I choose to review Advocare because it is one of the biggest and fastest growing network marketing companies. Currently, Advocare is enjoying a new surge in popularity. Does this mean that Advocare is a good company to join or not? Let’s find out.



If you are thinking about joining this company, you should be reading as many Advocare reviews as you can find. Be sure that the reviews you read are not written by current members of the Advocare opportunity. They are just there to try to recruit you into the business and may not give you a fair and unbiased review. They will be there to try to “sell” you their business.



My review of Advocare will be an fair, accurate and an independent review. I am not, nor have I ever been a distributor of Advocare products or their business opportunity.

Advocare reviews - the company and its history



Advocare was founded by Charles Ragus, in 1993. The former pro football player, unfortunately, passed away in 2001. He was just 58 years old. Later, in 2007, Richard Wright was brought in to be the President and CEO of the company. He still holds those positions with the company.



Their headquarters is located in Plano, Texas.



As of 2010, it is reported that Advocare had, approximately, 60,000 “active” distributors. “Active” is being defined as any distributor who is receiving a check from the company. Bonus checks are not counted as a check from the company.



Advocare is considered to be in the health and wellness niche. They are selling products that are in the following categories, weight management, nutritional supplements, sports nutrition and personal care.



They have been in business for 21 years. They have made it through the critical first 5 years of business. Most network marketing companies that fail, will fail in their fist 5 years of business.



Their annual sales are estimated to be nearly $400,000,000.



Advocare reviews – their Better Business Bureau rating

I have checked their better Business Bureau rating. Advocare has an A rating. This meets my standards as a good company.



Please keep in mind that this rating is derived from several criteria, including the complaints that the company has gotten and how well they are able to resolve these problems.

Advocare reviews – their products



They have over 70 different product.



The retail prices range from $20.00 for their breathe spray, Nice Ice to $190.00, for their 24 Day Challenge Bundle.



If you would like to see their products and pricing you can go to their site. Advocare’s products. There is a list of product categories in the left sidebar.



I like to advise anyone who is thinking about joining any network marketing company to try out the products before they make a final decision. You can contact a distributor to buy from them or you can go to Amazon and find a product there. I’d suggest comparing the retail price from the Advocare site to those prices listed on Amazon. You may find someone offering a discount on Amazon. You can find many Advocare products review on Amazon.

There is also an annual renewal fee of $50.00. Apparently, the company does not require a distributor to be on an autoship program.



They do offer discounts for their distributors. A distributor gets a 20% discount and an Advisor gets a 40% discount.



Advocare reviews – the compensation plan



There are 12 different levels in the Advocare compensation plan. You join as a distributor and you can work your way up to Double Diamond.



I found this, a 26 page pdf document, about Advocare’s policies. In it, you will find 10 pages that are dedicated to their compensation plan. They are the last 10 pages of the document. Advocare’s Compensation Plan.

My criteria for a company’s compensation plan is that it should be easily understood. If it is too complex to understand by anyone, then it is possible that you would never feel comfortable with how the company pays you.

According to their 2013 IDS, the average “active” distributor earns $1708.08 per year. If you do the math, you will find that $1708.00 per year is just $142.00 per month.



To their credit, slightly more than 3% of Advocare’s “active” distributors are earning $3,000.00 per month or more.



There are 5.5% who are earning about $1,000 per month. At least they are profitable!

They look like one of the better network marketing out there.
