“It Works Global” – The ULTIMATE Review.
As you may or may not know, my name is Denise Walsh and I’m an independent distributor for It Works! Global & one of the first two members of the It Works Annual Million Dollar earner club.
Throughout the last 8 years I’ve worked with this company, I’ve been asked a LOT of questions— questions about my business, myself, and my success.
I know what it’s like looking into a new business and I know there can be literally hundreds of questions. So, my goal with this review was to literally tackle them all, and try to give someone a view of what this company, its products, the compensation plan, and my team are all about. I hope you enjoy!
I wanted to give an honest review of this company and its products– something that would be informative and unbiased for the people who were like me eight years ago–stuck in their current job, but skeptical of something new.
I know I can’t do that, though. I know I’m biased. But, then again, the business that made me biased is the same one that’s allowed my husband and I freedom from our 9-5 jobs, and to buy our dream home this year.
The point of this post, however, is not to list off my accomplishments or tell you why you should join this business. Instead, I want to tell you the facts. And then I want you to decide for yourself.
Getting Right Down to Business…
As you can see from the picture above, we have seen over 1047% growth during these past three years according to the Inc 500 Listing. And, this hasn’t been updated yet for 2014, which is going to be even more impressive!
But, first off, I want to say that if you are considering joining this business, then you are a very wise person. I don’t normally try to persuade my readers to do anything, unless I believe it’s in their absolute best interest. But, I genuinely believe that if you were to join this company right now, you could not go wrong.
I can say that with complete honestly right now because my husband and I have personally helped/mentored several dozen (even hundreds) of people to quit their previous jobs, pay off debt, and change their lives financially! In fact, many of our best friends and family members now work with us full-time and it’s been an incredible blessing to share so much quality time with all of these people we love so much.
So, the following topics cover what I think are the most important questions for a newbie looking into the It Works Global business:
It Works Global! – Who Are They?
It Works is truly something special. They have been around for 11 years, (having recently moved their headquarters down to Bradenton, FL) and we have been involved with them since 2007.
Never once have we had to question the direction of the company or their genuine love for their distributors.
My husband and I are on the lower far left, but this shows you how much fun the group has, and what I mean when I say that is that It Works Global is a family. In the center of the photo is Cindy and Mark Pentecost (CEO), as well as all the top dog corporate staff! (Chris Burns, Mike Potillo, Steve Neeson, etc.)
It Works Global is a ‘family’ and the atmosphere at their corporate headquarters is one of compassion. Fist bumps, hugs, and catchy phrases like “whole notha level,” and “one team, one mission” are thrown around several times per day.
They truly are not scared to tell others what they believe, as they begin every day with a group prayer session and a genuine rendition of the good ol’ pledge of allegiance.
Their team is invested in creating a legacy, and their dedication to their distributors is like nothing I’ve ever seen. If you are wondering about whether or not you can ‘trust’ It Works Global with your time and resources… you can.
It Works reached their first goal of being featured on Inc. 500 in 2011, and in 2013, they blew their previous year’s sales numbers out of the water. And, as of March 2014, they are on track to becoming one of the fastest growing companies in the world.
What’s The “It Wrap”?
The wrap is the product responsible for the unique way the message of It Works Global is communicated across the nation. It enables men and women, a care-free, no pressure method of selling by having a relaxing party with friends and family. And the result of those relaxing parties is lots of fun, and some crazy results after just 45 minutes.
Does the It Works Body Wrap Really Work?
My wife and I were both extremely skeptical about the It Works Wrap™ (also known as the Ultimate Body Applicator) when we were first introduced to it. Since then, we’ve seen it work on literally thousands of people, through wrap parties, conventions, expos, parties, and even on ourselves. It tightens, tones, and firms any area it touches.
It’s truly an incredible product, and if you don’t believe me, ask the tens of thousands of new customers that are joining It Works Global every month because of it!
How Do You Use The Wrap & How Often?
This PDF, which was recently created by the corporate team does a great job of explaining all the FAQs regarding the It Works Body Wrap.
How Much Does The Wrap Cost?
The wraps come in packages of 4, and are approximately $15 each ($59/box) when you agree to become a repeat customer with It Works via their Loyal Customer program. If you aren’t ready to become a repeat customer, you can purchase them at retail for approximately $25 each ($99/box).
Does “It Works” Have Other Products?
It Works! actually has dozens of other products, and personally, the ‘wrap’ is not my favorite of all the products.
I’ll give you a quick rundown here of some of my favorites, and you can decide for yourself which ones you like the best!
Fat Fighter! – “The Cheat”
Personally, I should eat a little better than I do, so when I do end up ordering Jet’s pizza when I shouldn’t… that’s when I take the Fat Fighter. The Fat Fighter has NeOpuntia™ fiber in it, which is a natural ingredient made from cactus leaves. NeOpuntia is clinically proven to help absorb the fat from your fatty meals and expel it as waste.
The Alkalizing, Detoxing, Balancing GREENS!
And, the Greens are my absolute favorite. Some people like the Greens in juice, but I love it in water and I also like it in my tea. It has a nice orange flavor, and after having it, I always feel more energized. If you’d like to read more about the greens check out this mega-breakdown/review.

It Works’ Wrap Parties 101
If you’d like to see an entire wrap party, hosted LIVE from my own home, just press play below!
What is a Wrap Party?
A wrap party is an It Works! Global exclusive home party that features their signature product, the It Works! wrap. Unlike any other spa or beauty treatment on the market, these home body wraps are made of all-natural ingredients and are designed to tighten, tone and firm any area they’re applied to in as little as 45 minutes.
Hosting a wrap party is an easy and fun way to get friends, family, and strangers together to try the It Works! wrap for themselves and learn more about the business opportunity It Works! Global has to offer. While the ultimate goal of a wrap party should be signing up new loyal customers and distributors, it’s never an unsuccessful party when you end it with extra cash in your pocket.
Independent Distributor or Loyal Customer?
When you enroll as a loyal customer with It Works! Global, you’re agreeing to something pretty simple; in exchange for wholesale pricing on products for life (yes, for life!), you must choose at least one product for your autoship for three months. You can switch up which products you want delivered to you each month and may cancel your autoship anytime after your initial three month commitment is up.
Signing up to be a distributor, on the other hand, includes a few more perks…
As an independent distributor for It Works!, you can sell any (and hopefully all) It Works! products at their retail cost for an immediate profit. More importantly, however, you gain a unique opportunity to build your own business where you choose who you want to work with, when you want to work, and how you want to work.
Although there is an initial sign-up fee of $99 (normally $199), you receive a box of four wraps that retails for $99. In a nutshell, this means you can sell those four wraps at $25 each and break even for all of your sign-up costs after just one wrap party!
How much is my Autoship as a Distributor?
In order to maintain active distributor status, you must have at least $80 worth of products (in Bonus Volume) in your autoship every month. It’s totally up to you which products you want to order, but it’s always wise to keep some extra wraps on hand. 🙂
You’ll have your own e-suite, which is essentially a little back-office where you can manage your auto-ship at any time.
How Much Money can I Make with It Works?
A lot of people ask me this question with hopes of a specific number or an exact timeline, but it truly depends on the person—just like any other business, what you put into it is what you get out of it.
In order to be successful with It Works! Global, you need to be self-motivated, focused, and CONSTANTLY talking to new people about your business.
One of my favorite quotes sums all of this up pretty well…
“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.” – Kenneth H. Blanchard
If you’d like to know more details about how the actual compensation plan works, however, you can check out this video I made to explain it!
But… I don’t know ANYthing about Business!?
Throughout the six years I’ve been working this business, I’ve heard just about every excuse in the book…
- “I’m not very business savvy…”
- “I’ve never been in sales…”
- “I just don’t know if I have time…”
- “I’m very shy…”
The list goes on and on, but the beauty of this business is that you have a built-in network of support as soon as you sign up.
The person who signs you up as a distributor will be your mentor (and, of course, I’d love to be that person 🙂 )and will supply you with all of the training and tools you need to succeed in this business.
How Do You Promote The Business?
The beauty of this business is that its promoting possibilities are endless (well…if you’re creative!). I say the possibilities are endless because you can essentially promote this business everywhere you go, to everyone you meet, because beauty and wellness products are always in demand. A few of the most common ways to promote, however, are through…
1). Wrap Parties
2). Internet Marketing & Advertising
Why Should I Join YOUR Team?
I know I’m biased, but I really can’t say enough wonderful things about my team. Everyone is so incredibly supportive and encouraging of one another that we’ve grown to be like a family.
When we’re not having wrap parties or blitzing with one another, we’re always keeping in touch through calls, texts, emails, and social media to ensure that each and every team member feels supported.
In other words… WE TAKE CARE OF EACHOTHER.
How Can I Start Making Money FAST?
The first thing you need to do if you want to make money… is you have to enroll to sell It Works! products!
Once you’ve done that, you have to work with your upline (which, hopefully is me 🙂 ) to schedule your first wrap party!
Once you enroll, you and I will have a conversation on the phone and I’ll explain to you our “Steps to Success” which is the system we try to duplicate with all new distributors to help them build a strong team, and start making money as quickly as possible. In a nutshell, it’s how you go about getting your first customers/distributors (others who want to sell the product).
What Is Your Team Like?
If I had to describe my team in one word, it’d have to be FUN. As corny as that sounds… it really is the truth.
Because we’re all working toward the same goal, my teammates and I are always talking, strategizing, and keeping each other motivated. My team revolves around communication and we’re constantly helping one another achieve new goals.
And now that social media has grown to be so popular, it’s never been simpler for our team to connect and support one another…
