What is the Melaleuca Business Opportunity?
Melaleuca’s product line includes nutritional supplements, healthy snacks, personal care items–like toothpaste, lotion, shampoos, deodorants, cosmetics and fragrances—and eco-friendly cleaning products for the home. Many of the products contain natural tea tree oil, which is known to have anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties.
The compensation plan is a bit unusual, compared to most other network marketing companies. It is described as a 7-level, open ended matrix. (I have to say, I have never come across a plan quite like this one.)
In researching the business opportunity itself, I found more disgruntled distributors than happy ones, mostly due to the pay plan. From what I could gather, most felt that it was more difficult to earn a good income here, than with other mlm opportunities they had experienced.
The products themselves are apparently quite good and have many raving fans. So if one could set up a business model, solely based on huge volumes of retail sales, my guess is that it could work well. Remember though, it looks like you would need lots of retail buyers AND business builders. Again, the feedback in various articles and forum postings is that the products are wonderful but the business opportunity is not the best one out there. (Sorry Melaleuca. The truth hurts…)
Cost to enroll: $29.
Monthly autoship requirement: This is based on a point system, rather than dollars, and different products carry different values. From what I can tell, you can fulfill the 35 point requirement for $75 or less.
Pros: In-demand nutritional supplement products and eco-friendly cleaning products have good retail sales potential; Low cost of entry.
Cons: That pesky compensation plan looks to be quite unpopular with current and former reps.
As always, do your due diligence.
To your success!
