Origin of Network Marketing

Origin of Network Marketing


The network marketing business started during 1940s. A company named “California Vitamins” started the network marketing business where many representatives were selling small quantities of sales and earning profits. This company found out that most of the customers were from families and friends of sales representatives who were able to impress them with the products of the company.

In 1959 Richard De Vos and Jay Van Andel founded another networking company Amway which meant “The American Way”. From the first it used network marketing business concepts. It has been more than 50 years that it is operating and now it is a well established company. It is operating in almost more than 90 countries all over the world with more than 3 million business marketers.
