Business model: MLM
Xango is an mlm company that mainly sells products that are made from Mangosteen which comes from Southeast Asia. The company was found in 2002. Just so that you understand, Mangosteen is a fruit that promotes health because of the xanthones that that are present in them.
If you do not know what an mlm company is, then you do not need to worry as I will explain it to you below. MLM stands for Multilevel marketing which is a type of business model where you can earn a commission from what you sell and also from what the people that enrolled under you manages to sell. As you enroll people and they also enroll people then you can start to earn money from multiple levels deep.
Most people see this as a blessing, but it is actually not a blessing if you look at it closely. I will explain this part later on because I would like to get back to my review. So is Xango a scam that you should avoid? My answer is going to be no, it is not a scam but let me go into more depth so that you can be more knowledgeable about this company before you make your final decision.
Xango Product Series
The products are very important because they are the driving force of this business. Without the products this company would be labelled as a pyramid scheme which is something that you should avoid. For a person to succeed in any mlm company the products needs to be unique and not more expensive than that of what you can find at your local store.
If you can get similar products at a lower price from your local shop, then I am afraid that you will not be able to sell Xango products to anyone, but if the uniqueness can make up for it, then you can give it a go. Let us start with some of the products that you can find.
- Mangosteen juices and concentrates
- Anti-ageing products
- Vitamin and mineral supplements
- Omega 3
- Sleeping aid pills
- Protein supplements
- Detoxing products
- Skin cream and lotions
I have a bit of mixed feelings about the product from this company because on the one hand there is a little bit of uniqueness that gives the product their own flavour because of the Mangosteen fruit. On the other hand, the health industry is very crowded and there is a lot of competition in this area. Almost every second mlm company that I review is associated with selling health and diet supplements.
How do you make money with Xango?
I already explained to you the basics on how an mlm company operates. Xango is willing to pay a total of 50% commissions from the products sold to its distributors. You can either sell the products directly to the customers where the difference between the wholesale and retail price will be your profit.
You can also make money with the Unilevel commissions that you can make from your group. This is where you earn money from the sales that other people make within your group. There are 9 ranks that you can reach within this company which is not that much compared to other companies.
The ranks will be:
- Prev Rep
As you can see the names of the ranks are very peculiar and it is also the first time where the names do not include the work diamond or gold in it. Th only thing that I did not like was that the qualifications for these ranks are very hard to reach. The personal volume does not play such a huge role because your group volume is very important.
This really sucks because now you are dependent on your group to perform so that your group volume can get more each month. If you have a weak group, then it will be very hard for you to reach these ranks and to grow your business.
On the good side let’s say you manage to reach the higher ranks, then you can earn a commission rate from deeper down the generations within your team. You will earn a commission rate from 2% up to 10% depending on your rank.
I generally do not like mlm companies but this one was not really that bad. Even though the products are in a very competitive market some of them have contains Mangosteen which makes the products more unique than others. The compensation plan was also not that hard to understand and it did also did not have that many rankings which is great because you will get some mlm companies that have up to 19 rankings that you can reach.
Let us get to the serious part. MLM is not for everyone because it takes a seasoned marketer to experience success with network marketing. Your downline also needs to be experienced because without them, your business cannot grow. MLM also has a very bad name nowadays and people are getting very careful when it comes to these types of opportunities.
If this is your very first time that you have ever heard of mlm, then I would not recommend that you take this path because more 2% of the people get more than 95% of the earning. The other 5% will go to the other group that is below the pyramid.
My alternative to mlm
There are so many other ways to earn money online. One of them is called affiliate marketing and it is something that I have tried and that is already earning me a substantial amount of income. You sell products from companies such as Amazon and Ebay and you earn a commission when someone buys a product from your website. Wait a bit!
Don’t you need a degree on web design or coding in order to build a website? Fortunately no because WordPress makes it very easy to manage and write articles on your website. You can build your own website in less than 5 minutes which is a record time if you ask me.
All you need is a computer and an internet connection and that is it. No need to buy products just in order to qualify just so that you can start to sell them. Once your websites are up and running, they will also have the ability to make money for you while you sleep or even go on vacation.
There is no limit to the amount and the size of your websites. Some people build a lot of small websites while other build a few large ones as it depends on the market that you chose.
