Income Revolution Review

Income revolutionWelcome to my Income Revolution review. I first heard about Income Revolution on the radio recently and I wanted to learn more about this Income Revolution-Sean Hannity connection. There was a bit of confusion while I was researching as there seems to be more than 1 “opportunity” using that name. (1 in the U.S. and another in the U.K.) For this review I am writing about the Income Revolution Sean Hannity endorses on his radio show.

 

There is very little information about this opportunity on the home page except that you will be a Brand Partner for Nutrie. I had contemplated filling out the form just to see what information I could get but I don’t want these people having my phone number. I don’t need a pushy sales person calling me just so I can learn more about their offer. What’s even worse, they want you to authorize them to send you text messages which could result in charges on your phone bill! Instead, I decided to look into what people where saying about Nutrie and try to learn more about the compensation plan they are offering their distributors.

 

As I suspected, this is yet another MLM pushing grossly over-priced drinks hoping to cash in on America’s health craze. Most of the reviews you’ll find are written by Nutrie distributors talking about what a great opportunity it is. No surprise there. Finding the compensation plan took quite a bit of digging. To be honest with you, I couldn’t really make sense of it so I posted this link Nutrie Compensation Plan

 

As I was saying, you are selling over-priced products in the health industry and your potential earnings are directly tied to your ability to sell these products and recruit others to do the same. These products are not clinically tested and have no REAL proven health benefits and of course, results are not typical. That doesn’t seem to be a huge concern to many people who have jumped on the healthy lifestyle bandwagon. People seem content to believe they are making healthy choices rather than take the time to learn what actually is healthy.

 

I was a bit surprised that a company who uses a MLM model for distributing their products would advertise on the radio. One of the aspects of MLM’s that made them so enticing was the fact that products could only be bought through distributors and new distributors had to be sponsored into the business. Because this business model relied on “word of mouth” the people who worked the hardest could gain a respectable percentage of the market share. By advertising on the radio and allowing people to join directly through a website is to shoot your own distributors in the foot.

 

If you’re considering joining an MLM, find one who doesn’t use marketing methods that will undermine your efforts. Also beware of anyone who wants personal information before they explain their compensation plan. I would definitely steer clear of Income Revolution.

  • Thank you for writing this. I also caught the commercial on Hannity and checked out their site. Red flags went up when they wanted to confirm my phone number and asked when they could call me. This was before any actual job information was available. If you are too ashamed to be freely honest whith what you are selling then really I want no part in it lol.

    • I agree. That’s why I wanted to create this review. You shouldn’t have to trick people into your deal. If your deal is good enough, you can’t keep people away from it. Thanks for reading :)

      • Steve, I just wanted to clear things up a bit. First of all, Income Revolution isn’t tricking anyone. You can see the Nutrie name and logo right on the front page of the Income Revolution site…no hiding it. The Income Revolution site is a company marketing tool that generates leads for it’s distributors. They are not shooting their distributors in the foot…they are helping distributors connect with people who are interested in starting a business. Personally I think that is absolutely amazing! Every MLM company I know of expects you to hound your family and friends…not this one. Interested people come to you–pretty ingenious if you ask me!

        • Hi Karen,
          Thanks for your comment. You’re right about the Nutrie logo being prominently displayed on the site. However it doesn’t mention that it’s an MLM and was kind of the point of this article. There are many people out there who believe that MLM’s have been done to death and don’t want to get involved with yet another one.
          I agree with you that getting prospects to come to you rather than chasing them down is pretty ingenious.
          If this opportunity is working for you, then my hats off to you. And I sincerely mean it when I say that I hope for your continued success,
          Steve

    • I wanted to comment as well. The way that website is setup is when someone puts their information in and best time to call, your information then goes to a random distributor, most likely in your area, who can then sign you up for selling their products. The website Hannity puts up is not a direct line to the company at all, it’s meant to generate leads to the local people on the ground that can get you started in their network. This business is just like any other mlm so it does take some effort to make money. Not to mention you have to believe in it. I started selling ringcentral phone service a year ago to local businesses and their employees to replace landlines. I get a good price for being their sales person strictly on a commission basis. Not everyone believes in what they sell but it helps if you do.

      • Thanks for the input Joshua. I figured there was some kind of third party thing going on. The problem is, it’s hard to tell exactly which company you’re going to be dealing with.

    • Thanks for checking up on this. you did all the work for me that i was going to do. Not wanting another MLM business. happy with the two I have. Also learning Affiliate Marketering. They all kind of work off each other quite well. I also have been successful helping family and friends that have businesses, drive business to them too.

      if your looking for something fun to do and you like computers and video blogging or just want to know what I am talking about, replay back to me. If not, good luck on finding that business you like and want to work for the rest of your life.

      Thanks Again,

    • This post will probably be deleted, but I know about this company. Lets just get to the short of it. The bottom line is your working for AMWAY…a brand so sullied people run from it like it was the plague. You would be PUSHING their brand of vitamins Nutrilite.

      Amway has hid it’s name away from the public because it is a CULT company, and very closely associated with the Mormon Church. Their brand is so BURNED in the USA they have had to go to foreign countries to recruit sales people.

      If you are a LOW INFORMATION LEMMING this is a good suckers bet for you. If not RUN as fast as you can.

      • Delete this post? Nah, I love these kind of comments! Amway may have to changed their name ever so often because of the bad reputation they’ve received due to how their distributors conduct themselves. However, Amway is a company that manufactures and distributes products, period. The training system; books, CD’s and seminars are a separate business entirely. The Majority of them where Christians but they never forced that on anyone. As far as being a cult, not sure where people get that from. You can leave that business anytime you want without harassment or repercussions. Your post did bring some color to my day though. Thanks John.

      • Uh…I’ve been a practicing Mormon for over 37 years and I’ve never heard one person ever say a single thing about Amway. I’m not sure where you get the twisted idea that Amway and the Mormon church are connected.

        And for the record, the Mormon church (i.e. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) is not a cult. We worship Jesus Christ.

      • Hi there,
        Nutrie is NOT Amway. If you go onto the Nutrie website, the product information is there for all the world to see, as is the Comp Plan, which I have rarely seen with any other network marketing business. We believe in transparency and in living a healthier lifestyle. The products were put together by Dietitians, Naturopathic Pharmacologists and Doctors to make sure that they are the best quality possible – hence the cost. Does your Protein Shake contain 30g of top-quality, hormone-free protein, and not taste like chalk? How about your energy drink? Does it have properties that help reduce inflammation, reduce stress hormones, and not have up to 28 teaspoons of sugar? NO Health/herbal product on the market is labeled as being “clinically tested and have no REAL proven health benefits” because if herbals were “proven” to have benefits, it would bite into the pocket of the drug companies; and no product is going to produce results without some work from the user. Many of the “cheap” herbals on the store shelves have either just enough active ingredient to have it on the label or have parts of the plant that have no benefits at all. However, we do have to go through the same FDA approvals as everyone else. With Income Revolution, we ask for a phone number and email so that we can contact you and give you more information about who we are and what we offer. We try to phone, text and email you, but if you tell us you’re not interested, then so-be-it. We will not hound you or make you do anything that you don’t want to do. Also through Income Revolution you are entitled to a enrollment discount if you do decide to be a partner with us. Also, there is a full refund if you change your mind; nor are you forced to buy product to work with us.
        Next time you want to critique someone’s company and way of doing business, please do some homework first and maybe talk to someone in the company to get some facts.
        Rant ended.

        • My review is just my opinion based on what I know about the MLM industry and the health drink craze. People should do their due diligence and not rely on my review alone to make any decision about weather or not to look into what income revolution has to offer.

  • I was disappointed to see that Hannity and others I respected endorsed this pyramid scheme. I guess he’s no different than the others. He will say anything for a buck.

  • Thanks for your information. I clicked on several of the links but was so skeptical I just quit looking until I saw your response. I sure appreciate your honesty and time to put this website together to let others know. I am dissappointed that Sean Hannity advertises this and I will let him know what I think.

      • From what I understand, Sean Hannity knows perfectly well what and who he is endorsing. The same as Kim Lyons from “The Biggest Loser…” She helped develop our final product and the weight loss program that we offer.

  • I too am disappointed At Sean Hannity since I seak enjoyment out of his program on the radio. It just shows you that it’s all about business and how much are they paying for that endorsemant. It’s like the monkey on the leash, give him a quarter and he’ll do a trick. Give him a dollar and he’ll do a better trick ! Sad, but true.

  • My husband heard this on Hannity,he trusts has been a fan of his for years. Because of his endorsement, he wanted me to check it out!

    • I too heard about Income Revolution on Sean Hannity’s show. Putting this review together was like putting a puzzle together. All I could find where bits and pieces here and there. I did enjoy the process of researching and writing it though. I hope you enjoyed it :)

  • MLM is quite real. This is not a pyramid scheme. You get paid commissions for a product whether you think it’s overpriced or not, it is what it is…

    I’m saying this because it’s true and I’m not involved with this company or the Income Revolution marketing partners.

    Have a good one and check out where our bread and butter come from…10 years experience in this great industry. It’s too easy not to do it, and it’s too easy to do it.

    • Hi John,
      I didn’t use the words “pyramid scheme” anywhere in this review. I can’t stand the phrase pyramid scheme. What people really mean is a Ponzi scheme which is NOT the same as a legitimate MLM. Most people are just not willing to learn the difference.

      People certainly have every right to sell whatever they want at whatever price they can get and I have no problem with that. I just hate to see people taken advantage of in the health craze industry. There’s nothing wrong with paying a little extra for something if there are real benefits not available in similar products. However, in America alone, we spend literally 10′s of billions of dollars every year on products that promise health benefits that cannot be backed by science.

      I wan involved with the MLM industry 20 years ago and I did learn some valuable business skills and better work habits. If people want to get involved in that industry, I’d prefer to see them choose an MLM with a great support system rather than focusing on products that may not have the benefits they claim to have.

  • Steve, upon review of your review, I feel inclined to add my 2 cents. I would like to state openly I have become a Nutrie Brand Partner and what I can address here I will do so. I also have moved pretty quick through the plan and have generated some substantial income.

    That out of the way… You say the drinks are over priced, yet when you look at what ingredients are in each item and were to total up how much each supplement or ingredients individually would cost you would find you would be spending 2-3x’s more than the products. They are sold by the case(24 in each), I might add, for their pricing. This equates to the two products being around $3.00 a piece and our most expensive around $4.00 a piece. Not to mention the health and weightloss program that coincides and can be used via the app on any ios or android phone if you have one, outside of the standard internet. And the program and app is free with use of products. Not too terrible when you take into account what you pay for similar products that aren’t healthy or good for you at a store or gas station.

    As for the system I will say there’s probably never been anything like it in the industry to date. If you can use any social media platform, or follow the setup walk-troughs for any of it, this would be a no-brainer. There’s also no games with the mortgage program or bonuses in the comp. plan. You earn it you get it, no b.s. As for whats advertised sure you give info to find out more and you can be contacted by someone like myself. and theres many options the at Nutrie gives you in addition before you might consider using them.

    But i would also add that no one is pestering or swindling anyone and you seem to be stuck in the methodical times of the industry from 20 years past. My self and others included know that you have to get through the nos to get to the yes’s. that’s always been a golden rule in mlm. Not to mention everyone forgets to always mention its the individual who makes or breaks these businesses. If your lazy you wont make it, if you go at it and give it your all like anything else you will succeed.

    Besides call it affiliate marketing or what have you but you seem to be promoting here the same way your condemning and I couldn’t help but notice most of your links end up leading to and agin promoting http://www.wealthyaffiliate.com/a_aid/13f9393b which seems to look alot like Sean’s site. and from what I’ve found out is an mlm in and of itself…. not to mention our communities are operated, run, and designed for the same reasons to train and educate to success.

    So all said and done and ignorance aside if I may leave you with some industry wisdom… “you win by raising up your team, not by dragging down your competition.”

    • Thank you for taking the time to write such a well thought out rebuttal to my review and I’m glad to hear that you are making money with them. When I say the products are over-priced, that is obviously my opinion. However, MLM’s MUST inflate the prices of their products in order to pay independent distributors from the profit pool. That’s just the way it is.

      I may have been away from MLM’s for a long time now and maybe some things have changed, but an MLM is still an MLM, period.

      As for myself, I am a member of Wealthy Affiliate and I do promote them on this site. It is the ONLY program I have ever made money with! If you think that Wealthy Affiliate is an MLM, you are mistaken. I am NOT competing with Nutrie or any other MLM. I am simply providing information about Income Revolution.

      By the way, people find my site because I am a good article marketer, not because I get their phone number in advance.

  • Steve, I want to thank you for your compliment about my rebuttal and the sucess of my business. I understand your not in competition with Nutrie or a MLM. Perhaps I came on a bit stronger than I should have in such an aspect. But, none the less Wealthy Affiliate teaches Online Marketing and Business building as well as being compensated through your articles and advertisements on websites. Even if it is done without binary structures, pyramids, etc that some MLM’s were based on. Not insinuating that is what you are doing here, but I have looked at the company. I will say we both have made some strong points and have at least had an “intelligent discussion” on the matters at hand. I would just say try to be a bit more objective on some points versus opinionated and I will do the same. I wish you the best with your writings and business. Take care Steve and here’s to your continued success.

    • I thank you for your reply as well. My intention with this review was not to pick on MLM’s on anyone whom enforces them. I just wanted people to have some idea of what Income Revolution is all about without having to search through multiple site’s like did. My writing style is a bit “edgy” and I understand that. Keeps things interesting in my opinion. I hope for your continued success as well my friend. Take care.

  • I listen to Hannity with a skeptical ear so when I heard the commercial for Income Revolution I figured I would at least look at the website. Sure enough, it asked for my phone number but gave no information so I declined to provide my number. I don’t want an MLM calling to ask me for money, i have learned most MLM enterprises are not worth the effort.

    • I hear you Stephen. I have met people who where tremendously successful with MLM’s but I could never build a team who would do anything. I have much more success building website’s than I did building down-line’s. Thanks for commenting.

  • I found the article and all comments very useful. I am learning how to make an income online and there are certainly many pitfalls and a lot different things to learn about. With so many scams, its very hard to tell what is real and what’s not.Thanks for writing this article.

  • Thank you for your review. It is so frustrating when you listen to these radio hosts and for some strange human reason we begin to trust people we have never met simply because we hear them everyday through our car speaker and the like. I must admit i feel pretty silly every time i realize that i have been naive and gullible and duped into believing that those people wouldn’t support it if it is a disreputable company. And even if they aren’t necessarily disreputable, at very least they aren’t completely transparent. I am a single mother of two and have recently been unable to work due to injury and desperately want to find a way to make money from home but each time i think i might find one they always turn out to be a scam or highly exaggerated. Thank you for making this one easy. I will keep my fingers crossed and read more of your website in hopes of finding something legitimate.

    • I share your frustration along with many others. I had to try many things before I found what worked for me. Don’t give up, you’ll find something eventually.

  • Curious that Hannity would endorse this. Never had much time to entertain MLM sales people. Usually i get cornered by them at wal mart, or sams club. I can usually spot them because they ask me about the most random things and talk to me while using cue cards. I will stick with being one of those suckers who works his butt off for a pay check.
    “We sat and drank with the sun on our shoulders and felt like free men. Hell, we could have been tarring the roof of one of our own houses. We were the lords of all creation…”

    • Hi Alex,
      They’ve created this website to capture leads so they don’t need to corner people the way they used to. Not a bad idea actually. I like the Shawshank Redemption reference. Thanks for the comment.

  • I didn’t want them to have my phone # so I changed one # and can always take them off my e mail list. I have checked into a # of these and so far none of them work for me. There’s always a catch.

  • Well written, Steve.
    How do I contact these folks?
    I’m working with Christopher Markowski and his show syndicated on over 100 radio stations, mostly talk or news/talk. “The Watchdog on Wall Street.” He runs an investment consulting firm called Markowski Investments and so I feel he’d be a great endorser for this company and they’d get his services for pennies on the dollar compared to Sean Hannity. Thanks for you help.
    Kindest Regards,
    Bob Curran

    • I wouldn’t have any idea how to contact them. Perhaps you could leave your phone number on their site and someone will certainly contact you.

      • Nutrie, the owners of the site Incomerevolution.com, hired lawyers to try and have my site taken down based on erroneous accusations of copyright infringement. That is all I need to know about them :)
        Steve

  • Surprised to hear about this on Hannity. Had to check it out due to his endorsement. I tried one of these type markets back 11 years ago , a company called ” Market America” i was traveling a lot with my construction job and met a guy on a plane that new how to recruit salesmen. Now granted, he seemed to be doing very well back in Boston and up the east coast with his Pyramid construction so i decided to give it a try to supplement my income , and i tried diligently for 14 months, with the gatherings at my home trying to recruit and sale these health products and vitamins, but could never get the recruits to make it happen for me. It ended up costing me hard earned money getting started that i never really made back, Remember that it takes money to make money, period. Guess i`m just not the salesmen type and that`s what you gotta be to make any of these programs work and they do work for the right type of personality & the guys at the top, Not me , never again. Good luck to the rest of you with your endeavors and thanks for all the great comments.

    • I think MLM’s are a good business model but, finding people who will actually do anything is really tough. Thanks for the comment.

  • All three if the products which Nutrie markets contain Splenda. (sucrslose). Sucralose is a chemical sweetener similar to aspartame. Sucralose is a known thyroid inhibitor. Sucralose also increases the body’s craving for sugar. So much for healthy products.

    The products are intended to be used in conjunction with an exercise and diet regimen. The claims which attribute weight loss to the products alone are false and misleading. Any exercise and healthy diet discipline will produce the same results. It’s pretty simple, burn more calories than you consume and you will lose weight. Nutrie is simply another MLM opportunity, take it or leave it. I’ll leave it.

  • Thank You Steve! I have been out of work for over a year. I put in 5-10 applications a week and still no luck in my small town. My husband told me about income rev. that he heard about on Hannity. It was sounding so good until they asked for $997.00 to join. I started investigating and found you’re site. Thank you and everyone else for explaining that mlm to me better than they would. I think I am going to use what little money I have for gas and find a job with a sure paycheck! Thanks and good luck to everyone.

    • Not sure were you came up with $997. I’m given to understand that you can get started fairly cheap. But, if immediate income is a concern, finding a job might be the better route for you. If you want to start a business for free, an online business is the way to go.

      • Steph, I agree with Steve on being unsure where this $997 came from..actually, come to think of it, I believe that that’s the EXACT numbers, lol, it’s $9.97 dear! I just submitted my email & phone last week, and that is cost I was given. I feel that it’s inexpensive enough that it’s worth taking a chance, however, I wish I could find some more solid description of what exactly this job will involve. Does anyone have any first-hand experience, or know someone who has? Would be greatly appreciated!

        • Hi Kari,
          This is a network marketing business. I have been involved with a few of these in the past so I have a good understanding of they work.
          The 2 ways of earning income are as follows:
          1. You try to sell products directly to friends and relatives.
          2. You try to recruit others who will do the same.

          Any new members brought into the business by you become part of your network and you earn money based on how much business volume they create as well.

        • I have been with Nutrie for just over 1 month now and i am happy to say i am making quite good money and have lost weight myself. This is my first time in a mlm company and i am enjoying it :) The weight loss industry is huge – its not only the products i like but the program designed by Kim Lyons as well

        • Hi Kari, You can view the compensation plan at Nutrie.com in the “Opportunity” section. If you come through Income Revolution, and respond to the text, email, phone call – that will be a Nutrie Brand Partner trying to contact you to answer any questions that you may have and will teach you the ropes. We are product driven, yes, but customers get the product for the same price as the Brand Partners – there’s no markup. If you haven’t responded to the person trying to contact you – send them an email, and they will be happy to respond by your preferred choice. We have no intentions of causing anyone distress by racking up your phone bills etc. Many of us adopt 800 numbers so that anyone can call us toll-free.
          I hope that helps. If you have decided not to join Nutrie, good luck with whatever your endeavors are.

  • this actually shows you don’t have a clue on how things really work. they advertise on the radio to actually assist their distributors in growing their business and customer base. It is not undermining them, it is actually helping them. Nutrie thinks outside the box and goes well beyond the standard “mlm model” to grow a revolutionary business. It is not your typical network marketing as you assume it is. Educate yourself and don’t jump to conclusions without knowing what you are truly talking about, quit spreading incorrect information and pretending you know what is going on when you really don’t

    • I am quite aware of how these businesses work. MLM’s have been around since the 60′s so there is nothing “revolutionary” about it. Advertising on the radio and collecting leads through a website does in fact undermine distributors who are willing to harder than the average distributor while handing leads over to those who don’t work as hard. Sorry but, I actually DO know what I’m talking about here.
      By the way, before you insist that I “educate” myself, you may want to learn a bit about punctuation.

  • I can’t believe how easily convinced some people can be. So a radio personality endorses this product and people just go ahead and put something into their body that isn’t even FDA Approved. Not to mention what you touched on about the company undermining the efforts of their affiliates. Thank You for the heads up. I haven’t heard of this one yet but if I ever do I will remember this post
    Best Wishes
    Jason
