Amway Global - Prospecting?

Network marketing, own your own business, ecommerce, private franchises. These are some of the common buzzwords that many IBOs have used in the past as a way to get someone curious enough to see the Amway marketing plan. Our group was told not to disclose the Amway name unless directly asked.

I believe this method is still used today, except that I haven't seen any single particular approach recently. I know of one particular blogger has been very active in informing IBOs that they should not be advertising their business on Craigslist. I do see some IBOs still trying to gain prospects on myspace and facebook. Some of these IBOs really need to keep their stories consistent though. LOL One dude on facebook prospected my and said he made $5000 a month in Amway. A month later, he forgot who I was and tried to prospect me again and this time he said he made $80,000a year. When I asked him about the discrepancy, he decided to put me on ignore. LOL

So IBOs, are you honest about what you are trying to sell? Do you hide the Amway name? Are you still trying the curiosity approach? Do you outright lie about the Amway opportunity? Are you prospecting people online? Are you hanging out at Starbucks and at malls looking for "sharp" people?

I find the whole thing funny. And what's also funny is that I did this once upon a time. LOL :D

What are you talking about?

Wow, you're such a sharp guy Joecool so sharp in fact that you were able to spot and correct your article error from "sharr" to "sharp". Next time I won't be as generous to spot your orthographical errors and will be silent about it.

Yes yes, let's look at semantics and ignore the FACT that most IBOs cannot sell products.

Oh... did you sell product? If so, why did you quit?

Joecool said...

I quit because at 4000 PV with good parameters, I wasn't making money.

I sold a few PVs worth of product and made $20. I wasn't making money but I used that virtual money for a good dinner at the Chinese buffet and the buffet staff fell for it! Free dinner for me!

Just this week, I did not know it was Scamway until I got there. Had I known it was Scamway, I would have saved a few gallons of gas!

I have been an IBO for 2 years and I tell people that I do Amway. The company is a multi-billion dollar company and is established in its own right. So far, the business is progressing well, and I even qualified for trips.

I find it interesting that everyone is so against this company. It is a debt free company that hasn't needed any government bailouts, has made normal average individuals a good extra income. It is like any other business, you have to work hard. How could it be such a scam when stores that i am sure you shop from (best buy, 1800contacts, cabelas, and about 50plus other national brand stores) have become affiliate partners with Amway Global. Maybe if you people that have done this "scamway" thing spent as much time building the business as you do badmouthing it, you might be at least a platinum right now.

I lost my best friend to Amway.

The first (WORST) thing that happened is that he stopped drinking beer. He is still around, but about 2 months ago he quit his Job, and now all he does is sit around his house with his girlfriend and he surfs in the morning. But he still doesn't drink Beer. What an idiot.

Amway has got partner store like Harvey Norman, Office Max,Optus, Real insurance, Hertz car rental and MasterCard provides credit card for Amway. Such big and reputed companies operating sucessfully in the worldwide market are part of the Amway business. Moreover Amway is a company in the fortune 500 companies. The founders of Amway have been the chair of US chamber of commerce for 2 generations. These companies have their own team of accountants, lawyers and financiers.

You guys are indeed very sharp. So many qualified people could not find any fault with Amway which has been doing business sucessfully in 120 countries for the past 50 years.

Other visitors of this page please use the brain that god gave you and don't fall trap to such false propaganda. If not ask for facts from your prospector or research for yourself.

Cheers

Don't lose heart
