Hey there Sea Changers… Recently I have been looking into the world of Multi Level Marketing (a.k.a Network Marketing) to see if there are some online business opportunities there. One traditional area that has been building a little in this space recently is within Fashion and Clothing.

clothing mlm - header

So, in order to make things a little easier for those of you interested in checking this out, I have created an outline below of the MLM fashion companies that I have found in my travels. Let's check them out below:

What is MLM?

Multi-level marketing (MLM) programs are the traditional mainstay of the ‘party plan' world of products such as Tupperware, Mary Kay and Amway etc. and, of course within the beauty/cosmetics, supplements and essential oils markets. It is not as prevalent within the clothing industry but as MLMs have become more popular in recent times – mainly due to the fact that much of the sales and marketing is now being managed online – companies in other niches are starting to get in on the action.

Get Away From the Rat Race and Work From Home

Anyone wanting to build an online business can get started using Wealthy Affiliate because it has all the tools you need!

You too can start your very own online business here that can make you money from anywhere in the world!!

The ‘multi level' aspects of MLM come from its hierarchical nature in which you make commissions based not only on those that you sell to, but also the sales of those whom you ‘sign' into membership arrangements as well.

In short, the process works as follows:

  1. You join the program, either via referral from another person (known as your up line) or directly through their website.
  2. You promote the products of the company via parties, workshops or online.
  3. As you make sales, you offer incentives to your customers to sign up as a member of the program (there are different names for this but they all mean the same thing).
  4. That new member is then placed ‘underneath' you in a hierarchical arrangement (known as your down line).
  5. You, and a number of levels of your up line, then gain extra commissions for everything they sell as well.
  6. If they manage to refer their customers into memberships, they also become a member of your down line allowing you to make up line commissions as well.

The number of levels of your up and down lines will vary depending on the program you have joined. Commission rates will also change as your down line grows or contracts and many will also offer other incentives such as total company sales percentages and/or access to membership prizes as your own business grows.

How do they calculate commissions?

When it comes to the earning of money via MLM, most programs manage their downline commissions and rankings via the calculation of Personal Volume (PV) points (there are different definitions of this such as Commission, Business or Group Volume (CV, BV or GV) but they all mean the same thing).

Most MLM programs manage it this way in that commissions are paid on the points assigned to a product rather than the entire sales total. For example, if a product retails for $100 and has a 50PV rating (these generally vary from product to product) then the commission is calculated on the $50 purchase only. So if a commission rate for a product is 20% then it will generate a $10 payment to the sponsor (i.e. 20% of the $50 commissionable amount).

PV calculations can range from 1 point per $1 up to 1 per $1.50 or even $2. Obviously the closer to the dollar mark the calculation the better. In addition, most programs assign minimum PV sales per month – either personally or via customer sales – in order to qualify for commissions. Payments and rankings are then also calculated based on the total PV of the member, and their downline.

Clothing MLM Companies

Ok, let's have a look (in no particular order)…

cabi

cabi mlm review - Opportunity

Originally called ‘Carol Anderson by Invitation’, cabi is an MLM clothing brand that describes itself as “a company for women by women” and was founded in 2001 when Carol Anderson and Kimberley Inskeep started to talk about how women needed both a better way to shop and a better way to work. From there, with the phrase, “…Affect lives through relationships” as their mantra, they asked 10 like-minded friends to brainstorm with them and cabi was born. Based in the U.S, cabi has grown from those original 12 founders to generate over $250 million in revenue in 2016. It operates in the U.S, U.K and Canada.

Ok, so we can keep this simple – cabi sell women’s fashion. Their product range can be purchased in three categories – Casual, Dressy and Work – and includes:

  • Dresses
  • Tops
  • Bottoms
  • Jackets
  • Denim
  • Plus Size
  • Sweaters
  • Accessories
  • Jewelry
  • Shoes

Item costs appear to fall into the low to medium price range of around $50 to $100 per piece.

Essential Bodywear

Essential Bodywear - Opportunity

Essential Bodywear (EBW) was founded in 2003 by Carrie Charlick and Marcia Negiro after it became apparent to them that bra shopping was a “major bummer” for women. From that day forward, they have utilised their direct selling party plan model “to help with one of life’s biggest downers and make shopping for bras, panties, and shapewear fun and easy”. EBW is based in Michigan in the U.S.

Essential Bodywear, as the name may suggest, sells a complete range of undergarments that can be custom fitted to the needs of women of all sizes. Their product range includes:

  • Bras
  • Panties
  • Workout wear
  • Shape wear
  • Maternity undergarments
  • Accessories

Essential Bodywear - Stripe 2

The Essential Bodywear MLM program calls their members ‘EBW Representatives’ who are part of an extremely simple and perhaps ‘old school’ program with a basic retail structure only. It should be noted here that whilst I have seen ‘rumours’ of a downline commission arrangement within my research, I have not been able to locate any figures and/or commission rates anywhere so for this post, I am assuming that there are none (would love for any comments below if they can be located somewhere). So on that note, here are the basics as I have found them…

Base Commission rate: 25 – 37% on commissionable products on retail sales

Down line commission rates: None

Minimum monthly spend to qualify for commissions

None.

Payment terms: Monthly.

Application required?: Yes, Application form on website.

Purchase requirements to join: Yes

New EBW Representatives are required to purchase a starter kit in order to become active. The initial outlay for this is $199 for the basic kit or $499 for the builders kit.

Marketing materials provided: Personalised website and training.

The LuLaRoe MLM program calls their members ‘Independent Fashion Retailers' (IFRs) who are part of what appears to be a fairly simple program with a basic retail and downline commission structure with a couple of extra bonus options thrown in for good measure.

Base Commission rate: 25 – 50% (the difference between wholesale purchase price and retail selling price)

Down line commission rates: 0.6 – 5% to four levels (level 1 down line for initial rank is 3%)

Thirty-One Gifts MLM Review - products

The Thirty-One Gifts MLM program calls their members ‘Consultants’ who are part of what appears to be a simple program with a common retail and downline commission structure. Unfortunately I have not been able to locate their compensation plan either on their website or in a complete version via an online search.

To be honest, I never understand why MLM programs hide these details however I have cobbled together some information from bits and pieces on the websites of individual consultants. Happy for you to comment below if my information is inaccurate but here are the basics as I have found them…

Base Commission rate: 25%

Down line commission rates: 2 – 11% to 2 levels (level 1 down line is 2% – rank Senior Consultant and above)

Minimum monthly spend to qualify for commissions

To qualify for downline commissions, Consultants are required to maintain ‘Active’ status via the generation of $200 in PV over a rolling 3-month period. This can be made of personal or customer sales. Base 25% sales commissions however can be earned from day 1 without the need to become Active – however they must reach that status in the first three months to continue to earn.

Payment terms: Monthly.

Application required?: Yes, Application form on website.

Purchase requirements to join: Yes

New Consultants are required to purchase one of three Starter kits ranging from $59 to $179

Ongoing purchases are not mandatory however the website does highlight discounts of 25% for consultants. It can also be assumed that as the party plan model appears to be the major sales process for this program that further purchases of samples may be required to ensure demonstration stock is available at all times.

Marketing materials provided: Training resources, sales and marketing materials and personalized website

etcetera

etcetera MLM Review - Opportunity

etcetera was founded in the year 2000 by William Rondina who has built a company selling NYC designed women’s fashion items using quality fabrics from Europe.

etcetera is based in New York City with Stylists who sell products via seasonal trunk showings of the company’s four collections each year in over 660 cities.

etcetera operates within the women’s fashion industry with a large and interesting array of apparel (sold in seasonal releases) including:

  • Jackets
  • Dresses
  • Knits
  • Blouses
  • Skirts
  • Pants
etcetera MLM Review - Products

The etcetera MLM program calls their members ‘Stylists’ who are able to incorporate two selling options into their program:

  1. Trunk Show Stylist – This is the traditional clothing MLM operation where Stylists show a complete set of samples in the privacy of their home or within one of etcetera showrooms.
  2. Digital Stylists – This entails the use of online methods to display and sell products to customers via virtual trunk shows.

Ok, now as far as the rest of the program goes, I have been unable to locate any information in regards to the compensation plan either via the etcetera website or within the sales pages of actual stylists. This is not uncommon for MLM Programs but also makes it difficult for new members to determine whether it is worth joining or not.

I usually like to only take information purely from the main website of the platform owner so that I am reporting what new potential stylists would see, however in this case I am taking what I can get and making assumptions on the rest based on how other programs within this niche operate. I would love however to be corrected, or informed within the comments below.

Base Commission rate: The best numbers I have seen is 25 – 50% – based on monthly sales figures

Down line commission rates: Not Located

Minimum monthly spend to qualify for commissions: Not Located

Payment terms: Not Located

Application required?: Yes, Application form on website.

Purchase requirements to join: Not Located

etcetera bases its operations on the sale of seasonal kits for its trunk shows, with this in mind most other programs of this type require their Stylists to purchase a seasonal ‘trunk’ as they are released. Based on the cost of the items within the etcetera site, if this is the case then a budget of over $1000 – $2000 or more may be necessary

Marketing materials provided: A personal online store, tools & apps, marketing materials, extensive training.

How to find your own MLM programs

The sites above have hopefully provided you with a good cross section in regards to what is available within the world of fashion based MLM programs. That does not mean that you cannot find others that better suit what it is that you are trying to do within this space. Luckily for us, there is a simple way to find these programs online.

All you need to do is enter “MLM: niche type” into your search engine (substituting ‘niche type‘ for whatever product it is that you are choosing to sell). So to find possible MLM sites that offer clothing related products, you can try “MLM: clothing” within your search engine (Note: you will have to trawl through a lot of reviews – good and bad to find them – oh and MLM is actually a fashion label as well so some further searching may be required – I actually changed my search below):

clothing mlm

In most cases, you will need to apply for the program before you are allowed to promote their products – This is generally not as regimented as many affiliate marketing programs however if asked for more information don’t take this step lightly or you may be rejected. On top of the basic information, MLM programs may want to know:

  • Why you want to join
  • How you plan to promote their products.

Most platforms however will provide you with a good amount of promotional materials such as text links, ad banners, posters, guides, e-books and so on. Many even provide a personalised website within which to manage your sales.

Conclusion

So… There are some of the best MLM Clothing companies to sew into a downline business. I hope it has been helpful for you as you commence your own online multi level marketing business and as usual, please do not hesitate to comment below if you have any questions, need some advice or have any experiences to share.

Introducing Wealthy Affiliate, My #1 Recommendation for Setting Up Your Own Online Business

wealthy affiliate new home page

When I started, I knew I wanted to work online, but had absolutely no idea where to begin! You see I had watched friends of mine run a sales party to sell essential oils and someone asked if they could just sell them online?

Then, as I sat on the bus heading into my office job, I started to wonder if I could do just that, sell essential oils online.

Anything to stop having to catch this bus to and from work every day right!

The trouble was, as I mentioned above, I had no idea how to even start.

So of course I started to look around online and found all these courses! They all promised me riches then took my money but left me with no riches!

Then I stumbled across the program that didn’t promise me riches, but told me it could help me get started even with no experience!

So I did that, joined Wealthy Affiliate that was it, and the rest as they say, is history!

But it doesn’t come without work!

That is the key here! I began on their starter membership and did the training! I then joined as a member and did some more training!

Each night after work, I would do a little more, then a little more.

And to cut a long story short, after 10 months I realized I didn’t really like writing about essential oils, so I sold the site for about $2000. But I had learned so much that I started another – about fishing and camping!

Then, after 18 months (by which time it had earned me close to $10k), I was offered $17k for the site, so I sold it too.

Now, through my travel blog, I’ve been able to fund my passion for travel and explore different places around the world.

In the past few months, I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to some amazing destinations, including Bali, Los Angeles, Dallas, Vancouver and Las Vegas.

The success of my travel blog has allowed me to fully fund my travels and explore new destinations with my family.
