New Products – Marc Ashley
President and COO Marc Ashley ran onto the the stage because he could not hold back his excitement. Marc mentioned that this presentation is all about new developments and products.
Marc said, “First and foremost, our products are best in class and of the highest quality products.” All of Market America’s products have to pass through two tiers before they can be sold. This is not required, but Marc stated that this is the core of who we are, which is to provide people with the best products on the market. It’s the Market America difference!
Marc said, “You’re going to think I’m a broken record because I always say these are the best products on the planet and I truly believe it!” Marc started to name some of his favorite products such as Isotonix Digestive Enzymes with probiotics and the Daily Essentials kit. The company tries to provide products that help improve your quality of life and potentially live a longer and healthier lifestyle.
For the latest blockbuster product, Market America is following the same blueprint as OPC-3. At MAWC2019, Marc talked about a new product that featured black cumin seed and more specifically, it would revolve around, ThymoQuin, which is a clinically researched ingredient if Black Cumin Seed.
To further explain ThymoQuin, Marc invited Dr. David Foreman aka “The Herbal Pharmacist” to the stage. Dr. Foreman expressed that he personally flew to Israel to learn the ins and out about ThymoQuin. It’s an herb that’s been used for years because it continues to aid people’s health each and every day. ThymoQuin can help improve fasting glucose decrease blood pressure and fatty liver.
Then, Marc announced that Market America has created a product that combines ThymoQuin and Pycnogenol (found in OPC-3). It’s called thymenol. With this product, it will support memory, healthy brain function, cardiovascular health, and respiratory health. The company has developed a new multi-phase delivery system that has never been created. Thymenol features a cap-in-cap technology that allows for the unique combination of ThymoQuin and Pycnogenol. Thymenol will have a BV value of 80%. Marc said, “As an UnFranchise Owner, you are the only people in the world who can sell the combination of ThymoQuin and Pycnogenol.”
Marc invited Dr. Deedra Mason to the stage to talk about improving your lifestyle. Dr. Mason said, “It is never too early or too late to start taking care of your health. It is never too late to improve your quality of life.”
Consumable products was next on the agenda. Marc said, “We set out on yet another mission: to provide everyday consumable products that pay you and increase your commissions.” The goal is for UFOs to start earning BV and IBV the moment UFOs get out of bed. This all started with the Shopping Annuity Brand. At first, the SA Brand only gave BV to UFOs. Right after MAWC2019, UFOs were given the choice to receive BV OR IBV. Products on the line include toothpaste, deodorant, and hand soap. The SA brand products have more BV and IBV then consumable products from Partner Stores.
Marc introduced the latest products on the SA line, dog treats. The first product was Shopping Annuity Peanut Butter Blueberry Dog Treats. Starting today, UFOs will earn BV and IBV for feeding your pets. The treats will have a value of 45% BV or IBV. The second dog treat being added to the line is Chicken & Veggie Dog Chewies. The chewie will have a value of 45% BV or IBV. Coming soon, Shopping Annuity Green Tea will be available in the fall!
Then, Marc stressed the importance of purchasing tickets to MAWC2020. You need to be there! It’s also critical that you stay where all the action is in Miami. UFOs should stay at the host hotel. Until midnight this Sunday or unless sold out sooner, Marc announced that the company will give 26% IBV per night to UFOs who book their stay at the host hotel in Miami.
Product Presentation and Testimonials – Dennis Franks
Executive Vice President Dennis Franks entered the coliseum in an energetic way as he danced his way across the stage. Dennis explained that one of the reasons why he joined this company was to use the products. Dennis said “The core of this business begins with knowledge and attitude, and then comes retailing.”
The UnFranchise business is a retail-driven business. Market America provides products that are needed on the market, profitable, and enjoyable to sell. By retailing MA products, it can lead to high profits, business volume, and belief in the UnFranchise. Dennis said, “It’s all about becoming a product of the product.”
Dennis started to discuss newer products in Market America. First up was Thymenol. Thymenol promotes healthily blood flow, supports memory/focus, and supports hormonal balance in both men and women. Dennis said, “Do not underestimate how important retailing is in your business.”
Dennis invited four UFOs onstage to share their product testimonials. Josh “The Pitbull” Kohler shared how TLS changed his outlook on MMA training. Erin McMichael said that TLS helped her lose over 120 pounds and it led to more commission checks. Barbara Pupp explained how Isotonix has greatly helped her battle with lyme disease. Vena Pearson Hudgins discussed how this business has convinced her to go all in and grow with the UnFranchise.
Finally, Dennis teased a new jewelry line from Amber Ridinger. All of these items will be less than $120 and should launch in September.
