Hey, Market America, isn’t it getting crowded around here? The answer is yes and no. And don’t you love the support, anyway?
Let’s start with the Market America World Conference that sold out the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida, in early February. Loud, boisterous, and encouraging to the many attendees in the audience you might believe it was the bulk of the Market American conference calendar for 2018. In truth, this isn’t close to true, as the company has scheduled a long list of domestic and international conferences and seminars that represent huge learning opportunities for the unfranchise business entrepreneurs around the world. The conferences are not just exercised in lung power and self-congratulations, although that comes with the Market America territory and is a major part of the company’s very supportive agenda.
Whether you sell cars, planes, clothes, shoes, handbags or sporting gear, most people are fully aware that selling takes dedication, commitment, persistence and loyalty to and faith in the products you sell. With that in mind, you could also say selling involves unbridled enthusiasm for your company, your team and your products. With Market America, it turns out, this leaves you a lot to cheer about. But this is also why the company’s administration dedicates so many hours and so much effort in supporting its dedicated unfranchise entrepreneurs. Monetary rewards aside, reaching your potential is the No. 1 goal that the top ranking officers and the Ridinger family have for its growing team.
There are so many training events scheduled it would be difficult to list them here, but suffice it to say there are numerous product symposiums, moving up seminars and training opportunities for health professionals and entrepreneurs alike. There several NutraMetrix training scheduled, certified WebCenter training and motives certification training coming around, as well. Check the company’s event-oriented web pages at http://www.marketamericaevents.com/movingupseminar.html or call 800-232-8590 to reserve a spot at the training of your choice. Remember, some of these events sell out, so it pays to jump on board as early as you can do so.
In truth, the company’s business model is systematic and standardized, offering a chance for tens of thousands of entrepreneurs to reach their potential. Unlike other franchise systems, however, you need never feel you are on your own at Market America. Whether you are establishing your UnFranchise business as a part-time venture or jumping in with both feet in a full-time option, the support is there.
What’s to learn? For one, the system itself is unique. You can’t learn about Market America strategies at your local business school or your nearby community college. Market America is a fully independent, self-sustaining enterprise begun in 1992 that has blossomed into an enormous international business with over $7.3 billion in accumulated retail sales and that isn’t a typo.
With those kinds of sales numbers, the commission on sales is equally stunning: $3.8 billion in combined commissions and retail profits, which, easy math demonstrates, means more than half of all sales goes into the pockets of UnFranchise distributors – and, best of all, this is all done without so much as a dime in monthly fees.
The core product line for the company, which is expanding all the time, now involves hundreds of products that you cannot buy anywhere else. This exclusive product line is backed by extensive company research from trained scientists who conform to rigorous scientific principles before endorsing the health, beauty or nutrition products in the company line.
None of this restricts the UnFranchise developers in the slightest, because Market America has always been a company “without fences,” to put it one way. In the age of the Internet, there are no territorial fences that define where any UnFranchise can operate. If you live in New Jersey and find a customer in California, Hawaii, Vietnam or Brazil, then you are free to do business there if you so desire and can get them the product.
Finding overseas customers may not be so easy to do, but the company’s international footprint is paving the way to offshore markets from Asia to Europe. This type of expansion will only increase Market America’s profile, which benefits UnFranchise owners back in the United States as well.
It is one of the fallacies of business that competition hurts your profits. This simply is not true. Here’s the standard example and see if you can follow the logic.
Let’s start with a pizza parlor on Main Street in a moderately-sized village. When it opens, it has all the pizza business within a five to the eight-mile radius, assuming people eight miles away probably have other options for meals or for pizza.
Then, suddenly, the pizza shop’s owner hears what he thinks is terrible news. Another pizza shop is coming to the village and it’s opening right down the street!

Oh, calamities! Oh, horrors! The owner thinks. There goes half of his business or even more if the other shop makes better pizza or has better prices! And speaking of prices – even worse yet, the original pizza shop owner now thinks he’ll have to slash his prices and his profits to compete with this new upstart.
You will be surprised to find that the pizza shop owner’s fears are unrealistic. A year later, business is booming and profits are up! Why is this?
Well, remember those customers who were five to eight miles away and probably had other options for meals and for pizza? It turns out that with two pizza shops on Main Street in the village, that village has become the place to go for pizza in that area. All the in between customers who didn’t really love the first pizza shop are now driving to the village to try out the new place and finding, along the way, that the old shop really wasn’t as bad as they thought. So some of the sitting on the fence and half of the marginal customers from far away are not flocking to the original store. It turns out, there are plenty enough customers for both stores. The first shop owner just hadn’t realized that while he was all alone as the only store.
That’s right UnFranchise entrepreneurs; it turns out that in some businesses, the more the merrier. The more UnFranchise developers there are, the more customers from all walks of life will hear about Market America products. The increase in demand will help, not hurt, your business. It turns out, the for businesses, to a certain point the old expression is true: The More The Merrier.
