Vasayo are based out of Utah and directed by Dallin and Karree Larsen.
Dallin Larsen first turned up on most people’s radar as Usana’s President of Sales in the 1990s. Larsen held several executive positions in Usana before his visit as President.
In 2001 Larsen was appointed Vice President of Sales at Dynamic Basics. Dynamic Essentials encountered regulative problems with the FDA in 2003, with Larsen leaving the company that very same year.
In 2005 Larsen (right, with Karree) established and introduced Monnavie, which today is what he’s best known for in the MLM industry.
Monnavie marketed a blended acai berry juice and initially was pretty successful within the MLM sphere.
By 2014 things at Monnavie weren’t looking good, triggering Larsen to leave the company.
Rather than shy away from his past, as is often the case, in a Vasayo marketing video Larsen is refreshingly honest about his departure from Monavie.
Two years ago, after it became apparent that we had lost control of the outcome of Monavie for a number of factors, including a significant philosophical disagreement with our personal equity financiers, as to the company’s culture and who must lead the company, we chose to step away in July of 2014 and agreed to avoid of the industry for two years.
We have actually honored that contract. New Vasayo Video:
When we resigned from Monavie we shared a video message specifying that we didn’t know for sure what our future was going to look like.
Now, 2 years later, we have clearness.
That clarity produced the launch of Vasayo.
When it comes to Monavie, it plunged into $182 million dollars in debt and was sold off to Jeunesse. Jeunesse without delay commenced dismantling exactly what was left of Monavie and incorporating it into their own company.
Larsen appears determined not to make the very same mistakes he felt he made with Monavie again;
We have every intention of leading this company until our dying breath. This will be the last journey of our lifetimes.
In addition, we have no intention of every selling this company. We’re not beginning with an exit-strategy in mind but instead, to build and leave a tradition.
And unlike Monavie we will keep more than half ownership in the business, so that we can steer the ship and culture in a direction we believe to be in the best interests of our distributors.
Read on for a full review of the Vasayo MLM opportunity.

The Vasayo Payment Strategy
The Vasayo settlement strategy pays affiliates to offer items to retail customers.
Affiliates are likewise given a thirty-day window to earn off item orders made by brand-new personally hired affiliates.
GV stands for “Group Volume” and is PV created by a Vasayo affiliate’s downline.
An active client is a retail client who has actually ordered a minimum of 35 PV worth of items within 4 weeks.
An active affiliate is a Vasayo affiliate who generates at least 80 PV a month (4 weeks).
Lower binary volume is GV generated by a Vasayo affiliate’s weaker binary side (see recurring commission explanation below).
Vasayo affiliates earn a 20% retail commission on items bought by their retail customers.
The Item Introduction Benefit is a percentage perk on sales volume produced by the hired affiliate’s orders.
What does it cost? of a percentage is paid out is identified by volume produced by the recruiting affiliate for that month:
80 PV a month = 10% Item Introduction Reward
160 PV a month or more = 20% Item Introduction Reward
Recurring commissions in Vasayo are paid via a binary payment structure.
A binary payment structure positions an affiliate at the top of a binary group, divided into two sides (left and right):.
The second level of the binary team is generated as needed, by splitting each of the very first 2 positions into another two positions each.
Subsequent levels of the binary team are generated in the same manner, with each brand-new binary level housing two times as many positions as the previous level.
Positions in the binary group are filled via direct and indirect recruitment of new affiliates.
At the end of weekly sales volume on both sides of the binary group is tallied up. Vasayo pay affiliates a $25 cycle commission per 240/480 GV matched on both sides of the binary group.
Vasayo affiliates who create a minimum of 160 PV a month receive a matching bonus offer on recurring commissions earned by their team.
Vasayo pay the Matching Bonus based upon unilevel generations.
A unilevel settlement structure puts a Vasayo affiliate at the top of a unilevel tea, with every personally recruited affiliate positioned directly under them (level 1):.
If any level 1 affiliates recruit brand-new affiliates, they are put on level 2 of the original affiliate’s unievel team.
If any level 2 affiliates hire brand-new affiliates, they are put on level 3 and so on etc down a theoretical unlimited number of levels.
Generations are specified when a Bronze affiliate is found in each specific unilevel leg.
When a Bronze ranked affiliate is found, the very first generation is capped off and the second generation begins.
If no second Bronze ranked affiliate is discovered, the second generation extends down the whole length of the unilevel leg.
The Matching Bonus offer is paid out as a portion of residual binary commissions paid to downline affiliates in these generations.
How many generations a Vasayo affiliate can earn on is identified by their rank as follows:.
The suitable rank must be maintained in addition to 160 PV in qualifying month-to-month volume.
Ruby ranked Vasayo affiliates who produce 160 PV a month receive shares in the Leadership Reward swimming pool.
The Leadership Bonus offer pool is comprised of 2% of Vasayo’s company-wide sales volume.
The Vasayo compensation plan states that affiliates can.
make shares based on your paid-as rank and additional shares based on additional certifications.
No specific information on the credentials criteria is supplied.
The more a Vasayo affiliate pays for subscription the more items they receive.
There is also a Vasayo “Creators Bundle” for $1495. Apparently there’s a separate 1% reward swimming pool paid to Founders Plan affiliates (I have actually also seen 2% marketed).
From the Vasayo marketing video I priced estimate from in the intro of this evaluation;.
In today’s regulatory environment, the only business that will survive and prosper, will be those business that develop an enormous and loyal consumer base.
Rather than those business that merely concentrate on hiring other distributors.
It is indeed a brand-new day in direct selling and in my view this readies news, okay news.
Broadly speaking Vasayo measures up to Dallin Larsen’s approach, implying it’s not just lip-service to retail sales activity.
Before we get into the settlement plan, I wish to attend to the $1495 Founders Plan. If the package is indeed tied to several bonus offer swimming pools, that’s clearly pay to play and should be prevented.
If Vasayo affiliates wish to pay $1495 to get a much deeper discount rate on items, that’s great however from a regulative standpoint there shouldn’t be any financial incentive for doing so.
Beyond that warning, Vasayo’s compensation strategy is exceptionally well-balanced in between retail sales and developing a down line.
The key to this are the active client requirements, which need retail orders of 35 PV or more per active retail client required.
From the start (Qualified Brand Partner), Vasayo affiliates are needed to keep active clients. This cancels the required PV requirements, with each active consumer creating 35 PV to the requirements.
At each Vasayo affiliate rank the needed retail client PV counts for well over majority of needed monthly PV. That means an affiliate is going to be mainly receiving commissions through retail consumer sales, which is ideally what you desire in an MLM opportunity.
Normally I ‘d raise an eyebrow but attempting to focus exclusively on hiring brand-new affiliates and collecting on their orders isn’t really sustainable in Vasayo. You have actually got absolutely nothing to work to residually unless you put in the time producing a decent retail customer-base.
Regarding Vasayo’s products, I felt this was the weakest component of the company. The MicroLife Nutritionals range does not seem any different to what you may find in a health shop or through rival MLM companies.
From the Vasayo marketing videos I viewed, it’s clear that the company intends to introduce other items further down the line. These may eventually make the line of product stick out but for now Vasayo’s offering is a bit uninspiring.
