Business For Home Herbalife Summary

We have hardly seen any Herbalife leader at generic network marketing events around the world while this is a crucial part of recognising, and promoting a company. Herbalife network marketing leaders are almost invisible on social media. Looks like leaders are hiding?

Herbalife’s performance in 2022 resulted in a 10% decrease in revenue compared to the previous year. There payout of est. 28% is poor compared with the industry average (35%).

Their Business for Home Momentum Rank is 50 out of approximately 900 worldwide network marketing companies in our database, which is an underperforming rank for a billion dollar company.

Currently for a network marketing leader joining Herbalife is a “Tough Deal.” Duplication is poor. Social media performance is poor. Revenue is declining. Compensation plan payout is poor.

All-though several reviewers like the products, overall it looks like Herbalife is not any more a recruitment driving organisation. That might be a management strategy (lets focus on the products) however for prospects seeking a promising growing company, there are far more better alternatives nowadays. Therefore we second Seeking Alpha’s conclusion.
