It’s no secret that the vast majority of IBOs wind up with a net business loss and eventually quit the business because they see no chance of turning a profit. But a valid question might be why so many IBOs fail? The answer is quite simple. There are too many handicaps and problems with the Amway business for people to overcome. While many Amway IBOs might be motivated and eager, they simply cannot overcome the staggering odds.
First off the Amway business has a poor reputation. Many people are turned off simply by the name. It makes it next to impossible to recruit and entice potential recruits. And you can’t build an Amway empire without down line. That is the focus of most starry eyed Amway recruits, to sponsor as many down line as possible. Sadly, most IBOs will never sponsor a single downline.
Another aspect is that the upline diamond makes their living off down line. Any help received from the diamond has a cost to the down line. Standing orders, functions, meetings, books, voice nail. This system extracts cash from IBOS monthly which is most often the reason why IBOS suffer net losses in the business. The system is also inefficient which is evident by the massive amounts of failure seen in Amway.
But another big reason is that Amway products are basically generic like a plain whits can with the label of “pepper” on it. But the Amway products come at premium prices as if they are designer types of products. This alone is a massive handicap. Imagine trying to sell a Ford Escort for the sane price as a Mercedes Benz? I suppose it’s possible but it explains the general idea that IBOs appear to consume their own products instead of selling them to actual customers.
For these reasons and many more that I haven’t touched on yet, Amway IBOS are doomed to failure. It’s no surprise and quite predictable. It would be more surprising to see IBOS actually succeeding. LOL
