Review of Arbonne International

Welcome to my review of the Arbonne business opportunity. Full disclosure, I am in no way associated with Arbonne International, and that I have yet to try any of the products. I do have friends who are involved with the opportunity though, and thus have sat through a presentation of the business opportunity. I can tell you with a straight face that Arbonne is not a scam, but rather is a 30+ year old international company based in Irvine, California with an highly favorable reputation. Arbonne has over 300 products in various product lines, such as anti-aging, baby care, teen, cosmetics, skin care, nutritional supplements, weight loss, aromatheraphy, etc.

Arbonne International was started in Switzerland in 1975 and moved to the U.S. in 1980. Its flagship Natural Swiss Pure Skin Care line was developed in Switzerland by Petter Morck and a group of bio-chemists. These products are based on natural botantical principles, use no animal products or by-products, undergo no animal testing, and are hypo-allergenic and environmentally safe. As I mentioned earlier there are over 300 products. They are all said to possess exceptional quality, but I have yet to determine their unique selling point. Their products are often compared to MaryKay and Avon. The skin care products do seem to generate the most attention, especially the Pure Swiss Skin Care line, but their customers and reps appear to be pleased with all fo the products. These products are sold all around the world and the demand is huge.

Arbonne's holding company did file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in January 2010, but the thousands of Arbonne distributors hardly noticed. That is, they are not affected other than the possibility that they might have to answer questions about the bankruptcy. Still it should be business as usual for the distributors as the organization restructures its debts. From what I understand, this holding company had this debt before they acquired Arbonne.

Arbonne is now owned by a different holding company and they got rid of 80% of the debt associated with the previous holding company during the reorganization. Because the Chapter 11 filing was successful, there is no lingering news out there about the bankruptcy, so most people will never hear about it. It's kind weird to assert after that kind of news that this appears to be a solid business opportunity, but it is. The distributors' network was never impacted by the filing, and Arbonne actually emerged from the bankruptcy more solid than ever.

As for the business opportunity, to become a consultant only costs $29 for the basic starter-kit. You can purchase a super-starter kit for $65 also, if you choose. Arbonne has a very lucrative uni-level compensation plan. There are 5 distinct business builder levels: Consultant with an average monthly income of $74.09 per month, District Manager averaging $236 per month, Area Manager averaging $1,173 per month, Regional Vice President averaging $4,778, and a National Vice President averaging $22,550 per month. I found the compensation plan to be kind of complicated for a potential newbie to try to explain, but the company does compensate its distributors handsomely. Arbonne pays up to 53.8% in commissions on every retail product sold. Still the potential to make huge money here is beyond dispute. But then this is a MLM company, so any earnings will largely rely on the skill, determination, and leadership ability of each consultant. Like most MLM companies, Arbonne distributors largely continue to build their businesses offline, instead of leveraging the power of the internet. Since Arbonne is already an international concern, distributors should learn how to leverage the power of the internet if they want to build a truly international business.

Thanks for checking out my review of the Max International opportunity and its flagship product Max GXL. This is an exciting and fast growing opportunity in the trillion dollar health and wellness industry.

No Kidding Ardyss International Has Nutrtional Supplements Too
In a word, yes, Ardyss International does indeed sell nutritional supplements, in addition to cosmetics and skin care products. No doubt, reshapers like the Body Magic and the Angel Bra receive far and away the most buzz. However, no MLM company can thrive without a product that keeps customers coming back for more, month after month. As a result, a consumable product is normally the flagship of any multi-level or network marketing company. We are talking about vitamins, foods, juices, soaps,...

Bellamora Review
Bellamora is new and exciting entrant to the Network Marketing industry. It just launched in January of 2011 after a very successful prelaunch where they offered free samples of the product. Full disclosure, I am in no way affiliated with Bellamora, nor have I personally sampled the product. Bellamora has a patented skin care formulation that is the result of two decades and $8 billion of research. The actual formula was accidentally discovered by retired chiropractor, Dr. Bruce Miller. This...

Compression Garments Benefits
I hope that you enjoy this look at the benefits of compression garments. People normally think about slimming or weight loss when considering the benefits of compression garments such as girdles, corsets, stays, etc. Also known as shapewear, compression garments instantly shape and slim the body by flattening desired areas such as the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, back, and thighs. Compression garments, such as the Body Magic by Ardyss International, can give you a whole new slimmer look and...

ASEA Independent Review
In this review of the Asea Opportunity we will look at the Three P's of Asea, the Product, the People, and the Plan. Full disclosure, I am not in any way affliated with Asea, but I do have a friend and fellow marketer who is involved. Anyway, we will start with the product. Asea claims to be a category creator, that is they have done something that has not been done before. Their representatives are quick to state that they are not a juice company, although their flagship product is a liquid...
