I decided to review Isagenix because it has been one of the most popular network marketing companies, since its inception. Does this mean it is a good company to join or not? Let’s take a look.
If you are thinking about joining Isagenix, you should read as many Isagenix reviews as you can find. Be sure that the reviews you read are not written by current members of the Isagenix opportunity. They are just there to try to recruit you into the business and may not give you an unbiased review.
My review of Isagenix will be an independent review. I am not, nor have I ever been a distributor of Isagenix products or the business opportunity.
Whether you are thinking of joining Isagenix or any other network marketing company, I would urge you to do your own due diligence. I strive to provide you with useful information that should give you a good start into examining this company. Remember, this is only a start!
People frequently lose money while trying to build any network marketing company.
Isagenix reviews – the company and its history
Isagenix was founded in 2002, in Chandler, Arizona. There are 3 co-founders of Isagenix. They include John Anderson, who is the product formulator, along with Jim Coover and Kathy Coover.
Jim Coover is the CEO and Kathy Coover is the Executive Vice President. Both of the Coovers have previous network marketing experience, as distributors.
The fact that they have been in business for 12 years, is a good sign. Most network marketing companies that fail will do so in their first 5 years.
The company reports having over 200,000 distributors, worldwide. They have also reported annual sales approaching $500,000,000.
Isagenix currently operates in 8 countries. These include the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Puerto Rico.
Isagenix reviews – their Better Business Bureau rating
Isagenix has a Better Business Bureau rating of A+. I like to see that a company has at least an A rating. This puts Isagenix in very good standing with the BBB.
Keep in mind that this rating is derived from several criteria, including the Isagenix complaints that the company has gotten and how well they are able to resolve these problems.
If you would like to read their BBB report, you can find it here. Isagenix’s BBB report.
Isagenix reviews – and their products
Isagenix has nearly 4 dozen different products. They fall into 3 main categories. They are weight loss, energy and performance and healthy aging.
They have everything from meal replacement bars to weight loss shakes. There is also a line of lotions. Although most of the products can be bought individually, most products seem to be sold in kits.
There is a wide range of prices for their products.
There is a Sampler Pak that retails for $14.00 and the Performance Presidential Pak goes for $745.00.
They have an excellent website. It is, actually, one of the very best and most informative that I have seen, in the industry! There is a 84 page pdf that has an extensive description of all of their products. It contains all of the nutrition facts and it also shows the retail prices compared with the distributor’s pricing. You can find it here. Isagenix Product booklet. There is a condensed version of fast facts if you’d prefer. Isagenix Fast Facts booklet.
My suggestion is that you try out the products before you join the company.
You can many of the products, for sale, on Amazon. You can find them here. Isagenix products on Amazon. You can compare the retail prices on Amazon to the prices listed in their Product booklet to make sure that you are not paying more than you have to.
Isagenix reviews – if you join
If you decide to join the Isagenix opportunity, it will cost you either $29.00 per year or $39.00 per year. If you agree to go on their autoship plan, then you get the discounted price. The $39.00 per year plan allows you to order the products whenever you want.
According to the company’s headquarters, you need to purchase 100 BV (business volume), monthly, in order to stay as an “active distributor.” As a distributor, you will not qualify to get any kind of check from the company until you have you have recruited 2 people and you maintain 100 BV, monthly.
Business volume is a number that is assigned to every product that a company sells. It is almost always lower than the retail price. A product that retails for $100.00 might have a business volume of 40 BV. This is just an example and may not relate to any of the Isagenix products.
There are 3 separate prices for each product. There is the full retail price. Then there is the associate price. That would be “wholesale” pricing. Then there is a price called Rewards.” The Rewards price is for those who are on the autoship plan.
Isagenix reviews – the compensation plan
There are 5 levels in the Isagenix compensation plan. You start out as an Associate and you can move to the highest level called Executive. After that, it gets much more complex. There is a 6 page pdf available to read. You can find it here. Isagenix Compensation pdf.
There is also a 14 minute video that discusses the compensation plan.
How do they turn a 6 page document into a 14 minute video?
Isagenix reviews – their income disclosure statement
I have to admit that I was impressed by their website. The Income Disclosure Statement was very easy to find. In their IDS document, they are trying to make the numbers look as good as they can. It doesn’t work.
They say that 83.5% of active distributors are making no money at all. They claim that those distributors in this category are in the company to buy the products at wholesale prices. I’m not convinced of that.
They go on to say that another 11.5% earn an annual income of $147.00. That’s about $12.00 per month.
That’s a total of 95% of distributors that are earning $12.00 per month or less.
The last category is for “business builders.” They make up the final 5% of distributors.
If you do the math, and they do make you do the math, to get the real numbers. You will find that a mere 0.1% of distributors are making over $100,000 per year. In my opinion, that’s well below the average in network marketing of those who reach the top level of their compensation plan.
Of that 5% who are business builders, 95% of them are making less than $420.00 per month.
You can read the IDS. for yourself, here.
Isagenix reviews – is this the right company for you?
You’ll have to decide whether or not this company is the right one for you. I hope that the information I have included here will help you in your decision making process.
There are things that I like about Isagenix and then there are things that concern me.
I would say that it is a plus that they have been in business for 12 years and they have an A+ rating with the BBB. It does concern me that 99.75% of distributors are making less than $420.00 per month and the vast majority are making no money at all.
Isagenix reviews scam?
Being that Isagenix is in the weight loss niche, there may be some that might think that they are a scam. Let me assure that Isagenix is a good and strong company. They are in no way a scam! Judging from the IDS numbers, it does kind of make you wonder, though.
As always, if you are thinking about joining this company, do your own due diligence.
The person who sponsors you is just as critical to your success as the information that is contained in this Isagenix reviews.
In the end, you must be willing to sell the products and recruit people into the business. It helps, a lot, if you are enthusiastic about, both, the company and their products!
I am wishing you the best of luck in your network marketing journey!
