An Absolute Must Read If You’re Thinking About the Ariix Opportunity
I’m sure you’re here for this Ariix review because you’re thinking about joining and you’re wondering if it’s the right move for you.
It’s always good to do your homework, and make sure that the company that you’re joining is on the up and up. It’s also important that the review you’re reading isn’t one written by a distributor for the company, but by an unbiased third party who has no real care either way whether you join or not.
This is that review. I’m NOT a distributor for Ariix, and so this is truly an unbiased Ariix review. Just the facts of what Ariix is about, and some opinion of whether I think it’s a good company.
Ariix Review – A Quick Background on the Ariix Opportunity
Ariix is an extremely young company, founded in July of 2011. So it’s likely that the person telling you about this company is telling you that it’s a chance to get in on the ground floor of an amazing opportunity (they almost always say that…but this one might actually be true I suppose).
This is a network marketing company out of Bountiful, Utah. They’re a company marketing nutritional and dietary supplement products. There products all seem to be based on sound nutrition, with what looks to be there staple product Rejuviniix, which is made up of an array of highly concentrated “super-fruit” extracts.
Of course I say “seems to be” because the company is so young, that they seem to still be getting their footing, and there’s really not a lot of information on the effectiveness of their products yet. That doesn’t mean that they’re not good however.
Is Ariix Really Groundfloor?
Ariix is essential a spinoff from USANA sciences, which has been a major leader in vitamin supplements in the MLM industry for years. 2 of the major players are Dr. Ray Strand (a former doctor for USANA), and Tim Sales, the founder of the amazing Brilliant Compensation video funnel.
(As an aside, even though the Brilliant Compensation funnel, which educates people on WHY network marketing is good info, I think it's much better to use targeted marketing to find people already sold on the concept of network marketing than converting people to understand network marketing.)
Ariix – The Company at a Glance
Again the company is quite young. They’re founded by some very big names in the industry, nearly all being former USANA executives (USANA is one of the biggest network marketing companies in the world). This tells you that there’s a lot of knowledge as to how to run a company, and hopefully that knowledge will pay off for this ground up opportunity.
The vision of Ariix is to “unleash the human potential for good” and to “help YOU help OTHERS”.
Vision statements like these are vague and unfocussed. Let's hope they get more targeted. We'll get more into that later in this Ariix review.
Ariix Management Team – Who’s Behind the Curtain Over at Ariix?
As mentioned before, Ariix certainly seems to have a solid management team behind them that truly understands the inner workings of making a network marketing company grow and run smoothly.
Former President of Usana Dr. Fred Cooper is CEO of Ariix. He spent 13 years at Usana and rose through the ranks from VP of information technology on through to President of the company. He was a big factor in the growth and success of Usana while there.
He also created and founded the company that sells one of the premier software systems for direct selling called ICentris.
Along side Dr. Cooper is Chief Financial Officer Fred Yates, who has had 24 years of experience leading the financial duties of various companies including his own. He was CFO of Franklin Covey as well as Usana.
President of Ariix, Mark Wilson is a lifelong entrepreneur creating successful direct sells businesses since the age of just 20. He was also the former V.P. of Sales for Usana.
The Ariix Products – How Do These Products Rank Against Other Companies?
The Ariix products seem to be solid… however they may very well be the weakest link in the opportunity. The reason is simply that they seem to be “me too” products.
Rejuviniix is a blend of super fruit extracts concentrated meant to give you energy, alertness, and provide ample health with antioxidants.
Their other products Minerals, Vitamins, Omega Q, and Vinali (blend of Vitamin C and bioflavanoids) all fall under the same scope in my mind. Besides somewhat boring names, these products just don’t seem as though they’re going to stand out in any particular way.
This is not to say they aren't good. I remember reading Dr. Ray Strand's book a few years ago, and was impressed by his knowledge of belly fat and nutrition.
But vitamins and minerals are not sexy. To really make a dent, you need something sexy. This is something Ariix competitors like Visalus have in spades.
They are just released a new product Biopro Q, so stay tuned for more about Ariix and Biopro Q.
Ariix Review – The Compensation Plan
Unfortunately the compensation plan with Ariix doesn’t seem to be all that unique either. They’ve gone with what’s basically a binary plan – with a couple of variations – such as the ability to have up to three legs which pay against the power leg.
Binary comp plans are the most popular, but most distributors don't make a lot of money with them. You need to be a whale to get a good income in a binary comp plan like Arixx.
With this plan there are seven ways to earn which are Retail Profit, Base Commissions, Team Lead Bonus, Matching Bonus ,Payline Bonus, Income Position Bonus as well as a Luxury Car Bonus at the backend of the plan.
Ariix Name – Is It A Good Opportunity?
Alright so let’s cut to what’s really on your mind. Is the Ariix opportunity really worth your time and effort?
If you were to base your decision on the products and compensation plan, then what you’ve got here is what seems to be just another network marketing company…almost cookie cutter like.
The high points however are in the very young age of the company as well as the leadership. Two big distributors in the industry, Tim Sales and Lynn-Allen Johnson have apparently hopped on board, and so perhaps they see a great future for the company.
Robert G. Allen, the famous financial author has also jumped ship from USANA to Ariix. But so far, it looks like a USANA 2.0 clone.
The key to success with this company would be YOUR ability to recruit like crazy, and build a team of successful distributors under you who also know how to recruit like crazy. In other words you’ll need a large team to do well with Ariix in my opinion.
To me it sounds like this company is based right on a fault line of a rocky feud between former USANA MLM players. Not as stable as Tim Sales seems to suggest.
Ariix – How to Guarantee YOUR Success If You Join Ariix…
Unfortunately knowing how to recruit like crazy isn’t everyone’s strong suit. Most people in the industry are barely working on a few leads a month, and really have no clue how to get any more.
At the same time, I’m teaching people in the industry how to get literally hundreds of leads per day… which are the types of numbers that you’ll need in order to see huge success with a company like Ariix.
