Home-Based Marketing Opportunity, Get Rich or Get Ditched?

The nutritional reformation in the society today provides a great venue for you to stay healthy while also enjoying the full financial potential available in the industry, since you can work hard but still provide your body with the essential nutrients through healthful supplements.

Usana Health Sciences came into being as a skin care and weight management products’ manufacturer in 1992 through the perseverance of Dr. Myron Wentz, its founder. Aside from the Usana vitamins and other optimum health that their products can bring, they also offer a home-based marketing strategy, which they claim can provide you wealth. If you want to venture on this marketing plan, you should initially look for Usana reviews that can help you decide whether this business opportunity is right for you.

Usana reviews will also give you substantial information if there are people who really compensate from the network marketing scheme that Usana proffers. To give you an idea how the home-based business plan works, you must understand that Usana for the most part, markets its products that include essentials, optimizers and macro-optimizers through a network of distributors, who work independently. When you become a distributor, you can recruit other independent sellers to join under your team.

How to Earn Money in Usana

The fundamental key on how to earn money in Usana is by purchasing products at wholesale costs and distributing them in retail prices. Though, the more lucrative procedure to earn huge sum is by recruiting more and more people in your team. When you have enough people under you, all the products that they will sell will benefit you as well.

The basic Usana compensation plan is executed by developing your right and left team, which are commonly referred to as the downlines. You will be compensated when your downlines hit specific levels depending on the volumes of products sold. For instance, when the right and left players in your downlines reach one thousand points each, you will be granted with a commission of $300.

Our Review of Usana

Though, some Usana reviews delineate that the compensation package associated with this marketing strategy is not as delightful as it appears to be, you must remember that there is no easy way in earning money aside from giving adequate time and effort, so you can harvest the fruits of your hard work.

Other people may not be beguiled with the business opportunity that Usana proposes, but some people already found their treasure as Usana distributor. If you want to know how to become successful in your Usana business venture, you must fully understand the intricacies associated with it.

Usana can get you rich if you have lots of friends, relatives or acquaintances that you can employ under your downline. You must be very resolute and determined if you want to be compensated enough because you need to sell the products that Usana markets. The success of your Usana business undertaking will depend on the performance of your team players, so be sure that you will attend the product parties, home presentations, hotel presentations and company sponsored training programs together with your team for your advantage.

Usana will ditch you, if you are looking for a quick money scheme, if you’re too shy to recruit and sell products to people and if you don’t take the Usana business opportunity seriously.

      To be honest, I have just joined Usana a week ago not wanting to earn any money or making a business at all. I have joined purely for the autos ship price and the free membership promotion. My little niece and nephew have really bad skin allergy and have tried many cream/special diet without success. After just 4 days of taking the fish oil and kids vitamins, their skin have greatly improved!

      That's when I wanted to try Usana's vitamins. I have been taking the Essential and Proflavanol C for just 5 days and can feel a big difference. My skin is a lot smoother and I have more energy.

      I am not sure whether Usana's business model is a scam or not but I would definitely recommend their supplements.

      IS this supposed to be a negative website against USANA. All the reviews are positive! I have been taking the products for 6 years and know that my health of me and my family has improved every year. We do spend money on our health products but we do not spend money on health insurance and doctor's visits. It is the best spent health insurance and care that we can buy and we know that it is making a difference. I am also involved in the business aspect and I would not be very smart if I was not. I have been able to get my usana products paid for, from the early on, and I cannot say that for my health insurance ( now that is the scam!) How much money a month do you spend on health insurance and still have to pay a co pay when you visit the doctor. Health insurance will not pay for your health supplements so they certainly will not pay you back, for your health insurance, when you start taking care of yourself. know the real scams

      I love love love pure rest by usana! I seriously thought for the longest time I had a sleeping disorder! I love to sleep but for some reason everynight I would never be able to fall asleep I would toss and turn and even when I would have to wake up early everyday nothing would make me be able to sleep until I tried pure rest! just two tablets before bed and as soon as I hit my head to the pillow I fall right asleep.. and waking up with out the morning grawgeeness from either night-quil or tylonel pm is always a plus=-)

      I enjoyed reading your review. I personally use USANA's vitamins and I enjoy taking them. I currently help USANA's sales force find success through a training site and USANA's representatives are making great profits. This company isn't a scam, its a great opportunity and the products are great as well.

      The products are good with science to back it; but doing the ' Rah Rah ' with high energy music while calling friends family and strangers is tough. You have a better chance at being an actor, the rejection is the same and more people are open to Hollywood than another MLM out of Salt Lake. Yes, some people have made it and big, and some culture do network better than others; that's why the Asian market took off. Great for those who have thick skin and weather many anwering machines, too busy's and closed doors and minds. Like I said, good products for the money. You get what you pay for, and if your that cheap to spend on your body then go back to fast food lane.

      To succeed, one must be self-motivated, devoted, and determined, no doubt about that. But the key of all is your team leader! You may become successful if your leader knows how to manage everything, your leader must know when and how to sacrifice for the team, etc. That is why most do not succeed in this type of business, not just Usana. In fact, Usana has one of the best systems. If you can't harvest in Usana business, I doubt you can get anything elsewhere! Training materials are available everywhere, you don't have to attend big seminars like other companies do, at least our team doesn't. I hate meetings, especially those paid ones, and Usana don't have those. You only need to have team gatherings maybe once a week or two to maintain team members' enthusiasm. That's all!

      Like any network marketing business, I learned that to be a success, people do have to be dedicated, self-motivated and willing to learn. It’s not a ‘career’ for people who are half-hearted – you do have to have trust and belief in the industry, the company, the products and you do have to love helping other people succeed, to become successful yourself.

      I have been with Usana for over 9 years.

      Usana does NOT ditch people if you are looking for a quick money scheme, if you’re too shy to recruit and sell products to people and if you don’t take the Usana business opportunity seriously.

      USANA's Pure Rest™ Melatonin product is over priced. USANA charges its distributors 13.3 cents per mg per tablet. They claim the product is "pharmaceutical grade synthetic melatonin".

      However, 17 miles from USANA's headquarters is a company that also sells pharmaceutical grade synthetic melatonin. The only difference: their product retails for 2.6 cents per mg per tablet.
