OK so…How’s that MLM Working Out?


OK…So, How's That MLM Working Out?


Your MLM — How’s It Working Out?

I’ve always been a believer is scripted sales and prospecting. It just always seemed logical to me that the professional sales person, by virtue of repetition, should be better at selling than the average customer should be at resisting the sell.

This is an important topic in prospecting for recruits in the the MLM business because, as anybody will know who is trying to build an MLM organization, if there’s one thing most people resent more than being ‘sold to’… it’s being recruited into an activity that statistically the vast majority of people have a bad attitude about.

That being the case, it seems to me that the people ‘we’ (i.e. those of us trying to build an MLM organization) will encounter two kinds of people:

  1. Those who have been in MLM but are currently not.

  2. Those who have been and still are in MLM.

  3. Those who don’t even know what MLM is.

Type 3’s are pretty rare nowadays.

Nowadays, I think we’re more likely to encounter Type 1’s simply because MLM has been around for over 50 years and has burned through a lot of people… and those people have spread ‘fear of MLM’ among most of their friends.

Those are the people for which the opener, “Hey Clyde…ever done any MLM? (WFA) So.. you’ve probably discovered that MLM sucks, right? (WFA).

At that point, the approach originated by Markethive CEO Tom Prendergast, i.e. the three magic questions, is appropriate.

(NB: WFA= wait for answer)

But how do you approach the Type 3’s, the people still laboring under the delusion that their MLM is somehow different or better even though their products barely retail (if at all) and the average person in their 'deal' seldom makes any money?

This is an important question because, as Ryan Gunnison, founder of MLMRecruitsOnDemand says, it just makes more sense to build an MLM business with people who know something about it than people who don’t.

And think there is a growing number of recruit candidates out there, Type 2’s, because (a) MLM’s have gotten better at marketing their ‘Busted Hopes and Broken Dreams’, and (b) more people are being forced to try MLM because there simply aren’t any better options (or at least it seems that way to them).

So, if it’s foolish to hit those people in the face with the statement, “Can we agree that MLM sucks”, because their defences are immediately going to go up, what can we say to get and keep their attention long enough to point out that if they are in just about any company except Valentus, they are (1) making a bad business decision and (2) not treating people like they themselves would like to be treated?

I think it’s something along the lines of:

  • You’re doing an MLM business now, right?

  • Are you still in that MLM company you were telling me about?

  • What’s that MLM company you were telling me about the other day?

  • Etc.

In other words… asking a seemingly innocent question. In most cases, if they still are in that particular MLM they’re going to be eager to have somebody ask about it rather than hold up a Cross.

And here’s where we get the real vaccine that we’re trying inject into their infected mind. I already mentioned it above but I’ll do so again, in slightly different terms, and then back it up.

MLM does suck. Tom is right.

Tom is right because MLM products rarely if ever compete ‘in the real market’. 99.5% of the time MLM products are something that nobody really needs, very few really want, very few can easily afford, and pretty much nobody wants to sell.

This type of consumer advantage very rarely, if ever, applies to MLM products. In almost every instance, people get into MLM companies and knowingly buy overpriced products which they often don’t even want or need on the carefully encouraged expectation that they’ll be able to get rich by recruiting an army of other similarly short-sighted consumers into doing the same thing.

The full FTC report on Herbalife noted that Herbalife had (and probably still has) a turnover rate of approximately 50%!! What’s doubly sad is that these statistics (for public companies) readily available in SEC-required financial reports. But..nobody knows it.

What moral, ethical person would knowingly do such a thing? And my point is, doesn’t the Golden Rule say, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”?

Sure it does. So…since when is it Kosher to screw our friends by getting them into something which directly harms them. The summary of the recent $200 Million settlement between the US Federal Trade Commission and once-mighty Herbalife pretty much said that hardly anybody made any money with Herbalife.

But Herbalife was just an obvious target for the FTC. The FTC could have grabbed a random name out of a hat of the top 20 MLM’s and probably prosecuted the same case successfully.

So we can rest assured that those Type 2’s we talk to are most likely not making any money. And even if they are, it’s very difficult. Our challenge is to trigger their pain-points and get them to think about it without taking it as a personal attack.

I think we can do by simply saying, “How’s that working out for you?”

If they spout any of the motivational, public relations B.S that they’ve been conditioned and/trained to say, we need to dig a little deeper. And I think one of the best ways to do that (especially for us in Markethive), is to ask:

“What’s your biggest problem in your business right now?”

That sounds pretty innocent, doesn’t it?

How could anybody object to that question?

It seems to me that almost any reasonable or hypothetical answer to that question can be turn to a discussion pointing to Markethive and/or Valentus.


First of all, those of us in Markethive know that even though our system is still being polished in a few areas, it still works pretty well and beats the hell out of any other online marketing tool that any MLM company has.

Secondly, we can prove that our weight loss coffee product meets any and every criteria for being a good business decision.

Let’s look at that issue a bit:

Valentus’s great tasting coffee, even for a consumer with no interest in the business side of Valentus and who only buys 3 boxes a month (not the lower cost per box Ruby pac of 16 boxes that ‘we’ talk about most of the time), is still less than the $2.70 per cup that this article last year in US News and World Report cited as the US average.

The numbers aren’t rocket-science. You buy eggs by the dozen, nails by the pound, milk and gas by the gallon, and coffee buy the cup. Even buying just the 3 box pac of Valentus coffee, the consumer pays approximately 20% less.

20% day in and day out, for something that many people consider a habit…it’s nothing to sneeze at. Can Herbalife or Amway or Shaklee or NuSkin or any of those other companies do that for their customers?

And that doesn’t even factor in the fact that Valentus coffee isn’t just coffee…it’s healthy coffee that is proven to help people lose weight and/or inches.

Plus, which opportunity is easier to ‘sell’.

  • Opportunity A — “Yes, it costs more and you don’t really need it but you’ll make your money back and even more… by romancing and hyping all your friends and joining ‘us’ in the NFL Club (No Friends Left) on our great trips where we celebrate our psuedo-success with all our other self-centered friends. Or….

  • Opportunity B —  Take that money you spend now of regular coffee, drink ours (which is better, healthier, and cheaper), plus… get ‘in the business for a measly $20, pass out a few samples on a regular bases, and/or ask people, ‘Who do you know who likes great coffee and would like to lose a few pounds and/or inches?’

It’s not a hard conclusion to reach for the average mind. I’m thinking that many people, regardless of where they are with their present MLM company, will realize that they don’t have a Unique Selling Proposition (USP) anywhere near that powerful.

I’m thinking that the average MLMer knows that their products are hard, if not impossible, to retail. But most of them are getting a lot of pressure from their upline and their company to retail more and it’s making them very uncomfortable because it’s simply not practical for 99.9% of the MLM companies in the industry.

In Summary:

  1. We need to carefully consider our approach to people and nuance it to whether they are Type 1’s, 2’s, or 3’s.

  2. We need to understand human nature and not antagonize or scare away our prospects with the ‘ice bucket challenge’ of assaulting the integrity of their present MLM company (if they have one).

  3. We need to emphasize that Valentus coffee is priced right to dominate a huge market (i.e. single-serving retail coffee) and, because it sells on eBay, it's a Total No Risk proposition.

Getting involved with the business opportunity side of Valentus makes sense from a business and an ethical perspective.

New Markets and Trends Merge Into Record-Shattering Success For Seasoned Entrepreneur



New Markets and Trends Merge Into Record-Shattering Success For Seasoned Entrepreneur


Markethive.com Founder and CEO, entrepreneur, and innovator Tom Prendergast was recently quoted to say, “With the advent of a real Market Network (i.e. Markethive) and an emerging, real customer centric network marketing company (i.e. Valentus), even I was surprised at the ease of building a new empire in this industry”.

In one of his recent online training conferences, Tom explained the evolution of his contrarian philosophy and how he arrived at his present success-maverick by saying:

“I have been an advocate for ending the business practices of buying and selling leads, spam emailing, spam faxes, telemarketing, pop-up ads, billboard ads, and the whole practice known as outbound marketing.”

“In the old days, before the internet came into its prime, these practices worked somewhat but over recent years they have become less and less effective and more and more resented by the general public. I should know because I’ve been using and watching the growth of the internet since its very early days going back to 1991.”

Even before the advent of the internet, Tom was a creative and competitive marketer, running his own ad agency in Silicon Valley and deeply involved in the emerging technology of that time. Within just a few years of that time, Tom was introduced to Network Marketing and he found it very fascinating that anyone with some skill and determination could have a reasonable chance to build a livable income on the internet.

This realization nurtured his empathetic support of struggling prodigies, up and coming entrepreneurs, and anyone who had greater dreams than the typical job afforded them. Tom says, “Although I was aware of buying mailing lists for my ad agency in the 80’s, I was not aware of that technique being used by MLMers to call people supposedly interested in a business opportunity.”

Tom remembers how, much to his shock, he found that most MLM industry leaders of that time who had large followings would tell those they recruited into their pyramid schemes to buy these leads and cold-call them.

Note: keep in mind that these people had very small or nonexistent spheres of influence… especially if they had already been in a network marketing company before.

Tom says, “My instincts told me this was a bad idea and a serious mistake. But these “leaders” promoted this technique because they had no other real options, ability, or intentions to help these people who had just enrolled into one of their deals which always turned out to be just another ‘Hopes and Dreams’ bait-and-switch game.”

This mind-set was painfully illustrated to Tom in a relationship with a friend of his at the time (let’s call him ‘David’) who had a talk show, had published several books, had a strong sphere of influence, had just joined a newly launched MLM deal, and was conducting a teleconference call with all his new recruits.

On that call, David told all the 1000’s of listeners to go to his friend John (i.e. David’s friend) and buy the leads (jwhich John’s company had alledgedly pre-interviewed) for approximately $199 per 100 leads.

Tom remembers his experience with no great joy:

“This was the mid-1990’s. I bought 100 of these leads, costing me $1000, and called them all… and the results were as follows: 80% insults, 15% hang-ups, and the rest ‘no answer’. Not one of the people I talked to remembered any interview. And the rejection level was as high as it gets.”

Tom soon realized that this was an experience that would eliminate anybody new to MLM from any further interest in it…or at least from ‘buying leads’. This is the kind of rejection only ‘boiler room’ telemarketers and well-seasoned sales people can long endure and it is immediate and certain Death to the average person excited about pursuing their dream by working their new MLM opportunity… regardless of how much they like the product.

Two Powerful New Concepts In Internet Business

As the internet seeps into the fabric of global and local business, the evolution of technology and thinking always brings new opportunities for those perceptive enough to see it. Two fairly new concepts are generating a lot of interest for opportunity seekers.

Those two new concepts are (1) Customer Centricity and (2) Inbound Marketing. Think of them like a brother and sister, i.e. different but related and mutually supportive.

Customer Centricity

Tom believes that Amazon.com is the best current example of customer centricity. Very few people see any connection between Amazon and the MLM industry but Tom has been advocating that MLM companies become customer centric for many years. Since a company’s distributors are, in one sense, their ‘customers’, it only makes sense that MLM companies would treat their Distributors very well…but Tom says most don’t.

Tom says, “Less than 1% of MLM industry leaders understand customer centricity and the other 99% are uninterested in it. These companies continue their traditional modus operandi of selling ‘Hopes & Dreams’ wrapped extravagantly in thinly disguised pyramid schemes with overpriced products which rarely do what they are claimed to do and which are difficult if not impossible to the average person to retail.”

This is like running a car without oil for an extended period of time: it might appear to work for a while but when the engine starts smoking, as we see in the MLM industry now, you know it’s too late.

There have, however, been a few MLM companies which made a weak effort to become customer centric. One of these companies, Trivita, abandoned their customer centric efforts when new management was ‘turned by the dark side’ and that decision is destroying the company as commissions have been cut several times during the last three years, dissension is widespread within Distributor ranks, and an accelerating exodus ‘for the door’ if discernible at all levels.

The second company which tried to be customer centric is Beachbody. Beachbody offered a form of Distributor Acquisition based primarily on infomercials (as did Trivita) but the effectiveness of that method of advertising is plummeting dramatically because of falling viewership of traditional cable and ‘dish’ TV networks.

Bottom line… both these companies are in serious trouble.

Tom says that he doesn’t think most companies in the MLM industry are too big to change… even if they wanted to (which very few do). But, those who do chose to embrace this new Customer Centric paradigm must follow these guidelines:

  1. The company focus first on the needs of the customer. Not the Distributor.

  2. Distributors must be able to successfully retail their products at a profit, irrespective of the business opportunity, to retail customers and/or on ecommerce platforms like eBay, Amazon, Craigslist, etc.

  3. A virtual warehouse supporting the distributor by allowing them to purchase in bulk for greater savings while the inventory is kept at the company until the distributor or a customer needs it drop shipped.

  4. The availability of cooperative advertising partnerships which allow the distributor to partner with the company and/or other distributors to share in generated customers and/or recruits at a reduced cost. This has been done by a few companies and it does work.

  5. Other modern technology that should be brought into play are 800 ph# platforms, self-replicated ecommerce site for Amazon, eBay, etc., shopping carts for 3rd level distributors domains, and social media marketing apps which enable easy selling and purchasing on social markets.


‘Good enough’ isn’t good enough anymore. With the marketplace awash in innovation and technology, i.e. innovation which does put the customer right in the center of the equation, yet almost none of it being used my MLM companies… it’s no wonder that most of them are dying on the vine while others fall flat on their faces after their expensive, Hollywood style launches.

It takes a lot more than a slightly attractive website, a celebrity spokesperson, a few halfway decent videos, and a cute infographic for the company comp plan to ensure company success today.

What’s Next?

It is only a matter of time before a young, bold, tech and marketing savvy entrepreneur launches the first true customer centric MLM company similar to the above-mentioned guidelines. Tom and the community members at Markethive believe that when somebody does launch such a company the world will quake, the swamps will empty and the first truly multi-trillion MLM enterprise will rise to stand equally with other successful trailblazers like Facebook, Google, PayPal, etc.

Such a company will use Inbound Marketing rather than Outbound Marketing techniques.

Old school MLM marketing is almost totally ‘outbound’ marketing oriented. Successful MLM companies must use Inbound Marketing. The difference is that ‘outbound’ marketing is hunting´´ for customers and recruits whereas ‘inbound’ marketing attracts´´ customers and recruits.

The Market Network – The New Leading Edge Of Digital Business and Society

But if there is anything else (and there is!), a magical new catalyst, in the digital world… it’s the Market Network.

What is the Market Network?

Let’s put it in perspective first:

First there was direct selling, then there was direct selling companies, then there was MLM companies with their deceptively alluring, misapplied, and ultimately corrupting element of recruiting, then…there was the internet.

The internet and particularly Facebook and Youtube, had a profound affect on business, marketing, and even the MLM industry. But it only went as far as social media.

There is something else and this is exactly what Markethive is… the first fully functional Marketing Network because it combines the three elements of a Market Network:

  1. A social community united around a shared theme (e.g. entrepreneurship)

  2. An organic virtual marketplace´´ of buyers and sellers.

  3. SaaS (Software as a service to facilitate transactions among the community).

The marketplace is a place for transactions among community members. Examples are eBay, Etsy, Uber, and LendingClub.

Networks provide the social element, i.e. a person’s identity, and allows everybody to communicate everybody else. Think Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

The SaaS is software, e.g. the proprietary functionality freely available to all Markethive members and which Markethive can use to allow its members to form Market Networks with companies like Valentus and possibly in the future…others.

Tom says, “The amazing embodiment of these concepts is what we see today with the joint venturing between Dave Jordan’s Valentus company and an elite group of Markethive community members. Markethive was created for a time such as this.”

Does anybody remember, “Build it and they will come”?

Guess what?

It’s been built and they’re here.

Tom told his Valentus Team members recently, “Valentus has experienced record growth in record time and by all indications is about to enter ‘Momentum’. Only with a company like Valentus could I have reached the levels I have in record-breaking time. And we haven’t fired the “main guns” of our most powerful Markethive technology yet. You ain’t seen nothing yet!”

Tom credits much of his success to Valentus’s foundational, weightloss coffee product. People respond well to our unique question, “Who do you know who likes coffee and would like to lose some weight?” The fact that the product is priced to sell well even at retail is just an extra.”

The bottom line here is that Valentus’s explosive growth is because it’s a real business founded on a basic principle of of Business 101: “Buy low and sell high!”

Tom told his group, “I give credit for the record-breaking growth of my little Valentus distributorship to the unique and timely partnership between Markethive and Valentus. Indeed Inbound Marketing and the first fully functional Market Network has found the first truly customer centric company in the MLM industry and I know that others who join our unique team will experience similar success if they work hard.”

Today’s MLM Industry – Turned by The Dark Side

Today’s MLM Industry – Turned By The Dark Side

Yes, it’s true. The MLM industry has been under a lot of fire lately and justifiably so. If you know anything about the industry you know that the FTC recently slapped Herbalife with a $200,000,000 fine. But does that mean the MLM model is fundamentally wrong?

No, it doesn’t.

The only thing that’s ‘wrong’ in the MLM industry is the attitude that has pretty much permeated it over the last 20+ years, i.e. the attitude that it is OK to sell hopes and dreams instead of real value and results and the attitude that it is OK to sell overpriced crap as long as the top guys and gals got rich doing it.

Is there a better way?  

Is there a way that’s a win-win-win for the consumer (most importantly)-the Distributor- and the Company?

Yes there is.

And would you like to know what that ‘secret sauce’ of MLM success is?

The answer is that above all a successful MLM company must:

  1. Have a superlative and affordable product that brings real value to the consumer.

  2. The consumer must want to purchase that product regardless of whether there is an opportunity connected with it or not. And….

  3. The company must consider the customer first and foremost.

In other words, if it won’t sell at retail in the ‘open market’ for more money than the distributor pays the company for it at wholesale, it’s not a good deal for anybody and it’s certainly not a smart business opportunity financially or ethically, for the Distributor.

At Markethive, we coined a term for these characteristics (and several others).

We say that these kinds of MLM companies are ‘customer centric’. We believe that the MLM companies who survive the increasing government regulatory scrutiny(as evidenced by Herbalife’s fine) and an increasingly more savvy consumer will be few and far between. Those MLM companies which continue to operate with the ‘Old School’ MLM mentality won’t be around much longer.

We know of only one company which today is truly customer centric. More about that company below.

Network Marketing is in trouble but it’s not likely to die overnight.

Here's why the industry is in trouble: 

First of all, millions of people still realize they don’t have any other viable choices. And the fact is that while most MLM opportunities do ‘suck’, Network Marketing done-right (!) is still a fair shot at success for more people than any other business model.  

Secondly, it is unfortunate but true that the traditional Network Marketing industry has gotten pretty good at selling ‘hopes and dream’… even though that’s about all they have to sell. But still, the hopes-and-dreams model of recruiting still for them. At least for now.

They know that the average person is going to recruit one or two people and then they’ll be gone. And then the company will recruit more starry-eyed newbies and the cycle will repeat itself over and over and over.

But is this really success and are these companies really successful?

Many informed observers think that they are not. And we tend to agree.

Here’s how to spot an MLM company not likely to make it:

  • Claims to ‘sell’ a product but hardly any retail sales are actually made and the ratio of Distributors to actual customers is 9:1 (or worse!)

  • Distributors buy products mostly to maintain commission rank and not for real retail sales or voluntaryor preferential consumption.  

  • Only the top leaders make big money and hardly anyone even breaks even.

  • The company spends lavishly on Hollywood type ‘events’ rather than helping the Distributor.

  • The company does not encourage or support the Distributor in using modern technology to sell effectively in the digital age.

Those are just a few of the signs of a ‘bad’ MLM company.

The fact is that the vast majority of traditional MLM companies have forgotten something which is truly critical to their own survival and it has nothing to do with how many distributors the company has or how big their distributor teams are.

The really important metric is, ‘how many people really buy their product because they like it and how many of them keep buying it regardless of whether or not they have any interest in the business opportunity or not? If a product won’t sell on it’s own, at retail, and if average distributors can’t make money in the opportunity, it is neither a sustainable market nor is it a sustainable business opportunity.

In fact, one of the biggest reasons why there are so many X-MLM distributors floating around, with their horror stories about their past ‘MLM opportunity’, is because they were all told that their first priority should be to recruit more distributors rather than make retail sales. I’ve been through that and probably YOU have too, right?

Of course, if you’ve been in Network Marketing before you know that few if any Network Marketing companies have affordable products that people really want to buy irrespective of the business opportunity.

MLM distributors have always been told that high turnover was normal and that the reason they couldn’t large organizations was that they didn’t really try, they didn’t ‘want it bad enough’, or that it was supposed to take a long time to ‘make it up on the stage with the superstars’ getting the big checks.

You’ve probably heard that too, right?

Sadly, many people ‘bought’ that line of thinking and kept trying and trying and getting more and more frustrated until not only all their money was gone but so were the vast majority of their friends. Maybe you know what the NFL club is. That’s the “No Friends Left” club, right?

The reality in the MLM industry is that very few MLM products are truly an essential or highly valued part of the average person’s lifestyle. And those that do have some unique features are almost always so expensive that they qualify as luxuries that don’t fit into most people’s budget especially in these financially stressed times. 

And that’s not to mention that some MLM products are complete hoaxes OR there are cheaper versions of the same product available on the open market.

That’s why the image above is the image that most people associate with Network Marketing or MLM opportunities. How many times have you and your friends made jokes about this? It’s also the reason why many people only dream about but never expect to find a really good Network Marketing company.

This is the image that turns people off about Network Marketing and drives so many sincere, enthusiastic, hard-working distributors out of the industry. But this is NOT Valentus!

Indeed, sometimes a really remarkable company does come along. A company that has a truly ‘life style’ product, that the distributor can buy in bulk, sell at a legitimate retail profit, have a happy customer base, and (if they so chose) build a network of other happy and successful distributors.

When you find such a company, it really is possible to build a sustainable, profitable business and a family legacy to be proud of.

Another good thing about a good MLM business model is that, if you chose to, you can build your business regionally, nationally, or globally and you can even do most or all of it online (just like Amazon or eBay) if your company is truly progressive. You’re running a real business instead of a recruiting mill.

Companies which focus on only on ‘Hopes and Dreams’ and recruiting are doomed to fail.

The number one goal of every real business since the beginning of time has been customer acquisition… i.e. the ability of the business owner to acquire and retain customers throughout the lifespan of his/her business. An honest Network Marketing company should have the same priority… as Valentus does.

The vision of my group of network marketers is to have more customers than distributors at all times… although we are at the present stage looking for leaders to build an international distribution network of key leaders to take our unique line of weight loss coffee and other great products to the consumer.

And by the way – our almost daily flood of testimonials prove that our products do not disappoint.

Do YOU know anybody who likes coffee and who might want to lose a few excess pounds and/or inches?!

I’ll bet you do 🙂

Let’s sit down and talk about it… (╥︣﹏᷅╥)

Seriously, network Marketing can work for you if you work with the right company like our group of community members here at Markethive, are doing right now. We buy into the supplier company, Valentus, with a business builder pack for $499. This qualifies us at the Ruby level and allows us to buy and sell our products at low, wholesales prices on a monthly basis and maintain a positive cash flow.

Customer Centric Ideas For Network Marketing

Our customers are having fantastic results with our products. Just look and listen to the testimonials on my website, here. With results like these it’s no wonder that our Distributors who simply ‘Sample and Invite’ are doing incredible volume, advancing rapidly, and making money in our organization. Many for the first time ever in MLM.  

It’s a beautiful thing. You’ll be amazed at how your attitude toward Network Marketing will change when you finally start making repeat sales, making real money, and recruiting new team members because if they loved it at retail they knew they’d love it better as a distributor.

As you sell product to your customer base, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that there are lots of people not only who are very receptive to a great tasting coffee that helps them lose pounds and inches but who also are X-MLM veterans who haven’t lost their “Why” or their Dreams and are interested in making some extra money or a replacement income within your team.

There’s no science to explain. It’s just, “You like coffee? Here…Drink this.”

And imagine not being afraid to ask your customers, “Hi! How much weight or inches have you lost?” It’s really exciting to make money with a product that works. No more hoping you won’t have to face your X-Distributors or X-customers. 

We even have proprietary technology, within Markethive, which you can use to create an automated system that drives leads and sales to you or even into your distributor organization. We believe in building deep and strong (and not wide and greedy).

But don’t think that our business opportunity doesn’t require some form of work. It does. Hard work is required no matter what you do in life to reach success. We do run a business but we are very supportive within our team because we believe that ‘a rising tide floats all boats’.

If you’d like to listen to some of our recorded conference calls, you can. And you’ll hear incredible stories of success in short periods of time that are unheard of in other Network Marketing companies…stories that certainly are unheard of for a company like ours that’s only 2 years old (but we’re already approaching $3,000,000 @ month in sales volume).

If you do nothing — you earn nothing. But if you can say, “Do you know anyone who likes coffee and might like to lose weight and inches?, our business is not hard. All you need to do is ask that magic question, give some samples, and follow up.

If you have experience in Network Marketing, you know that companies which have highly demonstrable, affordable, and consumable products (and are well managed) always do very well. We are a company like that.

Matter of fact, our senior leader is Tom Prendergast, CEO of Markethive.com. Tom is a remarkably capable but relatively silent MLM superstar who in his prior MLM company almost put them out of business by recruiting 141,000 customers in just a few months. In his first MLM company several years before that he actually did recruit so many customers that his company did go out of business.

But now we need to talk about YOU

Have you been involved in Network Marketing before?

If so, how long have you been involved in the industry and how many companies have you been with?

How many companies have you been with?

Do you still a Big Dream?

What kind of options do you see in your future right now?

And last but not least, are you open to learning a whole new, customer centric way of building a profitable, fun, and sustainable business with an affordable, high-demand, high-quality product and a record-setting team?

If your answer is "yes" to at least most of these questions, especially the last one, then I would like to talk to you and see if you would be a good fit for our team.

My first requirement is that you need to join me and our team at Markethive. Even if you’re in another MLM company, you can still benefit from the free Markethive membership although you will not get a special extra benefit that we extend to Valentus members… as described below.

Once you’re in Markethive, you’ll need to set up your account and go through the easy and free Alpha Trailblazer upgrade. Then follow the instructions to set up your profile page.

Once that’s done I will connect with you through social media (facebook, linkedin etc.) to exchange phone numbers to discuss our business opportunity with you and ask you to join our Valentus business group within Markethive.

We prefer to go through these steps, just like a job interview, to find those individuals who really qualify. We are real business people who want to make sure that the people who join our business will be ín synch’ with our values and our business model.

We require the purchase of the business builder pack within our organization because you can’t sell from an empty cart and people WILL want the product.

Also, you receive a free Markethive Inbound Marketing platform, along with full training, to promote your Valentus business (and any other business you might be involved in) online. There is no other Inbound Marketing Platform on the internet as powerful as Markethive. Yet, amazingly, it is totally free.

We can do this because Markethive is advertising supported (just like Facebook, YouTube, and many other popular social platforms). No training, tools, or support are withheld even though amazingly our top competitors with Markethive (e.g. companies like Pardot, Marketo, or Eloqua) cost $1,000 or more per month.

Benefits of Joining Our Business at the Business Builder Level

There are reasons and benefits to our Ruby level requirement. The main reason is that as a Ruby Distributor with Valentus you earn higher commissions. You also will advance more quickly and you won’t lose sales by not having inventory. You will get sales if you Sample and Invite.

Note: our product actually sells at a profit on eBay too… if you set it up like we can show you. For that reason, there is zero risk of losing your money with this opportunity and no other company can make that claim and back it up with proof.

But wait…it gets even better!

Remember that ‘extra benefit’ I mentioned?

We also reward those team members who purchase the Ruby Level business builder pack with the affiliate rank in Markethive known as Alpha Entrepreneur! This package is valued realistically at $5000!

When you join our team, we will match your effort 110% as long as you are actively involved in trying to build your business. We won’t give up on you if you don’t.

For myself and our team, I look forward to welcoming you into two remarkable and unique companies… Markethive and Valentus. Buckle up!
