Nerium is a new direct to consumer company to hit the world of network marketing. Their flagship product is a skin cream applied to your face before you go to bed that is derived from The Nerium Plant and supposed to get rid of wrinkles, scarring, skin damage, etc. I was impressed enough by this company's story along with their before and after pictures that I thought I would do some due diligence regarding the company and their products. Not to mention their company owner Jeff Olsen is an icon in The world of Direct Selling and is a much sought after trainer and consultant within the industry. He has also probably written the most important book ever seen by our industry "The Slight Edge". I even took the plunge and spoke with Jeff personally and got some product to try out, while doing my due diligence. Unfortunately, I did not see the results after 30 days, that I thought or hoped that I might in a skin care product. I think I was happier with the results I had seen from other products, but the convenience of this product was superb, although getting past the smell did take a few applications. On a brighter note, I was very pleased with their packaging and branding (looks awesome!). Jeff obviously knows how to build and even in a bad economy people still need and want to look good.
The Nerium compensation plan looks to be a 3 X 3 uni-level type plan, very similar to one of my favorite plans in the industry - Visalus. The only real difference I could find between Nerium and Visalus' comp plan was that Nerium pays out a few levels deeper when you hit the top of the pay plan and offers a Lexus car program instead of The BMW Program offered by Visalus (except Visalus allows you to opt for the $300 Cash bonus vs. car & Nerium does not). What does this mean for someone joining Nerium? It simply means that if you invest in the $500 Biz Builder Package you will qualify for all commissions, and The Lexus Car Program - if you don't you will be leaving lots of money on the table, but still be rewarded for your efforts. With their compensation plan you will also be rewarded for obtaining customers - now isn't that a great idea. The comp plan is not too bottom or top heavy, so a new person could come in and start making money within their first few days in the business.
I like the look and feel of Nerium and think as they begin to grow their business to include more than their night skin cream - by adding cleansers, astringents, eye cream, etc, that they will continue to see growth from loyal customers and distributors.
The downside I see to Nerium is they have a ton of competition in skin care as skin care is a multi-billion dollar industry and many MLM Companies that have been around for awhile are already secure in that space (Nuskin, Arbonne, and Mary Kay). But Mr. Olsen also heads the research and management side of the business Nerium Biotechnology, Inc. Mr. Olsen has wisely surrounded himself with his close family and a team of corporate members that are well equipped, well known, knowledgeable, and poised for growth.. With that being said Nerium is a start up and the reality is that there is a huge risk/reward situation with any start up. A start up can be lucrative IF you get on a solid team early but there is no guarantee the company will be around in 5 years.
If you are a risk taker and like start-ups go for it. Keep in mind that your results will depend upon your ability to market, attract customers, and distributors to your business. If you feel that you lack the experience necessary to succeed in a brand new company or that maybe you don't have the risk factor for a start up than take a look at my company which has seen double digit growth over the past 20 months, 7 years old, and is completely debt free. http://www.thehomebiz4you.com
