Valentus Review from Non Affiliate – Legit or Scam?

valentus reviewRecently I noticed an uprising of a fairly new MLM company (from past 2 years) called Valentus.

The company was actually being pitched on social media (the classic way of getting people interested).

So, I have gone out and done some digging and I now have my findings for you in my Valentus Review to help you figure out if this is for you or not.

However, I am NOT promoting this company as an affiliate – just to make that clear.

You can also see my video review of Valentus below as well.

So Then, What Is Valentus About?

Launched at the end of 2014, Valentus was founded by CEO Dave Jordan.

In Latin, the word “Valentus” menas “prevail,” defined as proving to be superior in strength, power and influence.”

The Valentus website lists a “product return” address in Nevada, United States, although I am not certain if this is where Valentus operates.

If you plug the address into the Google search engine, United Fulfillment Solutions comes up. United Fulfillment Solutions claims they are a pick pack order processor, inventory manager, return processor, assembly partner, data processor (and) multiple facility.”

Valentus does not list a corporate address on their website.

I first noticed Dave Jordan’s name when he came up as a LiveSmart affiliate back in 2011. The circumstances under which Dave Jordan left LiveSmart 360 are unclear, but I assume it was before Valentus launched. LiveSmart 360 very recently imploded itself.

What Are The Valentus Products Being Sold?

Valentus markets a line of “functional beverages;”

“With the Prevail line of functional beverages, people all over the world are experiencing a new kind of health and vitality.

Formulated with purest natural ingredients from some of the most pristine locations on the planet, we pride ourselves not only on creating product that gets results, but on creating products that are good for your body.”

Some of the products included on the Valentus site are Prevail SlimRoast, Prevail Energy, Prevail Trim, and Prevail Immune Boost, however no retail pricing is not disclosed on the website. You can click to add products to cart, however it asks for a “referring member” code.

Info On The Compensation Plan

The main focus of the Compensation Plan is to have affiliates sign up with autoship, and sign up more affiliates who do the same.

Commission Qualification

In order to qualify for commissions at the Silver affiliate level, they must generate 50 “Personal Volume” per month. An affiliates PV includes both retail sales and personal purchases.

Within the compensation plan, 50 PV is earned with the purchase of a $59 “box,” although the contents of the box are not specified.

Retail Commissions

A 25% retail commission is paid on the sale of products to retail customers.

Recruitment Commissions

Valentus utilizes a binary compensation structure for retail commissions.

Binary compensation structures place you, the affiliate, at the top of the team, which is split into two sides, left and right.

valentus compensation plan

New affiliates are placed directly under you on the second level until it is full. The next level is generated by splitting the previous level into 4 positions. As the team grows and each level gets filled, a new level is generated underneath.

At the end of each week, the sales volume of both binary sides is determined, with affiliates paid for each 200 BV on the strongest side, and 100 BV on the weakest side.

Matching Bonus

A matching bonus may be earned on an affiliate’s downline. The percentage paid and the amount of recruitment levels matched is dependent on the Valentus affiliate’s rank.

Other Bonuses

Valentus also offers a Legacy Enrollment Bonus, Enrollment Pool Bonus and a Car Bonus.

How Much To Join Valentus?

A basic membership with Valentus is $59. A starter, which buys a gold rank for two months is $129. An advanced pack can also be purchased, which buys a platinum rank for two months and costs $199. A business builder pack is $499 and buys a Ruby rank with a 100 PV per month autoship.

Any Truth To Those Valentus Scam Rumours?

Looking at various things around there, you always get people calling network marketing companies scams or pyramid schemes.

So yes, I am sure there will be people who do that here. Of course, some (who don’t agree with the business model) will claim that there is a Valentus Scam going on.

So, what’s the truth?

Well, it is my firm opinion that there is no Valentus Scam taking place at all.

That is absolutely the wrong word.

Valentus is a completely legit opportunity and not a scam or pyramid scheme.

Yes, the mlm opportunity may have a few flaws (which you can read in my conclusion) but that does not make it a scam.

Also, what is pleasing is that there are “proper products” actually available. Just like Jeunesse Global (reviewed here), there are proper products.

Believe it or not, but there are a lot of opportunities don’t have this.

Having said all that, there is a problem with retail focus as explained below.

Here’s My Valentus Review Conclusion

There is a real lack of retail focus, which is only proven by the lack of retail pricing on the website.

While there is an online storefront, basic product information including pricing is missing.

Looking at the compensation plan only confirms autoship recruitment is the number one earner.

Autoship is required for most of the affiliate rants, with very clear incentives for recruitment.

A good MLM opportunity should reward affiliates based off of their personal sales performance, where Valentus demands autoship from affiliates.

Sure, there is some retail, but with the incentives for purchasing the Business Builder and recruiting more affiliate, why would anyone bother?

I would use extreme caution with this one.

Because of the flaws, of course, I encourage caution.

As well as that, if you go and promote Valentus or any other MLM opportunity, make sure you know how to:

– Generate Traffic And Leads
– Convert those leads

So, that’s it for my Valentus Review and hope you have found it useful.

The company is legit and not a scam or pyramid scheme.

However, it has a few flaws to be aware of.

And not all the reviews of Valentus will report this!

Also, if you promote Valentus or any other opportunity, do learn how to market!
