Kyani Review


Many of you are probably wondering just how legitimate Kyani is as an online opportunity. Given its recent jump in popularity, Kyani has become one of the more popular MLM companies. But getting started isn’t cheap and it can be difficult knowing whether this is the right opportunity for you or not.

To get a better understanding of how it works, it’s important we take a better look at its product line and compensation plan. When starting any new online opportunity, I don’t think anything beats believing in a company you’re trying to sell. Whether its through referring individuals into the company itself or selling the actual products, we should have a better understanding of how this all works and the chances of success.

If you’ve been in an MLM before, then you probably know it’s not so easy and that a lot of times the compensation plan can look more attractive as a result. Getting results is really what counts, but when it comes down to it, many just can’t find the means to get their businesses going.

Kyani Review 2014

Kyani Review 2014

In this review we’ll be reviewing Kyani, mainly with what it has to offer in its product line, and potential of Kyani as a home-based business opportunity. Lastly lets wrap this review up with a final overview of whether or not Kyani is a scam or legitimate product line and opportunity.

 

What’s Kyani?


 

Started in 2005, Kyani offers a fairly legitimate product line, based mainly on health supplements, food, and drink. There are four main products in their line that makes up the business and are all branded by Kyani. When you join the Kyani opportunity, what you’re going to find is that the price for each product differs. There is a distributor price, consumer price, and a retail price for each product, as follows.

#1. Kyani Sunsetkyani review

       Distributor – $35.95

       Preferred Customer – $39.95

       Retail – $43.95

#2. Kyani Sunrise

       Distributor – $35.95

       Preferred Customer – $39.95

       Distributor – $59.95

       Preferred Customer – $62.95

       Retail – $65.95

#4. Kyani Nitro Xtreme

       Distributor – $69.95

       Preferred Customer – $74.95

       Retail – $79.95

Kyani – An MLM Home-Based Business Opportunity


Now before we get into the compensation plan of how this all works, I’d like to put something into perspective. Take note that first of all these products are not sold in any market, but merely by individuals within the opportunity. So I’m not sure if you noticed but if you take a look the product markup from distributor to retail is very small. The margin is only between $5 and $10 meaning the room to make money here isn’t all that large.

Really, what you’re doing here is your buying a product to resell at a higher markup price. Personally, I’m not a big fan of these prices and selling physical products from home isn’t really my thing. But maybe you’re into it. If that’s the case, you’ll want to also make sure to recruit others into Kyani.. I know, easier said than done.

However, that is really where most of your success will come from. The way most MLM’s like Kyani work is you try and hit two birds with one stone. First, you find your consumers, show them the products, and try and sell them. Once they are interested, you can then present them with Kyani as their own home-based opportunity. That is where your success will come from and to be honest, not many people are able to successfully pull this off.

If you’ve been looking into Kyani its never become more important to grab ahold of the potential that lies within this opportunity. By working for Kyani, you will be what’s called an Independent Business Owner/Distributor. This has become the “title” of choice lately for many similar opportunities that tend to offer both an MLM and usually “health-based” opportunity.

 

How To Get Started With Kyani’s Business Opportunity


Not everyone can just get started with Kyani. You know that phrase… “It takes money, to make money.” Well that applies in this situation. To get started with Kyani you’ll need to purchase a starter kit. However, I don’t recommend doing this until you have a mentor/coach and plan in place. No reason to waste your money on an opportunity you’re unsure of. I was there once. I remember joining my first MLM and it was like everything hit me at once. I had a huge box of products sitting there that I just had no idea what to do with.

I wouldn’t like for that to happen to you. I eventually realized it was nothing more than a numbers game for the company. They were just trying to get their starter kits out there and were using people like myself to sell off a product here and there for them. Don’t get me wrong. Success can be made here. It just wasn’t for me.

As I mentioned, to get started you’re going to first need your starter kit.

It is not only essential, but required for you to pay money up-front. You’ll likely be signing up to receive it on a monthly basis, where they’ll automatically ship you the products and bill your card. Just like many other similarly present MLM health-product based opportunities, I told you that Kyani up-front payment isn’t cheap.

Just like any other direct sales company or opportunity, Kyani requires you to use these products to introduce to consumers you feel may be interested in purchasing.

 

How Much Are Kyani Starter Kits?


Kyani Product Review

Starter packs range anywhere from $299 to $999. Kyani additionally gives its Independent Business Owners a higher percentage of commission, for every higher priced starter kit that is purchased.

 

 

What I Like About Kyani:


 

 

  • Multiple ways of getting paid.
  • Seems trustworthy enough.
  • Not too many products, just enough.
  • Health-related and trying to make a better difference in the world.
  • Good opportunity for those with MLM experience

 

What I Don’t Like About Kyani:


  • Not enough training.
  • Expensive to get started.
  • Low retailer markup and high distribution price.
  • Need many active Kyani members below you to be successful.
  • Lacks necessary mentoring and coaching.

There’s not a whole lot of bad I can say about Kyani. The con’s that you see right above are actually something that can be witnessed in the majority of MLM opportunities today and are why many are being blamed on and categorized as nothing more than a ponzi scheme. In my opinion, anyone can make the best of an opportunity with the right strategy in place. But without getting this right, it can be impossible just to get going.

On the other hand, many of those who are most successful with Kyani will go at it differently. Usually they will forgo selling the products all together and just focus on referring others and helping them become more successful. This isn’t easy however. In order for you to be able to constantly recruit people everyday, you need to have an actual business. You need to have traffic where people can learn more about you or contacts than you can consistently call. Take note here, that Kyani is very alike a direct selling opportunity. Maybe the only and biggest difference here is the opportunity within the compensation plan is much larger.

Kyani Overview – Is This The Right Opportunity?


Nevertheless, I’d like to wrap up this Kyani review as I’m guessing you’ve heard enough from me! Do you think Kyani is right for you? Only you can answer that and my suggestion is going with your gut. I know personally after trying it, MLM wasn’t for me, despite the attractive compensation. To get that far, I knew I’d need at least five years just to find the right people and the right number of people into my downline. You have to also realize, many people you recruit aren’t going to last very long, which is you need a solid team.

Anyway, if you feel dissuaded joining into this MLM opportunity, I don’t blame you. They’re all the same way and just because they have an attractive compensation plan doesn’t make the job itself any easier. That’s why I made a switch to affiliate marketing. The reason why.. It’s easier, and profitable, when done right. It was also a much more realistic solution for me as I didn’t have to deal with all the hassle of calling people on the phone all day or struggle getting traffic to my business. In-fact I was able to learn how to sell off any product from Amazon on my own computer without doing any of the actual selling. I’ll leave you with that for now. If you’re interested in knowing more on where I learned these awesome life-time skills, take a look at this more positive review.

Maybe you’ll like it :)

Thanks for reading, and have a great and awesome day!

    Kyani in Adelaide has organized crime figures working in the MLM.
    Check out Sean O’Dalaigh now going by the name John Daly. He is in Kyani but was previously the registered director of AIC International and before that LTC Services both recognized scams run and organised by the Irish Boys from the Gold Coast.

    O’Dalaigh also worked with the well known Lee Lake the Managing Director of scam company called cleaner energy, which is another 100% scam run by the Irish Boys – check these guys out – they are both organised crime figures now heavily involved in Kyani.
    SCAM – 100%

    Good day. Thank you for that thorough review. I am also an independent distributor for Kyani and am appreciative of your likes and dislikes of the business. For me, the likes far outweigh the dislikes espcially when it comes to Kyani being a company that is trying to make a difference in the world.

    As noted in one of the other comments, there is now very good leadership and mentoring. I am proud to say that I have a very skilled team of uplines who focus a lot on teaching about the business and the products. I am certain that being in business for yourself comes with its own set of challenges that are not unique to Kyani or even MLMs. I am also certain that once motivated with your WHY you can overcome any and all challenges and at the very least keep them in perspective.

    As a dance and fitness professional, seeing my students with healthy and fortified bodies, sharp minds, and ample resources to do the things they enjoy…to include but not limited to supporting the arts and caring for their bodies…are of utmost importance to me and make up some of my WHYs. I am also very much motivated to take better care of myself, my household (children and elders), and my finances and Kyani allows me to do that in one fell swoop through a trustworthy company that cares.

    On thr note of trust, I trust that your readers will be open to looking deeper into all businesses before supporting them including fast food restaurants, clothing companies, gold and diamond sellers, owners of mineral mines, producers of technology, car makers, etc.and will make educated decisions about the use of all of their dollars and not just spending time scrutinizing MLMs.

    Is Kyani a scam or not? Yes, it pretty much is. This company is a pyramid scheme and sells customers products that are either wasteful and/or unhealthy. To start with how this company is a pyramid scheme is someone recruits you, that person tells you what you need to buy and how to make money, and you recruit a few more people, tell them the same thing, and on. The products are healthy, but wasteful to anyone who uses them. The labels on the back state that this product has between 100%-1000% of the daily recommended vitamins needed. Your body can only intake and digest a certain amount of vitamins. The rest goes into waste and/or can make you sick. Now someone might say if you drink a few glasses of orange juice or eat oranges than you’re intaking more than your recommended vitamins. Now I can say is if the vitamins I’m digesting is already going to waste after my body digested the amount of vitamins it can then I’m better off wasting money on a few oranges or a pint of orange juice than spend $40 to $60 on Kyani products.
    A person won’t make that much money on this and if they want to use Kyani products, it won’t help them or anyone.
    Don’t get talked into Kyani because it’s not worth it

    I have been signed up as the distributor on Kyani, because I had a wonderful experience treating my acne using the 7day trial pack. Before I have been used Usana, and Nuskin, and was a distributor for both company, and spending thousands, and neither worked. Right now, I have a amazing team that my senior business partners not only helping me build my team by training me, provide me 24-7 support, but also signed one up for me. If you want the product, you can contract me. Since the product is not cheap, I would highly recommend you to try as the distributor, and the money you make would definitely help you cover your expense on using Kyani. And I would love to introduce you how the commission and bonus system work, and help you make money. Of course, our team would love to sign up new member under your name, because the volume the new member signed up, is going into 100% into your account, but also every account on top of you, including me. That’s the amazing thing in Kyani, that make us as a team. —Anna, annabelle-chang@hotmail.com

    Hey Peter. How have you been?
    I’ve been looking into signing up with Kyani as it has only recently been launched in Australia and it has a high success rate. Kyäni members don’t just rely on their down line to become successful. We all grown and support each other. The people above us can give new members to the people beneath them. They help their team become successful and go up in rank.
    Do you think this would be worth it?
    I appreciate your honesty and this review. :)

    Hi Peter,
    My daughter has been introduced to Kyani by her step mother, and I have concerns they are entering her into a scam purely for points for themselves . What I am worried about as her primary guardian is she is only 15 years only and very impressionable. Is it even legal to have a minor selling this stuff and if so can she be a success at it. Please I would like to discuss this properly with her and I have emailed these people and had no reply
    Kind Regards,

    Thanks for that review…I’m actually a Kyani distributor and would like to say that there is now a great formal training plan, weekly training webinars and monthly meeting that include great training..so things are changing! (At least in Australia..I can only assume the US is the same). There is also an invaluable connection to your upline who are constantly available for questions or 3 way calls with potential prospects.

    The Kyani model is very different to other MLM companies as there is actually an app you download onto your phone, allowing you to do everything from that if required. On top of this there is a ‘ Done for you model’ which was actually created by an introvert as he hated ‘ cold selling’. In Kyäni this isn’t done. Its one of those things where that information is not available unless you’re a member I guess.

    Plus with Kyani if someone isn’t interested then that’s fine…no badgering etc…plus a whole heap of other different methods to other MLM companies…which I won’t go into now. You go into the kyani science page and you can see the white papers for the products which onclude scientific research including indendent reviews. Don’t get me wrong…yes you do need to put some work in…however there genuinely is a great potential to actually progress and often quite quickly.

    In fact I was very sceptical at first…my partner went to a meeting and came home all amped…my response was “oh you got sucked in!” However he persisted so I did a LOT of research until I realised…this looks good. I’ve been into natural health all my life as I was raised in this environment and the product ingredients blew me away! So yep after 2 weeks I agreed we’d join.

    Also yes it may cost money…however you get more than you pay worth if products for that money in your ‘ starter pack’ plus there’s certain ways you can get at least 75% of your money back in the first 3 months…and very acheivable! You think how much it costs to join or start any ‘normal’ business and really when you think that way it’s not much! I truly believe in this product and company or I wouldn’t say all this ? my goal is to work my own hours so I can work from home and stay with my children ( once I have them).

    Thanks again for your review and thanks for those who took the time to read this! ?

      Thank you Tina for the comment. Just joining the kyani family myself and my upline is so helpful and patient. The training is fun, but of course it’s work. I actually make six figures at my current job, but lack freedom. Thank you again for your post. It gave me confirmation to continue on my kyani journey.

    Hi Peter. Thanks for the review on this MLM company. I only have one question: If the IBO can’t keep selling the products, does he/she get demoted?

    Thanks.

    1. Peter G. Post author

      No Andy, I believe as long as you continue paying the auto ship fees and are still ordering products, there is no reason why they would do that. The thing is, even if the IBO is unable to continually sell the products, he or she will end up with a ton of unused leftover products. That I find, is one of the biggest issues with these MLM’s!

    I am a Kyani distributor. Only after taking the products for 3 months. Yes it takes you getting out of your comfort area and initially talking to people but it pays. The product does work. The compensation is great not to mention the Dream car program you hit at Saphire. I’ve only been distributing a few weeks and the first check for 80.00 for very little effort was a surprise. Not to mention the money off the sales themselves.

    Thanks to Kyani, I’m off antidepressants, blood pressure meds, and no longer drink energy drinks. I am a huge skeptic so that’s why I actually took the product before endorsing it. My father in law is off his diabetic meds. Any changes from meds to Kyani were made under a Dr. supervision. He signed off on no longer needing them.

    I can honestly say this stuff is great and so is the company. That is just me though. Thanks for looking into it but I wanted to add, those that actually take the product usually become distributors, not just because of the money but because we believe in the product. I saw all the testimonies online and still didn’t believe. it wasn’t until I had my own testimony I locked arms with this company and am able to look back without a single regret. The upfront costs were the best investment I’ve made. Have a blessed day.

    Hello Peter. Very nice information. I’ve never heard of Kyani before, though I’ve come in contact with several MLM companies in the past. The IBOs always made me feel like they were trying to get me to join some super secret society. And everyone would tense up as soon as I started asking questions. In order to get any real details about the business model, I was always forced to do my own independent research. Wealthy Affiliate is truly a great community to be apart of. I’ve never experienced anything like it. I appreciate your honest review.

    1. Peter G. Post author

      Hey Antonio! Yes as far as I am aware, Kyani is certainly gaining an increasing amount of leverage in the past year, mainly by promoting a lot of over-hyped products along with the use of its MLM opportunity. Haha funny you say “Super secret society,” since I can totally visualize what you’re claiming. Once the questions come out, these types of companies are always very hesitant to disclose information that could end up jeopardizing the opportunity as a whole.

      I agree with you even more, concerning Wealthy Affiliate.. To be quite honest, companies like Kyani and W.A. simply are irrelevant when it comes to earning online. Kyani is all MLM, just like the internet is.. It seems as though 99.9% of earning opportunities are truly monopolizing the online marketing industry and taking too great advantage of hard honest workers. It can be very hard to find an unbiased position when reviewing companies like Kyani, and other MLM’s. Especially when you’re unaware of the companies TRUE motive and intent behind their corporate values.

      I feel like most of the time, companies will simply take whatever product they have at hand, simply to create an MLM opportunity.. I just find that simple notion so crazy!! Without the product it is nothing but a Pyramid Scheme. Therefore, the better and greater the product/service is, the more legitimate I find the opportunity being, when it concerns MLM.

      Wealthy Affiliate is an experience like no other! They have taken an approach that most online marketing individuals can never find the courage to. That’s because MLM is a much easier sell I believe when it comes to the masses out there.

      Anyway your welcome, and its really all thanks to Wealthy Affiliate, for teaching me how to be as respectful and honest I can be as an entrepreneur!

    Hey Peter,

    I don’t think I have heard of Kyani before I am truly grateful for wealthy affiliate as they offer free access to getting started training, with out paying a dime, it’s totally 100% up the customer to decide if they choose to upgrade. For me it was no brainier, because I wanted all the training to be able to succeed online. I have tried several other MLM’s before but one thing that turned me away from it, is the constant purchasing their products to continue with their mlm program, to try to make a profit. Really enjoyed your review on Kyani, you really did a great job.

Just simply writing my review and take on them, while getting paid for it. Now that’s what I call “making money online” ;) You already know though!

    Hi Peter. There are so many MLM outfits anymore, how can one keep track? I’ve never heard of Kyani before. I’ve been involved in a few and it is extremely difficult to make it work out.

      There are way too many MLM companies out there, many of whom which are becoming increasingly disturbing in their schemish ways and methods. Interesting to hear you were once an Amway distributor. I’ve written a review on Amway as well. While Kyani does offer a somewhat better means to creating an online income, Amway has proven both these opportunities to be even HARDER and quite more difficult than they seemingly make it out to be. Anyway, highly appreciate the compliment. If interested in checking out my review on Amway, please feel free, and don’t hesitate to share this with others.

    Hi Pete,
    This is one I have never heard of. Thanks for all the great information on Kyani. That seems to be the big problem with all MLM programs, you have to invest money right away. That was one thing that impressed me about Wealthy Affiliate. I didn’t have to pay anything up front. I had full access from the beginning in order to see if the program would work for me.

      Hi Angela,

      Appreciate the comment and reply. Yes, Kyani seems to be one of the faster growing type IBO and MLM opportunities. However, it seems not much different than similar opportunities like Amway and especially Dubli, which is a complete SCAM in my opinion. Nevertheless, I appreciate your input and take on Wealthy Affiliate. Its affordability to test out the product for free is an amazing attribute and provides for great potential in terms of a legitimate opportunity offering Wealthy Affiliate inevitable growth, as well as nothing but awesome reviews!
