As a disclosure, read my opinion here MLM companies before continuing. That being said, I will give my best review on this opportunity.
To be really honest, I couldn’t get a lot of information from their site. Every time I tried to look for more information, the website would ask me who referred me. That is a real turn off for me, not everyone browsing is already ready to buy.
So if my information is wrong, let me know in the comments below. I’m pretty sure most people around here don’t have 400 dollars laying around in order to review MLM companies.
5Linx was started by 3 guys, Jeb Tyler, Craig Jerabeck, and Jason Guck. According to Wikipedia, this company follows a multi-level marketing strategy.
5Linx is an American multi-level marketing company headquartered in New York City, which offers utility and telecommunication services, health insurance, nutritional supplements, and business services. It was founded in 2001.
As of today, this company has been around for 16 years and doesn’t seem to be stopping.
They have 3 different categories of products, Home, Wellness and Business
- Tech Support
- Personal Security
- Security Systems
- Payment processing
- Mobile Marketing
- Security systems
- Satellite TV
They have products that people use every day
Their costs are comparable to other MLMs out there
A Stable company
It’s quite to spendy to get into and continue to sell
You have to market your family and friends
Their products are very competitive
WHO IT IS FOR
It is for those who are very good at MLMs, you need a personality that doesn’t care if your reputation is on the line. You are encouraged to market to your friends and family, plus everyone you set your eyes on.
It is not for those introverted people such as myself, who likes to write and do research on products. Just like any MLM company, you have to be willing to devote your entire life to them.
Did you know that you can offer a product for free, without signing up for a business license or membership? It’s called affiliate marketing.
I couldn’t get a whole lot of information on this, except that they give you education material and opportunities to go to conferences for training. The training is a little on the expensive side, plus you also have to pay your way to get there, transportation isn’t cheap these days.
From what I gathered your support is from the upline who referred you. That is usually the case with most MLMs, I suppose the idea is that the upline counts on their downline to gain money.
There are membership options that 5Linx provides. Becoming a member with 5Linx makes you a sales representative for their product.
Outside the membership, there are hidden fees that you should be aware of. To recruit someone, you need to pay for the recruitment forms and shipping costs.
Basic membership: $99 – This first package grants you between 10 and 20% commission on product sales and is charged at $99.00 plus an additional $5.95 shipping and handling for the starter kit.
$399 Leader Starter Kit – The second package gives you “enrollment”, a bunch of marketing packages, 40 x $10 gift cards, Hi5 dietary supplements, marketing paraphernalia and an “energy certification” at the cost of $399.00.
$? VIP Starter Kit – This, the last package, gives you all the benefits of the previous two packages, except that you gain 100 x $10 gift cards and one ticket to an “international event” valued at $149.95.
I try to steer people away from MLM companies because most of the products that they charge you to sell you can sell for free as an affiliate. Perhaps if you want to devote your entire life to one product, then be my guest.
