The Story of Agel
Agel is a fairly seasoned company by standards in the health and wellness industry. With new companies coming into the market (and leaving) all the time, Agel’s six-year history is quite a long one.
Since the booming success of Herbalife, starting in the 1980’s, companies in the health and wellness industry have been popping up all over the place. Especially companies with MLM components.
One big name at the moment is Agel, founded by Glen Jensen in 2005. He wanted to revolutionize the industry with a new technology, and he came up with Suspension Gel Technology, a new way for people to take their vitamins.
Jensen figured that if athletes pound gels before a big game or competition, then average Joe’s might be interested in it too. And the company claims that the gels help users absorb vitamins faster than normal pills, which sit in your digestive system for awhile before becoming effective.
So that’s the story of Agel. They’ve expanded to include all sorts of products, from topical gels (for everyday solutions) to face creams for ageless beauty and better skin, and also night gels that are even supposed to help you relax.
Do the Products Work?
The list of benefits from Agel products is endless. And none of it is backed scientifically, except by the Agel scientists themselves. But, all products are FDA approved.
So the question for new network marketers, really, is one of legitimacy.
How Can I Tell if This is Real?
Sometimes MLM companies make their products, and compensation plans, sound too good to be true. You’ll make millions. You’ll earn a car. You’ll go on free vacations and you’ll have a big fat expense account.
All the while, the critics run around and scream, “Pyramid Scheme!”
It can be tough to evaluate opportunities like this.
The Bottom Like on Agel
As for the legality of the business, Agel is in compliance with business laws set by the public, and adheres to marketing regulations. Otherwise, they’d quickly be slapped with a lawsuit, as they’re in the public eye.
As for their products, it’s ultimately up to the user to decide exactly what benefits they receive from the gels. And it’s up to network marketers to try before they buy, and only invest in products that they genuinely believe work. If you don’t believe in something, how will you sell it?
And as for the claims of fame and fortune on the part of Agel and other MLM’s, well, it may be misguided ethically, but the truth is that some people really do find this kind of success with Agel. Their website offers a series of success stories by people who have been there, done that.
It’s not a scheme. But people really need to understand how to harness the power of the internet to get thousands of leads before they jump into an opportunity like this. Because if you want to get to the top, you can’t just sell products to family and friends. You have to develop specific network marketing business techniques to find that fairy-tale success.
