The ‘New’ Shaklee International would be a more fitting name.

“Founded in 1956, Shaklee Corporation, headquartered in Pleasanton, California, is recognized as an industry pioneer and a trusted name in health and wellness.
Shaklee is a respected leader in the direct selling industry, with product lines including nutritional supplements, personal care and household products as well as home water treatment and air purification systems. Shaklee products reflect the company’s commitment to the highest quality, service and customer satisfaction, backed by a 100% guarantee.” —Shaklee web site

Shaklee Markets: United States, Canada, Mexico, Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan, China and Japan. Next to open: India.

Ownership: In 1989 Shaklee was purchased by Japanese Pharmaceutical giant Yamanouchi Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.   The company was sold again to Roger Barnett and his family in May 2004.

Revenue: According to Direct Selling News, Shaklee worldwide revenues in 2012 had grown to $650 million, up from $515 million in 2011.

Shaklee Compensation Plan: Modernized in 2010, the Shaklee comp plan is now a “unit based generational hybrid.”

Depending on rank in the plan, it pays approximately 5% up to 6 generations deep with an additional differential  bonus up to 8% on all volume to Infinity.

More importantly for most Shaklee “Brand Partners,” now Shaklee’s fast start program may be the easiest to earn in the industry and totals $34,000 in additional bonuses in the first 15 months, another $50,000, for achieving specific ranks in your first 3 years. Car bonuses begin at only 5000 per month in volume. Other incentives include International Trips.

DSN ranking of MLM companies based on 2013 revenues is out. Strangely Shaklee is not in the list. Based on 2012 revenue, it was ranked #19 in 2013 DSN ranking. Any idea why?
