Monavie Review – Is Mona Vie A Scam?

by Franco on August 31, 2009

Brig Hart, the big celebrity spokesperson for Monavie reportedly earns over $5,000,000 with the Mona vie opportunity. So, is this pretty attainable for most reps? Is it legitimate? Or is it another scam to be avoided. Monavie has created plenty of mixed opinions and all from a sweet little Acai Berry drink.

With all the acai berry "debate" still raging, and the intense amount of hype enveloping the monavie company, Mon avie has almost certainly come to your attention if you’ve been looking for online business opportunities or have friends already marketing the company. There are plenty of Monavie negative complaints and accusations out there – many people are spending a lot of money trying to get their Monavie business to produce positive results, and most are not getting close.

On the other hand, there is also a significant amount of positive testimonials about Monavie as well that come from both customers and business builders alike.

This article is going to attempt to break down the story and give you the ins and outs of the monavie company and business opportunity, and give you real some real insight into the product behind the company, and what it takes to really create success. But before we get into the GOOD mona vie information, I’ll share with you a few of the monavie complaints I’ve found online…

Plenty of people like to run around and call any creative or "outside-the-box" business model a "scam" not knowing anything about business, nor having any amount of financial success under their own belt, so I rarely take that word out of my tool box. Also, please note, in the spirit of full disclosure that I am a happy consumer of the Mona vie product and I have been for over 18 months. Also note that I do NOT promote the business opportunity and would NOT market it with a 10 foot pole. But I like my Monavie juice, for sure.

In the Monavie brochures, website, DVDs and literature you can access through a distributor, many featuring their celebrity spokesperson Brig Hart (who supposedly earns over $5,000,000 per year with the monavie home based business), you can find details about the sort of Monavie success stories that we all like to see in an MLM or other direct sales opportunity. The type of story that offers MASSIVE motivation to thousands upon thousands of other people striving for the same success in their own home business.

Even on the sites that feature Mona vie complaints, including the Monavie “scam” accusations about the autobilling program, you can find real people who are achieving real success with the Monavie Home Business. Training is available both from the Mona vie corporate staff themselves, and from third-party MLM specialists who promise to make your Monavie Business journey something that can be featured in future Mona vie videos, functions and magazines.

Monavie definitely provides a stable company for your home based business building efforts, and has a product people seem to like very much and are willing to buy month after month. But when you really study the process of making your own Mona vie home based business success story, you’ll find a critical element missing from the business plan they provide you.

The Marketing of the Monavie Company or Mona vie Products Is Not The Answer…

What you will learn quickly when you begin to build your Mona vie business is that Monavie expects to be the only product you are ever focused on selling. When you start your Monavie training, you’ll be taught how to remind people about Monavie, how to position Mona vie as something they want to buy, and most of the "training" will center on how to make your Monavie the "center" of everyone’s universe.

But the reality is different. Monavie the product, and Mona vie the company is NOT the main ingredient of your success. Far from it, it can quite literally be THE cause of failing miserably in this industry. Monavie isn’t the only product you’ll want to offer to your customers IF you want to really build a strong and profitable business from home. Mona vie doesn’t like to admit this hard but very real fact, but the customers you will be attracting are your. That’s exactly right. You will be working hard to market and find YOUR customers. They aren’t just buying Mona vie products, they’re buying Monavie from YOU. And Monavie is not going to maintain your relationship with those customers… Monavie will be working hard on building THEIR OWN relationships with YOUR customers and if you don’t move and learn to control that dynamic, you may find yourself in a very frustrating situation.

There’s a saying in the direct marketing industry that people don’t buy from companies, they buy from other people. That saying is very true. And it is for because of this reason that your greatest selling point shouldn’t be Mona vie – it should be YOU and how YOU can help your customers receive what they are really looking for.

Study the art and science of the marketing system of Brig Hart and you quickly see that he is NOT only focused on promoting Mona vie. Monavie is not the only company he promotes and markets. If you really look closed at Brig Hart’s real marketing you will see that the major company he promotes and positions is BRIG HART.

This is the secret nobody wants to tell you about the home based business industry.

Your Personal Brand Is More Critical To Your Success Then Marketing Mona vie…

When you decide to marketing and promote another company’s product, promoting that particular product is NOT the most important or the only thing you must focus on. It will be far more important to learn to effectively market and promote and SELL YOU. And you should be studying and learning how to position and promote the other information, products and services that your target prospects are already looking for anyway. You should be promoting other products and services that compliment your primary product line and add to your business.

If you get involved in building a diversified portfolio of cash flow streams by marketing multiple home based business programs (and you should), they should all be well-positioned in your business portfolio, so your customers will purchase more than one of them.

Your growing downline should be encouraged to join you not only in the Monavie business, but in other direct marketing business opportunities – in effect, creating multiple downlines and multiple sources of leverage.

This is exactly what has led me to my success in the direct marketing industry. I’ve made a tremendous amount of money and built downlines numbering in the thousands, because I promote and market my own business – not just the current "flavor of the month" in the industry.

It’s not about fads and bussing media attention. It’s not about pitching and hustling only one product or one line of products at your customers. It’s not about talking to your family and friends. It’s about direct response and strategic marketing and self-promotion, and delivering real value to your customers – and your fellow distributors – the type of value that is just not delivered by anyone else.

What The Monavie Web Sites Leave Out…

In your efforts to market Mona vie, you’ve probably read every single brochure, web site and watched every video you can get your hands on, and you may have some type of Monavie training here and there. You’ve been taught the old story line and been given your "system" and you’ve been taught how promote the story and the product to ANYONE willing to listen and even those who are not so willing. I know all that emotional pressure and hype may sound good but this places you in direct competition with every other Monavie distributor because you basically become just one of a MASSIVE army of commodities, or, distributors all singing the same song. Your customers can literally join ANYONE else and get the same exact thing… why should they join with YOU? If all your customer wants is Mona vie, it’s available from thousands of people, and they all sell the same stuff. As a matter of fact, it would probably be way more effective and profitable and less costly to you if the company just posted their own blog, facebook, twitter and youtube page and ran targeted advertising and sell direct without any other reps… it would make no difference.

What you need to to achieve real and sustainable success in this industry is to build a business based on delivering the quality, information, products and services that your target market is really looking for and complimenting that with a back end distributorship to build long term wealth. Something that nobody else can duplicate exactly. Then you have no competition at all – instead of being just a face in the Monavie crowd, you are standing proud and tall on a mountaintop promoting YOU and your value and building Mona vie at the same time in a more professional and leveraged way.

The Monavie training will not even come close to teaching you this because it doesn’t matter to them that you succeed long term at all. I know it may seem like it does but the cold, hard and very real mathematics allows them a different luxury. All they care about is whether your customers buy Mona vie products. They don’t need your customers to come back to you; they just need them to buy more Monavie. This isn’t neccesarily a bad thing, it’s just what a smart network marketing company thinks they have to do. They forget it’s the DISTRIBUTOR that creates everything… and they start operating by the laws of AVERAGES. They already knew MONTHS BEFORE you even joined how many people YOU were going to bring in and that’s the set of cards they play.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Monavie Makes Billions If You Only Refer 2 – 3 People…

But if you only refer a few dozen, you won’t make a dime long term. To be successful in monavie you need more than what most average reps will bring in. You need REAL TRAINING, real coaching, and you need to take success and your business into your own hands. The most successful people in the world CHOOSE to learn the smartest business strategies, and CHOOSE to take action on a daily basis…

If you don’t refocus on learning how to be a better business OWNER and a professional marketer, mona vie product sales are not going to happen and you are not going to do much other than waste a bunch of time having social parties with a lot of nice people. And that’s why so many people in Monavie never really make any substantial profit. The main reason for this is because they have no idea how to market and advertise. They have no clue about how to really build a marketing company from scratch and they fall and stumble just like the thousands that came before them did. The solution to making money in the mlm home business industry is as simple as LEARNING the principles required to really GROW a strong, and solid sales and marketing business.

There’s nothing wrong with Monavie, and you’ll find this same story playing out all over the mlm home based business industry. Monavie is looking out for their own interest, and they’re expecting you to look out for yours on your own. This is something you have to take to heart quickly.

So begin to really focus on looking out for the best interests of YOUR OWN business and not just the company you’re deciding to promote. Look
out for your interest – market yourself, your own business, your own brand.

Promote your own products and services, not just Monavie, but everything you offer that can bring value to your target market. Create useful and valuable lines of products, and develop a unique and compelling system of marketing and promotion that brings your customers back to you… not just to the nearest Monavie rep down the street from them.

Success really is not hard once you find other mentors, training and systems that can teach you the basic fundamentals of effective marketing in this arena. In fact, it’ll blow you away how very simple this can be. You just need to know where you can go to get started learning how to market YOU and your business, where you get the most benefit, and where the sustainable chance for growth is found.

You need to really be promoting you and your own business. The fact is that at the end of the day, Monavie doesn’t care about you, or your family, or your financial well-being, aside of selling Monavie products.

In the end of the day, the only person responsible for your Monavie success is you. Monavie is not going to be sending YOU any customers or even leads. They are not going to promote ONE bottle of juice for you. The person tasked with finding customers, building relationships, and closing sales is you. Monavie is a vendor that supplies something for YOUR customers. Mona vie needs YOU far more than you need them and if you take that position and focus on building your brand, advertising correctly and building your own list and then building a relationship with your list based on delivering quality and value and service, then you can point that marketing skill at ways that will generate multiple income streams for you and yes, of course, build a strong business in Monavie as well. But you must learn to differentiate yourself first. How do you stand out from the crowd? Where can you go to learn the effective marketing skills needed to succeed that you already know are not taught in Monavie?

Nobody is in this business to make someone else successful. It’s a side effect. You can’t rely on someone else to make you successful, either; their only interest in your success is to share what they can of it. So long as they have enough success, your failure doesn’t matter to them. And when your customers only want Mona vie, without any concern for where they get it, your failure wouldn’t impact Monavie at all. They take your customers and database and keep rolling on. They still make billions.
Be sure to place your focus on what will deliver more benefit to you and your business – your own business and marketing coaching and systems. Instead of putting your time and energy into promoting Monavie and their products, promote your own business, and the things that make it special. It will make you happier, in the long run, because that effort will build a company and a customer base that you can maintain for years to come… You see, it’s not really the "Monavie" success story you’re chasing… it’s YOUR success story and you can write that any way you wish with the right coaching, systems, and mindset.
