I have written plenty of reviews of various multilevel marketing programs through the years. After all my experience I have in the MLM industry, and countless reviews of MLM products there are a few key points I always look at when reading an MLM business which includes Ardyss reviews.

One thing you should expect from Ardyss reviews, or any MLM reviews, is an organized system that allows for an objective evaluation of the program. I personally have a three point system that I use; I look at the product, the company, and the marketing materials.

If you are reading Ardyss reviews that focus on how great the product or program is the review is probably more likely an advertisement than it is a review. You should not only be told about the positive aspects of the program, you should be informed of any negative aspects of the program.

For instance good Ardyss reviews will point out that the skin care and health supplement product lines offered by Ardyss have countless competitors, and the less competition there is for a product the better. Yes, the Body Magic is relatively unique, and seems to have quite a following, which is good, but it is not the whole story.

A definite plus in my book for Ardyss is the company history. They were incorporated back in 1991 which basically means they have nearly twenty years of experience producing the body shaping garments which is their main product. I appreciate the willingness to expand into other product lines that they have demonstrated, but I have concerns about the fields that they have expanded into. This is the kind of impartial analysis that you should find in quality Ardyss review.

As far as the marketing materials, which is my third part of my system, you should not only be told about the brochures, or the web interface that makes recruiting easier, you should be reminded about the importance of knowing how to market in general.

There are bound to be “Ardyss reviews” out there that are more sales pitch than review, but there is plenty of quality information out there on the internet. The internet has revolutionized MLM Business not only as a distribution channel, but more importantly as a place to find information on how to market effectively.

In conclusion, the best Ardyss reviews will take an honest look at the company, both its good and bad aspects. It should be no surprise to find such reviews emphasizing the importance of developing your own marketing strategy to achieve success with the product.

A Brief Review of Ardyss International

I have been working with and reviewing various MLM programs for a while. In my years in the MLM industry I became aware of a shortage of objective reviews, which is why I decided to start doing them. In this article I plan to review Ardyss Internation.

Ardyss International is obviously not the first, and definitely not the last, MLM product I will be reviewing. Anytime I review an MLM opportunity I always use the same three-point system to make my evaluation. I devised my system because it is both simple, and universally applicable.

I basically look at three obvious things, the product, the company, and the marketing strategy that already exists. In design, elegance is simplicity, but rest assured that considering these important things can really help make the decision to join Ardyss International or any other MLM company much easier.

Let us go ahead and start with the product, or rather the product lines, available from Ardyss International. Their primary product line would be their body reshaping garments, like the Body Magic. They have also introduced lines of both health supplements and skin care products, though I cannot help but point out the stiff competition that exists in both of those industries.

Ardyss International its self was incorporated in Las Vegas, NV in 1991. The company’s history may go back farther than that, but that is the date that they use in their own history materials. Ardyss International began primarily in Latin American markets but has been quickly gaining ground across the globe since incorporating and using a multilevel marketing distribution system.

Finally there are the marketing materials. Ardyss International makes a number of brochures that their distributors can use. They also support a web based system that makes internet sales and recruitment easier, which is a definite plus considering how important the internet has become to the MLM industry.

In the end success with Ardyss International, or any other MLM, is going to depend on the marketing knowledge of the distributor. No matter how good the product, how solid the company, and how effective the marketing materials may be, if the distributor does not know how to market effectively they will not succeed.

I strongly recommend to anybody who is already involved in an MLM Business, or is considering joining one like Ardyss International, to go ahead and take the time to educate their self on marketing.

A Review of Ardyss International Complaints

In my time in the MLM industry I have seen plenty of complaints. That includes more than a few Ardyss International complaints. Granted, when you consider how easy the internet has made it for people to voice their opinions it is no surprise that complaints about any MLM product are as common as they are.

To start with, some of the Ardyss International complaints or MLM complaints in general, are in fact valid. Whether a given product is worth its cost is completely subjective to the consumer. Complaints about the price or the effects of the product are valid because the consumer’s feelings are valid, but they are ultimately just opinion.

Many of the Ardyss International complaints are accusations of false or misleading advertising. This is true of any MLM program, not just Ardyss. These complaints typically focus on either the product, or the business opportunity provided by the MLM program. The question is, are such accusations valid?

So are the Ardyss International complaints about the product being falsely advertised true? Well, frankly, I’d be surprised if they were not true at least some of the time. Multilevel marketing systems offer everyday people the chance to own their business. While it is incumbent on companies like Ardyss to attempt to police the actions and claims of their distributors, it is not logistically feasible for them to be keeping tabs on everybody everywhere. This means there are bound to be a small handful of less than scrupulous people willing to make claims about Ardyss products that Ardyss themselves do not make, but that is an issue that crops in multilevel marketing period, not just for Ardyss.

Then there are the Ardyss International complaints that argue that the viability of the multilevel marketing system as a business is overstated. I have seen these kinds of complaints more times than I can count in reference to dozens of multilevel marketing systems regardless of how sound they might be. The usual points of contention stem from the alluring promise of getting paid to do nothing from home, and being something anybody can succeed at.

Then there’s the “anybody can do it” claim. This one is also true; anybody can succeed in an MLM business assuming they have the right tools. Anybody can turn a screw with a screwdriver, too, but attempting to use your fingernail to turn that screw probably will not get you very far.

It is also true that anybody can succeed with a MLM business. Anybody can succeed, if they know the necessary marketing techniques that anybody needs to succeed in MLM. You cannot change a light bulb without a ladder, so how do you expect to succeed in a marketing business if you do not know how to market?

The Ardyss International complaints out there are all variations of the same complaints lodged against any MLM product. Usually people who complain about a MLM Business have either tried on their self, or knew somebody who did, and had terrible results. If you take the time to educate yourself on marketing, you can avoid joining the ranks of the dissatisfied.

The Ardyss Scam – Is there one?

Just like any other MLM product, there are people out there willing to cry foul to anybody who will listen about the dangers of the Ardyss scam. I always take scam accusations seriously, but I have found in my research that all too often in the multilevel marketing business people say something is wrong when in fact nothing is wrong. I feel it is important to look at any claims seriously and I use a systematic approach any time I investigate one.

Essentially I mostly focus on two things when looking at a multilevel marketing program that has been called a scam. The actual product, and the business, typical complaints about a scam are focused on either of these key elements and the Ardyss scam is no different from any other MLM program in this regard.

So let us take a look at the product line and see if there is an Ardyss scam to be found there. Ardyss has a diverse line of products that includes health supplements and skin care products as well as their core line of body reshaping garments. I will be honest, I find myself questioning how well some Ardyss products, like their memory improving health supplement actually work. That being said, body reshaping clothing is anything but a new concept.

While some products may in fact be more placebo than power packed, I feel confident that the primary product, their body reshaping products can effectively change the shape of a person’s body through prolonged and regular use, even if it is only by conditioning the body to perpetually try to suck in the tummy or sit up straight. In short, proclaiming the catalog is the Ardyss scam seems heavy handed and inaccurate to me.

Does this mean that the Ardyss scam is the MLM business opportunity? Well, in my experience lots of people call MLM businesses scams when they feel like they do not live up to the promises of easy wealth and that anybody can succeed in an MLM business.

The truth of the matter is it is very possible to turn any MLM business into an easy source of steady income. However it is not as easy to develop an MLM business to this point. It could take weeks, months, or years, depending on your personal goals. You can be certain allot of work goes into growing the business to such a level.

It is also entirely true that anyone can succeed as an owner of an MLM business. Anybody can succeed, assuming of course that they have the requisite marketing knowledge necessary to sell the product and they have the ability to grow their network. Attempting to succeed in multilevel marketing without the understanding of marketing is like trying to get measurements of a room without the tape measure.

If you want to find success, and not cry, “Ardyss Scam!” as you become increasingly frustrated with your MLM Business, you need a solid grasp of the essential marketing principles that allow you to succeed in any MLM venture regardless of the product.

A Quick Review of the Ardyss Compensation Plan

I have lots of experience with multilevel marketing programs, but if you do not have that experience a MLM compensation plan can be a bit confusing, and the Ardyss compensation plan is no different. There is tons of jargon involved in a compensation plan, and while they all have similar ideas each plan will change the specific terms they use, hence the confusion for novices.

The first part of the Ardyss compensation plan, or any MLM compensation package, is the retail profits. When you become an MLM distributor you essentially purchase product at wholesale, then sell it for retail, pocketing the difference.

The suggested retail mark up for Ardyss products is 40 percent, and that is no small slice. While it might be tempting to try cutting your profit margin in an attempt to boost volume, undercutting is not necessary for boosting sales in multilevel marketing.

With effective marketing you should have no problem moving your product at the suggested retail price. Not only will you not have to worry about upsetting other distributors, you will be increasing your own earnings by boosting your volume without cutting into your profit margin.

The Ardyss compensation plan awards promotions they same way that any MLM plan does, which is based on monthly wholesale orders for you and your network. Getting promoted will allow you to increase the number of people in your downline network that you can get commissions for, and that is obviously a good thing.

Since recruiter’s commissions are based on the whole sale orders of their recruits, the more recruits, and the more active they are, the more money you make. As you build your network and climb the promotion ladder you begin to receive commissions from network members farther and farther from you, and that is where you can start making big money.

On top of these relatively normal provisions, the Ardyss compensation plan also includes a number of bonuses. You are eligible for bonuses for recruiting new distributors, for the orders made by your recruits, and meeting certain sales goals on the group and personal level.

If you want to reach the top of the Ardyss compensation plan, or any MLM Business, you will need to understand how to market well. A solid grasp of marketing principles will not only improve your results, it will help you guide your recruits to better results, too, which means more commissions for you.
