My Plexus Review
Company: Plexus Worldwide
Products: Health and Weight loss
What is Plexus?
Plexus is an mlm company that sells products related to health and weight loss. If you do not know what an mlm is then you do not need to worry as I will explain it to you. MLM stands for multilevel marketing which basically means that you do not only earn a commission from your own customers, but also that from the customers of the people that enrolled under you.
It can even go more than 2 levels deep depending on the company. MLM does have its pros and cons and I personally did not have such a great experience with mlm. So now that you have an idea of what mlm actually means (I hope we are now on the same page LOL) then we can continue with Plexus.
Okay there are 3 main components that I always look at when reviewing an mlm company and it is the amount of complaints, product range and the compensation plan. Many people are only interested in the products, but some of them want to build a business around the company. Let us start with the complaints:
Plexus Worldwide Complaints
It is so important to look at the complaints from a company to better understand what people are currently experiencing inside this company. You can learn a lot from just reading the complaints from customers. One great place to go to is the BBB or Better Business Bureau. As you can see below, the company is not registered with the BBB and it also received a C+ rating.
Another important metric to look at is the amount of positive vs negative reviews. There was a total of 72 reviews and only 11 of them where positive, 1 was neutral and 60 was negative. That means that more than 80% of the people did not have a pleasant experience with Plexus.
The products are very important because it like the fuel for the company’s engine. If the products are not unique, priced competitively and of good quality then your chance for success will decrease. If someone can buy similar products from a local store at a lower price, then you are done for. Maybe if you are a super salesperson that can sell sand in the dessert, then you might be able to make it work.
Below is a list of some of the products that you can find within Plexus:
- Mega X (Omega fatty acid supplement)
- Weight loss supplements
- Nervous system supplements
- Multi vitamin
- Detox capsules
- Breast examination kit
The only unique thing that you cannot simply buy at any place is the breast exam kit. You can buy all of the other stuff at your local pharmacy at a lower price (depending on the pharmacy), so why would someone buy these products from you?
I also do not think that there is a great demand for a breast examination kit.
The income opportunity
A total of 50% from the total gross revenue will be paid out to the qualified ambassadors. To qualify as an ambassador you need to pay an annual fee of $35 and a monthly personal volume of $100 per month or you can buy the monthly $100 pack.
There are also 11 ranks that you can reach and each one has its own requirements and benefits. The requirements will work as follow: First you need to enroll a specific amount of qualified ambassadors for each rank. The higher the rank, the more ambassadors you need to qualify. Your group also needs to bring in enough group volume because each for each rank your group needs to have a minimum amount of group volume. The higher the rank the more group volume you need.
As for the benefits you will earn a commission from more generations deep if you reach a higher rank. As a senior ambassador (rank 3) you will earn from generations 1-3. As an Emerald Ambassador (Rank 9) you will earn 7 generations deep. Each level also has a specific amount of points that you will earn per ambassador. There is no set value per point as it can range from $2.82 to $4.89 per point.
You will also receive a one time achievement bonus for each rank that you manage to reach.
Will you make money with Plexus?
You could have actually skipped the whole review to read this part because this is the most important part of the whole article. I gave you all the information that you needed and now it is up to you to decide whether you want to join or not. So can you make money with Plexus? My answer is going to be yes and no because this will all depend on what you can and are willing to do.
MLM is not for everybody and it is proven if you look at the average income stats of mlm companies. The top 2% are making more than 95% of all the money, while the other 98% are making less than 5% of the money. I do not know the stats of Plexus, but to tell you the truth, I was not that impressed with their product range. You need to be remarkable salesperson in order to sell an mlm opportunity to your prospect. If the products are bad, then it will only make it harder for you to make money with it.
If you feel uncomfortable with the thought of walking up to random people with a huge smile on your face trying to sell them the products, then this is just not for you. It is also just rude to go to your family and friends trying to sell them to your opportunity. I can clearly remember the days when I tried to sell the stuff to my friends because they still remind me of it today.
You will also notice that you are dependent on the sales volume of your group in order to grow to the next rank.

My alternative to MLM
There are so many ways to earn a passive income online so I do not know why people are always thinking that mlm is the only way to go. There are other alternatives such as Affiliate marketing where you earn a commission from the sales that you make online.
The internet is growing at a very fast rate and more people are used to going online to buy stuff. There is no complicated complication plan and it is as simple as you earn money each time someone buys a product from you and that is it.
You are also not dependent on your downline to make enough sales so that you earn more money. With affiliate marketing you will reap what you sow. You can also earn a passive income by building a website. Building the website is very easy so please do not worry too much about it.
It will take you less than 5 minutes to get your website up and running and I will show you an awesome place that will help you with that.
I realized that you can easily earn a monthly income of about $6000 per month with a website and once your website(s) is built then it will make the money for you on autopilot. You just need to put the effort into developing your website to where you want it to be.
