Of course, as with any other MLM operation, there is a disclaimer at the bottom of their page stating that NuCerity does not promise any kind of income or rewards.
As a distributor, you will be able to purchase products at wholesale prices and redistribute them to consumers at retail prices. When the consumer enrolls in their Preferred Customer Program that allows the distributor to get paid a residual income on a monthly basis.
You also get paid on a weekly basis depending on how much volume your team does. The maximum amount of money you can make in a week is $10,000. They pay out bonus commissions on a bi-weekly basis.
Skincerity has been tested and approved by a dermatologist board. A majority of their users have reported an improvement in skin conditions like acne, wrinkles, red skin and insect bites.
Nucerity also has an excellent reputation with the Better Business Bureau, there have only been two complaints filed with them in the last three years.
If you go to the official NuCerity website you will probably get confused and discouraged at the same time. You can’t join up or even place an order without having a sponsor. They don’t even list the prices for the products offered.
To join as an Independent Distributor won’t break the bank. However, if you order the four pack products it can cost you anywhere from $180-$800. In my opinion that is a bit steep for someone who is just starting out on a home-based business venture.
Just to join up in their Auto Ship program will cost you $120. Many of the other companies that offer similar services, do so for free.
If you are a distributor for this company you can expect to make around $20 per sale. This is much lower that many of the other MLM opportunities that are present in today’s world.
In order to get the monthly bonuses, you have to recruit four repeat customers a month. I feel this could prove to be difficult considering a potential customer can’t even get a price on a product that he or she may be interested in.
When doing further research, I discovered that many people felt that the prices charged for these products were more than what the average household could afford on a monthly basis.
Apparently the training program and later mentoring program left a lot to be desired as well.
On top of all this, apparently distributors have to meet a strict list of criteria to first join the team, and then be eligible for weekly and monthly bonuses.
Before you decide to invest your hard earned money into a company like NuCerity I encourage you to keep researching them. In my opinion, I feel there are many other companies that could prove to be much more lucrative in the long run.
Nothing about this organization impressed me. The point that I couldn’t even find what they have made in global revenues caused me a little concern. Usually these numbers are pretty easy to find.
There are literally hundreds, if not thousands of MLMs out there and many of them are in skin care and health and wellness due to the recent publics interest in them.
People are living longer these days and we are getting older as a population in general. Millions of dollars are spent by consumers each year around the world, but most of it is wasted money.
You have to ask yourself four questions before you join a direct selling organization:
- What are my goals?
- How much am I prepared to do to reach them?
- Is this a company that I can be proud of to represent them?
- Will this make me money?
Only five percent of the people that attempt to make money from a home based business actually succeed in doing so. Of course there will have to be some trial and error at the beginning, but if you choose your options wisely by doing the research, your odds of becoming one of these 5% are greatly increased.
NuCerity is not worth the time, effort and money to be a viable source of sustainable income. There are many other options to choose from and I strongly suggest that you look into them.
