Market America World Conference 2017 has been one to remember. Because of the successful morning and afternoon sessions, the Shopping Annuity Breakout Session was a huge hit! When we say it was packed, that is an understatement. Every seat was taken and almost every inch of the floor was covered with people who want to better their lives and master the Shopping Annuity
Mr. Shopping Annuity Carl Eklund and UFO Marketing Director Elsi Pacheco co-emceed the festivities. Topics included SHOP Local, SHOP.COM, and of course, the Shopping Annuity. Check out the recap and photos from the event.
Eddie Alberty, Chifu Chen, Eugene Wallace, and Michael Brady
Vice President of Strategic Partnerships Eddie Alberty kicked things off with a presentation about SHOP Local and how it’s exponential growth is rapidly exploding. Joining him on stage were Shopping Annuity experts Eugene Wallace, Michael Brady, and Chifu Chen. The appeal to SHOP Local is it’s the best of both worlds. You receive Cashback rewards and fund your Shopping Annuity as well as support local businesses by making in-store purchases.
SHOP Local is easy to set up and follow. It all starts with linking your credit card to SHOP Local section in the SHOP Mobile app . From there, use the SHOP Mobile app to find stores in your area that are SHOP Local affiliated. The app will send push notifications when there is a SHOP Local store in your area. Then, the best part happens. Eat and earn Cashback!
The game changer of SHOP Local is that when UFOs sign up merchants, they will earn 1% IBV for ALL purchases made by UFOs at that store. That’s right. It does not matter if you are there or not. If you signed up the merchant, you will reap the rewards in terms of 1% IBV. This truly is the game-changer.
Eddie mentioned that through MeetON, UFOs can learn step-by-step ways to take advantage of SHOP Local. Right now, there is the SHOP Local Merchant Recruiting Trial on MeetON
Senior Manager Chifu Chen took the stage next to tackle the issue of how to approach a local merchant and convince them to join SHOP Local. It’s all about using social media to promote SHOP Local in order to show the merchants that it’s worth it to take a chance on Market America and The Shopping Annuity. Chifu also stressed for UFOs to use the hashtag, #GoSHOPLocal, in order for our partner merchants to stand out.
Carl Eklund introduced Shopping Annuity Ambassador Don Martin and welcomed him to the stage. Don talked about the magic of the Shopping Annuity and how it truly works. Don asked the crowd, “How many people are getting ripped off? Enough is enough. It’s time to get rewarded.”
Don talked about how the Shopping Annuity is a movement and a crusade. It’s tracked globally and no matter where you are in the world, you will earn Cashback in your own home country’s currency. Don’s personal story truly touched the crowd and how he realized that the Shopping Annuity not only saved him money, but it put his hard earned income back into his pocket. “This is going to happen either with you or without you. It’s ok to be a little nuts. We are nuts!”
Elsi Pacheco announced that there will be future MeetONs in regards to social media. Do you need help building your business? Do you know what Snapchat is or how it can benefit you? What’s Instagram Live? All of your questions about social media will be answered in these MeetON sessions with Shopping Annuity experts.
Mr. Shopping Annuity, Carl Eklund
Mr. Shopping Annuity Carl Eklund took the stage next. There’s hard to find someone in this company that is more dedicated to maximizing the Shopping Annuity than Carl Eklund. Carl discussed that it’s all about understanding. A lot of people don’t’ “get it” yet and that’s ok because it takes some time to make the transition to online shopping.
The first step of the mastering the Shopping Annuity is to become a base member. They are beginners and part of the club. The next step that UFOs should shoot for are to become a Shopping Annuity Master Member. Carl further explained that UFOs should master the Basic 5 because it builds a strong, fundamental background for business growth. It’s also important to duplicate all of these teachings into your business.
Field Vice President Arlene Lowy said that she understood the Shopping Annuity from Day 1. She has never missed a World Conference or an International Conference because she learned something new every time.
Arlene uses the Shopping Annuity as her selling point to recruit new business members. Arlene explained how she was able to convince a hospital CEO to join the business with her “Shopping Annuity wallet.” Arlene went with her step-by-step in the assessment and showed her how SHOP.COM can make her save and make money through the Shopping Annuity. Arlene explained the difference between horizontal and vertical marketing. Arlene doesn’t have dollar bills in her wallet anymore because she only believes in money that will pay her to shop.
Ryan and Sarah Stack
The dynamic duo of Shopping Annuity Ambassador Ryan Stack and Director of Internet Sales and Training Sarah Rose Stack closed the breakout session. The two both thanked the higher executives and the ones who paved the road because they set the tone for this company.
When you master the Shopping Annuity, why does that make every other part of your business easier? Ryan talked about the four things that are all colliding at SHOP.COM. NO ONE else is doing these four things. They are retail, advertising, communication, and income. It’s a great time to be an entrepreneur according to Ryan! The economy is in your favor now and it’s your responsibility to take advantage of it!
Sarah stressed that if you are using your own brands, then you will sell more products. That’s just a fact. According to Sarah, there are three things that will help build your business. The first thing to do is to master the Shopping Annuity. The second thing is to retail your products, which will be easier once you master the Shopping Annuity. The third thing is duplication. It is so much easier to recruit if you are living by the business and seeing success.
It all comes down to mastering the Shopping Annuity. If you can do that, this will truly change your life!
