So you are researching Nikken, Inc. to determine if it is a viable business opportunity for you. Is it a legitimate business or is it just a scam? I will provide you an overview of the Nikken business opportunity and hopefully help you to come to a conclusion.
Nikken, Inc is a multilevel marketing company (MLM) headquartered in Irvine, California. They began in Japan in 1975 by selling a product they call “Magsteps” which are uniquely designed magnetic insoles. The purpose of the insoles is to promote relaxation through the pressure points on the feet. The use of magnetics for health purposes is very common in Japan and the company began to grow. In 1979 they introduced a magnetic sleep pad and then in 1989, they opened in North America where they experienced tremendous growth throughout the early and mid 1990′s. During that time period the product line expanded further into magnetized water, air filtration, and other alternative health related items.
Countless users of the Nikken products will tell of their phenomenal results and benefits they have experienced. It seems that results will vary from person to person but this is true with an health related product. The magnetic strength of the Nikken product line seems to be low enough as to not cause any detrimental side effects although the company will make the general liability warning not to use the magnets if you are in your first trimester of pregnancy or if you have a cardiac pacemaker. In my own personal research, I have been unable to find any claims of injury by someone using the Nikken product line and, overall, the users appear to be satisfied customers.
The Nikken business is based on the principle of using the product line and then recruiting others who will also purchase and promote the products. Our Nikken business review supports the fact that success relies heavily on your ability to sell and recruit (also referred to as”sponsor”). As a consultant, the Nikken compensation plan allows you to buy products at a reduced price and then earn a 5-20% commission from the sales generated from your downline. The term “downline” refers to anyone that you recruit plus anyone that is recruited into your organization. The Nikken pay plan also incorporates different levels which can be achieved by a combination of sponsoring new consultants and then helping them to sponsor new consultants. Although proponents of this type of marketing will point out that it encourages teamwork, it can also be extremely challenging.
There are Nikken distributors earning 5 and 6 figure monthly incomes and there are some great incentives such as a car and home bonus which makes this form of marketing very attractive. However, as with every other MLM company, you will also be encouraged to make a list of everyone you know and then go out and talk to them about the Nikken business opportunity. If this type of sales appeals to you, then a Nikken business is probably a viable option and it is not a scam at all. It truly is a legitimate business opportunity.
The question you must ask yourself before joining the Nikken business or any MLM company is “Do I want to go out and try to recruit all of my friends, family, and neighbors?” If the answer is no, then you will want to learn how to market the opportunity online. Although the Nikken compensation plan is fair, it will still require you to have a downline of approximately 200-300 people or more in order to generate a consistent paycheck in the range of $2500-5000 per month. This is fairly typical for the industry. Doing this will dictate that you have the ability to introduce your opportunity to a large number of people. Unless, you have this size of database already, you will need to learn how to create it.
If you do make the decision to build a Nikken business or any other MLM, then I highly suggest that you have an effective system in place to help you generate qualified leads when your “warm market” dries up. Even if you do not need it, your downline usually will!
