If you’re considering joining NuSkin, you may have a common question many people have when looking at it initially, which is “Is NuSkin a Scam?”. It’s something you need to be comfortable with because, if you’re going to invest your energy and time into building a business, you need to feel good in knowing for sure that the company is on the “up and up”. The last thing that anyone wants to have is months or even years worth of work disappear in an instant. As with any opportunity, NuSkin has some pros and cons to consider, so here I’d like to provide you with some background information so you can decide if it’s a scam or a good opportunity worth pursuing.
NuSkin Enterprises first started doing business in 1984 and was founded by its current CEO and President, Blake Roney. The products they currently sell include a variety of personal and skin care products which are purchased by the end consumers through their network of independent distributors. On top of earning bonuses for sponsoring and mentoring other distributors who build their own customer base, these business owners earn commissions for the sale of NuSkin’s products to consumers. Does that make sense?
Here’s a tip: If you can’t simply understand what service or product a company is promoting, FORGET IT! In NuSkin’s case, they sell personal and skin care products which focus on anti-aging.
There have been many network marketing companies in the last few decades, but over the past 26 years NuSkin has continued to flourish into a publicly-traded corporation (NUS) worth almost $2 Billion through their distributor force of over 750,000 people (about 10% are considered active). So far so good, right?
To Start Out With The Pros
NuSkin has many great products, but their Galvanic Spa, which is used to eliminate the appearance of deep wrinkles, is probably their most popular. I haven’t personally tried it since I’m too devilishly good-looking (j/k I’m not really that narcissistic), but there are a ton of positive reviews online if you’d like to research it some more. Their product line also includes a line of nutrition products marketed under their Pharmanex label, and their Big Planet division which sells technology-based services like Internet, digital photography products, and ebusiness tools.
Hopefully you’re starting to see that any idea of there being some sort of “NuSkin Scam” isn’t something to be overly concerned about since they offer decent products and provide the opportunity for people who don’t have hundreds of thousands of dollars to invest to start their own business for under $500.
Speaking of starting a business, a small minority of people who get involved in the network marketing industry have started the trend of saying that companies like NuSkin are a scam because they didn’t make thousands of dollars their first month. These people want to make sure they’re not getting involved in some “get rich quick” scheme, but at the end of the day, that’s exactly what they’re expecting to happen. They might join the company as a distributor, tell a few people about the products, and end up quitting 3 months later because the 2 people they told about the products did buy. Would you realistically expect to make thousands of dollars per month after only talking to a couple people?
No reasonable level-headed person would because in ALL BUSINESSES it takes time, hard work, blood, sweat, and tears to make a lot of money. Working with NuSkin is no exception.
Truthfully, many network marketing companies like NuSkin are partially to blame because the training they provide their new business builders is based on the 50+ year old techniques of exclusively targeting your warm market. To be clear, I’m not saying to keep your business a secret but the reality is to be successful in this industry, you need to learn how to market the right way to people other than your Mom and Brother-In-Law. That’s a topic for a different article, though.
I hope you can feel better in knowing that with NuSkin’s 26 years track record, the fact that they’re heavily regulated as a publicly-traded company, and with their product line of high-quality skin and personal care products, they are definitely not a scam..
