Amway Australia’s website, called a2k.com.au until recently, has again been announced as one of Australia’s most popular websites by Hitwise, an independent site traffic monitoring company. From the announcement email -
Congratulations! Hitwise is pleased to announce that www.a2k.com.au is a Hitwise Top 1 Award winner for the quarter ending ending July – September 27.
During this period, www.a2k.com.au ranked No. 2 by visits among all Australian websites in the Hitwise Shopping and Classifieds – Wholesale and Relationship Sales industry.
The Hitwise Top 1 Award recognises websites from over 16 industries that are leaders in their industry and brings with it the benefit of using the Hitwise Top 1 Award shield (pictured right).
a2k has won these awards consistently since it was launched in April 2. Indeed if I recall correctly it did so well that a number of the “traditional” retailers pushed Hitwise to create the separate “Wholesale and Relationship Sales” category so that Amway’s performance didn’t continue to outshine them. Obviously the internet landscape has changed somewhat since then, but a2k has continued to perform. I’ve little doubt the new rebranded www.amway.com.au will continue to be just as successful.

As Amway and Quixtar Business Owner’s know, Euromonitor International has certified that the supplement brand marketed exclusively by Amway and Quixtar, Nutrilite (marketed as Nutriway in Scandinavia and Australia/New Zealand), is the world’s best selling nutritional brand. Unfortunately “proof” of this claim has previously remained buried either in confidential reports or alternatively in Euromonitor reports that costs hundreds of dollars. Skeptics and critics of Amway and Quixtar have understandably queried the claim.
Well, earlier this year, Alticor asked Euromonitor to publicly verify the claim. Here it is.
