Make Money With Amway Partner Stores (Without Being in Amway)

amway partner stores listThe Amway compensation plan has a number of ways in which you can earn income, bonuses and incentives.

The main way is to sell to consumers Amway branded products such as Nutrilite supplements, Artistry beauty supplies, XS energy drinks, eSpring, and others where you will earn profit through retail markup and rewarded bonuses on all your sales point values.

Another way is to use the Amway Partner Stores. Designed more as a way for distributors to save money by making their purchases through these partner stores, IBO’s can also get friends and family to purchase through partner stores and make money from the point values.

This isn’t as rewarding as selling the main Amway products but in this article, I’m going to show you how you can make money with these same Amway Partner Stores and you don’t even have to be an Amway rep to make this work.

This is a legitimate way to make money that ordinary people including myself have used to build businesses and earn full time incomes from home.


Supplementing MLM Income with Affiliate Programs


Scroll to the bottom of most shopping website online and you’ll find a link called “Affiliate Program” or “Become an Affiliate”.

These websites allow anyone to make money by sending them traffic or visitors typically through your own website. Affiliate programs are free to join so they’re a popular way for stay-at-home moms, college students, job seekers, retirees and others looking for extra income to make money.

As a network marketer, you can also use affiliate programs to supplement your MLM income. Or as an alternative to the MLM business model which can sometimes be very restrictive and slow.

With affiliate marketing, there is no team building and there isn’t any face-to-face selling, which is what attracted me to it over 10 years ago. It was much easier to make progress than Amway and getting involved was much more rewarding.

There are so many more affiliate programs available than just what’s regarded to any IBO as Amway Partner Stores and after this article, you might want to explore this opportunity way beyond the list I’m going to give you here.


Amway Partner Store List + Affiliate Opportunity


So how do you make money with Amway Partner Stores?

First I’m going to give you a list of the current partner stores. Not all of them are listed here – just the ones that have affiliate programs (over 90% of them anyway).

I’ve also included some info like the general category (from the Amway Partner Store website), where you can find the affiliate program (usually an affiliate network), a link to the affiliate program page of the partner store website and how much the store pays in commissions.

In some cases, I’ve also included a brief idea about how you can use that partner store to earn money.

How To Make Money With Amway Partner Stores


Once you’ve chosen to do affiliate marketing and promote the programs listed above, you no longer have to refer to them as partner stores simply because you’re not doing this for Amway.

Also, you’ll then have a lot more choices as there are possibly hundred of thousands of affiliate programs available on the internet for you to promote.

Some of them pay way more than these stores. It’s not uncommon to find a program paying $100 per sale or even 50 – 75% commissions.

This opportunity is so big that you can choose to sell anything from digital products, services, memberships to physical everyday items.

I’ve included with some of the stores above an idea on how you can go about earning with a particular store. However, you can come up with other ideas by using a simple formula.

  1. Choose a store.
  2. Define the topic or first find a product and define customer interest.
  3. Build a website (simpler than you think – see below)
  4. Write content to attract visitors (again simpler than you think – see below)
  5. Add affiliate links to make money

This is the basic formula for making money with affiliate programs online and one you can use to make money with Amway’s Partner Stores.


The Right Training To Make It Work


WA course

I’ve always said that the biggest reason why people fail at network marketing is because they don’t get adequate marketing training.

How do you get involved with a marketing activity if you do not know how to market?

It’s the same with affiliate marketing. If you don’t know how to market, you’re likely to end up making a lot of mistakes that could end up with you quitting.

Fortunately, learning how to do affiliate marketing isn’t tough at all. The best thing is that you can earn money as you learn. All you need is the right affiliate marketing training.

If you’re going to learn how to make money with these partner stores then you need training that is simple, task-based and well structured so that you can follow the process progressing from beginner to advanced levels.

The training that I recommend, takes you by the hand and shows you how to build a website, how to write content that attracts people to your website and how to tie it all together to earn money.

This training is the same training that allowed me to quit Amway, start an affiliate marketing business and in 2009, quit my day job to do affiliate marketing full time.

Check out my review of Wealthy Affiliate and get a free starter membership to check out the training.
