Welcome to Day 2 of MAIC2018! Day 1 was full of magic moments as JR Ridinger dazzled the crowd up on stage with his electric presentations. Will Day 2 be able to top that? You bet!
Once again, Vice President Andrew Weissman started the festivities with his social networking address. Andrew quickly recapped an eventful Day 1 and informed the crowd to continue the conversation on social media with the hashtag, #MAIC2018. Andrew invited Actor, Singer, and Creator of DNA Miracles Duane McLaughlin on the stage to discuss the DNA Bathtime box. Duane reduced the price from over $40 to a special Convention discount to $29.95 and 10 BV.
IBV and Concierge – Marc Ashley
The first presentation of the day involved President & COO Market America Worldwide Marc Ashley. Marc explained that the Shopping Annuity is no longer a concept, but a reality. Ideas on the agenda are BV, IBV, new products, and more ways to earn Cashback. The Shopping Annuity consists of four crucial parts: the right plan, the right people, the right products, and the right technology.
Marc said, “You are like an Uber business. You don’t own any store, but you reap all the benefits like the revenue and sales.” This is a billion dollar industry. Market America is built on product and powered by people. The business starts with cutting edge, revolutionary products that essentially sell market themselves. You don’t need to be a salesperson to market these products. This is BV. Everyday essential products bring in IBV.
One of the hottest products in Market America is Trim Tea. Trim Tea is setting records for the company, selling out in preorders six separate times. The product is working as Marc showed positive customer reviews on the big screen. Marc introduced the latest product in the Trim Tea series called Trim Café, which is brand new drink for you morning routine! Trim Café is a coffee that supports and helps promote weight loss, and curbs your appetite. Trim Café is gluten free and can be ordered today!
Director of Clinical Education and Research Dr. Deedra Mason ND joined Marc on stage to discuss how UFOs are looking for healthier products. Customers are looking for clean ingredients, gluten free options, no GMOs, and most importantly, products that work. This was the foundation that Trim Café was built around. Dr. Dee explained to the crowd how TrimCafé combines WellTrim iG with Arabica Coffee powder. The result is a smooth taste with low acidity. Plus, you can’t beat the price. A box of 15 servings only costs a little over $28, which averages out to $1.90 per cup, which is less than the average cup at Starbucks.
The next product reveal was Priobiotics10. This product promotes a strong immune system, colon health, stress, and helps support weight loss efforts. Priobiotics10 will be available to order next week. Dr. Dee said, “For a healthy, long life, you need probiotics. The road to a healthy life is through healthy intestines.” Without proper digestive barriers, our bodies cannot properly balance important nutrients that need to be absorbed and unhealthy factors can’t be eliminated. Priobiotics10 will help counteract that potential problem.
More revolutionary products are on the way. Products coming soon are the TLS Kreamer (keto creamer), Pure Marine Collagen, and Isotonix Greens. Marc’s goal is to create more consumable products with Market America and the Shopping Annuity so UFOs can earn more BV. The first product created was the Shopping Annuity toothpaste, which gives UFOs 50% BV. Now, SA organic hand soap, SA organic hand sanitizer, and SA deodorant will be available to order next week. The goal is to make these products global. On the horizon are razors for men and women, shaving cream and shave balm, mouthwash, sunscreen, personal wipes, and premium coffee. All products are on the Shopping Annuity Line and will allow UFOs to earn BV on these purchases.
Marc then transitioned from BV products to IBV products. “BV is the lake and IBV is the ocean.” IBV was created 17 years ago to give UFOs an immediate pay raise and new stream of income. Even though many retailers are going through tough times, these distributors are now selling more of their products online and Market America is partnering with them each and everyday. This builds a new distribution of business.
The IBV program has over 300+ of the top e-retailers over the world such as Target, Walmart, and Best Buy. With additions to the program such as Shopbuddy and eGift Cards, you can earn IBV on almost every product you buy on the Internet. New eGift cards such as The North Face, Krispy Kreme, and Panera Bread can be used to earn instant IBV. Gift cards on the way are Uber and Uber Eats. “You have to spend the money anyway. You must as well earn money through the (UnFranchise) Business.”
The mission is to earn IBV on every dollar you spend. However, there is over $4.8 trillion dollars spent offline. With Market America and SHOP.COM, you get paid on these offline purchases such as haircuts, dining out, and services like dry cleaning. This is where SHOP Local comes in. In two years, the amount of SHOP Local merchants has gone from 2,000 to 20,000. To earn via SHOP Local, download the SHOP mobile app, link your credit cards, and search for any local stores that are affiliated with SHOP Local. Plus, if you sign up a merchant for SHOP Local, you will earn 1 % IBV on all SHOP Local purchases at that store even if it is not your order.
In addition to these updates, SHOP Local now has a partnership with Yelp. If you refer someone to a restaurant through Yelp (does not have to be a UFO), you will earn 1% IBV on their purchase. More stores are being added each day and the program is expanding globally into markets such as Singapore and Hong Kong. Affiliate partner IBV is awarded at the time the partner sends us the order before Market America gets paid (within 48 to 72 hours of the order).
Marc highlighted how SHOP.COM is the perfect place for back-to-school shopping. Right now, there is a Masterpass promotion where you can receive up to 20% off on SHOP.COM OneCart orders. It’s also the perfect place to shop for your food with SHOP Groceries. There’s no need to go to the store for daily purchases such as canned / boxed food, pantry options, and kitchen supplies. Earn IBV on these purchases! Now, you can earn IBV on your prescriptions with SHOP.COM Pharmacy Discounts. It is SHOP.COM’s first prescription drug store and it is now live! It’s basically Shopbuddy for your prescription drugs.
In a groundbreaking announcement, Marc introduced a game changer, which involves double IBV. Marc said it’s “time to go back to the basics.” The IBV machine is currently being built and starting next Thursday, IBV will begin to increase significantly. For example, The Home Depot currently has an IBV rate of 2%. As of next week, it would’ve been 4%, but it will increase to 5%. Restaurant.com will go from 6% to 16%. These are just a few of the hundreds of stores that will offer more IBV. Marc then showed how UFOs can double and triple dip on purchases through eGift Cards. Market America is allowing you to order 50 IBV of Market America products each month on your UnFranchise AutoShop towards the IBV Compensation plan.
Marc welcomed his brother to the stage, President of SHOP.COM Steve Ashley. Steve announced that SHOP.COM is the 65th ranked online marketplace on the Internet Retailer, #96 in the Asia 500, and #1 on the Top Ten List for online retailers. The fastest growing site is SHOP.COM Global and the site ships to over 190 countries. In order to receive faster shipping, expedited shipping will now be offered for various products.
Steve said, “Our search needed to get easier, cleaner, and more relevant. The new interface is now available and will eventually be in all markets within a few weeks.” There is now a SHOP.COM Sidekick that will stay with you on the page. Click a product and add it to your cart and you will see it in your sidekick. There’s no reason to leave the page. Steve said that “we are taking the shopping out of shopping.”
Now, you can submit your list to a concierge and have them find it for you on the site with the new SHOP.COM Concierge Service. This will first start with UFOs and then eventually reach your customers. Build your list by uploading your products via list, product image, or keywords on SHOP Concierge. This will create your online grocery list so you don’t have to spend an hour or two to find them. Your Concierge will offer you multiple options to find you the best deals and prices. It’s like walking into the grocery store and your cart is already filled! The signup sheet will start in September and the first invites for SHOP Concierge will go out in October.
Finally, Marc summed up his presentation by restating that the Shopping Annuity is now a reality.
