Simply Naturals appears to have launched in 2012 and are based out of Surrey in the United Kingdom. The company operates in the health and nutrition MLM niche and lists a Peter Willoughby as CEO on their website. Prior to this he was employed by The heart of forex and probability meter Benson Corporate Finance specializing in the technology and IT sectors and entered the referral marketing sector in 1997. Simply Naturals appears to be the only MLM venture Willoughby has headed up, although I’m a little unsure of the specifics.
Simply Naturals has been established to improve the quality of people’s lives through true health and true wealth. As we enter a new era of health awareness, coupled with ever increasing life expectancy, the quest for good health and wellness has never been so important. November 2006, in which Elmer G. As you have been informed, I have sold my interest in U. Simply Naturals obviously existed before 2012, so I’m not sure what’s going on in that first cited newsletter. It appears Heinrich was running U. He got out in 2006 by selling his share in the company to Willoughby, and both companies have been under Willoughby’s control since.
Naturals meanwhile is still up and running and appears to function as an independent opportunity selling the same products as Simply Natural. Why Willoughby continues to use two different company names is a mystery to me, I certainly found it confusing. None of this is explained or clarified on either the Simply Naturals or U. For the purpose of clarification on this review, it should be known that I’m using Simply Naturals’ marketing material. Read on for a full review of the Simply Naturals MLM business opportunity. The Simply Naturals Product Line Simply Naturals operate in the health and wellness MLM niche, marketing a range of mineral-based supplements.
The world’s first and only, great tasting effervescent wafer containing 600 milligrams of 75 Pure Plant Derived Minerals. Sizzling Minerals is the most important product available for fulfilling the nutritional needs for the entire family. 97 and is available in cherry berry, orange, lemon lime and natural flavours. Shares in a company-wide Bonus Pool are also offered at the two top-tier affiliate membership ranks. Affiliate Membership Ranks There are eight affiliate membership ranks within the Simply Naturals compensation plan. Unfortunately Simply Naturals do not provide rank qualification criteria in their publicly available compensation plan material. Retail Commissions Simply Naturals offer retail commissions on all retail customer product orders.
Unilevel Commissions Residual commissions in Simply Natural are paid out using a unilevel compensation structure. If any of these personally recruited level 1 affiliates go on to recruit new affiliates of their own, they are placed on level 2 of the original affiliate’s unilevel team. If any level 2 affiliates go on to recruit new affiliates they are placed on level 3 and so on and so forth down a theoretically infinite number of levels. When a Simply Naturals affiliate reaches the Manager rank, they are paid an infinity bonus on their unilevel team. The Infinity bonus extends payable unilevel commissions down a theoretical infinite number of levels. Note that each of these percentage levels is cumulative, with affiliates paid their percentage share according to their affiliate membership rank. Senior Executive Director ranked affiliates receive 1 share in the pool and Global Marketing Directors receive 3 shares.
Conclusion Do you want to be a millionaire? We could already show you some very impressive earnings figures and projections that would cause you to join immediately. However, we don’t need to do that. Sizzling Minerals’, Mega Health product range, market potential and distributor benefits are more than enough to convince you to join this incredible business. I can’t really fault Simply Naturals as overall they offer a reasonably rounded business model. That said there are some concerns that should be addressed.
On the product side of things I’m a big believer in a balanced diet and as such am would not be convinced to purchase supplements outside of very specific medial reasons. One cannot deny the supplement market though so if an affiliate is able to find enough customers then Simply Natural’s products shouldn’t be too challenging to move. Sizzling Minerals product and capsule supplements would be easiest to market. Naturally it wouldn’t hurt to check the local competition first as shipping is something you’d need to consider when marketing Simply Naturals’ products. Internet marketing is of course possible but I think might be limited. The online supplement market is pretty cut-throat competitive and a replicated affiliate storefront just isn’t going to get any passive exposure. Moving on to the compensation plan, Simply Naturals offer a simple unilevel plan that pays out retail and residuals.
I found it easy to understand and there didn’t appear to be any obvious slant towards recruitment over retail. I will note the caveat that the company does not make available the qualification criteria for its affiliate membership ranks. There is a possibility that within this qualification criteria there’s an emphasis on recruitment, but without this information I can’t make a call either way. This I have to flag as it’s basic compensation plan information that should be made available to the general public.
I felt was an acceptable balance. 100 once-off commissions aren’t exactly going to leave people focusing solely on affiliate recruitment. That of course also doesn’t mean it can be discounted entirely. Assuming there’s no retail requirements in the affiliate membership ranks, I’d still advise checking with a potential upline as to how much of their personal sales volume is from recruited affiliates versus retail customers.
Oh and even though the Simply Naturals compensation plan material makes glittery promises about future shares options as a marketing tool, I’d strongly advise any affiliates against using this in their own personal marketing. Moreso if you’re in the US. Market with the products, not promises of being allocated future shares in the company. Why Simply Naturals themselves do this I can’t say but it’s certainly an eyebrow-raiser. I don’t know what the specific laws are in the UK but this sort of corporate marketing of the business opportunity would most certainly attract the attention of the SEC in the US.
Not so much over Simply Naturals’ plans to go public, but in that it calls into question the motivation behind affiliates joining the company. If it’s on the expectation of allocated shares increasing in value then there’s a problem. Just imagine how excited the 10,000 millionaires who work for Microsoft are now after receiving their share option allocations. That the shares aren’t currently pegged to any specific dollar value is something, but why offer the them at all until you’ve actually gone public?
