Nerium International is an American based company that specializes in an assortment of anti-aging products.
Launched in 2011 and based out of Addison, TX. they started out with a staff of only 13 and one product, an age defying night cream. By 2012, they were ranked #86 out of 100 by Direct Selling News. Their staff increased to 100 and they made $100 million in revenues.
One year later, their ranking moved up to #54, their staff grew to over 200 and they made $200 million in sales. Obviously, a company quickly on the rise.
Sign-Up Cost: $99.95 however you do not receive any products at this price, only marketing materials
Global Revenue: $403 million
The Good: Nerium’s success rate is staggering, considering that they have only been around for five years.
The Bad: The fact that they are such a young company, makes it hard to speculate how they will do in the future.
The people at Nerium focus on reversing the signs of aging in both women and men alike. Their products are unique, because not only do they concentrate on skin care, but they also offer supplements to help the mind stay youthful.
These products consist of:
- Age-Defying Night Cream
- Age-Defying Day Cream
- Age-Defying Eye Serum
- Firming Body Contour Cream
- EHT Age-Defying Supplement
All of their products are plant-based and provide crucial anti-oxidants that boost cell renewal and skin hydration.
The People at Nerium want you to be in business for yourself, but they stress that you will not be working by yourself. They have a strong and supportive training program to help you realize your goals.
They have a relatively inexpensive start-up cost. There is no glass ceiling to worry about. You can work from anywhere, at anytime, whatever is most convenient for you.
Of course like all direct selling programs, the more people that you can get to participate, the more potential income you can earn. You can earn anywhere from $16-$60 a week as a bonus by getting people to sign up.
Once you get three or more customers to sign up, you don’t have to pay out of pocket for your own inventory.
By selling retail from your own personal inventory, you make a direct sales commission. This ranges from 10%-25% on all customer re-orders.
Once you have built a team, there are many incentives to keep you on track. Things like:
- 10% Coaching Commissions
- Team Commissions
- Live Better Bonuses that can pay up to $50,000
- Lexus Car Bonuses
- Incentive Trips
All of these combine to help you live your life on your own terms, help others with their skin care needs and provide a sense of financial freedom. All from the comforts of your home.
I feel that one thing that anyone interested in joining the Nerium team should take into consideration, is their explosive growth in sales in such a relatively short period of time.
This success can really only be attributed to a few factors:
- Superior Products
- High Rate of Customer Satisfaction
- Strong Marketing Strategies
Their products have been scientifically researched and proven in their effectiveness to fight the signs of aging.
Now, these products are a little on the pricey side in my opinion, it will set you back $270 for a combination of night cream, day cream and eye serum.
However, I found it very difficult to find any negative feedback on how well they worked, everyone seems to love them. This comes from both customers and affiliates alike.
Finally, obviously they know how to make their distributors achieve success when marketing their products. The numbers don’t lie and the $403 million in world-wide sales mentioned earlier was from 2014. I’m pretty sure it has continued to climb.
Nerium uses a substance called Oleander, this is highly toxic and bad for your skin. The reason that the fine lines and wrinkles disappear is because it causes inflammation and puffiness which makes the skin look and feel fuller.(1)
This being said, if you use the Nerium products as directed, you shouldn’t experience any uncomfortable side effects.
The only other thing that may be a little cause for concern is the relative inexperience of the organization in general. Five years is not a great deal of time when it comes to forecasting the stability of a business.
Nerium seems to be a legitimate business for people to get involved in. If you have decided that you would like to try working from home an being your own boss, this might be just what you’ve been looking for.
They have an excellent compensation plan and have paid over $100 million in commissions already, this is awesome.
If you check out their official website, you will see that is both very informative and easy to navigate through. This is a nice change up compared to many other MLM sites that are vague, confusing and basically useless.
This being said however, don’t believe that you will get rich overnight. Like most things in life, the success you achieve is relevant to the amount of work you put into it.
If you have been trying out different MLM opportunities without getting the results you want, maybe it’s not the company, it’s you. By the way, did you know that only 5% of people that attempt these types of ventures have had success?
The fact that you are taking the time to read this review and others like it is great. This is much better than blindly jumping into something without doing the proper amount of research first.
But if you think you have what it takes to work independently and get others to follow suit, I believe there is a valid opportunity by working with the folks at Nerium International.
It all comes down to what it is you are trying to accomplish. Are you looking to retire early, or are you just trying to make a little extra cash? Either way, out of all of the MLMs that I have done, this one would have to rank in the top 10.
