Is Seacret a Pyramid?
This answer comes in 2 segments.
The Seacret Direct skincare company started in kiosks in the malls and turned into a global powerhouse – today the company has achieved over $800 million in sales, and is in 36 countries. The strength in Seacret Direct is their product, the product is the star.
The core structure behind the Seacret company is family and community, which includes all the smiling faces you see behind the kiosks. Because it is hard work and 12 hour+ days, those working the Seacret kiosks were/are rewarded with the highest possible financial reward. After product costs and business expense, the commission structure is generous – because to the Founders, there’d be no success were it not for their people, making such sacrifices for the success and sales of the Seacret Skin product. About 600 families are responsible for it’s existence, since we all cannot go to the Dead Sea ourselves, and get the benefits.
Seacret Direct recently came to a fork in the road in regards to expansion. The dead sea skin products are now more popular than ever before and the time came to consider stores, such as Sephoria.
However, building Seacret stores would mean more expense, advertising and celebrity endorsement to get traffic in the store – whereas the kiosks are sitting in traffic, with reps able to demonstrate the products. If the conversion went to stores, tons of expense would increase, product demonstration in front of people would be eliminated. The Seacret product is the star, the people are the marketing…both would suffer. Commission structures would decrease to absorb extra expenses – and that was not acceptable to the Owners…because the people and community are their pride, joy and community. The people are family, and extended family.
What to do? That is when the idea of Referral Marketing came to Seacret.
Truth be told, the Owners/Founders of Seacret Direct were not in the market for it. In fact, Seacret was dead set against the idea of Network Marketing. Why?
Because they had heard all the bad press about it as you and I at least 1, if not many times. Like many things, a few bad apples can ruin an entire reputation or business. Enjoy this video on Seacret’s Founder, Izhak’s reaction below!
So now you understand the care and reasons behind why Network Marketing being the answer for the ultimate transition for the next stages of Seacret Direct.
Network Marketing puts the product and sincerity of sharing Seacret at the forefront, keeps commissions generous, along with a very competitive compensation plan as well.
Now you know Seacret is a company with ethics of the highest standard. Very wonderful to be part of such a community, where the Owners have your back and are here for the long haul, wherever your dreams take you within it.

What is a Pyramid? Looking to the left, this is Robert Kiyosaki’s business quadrant. Investor. This is where your business works for you. Investor comes with putting some money down, but here the business works for you, unlike our 3 above models – where you work for it.
Network marketing is one form of Investor;
the model’s strength lies in residual, passive income that keeps your hands free and out of your business, due to the fact that many hands are involved for it’s success. It’s duplicatable – priority #1 for any profitable business.
Now, that said,
let’s be real about the facts regarding network marketing, pyramid, and the potential to be earning a 7 figure annual salary in it.
First, you may be asking: “What is a Pyramid Scheme?” A Pyramid scheme is any company that doesn’t have an actual product it is selling. There are lots of pyramid businesses out there, but without an actual product – they are a pyramid scheme. Now that we’ve answered that, many people dived into network marketing, have had bad experiences and walk away believing they’ve been involved with a pyramid scheme. They may have been promised things simply not possible, such as earning an income of millions. You may know this, but if not, read carefully and take it to heart. There are only 3 ways to be earning that kind of income in network marketing, if the company they or possibly yourself either now or in the past did not fall into the these 3 categories below, someone was definitely not forthright with you. Here they are:
1) First Mover’s Position.
Yep, when it’s brand new. The company has to be in it’s infancy – with only 30,000 distributors or less.
2) You introduce the network company into a country. Again, this is like the first mover’s position but oftentimes this takes place outside of the U.S.
3) You came from an existing organization and brought your people into a different network company.
If you are in network marketing right now, does it fall into at least 1 of these 3 categories? Myself, along with many colleagues, have learned the hard way, the truth about network marketing. The first mover’s position only comes along once in a lifetime.
