There has been a lot of buzz about Kangen water ionizers in the water ionizer community. Retailers and critics alike have varied opinions about Kangen water ionizers, both positive and negative, but we will give you an unbiased view of the issue and help you to decide if Kangen water ionizers are for you.

Kangen  Ionizers – The Branding

“Kangen water” is the term that Kangen uses to describe the water their ionizers produce. Honestly, it is really a marketing tactic to build awareness and popularity of their products. The fact is that Kangen water is really ionized water, which can be alkaline or acidic water. As you’ve read on other pages, alkaline water is excellent for internal use and acidic water is great for external use. There are many health benefits to ionized water, so you can see why Kangen would want their name to be associated with those health benefits.

Companies that are competing with Enagic and Kangen water ionizers disapprove of this strategy, and make many negative comments about Kangen water ionizers…you’ve probably seen a few of those comments, but the fact is that Kangen has a smart marketing strategy, labeling the water their ionizers produce as “Kangen water”. Kangen water ionizers are considered the best ionizers in the world, they produce Kangen water, so Kangen water is the best in the world! Think of it like this, everyone would want a Rolls Royce, and the Rolls Royce Power, but if you walk into a Ford dealership and say you want “Rolls Royce Power”, they’re sure to get a little upset, right? It’s the same concept here.

Most of the websites that contain any negative comments were created by Kangen’s competitors, so of course they will trash Kangen water ionizers as much as they can in order to promote their own product. But, trashing the competition is an ill-mannered, crude and boorish marketing strategy.

 Their Water Ionizers – The Strategy

Kangen employs an MLM strategy to market their water ionizers. MLM stands for Multi-Level-Marketing. MLM is basically a “word-of-mouth” strategy. The people that sell Kangen water ionizers are compensated in two ways:

1. They receive compensation for sales that they personally make.
2. They recruit others to sell the product, and receive a commission on every sale that recruit makes. This creates a “downline”, the higher up you are on line, the more commission you make on the recruits below you.

MLMs are a very powerful way of spreading a message, and Kangen has used this strategy to greatly increase the awareness of water ionizers, their uses and the health benefits. If it wasn’t for the parent company building this awareness about ionized water, many other water ionizer companies would simply not exist.
