One of the interesting things that Amway IBOS like to claim us how Amway partners with big name companies like Disney or Nike. But that’s like saying 7-11 is partnered with CocaCola because 7-11 sells their product. It’s the same as Amway IBOS. They might have Nike or Disney products in their catalogs but calling it a partnership is a stretch. It’s not like you can buy Amway stuff at Disneyland or Nike town. That would be a partnership wheee each company sells each other’s products.
Instead, Amway IBOS get to hawk products for these “partner” stores but strictly on a commission only basis. It’s a great deal to have Amway IBOS sell your stuff for commission only and no fringe benefits. The “partner” store has nothing to lose. It’s like having access to a fleet of free sales people who only get paid a little if they sell product but receive nothing unless volume is actually moved.
What Amway folks don’t like to talk about is how Enron and MCI Worldcim were also Amway partners at one time. IMO, a scam partnering with a scam. LOL. So basically the partner program for Amway IBOS is like unrequited love. In other words it’s all one sided.
In the end, the partner concept might in name bring some credibility to the IBOS story when prospecting new recruits but in the end, you still need to deal with the Amway name and reputation. Selling a few Nike or Disney products in the Amway catalogs doesn’t make Amway a better business opportunity nor does it tend to make IBOS any more profitable, nor does it make an IBO more likely to succeed. The partner store concept is just a nice talking point and nothing more. LOL. 😃
