Is it a NuSkin scam? It is very likely that if you are asking that question, then you are seriously considering joining this company and you’re doing your research just to make sure they are legit. GREAT job for doing that since a lot of people join for emotional reasons only without knowing what they are truly getting themselves into.[box type=”note”]FIRST, before I go into my “NuSkin scam” post I want to tell you that I’m NOT a Nu Skin distributor and I’m NOT affiliated with Nu Skin in any way. So I’m not some rep of Nu Skin just trying to convince you to join. [/box]
In this post I want to dig into this company to analyze whether it is a NuSkin scam or not, I’ll tell you why people say it’s a Nu Skin scam, and I’ll reveal to you one of the biggest reasons NuSkin reps or any network marketer fails in our industry (I’m sure you’ve heard that 95% of people who join network marketing fail)…
Ok, so let me get the elephant out of the room right this second and answer the question if it’s a NuSkin scam. Based on my research of the company, it is absolutely NOT a NuSkin scam. Again, it is NOT a NuSkun scam!
A really simple test to determine whether a network marketing company is a scam or a legitimate company is to look at the age of the company. This is something that no company, no person can manipulate. If a network marketing company was a scam or if it was a true illegal NuSkin pyramid scheme, than that would be found out very, very quickly by the distributors who have joined the company. As the size of the company grows, too many people get involved and someone WILL let that cat out of the bag. You’ll then see that company appear and then they will disappear just as quickly.
Nu Skin was founded in 1984, so they have been around for 27 years! They are also an INTERNATIONAL company that is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). Nu Skin currently has over 800,000 active independent distributors and preferred customers. Just that fact alone that they are on the NYSE shows that they undergo some pretty deep scrutiny since they are a public company.
There is without a doubt NO NuSkin scam! If that is the case, then why do people STILL say it’s a NuSkin scam?
Now I want to give you the reasons despite it not being a NuSkin scam, why people still say it’s a NuSkin scam…
Lack of proper due diligence. You don’t have this problem since you are obviously doing your research on the so called “NuSkin scam” but there are a lot of people that sign up without doing the proper research. They don’t understand that they are getting involved in a business that takes time, hard work and consistency. It isn’t like a job where you punch in and punch out at the time clock and then you get a pay check for the hours you worked.
This risk of failure is very, very high, but the REWARD, or money that you can make in Nu Skin is limitless. You’ll sometimes get some of these people who fail (typically it’s their own fault, but they won’t admit that) who will go around on the Internet and yell and scream and say it’s a NuSkin scam when in fact it was there very own fault that they failed.
Not treating the business like a business. It is so freakin easy to get involved with any network marketing company. You can literally pay a few hundred dollars up to a thousand dollars and BAM you’re in and you’ve got the step by step how to’s and you’re given permission to leverage the company’s brand names and products. The cost to join is penny’s when compared to joining a franchise (where it can cost $10,000, $100,000, $500,000+ to get involved). So a lot of people will join and they won’t treat it like a real business.
They then don’t make any money or they lose money, and then they cry to the world saying it’s a NuSkin scam.
Not getting proper marketing training. This is probably one of the biggest reasons people fail in network marketing (and then say it’s a NuSkin scam). They don’t understand the critical importance of marketing themselves so they are generating a constant stream of high quality leads and therefore getting new customers and recruiting new reps. Leads are the lifeblood of any network marketing business, so without leads, you do NOT have a business.
The majority of network marketing companies will have you first focus on your warm market- your family friends, coworkers, your UPS guy or gal, etc. But then the big problem comes once you exhaust your warm market. What do you do then? What do you do if you don’t want to approach your warm market in the first place?
A lot of people turn to the Internet (like I did) and they try to build their network marketing business online. While the Internet is an incredible endless source of leads, it is a very complicated beast that is hard to tame and to figure out. I spent months and months struggling (wasting lots of time and $1,000’s and $1,000’s) and trying to figure it out on my own until I discovered a training platform and lead generation system that I still use today. This system gave me the step by step blueprint I needed for success on the Internet and lead generation.
So you now know it’s not a NuSkin scam so what the heck is next? Well, if you truly want success in your Nu Skin business (or ANY home based business) you absolutely must have a step by step blueprint and system for lead generation.
