Inside this article, I’ll summarize the important points associated with Sisel, supply you with an honest Sisel review and then provide you important points to consider when signing up for any kind of home-based marketing enterprise, either related to selecting the correct company and also experiencing financial success in Sisel or any other enterprise you decide to enroll in.
What is Sisel?
Sisel International was founded in 2006 by Tom Mower with the purpose of taking over the market in both personal care products and nutritional supplements. Sisel is a strange word, but it stands for: Science, Innovation, Success, Energy, and Longevity. This is used as the foundation for the company mission. Sisel is currently open for business in 21 countries with a plan for rapid expansion, a definite plus, at least as network marketing is traditionally viewed. The company offers an international compensation plan that helps to avoid some of the normal problems that people have when many network marketing companies go international.
Sisel is reported to put a strong emphasis on research to “find products unlike what the world has seen”. While this might be true, it is somewhat of a bold statement and is sometimes considered to be a bit more hype than substance. Time will tell on this one, but there is certainly something positive to consider about them taking up that mission, as long as it is followed up with action. Therein lies the problem much of the time with health and wellness network marketing companies, how do you know what to believe when it comes to the effectiveness of the products? Having said that, on their website they describe their commitment to the use of “evidence-based nutraceutical ingredients, known to be of scientifically-proven biological value, in the most concentrated strength and form possible, combined with other synergistic ingredients to achieve maximum results.” Again, it sounds good, but it is always tough to tell. The bigger question you need to ask yourself is, “are Sisel’s products something that I can truly put myself behind?” This is a question that only you can answer!
Sisel offers a wide range of products from nutritional supplements, to diet aids, personal care products, laundry detergent to even watches! Some like they are running the gambit, but for the purposes of this review, I will focus on the nutritional supplements as this is my area of personal expertise (if you don’t know me, I am a research scientist doing obesity research).
“Triangle of Life”
This is a core of 3 products that Sisel promotes as their answer to promote longevity. The “triangle of life” is making a bit of a bold claim here, because none of the active ingredients in these products has solid science behind them that show that you can actually extend maximal lifespan. This doesn’t mean that there aren’t health benefits, but the longevity claim is a bit bold!
Eternity- this is a drink that is composed of Resveratrol, Quercetin, Catechins and Polyphenols and the company claim that these “will help your body become very energetic, weight loss is a side effect, and possibility of living decades longer.” They claim that this product is different compared to anything else out there because of the dosage in the product, but one thing we don’t know about products like this is whether or not more is better. With this in mind, the research on these types of supplements provides no evidence at all that you can extend your life for decades! However, as I said, there are health benefits related to these products, but the jury is still out.
Fucoydon – this product is described a something that can regenerate your body at the cellular level and boost immunity. It is unclear what is in this product, but this again sounds too good to be true!
SpectraMaxx – this appears to be a mix of general vitamin and minerals, which may be helpful, especially if your diet is deficient.
Overall, these products may have good practical worth because people are always looking for improved health and this seems to offer a “healthy life in a bottle”. You have to ask yourself before you join if you are interested in getting into the business of convincing people about the fact that these products will make someone more healthy, but this is up to you! Something to consider is that these 3 products run roughly ~$180 per month, whereas a product similar to Eternity, POM Wonderful, has solid science behind it and costs $30 per month. So can you justify the cost?
Enrollment Options and Compensation Plan
Now that we have talked about the products, what about the business side? You can become a Sisel International distributor by paying an initial start-up cost and then maintaining a monthly autoship. No surprise here, this is the norm for network marketing companies and isn’t really too much to think about. The compensation operates on a unilevel platform and provides 5 different ways you can make money. All in all, the compensation is set-up well to allow you to make some serious money, there is also some talk about because they have their manufacturing on site, they are able to operate on larger margins and pass some of those savings down to the compensation plan – both great news for the distributors. Of course, the products and the plan don’t make the business, as an independent business owner in Sisel, or any network marketing company for that matter, you need to consider the team you are working with and your ability to build a network.
Tom Mower Sr., President and Co-Founder
Tom has his hands in just about everything in Sisel. Since the 1970’s Tom has had several marketing positions and was able to work his way to advancing to the head of R&D, Corporate Trainer, and National Sales Manager is some of his businesses that he was involved with. Pretty impressive guy! Tom got going with an industrial cleaning supply company in 1980 which manufactured and distributed products to major commercial and industrial accounts. Later in the 80’s, Tom founded a network marketing company called Neways, that specialized in personal care products and in 2006 Tom sold Neways in order to start-up Sisel International and introduced nutritional supplements into the fold. Tom has a science background, although I’m not how much research he has actually done, and has been a very successful marketer, an interaction that would definitely contribute to keeping Sisel solvent, while providing good products at the same time. Tom has also served as a philanthropist and most certainly seems like a guy worth getting behind.
Tom Mower Jr., Chief Executive Officer
As CEO and Co-Founder, Tom Mower Jr. is the sheriff of sorts that oversees the general operations of the manufacturing and on-site facilities. Tom Jr, was involved in his fathers growth of Neways and has been with his dad all the way through the development of Sisel. Tom has a bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Utah and according to their website he is an accomplished scientist, but this does seem a bit bold, as most undergraduates don’t get much of a scientific background, specifically from a research perspective. Either way, he has been an integral component to his father’s success and the development of Sisel.
I hope this Sisel Review was helpful and remember your success in network marketing almost always comes down to what you put into it yourself above and beyond the product hype, or the strength at the corporate office.
