Vemma Energy Drinks and the Kids
Whether you say vemma or veema….It’s over.
….For now anyways.
What will Vemma reps do now?
Vemma got shut down as of the this posting.
Don’t they just ruin everything?
What’s the scoop?
The FTC (Federal Trade Commission) shut ‘er down! They were basing this decision on something about college kids drinking and selling too much of it.
Wait a minute….isn’t 18 the legal age to do whatever the crap you want?
Maybe I’m missing something.
It’s not like Vemma was selling alcohol to underage people right?
We live in a world where marijuana is starting to become legalized and we are now starting to attack energy drinks.
Anyone see a problem with this?
Are you sick of risking your hard earned extra income from mlm online opportunities? Try something different, take a peek at what Brad has to say:
Ok…so if you made it past the video and you STiLL want to know about this Vemma Scam….roll up your sleeves because it’s going to get deep in here.
(speaking of which…did you know New York use to haul their sludge to Denver?)
Vemma had Vemma products. Real products….not just digital copies and old junk from 8 years ago like Empower Network.
So…they get shut down and Empower Network still gets to sell their $3000 outdated digital ASSets?
So here is what the FTC says about Vemma in a nutshell: They promised high income potential in order to get people to join Vemma.
Listen Jessica Rich of the FTC….is that honestly one of the reasons you shut down VEMMA?
You shut them down on a PROMISE of POTENTIAL.
I hate to call bullshit on this…but….Bullshit.
EVERY mlm out there promises POTENTIAL.
Heck…I promise you that you can make lots of money for just being a live! And it’s the truth!
Potential is not a reason to shut someone down.
Now let me be honest here and tell you I didn’t read every last detail of the FTC documentation but when you see a quote talking about a potential and you know a company has product that anyone can sell if they work their rectums off..then doesn’t that give clearance for the truth??
Of course it does.
When something like this happens, and it often does, I have to ask myself how much politics and money is involved.
I have to wonder if Veema peeps just pissed off the wrong guy….or gal.
Why do I say this?
Because…really. There are thousands of companies out there that do the exact same thing as Veema and they are going exceptionally strong.
College kids or not….there are 50 year olds who are in college. That’s a cope out.
Vemma: An Illegal Pyramid?
And…the illegal pyramid scheme has come up as well. Here’s the thing….we need to really check out this Vemma compensation plan to see if Veema is really a scam.
It’s the only thing we can do to make any sense of this right?
There is a discussion out there that Vemma has a monthy PV (didn’t I just talk about PV with the TruVision Health Compensation Plan?) that is heavily promoted via autoshipping (most mlms do this…see beachbody comp plan, Limu comp plan…etc…etc…I could go on and on)
The problem with PV? (personally I hate it) PV can create a situation where money is spent in order to gain traction in the way that you earn bonuses and move up in ranks in the Vemma compensation plan. There is not a focus on Vemma products but rather on advancing in ranks. Vemma reps are NOT the only ones that do this.
There are Beachbody coaches out there that make their spouses coaches just to meet their emerald rankings. Heck, you can have a whole family in your company in order to make bank on the bonuses and just do all the work yourself.
Vemma says everyone likes their products so people would be buying tons of it anyways…but wait….I like my mlm products, but I seriously don’t need the amount it would require of me to make the bonus rankings.
What is eternally frustrating is that I know I could “cheat” by buying more product to meet PV and advance in ranks, however…my ethical side always gets the better of me.
I like to put my head down at night knowing what the truth is and knowing I have nothing to hide. It’s just not my style to “cheat the system” and is the main reason I whole heartedly believe in karma.
Speaking of which…maybe Vemma was shut down by a complaint of someone who was probably trying to cheat the ranking system and reported it and rallies up a bunch of other mlm peeps to join them.
Sadly, angry mobs are easy to form. Zombies follow zombies.
What’s even more crazy about the Vemma shut down? The BBB has them ranked with and A+. Not just an A…it’s an A+. You know? Well over perfect right?
Gah. It just has to be some sort of politics.
Does this post make you even more weary of mlms.
Even if your mlm company does everything right and you are in the best mlm company in the world (not saying Vemma was perfect or anything like that), you still risk the chance of losing it all.
It’s like a forest fire and you have to somehow pick up the charred remains of your crusty self and find a way to make money again and still pay the mortgage on your new home (you big spender you! How dare you live the American Scream)
OK…so..Vemma reps are left picking up the pieces. You can easily fall into the same sad situation.
What if you decided to find a way to make money outside of mlm online?
There is a way. Check it here
Or..keep reading. I’m cool with that too.
How can you cite a company for selling to college “kids”. 18…adult….18 adult.
It’s ok for 18 year olds to watch vaginas slapping up against metal poles and male weenies popping out at bachelorette parities, but God Forbid the energy drink or something less sexual be sold.
If you are an adult and you choose to spend money on Vemma…then it’s your choice. Just like if people choose to grow marijuana in their back yard. Choice.
Honestly…what’s worse…letting people make money off of legal or illegal products?
At least the college kids weren’t buying crack.
Or…maybe they were with the money they made from Vemma and that’s why everyone got so wild and crazy.
OR..maybe there were too many kids that got state or federal aid for their college tuition and they didn’t claim their Vemma earnings.
I could go on…but didn’t I say I would take a look at the Vemma Comp Plan?
I did. Vemma is over 10 years old.
Their products are based on Western Chinese Medicine and they sell drinks that are Infused with healthy things. (very similar to almost every other mlm out there)
Vemma focused a lot on energy drinks (think bluFrog type stuff)
Vemma Compensation Plan
In order to make money you have to
- Buy a starter pack (not abnormal!) that starts at around $500
- Commit to $74 a month on autoship. (ecky ecky ecky…..but not new or unique to any mlm)
The Starter Packs come with a QV value (quality volume) and come with a bunch of Vemma products that you can give away or try yourself or both.
- Vemma Affiliate Starter Pack – Contains over $500 worth of stuff and you pay about $500. 500QV
- Verve Starter Pack – Same deal as the Vemma Affiliate Starter
- Super Charged Vemma Affiliate Pack – $580 ish 500QV and over $600 worth of Vemma Product.
If you want to be a part of the Vemma Success Peeps get yourself the Vemma Success Kit for only $57.50. (ps…you don’t have to buy it with the Verve Affiliate Starter Pack or the Vemma Affiliate Starter Pack because it is included)
What’s in the kit?
- Vemma propaganda in the form of dvd’s, flyers, letters…etc.
- Lots of Vemma sales stuff you can use on your site and in person sales.
As with any mlm you have to remain ACTIVE.
How do you earn extra money with Vemma? (the bonus round!)
You have to stay active AND be qualified for bonuses and that means you have to be on autoship for Vemma for 60QV or 1 pack of Vemma JUST to be active. In order to qualify for cash, money, dollars you have to get a 2pack on autoship which is double the active volume. So essentially you pay $148 each month to make money.
Not too bad if you actually make money.
You can qualify in one of two ways:
- Buy $148 Vemma Products OR
- Sell about $300 in Vemma products which will get you about $150 in commission for your QV requirements
From there the Vemma compensation plan starts talking ab out completing a cycle and there I’m lost. Something about getting 120 PV and sign up one person in each of your 2 legs (bilevel compensation plan…like beachbody coaches compensation) And then you have to get a bunch of points in each leg and you get $20 per each cycle.
Again…lost me at the cycle thing.
If you wanna check it out, I found this Vemma video:
So after trying to understand if Vemma is a scam or not by checking out the Vemma comp plan…I still don’t really see where the scam is.
You see, almost all mlms I’ve reviewed have similar, if not harder to understand, compensation plans that take several read overs in order to even understand the first level of earning potential.
And that’s just it.
All MLMS are earning potentials.
They don’t guarantee money and they shouldn’t.
To do so would be about as stupid as colleges offering you degrees and guaranteeing that you will be a millionaire.
So…if you are lost and confused and you are former Vemma rep wondering what to do now or you were thinking of leaving Vemma before they got shut down….OR you are looking for the best mlm to join….just stop.
Take a deep breath. Maybe hop on over to these mentoring videos OR schedule a call with peeps that know the mlm world and left it for something better.
In less than a year in my mlm I have made NO money. IN less than a year in my coaching program, I have made thousands of dollars and that’s no joke.
For me, it’s an easy choice.
Hang out here a little while. Spy on me. Check out the mentoring videos or talk to one of my coaches.
You are not going to hurt my feelings if you don’t join, you’re just going to hurt your chances of succeeding with making money online like you want.
There’s a reason you are reading this post and I know it’s not because you wanted to know about me.
You want to make money online. You want to ditch your day job and work from home or wherever you want.
I did too and I’m well on my way to doing it.
You can do it too.
It’s that simple.
Do yourself a favor, get a one way ticket out of the rat race.
Schedule a call here.
Peace to you and your success making decision,
