If you just searched on the internet for ways to determine how to choose the best network marketing company you saw that there are dozens of articles and blog posts on the subject. I have done so as well and want to share with you a company that passes every test that I have come across.
Please note that we represent Financial Education Services (FES) and have since 2012.
My wife is now also full time and we are partners in building our business. FES has helped us replace two full time incomes. I would like to be clear and obvious to the reader that we are looking for solid, hard working, individuals that are, in turn, looking for a network marketing opportunity. However, don’t let that take away from the fact that this company is well worth researching as a part time or full time career.
So what are the attributes of the best network marketing company according to every article about the topic?
Let’s take a look at what they say and then describe the attributes of the FES.
Longevity– look for a company that’s been in business at least 5 years so you know that it has survived the period in which 95% of all companies fail.
FES- has been in business since 2004. Started network marketing business model in 2010.
Capitalization or Debt Owed– Find a company that is not leveraged to the hilt. They may have a great product and compensation plan but if the company doesn’t survive it won’t matter.
FES- is a debt free company and is growing consistently with a 30% to 100% annual sales revenue increase. It should be noted that FES carries an A+ BBB rating.
Ownership– Articles do differ on this topic. Some state that you should look for companies that still have the original ownership. Others say that the company should be publicly traded so that you can view financials. You’ll have to go with what you’re most comfortable with.
FES- is privately owned by the two gentlemen that started the company in 2004. They bring over 30 years of experience from the financial services industry. They have also teamed up with two people that bring over 50 years of experience of training and building sales teams in the network marketing industry. Their goal is to have the best network marketing company possible.
Product or Service– There should be a strong need for the product or service. The product or service should be unique and not easily purchased elsewhere. The product or service should be manufactured or delivered by the company and not outsourced.
FES- the core product is credit restoration. If you have stellar credit simply ask friends or any real estate agent or mortgage broker about the number of people with challenged credit. And, you can’t get credit restoration from a reputable company at a retail store. In addition, FES has a dozen other services such as online credit monitoring, identity theft protection, and a will and living trust. Lastly, the credit restoration service is provided by United Credit Education Services which is operated by the ownership of FES. United Credit Education Services also has an A+ BBB rating.
Inventory– Do you have to buy inventory when you start and/or continue to buy inventory?
FES- there is no inventory to purchase. However, FES does offer a Protection Plan to its Agents that contains all the services it offers for just $87/month. It’s a benefits package that also includes up to $100,000 in life insurance. An added feature is that, as an Agent, once you have 5 Protection Plan Customers or Agents on your team that are on the Protection Plan, your benefits package is free.
Customer Purchases– Will customers buy what you’re selling without becoming part of the business opportunity?
FES- the credit restoration service is sold to thousands of customers each year that are not Agents of FES nor ever become an Agent. In fact, a significant amount of the sales comes from referrals from professionals in credit related industries such as real estate, mortgage, banking and automobile.
Immediate Income– can someone earn income quickly or do they have to build a large team first?
FES- the commission alone on the credit restoration service is up to $100.00 giving a new Agent the opportunity to earn $400 per month on one sale a week, or $2,000 a month on 5 sales a week. This has nothing to do with building a team or recruiting. This does not include the residual income from each monthly payment your client makes.
Compensation Plan– Is the compensation plan designed to encourage building deep (helping your team) versus building wide (only helping yourself)?
FES- the compensation plan is designed to build deep. In fact, you only need 5 people front level to reach the top position in the company. And, part of the qualification for each new title and increase in pay is that you help others on your team.
Marketing and Technology– Does the company provide a customizable website, customizable marketing materials, and other marketing collateral both online and offline?
FES- Provided to each Agent is all of the above and very comparable to the top companies in the industry. Also, there are marketing videos, a CRM, and landing pages for each Agent.
Training– does the company provide online and offline training opportunities?
FES- There is a full curriculum of training consisting of an online video library, a series of weekly conference calls and webinars conducted by the top people in the company, and a series of live seminars that are conducted in cities around the country. This gives Agents the opportunity to learn from the top producers in the company on a regular basis so: 1) they do not have to rely on their sponsor’s level of knowledge or experience 2) they can develop a nationwide team and plug those people into the training system regardless of their own level of knowledge and experience.
I realize you may want further details on any and all of the above topics. As well, there may be other criteria that you may want to look into. This was written with the sole purpose of getting you to consider FES and contact me for more details.
FES may not be the best fit for you. You have to be or become passionate about what we do to help people with matters of personal finance. As well, you have to commit to your success in the business, be willing to get trained and execute what you learn. Success with any opportunity requires hard work and dedication.
Why contact us?
That’s a great question as well. In more than one article written about how to find the best network marketing company it suggests you enroll under someone that has proven and documented success with the company.
