My Elite Marketing Alliance Review but Not Promoting It!

elite marketing alliance reviewThere is a business opportunity that was pitched to me recently.

On first glance, it looks like its new, but as I will reveal later in my review, it’s actually a spinoff of something else.

Anyway, I am not endorsing or promoting this opportunity but hopefully my Elite Marketing Alliance Review will help you understand it better.

I will be talking about the products, comp plan and more.

I’ve also made a video as well which you can watch below:

What The Heck Is Elite Marketing Alliance?

Launched in 2010, Elite Marketing Alliance is part of the health and wellness MLM niche.

Listed as president of the company is Robert (Bob) Yukes.

“Bob Yukes is a multi-level marketing veteran having worked eight years as a CFO in the industry prior to joining EMA.

As CFO at his previous endeavour, he was instrumental in raising $1 million dollars of additional financing to aid their expansion into international markets.”

Elite Marketing Alliance is listed on the Joy To Live website as the parent company. Joy To Live is well-known for heavy affiliate recruitment over retail sales. Joy to live was launched in 2010 as well, and is run by Founder and CEO Gerald Ricks. My best guess is that Ricks is also the owner of Elite Marketing Alliance.

Ricks also launched Magic 10 Marketing last year, which markets bottles of silver and is widely seen as a recruitment scheme.

Although Yukes’ bio states that he has been in the MLM industry for 8 years, I personally was not able to find any information as to where he worked prior to EMA and Joy To Live.

Is There An Elite Marketing Scam Going On?

From studies I’ve done on the internet, there are people suggesting that there is some kind of Elite Marketing Alliance scam going on.

But is there any truth to this?

Is Elite Marketing Alliance a scam or a completely valid business opportunity?

In all honesty, it is actually legit.

However, just because it’s not a scam does not mean I recommend it.

There are some pretty big flaws.

See the next section for some of those.

Here’s My Elite Marketing Alliance Review Conclusion!

The whole Elite Marketing Alliance opportunity is really just a half-baked spin-off of Joy To Live.

First, a lot of the links on the site don’t even work, and there isn’t a very wide variety of products.

The one advantage of Elite Marketing Alliance over Joy To Live is the stronger focus on retail sales.

However, the enrolment packs are straight-up chain recruitment, and the fact they encourage auto-ship because failure to maintain an auto shipment could result in a loss of your potential commissions,” easily makes this a pyramid scheme.

Add into this the pay to play element, it gets even more sketchy.

This opportunity will have you chasing constant recruitment and give you an uphill battle with huge attrition. I’d think twice about this one and instead go for something like Internet Funnel System (which I wrote about recently). Internet Funnel System is far more sustainable than this as it’s not just “pay to play”!

I don’t recommend it as part of my Elite Marketing Alliance Review conclusion!

However, whatever you promote (whether it’s this business or something else), your success is dependent on you learning how to market.
