Multi level marketing is not really anything new. These companies have been around for ages. Granted, some people have made money in these schemes, but it is usually those at the top of the pyramid that make the most. Alas, that’s how it always is anyway, but is there anything in it for the average Joe, trying to make some beer money? Truthfully, there sometimes is, but more often than not, companies that are based on continuous recruitment and spending are doomed to collapse at some point.
A relatively new MLM company has been advertising itself, fairly aggressively, lately. You may have come across their ads on social media (they have a presence on different social networks) or affiliate marketing websites. They’re called GoodLife USA. What is GoodLife USA, what’s this company all about and is it any good? Is it just another scam or a decent money-making opportunity? Ask no more – we have done all the heavy lifting to so you don’t have to. We’ve conducted heavy research about this company and what follows is our in-depth review. Without further ado, let’s start.
GoodLife USA Review – Part 1: About the Company
Headquartered in Florida, USA, GoodLife has been founded by two men – Edward Downer and Mark Seyforth. These two seem to be the alpha and the omega of the company, partners and CEOs. While we don’t tend to get too personal when doing our reviews, it’s always good to do some research about individuals running a certain company. After all, don’t you want someone experienced, someone who’s good at what they do to sit at the top of the pyramid?
Unfortunately, Downer and Seyforth both have been involved with not so successful companies in the past, But also some successful company’s that are still around today. One of them which you might have heard Herbalife. There is some info about them if you want feel free to search around.
GoodLife USA Review – Part 2: How Does it Work?
First impressions were good – their website looks really nice. The content is laid out in a nice, modern way. It seems professional and really makes GoodLife USA look like a legitimate business. The company describes itself as a “discount club” of sorts, selling membership and allegedly enabling its users to get great deals when it comes to travel.
As with any other MLM scheme, affiliates are rewarded for recruiting new affiliates. Those affiliates are then rewarded for recruiting new affiliates and so on. Seems like a typical MLM company. We’ve seen things like this countless times before. But, let’s not write off GoodLIfe USA just yet.
They offer three levels of recruitment – Silver, Gold and Platinum. Silver affiliates get $25 for recruiting another Silver affiliate and $75 for recruiting a Platinum or a Gold one. Same works for Gold membership affiliates, except they earn 50 – 150 USD for each new person they recruit and Platinum affiliates, naturally, make even more money. There are also travel membership commissions and commission-sharing options. There’s no need to get into each of them individually because they work pretty much the same – you get a certain percentage of the money someone spends. You get a piece of their cake.
GoodLife USA Review – Part 3: What’s the Catch?
Now, this seems pretty simple and easy to do. All you have to do is recruit new people and you’ll earn some decent money. Doesn’t seem too bad. Plus, you get to enjoy some discounts and whatnot, so you’re making money and saving money at the same time. As always, when something seems too good to be true, then it probably is. So, what’s the catch?
The catch is – you have to spend money to make money. While it’s common sense to expect a return of investment, in any kind of business, and to expect to spend money to make money, things seem to work differently in GoodLifeUSA. The thing is, you aren’t really buying anything substantial or real – like a product or a service. All you’re buying is a pretty useless membership. Once you buy it, you get other people to buy it. Then they get other people to buy it and so on. This is a classic pyramid scheme. Nothing more, nothing less. Spend money and recruit people to spend money, so that they can recruit people to spend money. This is not how legitimate businesses operate. Of course this is my look on this company and yours can be different, not trying to be negative but when I have to pay so much for membership, just to get some discount’s which are not exactly shown on their website, makes me think is it really worth joining?
GoodLife USA Review – Part 4: Pros and Cons
Now, let’s take a look at some pros and cons of GoodLife USA as a company and as a system. Surely not everything about this MLM company is as bad as it seems?
• Great, professional-looking website
• Good marketing campaign on social media
• One of the founders was involved with a couple of relatively successful companies
• Classic pyramid scheme
• No value being produced
- No info on discount’s that you get as a member
- If you travel one’s or twice a year might not be a good deal since you will be spending more on the membership.
GoodLife USA Review Part 5: Final Verdict
You’ve probably come to your own conclusion by now, but we still feel responsible to write mine own. While there are some seemingly good things about this company, but we have to look at the cons to, unless you are planning to make money with the company and use their travel service, it might be a great gig if you have the experience in the industry. But on the other hand if your looking just for the service which in my opinion might not be great, because I have seen many mlm travel site’s that are 3rd party that they do not really give you any real discount, might be better off booking with like Expedia or some other travel site and saving your money instead paying for some membership club that might not have any real discounts. I will leave the choice up to you, I will though provide my recommendation for a great mlm that I have been for 3 years now Monat Global have a look at my older post for more info.
