Arbonne International has become a contender in the competitive cosmetic industry. This business review will give an unbiased look at the company.
Most people would think that a cosmetics company was created by a woman. That is not the case with Arbonne. A gentleman by the name of Petter Mørck collaborated with a group of expert chemists, biologists, and herbalists back in 1970's.
When Petter met with these experts, he shared his vision of creating quality skin care products not matched by anyone else. The product line began in Switzerland and arrived in the United States in the early 1980's.
Arbonne International cosmetics and skin care products are now distributed globally. The Arbonne comp plan is that of an MLM setup. The products are distributed by a network of Independent Consultants.
You can become an Arbonne International distributor (consultant) by purchasing a starter kit. There are two options available: Basic Starter kit for $29 and the Super kit for $65. Your "residual income" comes in the form of network marketing.
As with other MLM opportunities, you earn commissions by sharing or selling the products with family & friends. The passive income comes from sponsoring new consultants and earning off of their efforts.
What You Should Know
Arbonne's products are unique, specially formulated natural products. Most people who try the products thoroughly enjoy them. However, the product line is quite pricey. Although they are very good, a lot of people will not be able to afford them on a monthly basis.
The other truth is that while some people are earning a significant income with Arbonne, or any other MLM program, the majority of distributors aren't. The facts are that 97% of people who give MLM a try will ultimately fail in the end. So why is this? Well for starters, it takes awhile before you will see a lot of income. Many want to be success stories give up within the first 6 months of signing up. It is not until after those first 6 months that most distributors will begin to see a profit.
Some people will try to tell you that the comp plan is that of a get rich quick scheme. It is definitely not that, but it is also not for the faint of heart either.
The vast majority of people do not succeed because of unattainable goals, but because they quit too soon.
If you are interested in selling quality cosmetics, Arbonne International is a good option. However, there are several other business opportunities available if you are in the market for an online opportunity.
