Acai-Plus Exposed – The secret truth about Acai Plus and Triunity Corporation
Acai-Plus and Triunity – Life-Changing Nutritional Product and Awesome Business Opportunity?... Or Just Another Overhyped Waste of Time and Money?
My name is Steven Sashen… I can’t bamboozle you with impressive “sounding” letters after my name. I’m not a doctor or a chiropractor. I’m not in the health care profession. I was, though, a pre-med at Duke University and have been actively involved with nutritional products for over 30 years, since my days as a competitive diver and All-American gymnast.
And probably like you, I’m always on the lookout for any product that can improve my health and well-being.
Perhaps unlike you, though, in the last 12 years I’ve been one of the top distributors in 5 nutritional MLM companies, I’ve consulted for half a dozen nutritional companies, and 6 years ago at the age of 38 I achieved the “goal” of network marketing – financial freedom. I was making enough passive income to stop working for money… so I stopped!
Put all that together, and I know a thing or two about both nutritional products and the MLM (or Network Marketing) and Home-Business game.
I'm SICK of hearing about "The Great New Thing"
A few weeks ago, my friend Rebecca called me, with her usual excitement (in fact, she called 4 times on every one of my 3 phone numbers, just to find me!).
“I found this GREAT product and this incredible company!” she exploded.
One of the best things about being retired is the ability to ignore anyone who approaches me with a “miracle product” or a business that is “guaranteed” to make me millions of dollars while cleaning my toenails by the pool.
I tried to be polite and get Rebecca off the phone at the same time. “Email me some info and I’ll take a look.”
Over the next few days, Rebecca called back over and over, emailed me dozens of times and, basically, wouldn’t leave me alone.
As I was about to delete yet another of her emails, it occurred to me that Rebecca had made me a lot of money over the years and she also had a knack for finding good deals. I owed it to her to at least check out what had her so excited.
Uh-oh... it's Acai and TriUnity
Rebecca pointed me to Acai-Plus – the liquid nutritional supplement – and TriUnity, the company producing Acai Plus and selling it via MLM (or Network Marketing).
Within 10 seconds of looking at the site, I spotted 3 GLARING red flags, both about the product and the company -- I’ll tell you what they were in a moment, but first, I need to tell you where my head’s at when it comes to nutritional products and MLM.
Now, that said, let me tell you what I do like.
Okay so put together my particular biases and Acai-Plus looked interesting. Liquid supplement, anti-oxidant, vitamin/mineral... okay, let’s see what they say is in the bottle.
RED FLAG #1 -- A supermarket aisle's worth of ingredients... are you kidding me?!
There are a LOT of ingredients in Acai Plus. Nowhere on the website does it say HOW MUCH of each ingredient there is in a bottle, let alone in the one- or two-ounce serving they recommend you take each day.
I’ve been in liquid nutritional packaging plants. A good friend of mine develops liquid nutritional products for a living. I know for a fact that if you put a decent amount of ALL those ingredients in one bottle… it would look and taste like sludge.
I contacted the company and suggested they be a bit more forthcoming about what’s really in the Acai Plus bottle.
I'll say more about what's in the bottle in a moment.
But all that said, the more I looked at Acai Plus, the more I was curious about trying it. Anti-oxidant, liquid nutrition, ingredients I like and believe in… what the heck.
Besides, it says right on the website FREE BOTTLE!
RED FLAG #2 – You do not get a FREE bottle of Acai Plus
I spotted this flag pretty quickly too. The real deal is: When you agree to buy a SECOND bottle at full price, you can get your FIRST bottle for only $7.
So, it’s kind of a “buy one get one free” deal and the company says that the $7 is for shipping and handling. But unless the bottle is being packaged and delivered by Bill Gates, I don’t know how they can say it costs 7 bucks to get it from Arizona to Colorado.
But, okay, I get it, they’re a new company and they’re trying to make a splash. “Free Bottle” is a great marketing message. It’s not 100% accurate, but, hey, if I’m going to try a product, I’ll give it 3-6 months, anyway, so “buy one, get one for $7” is actually a pretty good deal.
Well, “pretty good deal” is in the eye of the beholder… a bottle of Acai Plus is $32 and let’s not mince words (or dollars)… that’s not cheap. It’s about $8-15 more than various liquid products at the Vitamin Cottage or Whole Foods in my neighborhood. It’s $20 more than the vile-tasting stuff I bought at Costco once (and couldn’t force myself to finish).
(UPDATE -- I was in Whole Foods yesterday and found bottles of Acai, Goji and Mangosteen for $35! That's MORE THAN Acai-Plus!)
Most Network Marketing companies try to justify the price of their products with various, um, how can I put this? Lies. I won’t even bore you with them, because the bottom line is that they charge what they do so there’s enough cash to pay the company and the distributors. End of story… except that this brings us to…
RED FLAG #3 – RIDICULOUS income claims
The website practically screams that you’ll make $250,000/year doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING but buying Acai Plus every month! What a GREAT DEAL! I mean, heck, what’s $32/month when you can make more than $20,000/month by doing nothing!?
Okay, back to the money.
I’ll admit that making a cool quarter million while you eat bon-bons by the pool is awesome… except for the fact that it’s utter and complete nonsense.
Wait, let me clarify that.
It’s 100% total hogwash.
Okay, let me be more specific. ;-)
It’s “mathematically possible” that you could make that kind of money doing absolutely no work whatsoever and just buying and enjoying Acai Plus every month. But it’s also mathematically possible that I’ll win the lottery 5 times in a row. And it’s mathematically possible that the correct succession of people will die and I’ll be the King of England. And it’s mathematically possible that the Earth will start rotating backwards at 11:53pm on September 27, 2008.
In other words, while you COULD make $250k by doing nothing but taking Acai Plus, I wouldn’t bank on it (literally).
TriUnity can make this claim because of the “3x4 forced matrix” compensation plan with “4th level matching bonuses,” “weekly fast start bonuses,” “company matching bonuses” and… blah, blah, blah.
You don’t need to know what any of that means. But, if you do (and I do, since I’ve helped companies design compensation plans) it’s actually pretty interesting. Here’s why:
The “Forced Matrix” … All this means is that if the people who joined the company before you promote the product and/or the business, some of the people they bring into the company will end up in your “organization” and you’ll get commissions from those people’s purchases.
If you want to make money, I beg of you, DO NOT rely on the "kindness of others"
In most companies, I would never even think about, let alone count on, getting “spillover” income thanks to the people above me in the company. I’ve been in lots of matrixes and I have rarely seen a penny from the people “above me.”
But as I talked to Rebecca and analyzed the company, I discovered a unique factor about this company where I knew the matrix might have some value… I’ll tell you what that factor is and whether there is any value in it in a moment.
The “4th level matching bonus.” Now this intrigued me. A lot. What it means is: In the matrix structure, there can be up to 81 people on your “4th level.” And whatever someone on your 4th level earns, you earn. If she earns $10, you can get a $10 “matching bonus.” If she earns $100, that's an extra $100.
Now it could take a little while before you get anyone on your 4th level (in a moment I’ll tell you about who is, and ISN’T on my 4th level), and it could take a little while after that until those 4th level people are making any money. But, if it took a year to get those 81 people, and all they made was $10 each… that’s an extra $810/month ON TOP of any other commissions you’re getting.
$810 may not be retirement money, but it is make-your-car-
And, if it took another year... or two... until, on average, those 4th level people were making $100/month… well that’s $8,100 a MONTH for you (almost $100k/year)… now we’re heading towards retirement money.
There’s much more to why the matrix and the 4th level bonus make a powerful compensation plan in the LONG TERM, feel free to email if you want to hear about all that. But in the short term, TriUnity has done something quite nice. Namley…
Fast Start bonuses – If you tell anyone about Acai-Plus (and I’ll tell you if you’ll want to in a bit), depending on how many bottles they buy, you can earn $15-$60. And TriUnity pays these bonuses each week. Some companies only let you earn up to “your own rank.” In other words, there are 3 ranks in the company – Silver, Gold, Platinum. In some companies, if you’re a Silver, and someone you refer joins as a Platinum, you only earn the “Silver amount” of the commission. But TriUnity pays out the whole commission to you, no matter what level you’re at. This is, I’ll admit, quite fair and admirable.
Company bonuses – If you decide to build your business (and I’ll tell you whether that’s even possible in a sec), you can get paid from 2 different company-wide bonuses… If you introduce 5 people in a month to Acai Plus, you can split 2% of the total commissionable income in the ENTIRE COMPANY with the other people who did the same. If you have 15 active member/customers that you’ve introduced to the company, you’ll be part of another group that splits an additional 2% of the entire commissionable income in the company.
In one company where I was a top earner, a bonus like this one DOUBLED my check every month.
How you really make money in MLM… what the heavy hitters will NEVER tell you
When I mentioned “telling anyone about the product," did you break out into a sweat or start to panic?
I’ll let you in on a secret. Out of the hundreds of $100,000+/year earners I know, I can count on one hand the number who got to that level by telling their friends and family about the product or the business.
In fact, I could probably have a freak chain saw accident and still have enough leftover fingers for counting the number of successful network marketers who got there by recruiting friends and family.
There are two reasons for this. First is that your friends and family may be the RIGHT people to be taking the product, but they are probably the wrong people to be in the business. If you were starting an accounting firm, would you try to get your friends and family to join your company as bookkeepers? (If your family is made up of accountants, substitute “race car drivers”.)
Second, 99.9 times out of 100, if you’re making a lot of money in MLM, it’s because of 2-4 people in your organization who are AWESOME salesmen/women and networkers. And 99.99 times out of 100, you had nothing to do with getting them into your organization.
You’re ONLY job in MLM is to find people who WANT to be in the business, who are RIGHT for the business… and point them to the tools they need to do the same thing so that, hopefully, eventually, those 2-4 “big fish” will show up in your organization. You don't want to convince people to join and you don't want to "train" the ones who do.
Not one person I know who made money in MLM needed training, they just needed to be set loose with the right tools.
Now the odds are also really good that you have NO IDEA how to find people who want to be in the business, let alone who might be right for the business.
That's one of the big secrets THERE IS NO WAY TO KNOW in advance. So you're only job is to find as many people as you can who MIGHT be right, have them do the same, and then see what happens.
What a relief, a company that knows most people don't know what they're doing! ;-)
This brings us to something I saw about TriUnity that impressed me (they haven’t done it quite right yet, but they're getting there).
TriUnity says they're working with a company that actively does all the recruiting and qualifying of prospects. They’re so good that some tests have shown as many as 50% of their prospects join TriUnity!
And, it’s possible that you could get those people in your business without ever talking to them. EVER!
Obviously, it's pretty easy to say to someone, "Come join, sign up for this service, and let some professionals run your business." I think it's great that TriUnity is being pro-active on this.
I’ll tell you how to get access to that service in a moment… but first...
I BEG OF YOU... ignore the money!
You may be thinking, "Hmmm... with that kind of help, I might be able to make money." Ignore the income potential!
Why? Because in business there's a more important question:
What's my RISK?
In other words, it's more important to know what you could LOSE, not what you could MAKE. What you could make is out of your control, but what you can lose is totally up to you!
When I did the math, here's what I realized. You can try Acai-Plus and the TriUnity business for three months for as little as $80!
In three months, you'll have a decent sense of how this business works and if you want to do it. And, if you actually see the system working, or tell anyone about Acai Plus, then your risk is even lower because you'll get commission checks!
Can you find another business that you can test for $80? I can't. And I don't know about you, but I've wasted 10 times that much money on things with way less possibility than Acai Plus!
The downside was SO SMALL that there was no reason not to try Acai Plus.
Okay, so I got Acai-Plus …. What happened?
Acai-Plus comes in a clear bottle with an ugly-ish label. And the liquid inside… well it looked like brown sludge!
There was a lot of, ummm, something, on the bottom of the bottle, so it needed a good shake.
I took the sludge-y look and the sediment as a good sign. It proved there was actually something IN the Acai Plus bottle! (my friend the product developer said that if it looked any different it would prove they had almost none of the nutrients they promised).
Looking at the label, I was impressed – 100% of Vitamin A, C, B6, B12. Low sugar,… . in a one ounce serving.
I unscrewed the cap and removed the protective seal. I wanted to try an ounce… but the bottle doesn’t come with any convenient way of measuring. No one-ounce cap to use. This is a minor, but relevant, oversight.
Oh, well, I just gave it a swig.
I was shocked. I had to take another swig to see if my first impression was right. It was. I gave the Acai Plus bottle to my wife. She scrunched up her nose, but tried it anyway.
“Hey, this is really good!” she said. “No vitamin/mineral aftertaste!”
“It actually tastes like the fruits that are in it!" I said.
In a nutshell… I love the product.
Every morning, I take a swig out of the Acai Plus bottle. During the day, when I walk by the fridge, I tend to take a little more. I put it in smoothies. I mix it with other juices. I practically have to stop myself from drinking it because we’re getting 2 bottles/month and we always run out before the month ends! (I’ll probably start ordering more each month soon.)
I contacted the company and asked them to publish the ORAC value (a measure of anti-oxidant strength). But, honestly, I don’t care if it’s not as strong as other anti-oxidants I’ve taken… because I don’t take those any longer since I can’t stand how they taste. So, over time, I figure I’m getting more anti-oxidant value from Acai-Plus since I’m actually taking the product regularly.
Let me say that again to really hammer home the point. Don't even bother comparing Acai Plus to other products. Why? Because I've tried the other products and they taste HORRIBLE. But Acai-Plus tastes so good, you'll actually take it!
Okay... and then?
Now here’s the part where I’m supposed to tell you how my life changed since I started taking Acai-Plus. How I grew a new arm or lost 50 pounds or won the lottery.
Let me tell you something about product testimonials.
If you give enough people enough corrugated cardboard to eat every day, at the end of a month you would get some great testimonials. If you give people enough WATER to drink every day, you’ll get some great testimonials.
Testimonials are meaningless.
Why? Because they happened to SOMEONE ELSE! Your body isn’t their body. You don’t need what they need. You don’t react the way they react.
Remember, Acai-Plus is a foundation product, an antioxidant and vitamin/mineral/enzyme supplement. It’s not about miracles. It’s about long-term stable health.
For me, frankly, the best testimonial I can give is that 3 months into taking Acai Plus, I’m still taking it! Usually, I only last about 2-3 weeks on a product, not 3+ months!
On the business side, though, I do have a testimonial I'd like to give.
I told two people about this company and product because I knew they would be interested. One signed up. He’s on fire. He’s found a bunch of people who want to try Acai Plus or be in the business. Within 3 weeks, I had people on my 4th level! I can’t wait to see what happens as they build their business.
But that’s not the best part. I said before that I’d tell you the one factor I found about TriUnity that makes the matrix interesting. Well that factor is that the company is new and there are some people at the “top” who want to make a LOT of money, so they’re working really hard.
And I’m VERY close to the top… so, in theory, the spillover effect of the matrix SHOULD work.
Well, it’s working
In less than 6 weeks, I saw over
I’ve done the math. Even if that trend slows down by 50%, that's a pace to get to about $53,000 this year… it’s not $250,000, but it’s enough to for that pedicure by the pool.
Of course, that's a *could earn* amount... who knows what WILL happen between now and 12 months from now. But, more importantly, what I could earn isn't important. The question is: What does this mean for you?
Well, when I saw my business growing without any effort, guess what I started doing. I started imagining what would happen if I put in some effort! So now I’m one of those people who is helping those who join after me!
If you join, I could be helping build your business the same way people “upline” from me are building mine!
Which brings me to the summation of my analysis:
I like Acai-Plus a lot... we never have any Acai Plus left over at the end of the month (let alone cases of it sitting in the garage). Is it a miracle product? Of course not (remember, there’s no such thing!) Is Acai Plus a GOOD product? I think so. Should you try it for a couple months? Why not?
I like Tri-Unity. Perfect company? There’s no such thing. But is it worth giving 6-12 months of time to see how it does (especially given the smart marketing they’re doing)? DEFINITELY.
And, remember, your downside risk is SO LOW, there's no reason not to give Acai Plus and Triunity International a try.
