The Power of Network Marketing
Network marketing is the term for the cutting-edge distribution system that channels goods or
services directly from the manufacturer to the consumer through a “network” of independent
distributors or consultants. According to the World Federation of Direct Selling Associations, the
network marketing industry is the frontier of business in the United States, growing from $16
billion to over $30 billion in direct sales over the last 10 years with over 14 million salespeople,
and globally, there are over $105 billion in sales with over 61 million distributors!
Benefits of Direct Selling or Network Marketing:
Low start-up cost | Minimal overhead | Hands-on way to sell product one-on-one | Face-
to-face selling builds tremendous long-term client loyalty | Business impacts an Arbonne
Independent Consultant’s life directly with rewards and compensation.
According to the 2007 Direct Selling Association
2007 U.S. Retail Sales = $30.80 Billion
15 Million U.S. Salespeople
32.8% of Sales were Personal Care
21.4% of Sales were Wellness
“As more and more direct sellers come to understand the global marketplace they are in,
they will continue to expand their businesses. And more and more corporate executives and
entrepreneurs will come to realize the appeal of the person-to-person selling model.”
— Joseph Mariano, Direct Selling Association (DSA) Secretary, Board of Directors
Deciding on a Company
Success in direct sales depends on your choice of company. Your vehicle to success needs
all parts working. Four key business principles have to be present, according to Dr. Charles
King, Harvard graduate, University of Illinois at Chicago professor and business consultant:
Marketplace Demand, Consumable Product, Timing and Leveragability.
Arbonne supplies the demand and the consumable product. The best timing is now. And
leveragability is ensured by how the Arbonne business community works.

The Value of Time Leveraging
Preferred Clients/Consultants1, Managers and Vice Presidents can earn commissions,
overrides and bonuses, based on their own sales of products and the sales of their downline
of sponsored Arbonne Independent Consultants in the United States, its territories2, Canada
and the International Markets in which Arbonne does business. Arbonne also sells promotional
materials — known as Business Aids — that do not generate overrides and bonuses to
Arbonne Independent Consultants because these are sales support tools, not products.
During 2007, the Company paid in excess of $226 million* in overrides and bonuses to Arbonne
Independent Consultants in the United States and its territories2. These payments are reflected
in the table below:
