Melaleuca
#1
Hi guys, have you heard of Melaleuca? They said they are consumer direct marketing but not a MLM company. Anyone know about this company? Thank you.

They're an MLM company. They try to convince people they are not, presumably because of the negative connotations from so many scams calling themselves MLM.

Best bet is to ask someone who works with it! I've reviewed there plan and found it quite complex. I believe it's a 5x7 forced matrix model, which means your team puts people in your organisation as well. One thing I don't like is a requirement to have monthly personal use purchases in order to qualify for commissions and bonuses. It's unclear to me whether product purchased for resale counts towards this, as you generally want all customers "enrolled".

Is it something like this? <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.network-marketing-business-school.com/Matrix-Plan.html">http://www.network-marketing-business-s ... -Plan.html</a><!-- m -->

May I know what is the difference between Amway and Melaleuca's marketing plan?

I've always been VERY uncomfortable with their product hype. I've heard some pretty outrageous claims being made about cancer prevention/cures for MS, etc from the few distributors I've bumped into

Amway's plan is what is called "stair-step breakaway" but there's a lot of myths about it. For example the link you gave said -

"One of the main advantages of the Matrix Plan over the Unilevel Plan and the Stair Step Breakaway Plan is once your frontline is full, your focus now changes towards developing your frontline distributors and assisting them to find and train their frontline distributors and so on."

When in reality the Amway plan is (a) very flexible, so some groups do this with Amway (b) has many additional incentives for building depth (ie helping downline distributors)

Mind you, a theoretical weakness of a matrix plan is that your income is limited, when in reality legitimate matrix companies include incentives to develop past this.

In other words, not simple description of a compensation plan is adequate!

In short though, the Amway plan is much more flexible than most others. Unlimited width, unlimited depth, focus on what you need to do to achieve whatever goal it is you want.

Oh my word! That's indeed taboo. When I present info, I always make sure to add that disclaimer about not making claims of treating, preventing, etc. Very slippery slope!

On another note, I tried Melaleuca for about 2 weeks or so. Didn't understand a thing. That was my last experience with direct sales until this year and that was almost 20 years ago! I do remember the process of getting paid to be a huge hassle. Had to call in commissions and such. Complicated steps to talking to the right person to report sales, etc. Just too much.

Loved some of the products though, great concept. Didn't seem to be a very friendly or warm company. Oh and my 1st couple of commission checks totaled $4.16 or something like that. The first couple of checks I got in my current company totaled $150 (Doesn't include product sales). Big difference.

Just my experience though.
