This review is going to be about a company called JM Ocean Avenue. What is JM Ocean Avenue? Is it a scam or legit opportunity? Is it worth to invest your time and money into this or who is it really for? These are some of the questions that this review will be focused on.
Alright, without further ado, let’s move on to the review itself.
Name: JM Ocean Avenue
Owner: Joe Zhou
Who is this for: People interested in MLM type opportunities
JM Ocean Avenue Company Overview
Before I head on to the actual review, I just wanted to mention that I am not in any way, shape or form affiliated with JM Ocean Avenue and thus, you can expect a totally unbiased review from me with regards to JM Ocean Avenue products and more importantly, JM Ocean Avenue business program.
JM Ocean Avenue isn’t a standalone company by itself. Two totally different direct sales companies, Ocean Avenue, and JM International merged in June 2014 and is now called JM Ocean Avenue. According to their website, the reason for this merger is to create more opportunities for both distributors and customers through expanding into 25 new markets and six continents.
Obviously there can’t be two different individuals in the same post, hence, after the merger, there have been lots of shuffling in the management. As of now, Joe Zhou(Founder of JM International in 2009) is the head of the company, holding the chairman post.
It is great to see that JM Ocean Avenue is quite open about who owns and runs the company. This definitely builds trust in terms of both the customers and potential distributors perspective. I have come across several MLM companies that choose to remain anonymous in every aspect which kinda disappoints me and everyone else trying to get involved with them. The only reason I could think of when a company fails to disclose any information is because they are up to something no good and they probably don’t want anybody to trace back to them in the near future.
I would recommend that you stay away from such companies if you ever come across one.
So far everything about the company and management seems good.
Who is JM Ocean Avenue for?
Basically, it’s for anyone looking to start a home based business or simply trying to supplement themselves an extra monthly income, either way, this opportunity might be suitable for you.
However, having said that, it doesn’t mean that this opportunity is the right one for YOU. For the next couple of minutes, I suggest that you read the following thoroughly and understand how network marketing(or MLM) works before you eventually decide to jump with both you feet in.
According to JM Ocean Avenue, as a distributor, you have 9 different ways to earn with them. One of them is through retail profits meaning direct sales. You buy the product at wholesale price and sell it at retail price. The difference between them is yours to keep. The other 8 ways are all related to recruiting and building a team. That’s right, so if you don’t put in the effort and recruit members, you are not going to make much money because you are losing out on 8 other money streams.
My point is if you are not a business person this opportunity is definitely NOT FOR YOU. It may seem like a work from home business, but I can assure you that 90% of the time you have to move around and find people because sitting at home will never help you in any way. Most people fail to understand that MLM business model only works for those who have a good marketing plan, strategy and most importantly not hesitant to move around at meet new people.
If you are not able to meet either of the above-mentioned requirements, you are bound to fail. Wait, don’t get me wrong. I’m not trying to scare you or mislead you, and that’s not my job. I have no intentions to do that. I’m just stating the fact. Most people that get involved with this sort of business opportunity assume that you can make a good income by simply promoting to your family and friends.
WRONG! BIG NO!
Promoting to people you know isn’t called a business. Just think about it, how many people you know can you promote to. This will eventually come to an end, and you will start to realize, “what am I going to do next?”. Eventually, you will have to promote to people you never have seen before. Direct sales are only a small problem. Persuading people to join your team and promote is a bigger problem.
So think about it, do you think you have can overcome all these? If you think you can, then go ahead. If you are not sure or don’t think you could do it, then please don’t waste your time, money and effort here.
JM Ocean Avenue Products
Initially, I thought that JM Ocean Avenue only sells those nutritional type of products only, but I was wrong. They actually sell a wide variety of products. Maybe this is why they mentioned that the merger opened them 25 different markets.
For every MLM type company, the foundation is always the same. You need a very good product to market to people. If the product is going to be average that you could buy off the shelves or stores, it is going to be very difficult to sell the product because people rather buy a cheaper product that does the same functions then buy an expensive product.
So now… let’s take a look at some of the products listed on their website.

- WAVBEYOND – Whey Protein Drink Mix
- WAVFOCUS – Energy Booster

JM Ocean Avenue Compensation Plan
Like every MLM company out there, JM Ocean Avenue too has a compensation plan which helps you craft out how to get started and what requirements must you meet to reach a particular rank and earn income.
To get started with JM Ocean Avenue is very simple, you will have to register and select one of the four packages. The four packages are silver, gold, platinum and diamond.
- Silver Package – 50 PV
- Gold Package – 300 PV
- Platinum Package – 600 PV
- Diamond Package – 900 PV
These four package options will determine the level of your members and also will determine the bonus you will receive. You can upgrade to any packages at any point in time. Let’s say you started with Silver, then you want to upgrade to Diamond. Yes, it is possible, all you need to do is pay the specific amount of money.
The compensation plan is too long and kinda confusing so there’s no point for me to list each and every one of them here because you will eventually still need to double confirm for yourself.
Here is the link to the compensation plan of JM Ocean Avenue :
I also found a good video that explains everything about the recently updated compensation plan. This video was made by one of their ambassadors.
Summary of Pros Vs Cons
- The company is definitely legit
- There is potential to make money through this business program
- Strong Compensation Plan
- Have a good variety of Products to promote
- I feel that their website is lacking on certain information
- Didn’t include prices for the products
- Didn’t explain how much does it cost to get start with the business program
- Simply because is MLM. Only a very small fraction of people really sees success in this
- You need to step out of your comfort zone and meet new people to buy your product and also have to recruit members to your team. The majority of your earning will greatly depend on how successful you have recruited members under you.
My Final Thoughts
So is JM Ocean Avenue a Scam?
Nope, definitely Not…
However, some people will disagree, more particularly those who got involved with their business program and dropped out. Honestly, this company is not a scam, people are really making a good income with it but NOT everybody. Only a handful of people is doing well probably because of their business background, ability to cope and build a relationship and maybe even simple because of the drive to succeed.
Some of you might be wondering, what do I mean by building relationships. You have to know that, this is a BUSINESS. You would never have heard of any type of business who succeeded all on its own. In one way or another, they got support and help from someone else. Similarly, MLM business requires you to build relationships with different customers and members. You can’t do this alone.
If you are thinking about doing alone and not relying on anyone, all I can say is… Don’t get involved in this business program. Just because someone else made good money doesn’t mean you or the next person behind you will see similar success.
You really need to work your A** off if you want to succeed in this.
Anyway, the ultimate decision is totally up to you to make. But do keep in mind what you are getting yourself into…
Verdict: Legit, but Not Recommended
A better Suggestion?
If you are still keeping your options open then that’s great. I got a good opportunity to share with you.
- Doesn’t require you to spend a huge amount of money upfront
- Don’t have to worry about customer support
- Don’t have to move around and recruit people
- Don’t have to find space to store your products
- Don’t have to physically talk to anybody
- And much more…
So what’s this all about?
It’s called Affiliate Marketing…
Basically, you promote someone else’s products/services and earn one-time or re-occurring commissions. I have been doing this for just over a year now and have seen good success in this.

Keep in mind, whatever work from home business you seek, everything requires you to put in the effort and most importantly give yourself enough time. You can’t expect to see profits within a day or a week. Just like any brick and mortar business it takes time before you see good money out of it.
