Forever Living: A Scam Or Not

There has been a lot of talk, both positive and negative, about joining  Forever Living as a way to make money. It is best to set things straight. The  way to do this is to review the background of the business, and then the pros  and cons of what the company is offering. From this, you can decide for yourself  if the “forever living scam” talk holds water.

About Forever Living

Forever Living, also known as Forever Living Products  (, is a 30 year old multi-billion dollar company. It has  networks in over 145 countries. The company manufactures wellness products that  capitalize on the health benefits of the aloe vera plant. It shares the benefits  of its products all over the world through the multi-level-marketing system.  Over 9.5 million distributors across the globe have joined up with Forever  Living.

The Pros

First, the distributor gets free sales training as part of their  distributorship. This is a way to improve one’s networking and social skills. It  is a plus when you want not just professional but personal development.

Second, there is access to sell imported natural-based products, most of  which are aloe vera-based items, with marketing support from a well-established  company. It becomes easier to sell when there is company backup and brand recall  for the products.

Third, further earnings come from helping other people succeed. The  multi-level aspect means you earn not just on your sales, but on the sales of  others you introduce to the business so your earning potential is greater.

But unless the claims are hyped, the pro side of FLP isn’t going to make  people think it is a scam, so let’s examine the other side.

The Cons

Firstly, the products can be more expensive than similar herbal products sold  in the market. The value is based on the quality and efficacy, not discount  pricing.

Second, it takes time to build a successful network because most people won’t  want to do this as a business. It also takes time to train people and you need  to develop leadership skills to retain their commitment to the group.

Third, there is no fee for being a distributor, but you need to pay £199 for  the products in their ‘business pack’ but this gives you over £320 of stock and allws you to give half for customers to try and half for you to try. The Forever Living scam tag probably comes  from the fact that this investment has to be made.

The Verdict?

The Forever Living scam idea is a myth. Sure what  it offers isn’t for everyone, and neither is the business model, but that isn’t  the way to know if it is a scam or not.

It is true that there are no guarantees of a return on your investment, but  then again even with other start-up businesses, there is no assurance of success  either. You are doing the advertising, marketing, and selling on behalf of the  company so it is important to understand the value in the products, and how to  get others to experience that value too.

You will need to begin with people you already know so you can practice  safely, but to grow a big business with a steady, residual and growing income  you will also need to expand your networks and connect with others who may be  interested in your business too. Make sure you plan for your marketing to do  this.

    If you are anything like me when first starting out you started researching how to market your business online. You probably ran across quite a few “gurus” who intrigued you by their ability to turn customers into cash on automation.

    But…you just couldn’t quite figure out how to make it happen.

    I am here to tell you, bottom line, it comes down to leads. You have to have leads if you want to have a business online. No leads = No money. There’s no way around it. You MUST have leads. So, how the heck are you going to get those leads?

    Maybe you already know you need leads or you are just discovering you need leads either way you probably have been on a hunt to figure out how to generate leads online.

    You will inevitably run across several marketing systems and quite possibly a system called MLSP / My Lead System Pro.

    The purpose of this post is to help you decide…. Is MLSP Right For You?

    What you might discover upon researching MLSP /My Lead System Pro, is this could very well be your missing link that you have been searching months for.

    So, is it the missing link?

    MLSP / My Lead System Pro is what we call in the industry an attraction marketing system.

    The definition: the use of marketing techniques specifically designed to teach the customer what you are doing and how a service or product will benefit them well before they purchase it.

    Bottom line you are leading with “you” the product. You are the person people will become attracted to by the value you give online and in return people will view you as a leader and want to join your business.

    MLSP’s founder Brian Fanale, Norbert Orlewitz, and Todd Schlomer created the system for network marketers who can use the tools inside MLSP to attract struggling network marketers. The system is based off of the teachings of attraction marketing who was originally taught by the great Mike Dillard.

    The tools provided inside of MLSP / My Lead System Pro help position you as a leader within the industry. As a result you are the product people want more of. You are the VALUE MLSP offers with their tools on the front end and on the back end you promote your business opportunity.

    Remember when asking is MLSP right for you, people don’t like to be sold, they only buy stuff they feel they NEED.

    Keeping all this in mind Brian, Norbert and Todd have also created valuable training within their system. They have also set up over 25 additional affiliate income streams that their users can also profit from. A lot of these products are “free” offerings that you can promote and on the back end you have the opportunity to make additional income.

    Even if you are a total newbie and still wondering, is MLSP right for you, the system allows you to do two very important things:
    ■Position yourself as a leader within the industry
    ■You also have the opportunity to create income even if people don’t join your primary business, therefore, it’s a win / win for you. Not everyone will want to join your primary so why not still make money from them by offering the tools from MLSP / My Lead System Pro

    The system is simple to follow and is generic for any network marketer with any business.

    Now that you understand the fundamentals of MLSP you probably want to know what’s inside?
