Herbalife holistic treatments have evolved with time. The home based distribution business is a generally home based business. It is comprised of “club” members. The cornerstone of the business is weight-control and nutritional items.
Those who distribute the products tend to sell from home with just a few owning store fronts. The company is an on demand business where owners don’t have to invest in a large supply of products, unlike some other home based businesses. The lower demand for items on hand allows more people to get involved in distribution as there is not a large initial overhead.
More than just low overhead the club format has other business advantages. It encourages clients to come to the distributor unlike some home businesses. The company also claims that customers who start with them tend to offer repeat business, lowering the amount of searching representatives need to do for customers.
Even in a shaky economy the company has continued to post growth. Analysts expect to see a significant increase in value as sales climb to $856.6 million.
The company started south of the border and has migrated to the U.S. with 8,500 clubs. Mexico has a largest amount of clubs, estimated to be 25,000.
The company is headquartered in California, though most of Herbalife sales are outside of the country. There is some concern in the industry that the personal care products and cosmetics offered by the company are not highly ranked. But the supplement business continues to thrive and the club offerings continue to grow.
