The Right Market
By 2007, over £40 million a day was spent in the UK on non-prescriptive health and nutrition products, with this market place expected to rise to £47 million a day by 2011 *
The world renowned economist and entrepreneur Paul Zane Pilzer has identified the health and nutrition sector as the next trillion dollar industry
Why? People no longer blindly rely on the medical profession and prescription drugs to ‘put things right’ if something goes wrong with their health.
Attitudes have changed, with people taking responsibility for their own health and well-being. They look to a more complementary, preventative and self-help approach.
People are very aware of adverse effects to their health…. of high levels of air, food and water pollution, lack of exercise, poor diet, and excessive stress.
Led by the ‘baby boomers’, and now followed by their offspring, people not only want to look better, feel better, live longer, but are also prepared to pay for it.
Companies providing quality, natural, pure products for this market place, are not simply going to prosper, they are going to boom.

Forever Living Products is the world’s largest grower and producer of Aloe Vera and Aloe Vera based products, together with products from the beehive, nutritional, personal care, weight management, animal care, skin care and beauty products.
The company has always had a policy of producing unique natural products, which are not tested on animals, and are free from pesticides, insecticides, artificial flavourings, colourings and GM modification.
The Right Method of Distribution
Network Marketing is simply a different method of distribution which has emerged as the most powerful way for companies to move their products and services to customers.
Network Marketing also represents true free enterprise, allowing people to build their own low start-up cost, home based business.
A distributor buys a range of high quality products at wholesale direct from a manufacturer for personal use and to conversationally market to consumers at retail. This happily has little to do with sales skills and techniques, as the distributor is recommending products which they personally use and gain benefit from.
The manufacturer has no traditional distribution overhead costs, leaving it free to reward its distributors extremely well.
In a traditional, but old-fashioned, distribution business the supply chain is from the Manufacturer to a National Agent, and on to a Wholesaler, then a Retailer and finally the Consumer.
Up to 50% of the final costs of goods are spent on paying advertising, salaries, commissions and benefits of the supply chain and the sales force who sell those products.
Now well-established, proven and with massive sales world-wide, Network Marketing should not be confused with illegal pyramid schemes, most of which are short-lived, involve large up-front joining costs, and where products or services are moved as ‘pass the parcel’ with price rises on each ‘pass’ and no real customers.
The Right Profession
A profession in Network Marketing can provide a unique vehicle for building a business yielding anything from a few hundred pounds a month, part-time extra income, through to total long-term financial security with an extraordinary lifestyle.
It starts with a Distributor using products, gaining benefits and then feeling comfortable to naturally recommend them to a handful of customers. Without necessarily being aware of it most people will have already done something similar in recommending, for example, a film, restaurant, or book.
The strength of these independent Distributorships is that they avoid traditional business headaches such as capitalisation, administration, accounting, data processing, product development, purchasing, production, packaging, production of sales support materials, warehousing and so much more… all handled by the Network Marketing company. The Distributor is free to concentrate on building their business.
The Network Marketing company rewards its Distributors well, with commissions and a percentage of all the sales generated in their businesses, paid as bonuses, royalties and overrides.
This can earn them anything from £300 a month part time for a simple retailing business to £3,000 a month part-time, developing a team of people who also want to build a business and develop their own teams. On a more full-time basis, this can lead to very high long-term, residual, pension-style incomes of £5000 to £50,000 or more a month. The choice is theirs!
Everyone in Forever supports and endorses the statutory protection that It is illegal for a promoter or a participant in a trading scheme to persuade anyone to make a payment by promising benefits from getting others to join a scheme. Do not be misled by claims that high earnings are easily achieved. Whilst examples of income potential are not guaranteed, they are realistic illustrations of what can be achieved with hard-work, application, discipline and a learning attitude. Network Marketing is now well respected and proving to be the profession of choice for the 21st Century.
