Why Herbalife Doesn't Work - Universal Distributor Saturation

Introduction | Work from Home page 1 2 3 | Small Business | Trying Anything to Sell page 1 2 | Universal Distributor Saturation | Active Ingredient? | Summary

Historically, it has been very, very hard to recruit successful herbalife distributors to work beneath you. How do I know that? Well, it is easy, if you understand exponential growth.

Herbalife has been around for about 20 years, and while there are a lot of Herbalife distributors, not everyone is an Herbalife distributor. I don't know how many there are in the world right now, but I am certain that it is less than 200 million. Does that make sense? That would be one Herbalife distributor for every 30 people on the face of the earth. Surely there can't be more than that.

Now during the 20-year history of Herbalife, distributors have constantly attempted to recruit new people into the company. In fact, a whole lot of combined effort goes into recruiting new distributors. The Herbalife marketing material might make you think that it is possible to recruit 3 new distributors each month. But, what if everyone selling Herbalife was that successful? In one month there would be 3 new distributors, the next month 9, and the next month 27, then 81, 243, and 729. In eight months, there would be 6,561 new distributors down this line, and in 18 months, there would be 129 million new distributors! 129 million people walking around with "lose weight now" buttons! It is easy to calculate just get out a calculator and punch in "times 3" 18 times. or look at this chart.

Well, that obviously didn't happen, because Herbalife has been in business for 20 years! 

What if each distributor only recruited two new distributors each month? Well, that would take longer, but in two months, there would be 4 distributors, then in 3 months, there would be 8, then 16. In six months there would be 64 distributors, 12 months there would be 4,096, and in 22 months, there would be 4 million. In 36 months, there would be 68 billion Herbalife distributors! use a calculator, or look at this chart.

Now, that didn't happen either, because, again, herbalife has been in business for 20 years, and they seem to have about a million distributors. It must be very, very hard to recruit people.

It was probably easier in 1980 and 1981.  The herbalife name was unknown, and there was something of a natural-foods mania. People sold Herbalife distributorships to their friends and families across the United States.

Then a bit later, other people, bilingual or citizens of foreign lands brought herbalife to their home countries, where they found an open and eager market for green pills and the "work at home" business opportunity.

If you read through the success stories on the Herbalife corporate page, as I have, you see this story time and again: The first people into a new area make money.

Here are some examples: 

 The most famous example is John and Susan Peterson.  From what I have read, I believe they were the first to bring Herbalife into Mexico. Now that is an real opportunity.



Take a glance at the graphs on the first page of this Forbes article by Seth Lubove, written in 1997.  See how sales increase in a country, then decrease? Combine this information with the citizenship cross-section of those Herbalife success stories; there are only so many Herbalife success stories a country can support.

 If you are the first into an area, there are more people to sell to.  It is as simple as that. If you are in the Herbalife business, I suggest finding a new, virgin territory to introduce the Herbalife products. Avoid the following countries:


Argentina 
Australia 
Austria 
Belgium 
Botswana 
Brazil 
Canada 
Chile 
China 
Colombia 
Croatia 
Cyprus 
Czech Republic 
Denmark 
Dominican Republic 
Finland 
France 
Germany 
Greece 
Hong Kong 
Iceland 
India 
Indonesia 
Israel 
Italy 
Jamaica 
Japan 
Korea 
Latvia 
Lesotho 
Mexico 
Morocco 
Namibia 
Netherlands 
New Zealand 
Norway 
Panama 
Philippines 
Poland 
Portugal 
Puerto Rico 
Republic of Ireland 
Russian Federation 
Slovak Republic 
South Africa 
Spain 
Swaziland 
Sweden 
Switzerland 
Taiwan 
Thailand 
Turkey 
United Kingdom 
United States 
Venezuela 

But don't bother bringing it into an area that is too poor, like Kenya or Somalia.

You see, Herbalife doesn't know or care if your area is already saturated. All of the investment has been made by YOU. They don't take any of the blame for totally overbooking your market with distributors. 

 They are churning them out as fast as they can sign them up.
