Legit Direct Selling Companies, Ponzi’s, Pyramids And Our Opinion

Legit Direct Selling Companies

 

We at Business For Home get almost daily the question "Is company XYZ legit or a Ponzi – Pyramid scheme?"

Hard to answer as it takes in-depth knowledge of a compensation plan, the owners, product/service and the country a company is registered, and there are over 10,000 Direct Selling companies worldwide….

What is not compliant in the USA, can be no problem in other countries.

Bill Ackman thinks Herbalife is a Pyramid, we do not think so. The Federal Trade Commission in the USA had the opinion Vemma is a pyramid, we do not think so (and the FTC has settled this case).

However our opinion is not important, YOU have to do your own research.

The USA is not longer the Direct Selling Center of the universe, Asia is, and rules are there less strict as in Europe and South America.

Intentionally or unintentionally the border can be crossed and even compensation plan experts can be sometimes wrong. We at Business For Home are hardcore Direct Selling Industry activits, not Ponzi – Pyramid experts, we report facts and figures.

If we report about a company or publish an article about Top earner XYZ, who makes $50,000+ per month, it is NOT an endorsement, we just validate those numbers. You can be pretty sure those articles are accurate.

In the past we have reported about Zeek Rewards, Banner Brokers as TelexFree, proven Ponzi systems.

Direct Selling is the marketing and selling of products directly to consumers away from a fixed retail location, and a $250+ Billion worldwide market with more than 100 million people involved, and we love that. πŸ™‚

Do not kill the messenger…
