Alright, let’s take a look at Zilis.

Ok, So Who Is Zilis?

Just like companies such as hempSMART. Zilis “the ultra company” is a health and wellness multilevel marketing company that sells CBD oils, topicals, powders, and even a full spectrum hemp CBD oil for your cat or dog.

The company was founded by Steven and Angie Thompson back in 2015. The company is located in Argyle, TX. And they also have an office in the Czech Republic.

The Products

zilis products

Now if you’re not sure what CBD Oils are. Cannabidiol is an active ingredient found in the marijuana plant. Now CBD does not have TCH which is the chemical that gets you high.

Zilis has full spectrum CBD Hemp Oil. Now when it comes to full spectrum products some may contain up to 0.3% of THC. But this is not enough to give you any feeling of being “high”.

Zilis has a varied line of products that are used as a natural remedy for many common ailments such as chronic pain and anxiety.

And you’ll find these products listed under the following categories:

Hemp Oils

  • Collagen – for skin support (anti-aging). $79.95 – 30 vegetarian capsules
  • Zinc – $49.95 – 60ml

Now remember all of these products are considered dietary supplements. And because of that the FDA has no provision for approving these products before any company including Zilis brings these products to market.

And because of that. Zilis does not have to prove their products are safe or if they are even effective.

That’s why companies that market these types of products need to include the following disclaimer on their website regarding their products and what they claim they can do:

FDA

If you’re going to be getting into business with Zilis, I think it’s best you buy some of their products and try them out for yourself. Of course, you don’t have to buy them all, simply buy the ones that interest you the most and see what results you get.

And if you happen not to see any results then you may want to rethink marketing these products. Because in my opinion you don’t want to be selling products that you’re not having any results with.

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

To become a distributor (ambassador) for Zilis it’s going to cost you $99.00 for their ambassador starter kit. This kit includes a virtual starter kit, a personalized website, e-commerce store, cloud back office, and support.

You also have 3 optional enrollment packs to choose from.

  • Bronze – $300.00
  • Gold – $600.00
  • Silver – $1200.00

With the bronze, gold and silver enrollment packs each one comes with more products. As well as the fast start commission associated with it and infinity match percentage as per their compensation plan.

After the first year of being an ambassador, in order to stay qualified, you will need to pay a $49.00 membership fee for every additional year you want to remain an Ambassador.

Also, in order to be eligible for commissions and bonuses you must have a personal monthly auto-ship order of at least 50PV (personal volume). You can also stay eligible if you have 75 non-autoship personal volume.

Note: you will need your sponsors information to enroll with Zilis.

How Do You Make Money With Zilis?

When it comes to the making money part Zilis has 11 ways you can make money. Now the reality is when you break things down you can only make money 2 ways.

One is through retail sales. The other way is to recruit people into your business and by doing that you have the opportunity to work your way up through the compensation plan and earn bonuses at the different rank levels within the plan.

Ok, let me break this down for you so you can see how things work.

Retail Bonus (sales)

This is pretty straight forward you’ll earn money from all your personally enrolled Retail and Preferred Customers. Which is the difference between the wholesale cost and the sales price.

And to qualify for this bonus you simply have to be an active ambassador in good standing.

Fast Start Bonus (FSB)

When you personally enroll a new wholesale customer or independent ambassador that buys a enrollment pack you earn commissions.

Binary Team Builder

Since their compensation plan is a binary plan. This means you have a right leg and a left leg to your organization. Which looks like this:

Binary compensation plan

Each one of your legs has an unlimited number of people in it who have been recruited by you or anyone else within a leg.

One leg is known as your power leg, and this would be the leg the produces higher BV (business volume) and the other is your weak leg which produces less BV.

It’s your weaker leg that Zilis will pay you 20% of the BV each week for new promotional product enrollment or upgrade pack purchases.

It takes a minimum of 300 BV on each leg to generate this bonus.

Stored Volume

As an active ambassador you can store and carry over up to one million BV (business volume) in your strong leg. And you can then use this stored volume for commissions in the future.

Infinity Fast Start (IFS)

Once you reach the rank of Area or higher you are eligible to earn this bonus. So, the more you people you recruit to grow your business, the more IFS bonuses you can earn.

So, Can You Expect To Make Money With Zilis?

When it comes to actually making money within an MLM business model the chances are not that great. And Zilis is no different.

I do have to hand it to Zilis because they do provide you with an income disclosure statement showing you the average earnings of their active distributors.

Many MLM companies don’t provide this information. And you can see why.

If you look, I have it highlighted in red. In 2019, 83.02% of their distributors earned on average $7.70 for the year! Yeah, I had to look at it twice. At first, I thought it said $770.00. But nope it’s $7.70.

zilis income disclosure statement

And even if you include Associate Ambassador who made on average $161.31 for the year. And Community Ambassador who made on average $506.50 for the year.

96.1% of all active distributors made on average $675.51 for the year. And that works out to whopping $56.29 per month.

And in 2019, 80.0% of all Ambassadors received NO income at all.

Now tell me does that inspire you to get on board with Zilis? Does this sound like a fantastic opportunity where you can make big money?

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say – NO.

Here’s the link to their income disclosure statement.

Who Is Zilis For?

This business opportunity is best suited for an experienced salesperson and network marketer who has the skill set to build a big organization and is comfortable with constantly recruiting people as well as training and motivating those people within their downline.

If this does not describe you then multilevel marketing is not a business you want to get involved with.

What I Like About Zilis

#1) Not A Scam

Zilis has a legit business opportunity to whomever is interested.

#2) Growing Market

The CBD is a very hot growing market. In an article done by Forbes Arcview Market Research projects that the CBD market in the United States could surpass $20 billion by 2024.

#3) Free Replicated Website

To help you build your business Zilis provides you with the replicated website where you can direct people to buy the products as where you can and roll people into your business.

#4) Paying It Forward

Zilis has programs where they pay it forward. The first one is there partnership with Vitamin Angels. And this is where they provide parental vitamins to expecting mothers and their infants to help with malnutrition.

They have their multivitamin program where they provide nutritional packs for the children of Haiti.

And then they have their Patriot Program. So, anyone that serves in any military branch in the United States who wants to join Zilis will waive the $99 enrollment fee.

What I Didn’t Like About Zilis

#1) Low Income Potential

According to their own income disclosure statement 96% of all active distributors earned $675 for an entire year. That’s just over $56 per month.

But you have to remember this does not include the money you have to spend in order to keep your business going and be qualified to earn commissions and bonuses through their compensation plan.

Remember you must be on an autoship program with at least 50BV. Which is going to cost you at a minimum $100 per month.

And if you’re not on that autoship program you need 75BV. So, you’re going to be spending more than $100 per month.

And if 96% of the distributors are only making $56 a month every one of those distributors is losing money every month.

#2) MLM Business Model

The MLM business model is fantastic for the company itself but it’s a complete disaster for any of the distributors.

The MLM business model does not set you up for success. The truth is it sets you up for failure.

There’s been many studies that prove MLM is a horrible business model to try to build a home-based business with.

99% of people to get involved with a multilevel marketing company will lose money. And over 50% of people that get involved with a multilevel marketing company will quit within the 1st year.

And when surveyed 65% of the people said knowing what they know now when it comes to multilevel marketing, they would not join the same MLM company again.

#3) You Need To Recruit People

If you want to be eligible for those bigger commissions and those bonuses there’s no way around it, you’re going to have to constantly recruit people into your business.

And as I just mentioned earlier the reason why you’re going to have to continually recruit people is because over 50% of those people you do end up recruiting are going quit within the 1st year.

So not only are you going to have to consistently sell the product you have to be very comfortable with constantly having to convince people to join your business.

And if you’re not comfortable becoming a salesperson and a serial recruiter. Then multilevel marketing is not for you because you won’t be successful unless you have those two skills.

#4) Expensive Products

This is a running theme with multilevel marketing companies their products typically cost a lot more than similar products that you can find in the open market.

And the MLM companies will tell you what the reason why their products are so expensive is because they are a lot better than what you can buy in the open market. And that’s total BS.

The reason why their products are so expensive is they need that money so they can pay out on their compensation plan. Remember everybody gets paid at every level so they’re going need money to do that.

So, don’t be fooled into thinking that their products are better because they’re more expensive. You can find similar products that offer the same results for a lot less money outside of a multilevel marketing company.

#5) Pay To Play

Now you’re told that these additional enrolment packs are optional. But if you not going to upgrade with one of these enrolment packs your potential for earning money is going to be limited.

Because in order to increase your potential to earn money you will have to upgrade to one of these enrolment packs.

This is also known as pay to play. So, if you don’t pay for an enrolment pack, you’re not going to have the ability to earn the largest commissions available.

#6) No FDA Approval

Because the products that Zilis markets are considered supplements and dietary products. There is no approval from the FDA. And because of that Zilis does not have to prove the effectiveness or even the safety of their products. So as a consumer it’s buyer beware.

My Final Opinion Of Zilis

There’s no doubt the CBD market is growing like crazy and it’s definitely going to be for a long time.

And if you’re into CBD and you see the profit potential then absolutely jump in.

But don’t jump in with an MLM company. Doing that is like shooting yourself in the foot – it’s going to turn out badly.

The success with Zilis is just not there. Their own income disclosure statement proves that.

Unless you think making $56 per month is successful. And I doubt you do.

So Now What?

You can still get in on this huge growth market by simply becoming an affiliate for any number of non-MLM companies.

Take CBDpure – you can join their affiliate program for free and earn a 40% commission marketing their line of products.

No recruiting people to build your business. No having to meet ridiculous qualifications in order to make money.

And you don’t have to become a salesperson like you do when you join an MLM.

And something most people are not aware of is being part of an MLM you don’t have complete control or ownership of your business.

As an affiliate marketer you control and own 100% of your business.
