    It Works marketing...anyone know?

    Hi there,

    I recently joined it works marketing as a distributor. I thought i could make some money from home. Does anyone know of this company and have any experience with it? They market the ultimate body applicator as a wrap that will cause inch loss in 45 mins. I have heard many people say it works and it is a big success. However, i have used it twice without any results. So i am disappointed and maybe feeling a bit embarassed that i fell for a lie. How can companies get away with selling products that don't actually work? I don't understand that.
    Let me know if anybody has had success with their program of products.

    Inch of your stomach is quite a few pounds. Losing more than 2 -3 pounds a week, for none-obese adults, is considered very dangerous.

    How can companies get away with selling products that don't actually work? I don't understand that.
    Welcome to internet/MLM/pyramid marketing. Most of the products sold those ways do not work or do not work as advertised. It is all about hype and recruiting and product is just an afterthought.

    Hi Karen,

    I have been a health and weight loss coach and consultant for over 12 years and I have tried it all! A holistic practitioner introduced the Ultimate Body Applicator to me and I didn't believe it was possible either. However, I finally tried it after I saw mutual friends getting dramatic results and it worked! Since then I have recommended it to hundreds of people with great results. A few of my friends did not get results, but they had serious health issues that needed to be addressed first before their weight issues. Since the product detoxes the body as part of the process, that could be an issue. It is possible that you are one of the few that will not get results. However, in my experience there are a lot of things you can do to improve your chances of results. If you want to discuss it further to see if I can help you, you are welcome to contact me. Obviously, I have nothing to gain by helping you since you are not my distributor or customer. But I am very passionate about helping people and I am very passionate about It Works.

    I have also been in direct sales and network marketing for many years and I have had tremendous success sharing valuable products with my clients and customers. I am also a Certified Network Marketing Success Coach. So not every company is a scam just because someone does not find success with the product or the business. For example, I tried to sell long distance once as a favor to a friend. I didn't make a dime and lost all my money. That does not mean it was a scam. My friends all made a lot of money and a lot of people are still in it and still making money. It just wasn't my passion so I couldn't promote it with enthusiasm like they did. That is why when I coach someone who is looking for a business opportunity, my first advice is to find a product that they personally love and can passionately share with others.

    So let me know if I can help.

    Michelle

    P.S. By the way, this product is a $300 spa treatment in the most exclusive spas and medi-spas in Europe and the Emmys & Oscars asked the company to bring it to the celebrity gift suites so it really is not a scam.

    In answering how companies can get away with these scams. Alot of the time, technically they aren't doing anything wrong.

    All they are doing is selling terrible quality products, that are completely over priced, but they are marketed to a tea.

    Thanks to the internet they are able to shove these offers right in our faces and it makes it very hard to resist. Don't feel a fool, you just got a little smarter from this experience! :)

    :judges: I want to preface my comments by saying there are no products on the market today that are designed to work for everyone.

    With that said, I've used the product you're asking about since April of this year, and have gotten really good results. I actually use the applicators and the defining gel. There are many reasons people don't see inch loss right away (smokers, certain body oils and soaps may clog your pores, etc).

    This is not water loss. This product actually detoxifies, tones & tightens the skin and typically last 2-6 months. Of course, if you change your diet (eat healther) and exercise the results can last a lot longer.

    I was really skeptical, as I have tried many things, and been with several MLM companies and none of them worked. I refused to be scammed, and would not order the products until I actually saw results for myself.

    I experienced a 2 inch loss on my tummy after one application and was convinced that I might be on to something.

    I am not an authority on these products. I'm just telling you what has worked for me.

    My suggestion is that get with your upline, he/she may be able to explain the products to you in more detail. Also there is a money back guarantee, so if it's not working for you, you should be able to send it back.

    I hope this helps. :spin2:

    Re: It Works marketing...anyone know?

    I was skeptical too before I tried these wraps so I ordered one to try.

    Well, the first time I wrapped I lost 3/4 inch from my stomach. I was so excited so I signed up to be a distributor.

    As soon as I got my kit I wrapped again and this time I lost another 2 1/4 inches from my stomach area: One inch from my upper abs, one inch from the middle and 1/4 inch from my lower pooch.

    I didnt believe it until I tried it and now I can tell you that it definitely works. I have never seen anything like this. I have tried everything to get rid of the extra fat around my middle since having my daughter but nothing seemed to work. I would lose a few pounds but it would come off the areas I didnt want it to come off, like my butt, but the fat on my stomach area would not budge.

    With this product you can actually lose inches on those problem areas that you want to get rid of.

    The inch loss is NOT water loss but actually fat loss. The herbal ingredients work to flush out the toxins and actually shrink the fat cells. The results are immediate and cumulative.

    If you would like any other information about our ultimate applicators or any of our other cutting edge health and weight loss products or would like to become a distributor and make a great income working from home I would be happy to speak with you!

    :rotz::errr:OMG!! I cannot get over this!! There is no way at all that it can do anything but MAYBE tighten skin. The only way to lose meaningful body fat is to burn more calories than you consume. I know this first hand. I lost 100+ pounds 18 years ago and have kept it off with good old fashioned healthy eating and exercise. In addition, the most important weight most of us need to lose visceral fat (the fat stored BEHIND our abdominal muscles). This is the fat that causes disease. This patch would not touch this. As a culture, we are way too focused on our looks. We need to exercise and eat healthy to preserve our individual health and vitality. We owe it to our families (especially the generations that follow us to not burden them with our health issues later in life) and our environment. No silly patch is going to touch a real, unhealthy weight issue.

    I am a distributor for It Works also and it is not a scam...I have been a distributor for 3 weeks now and have wrapped over 20 people and EVERYONE has lost between 3-6 inches. They are a detox so water needs to be drank with them!! That would be the only reason I could think of as to why this isn't working for you! Happy Wrapping!! I personally have done 1 wrap and lost 6 inches!

    Re: It Works marketing...anyone know?

    Hi,

    I know this is a little late for a response. Nearly 5 years ago, I did It Works Marketing when I had a salon that specialized in body wraps and health-related products.

    The business wasn't profitable and I eventually had to close it. However, during that time, I had a lot of repeat, very happy clients that used the It Works products. (That part was profitable, by the way, and helped me hang on to my business a couple years longer.) Sadly, I let the It Works business end when I ended my salon.

    While deciding on another stream of income, I looked back at my life to see what I was truly successful at with the least amount of effort (as my time is very limited). Hands down, It Works was above anything else I've ever done.

    My clients loved it and had great results. I was making great money with it. So, I am proud to say, I have signed up again as a distributor for It Works.

    I'd like to add a comment about some of the statements made.

    William made some pretty blanket statements about quality of product. Like anything, there are good and bad products out there. He obviously didn't take the time to research the products within this company before making his claims.

    LivLovesFitness makes great points. You can't reach your goal weight and a healthy lifestyle without proper eating and exercising.

    If you take the time to learn about It Works!, no where will you see that this is a quick fix in place of healthy eating and exercise. On the contrary, It Works! recognized in the time I was gone that they needed to provide support for people wanting to make those changes in their lives and added FitWorks, a program that supports healthy eating and exercise.

    I know it is difficult to understand how this works. But it does. I had a client that went from a size 18+ to a 6 or 8 in less than 6 months. She had dieted and exercised for the previous 6 months and had only achieved losing a pant size and less than 10 pounds. The second 6 months, the only thing she did differently, was that she religiously used the applicators, the contour gel, the fat fighters and if I remember right, the vitamins. (I'm positive about the first three.) She needed help to get past her situation. It Works did that for her. And it did it for a lot of others as well. It is not a scam. It is an MLM (no apologies needed). The compensation plan is great. The owners of the company are great. The products are Unique and the highest of quality. That's why I'm coming back.

    Well I can tell you that what you just wrote is complete tripe.

    Whether a wrap works temporarily I could probably buy into. Its also good only for water weight loss.

    Please don't just spout rubbish. If you think it works for you - that's great - for you. But weight loss is achieved by diet and exercise, not by "wraps". UNless you think the manufacturers managed to repeal the laws of physics.

    good luck on trying to convince this bunch of "magical thinkers" . You are correct and they are trying to make money. They aint about to thank you for that.

    Re: It Works marketing...anyone know?

    It has now been 48 hrs since I used the It works body applicator. This is my first time using it. I was trying to target my stomach area and hoping to lose inches , but instead my stomach is now bloated and my face is breaking out for some odd reason. My face never breaks out, so this is very strange to me. I ordered a 4 pack of this product , but I'm wondering if it is even worth it to do a 2ns applicator after 72 hours. I cetainly don't want to keep getting even more bloated. This is just very disapointing!!!

    Re: It Works marketing...anyone know?

    Hi Ready4theBeach,

    I will give you my two cents worth. My first recommendation is to contact It works to talk with their product coach either via phone or email. She can answer your questions probably to more extent than I can.

    I used to own a Spa that specialized in helping my clients Detox (not from addictions). I added It Works to my tools. It was the most popular option with my clients. I decided to close my Spa in 2004 and walked away from everything at that time.

    I started again with It Works products this February because I wanted an additional stream of income and looked back in my life and asked three questions:

    1. What have I done that helped people I really enjoyed?
    2. What have I done that I made a good income from?
    3. What have I done that didn't take too much time?
    I expected three different answers. But all three came up It Works. So here I am. (Now you know where I am coming from.)

    Now, to respond to your experience:

    When I first added this, I had a a few people experience the bloating. At first, I have to admit, I freaked! But then I started seeing a trend. Within the next 24-72 hours, they would see really good results.
    Because of my experience and background, I began to refer to this as a "toxic bloat." (This is not coming from It Works.) It usually, (not always), happened when people hadn't had enough water, had a slow digestive system, or had a really bad diet, (including alcohol). Some of the people who bloated the most, who saw the most results were some younger women who liked to party!!!


    So here's my suggestion. Make sure you drink plenty of water and go for a walk or exercise. This will help your lymphatic system. This will help you flush (literally) that which is causing the bloating. Don't exercise during the application as your sweat will block the product from penetrating.

    [FONT='Verdana','sans-serif']So here's my suggestion. Make sure you drink plenty of water and go for a walk or exercise. This will help your lymphatic system. This will help you flush (literally) that which is causing the bloating. Don't exercise during the application as your sweat will block the product from penetrating.[/font]

    But exercise or at least go for a walk before you apply the product. If you have a slow digestion, consider using the Regular product for a week or two prior to doing the next application. If you take a look at your diet and decide you donít have the best, try the Fat Fighter. I had a woman recently that didnít respond to the applicator after 3. But after we looked at her diet, she decided to try the fat blockers. She lost about 5 pounds over the next two weeks. It helped her realize that she wasnít eating well. We are working on what to do prior to her trying the applicator again.

    I will be the first to admit this isnít a One-Hit-Wonder miracle. It is a system. It DOES work! In all the time that I helped people using this line of products, only two people never responded to the applicators. Keep in mind that every personís body is different. Every Body will respond differently. There is no vitamin, cream, medication that will work 100% of the time on everyone and results will vary.

    If you work with the product coach, she can help steer you to what will help you the most. Just go to www.itworks.net and click on Product Coach.

    All the best,

    One more thing:

    (This is just a pet-peeve of mine.)

    MLMs are NOT pyramids. I see (way too often) that they are used in the same sentence: "internet/MLM/pyramid marketing"

    Pyramids are Illegal. MLMs, Direct Marketing, Network Marketing, and Legitimate Internet Marketing companies with Legitimate Products are not only LEGAL, but endorsed by some of the smartest entrepreneurs in our country:

    Warren Buffettbought an MLM. Donald Trump started one.
    Robert Kiyosaki said that if he had to make his fortune again, he would do it through an MLM.

    So please, please stop calling them Pyramids.

    Thank you.
