    • In that case Freno give me the mobile numbers of 3 of them. I’d like to hear from them before I add it to the list.

  1. There are two more Network Marketing companies you can add to this list now.
    1. Polaris Global (Personal Development ecourse)
    2. FamilyIQ (Parenting & Family Skills Programme)

          • yes i fully agree with you chris that the majority of things you find on the internet are scams and they like to target women, mothers and poor people and sadly alot of people get sucked in and end up losing money

  2. Hi Sheldon,

    This is a great idea for a site – Thank you for providing the service – I will make sure I check out your sponsored ads before I leave.

    I have a question – I am looking to get into a Home Based Business, I am not into the supplement thing so have narrowed it down to 3:

    1. ACN Pacific PTY
    2. Pro-Ma Systems
    3. Home Care Direct

    My goal with this is to plug in to a successful system and build a business. I am keen to work with people and am a big fan of the rags to riches tale. My purpose is to build a vehicle I can use to help guide myself first, and then others out of the rat race and into a lifestyle of choice.

    With that goal in mind, can I ask, out of the 3 – which one would you go for and why?

    Kindest Regards


    • Hi Matt
      I saw your post here and thought I would add my two cents worth.

      Firstly, it seems that the three companies you have narrowed down to are quite different. I have previously looked at ACN and while I think it is probably quite good, there is a lot of competition in this market.

      The other two companies look okay too, but I do not know much about them except the Home Care Direct prices seem a little high when compared to the retail battles now happening.

      When I looked at my options I went with Melaleuca which they claim is not a multi-level marketing business, but it is very very similar. They call it a consumer direct business as my customers buy online directly from Melaleuca – less administration for me that way.

      The reasons I had for selecting this as a business was (1) they have consumable products which my network re-order each month, (2) the products are generally better quality and (3) the prices are competitive. These all mean that my customers keep ordering so I do not have to keep enrolling new customers and my cheques keep getting bigger.

      It would be worth considering – you can read a little on my website too;
      You can email me if you wish;
      Hope this has been some help…

      • Hi Guys,

        So far my decision has been pretty much made up for me. Only Pro-Ma got back to me so at present, I am just doing my research around this company. (Thank you for sharing your opportunity Stuart, I will be sure to check out your website)

        The Pro-Ma opportunity looks good – there are pro’s and con’s most definitely:

        I like the look of the system, the back office looks pretty good and the structure is reasonable. I am getting involved in this business to build a system that generates money for me while I sleep. I am not interested in creating a system that I must work at 24-7.

        Pro-Ma looks to offer me that opportunity to build a genuine product based business that still rewards me for developing others that want to join in the opportunity.

        The other thing that works is my partner is a hair dresser, so the skin care cosmetics will compliment her salon business nicely.

        My concerns are that the company have been around for a long time and the network in NZ seems incredibly small. I get the impression that people are buying personal consumption only and not selling much retail.

        I know of 1 person who speaks highly of Grace Cosmetics and the Pro-Ma system – nobody else I have asked has ever heard of them. There are no meetings, certainly in Auckland and I’m not sure if this is a good or a bad thing.

        Keen to hear peoples thoughts – I have bought some sample packs to give out over christmas to get some product feedback – I’m thinking if the feedback is good I might buy a starter pack and give it a go early in the new year.

        Looking forward to your comments

        Matt 🙂

  3. I was suggested network marketing by a life coach and thought tupperware would be perfect as It was no cash outlay, still people should be warned that it ended up costing me in the long run, with petrol, catelouges, ppl not following through on orders, etc etc,
    I am a solo-mother and It put me off network marketing. I had been promised $100 tupperware for recruiting members, I recruited 2, received the first $100 but not the second, I quit as I couldn’t wait around just to collect the free gift etc as It was too stressful with study and work etc, I am now charged for the first? only works out less than what I owe on the kit but still, I am annoyed I am not entitled to the other 100 for recruiting the second, was also promised travel money to auckland for recruiting and only receieved $10 pathetic. I want others warned of such promises.

    • Hi Angle,
      Yes I know how you feel, I was with Tupperware too. They don’t follow through or help you out at all, I gave that up as was spending a lot of money..Now how ever I am with Under Cover Wear, paper work is sent out every 10 parties you do only pay for catalogs, which is a set price every 10 parties, you are not forced to put money into it unless you want to, the money is good too. If you are interested get in touch and let me know. I love it.

  4. I joined ACN in the states and found it as very high pressure to get your friends to come to a meeting and not telling them the company name or giving them any details. The cost to join is $499 US plus back office fees and you are encouraged to sign yourself up for 3 services like: mobile phone, home energy and home alarm services, etc. Luckily I saw through the staged high energy meetings and cancelled the membership and had lots of difficulty cancelling the energy service even though I was within my 3 day right of recission period. I would recommend to run away from this MLM as fast as you can – it strained some long-time friendships for me

  5. Hi I want to know what you think of the
    From Gisborne, New Zealand. It is new and growing and a frequently asked question is , “Is this a scam” , I would love to hear your opinion, thanks.

    • Hi Terry – I have one of the largest teams in ShopNEarn. On our team website I have uploaded the legal opinion of specialist commercial lawyers. Here is the link I draw your attention to the last paragraph ‘…it is our opinion that the Shop N Earn Club is a legitimate business model.’ I hope that helps.

      • Just an update. The owners decided to close the ShopnEarn Club programme in favour of merging with the new loyalty card programme launched earlier this year. Beepxtra is going viral in 190 countries and FREE to join.

  6. Hi I am an affiliate member with Empower Network. We sell pre-made blogging platforms for people wanting to make money online and as an affiliate we make money selling the marketing programmes. Our basic membership is US$25 a month and to be an affiliate member you pay $19.95 a month so that you can get paid 100% commissions on what you sell. I used to work as a Midwife in NZ and now do this from home instead, I can give you plenty of numbers of people in NZ making money with this.

  7. There’s a new MLM available to NZ from the states, it started growing in Levin Late March 2013, I’m 1st in Palmerston North to spread the word. It’s Javita weight loss coffee and Javita mind and energy coffee. 100% natural and herbal. there’s picture’s on my javita with Rosina Facebook page, would love to find a leader in NZ to help train us and to get this amazing product out, we need more drinker’s so we can get a centre build in NZ or Aussie.

  8. Hi, could you please look at and add it to your list? We’re currently launching globally and started in OZ and NZ Oct 2013. We network market more or less everything – not one particular brand – we have teamed up with massive companies such as Groupon and Amazon and Visa are in the process of giving us our vinnco Visa cards. One of the only companies to start up completely debt free and audited every quarter by none other than KPMG. Looking for people to get in on a massive opportunity for internet shopping. Thanks.

  9. Perhaps you could add Forever Living Products and there is a new one, Q Sciences, with just a few distributors in NZ, but It looks like it is going to do well, as it is in US and Canada. Thanks for your consideration, This is a great resource, thanks!

  10. This is a new offshoot of a well established (25 years old) Kiwi company. I would be grateful if you would list Club Prenzel as a network marketing company, probably the only distillery network marketing company in the world! We make award winning gin, vodka, schnapps and a large variety of gourmet food products, all from our distillery in Marlborough.

  11. Hello,

    could you please add Qnet in your MLM businesses list.
    This is a ompany with vision and touching many people’s life across the globe.
