What Is Kyani? – Miracle Cure Or Snake Oil?



what is kyaniWhat is Kyani? Kyani manufactures and distributes products that cater to the health conscious people who have jumped on the health product bandwagon. The health food industry is a multi-billion dollar industry and Kyani is just one more company who is positioning themselves for a piece.

 

There are 2 sides to the Kyani business model. The product side and the home based business opportunity side. (Yes, this is an MLM in case you were wondering) In this article, I’ll break down both sides of this business and let you decide.

The Kyani Company


Kyani is based out of Idaho Falls, ID. It was founded by 3 families who are massively successful in other industries. For research and development of their products, they hired a bio-chemist who spent over a decade extensively researching the health benefits of Wild Alaskan Blueberries. The main ingredient in the “Kyani Health Triangle”.

 

Kyani’s goals are two-fold:

 

  • Distribute products to help prevent common health problems
  • Provide a lucrative compensation and incentive plan for ambitious, independent business owners

 

First, a look at the products.

 

Kyani Products


 

 Kyani Sunrise®

 

Kyani Sunrise® is a blend of vitamins, minerals and trace elements along with their flagship ingredient Wild Alaskan Blueberries. They claim that the anti-oxidant effects of Wild Alaskan Blueberries is 20 times more potent that the regular blueberries found in super markets. A “Super” anti-oxidant.

 

Some of the claimed health benefits include:

 

  • Increased Immunity (All 3 products claim to help with this)
  • Heart Health
  • Stress Reduction
  • More Energy
  • Better Flexibility
  • Improve Concentration
  • Reduce Inflammation (All 3 products claim to help with this)

 

Kyani Sunset®

 

Kyani Sunset® blends their flagship ingredient (Wild Alaskan Blueberries) with Wild Alaskan Salmon oil and Tocotrienols. The sources extracted from these “super foods” is asserted to help with:

 

  • Blood Sugar Levels
  • Healthy Cholesterol Levels
  • Cardiovascular Health
  • Hair And Skin Health
  • Promotes Better Sleep

 

 

 


 

Kyani NitroFX®

 

The final product in the “Kyani Health Triangle” is Kyani NitroFX®. This product delivers a powerful dose of nitric oxide to assist every cell in your body! Some of the claimed benefits include:

 

  • Kyani NitroFXImproved Blood Flow
  • Improved Circulation
  • Improved Energy
  • Improved Blood Sugar Levels
  • Reduced Free Radicals
  • Improved Nutrient Absorption

 

 

 


 

I am not a chemist or a health care expert so, do your research before putting blind faith into the claims of what these products can do for you.

 

Kyani Compensation Plan

 

One thing I can say about the Kyani company is that they seem to have taken the time to put together a very lucrative compensation plan. I found several charts online but they were a bit hard to understand. Luckily, there are some videos available to show you how their compensation plan works.

What I Don’t like 


 

Before I explain what I don’t like about this program, I need to make something very clear. I am not bashing the Kyani company in any way! I am not saying this is a scam and I am not saying anything derogatory about them or their distributors!

 

The simple fact is….. I don’t like MLM’s!

 

My reasoning is simple. The numbers are not in your favor! 95% of all people who get involved with an MLM fail to make money. You can decide that YOU will be a 5%’er and stick it out, but the same numbers apply to anyone you recruit. That means that you will need to recruit 100 people to end up with 5 people who stick around for more than a couple of months!

 

I wasted years of my life and thousands of dollars trying to build teams with several MLM business models. I could not make them work no mater how hard I worked!

I loved the idea of a business model that uses leverage. Leverage is how the rich get richer. That’s what I love about having an online business. I can use Google and other search engines to leverage my business and not have to worry about recruiting people.

    Very interesting read Steve. I’m glad to get your opinion on Kyani, which I thought kind of seemed like it was just another company among many trying to corner the health product market.

    The real problem, like you say is the fact that it’s an MLM! These business models require ALL of a persons time, energy, and powers of persuasion, pleading and enticing.

    They are guaranteed 100% stressful, nerve racking and exhausting! Having almost joined up with one, I’m so thankful I did further research and backed out! Jamie.

    • Steve

      The health food market is huge and people are often willing to overpay for products in this niche. That works out well for Kyani because you have to artificially inflate the cost of your products to pay your distributors. Many times, these “health” products are nothing more than placebos with fancy names.

      Just mentioning that your product has a “Super” anti oxidant that can only be found in Alaskan wild berries is often enough to impress people. It sounds healthy, who cares if it’s true or not?

      I’m glad to see that you decided to go another route rather than get involved with an MLM.

  2. Igor

    Hello!

    I have never heard about Kyani before but I know that health product niche is very big. Whether it`s MLM type of business or not, is not directly the problem if those products are good. I have heard about many different business deals of this kind but never tried any of them so I can`t say anything specific.
    May I ask; did you try those products? Are they any good?

    Great article, by the way!

    • Steve

      I have not tried any Kyani manufactured products. I won’t pay for an overpriced product simply because it claims to contain “Super” anti oxidants. The idea behind anti oxidants is to keep free radical in check. While it’s not healthy to constantly have excessive amounts of free radicals in your body, the fruits and vegetables most of us eat takes care of them. Using a more powerful anti oxidant provides no extra benefits. It would be like extinguishing a match with a fire hose.

      • Dawn

        Nobody wants to pay for products just to see if you like them. If you are interested in actually trying the product any Kyani rep will give you samples to try so you can make your own decision. The products will speak for themselves.

        • Steve

          Thank you Dawn, that’s good to know. I think a reputable company should allow people the opportunity to try before they buy.

      • Finn

        Steve, the reality is that Americans don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables. We supplement because it takes time and energy to prepare actual food. Most Americans eat what is convenient and easy. So these things do play a roll in society.

        • Steve

          Most Americans do have unhealthy eating habits. If using products like the one’s offered by Kyani is the best solution for some, then more power to them. I still wouldn’t recommend this as a viable business opportunity though.

      • Sylvia

        I have tried the product and fell in love with it. At the time, i has an awfyl rash all over my body dye to hyperthyrodism. It helped me regulate my thyroid after trying several pharmaceutical products. To me, it was worth every penny because it helped restore my health. My friend’s oncologist recommended she continue to take it because somehow it was helping encapsulate the cancer in her breast. So, if you ask me, its worth trying the product. It’s like juicing in a pouch. Our health declines due to our poor eating habits, harmones, chemicals and processed foods we intake daily. I love it. I have never felt better in my life. I got great energy, sleep well and i am now healthy. I guess it depends on who you ask. My mom takes it, i take it, my children take it, and quite a few of my friends take it too. I joined not for the business but the health benefits. Thank you Lord for putting it in my path.

    • Vicki

      Just an FYI. I am a natural skeptic and do not promote any products that I have not personally tried and found to be, what I consider, good-great products. I got with a Kyani distributer and was given a 7 day trial of the Triangle products. They were awesome! I am 54 years old with a left rotator cuff that gives me pain and problems daily, a right foot that does the same. After 3 days on Kyani, neither hurt me……my Hot Flashes diminished and were lesser in severity. Is it the Kyani? I won’t know 100% for sure until I use, as I intend to, the product for a full 30 days. However, Kyani was the only change I made. I believe you must try a product to make an educated decision, do the research on all the products and make informed, intelligent decisions. Yes healthy eating and exercise is key to healthy bodies, but getting all we need from diet is next to impossible and 99.9% of folks don’t. Just my two cents. 🙂

      • Steve

        Thank you for your input on the Kyani products. You’re absolutely right that people need to do their research on products, especially ones that make health claims. I’m glad to see that you’ve some products to help you with some of your health challenges.

  3. Michael Hills

    I’m not sure about antioxidants either, or any so called studies about which trendy superfood is supposed to make us all live until we are 100. The Kyani products might very well be the real deal.

    Ultimately it’s a balanced diet that will do the trick.

    I work in the media. From my experience, one year, a study will come out saying coffee causes cancer. The next year, another study comes out and says coffee is an antioxidant that cleans the system.

    Every year they say something good or bad about it.

    It seems to me that researchers always seem to find whatever they are looking for… Any way, I’m rambling…

    What’s the difference to the amount of time one has to put into succeeding at a MLM model, as opposed to a regular online blog business?

    • Steve

      I know what you mean Michael. I can’t recall how many times eggs have flip-flopped from the healthy list to the unhealthy list and back. I think moderation and common sense is favorable to paying a premium price for so called “superfoods”.

      That is a great question you asked! I spent years trying to build an MLM business in my early 20’s and I all I did was hemorrhage money. Today, there are more MLM’s around than ever so the chances of building a long term, sustainable income with an MLM is near impossible! That’s not an opinion. It’s mathematics.

      If you build a thriving MLM business and it falls apart for one reason or another (and I have seen it happen), you would have to build another organization from scratch with a new company. Can you imagine how hard that would be?

      Now, if your affiliate marketing business starts under-performing because your niche dries up, you have the skills to move into another niche and those skills would probably allow you to profit even faster. There is NO WAY you can do that with an MLM.

  4. Sammi - www.alittlebitofextrahelp.com

    Hi Steve, what a really interesting and useful review. I haven’t heard of Kyani but I have to say the product and packaging looks amazing! I’m not a fan of MLM and I don’t really think you can be a winner at it either unless you have an existing business in that particular area. I’m sure they get a lot of business though as, as you’ve said health products are massive at the moment. Do you know anyone who has gone in to this? Sammi

    • Steve

      I don’t know anyone personally who is involved with Kyani. You see, I’m 40 something as are most of the people I associate with and people in my age bracket have been exposed to dozens of these things. We tend to view them as kind of a joke. I don’t mean to insult anyone who is involved with Kyani or any other MLM. It’s just a “been there, done that” thing for me. I happen to believe affiliate marketing is a much better business model.

    • Bruce

      I have a friend who is just starting with kyani. It’s his second day into it. The thing that gets me is just like any of theses businesses they try and sell you on how much he you can make. He has now made claims that friends of his have been selling and are making upwards of 50k a month. I asked him how long they been selling he states only a few months. I am thinking it’s a sponsor filling his head with dreams. And this so called super berry that only grows in Alaska is not true it grows a’s far south as Oregon. Just like any blue berry it’s good for you nothing more. I have not tried nor do I have any relationship with the company. It’s frustrating to see people who are already struggling to make a check get blindsided by a false impression that they will be financially secure within a short time. I will update on his progress in a couple of weeks. I too enjoyed the article

      Thanks Bruce

      • Steve

        Filling peoples’ heads with “pie in the sky” income opportunities is what these MLM’s are all about. Thanks for the comment Bruce.

    • Hanna B.

      ..Inflammation reduced and gone, blood pressure down, reduced wrist pain and bone pain(degenerative muscular and nerve) as well as fibromyalgia and neuropathy, chronic migraines, no longer an at risk diabetic, daily nausea gone, chronic bowl pain(ibs) reduced and gone most days, psoriasis, hairloss has stopped, I have stronger nails I used to just peel them off, ive quit smoking without even trying, im clear headed, and best of all :,,,,-) 🙂 🙂 🙂 ive started natural periods for the first time after 7 years, my hormones are balancing out, my emotions no longer drown me……I finally have a chance of having children…you see I was diagnosed with P.C.O.S at 13…..:/ only after two short months, I am not on any of my previous 12 medications and I am on the road to a healthier hopefully longer life…this stuff is amazing….. Oh and without even trying I’ve lost ten pounds.

      As of last week I became a distributor. I’ve already made $100 with having one customer and one fellow distributor. They only allow you three legs so you build down quickly. You rank quickly. My friend who’s been in the business for 7 months is making $7,000 the same for his girlfriend, they’ve never Had a real job and at 21 and 23 they’ve just bought their first house. Kyani’s compensation packages are actually really good, in November they will be taking there commission percentage to 60% for all customers. Which is amazing by mlm standards. They also by you a car at 9 – 12 people deep…… Also amazing.. They have a retirement package and of course the dream car program. Will get back with you in a month or so to see where I’m at! After flopping with several mlm businesses, I’m hoping with a product that works, a company that actually cares, I’ll remain healthier and get rich while I’m at it. Wish me luck.

    Hello Steve. I would like to tell that this type of model works as here, when you are passionate about product. Previously I worked with Tiens-Tianshi. They had customer service here, in North America, but moved out five years ago. I have been using their products 15 years already. They have the same type of business as you mentioned here. I think a big difference is when you use a product by yourself. I can talk without break about benefits, because I know how it works. I have like personal relationships with it. I could use it without recruiting people, because I like it and these products help me to be active and balanced. I wanted to tell, that when you offer products without passion, it is as duty, not joy. A duty to earn money at any price. I think it is not good. We can be tired after chasing customers and offering products, which are for us just tool earn money. We can be as robots on end. When product is good and worth to brag about it, I would be happy to spread message and show how it great is. It is just my opinion. Thanks for information about brand, which is new for me.
    All the best, happy writing, Nemira

    • Steve

      The personal relationships that you gain from building a business like this can be great. That’s one major componant that is missing from many MLM’s today since they focus only on recruiting and sales online.

  6. Ben Gilbert

    I just read your very thorough review about Kyani and their “discovery” about wild blueberries. They seem to be good business folks, not sure about the rest of it. Thanks for your research. I don’t like MLMs either, if it feels scammy, probably is. There are a lot of health benefits to blueberries no doubt, but to make an entire business model around their legitimacy around their pro chemist, is probably an exaggeration. Again, great business review.

    • Steve

      I believe that you need a unique product or at least something different that what everyone else has if you’re going to use an MLM distribution model. There is no doubt that foods made with real fruit are often healthier than foods consisting mostly of sugar. I am a bit skeptical about a “super” antioxidant. I think it’s more of a popular buzz word within the health community than an actual health benefactor.

  7. Gina

    I agree with you. I don’t like MLM’s either. I used to be involved in one a couple years back. I just wasted a lot of money and a lot of my time.
    Making an online business successful through SEO is a way better option. You aren’t trying to drain the pockets of family and friends while annoyingly trying to recruit people who don’t end up sticking with it anyways..

    • Steve

      Building a business online is a MUCH better way in my opinion too. I also agree with using SEO methods. That way, your information is being found by people who are actually looking for it as opposed to being “in their faces”.

  8. Sue

    Very interesting article. I also have not hear of Kyani but have heard a lot of bad things about MLM companies. Yes as you said, the health product market is so huge, and lots of people are so willing to buy those products. Very nice to hear your first hand experience with these type of companies.

    • Steve

      Usually when you hear bad things about MLM’s, it has to do with the marketing methods and pay structure. They may very well offer great products but from a business building stand point, there are much better ways to earn money.

  9. Tasos Perte Tzortzis

    Hello Steve , I am always interested in MLM opportunities , still trying to find one with a healthy compensation plan that could be proved profitable for all the members.

    I can not discuss about the quality of these products , like you I am not a chemist nor a user of such.

    Now as concerns the payment plan , I find it to be another confusing process.Why they make it so difficult?…All the compensation plans I have studies tend to work only for the Top Level Members.

    Why they don’t just use a simple referral plan with no levels and pay commissions on the sales , like in the affiliate marketing model?…I bet they don’t want to.

    You explained it right , you would need at least 100 members in your downline to keep 5 out of them.These 5 members will have to do the same for you.But that could last for an eternity.

    A friend of mine is co-operating with 5 MLM companies in order to make a decent living.And she is thinking of adding more to her portfolio.

    Another complex system from Kyani.

    • Steve

      5 MLM’s? She is a glutton for punishment. I agree that the compensation plans are a bit complicated too understand. I was involved with an MLM 25 years ago and the compensation plan was easy to understand. I think they purposely make them complicated so people will just focus on recruiting with the promise that the money will follow.

  10. Maria

    Hi Steve!
    I haven’t never heard of Kyani products before. In fact ten years ago I was very entusiastik about superfoods and other health products but I got really tired of the fact that there are immense number of different products coming out every year and there is little or no way to know if they have real effects or only placebo,

    About MLM. Before I knew anything about having online business I tried to sell Herbalife products but I failed miserable. Maybe because I didn’t have any parents or friends to sell for…

    Anyway I think you are right about MLM business. Luckily there are better ways to make money online 😉
    Maria

    • Steve

      Hi Maria,

      Due to the popularity of these so called “super foods” there are many studies being conducted and many times, they turn out to be nothing more than placebos. I’m not saying that is always the case, but it happens frequently.

      As far as selling MLM products, it’s very tough to do. You really have to be a great salesperson to convince someone to buy an overpriced product that they may not even need. Plus, you have to be very charismatic to build a large organization which is the only way to make the big bucks.

      For introverts like myself, affiliate marketing is a much better way.

  11. Merceadez

    Do you have a favorite Kyani product to promote? The Kyani Sunrise sounds yummy. The market for fordable healthy products has grown significantly with in the last 10 years. I may consider promoting a product like this in the future. Are these products just for adults or are they suitable for children as well?

    • Steve

      I don’t have any reason to believe that they wouldn’t be suitable for children. In fact, I’m sure they would have made a substantial effort to point that out if that was the case. Personally, I am skeptical about “super foods” and super antioxidants. There is so much good and bad information online about what is and is not healthy and you practically need a degree in chemistry to know which is which!

      There are internet marketers out there right now who are making fortunes online by using fear mongering and selling these super foods and supplements. If I wanted use that approach to marketing, Kyani products seem as good as any to promote. As far as building a team, no thanks. I have already said “never again” to MLM and that won’t change reguardless of the products being offered.

  12. Evelyn

    Hey Steve, I’m not into the MLM industry for the same reasons you stated. I do believe that if anyone wants to get involved into the MLM industry, they should really look at the product they offer. It’s important because the person will be representing their product and services. I’ve never tried their product nor am I interested. I feel that I could find these same products at a more reduce rate if I needed to. Thanks!

    • Steve

      I think what Kyani did smartly was to introduce a sort of unique product to the market. If you have an ingredient that isn’t common in most other products, then you can set the price without worrying about competition. Personally, I think many of the claims for these super healthy foods are a bit far fetched and not something I would pay extra money for, but there certainly is a multi billion dollar market there for these kinds of products.

  13. Simone

    A friend recently told me about Kyani but didn’t mention it was an MLM. She uses the products and thinks they are great.

    I am actually part of another health and wellness MLM (I make enough money to cover the products I use personally each month, but I am not making much more) but thought I would do some research on kyani.

    From what you have said I will probably just stick with the products I am using through the company I am a distributor with. There is so much competition for health and wellness MLM’s all claiming they have the best products. I think when you find something you like and works for you, just stick with it.

    As for the business model, it is not for everyone and it is not as easy to make money as they claim. Although I have some friends in my MLM company who are making insane amounts of money. I honestly don’t know how they are doing it.

    • Steve

      The people who are making insane money likely got in on the ground floor and have large organizations. The bigger it gets, the harder it is for all who come after since more potential partners are taken out of the pool. I’ve gotten a few responses to my poll and it seems about a 50/50 split as far people who love Kyani products vs. people who think they’re nothing special.

  14. RuthM

    Thanks for this article. I feel the same way as you about MLMs. They just never seem to make money for anyone you actually know. Where are these people with untold riches?. I had some friends who got into Amway about 20 years ago, and they worked So hard. The products were nothing special, and they ended up giving it up in the end, as they weren’t making anything, just alienating everyone they knew. And they are really smart and made money in their careers, so it was a warning sign that if MLM can’t work for them, then..well I think it would take a miracle.

    • Steve

      I was an Amway distributor some 20+ years ago too. Being a numbers person, the business plan made sense to me and I could see the potential in it. Unfortunately, most people don’t understand numbers so it was much harder to recruit than I thought it would be. Plus, people are lazy. Even when I could recruit people, nobody would actually do anything. I’ve spent thousands of dollars over several years trying to build an MLM business with no success. After trying affiliate marketing, I was profitable within a reasonable amount of time. For me, it’s the way to go.

  15. Edward

    This is the first time I come across Kyani, but the rules are the same if the business opportunity is based on MLM model.
    As you have said, in this model, the odds are stacked against you. You not only have to spend a lot of time recruiting new members and sell products, but also coach and retain your existing members.
    I seen many cases where people lose friends because they are too engrossed and aggressive in their MLM businesses.

    • Steve

      It’s definitely to tough industry. Not only is hard to find like minded people, but there are more and more companies competing for a shrinking pool of potential distributors. That’s why I ultimately turned to affiliate marketing. It has the same potential to earn residual income without the hassles of building a team etc.

      • Eric

        Steve. I might be signing up for this via another rep who is making a nice living off of it who introduced me to it. The only thing that I am having a problem with is the sunset supplement. I recently went to an all natural organic plant based lifestyle, and I do not like the fact that they include fish oil as their only means of Omega-3’s when there are other viable options out there that are just as effective if not more so, such as hemp oil, chia seeds, flaxseed oil, green algae, etc… I would really be happy if Kyani would offer some vegan alternatives to this and I’m sure a lot of strict vegans would be as well.

        • Steve

          Okay. Not sure why you have a problem with fish oil but, to each his own. I think people are putting way to much stock into what these health bloggers are saying based on nothing. Healthy eating really is just common sense. No need to look for ways to extract exotic chemicals from rare plants on the other side of the planet. More fruits and veggies, less junk. It’s pretty simple stuff.

  16. Carlton Gonder

    Unfortunately, the health market is one of those areas where money is going to be paid from those who think paying money is the way to their health. I do not like MLMs for the simple fact that the only person making money is the one at the top of the food chain. Why not put time and hard-earned income into affiliate marketing like Wealthy Affiliate, which is proving to work?
    Yours Truly,
    Carlton

    • Steve

      I have to agree with you after spending years and thousands of dollars in several MLM’s. Affiliate market flat out works and is much more worthy of your effort.

  17. Marcus

    I would say that the product itself is probably worth trying. I think that the blueberries probably are very good for you, and the vitamins and minerals are good for you as well. I’m just curious about how much it costs, because I would like to know whether it is worth buying.

    However, the MLM structure of this company is a real turn-off for me. I really don’t want to get involved in that kind of payment structure. It will only lead to bad things for most people.

    • Steve

      I’m sure the product is healthy as would be any fruits or vegetables from a local grocer. Many of these new “health” products love to use buzz words in their marketing such as “anti-oxidants”. I’m saying anti oxidants aren’t always a good thing, but they are not a cure all for poor health decisions. As far the MLM aspect, “Been there, done that”. Affiliate marketing is a better plan for me.

  18. Brian

    I’m with you on your opinion of MLM’s. I do my best to avoid them like the plague. This company seems to have a good product that they believe in. And in a world of growing angst against GMO’s, all natural health products that are as all natural as possible will do well.

    To make money at all in this MLM program, the audience would have to be willing participants, and as you said, that’s something that you can’t “make” work.
    Great review and conclusion.
    Brian

    • Steve

      Thanks Brian. I think the “glory days” of MLM’s are long gone and will only leave the vast majority broker and more frustrated than when they signed up. Affiliate marketing on the other hand, is just getting started.

  19. RuthM

    Why is it that there are so many MLMs out there that focus on the same types of products. Wellness and weight management. They are all the same. I wonder why?

    I am so with you about MLMs, what I don’t like is the way you have to sell to family and friends. I have been invited by so many friends into these opportunities and it’s just really awkward. I end up buying the cheapest product i can and politely having to say I am too busy for the business. Urgh, hate it!

    • Steve

      We seem to have developed a weird obsession with “wellness” products using all these buzz words. Since people are willing to pay extra for these products, it’s easy to hide the fact that they’re over priced which is perfect for MLM.

  20. netp

    Hiya – before I even knew what they were I was almost sucked into several MLM’s and like you say — realising what they’re like now, I just don’t like it. I realised just how hard it would be and plus, I’d need to be trying to sell products I really believed in — I don’t know much about these and have never tried them, but it’s not something I’d be interested in. I enjoyed your article thanks 🙂

    • Steve

      I also wouldn’t want to promote products that are over priced just because they use healthy buzzwords. I know some people are going to do it anyways and that’s fine. I don’t care how someone makes a living. I just know affiliate marketing works much better for me. Thanks for reading and commenting 🙂

  21. Yan

    I just had a meeting yesterday with a friend who is with Kyani. He broke it down for me extreamly well. They are basically giving away the product for people to try. If they decide they like it and want more you give them a site to buy off of and you get commission. What we would be selling is the 600 or 1200 “entry fee” by recruiting people. Another thing people don’t know is you will have to come out of pocket about 150 a month because they will be sending you your own supply of the product. Non negotiable. I feel like this isn’t as bad as previous MLMs because they put more thought into getting us paid faster and together but it still is going to take up most of your free time and effort. You will be going to meeting and presentations on top of your recruiting. Worth noting a lot of the people I know doing this still have their normal 9-5s and are doing this on the side.

      Thank you for your assessment of the Kyani program. I suppose forcing your distributors to buy a certain amount of product every month guarantees that anyone with a downline will make money every month. However, if you offer a great product or service, you wouldn’t need to FORCE anyone to buy anything. To me, this is enough reason to not get involved with Kyani.

    Most of us don’t like MLM cos we have had very unpleasant experience with MLM. The truth is 95% of the people work for 5% on top of the MLM hierarchy. This alone is proof that why would anyone want to spend time with any MLM or any of its variants. Let’s focus our time and energy with a rare gem we found in the world of Affiliate programs – Wealthy Affiliate. The most important thing one should take away from Steve’s post today, WA is it.

      MLM’s may have been a great opportunity 40 years ago when it was a ground-floor opportunity. Now, there are so many of them out there that it’s almost impossible to build a large organization that will continue to grow without having to constantly hustle for new recruits. Affiliate marketing, on the other hand, is just getting going. Lot’s of room for growth and endless opportunities.

    Hi Steve

    Kyani sounds so typical of multi level marketing programs. Like you I’m not a big fan. Everything is against you from their apparent scientifically superior products to their compensation plan you’ll never achieve.

    Personally I am a big fan of wealthy Affiliate, solid, sound and proven all the way. Awesome read.

    Hi there Steve,
    This is a very interesting article. I’m glad to get your true opinion on Kyani, I always thought of it to be like it was just another company trying to corner the health product market.

    The real problem, like you say is the fact that it’s an MLM! Most business models require TONS of people time, energy, and powers.

    Alot of them are stressful, nerve racking and exhausting! I almost joined up with one, I;m so thankful I did further research and backed out! Thanks

    Hi Steve, thanks for your article about kyani. One of my friends got involved with this company a few month ago, and she asked me if I would like to join in. But I don’t like MLM either. In my opinion, it is not about helping people; it is another way to get rich for only a few individuals. I have decided to do affiliate marketing. So I can make a decision on which products I would like to promote by reviewing them in an honest and comprehensive way.
    All the best from Anke

      As an ex several time MLM’er, I can tell you that affiliate marketing is a better business model by any criteria in which you can measure it.

  27. Hello all! I am a 41 year old mom of a toddler and let’s face it, I stay tired. I tried the 7 day trial and by day 4 felt amazing! I had not slept through the night for 3 1/2 years because I couldn’t turn off my mommy brain. Day 4 I started sleeping so well I had actual dreams. I was so excited about the product that I signed up. I have never done a mlm and despise them, but other than my kit purchase it doesn’t cost me any more than my monthly supply. You don’t have to have inventory or anything. If I make money (got a check already) great, if I don’t that’s fine too. I’m getting healthy in the process.

      If you truly feel the benefits of using these products and don’t care if you make money or not, I think that’s great.

  28. 1) How much Wild Alaskan Blueberry is there in “Kyani Sunrise”, 30 ml pack ?

    2) How do you call a company which

    – has long outstanding debts (since January, 2016) to its distributors ?

    – has long outstanding debts (since January, 2016) to its employees ?

    – creates a tax avoidance scheme for individuals by using Payoneer system ?

    – manipulates with corporate taxes in Europe ?

    – includes in its CEO counsels former leaders of finance pyramid companies ?

    Do you call such a company Kyani SCAM, FRAUD, CRIME or LEGITIMATE OPPORTUNITY ?

    Hi there,
    Many thanks for the great review and I have enjoyed reading this post.
    If I was to be honest, I had not heard about this business until now. It seems to be a great product to be involved with and I can see that you are passionate about the product, but not the business model.
    I too had some experience with mlm’s and never got very far. There was a lot of work involved and very little reward.
    However that was a time before the internet and emails etc etc. All the product had to be ordered by fax or over the phone and that was a lot of trouble. I wonder has the online side of things made that side of the work any easier…
    Cheers and thanks for the great post
    Cheers PB

      Hey Phil,

      I think using direct fulfillment rather than having to pick up your orders from your sponsor has made things much easier. On the other side of the coin, I think it’s much harder to make it with this business model today for a couple of reasons:

      1. With the internet. it’s much easier to launch a new MLM which means an exponential increase in competition.

      2. MMLM’s are a “people business” and the online world has made the world much more impersonal than it once was.

      Thanks for you input.

      Seve
