Everything You Need to Grow and Manage Your Business – Marc Ashley
President & COO Marc Ashley entered to “We Will Rock You” and the whole arena was on their feet. Marc first recapped his presentation from yesterday, which covered how Market America is ahead of the curve in terms of online shopping. Marc discussed SHOP Buddy and highlighted that if Market America products are being sold on Ebay or Amazon, SHOP Buddy will show the consumer the non-tampered, certified product from SHOP.COM.
Marc gave the legal team a shout out for putting pressure on 85 sellers who have sold Market America products on Amazon. Market America gained all of the names of the sellers and in just 6 short weeks, the legal team was able to remove 53 of those sellers.
“Everyone should be doing the Shopping Annuity because we want people to become Master UFOs and Shopping Annuity All-Stars.” Marc highlighted the Shopping Annuity Bonus Program and how since its inception 8 quarters ago, Market America has awarded over $18 million extra BV and over 7 million extra IBV. Now, all UFOs that qualify for the SABP receive free shipping for 12 months!
The BV Bonus has been increased for the SABP bonus. It’s all based upon what you purchase. It’s also easier to hit the SABP because all BV and IBV purchases count for the SABP. You also will earn a 20% bonus on BV and IBV if you meet the program. All of your SHOP Local purchases also count to the SABP. This gives everyone more of a reason to hit the SABP now,
Another reason to hit the SABP now is that you can give your volume to anyone on your team [down line] even if you did not sponsor them. The updated online shopping reports on SHOP.COM make it easier to track your SABP orders. If you did not get rewarded for your purchases, you can now click on a link to get help and get the Cashback that you deserve. Even if you have spyware or malware, SHOP.COM will identify the amount of Cashback you will receive and will disable your adblock for you. Trouble with Cashback? Go to Cashbackfaq.com for all of your questions and concerns regarding Cashback.
Marc shifted gears and started to talk about your UnFranchise business. Take advantage of all the tools provided by Market America such as the UFVP or SHOP Mobile app to grow your business. Using the SHOP.COM Black Business card will give you extra BV and IBV benefits. You can also manage and track your reports on UnFranchise.com. Even if you are denied a credit card, you can still enter the SHOP.COM credit card program.
“UnFranchise.com is going through a complete and massive makeover.” Now, if your prospective business partners can not afford to sign up in the business, they can use a Paypal credit plan and pay for it 6 months later, interest free and you still earn the BV. You can also profit from your ticket purchases.
The UnFranchise autoship option received a major overhaul in order to simplify the process. There is now an UnFranchise Autoship Queue to make monthly orders more flexible. Also, over six million products were loaded into the One Cart Program on UnFranchise.com. You can even use your Cashback to pay for your orders as well.
With the updated text notifications, you will never miss a payment or shipping for your business. You can get updates on your new customers and the status of your commission checks. Other updates involve learning about yours and your teammates status in your reports. It’s easier to communicate with sponsors now in the new reports. It’s all about simplifying the process to find teammates basic report info easier.
Marc announced that Cherie Foong is now the new Country Manager in Market Malaysia.
Belief, MPCP + MPCP² + MPCP³, The Why That Changes the World – JR Ridinger
The final presentation of the conference belongs to the Chairman and CEO, JR Ridinger. JR started off his speech thanking his Market America family, saying he wants to have fun today and promote the Shopping Annuity. JR then went into the python story and preached that visualization is everything. If you see it can happen, go out and do it.
“Many of us our prisoners of our own thinking. Do you know what the hardest prison to get out of in the world? Your own mind.” It’s all about conceiving and achieving by believing. Do you believe that the Shopping Annuity could change the world? The difference between belief and real belief is taking risk to make it happen. JR mentioned his tightrope story and wheelbarrow walk and referenced it on the screen.The wheelbarrow represents you and the Shopping Annuity. JR said he will do the walk again when they hit 50,000 Shopping Annuity Master Members. However, JR will sit in the wheelbarrow and have someone push him across because JR believes in the UFOs so much that he’s willing to put his life on the line.
The number one product that JR sells is belief, which is the most valuable thing in the world for JR. The four beliefs that you must have are belief belief in something greater than yourself, belief in yourself, belief in the business / company, and the belief in your sponsors and teams.
JR discussed the Cocoon story and how it takes belief to get somewhere in life. JR hopes that all the UFOs learned something new at MAWC2017. It’s not I can’t, but I will. “Many people have been in the right place at the right time, but many people have not acted on it.” This is in reference to the Shopping Annuity and converting your spending into earning. It is impossible to change the world and create your own economy.
The Shopping Annuity is the definition of an economy. When you sign up as an UnFranchise owner, you get a multimillion dollar business at the tip of your fingertips. Because of duplication, you can make more money without putting as much time in. This paradigm shift of the economy is either going to happen with you or without you.
JR invited Marc Ashley, Steve Ashley, Marty Weissman, and Dennis Franks onto the stage to celebrate the accomplishments of the company and the Shopping Annuity. Marc said “JR’s vision hit home with me and our focus this year is on the Shopping Annuity.”
Steve Ashley discussed how the Shopping Annuity is what makes Market America unique. The Shopping Annuity actually gives you cash back. No other business does this! Marty walked out of the Shopping Annuity Summit with more passion than ever for the future of the Shopping Annuity. Dennis Franks stated that through the Shopping Annuity and the Basic 5, we can create the economy of the future.
“If you could push a button to get it all, you would. All we have to do is match the product with each person’s assessment,” screamed JR. Plans for the Shopping Annuity’s future include UFO testimonials using Curalate, demographic details for recommendations, a savings and BV / IBV meter, hand picked partner stores, life events accounted for, and a personalized drag and drop shopping list.
Other plans for the Shopping Annuity include making it easier with the push of a button. Everything you want is shipped to make it faster and transparent. Ideas include a financial planning app and reorder tool. SHOP design and universal Shopping Cart are on the horizon as well. A big selling point that JR showcased was the improvement of digital aggregation and a better tracking system. The Shopping Annuity’s future explosion can be compared to Uber’s growth. “This software for digital aggregation is more complicated than the software it took to get to the moon.”
JR showed the video of comparing success to breathing. You should want success like you want air to breathe. Everyone wants a nest egg or financial security and freedom. The shopping annuity is the solution.
JR brought up UFOs on stage and played the “Secret to success” presentation that discusses how to reach the top. People try to reinvent how to get to the top, but JR and the executives have already showed us the way to the top. If you follow the proven business plan, you will take the stairway to residual income. It’s all about taking the daily steps to establish the weekly goals in order to go up the stairway, one step at a time. If you climb the stairs with your teammates, you have a better chance of reaching the top.
JR’s next example involved the wheel and how you can’t left life just pass you by. You have to take control of your life and live it to the fullest. “This is the greatest accomplishment you can achieve.” JR also brought out the “Joe Nobody” Gravestone, which teaches you to that you can do anything you want, but only if you are not afraid to live. If you succeed, you will silence all of the critics. JR destroyed the gravestone and said he is now free!
“We can change the world. We can change the world!”
What an amazing World Conference! We will see you at International Convention in August to celebrate 25 years of Market America #MAIC2017
