usana-awardThis article is not for those who do not believe that MLM or direct selling network marketing is worth the time and effort to build a passive income business.

Such belief can’t be faulted, since in the Philippines, there were so many network marketing and MLM companies that sprouted like mushrooms, cashing in on unknown products and took advantage of people’s “ignorance” only to vanish like a bubble in the air.

To get a good appreciation about the Health and Wellness industry, follow the link to my previous post.

USANA Health Sciences has just opened its direct selling operations in the Philippines. According to the Direct Selling Association of the Philippines, annual direct selling revenues in the country total about $500 million.

On February 14, 2009, it will start its business opportunity program in the Philippines, allowing those who join early to take advantage on the maximum potential to earn. Payout will be made weekly for commissions, starting at a minimum of USD40.00 – maximum of USD1000.00 per week, excluding “matching bonuses” if your entire network produces a minimum of just 250 points.

USANA Health Sciences develops and manufactures high-quality nutritionals, personal care, and weight management products that are sold directly to Preferred Customers and Associates throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Mexico, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

USANA, a leading Health and Nutritionals company has a reputation of being a solid, trustworthy company which is evident in its various awards received from leading publications in the United States.

I suggest, like any other business opportunity, you  investigate USANA yourself. Just click on the link.

The USANA Opportunity

Income Fast Facts

US$91,800 is the average yearly income for an established, full-time USANA Associate (Gold Director and above). US$23,225 is the annual average of those who earned as little as one commission check each month.

– figures based on performance of USANA members, but do not signify income guarantee for other members.

As one of the 25 largest markets globally for direct sales, the Philippines offers USANA a significant direct selling opportunity. USANA’s “binary” program is one of the best in the MLM industry.

Admittedly, I am a skeptic person when it comes to MLM – especially traditional MLM, where “recruitment” and endless meetings take much of your time. USANA takes advantage of the internet and technology, by providing each member online tools to help him grow his USANA business.

I don’t even intend to sell the USANA products. I just hate selling and going after other people and “recruiting” them is a major turn-off. USANA has a unique business opportunity model that is easy to understand – and no, its not just about “duplication” and strategies that make  most traditional MLM businesses “fail”.
