Monavie Review imageWelcome to my Monavie Review!

Monavie is a Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) company with a mission to provide an avenue for better overall health and financial stability, and has quickly become one of the fastest growing companies in the Network Marketing industry.

In this Monavie Review, I will be examining this company, the products that they distribute, and more importantly, the MLM Business opportunity that they offer as a Monavie Independent Distributor.

Does Monavie offer a legitimate opportunity, or is this a scam or pyramid scheme?  This is my unbiased Monavie Review!

MLM Business – How the opportunity works

Monavie Juice & Other Nutritional Drinks imageThe minimum cost to begin your business as a MonaVie Independent Distributor is a $39 enrollment fee.

This $39 fee will be waived if you purchase products that generate 200 Personal Volume (PV) or more, and also enroll into their Autoship program (25 PV minimum) to have products automatically shipped to your home address every month.

Earning Requirements

In order to earn commissions and bonuses within the MonaVie Compensation Plan, MonaVie requires that distributors maintain their Active status.

This requirement can be met by either purchasing products for yourself every month, or selling products to your Preferred Customers (customers on Autoship).  This can also be a combination of the two.

However, their Autoship Program will be highly encouraged to ensure that you never lose your Active status and your eligibility for commissions and bonuses for products sold.

As you are going through the online enrollment process, you will immediately be prompted to enroll into their Autoship Program and begin receiving the products that you choose every 28 days.

The minimum requirement to earn commissions is 100 PV per month.  Depending on the products that you choose, 100 PV equals anywhere from $115 (Autoship price) to $198 (Autoship price) per month.  At this level, your earning potential within the MonaVie Compensation Plan will be limited.

To maximize your earning potential, this requirement will be 200 PV per month.  200 PV equals anywhere from $215 (Autoship price) to $375 (Autoship price) per month.

Again, their Autoship Program is optional, but it will help you to meet the personal volume that MonaVie requires each month in order to participate in their compensation plan.

Brief Compensation Overview – How their pay plan works

As an Active MonaVie Distributor, you will have the opportunity to earn from 10 elements of their pay plan.

As you sell products, you will earn retail sales, as well as various bonuses dependent upon your personal sales volumes.

As you enroll new Distributors into your organization and advance in rank, you will earn additional compensation based upon the sales volumes that are accumulated throughout your organization.

I will limit the details of their compensation plan to this, and at the bottom of this MonaVie Review, you will find a link that will provide you with the full details of how Distributors are rewarded within the MonaVie Compensation Plan.

Distributor Training & Support

Monavie MLM Business Review imageThe MonaVie business model is based upon Relationship Marketing with products being distributed through a person-to-person approach.  These methods are commonly referred to as Warm Marketing.

To acquire customers, and recruit new Distributors into your organization, you will be trained and encouraged to approach your warm market of friends, family members, acquaintances, neighbors, associates, etc.

Immediately after enrolling with MonaVie, you will be paired with a sponsor who will have a vested interest in your success.  This person will be your direct line for training and support to assist you in achieving a fast start, as well as meeting your long-term goals.

You will have access to MonaVie University, an online resource for product information, as well as business building training and techniques.

However, with all of the resources that you will have at your disposal, these Warm Marketing methods will still be at the core of your new Distributor training.

MonaVie Review Conclusion

In my opinion, MonaVie is a very legitimate MLM Business opportunity.  MonaVie offers high-quality nutritional products with proven benefits, and has quickly become a leader in the Health & Wellness industry.

However, I would prefer to see MonaVie utilize more modern and effective marketing strategies, as Warm Marketing methods have proven to not be an effective way to build a business in today’s world.

Food for thought…

Building a successful MonaVie Business is going to require a combination of hundreds, if not thousands of loyal customers, as well as Distributors who are working diligently to duplicate your efforts.

Based upon the methods that MonaVie trains and encourages, the average person does not possess a large enough list of friends and family members to build a business of this nature.

Simply put, if you desire to build a successful MonaVie Business, you will need to be prepared to bring a more effective marketing strategy to your new business venture.

If coupled with an effective marketing strategy that isn’t limited to family and friends, MonaVie does offer a solid business opportunity with fantastic and beneficial nutritional products.

Next, learn the exact details of how MonaVie Distributors are compensated as my Monavie Review continues with their Compensation Plan!

I hope that you have found my Monavie Review to be informative and educational!  I wish you the best of luck in your home business research!
