Alliance in Motion Review: Can You Really Make Money with Them?

Alliance in Motion is a known name when it comes to health MLMs that are making big waves in the industry.

They are a food supplement distributor and are the self-proclaimed number one direct sales MLM company in the world right now.

They certainly have big dreams, and you can’t fault them for that. However, I decided to uncover the mysteries of this MLM, and will unravel all their secrets in this review. The big question on the minds of everyone is, can you really make money with Alliance in Motion?

You will find out about that by the end, so let’s get started.

Overview

Dr. Eduardo Cabantog, John Asperin, and Francis Miguel are the brains behind Alliance in Motion Global, which was launched in September, 2005.

They sell soaps, toothpaste, nutritional pills, coffee and drinks, supplements and other things. They are also targeting more than just the western market, as their websites lists Ghana, UAE, Hawaii, Kuwait, Taiwan, Singapore, Brunei, Nigeria, and Philippines as well. They are also a part of the MLMIA – The Association for Network Marketing – Worldwide.

That is certainly different from the rest, but things start to get a bit complicated as you dive deeper into the MLM.

They use the traditional MLM products consisting of powders and pills, but there is an alarming lack of any sort of scientific backup for their products.

Most of their products make big claims with nothing substantial backing them.

Products

So what are the products? Well, the product options you will get mainly depend on where you are located. They have different products for separate locations, with multiple websites for each product. Their lineup of products consists of:

  • VIDA Drink Mix
  • Liven Coffee-Sugar Free
  • Liven Coffee-Original
  • Liven Coffee-Latte
  • Liven Coffee-Cappuccino
  • Burn Slim
  • Burn Meal Replacement Shake
  • Burn Mate Iced Tea
  • Burn Liven Coffee
  • Alkaline Chocolate Drink

These drinks offer health benefits, which range from preventing arthritis to detoxification:

  • Restorlyf
  • Kiddi 24/7 Nutragummies
  • Complete Phyto-Energiser
  • Choleduz Omega Supreme
  • C247 Natura-Ceuticals

This is the lineup of powders and pills that help in slowing down the aging process, protecting the DNA, and promoting immunity in children.

The good thing is that there is some certification here, which is good. The US Food and Drug Administration, Bureau of Food and Drugs (BFAD), Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), NAFDAC, Frost & Sullivan Product Quality, Kosher, and HALAL, are all backing the range of products.

However, there is a message on the box that states ‘No Approved Therapeutic Claims’.

This is a spray that the antioxidant glutathione, which whitens skin safely, effectively, and is anti-aging and will enhance oral hygiene.

This supplement has the nonessential amino acid L-Cysteine Peptide, which is nearly 3 to 5 times stronger than its sister product, White Light.

The target market over here isn’t the United States, and it is mainly targeted towards the Asian countries, where people are looking for skin whitening products:

  • Naturacentials Feminine Wash
  • Naturacentials Masculine Wash
  • Naturacentials Soap
  • Naturacentials Toothpaste

This is the best category for me, since the toothpaste claims to stop plaque formation and oral bacteria, while it also promotes fresh breath and is a natural antiseptic.

The washes on the other hand are great for cleaning, but also have anti-aging properties as well. Strangely the soap makes all kinds of claims for eradicating problems like seizures and hemorrhaging.

Compensation Plan

You can easily purchase one of the global packages and start as a distributor, but the main problem is that there isn’t any price labeled on the products, and they only have values attached to them. The products have to be bought in packages, and aren’t sold individually, which means you will have to market the entire package.

This throws up the problem of being stuck with a product that has no demand. The compensation is a unique blend of stair step, uni-level, and binary plans. You can start making money through:

You can go the old fashioned way with retail sales, by purchasing product packages at 25% lifetime discounts, and then selling them at higher prices.

Every new person that the distributor sponsors will earn money and product points.

This is the binary system, where distributors are divided into two groups under their account, and includes different levels. Every level has different points attached to them, where the distributor will be able to earn a matched sales bonus.

The company is also able to penalize distributors for only recruiting and not selling products.

Distributors can also take advantage of this system, as they will earn 5% of their product points. However, they will only be able to earn up till the 10th level.

You can upgrade to become an Executive Distributors, where you will enhance your earning potential.

  • Global Ambassador (GA) 30% commission
  • Gold Executive (GE) 20% commission
  • Silver Executive (SE) 10% commission

When the Global Ambassador’s down lines also reach the GA level, they will receive a royalty bonus of 2% from the group sales volume of everyone down the lines. This is only limited to five down lines.

Recap

In general, when you take a deeper look into Alliance of Motion, the MLM doesn’t look super optimistic. However, they have won quite a lot of awards in the industry, which is always a good sign. This doesn’t take anything away from the fact that some of their products are highly questionable in nature, and they have an excessive focus on down line as well.

The company also has some serious conditions relating to company loyalty, which basically permits you to only work for them. This is limiting your control and freedom a little bit, and will definitely not be liked by everyone in general.
