In my attempt to remain objective and unbiased, all I can say to this point about my exposure and experience with Melalueca as a spouse of a marketing representative, is that all appears positive with not only the products and service, but also the service and support Melaleuca Corporate provides to its direct customers and marketing reps. That said, it appears some marketing reps don't sufficiently educate consumers or correctly convey how the membership program works.
As for comparisons to more traditional MLM programs, there appear to be some similarities however, Melalueca representatives do not sell or market products directly. They instead refer Malelueca products to friends and acquaintances based on their own experiences. If they like the products and see the health and savings value benefit along with business opportunity potential, if choosen, a Melalueca representative will assist them with membership sign up.
Bottom line is, it is my opinion when one is properly informed and understands Melalueca product wellness benefits, savings, program methodology, and residual income potential, that membership affiliation presents a great opportunity to improve not only yours and your family health and well being, but also creates a tremendous residual income opportunity.
