GoHereNext Review (MLM or Pyramid Scheme Scam?)

Doing sales pitches for a company is not an easy job. Self experience is a great way of telling a story in promoting a product. It’s even better if you already have used their product which you can use yourself as an example on how great the product works on someone’s body. After your story, maybe someone can relate to it at one point and might try to use it too. That’s one way to deliver a successful pitch. But what about GoHereNext?

NEXT: Compare This To Doing Sales Pitches

GoHereNext was created by Roger Barnett, the CEO of The Shaklee Company. GoHereNext is an online business created to recruit sales representatives to pitch and spread the word of the greatness of Shaklee’s products. For those who are not familiar with Shaklee, it is a company that has been around since 1956 and is producing health and wellness products as well as personal care products. 

Typing their supposedly website goherenext.com will only lead you to Shaklee’s website. So in general, GoHereNext was created solely for the use of Shaklee. It costs $47 to be a sales representative in this company. You don’t have actual products to sell, you just need to introduce Shaklee and their products and you will earn commissions when those customers use your referral when buying a product. 

It is close to being tagged as a pyramid scheme because it only has a referral system, but they can’t be tagged as one because they have Shaklee. So why not just join Shaklee and be an affiliate yourself rather than doing sales pitches when you’re already going in that direction. And becoming an affiliate can help you earn more bonuses and rewards when you sell Shaklee products yourself. 

You can join Shaklee at the cost of $49.95 as the basic membership (or Distributor Welcome Kit as they call it). This includes your digital tools and 3 months of access to your personal website that can help you keep track of your business. You can still then choose to pay for the “Prove It Challenge” pack that’s worth $250 which contains assorted Shaklee products. This will help you be qualified for various commissions and bonuses.

They have a retail commission that lets you earn a percentage of the difference between the wholesale price and the retail price of the product that you sold. The Prove It Challenge bonus where you get $75 for each group of three “Prove It Challenge” packs you sold monthly. You can also use this pack instead of buying different items just to be able to maintain your rank as Director which requires you to buy a monthly PV of 100.

Residual commissions are earned through your downline in a unilevel structure. More commissions and bonuses are earned as you climb up in rank and recruit more people. Personal group bonus that gives up to 20% bonus based on the PGV output of you, your customers and your downline. Infinity bonus of up to 8% beyond their 6 levels in the unilevel team and a matching bonus and presidential bonus to add to that.

There are several lawsuits filed concerning Shaklee. FTC ordered them to discontinue and pull out their product “Instant Protein” because of false advertising back in 1974. Then fined, again by FTC in 1976 due to retail price rigging. They were forcing their contractors to advertise their own suggested retail prices of their products. They sued former distributors for product defamation and interference in business relationships after they signed on to a rival company in 1978.

It was then discovered that back in 1973, Shaklee already knew that their alfalfa tablets were contaminated with salmonella bacteria but still continued production not until 1977 when they tried to treat it with a fumigant which was suspected to be carcinogenic. And a more recent one was in 2016, when they were accused of trademark infringement of their Healthprint product.

GoHereNext can’t be tagged as a pyramid scheme because they have Shaklee. It is a legit online business opportunity for people who want to work from home. They will just do a sales pitch for the company Shaklee and their good as done. It might be a problem because it requires you to promote it aggressively to your family, friends or co-workers, which may sometimes jeopardize your relationship with them.
