If you’re looking for a network marketing company to join and you’re into nutritional products, then you’ve probably taken a look at Kyani. In this expert review, I will go into information about Kyani, the products they market, the compensation plan that is available to their distributors, and most importantly, whether or not this is yet another pyramid scam.
Kyani is involved in the health and wellness industry. As a person looking for a business opportunity, it is important to note that the health and wellness industry is predicted to be the next $1 billion industry. Now while this fact alone will not guarantee that she will be successful, it is safe to know that she will be participating in a fast growing and exploding industry. One of the main reasons the health industry is growing so fast is because Baby Boomers are reaching their 60s and looking for health-related products to help them feel and look younger. This Baby Boomer section of the population is where Kyani focuses her marketing.
Kyani was founded in 2005 and is based in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Kyani’s co-founders are made up of three very successful Idaho families (the Powells, the Hansens, and the Taylors). It is rumored that these three families were able to fund Kyani with their own cash, to the tune of $300 million. With that kind of support, it’s easy to see how Kyani has been able to grow so quickly. On top of that, CEO Michael Breshears, who runs the company, has a wealth of business experience, is active in the Direct Selling Association (DSA), and has led other companies to $200 million. It’s also important to note that the founders, along with Breshears, really do have a long-term vision for the company, which is to build Kyani into a multi-million dollar behemoth in the network marketing industry.
Kyani is currently a private company with operations in North America, Europe and Asia. While the company was originally founded in 2005, it wasn’t until 2008 that the company began to gain momentum, in large part because it changed its focus and began proactively pursuing experienced network marketers for onboarding. In my opinion, it was a very smart move for them, and the growth in revenue is also proof that they made a good decision in doing so.
Unlike other nutritional network marketing companies that offer hundreds of products, Kyani offers three nutritional products in their product line. These three products are:
1. Kyani Sunrise: A vitamin-rich nutritious drink made from Alaskan blueberries, which are very strong antioxidants.
2. Kyani Sunset: An omega-3 supplement made from wild Alaskan sockeye salmon.
3. Nitro FX – A noni-based nitric oxide product that is said to defend and repair every cell in the body, aid in blood flow, and increase overall energy.
While there are plenty of people who swear by these products, it’s important to do your due diligence on them and read some of the research on the products. That said, the Kyani Medical Advisory Board includes three highly distinguished physicians who have extensive knowledge about the power of nitix oxide, the antioxidant potency of Alaskan cranberries, and tocotrienols, one of the key components of Kyani Sunset.
The Compensation Plan
You can get started in Kyani in three different ways, with registration fees ranging from $160 to $1,250. Along with your upfront cost, there is also a monthly administrative fee and a monthly autoship requirement of approximately $150.
The main theme of Kyani’s compensation plan is the ability to generate long-term residual income through distributor autoship. But there are also several other ways you can get paid, including: check matching, fast start bonuses, sponsor bonuses, leadership funds, car program, and incentive trips.
Most of Kyani’s growth came from distributors holding in-home presentations and a few weekly hotel meetings in select markets across the country. There isn’t much of a platform that does much information on internet marketing, so as long as you’re okay with contacting your friends and family, or putting together your own capture pages, you should be okay with their model.
As far as support goes, they do a lot of conference calls and national conventions several times a year. The only downside is that Kyani is such a young company that it may not have much live local support. And while opening a new city may sound appealing, you won’t have the benefit of having weekly meetups or local leaders helping you deliver live presentations.
Is Kyani a scam?
One thing is for sure, Kyani is definitely not a scam. It is a growing company that has a lot of funds and has a good management team at the helm of the company. It also has good products with a solid compensation plan. If you are looking for a network marketing company that markets nutritional products, then Kyani may be just what you are looking for.
However, simply joining a company like Kyani will not guarantee success. Unless you can brand your own brand and generate leads, you’ll be dead in the water and likely end up with a garage full of products without much to show for it. My advice is to use a marketing system that can accomplish both of these things at the same time. If you can do this, you can fast-track your way to building a very profitable Kyani business.
