For the last couple of days I’ve had a few people asked me about Modere and exactly what they are all about. Well, in this Modere review I would like to give you my personal unbiased review about this NEW network marketing opportunity and why you see some people promoting their products on social media sites like Facebook.
The first thing I want to do is remove the B.S, you are here because you want to know whether or not you can make money with this thing. The reason I say that is because I asked a few Modere reps why they join and the often say because they like the products, but when you take a look at their social media accounts all you see is promotions for the opportunity. But, before I jump into the compensation side of things let me give you a short background on what Modere is all about.
Modere officially open their doors in the United States in early 2014, basically they are very new to the network marketing space. They basically like to call their reps “social marketers” and basically their concept is using social media to share their products via their distributors. The concept is not new, in a sense I like to refer to them as Amway 2.0. In case you don’t know Amway is perhaps the biggest and oldest network marketing company in existence with thousands of product lines and services.
The reason I like to call Modere “Amway 2.0” is quite simple. They have not only similar product lines but also similar compensation plans, I’ll explain that a little later, but let’s talk about products.
There’s nothing wrong with taking an idea and improving it, however when it comes to products being offered through Modere honestly I see nothing special about them since there are about 20+ network marketing companies who also have the same products being offered. Here are some of the product lines they have:
- Personal Care Products
- Health and Wellness Products
- Household Care
- Nutrition Products
Now, please understand I’m not saying their products are bad. I have seen great reviews about their products online. They do have great variety for anyone who wishes to completely change their buying habits from others to Modere. They also have a customer only rewards program, basically people who only want to be customers can purchase product and earn points by referring other customers, as a result customers can earn incentives, this is completely separate from their distributors compensation plan so I did like that part because customers that do like their product have an incentive to share them. I see no problem with their product line but my main concern is the compensation plan, so let’s talk about that.
Can People Really Make Money In Modere?
Let’s be brutally honest, you want to know whether or not you can make money with Modere. According to their website Modere wants to be different from the other network marketing companies, most network marketing companies have a monthly autoship or volume requirement in place. Modere is no different than those, however they say that “you don’t have to be on autoship as long as you have enough customers to fill that monthly requirement”
Other companies have similar things in place where if you refer x amount of people your monthly autoships are covered. Now that sounds great on paper, the problem is most people who jump into network marketing have very little sales experience. The reality is that sharing Modere products on Facebook is not enough unless you have a big network of friends. The average person has between 100-250 friends on Facebook.
So the question is not whether you will share the products with your friends and family members which is what 98% of new “social marketers” do but how many will actually buy the products from you? That’s the real question, because if you can’t get enough customers to meet that monthly requirement you will have to buy the products for yourself which is what most distributors do.
Now let’s talk about money and the main reason why I decided Modere was not for me…
According to the Modere compensation plan you can make between 3%-5% from purchases made by social marketers you enroll in the business and also customers. Keep in mind I’m not mentioning their bonuses, but I like to focus more on the residual aspect of the business because that’s where the money is. But in case you don’t believe me I took this straight from their PDF explaining the comp plan:
Hopefully you can see I was not lying, but if you don’t understand what that means let me explain. Modere might have some great products but when you are in business to make money you want to maximize the compensation plan by being able to make money without the need of recruiting 100’s if not 1,000’s of people to make any real money. That’s exactly what you’ll have to do since 3%-5% is honestly complete garbage, I say that because I can name 100 different network marketing companies who pay at least 10% commissions on multiple levels.
Modere makes it sound like it’s all via social media, the reality is that in order to grow a big team and make any real money you will have to learn to recruit like a mad man or sell like a mad woman. Don’t think that you’ll sponsor thousands via social media because the reality is that the type of products that Modere sells and business model in place is aimed towards person-to-person aka “lots of meetings”. That’s just the brutal truth.
Do I believe Modere is a scam? My answer is NO, just like any other MLM it requires significant effort and hard work.
However, I can honestly say you have better chances joining Amway since they pay better, have more bonuses, better quality products and most importantly more credibility than Modere. And before you ask NO I’M NOT AN AMWAY REP. But hey, this is just my opinion and you are free to do as you want and wish you the best of luck in whatever decision you make. Thanks for reading and have an awesome day…
