Emerald Teaches Us How To Go Out There and Get Customers!

In a meeting run by the asshole Emerald he said he or the sack of shit Platinum would teach us how to go out there and get customers.

What? You mean there’s more to it than sniping prospects at Safeway, Barnes & Noble, and the kids baseball game?

About an hour later he elaborates by saying the best recruits are people who are young enough not to have heard of Amway, in other words late teens to early 20’s are the best prospects.

The Emerald also extols the virtues of hounding single mothers and people in debt.

He doesn’t say that single mothers are necessarily in debt but he says they are most likely struggling financially and don’t have enough time to spend with their children and an Amway work at home job would be perfect for them. People in debt would like to get out of debt. (Oh boy would Amway be a horrible opportunity for them. Amway = MORE DEBT!!!)

So how do you find people in debt? Most people who are at their limit on 20 credit cards and behind on their rent and water bill don’t usually go around bragging about it. What is an IBO to do? Run up to random people and demand to know their financial position?

Uh huh, they’d probably get a big fuck off for their trouble.

How about sniping customers at Barnes & Noble who are looking at books on how to get out of debt?

IBO’s feel a sense of entitlement to prospecting at Barnes & Noble because that is one of the shops that Amway has a portal for online shopping. Unfortunately management disagrees. They say Amway IBO’s are the biggest violators of their “no soliciting” rule.

Back to the bullshit about teaching IBO’s to go out there and get customers. Like everything else to do with Amway its nothing but hot air. They never discussed anything about how to go out there and get customers other than a vague description of the people the IBO’s should be targeting - single mothers and people in debt. No helpful advice on how to convince these people who can least afford it to spend money chasing Amway dreams of riches.

Normally when someone teaches you to do something there are step by step instructions. Its like learning to drive a car. You don’t just go out and get a car, get in, and start driving without instructions. Well I guess you could but the results would likely be disastrous.

Just like Amway!

There are no instructions on how to recruit an Amway prospect other than get out there and lie to them. Don’t tell them it has anything to do with Amway just tell them its an awesome business opportunity and you’ll get rich working part time in the next 2 to 5 years. Lie to them. Give them any line you can think of to trick them into getting to an Amway meeting and the cult leader will do the rest of the work for you at convincing them to sign up.

Does Walmart have to lie to get customers to come into the store? Does Starbucks have to lie to get customers? Does Wendy’s have to lie to get customers?

Offer a product that people want, don’t rip them off, and the customers will come. You don’t have to go out and hunt them down. That’s the difference between a legitimate business and a scam.

The asshole Emerald never did tell us how to go out there and get customers but he did teach us a lot about bringing misery to people’s lives.


  1. Wouldnt be a good idea to get customers anyways. Cause I cant stand the thought of having people i meet or know overpay for junk.

  2. Colin - that's what I had trouble with. I could not in good conscience recruit others to join a business that would cause them financial and emotional distress or force people we know to become customers and overpay for Amway shit that was usually worse than their generic competitors.

  3. Anna, I remember saying at a meeting that money isnt everything. Had my upline & others trash me infront of others. They'd say the same crap like you go to work for the money and if you truly enjoy it you'd volunteer or do it for free. I cant be pretending or telling people this scam is great when i dont believe in anything they do.

  4. Colin! That's sacrilege when you can't say money isn't everything to those Amway IBO's! Money is their god!

    Yeah we heard the same bullshit about how can you say you like your job if you're not willing to work there for free. Pompous bastards don't think people have bills to pay? No mortgage?

    Oh yeah I forgot. Their strategy is to run your debt through the roof, skip mortgage payments, do what you have to do to pay homage to the Amway gods and then declare bankruptcy and have your house foreclosed on. Where are your Amway friends when all this happens? Nowhere to be found....

  5. I can make more money having a marijuana grow up like some guys i know from highschool. Within a few years they owned homes and had 6 figures in the bank. But there are things i wont do for money. Same with selling the amscam which is almost the same to me as having a growop. Cant stand the idea of ripping people off or lying for a living.

  6. The people with the marijuana grow ops are making more money than Amway IBOs!

    Aside from the income these 2 groups of people are exactly the same. They exist only to bring misery to others and the people who love them.

  7. I recently wrote about signs of an Ambot:

  8. That's a good article Joe. My husband displayed all those signs and much worse too.

  9. With havin so much content and articles do you
    ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?

    My website has a lot of completely unique content I've either
    written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet
    without my permission. Do you know any ways to help prevent
    content from being ripped off? I'd definitely
    appreciate it.

    Feel free to visit my weblog double glazing


Comments are moderated but we publish just about everything. Even brainwashed ambots who show up here to accuse us of not trying hard enough and that we are lazy, quitters, negative, unchristian dreamstealers. Like we haven’t heard that Amspeak abuse from the assholes in our upline!

If your comment didn’t get published it could be one of these reasons:
1. Is it the weekend? We don’t moderate comments on weekends. Maybe not every day during the week either. Patience.
2. Racist/bigoted comments? Take that shit somewhere else.
3. Naming names? Public figures like politicians and actors and people known in Amway are probably OK – the owners, Diamonds with CDs or who speak at functions, people in Amway’s publicity department who write press releases and blogs. Its humiliating for people to admit their association with Amway so respect their privacy if they’re not out there telling everyone about the love of their life.
4. Gossip that serves no purpose. There are other places to dish about what Diamonds are having affairs or guessing why they’re getting divorced. If you absolutely must share that here – don’t name names. I get too many nosy ambots searching for this. Lets not help them find this shit.
5. Posting something creepy anonymously and we can’t track your location because you’re on a mobile device or using hide my ass or some other proxy. I attracted an obsessed fan and one of my blog administrators attracted a cyberstalker. Lets keep it safe for everyone. Anonymous is OK. Creepy anonymous and hiding – go fuck yourselves!
6. Posting something that serves no purpose other than to cause fighting.
7. Posting bullshit Amway propaganda. We might publish that comment to make fun of you. Otherwise take your agenda somewhere else. Not interested.
8. Notice how this blog is written in English? That's our language so keep your comments in English too. If you leave a comment written in another language then we either have to use Google translate to put it into English so everyone can understand what you wrote or we can hit the Delete button. Guess which one is easier for us to do?
9. We suspect you're a troublemaking Amway asshole.
10. Your comment got caught in the spam filter. Gets checked occasionally. We’ll get to you eventually and approve it as long as it really isn’t spam.
