As of 2015, Nu Skin, Organo Gold, Pure Romance and Young Living Essential Oils are all popular multi-level marketing companies. Amway, Avon and Herbalife are older companies that still remain popular as well.
Some highly regarded companies are newer. Organo Gold was officially started in 2010, and Young Living Essential Oils began in 1993. Other companies were started much earlier but remain popular. Tupperware is still sold through multi-level marketing techniques, and Mary Kay makeup products are popular cosmetics. Pampered Chef is a well-known supplier of kitchen supplies.
People who are interested in getting involved with multi-level marketing have plenty of companies to choose from, each with a different focus. Financial expert Dave Ramsey recommends that people new to this kind of marketing choose a product they are passionate about. People interested in alternative health could look into a company that sells supplements, such as Isagenix, while people interested in fashion may do better with a jewelry company such as Origami Owl. This helps marketers stay focused and enthusiastic about their products.
New direct marketers should also be mindful of their business practices. They need to be honest about their income when recruiting new distributors. They also must avoid misrepresenting their products. It's important for them to recognize when they are alienating friends and family by constantly talking about their new business venture.
