Should you become a part of the Zurvita Home based business? Let this review help you decide.
I am going to share with you some pros and cons of Zurvita, and then introduce you to the main Zurvita products. But more importantly, I am going to talk to you about what you really need to do, to make this sort of home based business work in your favor.
Towards the end of my review, there will be 3 Key points that will be highlighted. I believe that you need to consider these before signing up with Zurvita. If these 3 points tick your checklist, then you’re good to go!
THE PROS AND CONS OF THE ZURVITA BUSINESS
- Products are within a popular niche (the health sector)
- Member of DSA(Direct Selling Association)
- Limited to certain countries
- Need a Zurvita Consultant’s ID to sign up to the business or even purchase products.
- Products are expensive
- Products are within a competitive market
THE ZURVITA PRODUCTS- Are They Any Different?
Before I show you how the Zurvita business works, let me introduce you to the company’s product portfolio.
There are basically three main categories that make up the company’s product line.
They are as follows,
(1) ZEAL Nutritional Supplements
(2) Protein Shakes
(3) Zurvita Weight Management Products
Are the Zurvita Products expensive?
The Zeal For Life comes in both a ‘Classic’ and ‘Vegan’ version. The company claims that the vegan version is gluten-free and meets the Kosher and vegan standards.
The powdered formula will cost you $74.95 whilst the 24-day single serving pack costs $104.95. Please note that these are the regular customer prices, and are exclusive of taxes and shipping fees.
The company claims that these are “food based” supplements consisting of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, phytonutrients and more.
Whether they work or not, I think the verdict boils down to the individuals themselves.
If you try these products out and they work for you, then great! Remember, it’s not a case where it will work for everyone!
Walking into a health store will give you an idea of the tons of products available out there, that claim to “give vibrancy and good health.” If you had to do some research, you would find that there may be cheaper alternatives available compared to the Zurvita products.
I am not saying that Zurvita products do not work or that you should not buy it.
I am merely pointing out the fact that people have a lot of choices nowadays when it comes to buying products. And the price would certainly play an important role as the deciding factor, wouldn’t you agree?
Here are the prices of the Zurvita protein and weight management products.
THE ZURVITA COMPENSATION PLAN
I feel that one of the most important things that will help you to determine whether the Zurvita business is for you, is to take a look at their compensation plan.
Well up to this point, you have a general idea of what the products are all about. The compensation plan, will help make it clearer to you as to what is required of you to build this business from the ground up.
You need to have money for:
1. Your registration expense- to become a Zurvita consultant, you would need to pay a joining fee of $39.95 (you get a welcome kit).
2. You need to keep stock on hand– This is to get interested prospects to try out the products. Should they enjoy the products, then you can start selling it to them and begin earning some retail profits. This is where you can earn up to 20% in profits.
Allow me to show you what is being taught, regarding how to grow the Zurvita business.
There are 3 phases that makes up the Zurvita Business plan.
Phase One: All Star Program-30 Days
Phase Two: Team Bonuses
Phase Three: Residual Income
Phase One : All Star Program
The way to succeed in the first phase is to,
- Get customers interested in trying out the product,
- Then get two business partners to join your downline, and
- Teach your downline how to duplicate this process.
Of interest, when you get partners to join, you would qualify for free products. Apparently, if you can get 3 customers, you also get the following for free:
- Your Website,
- Z-Centre Back office,
- Mobile app, and
- Success on demand
Should these customers activate the Zeal Loyalty program, you will earn a $30 acquisition bonus for each of the customers within your first month.
If those customers renew the next month, you can earn an additional $50 renewal bonus for each customer loyalty pack that they purchase.
Bottom line: the more customer loyal packs that you sell, the more money you can earn.
Phase Two: The Team Bonus Program
To build this part of the business, you need two people who are serious about building the business. This means that they need to commit themselves to purchasing a “Builders Pak.”
You will get a 20% Builders Bonus on the Bonus volume of each pak that you sell. Naturally, you would want to build your downline, so you need to train your partners to build their downline.
As your business partners get their business partners, you would find people below also purchasing business paks and products.
You would then starting accumulating Business Volume points within your overall downline.
If you can get 600 business volume points on each side of your downline, you would get a total of 1200TBV (Total Business Volume), which qualifies you for your first team bonus of $200.
Bottom Line: The more 1200 TBV you can get, the more team bonuses of $200 you would receive.
Phase Three: Residual Income
This phase works on the principle that as you recruit, your business partners recruit and their partners recruit and so forth, then, in theory, your network should grow exponentially….
The more points you earn, the higher your ranking status grows within the business.
For example, when you first started out, you were at the Business Consultant Level. Then when you purchased a business pak, you went onto the Managing Consultant Level.
When your business volume reaches 3000 business volume points, you are then promoted to the rank of Senior Consultant.
When your business volume reaches 6000, you are promoted to the rank of Premier Consultant.
At this level you would receive a Rank Bonus of $500.
Every rank that you advance to from here onward would attract a ranks bonus.
There are various ranks, the highest rank being the Ambassador Rank where you would receive a $3000 bonus.
At the higher levels you would also qualify for overrides and infinity bonuses as well.
IS THE ZURVITA BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU?
Remember, at the beginning of this article I mentioned that I will show you 3 Key points that you need to consider before you join this business.
Here they are:
- Is the Training adequate?
- Are the Products going to be easy to sell?
- Are you ready to recruit?
1. Is the Training at Zurvita enough to get you to succeed?
Upon sign up you will receive a welcome kit.
In terms of the marketing of your business, the main items that I think that stands out in this kit are, the Zeal Party DVD and Zurvita Success system brochure.
With respect to the building of the business, they talk about holding Zeal parties, where you invite 3-5 friends and get them to try out your samples and watch a Zurvita promotional video. You also have the opportunity of taking your prospects to success summits and conventions.
They also talk about 3-way calling. This is a case where you have an experienced person helping the new Zurvita Consultant get their prospect comfortable with the business model.
Is this enough to grow your business?
So, you made your list of people you think would be interested in looking at the business.
How do you look for more people?
Sure, the company gives you your very own generic marketing website. But then again, there are many other consultants who have the same site.
How do you stand out amongst the crowd? Posting your website links all over social media, will not easily get you business?
2. Products may be Tough to Market
In my opinion, the products are within a saturated market. I believe that they are not something truly unique compared to what is already on our shelves.
I am not saying that they do not work. Like any business, not everyone will buy from you. So, you may get rejections along the way.
If people love the samples, then you are on your way.
3. Recruiting is KEY
It’s pretty clear from the compensation plan above, that the more folks you get to sign up to the business, the more successful you would be.
If you are good at Sales and Marketing, then by all means go ahead and give this business a go.
If you are someone who DOES NOT like recruiting or calling people up, then perhaps, this would not be a great option for you.
There you have it, those are the three main points that you need to consider.
Are you okay with the training aspect of Zurvita?
What about the selling of their products? Do you have a plan in place and have people in mind whom you think would buy from you on a consistent basis, in order to generate a decent income?
Most importantly. are YOU ready for the recruiting part?
If Zurvita is not for You-Don’t Stress
If you happy with all the above, then all the best with this business.
If, on the other hand, you are not too keen to do this, then let me show you a business that:
- is free to start right away,
- does not involve any recruiting or cold calling,
- allows you build it in your own time without having to leave your armchair,
- is built upon your own passion or interest
- is perfect for beginners and has top-notch training and support.
May You Have Tons of Success in whichever path you choose, whether it be starting a Zurvita Home Based business or an online business of your own.
