How long have you been chasing a income in network marketing?
Let's face it, most people have a difficult time earning a long term, residual check in network marketing.
I know that for years I jumped from company to company to company looking for that one company that I could actually be successful with. The one company that I could help other people be successful with. Then I found One24 and realized how it was different, and why I knew that I could make it with this one!
Mark Seyforth created One24 out of a love hate relationship with this industry. He loved the fact that network marketing offered people the opportunity to change lives, spend time with families and have control of their lives. But.... He hated the fact that so many people FAILED.
Face it... that is reality. I have watched the transitions from network marketing to affiliate marketing after the launch of Magnetic Sponsoring a few years ago. Companies like MLSP and Johnathon Budd's programs. There are literally millions and millions of people who have tried network marketing and failed. The philosophy behind these programs are simple, since so many people fail in network marketing why not advertise to those people! Take advantage of the fact that people want success and that 97% of them fail. But at the end of the day these programs ended up becoming the opportunity. There were a lot of people who had success with those affiliate programs but not with their MLM or network marketing companies.
Why did affiliate marketing take off? It was simple, there was no structure, you didn't have to retail a bunch of products or store a bunch of crap in your garage, you didn't have to worry about your short leg or your long leg in a matrix. Plus a lot of them were sexy, all you needed was a cool capture page that got people excited. You didn't even need substance because it was all short term products only. You had a bunch of people creating very short term success, creating a blog and then start selling you a bunch of crap at a cheap price... Well that is ok if you just want to start over and over and over..
Then I found something different.....
This is why I love One24/Day1, because they are not network marketing and they are not affiliate marketing. I am not saying that either of those are bad things.. They are just not for me and I will tell you why.
I work 60 hours a week and have for the last 18 years. I don't have time to go out there and retail a bunch of products and I don't want to. Network marketing companies are set up for the top 2% to 3% to make most of the money. If you have ever looked at a marketing plan for a network marketing company it will drive you crazy and you have to understand the philosophy behind it. Most of the companies are designed to entice you in the beginning to spending much more then you expected to. They will start off with things like $49 for your distributor kit but then they will begin to talk about starter kits, and business kits and executive kits and before you know it you are spending $1000 to get started! Then you will see enticements about becoming a manager,executive,leader whatever they want to call it and this usually means you have to do $2000 in your first month and since you have already spent $1000 to get started run out and find a friend to do the same thing and if you can't, just get another $1000 worth of product and YOU ARE THERE AND ON YOUR WAY!
But wait a minute....
I now have $2000 worth of product and have not brought 1 person into the company!!! That is ok they say, go out there and retail the product, have a few people over and begin the process again...
In theory this does work for some. I know that years ago I had some success doing it this way with almost the exact same plan as I see today. This generates some great success SHORT TERM because you are being paid bonuses on the $1000 orders. The problem with this is it is not sustainable and over the long term it fizzles out. That is why companies have what they call "breakage" which filters up to the company. Breakage is UNQUALIFIED income, which means, it was our money but we can't have it....
Just step back, look at the plans that are out there from a non-emotional point of view. Even the top tiers will have things like you must have at least 3 qualified legs, going $250,000 in volume but no more then 60% can come out of 1 leg.... Have you ever wondered... WHY! But that is not even that big of a deal, were it becomes difficult is when you look at the qualifications it takes to maintain your business. This is usually a group volume of some sort, $1500 to $3000 a month. The issue becomes, if you do not meet these qualifications, you can lose your down line completely. Think about that, you build a down line for 3 years and bam... you could lose it by not retailing enough product. I know, because it happened to me years ago! But I never blamed the industry because I knew I was just busy with other things. I love this industry so I always stayed plugged into something, but I knew there had to be a better way!
Let me give you a run down of the companies that I have been involved in. Some of them I may not even remember their names.
NuSkin- 1 year
BodyWIse International- 3 years
Sunrider- 2 minutes
Herbalife- 2 minutes
Shaklee- 2 minutes
Trump Network- 2 minutes
Numis- 2 months
After I had lost my down-line with BodyWise it was hard for me to really get excited again. I knew I loved the industry but I also new the pitfalls and I hated failure.
Then while I was beginning to build my Numis business I was on-line and I came across this short video with Mark Seyforth in it about how he loved the industry but hated the failure rate. (see video at phoenix124.com He began talking about success and failure it all made sense to me. A light came on and I knew I had found a company that I could feel good about sponsoring people into again. Something I could believe in. You see that is the hard part for most of us that are in our 3rd, 4th or 5th program. We have lost most of our belief so it makes it hard for us to sponsor people. Do you remember your first program? You know you sponsored people out of sure excitement and belief. That belief began to fade as you failed in more companies. That is why so many people waste money with these affiliate programs that promise to help you sponsor people without talking to your friends and family.
If you truly believed you were going to get wealthy in your program why wouldn't you want to talk to your friends and family? Think about it.
Well I think you get my point and this is getting kind of long.
One24 has developed a linear, profit sharing system that works for the little person and now they are about to launch their sister company called "Day1" that is one of the most unique programs that has ever been developed. It will be charity based company with a very simple program. It will be so simple that anyone will be able to grasp it, do it and be successful at it. The profit sharing will be unlocked by simply sponsoring 1 person who wants to be a "Consumer for Charity"(C4C by sponsoring 1 person the C4C will have the potential of earning $500 a month on the growth of the company. Day1 will also pay down 15 levels without any qualifying aspects. Going to be huge and everyone can participate. You could actually make thousands upon thousands of people from just sponsoring 1 person. Imagine what the retention rate will be with the profit sharing and people who usually never make any money start making money!! The Sky is the limit!!
Find out more by visiting my website at brucepatrick.com . The official launch of Day1 is September 1st,2012. We have begun insider placement for anyone who is currently part of One24 or joins One24 prior to July 31st,2012. Pre launch will begin August 1st, 2012 but will be limited to the first 5000 people.
Come join me and let's change people's lives together!
