You probably found this Advocare Review because you were searching for information on the company, their products, and the business opportunity. The words Advocare scam can be found dotted around the internet and it is my wish to put things into perspective for you and let you into a little known secret that the Advocare reps will definitely not be telling!
This review is coming to you from an independent third party who has a huge amount of experience in the Network Marketing industry in general, so there is absolutely no bias in what I am going to share with you. Please read this entire article, because at the end there will be some important information for you concerning how you can be a top performer with Advocare, should you decide that this company is right for you, but more importantly the one big secret about this company that their reps definitely won’t tell you!
Advocare Review | the Company
You should know that Advocare is a premier health and wellness company, offering a wide variety of products for those who are in need of energy, weight loss, nutrition, and peak performance too. As a result of the quality products, Advocare has continued to receive rave reviews regarding the company and the research behind it all.
Advocare is also known for its great care in how they teach their consultants to live debt free. With that being said, in 2002 the company released a program called Debt Busters in order to help people learn how to handle creditors and pay off debts. As a result, the company received an award from the Direct Seller’s Association that would catapult them into the top rankings of network marketing companies.
This company has shown steady growth since that time, and with the Success School events, the company’s leaders take great care in making sure that those who are getting started get all of the training and momentum they need to carry on their business.
Advocare Review | the Products
Part of this Advocare Review is to share with you the various segments of the products that are designed to help you get started on your journey to perfect health and wellness. The various products include the Trim, Active, Well, Performance Elite, and the skincare line which is known as Definite Difference.
Advocare was one of the first companies to have a Scientific Medial Advisory Board, which was there to not only give credibility to the company, but to make a point that the products were nothing less than the highest of quality. With high quality ingredients and standardized extracts, it’s no surprise that so many use the Advocare products for better digestion and absorption.
This means that whatever nutrients the body takes in, it will absorb them and actually be able to use them. Those who use the products in conjunction with a balanced diet are getting an optimal result, which proves the product is nothing less than amazing.
Advocare Review | the Business Opportunity
Okay so you know a bit more about the products but what about the Advocare business opportunity? Advocare positions their business opportunity so that their business owners (Advisors) have 5 ways to earn money. This includes retail customers, distributorship at 20% earnings, and a 40% discount on the product, and of course the money that you can earn when you recruit others into the business.
You are also allowed to become a customer or a distributor which is much like joining Costco or Sams Club, you pay $79.99 (plus shipping & tax) for a year membership. then in 7-10 business days you will receive 2 different products (Spark & Slam) which comes to a $50 value. Also, distributors are given a 25% discount off products.
The ‘Advisor’ status allows you to have a 40% discount (which is for life) and the business builder opportunity and this Advocare Review is to point out to you that it is at this level that the most money can be earned.
The cost to become an Advisor is $3000, or rather (as one of my advisor sources informed me) you will receive $3k worth of products in the mail, but you are able to apply your 40% discount to your Advisor order. This is what Advocare call ‘The Game Changer’ as you receive $3k worth of products to use or sell for one single fee of $2100. I am told that if you were to actually retail all of this you would be less than $900 out of pocket for the status of Advisor.
Can most folks buy in at the $3,000 level? Probably not, so it’s wise to ask all the questions about what level you should join at, and at what level you can earn a residual income.
Advocare Review | What other Reps definitely Won’t Tell you?
Now that you have read this entire Advocare Review, I have something to share with you so you can make an educated decision about whether this is for you or not.
For as many Advocare reps who are making money with their business, there are 5 times as many making nothing, or even losing money with their Advocare business and there is a key reason for this:
The reasons is that most people getting started, treat their business as a hobby and have no knowledge of how to build a Network Marketing business. (Oh and by the way, it’s not their fault, because this is what they’re told by the inexperienced rep trying to sign them up!)
What I mean by that is, if you are not talking to at least 10 people a day about your Advocare business, (i.e networking) and not promoting yourself as a viable person to work with (i.e marketing) then you are not doing enough to generate a stream of prospects to talk to. So you can imagine, most people are not doing anything like enough to build a business and actually end up spending money on advertising or buying leads and their business ends up costing them money rather than earning them money.
The average network marketer in the industry in general (and not just with Advocare) lasts just 3 months.
And 80% of your team will do nothing (FACT!).
And from the ones who DO join – 1 out of every 4 will leave within 3 months.
So when you understand these statistics you’ll realise that you need to sponsor a LOT of people to make this truly work for you. But most distributors run out of money before ever getting any of their team to duplicate.
So what’s the answer?
Well if this is your first exposure to Network Marketing, then please take the time to read this completely unbiased report that I wrote to guide new people – It’s completely free and will be very worthwhile for you.
Advocare Review – Action plan for success
1) Write down what you want from your business – what I mean by that is, you need to know your income goals and where you want to go with this. Failing to do this, is like jumping in the driving seat of the car with no idea of where you’re going or what your route is going to be.
2) Take time to learn the business that you’re in. And I don’t just mean Advocare – I mean Network Marketing. The clue is in the name – take time to learn how to build your network and how to market your business properly by learning some simple online marketing strategies.
3) Choose your sponsor wisely – this is very important. Choose someone who has the online marketing skills that you want to acquire, and of course someone who is already achieving what you want to achieve. Ask them to map you out how you can earn a residual income of $1,000 per month and how many people /sales you would need to sponsor to achieve that. (This will be a stumbling point for many sponsors as most will never have achieved a residual income of $1,000 a month.
4) Now this one is contentious and probably NOT what you want to hear if you’re seriously considering Network Marketing as a choice of home business…….. but that’s what this review is for. To give you the FACTS.
So here goes…..
Network Marketing does create more millionaires than any other industry – it’s true – that’s a fact. BUT, and it’s a BIG but……. it is also true that the way the commission structure works in most MLMs you would have to have hundreds, if not thousands of people in your downline to achieve a full time income.
The reason for this is that most MLMs pay about 5-10% on your team’s sales activity. Think about that for a minute if you are serious about wanting to leverage the power of a team for residual income (which is the obvious goal if you are in Network Marketing). For every $100 of product sold, you are going to earn a measly $5.
THIS is why there is such a HUGE failure rate (97%) in the industry and why so many people drop out when you have just spent ages trying to recruit them.
So what do the top achievers know that the new Network Marketer doesn’t know?
Well they know that they need to have something to offer to the people who say NO to their primary Network Marketing business. Because this way they are able to make their advertising fund itself.
So here’s what I mean. Let’s take two different scenarios.
Say you just got started and had no clue how to market your business online. You know you could be using YouTube or Facebook or Twitter or Instagram to build your business……but you don’t know how to do it.
Then someone tries to recruit you into their business on Facebook, but you’re happy with the one you have – so you say NO to them. But then they offer to help you to build YOUR business by giving you free access to some Facebook, or YouTube or Twitter or Instagram training……
You’d be pretty pleased right?
And you stay in touch with that person because they helped you. And you find yourself getting some emails from them that help you all the time to build your business.
So you stay close to them because they always seem to provide really helpful information.
(It’s human instinct to want to “give back” to someone who helps you – and when your situation may change with your business – who will you want to follow, or buy something from?)
Okay let’s take scenario 2……
Say you added a Marketing training system to your business to help you – and say this training system had an affiliate programme that paid HUGE commissions on other members you bring in. So this automatically gives you a secondary income source AND if you bring in your own downline, then they are all being trained on how to build their business properly……double wammy for you right?
So you go through the training and you find out how to generate leads for free using Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Periscope, Pinterest, blogging, Twitter, (and SO much more) and you are chatting to people on Facebook using the strategies we teach. Then someone says NO to your primary business.
So before…..you would have just said goodbye. But NOW you can say – well would you like some free training on………Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc etc etc and would you like to attend some weekly training calls that will help you build your business for FREE? Now who is going to turn THAT one down?
And to register for the free training they have to leave their email – which goes straight onto your list of subscribers. And yes….you guessed it – then they start to get really helpful emails on how to build their business and they get invited to weekly training webinars showing them the latest marketing strategies – all the while they are “cookied” to YOUR affiliate link should they decide to join because they see what great value it is.
Is this starting to make sense to you?
I’ve managed to build two separate businesses to 5-Figure months and I’ve done that by giving value to my prospects using the tools available through my favourite marketing system.
