Default Online Business Systems/Herbalife

I know some have succeded and are doing great. But please note, after the first 9.95 then it is 39.95, then 399. Then if you are not prepared to sell to your family and friends a lot! Then you need anywhere from 500-2000 for advertising. Be sure you have money when walking into this business.

so are you saying you had a problem with this business? Or that it was costing you too much money?

Did you like the product??
Or was there hidden fees for the marketing system that you did not know about?

I am just curious why you would post this, unless it comes from personal experience.

Alerting others who are thinking of the business, to be prepared for hidden costs in marketing, sign up and monthly fees.

I am involved with both these companies, and think they absolutely ROCK!

tiger7 is right about the initial fees, although you need to agree to the charges for the decision package prior to your order being placed. The $399 is for your online business membership and distributorship, both are business expenses that are write offs. As for any costs beyond those, it is entirely up to the individual entrepreneur as to what they are. It is easier if one has a larger advertising budget, however you can find all kinds of marketing methods that are low cost or no cost to start your business. These free methods obviously take more time and effort, but they do work. With absolutely every business there are monthly costs/fees, it is just a fact and this business is no different. Again, as an individual entrepreneur, you set these based on your own personal situation.

With the online system, you do not need to rely on trying to sell to your family and friends, although I am sure you will want to once you figure out how incredible the products are. Being online, your marketplace is so much larger than you might imagine.

I was in a business for about a year, great products and company but was very expensive to join, I could not get many sales. Even with the great results I got from taking the products, I still had a tough sale to get people signed up.
After that year, I looked for a similar opportunity that was more affordable,what I found was a opportunity that had no hidden fees, no sign up costs. All you had to do was buy some product and you become a distributor, the product is fantastic you just add it to water. The total business cost for me is $25 bucks a month for a 30 day supply. After about two weeks, I am getting sign ups to my opportunity and leads daily. Plus my warm market is more eager to learn about the products and opportunity because of the low cost to join, and they can see the potential to make it work for them as well.

With monthly backoffice fees, merchant fees, having to pay products upfront then get paid by clients, advertising is $500-$2000 a month and cost of your own products. I didnt exaggerate! Dont minimize if you are trying to promote. I just wanted others to be prepared, not bad mouthing products but misleading isnt going to help.
