OBJECTIVE OF STUDY
Integrated Marketing Communications is a simple concept.
It ensures that all forms of communications and messages
are carefully linked together. while the term "multi-level
marketing" describes the compensation plan. Other terms
that are sometimes used to describe multi-level marketing
include "word-of-mouth marketing", "interactive
distribution", and "relationship marketing".
Amway (short for American Way) is an
American multinational direct-selling company
using multi-level marketing techniques that
sells a variety of products, primarily in the
health, beauty, and home care markets.
Amway's approach to direct selling is the
critical relationship between Amway and the
seller or distributor.
Most of the people join Amway by force of
other distributors and some of them join by
seeing success of other in Amway business.
Amway’s protestations that it’s not a
pyramid scheme; it is only through the
pyramid commission structure that anyone
can ever hope to reach their “limitless”
earning potential. On a typical sale, there is
a pyramid of distributors. Anyone over age
of 18 can establish a business as an Amway
distributor and can choose to work their
business on a part- time or full-time basis.
Why Do People
Working Style In Amway
We become a distributor for a
low, low entry fee. This makes us
a retail franchise. We sell Amway
products for a profit, or we buy
them for ourselves. But if we
want to make real money, we
sign up with other distributors.
They’ll be our down line, and
when they sell anything, we get
paid a commission.
Amway Sales and Marketing Plan
Amway practices direct selling which
is 'A method of selling goods directly
to the consumer by an independent
Distributor. A Distributor can then
introduce further Distributors and
generate income from retail profits
supplemented by bonus payments
based upon the total sales of the
group built by a Distributor'

ABOs operate independently as

distinct supply chain, placing a strong emphasis on its ABOs. They are able to focus

and ABOs helps to shape future changes in products and the service provided.

Its organizational structure is based on a network of
ABOs who work independently. Therefore, it is
important that Amway sets the standards of ethical
business behavior for the people who work with, and
for, the company. It demonstrates these standards by
setting rules of conduct and codes of ethics.
Amway’s distributors are joining the company
only by seeing successful business owner
(distributer) and blindly join the company that
may not only cause to distributor but the company
also suffers loss.
