Forever Living Products business model a la Amway

Recently, there was an invitation from Forever Living Products business meeting. The speakers at the meeting said that it was a good business opportunity. They also said that anybody could become a member by paying Rs. 10 and get an identification number. Then they could purchase products from the company at a discount and sell the same to make good profit. The key point here is all the products are exorbitantly priced. The toothpaste alone costs Rs. 220. Who would buy a toothpaste at such a price. Other products also are equally highly priced. The members are offered a huge discount of 45 per cent. The members are free to enrol members and there is no compulsion. If they enrol they get commission on their business too. Here comes the money circulation scheme. More members they enrolled they get more commission on their business also. They get discount of 45 per cent and depending upon the number of members they get commission of varied percentage. Now what is the original cost of products and how much the company is making on the maxim retail price of the products. If this is not money circulation scheme what else.

How much do other brands of toothpaste cost?

Oh no. Higher volume means more money. Sounds like free enterprise to me.

Tex, It is also a money circulation scheme.

In your dreams, you don't even know what a money circulation scheme is, all you can do is repeat the mantra....money circulation scheme...money circulation scheme...money circulation scheme...money circulation scheme...money circulation scheme...money circulation scheme...money circulation scheme...money circulation scheme....LOL!!!

You are making a poor comparision of oranges to bananas. They are differet, can't be compared. Forever Living Toothpast does't haves fluoride, are good against gengivites, is tooth brighter, and finished my bucal lesions. Forever living products are cheaper than the products that does the same. US$ 12 by a solar protector with 30% aloe vera is a high cost???

It is the money circulation scheme which is behind the exorbitant price of all these products. That is the criminal part of the whole exercise.

just dont compare forever with others.....the person who is saying toothgel is costly should first use it...will the person compromise with health on the cost basis....... the tooth gel with aloeverra helps the saponin(natures soap in aloeverra)to clean our mouth upto third layer of skin and lignin in aloe helps saponin to do so..... micro granules of toothgel gives a feel of massaging our jaws without hurting the roots......flouride less toothgel a natures miracle a wonder product by forever which is helping million peoples maintain smile forever....hats off to forever living for mastering in combos.....toothgel is also having bee propolis which helps to give relief in various oral ailments including gingivitis and pyria..bleeding gums.So before criticising one should judge the ingredients of aloe toothgel....
be forever free use forever toothgel...cost is very low if you take it for your health/wellness/smile.....propolis makes the difference...

Shyam Sundar said...

Amway apologists also say the same thing. They are all crooks. All these qualities you claim are cooked up to lure the gullible to buy the products and rope in their friends and relatives.
You don't even have a real name what type of supporter you are!

Shyam Sundar said...

On and off we have court jesters like Tex to provide entertainment.

OORRJAA said...

before telling others crook why dont people come forward and use the products atleast four months will see the difference and i am confident the statements will change for forever ........Istamal karein fir vishwas karein...no restriction .....Pure Networking is different .... In Traditional Market Most of the profit reaches the Retailer to manufacturer chain the least beneficiary is customer .....but in network marketing the savings comes from this network of traditional market and genuine company forwards the benefits to the customer...I just ask to study before commenting thanks in advance as biased peoples cannot think stable..they see fishy in every activity..the moment people hears about networking that means it is fraud ...please broaden your minds and try to learn the things...for more details you can mail me abindiaview@gmail.com

I am unsure what you mean from this post.
One must buy into the company buy buying the products and using them, thus collecting points.The target amounts of points avails you to various stages of purchasing power. This is NO DIFFERENT from how wholesale food works with smaller and larger supermarkets. If I buy a ton of potatoes from a farmer in my area and sell it at my store, I will have to pay a lot more than the supermarket chain who buy 15 tons. How is this cheating.. unless there is a law that doesn't allow a farmer to sell his potatoes at his own price... OH WAIT.. there IS... WOW... GOVERNMENTS force farmers to sell their produce to huge concerns... policed and governed by government, and for this SERVICE... the farmer is allowed to sell.. my my... if THAT is not a money circulation scheme then Al Capone was a saint.

Aloe Vera is real. It actually grows everywhere and it has been used successfully by many cultures for as long as our history can be traced. How are vaccines comparable to something like this? Vaccine companies have ZERO evidence proving that they even worked in the past! All it is is a lot of lies and fraudulent paperwork, which has been exposed now anyway, in the last 5 years.

Forever living products work because they are well formulated. THey are popular and people want to use them. THe business model is not super easy, and there are no promises that making the money is easy. HOWEVER... you get more support and training and encouragement from your team to succeed and achieve than you would from any dead beat job that hardly pays the bills!
I am joining Forever living this month. I took 3 months to research this and I have found that Forever living, Amway, herbalife, Annique, Aim and a few others are all equally good companies who each have some INCREDIBLE products in their ranges. I plan to join as many of these as I can possibly manage without burning out. I love to sell truly helpful products to people who have tried the vaccines and the drs and all the clinics and beauticians and all the folk remedies and have come back from the brink of modern substance abuse enforced on them by the medical fraternity.....

There are hordes and hordes of very very effective products on the market, but very few of them can be found in your supermarkets or superstores... because they are BETTer and the producers refuse to buy into the fraudulent system that our governments call 'rational' money making.... If we were to start basic trading again, you and your kind would call for heads to roll... because basically, you don't stand to make any money from it unless you join in the trading ethic... I give you something in return for an appropriate item of similar VALUE.... and herein lies the big issue.

Fluoride is a POISON... I cannot BELIEVe you actually chose this one product to diss FLP.. that was dense. It is general knowledge, and it is and has been repeatedly proven for the last 50 years that Fluoride is killing the people, and that governments use it for devious reasons, as well as because they don't know how to get rid of it safely... the human body can take a lot of abuse and punishment... you should know this being from INDIA. Fluoride is rendered inactive in the human body because it is so very toxic that the body protects its own elimination organs by NOT eliminating it!!! It stores the toxin in various parts of the body to hide it away. over time, it kills you. Fluoride free toothpaste is around R45 a tube IF you are lucky enough to find it, and it basically is made up of the same stuff they use to make shampoo and soap... Sodium Laureth Sulphate... which by the way is also very very very very very very bad for you! Forever toothpaste is very concentrate, it is made of ingredients that ALL benefit the teeth, the enamel and in the long term does a lot of repair work. Soap, commercial toothpaste and shampoos cannot do this. All they do is wash off some of the top layer, good and bad - indiscriminately! The FLP toothpaste can be used as a mouthwash, a mouth disinfectant, a regular toothpaste as well as a medicated salve for injuries on the delicate inner mucosa of the gums and inner cheeks. It is NOT dangerous to swallow, so in fact, you can even use it on your dogs and horses. It has been PROVEN to fight halitosis, which is normally a long term treatment with antibiotics that cost 10 times more, take 10 times longer, and the healing doesn't last anyway, and then you sit with all the horrible side effects. Why on earth would you not rather pay around R100 for a tube of toothpaste that will last one person around 2 months... oh my, WAIT... if you factor THAT in, then this wonderful product is now actually CHEAPER than all the fancy Colgate's and Aquafresh and anti tobacco toothpastes that contain amounts of fluoride that they do not even disclose, other than the warning on the tube to not let kids under 12 brush their teeth unsupervised... Do you even realise what you are saying? anything that requires adult supervision and is considered toxic to the environment and the human body should NOT be given a platform to compare to products like the FLP toothpaste. You have clearly been taking all your fluoride supplements in order to use the cognitive process employed in your little piece of uneducated and poorly researched article.

Becky Lieb said...

I can't even...

You people who read this rubbish and follow the advice without doing your own thinking deserve to peg from Fluoride poisoning. in a way it will get rid of the genes that make our society so pathetically weak minded and gullible....
And to those who used ONE of these great product "once" ... and claimed it did not work - you are just as stupid! its like saying you ate eggs once and you're still hungry now, so eating doesn't actually work. lol

bye! and good riddance.

I'll be here for some time making money in an ethical way by selling really good value for money products to those who actually care about their health.

If you ACTUALLY read this and compare it to what is really a big farce... you will see your own trusted medical fraternity, because they use fancy words like "live" and 'healing' and 'cure' and catch people out by endorsements from so called authorities in society, by paying them HUGE bribes (see the vaccine industry) and then subject people to barbaric and torturous interventions that are so traumatic that they are actually convinced it was a good thing to have survived. Its just insane.

This menace committed against the society is going unchecked.
The promoters of the scheme very well knew that it is certain that the scheme was impracticable and unworkable making tall promises which the makers of the promises knew fully well that it could not work successfully =- see again, things like vaccines and chemo and other medical interventions that are more harmful than anything else.. like fluoride too. in fact, just cast your memory to about 60 years ago... I can remember when drs and governments were telling people that smoking CURES CANCER and that it is good for your lungs... they knew that it did the exact opposite way before they even formulated those adverts and campaigns against humanity... and you would choose to believe them even now!? seriously?

I am not talking about the products here. That is another issue. By consuming such products ailments cannot be cured and they should take permission from the Drug administration to sell such products.
But they are selling in the direct selling model, which is nothing but illegal money circulation scheme under the provisions of the Prize Chits and Money Circulation Schemes (Banning) Act,1978. You buy products and recruit members under you to buy the products and you make money by the purchase of the members recruited by you. This is illegal.
