Ruby Ribbon Review (MLM or Pyramid Scheme Scam?)

Wirefree bras are widely used nowadays, including me. Studies show that using wirefree bras instead of underwire bras can lower the risk of having breast cancer. Another advantage is that it also prevents your breasts from sagging at an early age. Ruby Ribbon made a name for themselves by selling intimate wear like swimsuits, camis and demis, and also sportswear. They also have one product for men’s wear, dri-fit tees.

Ruby Ribbon was founded in 2011 by Anna Zornosa. “It all started with the impulse of wanting to create thousands of jobs for female entrepreneurs, that will allow them to have the same joy as I’ve had when starting businesses including my own business. I want it to do that at scale, for other women”, said Anna in one of her interviews. It is all about women empowerment and encouragement so that women like us can build confidence in the business industry.

She was a product of the 90’s when she started working with hi-tech publications that were covering the proliferation of the computer industry at that time. They don’t know what it is, but they know that something big will happen in the field of telecommunication. The big change that they didn’t expect to come is what we all have now, the internet. With the aid of technology and using the oldest model there is, direct selling, she came up with ways to make her ideals into reality. 

With thousands of women operating Ruby Ribbon businesses, from hair stylists, makeup artists, stay-at-home mothers, and even teachers who are preparing for their early retirements, the company has helped each and everyone grow as a person and even given them encouragement that even like us women can run and manage a business on our own. Before retiring, Anna handed over the baton to Clint McKinley as the new CEO of Ruby Ribbon in 2020.

To be part of Ruby Ribbon as their stylist, you need to buy 1 of the 4 starter kits that they offer. These kits cost ranges from $99 to $599. The differences of these kits vary with the number of Ruby Ribbons products included, but all have business tools and a personal replicated website that you can use to keep track and manage your business. The $599 kit also includes a $300 worth of credit that you can use to buy more products at Ruby Ribbon.

Retail commissions are basically the difference between the wholesale price and the retail price. Stylists can earn up to 40% commission. The lowest percentage that you can get is 20%, having a minimum requirement of $300 worth of PV in a span of 3 months. You don’t also need to keep an inventory since you can also earn commissions when customers buy products using your personal replicated website.

You can also earn by building and leading a team. You can earn 3% of sales commission on each of the stylists under your wing. The more you recruit, the more you will earn incentives. As a side hustle, it is not bad. You don’t need to get depressed and be problematic on how you will make a sale. If you haven’t achieved the minimum requirement as a retailer, then marketing is just not up your alley.

If you don’t want to be a stylist, there is another way for you to earn with Ruby Ribbon. You can host in-home parties, invite family, friends, coworkers or even neighbors so that you can demonstrate their products with a chance of making sales. Hostesses are then compensated corresponding to the total sales they made at the party. These may include gift coupons, product discounts on succeeding orders, free shipping or even access to exclusive offers.

Some bad reviews are linked with Ruby Ribbon and it is common with any apparel stores. You can’t really tell the actual size of any clothing product unless you see them upfront and try them. And that’s what the customers are complaining about. They delivered the wrong size then the customer will still shoulder the shipping fee back and forth just to receive the correct size they ordered. The only solution for this is to find a nearby Ruby Ribbon stylist yourself so you can pick the size that’s right for you.

Ruby Ribbon is not a scam, they’re a legit company that sells wirefree clothes products and their mission is simple, to support women with real comfort, confidence and opportunity, but is there really an opportunity in setups like this? Almost 99% of all MLM joiners lose money, according to the FTC. You can take up their mission as an encouragement for you to start your own business rather than joining them.
