deeper than that. Through beach body I have made supportive, charismatic friends. I get to help people while working on myself. I really love the personal development piece - not just about being physically healthy, mental health is important too. This is really a holistic focus and THAT has been a blessing"
- Laura Bekkerus
6. Cutco is a cookware company.
I personally have a cutco knife in my kitchen, it's the one in all my cooking pictures because I absolutely love it. It technically belongs to my brother-in-law but I do the cooking and he won't notice when it's gone (muahaha). 7. Direct Cellars is a wine club company.
- Vanessa Esquibel
"Direct Cellars, has expanded my Pallet and appreciation of Premium Wine from around the world. It has also allowed me to share my love of wine with other's, as well as receiving weekly and monthly residual income. I am excited to see where this journey will take me, and I am passionate about connecting and helping other's do the same. At the end of the day it is all about the wine."
- Kelly Bobbin
8. DoTERRA is an essential oils company.
"I’ve been using DoTERRA and building a business for the last 5 years. DoTERRA has empowered me to take a natural approach to my health and wellness.... DoTERRA has truly changed my life and the lives of many of my family and friends. "
- Nancy Toia-Mitchell
"DōTERRA has changed my life in so many different ways. Because of DōTERRA, I don’t have daily back pain anymore, I have a healthier gut (and I lost weight without trying), my emotional health is good, I don’t get sick as often, and I learned how to make my home toxic free. It has also provided me with a financial income. Now I help others learn these same things, so they can live a healthier life too. I believe my purpose in life is to help improve the lives of as many people as possible."
- Certified Essential Oils Coach Marissa Gaston
9. Forever Living is a health and nutrition company.
I will forever remember the mini milk gallon looking containers that were in our fridge as a kid. My mom has struggled with autoimmune health problems her whole life and this was one of the companies that she trusted. It started the Aloe Vera craze and if you ever go into Mexican Carnicerias, you know they have these products behind the display.
10. Jafra is a beauty, skincare, and spa company.
Jafra is a big company but it's not as big of a household name these days. My mom sold it when we were kids and I still have great memories of the products we used. My mom also gained a lot of training in beauty and business through them. I genuinely believe this is a company to check out.
"I've been with Jafra for a little over 2 years now. I've had months where I've totally knocked it out of the park and months that haven't been so stellar. But the great thing about it, is I still get support and encouragement. The Jafra community is absolutely amazing and honestly cares about YOUR goals."
- Heather Malm
11. Leggings Army is an apparel company.
With the growing trend of Athleisure Wear it makes sense that companies would embark on the MLM route to distribute their merchandise. This is a fairly new company that was just founded in 2014!
- Stephanie Gonzales
12. MaryKay is a cosmetics and personal care company.
MaryKay is synonymous with Multi-Level Marketing. Maybe you've seen their pink vehicles around town? This company gives you a bright pastel pink car (or lately i've seen Cadillacs) when you reach their upper levels. They have been around since the dawn of time, just kidding...but Mary Kay Ash, the founder of the company, is a role model to all Women and Entrepreneurs alike!
13. Melaleuca is a health, household, and personal care company.
Melaleuca may sound like your average health and wellness MLM but it's not! It's basically an online grocery store that allows you make money from your regular household shopping. This company does require that you be invited in order to shop with them!
