In this article we ask – what ARE the Amway Quixtar Secrets? What’s the verdict – scam or legit?


Business Model


In some circles, Amway was nicknamed “Grandfather of Network Marketing / Multi-Level Marketing” (MLM). The reason for this is simple. After many debates and courtroom battle scars; Amway has gone up to bat to prove that MLM is not a pyramid scheme. The nature of Amway Quixtar is MLM and direct selling. And the main difference in Quixtar compared to Amway is that, when the distributors buy Quixtar products, they order directly online rather than from the person who recruited them. The representatives are called Independent Business Owners (IBOs) and can earn several forms of commission based on personal volume of products sold, products sold by their recruits and various leadership bonuses.


History


Two Dutch guys (friends since school, buddies in the military and previous business partners in a sailing business and burgers) Richard DeVos and Jay Van Andel were introduced to the Nutrilite Products Corporation in 1949. This California-based company developed the first multivitamin to be marketed in the U.S. By 1958, Van Andel and DeVos had recruited over 5000 distributors. Due to some concerns about the stability of Nutrilite, these two Dutchmen and their best distributors formed The American Way Association and pursued additional products to market. Their very first product was a liquid organic cleaner called Frisk, later to be renamed Liquid Organic Concentrate or LOC – one of their flagship products to date.


Amway Services Corporation (Amway is an abbreviation for “American Way”) purchased a 50% share in Atco Manufacturing Company (the manufacturer of LOC) and changed its name to Amway Manufacturing Corporation. In 1964 the Amway Sales Corporation, Amway Services Corporation, and Amway Manufacturing Corporation merged to form Amway Corporation. In 1972, Amway bought control of Nutrilite and then full ownership in 1994. The expansion of Amway’s borders proceeded as follows: Australia in 1971, Europe in 1973, parts of Asia in 1974, Japan in 1979, Latin America in 1985, China in 1995, Africa in 1997, India and Scandinavia in 1998, Russia in 2005 and Vietnam in 2008. In 1999 the founders of the Amway established a new holding company, named Alticor, and launched Quixtar which was one of three sister companies.


Quixtar reported, in 2006, that the average gross income per month for IBOs was $115. With seminars and rallies to motivate and encourage the IBOs, there is reported a faithful following in spite of minimal compensation and very part-time.


Products


On the Amway.com site, you’ll find these main categories of products: nutrition, beauty, bath & body, home and other products which include gifts, B2B products, food and beverage – to name a few. In some countries, the brand names may be different from Nutrilite, Artistry, Satinique and eSpring in the U.S. The Ditto Delivery button you see on the website is for the purpose of having a shipment of products automatically sent to your doorstep every single month – convenience or hassle? YOU be the judge of that.


Conclusion


Yes, it’s clear that Amway has stood the test of time and some people have made money there. The cleaning products are concentrated and therefore last the customer a long time. Also, my hat goes off to Amway for paving the way, in some respects, long ago when there was less understanding about network marketing.
