A picture's worth a thousand words

When a story is about publicly-traded direct selling companies, you might not expect to see Amway referenced.

But when the story is about publicly-traded direct sellers in Asia, like this week’s Investor.com (Investor’s Business Daily) piece, it’s hard not to mention us as Amway leads the direct selling selling industry in many Asian markets. 

We may not be part of the story because we’re privately-held, but this is a case where a picture’s worth a thousand words.

  1. Very interesting article. I think this is the way the United States used to be in the 60s, 70s, and even into the 80s. I remember in 1980, Amway’s growth was so incredible, they had to publish 14 issues of the Amagram Magazine because of so many new qualifiers.

    Since I am focusing on building a retail-based business, I am always listening to people in conversation to see if any of our products can fulfill a need or want. It is amazing how open people are when I tell them I “might” have something that can fill a certain need. I usually give them a sample or set up a time to do a quick demo of a product, and a lot of the time, I get a sale. Many times people are glad to find out the product is from Amway because they know it will be high quality. And now, with the ability for customers to place orders on the web, the fear of losing their servicing IBO is no longer a problem.
