Company Name: Emza Gold
Do I Recommend Emza Gold?
Even though it is free to join, Emza Gold is an extremely unappealing company, one that pays you very little per sale and only has a single product. While you really can make money with Emza Gold, it certainly isn’t an idea that I’d recommend – and most people wouldn’t get far at all.
Instead, if you want to promote health products, it’s worth checking out affiliate marketing. That approach gives you access to a much wider selection of products and a significantly better chance to actually make money.
What Products Does Emza Gold Sell?
Unlike most other health and wellness companies, Emza Gold just offers a single product, which is called DailyGold. Now, you would think that if this is the only product on offer it would be amazing… right?
Well… it isn’t really. Basically, DailyGold is a liquid multivitamin supplement. It is gluten-free, soy-free and made in the USA, which are all good things but are hardly radical.
As with similar products, there is a fairly typical combination of vitamins and minerals, along with a proprietary blend that offers various compounds and plant extracts.
The specific combination of ingredients in this blend will be unique to Emza Gold but most of the individual entries can be found in other multivitamins and supplements. For example, mangosteen is the focus of the company XanGo and acai is a common ingredient simply because it is considered a superfood.
And honestly, the presence of a proprietary blend doesn’t mean much of anything. Most companies will offer something similar, even if the exact combination of components varies. You probably do get some benefits from the ingredients but the differences between various multivitamins typically aren’t dramatic.
So then, you end up with a multivitamin that’s really fairly average. But, typical or not, the product isn’t cheap. Instead, it will set you back around $48.99 for a 32oz bottle (plus shipping)– or $43.99 per month on autoship. If the product was powerful or unique, it might be worth the price. But, there isn’t anything to indicate that.
In fairness, there are two slightly unusual things about DailyGold. One that the multivitamin is a liquid. But, there are other liquid multivitamins out there and the style is just a different dispersal mechanism, it doesn’t offer many inherent advantages.
The other thing is what Emza Gold relies on with its marketing – that the product is high-quality.
The idea is nice, sure. But, there isn’t much evidence to support it. While the company makes all the right claims, they don’t link through to much proof, so you only have their word to rely on. Quality also isn’t a new theme for supplements anyway. There are other products that can make similar boasts about quality, including ones that can back up their claims.
For that matter, Emza Gold has few images of the actual product, which is highly suspect (although you can see the supplement on their video). Personally, I would like to see more transparency for any product that I planned to promote.
On a side note, the style of the bottle ends up looking relatively budget. The appearance of the bottle isn’t everything, of course. But, I imagine it would be difficult to convince people that this is an amazing supplement that can dramatically improve their health.
At best, DailyGold is a high-quality multivitamin supplement that is free from artificial flavors and is more natural than most. At worst, it’s an overpriced, run-of-the-mill multivitamin that doesn’t offer anything unique at all. For that matter, many experts argue that multivitamins are a waste of time and money, having little to no effect on most people who consume them.
The one positive aspect is that this is a consumable. So, if you get someone passionate about DailyGold, they may end up buying from you on a monthly basis. But, even so, trying to make money from a single product is hard enough… it’s hard to imagine how you could make consistent sales with something like DailyGold.
Is Emza Gold A Good Business Opportunity?
As a general rule, trying to make money from a wonder-drug-supplement is always going to be difficult. After all, you’re dealing with a hit-or-miss situation – either people are interested in the product at hand, or they’re not. At least with multiple products, you would have a better chance of making a sale and could target various areas of interest.
In this case, you’re also promoting a supplement, which is something many people simply won’t be interested in. The product itself also isn’t particularly exciting or unusual. Still, boring product or not, we do need to look at what Emza Gold offers and how you would get paid.
As always, the first aspect is simply getting paid to sell the products. In this case, you’re earning $2 per sale. That’s a horrible amount, given that the bottles sell for more than $50 when you include shipping. In contrast, most other MLMs offer at least 20% commission, often more.
You do also get a bottle for free if you get five people to order. That’s useful if you’re actually interested in the supplement but the idea won’t help you earn money.
Now, that $2 per sale does remain consistent. So, if you recruit people and they sell to others, you get $2 from those sales, and so on down the line (up to 8 levels). The totals can add up but you’re still dealing with relatively little income per sale.
The company estimates that you can earn around $19,000 per month by taking that approach. However, doing so does involve having 9,840 people in your downline. You don’t have to recruit or sell to all of those yourself but that’s still a massive number of people.
You could end up somewhere in the middle, where you earn less money but have a smaller team as well. But, you’re still dealing with $2 per sale. Unless you manage to recruit exceptional salespeople, it’s hard to imagine the approach being very powerful.
People also aren’t predictable. So, you’re likely to find that some people stop being involved over time. This could be because they can no longer afford the supplement or aren’t seeing any benefits. Whatever the reason, you may have some people order from you for months, while others drop out much sooner.
There are also other ways to earn with the company. Their Fast Start bonus is one of these. Here, you get $20 for the first five sales and an $100 bonus if those occur in the first 15 days.
Like most MLMs, Emza Gold does operate off a rank structure but it is a simplified one. In particular, there are just five ranks. The requirements get progressively harder as you go up the ranks but the bonuses increase too. The ranks are as follows:
- Executive Director
- Senior Executive
- Trail Blazer
- National Director
Because there are relatively few ranks, the requirements get tough fast. For example, the Senior Executive rank requires you to recruit three others who have an Executive Director in their downline. At the Trail Blazer level, you need 30 people in your downline and they all need to have 5 (or more) active customers. For this 30, no more than 15 can come from a single recruitment leg.
As such, the best way to earn money with the company is through your team. This includes the various bonuses and income from your team’s sales. This idea isn’t unusual but it still seems exceptionally difficult to reach the higher ranks, especially as the product simply isn’t that exciting.
Still, there are a couple of things that make it easier.
One is the costs. Most MLMs require you to buy an expensive starter kit and order products monthly. But, Emza Gold allows you to be a distributor without actually ordering yourself and there doesn’t seem to be a startup fee either. Additionally, you only need to make one sale a month to remain active.
The lack of ongoing costs is fantastic but it has a downside too. The approach means that members of your team may not be buying the product either, which decreases the income potential considerably.
Recruitment And Sales
One of the largest challenges of any MLM is trying to recruit and sell to enough people. Most of us have relatively small social groups and won’t have that many people that we’re comfortable trying to sell products to. Even if you’re extremely social, it can often be difficult to find enough connections to make the sales that you need.
Your team can help in that area, of course, as everyone has a slightly different social network. But, even so, you need to reach a fairly large group of people to earn significant income and doing so would certainly mean you have to recruit extensively.
The product choice for Emza Gold makes this even more challenging. After all, you’ve just got one product and it’s something that people would use at a consistent rate. With that, the best you can hope for is small and consistent sales each month (at $2 per sale).
In contrast, with companies like Norwex or Creative Memories you will sometimes see people spend hundreds of dollars at a party, especially if they’re excited about the products. This difference means that you have to market to a much wider audience for Emza Gold.
Emza Gold does have one advantage for recruitment, which is the fact that people can join for free. So, you may get more people willing to check it out than with most other similar companies. Still, the system means that people earn $2 from selling a $50 multivitamin – it’s hard to imagine many people getting excited about that.
The end result is that Emza Gold just doesn’t feel realistic.
The company isn’t really a scam and I’m certain that they do actually pay their affiliates. But still, unless you built a decent team, you’d be stuck earning just $2 per sale and that really is a lousy level of commission.
With an unappealing product and an extremely low compensation rate – Emza Gold has very little going for it. Even though it is free to get involved, you’d be much better investing your time elsewhere.
