Is Herbalife a Scam?
Herbalife International has been in business for over 30 years offering health care products through a global network of independent distributors. Their focus is in helping people improve their health through nutritional, weight-loss and personal care products which can be purchased in 75 countries throughout the world.
This Herbalife Review will give you a look inside the company and their rich history, an overview on their world famous products, and an honest review of the business opportunity.
If you’re new to the network marketing industry, I highly recommend you read this before you join Herbalife International. Not only will you learn more about the company and their products but I will expose a marketing flaw that most Herbalife distributors make when first getting started and how to avoid this costly mistake.
What is Herbalife International?
Herbalife International is one of the oldest network marketing companies in existence today. They were founded in 1980 by Mark Hughes who pioneered the industry and made Herbalife a globally recognized name. He dreamed of “a future brilliant beyond compare”.
This dream came true for Mark as his nutritional company become a dominant player in not only the network marketing industry but in the nutritional industry as well.
Today the company operates in 75 countries, employees over 4,000 people around the world, and has a network of independent distributors numbering over 2 million. Unfortunately, Mark Hughes passed away in 2000 but his company and dream continues to live on.
Some interesting facts about Herbalife International:
- Publicly traded company on the NYSE (ticker symbol: HLF)
- Member of the accredited Better Business Buerau (BBB) and Direct Selling Association (DSA)
- Reported sales of $2.7 billion in 2010
With over 30 years of experience, Herbalife International has a top-notch product line for anyone wanting to improve their health, become more fit or just feel and look better!
Herbalife is most known for their weight-loss supplements but their other product niches are starting to gain momentum in an extremely competitive market. These other areas include skin and hair care products, energy and fitness products, and targeted healthcare solutions related to one’s digestive system, immune system and cardiovascular system.
It is safe to say that all of Herbalife’s products have been thoroughly researched, tested and are proven to work. Because of their product diversification, I believe Herbalife may be the best nutrition based business opportunity on the planet.
The Truth about the Herbalife Business Opportunity
Herbalife is first and foremost a nutrition company who is in business to make a profit. That being said, there is no doubt the desire for the Herbalife corporate team is to help Herbalife distributors make an enormous amount of money if they wish to do so. The question to ask is “how”?
According to the 2010 “Statement of Average Gross Compensation” the average annual compensation of active Herbalife leaders was $7,100.
This may come as a shock to some but I’m not surprised at this low number. People who join Herbalife with the intent to use their products and share them with their sphere of influence should not have the expectations that they will become wealthy or be able to replace their incomes.
Some people may even think that just by joining the Herbalife business opportunity the money will just start coming in. This is absolutely absurd and chances are these types of people won’t last long.
If you’re serious about building a substantial income with Herbalife I have a few suggestions that can give you an edge on 95% of your competition and catapult you to the top of the leaderboards.
What I’m about to share with you has allowed a small percentage of network marketers to experience incredible growth and financial success for their respective businesses. These principles and marketing strategies are universal, which means anyone can apply these strategies no matter their experience or the business opportunity they are associated with.
How to Win With Herbalife
When you join as a distributor with Herbalife you’re either going to make money or you’re not. In other words, you are going to win or lose. The results are completely up to you and no one else.
What you need is a “marketing blueprint” that will guarantee your success. You need something that is proven to work so that you start making money from the beginning.
In order to win with Herbalife you need to become a winner at two things: Sales and Recruiting. It is important to realize that when you join Herbalife you are signing up for a sales and recruiting position.
The top 2.4% of Herbalife distributors earn over $95,000 a year. These people are great at sales and recruiting.
In order to complete a sale or recruit another Herbalife distributor you need a lead. This is a common denominator for not only Herbalife but every network marketing business in the world. Without a viable source of leads it’s impossible to make any money in this industry.
Your upline may tell you to make a list of friends, family and co-workers who you can talk to about your new business. Unfortunately, most of these people are not interested and this will only lead to frustration and embarrassment.
Trying to tell everyone you know about your business is a costly mistake that 95% of network marketers make. You may experience success in the short-term but it’s not a long-term marketing strategy I would suggest.
What you need is an endless supply of leads to talk to about your business. The question is “how”?
The answer can be found in a marketing strategy called Attraction Marketing. This one strategy has allowed thousands of people to generate 10, 20, 50 or more targeted leads a day who want to know more about your business.
This eliminates the need to talk to your friends and family or even tell them you joined a network marketing business.
Attraction Marketing is a learned skill that takes time and work, but once mastered, can fuel your business with an endless supply of leads.
