In this article, I will share with you what I think are some of the best MLM companies to join, and I will name 5 to get you started.
MLM is short for multi-level marketing which is also known as network marketing.
According to Business For Home which is one of the largest direct sales and MLM news websites online, there are thousands, maybe more than 10,000 MLM companies in the world.
They rank the Top 500 in annual sales here.
Most direct sales companies use the network marketing business model. This means you earn money on personal product sales and on the volume of your group based on the comp plan for that MLM company.
So, here is the question. What are the best multi-level marketing companies to join?
To answer this question we have to look at the total picture and think about everything from the age of the company, annual sales, the products, the ways you make money, and who are the top earners.
Probably the most important aspect is the products. Can you picture yourself using them and telling people about them?
The Federal Trade Commission has put network marketers on notice that you must have real people buying real products. You cannot sell the business opportunity as a stand-alone product.
So What Are The Best Companies One Can Join?
I am going to list the top 5 according to sales volume. This does not mean they are necessarily the best, but it is interesting to note they have all been in business for many years now.
Companies such as this do not survive for the length of time they have without having great products and committed representatives
They are the largest network marketing company in the world with annual sales of $8.8 billion in 2018. They have been in business for almost 60 years.
Amway is a worldwide company so you can build your business anywhere you want that Amway has a presence in. The downside of this company is for years there was a lot of negativity associated with them. Much of that has gone away, but you can still expect some people to bring that up.
Amway has products in various categories including basic commodity items, nutritional products, and personal care including cosmetics. Some of the top MLM earners in the world are in Amway.
Avon had sales of $5.5 Billion in 2018. They have seen a drop in business over the past few years, but they have been in business since 1886.
Although they are listed as an MLM company you think of them more for direct sales and even the Avon lady ringing your doorbell.
Having said this being #2 on a list of 500 MLM companies is nothing to be ashamed of. Their products are mostly in beauty, household, and personal care.
Hard to believe Herbalife was found in 1980 which makes them almost 40 years old. They had sales of $4.9 Billion in 2018. Their products are primarily in the weight loss category.
Herbalife went through a nasty court case with the FTC in which they ended up paying a $200 Million dollar fine. They agreed to change their business model putting the focus on selling products at retail and not on having new distributors buy-in at an expensive level.
4. Natura Cosmetics
Natura Products had sales of $3.5 Billion in 2018. They are a Brazilian company with beauty products, household, and personal care, skincare, solar filters, cosmetics, perfume, and hair care products.
They use a consultant business model as well as operate over 3200 stores worldwide.
5. Nu Skin
At one time the world’s greatest networker was Mark Yarnell who made his name and fortune in Nu Skin. Yarnell has passed away but Nu Skin is still alive and well.
Founded in 1980 Nu Skin sells personal care products and dietary supplements. Their sales volume in 2018 was $2.6 Billion.
Here Is What Is Important To You
I cannot tell you what is the best MLM company for you to join. Here is what I can tell you.
I love the products. Use them personally and be convinced that you are promoting products that are the best in the world.
Today network marketing only works when products are sold at the retail level. For you to do that you have to be in love with the products you represent.
You can use them for personal use and then begin telling people about them. You can also market them online in the form of pre-selling.
You do this by starting a blog and writing your personal experiences. You also create YouTube videos and audio clips about your products.
You may even want to go so far as to set up a Facebook account and a fan page where you brag about your products and encourage people to join your Facebook group.
You also want to be active on LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. If this all seems like a lot of work it really is because what you’re doing is creating your own network marketing business.
You can then top off by recruiting new distributors who will emulate exactly what you’re doing. This is the proper way to build what should be the best MLM company for you to join!

As you know I am partial to affiliate marketing over MLM for a variety of reasons. In 2018 Amazon had revenue of $233 Billion of which it is estimated 40% comes from affiliates according to PRWeb.
BusinessForHome.com says there are 1,400 Direct Selling companies in the USA, many open new markets every year and worldwide an est. 10,000 Direct Selling companies are active with $250+ Billion in sales.
MLM is a multi-billion dollar industry, but one company, Amazon, now has annual sales close to an equal of 10,000 MLM companies. You do the math and think about what is the best industry for you to be in.
