A market is never saturated with a good product, but it is very quickly saturated with a bad one.
I have seen many critic sites about Quixtar. Almost all of them criticize the tool scam, lies told to public, vulture type prospect hunting, invitation to secret….err… open meetings, upline push for volume and tools, overpriced products etc. Oh boy, just type in the word Quixtar in google.com and it will open a can of worms! Don’t forget to visit the second link, its more important than first one ;) First one is behind the password so you can’t do much there. :)
Even some of the critics said that products are good. Overpriced, but good. When I was in the business, I religiously believed so. Like the majority of IBOs does. I’ve left the business, but I’m still in good terms with my sponsor. I was there this Sunday night to return some things (yeah! tapes). I really like that couple. I doubt if they are making any money though, as they go to US for conferences every other month. I really wanted to help them. I heard about XS a lot. I am their client for 2 products (Glister toothpaste, Fuel Freedom) and they give me IBO price. Cool eh!
I asked for XS and bought a Cranberry XS for 2.5 CAD bucks. I was thinking that in office, I have to chug down crapy coffee with a lot of sugar, XS will be cool. Sweet, low in carbs and stuffed with vitamins. I’ll be more healthy and I might be able to help this good couple by promoting it to some of my fat colleagues :)
I tried it when I came home. I wanna sing “Nausea heartburn upset stomach indigestion diarrhea, yea pepto-bismol". Yeah! It tasted so much like it! Pepto-bismol + cough medicine! I asked my sister to taste it. Her taste buds always work opposite than mine. She said the same thing!
And it gets better, after two hours my belly starts speaking “Thump thump thump”. Has any one seen that cute ad?
I don’t know if my stomach got fired up because of XS or not. But taste was crapy for sure. I’m not gonna try another brand, and forget about promoting it! My friends would kill me!
And I remember the products I tried because of the “promotion” of upline. Strawberry shake, vanilla shake, protein bars. A big YUCK! These damn shakes are allergic to water, they doesn’t mix! I bought a Trim advantage shaker glass for 15 bucks, (which should be 3 bucks max) to mix them. Mixing is another story. After some use, it start smelling so bad! Washed it with LOC dish drops, than with name brands. Smell won’t go! And protein bars, don’t get me started! I only liked chocolate coconut food bar.
Also tried Dry-cleaner secret. It DOESN’T clean! Just kills the smell of sweat.
I remember trying ginseng. I was 25 year old and boy! My mojo was un-necessarily high! I’m scared to even name that vitamin now.
Sure, some products are good. I won’t compare them with other name brands. One thing I know, in my self consumption of 300 PV, I was spending $650 extra. Here’s the math.
300 PV = 300 * 2.5 = $750
Redirection saving from wal-mart = $100
Extra money spent on products every month
= $750 - $100 = $650
Retail, what retail? We were sponsored by saying that "there is no sales! Just buy for yourself and tell others to do the same". Retail was scorned in every quest by saying that it will not be a repeat business.
Even if you do the recommended retail of 50 PV using client cost it will be:
Retail Revenue = 50 * 3 = 150
I am using $3 / PV as it's client cost.
Extra money spent = $650 - $150 = $500
Good lucks selling Quixtar items at client cost! It's hard enough to sell at IBO cost!
A final note: NO McDonalds owner always eats only from McDonalds! Talk about loyal to your own business! And who is pictured in every secret…err.. open meeting? McDonalds! Founder of franchising! Mr. Ray Crok.
He was a genius, but IBOs are ......!
