WWDB Update From The Amway Blog

WWDB Update From The Amway Blog

MLM Blog’s sister site Amway Blog has been keeping up to date with the goings on at WWDB (World Wide Dream Builders), an Amway training system.  I have been keeping that stuff out of the MLM Blog because most people really won’t understand much of it unless you participated in Amway at some time.

I got my Network Marketing start in WWDB.  I learned a lot and paid a lot for what I learned.  I grew fast in the beginning and then worked hard spinning my wheels for years.

18 months after leaving WWDB with the help and mentorship of Bo Short, I was earning a six-figure income from home. While WWDB has stagnated with roughly the same number of Diamonds today that they had in the 90′s, Bo and I have helped over 40 people earn BMW’s and just in the last 2 months we have the equivalent of one new Diamond and a half dozen new Emeralds in our business, that is just under 2 years old but debt free and backed by investors worth hundreds of millions.

Anyways, here are some links to recent updates about WWDB if you are interested:

Brad Duncan talks about his brother (Greg Duncan’s) recent bankruptcy, mentioning that this is the 3rd time he has lost everything.

EDC Dean Kosage Leaves WWDB to start his own line of affiliation, called “Freestyle”.

Double Diamond Brad Wolgamott Leaves WWDB and starts his own line of affiliation called VSix.

Older news:

Greg Duncan Bankruptcy, Diamond Jim Harstad leaves, David Shores Foreclosure, River House for sale, etc.

Amway Sales Grow In 2009 But No Mention Of U.S. Sales Growth

Amway Sales Grow In 2009 But No Mention Of U.S. Sales Growth

If Amway doesn’t mention U.S. numbers, you can be pretty sure that they are down.  Amway training systems like WWDB have shown declining numbers in meeting attendance and new diamonds….here is the press release from Amway:

ADA, Mich., March 9 /PRNewswire/ — Amway’s parent company, Alticor Inc., announced record sales of more than US$8.4 billion for the year ended Dec. 31, 2009, which was a 2.3 percent increase over 2008. Sales were negatively impacted by foreign currency fluctuations, which in local currency grew 5.9 percent.

"Our focus on using innovation to transform the Amway business is showing results," said chairman Steve Van Andel. "The global economy challenged every business in 2009. Our continuing investment in products, technology, and connecting with consumers helped us weather the storm."

Said president Doug DeVos: "Our distributors around the world deserve a lot of credit for persistence in a difficult economic climate. We put a lot of effort into improving our product offerings and building consumer awareness; the distributors put in the work to drive sales to our customers."

The company also made gains in another key measure. Said Van Andel: "In 2009, we increased our market share in the direct selling industry, and continued to drive improvements and adjustments to our business that will help us, and our distributors, succeed over the long term."

I recently saw some interesting numbers about a handful of Network Marketing compensation plans. The comparison took a business built in the suggested method with 5,000 points of volume. You will see that most companies do not pay very well on the front end (if at all). Feel free to do your own research evaluating the compensation plans listed here.

Efusjon  

Approximate Wholesale Cost of Product: $5,000

Personal Order: $120

Bonus: $71.30*
Percentage Paid: 1.2%

Bonus: $196.61*
Percentage Paid: 2.6%

MLM Expert, Len Clements On The Amway Global Compensation Plan

By Ty Tribble, MLM Blog Founder

I was listening to a recent podcast from MLM Expert, Len Clements and he said something about the Amway compensation plan that I found very interesting.  Mr. Clements is a court certified expert in MLM/Network Marketing and founder of Market Wave Inc,  in case you were wondering about his credentials.

So here is a quote from Mr. Clements about the Amway Compensation Plan:

"The Amway Compensation Plan is one of the worst plans in the industry."

Hmmm.  That sounds really familiar.  Oh yeah, that's what I have been saying about the Amway/Quixtar plan for years.  Here is a link to the podcast where Len makes the statement.  The podcast is one hour and forty minutes long and the quote is near the end .

Back to Amway Global…

Amway is an $8 Billion company, but my guess is that only 10% (roughly $800 Million) of that volume comes from the U.S., down from an estimated $2 to $3 Billion in the 90's.

Is Amway Global a good business opportunity in the U.S.?

Let's answer that with a couple of questions…

1. Can you name a Network Marketing company that has a worse reputation than Amway/Quixtar?

2. Can you name a company that has a worse dollar to volume ratio than Amway/Quixtar? In other words, how much does it cost you to do your 100 points?

Amway Global has a Stairstep Breakaway Plan (not a Unilevel Plan like some folks at MonaVie claim).  The Stairstep Breakaway plan is typically considered as a plan that is disproportionately weighted towards the back end.  In general, top earners typically (not always) do fairly well and the mid to low ranks suffer.

Amway WWDB Triple Diamond Greg Duncan Bankrupt!

Amway WWDB Triple Diamond Greg Duncan Bankrupt!

My former upline in Amway/Quixtar is bankrupt….

Amquix.info:

GDUNCAN_lg
World Wide Dreambuilder's Triple Diamond and former IBOAI board of director Greg and Laurie Duncan have been in bankruptcy court  since Sep. 11 2007!  A site visitor notified me of the bankruptcy after checking up on their numerous houses that were in foreclosure last year. 

The Duncan's listed assets of $63 million and debts of $8.4 million.  Despite having millions in net worth, the Duncan's cannot service all their debts.

The Duncan's owed $1.7 million to the  IRS for back taxes and penalties and $452,000 to the State of Montana for back taxes.

In April of 2008, the Duncan's filed a reorganization plan and  disclosure statement under court sealing that was later unsealed when it went into Chapter 7. 

Supposedly $9 million of Duncan's cash got drained away in a lawsuit over the rights to sell he XS energy drink.   I obtained documentation of a suit involving the XS energy drink brand with a company called Cetalon.   Cetalon claimed it was given marketing rights for the XS brand and was suing for its piece of the pie after Quixtar became a major buying.   Greg Duncan was named as a defendant, and  Cetalon went bankrupt when it lost the case.

All the bankruptcy documents are public record on Pacer.
