Company: Zrii, LLC
Founder/CEO: William Farley
Welcome to my review of Zrii!
I would like to start out by congratulating you on doing research on Zrii before jumping in head first.
Believe it or not, when some people see advertisements on social media or hear about an online business opportunity from a friend, they join without knowing anything.
This is where I come in. I conduct research on MLM and network marketing companies and relay it to you.
The information I provide is straight forward and there is no fluff involved which means I will tell you all the things that the company will not.
The best part about it is that I am a 3rd party reviewer which means I have no affiliation with the companies I write about.
My reviews always start out with a brief background check and then followed by a product review, compensation plan and Better Business Bureau (BBB) information.
After those sections, I finish off with a recap of the things to be wary of when looking at Zrii and for all MLMs you are considering.
Let’s get started with the overview first because there is a lot to cover.
Zrii Overview – What Is The Company?
There are always to stories to tell when it comes to MLMs or network marketing companies.
In this section, I will provide you some information directly from the Zrii website and then I will show you some things that the company will not tell you.
This is due to bad press which will deter people from joining the program and buying products.
Zrii is known for their liquid nutrient rich supplement which are said to come from natural herbs and fruits.
Zrii ws founded by William Farley in 2008 and is headquartered in Draper, Utah USA.
Although the company has been around for 8+ years, it has grown rather quickly and is still showing signs of good things to come.
This can be confirmed because new locations are springing up through the USA and other countries such as Columbia, Mexico and Israel.
Ok, now that you have see one side of the story, let me briefly introduce an article that I think potential affiliates may find interesting.
Here is the article titled, Supplement Company Zrii Settles Suits Against Rebellious Ex-Managers.
Before I get started with the content of the article I would like to say, YES, I get the fact that the former executives of Zrii were said to have tried to conduct a hostile takeover of Zrii.
What is interesting though is the fact that the former executives had some very startling accusations.
The executives pointed out that Founder William Farley nearly broke the company because he used the company’s funds as a personal bank account, violated tax laws, made illegal political contributions conducted himself inappropriately on many occasions.
The article itself made it seem like it was a case of “he said, she said,” but was ultimately settled with a $400k payout on behalf of the former executives.
With the case being settle without a trial, we never got to find out if the accusations about Farley were legitimate or not.
Either way, this is something that the company will never disclose because of bad press.
However, I thought it would be something that you should know before considering Zrii.
So there you have it, two different outlooks on the company to show you that there are both positives and negatives.
On to the product list.
Products & Services
Besides stellar leadership, the products are the most important aspect of a company.
Without a marketable product, the company is bound to failure. According to the main website, Zrii provides two different lines of product that consist of WELLNESS & SKINCARE.
Zrii Z+ Energy Drink
75 mg caffeine for a BURST of energy
20 calories per serving
2 grams of sugar per serving
Supports Healthy Digestion
Fortifies Immune Health
Gluten & GMO Free
Rise High Performance Coffee
Antioxidant-rich green coffee bean extract & Amalaki
Rainforest Alliance Certified
Other products in this category include Acheive Weight Management Shake, Accell Energy Booster, Daily AM & PM, Smart Omega-3 and Purify.
The point is, Zrii is promising what every single Health and Wellness niche MLM has.
The products are somehow some magical concoction that help you lose weight and become healthy.
You could also do the same thing by eating a balanced diet and moderate exercise but hey, spending a few hundred bucks a month to give you worse results may be easier in the mind of some people.
I hate sounding cynical but I have done many reviews about similar MLMs and they are all the same.
For every success story you hear, there are a dozen people complaining about rashes, cramps or no change whatsoever.
I’m not saying you can’t make money with the company but the only way to make money is to take advantage of people that are looking for a quick fix.
Sorry but that isn’t really what I would look for at least from a moral standpoint.
Let’s take a look at the compensation plan now.
It is now time to take a look at the plan that will hopefully make you money if you end up joining Zrii.
Ok, to start things off, you should take the time to browse the Zrii Compensation Plan, here.
There are 3 categories within the plan structures including, Immediate, Residual and Leadership.
1.Fast Start Bonus
2.Double Fast Start Bonus
4.Star maker Bonus
6.Four Weeks to 4-Star
15.RSA Elite Club
16.Global Leadership Pool
There are 16 different ways to take advantage of this compensation plan which is really nice.
Right out of the gate, the IE Rank shows us the truth about Zrii and every single MLM out there.
The vast majority of Independent Executives make next to nothing in a given month. Seriously, 86.64% of members make an average of $2,210 in a year.
That is $184 per month on average for working your butt off.
To be honest, this is proof that you should stay away from this company and from MLMs in general.
This one figure is damning but only ranks 6+ provide you with a livable wage and that is an average so there are Rank 6/7s that do not make a comfortable living.
Better Business Bureau (BBB)
The BBB is a great source for information about a company.
This first image is the grade in which BBB gives Zrii. As you can see it is an A+, which means that if a customer complains about the company, they seem to take care of the issue in the appropriate manner.
The first image also show that the company is not accredited with the BBB although that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
Unfortunately, there is only 1 complaint in the system for Zrii which can mean a number of things.
I wish that I could show you both a negative and positive comment but in this case there is nothing I can do about it.
Without further, here is the complaint about Zrii.
As you can see there seems to always be an issue with the automatic ordering system with every MLM.
I have see the same complaint in many other reviews that I have done.
It looks like Zrii is not immune to this issue and I think there should be some sort of action taken with auto shipping.
It seems to be causing more problems than it is worth. At any rate, let’s get to the next section.
With that being said, let’s do a recap as to why I dislike Zrii as a business opportunity.
Things I Don’t Like About Zrii
OK, before I dive into the list, I want to start off by saying that it is possible to make money with this company, but the odds are stacked against you because of classic MLM deficiencies.
In this section I will be discussing recruiting, scientific studies and complaints.
The first issue that I have with Zrii and all MLMs for that matter is the fact that you live and die by recruiting and generating successful leads.
You have to already possess a great understanding in the art of recruiting which means you already have to have those skills before joining.
It is nearly impossible to learn on the fly because you don’t have time to spare.
If you don’t start recruiting ASAP you will be one of 86% of failures that I showed you earlier in the review.
In fact, I am willing to bet that recruiting is the downfall of the majority of the failed members.
The second issue I have are the so called scientific studies that support false claims.
Go ahead and read the secion on the Zrii website if you must but there are issues with these claims.
First of all, all of the so called scientific studies that Zrii does are paid for and the results can never be verified by any credible source because no one is will to lose their reputation over a simple case of pseudo science.
Look, I get it, companies have to market a product line even if that means stretching the truth a little bit but let’s be honest for a moment.
If Zrii can show me a statement by the World Health Organization or by the FDA, I will only say that the products have marginal effects on a marginal number of consumers.
Think about it this way, if the product was special, magical or defying the medical field, then it would be mainstream and all other competitors would be wiped off the map.
The other thing to consider is the fact that there are 100s of other companies in the same niche claiming the same thing.
I mean how many companies can find a “special blend” or “miracle ingredient?”
If you aren’t skeptical, you should be.
I always end this section of my reviews with a positive and negative comment from a consumer or affiliate to show you that there are two kinds of online entrepreneurs out there.
Ones that believe that MLMs work and ones that are a complete scam.
The Final Verdict
Although I have been harsh at times, Zrii is not legally a scam because the regulations on MLMs are lax.
The only way BBB gets involved is if there are a rather large number of complaints and you know the FDA won’t say a word unless things get really bad.
So the only recommendations that I can give you is to run away from all MLMs including Zrii and get yourself some intense and credible training if you want to make in as an online entrepreneur.
In my opinion, there is no other way.
If you are looking for an example of a legit online business opportunity go ahead and read this review.
There is ZERO recruiting involved and you can join for FREE, so there is absolutely no risk whatsoever.
