The Advocare press release:
AdvoCare International announces a revision of its business model from multi-level marketing to a direct-to-consumer and single-level marketing compensation plan.
AdvoCare has been in confidential talks with the Federal Trade Commission about the AdvoCare business model and how AdvoCare compensates its Distributors. The planned change will impact Distributors who have participated in the multi-level aspect of the business. Those who currently sell only to customers will not be impacted and there will be no impact on Preferred Customers or retail customers’ ability to purchase products.
“Over the years, we have made many changes to the AdvoCare policies as the regulatory environment has shifted. Based on recent discussions, it became clear that this change is the only viable option,”
says Patrick Wright, AdvoCare’s Chief Executive Officer.
“Regardless of the model, we remain steadfastly committed to providing our high-quality nutritional products to our loyal customers who are seeking to live healthier lives. We stand behind the integrity and values of this company and will continue to work with our dedicated Distributors to provide the best customer service to ensure AdvoCare products are available for decades to come.”
The company gave notice to its more than 100,000 Distributors on May 17 that, effective July 17, 2019, AdvoCare will revise the business model to a single-level distribution model, paying compensation based solely on sales to direct customers.
The Retail and Preferred Customer programs will remain intact with discounts ranging from 20 – 40 percent. This new business model will allow the company to explore new and innovative ways to bring their premium products to market.
“AdvoCare Distributors have been helping change lives since its founding in 1993, by providing premium wellness products to those looking to reach new health and fitness goals – and that will not change,” says AdvoCare’s former CEO and current Chairman of the Board Reid Ward. “We’re proud of the growth of our Preferred Customer program we launched in 2016, which has grown to almost 400,000 discount customers. We look forward to reaching even more customers with a new business model.”

Indeed a sad day as a great company, a company that built champions terminated its distributors. I’ve had that happen to me before where a company closed doors or altered my financial retirement dreams. It’s part of a journey we walk. When the dust settles, and you realize you still have dreams and have the ability to pursue them…because its all about people, feel free to reach out to me. I’m suggesting a company that has leadership with the right motives. A true family culture. Led by a man and woman who have integrity, and are building a company that is for distributors, not against them.
When you are ready, take a look at this dynamic,fast-growing company…that is a distributors company. Without a doubt, the best network marketing comp plan today https://valentus.com/skyrocket I am deeply sorry for your loss.. Take care. DK (250)215-6746
