Multilevel marketing companies like Kyani have appealed to masses mainly because their compensation plans are designed in a way to make you think you’ll be reaping huge piles of cash. They often have mediocre products which are there to avoid being tagged as another pyramid scheme. Yet, nobody joins because of overpriced coffee, slimming drinks or even vitamins. People join because recruiting others will give them plenty of commission.
I won’t be speaking against it, for the most part, if I’ve never tried it myself. After joining a couple of MLMs in the past, I can say with absolute conviction that more often than not, it doesn’t work. But hey, I know some friends who make a decent living from it, but not everyone’s cut out for it. Selling the products is one thing but recruiting is a whole different story. Some have the knack for it which makes it easy for them to bring in friends but others just don’t have enough luck.
WHAT IS KYANI?
Founded more than 10 years ago, Kyani is a company that focuses on incorporating superfoods like Alaskan Blueberries into their drinks and supplements to increase wellness and good health.
THE ‘MIRACULOUS’ PRODUCTS
I did mention mediocre products earlier but Kyani decided to create hype with theirs. They claim their supplements contain ingredients which are vital in treating basically anything – from cancer to diabetes. From what I could gather (with all their medical mumbo jumbo), they just became the answer to most of the world’s health problems. Lol, just kidding. Anyway, in typical MLM fashion, you’ll likely end up spending more than what you can potentially earn.
This is just one of the many packs you can choose from by the way but this is the most basic. It contains their three main products – Sunrise, Sunset and Nitro FX.
But again, few people are here for the supplements. What we’d like to know is how the compensation plan works. Here it is:
It’s not self-explanatory. Yep, we need a Kyani representative to explain all these to us.
SOME ISSUES I FOUND
- Claims of easy money: Just because it works for someone doesn’t mean it works for everybody else. Getting involved in MLM doesn’t just require money, you need skills to recruit others. Nobody relies on the products alone no matter how decent they may be.
- Supplements: The ones selling are not doctors – they are just here to make money remember? So they’ll tell you it can cure whatever ails you and that is the problem right there. What if that person is currently taking other medications and the supplements end up messing with the intended effects of the medicine? What if those supplements themselves are contraindicated for that person? They should be reminded to consult with their physician before taking anything.
- Refusing refunds: Kyani supposedly has a 30-day money back guarantee but there are various complaints lodged online about the company not giving out some of the refunds.
Kyani is not a scam but it’s also not the best MLM company out there. Decent products? Yes. Decent compensation plan? Yes. No downsides? Absolutely not. There are certain grey areas especially with the products (some people claim it has vastly improved their health while others adamantly pointed out it did nothing to them) but at the end of the day, it’s still up to you. We can’t deny the fact that majority of the money from these MLMs come from the recruitment and if you believe you have what it takes, go for it. But take note, if you’re looking for a long-term and sustainable income, this is not it.
