Most of us, if not all, know blueberry cheesecakes, right? (sorry to some folks who I’ve triggered their cravings) These cakes are one of the most delicious cakes humans have made. But did you know that some native blueberries were used to make nutrition and health supplements? Kyani is well known for their juice product that is made of wild Alaskan Blueberries. How do these blueberries differ from the others?
Kyani was founded by Kirk Hansen and Carl Taylor in 2005. It started when they got curious on how the Eskimos (group of indigenous people in the eastern Siberia and Alaska) casually never get sick and live longer lives, compared to us living in the city. They learned that most of this group of people’s diet includes wild Alaskan sockeye salmon and wild blueberries which are native in their place.
It turned out that Alaskan blueberries are 48% stronger than your common blueberries sold in the market. These blueberries were the most potent sources of antioxidants and this property was enhanced due to extreme change in temperatures, and extended periods of sunlight and darkness. It really is fancy that nature does this kind of work to our surroundings. And thus Kyani (which means “super medicine” in the native language of these indigenous people – Tlingit) was established.
The company is well-known for their product Triangle of Health. It comprises 3 different products which can arguably be beneficial to our immune system. They also now have skin care products made of natural plant stem cell extracts to help lessen the appearances of wrinkles. A true definition of beauty inside and out indeed. Kyani is now in the good hands of Katy Holt-Larsen as the CEO after Carl Taylor handed over the throne.
To join Kyani, they have different packs that cost ranging from $40-$999. The $40 only registers you as a member and doesn’t include anything in it. The other packs have assorted Kyani products, an access to business tools and back office that can help you manage your startup business with them which is free for the first 3-12months depending on the pack you purchased. They also have free training, seminars, tutorials, and product guides for beginners to learn the right techniques in these kinds of businesses.
One of the basic ways to earn money in most MLM setups is by retail commissions. You get to pocket the difference of the retail price you sold the product and the wholesale price which you bought the product at. Along with the retail order bonuses where you earn extra income by reaching a certain milestone CV (commissionable volume) sales in a month, there’s also a retail bonus pool which can get you a share of Kyani’s company-wide monthly retail order volume.
There’s a total of 15 affiliate ranks in Kyani. They have this so-called differential recruitment commission where you can earn a percentage that ranges from 15-100% of the starter pack your recruits bought based on your rank. Their residual commission adopted the placement tree structure. It is the same as the unilevel structure but here, the affiliate has the freedom to place where his new recruit will go, either in an existing leg or create a new leg.
Much more commissions and bonuses can be earned as you climb up in ranks. Having the freedom to put your newly recruited affiliates to your desired unilevel leg can be an asset in building a productive downline because milestones in ranking up requires group volumes of your 2 strongest unilevel legs. You just need to find and sponsor the “wild” ones as I will describe them to be.
Kyani isn’t free from allegations and suspicions over the past years. They were suspected by the Swedish Gaming Board for operating a “chain letter game”, which basically tagged them as a pyramid scheme. In 2016, they were investigated by Truth in Advertising and have been reported to the DFA and FTC for improper health and income claims. And in 2018, they were countersued by their former head of Scientific Advisory Board, Dr. Qutab after an ugly break-up with the company.
All in all, Kyani is not a scam. It is a legitimate company that depends on sales and recruitment to earn money. They have products for you to retail but it will not be that easy because MLM products cost a lot compared to those you can buy at convenience stores. And recruiting people is not a joke, even if you’ll try to do it with your warm market, there is a possibility to jeopardize your relationship with them, which you don’t want to happen, do you?
