The Dead Sea, one of the most intriguing natural phenomena in the planet we’re living in at the moment. For those who aren’t familiar with the Dead Sea, it is a salt lake in between Israel and Jordan in Southwestern Asia. The first question that comes to mind is, is there any life in the Dead Sea? All I know is that the founders of Seacret made a living off Dead Sea’s salts and minerals. Such a clever idea.
Seacret was founded by the brothers Izhak and Mordechai Ben Shabat in 2005 which officially started as a mall kiosk back then. He and his brother were natives of Israel who moved to the United States in 2000 on a chance of making the American dream. The siblings started putting up different businesses, from ice cream trucks to selling helicopter toys which indeed became successful for beginners. And became more successful when they started selling their Dead Sea products, inspired by their homeland.
One of their most popular products is the Dead Sea’s mud mask. It is said that it contains minerals that remove excess pollutants while leaving essential oils on your skin. And the mineral magnesium, which maintains your skin barrier and elasticity. They also claimed that this product unfolds the wrinkles on your skin and is accompanied by salt scrubs, mud soaps and more to use for the whole body.
From starting in a mall kiosk, the company became worldwide in just 5 years and then adapted the network marketing model in 2011. Inspiring people to look, feel and live their best lives, Seacret developed products on skin, beauty and hair care, and now they also have nutritional supplements. All are infused with the Dead Sea’s minerals which are said to have the most concentrated natural mineral salt and mineral-rich mud that are essential to the health of the skin.
To become part of Seacret and become a Seacret Agent(what a creative man, because who wouldn’t want to be, ‘eyy?) will cost you $49 and is paid annually. To remain active and to be qualified for commissions, you must achieve at least 100 PV monthly, or you can avail 35 BV (business volume) every month which will cost an additional $50. That’s a total of $99 for your first month.
If everything goes well, then you’re good to go. You will be eligible to get commissions from the company. Basic form of commission is the retail part. Seacret Agents can earn commissions of up to 30% (which is normal or the base percentage of retail commission for most of the MLM companies out there) either by buying them yourself at wholesale prices and selling them on retail price, or by customers directly buying from your replicated website provided by the company.
They also have a preferred customer bonus where you enroll customers to apply for their monthly autoship program and you will get up to 25% commission of the total autoship BV generated by each customer. This is the easiest way to earn passive income in any MLM setup but also the hardest part, because finding preferred customers is not as easy as you think it is for the product’s prices are not cheap to begin with.
Their residual commission is based on a binary structure. You earn up to 15% commissions monthly through your weaker leg in your downline. To start with this commission, you need to at least recruit two new affiliates that will, of course, represent your left and right leg. They also have a check match bonus that can go down to 4 levels called generation, with the base percentage of 20% that can go up to 50% in total when it reaches up to the 4th generation.
There are a total of 10 affiliate rankings in Seacret where their agents can focus and climb to earn rank advancement bonuses. Every milestone you reach will earn you bonuses not paid in cash, but in product credits. Along with this rank advancement bonus, there’s also a car bonus which can only be used when purchasing a car and lifestyle bonus paid in cash for high ranking affiliates to grasp and enjoy.
Most negative reviews from Seacret is how their agents act. Some say they’re too aggressive or pushy in a way that it can be categorized as desperation, why? Because of their overly expensive products, most if not all people prefer to just stay away and ignore them. And that will make these agents cut short in their sales, which will only cause them to buy the products themselves just to be able to qualify for commissions. Commissions with monthly quota requirements is such a drag for most MLM employees.
Yes, some of their consumers enjoy and use their products, but they’re the minority of the people. Seacret is not a scam, but as a business opportunity, I don’t recommend it. If you want to be like those aggressive agents following people all around the streets just to make a sale, then I’m worried about you mate, I really do. It already came from the FTC that 99% of MLM joiners lose money, so don’t waste your money, time and effort into this kind of setup.
