Now Lifestyle Review - Legit or Scam?

There is quite a bit of confusion around Now lifestyle on the internet as older reviews will differ and people are not sure what it is all about. With this review, we will have a look at the latest developments around the platform in 2020 and see if it is worth the effort. 

Let's clear up the confusion first; The program was founded in 2017 as an MLM health/fitness-based program where you would promote products around the fitness niche. It was revamped in 2020 towards the marketing niche, now selling digital products geared towards online marketing.

Now Lifestyle - Pros


You get separate email lists, one for the reseller part of the program, and one for the digital part of the program. Basically, an email for everything Now Lifestyle product-related and one for whatever else you are promoting. 

Now Lifestyle is an all-in-one program, with features and tools for every aspect. 

Free hosting is included. 

There are training videos for all of the tools, offered by Now Lifestyle, and they are separated into tabs rather than lists. 

You do not have to use the tools to promote Now Lifestyle, they can be used to promote other programs/products as well. 


Cons 

The health and fitness part of the program was shelved and no longer plays a role. 

The prices of "Now Acadamy" are a bit on the steep side and newbs with little money will most likely not be able to afford it even tho they are the ones needing it the most.  

My Personal Opinion...

The MLM industry is not the most solid there is, one day it is working and the next day it is a total failure. Only takes a few key players to withdraw, for the deck of cards to collapse. Hence why you do not mess with it when it is working fine. The old version of Now Lifestyle had a good thing going, was unique, and had an opportunity in different ways. The health and fitness niche is always a good pick even tho it is competitive. One can explore a huge variety of marketing methods to make it work. For example: with health and fitness, one can become the niche by doing videos, blog posts, social pages, and so forth, documenting one's own journey with the fitness/health program. Now, Now lifestyle went back to the "online marketing" niche which is already saturated as it is. And what is more confusing to me is the fact that Joel already has a program called Pure Leverage that is similar, could've just upgraded that one. 

The drastic change is NOT GOOD for affiliate marketers. We have a habit to set up a system(s) that provides for years of traffic/leads. Example;  Handing out free ebooks on multiple platforms that contain our affiliate links or setting up guest posts on other websites, to only name a few.  With drastic changes like these, it is not worth the effort to focus on long term marketing with the program. In other words, "If I promoted Now Lifestyle, this change would have rendered years of hard work useless. 

To sum it up; Joel always provides good marketing tools, been doing it for a long time. If your aim is to use the tools, then you cannot go wrong. However, when it comes to promoting the program, I am still a bit skeptical, as I mentioned above. I do not like to promote any type of program that is not solid and change too drastic for my own marketing strategies obviously. However, if you have a niche that is more open to change and know how to adapt your marketing strategy, then it could work out just fine. You will have to be the judge of that one.
