Michelle and Tony Molinaro
We are often asked “Why Conquer?” For Tony and I, it was any easy fit into our UnFranchise. We have always focused on retail first. The SHOP.COM website was the main focus of our business. We became very knowledgeable on the products, stores and tools within the site. We have always treated our online business as we did our traditional Brick and Mortar business. We owned and operated a restaurant in Connecticut for over 20 years. We would never go down the street and have dinner at another restaurant so why would we shop from any other site then our own? It never made sense to us to NOT buy the items we were using on a daily bases from our own business. Even if it was just cashback, we looked at it as “A drippy faucet fills the bucket”. When we looked at the different divisions within the Market America University that we could diversify with we were always very curious as to what Conquer truly was. One day, I had the pleasure of meeting Amanda Ridinger at the South East Regional. I asked her to please explain Conquer Entertainment more in-depth to gain a better understanding of the business.
Amber started to speak and within minutes, I realized Conquer was the division that fit best into our online presence. Conquer Entertainment is all about Lifestyle Marketing through utilizing the Internet. It is a platform that helps established artists have a better Internet footprint while converting their fans into customers. This was very intriguing to us as Internet marketers. We realized we do the same thing with our Market America products and the Affiliate stores. We create contests and campaigns for marketing purposes. We penetrate our circle of influence by soft selling them within our online presence. We write blogs or create posts for our social media accounts. By helping an artist connect their brand to a product within our portfolio of products, this will create additional income for the artist and commissions for our whole team.
We learned very quickly that artists surround themselves with very supportive and loyal individuals. These individuals have a wide variety of jobs such as makeup artists, personal trainers, fashion experts, chefs, or financial advisors. Each one of these individuals’ inner circles consists of people that are purchasing items such as shampoo, conditioner, paper towels, coffee, tea, laundry soap, garbage bags and occasionally a bag of dog food. This will start the expansion of people leading to more team members, which helps us to grow our Shopping Annuity.
As UnFranchise owners, we are gifted with all the tools needed to become an Internet marketer, but the one missing piece is our participation. “If our mouth is not open your business is closed.” We learned this lesson over 30 years ago when we opened our first traditional business. This action is still true today when conducting business in cyberspace. It is our job to brand ourselves as well as the product lines and affiliate stores that we represent. When we pair this together with an artist, our followers are intrigued to learn more about what we are doing.
