An SU student's time with Vemma
I decided to join Vemma in the fall semester of last year because it seemed like an easy way to make money.
The students who approached me about selling the products were extremely energetic and seemed to be successful.
Vemma is a marketing company that sells nutritional drinks that are supposedly the “healthiest” drinks on the market.
Many people believe that Vemma is about selling energy and other nutritional drinks.
That is not the case at all.
They want you to recruit others to join the “Vemma Movement” and to get your friends and family to buy starter packs as well.
When you start as a seller for Vemma, the goal is set up two teams, a right and a left.
You hope that both teams make a certain amount of money to continue your business.
That is not always the case though.
How you make money in Vemma is very similar to multi-level marketing.
A lot of people associate the company with pyramid schemes, however, pyramid schemes are illegal in the United States.
Not that that legality has stopped anyone before.
I felt my time with Vemma was not amazing like promised.
It is almost impossible to make money doing it because everyone you talk to believes that it is indeed a scam.
To make matters worse, we are on a college campus and students do not have the extra cash to be shelling out hundreds of dollars.
The upper — level management and executives at this company brainwash America’s youth and make them think that they will become millionaires.
When you’re a part of Vemma you constantly receive phone calls and emails to try and keep you motivated.
I felt that they kept hounding me because they were higher up the pyramid and made money off my work.
Luckily, Vemma had a 30 — day money — back guarantee so I was able to return the product for a full refund.
I would caution people about getting involved with Vemma.
I am not saying that it is impossible to make money, but your odds are slim.
Being cautious is the best way to avoid getting yourself in trouble.
Investing your money can be great.
