Is Avisae a Pyramid Scheme? – What You Should Know

Wondering is Avisae a pyramid scheme or not? Well then you’re in the right place. In this review I will be touching on exactly this. I know there are a lot of people out there that are probably getting approached by other members of the business and being asked to join, which makes you wonder if it is just some big pyramid scheme.

I will start off giving a basic overview of the business, followed by the compensation plan, and of course whether or not it is a pyramid scheme. If you are considering joining this business you are going to want to read this first. I have found that businesses like this are not the best choices for everyone out there and you will see why I’m saying this.

Avisae Review

Avisae is a MLM company in the health and wellness industry, similar to Total Life Changes, It Works!, and Shaklee. They sell a variety of products dealing with fitness, weight loss, personal care in skincare. You may have heard them referred to as “the love your gut company” because some of their products are focused on gut health and restoring gut function.

But anyway… I’m not here to review the products that Avisae sells, I’m here to review the business opportunity which many people are calling a pyramid scheme. As I mentioned above, this place is a MLM company, and MLM stands for multi-level marketing. Now what this means is basically that members are able to make money by recruiting in other members, and from the members that they recruit in, and so on.

Cost to Join

You can choose to purchase products from Avisae as a normal customer but if you want to join and earn money promoting products and recruiting people in, then you will have to join as a Avisae Blue member. To do this you have to purchase a starter kit which will range in price from $49 – $899.

The eight $49 starter kit is just the bare essentials to get your Avisae business up off the ground, whereas the more expensive kits include a bunch of products you can use for promotion.

The Compensation Plan

There are eight different ways that you can earn money as an Avisae Blue member, however I will be going over just a few of the main ways to do so.

Retail Bonus

First up is the Retail Bonus. This is the simplest and most straightforward to understand. When you sell Avisae products you get paid a commission of the sale… Simple as that. You will earn 10% of your personal sales volume.

As a member you will get your own personal Avisae website that you will be able to make sales through or you can alternatively have customers use your own unique referral code when purchasing on the official Avisae website.

Launch Bonus

The Launch Bonus  is a bonus commission that you collect when you recruit in other Avisae Blue members and they purchase a starter kit. However you will not earn this bonus for just any starter kit that they purchase, such as the cheapest $49 starter kit.

I know you will earn $50 when you recruit people and in the buy the $299 kit, but I’m not really sure how much of a bonus you make with the more expensive ones.

Team Business Commissions

The Team Business Commissions are probably the main part of the MLM compensation plan. Your “team” is your downline, which is made up of the people that have been recruited into the business beneath you. These team business commissions are paid based on volume, the more business volume your team has the higher commission percentages you get paid.

So of course the goal here is to increase your business volume and the easiest way to go about this is to recruit in other Blue members.

I’m not sure how many levels these team business commissions get paid out on. I was not able to find any information on this in their compensation plan.

Pyramid Scheme?

While members are getting paid to recruit others into the business and have them recruit as well, this just is not a pyramid scheme. There are plenty of just a minute MLM businesses out there that pay people to recruit others in, but this does not make them pyramid schemes.

A legitimate MLM becomes a pyramid scheme when they focus too much on recruitment and not enough on product sales to the general public, and I do not see Avisae falling into this category.

I think Avisae is doing a good job at staying away from this. It can be difficult to tell when and MLM is a pyramid scheme or not because there is a gray line between the two. Pyramid schemes can sell legitimate products. It all has to do with how much they focus on recruitment versus how much they focus on sales to the general public, which is very hard to determine.

One thing I will say is that Avisae seems to be going in the right direction. They actually made some big changes to their compensation plan somewhat recently and have made it much less “pyramid scheme-like” if you want to put it like that.

One Thing To Consider If You Are Thinking About joining

One thing that you need to know is that MLM compensation plans like this make it more difficult to make money for the majority of people involved in them. This is because those at the top of the structure or rewarded the most while those at the bottom have money taking away from them.

Just think about it for a second: it is the people that have big downlines and have recruited tons of people in that are earning lots of commissions from the work of people beneath them. And these people that are beneath them are losing money that could potentially be theirs because it is getting funneled out to the people above them. And of course there are always many more people at the bottom than at the top, which makes it more difficult for the majority of people to make money.

This is something that you don’t really hear about much and I hope I did an okay job at explaining it.

Final Thoughts

So no, I do not think that Avisae is a pyramid scheme in any way. They do reward their members for recruiting and other members, who are also rewarded by recruiting and other members… But this does not make them a pyramid scheme. That said, what I just mentioned above is worth thinking about.

The people that tend to excel with these types of businesses are those that are able to recruit people in left and right, because after all if you want to make good money you’re going to have to recruit since the compensation plan rewards heavily for this.

So join if you want. You can rest assured that this is not a pyramid scheme.

If you are like me and just don’t have that salesperson type of personality to be able to recruit other people in easily, or you don’t think you do, then you may want to take a look at how I make money online. I actually make a living working online, having started back in 2015.
