Has anyone here heard of Jeunesse? I hadn’t, but my cousin Bob sure had.
Yeah, I was surprised when Bob told me about Jeunesse. You see, Bob kinda lived in a cave. He had hardly heard of anything these days. Uber? Nope. Deliveroo? Nope. AirBnB? Nada. But…….. Jeunesse? Why had he heard of them, but not some of the biggest companies on the planet?
You see, Bob wasn’t living in a REAL cave. He was living in a video game cave. Yeah. One of THOSE guys.
Call of Duty, League of Legends, Fortnite. One of THOSE guys. Believe me, he was far too old for this, crap, but he wouldn’t listen.
Thing is, Bob didn’t have a real job. He came into a bit of cash a few years ago and decided to throw in the towel on his mid-level management gig.
I didn’t blame him, I hate those cubicle-prisons as much as the next guy. That’s why I’ve recently been working real hard on a LEGIT way to make money and be my own boss at the same time. Local Lead Generation. More on that soon.
But back to Bob for a minute. So yeah, he’d come into this money. Instead of investing it wisely and setting it himself up for the rest of his life, he jacked in his job and played video games.
He was SUPER-addicted to those things. People thought he was a loser, but he didn’t care. He was even one of those guys that’d spend thousands on “In-Game” purchases. I didn’t really know WTF they were either, but they sure seemed like a MASSIVE waste of money to me.
Each to their own, right? You can’t judge how someone wants to live their life. Some of my other relatives sure were, but I’m not that kind of guy.
I mean his ma, my aunt—she was raging at him any time she could. He had his own place, so he managed to avoid that most of the time.
Why hadn’t he heard of AirBnB? He never went away.
Why hadn’t he heard of Uber? He barely left his video game cave.
Why hadn’t he heard of Deliveroo or Uber-Eats? This one might be a bit more of a surprise because he was CERTAINLY the type of guy who enjoyed his pizza and other take-outs. But he was lucky enough to live across the road from a couple of stores and had a few others on speed-dial. He was old-school like that.
The thing is, Bob had a bit of a problem. He was running out of cash.
Too many pizzas and in-game purchases.
He needed a real job.
The other problem was—Bob did NOT want a real job. The real world had kinda left him behind over the last few years.
So how had he heard of Jeunesse? He’d started researching ways to make some money as his own boss, and this was one of the ventures he’d landed.
I was really sceptical about Jeunesse when I started doing a bit of research. If you want to know a bit more about it and whether it might be right for you. AND whether it was right for Bob, then keep reading this Jeunesse review so I can help you out.
Let’s start with the basics. What even IS Jeunesse?
Jeunesse is a range of anti-ageing skincare products. There’s a LOT of hype around them.
Despite not being available in any of the big department stores. SOME people were saying this stuff is the best in the game. Do you believe these people? I didn’t.
But hey, I should stop being so judgmental, right? Let’s do a bit more research first.
I know you’re already starting to question Bob’s role in this. I was too, believe me.
Let’s put it this was, he was definitely NOT the poster boy for anti-ageing skincare.
He’d been playing video games and eating pizza in the dark for the last 5 years.
So WHY did Bob pick Jeunesse over all these other things he could have started promoting?
If he WANTED to get involved in a pyramid scheme (I’m not sure why that’d be anyone’s first choice)—there were loads of other ones.
He could even start promoting tech products. Better fit, right? Or even pizza.
But no, Bob was gonna be a Jeunesse sales rep.
Turns out he’d met someone in his Call of Duty clan that was pushing this stuff. They were a bit higher up in the pyramid and Bob and seen how they were able to quit their day-job too.
Okay, so happenstance happens. Hence the name. Bob was into Jeunesse. I still wasn’t sure this was the right fit. But it is what it is.
But what about Jeunesse itself? That’s what you’re really here for. You banged “Jeunesse scam” or ” Jeunesse review” into Google and ended up at this review. You could have done a lot worse. But you wanna know more. I got you.
You see, I was intrigued as well. The reality was, I still really liked Bob. Despite his many faults, I didn’t wanna see him get burned. So I decided to do a bit more digging into Jeunesse. Maybe you can check out this review so you don’t have to.
Let’s start with the products. That’s always a good place to start.
There’s one main product with Jeunesse, and that’s “Instantly Ageless”.
I tried some, and it did NOT make me instantly ageless.
Okay, you probably expected that.
Cool name, but was it any good in general?
This is not something I knew too much about. Neither did Bob.
But what I DID know about is pyramid schemes. Sorry. I meant to say “MLM Network”. I keep doing that.
Jeunesse was founded in 2009 by two people named Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis.
They’ve got a range of products, with the Instantly Ageless cream being the flagship one. They also sell health supplements and more.
All good so far, right?
But what Bob and I soon found out was that the main way to make money wasn’t by selling these products like a normal affiliate, it was by hiring more sales reps to work under your.
The sirens were ringing at this point.
THAT’S how pyramid schemes work.
The people at the top make their money from the sales rep network rather than actually selling many, or any, products.
And what was Bob thinking at this point?
The trouble was, Bob isn’t really the type of guy that knows many potential skincare sales reps. He’s not the sort of guy who knows any.
To start selling stuff for Jeunesse you’ve gotta buy their $29.95 start kit. Boo!
I’ve worked for so many top affiliate networks and basically none of them make you buy stuff before you can promote stuff. But pyramid schemes? They basically all do.
That’s basically how they work.
So you get a starter website with the start kit which isn’t bad in itself. And I’ve seen a lot more expensive pyramids to get into, for sure.
You’ve also gotta pay about $20 a year to stay in the system. This is still A BIT fishy, but I’ve seen ones that are a LOT more expensive, believe me.
However, there’s one part of Jeunesse that makes them a fair bit better than most other pyramid schemes. You CAN be a wholesale customer and buy these products to sell on your own. This is decent, but the products are expensive.
As Bob soon found out, they were hard to sell, too.
I soon did a little research and found that the authorities were starting to come down hard on the claims that were being used to sell a number of these Jeunesse products. Like, some of it was really NOT verifiable and nowhere near as good as you thought. You mean they AREN’T instantly ageless? What a surprise.
A lot of the sales rep teams are apparently promoting these products as miracle cures.
I knew that some of this came from top-down. But some might not have.
The problem was, pyramid networks like this always tend to create a load of people who’re desperate to sell the products. They bought into the hard-sell themselves, thought they were gonna be making loads of money, but soon realized they weren’t. A lot of them were even losing money.
This always creates desperate people. They aren’t all bad people, some are just in a bad place. But they will hype these products to try and sell them. They’re in a hole themselves, normally.
But that’s because in many MLM networks like this, the only real way to make money is by hiring more sales reps. You get a cut from their fees and move higher up the pyramid. That’s why the people at the top are making plenty of wedge. They get paid no matter what, even if no products are sold. They don’t even NEED any products. They just get money from the sales network. Those signup fees, remember?
So how was Bob doing with all this? Surprise surprise, Bob wasn’t making any money. In fact, Bob had lost enthusiasm for Jeunesse. He did start talking about a couple of other MLM schemes and I was worried he was gonna blow even more on them, but a serious chat made him get a bit of perspective.
You see, while Bob didn’t like Jeunesse or MLM marketing, he had started to enjoy getting out of the house a bit more. He had to, as he’d realized early on that selling Jeunesse over Call of Duty server chats was never gonna work. So he had at least STARTED to get out into the real world. And guess what? He liked it.
He still played the odd video game and ate a bit too much pizza. But things were getting better.
He’d finally realized he might have to go and get a real job. So he was getting out there and doing just that. Part-time, to start with. But hey, there’s nothing wrong with that.
And another positive was that he still had some money saved up from before. He hadn’t spent it ALL on beer, pizza and video games. Phew. Things were looking up for Bob, but his future wasn’t gonna be with Jeunesse.
He was interested in other ways to make money online alongside his real job. I told him about Local Lead Generation, which I’d been happy with for some time now. It’s a lot better than any of these pyramid schemes. I think Bob can make it a success, too.
Back in high school, there was this dude in my class called Ron.
Now Ron was BIG into ancient Egypt. He loved that stuff.
That’s cool, everyone’s gotta have a passion.
Bruce was into Space, bigtime.
Me? I was into baseball.
The teachers were probably a bit happier with kids wanting to be archaeologists or physicists than some pie-in-the-sky baseball dream. But I didn’t care.
Maybe there were right, though. Bruce went on to work for NASA. Nice.
And Ron? Well things were a bit different with Ron.
I hadn’t heard from him for a good few years.
This one night me and the boys were cutting the crap in the local bar.
Just a few drinks after a hard week, you know how it goes.
Then imagine my surprise when someone piped up with some new info on our old boy Ron.
No, he wasn’t leading expeditions into ancient Egypt.
But he WAS doing something to do with pyramids.
He was working for a PYRAMID SCHEME!
One of my other bros was laughing about how ironic that was, since he was so into ancient Egypt. I’m not sure it was irony, but then English wasn’t my passion either. It sure was funny though.
Since I’d been working in internet marketing for a while now, I’d seen a lot of these come and go.
You see, I’d been making some good bank for a few years with Local Lead Generation. It’s as legit as they come. More on that later.
But the thing is, before I found Local Lead Generation, I’d tried a lot of duds.
Things you THINK are gonna take off, but never do.
So I’d seen a lot of these pyramid schemes. I’d seen a lot of people fail on them, too.
I was always kinda apprehensive about getting into them.
I’d seen how they sometimes preyed on desperate people. But I’d also seen people make good money from them.
So I wanted to know more about this scheme. It was called World Ventures. Nope, never heard of it either. It sure sounded pretty generic.
But I’d always been the kinda guy who didn’t like to rush to judgements.
Ron was one of the smartest guys in our class. He was also a decent bloke.
And apparently, he’d been making real bank with this.
We’re talking yacht money. Nice.
Living the dream!
So I decided to have a closer look into World Ventures. I was gonna start at the bottom without any prejudices. See if it works for normal people who DIDN’T get into it early like Ron did.
You see, I didn’t mind some of the marketing networks. They tend to call them MLM or MultiLevel Marketing. It’s all good if the products are quality and the people at the bottom (the late adopters) can still make money.
Was that the case with World Ventures? Read my World Ventures review to find out.
World Ventures Review
At the start, I thought it’d be a good idea to give Ron a heads up. I thought I could ask him a few questions and make sure he knew I was gonna be writing this review.
Trouble is, I was having a hard time getting hold of him.
I mean, we weren’t that close back in the day, but I still thought he’d talk to me.
I reached out to some of his closer friends. No luck.
I was starting to think he didn’t really want to talk about World Ventures.
I wondered why, but tried not to make any judgements.
It was no biggie, I mean maybe it’d be better if I just got into World Ventures without any prior knowledge. Like the real people who were just starting on this.
But wait a minute. I’m getting WAY ahead of myself here. We haven’t even covered the basics. What even IS World Ventures?
Let’s have a look…
World Ventures touts itself as a dream vacation provider. That’s all good, I can dig it.
Only instead of actually selling these vacations yourself, it turns out the main way to make money is by recruiting other salespeople. That’s kinda how most pyramid schemes work these days. Sorry. Most MLM networks, I meant. Ha!
Anyway, they’re not all bad. I wanted to know if World Ventures was one of the good ones. After all, Ron had been making big bucks, right?
World Ventures was founded in 2005, and it brought in nearly a billion in revenue in 2016. Nice.
They SAY they’ve got 500,000 employees—but this figure’s unconfirmed. I reckon they’re simply adding up the number of network salespeople that occasionally work for them. Maybe that have EVER worked for them. But again, this is unconfirmed as well. It’s just a hunch. I’m 100% on hunches half of the time.
So World Ventures was started by this dude Wayne Nugent, along with his buddy Mike Azcue. They SAY that they wanted to build the “Mary Kay of travel”—I found that blurb when I was Googling them. Trouble is, I don’t know who Mary Kay is. I guess that’s for another article. What I THINK they’re saying is that they wanna be successful. I get that. Don’t we all?
Anyway, things certainly got off to a good start for Wayne and Mike. Ernst and Young even nominated our boy Wayne to be entrepreneur of the year in 2010. So these aren’t the sort of scam artists you see running other networks. They’ve got traction and a reasonably amount of respect in industry circles.
But does that mean it’s a good idea signing up to be a World Ventures rep? I’m not sure.
Yes, the guys at the top are raking it in. Big respect to them for that. But what about guys like me who were just gonna start at the bottom and hopefully make some money? What about guys like you?
I’m sure that’s why you’re at this World Ventures review. After all, it’s too late to be one of the lucky ones who got in at the start. Guys like Ron. What happened to Ron, anyway? More on Ron later.
It hasn’t been completely plain-sailing for Mike and Wayne, either. They’ve made a ton of cash—but they’ve also been sued continuously. Even by the Norwegian Government.
These guys weren’t fans.
What were they sued for? Being a pyramid scheme, basically. Told you.
Should have known, since Ron was always into those Egyptians.
What does World Ventures Even sell?
We’ve got this far into the review and you still don’t really know what World Ventures are trying to pimp. It’s about travel, we get that, but what’s so special about it?
In a word… Nothing.
I mean, they’re offering discounts and other travel-based offers for a monthly fee. A lot of this stuff can be found on other big-name affiliate sites WITHOUT the monthly fee. You’re basically paying for discounts. Some of them are ok, but I wouldn’t say they’re REALLY worth singing up to a monthly plan for.
Look, it’s not scammy at this level. You won’t see me calling this a World Ventures scam. You pay your monthly fee, and you get some good discounts.
Some people might prefer to do this than spend hours finding these discounts individually. Time is money, right?
But when I looked a bit deeper into these offers they seemed even less attractive. They weren’t flexible at all with dates or anything like that. Basically, if you like an offer, you have to book it on their terms and the ability to customize things isn’t easy.
You can’t combine offers either, or save reward points to spend all at once. Things are pretty limited here. There are much better travel offer sites out there. Many of these you don’t have to pay for.
This is always one of my biggest problems with pyramid schemes like this. Sorry, MLM Networks. Keep making that mistake.
Basically, if the products are good, then what’s the problem? I don’t see one with using a network to promote stuff.
But when they products AREN’T good, that’s when I start to have second thoughts.
But the REAL problem with MLM networks like this is even bigger…
It’s that they’re really hard to make money with for people at the bottom of the pyramid.
So if the people buying these plans aren’t getting anything good, and the people selling them aren’t making any money. What’s the point? Answers on a postcard, please.
Oh yeah. I know what the point was—the people at the stop still continue to make money. Just nobody else gets any value at all from this stuff.
THAT’S why MLM networks are getting a bad rap these days.
So in order to become an affiliate with World Ventures, you gotta pay a signup fee and then a monthly fee. Most affiliate networks I’ve worked with are happy to let you in for free in return for promoting their products.
Problem is, because the products aren’t that great or easy to promote—the main way it seems like World Ventures makes any money is with these membership plans. Yep, you got it—they make the bulk of their cash from their affiliates, rather than their actual products.
And when you realise that you’ve gotta pay for an even more costly affiliate membership in order to qualify for the best commissions, things get even harder.
I remember when i first got into affiliate marketing, I was stoked with how much content and help PROPER affiliates gave me. And when I started making sales, I started making money. I DID NOT have to pay them before I started making sales. And I qualified for higher commissions based on my performance, NOT how much I paid them. Spotting the difference here? That’s not how World Ventures works…
And while people are still making money from World Ventures (people like Ron)—there’s an income disclosure statement which makes for interesting reading.
Basically, it says that 80% of affiliates aren’t making any money from World Ventures. And that 99% of affiliates make less than $2,000 a year. For those of you thinking about quitting their day jobs for this—think again. For those who’ve ALREADY quit their day jobs for this—Ouch.
So nobody’s really making money from this anymore? Not the people at the bottom, anyway. And there are loads of legal issues associated with World Ventures? And the products people end up with aren’t that great? I think you know which way to go on this already.
And back to the product range. The problem with using this model to promote World Ventures is that you often get desperate salespeople who’re already out of pocket pushing low-quality products to people who don’t really want them. The hard sell. You got it. This leaves both parties unhappy. And that’s not a party I wanna be involved in. No cake, either.
So what happened to Ron? Ah yeah, our boy Ron.
He still wasn’t answering my calls. Ron, bro! We go way back.
I’d heard on the grapevine that he’d been taking a lot of heat from friends and family that he’d got involved in World Ventures. He’d made some nice cash, and bought some cool stuff. But things were drying up. Word was that he’d moved on to some more legit money-making ventures. Good for him.
But where does that leave the people further down the pyramid? I want my $200 signup fee back!
A bit later, I started finding some better ways to make money online.
What I realised was that these get rich quick schemes were often just that. Schemes.
To make actual money, you’ve normally gotta put a bit of work in. I know that doesn’t sound like fun to most of you. But that’s just the way it is.
I found this other cool gig called Local Lead Generation. It lets you set up your own lead generation business for real clients who pay well. It could be your first step towards that passive income deal you’ve always wanted. It was for me, anyway. You should check it out.
A few years back, I was in a bit of a sticky situation.
I’d just lost my job. And I didn’t really have any money left.
It was just after the global economic crisis. A few of my buddies actually lost their homes in that biz. At least I still had a roof over my head. For now.
Truth is I probably had about a month’s rent left. Yes—I was still renting.
Food? Ha! If $1 cans of noodles count, yes I was still eating.
My dinner. Yum.
The thing is, I’d be bragging to everyone who’d listen about how I was gonna quit my job soon and start making money on the internet. I’d made a bit of cash, but I basically had no idea. This was way before I’d started making REAL money with my own Local Lead Generation gig. I’m gonna tell you more about how good THAT is in a bit.
But back to my “situation”.
Now I actually needed money—fast. I’d sold my bike on eBay to pay my latest gas bill. I didn’t really have anything left.
So my bro Kenny was like, “Hey, I thought you were gonna be an online millionaire by now anyway.”
Truth is—I didn’t know the first thing about making money online.
The money I had made—I’d just been lucky.
I’d managed to refer a few pals to a couple of online services I’d been using. You know those “refer-a-friend” checks? Yeah, pretty basic—I know.
But I needed to see this job loss as a GOOD thing. I DID hate my job. I was just a mindless cubicle-warrior. I wanted out, but now I’d been pushed before I was ready.
It was time to sink or swim. I had to see if I could REALLY make it alone.
Time to sink or swim.
I’d heard a bit of chatter about internet marketing. Affiliate marketing to be precise. The problem was, I didn’t really know the first thing about it.
So over the next few days I was like a sponge for information. I read everything I could, watched videos, took notes, joined forums. You name it. I did it.
I started finding out about affiliate marketing.
In those couple of days, I also started finding out about a lot of different internet marketing “products”.
As I realized much later, if there’s one way to make money online—it’s by making money from other people looking to make money online. That’s what a lot of guys in the “internet marketing” niche are really doing. It took me a while to figure that out.
Now I liked the look of some of these programs and courses. The problem was, most of them were expensive. Really expensive. Definitely not eating 5-day old noodles sort of money. That was my life back then.
One in particular caught my eye. It was called Affilorama.
The great news was that they offered a free area for guys just like me. There was more stuff under the hood if you actually wanted to pay—but I wasn’t gonna do that.
And hey, you know how I actually made money referring some friends to stuff beforehand? I soon learned that this was pretty much exactly how affiliate marketing worked, too. I just had to refer more people to other products. People I didn’t even know. And I’d get a cut from each of them.
It sounded easy, but it wasn’t.
To cut a long story short: I failed.
The thing about affiliate marketing is that it’s actually a lot harder than people think.
Loads of people are attracted to this game because they see it as a get-rich-quick kinda deal. It’s actually much harder than that. Most of these guys quit and move onto to the next dream. Only the guys who really put the work in make it a success.
Me? I guess I wasn’t willing to put the work in.
Affilorama helped me with the basics, but I couldn’t afford the more expensive parts of the course or products they offered.
In the end, I had to get a real job. Sucks, I know. But at least I paid my next month’s rent.
A few years later I actually had the opportunity to get back into internet marketing. This time I was doing it in the evenings alongside my existing job. So I didn’t have that make-or-break stress factor.
Things went a lot better, but I also remember being grateful that I had at least SOME background knowledge in this stuff. And a lot of that was thanks to Affilorama.
Now I know a lot more about IM, I keep seeing products like this all the time. People ask me my opinion about Affilorama. The truth is, my memory is like a goldfish sometimes—I struggled to remember how good Affilorama really was.
That’s why I decided to sign up again and give it another whirl. Now I knew a bit more about marketing, I’d be able to give it a proper review that’s backed by my own expertise.
So if you’re looking for an Affilorama review, you’re in the right place. This might not sound very humble, but I reckon it’s actually one of the best Affilorama reviews around.
What is Affilorama? It’s basically a membership program that has a selection of tools aimed to help you make money with affiliate marketing.
I signed up, and things had changed a fair bit. The site looks great.
There’s one important point to remember here: the basic stuff is free. But not everything on Affilorama is free.
Basic membership gets you access to an Affiliate Marketing Quick-Start Guide, a Downloadable Roadmap to Success and 120 Video Lessons.
I’m gonna review all of that in this Affilorama review. But I’m also gonna review the stuff you’ve gotta PAY for. That’s the stuff I couldn’t afford access to way back when.
It’s not all free.
So there are three things you can buy separately. Path2Passive, AffiloTools and AffiloJetpack. These are what they’re calling “Advanced” training and tools. I think that’s code for, “stuff you gotta pay for.” But one of them is actually free—for now. Were they worth it? Keep reading this review to find out.
So what’s the free stuff like?
First thing’s first, let’s drill down on the freebies. Everyone loves a freebie, right?
And it’s actually pretty cool to get some of this stuff for nothing.
Let’s start with the Affiliate Marketing Quick-Start Guide.
Now this is pretty basic. It’s kinda like a free report. You see these all over the place in internet marketing.
They’re one of the tricks of the trade. Shall I tell you how they work?
Basically, marketers write a report or eBook—and they give it away for free. Some of them might tout it as something you should be paying money for, to make getting it free seem even more appealing.
(The truth is, nobody ever really pays for these sorts of free reports)
For the record, Affilorama aren’t really doing this. There’s no hard sell. I’m just telling you about the process.
A lot of people in internet marketing live by the phrase “the money’s in the list”. They’re all trying to build a list of email addresses or subscribers. So when someone downloads your free report, they sign-up to your list. It’s then that you send them your REAL offers and try and get them to buy something else.
That’s how a BIG section of the internet marketing industry works. I’ve got sidetracked here, but I just can’t help dropping value like this. Oh yeah, value’s important with these reports, too. They might be free—but it’s a good idea to give a few useful bits of info so people are more likely to open your future emails and more likely to buy from you.
Some people think email lists like this are the ONLY way to make money online. These people are mistaken.
The money’s in the list… Sometimes.
Anyway, the free report from Affilorama is cool. It’s got some good basic info, but not much of this is unique. You can get it elsewhere. But it’s free, and they aren’t spamming me since I signed up—so you might as well get involved. Especially if you’re a newbie to this stuff.
Next up is the Downloadable Roadmap to Success
This is an infographic. It looks cool, but I’m not sure why it’s being given such a prominent position here. It’s not that useful. I guess it could help someone, but a lot of this is covered with the other two resources.
The best chunk of value in the “free” area is the 120 video lessons. That’s a lot. And there are plenty of courses out there charging a hefty wedge for this sort of info.
Ok, not all of the videos are that long. But still, you can’t complain—it’s free! And there’s definitely some value here.
Okay, I said you can’t complain—one tiny issue I have is that these videos aren’t transcribed. Sometimes I like to skim through a text version, it’s easier to pick stuff out. So you’ve gotta watch them all instead. But it’s a minor issue.
So what do I think about the Affilorama free stuff? I think it’s good. You might know some of it already, and you CAN find this info elsewhere. But it’s free, and you can’t argue with that. It’s useful to have it all in one place, too.
But the real stuff you gotta pay for. And you need to know if it’s worth it, right?
Let’s have a look.
What about the advanced tools and training?
The first one’s called Pathway2Passive.
A lot of people dream about making passive income in affiliate marketing. That’s why most of them got into this business in the first place. It’s the ultimate goal.
I’ve had a few years experience in this industry now and let me tell you—it ain’t easy.
All those people who got into IM because they wanted to be passively self-sufficient within 3 months? They failed. They dropped out of the industry as quickly as they came into it.
It’s only the guys who’ve got real work-ethic who stick around. Because your first few internet marketing ventures will probably fail too.
It’s only when you learn from your mistakes and stick around that things tend to start to improve.
Dreaming of passive income.
And then after a few years of hard work you can start to see your passive income grow. If it was THAT easy to get passive income straight away—everyone would be doing it, right?
Pathway2Passive was built by a team of guys who’ve been in IM for years. They’ve failed, and they’ve learned what works.
They’ve built Pathway2Passive to help guys like you and me. People who are much newer to the industry. But you’ve STILL gotta put the work in.
A lot of this stuff was pretty useful. Especially the detail they go into about picking the right products to sell. There’s also some cool stuff on targeting the right audience, and improving your offer.
At this point, I’d recommend you ignore the name of the course. This stuff isn’t passive. It takes hard work. But once you’ve set up an efficient sales funnel with the right products and the right traffic, the workload CAN decrease a bit.
And the really cool thing about Pathway2Passive? It’s only $37. I know of some sites trying to charge ten times that for this sort of info.
It’s a useful little course at a reasonable price. You won’t find anything too revolutionary in there, but it is well written and informative. It’s worth a shot. Especially if you’re getting stuck with some of the basics.
The other main paid tool is AffiloJetpack. This stuff is at the other end of the market. It costs a whopping $997. It’s basically an out-the-box affiliate autopilot machine. It tries to take care of almost everything in the affiliate marketing game, so that you can get your own sites up and running really easily.
Now I’ve got a few issues with this.
Firstly, they compare the cost of getting something done with AffiloJetpack to if you had to do it yourself. Like, they’ve got hosting included but argue you’d be paying $96 for that if you did it yourself. I don’t know many hosting plans that are that expensive, especially if you’re just starting out and don’t have too much traffic.
Also, their WordPress theme is valued at $97. You can get loads of themes for FREE, and while the free ones are normally pretty basic—even a good paid one will be way less than this.
You do get a newsletter sequence of 90 emails. That’s pretty cool. There are also “free reports” for you to offer. Remember when I told you how that works earlier?
But basically, they say this stuff is worth a total of over $3,000—and you’re getting it for under $1k.
I’ve got issues with their math, here.
However, it’s easy to see exactly what you’re getting. It COULD be worth it if you like everything done for you. For example, you COULD write those emails yourself, or even the free reports. You’d need to know what you’re talking about, but you’ll also be able to create something that’s much more unique to your offer. It depends where your priorities lay. The stuff was pretty good quality, but you can do better if you do things yourself. As long as you know what you’re doing.
The other advanced tool is in beta right now, so it’s actually FREE. For the time being. Jump in while you can. It’s called AffiloTools and is basically an analytical package. It’s good, but there are loads of better ones out there. There’s nothing wrong with giving it a try since it’s free, though.
Woo. There we go. That was my Affilorama review. Worth it or not? That’s for you to choose. So if you’re still thinking of banging “Affilorama scam” into Google—don’t. It’s not a scam. It’s actually pretty affordable for most of the stuff, and there’s some good info in there.
But if you want to make REAL money online, you might want to think a bit more about something called Local Lead Generation. It’s what I’ve been doing for a while, and it’s pretty dope. I know I said passive income was hard in this game, but I’m finally getting there with Local Lead Generation.
Should you quit your job to become a full-time Vasayo
You are reading this Vasayo review for either of two
reasons. First, you want to decide if Vasayo is worth your investment. Second,
you have already invested, but the program is not working for you.
The good news! In this comprehensive review, I will explain
to you each and everything about Vasayo. I will help you decide whether their
health products and business opportunity are worth your money and time.
Once, my friend Joe left his job for an MLM (multilevel
marketing) program (I’ve to keep the name confidential). At that moment, I was shocked!
How someone could quit his well-paid job for something he’s
never tried before and something that has no guarantee of a constant income stream.
But within a year or two, Joe made good money through the
program, though he also did some home-based side job too. But MLM is now his
major income source.
Recently, I heard of Vasayo, another MLM, which reminded me
of Joe. Also, I am now tempted to try it out.
Like me, many of you might also be willing to try Vasayo. So
I did some research and came up with this detailed review.
Is Vasayo worth your investment?
Let’s read on with me.
First, what is Vasayo?
We can pay any price to live healthily. Well, health is
wealth! This makes MLMs dealing with health products thrive. Vasayo is one such
fastest emerging MLM company selling nutritional supplements.
From the company’s website and other resources, I came to
know that Dallin Larsen and Karree Larsen founded Vasayo in 2014. The company
has headquarters in Utah, USA and Hong Kong. Both seem to have significant
experience with the MLM industry.
Frankly, their previous MLM was a failure, but this one
seems genuine to me. After all, success starts with failures.
Coming to the point, Vasayo’s mission statement says that
they offer superior quality products to health-conscious consumers who demand
key ingredients. In fact, they earned a B
rating from the BBB (Better Business Bureau) as well.
The Vasayo offers mostly dietary supplements, including:
CBD One: Organic compliant CBD oil
V-Tox: A mix of fulvic acid and cleansing herbs
Eternal: An age-defying antioxidant supplement
Core Complete: Daily multivitamin and
Renew: Spray for joint health
Neuro: Cognitive enhancement caps
V-Slim: Weight management supplement
V3: Energy-boosting and mood supplement
MicroLife Sleep: A supplement for sleep
With every product, you will get a downloadable PDF file that
lists the ingredients used to make it.
One thing that makes Vasayo products unique is the lipsomes
content. Liposomes are used for specific
oral delivery of some nutritional and dietary supplements. It increases the bioavailability
and absorption of these supplements, making these products even more effective.
If people get promised results, Vasayo would become one of
the MLM companies, genuinely offering unique products that are worth their

A few things about Vasayo: Did you know these?
Here are a few important things you should know before
deciding upon Vasayo:
Vasayo’s products are legitimate
Vasayo’s products are backed up by legitimate science. The
liposomal delivery method is another positive point. Studies demonstrate the
ingredients Vasayo uses provide health benefits.
Dallin and Karree Larsen also founded another MLM, MonaVie,
which was linked to false advertising, bankruptcy, and copyright infringement.
Could you trust such founders with a bad reputation?
No income disclosure statement
There is no official Income Disclosure Statement on the
But we want to know what their brand partners are receiving
in commission. Don’t you? I do!
Commission rates are low
The commission rate is capped at 20%, which is very low
compared to other MLMs. It clearly suggests you won’t be making so much money.
No exclusive products
Vasayo doesn’t license its products exclusively. Second, liposomal
delivery technology is not patented. This means you can get products from other
brands at a reduced price, which is another challenge for brand partners.
Vasayo: Pros and Cons
Sells legitimate products that claim to improve the
quality of life.
Apart from moneymaking opportunities, you can
earn lifestyle trips, team commissions, and multiple business centers.
It is a part of the huge and ever-growing
industry: health and wellness.
Vasayo products are very expensive.
The earning potential is less compared to many top
The supplements don’t appear to have any
supporting clinical evidence.
Verdict – Is
Vasayo Legit or Scam?
Vasayo is legit, and the company sells science-backed
products. But as with the majority of MLMs, you must recruit many people to
make money. It involves a lot of direct recruiting and product selling. No
income disclosure statement means you can’t have any idea about how much you
But the company claims that they offer unique products with many
health benefits. They also provide customer support and a money-back guarantee.
So I can’t call Vasayo a scam or a legit long-term earning
But I can say it is like other MLM companies. That means if
you successfully market and sell their products, you can grow and earn more income.
The company’s product line is solid, but health claims are
not backed by clinical evidence. Moreover, as with most businesses, you gain
what you invest in.
