The Amway name is once again prominent. Advertising and marketing efforts increased, including high profile event sponsorships and television advertising.
Company leaders Steve Van Andel and Doug DeVos, the sons of the founders, also attribute the growth to other factors, including the rise in unemployment. People turn to Amway to become product distributors to make extra money.
