The day 3 afternoon session was an action packed one. We highly anticipated the learning material that both Marc and JR had prepared to present to us, a captive audience. This day has been so excited, we can hardly believe that there is only one day left of this convention! Until then, let’s chat about Day 3 afternoon session:
Shopping Annuity Technology Advancements & Much More (Part 2) – Marc Ashley
“How many of you are going to shop smarter, not harder?” Marc Ashley jumped right into his presentation after a quick lunch break, announcing that this afternoon is just packed full of information he couldn’t wait to dive in to. He recapped what we discussed in his presentation yesterday: updates to the shopping site, SHOP Local, gift cards, Shop Direct, Shop Marketplace and Shop Buddy…just to name a few!
Marc immediately pulled up a few successful UnFranchise Owners who shared their personal shopping experiences and how they use the site to get paid to shop for the things that they already need. The way that these smart shoppers earn Cashback on all of the things that the already need to buy is so inspiring! We picked up several tips from them on smart-shopper. Moral of the story: “Invest your shopping. Don’t waste your shopping!”
After hearing these stories, Marc reminded us about additional incentives (as if we needed more than Cashback) for shopping on SHOP.COM including the Shopping Annuity Bonus Program and how you can earn big on the BV & IBV already going in to your organization. And then a HUGE announcement, All UFO’s that qualify for the SABP will now qualify for free shipping for 12 MONTHS! No annual fee, just straight free shipping, delivered on time. Marc continued to explain how they changed the SABP from a pool to a program so that everyone has a chance to be rewarded. One of the updates we love is that all Global Shopping will count towards the SABP as well! Additionally, as of April 1st, all SABP bonus BV/IBV can be placed in [any] other SABP’s qualifier pools – they do not have to be sponsored by you.
One of the favorite announcements from the afternoon – a new Cashback Activity Tracker Report! On this new report, redeeming Cashback is as easy as clicking and you can get it direct deposited right into your bank account! Marc also shared with us some of the redesigned and relaunched websites like TLS, Isotonix and more.
Marc was full of updates this afternoon – and possibly one of the best updates – for those of us out there that wish to have the UFO Black Card, but maybe get rejected. Well, NOW, you can apply for a secured credit card with Market America and after 12 months, you will automatically get enrolled into the UFO Black Card Program and receive your own card. Additional updates and material covered by Marc were: and updated UnFranchise Auto, the UnFranchise Business Accounts (that will now have OneCart products available), UFMS updated reports available in all countries, digital map of your organization.
Now let’s talk about growing your business globally. Global.SHOP.COM is being expeanded into additional countries, the program will soon include partner stores and you will be able to shop and earn BV and IBV globally AND many major partner stores will now ship to you internationally.
“Drum roll please,” Marc announced. Soon, Global.SHOP.COM will now become SHOP.COM Global with a 100% overhauled, completely redesigned, mobile responsive, and you can expect exponential growth in Asian Pacific coutnries – including Malaysia!
Marc wrapped his presentation to a completely standing and cheering crowd, celebrating all of the amazing updates that him and his team just presented to the business hungry UnFranchise Owners.
MPCP3 – JR Ridinger
JR Ridinger’s saturday presentations are famous for high energy and jam-packed information. This session started out no different. To a mix of flames and fireworks, the Founder, Chairman and CEO came out to greet the eager crowd. “Tonight is about you. I am trying to reach into you and see how I can ignite that spark and reach into you. The question is, are you ready to get off the treadmill and make yourself a six-figure residual income.”
We are so lucky that in this business, for $129, we get access to basically SHOP.COM packed up in a box. Any major that we prefer, based on our interests (motives, Isotonix, TLS, Conquer). With just that small investment, you have everything that you would ever need to grow an online market and shopping business. You can save people who are missing this opportunity, just by introducing them to the Shopping Annuity.
Especially if you feel like you are using this weekend as a bit of a reboot, one thing you take away needs to be the MPCP formula: Basic 5 Duplication, Shopping Annuity, Digital Leverage. You will produce a much faster income, the more you will earn the checks and you team will grow at an uncontrollable rate.
“What does ‘UnFranchise’ mean to you?” JR asked if you really understand what having an UnFranchise Business means to you. JR explained the difference between what having a Franchise and an UnFranchise Business is. The freedom that you have when you own an UnFranchise business blows anything else out of the water.
“You know that when I met Dennis and the others, I didn’t have any products or a what or a how. But you know what, I had a WHY.” JR explained that he always knew what his why was, and though many people didn’t understand his idea or know what they were getting themselves into, they loved and believed in JR’s why. It is because they bought into that why, that Market America is her today. All of the executives and the early pioneers believed in the WHY. In a Franchise, rarely would your why be the same why as a company that you work for. But in an UnFranchise, your why is the reason that a company exists. “But, how often do you find a company whose why is you finding your why?” JR told us that the only thing that the corporate team wants is to make UnFranchise Owners successful. They think about your why every single day and it is the fuel of Market America.
The CEO explained to us how in this business, you have the power to create your own economy. No longer do you just have to succumb to the economy around you. And now, The Shopping Annuity makes its debut. By converting your spending into earning, lowering prices and the cost of shopping, while providing residual income to the members.
Collectively, with all of the tools that we have in this business, and the availability of the products to us, this digital network is unstoppable. You are getting 100% of the credit for everything that you or the people in your organization buy. When you are successful, you have the opportunity to help others climb to the top. The most exciting part of this business is that everyone has the chance to be successful.
JR flashed back to video from a few previous presentations at conventions, referring to instances where he showed us how we need to take the steps to the top. You can’t skip any steps, or take any shortcuts to get there. You have to be able to take the time to take the proper steps. In the 45 year plan, you may never get there! But with the 2-3 year UnFranchise plan and doing what he has shown us time and time again, this is a foolproof plan and we WILL find success with the UnFranchise Business. He showed us how easy it is to find the people to “climb the stairs” with us, and in a short amount of time, our network will explode.
JR asked how many of us wish we could turn the clock back in order to make better quality of our time elapsed. He asked, “how would you use that time?” He suggested he vision that we have only been in this business for 6 months – no matter where we are in the process – and start over again, figuring out how to make better use of our time and finding the ways that are more beneficial to grow our business and to do only the things that are important in the MPCP formula in order to be a master UFO.
He explained how Market America is actually a “Dimaryp”…the most opposite of a pyramid scheme that a company could possible be – a reverse pyramid. Sales from the top go to the bottom to help newer people, you want people below you to succeed and this is all about helping each other and duplication. It does not matter when you joined the business because everyone on your team earns 100% of the credit.
JR shared some additional experiences through some personal stories about people doubting him and doubting this business. He joked about just how wrong they all are and how the proof is undeniable, just look around. Unlike any other company we have an UnFranchise System; an open system where everyone is able to support each other, broken up into 4 parts. And in order for that to work we need superstars to help others become superstars. In our system, we all operate under the “One Team, One Dream” principal.
He continued on to address a recent issue that had been brought to the Market America family. A recent group that left the UnFranchise Business on very bad terms. JR and the entire executive team, top UFOs and many other entrepreneurs have been touched by this experience and were happy to hear some of the information that JR was able to share about putting this troubled product to rest. He brought Valerie St. Louis onto stage, a UFO that was personally affected by this. She shared how her passion has been restored with the help of JR and Loren and MAIC, despite the troubles that her team has had.
“When we started this business, we only had this one product: belief.” He shared some additional stories about coming to work with each of the executive team members and how they kept him going throughout the years, especially the early ones when things were the toughest. But through all the years, what got him through, was the belief that they had in him.
If you can redefine your own economic status quo, you can find the success to this business. JR challenged you to make a decision, reset the clock, and redefine how it is that you are going to spend your life. “I’ve bled my heart out to you about the Shopping Annuity, where we have been and where we were going,” he explained that in order to do this, he had to do something [for us] that he had never done before, referring to what he did a year ago at IC 2015, walking across a tightrope with a wheelbarrow full of bricks. He asked, “do you believe?”
JR found a way today to really reach deep into the souls of the UnFranchise Owners in this coliseum. We were all completely feeling his message and what he was trying to help us to understand. We believe in the power of the UnFranchise Business and the Shopping Annuity.
The action isn’t over! Join us tomorrow for day 4 of MAIC 2016!
