They call is the “unfranchise". Meaning it is likened to a franchise offering all the benefits of a franchise without the traditional overhead expenses and fees that are associated with a franchise. Market America is a product brokerage and one to one marketing company specializing in Mass Customization. Founded in 1992 by James Ridinger, Market America makes its headquarters in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Market America does not manufacture its own products instead it finds what is hot in today's market based upon the surveying of their current customer base. Once they determine a need or want for a specific product they search out a manufacturer to produce the product. Market America then allows the manufacturer to produce, research and develop the product. Market America focuses its energy on bringing this product to market through its network of unfranchise owners. Market America's products have a very wide range from health and nutrition to skin care, etc. They have a base product line that is marketed under the umbrella of what they call their “Mall without walls". In addition to these products they have 1000's of internet affiliations that allow them to represent other products through their web portal.
The Business Model
Market America is part of the network marketing industry. Each unfranchise owner is encouraged to recruit others into the network of unfranchise owners. By doing so they will create leverage for themselves and their unfranchise business. The requirements to activate and qualify your unfranchise to begin receiving profits is as follows. You must recruit two people one on your left and one on your right side of your business. You must qualify your business by purchasing 200BV worth of product and then remain on an “transfer buy" of 50bv to 150bv each month. (BV is approx. 80% per $1 spent. Example, $100 = 80 BV) Once your network begins to grow your points start accumulating. Upon reaching certain points or bv on your left and right you will start to receive commission checks.
Market America is not a scam. Market America is a legitimate business opportunity with a wide range of market driven products. This is however, just like any other business. It takes commitment, goals and persistence to create success. Market America requires trainings, seminar attendance, hotel meetings and home presentations to successfully grow.
If you are interested in recruiting friends family and relatives as well as attending product parties and hotel presentations on a weekly basis, then this business is right for you. If you are not interested in selling products, recruiting others and attending meetings I would continue to look into other areas of business. Specifically online marketing. I would encourage you to look into the health and nutrition products Market America offers, because even though you may not be interested in the business, the products are great for your health.
