Opportunity Testimonial Guidelines

Opportunity Testimonial Guidelines

WRITTEN OPPORTUNITY TESTIMONIALS

 

Generally speaking, an opportunity testimonial is any claim that conveys or implies a specific level or range of actual/potential sales or income, lifestyle purchases that are related to income earned, or an announcement of compensation describing the earnings of any current or past salesperson. For a more comprehensive definition of what constitutes an opportunity testimonial (or Earnings Representation), please visit the official DSA website at dsa.org.

 

Opportunity testimonials should not make or imply any claims regarding the opportunity that are false or misleading or that are otherwise in violation of our policies and procedures. Opportunity testimonials should describe how the Nu Skin business has positively impacted your life, while following these guidelines:

 

1. Include your name and market.
2. Disclose that you are a Nu Skin distributor.
3. Provide the company’s most recent Distributor Compensation Summary with any claims regarding bonus commissions.
4. Comply with all requirements of the Policies and Procedures.
5. Be on point and concise.

INCOME CLAIMS

 

To provide complete information and realistic expectations concerning the opportunity associated with being a distributor, all claims regarding bonus commissions must comply with these guidelines:

 

1. Claims must be accurate and not misleading.

 

2. Claims must be based on your actual experience or bonus commissions and cannot exceed the averages found in the Distributor Compensation Summary.

 

3. Claims or representations of retail profits cannot be used.

 

4. You must provide the most recent Distributor Compensation Summary in immediate proximity to any explicit or implied claims regarding bonus commissions. Alternatively, you may provide the company-approved disclaimer below* with a link to the most recent Distributor Compensation Summary.


Generating meaningful compensation as a Distributor requires considerable time, effort, and commitment. This is not a get rich quick program, there are no guarantees of financial success and results will vary widely among participants. A complete summary of earnings at each level in the Sales Compensation Plan can be found here.


5. These appropriate disclosures must be provided in connection with meeting presentations, social media posts, PowerPoint presentations, and any other place where earnings are discussed or otherwise presented.

 

 

DO NOT make representations or claims regarding total sales revenue and/or gross sales for your distributorship or those in your upline/downline.

 

DO NOT make any claims regarding the amount of time required to reach specific pin titles or compensation levels.

 

DO NOT exhibit actual or facsimile checks from Nu Skin.

 

DO NOT offer or imply any guarantee of success or income, including guarantees related to following a system.

LIFESTYLE AND INCOME CLAIMS

 

DO NOT use images of yachts, private planes or jets, high-end luxury cars, homes, or similar items to make or imply claims regarding bonus commissions as only a few distributors earn enough to afford these items solely through the Nu Skin opportunity.

 

DO NOT make claims or imply that the opportunity can help pay for things like groceries, children’s activities, medical expenses, car/house payments, or childcare.

 

DO NOT reshare, retweet, or “like” items inconsistent with these guidelines.

 

DO NOT encourage people to quit jobs or school, take out loans, or incur debt.

 

Discussions of the Nu Skin opportunity should emphasize the importance of developing customers and selling product to create a healthy, long-term business.
