Vorwerk MLM Review

Hey there sea changers, and welcome back to my series of MLM reviews. Today we are going to work our way into the kitchen with my Vorwerk MLM Review. Now Vorwerk may not be a name that you instantly recognise however it is their signature product that you probably will know – the Thermomix. This is the all in one kitchen top appliance that chops, dices, mixes and cooks just about everything you can imagine.

And for those of you interested, it is commonly sold via the old party plan method so with that in mind is Vorwerk a MLM worth checking out? Let's have a look…

Vorwerk MLM Review - Consultant blurb

What is MLM?

Multi-level marketing (MLM) programs are the mainstay of the ‘party plan' world of products such as Tupperware, Mary Kay and Amway etc. and more and more, within the home based niches as well. And as advances in technology (not to mention current world events) have allowed for demonstrations to be held online, more and more people are starting to check these companies out as a means of earning some extra cash.

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.

Who are Vorwerk?

Vorwerk MLM Review - Home

Vorwerk & Co. was founded in Wuppertal in 1883 by the Mittelsten Scheid family which over those past 137 years has now grown to become a “broadly diversified, international corporate group”. Vorwerk stands for continuity, change and personal contact.

The company is still based in Wuppertal, Germany.

What do they Sell?

As I mentioned above, Vorwerk's signature product is the Thermomix – currently selling at the TM6 Model. However, they also sell a large range of home cooking and cleaning products including:

  • Thermomix
    • Thermomix® TM6™
    • Cook-Keys
    • Mixing Bowls
    • Spare Parts

However these do not appear on official websites that I have found.

MLM Program outline

The Vorwerk MLM program calls their members Consultants however 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 Vorwerk website or within the sales pages of actual Consultants. That said, Vorwerk is a legitimate and real company who have provided products and a popular MLM program for over 100 years. The lack of information however does make 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 members 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 the MLM market operate. I would love however to be corrected, or informed within the comments below.

Base Commission rate: The best numbers I have seen is $220 per Thermomix unit sold (this rises based on the number sold)

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:

To become and Consultant, new enrollees must purchase a Thermomix kit worth $USD2000 to allow for demonstrations to be undertaken – There are payment plans for this.

I have not seen any record of ongoing purchase requirements (unless you count food etc. for your demonstrations).

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

Most MLM programs manage commissions in that they are paid on the points assigned to a product rather than the entire sales total. Again, the points allocation systems or arrangements is not available on this site.

How can I get paid?

As there is no compensation plan available, I am going to complete the following based on traditional and standard MLM payment structures. These are as follows…

Personal Sales Commissions

Personal Sales (or Retail) Commissions are the base commissions earned for personal sales made via personal demonstrations, parties or personalised websites. Commissions rates usually range from 20% – 50% based on monthly point allocations assigned to generated sales.

In some cases, members will be required to meet minimum sales targets to qualify for retail commissions.

Line/Unilevel Commissions

Line or Unilevel commissions are the basic commissions that are prevalent within most MLM programs where payments are made to a number of levels based on the attainment of personal points targets and total sales within down line legs.

To qualify for line commissions, members are usually required to meet a minimum personal and down line sales targets (based on point allocation). Commonly, these target figures increase with rank up achievements.

Ranking structure

Most MLM programs use ranking structures on which to base commission payments and other bonuses upon. Rank progression is usually determined by both the number of members within down line legs, and the total sales made by those legs per month. Ranks can rise and fall based on the ability (or dis-ability) to reach the required member and sales targets.

As mentioned above, ranks and ranking qualifications for the Vorwerk MLM program are not available.

Vorwerk MLM Review - Consultants

What is good about it?

So, after a good look around the site and looking at all the options I could find, I do like the following:

  • This is a popular and interesting company.
  • Good array of homeware and kitchen products.
  • Ability to make good ‘high ticket' commissions.

What is no so good about it?

There are also some things to be aware of including:

  • Any real information in regards to this program is not available.

How much can you make?

Vorwerk does not provide an income disclosure statement on its website however as with most MLM programs, it has to be assumed that the percentage of members making the upper rank levels – and hence earning a living – is very low (usually less than 1%).

My final thoughts

Look, MLM is not an easy platform to make money in and there is absolutely nothing that I have seen here to put this program above the many others I have seen.

To be honest, the lack of information available can usually mean one of two things:

  1. The company has something to hide
  2. The company is trying to promote a sense of exclusivity for its program

Let's hope here that it is the latter. Regardless, I would be undertaking a lot more research before taking the plunge into this one.

Conclusion

So there you have it, my honest review and appraisal of the Vorwerk MLM program. I hope it has been of assistance but as usual, if you have any questions or experience with this program please do not hesitate to reach out by commenting below – especially if any of my information is inaccurate (or you can fill in the blanks).

Paul and Nic Logo - Make that Sea Change

Hey there, my name is Paul and I am the owner and founder of Make That Sea Change.  I spent 30 years in a cubicle working the 9 to 5 grind and just wanted to live at the beach.  I was lucky enough to achieve that with the help of my wife and our new Pilates studio.

Then I decided to help fund my new sea change with some affiliate marketing.  I joined Wealthy Affiliate, and as they say, the rest is history.

Let me know how I can help you fund your sea change today!

Note: This is an unbiased review as I am not a member of the any of the programs listed here (and hence make no commissions from any of the links included within this post). The reason for this is that I prefer to write these posts based on what a newbie would be seeing if they were interested in joining – that way I feel I can make a better judgment on what it is that these companies are offering within their programs.
