Market America is a multi-level product brokerage firm that prides itself on being one of its kind. The company distributes a range of high-quality products to clients who want to become entrepreneurs able to earn cash from the comfort of home. Currently, Market America is available in several companies, including America, Canada and Singapore. Their main office can be found in Greensboro, NC and has been in business since 1992. The creators and owners of the company are JR and Loren Ridinger. There are over a million people currently distributing Market America products, and these people are referred to as independent distributors. Over 650 office workers are employed by the company to help independent distributors gets started and complete sales.
There are a few different product lines that Market America offers to their independent distributors. You can choose between selling personal care items, cleaning products, jewelry, diet supplies and supplements and makeup. These products are created by affiliated corporations and provided to Market America at a discounted rate. The independent distributor then chooses the product line they’d like to sell and the cost of the product goes up so that the distributor as well as M.A. makes money off of the purchase. Currently, the company uses Shop.com, which was acquired by Bill Gates in 2012, to showcase their products and provide distributor information. The product lines are specifically named AutoWorks, Pet Health, Isotonic and Snap. Once a product line is chosen, independent distributors are sold a website package where a domain name and hosting is available. You will then be responsible for paying a monthly fee to keep your website active and to attend regular seminars provided by the company itself.
Market America likes to think of itself as the “Unfranchise”, since you’re still able to become your own business owner selling someone else’s products without the rules and guidelines that often come with owning a franchise locally. In fact, the only rules that the company has for its distributors is to attend routine seminars found online and throughout the country each year. The online seminars will be available through video and web conferencing, and you will learn valuable marketing and sale methods to better suit your entrepreneurial needs.
