XanGo MLM Review: Another Pyramid Scheme?

Name: XanGoxango review scam or legit?

Website: www.xango.com

Owner: Joe Morton

Price: $35 Distributor Fee & $100 XanGo Starter Pack

Rank: 35/100 – Not Recommended

What Is It?

XanGo is a widely popular MLM network marketing company and opportunity that sells juice supplements to individuals. Their popularity stems from the claims that these juices hold microbial, antioxidant, and immune strengthening properties.

But more importantly, is the fact that XanGo has its own unique income earning opportunity that anybody is able to join.

In this post, you’ll find out what XanGo really is, how it operates, and whether or not, this is an illegitimate pyramid scheme, or a worthwhile opportunity.

How Much Is It?

One of the most important factors for anybody looking to get started in an online business opportunity or venture is the price of joining.

Too many times you will find an opportunity will either charge you a hefty fee up-front, or push you into paying for the products first, before you have even sold anything. Not always, but a lot of times this can be our first sign that an opportunity is a scam.

In this case, we’ll be going over both the price and compensation model that is being used by XanGo.

It is important to note that in the case of XanGo you will not only need to pay a membership fee to become a product distributor, but the actual product itself. Currently the price to become a distributor is $35. What you end up getting in return is your XanGo starter kit, along with a free xango.net website, which is really nothing more than a duplicate used by all its other members.

In regards to the XanGo products, you will be able to start out with four bottles of XanGo juice, which will cost you $100, and can be re-sold at $45 each.

Another option you can choose instead of just selling the bottles, are to sign-up other new XanGo distributors who will in-turn need to buy their own case of XanGo juice as well.

One of the seen disadvantages when using XanGo’s business opportunity is its very low commission rates for sponsoring new distributors, which is in the range of 20% to 30%, unlike most MLM opportunities that will offer you an upwards of 50% in commission.

XanGo Compensation Plan

The compensation plan used by XanGo can be considered very complex to say the least, but is important nonetheless.

As previously mentioned, you’ll only get 20% in commissions for signing up new individuals. Therefore, by selling $100 in XanGo products you will earn a total of $20. However, by signing up with XanGo’s autoship program, you can earn a total of $30. But this would mean you’ll be paying more in monthly fee’s for the product itself.

Because XanGo operates solely upon an MLM based structure, you have the opportunity of earning more money down 9 levels deep, making it all the more attractive. I personally find this to be much over-exaggerated, and can take years to reap the residual income benefits that may be provided.

Moreover, you can earn up to 10% in earnings for each of these 9 levels, but are subject to various requirements. For example, by the time you reach level 3, in order to reap the benefits, your sponsor must also refer 3 new people in order to reach the fourth level. So if he can only manage 1 or 2 new people, you can’t expect to move forward.

Who It’s For?

XanGo is definitely a tough opportunity to get involved with, which I believe boasts too much about it being a method for you to become a 7-figure earner. There are an array of disadvantages when using XanGo that one would find very similar across most of todays similar MLM opportunities.

The product that XanGo sells itself for example, is extremely expensive. One 24 oz bottle of juice will go for $45! This makes it all the more hard and difficult to sell to other people (despite the fact they claim you don’t even need to do any direct selling in the first place).

And despite the free website they give you as a way to help you drive sales, don’t allow you to personally customize it.

As a result, you cannot expect to receive any legitimate traffic on Google’s own search engines, making it nearly impossible to make new sales and sign-up new XanGo distributors from the comfort of your own website.

This has resulted in many individuals concluding this company as nothing more than a mere scam and found it nearly impossible to sell this overpriced juice to regular consumers and individuals.

XanGo Overview

To conclude, XanGo is not an easy company to begin making a full-time income with. I understand why any juice fanatic may want to get involved with the company, but for those looking for a legitimate way to begin making money online, is not something I recommend.

For one, their compensation plan in no way lives up to the hype. You’ll be needing to make a lot of sales and begin recruiting a lot of people, to set yourself up for the future.

Secondly, the tools and resources being used to help set you up for success are extremely limited. For anyone to become successful with XanGo they will need plenty of online traffic, and possibly their own customizable website they can rank on Google with.

XanGo does not offer this, and actually even disallows this for some reason. In my eyes this company is a scam trying to scrape any and every penny they can from its own consumers, and even distributors.

For a much more legitimate opportunity and method to making money online, I highly recommend checking out Wealthy Affiliate, which you can get started at no cost, unlike XanGo.

    Hi I am really confused about these mlm companies since I am rather new to this industry.

    Hi, My name’s McKay. I’ve been involved with the industry of network marketing for about a year and Xango for about 4 months. Both of my parents are very involved in the industry of network marketing so in my time I have been able to learn about a lot of different companies.

    I personally love the Xango products and they work for me. The juice has significantly helped my grandmother with her arthritis. The mangosteen and fruits in the juice do have great health benefits. Does it have to be through Xango? Of course not, there are other mangosteen juices on the market. There skin line also works great I have 0 complaints about any of the wide ranged products.

    As far as the compensation plan, I believe that it works as any other network marketing company. The income in the beginning will be small, and as the volume in your organization grows, as will your income. After being involved for 4 months I have a steady residual of $500/mo, and this is on the side of work and on the side of school.

    I believe that any “get rich quick” company would be illegitimate because anything really worth having, such as a phenomenal residual, does not come easy, but it will be worth it. Network marketing is meant to be part time until it matches or is more than your current income. I’ve met the CEO and corporate team and I would absolutely recommend Xango, as I would network marketing in general.

      Thanks for your input McKay and I’m glad to hear Xango has been working out for you. It’s great to see that the products themselves have been working out for others as well. $500 in residual income after 4 months isn’t all that bad, so congrats on your success.

      I guess my biggest hesitation when recommending people to join Xango’s business opportunity might be the fact that network marketing really is a tough business to get involved with. It’s really not all that different from any other typical direct selling opportunity.

      I feel that in order to be successful with a company such as Xango you really need to have a large and growing network in order to get others involved. In my opinion, I feel like having to sell, recruit, while also building your team is a whole lot to handle. A lot of your success thus, isn’t only dependent on your efforts, but the efforts of your team and is why I feel uneasy when it comes to network marketing vs. affiliate marketing.

      Nonetheless, I really do appreciate your input on XanGo and I know that there are some people who are fit for this opportunity. But I think we both know that it isn’t for everyone. You touched on another great point as well.. If you were to join XanGo, you can’t exactly expect to be making residuals by tomorrow, lol.

    Great review, I found in pretty much impossible to sell this juice. Later I found out that the so called expert doctors making the incrdible claims of Xango happened to be related to the founders of Xango. Example chief Doctor any spokesman for Xango is Dr Fred J Templeman, the father in law of Xango founder Joe Morton. Big scam, and big lies to sell juice.

      Thanks Carl! This kind of thing isn’t unusual in the world of MLM. The owners tend to be close to each other and the product claims are rarely as true as they say. Most of the times what they do is create a product and simply stick a label on it with a bunch of nutritional facts that is rarely ever backed up by real scientific research. Most of it is just “mumbo jumbo.” Great job doing such diligent research on XanGo. I’m glad you found out the truth about this company and information on who’s really in charge.
