Market America, which was founded in 1992, and is headquartered in Greensboro, North Carolina, is what is known as an UnFranchise business. It offers its affiliates the opportunity to earn a great residual income through the sell of products by providing them with the right marketing tools. The company also supplies the products, and gives the associates their own Web Portals so they can set up and manage their own business. Startup costs are minimal, and people who join the business can start on a part-time or flexible basis.
The company offers a variety of products and brands that range from healthcare and nutrition to cosmetics. Affiliates, which are known as UnFranchise Owners, are given a detailed plan to follow in order to be successful, and the shipping and distribution, as well as most of the paperwork is handled by the company, making it possible for the Owners to keep their focus on their customers’ needs. So far, Owners have earned over $3 billion in commissions and retail sales.
There are many Market America Events that take place in many areas of the globe each year. These events include; The Moving Up Seminar, which is held in Miami, Florida; The East Coast Product Symposium, in Atlantic City, New Jersey; The Hong Kong Leadership School, held in Hong Kong; The Singapore Leadership School, in Singapore; The Taiwan Leadership School, held in Taipei; and The Northeast Regional, which is held in Providence, Rhode Island. A complete schedule of these events can be found on their website.
The company’s Vice President of Sales is Jim Winkler, who has also been an UnFranchise member with Market America since 1995. He feels that if all the Owners have the right kind of attitude, or the ability to adjust their attitude, coupled with the knowledge needed to run this type of business, then they will continue to be successful in it.
