Are people still making money with FM Group?
FM Group is the all-in-one MLM company- think home products, meets cosmetics, meets coffee and just about everything in between.
They were pretty hot back in 2010 and the company got a lot of attention.
So have I been involved?
This video explains:
All good? Let�s continue�
FM Group is a, er�sell-to-women brand. It�s not just fragrance, or home ware (or coffee, bizarrely) but all of the above and more (see: Organo Gold, Tupperware, and Monat).
It stands for Frederico Mahora Group and was brought into being by a man named Arthur Trawinski in 2004. It works internationally, with bases in Europe, USA, Brazil, Australia and China.
This means it works for US citizens � it�s not one of those that only operates in far flung places, which is great if you fancy selling perfume. They�re hardly old hats at MLM selling but they�ve spread far and wide and seem relatively successful.
They sell a lot of stuff. This includes:
There�s Pure, Intense, Pheremone (right) Luxury, Youth and Utique. Their Pure Line sits around $17.00 per perfume, which is hardly crazy expensive for 50ml of fragrance.
Aloe Vera makes an entrance here, as well as fascinating sounding things like Hello Honey, Triumph of Orchids and Gold Regenesis. After a quick search, the most expensive product was eye serum at $50.00 odd, which again is not the upper echelon for the market.
All the usual suspects. For the youngest is a bit weird, containing an uber bright palette for�.kids?
They sell scented mists for dogs. I appreciate canines can smell a bit, but essentially they�re perfumes. If they didn�t also sell shampoo, I�d be laughing. There�s also air fresheners, kitchen stuff and so on.
I feel like they had a great range of products and realized most MLMs are natural supplement fanatics, panicked, and decided to join in. Coffees have no bearing on the rest of their line and feel a bit last minute, and totally unnecessary. Their functional coffees look like a power up out of Fallout � metabolism, focus, energy and antioxidant. Stay safe out there!
Right, you�ve got a veritable plethora of products. I�m pretty sure you�ll find something someone might want to buy. Whether this aversion to specialism is a good thing or not remains to be seen. Generalists can�t be specialists.
Besides, it�s probably a totally normal�wait. This is not doctored in any way.
Is this a cunning ploy, or genuine goodwill? You don�t see that kind of commitment in your everyday MLM.
Their compensation plan is also free to access, which is great � no secrecy here. (1)
The plan comes with a basic glossary to explain things to newbies. Shows you a lot about MLM over complex structures when the glossary goes on for six pages, but let�s get into it.
The plan is made up of three parts � Marketing Plan 1 (Magnolia Club), Marketing Plan 2 (Orchid Club) and Marketing Plan 3 (Star Club.) These all determine commission, bonus incentives and training.
That profit screenshot turns out to be as applicable as a broken perfume bottle. Do you need legs that sell to earn commission? Of course you do.
There�s also volume commission, based on your monthly sales, coming in at 3% to 21%. Team commission is based on total team sales at 3% to 21%. You gain access to orchid bonuses once you rise through the ranks, capping at about 1.5% to 9%. Apparently there�s also the opportunity to qualify for a car.
Obviously on top of product profits, where you buy products at distributor price and sell for market price, pocketing the difference. It doesn�t say what discount you get as a distributor, other than an example of buying an �11.99 product (yes, that�s GBP) at �8.20. It might differ from product to product � who knows?
The plan goes into relative detail about calculating commission, which is awesome. Normally newcomers are left to fend for themselves. The fm group is, in some ways, no different � you only get training once you reach a certain rank, which seems a bit backwards.
Surely the newest people need the most help, right? It seems to favor experienced sales people and not the average civilian, which is a shame, but their plan is pretty comprehensive and full of sums.
A good opportunity to make money online? I doubt it.
A big, glaring problem is the lack of ongoing costs. I can�t see any monthly fee or starting fee, which could tip the scale in either direction of good or bad. The product line is huge, which means you can appeal to a lot of customers, though you might want to find out what each customer likes and stick to that. Selling as a jack-of-all-trades doesn�t scream legitimacy.
That said, the child�s products are unusual and mean you can advertise to kiddies and their mothers. More selling in a home than literally anyone could want!
The plan reads like a school math test but at least it�s mostly all there, and they explain everything enough that anyone could feasibly do it. The only thing left to do is dive into the testimonials section to see what totally unbiased (cough) employees and totally undoctored (hmm) customers have to say.
There�s an explosion of exclamation marks and every synonym of �amazing� you can think of. We�ve got �the highest quality make up in the world�, �I can�t live without, seriously� I love all FM products they are amazing!!!!�. All of those are verbatim.
The hysteria of these testimonials hammers home the MLM problem. If these people are genuinely that excited by car shampoo, then credit to them. Otherwise, it adds a level of phony that was otherwise absent from fm group.
All in all, it�s a decent MLM. There�s lots of products at reasonable prices and you�ve got a huge market to cover, so you�re less likely to run out of people to sell to.
Some of the products are also relatively evergreen. IF someone loves foundation, they�ll keep buying it when they run out every few months. It�s better than flogging hoovers which should really last several years, leaving you twiddling your thumbs and praying it breaks before your savings dry up.
The coffee add-on seems weird and the lack of training are two big minuses
