Best Practices Message- July

July 01, 2017

With your Amway Independent Business, you’re in a business of your own, but you are never alone.

Your Upline, Amway Corporation and the IBOAI are here to assist you with what you need to help you succeed.

For many – especially those IBOs whose background is not in business – an important key to success is the use of professional development resources.

These resources, known as Business Support Materials (BSM), are helpful tools for providing optional training and motivation to IBOs,

an important part of any sales-driven organization.


Amway, together with IBO leaders, is committed to making sure that every IBO has access to BSM that reflect the values of Amway and your Upline:

Partnership, Integrity, Personal Worth, Achievement, Personal Responsibility, and Free Enterprise. Best Practices ensure that BSM are offered appropriately to IBOs.

Along with Amway, there are Approved Providers of Business Support Materials. This is to ensure that all BSM comply with quality assurance standards (QAS).

It is important to remember that purchasing BSM or tickets to educational events is always optional and must be positioned as such. Only registered IBOs may purchase BSM,

and no one may state or imply that buying BSM or attending an event is required to become an IBO or to be successful as an IBO.


To allow IBOs to work on building successful Businesses with BSM without risk, Amway requires sellers of BSM to maintain a buy-back policy.

Buyers of BSM are entitled to 180-day buy-back from the seller of BSM if they are not satisfied with their purchase.

Those who buy tickets to functions have a 30-day satisfaction guarantee on the purchase price of the ticket.


IBOs in their first 90 days may return all BSM purchased in any form, including meeting tickets,

with proof of purchase, for a full refund of the price paid for each BSM.  It should always be made clear that use of these resources do not guarantee success.

What worked for one person may – or may not – work for another. No one ever built a successful business without putting in time and effort.  For those who are committed

to putting the time and energy in their Amway Independent Business, BSM can be important resources to help build a balanced, successful business and attaining goals.
