Now Lifestyle Review – Is Now Lifestyle An MLM Scam or Pyramid Scheme?

Now Lifestyle Review – Is Now Lifestyle An MLM Scam or Pyramid Scheme?

I was searching google and saw that someone did a Now Lifestyle Review and as usual, it was someone from Wealthy Affiliate.  Wealthy Affiliates learn great SEO tricks such as doing negative reviews of popular companies like Now Lifestyle.  In this review I will inform the uninformed about Now Lifestyle and wealthy affiliate.

First of all, wealthy affiliate is an online “program” – wow someone bought a site script and created a program… so amazing!

NLS – Now Lifestyle was launched just under 1 year ago and it is just one of MULTIPLE Products/Services Offered by GVO – Global Virtual Opportunities and CEO Joel Therein.

Now Lifestyle is A REAL BUSINESS with REAL Offices, REAL Employees, REAL Products and REAL Services.

They also host all of their own websites, Blogs, Pages, web based products, digtal products and services on their own 700+ servers. So they don’t have to rely on hostgator or any other webhosting company to do it FOR them.

Now Lifestyle also provides PHYSICAL products as well in the health & Wellness niche. Health & Wellness is a Trillion Dollar per year industry.  GVO and Joel Therein has paid its affiliates over $400,000,000+ so far and paid on time every time over the past near 20 years. The Now Lifestyle products and services have paid affiliates over 1.8 Million in just the first 8 months+

Not one of GVO’s products/services have disappeared either. They are in the business of ADDING Value not “replacing it”

In the review I read they stated that Now Lifestyle has a per year fee to build your downlines….

WRONG! The yearly fee is a reseller’s fee.  You can purchase any product or service from Now Lifestyle that you choose.  The fee is only necessary if you are trying to build it as a business.

Another remark made was that customers are also resellers… again WRONG! Becoming a reseller of any product is your choice. Now Lifestyle has both customers and resellers.  Some people are affiliates that are building a BUSINESS (not a job) and some people are just customers that choose to purchase marketing tools for their business such as the auto responder service, the Now Lifestyle Now Body Whey Protein, Fiber, Energy Booster Supplements, you can also get in on the health & wellness plan itself by filling out a fit profile, cleaning up eating habits (not “dieting” but choosing from a list of foods that YOU love) and working out just 7-10 minutes per day 3 times per week.  And YES it works!

Which Opportunity is Better?

Wealthy Affiliate – I think I signed up with them many years ago. Are they a scam? No I do not think they are.  They are a “program” in the “make money by teaching people to make money business” niche. So if you are not looking for an online business, or training to build one then they will not be of any value to you. It is run from an apartment in New York, NY because it’s a “program” That doesn’t mean it’s bad or a scam or anything, it simply means that you are relying on 1 person or maybe a couple of people.

Wealthy affiliate has an A+ Rating with the BBB

Their website states that they pay over $1 Million per year to affiliates. I do have to disagree with their practices of creating negative reviews about popular companies though.  However, it is pretty smart because it gives them a way of utilizing highly ranked key words in google search engines like Now Lifestyle.

Now Lifestyle – Are they a scam or pyramid scheme? Absolutely not. Their business would not survive if they were. It is run from an actual office in Schertz, TX. An office with real employees, a real staff with a true plan for the future. If something ever happens to the CEO, the business will continue to thrive and grow.

There is a BIG difference between a pyramid scheme and legit affiliate marketing.

Have you ever heard of WAL MART?

Click The Image Below and after reviewing, tell me if you think that WAL MART is a pyramid scheme or a real company.

People often times cry scam or scheme when there is a purchase involved. You are not “buying thin air” you are purchasing a product or service.  Did WAL MART get a building for free? Do the trucks deliver products for Wal Mart to sell that no one ever paid for? Does wal mart or Pepsi, coke, Band Aid or McDonald’s get their supplies brought to them for free?

i.e. Buildings, Trucks, cash registers, flyers, domain name, webhosting, electricity, cans, bottles, machines, etc.

And while we’re at it, How much do you think it costs companies on a regular basis to have all of those things. Thousands of dollars per month!

Online “Opportunities” are exactly that. Opportunities. and you do NOT need to have tens of thousands of dollars to get involved with them. Online, your flyers have become web pages. Your building has become your webhosting and the sign on the building has become your domain name. Your inventory or stock room has become your members area.  Affiliate Bob and affiliate Angie could be compared to Wal Mart in Woodland, California and Walmart in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania.

Opportunities to purchase then resell products and services are everywhere online. You could go to and affiliate network and promote someone else’s sales pages for free (good luck, thats what I did from 2008-2011 and failed miserably).  In order to succeed in doing that you NEED an auto responder and a capture page then you can share more information about the product via email, share

GVO also has an A+ Rating with the BBB as well

The Dumbest Sentence in The Now Lifestyle Review I Read

In the review it was stated that if you were considering getting involved with Now Lifestyle because it’s in the health & wellness niche to just find health and wellness affiliate programs instead….

News Flash:  Now Lifestyle IS an affiliate program. That’s you every one that gets involved with the Now Lifestyle Opportunity gets an “Affiliate” link.  One thing that I absolutely love is that the majority of their affiliate links are Capture Pages.  So many people fail online because they advertise sales pages.  You also get facebook affiliate links. Once someone clicks any of those links to view a facebook post… they are locked to you for life! which means if they decide to visit at any point 3 months from now a year from now or 5 years from now…YOU will get credited and paid for any of their purchases (clearing cache & cookies won’t matter because you are linked together via your social media accounts).

YOU Decide which is best for you

(I’m not so insecure to label this section “better than…” as in the review I read)

Here’s the snippet below

Note: I find it quite amusing that he mentions not being tied down to “one company “and then proceeds to convince you to join…. ONE COMPANY, lol.

Personally I am an affiliate of multiple programs and businesses online and I use the products and services from them to build other things… For example:  I use a platform on this site for all of my content, I also use that same platform to create my own FULLY customized capture pages and then use the Now Lifestyle auto responder form code within those pages because this platform allows you to tie ANY auto responder service you choose. Many are already set in a list to choose from and for others you can simply add your html form code.

Wealthy Affiliate: Make Money by teaching people to make money

(I think  I am affiliated with wealthyaffiliate but I am not promoting it here because it’s just not for me)

Now Lifestyle: Make money by selling Marketing Tools such as the Auto responder (that hits the inbox every single time thus far) & Health and Wellness Products or come as a customer only and give us your feedback on our products.

For sake of FULL TRANSPARENCY and complete HONESTY I will say that YES I am promoting Now Lifestyle in this Review so If you would like to be part of a Massive  SUCCESSFUL NLS Dream Team with actual systems instead of going at it alone I would be more than happy to have you on Our Team.

I am also promoting an awesome platform in this review that I build all of my pages, websites, blogs and more with as well called Royalty Funnels (This site was even built with Royalty Funnels as well).  I only promote products and services that I personally have purchased and use as well. After all, if you yourself don’t buy the product that you are selling, it must not provide you any value or you would own it yourself and if you didn’t buy the product, why would you expect anyone else to?

    1. Thank you so much for the feedback Wilfredo! This site is only about a month old so there will be more content added in the future. I had a lot of issues with my old website and web host among other things so I decided to start brand new from scratch.

  2. Excellent beat ! I wish to apprentice while you amend your web site, how could i subscribe for a blog web site? The account helped me a acceptable deal. I had been a little bit acquainted of this your broadcast provided bright clear concept

  3. Nice weblog right here! Additionally your web site rather a lot up fast! What web host are you the use of? Can I get your associate link on your host? I wish my web site loaded up as fast as yours lol

    1. Thank You For the kind words. I get web hosting here for UNLIMITED Websites, Blogs and Pages and a lot more too! Also, there are a lot of plugins and extras that without them I would have to pay for separately. Great Value here.

  4. I am so glad that you have made the effort to rebut these people. I hope this helps to encourage the people who are beginners, myself included, to disregard these sites and go forward to reach for the golden opportunity. Thank you so much. Jessie Petzold

    1. I completely agree with you Jessie. For years I keep seeing “wealthy affiliate” affiliates talking trash about EVERY popular business. saying that they are terrible or scams or that they won’t last. Funny thing is, the majority of them are still in business and paying their affiliates years if not decades later.
      It’s like I said in my post, they just talk negatively about popular sites in order to get high rankings in google.
      I started online in 2008 and never started making money until 2011 so I have quite the soft spot for beginners. I want to share everything I know, whether they do business with me personally or not.
      You’re Welcome Jessie

  5. Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Ie, it looks fine but
    when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!

    1. Thanks for the heads up and for the compliment as well but I just checked using Internet Explorer and everything looks fine on my end.
