You may have heard about a new “business opportunity” called Bonvera, and you may be wondering if this is a legitimate opportunity or whether it is a pyramid scheme, scam, or a sham. In this post, we’re going to answer these questions:
- What is Bonvera?
- What is the Compensated Marketplace?
- Is Bonvera a Legitimate Company or a Scam?
- Is Bonvera a Pyramid Scheme?
Bonvera is a new e-commerce company that just launched in March of 2016 with the goal of empowering people to build a home based business opportunity around common household items and name brand products.
Essentially, it is a referral based company that compensates those who refer business to them (called “Associates”). This word-of-mouth or affiliate advertising program is it’s main marketing method and is usually referred to as network marketing or direct sales.
Anyway Money for Anyway Products
The phrase has been coined, “anyway money for anyway products” to describe what Bonvera hopes to achieve. In contrast with many other network marketing companies, Bonvera is offering products that people use “anyway” such as sandwich bags, toothpaste, soap and shampoo which consumers are spending money on “anyway.”
The idea is simple. People are already spending money on products, so they might as well buy them from a store that will put some of the money back in their own pockets. This is where Bonvera’s trademarked term “The Compensated Marketplace”™ has meaning.
What is The Compensated Marketplace™?
The Compensated Marketplace™ is the trademarked phrase used to describe Bonvera. Simply put, Bonvera pays out some of its profits to those people who are both buying from them and bringing them additional business.
Whereas other large retailers such as Amazon and Walmart have affiliate programs where they pay for referral business, Bonvera takes this one step further by compensating Associates on a residual, recurring basis for all of the business volume they drive to Bonvera. This allows an Associate to get paid over and over and over again for the work done to drive customers and sales to the Bonvera ecommerce platform once.
So Is Bonvera a Legitimate Business or a Scam?
Bonvera is a legitimate company and is not a scam. While the company does use direct selling / network marketing as its primary marketing strategy, it does not aim to deceive people or to get them to pay money for products of little or no value.
Some people consider anything related to network marketing or direct selling as a scam, but they really shouldn’t. Usually this is because they know someone who was in “one of those things” at some point who simply wouldn’t be respectful enough to shut up about it when they said they weren’t interested. Or maybe that person they knew just didn’t make any money at it. Or, perhaps they know someone who actually was apart of an illegitimate networking company and got burned.
In any case, with some universities now including courses on network marketing, it’s safe to say that the concept itself is mainstream and accepted.
Network marketing companies are basically just more advanced, slightly more complicated versions of what every big retailer is already doing. Amazon, Walmart, eBay, Sears, etc. all have programs where they pay people for referrals.
So Is Bonvera a Pyramid Scheme?
Well, that depends on what you mean…
Most organizations are structured in such a way that the person at the top make all the money. At a minimum, most organizations have an owner, founder, or CEO that makes more money than anyone below them and many organizations have arms or branches of their company (such as a sales arm) where the top person in that particular branch makes more than the other people. In this sense, Bonvera is like any other company. The people “at the top” make more money than the people “at the bottom.”
One of the key differences with Bonvera (and many other MLMs or network marketing companies for that matter), is that there is a real opportunity to make it to the top simply on your skills and efforts without waiting until someone dies or retires.
There is a type of business called a pyramid scheme which has been outlawed in the US and elsewhere. According to Wikipedia, “A pyramid scheme is a business model that recruits members via a promise of payments or services for enrolling others into the scheme, rather than supplying investments or sale of products or services.”
Bonvera is not one of these illegal pyramid schemes. It provides legitimate products and services to it’s Associates and Customers.
Conclusion – Is Bonvera a Scam?
No. Bonvera is not a scam nor is it a pyramid scheme. It is a legitimate business opportunity and it is one of the best opportunities available because it offers average people the opportunity to build a business of their own that would be 1000 times more difficult to do on their own.
Additionally, Bonvera is on the cutting edge of the networking industry as they venture into an area that no networking company has tried before – providing Associates an opportunity to make money by simply switching buying habits from buying on Costco, eBay, Amazon, etc. to buying on Bonvera. It’s that simple.
You’re Missing Out
If you aren’t a part of Bonvera yet, you’re missing out on a HUGE first-mover advantage. At the time of this writing, Bonvera is not even quite 2 months old and has already broken 1 million dollars in revenue. There are already thousands of reps sharing the business opportunity with anyone and everyone they know.
Just ask yourself this question for a moment…
If you could get paid to buy the same things you’re buying now for similar prices, why wouldn’t you?
