Amare Global can generally be considered as a health and wellness MLM, one of many in the field. However, to stop there would be a gross oversimplification. Amare Global differs from other health companies due to their strong focus on mental health.
The mental health angle is so strong that Amare Global refers to itself as The Mental Wellness Company. Amare Global also takes pains to highlight the science behind their claims, while educating both clients and distributors about mental health.
This area of focus is an interesting one. Mental health has been dominating the headlines in recent years, yet it remains an area that many people know little about.
Amare Global manages to make the topic more accessible and less scary by using the same type of language that companies rely on for other health topics. The emphasis on mental wellness rather than mental illness also means that the products that Amare Global sells are relevant to anyone.
The mental health angle is also important for sales. There aren’t many other MLMs offering mental health products and I don’t know of any others that focus on the area exclusively. This makes Amare Global appear unique, which should be powerful for sales and recruitment.
Two Ways To Make Money With Amare Global
While the mental health focus is unusual, Amare Global follows the same general income approaches that you’ll find with every MLM. The first is that you can make money by selling the products. You can move beyond this by building a team as well.
This post takes a detailed look at Amare Global from the money-making perspective. In it, I consider the products, the compensation plan, rules and restrictions, along with whether Amare Global is realistic as a source of income.
Amare Global offers a combination of products that are designed to promote mental wellness. This includes a flagship pack that costs $134.95 for three products. The pack is designed to target the gut-brain axis and promote mental wellness that way.
The pack has been researched too and Amare Global heavily promotes the outcomes of their study. I’ll come back to the topic in a little bit, but it’s worth mentioning that the link between gut bacteria and mental health does have scientific backing. It is also a rapidly expanding field of scientific research.
Even so, the provided scientific proof needs to be taken with a grain of salt. The data comes from a single study that only followed participants for 30 days. 30 days isn’t enough time to see the effects of a supplement on health, especially not for mental health.
The study is also directly associated with Amare Global, so the potential for bias is high.
The products in the Amare FundaMentals pack are mostly supplements, which is the same for most other items that the company sells. These use some common ingredients and other more obscure ones. For example, product Relief+ is designed to balance inflammation and includes turmeric as one of the main ingredients.
At the end of the day, the products from Amare Global aren’t that different than other high-end supplements on the market. This isn’t too surprising really, as improving overall health is an important part of promoting mental wellness.
You’ll also find products that improve gut health from many different companies. Gut health has been a trending topic in recent years, so this isn’t a surprise. The biggest difference is simply the marketing that the Amare Global uses.
Will the products make a difference in health? Maybe. Maybe not. As with most supplements, some people may see benefits and others may not.
The marketing approach from Amare Global should help to promote sales. Still, you are promoting expensive supplements that aren’t guaranteed to help people.
Regardless of how well the products work, some people simply won’t have the finances to spend close to $50 (if not more) on a single bottle of supplements.
The Science Focus
Science tends to be used as a marketing tool for MLMs, but I do like how Amare Global focuses on this idea. The company’s website also talks at length about their focus on quality and on ensuring that their products meet the needs of customers. This aspect includes having a Mental Wellness Advisory Board and a Scientific Advisory Board.
A related feature is that the Amare Global site heavily focuses on the products and the science behind them, without talking much about the opportunity. The opportunity information is still there, of course, but it isn’t promoted in the same heavy-handed manner that many MLMs take.
This overall trend should make Amare Global easier to promote than most other health MLMs. You have clear points of difference that you can highlight, along with good marketing angles from the company.
The ideas that Amare Global highlights are also popular within the mental wellness field. This includes the idea of holistic health, science, and ‘ancient wisdom’.
Finally, the scientific focus on gut health is a valid one. While there is still much to be learned, scientific research has highlighted a connection between gut health and mental health. It’s easy to imagine that improving gut health would help to boost mental wellness as well.
The Income Process
It costs $69.95 to join Amare Global as a Wellness Partner. You earn by purchasing the products at retail price and then selling them to customers. The amount you make is based on the final price that you sell the products for.
Amare Global provides suggested retail prices, which are roughly 25% more than the wholesale price. This means you’re making a 25% commission on sales. If you sell the products for lower than that for any reason, your commission will be less.
25% commission isn’t a horrible figure for network marketing, but it is on the low side for a buying and reselling model. After all, you’re taking all the risk. You need to purchase the products first and then try to make your money back.
Doing so involves trying to work out what people are going to want to buy. That’s no fun at the best of times. It’s even worse when the products in question are expensive, like the ones from Amare Global.
If you don’t make the sales you hope to, you’re left out of pocket with excess product, while Amare Global still gets paid. This type of design sucks for anyone hoping to make money.
Even without team building, you can earn beyond the basic commission rate. Amare Global offers volume-based bonuses based on your sales. These range from 0% to 15%, but you need to hit 500 Personal Volume in a month to even get the first increase.
As you can probably guess, your income potential is higher if you can recruit other people into the company. Amare Global provides various bonuses, but the main way to earn from your team is a unilevel compensation plan.
With a unilevel plan, your team is placed based on who recruited who. Someone you recruit directly would go under you in the structure (Level 1). Someone that they recruited would go under them, making the new recruit Level 2 in your team.
You then earn percentage commissions based on where people fall in your team and your overall rank. For example, the first rank in Amare Global is 1 Heart. At this rank, you earn 5% from your direct recruits and that’s it.
The next rank is 2 Heart, where you earn 5% from Level 1 and 4% from Level 2. The pattern continues until you’re earning from up to Level 7 in your downline. There are more ranks than the image below shows, with later ranks offering even more potential for bonuses.
Of course, there is a large difference between how much you could earn and the amount that you actually will. For one thing, you need to progress up those ranks to make a decent income.
Doing so is no easy feat, as the requirements increase as you go along. The first rank requires 300 volume across your whole organization (your team and yourself), while the next one requires 750, followed by 1,000. It isn’t clear how volume is calculated, but it probably relates to the dollar value of products.
The bonuses also depend on the depth of your team. Can you realistically develop a team that even gets to Level 4 or Level 5? Doing so means that multiple generations of team members need to be effective at recruiting. They also need to be targeting different audiences or you will all run out of candidates for recruitment.
One final note is that you need 100 PV in purchases or sales every month just to stay active. This requirement is likely to only be relevant if you’re trying to earn from a team, but it’s still frustrating.
While most MLMs have some type of ongoing sales requirement, monthly requirements are particularly rough. Life is often unpredictable and you will probably experience some months where it’s difficult to make sales.
Months like this can put a serious dent in your income, as you won’t get any bonuses from your team. The simplest solution is just to buy 100 PV of products and sell them later, but this pattern can get you in debt if you’re not careful.
