Is Vasayo A Scam? Not At All, However…

vasayo

Welcome to my Vasayo review. First off let me get this out of the way and answer the question: is Vasayo a scam? Nope, not at all. They are a legit company with genuine products and a legit business opportunity.

So, I guess the next question that needs to be answered would be. Is this the right business for you? Well of course only you can decide that.

But I’m confident that after reading my review you’ll be in a far better position to decide if Vasayo is right for you or not.

Now, as always, I’m simply here to show you the pros and cons of Vasayo and give you my personal opinion. What you decide to do after reading my review is up to you.

And with that said, let me first say, good on you for taking the time to do your own research before getting involved with any business opportunity. That alone tells me your serious about finding a legitimate way to make money online.

Alright, let’s see what Vasayo is all about.

Ok, So Who Is Vasayo?

Vasayo is a multilevel marketing company that operates in the health and wellness niche. The comapny is headquartered Pleasant Grove, Utah, and was founded in 2016 by Dallin A. Larsen, Daniel Picou and Karree Larsen all bringing a unique set of business skills to the company.

Now when it comes to the founders it’s best you now a little bit about them. And the reason is if you do decide to get involved with this company, you also need to know who you’re getting involved with.

Ok, with that said the guy that stands out the most is Dallin A. Larsen. He’s one of the founders and he is also the chairmen of Vasayo. And the reason he stands out is because of his problematic past when it comes to multilevel marketing.

Back in the 1990’s Dallin was associated with a company called Usana. And Usana was accused of operating an illegal pyramid scheme.

Jump ahead to 2005 Dallin founded the now defunct company called MonaVie. And over it’s history that company was hit with many different lawsuits as well as pyramid scheme allegations.

Now of course I am not saying this is what’s going on here with Vasayo or that it’s going to happen.

But considering David’s history when it comes to multilevel marketing this does raise some red flags for me.

Think about it. If you’re running an honest operation, you don’t usually end up with lawsuits and allegations of operating a pyramid scheme do you?

Now at the time I’m writing this I found no lawsuits or allegations of any kind against Vasayo. And that’s a good thing.

But you really need to be certain you want to get involved with this company considering who’s running Vasayo.

Because you definitely don’t want to get knee deep into this business and then later come to find yourself associated with a company that ends up crippled with lawsuits and pyramid scheme allegations.

The Vasayo Product Line

vasayo products

Their product line is listed under 2 categories. Nutrition and Beauty.

Let’s take at look at their nutritional products.

Take Note

Now remember when it comes to supplements such as these none of statement (claims) that Vasayo says about their products have been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

Which means Vasayo does not have to prove that their prodcuts work or that they are even safe for you and your customers.

So just because they say they can do what they do. Does not mean they will. So, before you jump into this business you should really give some of the products a try.

Simply pick the ones that interest you the most and see if the product delivers on what it claims it can do.

If the products do work, then you now know that you can go out there and confidently market these products because you’ve experience positive results.

And if things don’t work then that’s when you need to reconsider joining this company. Because personally I could never market a product that is not working for me.

Also keep in mind even if they products do work for you. There is no guarantee they will work for all your customers and that’s only natural. So be prepared for some negative feedback.

Ok, let’s look at their beauty products.

Beléza Serum

This product is a face-and-eye solution designed to help maintain firmness of healthy skin. You get 1 ounce for $149.95. They recommend you use it twice daily.

Beléza Rejuvenating Cream

This is their anti-aging cream. For $89.95 you get 1.7 ounces. They recommend you use this in morning and at night applying it to your face and forehead.

Beléza Hydrating Mist

This spray is designed to help protect your skin against pollution & blue-light exposure. For $64.95 you get 3.4 ounces. Simply spray on your face and neck as needed throughout the day.

So, How Much Is It To Get Started With Vasayo?

The basic enrollment kit is going to cost you $29.95. This is an annual fee. Now all that will get you is the replicated website, no products.

And at this point you are not considered active. And to be commission active you need to have at least 80PV. PV is personal volume.

Now when I went through the enrollment process, you’re going to be presented with a bunch of different options when it comes to buying prodcuts. You can buy individual prodcuts, nutritional packages and they even have a bulk purchase program.

Now each product shows the CV (commission volume). But it does not tell you what the PV – personal volume is for the products. And you need 80PV to be considered active.

So, to find out what it would cost to join I noticed there was an email address for the person who’s site I was at. So, I emailed that person and he told me that the minimum cost to join and have at least 80PV would be $125.00 (plus tax). And that was quoted on the price of a box of Eternal.

And of course, you can spend even more if you like to get going. And the more you spend the more product you get plus a bigger discount. But at a minimum it looks like you’ll be spending $125.00 to get started.

Also, at the time of enrollment you’ll be prompted to join their Smart Ship program. This will have your products automatically shipped to you every 28 days. And by being on the smart ship program you automatically qualify yourself to remain Commission Active.

How Do You Make Money With Vasayo?

It’s no surprise that Vasayo’s compensation plan is a tad complicated and confusing to understand. So, I’m just going to give you the simplified version of how you can make money through their compensation plan.

For more detail’s you can read their compensation plan by clicking here. And of course, the person that’s trying to recruit you into the business can go over things with you as well.

Either way you really want to be sure you understand what’s involved and what’s required of you so you can take full advantaging of the possible earning potential.

Now Vasayo’s compensation plan is a Binary compensation plan.

So, this means you have a right and left leg to your business. And to be considered Qualified you need to have at least 2 active brand partners. One in your right leg and one in your left leg.

Binary compensation plan

Ok, so there are 8 ways you can earn through their compensation plan.

First is by simply selling the prodcuts to people. Either face to face or through the replicated website you get once you join. And in doing so you can earn up to 60% commission.

Now the other ways of earning will require you to start recruiting people into your business. This way you can work your way up through the ranks and become eligible for the bonus at each different rank level. In their compensation plan you’ll find 18 different ranks.

So, here’s the 7 other ways you can earn:

2) Product Introduction Bonus (PIB)

As an active brand partner, meaning you have a minimum of 80PV. You will earn 20% PIB on purchases from newly sponsored Brand Partners for their first commissionable order.

Multiple Business Centers (MBC)

When you reach and maintaining the rank of Black Diamond for 4 consecutive weeks you can now build additional organizations.

So, Can You Expect To Make Money With Vasayo?

Of course, you can make money. But with that said the person that’s going to have the best chance of making this business work. Is someone who has experience with network marketing. Is comfortable with recruiting people as well as face to face sales.

Now you are given a replicated website but that website is never going to see any ranking within the search engines allowing you to generate organic traffic. So, to take advantage of your website, you’re going to need to learn or if you already know how to leverage social media for traffic to your website.

And if you want to develop organic search engine traffic, which by the way is the best long term sustainable traffic you can generate. You’re going to need to learn how to generate organic search engine traffic using a simple work around involving your owning you own website, not a replicated one.

You also have another option which is paid traffic. And that’s a whole new set of skills you would need to learn. But paid traffic is not something you need to do to build your business. It’s just another option.

But to boil it down to 2 basic skills. You’re going to have to very comfortable with recruiting and sales. And if that’s not in your wheelhouse, than you may want to reconsider joining Vasayo.

What Are People Saying About Vasayo?

Like every MLM company you’re going to have people that say nothing but great things as well as people that have nothing good to say. Both about the business opportunity and the products.

Now you can find comments at places such as the Better Business Bureau and Reddit. But when it comes right down to it. You have to go with your gut. How do you feel about the opportunity?

And when it comes to the products. Like I mentioned it’s best to try them yourself instead of relying on what others are telling you.

What Training And Tools Can You Expect?

When it comes to training not only should you be getting guidance and training from the person that enrolled you. But you also have access to the Vasayo app.

With this app you have full access to all the Vasayo tools. The Vasayo video library. Recorded conference calls and much more.

What I Like About Vasayo

#1) Low Startup

Compared to many other multilevel marketing companies. The cost to get started with Vasayo is relatively low.

#2) Refund And Product Returns

You can return any product within 30 days after the original date of purchase for a full refund. And you also can return any unopened product within 31–60 days for a 90% refund.

#3) Legit Business

There is a true business opportunity available with Vasayo for the right person.

What I Didn’t Like About Vasayo

#1) Expensive Products

The products they carry are very expensive compared to similar products that you can buy through other retail sources. For example, they have their V-Shake. This is their grass fed whey protein powder.

It costs $69.95 and you only get 14 servings (packets). And they recommend the optimal usage is taking 2 packets a day. So, if you do that, you’re going to be spending $279.80 per month just for protein powder. That’s $4.99 per serving. Are you nuts!!

You can buy Grass-Fed Whey Protein Concentrate on Amazon from some very reputable manufacturers for WAY less then what Vasayo is charging you.

In fact, you can buy a 5 pound container that’s offering you the same results and giving you 25 grams of protein and gives you 73 servings for $59.95.

That’s only 82 cents per serving for a Undenatured, Non-GMO, Gluten Free product. So, which one would you buy?

#2) Low Success

The hard truth is most people and when I say most people, I’m talking about 99% of people that do get involved with any MLM will lose money. And I’m not just tossing out that number.

There have been many studies regarding multilevel marketing as a viable business model to follow. And it’s shows that MLM is a failed business model for distributors.

Look don’t take my word for it. Here’s some resources you can check out regarding MLM:

#3) Questionable Founder

Dallin Larsen does not have the best track record when it comes to his involvement with multilevel marketing.

His last company was involved in multiple lawsuits including making false claims about their products all the way to being accused of being a pyramid scheme. Eventually the company went into foreclosure and its assets where purchased by Jeunesse Global.

For me personally this is a huge red flag when it comes to making a decision as to whether or not joining this company is a smart choice.

Sure, maybe this guy has changes his ways. But I would not want to risk my business with a person that has shown that integrity is not at the top of his list for character traits.

#4) Recruitment Is Needed

Yes, you can make money just by retailing their products. But if you want to be eligible for those bonuses where you can earn the big money through their compensation plan. You’re going to have to start recruiting people into your business.

And that is far easy said than done. It takes a special kind of person to be able to consistently search for people to join their business. And the recruiting never stops. And that’s because statistics have proven over 50% of the people you do recruit are going to quit within the first year.

And for the one that do stay well, 90% of them will be gone within 5 years. And during that time, you’re going to have constantly keep your team motivated. So, add being a cheerleader to your business plans.

#5) Very Competitive Market

When it comes to the health and wellness market. It’s very competitive. There are hundreds of MLM companies in this market selling the same types of products. Not to mention all the other retail stores selling similar products.

Now this is not to say you can’t carve out a segment of this market for yourself. But it’s not going to be easy.

#6) Lack Of Digital Marketing Training

Now Vasayo may have in depth training when it comes to leveraging the internet for growing your business but I couldn’t find any reference to that type of training.

So, unless the person that enrolled you has experience in digital marketing this is something you’re going to have learn on your own from an outside source.

My Final Opinion Of Vasayo

Sure, there is a homebased opportunity available through Vasayo. Is it one that I would jump on board with. No, MLM is not for me (been there done that). The business model just does not support success for the majority of people that get involved.

Having to constantly beg people to join your business so you can grow your business is not a fun way to build a business. Plus having to become a salesperson is not any better.

Now you may have the skill set needed to excel within MLM. And if you think this is a company you can fully commit to and build your business. Then don’t let anyone else stop you from doing that.

However, if I’ve place a small seed of doubt when it comes to joining Vasayo then maybe you should take a look how I’ve built a fulltime income online.

And I’ve done it all without having to become a salesperson nor ever having to recruit a single person to build my business.

And that method is Affiliate Marketing.

Look many, many years ago I was involved with an MLM so I know what challenges are waiting for you. I busted my ass for 14 months and never saw any real success. So, like most people I quit.

And it’s the best thing that happened to me. Because that’s when I discovered affiliate marketing.

The advantages that affiliate marketing has over MLM are many. One of them being you can build your business around any hobby, passion, or interest. And makes no difference what those are.

Even if you’re into health and wellness you can build a thriving online affiliate marketing business without joining an MLM and having to meet minimum monthly requirements just so you can earn commissions.

Now the best resource for learning how to build a thriving affiliate marketing business is Wealthy Affiliate.

Everything you need is all in one place. Training, tools, resources, and personal one-on-one support.

Now is affiliate marketing going to be the business model you follow for making money online? I have no idea.

But before you make a final decision regarding Vasayo it only makes since to see what wealthy affiliate has to offer when it comes to building an affiliate marketing business.

And by doing that you can compare the two business models and make an informed decision as to which business model will work best for you.
