- Rated 2 stars
2 / 5 (1 Reviewers)
When reading Herbalife reviews online, I can't exactly applaud what the typical distributors do in their attempts to market their products. I'm not bashing Herbalife here, to be fair it's not all bad, but as of now I can't give them more than a 2 star rating, and you'll get why in a bit. Feel free to give your own star rating to the general quality of Herbalife reviews you've seen online (just click the number of stars you feel they deserve), then read on to learn how you can have a 5 star Herbalife business (or any business) of your own...
Herbalife reviews on the internet are a dime a dozen. Sadly, few reviewers tell the truth on how you can get abundance of health and wealth – thus making a disservice to themselves and their reader!
Typical reviewers usually throw a bunch of dry and mundane information at you, either about the Herbalife products or the Herbalife home based business opportunity. Yup, when searching online you can easily find hyped up, yet boring testimonials from new, ambitious and enthusiastic distributors of the Herbalife company.
Their common trait is that they have no idea about how to present themselves or their products to the marketplace!
If you work with Herbalife or a company similar to Herbalife, then please avoid the rookie marketing mistake with your business. In this post, you’ll instead learn how professional internet marketers go about to promote health products. So, let’s dig in and find the truth about Herbalife and how to market like a pro.
Beware Of The Many Herbalife Reviews Online…
It’s also common to find poorly researched Herbalife reviews, usually done by marketing amateurs, selling shady marketing systems instead of giving proper information about the Herbalife opportunity. You can also find negative Herbalife reviews online made by salespeople of competing health companies.
So, who should you trust?
Before we dig in, let me first divide this article in two parts. In the first part I’m talking about the Herbalife shake reviews, and in the second part I’m discussing the Herbalife business reviews. Those are two very different reviews, but one would not exist without the other as you will understand in a bit.
Part 1: Herbalife Shake Reviews Gone Wild
The big majority of Herbalife distributors comply with the marketing rules of the company. No doubt, but there are things to be aware of…
You see, when certain distributors give their Herbalife reviews they will have you believe that you can walk on water and shoot fire out of your eyes. Simply by using the Herbalife shake!
Ok, that is obviously an exaggeration, but fact is, a small portion of distributors go way too far when talking about how great the products are. Such Herbalife reviews are meant well by the distributor, but reflects poorly on other distributors, the company and the products.
So That Begs The Question: Does Herbalife Work?
To answer that I have to give a little lesson in history… Back in 1980 a man by the name of Mark Hughes founded Herbalife. And get this; his first sales were made from the trunk of his car in the streets of Los Angeles!
Goal-driven fellow, right? Picture him in the streets, selling white vanilla flavored powder, packed in small plastic bags!
Even so, through hard work using a proven business plan, the products began to spread from person to person, from town to town, from state to state, from country to country. Today, as I write this article about Herbalife reviews, the products are sold in more than 80 countries.
The company has undeniably grown to be a global movement, with millions of happy customers getting good results. So, does Herbalife work? Yes, I’ll say so. I think it would be completely impossible to create such a big brand like Herbalife is today without products that work very well.
So, is the Herbalife shake the best? Well, yes and no. Listen, Herbalife products are easy to buy. You can get them almost wherever you find yourself in the world. That can’t always be said about competing herbal meal replacements! It’s indeed way better than the alternatives in many countries.
- Does it taste good? Sure, to me it’s one of the best tasting shakes out there.
- Is it easy to prepare and drink? Yes, its consistence is great and you’ll always get a smooth shake.
- Is it GMO free and organic? Sadly, NO! This is something I wish Herbalife would take more seriously.
- Is it vegan? It does also come as a dairy free and gluten free version for vegans.
- Is it RAW and natural? No, its ingredient list is rather long with Sucralose being one of them. In that regard, it can not compete with RAW brands like Sunwarrior who only has about 5 ingredients.
- Does it get you results? Yup, people all over the globe reach their goals using Herbalife shakes.
You see, it’s basically a matter of availability and convenience for people, including me. Yup, Herbalife shakes are consumed on a regular basis in my household. I am no Herbalife distributor, but my wife decided to become one several years ago. I consider myself one of her brightest customers with a personal testimonial that Herbalife work! But this article is not about me, so I’ll leave my own story out of it for now – we’re discussing Herbalife reviews in general here.
Herbalife has a wide range of products today. Its portfolio is made up by:
- general well-being products.
- weight loss products.
- cosmetic products.
- and also sports performance products with their Herbalife 24 series.
The flagship product is (and always will be) the Herbalife Formula 1 shake. This shake comes in many different flavors and has vegan, soy free, dairy free and gluten free versions available as well. The Formula 1 shake was the one Mark started selling from the streets back in 1980, and it’s used for both weight loss and muscle building.
The Products Are A Blend Of Technology And Nature
By using potent chinese herbs together with the latest technology, they are able to serve you a tasty and healthy shake with lots of health benefits. Actually, one of my reasons for using the shake is quite simple…
Let me paint a picture of why I think it’s a good idea to use Herbalife shakes…
Let’s say you get access to a team of nutritional experts and doctors. Now, to get a healthy meal, you send them to the grocery store to shop for food that is good for you. To get the most out the foods nutritional value, they even prepare the meal and serve it to you like a delicious dish.
That is essentially what you get when you use the Herbalife shake. Great scientists, nutritional experts and doctors choose the healthiest of food. They grind it into powder and you get to prepare a highly nutritional, yet tasteful shake in less than a minute.
Ok, ok. So it might not compare to the best GMO free RAW vegan shakes on the market, but as previously said: It’s way better than the alternatives in most countries. As a superfood nutritionist, I find it impossible to follow my own advice all the time. So, I think of it as my “nutrient insurance” when I’m getting a dose of Herbalife shake every now and then.
Part 2: The Herbalife Business Reviews
The other aspect of Herbalife reviews are the ones talking about the home based business opportunity. As I said earlier, great products would not get sold in the marketplace if they did not have a proven business plan. As well, a proven business plan would be no good without great products.
Can Herbalife reviews that talk about the business opportunity be trusted?
Yes, as I just answered, with great products a great business plan follows, and vice versa. By the mere fact that Herbalife now exists in over 80 countries and has become a global movement should be proof enough. The CEO, Michael O. Johnson, is certainly steering the Herbalife brand towards a bright future.
If only every single Herbalife distributor could steer their own business in the same manner! The Herbalife home business reviews I’ve seen often just talk about the company, the products, the history, the business compensation plan and all the facts and numbers associated with it.
Most of them never mention the one thing that will make or break your career in business. The one thing that will enable you to turn eyeballs, successfully bringing anything out to the marketplace – especially good products like Herbalife which are accompanied with a very lucrative business plan.
The skill of marketing!
And this is weird, given how important marketing is to actually sell products. If you ask me, I am much more interested in how I actually can sell products and earn money, than knowing every bit and piece of information about a company or a product.
The business philosopher and close friend of Mark Hughes, Jim Rohn, always delivered his message in words you could understand. Jim knew that people remember stories, not facts. If you want to present an enticing opportunity to others when writing a Herbalife review, then tell a personal and compelling story:
- why you’re in business
- how you do business.
- what you feel when succeeding.
Don’t give away facts upon facts to your prospects, because you’ll never manage to sell them on logic. You will however manage to sell them on feelings.
“Be brief on the logic and reason portion of your presentation. There are probably about a thousand facts about an automobile, but you don’t need them all to make a decision. About a half dozen will do.” — Jim Rohn
How To Place Your Business In Front Of Thousands
By using modern marketing tools and by taking easy-to-understand training courses, you can get lots of eyeballs turning your way. For instance, you can blog regularly and place your stories and presentations in front of thousands of potential customers with their credit card in hand.
It literally means that you have the potential to reach out to millions of people!
Most Herbalife reviews don’t tell you that, but this is without doubt the single most important thing to get right when you want to succeed as an Herbalife distributor. You have to place your business in front of hundreds and even thousands of people, and the only way to do that is to get educated with the proper training and using the right tools.
Not to impress you, but to press upon this, I can tell you from my own experience. Online marketing systems have enabled me to sign people up in various businesses without even picking up the phone. No persuading. No dealing with objections. Just a proven system that works for me on autopilot.
I am not telling you it’s easy. Nor am I telling you it’s hard. But it does require some work on your end. The only way I am able to do it, is because I have the marketing figured out. Yes, I’ve done the work for a long time and I still do. It’s placing me and my businesses in front of lots of people everyday.
So, when someone decide to join, I have a system that automatically let them join.
Well, like it or not, but that is the true essence of an online business on autopilot! Again, please note that I do a lot of work and marketing on my computer to make these things happen. The beauty of the online systems I use is that I get paid on my initial work over and over. When your content is online it works for you 24/7 forever after, you know.
The Herbalife Business Plan And How To Become A Marketer
The Herbalife business plan is too complicated to even begin covering in a single blogpost. Most Herbalife reviews that try to write about the compensation plan becomes a dry and drowsy read. Basically, what you need to know is that you get paid when you (or someone in your team) sell products.
That’s about as much as I care to talk about it. The rest is covered in the training package that you receive if you should sign up as a distributor.
To become a distributor you have to buy an IBP, which is short for International Business Pack. This pack is priced differently from country to country. In the US, it’s less than 100 dollars as of this writing. I think it’s a pretty good deal to be able to start a business for less than 100 bucks. If you have any business experience, I’m sure you’ll agree.
If you learn how to market, you could turn that hundred dollar bill into thousands and create an extraordinary lifestyle for you and your family. You really just have to get the marketing right, and I intentionally press upon this fact quite a bit stronger than what you ever have read in other Herbalife reviews. It’s the most important thing to get right!
Look at it this way, if you are a Herbalife distributor or thinking about becoming one: You are NOT a distributor, but a marketer. Having that little difference in mindset might just break or make your career in your home-based business!
Honestly, it’s the marketing tools and skills that will create the lifestyle you dream about. Merely having access to great Herbalife products that work is not enough. Because, tell me, those shakes ain’t gonna sell themselves, are they?
Disclaimer: When in business, you only get paid when products are sold. This takes effort, time and investment. Don’t believe that you will get success automatically, just because someone else is doing it. Do your due diligence and check the disclaimers of any company before you join.
