Market America Review
by David Harris
Market America, by JR and Loren Ridinger and found at marketamerica.com, is a company that uses a very slightly different model of multilevel marketing they call ‘unfranchised’ business opportunity.
However, no matter how you label an MLM, it is still an MLM, and that means distributors recruiting new distributors, ad infinitum, so that money flows upward in a pyramid shape.
MarketAmerica marks up the pricing of their products so high that selling it is an actual difficult challenge, making recruiting others as your way to get anywhere with them.
On top of this practice of pricing excessively, they do not advertise their products nor do they want the sales reps to do so either.
It leaves you little choice but to go after people individually, or through meetings.
The ones you manage to sucker in you will encourage them to bring people to the next meetings, and so on.
The term ‘unfranchised’ is actually nothing at all like a small business where you sell the products yourself the way you want.
Investment costs are so prohibitive that it is virtually impossible to make much.
I have talked to user customers who got triple billed and had to make chargebacks through their banks.
Many have complained that after sinking 20k to 30k into Market America were only able to earn about one or two percent of their investment after a few months.
Another misleading practice MarketAmerica and its reps use are to convince prospects that shopping online will be immensely profitable.
There’s almost no chance of that happening.
They also misinform you that all you need is two people when the reality is that to make anything even close to returning on your investment, it will take closer to 50.
If you have the kind of money to invest thousands into something for about eight months or so before you see any profit, I can think of better ways to invest all that capital than MarketAmerica.
If you don’t, then do not get anywhere near this thing – you would get paid way better at a burger franchise, than this so-called ‘unfranchise’.
Even though they do offer some kind of product, ridiculously high priced as it may be, to avoid the stigma of being labeled a pyramid scheme by fractions, Market America will never ever get a recommendation from us.
Thanks for reading the review…
