It caught on quick; They are at the Top of Repeat sales and have reached 1 Billion Dollars (8 billion in sales in 2008) and the second fasted company to reach that level online (Dell- 3years, Amway Global/Quixtar 4 years).

There are plenty things you can get from the site from Tooth Paste to Trash bags. IBO(Independent Business Owners) use and market Amaway Global shopping mall and receive a percentage of the profits.
The Goal as an IBO is to get to the Crown Level. Not too many people have gotten there but that is due to lack of duplication and marketing training. In this industry we are taught to use warm market and continue to create a warm market. The problem with that is that not everyone has a type “A” personality. Not everyone has the ability to approach strangers. So what happens when they run out of warm market. They Quit. People need to learn how to market several ways to be able to succeed in this industry and help others do the same.
Leveraging the internet is one of the best ways to do so. It is not easy to learn how to use the internet but once a marketer understands those principles, they are well on their way. There are many who have learned to use the internet to leverage their income and reach the top earner status in their companies. The have also been able to monetize leads that do not join their primary business. Check the Author Resource box for links to where you can get that type of training.
