Default Is Soylicious a Scam?

I came across this nice little article today

Soylicious Review - Can Soylicious Live Up To The Hype? Is It A Scam? by Sonam Lama
in Home Business (submitted 2009-08-25)

Soylicious is a very young company that recently launched their company. They are a direct marketing company that pays percentage of sales and bonuses as commissions. In this Soylicious review I will explain whether it is a Total scam or a legitimate profitable business opportunity.

Soylicious describes itself as an Eco friendly company that manufactures and sells soybean wax candles made from renewable resources and recyclable glass container holders.

They even boast that their premium soy bean wax candles and tart chunks are made from two types of American grown soybeans, with natural botanical oils added to give them vibrant colors and a creamy texture. In addition to their soybeans they emphasize their soy soap, room sprays, and electric tart melters that are they claim will satisfy your senses.

Some of their candles are:

•Balsa Wood Candle
•Flower Pot Votive
•Spa Candle

The purpose of the creation of Soylicious was developed to provide stay at home moms and dads a way to build a business for a small investment. They have assembled a team of experts to help you build your business, but want to ensure affiliates that it is not a get rich quick scheme.

As an affiliate you are provided with your very own SoyLicious.com website from where you may recruit affiliates and conduct online orders, recieving a 40% commission each time. In fact, you earn double points commission on the monthly auto-ship of the recruits on your team. In addition to your own website you will have access to the affiliate back office where you will be able to track your team growth and sales.

Unlike many other MLM companies, they have established an online community that they host where you can interact, connect, and share ideas and concerns with your other fellow affiliates. This community or "affiliate board" will serve as the meeting place for conferences, training, and any other posts.

Their affiliate program, unlike network marketing, will provide you with a unique link in the form of a URL banner. Of course with this banner you are free to post on any website, as it will track all orders that come through your Banner.


The cost is $29.95 per month plus shipping, and there are no monthly minimums or quota's to meet. All you have to do is pay your monthly membership and you'll receive $45.00 worth of candles each month. But if you want to Auto ship your candles you could select to receive the Auto Ship of Candles for your first month membership, or if you also have the choice to select the "Fast Track" for your first months shipment. From then on future shipment will be $29.95 + s&h Candles of the Month of Auto Ship.

So what is the Compensation Plan?

Interestingly enough, Soylicious has a profitable compensation plan for their affiliates. There are five different income streams for which affiliates can make money from. Here they are:

1.Home-Events: You receive a 40% discount on all purchases and Hostess receives free products and discounts.

2.Retail Sales: Direct sales to friends, family, and coworkers.

3.Web site sales: You will have your own SoyLicious.com web site from which your customers may place orders and you will receive a 40% commission on all sales.

4.Fundraisers: Party, dinners, and much more.

5.Residual Income: You will earn a residual income, as you recruit affiliates and build your team, on their monthly membership fees and on any website sales or home events they conduct.

So is this a Scam or Not?

Since this company has just started it is unfair for me to make an assumption. But, so far from what I have discovered from their success and heard from other customers of Soylicious I can say that they have a solidified business plan and a world of potential. They have a unique product in their vibrant colored and creamy textured candles. Also, they have experienced and successful leaders in Steve Gray, Nadine Johnson, and Mary Reid. Quite frankly, without the right LEADERS, who possess the expertise and knowledge to influence and inspire you to understand how to optimize the power of your chosen product then you would fail so quickly you would not know what hit you. Therefore, I can honestly claim that Soylcious is NOT a scam.

Most Importantly, however, no matter what product your selling, the MAIN key to YOUR Success will not be promoting Soylicious, it will be your level of effectiveness and passion in MARKETING your business or product. Soylicious is only your MEANS which will allow you to access your Financial Freedom. But it will ONLY be Your Means...Your true Power and Force that will accelerate you into your TRUE Financial Freedom rests in your Knowledge and skill sets in Marketing. Become a Master at Marketing and your success with Soylicious or any other company will literally be at your finger tips.

At least they did take the time to get the facts right.

You know they just write articles like this to get exposure for their own business so maybe you will click on their link & see what they do

Yes, there are some videos on You Tube already also - probably the same video with every MLM, they just interchange the name of the company... Hey, at least they are helping get the name out there a little more, right

I do have to say they got the info wrong about what you have to pay every month. It is $4.99. AND, you do not HAVE to buy anything. It does help, if you want to show off products or promote your business. I have been with them almost a month now, and I have heard some really good things.

That post is from back in 2009 so some of the info is outdated but it still rings true that Soylicious.com is not a scam and one of the lowest-cost opportunities out there that I have found without sacrificing quality of product.
