Welcome to my Ardyss Review!

Ardyss International is a Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) Business who has become a leader in figure reshaping in the wellness industry.

In this Ardyss Review, I will be examining this company, products, and more importantly, the MLM Business opportunity that they offer as an Ardyss Distributor.

Is Ardyss a scam, pyramid scheme, or is this a legitimate MLM Business opportunity?  This is my unbiased Ardyss Review.

Company Details & History

Ardyss Logo imageArdyss International was founded in 1991 by the Diaz de Leon family.  However, they did not open their doors to a MLM or Network Marketing business model until 2007.  A business model that would provide a home based business opportunity for willing participants to earn compensation for distributing their products, and recruiting new Distributors to do the same.

Their Products

Ardyss offers a tremendous line of products related to:

  • Personal Care
  • Mens Body Shapers
  • Womens Body Shapers
  • Targeted Nutrition

Popular products include:

  • Ardyss Body Magic
  • Le’Vive
  • Ardyss Body Magic 2 Step System

These products are distributed through a growing number of Ardyss Distributors throughout:

  • Mexico
  • United States
  • Canada
  • Dominican Republic
  • South America
  • Puerto Rico

MLM Business – How it all works

Ardyss Product Review imageArdyss offers three ways to get started as a Distributor:

1. Simply become a Member

This is the ideal option for those who are only interested in selling their products, and do not have an interest in recruiting and building an organization of Distributors.

2. Enroll into their Recurring Order

This will automatically ship products of your choosing to your home every month.  This is the ideal option for those who wish to personally consume their products, and automate their business.

3. Purchase a Power Pack

This option will be required if you wish to optimize your earning potential within the Ardyss Compensation Plan, and will provide you with many of their products to begin sharing with others.

Maximizing your earning potential!

It is important to note that both the purchase of a Power Pack and enrollment into their Recurring Order will qualify you for the maximum commissions and bonuses within the Ardyss Compensation Plan.

While conducting my research for this Ardyss Review, I was unable to determine the cost of their Power Pack.  Ardyss has reserved this information to be shared by the Distributor who has introduced you to Ardyss.  You will need to get in touch with that person to learn the cost for this pack, as well as the minimum purchase requirements for their monthly Recurring Order.

As a new Ardyss Distributor, you will potentially earn from 10 components of the Ardyss Compensation Plan as you achieve sales, and begin to build an organization of Distributors who are working to duplicate your efforts.

I will limit the details of their compensation plan to this, and at the bottom of this Ardyss Review, you will find a link that will provide you with the full details of how Distributors are rewarded within their pay plan.

Distributor Training & Support

Ardyss MLM Review imageLike we have already covered, Ardyss utilizes a Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) business model to distribute products.  Simply put, traditional methods involved in Word-of-Mouth and Network Marketing will be trained and encouraged.  These methods are commonly referred to as Warm Marketing!

To generate sales, you will approach friends, family members, acquaintances, co-workers, neighbors, and anyone who you feel would benefit from their products.  You will enroll those within your Warm Market who express an interest in the MLM business opportunity as a Distributor in your organization.

Upon enrollment, you will immediately be paired with a sponsor.  This person will be your direct line for mentoring and support as you are building your business.

Ardyss will also provide you with training resources and materials.  However, Warm Marketing methods will still be at the core of your training and support as a new Distributor.

Ardyss Review Conclusion

In my opinion, Ardyss is a legitimate business, and should not be considered as a scam or pyramid scheme.  This is proven by the fact that they have been offering highly praised products for more than 20 years.

However, it is important to consider the challenges associated with building a business that is dependent upon your ability and desire to prospect among your network of friends and family members.

You will not be trained to utilize a more modern and effective marketing strategy to build your business, which is the one aspect of Ardyss that I disagree with.

Growing a successful and profitable Ardyss Business is going to require hundreds, if not thousands of customers and Distributors.  With this in mind, we as individuals simply do not possess a large enough list of contacts to sustain and grow a business of this nature.

For those who possess the ability to utilize more effective marketing techniques, and who will not be limited to their small network of friends and loved ones, Ardyss offers a legitimate opportunity with high potential.

For those who are limited to the marketing practices that Ardyss encourages, the majority will not achieve the success that they are hoping for.

Next, learn the exact details of how Ardyss Distributors are compensated as my Ardyss Review continues with their Compensation Plan!

I hope that you have found my Ardyss Review to be informative and educational!  I wish you the best of luck in your search for a home business!

  2. honest review of FLP says:

    Thanks Dave for the review. Just to clarify a few points.
    – You mention the training that focuses on the distributor’s warm market is a negative. That can be said of most of the other traditional MLM companies (including Forever living, Mary Kay with whom I have personal experience, etc) who all tend to base their core training on warm marketing methods. It is usually left to the individual distributors to do their own research and figure out other marketing methodsonce their warm market is exhausted, etc.
    -Product range: Ardys product range is constantly expanding and now includes skincare, personal care, cosmetics…etc so they appeal to a broad consumer base.
    – Business building and compensation: In my opinion Ardyss has one of the best compensation schemes out there and yes they reward you for recruiting other distributers as like all MLM companies, they want to expand…but I don’t agree that you need an extraordinarily big downline or customer base to succeed, certainly not any more than is required for say Forever Living or Mary Kay. You get a whopping 40% retail profit when you sell and although some of their flagship products (shapewear) are not consumables , they also have a vast range of consumable products that can be bought regularly /monthly by customers, so distributors can easily develop a regular customer base and earn a good return for their efforts.
    I would encourage propective distributors to dig a bit further and compare with other MLM companies and they will realise Ardyss has a good proposition.

      Hi there,

      Thank you for taking the time to comment, and I apologize for taking a few days to reply. I have been on vacation.

      I will agree with you concerning the fact that Ardyss International is not the only MLM Company that encourages Warm Marketing methods. In fact, 99% of MLM companies all encourage and train their Distributors to recruit and sell products to their list of family members and friends.

      You mention that it is up to the Distributors to do their own research and figure out other marketing methods once their Warm Market is exhausted. I cannot agree with you more! The problem lies in the fact that many Distributors don’t know what to do or how to proceed in building their business once they have exhausted their Warm Market. They hit a brick wall!

      I will also agree that Ardyss has many great products that will appeal to a large customer base. However, Distributors have to possess the ability to market their products in a manner that they can attract a sizable and loyal customer base. A company can offer the best products in the world, but if they are not marketed effectively, attracting a large and loyal customer base will never happen.

      Again, thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment on my Ardyss Review!

      To your success,

      Dave F.
