Forever Living Products, popularly known as FLP business is one of the best ways to make money online in Nigeria recently. So today, I’ll be showing you how to build a successful internet business with FLP right here in Nigeria. But before we dive in, let’s take a look at the meaning of FLP (Forever Living Products) itself.
Forever Living Products International, Inc., FLP for short, is an American based multi-level marketing (MLM) company founded in 1978 by Rex Maughan in Scottsdale, Arizona, United States. The company manufactures and sells Aloe Vera-based drinks and bee-derived cosmetics, nutritional supplements and personal care products. Currently, the company operates in 170 countries of the world and is generally acclaimed as one of the largest MLM companies worldwide. FLP came to Nigeria in 2001 and in 2014, Nigeria was awarded the third largest distributor of FLP products worldwide.
Now I know what you’re thinking, MLM?? Network Marketing?? Not me! Chill out, before you finish flipping out, allow me to enlighten you a bit more.
With MLM, you get to make a lot of money by building a team of marketers and distributors while you get to make some profit from them whenever they make sales. FLP has a different business model because it’s actually a normally profitable business plus network marketing. So if you want, you can totally ignore the MLM business part of FLP and just focus on retail sales. With this, you can establish a successful business that can change your life forever.
Before we go any further, maybe you’re asking yourself, why FLP?? I mean there are thousands of MLM companies out there so why the hype about FLP?? Stay with me while I show you why 10 million distributors around the world (in over 170 countries) chose Forever Living Products.
Why FLP Business Is Profitable And Worth The Try
#1 FLP Satisfies Longevity
Don’t just jump at every new business opportunity on the block. Does the business have a sustainable business model and how long has it been in existence?? Have they had any run-ins with the law and how?? These are a few of the questions you want to ask yourself and get answers to before you invest your hard-earned cash into any business opportunity. Well, FLP business answers all these questions satisfactorily and since they’ve been in business for 38 years, they must be doing something right.
#2 FLP Has High-Quality Products
This is the defining quality of any MLM company. Without a range of high-quality products that solve the problems of consumers, the company won’t last long. For a company that has existed for 38 years and is still growing bigger today, I think FLP has a good claim to that. FLP has hundreds of tested and proven products that span a variety of health and wellness niches such as Diabetes, Fibroid, Hair loss, Men’s Health, Weight Loss and much more. An icing on the cake, all their products are NAFDAC certified.
#3 FLP Has A Proven Financial Stability
Steady solid growth is the sign of a good MLM company. Fortunately FLP business exhibits these qualities.
Time’s a-wasting so let’s run through a few other admirable qualities of FLP business and move onto the real money making (I know right??).
#4 FLP Business Has Multiple Income Opportunities
#5 FLP Offers Consumable Products
#6 FLP Offers An Extensive Support Network
#7 FLP Has An International Presence
Now that we’re done with those exhausting stories, how exactly do you make money with FLP??
Making Money With FLP Retail Business
Like I said earlier, FLP has a separate business model that allows you to become a distributor and make steady profits without becoming involved in network marketing. FLP has a section called the Forever Business Owner (FBO), which allows you to buy products from the company at wholesale prices and resell them at retail prices making as much as a 30% profit on each sale.
The good news is that you don’t even have to do any multi-level network marketing or go through any referral stress. Again, I dare to remind you that while your opportunities are literally limitless with this company, you won’t become a millionaire overnight and you won’t become anything at all if you don’t work hard with dedication and focus. Treat this like a real business (because it is), not a side hustle and the sky is the limit for you.
Often times, you’ll be using digital media advertising, majorly Facebook ads, to sell these hot-selling FLP products. It is however quite important to note that FLP products sell fast because these products work health magics without no side effects – there are many testimonies to this effect.
There are also many platforms that you can use to advertise your FLP products, Nairaland is a good option for Nigerians, you can check how to advertise your business on Nairaland. Meanwhile, Facebook Ads has proven to be the best and the cheapest in recent time. There are over 20 million Nigerians on Facebook. What if you could reach just 5% of this demography with a product that has #10,000 profit (or more) per sale?? Yeah, I can see you’re doing the math. Then you get a courier service to deliver your products to your customers anywhere in Nigeria and voila, you’re in business. There are tons of courier services in Nigeria, you can check them out and pick your best.d

Team Building In The FLP Business
So you already have everything you need to build a successful internet business (or so you think). The bad news is, you have to keep working for the rest of your life (as long as you want to keep making money). If you want to build a residual income i.e. a business that keeps making you money after you stop working, then you have to go a step further and build a team of marketers. This way, you make money even if you don’t sell any product. To do this you have to become a marketer.
Prior to this time, you were a salesman. I know people think being a network marketer and convincing people to invest in any business opportunity is hard but that’s because you’ve been doing it wrong. The approach that many people take is to start telling people stories even before they show them the company’s compensation plan. They won’t believe these stories (I wouldn’t either) because our brains are hardwired to disbelief anything that makes us lose money (caveman mentality; FOOD).
The correct approach is to send them a PowerPoint presentation obtained from your sponsors on the company’s compensation plan and how they can benefit from it, then let them come to you (because they want to know more). You have to believe in your product because you can’t market what you don’t believe in and people can unconsciously sense this from you. Believe in your products, show people how your company is poised to help them, position yourself as a leader and be willing to help people succeed. These are all the qualities you need to build your own network of marketers and that is where the real money is.
Do not make the mistake that many people make and dive headfirst into building your network with any solid network plan. Before you start building your network, sit down to plan your network. You may decide to build your network in powers of 5, that means when you have five downlines, then you start helping your downlines to build their own five downlines and so on. Nobody has more than five direct downlines under them. This may look counter-intuitive but it actually lets you build a huge network that you can earn from. All in all, good business. You don’t have to copy this, but sit down and plan your network before you start building it.
Compensation Plans Of FLP Business
As with many MLM companies, FLP has lots of compensation plans in place to keep you smiling to the bank. There are about 9 ways to earn from the FLP company including, but not limited to, your retail profits, personal bonus (on the volume of products that you buy), volume bonus (on the volume of your network), leadership bonuses, etc. You also have the opportunity of getting a new car or a vacation trip courtesy of the company management.

And here we come to the end of our rambling on about making money with FLP business in Nigeria. A lot has been said and a lot more still needs to be said, however, this is not my autobiography so I will say no more and allow you to find out more yourself (you gotta work for it, you know??).
If you’re anything like me and you’re still asking yourself questions like, is this real?? And how much can I really make with this FLP opportunity?? Well, before I say a final goodbye, I want you to take a look at the success stories of these Nigerians about FLP and then you can decide for yourself if you still have a reason to stay behind.
DISCLAIMER: This is not a get rich quick scheme or overnight millionaire initiative. If you’re not ready to put in the hard work, dedication, and determination that it takes to succeed in the FLP business, you might as well turn back now.
