Most MLM companies begin with; a unique product and a vision to improve the lives of their customers and distributors. It is rare that a company can pull this off without a unique and specialized product. Indeed the proliferation of nutritional supplements, super juices, weight loss products and cosmetics dominate the industry. The natural progression of these companies is to secure a foundation with their unique product and expand as they profit. Would it be possible to START a network marketing company with not a single product focus but with a complete product line…or even a mall?
It took Amazon.com®, years to pull off what Market America did on its very first day. They launched their business and distribution strategy full force with a dizzying array of thousands of products. In fact, Market America is a true hybrid of QVC® and Amazon.com®, but with powerful and distinct advantages — a Web Portal, an opportunity AND the power of people.
Founded in 1992, Market America is a product brokerage and Internet marketing company that specializes in One-to-One Marketing in an MLM system. With more than 3 million Preferred Customers and 180,000 Distributors worldwide, Market America has generated over $3 billion in accumulated retail sales. In that time, individuals have earned over $1.8 billion in commissions and estimated retail profits. Headquartered in Greensboro, North Carolina, the company employs over 500 people and has business in the United States, Australia, Canada, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Last year’s revenues exceeded $280 million dollars. Not bad for a company that doesn’t make anything.
Just like the popular shopping channel QVC, Market America does not manufacture its products — but it has thousands of people who submit products, services and information to the company for consideration. And much like the online giant Amazon.com, Market America has the capability of selling millions of products and services. However, instead of relying on search engine traffic and traditional advertising, Market America relies upon the power of network marketing.
The company boasts that almost anything can be purchased through Market America’s Website. With gift cards, travel services, skin products, exercise equipment, supplements, jewelry and hundreds of other categories from 3,000 distinct partner stores, Market America certainly boasts more products than any other MLM in the world.
Launching in 1992, Market America gained a distinct advantage over companies that had been launched years or decades before. They grew up with the internet and their executives required no shift in their marketing, branding or distribution strategy. Like most of the new MLM’s to follow, they started off online.
Market America’s specialty shops offer a full line of top products for Distributors and customers. Distributors and customers have access to millions of products from the most famous brands and stores in the world via Market America’s partner stores. These stores include Wal-Mart, Target, Disney, iTunes Store and Lands’ End, to name a few. Not one to rest on their laurels, Market America’s latest innovation is the Market America Preferred Partner (MAPP) program, which incorporates local neighborhood merchants into the Endless Shopping Experience.
In the near future, virtually any product or service can be purchased through Market America. If Market America has its way, the boundaries of traditional shopping outlets will be an antiquated system.
