In my soon to be released book on The 5 Key Essentials In Picking A Network Marketing Company, I talk about products. Having a unique product is vital for long term success in Network Marketing. That point apparently rubbed a MonaVie representative the wrong way.
After I offered my opinion about MonaVie, I was told that I didn’t know anything and that no product compares with MonaVie in the marketplace which lead me do a little research where I found a comparison of MonaVie with a product called Perfect Acai.
I have no affiliation with Perfect Acai (or MonaVie), but I thought the information presented was interesting:
How much Acai is in your product?
Perfect Acai contains 1,000mg (1 gram) of 100% freeze dried Sambazon Organic Acai per serving. There are 60 servings in a bottle. Most clients do 2 servings a day, so they get 2 grams of Acai per day and 1 bottle last 30 days.
Unknown. Monavie is a proprietary blend of 19 fruits and there is no way to know how much Acai is in each serving.
What is the source of your Acai?
Perfect Acai exclusively uses Sambazon 100% Freeze Dried Organic Acai. Sambazon Acai is Fairly Traded. Sambazon Acai is certified organic and is a member of the Fair Trade Federation.
Unknown. A review of the Monavie website and promotional material does not state where they purchase their Acai from.
What is the price per serving of your product?
One serving is 2 capsules and there are 120 capsules in a bottle. One bottle is $39.95 and if you buy 3 bottles the price drops down to $29.95 a bottle. One serving of Perfect Acai will cost between 50 and 67 cents.
One bottle of Monavie juice is 25.35 ounces and cost about $45. One serving is 2 ounces. The cost per serving of the Monavie juice is about $3.55.
To be fair, MonaVie has other juices plus the active version contains glucosamine. In my research I also found dozens of comparable Acai liquid products, similar to MonaVie. You can see these on Google.
