I signed up initially in early 2001 to take advantage of a discount with their vitamins/supplements. There are different levels that you can come into this company. The initial, at that time, was 20% discount on all products. You can increase your discount in the standard Multi-Level Marketing manner ... get others to sign up beneath you as distributors.

To REALLY make money on this venture ... you need to be at Advisor Level which is a huge initial investment of $3000.00 (at that time), but gives you 40% off the products and gives you portion of the distributors' purchases and sales in your 'line.'

The products are impeccable and work.
Their research is good - they give you all the information you could want (and more) on the product line.
There is as much training as you can possibly swallow and lots of support.

I dislike the idea of my income being influenced by the sales of others - nor do I like the way that MLM companies 'encourage' you to sort of 'push' your down-line toward higher sales for increased income.

This company wasn't terribly pushy though - allowed you to work at your own rate and I enjoyed the discount while i was still selling to some family and friends that were interested in the product (not really making money). I'm not selling now - and without the continued discount, can't really afford the vitamins and supplements either.

It 'could' be a good money maker with a large investment of time and a good amount of money, BUT the opportunity is there if you want to do it ... work it ... whatever.

I think to go into it thinking that you can make a phone call here and there and come out with big bucks would definitely lead to disillusion fast though.

I love Advocare! I am a personal use distributer- and have a 25% discount. The PP is correct that it usually takes $3000 to get the 40% off- but at least right now (and I think about once a year) there is a 'hot deal' where you can be a line of 3 or group of 3 and each place $1000 to get to the advisor level. The products are awesome- I don't think I could live without my Spark and Rehydrate. I don't really sell it- I think people shy away from the sticker price/shock. But if a person drinks pop or gatorade or an energy drink a day then Advocare products would probably save them $. One of my close friends is an advisor and I believe that they make quite a bit of money through commissions and they would never push sales or stocking up. If anyone is interested in more information- pm me!
