As a relatively new company to the world of network marketing, Asea has certainly grabbed a lot of attention with an often misunderstood anti-aging supplement as their flagship product that has skeptics claiming that it's a scam. When you look at the label, it's easy to see why they'd think that, since the ingredients are simply Sodium Chloride and water. If you didn't do so well in chemistry class, Sodium Chloride is actually the scientific name for table salt.

Is Asea Really a Salt Water Scam?

In the beginning, my impression was similar to many people in that I thought this product was just a slick way for Asea to package something common and market it as an exciting new health supplement, still, rather than stopping there, like a great number of people choose to do, I made the decision to do my own research.

Asea Reactive Molecules

The science driving their premier product is based on two types of natural substances that are produced by our bodies and are known as "reactive molecules". These compounds have two main purposes in the body:

* Slow down the body's natural aging process by activating antioxidants that are already present.
* Support your immune system to aid in restorative healing by being able to help repair the damage caused to cells by free radicals.

As you may have noticed, these elements are extremely important for your body in order to maintain a level of good health, however through things such as stress, poor nutrition, and the everyday toxins you are exposed to, our body starts to generate far fewer of these kinds of vital molecules. Not good, right?

Where Asea came in is they took over 16 years of research into these molecules (aka Redox Signaling Molecules) and solved the primary challenge of being able to produce stable molecules outside of the body. The outcome is a particularly interesting product which, as you can see, people are quick to refer to as some sort of "Asea scam", rather than finding the time to carry out a bit of research.

Asea's Leadership Team

When researching an organization like Asea, it's essential to take into account the expertise of its management team in order to get an idea of the future growth and longevity potential of a new business. Asea's founders, Verdis Norton and James Pack, bring a 50+ year combined history as high level executives in major corporations such as, respectively, Kraft Foods, and a number of organizations taking part in the telecommunications industry.

It's unclear if they have any prior expertise in the MLM industry, which is something that I definitely watch out for in a business. There are a number of instances of organizations previously who decided to leave network marketing, and my opinion is that may be partially because when the corporate leadership doesn't have industry experience, it's easy for members of a non-industry savvy board to simply say, "why don't we give something else a go?" The very last thing you'd want is a board to suddenly decide to take away the livelihood you’ve been working so hard to build.

Due to the demand for the sort of products created by Asea, I wouldn't expect it to be a problem.

Asea Compensation Plan

Asea makes use of a traditional binary compensation plan which means your business is built with two independent "legs" (kind of like an inverted peace sign). Each calendar month you will earn a 10% commission from the number of sales of the smaller leg with supplemental bonuses being paid depending on the volume of your sales. These include:

* Retail Sales Differential (which is the amount left over after the wholesale price is deducted from the retail price)
* Preferred Customer Bonus ($25 each and every time one of your favored consumers purchases a specific amount of one product at the $120 wholesale price)
* Fast Start Bonus
* The Director's Bonus ($50 bonus each time an Associate you've personally sponsored accomplishes the position of Director)
* Check Match Bonus
* A leadership Pool Bonus (Asea holds back 2% of the total company sales volume for their leading Associates)

The lack of real world teaching may be leading to unsuccessful distributors calling this an Asea Scam.

To be fair, most of the network marketing companies give the customary MLM training of "produce a checklist of all your family and friends, and invite all of them to a hotel meeting each and every week until eventually they enroll or avoid taking your calls, then repeat the process." It isn't that this method won't work, considering that's precisely how many of these six and seven figure businesses were being built in the 70's and 80's, but the truth is this particular method isn't actually the best strategy for everybody. Sure, if you carry a great deal of sway with your family and friends, this is a highly successful approach in order to build your Asea business.

Where companies similar to Asea are lacking is in not offering adequate coaching on the way to properly market your company by using methods like social media and the web. My advice is to get a coach who is successfully setting up a business venture, online and offline, who can explain to you the required steps to develop an absolute dynasty for your family and yourself by utilizing a real network marketing system.

(Please note: I'm not affiliated with Asea in any way and I am providing my opinion that Asea is not a scam, and is a legitimate business based upon my 10 year background in this industry.)
