Lifeplus is an MLM health and wellness company that offers a wide variety of nutritional supplement products.
The company’s founder and President, J. Robert Lemon, was once a pharmacist who owned several pharmacies in Florida.
Lemon somewhat paved the way for a new network marketing breed with Lifeplus in 1992 by redefining the current industry using a simplified program. He wanted to be sure that Nutraceutical products were available to average customers.

Global Revenue: $51.18 Million
The Good: Lifeplus has been in business for over 2 decades with their sales continuing to increase, as well as, a long list of products that keeps growing.
The Bad: Pricing for some of the items are a little higher than some nutritional supplement providers. The auto-ship program is rather undesirable to some people, causing them to decline any offers.

The company’s compensation plan breaks down into 3 main parts.
The Leadership Bonuses – There are 4 rank levels within the company, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Diamond. The percentage of compensation you receive depends on your current ranking. 3% being the lowest and 12% being the highest.
Referral Bonuses – You earn bonuses from your personally referred associates sales. The more associates you refer that remain active members, the better and higher the pay out can become.
Leadership Development Bonuses – Help your team members move up in rank. When you have reached Diamond ranking and have 12 active legs with 15,000 – 25,000 International Points you get more bonuses. The company also offers something called a Dynamic Compression, this helps ensure that associates continue to receive a bonus, lets say an associate within your downline does not qualify for a bonus they take the points and compress them with other members to be sure you still have enough points to get the bonus you deserve.
The compensation plan is a bit smaller leaving less opportunity to make money. You have to be great at the referrals if you hope to achieve any success.
The business being owned and operated by a pharmacist adds some guarantee in the knowledge and know-how department. Lifeplus offers business kits called, Associate Kits, that allow the associates to strengthen the referral possibilities. You can get merchandise, business cards, literature and a website all to better promote the company.
The business has been running for over 2 decades and continues to generate a healthy revenue. More people are becoming health conscious which in turn is causing the customer count to rise. The product list has increased since the start of the business and it also continues to rise, with new items being introduced every so often.
Associates can purchase items at a discounted price adding another perk to the benefits list. Many of the associates use some of the products which allows them to share their honest opinion on the items to their future associates and team members.
Referral marketing can be a little harder than direct selling or retail sales. You have to have the know how and be good at it. With only 3 parts to the company’s compensation plan it can be more difficult to generate an income. Without referrals there is no opportunity for you to grow in the business, and when you do get referrals they must maintain an active status in order for you to make money or advance in ranking.
The Lifeplus company has had one known lawsuit filed against them. The suit was filed by former associates, which does not look good on their record. The company lost the case and had to pay out $245,000 for counterclaims for breach of contract and conversion. The former associate was discharged from the company based on the fact that the team member who referred her breached his contract, causing the company to assume she was doing so as well.
The company’s length of time being up and running is over 2 decades. The company is well known and its revenue continues to climb as does its customer count. Becoming an associate is rather simple, although it can be complicated when trying to get referrals. Overall the company has been and remains successful at what it does.
J. Robert Lemon having a pharmaceutical background makes many of the customers and the associates feel more comfortable with the products they have to offer. The ingredients are all natural which is an added plus, as many people are looking for more natural ways of living. The company also has a strong core crew of leaders that stand behind and back the company.
If you are interested in becoming an associate there is opportunity available for those who have an understanding of business and referrals.
If you are looking into the company as a customer then you will see that the prices are slightly higher than some companies but there are more products available with a guarantee they are natural and safe for you and your family.
