How many diamonds are there in Quixtar? I don't know. Nobody knows for sure except Quixtar and Quixtar isn't telling. I once emailed Quixtar to ask this question and I was told to ask the person who invited me to a meeting. IBOFightback recently wrote a post on his propaganda blog decrying Quixtar/Amway critics for creating an "echo chamber" effect where people searching for information will be mislead about how many diamonds there are in Quixtar. Of course, he doesn't criticize the corporation for not publishing this valuable and controversial piece of information.
On one of the Quixtar PR blogs, I posed a question (over a year ago) and Anna Bryce of Quixtar stated that there were 160 Diamondships in attendance to 2006 Diamond club. Assuming there were some absentees, there might be a few more than 160 Diamonds in Quixtar. 160+ Diamondships in nearly 50 years of existence is not much to get excited about. Also, in Quixtar, a diamond is not forever. Diamonds fall out of qualification, probably as often as a new one emerges.
IBOFightback talks about the thousands of people who may have achieved success thru this opportunity. He doesn't mention however, the MILLIONS who may have been harmed by participating in this wonderful opportunity, albeit possibly from a motivational organization and not necessarily from Amway, Quixtar or Alticor. Although the motivational organizations have mostly been allowed to operate freely to cause this harm, and blemish the corporation's reputation.
The point being missed here is that the more diamonds there are, it is likely that there will be more and more people who lose money. Nearly all diamonds that I know of hard sell their tapes, seminars and other support materials. Thus the more diamonds there are, the more downline, and probably more people on the system. The vast majority of people on the system lose money because of the system expenses. A lack of sales to non IBOs almost guarantees a loss for IBOs because the only way to increase volume without sales is to increase downline who then suffer the losses for you.
So does anyone really care about how many diamonds there are? If it's important enough, maybe Quixtar will publish it. Until then, the likes of IBOfightback and others are only guessing based on some of the numbers that Quixtar does reveal. The problem is the definition of an active IBO is from 2001, the average income is from another year, average diamond income is from 2005, yadda yadda yadda. Keep guessing, I'm done.
