MonaVie Allows Social Media

July 14, 2009

Reading the latest issue of MonaVie’s On The Move magazine online, I noticed that the corporation is now allowing its distributors to share MonaVie on blogs and social networks.

In the past, I believe only Black Diamonds were actually allowed to have their own personal web sites (not counting the MonaVie-sponsored cookie cutter web sites for distributors). Of course, this hasn’t stopped distributors from posting anonymously online on many web sites.

Before distributors can post text and videos online, they have to complete this Compliance Certification course. Other things that distributors need to follow include:

  • All text postings must include the Distributor’s name and ID number.
  • All video must include a clear image of the Distributor’s name and ID number.
  • All videos must be approved in advance by our Compliance department.
  • Distributors shall use the Independent Distributor Logo.
  • All postings, either text or video, must contain busines opportunity content and may only mention the product by name. All reference to the product should be made by referring the viewer to either the Independent Distributor’s website or to No testimonials of any kind will be permitted.

Bold emphasis is mine. In the past, putting up your distributor ID number was a quick way to get terminated. Somehow, I don’t think that those distributors debating the critics on sites like PurpleHorror and Lazy Man or even Orrin Woodward’s blog are going to start putting up their distributor numbers. Plus, do you really think a Black Diamond like Orrin Woodward is going to display his distributor numbers on every video and blog post he makes regarding MonaVie?

My thinking is that there’s one set of rules for Diamonds and another set of rules for everyone else.

Now, I understand why MonaVie doesn’t want people providing testimonials for something that is basically juice concentrate in a fancy wine bottle, but what are they going to say other than, “Ain’t it great! This stuff makes me healthy, wealthy and wise! Email me for more info!” or some other nonsensical drivel?

    interesting. It might leave Amway IBOs at a disadvantage.

    If being in Amway could possibly be more disadvantageous.

    LOL, that is so true. Folks hear AMway and they run for the hills.

    I recently had a friend try and recruit me for Mona Vie. She mentioned that she signed up, used the product and registered soem others and then she basically did nothing and collected a small income.

    I told her that if she is doing nothing and getting something, then somebody is doing something and getting nothing.

    There was a moment of silence and then she changed the subject.

    That’s gotta be the best comeback I’ve read in a very long time.
    Most excellent!

    Hello joecool,

    How are you doing?

    What a great (albeit inaccurate) response you gave to your friend. I enjoyed that so much, next time I will tell my downlines, “If you are doing nothing and getting something, that means that someone is doing something for you and getting nothing – that’s probably me!” (OK, in MonaVie it is not really nothing – people do earn something on every PV under them) 🙂

    To correct the possible inaccuracy (hope you don’t mind!) I believe your friend received a small income from MoinaVie because she recommended MonaVie to a few friends who were then enrolled automatically under her weaker leg OR as Preferred Customers, hence earning her either a 10% Team Commissions OR a US$25 Preferred Customer Bonus.

    btw, I just saw that you have been promoted to “KINGPIN” in the Anti-Amway Business by Levi! LOL, no offense meant, but I just find it sooo funny that there are now “kingpins” in the Anti-Amway Business (cf. Amway Business).. hehehe 🙂

    Bah, Joe is an amateur. He needs around 6,000 posts to be promoted to “KINGPIN”. Gina and I only need around 300-600 🙂
