LifeVantage Description

LifeVantage is a network marketing company run by it's president and CEO, David Brown. This network marketing program was founded in 2003, and revolves around the sale of anti-aging products. It has a multi-level marketing system in place that allows people to become independent distributors for the products, and to build downline teams from which they can earn ongoing residual income.

LifeVantage Detailed Overview

The people who represent LifeVantage will tell you very enthusiastically that the company's anti-aging products are unique. Their products are clinically researched and formulated to fight the aging process inside and out. For inside, there is their main product, the supplement Protandim, which helps guard the body against free radical damage. For the outside, there is their topical anti-aging skin cream TrueScience. The company claims that its products are scientifically proven and backed by extensive research.

LifeVantage is a publicly traded network marketing company, and it offers anyone who has the drive and the ambition a chance to make an income. Whether that income is full time or part time is up to the individual. You can apply to be a distributor for the company, and if accepted you have to commit to purchasing at least a basic starter kit for $50. If you want to make commissions from selling the products directly or from recruiting others to sell the products, you have to commit to purchasing a monthly package. This is normal for network marketing companies.

Selling the LifeVantage products and recruiting others to sell them are the two ways that you can make money through the company, and these two things are often interchangeable. You can just sell the products for a straight commission, but the real money is in recruiting. When you recruit people to be distributors, you're actually selling monthly prescriptions just like the one you have to buy. You earn monthly commissions from this, and when these people sell products or recruit, you make money through their efforts as well.

LifeVantage Reputation

Feedback on LifeVantage is mixed. On the positive side, the company does pay its distributors and leaders just as it says it will. On the negative side, some people say that the products are overpriced, hard to sell, and despite claims to the contrary, that their benefits are mostly unproven. The products are deemed safe, however, and the bottom line seems to be if you're dedicated enough and know how to sell, you can make decent money through with this company.

Awesome Opportunity

I am a new Distributor. I signed up after attending a meeting and watching a powerful video. Being health conscious myself I know that this product is unique and not expensive compared to other unique health products. I was a little leery of the start up cost of over $700, but what business can you buy for less. One thing I must warn people that are interested in this company about is that they do not allow the use of the Protandim name in any advertisements or safelist. That does hurt the internet saavy marketer. They want this sold face to face. I am going to make the most of this opportunity and see where it leads me.

I sent LifeVantage $9,000 and got back almost nothing

Yup, I joined lifevantage to sell Protandim.

I sent them approx $9,000 Dollars from my bank account, less than 2 months after joining.

I was Promised 9% Commission + Bonus.

I got back less then merchant fees to send them this money!

NOTHING ELSE! So in 3 weeks, I sold almost 200 bottles.

Sold 2 Distributorships, bought 38 websites, contacted companies about test kits, machines, found a couple local doctors to help.

All I got paid for is 1 distributor signup, that does not even cover the cost to send the money to lifevantage.

Merchant Account fees were approx $350 and my Commission for dozens of sales that they did not pay anything and the distributor paid was $250 Approx.

The company is 100% uncooperative, all they care about is selling distributorships, and do not seem to care at all about selling the product. Once you become a distributor for this company, you quickly learn that all of the energy is going to sell distributorship kits, etc. So, you become a "distributor" to sell "Protandim", but you are not allowed to advertise the name "Protandim" anywhere! You cannot advertise it on the Internet, Radio, TV, Print, etc, which makes it impossible to sell it.

They force you to buy a very expensive cream and bottle of Protandim every month, besides what you buy to get any commissions.

They charged be $269 Dollars for that. So If you look at it, I have just been screwed by this company left and right.

There is also a very large discrepancy about the product itself.

Who really created it, etc. They show tests on their website for "Protandim" from 2005 and before, but most of those tests do not contain the same cmx1152 formula that does not exist in the new formula that has been changed a few times.

Therefore, why are they claiming that all those prior tests are valid? Many of their claims on their website are not true, and at best are stretching a small piece of truth into a big fact, when in fact, they may be out right lying to their own distributors, and deceiving the public.

Anytime a company puts all of their energy into selling distributor kits, and not in selling, developing, marketing, building brand recondition for the product, something is wrong.

Thank God I pulled the plug before I lost any more money!

Work and earn

I love this program and company so much. They really show concern, care and affection for anybody that comes their way be you a consumer, a distributor etc. Working for them, to my experience, has being so great and wonderful, although you need to really work and with and the back up of the program, your financial success is sure because the more hard work you put, the more reward will you see.

Their compensation programs are wonderful but to those that are hard working. They have wonderful products that would forever continue to sell. At first, people might be skeptical. I actually started in that direction and with hard work, I was able to overcome the challenges.

My personal experience with Protandim and LifeVantage

I had severe eczema my entire life and have tried many products that did little to nothing for my condition. My skin was healed 100% by taking Protandim within the first 3 months. As for the viability of the business end I have absolutely no problems finding people who are interested in signing up for it. Saying that the product is expensive??? It costs less than a buck and a half a day! I find more change than that clinking in my pockets at the end of the day! I know of over 40 people that are taking Protandim through me. People I know have absolutely no problem with that as a price point.

On the business end you cannot do this as a hobby. It is through building your organization that the results come. If you put very little in then you will get very little out. But if you are willing to get educated about what Protandim is, how it works and why it works then you will be richly rewarded. There is no product that I can see which has the history of Dr. McCord (discoverer of Super Oxide Dismutase) at the helm. Protandim is clinically proven to reduce oxidative stress. Oxidative stress has been linked with hundreds of diseases. This is such a no brainer.

Why I Chose Lifevantage

I have been making great money from home for the past 7 years now. Mostly marketing big ticket items. I have never ever been involved in a wellness company though. I was never compelled enough to market the same old, until I saw Lifevantage. The company is a publicly traded company so that means full transparency. The company markets a unique product that has been patented 3 times and has over 15 different universities and hospitals doing peer research spending millions of their own money to see the benefits of Protandim. What other company can state that? Do you think the University of Michigan is wasting their time if this was something that wasn't rock solid?

I have never seen a company care so much for it's distributors. The contests to win free ipads or go on expenses paid cruises is awesome. The websites are sleek and professional. The compensation plan rewards those that work. I am so excited to rock the Chicago market. This is an easy product to sell. The baby boomers will eat it up. What are the two things baby boomers are looking for? To slow the aging process and to achieve wealth for retirement. With Lifevantage you have that potential. Our team has some great strategies lined up to find other health professionals so we can leverage some massive income. We put together some killer advertising co ops and autoresponder campaigns.

This opportunity really has it all. And I would grade it an A. Again in my seven years working from home I have never ever seen a company that had it ALL together like Lifevantage.

Okay but a little extravagant

I purchased a basic business package because I was interested in their products. I thought if I was interested, other people would be too - anti-aging products are really popular - and it would be an easy sell. Although I was personally satisfied with their products, they are very difficult to sell. The prices just aren't competitive with other similar companies' products, and there's no unique advertising to really give it an edge to convince people to pay a higher price. Although I had no complaints about personal usage, I'll probably find a different brand that's more affordable when my supply runs out.

Good Products but hard to sell

I have been a member of LifeVantage for a while now and while I'm not completely disappointed with the whole program, I'm not jumping up and down either. I will have to say that overall it is not a bad program to get involved with, but I found that the products are very hard to sell. The main reason I'm getting right now is the price. I will have to agree with them on that. However, their prices are not outrageous by any means but they are higher than what people are willing to pay.

About the compensation plan... it reminds me of SFI a lot. It seems to have the same format and although it's not the best, it's not the worst either. I did manage to get a few people in my downline at first, which was providing useful income for me, but they have since dropped out of the program. This was bad news for me. I have not been able to recruit anymore in my downline at this point. This is another aspect that I find extremely hard.

Overall the program is promising but it has it's drawbacks as well. I found the products hard to sell and getting the downline required to make a nice income is hard to achieve. I will say that the products themselves are pretty good. I have since given them to family members. If you have the ability to sell, sell, sell, then this is for you. Other than that, I think that there are better programs out there that are easier to achieve modest results with.

Just another Avon

This site resembles Avon all too much. Basically they ask you to purchase a business package. You must then sell their product, at which point you start of making %3 of the actual cost, not including taxes. Your percentage will grow as you further you sales venture. The more you sell, the more you make. I find it hard to sell a new product, most of my friends were skeptical. Other cosmetic sites with known names might be smarter to invest in. I personally took a loss, but the product itself is worth the cost so I really wasn't upset.
