The business opportunity that Vollara offers is something that I looked into recently. And one thing I can say is that if you are looking into this as well then you should definitely read this because you likely won’t be told this by anyone that is already with the company.
Is Vollara a scam? No… I am not saying that. But what I am saying is that you need to read this because there is a major downside to this business that you may not know. In this short review I’ll be going over how this business works, how you make money, the big downside and more.
Vollara is a direct sales company that sells water ionizers, air purifiers, nutraceuticals and more. As far as I see and from what I have read their products seem to be good quality and I don’t see any big problems with them. If you are into these sort of products then Vollara might be worth looking into for consumer purposes. But the purpose of this post is to talk about the business opportunity here, not the products.
Vollara relies on independent distributors to do all the selling and marketing. They do not sell in stores. Anyone can become one of these distributors and make money with Vollara.
How You Make Money
As an independent distributor you are going to be able to make commissions off of the personal sales that you make as well as by recruiting other distributors into the business.
Recruitment is a key part of this business and any other mlm out there, which this is. Mlm stands for multi-level marketing and basically what this means is that you can recruit in others into the business beneath you and earn from their efforts. This may sound like the greatest thing you’ve ever heard but its not and I’ll go over why in the next section.
As with many mlm’s, Vollara’s compensation plan is a bit confusing. Usually mlm’s make their comp plans confusing to make them seem better than they are, or at least that’s how I take it.
But anyway… there are 14 ranks within Vollara, and if you want to make as much money as possible, which I assume you would, then you are going to need to climb the ranks. Climbing the ranks unlocks more of the compensation plan which means you earn more money.
The higher you go in the ranks the higher “Team Bonus” percentages you will earn, which is a money that you earn from what those in your downline do, aka what those that were recruited in beneath you do.
If you move your way up to rank Level 7+ then you are then going to unlock what are called “Executive Promotion Bonuses” which allow you to earn down to 8+ generation levels. And what a generation level is, is basically a recruit’s team that is within your downline. You don’t really need to know what it is here, just know that it is another way for you to earn from those recruited in beneath you.
How do you move up the ranks? I figured you would ask. Well the answer is recruitment. Its all about recruitment. You are required to make personal sales at each rank but you will move up the ranks by recruiting in other members.
The Catastrophic Downside To This
It is no secret that I dislike mlm’s. And the reason for this is because they are set up so that most people will fail miserably.
The fact that you can make money from those beneath you may sound appealing but it just makes it more difficult to make money and leads to massively uneven wealth distribution where those at the top make the majority of the money while those at the bottom struggle.
That is just the way it works when it comes to pyramid-like mlm structures like this. They have a ton of potential to make good money but the reality is that very few will make good money because most people will be at the bottom struggling. I review mlm’s like this all the time and its almost always the same. In fact, I just reviewed Neways & Talk Fusion (2 other mlm’s) the other day and its the same with them.
I was actually able to find a pdf on the FTC’s website that claims Vollara fails to disclose that 99% of distributors actually lose money. This was written by the Consumer Awareness Institute.
Conclusion on Vollara – Scam?
Well Vollara’s products seem to be good and all but there is no doubt that their business opportunity is misrepresented and lures people in with dreams that more than likely will not come true. The bottom line here is that very few actually make good money in this business.
You have to be a recruitment machine to make it. You need to build up a massive downline and earn from them, because that is how their compensation plan works. But this isn’t easy and statistics prove it time and time again. For this reason I don’t really recommend mlm’s all too much.
Something else that you might want to look into if you are looking for a work-from-home job is how I make money online. I make a living online and I enjoy what I do. Here is the program that got me started and got me to where I currently am, making $5k + per month.
