Company Name: Wakaya Perfection
Do I Recommend Wakaya Perfection?
Many people may want to make money with Wakaya Perfection, especially as the company’s wording and images make the products sound idealistic. Nevertheless, I would suggest focusing on affiliate marketing rather than network marketing as a way to make money with selling “lifestyle” products. The biggest problems are the complicated compensation plan and the stigma of being part of an MLM.
At the same time, the products from Wakaya Perfection are overpriced and would only suit a limited audience. This would make sales difficult in many cases and could limit any potential to make money.
What Products Does Wakaya Perfection Sell?
Wakaya itself is an island in Fiji, so it’s no surprise that Wakaya Perfection strongly plays on the idea of paradise and a perfect lifestyle. With that in mind, the company is all about health and wellness, offering a range of products and services that promote this idea.
Now, the company itself is legitimate. And, it is associated with a resort and spa that is located on the island. But, this doesn’t say all that much. Realistically, a company can be legitimate and still be a poor choice as for a way to make money.
So, first of all, there are various health-based products, including cookbooks, supplements, ingredients and similar items. Many of these play into the idea of being as natural as humanly possible, which results in products like ‘organic pink Fijian ginger’ and ‘Fijian kosher sea salt’.
The company also offers descriptions like the image below for their products (this one is for the sea salt). Now, it’s debatable whether or not premium salt is any actually better than regular salt – but it’s likely that any difference isn’t dramatic. And, this particular salt costs $24.40 for a 1.4 oz container, which is far more than most people would be willing to pay.
I’m not going to go through all the products but the general idea remains the same. In particular, they tend to have a high focus on quality and purity, with considerable marketing to that effect. But, the products themselves are expensive and there is little evidence that they are any better than what’s already on the market.
And honestly, there are countless other companies that offer similar types of products, with the same emphasis on quality. These might not be from a remote Fijian island – but that doesn’t stop them from increasing the competition dramatically.
Nevertheless, the price and competition don't make Wakaya Perfection products unsellable. Instead, some people will still be interested in them and will like the way that they seem luxurious. The high price point also means that, in theory, there is more chance to make a decent profit. After all, you do earn a percentage of the price when you make sales.
There is also a second component of Wakaya Perfection, which is the BulaFIT program. Once again, this is about health in general. But, in this case, the emphasis is primarily on weight loss.
The marketing for BulaFIT is fairly typical. This includes a general disclaimer that weight loss is an individual process and that no results should be considered typical. That disclaimer is then immediately followed by testimonials of people who have lost weight.
Of course, testimonials only tell part of the story, especially as the people in question are mostly distributors. But, weight loss does make people passionate. So, if you lost weight through the program, it’s easy to see how you could promote it to others as well.
The underlying idea here is basically a keto diet. As such, BulaFIT includes guides about how to get into ketosis and stay there, along with information about what you can and cannot eat.
Ketosis itself is debatable. There are many strong advocates of the idea and just as many people who find it concerning. But regardless, in the short-term at least, keto diets do work for weight loss. The choice of food can also make this approach easier than a regular diet, for some people.
Nevertheless, a keto diet is heavily restrictive and involves cutting down or out many common foods, including pasta and bread. That restrictive nature makes keto unappealing for some individuals and can make it difficult to follow as well. The end result is that the idea will work well for some people and be a horrible choice for others. That’s not the best situation for an approach you’re trying to sell.
Regardless of your views on ketosis – it is a common enough weight loss approach. In fact, you can find guides and recipes on countless different food blogs, many of which are dedicated to the eating approach.
What makes BulaFIT different is the heavy reliance on products. For example, their plan focuses on supplements, specific filters designed to promote hydration, meal replacement shakes and various products to help ‘recovery’, such as relief cream and turmeric capsules.
The end result is a product-heavy approach to weight loss, one that doesn’t actually offer any unique advantages. What’s more, all of those products are expensive. So, it could easily cost people hundreds of dollars a month to follow BulaFIT, with no guarantees that they will see any results at all.
Still, for any weight loss approach, there are always some people who find success. And, BulaFIT does rely on an underlying approach (ketosis) that can promote weight loss. Even with the costs and limitations, it’s likely that some people would still be interested and may lose weight with the program.
BulaFIT And Sales
Purely from a sales perspective, BulaFIT is interesting. Weight loss is an area that many people struggle with, which is a key reason why fad diets become popular. People are looking for the next amazing solution and they’re often willing to suspend logic in the process.
For that reason alone, it may well be possible to sell BulaFIT and the related products, especially in the short-term. That’s even more significant if you’re able to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight by following the diet yourself.
The very nature of the approach also creates loyal customers. After all, there is strong pressure on people to buy the products every month in order to lose weight. The idea can also create dependency, with people being convinced that the products are absolutely essential for weight loss.
This means that if you can get people interested and successful, creating long-term customers would be possible. Likewise, recruiting them into the company would also be a realistic approach – especially as the process could save them money.
Personally though, I recommend being wary. Even without expensive products, keto is challenging for many people. This means that many you promote it to won’t see results and won’t be able to stick with the idea in the long-term. To make matters worse, Wakaya Perfection is a direct sales company, so you’re primarily promoting to people you know personally. It’s easy to see how this could cost you friendships, especially if people try the approach and it doesn’t work for them.
This is a key reason why I prefer selling products online. By doing so, you have access to a wider audience and you can promote ideas that actually work. For example, you could focus on cooking affiliate programs and teach people ways to cook and eat healthy food.
Is Wakaya Perfection A Good Business Opportunity?
The products that Wakaya Perfection offers may be overpriced and not particularly unusual but you could still make money selling them. Nevertheless, we still need to consider the compensation plan – as this plays a key role in how much you can potentially earn.
Wakaya Perfection claims that it offers 14 different ways to earn money, which fall into three categories:
- Up-front income
- Perpetual ongoing income
- Luxury and lifestyle perks and bonuses
Despite the phrasing, the idea is roughly the same as other companies. So, the up-front income is the commission that you earn from individual sales. The ongoing income is the commissions you earn from the sales of team members, while the perks and bonuses should be self-explanatory.
So basically, the pattern is exactly the same as most other MLMs out there. For that matter, the idea of ‘14 different ways to earn’ is misleading too. Instead, there are only those three approaches. The total of 14 simply comes from counting the various bonuses individually.
With this in mind, there are two ways you can make money with Wakaya Perfection. The first is simply selling the products. Here, you earn between 10% and 20% commission.
The commission rate here is lower than many other MLMs, especially if you mostly earned at the 10% rate. Nevertheless, the products on offer are fairly expensive, so this could help with your income potential.
In theory, you could make significant income from product sales alone. But, most people fail to do so in practice. One issue is that you’re mostly targeting a warm market, which involves people that you actually know. This is a fairly limited audience and only some of them would be interested in the products.
At the same time, the compensation plan is designed to promote recruitment. As a result, most of the income potential comes from getting other people to join and building a team. When you do so, you start to make income from the sales that your team members make. These bonuses become larger as you progress through the company. Likewise, who you can earn from increases as well.
In practice, this ends up looking roughly like a pyramid, as you’re recruiting people, who recruit others and so on. You then earn from different levels of that pyramid. For example, an ‘active’ member can earn 10% from the sales of people they recruit and 10% from the next generation down.
In total, there are 10 different ranks to move through, going from Ambassador to Black Diamond. Each progressive rank earns more income from their team and has access to a larger range of bonuses. But, each rank also has extra requirements, which relate to sales and team structure.
For example, the requirements below are for the earliest six ranks. The remaining ranks have the most income potential and their requirements are even higher. The highest rank even requires 1,500,000 in group volume, which is $1.5 million in sales across your team, per month.
The basic principle is that your success is directly related to your team. So, the larger and more profitable your team is, the more money you will make. Doing this means progressing up the ranks and meeting those requirements along the way.
Some people do find success. The various bonuses also mean that if you can get far enough, the potential for income is high. Still, it’s critical to be realistic. It is difficult to find success with this model, especially as you have to heavily rely on other people. You and your team are also still selling primarily to friends, family and acquaintances, which does limit your audience.
If nothing else, consider whether the product selection is a good fit for the people you know. For example, how much are people interested in their health? How many of them need to lose weight? Would they be interested in the idea of a ketosis diet?
I can easily imagine that some people would be passionate about the products sold through Wakaya Perfection. If you had that type of audience, your potential for income would be higher. On the other hand, if the people you know are already healthy or are opposed to the idea of ketosis, many of the products from Wakaya Perfection just wouldn’t be relevant.
Earning an income with Wakaya Perfection is possible but doing so sustainably would be difficult. This means you should carefully weigh up your options and the audience that you would be promoting to.
Whatever type of product you decide to promote, it's VITAL that you generate leads to grow your business.
But let's face it, "parties" are boring, and no one likes the annoying Facebook friend who's always promoting a biz-op.
That's why I use this lead generation system. Learn how to generate leads outside of your circle of friends and family and discover what it means to truly own your own business, rather than just be a cheerleader for one network marketing company.
