Former Amway Distributor 1000 PV Pin Recognition Personal Story

I reached 1000 PV my third month in the Amway business. That was June 2002. I was affiliated with the World Wide Dream Builders line of sponsorship. My upline Diamond was Mike Popovich and my Platinum was Keith Gramprie. At the time, I was an Active Duty Army Officer stationed at Fort Carson, Colorado.

I don’t remember my exact statistics, but I think I had six personally sponsored IBOs and 16 total IBOs in my group when I reached the 1,000 PV Pin. Of those six personally sponsored IBOs, two had 100 PV or higher. My personal PV was 300 to 400.

When I got my first bonus check, it was around $400. After I paid my downline distributors their cut, my commission was around $300. Even though it wasn’t a large amount of money, I was still very excited about the potential of my Amway business. I knew that it I kept focusing on retailing and recruiting, I would make even more money. Simply put, my belief level in the business was at an all time high.

For the next two years, I continued to build my Amway business. Eventually, I flattened out around 3,000-4,000 PV. I maintained that level for approximately 12 months. Shortly thereafter, my group vanished and my momentum died. It wasn’t too long after my group quit that I quit. Although I never reached Platinum, I’m proud of my accomplishments during my time in the Amway business.

What Others Are Saying

“I just reached 1000 PV yesterday. It was my second month in Amway. I have not done much for my group or my own personal business yet, though. I plan on getting a retail base and sponsoring some people who I think will be good for the business this month though, and hopefully my group will keep up the momentum we’ve had. I wonder what my check will look like!” ~ James, Amway distributor

“I am a former Amway distributor.  I spent 11 months in the business.  I reached 1000 PV in my first month.  I sponsored eight people, two who were serious.  I also had a couple personal customers and did about 150 PV personal use.  My first check was for $741.  I was excited. Within my first 11 months I built up to 6,000 PV, but still had a negative cash flow in my business.  At that point I decided to quit.” ~ Tony, Former Amway distributor

Final Thoughts

Very few people ever hit 1,000 PV in the Amway business.  It’s by no means a huge milestone, but it is the first important pin advancement as I see it.  If I was going to offer anyone advice on how to do it the right way, I would suggest that you sponsor approximately 10 distributors and have at least 10 personal retail customers.  In addition, keep a close eye on your business expenses and cash flow.  Don’t “buy your way” into the pin.  Be smart with your money.

On a side note, I’m trying to reach out to former and current Amway distributors. If you ever reached 1000 PV in Amway, I’d love to hear your personal story. How many IBOs did you sponsor? How big was your group?  How big was your bonus check? Simply leave a comment below to share your thoughts.

  1. I don’t have a personal experience reaching the 1000Pin. I spent about 12 months in the business affiliated with WWDB and never made more than $80 in a month, that included a fast track bonus.

    My upline made a lost the 1000 PV pin several times over about 30-months. It was hard to watch how much he struggled and how hard he tried.

    My observation and experience is that people leave quicker than you can recruit. Our organization also had a philosophy of help your upline achieve their goal first and then they can focus on you.

    The problem is every time they achieved a goal ex: Double Eagle then they want to focus on Double Eagle Ruby and never actually invested downline outside of wanting us to increase our spending.

    1. Dawn,

      That is unfortunate that happened! Sometimes you have a really great leader or team member who does whatever they need to do to succeed but the comp plan is to difficult. Then of course you have a good one but can’t find people who want to work. I feel blessed that our business has a great comp plan that I found different from many, as well as leaders willing to help you succeed. That combination plus products of course makes for a really good company. I believe that is where many companies fail is being able to possess at least those three values. I hope you and your friend has found a business to call home.

  2. My wife and I just went 1000 last month. We have went much slower than the comments I have seen here. It took us about 9 months to go 1000, but we’ve faced ALOT of setbacks. Regardless, we have stuck it out and we are gaining momentum now. It felt good to go 1000, but our eyes are now set higher, as 1000 is the believers pin and we believe we will reach much further.
