Vemma team

Hey guys I just joined up with a company called Vemma. They make energy drinks and daily health type supplements and they pay people for social network marketing. So pretty much spreading the idea around and trying to get people involved. You can research it but basically the way it all works is you sign up for the program and buy 2 cases of their product, then you market it however you like and they pay you based off of how many people you get to sign up. And as you recruit more and more people you get more bonuses and get paid more money. Would anyone be interested in joining my team? I understand if the answer is no but please hold at least a little bit of the negative responses if you don't agree with my posting of this topic on the forum. I'm just using one of the assets I have, I'm not looking for arguments or problems with anybody on here. I'm just trying to reach out and recruit some people any way I can

Base level. I just started 2 days ago. I'm not gonna sit here and try to convince people that it is or isn't a pyramid scheme. In my opinion it is what you make it. So if you try it and you don't make any money and give up and feel like you wasted time and money, yea you might call it a scam and say its bs and unfair and this and that. But if you do make money off of the system, maybe not a boatload like a select few have but a decent amount of money, then odds are you wont look at it as a scam. I joined, I'm getting a tangible product that I can sell. So worst case, it doesn't work out for me and I sell my cans and move on. But on the flip side, it could end up well and I might be able to move up a little bit and make some extra money here and there. That's all I'm trying to do with it. I saw the opportunity and figured, ya know its not a whole lot of money to start and if it comes down to it I can simply break even and get out. At least I can say I tried. Just lookin for just a little help that's all. Like I said if this isn't what you're into I totally get it. I'm not here to push or beg or promise that I'm gonna make anybody a million bucks like some of the other guys doin it. I'm just trying to see if I can get anyone here involved. And like I said, it is what you make it. You could make money off of it or you can simply break even. Either way, you tried something different and didn't lose any money off of it. That's the way I choose to look at it

And I'm definitely not gonna give some bs pitch about how it's gonna change the world or how this kind of system will have everlasting money and profit or whatever else some of the members say. They're desperate and will do just about anything to get people to join under them. Don't get me wrong, I want people to help me make money and I wish the same for anyone I get to join under me. But I'm not gonna lie to you and tell you that you're gonna get rich in a month and by the second you'll be Donald Trump. Seriously that's not what I'm about. I have too much respect for people in general to go that route. All I'm saying is there is a potential, while it's still a small network, for growth. Meaning you can help the network grow and make money off of it. But only for a certain amount of time. Eventually everyone will know of the company and the products, even if their sole way of advertisement is through word of mouth and social networking, people will know of it. And then this type of marketing will be useless. So my advice, which is also why I chose to try it, is to start now while there's still a pretty good opportunity to make some extra money, and just see how it goes. That's what I'm doing.

Sorry for going on the offensive, but I just call them out because I get so annoyed with people who try to sell me on pyramid schemes. And I encounter them a lot. Well, good luck to you, maybe it will inspire you to start a business someday.

No worries I'm sure if I had a bad experience with something like this my reaction would be quite similar. This is my first "legitimate enough" encounter so I just wanted to try it. And yea I can send anyone a can if they'd like to try it. I'm not sure if you're being serious or not but if you are, you can just tell me where to ship it to and I can try to make that happen

Haha I just watched a video about the company and the guy said "we'll get you into a new BMW" several times, but I like my E46 better

He texted me and said the same exact thing to me about the new bmw. It looks like an e92 325 and its just a lease they dont actually give you a car. So I said I'd take my M3 over his leased out 4 banger any day lol I think I might have pissed him off cuz I didn't get a response. I told him and the two other guys who texted me that I'm not in this to get a new car I just want to try something different and see how it goes. My goal is to see if I can make a little bit of money. Past that, whatever happens happens. Again, I really want people to join under me and help me out, but I'm not gonna bug and harass people endlessly to get it. All I do is give information about the company, products and processes. And their decision is theirs. I refuse to get pushy and annoy people cuz I know if I said no to someone, I'd expect the same courtesy. Hopefully that sets me apart a little bit and I get more people that way.... But idk they say nice guys always finish last haha anyway, thanks for the replies already I appreciate any input. If anyone wants any kind of information or wants to try the verve energy drink that Vemma makes, which is what I'm currently involved with, feel free to ask I'll be happy to talk to you about it. And I'd greatly appreciate any help from you guys. It would be great to get a few new members from the forum. But if it's not what you're into, again I understand. Thanks for checking out the post everybody. Take it easy

Cut your losses now.

How much actual money have you made so far? I suspect that number will be the same in 2 months.

LOL, I'm sorry you drive a M3 but are starting to invest in a pyramid scheme/ MLM Marketing?

You do know that the basis of the actual income is not form the sale of nutritional products but from the "training, events, tools, etc"

There are three main streams of revenue for "diamond or whatever your org. decides to call it". One is the sale of the actual product which is essentially minimum wage at best but the actual income is derived from "tool kits" such as training tapes, kits, etc. The other is from actual recruiting fees.

The actual company Vemma team may or may not be directly benefiting from this knowledge as the MAIN distributors have significant power eg: research case studies on how AMWAY Global works. Most likely Vemma team is getting a piece of the cost, if not they are indifferent as long as the upstream continues and they can still obtain a huge profit margin.

Google Bill Ackman's Herbalife thesis http://factsaboutherbalife.com/

Same concept.

I am not going to go into further detail, but buyer beware.

I've only made $110 but my cans haven't even arrived at my house yet. So $20 more and I break even already. Before I even have the chance to sell any cans. You say to cut my losses, but Im not losing any money with it. I'll at least break even and be able to say I tried something different. But I really do appreciate your concern.

Yea I understand how it all works. And that's what I'm looking for; recruit fees that I get compensated for. But I also do plan on selling the product and already have a way to do it so I'm telling you I won't lose any money. And if anyone would at least join, I would be able to sell the cans for you if you needed that kind of help

Time wasted on this is time you could have spent landing a real job.

This is good life experience. Most young people have to have real life exposure to these MLM / pyramids to easily identify them in the future.

I already have a real job how do you think I afford my m3? Lol and I made $110 in 2 days. I'm on my 3rd right now so I'm not exactly wasting time as you put it. I'm more so just trying something that has a possibility of earning me a little extra money without investing endless hours of work per day into it.
