Why do MLM Companies Require Distributors to Use Replicated Websites Rather than Distributor-Created Websites?


Many companies require their consultants to use replicated websites because they are rightfully concerned about unauthorized medical and earnings claims as well as confusion in the search engines. Therefore, many leading companies provide authorized replicated websites to distributors and prohibit individual-created websites.

There are three primary reasons for this, which include:

1. To avoid unauthorized medical and earnings claims

2. To assert control over the company’s trademark

3. And, to avoid distributor websites competing against the primary company website in a way that the company website gets lost or is displaced from the top of search results for the company or its products.
