Is Team Beachbody Coach a scam or legit?
There are so many mlm companies online that it is hard to keep track of them all. Some are good and some are not that good while others are just plain pyramid schemes or scams. How will you know that Team Beachbody is a company that you can trust or that you will make money from them?
It does not take a lot of research to determine whether a company is legit or not. There are but a few things that you should look at that will be the pillars on which this company is built on. If any of these pillars are broken or does not even exists, then I would advise you to stay away as far as possible.
Not all mlm companies are scams, but I was part of them in the past and did not have such a good experience with one of them. So whether you are someone that are just interest in their products or you want to build a business around them, this review is for you.
First let’s start off with the first pillar which will be the products:
Team Beachbody products
From the start of this section I am going to tell you that there is something that I did not like at all. The first thing that I have noticed is that some of the products that are being sold here are not being owned from Team Beachbody. This can cause a major problem because this might classify this company as a pyramid scheme.
Companies need to have their own products in order to be called mlm. The example that I am going to use is the programs listed under the fitness program section when you go to the shop page. One of them are called P90X which is a good product but the owner is Tony Horton and this is only but 1 example.
Does Team Beachbody have their own products?
This is a very important question because if they fail in this category, then they are indeed a pyramid scheme. Luckily under the nutrition and supplements section I came across products that are actually being owned by Team Beachbody, so this is somewhat good news for them.
Are they approved by the FDA?
When you buy a supplement or food of any kind, how will you know that it is actually safe to eat? This is the reason why the FDA plays such a huge part in food safety. It also does not mean that when a company is not registered by the FDA that they are not safe, but I will not gamble with my life.
On the right sidebar of the website you will see right under the BBB stamp in very small print that they acknowledge that they have not been evaluated by the FDA. This can cause major problems because everything that you put into your mouth needs to be evaluated because you do not know what you are putting into your mouth.
They even say that the products may contain natural rubber latex which might be allergic for some people. Now I just wonder where the rubber latex is coming from (if you catch my drift)?
There is really not anything unique here about them except for the fitness programs (which they cannot even take credit for). I am not that happy about their products to tell you the truth.
Team Beachbody Compensation plan
The compensation plan is a very crucial part of any mlm company and if it is too complicated, then your business will not grow as you wish. This compensation plan has 14 levels that you can achieve which are already too much. i do not know why mlm companies need to have this many levels.
You only have about a couple of minutes to explain this plan to your downline and when it gets this complicated then it will take you longer. Most of the times you your prospects will start to lose interest and you will then lose one or more enrollees because of this. The simpler the plan is the better.
There are 2 main ways to earn an income from Beachbody:
1. Retail sales
Here you will earn a commission rate of 25% from the sales that you make from your customers and you will also earn 15% from your personally enrolled club members. This part of the compensation plan is luckily not that complicated.
2. Commissions from your team
This is where the complicated stuff gets in the way. I mentioned before that you will need to go through 14 different levels in order to reach the top. Each level has its own benefits and its own qualifications. Below is a list of the levels that you will find:
- 1 Star Diamond
- 2 Star Diamond
- 3 Star Diamond
- 4 Star Diamond
- 5 Star Diamond
- 6 Star Diamond
- 7 Star Diamond
- 8 Star Diamond
- 9 Star Diamond
- 10 Star Diamond
You will only be able to have 2 legs from the start which will really limit your earning potential and they call it your left and right leg. You also need to be an Emerald to be able to have these legs. Both your legs need to earn a total of 300 TV (Team Volume) together where one leg needs to have a minimum of 100 TV. When your teams reach 300 TV, it will be called a cycle.
Emerald Coach will earn $14 per cycle; Ruby coach will earn $16 per cycle and Diamond coaches will earn $18 per cycle.
Should you join Team Beachbody?
This is a type of question where only you can give the answer. This will really depend on your skill level as a sales rep and your ability to teach your downline to do the same. If you are new to any type of marketing, then I would not recommend this company to you.
You will always get people that will try to brainwash you into thinking that you will earn a ton of money with this company and that is far from the truth. The majority of the people fail with mlm and nobody will tell you this. Maybe you are a type of person that is a very fast learner and you have the patience to wait.
But if you are very interested in joining an mlm, then I would not recommend this one as there are far better ones than this.
How I make money online
I have tried it and it works and it’s called affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is where you earn commissions by selling products from other companies such as Amazon or E-bay. There is also a whole arsenal of private affiliate networks that you can try.
Most people think that mlm is the only way to earn a passive income online and they are wrong. Firstly those people do not understand the power of content marketing within a website. Your website will be the foundation of your business and will make money for you while you sleep or you are on vacation.
There is also no limit to the size and the amounts of websites that you can build. You can either build a lot of small ones or a couple of large one. If you have never build a website in your life before, then there is no need to worry as I have got you covered. Leave a comment below the comparison graph as I would like to hear from you 🙂
