This review is going to be about a company called Life Plus. What is Life Plus? Is it a scam or legitimate opportunity? Is it worth to invest your time, money and effort into this or who is it really for? These are some of the questions that we will be focusing on in this review.
Ok. Without further ado, let’s get things started…
Name: Life Plus International
Owner: J. Robert (Bob) Lemon
Who is it for: People who wants to do Network Marketing/MLM
Life Plus Company Overview
Before I go on, I just wanted that I am not in any way, shape or form affiliated with Life Plus and thus, you can expect a totally unbiased review from me in regards to Life Plus products and more particularly, Life Plus business program.
Life Plus International develops nutritional supplements. It was founded in 1992 by J. Robert (Bob) Lemon. He is also currently the president of the company. Prior to Life Plus, J. Robert was a pharmacist in his professional career. He definitely has good knowledge and experience on nutrition under his belt which is probably the main reason why Life Plus is still seeing success and is around for so many years.
The age of the company is 24 years old(what a coincidence, I’m 24 this year too!). For a company to be around for a quite a long time, they definitely must be doing something right in terms of both their products and their business program. Each of them have equal importance, they can’t do with each other.
For instance, if you have bad products and good business program, you will not succeed simply because you can’t market your products. Since products from companies like this are slightly overpriced, you need to have a good selling point in order to succeed. If your product is no different from the ones you can get off the shelves, you are not going to get many customers.
Again, if you have a good product and bad business program, you are still not going to succeed because you are not reaching out to many people. Without good marketing, even the best products will not sell and hence, the company will not make any profits.
So… now you see how important is it to have both good products and solid business program.
Opps, I guess I got too carried away. I forget to mention that there is another important person for the success of this company. His name is Dr. Dwight McKee. Dwight McKee has a strong medical and nutritional background behind him and till today, he is the primary formulator of their products.
It’s good to see that Life Plus openly mentioned about who owns and runs the company because it helps increase credibility in both potential customers and business partners.
So far everything about their company looks solid… in awhile we will look at their products and business program to see how it fairs.
Who is Life Plus for?
I think before we start looking at their products and business program, it is necessary that we look at who is this program really for. Because this will definitely save you a lot of time going forward.
Just to clear any confusions, my focus of this review is not about the products but more on the business side.
So who is Life Plus suitable for?
It’s for people who wants to get involved in Network Marketing or multi-level marketing.
Before you jump with both you feet in, you should actually know what you are landing yourself into…
In order to make money with this business program, you are going to have to do two things without fail.
- Sell products
- Recruit members on your team
Basically, selling products means buying at wholesale price and selling them at a retail price. The differences between the prices are yours to keep as commissions. I think without having to even think, you would have realized that you can’t make good money by solely relying on retail commissions.
Yes, that’s true. The profit margin is very little and besides, you will have to make a good number of sales before you see some decent commission.
The only way to succeed in this is to do both simultaneously. Sell products and recruit members under your downline. This is the hard part, to persuade someone to join your team and start their own business. I have to tell you, it is not an easy task to do is.
The main reason why over 90% of them failed or dropped out in any MLM type business is because they found it difficult to recruit members. The majority of this people don’t have knowledge or experience in marketing and most importantly a business plan.
You need to understand that this is a BUSINESS! If you don’t think, work and act like a business person, you are very likely going to fail. You need to build contacts and relationship with strangers if you are going to succeed. What most people do is this. Immediately target their relatives and friends and ask them to buy their products and join their team.
This is only a short term solution. How many people do you know? Millions? Billions? Obviously not… so there will come a point of time where you will start scratching your head thinking what to do next after marketing with all the people you know. Those that get stuck here are very likely going to drop out because they are lost on ideas of what to do next.
Many people fail to understand this when getting involved first time. So now, I highly encourage you to ask yourself this question. Are you willing to step out of your comfort zone, meet new people and put in lots of effort? If you answered YES, then you might want to try this out. For those of you who answered NO or not sure, I personally think that you avoid this business opportunity because with that mindset and attitude you are very likely to fail from the get go.
A couple of years ago, I was involved with Herbalife. I did the very same mistakes what newbie marketers do. Market it to the people we know. Once I run out of idea and people to go to, it was then I realized this opportunity is not as easy as I thought it to be. I ended up going on a lost because I consumed most of my products. Luckily, I didn’t buy a huge stock.

Life Plus Compensation Plan
Well, I was looking a video to explain their compensation plan. Unfortunately, I couldn’t even find one proper video that well explains it. It made me wonder, how come they are in this business for so many years and still not have a single video to simplify the understanding of the process.
If you are looking for a detail explanation of their compensation plan, you can check out this pdf here.
Anyway, I will just give a quick overview of their compensation plan…

You will earn referral commissions up to three levels.

Summary Of Pros Vs Cons
- There is definitely some potential to make money with this business program. But all pours down to yourself, whether are you willing to take actions or not.
- Life Plus has been around for around 24 years. They have a good foundation and have built and a strong reputation among their customers and business partners.
- Decent compensation plan. Also fairly easy to understand.
- They have a huge variety of products to promote.
- Not too costly to get started
- Provided good amount of details on their website including individual product specifications.
- Never list the price for each individual product
- This opportunity is not suitable for everybody. Though it may seem very easy, just sell and recruit people. However, it isn’t that simple.
- Very tough competition in this niche. In other words, there are thousands of MLM companies selling similar kind of health and nutrition products.
My Final thoughts.
So is Life Plus a scam?
Nope, definitely not…
It’s a legitimate company that has been around for a very long time. From what I have researched, there isn’t any complaint filed against this company. According to BBB Accredited Business, Life Plus International got the best rating of A+.
However, before you want to get involved in this opportunity, you need to understand that this is a business. In the initial stages, you really have to step outside of your comfort zone and work your ass off in order to really see somewhat success in this.
If you are looking to supplement just some extra income, then you probably wouldn’t need that much effort. But if you want to make this a full-time income, you have to work really hard.
Verdict: Legit, But Not Recommended
For those of you who are still keeping your options opened and not yet committed with Life Plus, I do have an opportunity that may actually interest you. I have been doing that for just over a year and have seen great success with it.
Basically, it’s called Affiliate Marketing. All you do is promote someone else’s products/services and earn commissions from it. All you need is a computer and internet connect and the best part is you don’t have to move around to recruit people, you can work from the comfort of your own home.
