Organo Gold offers various products but the one we hear a lot about is their coffee and all know how much coffee we all drink,so is this a viable work from home business?
Organo Gold specialize in providing supplements and beverages based on the Ganoderma mushroom, a mushroom which has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years.
Currently they are open in 13 countries for business: the USA, Canada, Scotland, Greece,Germany, UK, Austria,Mexico, Dominican Republic, The Netherlands, Jamaica, Philippines, and Peru, while expanding in 2012 to numerous other countries. Organo Gold has formed a collaboration with the Napoleon Hill Foundation.
Organo Gold Products:
Though they sell different health supplements, in both capsule and powder form, as well as skin care products, their real claim to fame is the Organo Gold Coffee as we mentioned above.
Can you earn a reasonable income with Organo Gold?
Organo Gold’s Binary Compensation Plan has the philosophy to encourage and promote the sale of Organo Gold products on a reoccurring basis. To begin as an Organo Gold Distributor, you must first purchase a Promotional Builder Pack at one of three different levels. This is fine as we all know that recurring sales means residual income.
The Bronze Pack will cost $199
Silver Pack $499,
Gold Pack $1299.
As with most MLMs, you are required to purchase your products wholesale upfront, and then sell them to your customers at the marked up retail price. The retail price of Organo Gold products must be at least 50% marked up over the cost of wholesale items, however, if you choose to sell the items at a steeper price mark up, you can also do that.
Health Claims of the Organo Gold Products:
OrganoGold makes many claims on their website about their products. Unfortunately, Organo Gold products are not FDA approved, and the term “organic” in the United States only applies to products which have been verified organic based on a set of standards.
Ganoderma has never been “proven” to do anything health related. Many universities in the US are currently running studies on this mushroom and the benefits it may have, but there have not been any studies done by the medical community in the USA or China that have proven Ganoderma’s health benefits.
Many of their distributors sell Organo Gold products from websites, and many of them make significant health related claims about the powers of Ganoderma and Organo Gold. This may be from personal experiences.
In fact, a study by the University of Pittsburgh showed that prolonged use of Ganoderma could actually cause health problems for some people…so be sure as with any such product you see what your Doctor has to say about it.
Organo Gold is not a scam for sure. If you are a newbie to all this, be sure to ask your sponsor exactly how you will need to market the business.
Those newer to the marketing world can get easily overwhelmed. You will have to do a lot of offline marketing which includes hosting parties and talking to friends.
If you have a good budget and can recruit new people offline, then this is not bad. Our good online marketing friends are affiliate of Organo gold too.
For our taste, we like simple programs which are risk free, and low cost to get started. We don’t recommend selling to friends and family unless you are a good people /sales person.
Organo Gold is a good company, you will need to know the best way to get sales.
