Most IBOs involved in Amway belong to some kind of line of sponsorship, which has a system. These systems consists of groups such as Worldwide Dreambuilders (WWDB), BWW, Network 21, INA, LTD, etc. The system usually consists of tapes or cds, voicemail, books, websites, and functions or seminars. The system typically costs on the lower end, $100 a month on average, and for very dedicated IBOs, up to $500 a month or more, depending on what the IBOs are taught. But does the system work?
Based on observation, and information revealed by Amway, I can conclude that the system does not work. After discarding IBOs who do nothing, the average income of the remaining IBOs is a paltry $115 a month. Furthermore, if the system worked, then then would be a consisten progression of people moving from 1000, to 2500, t0 4000, to platinum and higher. While new and inspired IBOs can rise rapidly to the silver or platinum level with excitement, they will often fall apart and end up quitting, which is why you probably do not see very many new diamonds. Also, it appears that Amway growth is primarily from foreign markets and not the US. In the US, the Amway name appears to be saturated and finding new recruits is very difficult. Some tools zealots (i.e."Tex") claim the system works but the prices are too high. Well, Tex is dead wrong. If the system worked as advertised, then the price of the system would be seen as reasonable by most.
Tex will also claim that the system will work if only the prices were lowered. Well, again, Tex is dead wrong because the price of the system doesn't have any causal relationship with the effectiveness of the tools. The only difference is that the uplines who produce the tools, would have little or no incentive to produce tools if they need to take the financial risk for small or no profits. Because we know that many Amway businesses fall apart, even at the diamond level and higher, maintaining your income and lifestyle can become difficult and diamonds and higher may not be motivated to take time away from their Amway businesses to produce tools if there is little or no profit in them.
I will contend that the system does not work. I challenge anyone to prove this wrong with facts, preferably unbiased facts. *crickets chirping*
