As the new year approaches, you may be looking for the best mlm to join in 2019.
The beginning of a new year is a great time to start building a direct sales or network marketing business.
At this time of year, you’re probably focused on change in your life.
That natural focus is shared by many and can translate into more sales and more people joining your team.
It’s also a time when distributors who aren’t resonating with their current company begin to think about finding a new company. But before you assume your mlm isn’t the right one and start looking for the next best mlm, take some time to consider if moving is the right choice.
The hard truth is, the skills necessary to build a business are the same skills in every company.
You move product and you recruit reps. If you’re having a hard time doing those things, changing companies may not be the right move.
However, if you’re looking to join an mlm because you’ve never been in the industry and want to give it a shot, or if you have “irreconcilable differences” with your current company, then finding the absolute best mlm is a must.
Picking the right company can be difficult and confusing.
In this article we’ll explore what we believe is the best mlm to join in 2019 and why.
What is the Best MLM for 2019
Currently, we think the best mlm opportunity right now is Vasayo.
Granted, we may be a little bias since we are involved in that company, but we’ll lay out why we think that and let you decide for yourself.
We were in (and made money in) the network marketing industry in the past. When we decided to get involved again, we wanted to make sure it was with an company that had all of the key indicators of a promising opportunity.
Below are a few reasons we feel this is the greatest opportunity available right now and why we chose to join.
#1) Experienced Leadership
Dallin Larsen is the CEO of the company. He’s got the right heart, the right attitude, and the right long term vision.
If you’ve never heard of Dallin, he’s built two successful companies in the past so the experience is there.
Just like any other company or leader out there, you can find bad press and tons of opinions on what was good or bad about Dallin and his previous companies.
Yes, he’s made some mistakes, but who hasn’t? I know I have. Ask anybody in the mortgage or real estate industry if they made mistakes and any honest person will tell you yes.
We make most of our decisions based on what we think will happen, that’s what people do.
Dallin is a person, therefore he made mistakes (yes, owners are people too).
When we got started in this company, I had the opportunity to sit down with a small group of people and Dallin to hear his vision for the company. Based on that conversation alone, I firmly believe he learned from his mistakes and wants to make Vasayo his legacy.
He has a heart for the distributors and started the company to help people (i.e. he doesn’t need the money). I genuinely believe he entered the network marketing arena again specifically to change lives and build a legacy.
That’s important to me because it means I can build something sizable and meaningful, knowing it will be around far into the future. It also means I can have confidence when I bring people into my organization.
Here’s a little about Dallin and Karree Larsen in their own words.
As far as negative press goes, every company has it.
I”m a pragmatic person. I like to think of myself as a thinker. I know typing something with a negative connotation into google will give me negative information.
Some of that information is accurate, some is not.
Google is a computer, an algorithm.
Google is not designed to be a source of accurate information, it’s designed to give you the most popular information based on your request (what you search for). In fact, it’s whole algorithm is based on popularity and marketing.
The more clicks a website gets and the longer somebody is on a page, the higher that page ranks.
We all know that negativity sells, just look at the news. That’s why negativity about network marketing dominates the first page search results on Google. The worst the headline… the more clicks it gets.
Remember, Google strives to always give you what you want, not necessarily what is accurate.
To prove this point I typed into the Google search box “mother Teresa is a scam artist”.
These results showed up on the first page.
My point is, research is good. But when researching online, try to be a selective and discerning when it comes to what you find.
Just because somebody says it… scratch that,… just because somebody created a website or video, doesn’t make it true or accurate.
#2) The Right Timing
One of the most important factors in getting started with a company is the timing.
Before I get too far into this one, I want to address one of the misconceptions of network marketing. It’s often said that the people who get in early make the most money.
For the most part, this appears to be true, but not for the reasons you think.
There are thousands of people who get into companies every week during a “pre-launch” stage of a company and still don’t make money.
Since a legitimate network marketing company isn’t a pyramid, getting in early doesn’t help if you’re not willing to work.
The reason people who get in early seem to make the most money is because they’ve been doing it longer (imagine that – oh the horror).
The top earners are typically those who have been working it since inception and didn’t quit; because of that, they have the biggest teams and move the most product… hence… they make the most money.
It has to do with production, not timing. That’s the reason they’re making more. They’ve produced more.
On another note, this industry has evolved and it’s quite possible to pass your upline in rank and/or earnings. I’ve passed plenty of people in my upline in regard to income and I once had a personal enrollment pass me.
I’m very competitive, so naturally, I don’t want that to happen again. However, it’s quite possible.
The “S” Curve & 3 Stages of an MLM
What does matter when it comes to timing? The “S curve”.
The “S” curve is an important factor of timing in a network marketing company. This industry is young, so there isn’t a lot of data about businesses over long periods of time.
One thing we do know though, is that successful companies typically go through a few different phases of growth.
Phase 1: Formulation and Foundation Stage
In this stage, network marketing companies are finding their footing. They are looking for leaders, developing flagship products, tweaking their compensation plan, and working out the kinks of distribution.
Many new companies don’t make it out of this phase.
Phase 2: Growth Stage
Once a company has successfully created some quality products and have a systematic process in place to support customers and distributors, they will naturally evolve into the growth stage.
From what I’ve seen, this stage can last for just a few months or years. But once a company enters this stage, the chances they will go out of business decreases dramatically.
This is also the best time to get involved with a company. Your risk is lower because they’ve already worked out their products, compensation, distribution, and profitability. There is less chance they’ll go broke and you’ll lose everything.
They have solid and systematic foundation in place to support fast growth.
In addition, your upside potential for quick growth is increased because you’re involved before the brand is a household name and before the coveted “S” curve stage.
Phase 3: Rapid & Phenomenal “Hockey Stick” Growth (S Curve)
There’s almost always a season of phenomenal growth in any network marketing company that makes it through the first 2 stages.
During phase 3, belief, excitement, and momentum are at their highest and help drive exceptional growth.
In business, this is referred to as an “S curve”. For example, if you’re investing in a stock, you always want to invest as close to the bottom of the S curve as possible.
In network marketing, getting in at the beginning of the S curve is similar to buying a stock before it goes through the roof. The difference, in my opinion, is that an S curve in an mlm is a bit easier to predict than an S curve in stock prices.
Anywho, phase 3 growth is when there’s momentum across the board in a company and growth is happening at a ridiculous pace.
Getting in during this period of rapid growth is great, but being in before it starts to happen is even better.
Call it what you want, but human psychology lends itself to frenzy. Just look at the real estate market, the DotCom boom, block-chain technology, and crypto-currency to name a few.
When human emotion and psychology reach their peak in network marketing, people are sometimes carried past their capacity as a leader because of the undercurrent of momentum flowing through the company.
Simply put, they go a lot further, a lot faster, and a lot easier than they could have without this stage.
It’s very exciting stuff!
It seems to me, Vasayo will be entering into this stage very, very soon. When it does, because of the combined experience of the distributors and the executive team, it will be a period of rapid and extraordinary growth.
If you’re looking for the best mlm to join in 2019, you don’t want to miss this opportunity!
This will be the period when ordinary people will be promoted to 6, 7, and 8 figure earners and lives will be changed forever!
Phase 3 is the most exciting time of any network marketing business for me because I personally want to help as many people as possible change the financial legacy they leave for their family.
I know average people can leverage the S curve that’s created in phase 3 to help them change their financial future!
This stage happens after the rapid and phenomenal growth subsides.
Growth slows and stabilizes. Excitement weans and leaders get comfortable. In fact, the length of the S curve and phase 3 depend somewhat on the vision of the leaders pushing the movement.
Once they hit their goals and vision, they tend to lose some of their drive.
That’s another reason why an experienced CEO is so important. They know how to keep this fire burning longer.
The CEO must know when adding extra incentives and products will help (and not hurt) growth among the distributor base.
I’d like to note here that if phase 3 has come and gone in a company, it doesn’t change the fact that any person can create individual momentum in their personal organization and still create abundance in their business.
It’s just much harder to get synergy with other cross-line teams in the company because the essence of phase 3 is that there are multiple teams creating momentum at the same time.
This is hard to manufacture and happens organically as the company grows.
This growth and excitement, company wide, fuels more growth and excitement. It’s the nature of human psychology applied to business.
#3) The Right Upline
Another reason Vasayo is the best mlm to join in 2019 is that the upline (like the corporate leadership) is experienced and has a deep desire to help people financially, emotionally, and spiritually.
You can have the nicest upline in the world, but if they don’t know what they’re doing or have never done it before, they’re not much help to you.
It’s harsh… but true.
In addition, if you’ve been following us for any length of time, you know that we place tremendous value in finding a company and upline that’s congruent with your core beliefs.
The video of the Larsens (above) and Ricky (below) will give you a firm idea of whether this company lines up with your core values.
Here’s a snippet from one of our upline leaders (Ricky Untermeyer) in which he explains the importance of always getting back up.
Hopefully, it will encourage you, but also give you a sense of our teams core values if you were to lock arms with us, roll up your sleeves, and start working on your dreams.
#4) Great Products with Recurring Revenue
Okay, if you’re offended easily by thinking that is different from yours, you may want to skip this section because not everyone agrees with me on this.
So here goes.
Every company claims to have the best products. Ever heard these lines?…
– People need our products
– These products sell themselves
– We don’t sell, we just share
I could go on and on. The fact is, none of it matters and the last two statements aren’t even true.
Yes, I believe people need our products. So what. Need and want are two different things.
Want is what matters. Nobody needs McDonalds, but tons of people want it, so the company makes money like bees make honey. Nobody needs Facebook… but everybody wants it… so the same results occur.
I have an abundance mindset. As long as a company creates and puts out great products attached to a good compensation plan, you can make your dreams a reality within this industry.
The fact is, most reputable MLM companies have high quality products.
One of the benefits of not having to pay for advertising is that they have more money for product development, so inevitably they have higher quality products.
That being said, you should ask if their products pass the 2-prong litmus test below:
- Are they products people want?
- Are they consumable products?
Both these things are equally important.
Vasayo has developed product lines that people want within the health and wellness space.
Products with probiotics (huge demand right now), weight management (always in huge demand), sleep supplements, energy supplements, etc.
They have products people want and their products are consumable.
Consumability (if that’s a word) and re-order are how you create residual income.
I’ve always struggled with my weight. In the last 2 months I’ve lost 25 lbs. using their weight loss supplement without exercise (and I’m still losing weight). Do you think I’m going to stop using that product?
Um… I think not! My wife would kill me. So I automatically reorder.
Don’t underestimate the power of quality consumable products!
I know many people who have dropped thousands of dollars to get started in companies that sell either non-consumable products (clothing) or products that take months or years to consume (make-up).
Non-consumables make it unnecessarily difficult for you (the distributor) to create residual income.
You need products that are consumed and re-ordered each and every month. That way, you don’t need to keep selling new stuff to people or finding new customers.
Vasayo passes the 2-prong litmus test with flying colors.
#5) Binary Compensation Plan
Before reading this section, just understand that this is a basic overview. Explaining a compensation plan in words on a page (in one section) of a blog post is nearly impossible, but hopefully this will give you an overview.
Also (Legal Disclaimer):
***The opinions set forth in the following section and all sections of this website are the opinions of myself and me alone. I take no responsibility for any legal ramifications of these opinions and/or accuracy of information. You should do your own due diligence before making any buying decisions (Judge Judy… I hope that covers me).
Amway basically started this whole multi-level marketing (MLM) thing. They were the pioneers of the industry and since then so many things have changed.
The world has changed.
Technology has changed.
How products are distributed has changed.
Compensation plans have changed.
Ford created the Model-T. But we aren’t all driving around in Model-T’s because of innovations in the car sector.
I mean, cars have come a long way and continue to do so… just look at the Tesla.
The same thing is true of network marketing compensation plans.
Innovations have occurred that make it possible for ordinary people to earn substantial income.
The binary compensation plan is one of those innovations.
Here’s how it works.
Binary Compensation Plan (In a Nutshell)
Distributors build two teams and two teams only (not 3, not 5, not 10, not ???).
We call these teams legs.
One of those legs you share with your upline. If you have an active upline, this leg will get overflow (people you didn’t put there).
For example, if you were in business with me, anybody I place in business would be placed under you and would benefit both of us in terms of volume calculations for commissions.
I won’t go into this in too much detail.
I’ve posted a video overview below but it still just scratches the surface. The key thing to remember is that you’re only building 2 teams and your volume calculates for infinity.
An important note here (for those of you with experience) is that this doesn’t mean you only enroll two people.
You can still enroll as many people as you want and go as wide as you want.
You’re still awarded credit for those enrollments and the more you enroll in your personal line, the more income you can make.
What it does mean though, is that volume calculates for infinity since there are only 2 teams.
This means you don’t have to worry about a rock star getting into business 8 levels below you and it not helping you because your compensation plan only pays 7 levels deep.
If a rock star gets in 100 levels down and builds a team of 50,000 distributors, you would get full credit for the volume of every single one of those 50,000.
I know… it BLOWS MY MIND!
That is the power of a binary and it’s what makes it possible for average people to make above average incomes.
A compensation plan that requires you to build 5 teams means that the average Joe is NEVER going to make substantial income.
It just won’t happen for the average person with the old compensation models. It’s practically impossible with the old models.
#6) Generous Rewards
The binary compensation model is super important when we’re talking about weekly and team commissions.
But team commissions are only one part of the Vasayo reward plan.
There are other ways to earn money.
- Customer Sales Bonus – Income earned from customer orders
- Product Introduction Bonus – This is a bonus on top of commissions for 1st orders of people you sponsor
- Team Commissions – This is the bread and butter of your income in the beginning (refer to the binary compensation model above)
- Team Commission Matching Bonus- These are bonuses you receive on the success you create in your personal lines of sponsorship. They can dwarf Team Commissions over time and there is no earning cap on these.
- Leadership Bonuses- These are bonuses earned through leadership points earned from a global pool.
- Rank Advancement Bonuses– Bonuses for hitting specific ranks.
- Lifestyle Trips- These are free trips earned by hitting specific ranks.
- Multiple Business Centers– This allows proven team leaders to build more teams in order to diversify and mitigate risk.
Rank Advancement Bonuses That Top the Charts
I want to take a moment here to pause and go into a bit more depth on the rank advancement bonuses offered by Vasayo. These bonuses are most generous rank advancement bonuses in the industry!
Keep in mind, these are on top of the generous compensation rewards outlined above. I’ve heard people say the compensation plan doesn’t matter that much as long as the average person can make money.
If you plan to make just a little extra cash, it’s true. However, if you like the idea of making life changing income, that statement is not accurate.
Imagine you build a profitable business, become a top earner in your company, and find out that you could have made a lot more money doing the same exact work within the context of a different compensation plan.
That would be horrible!
Additionally, if you want to be able to recruit and retain leaders, your compensation plan must reflect recognition for the leaders who produce the most. Recognition in today’s world isn’t just a pat on the back, true recognition comes in the form of $$$.
I come from an education background. You’d be surprised how many good, quality educators leave the profession simply because they can make more money doing something else.
You want to be with a company that recognizes (in the form of direct compensation) it’s leaders. This will become more important to you as begin to rise through the ranks, but also as high caliber people consider joining your team.
Somebody who knows they can produce is going to go to the company who will pay them for that production.
Vasayo offers recognition reward bonuses in the amounts below for top distributors:
These are 1 time bonuses and stack on top of each other. So when you earn the $400,000 bonus, you’ve already earned the 100k and 200k bonuses.
These bonuses are on top of the other commissions and bonuses embedded in the compensation plan.
Keep in mind, by the time you earn bonuses at these levels, they’re just gravy… but it’s good to know there’s a gravy train runnin’.
#7) Divine Calling
If you don’t know our story, here it is in a nutshell.
We were praying for more purpose and more financial options.
God told us to do network marketing.
We argued, pitched a fit, and then finally relented.
So here we are, in the mlm industry. It’s not what we initially wanted, but it looks like it was part of the plan for us and I’m so excited to be back in this industry.
I can’t see what’s out in front.
I don’t know the road ahead.
I guess that’s how faith works.
I don’t know if God plans to bless our business so He can use our finances to help others or if we’re just in this business to lift people up.
Who knows, maybe he led us to this business just to get his message out there.
I try to point the Glory back to Him with this website, my emails, and everything I do.
I believe he works on peoples hearts when they land on this site, people who may be searching for one thing and then decide to check out some other content.
Before you know it, they stumble upon something they weren’t expecting in which I plant a seed in their spirit. God can water those seeds. I’m just happy he’s using me to plant them.
Maybe that’s the whole point, I don’t know for certain.
All I know for sure is that we were directed to get involved and build this business to the best of our abilities, so that’s what we’re doing.
If any of this post made sense to you and you want to get involved…
I invite you to join us.
I can’t promise you anything.
I don’t know the future.
But I can’t wait to talk to you.
It doesn’t matter to me from a financial standpoint what you decide, I’ll be building this business with or without you. But if you’re reading this and made it to the end, I suspect you’d be a good fit for our team.
Until next time, God Bless and I hope you’re actively working on building the life of your dreams.
