Some Numbers to Ponder

In our earlier post we mentioned that Amway has approximately 80,000 IBO's in Australia and New Zealand today. Considering that New Zealand has approx one-fifth of the population of Australia, we could estimate that the number of IBO's in Australia are about 65,000.

Have you wondered how many of those IBO's have made it to the desired pin levels where the real money starts to kick in, that being Platinum, Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire and the coveted Diamond and above levels? The answer is found in a somewhat surprising place which is very accessible to the public, in fact just about every household has access to it. It's the Phonebook.

In Australia, all IBO's who are Platinum and above are listed in the White Pages under "Amway of Australia". Take a look for yourself and see how many IBO's there are listed in your area code. Are you surprised? We sure were. So you now know how many there are in your area, does it make you ponder as to how many there are Australia wide?

The answer is 291. No, that's not a typo. Out of an estimated 65,000 IBO's in Australia, there are currently 291 Platinums and above listed. That equates to 0.45%.

We will leave you to draw your own conclusions as to what these numbers mean.

Not all Platinums and above are listed, it's their choice.

having said that, probably not too far off, since a Platinum type volume is generally generated by a group of around 100-200 people.

It's still dismal. And considering that the percentage was based on current IBO numbers and not the total number of IBO's who have ever been in the business for the last 24 years...for in that case the percentage drops to a truly laughable figure, if you call a decimal point and at least four zero's a figure.
