Which brings me back to my first point - if the products really are THAT great, why does rarely anyone use them? I mean, when I speak to people about amway, they have either never heard of it or they immediately get freaked out. I don't know anyone, save for my Step-mother, who uses them continually. I think most people who continually use amway products are people like her, trying to make their passive residual income through amway.

which ever way you look at it its selling of a product, some people are good at that, some people are not and come across as pushie creeps. Amyway products are all environmentally friendly and their packaging has been biodegradable ever since I can remember. They are a high quality product and that always comes with a premium. As i have said in a previous thread, my mother sells Amway, she has done since the early nineties, she sells to friends and family for the price she pays for it as she believes in the product, and she doesnt have to make any money coz she's rich anyway. I use their washing powder and a box of that which costs around $80 will last my family of 2 for over a year. I live rurally so I have to consider what I use in my washing machine goes into my land, I have yet to find a product that compares to the SA8 in regards to this. I look at all these mothers at the supermarket with their massive boxes of Omo in their trolleys every week and think 'if only you knew'. Unless you have tried the Amway products for yourself then I dont think you are in any position to judge. Oh and their disinfectant is the only chemical that goes into my toilet system.

I use amway but I dont walk around with a badge on my shirt telling everyone about it! DO you ask everyone you know what sort of cleaning products they use? Weird

I think ppl just don't like feeling 'recruited' and it puts them on the back foot to begin with regardless of waht the product it. The products isn't GOOD ENOUGH for ppl to sign up to the whole system. Why should I have to pay $65 to join the pipeline in order ot purchase the products that I hear is pretty good. Plus it is sooooooooo expensive!!!

I think Amway has failed/scared ppl and would do much better if it was branded along the lines of Tupperware/Enjo.

No, but I do discuss the products in general with people in conversation (mostly with other Mum's). Amway has negatively impacted my life on a personal level, hence my opinion. I have delved to find that this has happened to a lot of other people as well (which is also evident just from reading this thread). I find the whole thing bizarre, and consequently, very interesting.

You have 2 options
-pay for the privledge to purchase
-get someone who is a member to purchase it for you (but this person you may have already Amway contact with in the past and it was probably negative).
I think Enjo/Tupperware succeed in because they overcome those two problems listed above
-you don't pay to join
-the relationship with the person who you can purcahse from is probably better because they haven't ever tried to sign you up - they may have had a party, given you the opportunity to buy but they have never asked you to hand over cash for memberships or made promises of incidential income etc.
They are straight up
-companies make money by selling a product
-the seller hasn't paid membership fee
-the buyer doesn't have to join and is simply purchasing an item (for which the seller earns a bit of money/gets products)
-the products are great
