It Works Global and the top 10 criteria of Great Network Marketing Opportunity

Here are ten tips to help you decide that the It Works Global opportunity is right for you.

Click here to learn more about each one

1. Has the company been around for at least 5 years?

It Works Global was started in 2001 and despite the bad economy they have done well every year since.

“The biggest challenge in this industry—and really the worldwide market—is to offer an uncommon solution, a true original, that captivates people and offers them something they never thought possible before.  When we found the Ultimate Body Applicator, we knew we had something special to share with the world.” – Mark Pentecost, CEO It Works! Global

To this day, It Works!’ first product is still its most popular: The Ultimate Body Applicator.  The site-specific body contouring treatment has been in the hands of celebrities at Hollywood events and at the doorsteps of people like you all over the world—exclusively available through It Works! Global. It all started when Mark Pentecost received a call from Pam Sowder (now It Works! Chief Networking Officer) raving about a product that was an alternative to the growing trend for more drastic measures like cosmetic surgeries or constricting shape-wear.

2. Is the company debt free?

The economic crisis that began in 2009 presented many families and businesses across the world with devastating circumstances.  We at It Works! feel very fortunate to have been able to be a source of hope for families in need during such difficult years through our steadfast business opportunity.

Despite the grim economy, It Works! became debt-free in 2009, and sales began to reach unprecedented heights.

3. Does the company offer products or services that are unique?

Our flagship product The Ultimate Body Applicator, also know as The Skinny Wrap is one of a kind and can’t be duplicated.

When the Pentecosts traveled to try this seemingly unbelievable product, Mark recalls, “I watched my wife try it. She was ecstatic with the results, and I watched her call her girlfriend right away to tell her what had happened.  Her girlfriend said that she wanted to try it, and they hung up.  It wasn’t 30 seconds later, her girlfriend called back and said, ‘My daughter was listening, and she wants one for her chin. Is there something for the chin?’ That was when I knew that we had a perfect product for direct selling, a product that people would be excited to share with their friends and family.”

Since then, the Ultimate Body Applicator has become a global phenomenon, and Pam Sowder now travels all over the world to meet with distributors, give hands-on training and support, and share the Ultimate Body Applicator.

4. Is there a genuine need for the product or service?

The Skinny Wrap is in high demand around the world.  Coupled with our Supplement and Skin Care Line this is the perfect storm.In his pursuit to find the best vitamin to keep his own body healthy, Mark has made it possible for you to have access to the same superior formula for yourself and your family. This standard of providing the best quality supplements on the market has carried through all our product formulations and remains the driving force behind the It Works! dietary supplements line.

Today, the It Works supplements line is a comprehensive collection of nutritional solutions for real people like you to help you combat the elements and stay healthy, and Dr. Don travels around the world with Chief Networking Officer Pam Sowder to teach on the benefits of the It Works! supplements and spread his message of ten easy steps to better health.

We proudly stand behind our commitment to nutritional supplements that contain the highest quality ingredients, offering you real, life-changing results at affordable prices. Whether you’re looking to reduce stress, lose weight, get top-notch nutrition, regulate your digestive system, or turn back the hands of time from the inside out, there is a solution for you in the It Works! supplements line.

Top 10 Ways to Pick The Best Network Marketing Opportunity

image_045ef39f7cfca99509b955f076f91794

Here are ten tips to help you pick the right network marketing opportunity for you.

1. Has the company been around for at least 5 years?

If you want the efforts you put in today to pay off for many years in the future, choose a company that has proven that it will be around for the long term.  Did you know that 90% of all network marketing companies FAIL within the first 2 years.  You will hear many people talking about how their opportunity is ground floor and how if you get in with the first people you will make a lot of money.  If the company is less than 5 years old it is a risk to get involved.  If you can afford to take that risk, go for it.  If you family depends on the money you would be spending your time better by looking for a Home Based Business Opportunity with a strong foundation. You don’t want to invest your precious time and resources (not to mention your future) in something that may not be in business next month, do you?

2. Is the company debt free?

Why is this important?  Most companies fail because they don’t have the cash to grow the company, maintain a solid infrastructure, invest in changing technology and put money back into the field through commissions and bonuses.

If a company is debt free they will be around for a long time.  The best Multi-level Marketing Opportunities will be with companies that are debt free.

3. Does the company offer products or services that are unique?

Does the Network Marketing Opportunity you are looking at have a unique product that can’t be duplicated?  If they only have products that have a lot of competition such as healthy juice, vitamins, skin care, jewelry it is going to be harder for you to sell and make good money.  You will be up against people who want you to defend your product against another product on the market.

4. Is there a genuine need for the product or service?

You’ve probably heard horror stories about people ending up with a garage full of expensive water filters, cases and cases of juice, boxes of makeup and piles of pills and the reason is only other distributors will purchase the product at that price, because there are so many options to choose from and many might be lest expensive.  It is human nature to want to buy at the best possible price.  You can have great products but the competition can kill your potential for making money and you will be left with a lot of product.  If you have a product that has a need and can’t be found any where else people will pay your asking price and you won’t be able to keep them in stock.

5. Is the product or service trendy or a fad?

If the company you are looking at is selling something that is current right now but may not be current forever, you can’t build long term residual income  if the product or service only has short term appeal.  When looking for an opportunity think in terms of longevity.   Is the product or service something that your customers will continue to use for a long time? If the company sells one time purchase items that is also not a good Multi-level Marketing opportunity if you are looking for residual income.

6. Can you generate immediate income?

So that you can finance your marketing and expansion efforts from cash flow.  Are there bonus’ build into the compensation plan up front where you make money immediately.  If you have to wait until you get to a certain level to get paid, pass that opportunity up.

7. Does the marketing system take full advantage of technology?

Does the company have an internet presence and a brand that is recognized?  Can anyone plug into the system and understand how it works.  is there training available on line?  Can people go to your website and purchase?  Is there a back office tracking system for your team?

8. Is the person who is introducing you to the opportunity committed to YOUR success?

If they are, the company is strong, and the product or service is a winner,  you WILL succeed. There’s a big difference between a “sponsor” and a “recruiter.” A sponsor coaches. motivates and trains and a recruiter just signs people up and in most cases, abandons them.  You have to be willing to learn, stay connected with your sponsor and stay plugged into the company.

9. Is there a way to build your business part-time without losing your full time income?

The company must have automated systems that can do the heavy lifting  for you so that you can use your limited time efficiently.  Is shipping automated and sent directly to the customer?  If you have to deliver products that is a time consideration.

10. Will you have FUN?

By all means look for a company that has a lot of fun.  Study the culture of the company which is easy with social media. Do people look like they are having fun?  Does the team do things together.  There are people you will be working long term with and it needs to be fun!

These are  —ten criteria for selecting a superior network marketing opportunity that will help you pin down the right opportunity for you. Of course, even with a great company, there’s no such thing as a free lunch. You WILL have to work! But, with the right opportunity, it won’t have to be forever!

Why is Network Marketing the best Opportunity for Women?

903860_542918392449939_1826745913_o

What’s the best business for women? Network Marketing, also known as Direct Sales! 

Let me describe my Network Marketing business, It Works! Global, the one that puts me in the top income earners with the company, and see if it’s something that might appeal to you:

1-Flexible schedule

2-No Boss

3-income potential

4-Offer something everyone uses

5-Has a product everyone wants and they can only get from a Distributor

6-No inventories to maintain

7-No deliveries to make

8-Take vacation when you want

9-Recession-proof

10-Nothing to ship

11-Wide-open global market

12-Incredible tax benefits

13-Work from home or office

14-Spend more time with your family

15-Puts women first

16-Unlimited income potential

17-No competing for pay raises

18-Low Start-up cost  (as little as $99

19-Low monthly costs ($100)

20-Great Bonus’

21-Fun

22-Make new friends

23-Freedom!

24-Women are all about relationships, so is Network Marketing!

Want to know more? What woman wouldn’t!

Sure, I make a great living, but the income happens because I’m in a business that enables me to do what I love to do every day, help people improve their health and wealth.

But it wasn’t always this way. Far from it.

I went to college and got a BFA and a Masters degree (big expense there) and worked as a psychologist for 26 years.  I was a single mom and when my kids were young I had to work three jobs to make ends meet.  When I worked only two jobs there was never enough money to stretch to the end of the month.  I racked up a lot of credit card debt, close to $30,000 because of that.  Even when I was getting paid at the top of my pay scale I couldn’t make a dent in that debt.

When I first heard about Network Marketing I was skeptical.  I wasn’t sure if it was some pyramid scheme or not, but the earning potential and time freedom sure were enticing!  I found out later that pyramid schemes are illegal and that Network Marketing is a legitimate business model just like Corporate Jobs are.  A secret Corporate America doesn’t want you to know!

Network Marketing favors the individual and opens the door to unlimited earning potential.  I make so much more money than I did as a psychologist it is unbelievable!  It leaves me wondering why I paid all of that money to “Get a Good Job”.   I have been able to pay all that debt off buy a brand new car and take several dream trips that I didn’t think I would ever take, in the last couple of years.

Read this before you choose a Home Based Business!!

momentum

“Home-based businesses are one of the fastest-growing segments in our economy, and that trend will only continue, as the age of the corporation, which began barely a century ago, now gives way to the age of the entrepreneur.” – Paul Zane Pilzer, Author and Nobel Prize Winning Economist

There are a lot of things to consider when you are looking for an MLM/Home Based Business to get involved in. Your SUCCESS depends on your choice and your action!  Learning about a company is called doing your due diligence, which a lot of people fail to do, getting caught up in the hype of someone else.  Due diligence will help you make an informed decision beyond any hype you might be hearing.

Here are some things to consider that are key to your success:

1- You want to find a company that is at least 18 months old though 5 years is even better.  A high percentage of home based business opportunities fail in the first 2 years so stability and longevity are very important.  You don’t want to put your valuable time and energy into building a business only to have it taken away because the company failed.

2-You also will have a stronger chance of success if the company is debt free.  The reason for this is two fold.  First a company that is debt free is going to stick around and not fail because they have too much debt.  Secondly, this means that more money can go into the field for the distributors.  Debt free is the new sexy!

3-Look for a product that is both consumable and first-to-market.  Is this a product that people will want to have.  Is the demand high?  A product that is first-to-market is one that has no competition.  If you choose a product that like other products you spend most of your time defending your product against similar ones.  You also want to look for a company that has more than one product.

4-Look for an opportunity that is ground level.  This doesn’t necessarily mean it is a new company.  For a company to qualify for ground level it must have less than 500,000 distributors.  If a company has less than 100,000 distributors it is a ONCE IN A LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY.

It-Works-Growth-Chart

5-You want to get in at the right time. There are a lot of great companies out there, with great products, but once they go through the momentum phase the potential for making fabulous money diminishes.  The perfect time is before the company hits momentum or at the beginning of momentum.  Once in momentum the energy is building for that company to become a household word and the retail members and distributors are exploding.   During early momentum a company will reach critical mass where the annual sales are $50 million dollars.  You want to get in  at the ground floor early in momentum so that you can benefit from the explosive growth.  All those people who are joining have to be under someone, wouldn’t it be great if it was you!

Creating Your Own Economy

Why would anyone want to start a home based business

Here is what Paul Zane Pilzer, Author and Nobel Prize Winning Economist says about network marketing/home-based business:

“Home-based businesses are one of the fastest-growing segments of our economy and that trend will only continue, as the age of the corporation, which began barely a century ago, now gives way to the age of the entrepreneur.”

With that said I predict that in the future we will be buying from each other and the corporation will be a thing of the past.  We will be in charge of the economy and everyone will have the potential to be financially free. The business model of network marketing also known as MLM and direct marketing is the most viable vehicle for that to happen.  Currently it is one of the only ways to purchase cutting edge technology and cutting edge products for personal use.

Why does it work for me?

Like most people I have dreams of things I want to do when I get more time.  I have always thought of retiring early so I could do those things that I feel I am here to do  as part of my purpose, like my visionary art.  I remember waking up several years ago and realizing that at the rate I was going, working for someone else, I would never be able to retire!  That is how it is when we exchange time for money, we build someone else’s dream and never get around to our own.

The day that I had my realization I decided I needed to find ways to build residual income that would keep coming even when I wasn’t working and after I quit working.  This is when I started looking into network marketing.  Like most people I was skeptical at first.  I tried several business opportunities before I found one that was a fit.  It is a first to market product, with cutting edge sales tools and training, with a fabulous comp plan in a company that has not yet reached it’s tipping point. To me that is a recipe for success

When I was introduced to It Works in May 2008 I was involved in three other business opportunities with my very dear friends Che Lisa and Tim. I love the direct marketing/ mlm/network marketing business model because it is the only real way for the average person to become financially free. This is one way to create you own economy.

Che called me and told me about a body patch that was made with all natural herbs, essential oils, minerals and homeopathics and when it was applied to the body it caused people to lose inches in 45 minutes. I signed up without trying the product because I could see the vision the beauty of selling a first-to-market product.  When I got my business builders kit the following week and tried the Ultimate Body Applicator I lost 8 1/4 with the first one.  I love our products but do have my favorites.  I am in love with the New You 3.0, Ultimate Body Applicator, The Defining Gel, Greens and the Ultimate Thermofit and I have seen hundreds of people’s lives change using these products.  Learn about the Ultimate Body Applicator.

It was important to us to see corporate and meet the owners so Che, Tim, myself and 5 other new distributors drove to Michigan in June 2008 to meet the owners.  We had been in the business about six weeks and Pam and Mark and Debbie and everyone at corporate rolled out the red carpet for us, treated us like family and even featured on the first webinar It Works did.  I was sold on It Works! and dropped out of the other business opportunities I was involved in. This welcoming, family atmosphere continues today as we expand internationally. It works is now available in the US, Canada, the UK and Australia.

I feel that Network Marketing/MLM/Direct Marketing is the best personal growth workshop on the planet because if my business isn’t expanding and growing there is something in me that is out of alignment with my dream. When I use this approach and sift myself my business shifts immediately.  I have used this to develop personally as I grow and expand my business and support my team.  It has been exciting for me to watch It Works! grow along side me. Article by Robert Kiyosaki on Network Marketing.

Every March the CEO, Mark Pentecost, pulls out all the stops to support everyone to take their business to a whole new level.  For the month of March this year it is really crazy because he dropped the cost of the business builders kit to  $99. The crazy part is you can make $240 just by selling the product that is included in the kit.  Not only that but with all the bonuses available this month you can set the foundation to grow an amazingly successful business.  You get $200 in free product just for bring in 4 customers, for example, and that is just the beginning.  That is why the $99 kit is crazy!  When I joined the company I paid $299 and I have built a successful business!  Details about the $99 kit.

My advice to anyone who is building any kind of home based business for yourself is to never give up, be patient, visualize success and be persistent.  You never know who is around the next corner and things can change in an instant! I wish everyone the success they dream of no matter what you choose to do to create your own economy.

“If I were start my entrepreneurial career all over again, I would start with a network marketing or direct sales business, not for the money but for the real-world business training I could receive”  –Robert Kiyosaki, Success From Home Magazine
