Synergy Worldwide, The Company

Now as I just mentioned Synergy Worldwide is a multilevel marketing company. And it markets health and wellness products. The company was established in 1999 by Dan Higginson. With their US offices located in Lehi, UT.

They first launched in Japan then the moved into Taiwan and then into the United States, as well as 23 other countries.

And in 2000 Synergy Worldwide partnered with Nature’s Sunshine and their products. While synergy still maintains its brand and its business structure. It has become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nature’s Sunshine Products.

The Products

synergy worldwide products

Now my review is not here to review the products that synergy worldwide offers. My review is focused on the income opportunity that synergy worldwide is offering people.

But it’s still important to see what products you’re going to be selling in order to build your business.

So, I’m just going to give you a brief rundown of the different categories of the products that they have available for the United States. For more detailed information regarding the products, you can go to their website and click on the ” Shop” link at the top of their website.

  • L’Amara Superior Bundle – this is their L’Amara skincare line that includes a cleanser, skin toner, oil, cream, and moisturizer.

Now I do have to mention when it comes to the different supplements that synergy worldwide offers.

Please note that none of these products have been evaluated by the FDA. Which means that synergy worldwide can bring these products to market without having to prove that the products are safe or that the even work.

So, my suggestion to you is if you’re seriously thinking about getting involved with synergy worldwide. It’s probably best that you order some products that you have interest in and give those products a try and see how they work out for you.

Now, if you see results with the products that you’ve chosen that’s fantastic because now you can share your positive story with the people that you’re going to be selling these products to.

And on the flipside if you see no significant results, that should give you a moment of pause to decide whether or not you should be involved with this company.

And I say that because you certainly don’t want to be marketing products to people were you’ve not had any positive results yourself.

Now I know everybody’s going to have different results with these products but personally if I was marketing a product I certainly would want to be marketing a product that’s not working for me.

Joining Synergy Worldwide

In order to become a team member of synergy worldwide you will need a sponsor’s ID to complete the membership form. There is a $24.95 membership fee. And then you have 3 plans/options to choose from.

Leader – this is the basic option and you’re going to have to order 150 CV of product which will activate 1 tracking center.

Executive – this is the second option you have and if you order 300 CV this will activate 3 tracking centers.

Elite – this is the 3rd option you have and if you order 500 CV of product this again will activate 3 tracking centers.

Note: CV stands for commissionable volume and it’s not a dollar value. It’s simply a value that synergy worldwide uses within their compensation system to calculate commissions.

Now I tried to find the most up-to-date prices for these different plan/options. Because you’re not going to find that information anywhere on their website. However, I did find a United States product price list.

Just a heads up I’m not sure how up-to-date these prices are. But if they have changed, I can only assume they have gone up. Here’s the product price list if you want to take a look at it.

So, in order to meet the minimum 150 CV you need to buy enough product that equal or exceed 150 CV.

For example, of the 6 different ProArgi-9+ products they equal 170 CV and wholesale between $235.00 and $265.00 Now I’m assuming you’re going to pay the wholesale price not the retail price.

So, if you plan on becoming involved with synergy worldwide at the basic option of Leader buying a ProArgi-9+ product you’re going to spend at least $235.00.

Mind you if you choose other products individually I got that price down to $179.00. So, you’re going to spend at least $179.00 to get started plus the $24.95 membership fee.

Now of course if you decide to become a member with the executive or elite options obviously you’re going to have to pay more for those options.

Now there’s also another thing attached to these different options and that’s their fast start bonus which I’ll cover when talking about the compensation plan.

Anyway, if you’re a leader you can receive a $25 fast start bonus. If you’re an executive you can receive a $50 fast start bonus and if you’re an elite you can receive a $100 fast start bonus.

The reason why I mention this is to me this is a form of “pay to play”. Which means the more you spend the more opportunity you have to earn higher commissions and bonuses.

I just want you to keep that in mind when you’re reviewing the compensation plan and include this as part of your decision-making process.

The Compensation Plan

Synergy calls their compensation plan a Mega Match Compensation plan. And with this plan, it pays out 55% of commissionable sales on a weekly in a monthly basis.

There are 7 ways that you can get paid through this compensation plan. Now like most MLM compensation plans they can get a little confusing and tough to understand.

So, I’m just going to give you very easy and quick overview of their compensation plan. And this will give you really good idea of what you need to do in order to earn through this plan.

Now they do have a link on their website to their compensation plan PDF. And if you go to their homepage and scroll down to the bottom you’ll see a link that says compensation plan. You can also click this link to take a look at that compensation plan.

And of course, when it comes to any compensation plan there are qualifications that you’re going to have to meet in order to be eligible for any of the bonuses within this plan.

Retail

You’re going to purchase your products from synergy at wholesale and then you’re going retail those products to your customers. Now there is no set price when it comes to retail prices. But synergy does recommend that you mark things up by 30%.

Fast Start Bonus

When someone you sponsor buys their initial product order you can earn a fast start bonus.

Now if this product order is at least 150 (CV) commissionable volume. You’ll earn a $25 fast start bonus.

If the product order is at least 300 (CV) you’ll earn a $50 fast start bonus.

If the order is at a minimum of 500(CV) you’ll earn a $100 fast start bonus.

Elite Rebate

You can earn this elite rebate by placing an order of 150 CV or more each month. Or instead of manually placing your minimum order of 150 CV each month. You can go on their monthly Autoship program.

And this rebate is 25% of the total CV above the elite qualification level. Here’s a snapshot from the compensation plan showing you how this elite rebate works.

Basic Commission

The commissionable volume from your left and right leg within your business is totaled up each day. And as a qualified team member you can earn 10% of the total accumulated commissionable volume of your weak leg each month.

Mega Match Bonus

Here you can earn up to 100% matching commission on all the basic commission paid to every team member you personally sponsored. And there is no limit to the number of team members you can personally sponsored.

Leadership Bonus

The leadership bonus allows you to earn up to 4% on your strong leg’s CV based on the new monthly growth of your weak leg CV. (Yeah it makes no sense to me either)

Here’s a screenshot of the payout percentages for this leadership bonus.

Global Share Bonus

Once you get to the level of Presidential Executive you’ll receive an additional payout which is 1% of the total company wide CV each month.

And your share of this bonus is determined by how many other presidential executive qualifying team members there are.

There are a total of 15 different Pin Levels within the synergy compensation plan.

  • Star – 500 CV
  • Bronze – 1500 CV
  • Silver – 3000 CV
  • Gold – 4500 CV
  • Team Leader – 6000 CV
  • Team Manager – 14,000 CV
  • Team Director – 30,000 CV
  • Team Elite – 60,000 CV
  • Pearl Executive – 100,000 CV
  • Emerald Executive – 200,000 CV
  • Diamond Executive – 300,000 CV
  • Presidential Executive – 400,000 CV
  • Double Presidential Executive – 800,000 CV
  • Triple Presidential Executive – 1,200,000 CV
  • Legacy Presidential Executive – 2,000,000 CV

Their Earnings Statement

Synergy does provide an income disclosure statement; they call it an Earnings Statement. Either way it’s the same thing.

Now there is a link from their website to this earning statement however this earning statement is from 2018.

While they do show you the average yearly income of team members at the individual ranks. One important piece of information they left out is the percentages.

So, for instance at the Star rank they show that the average annual commission at this level is $1808.56. Which they broken down for you and it shows that that’s an average monthly commission of $150.71.

But the information that’s missing is what percentage of all team members are Star rank team members?

So, how many of all the team members in synergy are Star ranked as well as at the other ranks? You just don’t know. And it’s that information that you really need to know along with the average annual income of members.

Because for example, let’s say 90% of all the synergy members are Star ranked members earning hundred $150.71 per month. That’s definitely going to give you reason to pause when it comes to deciding whether you want to join synergy or not.

Because if the majority of people in this business are not earning a significant income you don’t know that. All you know is if you get to a certain level on average you’ll earn X amount of money yearly.

So, while it’s great that synergy has provide you information in regards to what the average annual earnings are of their team members. They have not provided you the whole picture when it comes to earnings with this opportunity.

Can You Make Money?

So, can you make money with synergy worldwide? The opportunity is there, so of course you can make money.

I think the better question to ask is are you going to make money? Probably not.

Unless you’re a skilled salesperson who loves to sell. And you’re skilled at network marketing. You’re going to have a very tough time making money with synergy worldwide.

Before you get involved with any business opportunity you need to educate yourself so you know what you getting involved with.

So, with that said here are some resources for you that give you more information when it comes to multilevel marketing.

My Final Thoughts

Synergy worldwide is certainly come a long way since its beginnings in 1999. And they do have a legitimate home-based business opportunity.

But that certainly doesn’t mean that this business opportunity is suited for everybody because it’s not.

Now I could sit here list the pros and cons of this business. And truth be told MLM has more cons and it does pros.

But this is the bottom lin when it comes to MLM…

The person that will excel in this type of environment is a person who loves to sell and has excellent network marketing skills.

And if that’s not you, then this is not the business for you. No matter how enticing it sounds and no matter what someone tells you when it comes to the money you can earn.

If you don’t like selling and if the thought of doing that every day as well as trying to recruit people every single day to build your business doesn’t sound like a fun way to build the business.

You’re absolutely right it’s not a fun way to build the business if you don’t have the mindset and the skill set to do it.

Yes, of course you can learn the skills. But you have to ask yourself do you want to become a salesperson? Do you want to constantly be recruiting people every day to build your business?

Again, if the answer is no, the writings on the wall. This is not the business for you.

Look, I’ve been down the MLM road and after busting my ass for over a year trying to build my business and making no real money I quit. And that’s the best decision I made.

Because after leaving MLM I finally discovered a way to earn a full-time income online from home without selling or recruiting. And that way is through Affiliate Marketing.

And thanks to affiliate marketing I’ve been making a full-time online income as an affiliate marketer since 2005.

Now if affiliate marketing is something you would like to learn more about. The best resource for that would be Wealthy Affiliate.

They have everything that you need to build a wildly successful online affiliate marketing business.

I hope my review of Synergy Worldwide helped you out. And if you have any comments or questions please share them in the comments section below.
