NuSkin: The History

NuSkin is one of the world’s largest network marketing or multilevel marketing (MLM) firms. It is a direct selling company with three divisions: Big Planet, NuSkin and Pharmanex. It was founded in 1984 in Provo, Utah and has just celebrated its 25th anniversary. In 48 international markets, individuals buy NuSkin products for their own use, sell them at retail prices, and recruit others to also become distributors. Their mission is to act as a force for good throughout the world.

The Products

So what kind of products does NuSkin Enterprises Inc. have to sell? And are they worth the cost you pay for them? And are they products you can be passionate about selling?

Their major products are divided into 5 major categories:

1. Anti-Aging- synonymous with the name NuSkin. It was researched and created by some of the best scientist in the world,
2. NuSkin- a leader in the skin care industry with scientifically advanced ingredient technologies and skin beneficial formulas,
3. Pharmanex- offers a complete approach to anti-aging, with nutritional supplements formulated to nourish and protect the body in its aging process.,

5. Business Tools- helping to maximize the distributors business potential.

The Business

The membership fee is only $35 and you pay a $20 renewal fee every year to remain a distributor. Once you are a part of the company, you earn commissions off of the products you sell and also the products sold by people you recruit into the business. If you sell enough products, there are some large commissions to be earned.

The Compensation

NuSkin has one of the most generous compensation plans in the industry. It works for the part-timer looking to supplement their regular income and also for the full-timer using NuSkin as their primary source of income. The cost to get into the business is minimal and there are no overhead costs and you do not need to hassle with inventory.

As a distributor, you can earn up to 43% retail profits when you sell the products at the suggested price. So the more customers you get for the company, the more profits you can make. In addition when you recruit other distributors to your team, you earn up to 6% of commissions on the sales on your level 1 distributors and 7% commissions on the sales of your level 2 distributors.

As you grow to the level of Executive and Leader, you get more bonuses for your hard work in developing the team and earn commissions on the group volume. Overall, Nu Skin provides a rock solid MLM opportunity if you are willing to do the hard work and if you have many friends and contacts.

Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down

NuSkin has it areas of concern. It appears as though they tie the hands of their affiliates by not allowing them to use the company name in public advertisements. Affiliates will become frustrated after they have exhausted their ‘Who do I know’ list, without other effective marketing strategies.

There is also the concern of affiliates meeting the company quotas. If an affiliate does not have initial success, they will be spending their hard earned money on very expensive products for themselves and any relative or friend that would be willing to try them.

This is a great company, with terrific products, produced by some of the top scientists in the world. The leadership of this company, values helping the poor and the hungry which is reflected in their ‘Nourish the Children’ program.

There is great money to be made in this company, but it requires recruiting a significant downline and a downline that will stay committed to working the business.

I give NuSkin Enterprises Inc. a Thumbs Up for its leadership, products, compensation plan and their benevolent service to the poor. I give it a Thumbs down for the difficulty obtaining significant income and the limited training they provide for their affiliates to make significant income. There is tremendous opportunity for NuSkin affiliates to make the kind of money that the 1% to 3% of the company are making. One of the most critical elements to success will be the training and support you receive to make a significant income.
