Top 50 MLM Companies by Global Revenue

Top 50 MLM Companies by Global Revenue

 

Which network-marketing companies are the global players in terms of net sales? The top 50 manage to clear at least $200 million annually, with many making billions.

 

Established heavyweights such as Avon and Amway come as no surprise on this list, but relative newcomers (less than 10 years old) are growing fast. The popular Scentsy and Thirty-One Gifts and energy companies Ignite and Ambit Energy demonstrate how quickly companies—and entrepreneurs—can turn a profit using the direct-selling model.

 

And this list doesn’t even include those MLM companies that routinely net more than $100 million a year. See the 60+ honorable mentions at the end of this post.
