Default FGXpress Power Strips Worldwide launch

I just became a Rep for FGXpress Power Strips...joined because it's brand new, safe product, to offer help to people.

Does anyone have any reviews on this company yet?
I know there's not many Reps yet but hoping to find someone more familiar with MLM and direct sales that has possibly checked them out.
Should I be concerned about anything before I get too deeply involved? I've searched all over the web for negative comments/reviews but can only find people saying good things.

I met someone recently in the Atlanta area doing this and she gave us a strip to try. My husband hasn't had a chance to try it. This was the first I'd ever heard of it.

Good luck in your new endeavor.

I received a 6 day sample from a Facebook friend and I did not notice any difference while on the strips. I just chalked it up to the fact that I have numerous health issues and pain issues. I was previously on prescription meds so my level and physical need was pretty intense. This is just my experience.

The reps are really nice and actually care about helping you. Not to familiar with the company itself but the product just didn't help me. I'm sure it's like with anything else, results are individual and every body is different.

Laurie,
I tried one strip so far and feel it did give me some results. I want my husband to try a strip too as he has more pain issues than I do. But from what I've read in various places, and what someone else already mentioned, not everyone has immediate success with the strips. It may mean that you would have to use them consistently to have a result though, which it doesn't sound like most people have done.

I've also done research on the company and it seems quite solid. I'm concerned though that there is some hype around the product which will die down eventually. Then the true effectiveness of the product will be seen by the numbers of reps who continue on buying and using the product.

Just my 2 cents!

I participated in a webinar the other day about the strips, from my understanding there is a cummulative effect of pain relief the longer you use them. I have no personal experience though.

I took a look at the comp plan because I have been evaluating them lately. The binary portion is similar to what USANA does, so I'm familiar with that. However, it isn't exactly spelled out, and the only commission amount given on the presentation is for the personally enrolled members at 25%, BUT that is only for their first order.

I am not impressed with this for the following reason, but correct me if my understanding is wrong - You are paid out at 12% commissions of your SMALL TEAM. In other words, if you have someone in your downline that is a rock star on the right side, you don't benefit from that because your left side (smaller team) is the one you're paid from.

I was with this company for a short time. I was very impressed with the parent company Forever Green. Love their mission and values. The strips did help my elbow, however it took about 2 weeks consistently putting a strip on each night while I slept.

What I had a challenge with is the fact that I didn't see myself using $100 worth of strips every single month as they only have the one product you can qualify for commissions with.

I am no longer with this company. Shipping took extremely long and company shipping free samples to people was inconsistent. Unfortunately wasn't something I felt comfortable with as Customer service is so important in my opinion.

Exclamation FGXpress Clarifications

Just wanted to clear up a couple of things that were mentioned earlier in the thread.

First, I don't believe that FGXpress ships samples directly to prospects (to my knowledge anyway). At any rate, many uplines provide a program that ships samples, so if that's the case, it's not the fault of the company. I have also received all of my products within just a few days - quicker than was expected actually.

Secondly, the only product purchase required is one package per month (15 strips), which is $70 + a few bucks for shipping. You can use these either personally or for samples (which can be written off as a business expense).

The company has also introduced a second product to sell, SolarStrips, which is a melt in your mouth whole food strip made with phytoplankton. They are supposed to be integrating the parent company's additional products in gradually.

One other thing - I made a mistake in signing someone up and the company also fixed that the same day! So, I have not had any complaints about the customer service.

I hope this clarifies some of the statements made in earlier posts. If you have any more questions, please PM me!

Thanks, Lori
;-)

I agree - I received about 7 strips as a sample. First try, I could feel a little something but then nothing after that. I think I wanted them to work so badly that I was mentally forcing it. I did use all of the samples my friend sent me just to give it the benefit of the doubt.
