The Lowdown on ZamZuu – An Independent Review

zam zuu

Why read this ZamZuu Review?

If you are reading this article, you may be researching ZamZuu to gain knowledge of the company and opportunity to determine if it’s a good fit for you. Alternatively, you may be in the direct sales industry and looking for a new company. Whatever the case, you’ve come to the right place to learn the facts about the company.

I want to state up front that I am not a ZamZuu distributor, however I have fifteen years experience in the network marketing industry so I’ve reviewed a lot of companies over the years.  My knowledge of the company stems from discussions with distributors that are affiliated with the company that I mentor and independent research using a variety of internet resources.  As a result, you can feel confident that the information presented will be completely unbiased.

Company Overview

ZamZuu began operations in January 2010 and is an offshoot of YTB, Inc.  At the time of this writing, Scott Tomer is the CEO of the company. The company’s primary focus is on e-commerce or online shopping. Reps pay nothing to join the company and they sell licenses which cost $49.95/month.  A person that purchases a license is called a Broker.  Brokers give away e-commerce websites to Free Agents (people interested in shopping and earning money for online purchases).  Brokers can have an unlimited number of  Free Agents who are encouraged to share their websites with other people so they too can shop.

Product Overview


The e-commerce website allows customers to shop from more than 700 stores such as Macy’s, Sears, Best Buy, Nordstrom, Barnes and Noble, Gap, Staples, Home Depot, to name a few.  Customers will sometimes receive instant discounts, incentives, coupons, or free shipping on online purchases they make. Additionally, travel, financial services, insurance, wireless and educational services are also available through their e-commerce site.

The cost of a license is $49.95/month and due to the nature of the business, there is no auto-ship. The license provides:

  • Web hosting for the e-commerce site and support for an unlimited number of Free Agents
  • Access to billions of dollars of goods and services for the free agents and their customers
  • Sales reports, commission tracking and payment
  • Home office support

ZamZuu Compensation Plan

Reps receive bonuses on license sales, residual income on monthly license fees and overrides on Free Agent product sales.  Free Agents receive 30% of the commission earned by ZamZuu on purchases made through their websites.  Brokers also receive a 100% match on the commission paid to their Free Agents.  Additionally, at the sales director level you can qualify for company paid health and life insurance once you meet criteria of 500 licenses sold by you and your team.

What It Takes To Succeed in ZamZuu

ZamZuu is a viable business and people do make money. Your success in this company is going to depend on the number of people that you can recruit to become Brokers as well as the number of people that you and your Brokers acquire as Free Agents.  You will also need to develop leadership skills and knowledge of the network marketing industry to develop your team and help them grow into the leadership roles of director, senior sales director, executives sales director, etc.

What ZamZuu Won’t Tell You

In my discussions with ZamZuu reps, they are still taught to use traditional MLM recruiting methods (i.e. contacting your warm market) to build their businesses.  The reality is most people will quickly go through their “warm market” contacts or just won’t feel comfortable contacting them because of previous experience with another network marketing company.  As a result, they run out of people to talk to and their businesses slow down or come to a complete halt.

If you are considering building a ZamZuu business and want to have success, it’s important to have an consistent number of  INTERESTED people that you can approach about your business.  I can tell you from personal experience and also from talking to countless MLM’ers that your warm market list is not going to be large enough to sustain your business building efforts long-term.  That’s why I learned to use online marketing and recruiting strategies to build my business. It has provided me with an unlimited number of people to talk to who are actually looking for a home business.

Interested in Generating Leads For Your ZamZuu Business?

I now teach other network marketers to use the same strategies and techniques regardless of the company that they are affiliated with. If you are considering partnering with ZamZuu, I highly recommend that you incorporate Internet marketing into your recruiting strategy. It will help you more than you can imagine. Check out my MLM Online Training Program to learn the online marketing and recruiting strategies that I use to build my business.

All the best to you,

This is MLM Not Corporate America!

I worked in corporate America for 17 years in various management positions in accounting, finance and even sales. Additionally, I’ve been involved in the MLM industry for 15 years, so I’ve been on both sides of the fence so to speak.  Here’s the reality, MLM and corporate America are very different!

One of the things that I find myself saying a lot is “This is MLM not corporate America.”  I say this often because so many people who join our industry are accustomed to working a job and adapting to the philosophy that exists in many companies.  They have what I refer to as “job mentality.” 

Let me be clear I’m not knocking  jobs, just merely pointing out that there is a big difference between working for someone else and running your own MLM business.  To be successful in our industry you must adapt to the culture that exists in network marketing which is very different from corporate America.
