A 3rd Party Review Of The LifeVantage Opportunity & Protandim

The LifeVantage Business Opportunity Review

If your reading this third-party review, you’re probably looking for some more information about the company called LifeVantage.

This article will give you critical insight from someone who did not join the LifeVantage business opportunity but has been in the network marketing industry for most of his life.

The most important things to consider when choosing a business opportunity are the companies’ leadership and strength, the products, the compensation plan and the overall viability and marketability. These are the things we will discuss in this LifeVantage review.

About LifeVantage Corp.

The company was founded in 2003 and is publicly traded on the NYSE. David Brown is their CEO and has over 20 years experience as a corporate lawyer and President and CEO in the nutritional industry.  Life Vantage uses a network marketing or sometimes refered to as a relationship marketing business model to market their products.

The company is dedicated to helping people reach their wellness goals through science-based solutions to oxidative stress. Their products are backed by facts and proven by science to slow down the natural occurence of aging.

Their corporate  leadership is experienced and solid which is an important factor when looking at a business opportunity. Most network marketing companies never make it past two years so LifeVantage has proven itself to be financially strong even in this down economy.

Protandim and TrueScience

When it comes to the products, LifeVantage is all about looking and feeling young. Their product lineup consists of two anti-aging solutions which are scientifically proven to reduce oxidative stress by an average of 40%.

Protandim is an anti-aging supplement that you take which works on a molecular level to prevent and slow down the aging process. Protandim triggers the creation of enzymes which can eliminate over 1 million free radical molecules per second.

TrueScience is an anti-aging cream to be used in conjunction with the Protandim supplements. The cream will help reduce wrinkles and even skin-tone along with making your skin more vibrant and smooth.

The scientific research and facts behind these two products is amazing and more details can be found on the LifeVantage.com website.

Financial Opportunity

The Life Vantage compensation plan is extremely generous to its distributors. Its filled with Fast Start Bonuses and long-term residual income on personal and team sales volume.

You are rewarded for building a team of distributors by earning monthly residual override commissions on the sales of your entire organization.  The larger your team grows the larger your monthly check will grow.

When you first join LifeVantage you are considered a distributor but can work your way up through the ranks from Pro 1 Distributor all the way to Pro 10 Distributor. Each promotion will increase your pay potential and your income will continually climb.

There is also an elite bonus pool that takes 4% of the companies sales profits and distributes them out to Pro 7-10 Distributors.

Bottom line, there is a lot of money on the table for anyone who wants to put in the work and effort in building a LifeVantage business.

Conclusion

By now you should feel confident that the business opportunity with LifeVantage is real and definitely not a scam. With that said, anyone looking to join Life Vantage should consider what it takes to become successful once you join.

Sadly, most people who join never reap the benefits or achieve the goals they set out to carry out. This is because they lack the proper marketing and recruiting skills required in this industry.

Most people in network marketing join a business and then 3-5 months later they give up after all their friends and family turn them down.  This is why 97% of network marketers never make it BIG in our industry.

The successful 21st century network marketers have learned to adapt by using cutting-edge technologies and taking their business online. My suggestion would be to find a self-branding attraction marketing system to plug-in to and market yourself as a leader. When done correctly, you will be well on your way to the top of the leader board with any company you get involved with.

Read This – 4 Concepts, That When Mastered, Will Totally Change Your Business Forever

This article will shed light on 4 elementary concepts that you must know before earning a significant income with your online business. These 4 concepts have been around for several years but only a select few of online marketers have mastered them until recent.

So you’re probably wondering what are these 4 concepts and how can I implement them into my marketing efforts online. As you read this article you will begin to see just how important these concepts are and even more so when used in combination. You may have already mastered 1 or 2 of these but until you combine these concepts into one focused marketing campaign you will not experience results like the elite in our industry.

Marketing That Works:

One thing all business models require is marketing. Traditional business models use traditional marketing mediums like radio ads, T.V. ads, billboards, flyers and store fronts. Business owners know that without a quality advertising campaign their business is doomed from the start. Advertising attracts new customers which is the most critical thing about any business.

But what if I don’t have a traditional business or a storefront? I’m glad you asked! Fortune 500 companies are finally starting to understand how powerful the internet really is. Almost every day I see a new banner ad or facebook fan page of a large corporation who has made the switch to the internet. The question is if they are doing it why not you? It’s a valid question that needs to be addressed.

There are numerous opportunities with online advertising. You are able to customize your campaign in just about every way. It just makes more sense to use the internet than an expensive radio ad or billboard. Let’s take a look at some types of online advertising that is available.

Free Marketing

Social Networking – Facebook, MySpace and Twitter are the big 3. Create accounts at each of these sites. Find discussions and how-to videos if you need help setting up accounts or basic information on how to use these services. The point is, make yourself available so people can connect with you online via these social networking sites.

Video Marketing – YouTube, Viddler and DailyMotion are the most popular video hosting sites online today. The main goal here is to attract people by “showing” them what they want and in return they may visit your website after watching the video. There are many great tools available to create and edit quality marketing videos. My recommendation is camtasia.com but a free alternative is videospin.com

Blogging – Setting up a blog can be fun and simple. Don’t waste your time on perfecting your blog when you’re first starting out. Spend about 25 min a day on it and after 3-6 months you will have a great looking, content rich blog that will get tons of daily traffic. Think of your blog as a ‘Mother Ship’. Its where all of your content online (articles, videos, social media postings etc.) will point people to. It’s a place where people can come get more information about you and your business. Also, having a blog in place sets you up as a leader and a professional in the eyes of your followers.

Article Marketing – Writing articles is another form of providing content that people want. Learning how to write quality articles is something that takes time but is a skill everyone should develop if you want to be a successful entrepreneur. The most popular article directory sites are ezinearticles.com and Goarticles.com

Paid Marketing

Pay-Per-Click – This is by far my most favorite form of advertising online. Everyone has their own financial situations so this might not be the way to go initially. However, if you have just $5 a day to put towards a highly efficient PPC campaign there is no reason why you can’t generate 10-20 leads a day for your business.

Most people tell me they don’t have the money to advertise online. Do what I did and sacrifice spending $10 on lunch and learn how to eat for just $5. That simple change in my lifestyle has generated hundreds of leads a month and income for my business. The real question to ask yourself is what is more important, an enchilada dinner and iced tea for $9.99 or building your business? Learn to eat on a budget and watch your income grow!

Also, people tell me they would rather start off doing the FREE marketing strategies instead of the paid methods. I’m all for FREE strategies but what most people don’t realize is that it takes several months if not years to start seeing real results from these types of marketing. Think about it. If you wrote one article a day for 30 days you would have 30 articles online at the end of the month. The average article from my experience gets about 100 views a month. So that would mean that after one month you would be generating about 3,000 views or impressions from your articles. If you know much about PPC or article marketing click-through-rates you know that you won’t be generating a ton of traffic at this point. If you’re lucky you will have a 3% CTR which would result in about 90 clicks to your blog or website that you are promoting. Stay with me here. Now think about how much time and research you spent on writing these articles. Not to mention the headache and learning curve you had to go through just to get them uploaded to an online directory. What if I could tell you that for just $9 you could generate the same amount of “clicks” without spending a fraction of your time or energy? Plus, these “clicks” would be of higher quality due to targeting capabilities within your PPC campaigns. Now for someone starting out, what seems like a more logical way to spend their resources? Hundreds of hours doing research and writing articles or 10 min creating a PPC ad and spending $9 over the course of a 30 day period? It’s a no brainer if you ask me!

I’ve personally been working with Tom at EscapeFromAmerica.com with his Facebook PPC campaigns. He started out paying about $3 for every lead that he generated but with a few minor tweaks to his targeting criteria he is now well on his way to $.30-$.50 per lead. I personally love the capabilities that come with Facebook’s advertising platform. In my opinion Facebook is like the Wild-Wild West of online marketing and the opportunities are unlimited when it comes to PPC. I highly encourage you to get with someone who has some experience in this arena and learn from them.

Funded Proposal System:

At this point you may be asking yourself, “How in the world am I going to afford all of this?” Not only will you’re online marketing efforts require your time they will require some working capital. But don’t worry, because this next concept will actually allow you to earn an income while you market online.

It’s called a “Funded Proposal System” and it works like this. Let’s say you’re promoting XYZ Company and your main objectives are to sell the products and recruit other representatives. The most common mistake network marketers have online is they pitch their products or business opportunity to anyone or anything they come in contact with. The truth of the matter is NO ONE CARES!!! How many times have you got an email or an instant message from someone wanting you to buy their miracle juice or join their amazing opportunity that has a binary, unlimited depth compensation plan? Chances are you’ve been approached online or offline by people doing just that. I’m here to tell you there is a better, more effective way to build your business.

A Funded Proposal System is simply a marketing “system” that you use as a tool to reach a more broad audience. It’s an automated lead generation and management tool that will create additional income streams for you to help fund your marketing efforts online. For example, instead of promoting your XYZ Company you would start promoting this “system” which would include training, a community of like-minded entrepreneurs and affiliate products for potential prospects to buy from you. The bottom line is not everyone is going to be interested in your products or business opportunity but chances are they may be looking to learn how to do article marketing or set up a Facebook fan page. Promoting things of value that are included in this “system” is how you capture a more broad audience. This “system” can be something you create on your own or you can join an existing “system” which is what I recommend.

Here is how it works:

Prospect “A” watches your video about “how to set up a blog in 5 min” on YouTube. At the end of the video they see a link to your blog to get an idea of what one should look like. After spending a few minutes on your site they see a banner advertisement promoting “how to generate 50+ leads per day”. This captures their attention and they click on it. They are then forwarded to your “system’s” capture page/ landing page and are pleasantly surprised with what they find. They learn about this “system” and the value it has and decide to try it out for themselves. Most “systems” charge around $30-$50 per month but often come with a FREE or $1 dollar trial offer. As people join your “system” you begin to earn residual income for sponsoring them. You will earn additional income when people buy other affiliate products and services within the system for example a website domain or email auto responder. If you don’t know what these are its okay. Just know it’s a way to make additional income! Once someone joins your “system” you will begin to build report with this person and then possibly introduce them to your primary business.

Think BIG:

This concept of thinking big is very simple. THINK BIG!!! I recently was told by a highly successful network marketer and business coach that our thoughts regulate our actions. If you think about that for a second it’s a very powerful statement. “Our thoughts regulate our actions”. What are your thoughts? Are they negative? Are they pessimistic? Instead of thinking, “How in the world am I going to sponsor 3 reps this month?” change the question to, “What can I do differently that would help me sponsor 3 reps this month?” Thinking differently will become apparent in your actions.

Your mind is the most powerful asset you have. It can be your best friend or your worst enemy. It’s up to you to decide how you will use it. Fear is a big problem with entrepreneurs and network marketers. The fear of failure or what others think of you is a real issue that we all face at some point in our lives. The good news is I have a solution for this. It’s so important I would compare it to a cure for a major disease. After all, fear is an illness. In order to cure your fears you must take immediate action. It’s not rocket science, it’s just the truth! Taking immediate action will cure any fear you have.

Try it out. Next time you’re faced with fear attack it with immediate action. Maybe you’re afraid to call someone who is a prospect of yours. Instead of waiting around thinking to yourself, “I hope it’s not too late in the day to call him/her” or “I hope they don’t think this is some ponzi scheme”, just pick up the phone and dial their number. Hesitation will kill your business and your confidence. Immediate action is the key to conquering your fears!

Lead The Way:

We have all heard speeches about being a good leader. I’m not here to tell you anything you’ve already heard from a parent or school teacher. I’m going to share with you something that you can apply to your online marketing efforts and your business.

This is so simple you won’t even believe me until you try it yourself! Below are 3 characteristics that I believe one must possess in order to become a strong leader in this industry:

1) Be Professional – Make sure you are presenting yourself as a professional on all of your publicized content online. Having a professional looking blog, Facebook page, twitter page and videos says a lot. People read into this and see you as a leader when your content is professional.

2) Give Value – Create an environment of value. People should want to become your friend and connect with you because of the value you give them. You can do this in many ways. Providing FREE content like how-to videos or articles is great. Also, write your own eBook or 5 day marketing boot camp to give away. These are all great ways to be of value to your followers.

3) Be Helpful – Someone told me that there are 2 types of people in this world. People with problems and people with solutions. If you see someone in need and you know how to help them don’t miss the opportunity to do so. It will pay off in the long run and it will help establish you as a leader in this industry.

I want to thank you so much for reading this article and I truly hope you will begin to develop and eventually master these 4 concepts. If done correctly, you and your business will never be the same!

How to Generate 20+ Home Based Business Leads Every Day Online For Free

Learning how to generate home based business leads is the most important thing you must know in order to be a successful internet or network marketer. Without fresh leads coming in on a daily basis your business will not go anywhere and you will soon become a member of the “97% club”.Traditionally, when you join a home based business or MLM you are asked to make a list of all of your friends and family who you think might be interested in your product(s) or opportunity. This is the first mistake of most network marketers.

Writing down all of your personal contacts is not only bad business its bad on a relationship level. Most of the time you will harm your relationship with a friend or family member by trying to sell them something they don’t want or pitching them on your opportunity.

If you are reading this article you may already know what I’m talking about. Most people have learned, if they have done other home based businesses, that making a list is like pulling teeth.

By now, you know that making a list is out of the question. Successful network marketers and home based business owners have learned not to do this. So what do they do and what do they recommend?

I’m glad you asked! I’m about to share a little known secret with you that will help you explode your business and put you at the top of the leader boards within your own company.

Generating home based business leads can be done for free online. Let me pause and say that generating leads is an “art”. The guys who are generating 100+ leads a day started by generating 1 lead a day. And then 2 leads. And then 3 and so on.

The more you learn and develop as a lead generation expert the more leads you will bring in on a daily basis.

So how do you generate 20+ home based business leads every day online for free? You start by educating yourself. Learning and duplicating what the experts do is vital for you as someone who is just getting started.

Lead generation is not easy and most people do it incorrectly. Learning the right way to do lead generation will put you way ahead of the learning curve and save you countless hours and headaches along the way.

I am about to give you a very simple formula that I use on a daily basis to generate 20+ leads per day online for free.

(CT + SN) x EM = LGP

Are you scratching your head yet to figure this formula out? Let me explain.

CT stands for “Content”. Generating leads is done by the law of attraction. The way you attract others is done by placing content online that will be available to view when someone is looking for it. Content can be in the form of a blog, article, press release or video. I recommend all of the above.

Generating leads starts by building content and blasting it all across the internet. This will create a “web” to capture your leads that you attract. Simply put, creating content is just a way to give people what they are looking for.

For example: if you wrote a blog titled, “ABC Network Marketing Company Review” people who are doing research on this company would read your blog. Most often, people who visit your blog will see you as a leader and want to know more about you. This brings us to the next part of the equation.

If you want 20+ home based business leads a day chasing you down then you must make yourself available on the “Social Networks”. When someone visits your blog or watches a video you made you must give them the option to meet you and learn more about you. This can be done by creating accounts with a few of the social networking sites out there.

Most of you already do this but maybe you go about it the wrong way. First of all, social networking takes up a lot of time. I know people who spend half of their day posting tweets on Twitter and looking what friends did last week on Facebook.

Getting distracted costs network marketers millions of dollars a year so be careful!

People who want to know more about you will come find you so first create accounts with Facebook, Twitter and MySpace. Actively communicating on these three networks will make yourself available to most of your leads. If someone doesn’t have a Facebook account maybe they have a MySpace or Twitter account. You get the idea. The point is to make yourself available to anyone who wants to find you.

Okay, so far we have created content and made ourselves available on the social networking sites. So how do we create leads from this? A lead is not a lead until they give you their information. This is done by an opt-in or lead capture page. Setting up these simple websites to obtain someone’s contact information is how a lead is generated. I call this “Email Marketing”.

You must be able to communicate effectively with a lead. The best way to do this is through email marketing. Anyone who is success in this industry will tell you that building a list is the foundation of their business. Without a list of contacts to market to you are not going anywhere.

Being able to send out an email to your list is priceless. It’s how all of the top income earners got to where they are so it only makes sense for someone who is just getting started to do the same thing.

(Content + Social Networking) x Email Marketing = “Leads, Growth and Profits!”

This simple formula is how you can generate 20+ home based business leads a day online for free.
