Have you been approached to join Juice Plus+ MLM Program? If you have tried the product or currently someone who purchases Juice Plus+ as a dietary supplement, chances are that someone has approached you to see if you want to become a Juice Plus distributor.
That is because the best way that your distributor can make money selling Juice Plus is by having others join the program with them to sell Juice Plus as well.
I will be honest with you, I am not a big fan of MLM programs. It seems that the only people making money are the people at the very top. Let me share with you some general information about Juice Plus along what is involved to be a Juice Plus distributor and if you can really make any money selling Juice Plus.
What Is Juice Plus+
Juice Plus provides dietary supplements that contain concentrated fruit and vegetable juice extracts that are fortified with added vitamins and nutrients. They are made from more than 40 different fruits, vegetables and grains that support a healthy diet by providing a wider variety of vitamins, antioxidants and phytonutrients.
You can purchase the product in capsules, chewables or a beverage mix for shakes. They are only sold in 4-month supply quantities, where the capsules will cost around $75 per month, the chewables are around $76 per month and the beverage mix comes with 60 servings for $35 per month.
Juice Plus is produced by Natural Alternatives International in San Marcos, California and since 1993 has been distributed by National Safety Associates (NSA) through multi-level marketing.
There is no evidence that it actually offers health benefits, but if you feel better using the product, that is all that matters.
How To Join Juice Plus MLM Program
Juice Plus states that you can join their MLM program with just 3 simple steps.
Step 1 Training From Our Support Team – You will be expected to be a customer that is using the Juice Plus product before being able to sell their product. They want you to experience the healthful benefits of Juice Plus products firsthand and fully embrace their products before joining their team.
Step 2 Submit An Application – Let your Juice Plus Representative know you are interested in becoming a representative. They will be thrilled, since they will make money from all the sales that you have and it will help them reach higher commission levels.
Submit your application with a $50 application fee. I have found published from many sources that there is an annual fee that is required, but I could not find any information through Juice Plus stating that.
Step 3 Follow Our Proven System – This is supposed to be simple with your Indenpendent Virtual Franchisee and corporate support team.
Juice Plus also states that they provide sales support with a personalized website, iPad apps, and they handle all order processing, shipping, billing and collection.
The following are the steps for success with their company according to Juice Plus.
Juice Plus Compensation Plan
There are three levels of members within the Juice Plus program.
Community Member – This is made up of individuals who join to save money on their own products and/or sell the products to others. They are not building a team below them. In order to earn a 6% commission at this level, you would need sales of $500 in 30 days through your own orders and at least 2 other households.
If you don’t reach that level of sales, you can still earn on the retail sales. You would earn the difference between your cost and what the product is sold for. A sale of the 4-month supply of capsules would earn you $39.
Team Builders – I would consider a Team Builder someone who plans on really promoting Juice Plus and someone who plans on trying to make a real income.
There are 2 levels of Team Builders and they differ by the amount of sales you have each month and the number of recruits you have brought into the company.
The first level is the Virtual Franchisee. They have an opportunity to earn a 14% commission, but would need at least 1 new team member and have at least 8 households that they are selling to. There will be a certain sales requirement needed as well.
The second level is the Sales Coordinator. They have an opportunity to earn a 22% commission, but need at least 3 team members of which 1 must be a direct distributor and 2 must be a level of Virtual Franchisee. There will be a certain sales requirement needed as well.
Organization Builders – These are Team Builders who have developed a sizable sales organization. Very few people ever make it to this level.
Bonuses are available for each of the levels, but there is a requirement of sales volume, number of team members below you and the time frame to get it done is between 30 days to 6 months depending on the level. Bonuses run between $100 to $600.
You can watch the Juice Plus compensation video for more information if you are interested. I have covered most of the items of importance from the video above.
Can You Make Money With Juice Plus MLM Program
The Juice Plus MLM program really isn’t any different from any of the other numerous MLM programs that are available. There is a fee to join, you need to sell products and you need to recruit others to be part of your team selling successfully also, in order for you to make any money.
The only people that make any money with an MLM company are the people at the very top. Most people will actually lose money working for a MLM business or make a very minimal amount.
The chart below is a summary of 2017 United States earnings. This information is directly from Juice Plus on their website. (Juice Plus hasn’t shared anything more recent than 2017.) Let me just point out a few important items.
- Over 50% of members don’t even earn $300 in a full year.
- The largest number of representatives are in the Virtual Franchisee and their average yearly earnings are less than $1200.
- There is only 1 position that makes an actual living wage, which is the National Marketing Director.
- None of these earnings take into consideration any of your expenses, like fee to join or the products that you need to continue to purchase for yourself.
Should You Join Juice Plus MLM Program
My opinion would be not to become a member of Juice Plus MLM Program. There are large promises of bonuses, commissions and other rewards, but the reality that you can see from their earning chart, is that most people don’t make a real income becoming a Juice Plus distributor.
Over 80% of the people that have joined made less than $1200 for an entire year. That is not enough money to live on, and surely not worth the amount of time you would have to invest to try and earn enough to survive on.
