The basis of any business is having products that have a market demand. If you have that, then you have a business. Critics of Amway and other companies that use MLM as a marketing strategy regularly claim the products are “over-priced junk”. Remarkably, when I’ve asked them how many of the products they’ve actually tried, the answer is almost always none. They’re judging the quality and value of products they’ve never tried.
So I thought I’d help them out. Look Magazine in the UK recently reviewed Artistry Advanced Skin Refinisher. The called it –
The Skin Refinisher That Will Change Your Life
And as for the price?
At £53.35 per 30ml bottle, it’s tonnes cheaper than a trip to the dermatologist’s, yet gives an impressively similar result.
So, if you’re a person evaluating Amway or Amway’s products, it’s a simple question. Who do you believe about the quality and value of Amway’s products? Someone who has never tried them, or expert evaluations by people who actually have?
And here’s a thought – why not try them out? There’s a money back guarantee if you don’t think they’re good value.
Most IBOs would be aware of various “claims” about Amway’s products and sales that are backed up by research done by Euromonitor International. I’ve just discovered Euromonitor actually has a page on their website describing some of the claims and their methodology. Worth a look! The claims listed are –
- Since 1959, Amway has paid out more bonuses and cash incentives to its distributors worldwide than any other direct sales company in history.
