Have you seen your friend posting about The Rural Freedom Movement on social media?
It’s blowing up here in Australia. 😲
Heaps of Queenslanders are in on it…
And it’s mainly targetted towards rural women and ’empowering them’ to become ‘entrepreneurs’.
But how? And what is it all about?
And let me guess – you’re a bit skeptical.
In this article, I’ll spill the beans and cut right to the chase.
The Rural Freedom Movement Review
The Rural Freedom Movement is a large group started by Kylie Stevenson who makes the bulk of her income online.
Selling a high ticket product.
The Rural Freedom Movement is a social media and MLM training company that discreetly partners with Enagic. They sell kitchen alkaline water machine packages for $7,000 up to $20,000 for the ‘trifecta’ package.
That’s how they make their big money off each other… 🚩
They want you signed up as soon as possible! The commissions here are HUGE.
Your friend could make a few thousand just for signing you up! 💰 (Did you know that? 😉)
And if you don’t have the cash, then Enagic distributors often encourage each other to go into debt.
Yes, credit cards and personal loans *gulp*
To me, that isn’t freedom or empowerment at all. That can put any individual backwards financially, as most can’t recoup their initial investment.
But this group, my gosh they think differently. 🤷🏻♂️
Social Media Strategies
Members of The Rural Freedom Movement rarely talk about selling water machines.
You see, there’s a big stigma around it.
Instead, they talk about building a high profit income online and your own ‘business’
By using the term ‘affiliate marketing’…
This way, you’ll remain blissfully unaware.
What they’re doing is network marketing, NOT affiliate marketing. They’re two very different things.
Remember Amway? Same same, but different.
So yeah, they creatively disguise their direct involvement with these expensive water machines from Asia.
That’s why you see countless posts, videos and quotes about building ‘legacy income’ and all that.
They don’t want you to know about the actual thing they’re selling (water machines) because it’s all about the lifestyle.
Show off your luxury lifestyle and freedom, as well as your rags to riches story… 😎
And social media is the perfect place to do it.
It’s a smart tactic! And way less embarassing than outright selling these expensive water machines to your friends and family.
It’s A Pyramid Scheme?
The Rural Freedom Movement isn’t a pyramid scheme at all. It’s a network marketing training company that teaches women (and some men) about social media strategies on how to sell pricey water machines to other people. This is because Enagic’s own marketing material is pretty lackluster.
However, some people do claim that Enagic itself might be a scam.
Check out this video by highly respected YouTuber Scott Shafer:
Now, despite plenty of backlash about pyramid schemes and Mult-Level Marketing online, Kylie’s group continues to do well for itself.
(9,000+ active members and growing in their FB group the last time I was in there)
Kylie initially started in The Freedom Era and just 2 years ago, started her own training company and community.
If you get involved, then it’s best to pitch this to men and women who aren’t able to do 5 minutes of research online.
Those who are the most desperate to ‘make it’ online are the best prospects here. 🤑 Critical thinking won’t be on their mind.
But if on the other hand, you don’t feel 100% about getting involved at all, then congrats! Deep down, you know that something doesn’t feel right about this business model.
Kinda feels like a regional online cult… 🤔 (But a very happy one at that)
Now, don’t share my thoughts with those who are recruiting you. They’ll think I’m a negative hater, when I’m just being transparent about how they operate and what they ultimately sell. What you do from this point onwards is totally your choice. ✌️ No hate here.
I just wish they could be open and honest about what they’re ultimately trying to do to you. And because I’ve chosen to be honest and show you the elephant in the room, I’ll be their public enemy #1.
How Much Can You Make?
The Rural Freedom Movement won’t really disclosure what you’ll make, but they often talk about reaching the rank of 6A within the company.
It’s the ‘holy grail’ but in reality, it isn’t that great.
Fortunately, Enagic does provide an annual earnings disclosure…and it’s pretty ordinary. 😔
Here is the 2020 US Earnings Disclosure Statement from Enagic:
|Rank||# Sellers||% Sellers||Median $ Earned|
Note: The last row (6A2-6) includes higher ranks. This table isn’t a promise of earnings.
Keep in mind that this doesn’t include your initial outlay for the water machine. This is also from 2020 when people were at home and were more desperate than ever before.
There’s no doubt that Kylie has risen to some serious high-earning ranks within Enagic, but as we can see from this table, very few others ever do.
Do your research. There’s plenty of information online about Enagic, both good and bad.
Your friend who’s trying to sign you up isn’t interested in sharing the bad stuff, especially when they’re so so close to making a big-ticket commission. 😉
(PSA: That’s how the money is generally made – friends signing up friends)
Kylie didn’t make the big bucks overnight either. She started years ago in Enagic and played the long game to get to where she is today. It’s the same with many top earners selling Kangen water machines.
The coaches and trainers are almost all Enagic distributors who may earn a commission if they get you signed up. Keep that in mind as you delve deep and try to ask more questions.
I haven’t shared any real negativity here. Just the facts in a fun way.
I’ve chosen not to talk about the drama that goes on behind the scenes in MLM schemes. Nor have I talked about the big financial losses that people experience all the time.
Or even the narcissistic people that are typically involved in these things.
Like I said earlier, if you want to sign up, the choice is yours. 👍 Go for it.
Play the long game as it takes several years to make the big bucks online. And there are plenty of online businesses or careers you can get started with that don’t require awkward stories and staged photos on social media.
But if have limited talent and enjoy selling to friends and family, then MLMs could work for you.
I’ll see you on a beach somewhere. 🙂
