Are you considering the Shaklee business opportunity, but need a little more information before jumping on board? If so, I applaud you for performing your due diligence! It is always a good idea to do some research before joining a network marketing company. In this article I will share my thoughts on this business, as I have been involved with the Shaklee business opportunity for over 1 year now.
For starters, let’s clear the slate and get this out of the way now. Shaklee is not a scam. Just because they operate in the network marketing business model many people think that, when in reality Shaklee is a highly respected company with great products and great leadership. Those 2 things are essential for long term success in this business.
Shakee Business Opportunity – Why Shaklee? Why Now?
If you are considering Shaklee for a home business, the question why Shaklee why now is a great place to start. I am going to tackle those questions for you right now.
Why Shaklee? Why Now?
When we talk about the why now part of the equation, it sort of depends on the person. Each person makes the decision to get involved with Shaklee for different reasons. Some people may be looking for a few hundred dollars per month of extra income, while others might be looking to replace an entire income all together. There are so many reasons individuals may say why now, but from a business stand point NOW is the perfect time to get rolling with Shaklee.
You see, Shaklee offers it’s business builders the best case scenario to have success, here is why.
There are 3 key factors Shaklee offers that make this company ideal for anyone looking to get involved with network marketing. There are start ups, slow and steady growth, and international expansion. Shaklee fits all 3 of those criteria!
Unlike many other network marketing companies, Shaklee has not rushed into international expansion. Shaklee has mainly operated in North America, but is now breaking out in many other major countries around the world. Recent countries include Chinca, and Indonesia, with India coming in Fall 2013.
China was wildly successful, and India is expected to exceed that. Therefore, you get the feel of a start up, while at the same time there is sustained slow and steady growth, along with international expansion. The Shaklee business opportunity is an ideal situation for someone looking to build a network marketing business globally.

Shaklee Business Opportunity – How to Build It
For most network marketers, when you start out you will probably talk to friends and family about your new business. These people are your “warm market”. You will talk to them about the products, and talk to some of them about the opportunity.
It is likely that you will find some people to buy products from you, and if you are lucky you will find a business builder or 2 to join you in the business. This is a great way to get started, because it can get some PV (Personal Volume) going for you, which basically equates to a little money coming back your way.
The goal is to accrue as much PV as possible, and the best way to do that is to leverage the efforts of other people. This is known as sponsoring. You can build a great business by simply sharing/selling the products, but the big money will come when you find people to join Shaklee, and help them to grow their own business. The more people you sponsor and help achieve success the better you will do!
If you don’t have a very responsive warm market, you can also build you Shaklee home business online. If you can learn how to generate Shaklee leads online, you can achieve success within Shaklee this way too. The bottom line is that there are millions of people searching for information on Shaklee products, the Shaklee business opportunity, and other home based business information as well. If you can position yourself in front of these people you can make connections with people from all over the world.
Online Marketing is Scary Though!
Let me just say one thing. Marketing your Shaklee business online can be extremely rewarding. Is it easy? No. If it were, everyone would just do it. It takes hard work learning the concepts and strategies it takes to market online effectively. This does not include spamming Facebook and aimlessly throwing links out to your friends and family there. It means learning how to do it the right way, and there are a lot of different strategies to choose from.
The thing is this. Doing it the right way will get you better results faster, and that is what we are after. The way I did this was to learn from trained professionals and take action on the things I learned.
I personally feel that the Shaklee business opportunity is best built with a combination of online and offline strategies. This will give you a good balance, because after all Shaklee is a people business. People join people, not companies. Therefore it is vital to have those offline skills in your arsenal so when you do generate leads online you can talk to them confidently.
