A Review on Isagenix International - The Network Marketing Business Opportunity
December 13, 2008 10:50 PM
Isagenix was founded in March of 2002. This
network marketing company markets a
wide variety of health and nutritional related products. Their product line is
based on a three step guiding principle: cleanse, replenish and revitalize.
This network marketing company has two areas of focus that it considers as a
competitive advantage. Their first focus is their product line where they
stress a high level of quality and effectiveness. Their second focus is their
compensation plan where they stress profitability and ease to understand
Isagenix - The Product Line
Isagenix offers a number of health related products. Its premier product is
known as the Cleanse For Life program. The formula is designed to increase
energy, reduce weight and balance digestion.
The company offers a wide variety of food related products such as shakes,
soups, bars and snacks. All of these foods are designed to reduce cravings so
that the customer can enjoy weight loss.
The company also has a skin care line as well. The lineup is designed to improve
skin care by making it smoother, reducing the signs of aging and other benefits.
Isagenix Compensation Plan
There are five ways you can make money in the Isagenix compensation plan.
The first way is through retail sales. When you sign up as a distributor you
get access to the product line at wholesale prices. You can turn around and
sell the product retail. The difference that you earn is considered profit.
The wholesale price is 30 to 40% lower than the retail price.
The second way you get paid is in the form of Product Introduction Bonuses.
When you recruit a new associate into Isagenix and that associate purchases a
product introduction package, you receive a bonus of anywhere from $10 to $80
one time depending on which package they order.
As an example, if your distributor ordered one Cleansing President's Pack, which
is their most comprehensive package, you would receive a $80 bonus.
The third way you get paid is off the sales made from the Isagenix distributors
on your team. Isagenix has a binary compensation plan. This occurs when you
recruit at least two representatives who will make up
the left and right side of your binary compensation plan.
Isagenix pays on cycles. To accumulate a cycle you need to accumulate 900
points total. You can count 600 points from your strongest leg and 300 points
on your weakest leg. Points accumulate until these numbers are reached.
One these numbers are reached, 600 points gets deducted from the total points in
your strongest leg and 300 points from your weakest legs. You get to keep the
remaining points left over if any and you earn $54.
As an example, if your first leg signs up 2 new distributors who each orders the
President's Pak (worth 300 points each) and your second leg signs up 1 new
distributor who also orders the pack, that will earn you $54.
You also earn an Executive bonus as long as you can maintain at least 5
distributors on both sides of the binary that order 100 points worth of product
a month. These are distributors that you personally enroll. Whatever they
make, you make 10% of that amount.
Isagenix Business Disadvantages
There are a number of disadvantages to the Isagenix program that you need to be
The health and nutritional market is a highly competitive marketplace. You may
have a customer on the Isagenix products only to find out that they have
canceled their order because they found something comparable or cheaper.
With a binary compensation plan you can lose out on a lot of money if you
recruit a superstar distributor. Even though that distributor is bringing in a
lot of volume, your weaker leg may not be keeping up. As such you lose out on
the cycle counts.
One thing that Isagenix does do that is better than most binaries is they allow
you to continue to accumulate the points until you lose them. Therefore once
the second leg starts to catch up, you will get paid on that volume eventually.
Is CarbonCopyPro The Right Network Marketing Opportunity For You -by Kevin Thomas
26, 2008 10:50 PM
CarbonCopyPro is the internet marketing arm for a company called Wealth Masters
International, which is a network marketing company that specializes in
financially based educational products and services that are geared towards
empowering and educating its members on how to take charge of their own
financial futures. Many of the problems our economy faces today are a direct
result of mismanagement of personal as well as company finances.
CarbonCopyPro is based on the
concepts of Magnetic Sponsoring, but
where Magnetic Sponsoring is generic in
its design and can be used to market any product, CarbonCopyPro is specifically
designed to market Wealth Masters International. There is an upfront application
fee of $37.00 dollars before joining the company, and an entrepreneurial
questionnaire that you have fill out before you're accepted into the
opportunity. Sort of a way to let them know if you are serious about the
business and becoming an entrepreneur. Once your application is approved you are
then set up with a user name and password to access the system.
Business In A Box
Even though CarbonCopyPro is not generic they do offer a product called business
in a box or BIB for short. It's a product that they sell for $395.00 dollars and
is well worth the money. It comes with two training manuals and three DVD's. The
first manual welcomes you to the CarbonCopyPro system and is designed to set you
up with a plan to get started with your business. It also introduces you to the
different levels of the Wealth Masters International business opportunity as
well as how to set up your account in your back office. The second manual is
your definitive guide to marketing online with the CarbonCopyPro marketing
system, or as they call it marketing 101.There is also a 30 day journal
marketing guide to help you keep track of your progress as you move forward with
your business. The DVD's are as follows.
DVD#1) Millionaire Mindset.
DVD#2)Understanding Online Marketing.
DDVD#3)Web 2.0 Mastery.
You'll also get a free DVD a couple of days later titled "Inside Out" your
million dollar game plan, an exclusive interview with Jay Kubassek founder of
the CarbonCopyPro and network marketing industry leader
author of Magnetic Sponsoring and
MLM Traffic Formula.
Business in a box is surely packed with cutting edge internet network marketing
instruction and information. It can also be a great way to earn while you learn
and generate some income before joining the primary product line of Wealth
Masters International. The commission fees for the sale of one unit is $200.00;
not bad considering the initial cost is $395.00 dollars for the product itself.
CarbonCopyPro: Getting Started
Once you are accepted into the CarbonCopyPro opportunity you'll find that the
instructions are well laid out and easy to follow. Included in your back office
is your own personal startup guide, excellent support and encouragement from
your sponsor, and a massive 30 day action marketing plan. Another great resource
CarbonCopyPro members can take advantage of are the daily coaching and training
calls hosted by leaders within the company.
For those people who are serious about becoming an internet entrepreneur
CarbonCopyPro provides all the tools necessary. These resources are constantly
being updated as the internet continues to evolve. Besides the obvious learning
curve which of course is determined by each individual situation, whether full
time or part time anyone can be successful with this system.
While CabonCopyPro is not a franchise, it does have many similarities. After 20
years of being an offline franchise owner myself, my advice if you're just
beginning with your online business aspirations, is to familiarize yourself with
at least the basics of online marketing and developing an entrepreneurial
mindset. A great site to help you to do this would be
This opportunity is for serious entrepreneurs and business people only. It
requires persistence, determination and especially an abundance mindset, so if
you don't think you're ready at this point I wouldn't even consider it.
CarbonCopyPro is definitely positioning itself to be one of the top internet
marketing opportunities in the network marketing industry for years to come and
they're building a track record to prove it.

LifePath Unlimited Focuses on The 2 Most Important Factors in Achieving Success in Network Marketing -by Scott Hubbard
25, 2008 4:30 AM
LifePath Unlimited stands out as a network marketing company.
I've been in network marketing industry for almost 7 years now. I'll have to
admit that my first few years were a dismal failure.
But I look back upon those early years as a fantastic learning experience. I
have learned the 2 most important factors in achieving personal success in
internet and network marketing. First, you must believe in yourself. Secondly,
you must learn how to market your business in the most effective way.
II've looked at many network marketing opportunities in the last 7 years. One
stands out above all the others because it places emphasis on these two
factors. That company is LifePath Unlimited.
Listed below are the two factors which are the most critical in achieving
personal success in a home
based business. It also shows how LifePath Unlimited embraces both of them.
1. A Successful Internet Network Marketer Must
Believe in Himself
When I started my network marketing career, I had 20 years of experience as a
Chief Financial Officer. I thought that success would carry over easily into a
home business. I was wrong. Network marketing is a completely different
You must have a different mindset. You must have total confidence in yourself.
It took me some time to learn the accounting and finance skills I needed to
perform the duties of my CFO position. Likewise, it takes time to master the
proper mindset to use in your home business.
LifePath Unlimited is a personal development company that offers life-changing
products to its customers and associates.
The LifePath Product Line is Personal
Most network marketing companies recommend that you study personal development.
LifePath Unlimited is one of only a very few network marketing companies that
actually offers a superior product line in personal development. By marketing
this product line, an associate has the potential of earning a significant
current and residual income.
Almost everyone has heard of the very popular movie, "The Secret." LifePath
Unlimited picks up where "The Secret" leaves off by showing
how to apply the
Law of Attraction. It has positioned
itself in front of two of the most powerful trends in the business world today.
It is combining a stand-alone personal development product line with the massive
home based business market.
This product line helps you discover your full potential and transform your
personal and financial life into the best it can be. That is exactly what is
needed to be a successful internet network marketer.
The company focuses on applying the Law of Attraction. Its entry-level product,
the Discovery Series, includes a DVD "The Awakening" plus an 8 CD series.
This CD series includes 14 of the top personal development trainers in the
industry plus Patrick Combs who is a co-founder and Director of Product
Development for LifePath Unlimited. They provide their knowledge and insight on
each of the eight major topics included in the Discovery series. It also
includes a 56 day online interactive course which goes into these topics on a
Other products are the Breakthrough and Destiny conferences.
The bottom line - to be a successful internet network marketer, you must believe
in yourself. LifePath Unlimited teaches you how to do this. It is their
business. This is unlike other network marketing companies that only suggest
you get good personal development training.
2. A Successful Network Marketer Must Learn How
to Market Their Business in the Most Effective Way
You are maybe like me. My first few years in network marketing were spent
chasing after my family, friends, and acquaintances where I tried to get them to
join my business. I spent hours making cold calls to purchased lists of leads.
These methods fail for most networkers.
A major factor in attaining success in internet and network marketing is to
attract prospects to you using attraction marketing methods.
LifePath Unlimited is an "internet friendly" company. It encourages its
associates to promote themselves. It encourages them to get the best attraction
marketing training available. This detailed, step by step online training is
available at a very reasonable cost.
I feel that the success that LifePath Unlimited is having today is because of
its focus on these two factors.
Scott Hubbard spent 25 years as a Chief Financial Officer in Corporate America. His success in internet marketing has allowed him retire from his job.
He now enjoys teaching corporate executives and network marketers how to apply attraction marketing online and how to generate free qualified MLM leads on the internet. He is happy to give a free consultation for serious entrepreneurs.

income opportunity. There is a more entrepreneurial energy. With the world
economy as it is in the fourth quarter of 2008, many are looking to take their

Mannatech health and wellness products can readily be marketed online with the
Mannatech tools and your Internet marketing savviness.

Internet attraction marketing is a skill set anyone can learn. I have turned to
Renegade University and the
internet network marketing skills taught there by Mike Klingler and his team.
These skills will assist all Mannatech associates to market online.
Mannatech also provides more than personal health and wealth. Mannatech provides
purpose and the ability to give back. The value of this sense of contributing
somehow surpasses the material gains achieved with this business opportunity.

Positioned To Meet The Needs Of Today's Internet Network Marketers? -by Shelly Begarowicz
25, 2008 11:27 PM
Network marketing has come of age; the archaic prospecting methods of the past
are history. A new generation of internet network marketers demands a new kind
network marketing company.
One that is global in scope and meets the unique needs of attraction based
internet network marketers. Does iLearningGlobal have the "right stuff"?
The network marketing industry has broken out of
the dark ages of old school MLM and into the light of a new century.
Gone are the days of "mall crawling", "cold calling" and "the 3 foot rule".
With the advent of attraction marketing, the "when in doubt, shout it out"
mentality of network marketing is dead and buried. Thank goodness!
Internet attraction marketing allows us to be choosey about whom we partner
with. In fact, it forces us to be... and that doesn't mean only our downline. We
are learning to be choosey about the type of network marketing company we are
willing to partner with. And also the type of mlm training we want as well!
Is iLearningGlobal a network marketing company
for an internet world?
The internet has changed everything. For those willing to learn internet
marketing skills, it has leveled the playing field so we can now compete with
the "big guys".
Internet attraction marketing has also changed what network marketers look for
in top network marketing companies.
What today's internet network marketers need...
1. A company that operates on a global scale
2. A product that has broad based appeal
3. Competitive pricing and an easy to understand pay plan
4. A company that won't hamper their marketing efforts
5. Account access 24/7 via the internet
Does iLearningGlobal have what it takes to
succeed in today's global arena?
ILG is an online business with a personal learning/education product that is
available 24/7 to anyone with an internet connection.
Personal development and success modeling are the hallmarks of all successful...
ie. Rich... people. Successful people never stop learning.
This does not necessarily mean "formal" education. Actually formal "grade"
level has little to do with your personal or financial success. In fact, some
of the richest people in the world never finished school. Case in point...Bill
Gates dropped out of college. But did he stop learning? NO! Has he been
successful? Well... I'll let you answer that one.
For successful people life is an endless adventure of self improvement.
The iLearningGlobal.TV community is a center of independent learning. It is
helping people learn and improve themselves every day. They have assembled the
top trainers and speakers in all areas of self development, personal
improvement, business training, life skills, tax and financial strategies within

Strategies, Public Speaking to Networking Marketing, Goal Setting to Advertising
Strategies... There is something here for everyone.
The compensation plan is straight forward and easy to understand. There are no
legs to balance or matrixes to fill. You can enroll any number of people on
your first level and you earn a simple percentage of all the proceeds generated
by those under you.

a global network marketing company with a broad appeal e-product accessible from
anywhere one has internet access. ILG has risen to the challenge and met the
demands of internet network marketers head on. "When in doubt, shout it out"
marketing is well dead and buried for good. The network marketing industry has
indeed come of age and ILG is leading the charge into the future!

Kyani vs Tahitian Noni Which Network Marketing Opportunity Is Better?
November 16, 2008 12:47 PM
Since Kyani opened its doors in 2005 there are lots of comparisons made between the Kyani network marketing opportunity and many of the other juice opportunities. In particular, many of these comparisons have been directed at the Tahitian Noni opportunity.
The wholesale prices of the two juices are both about $30 a bottle if you purchase a $120 monthly autoship. They both retail for about $40 a bottle. However, Tahitian Noni has a number of knock offs that sell similar products for significantly less. There are several retailers where you can purchase similar Noni products for $10 a bottle.
Does Kyani or Tahitian Noni Cost More To Get Started?
To get started in Kyani there is a one time investment of $495 for a product start-up kit. You also have to order $120 worth of products a month.
Tahitian Noni is a one time investment of $35 as long as you stay on the $120 monthly autoship. If you cancel the autoship, the $35 charge becomes an annual fee. This makes the startup cost for Tahitian Noni significantly less than Kyani.
Both companies can be marketed by using internet network marketing strategies. The key is to focus on network marketing distributors who are unhappy by first providing quality content to help them build their business. As you build a relationship with them you will eventually be able to recruit some of them over to Kyani or Tahitian Noni.
Kyani 3x7 Matrix Compensation Plan vs Tahitian Noni 8 Level Uni-Level Compensation Plan
Kyani and Tahitian Noni have two completely different types of compensation plans. Both companies allow you to earn retail profits based on selling your products wholesale to a retail customer. Kyani's retail profits are significantly higher assuming you can move it at that price.
Kyani's team building compensation plan is based on a 3X7 forced matrix plan. What this means is that you can build 3 separate legs of distributors up to 7 levels deep. It will take a little over 2000 representatives to fill up the entire matrix.
You earn 3.5% off the wholesale orders of ALL distributors regardless of where they are in the Matrix. So each time a new distributor joins your team and gets in the $120 autoship you earn $4.20 a month. You also earn $50 for each distributor you personally sponsor at the $495 rate.
Kyani also pays you a $25 commission each time any of your personally sponsored representatives gets a new recruit at the $495 rate. Once you sponsor and maintain at least 3 active distributors you earn 50% of whatever they make and 100% of whatever they make once they each have 3 active distributors.
Tahitian Noni uses a Unilevel compensation plan that is 8 levels deep. This means you can sponsor as many legs as you want wide and you get paid on a maximum of 7 levels deep. You earn 20% on level 1, 5% on levels 2 4 and 10% on level 5 for each recruit's first 60 days.
After the first 60 days, you get paid on the volume of anywhere from 3 to 8 levels depending on what position you are in the compensation plan. You get 1% on level 1, 5% on levels 2-3, 6% on levels 4-5, 7% on levels 6-7 and 8% on level 8. If you are on the $120 autoship you will start off getting paid on at least 4 levels.
Which Network Marketing Company Is Better For You?
Kyani's compensation plan is more lucrative than Tahitian Noni's for most distributors. A Kyani distributor who recruits 10 reps earns $500 up-front plus $42 a month. A Tahitian Noni distributor who recruits 10 reps earns only $240 month 1, $240 month 2 and $12 each additional month assuming all 10 reps are placed on the 1st level.
If you're looking for the opportunity that is the safest and most secure, Tahitian Noni is the better opportunity. Kyani's been around for only 3 years so we don't know if they are going to make it. Tahitian Noni has been around for over 13 years so they have passed the critical 10 year mark.
However, if you're willing to take a greater risk to make greater income, Kyani's clearly the better opportunity. The money is greater and there is less competition from retailer knock offs.
Isagenix as Your Next Network Marketing Business: Should You Hitch Your Wagon? -by Becky Joubert
November 2, 2008 11:27 PM
Network Marketing businesses are being marketed from thousands of home based businesses.
Everybody has a Network Marketing business that wants one. Those that don't, think they know what they're missing.
Here's a look at a profitable, International Network Marketing company that markets world-class nutritional products, and more.
The Isagenix Overview: Isagenix is now recognized world wide for its healthy, non-toxic approach to nutrition and living. In the 6 years since Isagenix was founded, the network marketing company has surpassed 500 million in sales; created over 20 millionaires, and has helped more than 114 people lose more than 100 pounds, and 7 people lose more than 200 pounds. That only accounts for weight loss; not improved health and wellness.
This Network Marketing company is the world's leader in nutritional cleansing. Isagenix offers systems for weight loss, long term wellness, and skincare, utilizing only the finest world class ingredients to go into their products. They have a "no-compromise" approach to quality.
It is a privately owned company founded by Dr. John Anderson, a Master Formulator, who has created more than 2300 nutritional products for over 600 companies; and now puts his name on Isagenix.
Isagenix has a 62,000 sq.ft. facility in Chandler, Arizona and is open for business in the US, Canada, Puerto Rico, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Australia, and New Zealand. They have experienced a 296% growth increase over the last 4 years, with 200,000 members worldwide. These are not shabby figures considering the multitude of nutritional Network Marketing companies.
Dr John Gray, PhD (Men are From Mars, Women are from Venus), and Jack Canfield (Chicken Soup for the Soul, and The Secret), have both been a part of Isagenix since 2003 and write about Isagenix in their books. It always helps to have famous people involved!
The Isagenix Philosophy: Isagenix philosophy is based on assisting the bodies' ability to naturally remove toxins and impurities using organic nutrients. Co-founders Jim and Kathy Coover say the Isagenix vision is "to impact world health and free people from physical and financial pain, and in the process create the largest health-and-wellness company in the world."
Nutritional cleansing is an ancient tradition that has been practiced throughout history in order to rejuvenate and de-toxify the body naturally. Benefits of cleansing include long term weight loss, mental clarity, increased energy, and optimum health. It is considered to be the missing link!
Isagenix Products and Compensation
Isagenix products bring optimum health, while the compensation plan helps to set associates financially free. It is an unbeatable combination of opportunity and product. The founding principle behind their cutting-edge products is Cleanse, Replenish and Revitalize.
The Isagenix nutrient-dense products enable customers as well as associates to achieve optimum health because of the quality of the ingredients and the nutrients involved. Since it is factually known that the majority of our foods are "dead" foods and nutritionally deficit, it stands to reason that consuming "live" whole foods with organic nutrients selected for their health benefits will rejuvenate every cell in our body from the inside out.
The Isagenix binary compensation plan is very easy to understand, and is one of the most generous plans in the network marketing industry. You can make money from referring, retailing, residual income, and bonuses. Understanding compensation plans can be difficult. Look for a company that provides several different ways to earn. Contests with trips, prizes and cash are big incentives!
The Decision Joining a Network Marketing company involves a big decision, or does it? A lot of network marketing companies have a very minimal upfront membership fee. It is no different than joining Sam's club for their discount prices.
The decision to move from a wholesale membership into a Network Marketing business is merely a monthly commitment, or autoship. In order to justify a monthly autoship, you should really like the products!
Become a customer first; make a business decision when you feel that it is a network marketing business you want to promote and enjoy for years to come. My advice is: even if you didn't make a dime, make sure there is something in it for you!
Health is BIG business.
The fact that Isagenix is a Health and Wellness company could be a deciding factor. More and more of us are taking our health into our own hands and out of Doctors' hands. There is big money in any company that has products that produce positive changes in the health of those that are in less than perfect health. That would be most of us.
Paul Zane Pilzer, a well known economist and author of The Wellness Revolution, states "that more millionaires will be made in the Health and Wellness industry that any other."
As Americans, we are an unhealthy bunch. Choose wisely and consider a Network Marketing business that can supply money as well as another important asset: your health!

GeneWize officially launched as a direct marketing arm of GeneLink on August 1st, 2008. This network marketing company is
currently providing individuals with a customized nutritional supplement based on their own
DNA assessment. This is a relatively new scientific field with considerable upside potential,
but does GeneWize have what it takes to take advantage of this breakthrough?
How Does GeneWize Work?
Variations in the
DNA sequences of humans, commonly referred to as SNP's (single nucleotide polymorphisms pronounced "snips"), can affect how humans
develop diseases and respond to pathogens, chemicals, drugs, vaccines, and other agents. SNPs are also thought to be key
enablers in realizing the concept of personalized medicine and nutrition.
GeneWize scientists have chosen twelve specific SNP's to
be measured for the Healthy Aging Assessment, using the following criteria:
The existence of the SNP is supported by solid, credible, scientific evidence. Gene SNPs
are added as knowledge progresses. If there is no scientific data to support the validity of the
SNP, it will not be used.
A SNP predicts biochemical processes that are associated with significant, specific physiological disadvantages. In other words,
the SNP has to be related to something that matters to our health.
Frequent The SNP frequency is relatively common among the general
If the SNP only occurs in .008% of the population, it would not make sense to add it to the assessment.
Actionable A SNP's negative potential can be modulated by nutritional
supplementation. A SNP for eye color would not be used, for example, because it cannot be altered with nutritional support.
In order to help compensate for any predicted deficiencies, "genetically selected ingredients" and nutrients (called SNPboostsTM)
are titrated and blended into the individual nutritional formulation. This personalized formulation is mixed for you each
month and delivered to you.
How Does GeneWize Compare on Price?
not the only company offering personalized nutritional solutions, but their patents seem to give them a competitive advantage.
They are able to produce a more customized product at a price point that beats other companies offering DNA-Based Nutrition. For
a company to be able to sustain itself for years, its product must be able to compete with the retail sector independently of any business
opportunity associated with it. Even without the compensation plan and customer referral program, GeneWize appears to offer the best
product for the money.
How DNA Samples are Submitted
The sample kit consists of two cotton swabs for the inside of your cheek, a drying rack, and a bar-coded envelope to place the swabs in.
There is an 800 number to call which will be used to link the envelope to the corresponding account in the company database. This ensures that
the genetic material will remain completely confidential and safe. Once the lab has analyzed the DNA to assess the 12 SNP's, they destroy
the sample using proper industry standards.
GeneWize is a Ground-Floor Opportunity
has patents and patents pending which give them a competitive advantage. This is a new network marketing company

There are pros and cons associated with any new network marketing opportunity.
A ground-breaking industry offers a lot of upside potential, but the company's management needs to be strong and the growth
strategy must allow for hiccups along the way.
GeneWize appears to have a solid team and strategy for moving
forward. Still, anyone looking to pursue a business with this type of opportunity must anticipate some growing pains
along the way.
What is the GeneWize Compensation Plan?
GeneWize has made a
clear distinction between customers and affiliates. The incentive to enroll as an affiliate is to generate an income, not
just to save on the price of the product, as with many other MLM's. Anyone can save on the price of the product, whether
they are an affiliate or a customer, through the customer referral program. Every time a customer or affiliate refers a new
product user, the referrer receives a discount on their product each month the new user is ordering theirs. The discount
increases exponentially with each new referral, and it only takes four personally referred customers to get your own product for free.
All of these referrals are considered to be in the business affiliate's direct customer base. Additionally,
once an affiliate has sponsored four customers or affiliates themselves, their monthly company costs are reduced to just the shipping
charges. This will greatly reduce the high attrition rate seen in most network marketing companies, since operating expenses are
then focused solely on marketing. You could treat this purely as a direct sales company, and do quite well as your customers become
a secondary sales force.
The compensation plan offers four ways to earn income:
1. Direct Sales
2. Team Sales 3. Matching Income Bonus 4. Incentive Programs
Does GeneWize Provide Network Marketing Training and Support?
GeneWize offers innovative support tools, such as a video prospecting system, weekly corporate support and training calls, and
daily newscasts sent via email. Still, the marketing you use will depend largely upon you and your network marketing team.
When considering marketing strategy, there are several distinct groups to market to, including health and wellness professionals, baby boomers, young college graduates and other network marketers. Attraction marketing plans can be customized to suit each of these niches.
If you are interested in the potential GeneWize offers, make sure you are taking full advantage of
all the new tools and resources available today to build your network marketing business efficiently by
generating your own leads.
If you have already enrolled as an affiliate, ask your upline what they know about attraction marketing.
If they are unfamiliar with it, direct them to learn more about it along with you. You'll both be glad you did.

Xango was founded in November of 2002. The
company's premiere product is XanGo Juice, a Mangosteen supplement that is
reported to have a number of different health benefits.
This network marketing company is based on two
First, it is based on the health and
nutritional benefits of its Mangosteen based products.
Second, it is based on a compensation plan that
pays out 50% of all earnings received to the sales force.
The Xango Product Line
Xango currently has three products that you are
able to offer out in the marketplace. The three products that make up Xango's
product lineup are XanGo Juice, XanGo Single and XanGo 3SIXTY5.
XanGo Juice is the premiere product of the
Xango product line. It comes in a bottle that contains 750ml of the juice.
Based on the recommended servings, a bottle can last a week to a little over
three weeks for a single person.
Their competitive advantage is that their Juice
contains more Xanthones than any other product. Xanthones are reported to have
a number of different benefits to the body including being an antioxidant.
Xango Single is a miniature form of the Juice
that is primarily used as a method of exposure to the Xango product line.
Unlike the Juice, the singles are portable, miniature and don't require any
Xango 3SIXTY5 is a whole food vitamin and
mineral nutritional supplement that comes in two versions. One is for men and
the other is for women. It is specifically designed for people who don't get
the necessary daily fruit and vegetable intake.
Xango Compensation Plan
The company prides itself on a compensation
plan that pays out 50% commission on each product sold by the distributor sales
force. There are four ways you get paid in the Xango compensation plan.
The first method of compensation is retail
sales. As a Xango distributor you are able to purchase the product at a
wholesale price and sell it at a retail price. You get to keep the difference
The wholesale price is $100 for 4 bottles. The
bottle retails for $37.50, so if you are able to sell all 4 bottles at retail
price you make $50 profit.
The second way you get paid is in the form of
PowerStart bonuses. When you recruit a new Xango distributor, you get paid
anywhere from 20% to 30% commission on the initial order made by that new
As an example, if your distributor ordered two
cases, you would receive $60 or $90 commission. To qualify for the higher bonus
amount you will need to be on a company auto-ship that works out to about $200 a
The third way you get paid is from the product
orders of distributors on your team that are above and beyond the initial
product order. You receive 2%, 5% or 10% commission on up to 9 levels of
distributors in your organization.
However, if one of your distributors doesn't
qualify to earn income on a certain level and you do, the income that
distributor "would have" earned goes directly to you.
This is called streamline or dynamic
compensation and you could potentially get paid twice for the same production or
once on production you otherwise wouldn't get paid on.
For the top leaders in the company, Xango
splits 3% of overall sales volume commissions with them as well.
Xango Network Marketing Business
There are several disadvantages to starting a
Xango business typically found when starting any type of network marketing
business in the health and wellness industry.
One of the biggest challenges is the high level
of competitiveness in this market. You are competing with any company that
offers health related products. In addition, retailers are now entering the
market and offering Mangosteen based juices for significantly below Xango's
Because you only get paid on a certain number
of levels, there is a huge potential to have a major player show up in your down
line only to find yourself being cut off by distributors who aren't building
much but keep their product order to remain qualified.
The other disadvantage is that true residual
income is limited with this network marketing opportunity. This is because the
company offers a physical product that has to be re-ordered every month. There
is an auto-ship option however.
For Network Marketers Success University Feeds Two Birds With One Seed
Many argue that personal development is an integral part of becoming the leader of your network marketing business. Successful leadership means becoming someone capable of mentoring and assisting other network marketers, and growing a substantial organization that earns a residual, full time supportive income.
For online network marketers, Success University is unique because while building an internet network marketing business, you learn from the world's top personal development trainers and writers about success and personal achievement.
You earn an income by recruiting and sponsoring members into Success University.
Success University is the most visited personal development website in the world.
It has the reputation for being a premium personal development program due to the quality of its success training, faculty, and flexible online learning. Furthermore, the income potential rewards those who are committed, and build the business over time.
Success University Commission System
The commission system at Success University will vary according to the membership level, sales rank, along with other qualifying conditions. There are fast start bonuses, binary weekly and monthly commissions, monthly promotions and other monetary incentives.
There are various uses of media located within the Success University back office that explain the commission system. This includes PDF diagrams, explanatory notes and a 40 minute audio.
Although most successful Success University affiliates build their business using a merge of internet marketing and network marketing, Success University now has an optional marketing program that guarantees $50,000 or more per year to distribute issues of Empower magazine. This particular issue features the merits of Success University and the diverse number of successful business builders. This is a brand new marketing tool for Success University affiliates.
Success University Training and Personal Development
Success University training encompasses every aspect of success - relationships, communication, goal setting, selling/negotiation, time management, money/investment, leadership, networking, life balance, motivation and health (spiritual/physical/emotional) and accelerated learning.
Success University Faculty Members
The faculty of Success University are the world's leaders in personal development such as Jim Rohn, Jay Abraham, Robert Allen, Zig Ziglar, Tony Alessandra, Lisa Jeminez, Denis Waitley, Dr. Wayne Pickering, Asha Tyson, Dr. Sheila Murray Bethel and Patricia Fripp, among many others.
Success University Online Learning and Flexibility
Personal development training and success are provided via video and audio streaming, recorded conference calls, automatic e-mail lessons, e-books, downloadable workbooks, live conference calls with leading experts and an e-library.
$2 14 Day Trial Offer
Success University allows you to try out the program for two dollars for 14 days. This provides plenty of time to learn more about the program, and the compensation plan. The $2 tuition for the 14 day trial is required, and donated to Feed The Children charity.
Matt Morris is President and CEO of Success University
Matt Morris is from Arlington, Texas. He has become one of the top two money-earners in two separate network marketing companies. He has led his teams and organizations upwards of 30,000 distributors worldwide. He co-founded a network marketing technology solutions company.
Morris has continued to be committed to training and development. His motivation to remain a student of personal development, and his own successful experience with network marketing led to Success University.
Recommendations For Internet Network Marketers Building a Success University Business
The program costs $49.95 a month. Although, to maximize the compensation plan, one must upgrade to premium membership, which is a one time cost of $149 (this also includes your first month of membership). Upgrading to premium membership doubles your earning potential.
The Success University network marketing business embraces the internet as a significant way to build your business. Learning internet marketing skills so you can generate leads is a must.
You Must Be Generating Your Own Leads
But if you are buying your leads you will probably fail. Purchasing leads is too expensive for most business builders. Most often, people run out of money before starting to enjoy the residual income that Success University can produce.
Network marketers must have a lead-pulling system because not even 5% will join your business. Therefore another aspect of leads generation is profiting from your leads even if they never join your network marketing business building team. In this sense, it's critical to target a market interested in other (information) products you can offer and make income as an affiliate.

If you've come to this page you have more than likely decided:
you want to join a network marketing company and you're not sure which one, or,
you're already in one, but aren't positive you want to continue with it so you're exploring your options. Both are great reasons to be here.
It's important to do some homework before joining any MLM company.
Let's Look AtTahitian Noni International.
Credibility is an important consideration when looking at a network marketing company.
People need good reasons for wanting to get into business with you or to buy your products.
Promoting products that don't work or a company that isn't an industry leader doesn't make anyone look good.
A poor image of you or your company can negatively affect your business.
The Credibility Of Tahitian Noni International's Product Line,
Compensation Plan, Status And Reputation
Tahitian Noni International started in
1996 and has earned the title of the 4th fastest growing company in history according to Griffin Hill Consulting.
This kind of growth indicates:
the products must be good and people want them
customers continue to buy month after month,
the compensation plan is good
the company provides support to its members
Without these factors, TNI would not continue to grow and expand as it has.
Tahitian Noni International has grown to include over 75 countries.
Their Flagship Product Is TAHITIAN NONITM Juice.
They were the first to bring it to the world and in fact, created an industry.
Let's think about Coca Cola for a minute. They were the first
company to introduce Coke to the world. They created an industry where there wasn't one before.
Now, there are many competitors out there who
produce cola products but Coca Cola remains the 'top banana' in the industry.
There is a great benefit to being the first in any industry.
Tahitian Noni International Brought The First Recognized "Superfruit" To The Market And It's The Only One Backed By Human Clinical Trials.
Many companies have products that are said to have any number of benefits but you may have difficulty finding any who have done human clinical
trials with peer reviews and published results that support the stated benefits.
TNI has over 12 published human clinical trials.
Tahitian Noni International (TNI) Was The First To Bring A Line Of "Functional Beverages" To The Market.
a ready to drink beverage line that is designed specifically for particular functions, like HIROTM Vitality, HIROTM Thermo, HIROTM Mobility, and HIROTM Energy.
TNI is a network marketing company that's committed to industry leadership. It's committed to developing high quality and unique products, paving the way for
a long and healthy future.
The Tahitian NoniTM Brand Is Recognized World Wide For Superior Quality And Effectiveness And Is
Protected From Duplication.
The Tahitian NoniTM brand is the leading and most recognized brand in the world. Not only that,
it is the standard by which all others are compared. The formulas are proprietary which means its a trade secret, protected for all time.
Everyone knows that every new business requires an investment.
However, the question most
on everyone's lips is "how soon will I recoup my initial investment?"
The Fearless Income BuildingTM System has been
designed to remove the risk and fear from starting a business.
The Fearless Income BuildingTM system will show you how you can turn your
initial investment into being cash flow positive in as little as 30 days.
The compensation plan (how you get paid) pays 53 % with no breakage.
You may not be aware that many companies advertise bigger payouts but that's because they depend on "breakage".
In other words, if a person doesn't
qualify one month , instead of that payment being made to the next qualified distributor as TNI does, this money is sent up to the company itself. Looks good on
the surface but ultimately isn't good for the distributors.
Support, Training And Rewards
Everyone wants to know that they aren't
in the business alone. They want assurance of support not only from the person who brings them into the business but also from the company.
Now, I could go
on about things that at the end of the day don't matter one little bit to the person looking to join a business because what they really want to know is 'what's in it for me?"
The cold hard facts are that most people who join any network marketing company, do so to make money.
All they want to know is if their products will sell, if they will continue to be purchased and can they make money.
Since it opened its doors in1996, TNI has created over 300 Millionaires. That's the truth.
Do You Think Tahitian Noni
International Is The Network Marketing Company For You?
If you're looking for credibility, sustainability and financial rewards,
TNI has it in bucket-loads!
Tahitian Noni International is 'built to last'. It will be here for your kids and their kids to secure a better financial future.
Now that you know a little bit more about Tahitian Noni International, you can decide for yourself.
No network marketing company is perfect, and this includes TNI.
What's important is the desire to strive to be the best it can be, to be an industry leader, and to look after its members, their needs and wants. This it does and does well.
Whichever network marketing company you decide to join, remember that it won't be perfect
either. You can make a "go" of just about any of them. The one thing that will ultimately make the difference to your success is YOU!

Greeting Cards as a Business Opportunity: A Review of the SendOutCards Network Marketing Opportunity - by Barbara Silva
September 20, 2008 3:25 PM
SendOutCards Company History
SendOutCards is a network marketing
company founded in 2003 by Kody Bateman. The seed for the idea of this company was planted
when Bateman failed to act upon an urge to contact his brother in 1989. Shortly after, his brother was
killed and the chance to act on that inner prompting Bateman had experienced was lost. He became obsessed
with finding a way to make it easy for people to immediately respond when they felt one of those "prompts" to connect with someone else.
The idea germinated into a system to serve as an online reminder service to subscribers for upcoming birthdays, anniversaries,
holidays and other important dates. By 2001, the Treat 'em Right Solutions program was launched helping businesses
to use greeting cards as a part of relationship marketing.
In its present form, users can create a customized
card in under a minute, push the send button and they're done. The actual card is printed, stuffed into an envelope,
optional inserts added (i.e. a gift card, book, etc.), addressed, stamped and mailed by the company.
The SendOutCards Product Customized Greeting Cards
At present, there are over
13,000 greeting cards to choose from. The card catalog is well laid out so that it is easy to search for a
particular kind of card.
Cards are printed on recycled paper, and are of the same quality as a card
you might purchase at a Hallmark store.
Cards can be customized by changing the inside message,
printing your message in your handwriting by using a special handwriting font, and uploading personal
photos to the inside of the card.
Personal photos can also be used to create the outside of the
card with a caption. The system is very user friendly and adding captions, borders, or uploading photos
is quite simple.
While many network marketing companies off their products at market prices,
the greeting cards at SendOutCards actually cost less than if purchased them off the shelf at a local store.
A personalized greeting card with custom message, uploaded photo, and personal handwriting would cost $.93
depending on the distributor's package. That's less than a comparable card would at Target.
The Compensation Plan for SendOutCards
The compensation plan looks generous enough, but compared to other plans I've seen is a bit
complicated. I went on several different sites to find different breakdowns of the comp plan and
I still find it difficult to simplify here.
l. Direct Retail Sales
A distributor can use
their system to send a card for their customer and then charge a fee for that service and the card itself.
2. There is a coaching bonus of $100-$120 dollars when a wholesale package or "entrepreneur" meaning business
opportunity package is sold. This refers to taking the customer through the system and showing them how it works.
You can also send them through a prerecorded walkthrough video.
3. The bonus on the number of greeting cards
sold goes through seven levels.
4. As you move up in the ranks, there are unlimited levels for which you can
receive bonuses based on cards sold ranging from 5% to 25% depending on your rank.
Disclaimer as I mentioned,
this plan has lots of components. If you decide to consider this company for your business, I urge you to look over the
compensation plan yourself. This is only a bare bones overview.
Marketing Training offered by SendOutCards
The company does have an extensive training program presented in different formats which is great for various learning styles. There
are materials and business organization sheets ready for immediate use. Depending on the presenter, there may still be some push toward
old school methods of talking to people when you are out and about. Attraction marketing is, in my opinion, far more effective. Still,
there is more meat to this training than purely motivational "go get em."
The system also has a capacity for distributors to "share"
their campaigns or cards they have created with others. A new distributor with no idea what kind of information to include in the cards they
send has access to cards made by those with more experience. From there it is just a matter of personalizing.
The replicated website has training built in. By "replicated website" I mean that every distributor has
the same features on their site as created by the company. You can store your contact information there, and use it to create your own cards,
but you cannot add or subtract from the content.
You can take someone through the system and sign them up right on your site, or you
can refer them to your "gift account" site where they can create their own card and try the system out for themselves. Again, your job is
to help prospects find you gift account page to begin with.
As with all replicated sites, they are very helpful once you get a prospect
to the page. Attracting them to your page in the first place will be up to you and your marketing plan.
Choosing Your Upline
The training provided by the SendOutCards corporate office is excellent. The training provided within a specific team will vary. Some teams have
training specifically for their members, and have a system to share selling techniques, autoresponder messages, card campaigns, and tracking materials. Other
teams leave all the training up to the Company and add little else.
No matter what company you are investigating, it is hugely important that you check
into the team you will be joining. You may really like the person sponsoring you, but unless that person is a leader strong enough to provide you with any extra
training you may need, you better be sure someone else on the team is! The wrong advice from your upline can do your business more harm than the good advice helps.
Maintaining Customer Relationships
There will be three types of customers for this particular greeting card system:
1. the personal use customer who purchases enough cards for private use at the discounted price.
2. the business owner who uses the system
as a way to maintain customer relationships.
3. the person who is looking for a business opportunity with a good compensation plan, good track
history, and doesn't want to have to handle inventory.
Owning a SendoutCards Business: Advantages and Disadvantages
The company has strong leadership and is still growing.
There is no inventory to store, ship or handle.
The compensation plan is strong.
Real world training is provided online so you can learn from home.
The product is "green" which is appealing to most.
Pricing of the product
is lower than offline retail prices.
The product lends itself to corporate accounts bigger sales for the same effort.
Difficulty in explaining the compensation plan due to the multiple components involved.
The quality of the campaign sharing program will only be
as good as the team members who are creating the campaigns.
Choosing A Network Marketing Opportunity
The great news for
someone seeking a new business opportunity is that there are so many companies to choose from. So much choice, however, can make it all a bit
overwhelming. Consider your own areas of interest, and remember that your
ultimate success will depend more on the relationship YOU build with your customers, than any promotions provided by your company. Good luck and happy searching!
